Money Matters and 12th House

This post may please be read alongside two other posts on the same topic: Expenses and Spending Money – 12th and 2nd house and Money Matters.

In a horoscope, 12th house is said to signify the following with respect to money:

  • Losses
  • Expenditure

Essentially, we are talking about going away of money, either benefiting the individual (the pleasure of spending) or causing grief (losses). If there are benefic influences, the effect is former, where the individual spends the money on good deeds. If there are malefic or cruel influences, the effect is that either the money is spent in a questionable way or the wealth is frittered away.

The placement of the 12th lord is important. The following houses cannot be considered good for placement of 12th lord:

  1. 2nd house and 11th house: lack of money of out of control expenditures
  2. 4th and 7th house: no property

In general placement of 12th house lord is considered bad in trines or quadrants. However, according to How to Judge a Horoscope, Volume 2, 9th house is considered excellent placement for 12th house lord provided there is other benefic influence on the house/planet.

Good placement of 12th lord and good placement of planets in 12th lord, make a person generous. Benefics in 12th make a person thrifty.

A placement of afflicted planets will fritter away the wealth. Dr. Raman provides a set of guidelines as to how the money would be spent:

S.No. Planet Type of expenditure/loss
1. Sun money taken away by government of the day
2. Mars Enemies/Wars, ransom, cheating, fire
3. Mercury Loss due to speculation in share market
4. Venus Scandals, blackmails, etc.
5. Moon Medical bills

Doesn’t 12th from Arudha Lagna indicate monetary loss, as Arudha indicates materialism?

I have the following configuration:

Capricorn lagna at 18 degrees

moon in Taurus at 0.3 degrees
mars in cancer at 17 degrees, rahu in cancer at 6.5 deg
sun in virgo at 1.5 degrees
Jupiter in virgo (12th lord) at 21.5 degrees
Saturn in virgo at 17 degrees
mercury in virgo at 27 degrees (virgottam in virgo in D9 also)
venus in libra in 10th at 13 degrees

currently running rahu MD till age 39 then will run Jupiter from 39 to 55

how will Jupiter dasha be? it is lord of 12th in 9th in conjunction with 9th lord mercury and 1st and 2nd lord Saturn also in 9th?

Jupiter will give good result as Jupiter has its lordship over 12th house & Saggitarius both.

Jupiter will aspect 4th house of Home,lands & Vehicles so Jupiter will give favorable results. You also need to check 10th & 2nd house & their lords for money matters.

What about jupiter? The table doesnt have it. If jupiter is placed in Saggitarius in 12th house, then?
