12th House Aries: What does it mean if Aries is in your 12th House?

12th House Aries

If a person’s horoscope indicates that their twelfth house is located in the sign of Aries, it is nearly always a warning indication that they will struggle to maintain appropriate boundaries in their personal relationships.

Be careful of others who will enter your environment and want to siphon off your vitality for their benefit and not yours. In due time, you will need to “remember” what it was like to pursue your inner passion, fight for your rights, stand up for yourself if the situation calls for it, and be truthful about all that is on your mind.

This will be a necessary step in order to go forward.

Interpreting Aries in 12th House

If a sign falls in a house on your birth chart, it means that the sign will influence how you relate to that area of your life.

(For example, the 10th house governs your career. So, if a mutable sign lands in the 10th house, then you’re likely to be indecisive about your career prospects).

Here’s what it means if Aries falls in your 12th House.

12th House Meaning

The 12th house is the house of personal unconsciousness. It governs:

  • The subconscious – How you deal with your life on a subconscious level.
  • Your dreams – What you dream about.
  • Your fears – The things that you fear, but push deep down and don’t personally confront.
  • Your fantasies – The things you catch yourself daydreaming about.
  • Your hidden desires – the desires you hold deep down and, potentially, don’t even admit to yourself.

Aries Traits

Aries is a bold, courageous, and resourceful sign. It can give you the adventurousness that you desire and the motivation to seek out new frontiers in your life.

The boldness of Aries comes from the fact that it is governed by the fire element. This element gives people leadership skills and the ability to take initiative.

As a cardinal sign, Aries also gives people extrovert qualities. They may be outgoing and social, always willing to chat about their ideas and inspirations.

However, an Aries may also lack persistence. They will dive into a new venture but often don’t have the internal fortitude to see things through when they get tough.

What Does Aries in the 12th House Mean for You?

Here is what you should be aware of. 

1. You will Courageously Confront your Fears

The 12th House holds your deepest fears. Because you were born with Aries on the cusp of your 12th House, you may find that you will have the courage of Aries when confronting your fears.

This may mean that you’re the sort of person who will go bungee jumping to overcome your fear of heights or, on a more mundane level, you will approach your bully in the playground rather than hiding from her.

Similarly, you’re likely the sort of person who will consult an astrologer, tarot card reader, or even a therapist to help you get through your fears rather than simply trying to push them under a rug.

In fact, because Aries is a cardinal sign, you’re more open to talking about your deepest fears and desires than many other people.

2. You May not See your Best Intentions Fulfilled

While you had the best intentions to confront your fears and see your desires fulfilled, you run the risk of running out of steam.

For example, I had a client with Aries in the 12th house of her natal chart. She had a deep down insecurity about her body image, so she would regularly sign up for the gym. However, every time she got a gym membership, she would go for a week then forget about it.

This is a weakness of Aries. It lacks the persistence to see things through.

3. You Have Vivid Fantasies

The 12th House harbors your fantasies. Aries is a bold and visionary sign, so when it interacts with the 12th house, we tend to see people who have very clear fantasies that they have a deep-down desire to fulfill.

A person with Aries in the 12th house may fantasize about something that seems so out of reach for them – like becoming famous or moving abroad. These suppressed fantasies that are hidden in the 12th house are likely to raise their heads in your dreams or even in the middle of the day.

This is because the bold and visionary Aries sign that governs your fantasies won’t let you forget about them.

4. Embrace Spirituality

You may discover your mission in this life as well as your purpose in this life by turning to spirituality. It is crucial to your development to cultivate things that you can do alone.

You may begin with an activity that requires greater physical exertion, such as jogging or cycling, and then progress to yoga and eventually meditation. These steps can help you get perspective on a great many facets of your life.

As you go through your spiritual journey, it is imperative that you advocate for yourself. Develop self-assurance in who you are and accept yourself for your bravery.

5. Build up your Resilience

If you have the sign of Aries in your twelfth house, you can find it difficult to spend time alone with yourself and make a connection with the greater cosmos.

This is because your subconscious is governed by Aries, a cardinal sign that desires social contact.

It’s a good idea to meditate to achieve inner quiet and enjoy more time with yourself.

One of the challenges of practicing meditation for people with Aries in the 12th house is overcoming feelings of anxiousness.

When you realize that what you’re experiencing is normal, everything gets much simpler.

Keep in mind that the obstacles are the important parts. The universe will reveal to you, via the occurrence of tension in your life, what it is that you need to conquer in order to progress. 


Having Aries in the 12th house on your natal chart will mean that Aries will govern how you relate to your dreams, hidden desires, fantasies, and fears. Being a bold and courageous sign, Aries tends to push you to address these deep-down and suppressed feelings.

Aries is also extremely sociable, so you may find yourself attempting to talk through your deep desires with an astrologer or tarot card reader. But be cautioned that Aries also doesn’t have much persistence, so it’s possible you’ll have trouble seeing through your ambitions if you were to ever try to tackle those fears and fantasies and bring them to life.
