Usual Effects of Mars in 12th House

Mars in 12th house will make you secretive in nature and suppress your emotions. But you will be socially active and appear open and friendly. You may have to constantly travel abroad for work, where your energy will be productive. You may be involved in research-oriented work there, like a scientist, but you will be alone without family. You can also become a writer as the 12th house brings you an expression to portray your experiences very differently from others.

12th House is the house of ‘Moksha’ (liberation) and it affects your subconscious and belief systems. The aggressive energy of Mars in this position blends with your subconscious thoughts and dreams, making you confused and indecisive as you stay lost in your own thoughts. It’s a house of loss and expense; you will waste your energy by job hopping and exploring things. You will not be steady and not stay focussed in one field. Most of your life events, like marriage, will be delayed. This position brings you a lot of anger, frustration and irritation.

This position will make you a spendthrift; but you will have debts because of irrational expenses. Your appearance may be different from your actual persona and your behaviour will always surprise others. You will travel in foreign lands and explore the world and possibilities. But Mars in the 12th house will not make you recognise your own strength, i.e., you will have the ability but will not be able to apply it and gain profit out of it.

The 12th house is also afflicted by hospitalisation and Mars in this space can cause you accidents, cuts and wounds. This position might lead to a loss of morals as well since it’s a house of crime and punishment, for which you will be punished. Further, if Mars is malefic, it will make you a soldier who fights for wrong things. If it is beneficent, you will fight against wrong things. You may become a superintendent, jailor, security guard in a mental asylum, or law protector.

Mars in 12th house will make you aware of enemies who would want to break your relationship with your spouse. However, your spouse, who is argumentative, will challenge the enemies with an intention of protecting the relationship. Nonetheless, 12th house is supposedly not a good place for married life as you will have high sexual expectations if you do not utilise your energy productively.

You will not be able to express your thoughts properly as you would process everything on an emotional aspect. Your dormant behavioural issues become active when you are moody and irritated. It’s important for you to develop self-awareness, no matter how defeated you may feel. This Mars position breeds anger and resentment against others. Due to lack of opportunities or unwillingness to express this overtly, the anger can damage on a subconscious and psychological level. This position builds a natural hostility against others that is in danger of becoming a part of the nature and could spoil your reputation and relations. This position is detrimental to building up wealth and making you wish to acquire the share of others by unfair means.
