11th house astrology model


The Eleventh House

The 12 houses can be subdivided into four groups: the angular houses (1st, fourth, 7th and 10th) that fall counterclockwise away from the horizontal and vertical  angles in the above model; the succedent houses (2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th) that follow them; and the remaining four cadent houses (the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th) immediately clockwise of the angles. The angular houses are by far the strongest group. The second strongest group is the succedent houses and the eleventh house is one of them. The succedent houses are involved with your desires and your emotional nature and have a stable or fixed nature similar to the fixed signs of the same ordinal numbers.

The eleventh house is where we find our identity within a group; it symbolizes one-to-many relationships as distinct from seventh house one-to-one relationships. It rules friends, groups, our social circle, membership in societies and organizations, ideals and aspirations shared by the groups to which we belong, and in general situations in which we have to change our behavior to get along with more than one other person at the same time. Planets in the eleventh house show the kind of friends we attract to us or the kinds of energy we experience in relation to groups. Many planets in this house indicate that we live a large part of our lives in connection with our friends or groups, and often need group support to accept or value what we are doing.

A planet is said to rule a house when it is the ruler of the sign on the cusp or beginning of that house. Using this concept, locate the ruler of your eleventh house, then notice the house it occupies. The house the eleventh-house ruler is in holds experiences that can help you to have rewarding friendships, integrate yourself in your community or with groups, and attain your idea of happiness (eleventh house). That's what the eleventh-house ruler is doing in the house it occupies: gaining experience to fill the needs of the house it rules. The eleventh-house ruler's aspects and sign show its ease or difficulty in fulfilling those eleventh house needs. These principles are true of every house ruler and every planet. In this case, oppositions between the rulers or occupants of the eleventh and the fifth houses may be asking for better discrimination between friendships and sexual relationships.

Famous people who were born with a very strong eleventh house (both the Sun and the natural ruler of the eleventh house Uranus in the eleventh) are/were Victor Borge, Michael Caine, Barbara De Rossi, Arlo Guthrie, Mike Hawthorne, Charles Hermite, James B. Irwin, David Janssen, Marc Edmund Jones, Jack Lambert, D. H. Lawrence, Barry Manilow, Marcel Marceau, Margaret Mead, Thomas Merton, Michael Milken, Daniel Moynihan, O. J. Simpson, Ricky Skaggs, Meryl Streep, Donald Trump, Ugo Tagnazzi, Donald Trump, Al Unser, Frankie Valli and Gloria Vanderbilt.

Astronomically speaking, the eleventh house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky midway between the Midheaven and the eastern horizon (see above picture) occupied by planets two to four hours after they rise.
