As the Sun in Scorpio eases deeper into my twelfth house, the awareness I need more time alone is growing. Over the weekend we had a house full of company of Saturday and then my Aries took advantage of a break in the weather to work on one of his jobs Sunday, giving me a day to myself. It felt soooo good it brought home the realization of how much I needed it.
Saturn in Scorpio is beginning its two year stay in my twelfth house, increasing sensitivity to twelfth house matters in general. Among other things the twelfth house is associated with monasteries and ashrams, places of silent contemplation. Therefore it makes sense we tend to retreat in some way from the hustle and bustle of everyday life when the Sun transits our twelfth house. Saturn’s presence emphasizes the need to acknowledge and to go within for reflection.
Often those of us with personal planets in the twelfth are more sensitive to “loud” people who take up all the space and air in any room they’re in. This can be true for those with their Moon in Pisces who also require more solitude than most. I don’t know many creative types who can work in a space with lots of noise and confusion either.
If I look at a simple solar chart with Libra on the Ascendant, then the Scorpio Sun is crossing my second house. This brings income and ways of earning money to the forefront, creating an awkward juxtaposition with the Sun transiting the twelfth house in my natal chart. No wonder I often spend a great deal of time thinking about my finances when alone during Scorpio season every year! This situation varies greatly for each individual . . . it’s rare for the natal and solar chart to be the same.
Adding to this transit is another layer of Neptune . . . Neptune at 0° Pisces is trine my 29° Libra Sun now. Lassitude is a common side effect of Neptune-Sun transits and I’ll vouch for that!
Those people with late Scorpio Risings like myself or with Sagittarius Rising are also experiencing the Sun in Scorpio transiting their twelfth house as well as Sagittarius Sun folk who have Scorpio on the twelfth in their solar chart. Just wondering if any of you have been feeling the need for more solitude?
