Area of Consciousness Universal
through communal endeavour
in House 11
Sun in the 11th House indicates that consciousness is being broadened by
purposeful co-operation and team work. The influence of this house confers
a sense of the need to be part of a group of like-minded people. The Sun
in this house produces members of the armed forces, political activists
and NHS workers. What is important to them is the sense of purpose and
belonging, which comes from working with others towards a common,
pre-defined goal. Unless there are strong influences in H10 there is
unlikely to be much in the way of personal ambition. People with the Sun
in H11, who do not feel as though they have a social conscience, will
bring the group into their lives through their friends or their
children's' activities. If there is little other than domestic
responsibility in the lives of 11th House people then they are likely to
experience a strong sense of futility and lack of fulfillment by the time
of the Saturn Return. Unless there are compen≠sating
in 7th or 8th Houses, 11th House people frequently appear to be less loyal
to lovers and family - other than children - than they are to friends.
Children will be encouraged to become friends and equals as soon as
possible. There is likely to be a marked interest in communalistic
lifestyles and a great faith in the efficacy of the power of the group to
change society. The outlook is likely to be secular rather than religious
and supportive of change rather than transcendence. It is notable,
however, that 11th House people do not always see the group as being the
sum of its members, with the result that, private conduct may be in
flagrant contradiction to the aims of the group.

Relative consciousness, indicating that the soul has awareness of its
creative potential and is now learning to put that in the service of
Mercury is in the 11th House with the Sun it reinforces the communalistic
tendancies and increases the attraction to reforming ideas and movements.
When Mercury is in H11 and the Sun in H10 the need for personal
recognition is likely to be met in the service of a cause or goal
perceived to be socially beneficial.

ideas with like-minded people. Intellectual rapport is usually the most
common basis for the friendships formed by people with Mercury in this
in the 11th House confers the gift of friendship and tends to make a
person extremely sociable. People with this placement of Venus usually
seek to make friends of the children at an early age and the love and
attention, which they give to the children, is not uncommonly to the
detriment of the relationship with the partner. Complete absorption into
an intimate relationship is something, which people with Venus in H11
usually resist on the grounds that it is limiting, unfulfilling and even
self-indulgent. In the house of Aquarius Venus tends to prize friendship
Mars is in the 11th House a person usually chooses to through a group or

however, are very common with this placement because of the tendency of
the Mars person to use the
as a platform for his own views and ambitions.

least one his children, is nearly always the result of a battle of wills
as the child resists the parents efforts to self-realise
the 11th House, Mars is energetic on behalf of others, but tends to be
intolerant and out of touch with their feelings.
in the 11th House attracts a person towards activities, which are humane
in intent. Like Venus, Jupiter in this house confers the gift of
friendship, although the friends are likely to form a less homogenous
group than is the case when Venus is the significator.
parents people with Jupiter in H11 tend to trusting and liberal and their
relationships with their children are characterised
by mutual respect.
Saturn in the 11th House a person has difficulty in trusting and gaining
the acceptance of others. The reason for this karmic situation has to be
sought out from the pattern of the chart as a whole. This placement of
Saturn can also create difficulties with a child, which may arise from the
relation≠ship or may indicate a handicap of some kind.
with this placement of Saturn usually profess not to like groups and
gatherings for a variety of reasons. The fundamental problem, however, is
the sense of inadequacy and insecurity, which Saturn in H11 tends to feel
in the presence of any group of people. Not uncommonly, there is a
paranoiac fear of being talked about and ridiculed whenever others are
gathered together. This placement of Saturn can cause great loneliness and
often has the effect of making a person unduly dependent upon his partner.
Cynicism and a dearth of any idealism are also characteristics of this
in the 11th House is an indication that consciousness needs exposure to
situations, which permit individuality and self-expression. This placement
of Uranus is found in charts, which show that much conformity was required
in past lives, commonly to a collective ideal or communalistic lifestyle.
People with Uranus in H11 disdain to run with the pack. It is not uncommon
for friendships to end abruptly and in acrimony as a result of the
Uranianís refusal to moderate his views or his conduct.
the charts of both men and women. Uranus in H11 can signify the loss of
the children to the partner in the event of a separation, or a subsequent
estrangement from at least one of the children. If this is the case then
there is usually something unconventional about the Uranianís lifestyle,
which requires him to forfeit his parental rights.
placement of Uranus confers a great interest in Occult matters and
frequently results in a precocious involvement in one of the psychic arts.

