Having three personal planets and a node in the twelfth house, my journey into researching the twelfth house led me to some very heavy descriptions and dark corners. But it’s funny, the stories people told about their twelfth house experiences and the wisdom they gained, wasn’t reflected in that literature. Enlightenment and The Cosmic Blues was the first time I truly felt the 12th house get the respect and honesty it needed. Steven Forrest is funny, deep and eloquent. I’ve invested in other courses of his, as well as his book The Inner Sky. I highly recommend his teachings if you are looking to understand astrology beyond a descriptive tool and really begin to tune into its energy, its essence. He’s got quite the gift to share.
This material really helped me grasp the 12th house in terms that are down to earth. As someone with a Sun/Pluto conjunction in my 12th house, studying this topic has often made me feel furious or helpless. As usual, Steven gives a different spin that points to the higher ground of this energy.
12th House: Enlightenment and the Cosmic Blues
Enjoyed the lecture. In the lecture, Steven referred to a handout on 12th house planets. Does one come with the lecture? It would be helpful to have supplemental materials on planets in the 12th house, as he only discusses 2 in the lecture.
Hi Carol. This talk does come with a handout. It's included in the zip file and we've just emailed it to you. Glad you enjoyed the lecture.
12th House: Enlightenment and the Cosmic
I enjoyed this class immensely. I have three planets in the 12th house and it has always intrigued me but I’ve never had it truly explained to me. However, I would have liked if Mr. Forrest would have explored more planets in the house like he did with Jupiter in Scorpio. He only spoke in depth about Saturn and Mars and a bit about Chiron. I would love to know more about Venus (which is in my chart) and Jupiter (my husbands) and Mercury etc. and see how they occupy the 12th house. Can he do a Part 2 of the 12th house?
Need more information on the planets in the 12th
The part I heard was great but the most important part of the lecture for me was an explaining of the planets in the 12th. That is where my download ended. I complained several times that the download or maybe the lecture ended with Steven just starting the planets. It was very disappointing.
