You want to achieve something in your life that is worthwhile - how many of you are nodding approvingly? However, there is no way to do so without paying the price, without losing something or suffering privation in terms of finances, emotions, time or soemthing else.

Today's article is about what people have to part with in order to develop as persons in life. It does not take just reading books, attending courses and seminars, it does not happen without doing something yourself and personally paying the price. The process of development suggests that a person parts from the past, loses it. It is like moving to another country - a person has to abandon his or her house, home, friends, lose them because of the new things that he or she will obtain. Of course, there are losses and losses. Everyone suffers a loss, be it of loved ones, property, work, money. However, not every loss is able to move you in the way that gives the impetus to personal growth. As if something flashes in your mind and you become a different person afterwards.

In the personal horoscope the twelfth house is the most difficult because it is hidden, obscure, unclear. It defines all those circumstances that are associated with a kind of destruction, losses, separation, isolation. This house shows the things one has to part with, the price paid, what one has to sacrifice to develop and rejuvenate as an individual. The twelfth house has other meanings as well, including compassion, charity, ways to escape from reality, emigration, spiritual experiences. If you pay attention, they all have a common root, which is liberation, breaking away from something. The fact that an area with this meaning is followed by the first house that symbolises the "I as a person, body, individual" indicates only one thing: the development of personality and individuality passes through various stages, the liberation and breaking away from something being obligatory, in short, by paying a price, by losing the former "I". This process is always difficult and cumbersome for everyone.

In the article below, I will give you information on the losses that accompany your personal development and the price you pay for them. I will also write how to make these losses bearable and easier to overcome. Avoiding them is impossible but they may be less burdensome at least. The price has to be paid anyway. Refer to the sign of the ascendant and the Sun sign, bearing in mind that the information that depends on the ascendant is primarily associated with material circumstances and situations whereas the information that comes from the Sun sign refers primarily to the immaterial and spiritual meaning of life.

