The 12th house

THE 12TH HOUSE (read it as in “The Twilight zone”)

“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… The Twelfth zone.

Rod Serling

Well, maybe for others, the 12th house is easy to describe/perceive. To me it’s like a void. I have too much of an earthy chart (Virgo/mercury sun, Capricorn moon), so when I can’t classify something, be practical and make sense out of it, it’s really hard for me to understand it. This house is not a material nor rational house, it’s not like the 2nd where money is or the 7th where your significant other is… its energy goes beyond placement. Its water, its emotion, its lonely and its forever there, transits or not.

I get the theory though:

-The house of endings, letting go, the ultimate stage of emotional surrender (Pisces energy). It is also the house of karma, subconscious, unknown enemies, imagination, psyche, pain, loses and the gifts you have that must be given to others (and basically everything you would never want to put your hands on). But it is there, in the back of your mind where you can’t reach it until your life shows you something’s not quite right.

-It is also described as the time you spend in the uterus, just before you were born. Therefore, the sign/planets there have a lot to say about your gestation period and how your mother/father dealt with. Also, the planets that do appear in this position, usually feel lost and vulnerable, and it’s really hard for them to express their whole energy.

So, with that said (I’ll probably, eventually, one day, will write about other signs in the 12th house). But for now, since I’m a Capricorn rising/Saturn-return-on-point woman, I’ll focus on that. I understand that this house is about confinement, about giving up something you cherish because you owe it to society and to your past life. There go your fears too, your very illogical ideas, diseases since it opposes the 6th house, the feelings that overwhelm you and I’d like to say that it also includes the emotional wounds that keep you living in vicious cycles (and you’re not completely aware of them).

All of these combined is the energy of the house, then you place the sign in it and voila! It’s probably fear of freedom for me (and all the other things that Sagittarius energy stands for) which I’ll write about in the next post.

Saturn return for capricorn rising

Hello, everyone! I actually thought I forgot my password for this blog so I began another one and now I lost the password for that one. I’m the worst, but I guess it’s a sign that I should keep this one though (or both, since the sun is in Gemini, my sixth house).

I’m almost 29 and I’d like to keep posting about my Saturn return, which I think will be helpful for other Capricorn rising that are in the same position as I am. I know every chart is different but, it is placed now in our 12th house. If anyone could help me define this house, I’ll be forever thankful. So, in the next post I will talk about what I think and I’ve learned is the 12th house about.

Everything.

Sometimes you have to take a step back, let things take their own course and get yourself ready to be someone else’s everything.

Nadis

So far I’ve learned that there are more than 72,000 nadis in our body. According to Yoga, the nadis are the channels of energy, in which it enters and flows through our body.

The three principal nadis are:

Ida, Pingala and shushumna.

Ida and Pingala are the representation of duality. Ida being feminine and Pingala masculine. This is just a way of seeing them because they complement each other.

To activate this first two, there comes respiration (we did this on my first class of meditation and I found it really relaxing).

First you should know that Ida belongs to the left side of your nose and Pingala to the right side. To begin with:

If you’re a woman you should close your right nostril (with your fingers) and inhale for about 2 minutes through your left nostril only. If you’re a man it is the opposite: close your left nostril and inhale through the right one.

After these two minutes you should exchange nostrils (the opposite way) and you should repeat these for about 3 times each nostril.

After this exercise we shall activate SHUSHUMNA, which is not difficult but we barely do anything to work with it. Shushumna is located on your back, right about the hip area. What you do next is you activate the energy flow from Ida and Pingala by walking.

Meditation walking to activate Shushumna:

Begin with your right foot. Slowly lift your right foot (as you would normally do when taking a step) but watch your breathing. This motion (from lifting until your foot is not touching the ground anymore) is the time you should spend inhaling. Then keep the air within you and exhale only when you begin placing your foot again on the floor (exhaling should last until your feet is fully touching the ground. Then repeat with your left foot.

You should keep walking for about 10 to 15 minutes.

The thing about this is that you should be really aware of your respiration, on how long it takes you to stride, keeping your balance and peace of mind all at the same time.

After walking, lay on your side: fetal position and rest for 10 minutes.

I really recommend doing this practice, it really teaches about patience and well, for me it was about understanding how I live in a hurry and how hard it is for me to slow down.
