About the 11th House
The Eleventh House contains all the things that uplift and support you.
In a perfect world, these are your friends. In medieval times this would have been your trade guild. Now we think in terms of trade associations, support groups, even spiritual communities. Charities and philanthropy too.
Therefore it’s the House of “Jupiter’s favorite things” because benevolent Jupiter also uplifts us.
