What makes a House 'Dominant'? 

Dominant Houses are the houses in which the most planets or the most significant planetary configurations are located in our birth chart.  Essentially, the more going on in a house, the more 'power' that house gains in significance.

Understanding our Dominant Houses provides valuable insights into our strengths, weaknesses, desires, and motivations. They can show us and where we are likely to make the most impact in this life, and possibly the most financial gain.

11th House Dominant

Aquarius rules the 11th house.  As Aquarius is linked to the idea of 'humanity', this House is known as “the House of friends.”  The 11th House governs communal relationships, particularly those formed in clubs, societies, and organizations. People with 11th House dominance tend to be highly social, value friendships and community, and often have a strong desire to achieve their goals and aspirations through collaboration and networking.

Uranus rules Aquarius and is associated with electronic communications. Those with a dominant 11th House could do well with podcasting, or dealing with any kind of social media. 

11th house Dominance often reflects an individual's involvement in initiatives that aid or inspire progress for the mentally or physically disadvantaged, embodying a true humanitarian spirit.

This house is also linked to well-wishers and mentors who genuinely have an interest in investing in the personal growth of others, providing constructive advice and support.

If your 11th House is dominant, you likely possess a strong desire for societal improvements and have a humanitarian spirit. The energy of this house can make you future-oriented, inventive, and you likely have an innate ability to see societal trends and future possibilities long before you see them manifest in the mainstream consciousness.

Shadow Aspects

The 11th House, like any astrological house, has shadow aspects. Individuals with 11th House dominance may struggle with feeling detached from personal relationships or having high expectations of society that are difficult to fulfill. They may need to balance their broad social concerns with the need for personal connections and private life.

11th House Careers

Given its themes, the 11th House often corresponds with careers like psychologist, podcaster, philanthropist, career advisor, outreach worker, business or life coach, visiting nurse, club officer, social worker, lobbyist, parole officer, and business networking organizer. Its influence also extends to friendships with trade ties, such as multi-level marketing.


Note: It's important to remember that a dominant 11th House doesn't diminish the importance of other areas of life, represented by the remaining houses and planetary influences. The overall birth chart and the interactions between different houses and planets provide a comprehensive understanding of an individual's life and personality.
