North Node in the 11th house

Having your North Node in the 11th house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 5th house. This natal placement of the North Node indicates a heavy emphasis on matters concerning one’s friends, while also groups and organizations of which the native is a member. In addition, the axis shows that your life lesson also involves your attitude towards your love life and affairs, while also children and your relations with them. In addition, it poses dilemmas between your private and public life.

As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 11th house must focus on his friendship circles. As the 11th house is the realm of Aquarius and Uranus, this placement indicates a need to bind to some social structure that promotes progress through the unity of its members. Thus being in any type of social group can help the chart owner develop towards his karmic path. The North Node placed here is all about cooperation, sharing and even volunteering for the prosperity of the community. Through connecting with people who share similar interests, the native will achieve happiness, while also receive a lot of help from them – both in the material and the emotional spheres.

Yet, most of the times following our North Node path is not the easiest thing to choose. Most people usually feel quite uncomfortable about the matters of the house where the North Node is located. This is because during previous lifetimes we have gathered a lot of experience concerning the South Node house matters. Indeed, we are a lot more acquainted with the roads we have already walked; yet life requires from us to abandon the safety of known patterns and face development through unknown areas. Many people who have their North Node in the 11th house can feel shy or unsure about becoming a member of a group.

For fulfilling our cause, the North Node strengthens everything it touches. Of course, a lot of fears can be present concerning the direction it indicates, as it is a terra incognita yet to be discovered. Yet, the North Node is quite beneficial when in conjunction with any planet present in the house, even if it is a “malefic”. Naturally, a “malefic” planet adversely aspected will still remain a rather harsh lesson to learn. Spiritual growth will be eventually reached; even if it comes through difficulties. But generally expect the North Node of the Moon to bless you with an expansion of the positive traits of any planet nearby. In case that it conjuncts Jupiter or Venus, the experiences that one will receive through his social life will be extremely beneficial.

The 11th house is also ruling one’s dreams and hopes, especially the big ones. This placement can indicate that the native is destined to chase his wild dreams, and probably even succeed in making them reality. In addition, this house is also connected with one-time windfalls of money, so in case that the North Node is linked to the planet that rules financial houses it can bring good unexpected gains. In addition, the North Node in the 11th house can be a positive indicator of financial help through friends.

The 11th/5th house Lunar Node axis brings the dilemmas “Friends or love”, “time with groups of people with children or time with your children”, “indulge in activities with masses or develop your creative side”. The South Node’s placement indicates that the native during his previous incarnation had 5th house matters as the center of his existence. He probably had strong experiences concerning love, had children, and a lot of fun. In addition, he may have been a gambler, or generally liked to risk and speculate – sometimes without the necessary seriousness. The same types of activities may seem appealing for him in this incarnation too.

Yet, this is quite the wrong thing to do. His karmic path is requiring a more serious approach; he will face the need to take care of a social group and not only of his own fun and his dearest people. The 11th house demands a dissolution of one’s ego, in order to create a hyper-organism through merging with other people. Your happiness will be depending on the overall happiness of your friends and circles, so you should invest your energy towards them instead of directly into your own prosperity. In such a way, you will avoid a short-circuit and the care and love you invest will be returning refreshed back to you.

A North Node in the 11th house requires us to abandon irresponsible activities such as gambling. The chart owner should diminish partying a little bit, as well as drinking and spending time in unproductive ways. Instead, he should seek fun through 11th house activities, which can definitely provide it also as they involve other people.

When you activate your eleventh house and balance the karmic axis between the two Nodes, you will be able again to seek development in the fifth house related matters. So, if flirting around, having children, or generally goofing around attracts you, you can safely do it when the 11th house dues are paid. It is all about what priorities we set in our life. By developing your 5th house, you are actually opening the 11th house gates too. You will have learned the lesson of cooperation, and made some steps towards wisdom through seriousness. Only then you will be able to use your South Node in a proper way, this time consciously.

Sounds like I have an issue here, NN in 11th house, BUT :
Mars in the 11th : Contentions among friends ; unsatisfactory relations with others in social life. Friends lead the native into extravagance or some form of dissipation.
Saturn in the 11th : False and deceitful friends. The native is frequently ruined by them; hopes are deceived, ambitions frustrated.
So I need to join a social group, just to be ruined by them… that 11th house really doesn’t look good for me !


Ha ha ! Same here, Mars, Saturn, Sun and Moon ! I always felt all people belong to the same world, but never managed to join a group, always feeling rejected for my differences, origins, lack of wealth, or whatever… except for a few NPD’s who want to manipulate you and are starving for fresh narcissist supply after crushing their previous victim !

This is a great article. However, in my case my chart is turned 180 degrees. Meaning my North node is indeed in the 11th house along with Ceres, Juno, and Vesta but in Leo.
While my Saturn, and South node lie in Aquarius in the 5th house.
So I’m not sure how this completely applies to me.
How does this pan out in terms of my lifes work.


I have my North Node in Libra, in the 11th house, but it was Retrograde when I was born, what does this mean? I cannot find any information with this exact breakdown.
