11th House Astrology & Your Natal Chart
Astrology charts have 12 houses, and each link to different parts of life. Your natal chart is a snapshot of the locations of the planets, other bodies, and houses in the Zodiac at the moment you're born and from the location you're born at. Each of your natal houses connects to different parts of your life and personality.
The eleventh house is ruled by Uranus, unconventional and iconic. Uranus helps the eleventh house color outside the lines and push outside of comfort zones.

A Strong Eleventh House in Astrology
Some may have a super strong natal second house. This can be the case for you if you have:
- a stellium (3+ planets) in the 11th house
- your Sun, Moon, or Chiron in the 11th house
- your North or South Node in your 11th house
- your 1st house ruler in the 11th house
- your 11th house cusp or ruler anaretic (at 29 degrees)
- retrograde Mercury, Venus, or Mars in the 11th house or ruling the 11th house
When you have a strong 11th house, this can mean your future is super important to you, and you can have big dreams and be hopeful about what you're capable of building. You can also embrace change, and likely need quite a bit of it in your life or you get bored quickly.
You're a true individual, and you need to celebrate what makes you so unique. Boxing yourself in only hurts you severely. But friends are also important for you, so you're someone who needs to both be true to yourself, and also finds your place where you can be true to yourself, with others who celebrate your true self.
