A person with Sun in the 11th house has a distinct awareness of the connection with all human beings. Fulfillment comes through the development of friendships, group and Internet participation. Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where they really shine and express their creativity. They are socially concerned and aware people, and others matter on a broader, and more humanitarian point of view. The Sun here believes in the rights of the others, and their vision of human nature is a positive one, full of potential and further growth.
Joining with future orientated people advocating social and cultural reforms, the individual creates social awareness and visionary solutions which help make human lives better. Such group endeavors include environmental causes, advocating human rights, political pursuits, scientific research and community welfare groups. They are interested in fostering growth or progress in society, whether in the educational, social, or humanitarian sphere. They combine working cooperatively with an ideology, Philanthropic philosophy, are striving towards a system that aims to help others on some level. The main concern for these people is that their objectives are reached and they often put forth original and innovative ideas to help move things forward.
The individual is sociable and they make friends easily with people from all walks of life, and they feel most at home when amongst a group of like-minded people. For these reasons their profession may be linked with working with groups of people, particularly one with a humanitarian cause.
Furthermore, the Sun in the 11th house gains a sense of self-awareness and individuality of being part of a group. Ordinarily, there is a strong association between friends and success and the individual shines best in the company of people who are on the same wave length. Teamwork makes it possible to achieve things much easier, by pulling together to achieve common goals and wishes for the future.
This Sun feels as if everything is bleak and pointless if there is no sense of contact with those who share a like-minded vision. The vision may not be as grand as total global transformation. It might be the development of a particular sphere of knowledge, or a particular artistic path. But whatever the Sun sign, there must be a sense of belonging to a larger community with whom one can get enthused, share ideas, and push things forward. Apollo's Chariot: The Astrological Sun
The eleventh house traditionally represents our relationships to those in the group or organisation. As a rule, if the Sun receives generally positive aspects (Sextile and Trine) then their relationships with groups should run relatively cooperatively; if they are challenging (square, opposition) then more disputes may occur and friendships broken off.
Those with the Sun in the 11th house have a certain idealism, innovative approach and belief in people-power. Problems can arise when the individual over-identifies with a group. Usually, though, they need to create a group and lead others towards some kind of shared goal. From an individual point of view, the 11th house represents man’s urge to identify himself with the collective, to contribute part of himself to the needs and aspirations of the group as a whole. The Sun in the 11th house has many hopes and visions of what they want to achieve in life, and inspire others with their ideas.
Hi all. I have been studying astrology for over 12 years and it is a real passion of mine, one which I enjoy sharing with all others interested in delving deeper into the greatest tool for self-discovery out there. I am a full time mum of two lovely boys, and I write astro-related articles to help me to keep learning, studying and evolving my astrological techniques.
