Taurus stellium in the 12th :(

I had a professional astrologer look at my chart over the internet and I was rather disappointed by a lot of what he said. I think many of the things were skewed by his negative inpressions of the 12th house. First, he believed I was mentally handicapped in some fashion because of my Taurus Mercury in the 12th and my Leo north node in the 3rd house, which is supposed to signify things I need to develop in this lifetime. Also, I guess it doesn't help that most of my personal planets are in the 12th, and even worse, being in Taurus. Not only am I supposed to be slow on the uptake but I am supposed to be completely hedonistic without any self-control whatsoever. So when I heard these stuff I was completely crushed. True, I do have some issues with food, but I'm certainly not obese, and I do consider myself somewhat intelligent, though self-admittedly not a genius. But, now that I'm inching closer to my thirties, I wonder if I can ever overcome my "fate". I definitely feel the full force of the 12th. I've suffered from crippling shyness for almost all of my life. And with my gemini moon in conjunction with my Ascendant and in opposition with Neptune, I am acutely attuned to the injustices and sadness around me :(

  • Did you pay for the reading? Ask for your money back, that is a bunch of crap. I have TAU Merc and Sun in 12th and I teach classes and have an IQ over 140 and had a column in an internationally published metaphysics magazine. I don't know why you would think TAU 12th is bad. I think Shantideva had his sun there as well (double check me on that one).
    • Luckily I didn't have to pay for the reading. I tried to look for your chart in your profile but couldn't find it. You must have some positive Merc aspects to not be hindered somewhat. In my case, it's not so much a problem with grasping info, but more of my self-consciousness involved in expressing my ideas/views in front of others. Actually, I think some of the greatest 20th century intellectuals had either merc or sun in the 12th, so perhaps it's not a bad setting after all...
      • Leo N.Node in your 3rd house definitely begs you to overcome your shyness. One way to envision doing that would be to calculate your chart using the Koch house system (as many reputable astrologers do) which will place all of your Taurus stuff in the 11th house rather than the 12th. Consider both, and decide which feels most comfortable to you.
        Overcoming your "fate" can be a cake walk. Simply act as you wish and you'll be doing it.
  • Jennifer,

    I know a lady your age quite well. She has Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Chiron in the "dreaded" 12th house. Her Venus is in Taurus. She is well adjusted and very popular. One of the upsides to 12th house placements is that they represent extraordinary gifts. Maybe it takes a "Twelfth Houser" to know one. Anyway, the so called bad placements in a chart only potentially describe our original state, it doesn't mean we can't or won't evolve and grow. Our strengths and weaknesses very often grow from the same root. Many, if not most, astrologers dwell on the negative, it's how they were taught and it's what they commonly see in astrological interpretation. Our charts may describe our challenges, but they also describe our strengths as well, you just have to seek the positives in a chart because so little is offered. We all have the power to make positive choices and changes. Taurus characteristics are as good as any. Being the real you is your highest potential state of evolvement in my opinion. My advice would be to study your positive potentials. You'll find there are plenty of them!
