The Eleventh House of Community, Group Activities, and Social Progression
Organizations, social networks, societies, teams, administrations, fraternities, etc. Depending on what planet(s) you have in this house, if any, and which sign rules it, this is where the stars reveal how you socialize, interact, and serve the masses.
The Aquarius house is where we see how we become one piece of a much larger picture and the roles we play as members of whichever that group effort may be placed. Understood as the house of teamwork, it gives one insight into the common goals they have with others that play impersonal roles large enough in their lives that it helps them to expand in their personal lives as well.
Quite a future-thinking house, with it’s influence of air and Uranus, one may understand their own motives at a deeper level by looking into what the eleventh house knows about their dreams for the future, wishes for what they’d like to come, hopes for what they’d like to change, and goals always present in the back of their minds.
Although we can recognize friendships, allies, bonds, relationships, etc. in this house, they are less likely to be as personal and as close as one may find in some of the other houses (like the 3rd, 5th, and 7th houses).
One will most likely, however, get a broad sense of the types of people they enjoy being around, their own sense of camaraderie, how well they play with others and in a team, how important socializing is to them, what they seek from others, while hoping to receive back, and the unique roles they play within their communities.
We know that the sixth house is the house of service, but the eleventh house can also share one’s sense of service through their chosen services, special skills, resources they lend to causes, gifts they offer to others, and efforts extend to help something expand with co-creation.
Ultimately, this is the house that pushes the individual to become more than just himself.
Alternatively, if the house has no planets in the and is ruled by a sign like Scorpio or Cancer, it is more likely that this person is not as social and may not be a part of many groups throughout their lives due to having a preference in being alone or for various other reasons, depending on the exact chart measurements.

What Each Planet/Sign Means in the Eleventh House:
–Aries/Mars: Possibly the leader of your chosen group; an incredibly independent, social pioneer; hectic life others wouldn’t have the energy to take-on; stimulated by challenges from others and warrior-driven spirit that makes you aggressively competitive to win for social or political causes; will go head to head with anyone to protect an underdog; has most likely been known as the “rough and rowdy one” within a group they’ve been a part of at some point in their lives; is the life of the party until rubbed the wrong way; can sometimes take passions for causes to extremes.
–Taurus/Venus: Has a dislike for shallow pursuits within socializing and only extends effort to be a part of a mass if it’s for loyal group who’s also in it for the long-haul with extreme dedication and commitment; isn’t overly interested in public gatherings, loud events, or having involvement in anything that would harm their good-standing track record; loves being a part of smaller organizations where bonds can become mutually resourceful, laid-back, and understanding; unlikely to be seen more than once where a meeting space is cold, uncomfortable, without pleasantries, and/or where they aren’t familiar with others (which makes them uncomfortable).
–Gemini/Mercury: Probably a part of every different group imaginable and can blend like a chameleon, making them have highly diverse group interests; inconsistent timeliness within social scheduling, but a strong need to network for whatever cause(s) that’s been chosen; was probably a part of a study group or other type of intellectual and/or informative sessions that require nothing more than high intelligence, but may spend the time there talking, making jokes, or arguing playfully instead; involvement in societies or communities require either skills in marketing, I.T., social resources, or other task that needs someone who can speak well and often as a service.
-Cancer/Moon: You are very supportive and protective of your friends and anyone who is your friend, you actually consider them to be your chosen family; you may be a part of a type of group that tends to others by ways of nurturing or caring for others; may support organizations or donate to causes that reflect these ideals mentioned; helpful, attentive, quite tolerant of your fellow tribe members, you may take on the role of the “mother” within your community; if you feel as though someone has betrayed you or really let you down carelessly, you can turn quite callous, cold, and resentful toward this person, while possessing the ability to hold a grudge for a lifetime.
–Leo/Sun: You’re known by practically everyone in your community and are heavily involved in many social events, gatherings, council, etc.; your contribution may be to host such meetups yourself and being friendly and warm toward all who attend; being a regal light of service within any group involvement you partake in, others know you as someone quite giving and selfless with your attention and time; could, perhaps, get overwhelmed occasionally by the needs of your social life and the significant impact you have around anyone you welcome with a smile and may often feel that you have no privacy or time to yourself, but can’t not commit to others as this is your special skill.
