The birth chart is a blueprint of the sky at the moment of your birth. Sounds extraordinary?
Well, it rather is!
Each of the nine planets in Vedic astrology exists within a House (Bhava) in your birth chart (Kundli). Apart from providing invaluable insights about your personality, the placement of the planets illustrates how you are connected and how you coexist with the world around
you. Moreover, the 12 Houses in your Kundli are a roadmap of your past, present and future. As the planets in the sky move across these houses, all sorts of events are triggered in your life — both tangible and emotional.
Every house in the horoscope carries a unique meaning and represents a specific area of life.Indeed, the twelve houses are truly what makes astrology so spectacular. How these houses work is fairly complex, but we will make it easy for you to understand what the 11th house in Kundli is all about.
The 11th House in Kundli is known as Labh Bhava meaning House of Profit, Wealth and Honour. Thus this house indicates the profits we will make during different phases of our life. But it is not just about personal ambition – it indicates our attitude towards society and the concept of group advantage.
This house reveals what we want in the highest sense. More so, the way the eleventh house manifests, is determined by the energies of the 10th house. As our capacity to impact changes grows in the tenth house, so do our ambitions in the eleventh House. The 11th house represents the universal nature of the world -- the need to endure and stand tall amidst the great pressures of life (10th house) and the ultimate transformations (12th house).
Determining the placement of the 11th house ascertains how you will fare socially and financially, and whether you are likely to succeed in these spheres. Since the 11th house relates to Labha or gains, it is crucial to determine what will bring you success and what will not, whether your hopes and desires will be realised, whether you will succeed in your endeavours, and so on.
The 11th house also presides over the aspect of pleasure. Besides, it indicates profit, prosperity, progress in the attempts made, peace after the aspirations have been realised,and the permanent bonding of friendship. The desire to attend reunions is indicated by the eleventh house. The reason for analysing the aspects of this house is to understand the type of emotional attachments you are likely to have.
The eleventh house also rules friendship, teamwork, networking and humanitarian pursuits.This house also represents our collective goals and aspirations for the betterment of humanity.
