People with Venus in the 12th house, do you feel ashamed for material desires?
I read this interpretation and realized that this applies to me to some extent. I love luxury things, but when someone pays attention to them, I feel embarrassed that I can afford these things, and others can not. I would like to stop comparing myself with others and learn to be proud of my achievements, so if you have overcome this feeling, please tell me how you did it.

My mother has this placement.
She actually feel " ashamed" for spend her money on herself.
She is always investing in others even doing sacrifices and charity constantly.
I don´t like it cause she really seem disconnected from their own worth and pleasure of things. She prefer to buy best things for others than her.

I have Pluto in my 2nd house and Chiron in my 10th house conjunct my midheaven and opposing a 4th house Saturn in Capricorn, so while I love nice things, I am very poor and don’t have many of them. I do tend to feel judged for the few nice things I have or if I get my nails done once in a great while or something, like people are going to say that I shouldn’t ever treat myself to anything nice because I’m not well off.

I have Venus in Sagittarius in the 12th and I also feel this way. I´m trying to be proud of my accomplishments, but really I just got lucky. My husband is extremely smart and successful. So, we no longer worry about money and I don´t have to work anymore. There are so many people struggling to pay bills that I don´t want to offend anyone by talking about money and spending. I mostly try to not talk about money but it sometimes slips out and I feel awkward afterwards. My 8th house of other people´s money is Leo, ruled by the Sun in my 2nd house of income and possessions, and my 8th house has Jupiter. So, I´ve always figured that´s where my luck resides. You can´t control what others think. But I do try to be respectful and mindful about my words and what I talk about.

My Venus is in the 7th house and I also find myself feeling uncomfortable in similar manner.

I like the finer things in so much as I can afford them ánd feel a need for them, less is more.

It´s usually when interacting with people that I realise how those posessions are valued externally.

And then I get annoyed with the level of attachment people have to material things. The superficiality of it, and missing the undertones of life beneath.

I find the answers people have given to be very interesting. I can see that possibility, though - shame for material desires. I bet there are other responses of Venus in the 12th too - depending upon the sign it´s in and the rest of the chart. Would be great to hear other experiences.

Do you also think the 12th house gives you creativity? The 12th house can be a creative house, and Venus is an artist. Also, the 12th his the house of a Mystic - and I´d think people with Venus there could also feel drawn to spiritual practice.

I have Venus in 12th. conjunct Jupiter and Saturn. This feeling extends not only in the items I buy or the home I live in, its also my career, earnings. . .

Here´s an old quote I saved in my personal notes, might help you too. idk.

“New York is 3 hours ahead of California, but that doesn’t make California slow. Someone graduated at the age of 22, but waited 5 years before securing a good job. Someone became a CEO at 25, and died at 50. While another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years. Someone is still single, while someone else got married. Obama retired at 55 and Trump started at 70.

Everyone in this world works based on their own time zone. People around you might seem to be ahead of you and some might seem to be behind you. But everyone is running their own race, in their own time. Do not envy them and do not mock them. They are in their time zone and you are in yours.

So, relax and do you!”

I´d recommend you reading "The science of getting rich, The science of being well and The Science of being Great, a trilogy written by W. Wattles in 1910. These teachings have truly helped me overcome those barriers. The book is an easy read and you could probably find it under 10$.

It´s easy to say "stop comparing yourself to others, but the more you do it, the easier it will be. :68:

I don´t have this placement but a (female) family member does. She does behave in that way, but she comes from a culture which values modesty so I assumed that was the cause. She downplays her wealth/items but is very seeking/concerned with wealth at the same time. She is a Capricorn with Jupiter in Taurus.

Sorry to say, she is still the same way and I have known her for a long time. But, she has Venus square Pluto and Uranus.

Perhaps you can use your air sign qualities (Gemini and Aquarius) to intellectualize your feelings. Talk logic to yourself, when you start to feel embarassed. Tell yourself: you are only making conversation and connection with someone, not showing off. Ignore Saturn in Taurus making you feel anxious about wealth and comforts. I also have Venus in Aries--we like to get nice things and we socialize in a child-like, straightforward way. There´s nothing wrong with it! :17: You have Venus semisquare Jupiter; I have Venus square Jupiter and we can appear spoiled.
