Finally, the last one of Lord through Houses series.
12th house lord sitting in 12th house.
So first of all, let's see what 12th house represents -
12th house is house of Losses, Expenses, Isolated Places, Spirituality, Foreign Lands, Foreign Companies, Imagination, Sub-Concious Mind, Charity, Donation, Asylums, Jails, Hospitals, Hidden Talent and Secrets of Other World etc.
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.
Now, what does it mean to have 12th house lord sitting in 12th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 12th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 12th house of horoscope only.
Now, what is the impact of having 12th house lord sitting in 12th house?
1st of all any planet that is sitting in its own sign is actually the strongest. It is even stronger than exalted planet and the reason is that everyone feels most safe at his own home. So, a planet sitting in its own sign feels like he is at his home and also strengthens the house it is sitting in. This position would mean that person is quite happy with his benefits from Foreign Lands and MNCs. He is content with his spiritual life and spiritual beliefs. He is happy with the Spiritual Gurus he got in life. The person is firm with his spirituality and there is no confusion about it. The karaka of the planet involved will be instrumental in making person gain from Foreign Lands. With malefic planets, person may be kind of spendthrift here.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 12th house Lord in 12th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Virgo Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 12th house with Leo sign and sits in the Leo only. This shows that person may be in high authority position in Foreign Lands or in Foreign Companies. This certainly shows someone serving the Govt at Foreign Lands like Ambassadors or Diplomats. This also suggests that father may be in similar work at foreign lands. But as Sun also burns the things where it sits, it shows some real ego battles with Spiritual Gurus. They will always feel to have superior Spiritual Beliefs.
Moon - So it is Leo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 12th house with Cancer sign and sits in 12th house only. This shows someone in Nourishing or Taking Care of people. As 12th house relates to hospitals, it certainly shows someone in health care field or taking care of motherly ladies. They may be in this field in Foreign Lands. They feel emotionally secure and peaceful in healing people. Here, Mother may be in similar field. They find their peace of mind in Creative Imagination and thinking about hidden & other worldly things.
Mars - Mars can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - So if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 12th & 7th house and sits in 12th house in Aries sign. This shows someone working as Soldier or Athlete and travelling to Foreign Lands. They will have individualistic approach towards spirituality. It means they will be adamant on their beliefs and may not be receivable to other beliefs. As Mars also rules 7th house of marriage/spouse, it may be that person reaches Foreign Lands after getting married.
Sagittarius Ascendant - Now if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 12th house in Scorpio sign. This shows someone who is strong-willed and dominant to achieve his goals in fields of Sports or related with his Children as Mars also rules the 5th house here. As Scorpio brings transformations, this shows a person who goes through lots of changes related to spiritual beliefs and in matters related to children but as Mars is in own sign, person will be head-strong to go through the changes. This person can be very active in Occult and Mysticism too but may be in darker side of Occult like Black Magic and Tantra. Both positions of Mars here will lead to dominance struggle and arguments with his Guru.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Mercury rules 12th & 3rd houses and sits in 12th house in Gemini. This shows a person who is very communicative and imaginative about other worldly matters. This can also show a person involved in Foreign Trades and import-export Business. But as Mercury also rules 3rd house of communications, best thing for this person is to be in the field of Creative and Imaginative writing. They can be great authors on Spirituality, Business and Other Worldly Things.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, then Mercury rules 9th and 12th house and sits in 12th house in Virgo, where it is exalted. Here, Mercury rules 9th house of Higher Learning, Religion, Philosophy too. So, it shows someone who is into detailed analysis and studies of Philosophies of World or Different Religion. They will be quite perfect in communications and managing things. They can be working in Foreign Lands as Teacher or Spiritual Counselors. They want to be perfect in matters of their Spirituality hence they dig into details and be critical about different philosophies of the world. As it may lead to trouble, they may like to control this habit. But a very good position overall.
Venus - Venus also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 12th & 5th house and sits in 12th house in Taurus sign. This shows a very creative person behind the scenes. As Venus is Creativity, rules 5th house of Creativity and is sitting in 12th house of working behind the scenes it shows someone in media, movie or art business but working in production stage. It also shows that person will get wealth from his creative endeavors. It also shows that person may have a love affair with a Foreigner, and a guy will certainly marry a Foreigner.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 12th house in Libra. Almost similar things about relations can be seen here as Venus also rules 7th house of Marriage. Here, person moves to foreign lands due to his spouse. Person may be working in Financial field in MNCs or may be working as Diplomat or Lawyer as Libra represents these 2 professions normally. Again, person can be very creative and again he will gain wealth from Foreign Lands.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 12th & 3rd house and sits in 12th house in Sagittarius Sign. This shows a Professor/Teacher in Foreign Universities in the Subjects of Religion, Philosophy and Spiritual. As Jupiter also rules 3rd house of Counselling, it can also make someone a religious preacher or spiritual counselor. As Jupiteris karaka of Wealth, person can get wealth from Foreign Lands in matters of Religion and Philosophy. This is a very highly learned person.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 12th house in Pisces. This is even better position as Jupiter is in Spiritual sign of Pisces and in the house of Spirituality. As Jupiter also rules 9th house of Religion and Philosophy, this is a true Spiritual Guru. Meeting this person is like meeting Gautama Buddha. Nothing more to say.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Aquarius/Capricorn) as 12th house lord, Saturn in 12th house (for Pisces/Aquarius Ascendants respectively) indicates that access to foreign lands or foreign travels came late in life. In early life, they may have tried a lot to reach to foreign lands but their may be one or the other obstacles. Going to foreign land or returning from foreign land will be equally tough. It also shows that person is frugal or miser and doesn't spend a lot. In early life, they will never get good Spiritual Gurus but through age when they reach 30s, they get some old and wise Guru. Spirituality develops late in life. Profession wise, they may be in the field of Law or they may be working in Corporate. They can also be serving their home Govt in Foreign Lands.
Rahu - If Rahu is 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 12th house in Aquarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aquarius in 12th house will transform Rahu as Saturn as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Aquarius in 12th house basically shows a person who either works and gains in MNCs in Technical/Scientific field or he is a great inventor himself. He brings new technological inventions to make life easy for all. They are the greatest techno-brains of all time. They develop Google, FB, Twitter and Whatsapp. Newest Scientific inventions can be seen from this position. World needs these guys desperately. They can have Weird/Unusual Spiritual Beliefs.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 12th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the spiritual beliefs of others. They are better following their own spiritual path in life. They never find themselves agree with the concepts of spirituality of others and always find fault there. Similarly, they reach foreign land but don't find anything of interest there and feel isolated. At the same time, they are very research oriented and scientific people. They approach spirituality in scientific manner and through lots of research and study. It is one of the most prominent Moksha Margi position. They are here to seek truth their own way. Another position where person may have weird religious/spiritual view. They can be great Occultist too.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
