A sociable companion

The planet Uranus is of great help when it comes to what the unconscious is used with. It stirs up things and brings all kind of coincidences into people’s life.

Natives having Uranus in the 12th house can have their strange ways when helping others and may want to remain anonymous when being generous.

Many things will happen in their life, and they will get to change some of their habits or objects of affection due to these events.

For example, when some of their secrets will become known to everyone, they will find it necessary to change their ways so that nobody else knows what they’re doing anymore.

In such situations, they may need to give up some of the things in their life, which can be a more or less easy task. But only this would help them detach from their past.

The connections they’re having with society ask of them to sometimes be less coherent. While Uranus in 11th house makes it possible for natives to interact more efficiently with the collective, the same planet in the 12th house relates more to the unconscious of the collective and the way an individual is in synergy with it.

In this last-mentioned situation, the unconscious of individuals having Uranus in 12th house gets its streams of spiritual knowledge from the Universe in a very subtle way.

Uranus in 12th house people happen to have psychic abilities that can help them a lot during their lifetime. Because this house is the one of dreams and imagination, they may get a lot of insight about their life while sleeping.

It’s like their best ideas and even the most ingenious inventions are somehow revealed to them in their dreams. Things will come to them suddenly and they’ll be very inspired in what they may be doing for living because they always have the answers to problems in their head.

It’s also possible for these natives to see in the future, but only if they focus enough. Many of them will mask their knowledge of deeper meanings in the unconscious of the collective.

It’s suggested they pursue a career in psychology and even the occult because they can understand things that others aren’t even capable to see.

Positions of other planets in their chart wouldn’t matter that much because Uranus in the 12th house always has them efficient at dealing with matters that aren’t of this world, so they would more or less have control over their chart.

When it comes to everyday realities, natives having Uranus in the 12th house can struggle with the simplest tasks.

They may suffer from insomnia and sleep when others are at work and the other way around. Having a rich imagination, they’re very capable of lucid dreaming, but some negative aspects with the planets in their chart bring them nightmares.


Uranus in 12th house individuals may work in the shadows and do great things while not even searching for recognition. They don’t seem to have enough confidence to do something too out of the ordinary, so Uranus makes them feel guilty for being too shy to express what’s in their mind or for not just doing what they want in life.

It’s good they’re cautious because this way, they’re also more realistic. If they’d get lost in Uranus and its fantasy world, they would never be able to come back to Earth.

Uranus in 12th house individuals want to make the world a better place and are very interested in expressing themselves freely.

However, the 12th house that rules over self-undoing makes them suppress themselves more than often.

Instead of being open, Uranus would push them to observe others and to ask impossible things. It’s true this planet influences people to be happy with change and to only think of the future, but when placed in the 12th house, all this becomes suppressed.

Individuals having Uranus in 12th house are attracted to people who think the same as them and who are creative enough to be happy about their own freedom.

They could be the geniuses of the society, but they don’t reveal their qualities because they think it’s safer for them this way. Everything that’s strange and mysterious attracts them, so it’s possible they’ll study areas that deal with the paranormal.

Since they enjoy the unconventional, there may be many things in their life they prefer to keep secret. When young, they probably have been careless and very free, but as mature adults, they’re very interested to have a good reputation and to live their life more conventionally.

Very analytical when it comes to what’s hidden, they may also act rebellious and end up in prison or institutionalized. It’s normal for them to think others are their enemies and practicing all kind of witchcraft against them.

If institutionalized, they’ll either be the ones who bring joy or those make things worse. What’s good about having Uranus in the 12th house is that natives with this placement don’t feel in any way confined in the real world.

Many people are afraid of big dreams, but these ones simply don’t allow any restrictions to be in their way and usually make any dream they may have come true. This is why they’re good at everything and have a prolific career.

When in the company of creative individuals, they start to become better and better individuals. It’s important for them to not be afraid of any obstacles in their way as innovation doesn’t happen when the inventors or creators are scared of the unknown.


It’s essential for people having Uranus in the 12th house to no longer feel stressed and to retreat from time to time, in order to gather their forces.

That’s why they should spend some time alone and focus on their feelings and what keeps bringing them down.

It can be very exhausting for them to always be in the shadows and to pull all the strings alone, without anyone to help them.

While they’re struggling to make the world a better place, they’re putting a lot of pressure on themselves to make the utopia in their mind a reality.

In case Uranus is in challenging positions in their chart, they may feel like they can’t deal with others because their karma seems to be related with the collective, not with each and every individual.

They can as well have many problems with the way they feel about the collective. On one hand, they can think they’re belonging, on the other, they can victimize themselves and imagine the collective has “got” them.

This is a contradiction that exists in their mind all the time so it can be difficult to be them. It’s important for Uranus in 12th house natives to seek help from counselors and spiritual guides because otherwise, they can easily end up despairing.

It wouldn’t matter how tense or uncomfortable the planet Uranus in the 12th house is, the natives with this placement will always want to be alone when reading, painting, writing or meditating.

The more they’ll spend time in solitude and doing these things, the more profound they’ll get to feel or their soul to have its peace.

It’s normal for them to think of plans that aren’t realistic, but this doesn’t mean they should give up on their dreams.

Imagining things in a different way would be a solution for them as Uranus would help them with making changes, offering them enough energy to explore new territories.
