However,it is more likcly to penain to hidden weaknesses forces in ourselveswhich or undermine the realizationof our conscious goalsand objectirres. In brid, unconscious drivcsand compu.lsions sho*n by the izth ho,se as placementscan thwart the achievement our conscious of aims. br instance,if a man hasthe Moon and Venusin the 7th house,there is -a strong urge to be close to another person in an intimate relationship.Burif this man alsohasUranusin the 12th,it suggesa that unconsciously there may be such a suong desire for frellom and independencethat he will somehowsaboage any amempt ro form binding ties. Generdly, in any contest bctwein conscious-aims and unconscious aims, it is usudly the unconscious which wins. In this casc,-he may habirudly be attractedonly to thosewomen who are not free to marry or who, for rcme reason, do not wish to reciprocatehis adrances.In this way,the unconscious compulsion to remain independent (uranus in rhc 12th) is vicroriouso'er thc more conscious needs.If we are conscious urgesin ourselves, of we can do something to regulate and dter thesc if we so wish.

Conrrcrsely, what we felt served our own individud well-being would inrnariably serrr the good of the whole. An old story illustrates the positirc side to the 12th housc. A man is allocrcdto visit Hearcn and Hell. In Hell, he sees largegathering a of peoplc sitting around a long table set with rich and delectable food. And yet these peoplc are miserableand starving. He soon discoversthat the reiuon for their dreadful state is that the spoons and forksprovided for them arelongerthan their arms.As a result, they areunable to bring the food to their mouths and fted themsclrres. Then the man is shown Heaven. He finds the sametable set out there, with the same extra-long eating utensils. But, in Hearrcn, insteadof just trying to feed their own selrrcs, eachpersonuseshis or her spoonand fork to feedonc another.They aredl well-fedand h"PPy.
