“Malefic Saturn rejoices in the baleful 12th House, which supports its theme of limitation.” — William Lilly
“The Dark Arts are many, varied, ever-changing, and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible. Your defences must therefore be as flexible and inventive as the Arts you seek to undo.” — Severus Snape, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
In my natal chart, I have “malefic Saturn…in the baleful 12th House.” The 12th House is spooky, secret stuff–large institutions, slavery, oppression, restriction, hidden sins and secret enemies, the collective unconscious, and what we do tosabotage ourselves. The 12th House is detachment and aloneness, and it is also divine blessings. I think you can’t have the latter without first learning to come to terms with the former.
