What placements would make someone have trouble interpreting their own emotions? Like... not a total lack of self-awareness, but if something unexpected happens they don't really know what they feel? Like they have to think about their emotions before they can choose them.

I’m just going to list the placements for emotional self-unawareness, so the ones that are not in bold will be closer to what you’re talking about.

- Moon in the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, or 12th house
- Moon in aspect to Saturn, Neptune, or Pluto
- ASC / Mercury / Mars in aspect to Neptune
- Saturn or Neptune in the water houses (4th / 8th / 12th)
- Underdevelopment of the feminine planets and/or water houses
- Water house stellium (especially involving Saturn/Jupiter/Neptune)
- Southern / Western hemisphere dominance

*8th house / Pluto influence & Jupiter’s presence in the water houses can create a lot of emotional overwhelm (like a water house stellium) that makes it difficult to know what you’re feeling.
**Saturn influence on the moon / water houses creates an aversion to emotions, especially the expression of them, and can cause repression.

Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles that nobody knows about.
