Moon in 11th house

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

Sex. Money. Power. 11th house moon is primarily focused on attaining all of these three ‘desires’ of human life. This moon placement brings forth a very worldly material practical native who has arrived to reap the benefits or the rewards of his or her PAST BIRTH KARMA. So ideally IF the horoscope has a certain good quality and the 11th House Lord is well-placed and strong then this placement strongly signify that the native is VERY FORTUNATE and is BOUND TO ENJOY HIS LIFE BY HAVING ALL THE PLEASURES OF MATERIAL LIFE.

Multiple sexual relationships, love affairs is a peculiar trait of Moon in 11th house. As far as marriage is concerned – rarely do we see that native with this placement is unable to get married because this placement definitely indicates marriage – and in some rare cases early marriage also happens with this placement. However MARRIAGE definitely is promised with this placement – now whether the marriage stays on or the native goes through multiple divorces is purely based on the quality of Venus, Mars and the overall seventh house condition.

Reminds me of Priscila Presley – the wife of the legendary singer and actor Elvis Presley.

Priscilla Presley had her moon placed in the 11th house in Libra sign. She had multiple love affairs – as well as extra-marital affairs during her life. Here is a quick look at Priscilla Presley’s horoscope:

As you can see – her Moon is placed in the 11th house in Vishakha Nakshatra – Libra sign. Libra being a sign of Venus – and on top of that 11th house Moon – both of these factors fired up her love relationships – although she got married to Elvis Presley – still she had several extra-marital affairs as well as many love affairs after her divorce with Elvis Presley. Saturn Rahu conjunction in the 7th house and Saturn Rahu in Ardra (Rahu’s Nakshatra) delivered her a famous husband however also damaged her marriage leading to a divorce. She never married again although her love relationships continued….

As mentioned earlier – this MOON placement brings many pleasures of life including sexual pleasures. Whosoever has this placement is surely blessed with all material comforts – though the level of comforts may vary from person to person since every horoscope has different level of quality to it.

Fluctuation in income, more friends (boyfriend or girlfriend), more recognition within the circle of friends, the feeling of being loved are some of the traits of moon in 11th house. Natives with this placement constantly need a validation from others that he or she is being loved.

These natives cannot imagine a life where there is no friend, no companion, they hate to live alone – they precisely are NOT loners – they always want to be with someone who loves them – cares for them and provides them with a good companionship. Interestingly – 3rd house is all about having a good CONVERSATION – and through this good satisfying COVERSATION – a marriage/relationship is formed which is signified by the 7th house – so a HUSBAND or PARTNER comes through conversation however a GOOD FRIEND also comes through CONVERSATION which is signified by the 11th house since 11th is the perfect house that represent FRIENDSHIP.

When moon is in the 11th, 7th or 3rd – the native is found to be excellent in having group discussions or good conversation. In fact if you have a wife or a girlfriend having moon in 11th or 7th or 3rd – then you will never be bored because your wife or your girlfriend always has a very interesting topic to discus and to converse with you over a hot cup of coffee or tea!

Since 11th house is directly connected with the KAMA TRIKON (Sexual Triangle) – sex becomes significant for these natives. Along with sex – comes too much of intellectualism and the tendency to REBEL against the established traditions and customs. This moon placement generally gives birth to a MODERN UNCONVENTIONAL person who has his or her own set of rebellious ideas, dreams and imagination which he or she tries to attain by not succumbing to the pressures of the society. This moon placement therefore has the potential to INVENT. The native may have the quality of inventing a new product that brings much wealth in his life.

You will be surprised to know that most of the INTELECTUAL REBELS are born with either their moon in the 3rd, 7th or 11th house.

Moon in 11th house is the ultimate peak of Intellectualism. It is necessary to remember that 3rd house is the beginning of intellectual communication, 7th house is the union or a signed deal born out of the intellectual communication while 11th house is the ultimate benefit derived from the union of 7th house.

