What Are The 12 Houses Of Astrology?
The 12 houses of astrology each govern a theme that leads our lives. The first house is all about beginnings and the forming of identities while the 12th house is about endings and letting go, bringing the houses around full circle. It all depends on where the sun was rising at the moment that you were born and how the timing of your birth aligns with the universe at large and the planets within it.
The way the planets fall, gives information that can be quite revealing about your personality. That’s why the 11th house, in particular, is quite unique.
The 11th House Is Unique
The 11th house is ruled by Aquarius along with Saturn and Uranus. This house is known for human connection and big groups such as friendships and humanity as a whole. Those born into it tend to be a bit eccentric but that’s what makes them unique.
They’re visionaries who have lots of ideas on how to create a better future for humanity and are quite sensitive to injustices. That’s why many of their relationships are based on ideals and held to a high standard. They have a relationship with the collective and hope for the happiness of a group over just an individual. However, these themes come up in different ways depending on the planets’ alignment.
The Sun Makes It A Visionary
The sun influences this house by giving it a certain vitality that increases awareness of the self and the outside world. This means that those in the 11th house have an open-minded perspective that is continuously expanding and allowing them to look at the bigger picture.
This triggers a desire within them to dream big and chase after those dreams not only for themselves but to help humanity as well. It also helps them think of creative ideas to put their plans into action. Their hope and vision of the future are an integral part of their identity.
The Moon Makes It Emotional
When the light of the moon shines on this house, it can make those who aligned in it feel quite emotional. They might not even understand the reason behind their distress as the influence could operate on a subconscious level.
However, it’s that same heightened level of emotion that connects them so strongly to people and causes. They’re able to relate to others on a deep empathetic level and naturally and easily make strong connections. It also makes them kind kindred spirits. However, when they’re the ones struggling it can make them feel isolated and it can be hard for them to ask for help and support.
Mercury Makes It Forward Thinking
The way Mercury rules over the 11th house allows all those within it to access natural ease with communication, information, and technology. This means that not only do these personalities have a lot of great and innovative ideas but they also love exchanging them with others. They have a voice and they want to be heard. This makes them gravitate towards leadership positions or join councils and boards of some sort.
They are always eager to find solutions to problems. They’re do-ers and have a hard time avoiding confrontation or sitting still when they are dealing with an issue. This translates into their communication style as well which is open and honest. They may come off as blunt, but they are usually appreciated for their genuine honesty.
Venus Makes You Date Outside The Box
Rarely do those under the 11th house want to follow the typical dating expectations. While they would be happy eventually settling down and maybe even starting their own family, their dating patterns aren’t that linear. Under Venus, the planet of love and romance, having it in the 11th house still stays true to youe eccentric nature. Those with this personality want to date someone who is just as original and motivated as them.
They don’t want a boring relationship that risks being stagnant. They hope to find someone who can help them on their mission to better the world in their own way, to support them, to think outside the box with them, and to not be afraid of being themselves.
Mars Drive Its Passion
Mars is responsible for action, drive, passion, and energy. It marks the difference between just having an idea or plan and actually manifesting it into existence. It instills the needed amount of passion that motivates to keep pushing forward. With Mars in the 11th house, your drive and passion feed off those around you and the cause that you’re chasing. If you’re in this house, you often act as a mirror. If you’re around people with negative energy who always find excuses, you tend to feel drained and down.
However, when you find like-minded people who share your drive for change and growth, you flourish. You even have no problem taking charge to ensure that your plans come to fruition. However, what separates you from others is the way you’re able to get things done while still making sure everyone is taken care of. Your circle may be small but it is mighty.
Jupiter Gives It Good Fortune
You can rest assured that luck is on your side. This is especially helping in filling in the parts of your ideas that can’t be planned for. Thanks to Jupiter’s luck and good fortune, the universe tends to have your back. You don’t know how but somehow things find a way to just work out for you. This helps you keep growing and expanding as whenever you get through one door, another one opens up.
Lucky for you Jupiter Jupiter’s expansive energ aligns well with your forward-thinking mentality. It opens up the 11th house and sets it for success in friendships, connections, and relationships in general.
Saturn Keeps You From Feeling Stuck
One thing you probably can’t stand is getting stuck in a routine that makes you feel limited and like you’re missing out on an opportunity. While Saturn is all about structure, discipline, and karma, in the 11th house it can be more extroverted. Even those who are usually introverted find it easier to socialize and get along with others. The only difference is that you don’t like feeling pressured by others or forced to interact with anyone.
It very much has to be on your time and on your terms. You can’t stand when others are fake with you because you take pride in your authenticity and expect the same from others.
Neptune Attracts Your Friendships
In terms of spirituality, dreams, and intuition, with Neptune in your 11th house, you tend to put a lot of trust in the universe when it comes to your decisions and relationships. You believe that things will always somehow work out the way they’re supposed to so even when you’re in a conflict with someone, you give it time and space to get resolved. You believe the right people will stay in your life and you accept that some people come in and out of your life for a reason.
However, be careful because sometimes despite attracting people towards you for your eccentric and creative nature, you also sometimes see the good in people and fail to see relationships clearly, even when they hold some red flags.
Uranus Encourages You To Just Be Your Genius Self
Finally, Uranus aligns perfectly with your personality since it’s just as eccentric, invested in change and idealist…Basically it’s very Aquarian just like you are. It is actually ruled by Aquarius. This is why with Uranus in the 11th house, you are able to be unapologetically yourself and even proud of how different you are. You may stand out and separate yourself from the mundane and the ordinary but that’s what pushes you to the top. Be proud of your independence, and continue changing the world!
That’s right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.
