Mercury in the Twelfth House


 

Mercury in the twelfth house denotes a peculiarly subtle mind, one loving risks and dangerous adventu s of a secret nature ; if well aspected the native has ability for occultism, and is well able to investigate mysteries or to follow unusual modes of thought. If afflicted, the native, although possessed of undoubted ability, will lack opportunity ; in fact this position usually gives efficiency and practical knowledge which it is found difficult to express. In many cases the native underrates his own powers and is sadly lacking in self-esteem and this, if Mercury be afflicted by Mars or Jupiter, will lessen his conscientiousness. The sign Mercury occupies will considerably modify its influence.
