People born with the South Node in 12th house have a strong tendency to take refuge in an imaginary world to escape the world. As children, they were able to experience disturbing things that offended their sensitivity to the point that they felt the need to cut themselves off from the world. To protect themselves, their defense was to create an imaginary world made up of personal daydreams in which they took the habit of withdrawing. In this world, they have long felt protected from the madness of the world, the absurdity of adults and their insensitivity.

Later, having become adults in their turn, these people encounter difficulties in taking charge of their daily lives, finding their rhythm of life which will allow them to work, to work concretely in their lives. The encounter with everyday life, the harshness of the organization of day-to-day life, which requires a strong presence, go beyond them. Getting into the movement sometimes seems insurmountable to them and very often, they go back to their imaginary world to take a little bubble of breathing or anxiety depending on the theme that fed them. They know how to wander there and feel all kinds of emotions and satisfactions far from the physical world.

For them, defining themselves in a job is difficult. They may want to express things, but when it is necessary to align the tasks, which make a desire become a work in formation, it requires a superhuman effort from them and they let go of the matter to return to the sensations of their daydreams. , which can be soft, but also sometimes hide darker sides.
They are not lazy, to believe it would be to misunderstand them. Basically, when they let go of a task, it’s not out of laziness but out of a form of moral exhaustion.

Sooner or later, either driven by the need to find a job to meet their needs, or tired of not being able to achieve what they want and weary of their daydreams, which become so many prisons, they will have to enter life daily. They will be pushed to free themselves from their world which limits them and makes them unable to participate fully in the life of society.
