Nazaudy, a spark in your curious mind

Mercury in House 12

Those with Mercury in House 12 can have introspective, obsessive and private thoughts they may often be unable to express. This placement can indicate someone with an extremely sensitive mind, and one that is highly influenced by the currents. Many astrologers believe this is a weak position for Mercury to be, and state the person feels weak or inferior in some way when communicating. In many ways it can make life difficult on a strictly mecurial level (communicating, speaking and local travelling in the most mundane sense). However, with Mercury here the imagination is heightened, mental psychic powers deepened, and the individual finds a new level of expression. The person can speak and understand images more comprehensively than others, silence speaks louder to them than a room full of voices. Time may be spent in deep study, writing, and reflecting and they are happiest researching or spending time in libraries. Those with this placement have creative powers of the mind to tap into the collective. They draw from the collective all forms of art, symbols and music communicating knowledge in the deepest of ways. It is as if they have reached down into the bottom of the ocean and pooled their knowledge from below. The Neptunian and Pisces house is one of dissolution so the person is afraid on some level of being taken over by these waves of thoughts, and losing their mind to something much larger. It is often a good placement for helping others to communicate, get their point across, or simply to listen. The person understands about being overwhelmed by an emotional force so large that it engulfs the ability to speak what they are feeling and these people can aid others across the choppy waters towards a clearer understanding. The person works beautifully when involved with dream-work, psychology and understanding the unconscious. Sometimes they suffer from too much information drifting into the mind and must learn to shut out the thoughts of others, to know what it is that they think. They need to guard against intruding thoughts from others in order to clear their own mind.

Mercury in House 12

The person with Mercury in House 12 may feel that others misrepresent what they are saying, and confuse matters. The individual may be prone to mental anxiety and worrying too much, and trying to unconsciously control the chaos by being super organised. However, sooner or later everything may feel as if it has all fallen apart again. Sometimes Mercury in the 12th house shows up physically in the individual and they could have a learning disability, hearing problem, or speech problem preventing them from being truly understood. This may leave them feeling disconnected from reality, people and places, and feeling so out of the loop they may feel highly vulnerable about their mental capacity. The person may also feel their thoughts are too dis-organised, overwhelming and there is too much information making it difficult to gain clarity. They are so attuned to the inner experience, and hiding their thoughts that it may be hard for others to understand. Maybe there is a large tendency towards fantasizing, imagining, and drifting off a lot of the time. They just need to sift through a lot of the past and understand it to be as present as they can be. Mercury in House 12 reflects a great talent in writing, speaking in regards to the intellect. However, there is always a struggle and the person may have to first untangle the feelings of why they feel so inferior mentally, and how their upbringing may have some part to play in the condition of their thinking. Perhaps they were bullied for speaking or for not talking, told to be quiet all the time. Perhaps every time they expressed themselves verbally they were quickly made to feel their ideas had no value. They may have learned not to talk about personal matters and feared saying anything at all. Much of this anxiety can be channelled through communicating their deeper insights in some way, and realizing that these perceived weaknesses may actually be hiding their greatest strengths. You are not very quick to speak or communicate, especially in childhood, as you need to develop trust in your own abilities to express yourself. You make an excellent confidante - you are very discreet and secrets go into the vault. You might make matters too complex by overanalysing motives or hunches, and then have problems acting on your intuition as a result. You are very attracted to symbols, sentiment, imagery, and paradoxes. You prefer not to focus on facts and learn best when ideas are presented visually, emotionally, or imaginatively. Learning to communicate clearly is a challenge for you, but one that might put an end to feelings of guilt, of being misunderstood, and to attracting unpleasant situations or duplicitous people into your experience.

