Martian / Pisces / Twelfth House

Mars in Pisces/12th house & Submerged Battling

The Wreck

Mars in Pisces or in the 12th house people have the planet relating to personal will (and when there are obstructions to the personal will —> anger) in the sign/house of empathy and surrendering, dissolving. Their relationship to anger can be totally submerged and hidden, or instead of feeling the impulse for anger when their will is thwarted they will feel the impulse for empathy and understanding. This allows them to tolerate intensely disempowering situations that others would put up boundaries for, but 12th house Mars/Mars in Pisces endures – transcends?

Having outlets for high-power yang energy like intense exercise can be a straight up spiritual experience for Mars in the 12th house people. They don’t necessarily need to do battle with the situation at hand – they can sweat it out, talk to Spirit, and find the upsetting situation disappear. Or they can slip soundlessly into the night & ghost.

This is, until, the spiritual path is in confronting the difficult situation – which feels loaded with ancient angst, perhaps multiple past lives of surrendering or transcending in similar situations and now enough is finally enough. In this case, the situation at hand is given a lot more intensity and power in the person’s psyche than it is on paper/objectively. When the problem is met with a solution that is new – or what the spiritual message is calling for – and not just a repetition of how said ancient angst has been met in the past, the storm clouds that were hovering around seem to dissipate, butterflies fly around, the sunlight looks particularly magnificent, the air is spectacularly fresh. A flush of magic.

  1. I’ve got 12th Mars in Taurus. Wow. That first paragraph explains better than anything I’ve read the weird relationship to anger that I experience with this placement. Am I avoiding it by reaching toward empathy or am I transcending the lower impulses? I frequently don’t know.

  2. My little brother had Mars conjunct Jupiter in 12th. He also had Vertex exactly conjunct DC, and exactly opposite Saturn conjunct AC

    He spent his life doing very dangerous things [like driving a tractor across the middle of the Antarctic glaciers, or free-diving in caves with sharks in NZ]. He spent a lot of time close to nature in remote places in the world, which is where he was happiest. He had the type of masculinity, that a lot of men wanted to be him, and a lot of women wanted to have him.

    However i look at his life, and think that the 12th house Mars energy played out perfectly through his relationships. What you describe is very accurate for his relationship dynamic. He had children with an older and much wealthier woman, who used both the children and money to control him. He tolerated some outrageous behaviour for years & hid his anger to stay close to his young children. Even though he was extremely angry, he could still empathise with his partner’s behaviour at the end & not blame her. In the week that he was killed in a car crash, he had finally hit a point of being unable to tolerate the conditions he was living in any more and had made a clear decision to move out in a few days time, even though he knew he probably wouldn’t see his kids for a long time. In his case, that dynamic seems intricately intertwined with his death. [His death was hard to understand – low speed & no other car or obstacle involved & only a few hundred meters from where he started driving. Transiting Pluto was exactly conjunct his Sun]
