The 12th house is another Du-Sthana (Inauspicious House), the most suitable Grah/Planets would be Inauspicious, debilitated, weak Malefics here or a strong Benefic like Jupiter and Venus would give beneficial results, the 12th house relates to Losses, expenditure, punishment, imprisonment, hospitalization, pleasures in bed, misfortune, bad habits, sleep, meditation, donation, secret enemies, heaven, left eye, feet, residence away from the place of birth, moksha (emancipation/liberation), not all are bad, but if the house or the Grah in this bhava are afflicted then the native would be deprived of Pleasures in bed, sleep, meditation, but it would help the native to achieve the ultimate the Heavens and the most desired the final Emancipation/liberation from this cycle of births and deaths, which is only possible when the native overcomes the desires, the native might feel the need to renounce the material world and live a very Sattvik and Spiritual life, then if the house is well protected or blessed by an benefic, then the native might not experience the general effects of the 12th bhava, like expenditure more then income, losses in business, over indulgence in sensual events, etc. etc. above all the most beautiful thing one should look in this bhava is the Eligibility or Entitlement for Emancipation/liberation (Moksha).
The natural 12th bhava is Pisces and the lord of this bhava is Jupiter.
86-81. If malefics occupy various Bhavas (other than 6th, 8th and 12th), they bring harm to the Bhavas, while benefics increase their potence. Malefics are auspicious in evil Houses, i.e. 6th, 8th, while benefics prove adverse in these Bhavas. According the strength of Yogakaraka planets, their beneficial relationship, friendly/inimical aspects etc. and position in exaltation/debilitation, the (good, or bad) results of Bhavas can vary (i.e. be maximum, medium, or nil).
The recent example is about an Russian Girl, Natasha, it seems she claims to have X-ray eyes, and was failed by some scientist in US, and the whole program was telecasted in one of the TV channel (I am sorry I do not remember the name of the Scientist or the firm), the girl could Diagnose the ailments of many people in the first experiment, the scientist rejected this by saying that the girl was able to pick up signals from the patients from their suggestions in a way that she is able to reach at some conclusion, so he devised a fool proof experiment, at least as per him, she was supposed to tell the ailments or missing parts in about seven patients, the girl is pre-informed of the ailments and all she has to do is match them, to avoid any eye contact, the patients are made to wear tinted glasses, and the girl who might be doing this kind of thing in a very relaxed and in her own environment, is subjected to unusual tension and some procedures, she is able to predict the ailments of four patients out of seven, and the scientist failed her, his passing scale was if she would have predicted 5 out of 7, she would have passed, I ask how did he arrive at this figure, is it some school passing percentage, well I am sure it will have no effect on her ability to heal or Diagonise people with her so called X-ray eyes or what ever, I would say she was able to tell 4 out of 7 correct, the scientist should have validated it with a blank, meaning a very normal person, he might smoke, drink, etc. etc. meaning the senses of the person are sedated or turned numb by these artificial agents, or he/she should have taken the same test and then the scientist should have compared the result with the results given by the girl, why a normal person, the scientist himself should have taken the test as a blank, and then see how many he is able to tell correctly, Ya! I agree the girl missed the metal plate in a persons head, but it does not say that she lacked the ability, I would ask who gave the term X-ray eyes, I would say is it possible anatomically speaking to have X-ray eyes, so was the Scientist trying to fail the Girl or the ability, because she said she has X-ray eyes, or because the ability did not match the term "X-ray eyes", I would say , If I sit and brood and list them all, I would need to write another post, I know the scientist was trying to prove, that if such an ability exists, then she should be like a X-ray machine, because she claims that she has X-ray eyes, but my dear scientist it does not work like that, ask a blind man, how he finds his way home, first and foremost answer he might give you, "Oh! I use the stick", but dear scientist you use the same stick and try to reach home, you will understand what I am talking about, the blind man lacks the very idea that to reach home though he is using a stick to feel the objects but to reach those objects what is he using, the extra sensory abilities of his mind, which allows him to feel the objects and make a map in his mind, which the blind man does with out any inkling of what is happening in his mind or actually he/she never puts any effort to understand this phenomenon, all he knows is I am able to walk with a stick, but look at a blind man walking on a street, yes he is feeling the road and hard surfaces with his stick, but how he is able to walk straight in a line, and look at his head movement, what does it suggest, it suggests he is trying to see not through his eyes, in fact it is through his third eye, which is present between the two eyebrows, it works like an remote device, mapping his movements and this makes him walk straight in a line and the stick helps him to add data to this map.
To understand these Para-Normal activities one need to first accept them then experience them, and let the claimee relax and do the diagnosis as per his/her disposition and not like a lab rat, put in a cage and OK! Common we are counting, Oh! no she failed, and shrug his/her shoulders by saying, it does not sit well " Humbug" etc.
It is like few people, who are staunch "Atheists", meaning they have no belief what so ever in any kind of superior energy or force, or power, whom we call "GOD", exists, I say how can you even perceive it in its most superficial levels, if You do not even accept it, to reach the deepest levels of perception, one need to accept it at least for experimental purposes, then move slowly towards it, yet one can keep his/her beliefs rock solid, but Ney! It does not exist.
I do not reject these claims by conducting few lame experiments, to satisfy my ego that nothing superior then humans exists, what do we know about our own brain and mind, the day we will understand the abilities and capacities of our own brain and mind, then we can or we should claim that we are real chemical, or physical or biological scientists and then one can stand on the roof top and scream at top of his/her voice "Nothing Para-Normal exists in this universe", we humans are the most " powerful" in this universe, Yes people will follow you, but at this stage we do not have an inkling on how the Human Brain and Mind Works, leave alone its abilities and capacities.
Another good example cited by a guy like me ;-), is about the Electric eels which were used in Africa and Arabia for ages to cure headaches, people have to stand or keep the eel on their heads, general scientist would laugh at this behavior but since we all know that electric current is used in treating ailments relating with the head or brain, so it makes sense when someone wraps a electric eel to his/her head to cure headaches.
Similar way first we need to understand the principle and validate it then go out with your validated system and say OK! you fail and you pass etc. etc. but unfortunately we do not understand how the e.g. "electric eel is helping the patient from headaches", so we do not have the right or capacity or ability or knowledge to say "Natasha you failed like a X-ray machine".
I am sorry I deviated from Astrology, it has been there in my mind since I saw this program I think it was TLC TV channel, so now that the opportunity came to express, so I did. Please do not come running after me, I am not claiming anything here. :-))) I am another scientist like you.
I missed Karma bhava on purpose, because it is another important Bhava like the Tanu Bhava with the Ascendant, and I want to deal with it in a very elaborate manner taking enough time this weekend.
One more point, I have referred BPHS, Kalyana Varma's Saravali, G.Das, Barbara Pijan Lama to complete these sections.
Aum NamaH Shivaya!
