MOON IN 12TH HOUSE in your Yearly Horoscope
You may not be very open with your feelings when the Moon is in the 12th house of Solar Return.
This can be a time of intense emotions, but commonly they lack a clear avenue for expression.
For one reason or another, you find it difficult to reveal what you are feeling or sensing intuitively.
Even when you do make a revelation, you suspect you are misunderstood or ignored. Others may seem distant or detached, leaving you to cope alone with pressing emotional issues; or you might not have someone immediately available who truly understands what you are feeling.
Is common in the charts of those who have recently changed their environment and entered a new situation where they have not yet had the opportunity to foster strong emotional connections to the people around them.
The perception of emotional loneliness may or may not be accurate; you could simply be more reluctant to disclose your emotions though others are willing to listen.
But there are certain situations associated with the Moon in the 12th house of Solar return which typically warrant emotional restraint.
If you are involved in a clandestine affair, the person you are seeing may not want to get involved emotionally. If you are dealing with the sick, disabled, or dying, you might hide your feelings so as not to convey the full extent of their injury or illness.
If you think that someone has purposefully tried to hurt you, you would not want him or her to see if they have succeeded. Consequently, this can be a time when you keep emotional secrets because of the anticipated reaction to their revelation.
The reasons for emotional restraint are very important. You must ascertain whether or not your situation truly prohibits emotional expression or if your own fears are limiting their expression. Even if your present relationships are restrictive, this does not mean that you cannot or should not find others to confide in. You can cultivate new friendships that allow a greater opportunity for expression.
Learning to express your feelings quietly to those with whom you are most closely involved will be one of the tasks for this year.
You may be socially withdrawn and retiring, preferring to be left alone, withdrawing from the public eye. You might enjoy quiet moments at home with your family, friends, or loved ones instead of social evenings out. You need extra time, and perhaps privacy, for your own interests. If you are normally an outgoing, active person, this may seem like a time of seclusion. If you are romantically involved with someone, you will want to be alone, or may have to be alone. The individual you are involved with might not want to be seen in public.
The Moon in the 12th house indicates that the emotional nature is more sensitive to those in need. This can be a year in which a lot of time is spent helping, nurturing, or caring for others, especially if there is someone close to you who has a health problem.
This Moon placement can suggest that someone close to you, and possibly a family member, is sick or requires hospitalization.
If no one in your family is ill, you might still care for someone who is in need. You can be a Good Samaritan who willingly gives time and energy to assist others.

The danger with this placement is the tendency to get involved with those who refuse to help themselves, e.g., the alcoholic, drug user, unhappily married person, or counseling candidate. You, yourself, could play the victim. If this is the case, seek professional guidance in these matters. If the Moon will cross the Ascendant by progression (approximately one degree per month) during the solar return year, this can indicate a time when emotions are released, or matters emerge more into the open.