Mercury in House 12 have thoughts they cannot easily express

The Mercury in House 12 natives are very emotional and intuitive, so much that they have to gather the courage to actually speak up for themselves. Normal situations that others would just go through without a problem causes them headaches and anxiety attacks. This is because they think too much or rather end up overthinking the simplest things, exaggerating and turning every inconvenience into a tragedy. Visionary but rational. This is a really weird combination because we all know that Mercury natives are usually very talkative and open, keen to act on a whim and to reveal pure joy at the first sign of something fun going on. Well, these Mercury in House 12 natives are different in that they quite opposite in this regard. They are very sensitive and don’t trust themselves at all, reasons for which they prefer to keep silent and just listen. If you ask something, they might answer, although very succinctly, and then retreat back. They don’t know how to interact and how to best express their thoughts. The constant failures only end up strengthening their fears. These people have a really peculiar talent, a nifty predisposition for talking with the spirits of the dead. This connection to the other side weird people out, but it’s something they take great pride in. The visions and intuitive appreciations that they have are quite helpful, from time to time. Logic and rationality have nothing on them, at the very least. This aspect houses a lot of emotional pressure and the liability to end up in difficulties because of depression, overthinking, superstitious beliefs and irrational worrying. There are also flaws as well, as we can see. They might have had a few problems in opening up ever since they were children, probably because they weren’t entirely sure of the exact approach or they didn’t trust themselves enough. With a little master on their emotions, things could be exponentially better even now. A pity for all that potential. However, these people know how to listen and keep secrets, so they are one of the most reliable individuals in this regard. They prefer visual stimuli, symbols, images, tangible ways of understanding, rather than abstract or logical theories. They’re still learning how to best put their words to good use, how to express their thoughts as efficiently as possible. There are some massive advantages and pros from being so sensitive and intuitive though. This insight and synchronization to outward stimuli and emotional potential grant them perfect clarity and awareness, which leads to them making good decisions based on reliable information. They have the necessary material for a good social life, a lot of knowledge to be efficient and socially adept. This is why they have a lot of friends with different interests and personalities because they want to mimic a diverse range of ideas and attitudes. Confidence and self-esteem are built with time and experience, so this approach is good. Other ways in which they could use their spiritual affinity and insightful nature is by helping people, by healing and reconstructing their lost selves. The lost and the abandoned find a place of respite and refuge next to them because they offer the prospect of miraculous well-being, of great rewards. Even if their patients, so to speak, are sceptic and incredulous, it still doesn’t change the fact that Mercury in House 12 natives are in touch with the mystical forces. Their questions are answered from the other side. Doubt this at your own peril! They are careful not to let others in on their secrets though because that would destabilize themselves greatly. Secrets are better kept hidden from the prying eyes of those who would seek to harm them. They might also be afraid that people will mock or make fun of these things, of their spiritual awareness.

Mercury in this house is responsible for a good communication, for a solid understanding of how to best transmit ideas and reach out to people. Essentially though, these natives are exceptionally good at seeing through people. They can become psychologists, mind-readers, soothsayers, fortune-tellers or professional decryption masters, seeing their talent with words and language. They are very good at identifying, recognizing and rearranging patterns, certain characteristic elements that repeat themselves in speech, the meaningful signifiers. Actually, by studying psychology, they would reach a deeper understanding of their own minds and inner contradictions, the workings of their deep cognitive processes. This will help them avoid any further bad things happening, a subjective mimicry of their inner states that would confuse their adversaries. One of the problems that they deal with constantly is the tendency to become immune to any outside stimuli and close themselves up. Daydreaming, thinking about the future, idealistically so, evidently, occupies all their time. Just think about it. You want them to do the chores around the house or they have a meeting in one hour, and they’re sitting in the armchair, staring into the void, being in their own worlds. It’s annoying and irresponsible. They need to take control of their own lives, to be more receptive and aware of their surroundings. Listen, watch out for how others interact, observe the patterns, and simulate. They will try to hide from other people, to nest away in a world of their own. No one has access there, so they’re safe with all their secrets and emotional vulnerabilities. This is why they’re often known as being unpredictable and unorthodox because you just don’t know what to expect. They do their thing without expecting others to agree, but the problem is the lack of logic or reason behind their actions. It’s just not there. Just pure emotions, intuition, sensitive deductions, and subjective appreciations. Needless to say, these can lead to wrong ideas and mistakes. Mars and Uranus can make these natives prone to spilling the beans, to sharing their secrets or those of others with suspicious characters.

With Mercury in House 12, you are in search of the unknown. You display keen curiosity about strange topics, the paranormal, as well as unusual people and worlds. Your intuition and your analytical mind form one whole piece, and they perfectly blend into each other. You try to understand what is unexplainable, and to feel what is impalpable, which boils down to squaring the circle! In such conditions, it is most likely that your mode of communication has its own specific rules. Your comportment is pretty bizarre. Mercury in house 12 often indicates friends and siblings turning into secret enemies. Your team-mates can cause you harm behind your back. Then there is an unconscious dislike of seniors, elders, peers, teachers etc. The thinking process is inverted, turned inwards, the mind works in never ending loops, fantasising. This can create psychological problems. Possibly your mother, when she was pregnant, was never allowed to express herself adequately and you have picked up these vibes from her. In your life too, you may not get a chance to develop your communication skills, the practical ability of interacting with others. Saying what you really want to say can be difficult. You may have a habit of talking to yourself when alone or having imaginary conversations with the people you really want to talk to. But the things you want to say never come to you when you really need them. You may speak in a disjointed non-coherent manner or speak around the topic but never get to the point. Stammering is possible or at least a loss of focus. You are hyper critical of what you think, say and do. Nervous tensions, mental loops of thoughts, restless mind, self-critical, obsessed with details, OCD and often indulge in negative thinking.