“What’s in it for me?” is the first question that these natives ask – because they are interested in knowing what benefits they are going to get for doing a certain thing. In a way this is a placement that gives a very practical person who is more interested to know the ‘bottom-line’. You cannot expect a MOTHER TERRESA from this placement – because these natives are not keen on doing social work – they are more focused on doing that which in return brings certain benefits to them. You can say – that this placement does makes one – SELFISH but than unless you become SELFISH how will GAIN and BUILD YOUR WEALTH and earning more and more profits, enjoying benefits and building wealth is the primary goal of the natives born with this placement – so they will not indulge much in selfless activities as that doesn’t serve the purpose of their life.

The most significant drawback of moon in 11th house is that these men and women EXPECT a lot. And because they expect a lot – they face many disappointments and frustration in life.

11th house is a perfect materialistic house – all the worldly affairs and expectations are deeply rooted in this house. The major reason of frustration in this human world is because of too much expectations. In job you are unhappy because your monetary expectation is not fulfilled, in marriage you are unhappy because your marriage expectation is not fulfilled, in sexual relationship you are frustrated because the expected sexual satisfaction is not attained.

Always remember – the more you expect the more you will face frustration.

Being Greedy is one negative shade of this placement and that is very obvious because when your expectations never end – unconsciously you become a greedy person.

GREED is the major cause of the many miseries of this human world. It is GREED that compelled Judas to sell Jesus for a few silver coins.

JUDAS is a perfect example of a REBEL – Christians don’t talk much about JUDAS because JUDAS REBELED against JESUS. He betrayed Jesus. And of all the 12 Apostles – Judas was very close to Jesus. He was also well educated. Jesus loved him much. Jesus had showered so much of love on Judas but the day Jesus revealed that nobody is going to be a successor to him – Judas became angry because unconsciously he was expecting to become the successor to Jesus but Jesus said “Nobody is going to be my successor. I have not come here to create a dynasty. My kingdom is of the other world – the Kingdom of God.”

When Judas heard these words of Jesus – the distance of one foot became a distance of thousands of miles. That same night, Judas betrayed Jesus. He sold him to the enemies for only thirty pieces of silver. Of course, it was done in a very hasty way – in a very unconscious way. When Judas sold Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, he was not aware of what exactly he was doing and what it was going to lead to. On the day Jesus was crucified, Judas was in the crowd with tears in his eyes and he threw away those thirty pieces of silver. He was not aware that this was going to be the consequences of an act done in anger and frustration – he had not thought that his betrayal would lead to the crucifixion of Jesus. Twenty fours hours after Jesus was crucified – Judas hanged himself in a tree and committed suicide.

Suicide is very much possible with this placement because the EXPECTATION and the GREED is too much. And TOO MUCH is the only SIN – says Lao Tzu.

11th house moon natives should introspect and control their greed – because greed is a fat demon with a small mouth and whatever you feed is never enough.

Moon in 11th house native needs two things in life without which he or she cannot live happily and those two things are:

  1. Constant flow of income
  2. Companionship

These natives are highly social people. They hate being lonely. They always need a friend/companion. And because of this natural urge – they often are found in large group of friends. You would rarely find a native with this placement living alone. Being socially active, being always surrounded by friends and feeling loved is what they expect and whenever these expectations are not fulfilled – frustration engulfs them. The feeling of being unloved and the feeling of being unwanted is what breaks them apart.

11th house moon being a highly materialistic placement – it is generally not suitable for spiritual growth as such however this placement is excellent for material growth. Especially if you are a RAHUISH person – meaning RAHU and MERCURY is strong in your birth chart then this moon placement can make you a millionaire. However even though the person becomes a millionaire still his or her greed never ends – their ‘EXPECTATION’ never ends. And that leads them to sadness.