–Virgo/Mercury: In whichever social occasion or gathering you attend, you always choose a role that is useful, practical, and for the general welfare of all of those involved; you may, however, at some point feel inwardly jaded by the lack of recognition you think you’ve not gotten by your community, although you’ve chosen to play a rather quiet role; you do not need as much limelight as most others do though and will continue to offer your skills and hand over contributions that allow you to expand as an individual; later in life, you may come to realize that recognition and validation is not something you ever needed from anyone anyway; your special skill is your attention to detail within your teams and organizations, as you have the eye of the hawk in your passions.
–Libra/Venus: No matter what type of group you become involved in or the job you take on within your community, you often naturally mediate between different roles, in your community; you may often feel that you have somehow fallen between different friends, social commitments that conflict and rival one another, or must often divide your time and attention between involvements time and time again because you feel a sense of pride and duty in serving others by being genuinely fair and understanding; you easily find that you have a skill in creating harmony in your environments where many people dwell together; your gift is your just presence that helps to serve others by being open and receptive among anyone and all walks of life.
–Scorpio/Pluto: Although you may not be incredibly social in nature and are likely not a part of many social groups, events, or other busy activities where many people gather together, you do have very passionate and intense friendships that border possessiveness and force; they friendships and tight teams you fall into have the power to transform you, while you also unconsciously tug the transformative strings of others who surround you; having a powerful and even intimidating nature at times, you’re unaware of the large impact you have just by being present; if used carefully and with consideration, you have the ability to serve as a tool of empowerment as contribution within politics or other organizations you commit to.
–Sagittarius/Jupiter: Having an optimistic and child-like spirit among any groups you belong to, you can create a sense of inclusiveness between different cultures, ages, religions, or other backgrounds involved and this is your effortless gift that allows you to expand as an individual – by taking the time to get to know those you come across at a more personal level than most others; if anyone feels lost or unwelcome, they will most likely gravitate toward you to extend a warm hand toward them because you have an innate ability to serve others by naturally making them feel they’re invited to take part; you possess the natural skill of openly sharing wisdom as your contribution to your community with gratitude for all those who have taught you something valuable along the way.
–Capricorn/Saturn: Among your fellow team members, you are the responsible one who appears to have it all planned out and is often one of the few within a group who is dedicated, confident, and serious enough to get everyone quiet enough to get anything done; naturally, you have a gift of turning heads, not for attention, but for the sake of the needs of whatever society or organization you’re leading or are in charge of; likely feeling swamped by all the responsibility, you know if you don’t serve and contribute by taking charge, it will probably fall apart and besides, you want it done correctly anyway; on the other hand, it’s just as possible you suddenly disappear and avoid any responsibility you took on; possessing the skill of just taking control or falling into the “elder” authority, your social life is showing maturity in your community.
–Aquarius/Uranus: Your gift in any group of people you have a part in is that you have a keen ability to see how important everyone’s roles are to your community and how everyone’s separate skills make up the whole scene; your contribution is by being a vibrant reminder of the path you’re forging in society; you have a very special skill of being a team member of all the teams who shares a friendly and progressive part that allows all to expand, while you often feel you have really done nothing at all; you have resources in all places equally- just by knowing everyone; your service is by being a beacon of respect to all, equal distribution of good will, and offering efforts within any organization that needs a bit more color that breathes fresh life.
–Pisces/Neptune: During some part of your life, you were likely a huge part of your community, as a member of many types of groups, social events, or serving other types of organizational efforts; other times, you probably weren’t part of any of it and became so quiet that some even wondered if you were still alive; the truth is that you put other’s needs before your own very frequently and you work with people in needed intervals of time because you have a gift of being highly sensitive to the society you belong to, which means you work hard until you become overwhelmed and then must take time for yourself by allowing calmness to envelope you as you prepare for the next wave you’ll serve in, which requires your unmatched sympathy; great capacity to expand others with your natural gift of altruism.
