North Node in the 12th House

Having your North Node in the 12th house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 6th house. This natal placement of the North Node indicates a heavy emphasis on matters concerning one’s deep psyche. The 12th house is responsible for the individual’s subconscious and unconscious, while is also connected with self-sacrifice, secrets, the supernatural and the occult. In addition, the 6th/12th axis shows that your life lesson involves your attitude towards daily routines, the health of your body, while also job and service towards others. As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 12th house must dedicate himself entirely to expanding his spirituality.

The North Node in the 12th house invites them to live an inconceivable experience for them: going green, taking moments of retirement, more and more frequently. For these natives, this idea is at first as incongruous as throwing oneself into the void. We all have deep inside us the fear of being nothing if we do nothing. For these natives this fear is more important than for others. To stop doing is scary for them. They do not feel they exist in inaction.  Basically, all the agitation and energy they deployed to make themselves useful to the point of servility was a way of not facing a form of emptiness of existence that one discovers when more nobody expects anything from us.

Who are we when we are nothing to anyone? This is their big and agonizing question. And their great fear is that the answer to this question looks like “nothing”.

They will learn step by step to find themselves alone in front of themselves in moments where nothing is happening, nothing is to be done to enter into this questioning. Life will give them the wonderful gift for others, but strange for them, to offer them moments of retreat and inactivity more and more frequently. Less work, children moving away willy-nilly from the home… events will leave them more and more free time.

Little by little they will learn to feel in the absence of activity, that there is a real and deep existence which does not need any agitation to be. Meditation, silence will slowly become their friends. They will enter into a relationship with this invisible but very real part of life, this part of existence that we feel intensely, but that we can neither show nor demonstrate.

The North Node in the twelfth house develops in them the means to come into contact with the subtle form of their being. They will gradually discover that their intense need to do things for others concealed a fear that nothing existed beyond form. As they discover and experience life within, they will detach themselves from the need to do things.

They will find a form of energy again, different this time, like something that makes them alive from within and confident that life is flowing through them, that it is always there, whatever they do or don’t do. not.