Alexander the Great or Alexander III of Macedon, 356-323 BC wanted to rule over the world. He wanted to conquer the whole world – however he never succeeded – he died in utter disappointment – in utter sadness. Alexander the Great also had his moon in the 11th house – and there was absolutely NO LIMIT TO HIS GREED and to HIS AMBITION. Alexander was born on Sagittarius Ascendant with Mula Rising Nakshatra. His moon was placed in Libra 11th house in Vishakha Nakshatra. Alexander, the Great had his Rahu placed in the third house which brings Ketu in the 9th house.

The essence of the matter is – that 11th house moon is very much attached to the worldly affairs and is in constant search of NEW TERRITORIES so that he can conquer more and thereby attain more power. This is a good placement for SALES MANEGERS whose job is to expand their business in new territories. In todays world – you will find many such ‘Alexanders’ in the corporate world who has the potential to win new territories and thereby upscale their business.

ONE TRADEMARK OF MOON IN 11th HOUSE is that these NATIVES NEVER BECOME POOR. In a way this placement is a Giver of Wealth (Lakshmidayak).This placement continues to attract money and thereby prevents the native from becoming bankrupt or homeless.

The best side of this placement is that the native values friendship. He or she will stay with you even when the whole world has condemned you. These natives understand the significance of friendship.

A friend in need is a friend indeed. 11th house moon natives have the quality of being a true friend. 11th house moon native can give his life for friendship.

That reminds me of a beautiful story – the story of two friends. There was one soldier and he was a 11th house moon native – and it was a second world war – and the enemy was firing madly – his friend was missing – so he said to the Colonel “Sir – my friend has not returned from the battlefield. I am going to search him and bring him back safely”

The Colonel said “Are you mad? The enemy is firing madly – you would not be able to come back”

But the soldier went back to the battlefield – to search for his friend. After many hours – he comes back dragging the dead body of his friend. He is also bleeding badly – he may also not survive for long…the Colonel looks at him and says “ I told you not to go – was it worth?

And the bleeding soldier looks into the eyes of the Colonel and says “ It was worth it – Sir. When I went and got him – he said “ Jim I knew you would come.” — It was worth it!”

This is how a 11th house moon native is – he understands the importance of friendship.

Amitabh Bachchan – known for his great acting talent as well as for many good qualities including the importance he gives to friendship – also has his moon in the 11th house in Libra sign, Swati Nakshatra.

In Translation: “People consider that destinations are difficult to reach. We consider difficulties as our destination. There is a lot of difference between us and the people. People take life as a friend and we take friendship as life.” – Amitabh Bachchan

As mentioned earlier – 11th moon is a sign that life that is destined for much glory, much enjoyment, much pleasures and the fulfilment of desires.

Here is a quick look at Amitabh Bachchan’s birth chart:

As you can see – Exalted Jupiter in the 8th house and Jupiter is the Ascendant Lord. Moon is in Libra – 11th house. 5 planets in the 10th house is yet another positive placement that provided a great film career. The major breakthrough for him was when his movie Zanzeer became a blockbuster – this happened during the end of his Guru Mahadasha. From then onwards there was no looking back and he succeeded in leaps and bounds in SHANI Mahadasha. Certain financial problems came when he was going through Mercury Mahadasha – delays in getting new movie projects happened because Mercury is retrograde – retrograde planet delays and because of the delays the native goes through a lot of frustration and depression.

Yet another great Hollywood star – Michael Douglas also has this placement. His moon is placed in 11th house in Sagittarius sign – Purvashadha Nakshatra. Here is a quick look at Michael Douglas birth chart:

As you can see – in Michael Douglas birth chart – moon is in the 11th house in Venusian Nakshatra – Purvashadha. And Venus is well placed in its own sign – Libra in the 9th house in Chitra Nakshatra. Mars is in the 8th house making this a highly Mangalik Chart. Whenever the chart has a VERY STRONG MARS or is MANGALIK – the person is HIGHLY SEXUAL. At times the person can also become a SEX ADDICT. Michael Douglas admitted to a sex addiction in his 2012 biography, as well as to being an alcoholic. When he was diagnosed with Throat Cancer – he declared that it was ORAL SEX that caused him Throat Cancer.

