I always get messages asking for advice on how to “bring out” “lighten up” or “help” people with 12th house planets
you can’t! I don’t know how to explain it in a way people will Get It
people with 12th house planets typically (keyword: typically) lean towards introversion. 12th house planets draw their energy from solitude and alone time, because the energy of these planets are usually drained pertaining to what they represent. For example, Venus in the 12th natives are drained from social situations, relationships/connectivity, or giving/receiving affection. This means “bringing them out” will only deprive them of their energy and strength (especially sun, the literal life & vital force). It’s almost like asking how to make them more “outgoing” for your convenience and that defies their nature and suggests introversion and/or seeking out alone time is something that needs to be cured, when it’s not.
The 12th house is the house of sorrow, there are strong chances that these people have been through difficult situations pertaining to their 12th house planets that cause them a lot of grief. Such as with moon in the 12th, their feelings were neglected and never their own, or mars in the 12th tends to suffer from violence and inner aggression in childhood that never had a proper outlet. Telling them to “lighten up” is suggesting they should disregard their experiences. This sorrow is usually their motivation to help others, as this is the house of sacrifice.
You can’t help people with 12th house planets. This is not being fatalistic, this is not saying their doomed. What this is saying, the only people who can help them is themselves. The 12th house is the house of “hidden enemies” and people with planets here don’t realize that they are their own “hidden enemy,” because no one likes to think they are the ones holding themselves back. It is part of the karmic lessons involved with the 12th house, to serve or suffer. They “help” themselves when they utilize the planets in the 12th house for the better. You’re not their hero, and you need to realize any ‘help’ you impose on them won’t do anything if they’re not helping themselves.
so enough on asking how to make other people & their 12th house planets “””better””” leave them alone and worry about yourself
