What the Eleventh House represents in astrology.

Pinterest - Explore Team, Of The, and more!

Natural Sign: Aquarius

Ruling Planet: Uranus

Quadrant: 4th (Top Left)

House Type: Succedent Social

Represents: acquaintances, casual friends, groups, hopes and wishes, organizations

If the Tenth House is where you go out into the world, the Eleventh House is where you meet the world. Now that people know you’re around, it’s time to mingle and make some new friends. These friends are not the close companions of the Seventh House; they’re people who hang out with you every once in a while, old classmates and colleagues from the same school, or fellow members of the same organization. You may not trust each other with your deepest secrets, but you may have similar hopes and wishes. This is the house where you go from being an individual to being part of a larger whole. Here, you go from focusing on your own creativity and expression (the Fifth House; opposite from the Eleventh House) to focusing on what is good for the group. It’s associated with the humanitarian sign of Aquarius, as well as the planet Uranus, which progresses society by shaking things up. The Eleventh House is you in your society.

There are those friends with whom you form a strong and enduring bond. Then there are your peers, people whom you know and may call for a meet-up, but nothing more than that. You may be on the same sports team or sing in the same choir, or you may catch up with them at high school or college reunions. The types of acquaintances you have, your attitude towards these kinds of relationships and your role in these relationships is shown in your Eleventh House. Libra in the Eleventh House can reveal affection for casual friends, or a tendency to treat acquaintanceships like closer friendships. Mercury here can show that a person is most talkative with casual friends, or that they share more of their opinions with them than with other people. Having the Sun in Taurus in the Eleventh House can show a person who is popular in their community due to their calm, stable and patient nature.

The kinds of organizations you join, your specific role in those groups, and your attitude towards being in groups are revealed through the energies of this house. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you decide to do, you’re bound to be part of a group at some points in life or others. Very few goals can be fulfilled without cooperation and teamwork from others, no matter how independent you are. With Gemini in your Eleventh House, you are likely to join groups for social reasons, be the informative or talkative member in groups, or try to join multiple groups at a time. Jupiter here makes it likely for people to join especially large groups or have a positive attitude towards cooperation and teamwork. Pluto in Leo in the Eleventh House could be a person of high importance within his/her organization. Alternatively, a different person with the same combination could try to outshine the rest of the organization or become its dictator. It all depends on the rest of the chart.

More importantly, the Eleventh House shows your wishes and hopes and the ways in which you try to achieve them. We all have them. We all make and fulfill them in different ways and approach them in the ways we feel are best, or the ways to which we lean through habit. It doesn’t matter if you go for the big picture (Sagittarius), focus on the details (Virgo), or work to the bone to get them (Capricorn). Whether you’re strict about reaching them (Saturn) or give yourself a little freedom (Uranus), you carry them in your heart, just as everyone else does. Hopefully, one day, we can all use this commonality to come together and help each other reach our fullest potential.

May 25, 2020: the day that will forever be remembered as the day George Floyd lost his life at the hands of cops.

The day that systematic racism again reared its head at full force in 2020.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
