What does 12 mean spiritually?
The number 12 meaning is as follows.
Number 12 is related to new beginnings. There are 12 months in a year and after 12 months we start a new year. The new year is always a symbol of new beginnings, new year resolutions, and intentions to change old habits.

Angel number 1 symbolizes new beginnings and angel number 2 is a sign to have faith that everything works out as it should (i.e. something new is beginning and this will have a good outcome). Therefore, don’t be afraid to start new things and embrace new opportunities. These new opportunities can take the form of a new job offer, promotion, or any change that requires flexibility or adaptability.
This is the perfect time to start new things and embrace new opportunities.

You need to work on your relationships
According to Kyle Gray, the significance of the number 12 is that all relationships are assignments. This includes your friends, colleagues, family members, and romantic partners.
Put effort into your relationships. Be a good friend or partner. Treat others the way you would like them to treat you. And as social psychologist Roy Baumeister explains, it is even more important not to do to others what you don’t want to be done to you. It’s not enough to treat your partner or other people the way you would like to be treated, but you also need to ensure that you eliminate the negative things that you wouldn’t like done to you. For example, hold your tongue when you are angry, refrain from blaming your partner, etc. Research has shown that it isn’t enough to do the positive things you would like others to do to you. You also need to refrain from negative things. Both are important but refraining from the negative should get priority.
Take some time to reflect on all the relationships in your life in order to get a better understanding of which relationships need some TLC. For example, what is your family atmosphere like? Is it one of harmony, collaboration, and selflessness? If not, what can you do to improve it?
All relationships need work and TLC. This is a good time to reflect on the relationships in your life at the moment to understand which ones need some work, love and attention.

You are happiest when you are surrounded by children because you are a child at heart. You are a friendly and sociable person which describes why you have many friends with different personalities. When it comes to those you love, you feel deeply and are willing to sacrifice and suffer for those that you love.

You are competent and skilled in whatever you do and you strive to be creative in all aspects of your life. You have a great vocabulary and you can express yourself well, which makes you an interesting person and a good teacher. Since you are interested in so many fields, you must be careful not to do too many things at once as you might find yourself stuck.

They are generally popular and make good companions. They will always consult with people they trust before they make decisions as they need a little reassurance. However, self-reliance is important to them and they don’t like to depend on or lean on others. They are intelligent and resourceful. They believe in cooperation and don’t like to use force on others. Instead, they prefer to get authority by consensus. Number 12 people are positive people and easy to get along with.
Number 12 people have negative qualities like everyone else. They find it hard to ‘forgive and forget’ and tend to bear a grudge because of their hypersensitivity. Therefore, when someone insults them they will keep thinking about it which will cause them to be unhappy for a while. Instead of confronting the person who hurt them, they keep it in their hearts. Therefore, when you deal with a number 12 people it is important to have tact and to be sensitive.
