The friendships and the collective experiences

Regardless of our individual personality and the place we occupy in the world, it is in interacting with others that we build ourselves as human beings. We are essentially social beings, we live in groups and in them we relate, make friends, create bonds, share experiences.

In Astrology, it is the 11th house in our Astrological Chart that tells us how we integrate ourselves into the collective. In it are awakened the impulses to participate and give back, plural thinking, the way we look at and care for others, and also the friendships that mark our lives.

First: what are astrological houses?

When we look at our astrological chart, we notice that the mandala is divided into twelve parts, resembling the design of a pizza. These parts, not always divided in the same size, are the Astrological Houses, which represent the various areas of experience in our lives, the scenario where we will write our stories and realize our potentials.

It is by calculating the birth chart, with the day, time, and place of birth, that a detailed interpretation of each individual’s Astrological Houses can be made. Each House, therefore, has a representation in our life.

The planets and signs present in these houses speak of the way we react to the various aspects of life, how we channel our energy, and the points we need to develop along our journey.

But it is worth remembering that even the so-called “empty houses”, which have no planets, receive the energy from the signs that, in turn, are ruled by a planet. Therefore, all Astrological Houses have energy and importance!

What does the 11th house represent?

The 11th house represents human values, collective actions, solidarity, and humanitarian interests. It also symbolizes the maintenance of a healthy social fabric, what we want for future generations, and the movements with which we can get involved in order to realize these desires.

It also deals with group identity. It refers to any association of people-institutions, NGOs, class associations-to whom we join, either to feel safe or to socialize with whom we have an affinity of thought. Because it is this place of belonging to the community, it is where we can find support and encouragement for our achievements.

What does the 11th house teach us?

To think of the collective, of the community in which we live, of humanity as a whole, this is the great lesson of the 11th house. We need to leave our ego strength aside and actively take part in the task of building a better and fairer world for everyone. After all, regardless of our individuality, by nature we are social beings. It is where we awaken our impulse to contribute and belong to something bigger than ourselves.

In the 11th house, ruled by the sign of Aquarius, the planets Uranus and Saturn, and associated with the Air element, we learn to work with social objectives, welcoming and respecting differences, understanding that behind them there may exist something in common. From political militancy, through volunteer work, to coordinating a class in school, all are experiences associated to it.

Bearer of a libertarian and borderless social dimension, the 11th house offers us a gift: the opportunity to make friends. It is the most intimate and delicate part of such a vast and universal house, because the experience of friendship amplifies the power of the heart to love.

The freedom and detached attitude that we usually have with friends is hardly repeated in intimate and family relationships. With them, we tend to charge less, to share them with other people, to wish them to live far away from us just because it is better for them. Friends are the family of the heart that we choose to follow together on life’s journey.

The astrological positions of the 11th house indicate what attracts us to a friendship, and what our best resources are for building relationships of this nature. Let’s take a look at some of these characteristics?
