11th House Meaning
What Is The 11th House In Astrology?
In Astrology, the eleventh house is the house of friendship, community, humanity, large groups, our social life as well as people and friends. It refers to clubs, memberships, hopes, goals, ambitions, wishes, social groups, associations and humanitarian interests.
It also refers to self-realization, liberty, legislation and regulation.
The Eleventh House symbolizes goals and objectives, also friendships and membership in groups. The work and success in society that is represented by the tenth house is released through individuals and shared times in the activities associated with the eleventh house.
When you have Planets in this house, they indicate how your visions are ruled for the future and also group organizations and friendships will operate in your life.
The eleventh house is a succedent house. Its natural sign ruler is Aquarius and its natural planetary ruler is Uranus.
Acquaintances and friends, groups, organizations, hopes, wishes, aspirations, personal goals, our true inner purpose, our feeling of the group and our strong dreams for humanity.
The Eleventh House is commonly referred to as the House of Friendship. And it’s in this house of friends that we find strength in numbers. We see the power of the collective, the group. Groups addressed by this house include clubs, networking groups, organizations and professional associations. The focus here is on the activities we undertake within these groups, how we make a difference and as a result, how we grow and actualize our true selves. Further, it’s the group, by virtue of its collective strength, which helps to define what we as individuals will do.
As we grow, we have more opportunities and possibilities available to us, and the Eleventh House addresses these. Our interactions and efforts are in keeping with our priorities in life; these interactions have the ability to enhance our lives. A labor of love? Yes, in many ways. Through our friends and group activities we add substance and meaning to our lives and to society.
The Eleventh House also speaks to destiny — in simple terms, our hopes and dreams, what we desire and what we want to achieve. Our creative vision is highlighted, the simple act of working toward our maximal selves. The power of collective creation, as well as the creative sparks generated by the group, are also important to this house. By banding together, we can create so much more.
In joining with our friends, we not only accomplish a great deal, but we can also enjoy the fruits of our labor. The Eleventh House of friends also addresses the kind of friend we are: what do we do for others? How do we view our friends? How do they view us? It is our basic character which, to a great extent, defines the friends and groups we choose.
Oftentimes, we work with our friends toward a greater good and in the hope of improving society. This is our philanthropic side coming to the fore, the ability to selflessly and eagerly help others. It is also our humanity manifesting itself most effectively. At times, we may upset the proverbial apple cart, but the sum total of our efforts should be to look at the end result. If that’s good, then the process of getting there, for better or for worse, is worthwhile. Lastly, the Eleventh House also governs stepchildren, foster children and adopted children.

Why Is The Eleventh House Known As The Community Ruler?

Planets In The 11th House
Sun In 11th House
All of this is most likely to focus upon some kind of goal or social ideal. Groups over individuals. You innately believe John Donne’s line that “no man is an island”, and so you gravitate or strive towards groups or teams that share the same aspirations. For the same reason, friendships are very important to you. In addition, you often display an interest, or passion even, for freedom and reform in some field of activity.
With the sun in the eleventh house, you tend to get buried in the group you belong to; or sensing the possible loss of your individuality, you rebel against the group you initially rebelled with! But then splinter groups and sudden endings to friendships and associations are all part of your life’s course of development. Today’s radical is tomorrow’s conservative. In the end, it is all part of your striving to uphold some humanitarian cause, through campaigns, inventions or agendas that aim to help mankind. You are a great appreciator of people-power.
Moon In 11th House
All these needs and feelings are most likely to be met through friends, clubs, society movements of people, or the nurturing of some ideal. All these matters will go through phases of how we feel, causing your personal goals and allegiances to fluctuate. Overall, you feel like you keep your emotional life fairly light and breezy.
You prefer not to get morbid and heavy in one-to-one relationships and, if things get that way, you will go out with friends or to somewhere impersonal. This can be a good safety valve, but a bad habit if you make your friends or groups into an emotional crutch. Learn to take a break from them every so often in order to re-establish your own identity, not to mention facing any more intimate emotional commitments.
