First House Lord in Twelfth House
1st house lord sitting in 12th house.
First of all, let's see what 12th house represent -
12th house represents Losses, Expenses, Isolated Places, Spirituality, Foreign Lands, Foreign Companies, Imagination, Sub-Concious Mind, Charity, Donation, Asylums, Jails, Hospitals, Hidden Talent and Secrets of Other World etc.
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.

What is the impact of having 1st house lord in 12th house?
Its generic interpretation is that person's focus through-out life is on matters related with Foreign Lands, MNCs, Spirituality, Isolation, Imagination and other things related with 12th house. As means of conveyance have significantly improved and are also affordable in last 50 years, this position has turned up into very strong planetary position for Foreign Settlement. This person finds his peace and success in Foreign Lands only. in 20th Century, it might be the case of moving from one state to another in same country but in 21st century, this position seriously send someone in Foreign Lands.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 12th house lord as 1st house lord is going in 12th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
How different planets will behave differently as Ascendant Lord in 12th house?
Suppose it is a Leo Ascendant chart and Sun sits in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer. It shows a person who goes to foreign land because of his father or job/career and settles down there. It also shows someone in Government Job in Foreign Lands. As Sun is in friendly sign of Cancer, it shows the benefic results of moving into foreign lands. It shows a very emotional personality. It can easily show a doctor.
So it is Cancer Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 1st house and sits in 12th house in Gemini. This time guy is going to foreign lands either with mother or because of mother and settles down there. Person is highly imaginative and almost a day-dreamer. They get their mental peace only by reaching foreign lands. As it is in the sign of Gemini, their mind is running everywhere and very much business oriented. As they are imaginative and Gemini is sign of Communications, they communicate their imaginations, i,e. they become great authors/poets.
Mars can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant -
So if it is Aries Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 12th house in Pisces sign. Wherever Mars is, that's where your actions are. So, these people go to foreign lands/isolated places to be a part of some spiritual group. Their life path gets transformed for the benefit and they reach foreign lands. They can work in Foreign Companies. As 12th house also represents places like Jails and Mars represents Police Officers, they can be in such career.
Scorpio Ascendant -
Now if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 12th house in Libra sign. This person can be seen as a guy who is fighting in foreign lands in matters of creating balance in society as a Social Reformer. This can be seen as an activist in foreign lands.
Mercury also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant -
If it is Gemini Ascendant, Mercury rules 1st & 4th houses and sits in 12th house in Taurus. This is person who is working in foreign lands/MNCs in the field of Finance. It can be seen as a Stock Broker also. As Gemini is sign of communication, this position can surely make an author in foreign matters.
Virgo Ascendant -
If it is Virgo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 12th house in Leo. As Virgo is sign of details and analysis, this shows an accountant working in foreign lands. It can also be a health counselor in a hospital. This person can be foreign government spokesperson too. Basically, with Mercury going into 12th house, communications will be a strong part of career.
Venus also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant -
If it is a Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 12th house in Aries sign. It clearly shows someone who has relations in foreign lands. These people go to foreign lands and meet their love. As Venus is about serving others and making life convenient for others and represents vitality, it can show someone serving in hospitals.
Libra Ascendant -
If it is Libra Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 12th house in Virgo, where it is debilitated. Here, person really needs to be very careful about relationships because Libra Ascendant shows that he can not live without relation and Venus is debilitated in 12th house of losses. So, a little carelessness in relations can end up in huge losses for them, unless Venus is Vargottama Planet for individual. So, in both positions of Venus, situation is very tricky for love and wealth.
Jupiter also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant -
If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 4th house and sits in 12th house in Scorpio Sign. This shows a person who is seen like a Guru in foreign lands in matters related with Religion, Spirituality and Occult. It shows a person who went to foreign lands and had to face some turbulent and transformative situations which changed the person totally in spiritual guru or an occultist.
Pisces Ascendant -
If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 12th house in Aquarius. This position is completely different. This guy is working in large organisations in foreign lands and seen as Guru/Leader in that organisation. His job is mostly related with Finance field. In both these positions, person earns lots of wealth in foreign lands.
Saturn also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as an Ascendant, Saturn in 12th house (in Sagittarius/Capricorn respectively) shows lack of losses actually. As Saturn limits the results of the house it sits, in 12th house of losses, it limits the losses of person. So, actually it is good position for steadily improving your wealth. As Saturn represents fields related with Law, this surely shows a lawyer working in foreign lands or in MNC. In the sign of Sagittarius, it shows someone taking up the responsibility of religion in foreign lands, means some religious guru travelling in foreign lands to communicate his message.
If Rahu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 12th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Capricorn in 12th house actually is the strongest indication of Foreign Settlement as karaka of Foreign Things is in the House of Foreign Lands. Anyone with such a placement and going through Rahu MD, can find all the material wealth and accomplishment of material desires in Foreign Lands.
Likewise, If Ketu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 12th house in Libra then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually separates person from Spirituality and Foreign Lands. As Ketu represents our past life accomplishments, these people have already accomplished highest level of Spirituality and already enjoyed enough in Foreign Lands. So, 1st of all they are not much inclined to go to foreign lands or listen to any spiritual guru, but even if it happens, they feel disconnect too early.
