1-12 Couplet

  • 1-12 or 12-1 Couplet: Hidden and murky things, such as the bottom of the ocean or the contents of a stew, are hallmarks of the 12th Triad.  But music, imagination, and all forms of thinking are included.  Even ideals and spirituality fall within the 12th Triad.  Roughly one out of every 12 people will have Pisces on the cusp or within the 1st House creating the 1-12 combination.  But this combination can show up elsewhere – Aries on the 12th House, Mars in Pisces, and Mars in the 12th House.

DHARMA: The 1-12 or 12-1 says a ‘spiritual person’ or even a ‘spiritual leader’.  Since music falls under the 12th Triad, this could say a ‘musical person’ (singer, musician, composer, etc.).  And this individual likely has a vivid imagination, too.  Spirituality, music, and imagination are dharmic traits. 

Perhaps the most dharmic activity associated with the 12th Triad is medicine.  Healing people is clearly dharmic.  Blood transfusions, medicines, pathology, and biology in general all contribute to healing people and is dharmic.

KARMA: The imagination creates fiction, and fiction could be either karmic or dharmic.  The difficulty is that fiction is fantasy or ‘untruths’ (lies).  Sharon Mann further explained the karmic tendencies of the 12th Triad as those of a chameleon – someone who portrays what you want to see, but the façade is a lie.  Other negative results can be criminal activities or self destructive behaviors (drug and alcohol abuse).

Finally, seeing yourself as being victimized (‘poor me’) diminishes self-worth and self-empowerment.  Dwelling on such thoughts are destructive and lead to beliefs and feelings of helplessness.

PHRASES: People recognized by others as a spiritual leader fit the 1-12/12-1 combination – ministers, rabbis, religious scholars, etc.  Since the 12th Triad rules drugs and alcohol, physicians fit the 1-12/12-1 couplets.  Any activity including liquids falls within the 12th Triad – breweries, wineries, dairies, soft drinks, bottled water, sprinkler systems, fishing, boating, and swimming.  Chemistry, biology, sanitation systems, fall within the 12th Triad.  A marine biologist would definitely be part of the 1-12 couplet.  Anyone working with liquid represents the 1-12 couplet, and more liquids would include gasoline, crude oil, plastics, effluents, inks (pens, markers, and tattoos), perfumes, dyes.  The list is enormous.  But being seen as someone working with liquids is the criteria for the 1-12 or 12-1 couplets.

As with all couplets, the above descriptions are not exhaustive, and they will be augmented as new data is brought forth.
