The 11th House: Reach out!



by The Astrologer's Daughter June 07, 2010 03:07 PM EST
"I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time -- namely, that if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be." -- Joseph Campbell

With the boom of methods for reaching out to people online, it seems the whole globe has been placed in the 11th house of social networking! It is the Age of Aquarius after all -- and while the social love fest may be more cerebral than cozy --we are all facing monumental opportunities to increase the visibility of our artistic gifts and join forces with like-minded souls.

Of course, as with everything, there is also greater opportunity for burn out or misuse with increased accessibility to connect. At a recent commencement address at Hampton University in Virginia, even President Obama acknowledged that we are bombarded with all kinds of content which he warned can be used as a distraction more than a means of empowerment. The 11th house similarly has a shadow side which Steven Forrest explains eloquently in his book "The Inner Sky." An unsuccessful navigation of 11th house terrain may have us " ... seek friends at random. Friends 'happen to us'. We find ourselves involved in a network of associates and peers who contribute nothing to our life strategy. They simply take up our time."

The idea behind the 11th house which Forrest encourages is to first pick your goals and then come the friends. "Friends" in the 11th house are a distinct breed from your 7th house intimates, the idea being that these people come together to forward goals through mutually beneficial work relationships. It's a different kind of intimacy, clearly. The sign on the cusp as well as planets, natal or by transit, will cue you into the nature of your support group. These are the types of people or the quality of energy that will provide a supportive network. We are never isolated and while this can be a bit overwhelming, we might as well as jump on the ride and use it consciously for greater creative visibility. Also known as the house of hopes and dreams, the 11th house reminds us that rarely do we reach the top by ourselves.
