House XI represents the attempt to transcend our identity as ego, to become something greater than we are.
The main way to achieve this is by identifying ourselves with something larger than the self, be it with a circle of amigos, with a group, a system or an ideology. In this House you can see how we function as part of a system.
This House is ruled by Saturn and Uranus, since it is the natural house of Aquarius, ruled by these two planets.
From the point of view of Saturn, greater security and a stronger sense of identity are sought in this house through belonging to a group.
There is a certain attitude of exploitation here, since the rest of the world is put at the service of reinforcing or intensifying identity.
Leo – Meaning and Info
The energy and psychology of the Leo sign has as a fundamental key the discovery of the Self by the individual.
Leo is aware of his personal capacity and power, and this prompts him to want to show himself and transmit his strength abroad.
From here are derived practically all the characteristics that are associated with Leo.
For example, in the beginning, Leo will need to be the center of attention of the group, because that is where he bases his personal identification.
Simplifying, there may be two types of Leo: the egocentric who constantly depends on external recognition, or the person who knows and applies the power and ability of it inevitably influencing (but without seeking) the environment. All Leo will be between these two extreme poles.
Leo looks different, feels different. The word “I” regains a special intensity for him, as Leo’s energy is the result of a concentration of identity in oneself.
In this way, the Leo individual leaves the Cancer family with vitality and a desire to become independent.
In fact, the ruling planet of Leo is the Sun, symbol of life, enthusiasm and energy.
Psychologically Leo seeks to impress and be creative. This is what fascinates him the most: doing something that he has created, and that others value and recognize it. He emotionally handles drama like no one else, and knows how to exaggerate emotional reactions.
The problem that a person with many planets and energy in the Leo sign (Sun, Moon, Ascendant …) can have is to fall into dependence on waiting for a response or feedback from the environment – and of course it is a good one! – Every time they perform a movement.
Here Leo ceases to be master of himself and “remains imprisoned” by the image that he creates to be admired.
In this situation, Leo is at the mercy of others, in such a way that feelings of inferiority develop inside him, which he quite possibly wants to compensate through pride or arrogance (defense mechanisms).
11th House – Meaning and Info
House 11 is the place where we share with others who we are. It is there where the group energy is born, where each one of us contributes our bit to the group. It is, therefore, a transpersonal house: it does not matter the ego, the I, but what circulates between each of the individuals.
The sign and the planets located in the 11th House indicate our particular way of behaving in groups.

However, he must be very careful about his constant desire to attract attention. Excess ego can destroy his social relationships.
A weakness that is often exploited by those who call themselves friends but are not really friends.
Leo must practice humility and be aware that he is not always the most important person in a meeting.
His continuous social exposure of him generally causes him significant emotional wear. He needs to measure his energies and allocate the appropriate amount as the situation requires.
For this he must strive to find his personal balance.
Knowing yourself well will lead you to master the situations in which he is involved.
In this way, he will never look bad in public when measuring his interventions, avoiding becoming a bore from which people flee at the first change.
