How we sleep and wake up

This summer I read an article about the 12th house in the astrological chart that changed how I went about waking up in the morning. The last house in the chart, the 12th house is a bit hard to define, but generally astrologers say it has to do with our self-undoing, our unconscious, places of retreat, places of forced confinement like monasteries, hospitals and prisons, and foreign lands.
