The 11th House in Astrology
The 11th house rules your friends, groups, charity, and hopes and dreams. The sign on the cusp and planets in the house can show the kind of friends you're attracted to, the qualities you want in a friendship, and how you are as a friend. Any groups or organizations you belong to fall under the 11th house. Charity also falls here (mostly organizations as opposed to one person), though 'helping others' seems to be more in a distant way. What your hopes and dreams are for your life and future and how you treat them are all 11th house matters. This house is opposite the 5th house and therefore on an axis with it, and both house are social houses. The 11th house is ruled by Aquarius and Uranus, and is a succedent house.

How you view the future and what your dreams are can be tied to your emotions, and may fluctuate with your feelings.

You value who you are as an individual, and you don’t want to blend in and be like everyone else, but it can cause you to reject everyone else to try and make yourself seem more special. Insecurity is the root of the problem. The 11th house also rules your dreams, and Saturn here can delay you getting your dreams until later in life, or cause you to not commit yourself to any dream. Release the fear that holds you back.