All the same, you are capable of appealing to the crowd on an emotional level, which means that you have a finger on the pulse of the public’s attitude to political, sociological or cultural issues
Mercury In 11th House
You employ and improve this mentality of yours by gaining, or giving out, knowledge and mental stimulation through group involvements. You prefer a class/workshop situation to just book learning and your opinions gain breadth and depth through sharing them. Because your mind flourishes in this way, you are kind of ‘plugged in’ to the mind of the group itself so you can become a natural spokesperson, one who’s able to maintain a group’s goals and principles. You may
Venus In 11th House
You want to experience these senses and bring this style of loving into an open, friendly, possibly somewhat detached and idealistic sphere of social activity. Your Venus-Sign qualities may or may not lend themselves well to this. You very much want your partner to be on good terms with your friends and associates and to share your social aspirations.
Conflicting aims or society values can spell disruption or death to a relationship. You view and feel like knowing a lover initially as a friend is a strong pre-requisite to having a harmonious relationship and the actual meeting of your mate is more likely to occur at a club or some group gathering. Your gut-instinct is quite evolved or future-oriented, but in this respect you are inclined to forget that one person’s meat is another one’s poison.
Mars In 11th House
Your way of asserting yourself most easily finds expression through initiating activities amongst your friends and associates – which
Alternatively, you could actually discover your assertiveness through involvement in competition with friends and other groups. Your personal drive is often sparked off by your
Jupiter In 11th House
Most of all you apply this faith to, or look for it in, your friendships and teamwork or group activities. You probably have a wide range of friends. You are attuned to, and enthusiastic about, new trends of thought, people movements and the like. In turn, you are capable of generating interest in such things as well as attracting subscriptions towards them.
You can be a fundraiser for humanitarian societies. The pitfall here is that you can lose your own good self in all such networking groups and involvements. Behind this is a reluctance to express your more individual desires, because you’re afraid of standing out or being censored by whatever group it is that you identify with. The paradox here is that you are probably the strongest link in the chain, not the weakest.
Saturn In 11th House
These lessons and tests to learn focus largely upon friendships and group involvements. In this way you can deal with reserve and self-doubt by objectifying them. A difficulty in forming close connections would indicate that you’re trying to keep too much to yourself. Perhaps it’s through just one close friendship that you may dissolve many blocks and a feeling of stiffness. A trusted friend is a symbol of trust in yourself.
Another lesson here is that of learning to work in co-operation with people. In order to do this, it’s necessary to accept your own ordinariness because any elitism could be interpreted as a disguise for your own self-doubt. Out of either of these scenarios you yourself can emerge as the trusted friend or group co-ordinator. This is where the success of this placement waits.
Uranus In 11th House
With the Aquarius sign ruling this planet in the house of friends, where Aquarius rules, your urge for change and awakening is most likely to manifest itself quite directly in your pursuance of society ideals and collective goals. Friendships and group involvements also act as clear indicators of how well you are on course with your true path in life, as they stimulate your principles through attack or support.
Groups of friends can change quite radically as you shift gears through life and get closer to your goal. However, it’s important that you don’t confuse your goals with your material ambitions, because the former
Neptune In 11th House
For you, such sensitivity and spiritual striving find a focal point in your friendships, ideals, and group situations. Communes and workshops are, or have been, common on your agenda. Such friends or groups could make or break you, for they could be the typical bad lot that leads you astray, or the band of kindred spirits which lights your way.
Whatever group or movement you find yourself in the midst of, what you get out of it always depends upon how honest you’re being with those associates and upon how able you are to distinguish your own identity and values from those of that peer group and people as a whole. There is a double-edged situation here that on the one side inspires you through a feeling of being borne on a wave towards the common goals of Humanity, and on the other, leaves you tossed upon the whims and fancies of the crowd merely dreaming of a better world and not actually doing anything about it.
Where your imagination is concerned, it is best used socially in the way that you can inspire others with your fine considered vibe of togetherness. Any artistic talents are well employed to this same end, rather than solely for your own amusement
Pluto In 11th House
Life transformations are most likely to occur through friendships, group situations, or any pursuit that furthers some cause. In fact, a crisis of some kind could well lead to your taking up a cause. A strong reformist streak can then develop in you and you’d need to be prepared to stand up and be counted at some stage.
Because you emanate, consciously or otherwise, this aura of social change or upheaval, others are likely to react against it by projecting their own unconscious feelings (good and bad) on to you. They then reject you or are strongly drawn towards you, or both, alternately.
Looked at in another sense, this propensity gives you a talent as a group leader and for paving a way into the future. You probably don’t have that many friends, but the few that you do have are friends for life. Such friendships plumb the depths of your being.
