What It Means

The eleventh house is where we find our dreams.  It's where our imagination comes to life. 

This is where we find our idea of an ideal, perfect life, one with no worries, one where everything is beautiful and easy.   The trouble with ideals is that they aren't real.  But in the eleventh house, we strive to make them so.  Without goals, life has no exctement, no joy to live for.  We need to reach for a star, no matter how far off it might be. 


And on a very real level, the eleventh house is where the dreams we have when we are sleeping come to us.  This is where our instincts live, where our connection to the subconscious and subliminal parts of our being hide.  This is where we connect to the universal consciousness described by the great psychologist, Carl Jung.

If we pay attention to our real dreams, we can get a glimpse of what's going on in the deepest recesses of our mind.  If we can do that, we can benefit by the wisdom that has gone before us, we can see the needs of humanity, and we can see how to bring beauty and love into being.


The eleventh house is also about the friends we meet along the way to attaining our goals.  Here we find our teammates, our supporting cast.  We need them and they need us.  Together we can build a better mousetrap.  Friendship is at the very core of love.  Without friendship, there can be no real love.  How can you love someone you don't like and enjoy being with?