lifestyles. For a person with this placement of Neptune the group is an
entity superior to the sum of its parts, and in the absence of a group or
movement to amplify his own efforts, he can feel isolated and impotent.
tendency to idealise
friends and children for qualities, which the Neptunian does not perceive
himself to have, goes with this placement,
although it may indeed indicate an extremely gifted or
sensitive child who requires special attention.
in the 11th House indicates that the soul is coming to understand group
energy. Over the course of many lifetimes it will experience the power,
which the group can bestow upon its members and the freedom, which it can
deny the individual. The position of the Sun will afford clues as to how a
person with Pluto in H11 perceives the group in the current lifetime:
the Sun is in the houses of Universal consciousness then Pluto is likely
to indicate a positive attitude towards the power conferring attributes of
the group. Such personalities demonstrate a willingness to toe the party
line and accept the price to be paid for access to group resources. This
combination can produce inflexible attitudes and great intolerance and
insensitivity in personal relationships. It can produce, however, leaders
of enormous vision and persuasiveness.
the Sun is in the houses of Personal and Relative consciousness, however,
Pluto in H11 is likely to create an awareness of the groupís capacity to
overwhelm the individual, because personalities with this placement of the
Sun tend to be deeply suspicious of groups and movements. If ever they do
become involved Pluto is likely to produce abruptly severed connections on
the grounds that the commitment was intrusive or invasive. Friendships and
their relationships with their children can also be affected by their
intransigent refusal to be pressured into accepting something they cannot
with Pluto in H11 demonstrate a great awareness of the power of propa≠ganda
and techniques of mass persuasion, and even when they are repelled they
are usually also fascinated.
Moon in the 11th House indicates that the past life experience has been
one in which the will and wishes of the self were subordinated to the
interests of a group or community.

involvement in the armed forces or who are politically active.
Alternatively the child may be one of a large family, which functioned as

and friendship and a person with Moon in H11 usually seeks out circums≠tances
in which he can gain a sense of belonging from membership of a group with
a sense of esprit, or from a valued circle of friends. In his early years
a person with the Moon in H11 may demonstrate considerable reluctance to
enter into a close one to one relationship, preferring camaraderie to
position of the Sun will determine whether a person with the Moon in H11
can remain in the circumstances which are comfortable to him and continue
to develop or whether he will have to separate out in order to gain a
greater sense of individuality. When it is the latter that is required,
the experience of coming out from the security of the ranks can be the
source of unease, self-consciousness and even guilt.
NOTE: It does appear
that influences coming through the 11th House may not make a serious
impression upon a personís life until comparatively late. This is
especially true in womenís charts. This may be because the emphasis
which Western societies place upon the family unit makes it difficult for
a person with an emphasised
11th House to recognise,
at least in any positive way, their preference for a more communalistic
lifestyle, with the result that orthodox commitments are made, only to
prove themselves less than satisfactory. Whilst Uranus, strong in its own
house, is likely to be the most disruptive of orthodox family life, the
Sun and Venus create within a person a sense of claustrophobia and
futility if there is no effective outlet for energy which needs to be used
in the service of a cause or, at the very least, in the company of
like-minded people. People with any of the inner planets in the 11th House
are likely to be willing to be drawn onto committees at the place of work,
at the childrenís schools and in local constituencies. Indeed, although
the partner of an 11th House person may not realise
it, involvements in group activities is likely to protect rather than
threaten the family life of a person with an emphasised
It tends to be during the early thirties, after the Saturn Return, that a
person with a heavily tenanted 11th House becomes aware that one-to-one
relating and home-centered life alone will never be adequately fulfilling.
If there are no children to Ďdiluteí the intensity then the sense of
dissatisfaction will be even greater.

incarnation with the Sun and inner planets in H11 have been increasing
markedly since the 1960s. This supports the expectation, common in New Age
circles that as the Piscean Age draws to its close, societies will become
