The eleventh house in the horoscope represents your chosen associations. The easiest way to see this is remembering your school days: you were sent to a school without your choice, you were put bin a class and a teacher was appointed to you, also without any choosing on your part, BUT, after a few months you had a few friends, the kids that you played with more, your palls. They were by your choice: from all the kids in your class, you got along better with a few, and they became your friends. This is the essence of the 11th house.
The 11th house deals with your large framework of social contacts. The 3rd house tells the story of the neighborhood in which you live, the 11th house tells where you chose to spend your free time: the extracurricular activities that you have.
The 11th house is where you find your own dreams: some dream of going to the Super Ball once in their life, for others it is visiting the Great Wall of China, and yet someone else dreams of winning the local “green thumb”, these are the dreams that are NOT related to what you do for a living, your status, your family, etc. These are the dreams that are just You, what makes You, the individual, and that brings us to another territory of the 11th house, the presence of your own individuality.
In horoscopes with a strong 11th house, we see many times people that choose to spend time with political activities looking for the betterment of all, or in volunteer work of many kinds. They have many friends and like to experiment with new technology.
In reincarnation terms, this is the house that is mostly concerned with learning how to serve correctly. What is service? Showing people that you care, that things can be better, and giving them what they really need, rather than answering their whimsy wishes.
Planets in the 11th house will bring you situations that will teach you how to take part in the group of your choice, how the power of many individuals will always win over separateness. Beware of the tendency to retreat, scorn and feel superior.
