Moon in the 12th House Transit
When your moon transits the 12th house there will be an inclination to withdraw from the world emotionally. You may draw into yourself and become more distant and secluded socially. You may be in the mood to sit in your feelings and dwell on negative experiences both recent and not so recent. You may be in the mood to listen to sad music or write songs about breakups and other sad things.
Although you may feel depressed at this time, you may find it therapeutic to think about a lot of things and allow the emotion to wash over you in a cathartic and even spiritual way. At this time you may feel the need to gain some closure on some matters that have persisted for longer than you’d like. If some type of misfortune or trouble befalls you, you will likely feel a sense of passive resignation to it rather than become terribly upset. You may be motivated to try and attract better Karma by being nice to others and making an effort to help them.
It is important to try and be open and honest with both yourself and others, as any number of secrets and subterfuges you may be juggling at this time can likely come crashing down right now. You may feel afraid to express something to someone or reveal something about yourself that you feel can sabotage you in some way. In other cases you may be heartsick about something that is coming to an end now or in the near future. It can be something as innocuous as the end of a book you’ve been reading or as grave as the end of a terminally ill loved one.
For whatever reason you may be feeling lonely and isolated right now and may be in need off some type of reassurance or spiritual support. Mistakes, childhood memories and disappointments from your past can crop up in your mind at this time and have a way of putting the damper on your emotional state and mood. You may feel suspicious that someone you care about is hiding something from you or being unfaithful. Your perceptions may be a bit clouded in part due to your own projections about the things you may be hiding yourself.
Your instincts may often deceive you and your feelings may not be in sync with reality. Nevertheless, now is an opportune time to tie up some loose ends and find resolution so that you can move on to other things and new opportunities. Take care not to shoot yourself in the foot or stand in your own way. Embrace your power to turn things around and make better decisions. Give yourself permission to be happy and release yourself from the bondage of suffering and self-imposed misery. Self-flagellation is not a virtue.
