March 12th fosters passion and energy within the realm of spiritual matters and private life. In astrology, the planet Mars symbolizes passion, energy, aggression and willpower. When Mars sits in the 12th house, it highlights a capacity to hold strong spiritual beliefs and subjective perceptions. The 12th house is ruled by Pisces and governs self-undoing, private affairs, fantasy, spiritual studies, and the end of Cycles. Here, the planetary energy of Mars serves to embolden and energize the affairs and functions of the 12th house. Additionally, whichever astrology sign happens to occupy this house, Mars will fortify with more boldness, and strength with which it is expressed. Here’s a breakdown of the planet Mars in the 12th house in both the natal chart and as a Transit.


Mars in the 12th house fosters passion that may be hidden from others view. People may not realize or recognize how passionate you are or what you are passionate about.

Mars in the 12th house may also suggest someone who is an impassioned dreamer and someone with an intense vision of what they want and desire. Individuals with this placement in their natal charts are bound to possess a vivid and imaginative inner world that will often spill over into the real world. Their minds are abuzz with ideals and scenarios and fantasies that can be channeled into creative work such writing, art and drama. There is an element of combat and aggression that colors their fantasies and conceptions. They may be inclined to harbor revenge fantasies or envision themselves in heroic situations that only happen in the movies. Mars in the 12th house energizes and lights a fire of inspiration in their psyche and compels these individuals to either act them out explicitly or sublimate it through the art they create or work they do in general. They aspire to greatness in some form or another and could conceivably become very compelling and influential spiritual leaders and gurus.

With Mars in the 12th house, the form of karma that these individuals create for themselves is likely to be both tremendously good or bad. People with Mars in the 12th house can often cause their own undoing through foolish and short-sighted behaviors. They can get caught up with their own perspectives which can often be incomplete and negligent of important and relevant considerations. They tend to see things exactly as they choose to see it and can be in stubborn denial about the truth when it invalidates their conceptions. People with Mars in the 12th house can be masters of fabrication but also victims of their delusions. Overestimating themselves can be a problem as well as a tendency to underestimate others especially opponents. They may have to learn some hard lessons and get burned a few times before they start adjusting their perspective and orienting themselves more accurately with reality.


When Mars transits the 12th house, you can expect accidents and trips to the hospital as well as some mental breakdowns. Mars can precipitate or exacerbate troubling situations often of our own making. At this time, Mars may be compelling you to lash out or commit some foolish action that you will surely regret. The martial energy of Mars can cause us to grossly overestimate ourselves and bite off more than we can actually chew. Setting ourselves up for disappointment and failure due to impulsive and ill-thought out actions is more likely than usual under this transit. Additionally Mars in the 12th house transit may bring about items getting lost as a result of conflict or confrontation. Our passions may turn aggressive and we may feel threatened or attacked by others trying to invade our secrets and private lives. On the positive side, we may feel spiritually inspired and strong in our beliefs however unrealistic or unfounded they may be.