“Oral Sex caused my cancer.” – Michael Douglas

So many such cases happen – life is ever changing – you never know what you will have to face the next moment – that is why NEVER HURT anybody and NEVER LET THE AIR OF EGO ENTER IN YOUR HEAD because situations chance and so does your destiny – your planets. ORAL SEX is useless and bad – if you really want to have SEX – then do it where it needs to be done. And not elsewhere.

Moon when placed in 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th – the native cannot tolerate narcissism.

Mohan asked “What exactly is Narcissism?

Narcissism is extreme self-involvement to the degree that it makes a person ignore the needs of those around them. While everyone may show occasional narcissistic behavior, true narcissists frequently disregard others or their feelings.

Mohan further asked – “What are the planetary placements that signify a narcissist person?”

Whenever SATURN, RAHU, RETROGRADE OR AFFLICTED MERCURY and MARS are in the KENDRA houses – (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th) – the person is a narcissist. He is self centered, selfish and has absolutely no regards for others or their feelings.

The more negative planets in the center houses of the birth chart – the more the person is a narcissist – always remember this. And the more positive planets in the center houses of the chart – the more the person is an empath.

Overall the placement of 11th house can be described in just one INDIAN WORD – सुखवस्तू (SUKHVASTU). Sukhvastu means a person blessed with the happiness of life – it simply means that he will live with abundance, and will never fell short of money in life.

It is good to have a friend having moon in 11th house – because he is never short of money but also he is never short of affection – he loves his friends – and he is a very social person who understands perfectly – that nobody in this human world can survive as an island.

As long as we live in this human world – each one of us have to DEPEND on each other. You may earn your money – but the food you buy is grown by a poor farmer. You may buy a luxury car but the car is manufactured and serviced by a trained engineer. You may pay for your haircut but to get your haircut you need an expert saloon stylist. By earning money you are becoming financially independent however you should not forget that practically we always remain DEPENDANT on each other.

That is why SOCIETY matters – because we live in a society. 11th house moon natives therefore does well in the society in which they are born – they are good in building communities, groups and does well in taking care of those with whom they befriend.

Attachment towards worldly affairs – दुनियादारी (Duniyadaari – Worldliness) is what this moon brings along – of course it is excellent for material progress however for spiritual progress the person definitely has to take efforts – especially if there are no planets in the 8th or 12th house or no spiritual conjunctions such as Jupiter Saturn, Saturn Moon or Jupiter Sun or Jupiter Mars.

I will not hesitate in mentioning that although this is happy-go-lucky placement – still it has also given much pain to this world because of the greed, the ambition and the never ending expectation that this placement brings.

Every coin has two side – so does every placement has two sides – positive & negative. Depending on the quality of the horoscope, the level of consciousness and the Karmic dues – this moon placement fructifies.

If you are having this placement – then you can try to focus on your self-growth – so that you understand – WHERE TO STOP and WHEN TO STOP. And once you STOP running behind your ambitions and desires – you will be able to sit back and it is only when you slow down – when you sit back that you can OBSERVE WITHIN – and then you will start finding the answer to the question – HOW TO STOP.

At the very last moment of his life – the great Emperor Alexander the Great who was fired up by his ambition says “ ALL IS VANITY.” Imagine – a man who conquered almost half of the world – when on his deathbed says “ALL IS VANITY”. But people haven’t really understood the significance of these words because they don’t want to! Nobody wants to hear the truth – nobody. And that is how we have millions of Alexanders in this world – running and running and running……

It is up to you if you too want to be in this race – though remember the fact that this race has no finish line – the only time when this racing stops is when you die and when on your graveyard – people inscribe “REST IN PEACE”. Now a man who never was able to rest when ALIVE – how is he going to rest in peace and that is how the endless journey of birth and rebirth continues…..until a day comes when you self realize your mistake and you STOP running.

Life is beautiful only when you start searching the beauty within.

Love to all my readers and followers – stay blessed. And remember to meditate every day.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru. 🙏
