The twelfth house focuses on the subconscious.
Our subconscious self is the most important part of us. It makes up our thoughts and personalities. It is like our soul. While our subconscious is not the same as our conscious, the two are closely related. In the dictionary, the conscious is defined as being aware of the world around us and responding to our surroundings.
On the other hand, the subconscious is defined as the part of our mind that influences our lives but that we are not fully aware of. The subconscious is said to dictate feelings and instant reactions while the conscious is said to be able to figure out problems and think through actions.
The twelfth house in astrology can be a confusing thing. After all, how are we supposed to learn from something that we aren’t even fully aware of? The funny thing about the subconscious is that it influences much more than we fully realize. Much of our emotions are determined by our subconscious. Even though many people would like to think of themselves as rational people who always think about what they do or say before they do or say it, emotional responses really do affect a lot of our decisions.
Perhaps the 12th house isn’t trying to say that we should try to focus on our subconscious, as that would actually make it our conscious, but instead we should pay more attention to the signals that our body is trying to give us. After all, intuition is a powerful thing.
If something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t. If you have a good feeling about something then you should go for it. After all, there’s no reason to think that your body would lie to you. Follow your gut. This is a good general rule for most situations.
The twelfth house is the last house in the cycle. Some people may think less of the twelfth house because of this. This actually could make the house all the more important though. It is the end of a cycle, which could make for a great or poor beginning in the next cycle. This depends on how you act when your sign is in the twelfth house. Pay close attention to what your subconscious is trying to tell you. Don’t try to change what it says to you, just listen.