Ascendant or Sun in Aries
The twelfth house falls in Pisces and is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. The price you pay for personal development is connected with the dreams of a perfect and faultless life, a life full of beauty, ease, calm, tranquillity, with no suffering and pain, troubles, heavy thoughts and problems. The moments when you lose this ideal and these dreams touch you most deeply as well as when you are surrounded by anxious situations, feel blue, have some personal problems and when you find yourself in conditions in which you are all alone against everyone and everything. However, these conditions are the most powerful incentive to your personal development, they transform you as an individual. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to mingle with unhappy, suffering, sick people from time to time and do something about them to make them feel relief.
Ascendant or Sun in Taurus
The twelfth house falls in Aries and is ruled by Mars. The price you pay for personal development is connected with the desire to always be at the top, a compelling rival and competitor. The situations in which you are unnoticed, "beaten" or no one wants to compete with you, not considering you a worthy opponent or ignoring you touch you most profoundly and powerfully. Losing a battle, competition, contest, being forced to yield your precedence is the loss that affects you the most. However, that is the price you pay to develop as a person and individual. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to yield to a rival and competitor, give away what is due to you as a leader, to not take part in "battles", even if you are sure you will win them.
Ascendant or Sun in Gemini
The twelfth house falls in Taurus and is ruled by Venus. The price you pay for personal development is associated with your material security, financial stability and wealth, which you accumulate in your life. You are highly vulnerable to experiencing financial losses, including money, property, belongings, more expensive and luxurious personal items. And when you have them, albeit small, they touch you very deeply and strongly. However, this is the most powerful incentive for your personal growth and transformation. Each material loss, even the smallest one, is a huge step. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better just to "lose" material things - to donate money, possessions, participate with personal funds in charities and foundations.
Ascendant or Sun in Cancer
The twelfth house falls in Gemini and is ruled by Mercury. The price you pay for personal development is related to communication, the ability to commit yourself as well as to free movement, the feeling of independence and freedom. Finding yourself in situations in which you are the subject of gossip, intrigues, scandals, under isolation in terms of communication, being unable to communicate with anyone, all these things touch you very deeply and strongly but also stimulate your powerful personal development and transformation. The loss of a brother/sister and closest friends is most dramatic for you. You suffer if you lose your belongings that are associated with your communication, education, movement. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to give away communication equipment and devices, and to voluntarily break up exhausted friendships.
Ascendant or Sun in Leo
The twelfth house falls in Cancer and is ruled by the Moon. The price you pay for personal development is associated with your belonging to your family - parents, grandparents. It is also associated with your home and place of residence, property, the roof over your head. The situations in which one of your parents is threatened touch you most deeply as well as when you need to change your home, part with some immovable property. However, those moments are the most powerful stimulus to personal growth and transformation. The loss of a parent is the most dramatic and shocking and so is the change of residence. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to make small changes in the home environment from time to time or to forfeit in the case of a dispute on inheritance.
Ascendant or Sun in Virgo
The twelfth house falls in Leo and is ruled by the Sun. The price you pay for personal development is related to yourself, your ego as well as to love, personal creativity, children, adoration and admiration of others. The situations in which you are highly ignored, you do not receive love, do not obtain enough praise and compliments and you are treated as a mediocre person, thus hurting your ego touch you most deeply. However, these moments give you a very powerful stimulus to personal growth and transformation. Losing a loved one, someone’s love affects you the most. Losing a child, being separated from your children or not obtaining enough attention on the part of your children is the most dramatic thing for you. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better sometimes to mingle with the crowd, go where there is no food for your ego and no way for you to obtain compliments and adoration.
Ascendant or Sun in Libra
The twelfth house falls in Virgo and is ruled by Mercury. The price you pay for personal development is related to your work as a lifestyle/daily round, health habits, physical activity, illnesses. The situations that present you with the need to "repair" something in your life, especially your health and body, the ability to work, to perform the most ordinary and routine daily tasks touch you most deeply and strongly. However, precisely in those moments you get a powerful stimulus to personal growth and transformation. Falling ill, having defects in your body and health is the most dramatic thing for you, a heavy loss, even if it comes to something insignificant and which can be remedied. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to visit and take care of ill/unemployable people from time to time, to voluntarily follow a strict healthy regime on a daily basis even if you do not need one.
Ascendant or Sun in Scorpio
The twelfth house falls in Libra and is ruled by Venus. The price you pay for personal development is associated with communication, relationships with people in general, but especially with partnerships, contracts and agreements that you create with others, with the necessary compromises when communicating with others. The situations that seriously shake your partnerships, threaten their survival, lead to a lack of harmony and involve you in lawsuits and conflicts touch you in a very strong and deep way. This affects not only marital but also business partnerships. Losing a partner or splitting with one is a heavy loss for you but it is the most powerful stimulus to personal growth and development. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to compromise sometimes even if it means suppressing your rights, giving up something that is due to you and which you are entitled to receive in the relevant partnership.
Ascendant or Sun in Sagittarius
The twelfth house falls in Scorpio and is ruled by Mars and Pluto. The price you pay for personal development is associated with a karmic fate, you go through such a serious transformation that you may feel that you are losing everything in life, that you are at the bottom and even below it. You are probably the only people who go through very deep crises that occur in a manner completely independent of you. Often they are associated with power, money (someone else’s), sexual experiences, risky life twists. The related situations touch you very deeply and strongly but at the same time they take you into "dangerous waters" and it is uncertain whether you will manage to save yourself. Nevertheless, the moments when things are of the "life and death" type, "all or nothing", when there are dangerous and risky developments, give you the most powerful impetus to personal development and transformation. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, sometimes it would be better to voluntarily refuse to use what belongs to someone else, especially money and property, in order to be satisfied with a simple lifestyle.
Ascendant or Sun in Capricorn
The twelfth house falls in Sagittarius and is ruled by Jupiter. The price you pay for personal development is associated with trips abroad, relationships with foreigners and distant countries, beliefs, religions and education, with living without limits, both literally and symbolically. The situations that do not allow you to travel, explore the world, learn things, educate yourself, forcing you to observe some customs and traditions (mainly moral and religious) touch you most deeply and become the most powerful impetus to personal development and transformation. Losing your freedom to move around freely, complying with restraints is the worst loss for you. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, it would be better to voluntarily impose restrictions on yourself, try to fit into the requirements of others, be they moral, religious, etc.
Ascendant or Sun in Aquarius
The twelfth house falls in Taurus and is ruled by Saturn. The price you pay for personal development is connected with your public and social status in terms of respect, prestige, authority, professional achievements and career. The situations in which you endure professional downturns, fail, do not have enough respect or prestige and are unable to climb the hierarchical ladder touch you most deeply. But these moments are a powerful stimulus to personal growth and transformation. Losing positions and prestige or a person who was an important authority figure for you is one of those losses that you suffer the worst. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, sometimes it would be better to give up promotions or to spend time doing voluntary work that is not prestigious or participate in volunteer organizations.
Ascendant or Sun in Pisces
The twelfth house falls in Aquarius and is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. The price you pay for personal development is connected with the ability to live beyond the rules of society, to violate them, be rebellious, materialize some eccentric desires, be different, independent, not having to comply with rules imposed on you. The situations that contain too many rules and limitations, face you with the "either-or" type options, subject you to strong criticism and isolation, to losing friends and your social circle with which you communicate the most touch you most deeply. But these moments are the most powerful stimulus to your personal growth and transformation. Losing friends, people who support you, benefactors and patrons affects you the most. To reduce the burden of the losses suffered, sometimes it would be better to isolate yourself, spend more time in contemplation and solitude, voluntarily give up being protected.
