More on the 6th house

This is a rather difficult combination because the 6th house carries malefic energies and brings obstacles to the significances to the 11th house.

On the other hand, the 6th and 11th houses are deeply interlinked via the Bhavat Bhavam connection. To be specific, the 6th from the 6th house is the 11th house. Accordingly, the connection between these houses via planetary lordship can bring great results, but only if the 11th ruler is dignified.

What makes this combination even more difficult is the fact that 11th lord in 6th house is in 8th from its own sign. That is because the 8th house is anther malefic house which is called Dusthana Bhava as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

Negatively, the 8th house signifies fears, sudden losses, disasters, and disruptions. Positively, it signifies sudden events that bring gains, improvements, and sudden fortune in general. It also provides exceptional intuitive intelligence that is beneficial in various deep sciences.

The 11th house belongs to the triangle of desires or Kama Trikona, the 6th house belongs to the triangle of wealth or Artha Trikona while the 8th (disposition) house belongs to the triangle of salvation or Moksha Trikona.

The connection between these house types indicates a strong desire for wealth gains, especially through service, difficult circumstances, or teamwork.

Results of 11th House Lord in 6th House

Gains Through Challenges

The 11th house is all about gains, the fulfillment of desires, and profits in general. The positioning of the 11th lord reflects the areas where the native is likely to fulfill their desires.

At the same time, the 6th house is a member of the wealth triangle and signifies service, discipline teamwork, obstacles, and challenges altogether.

Accordingly, the given combination indicates monetary gains through service and challenges. In addition to that, it also indicates gains through litigation, fights, disputes, quarrels, etc.

Additionally, as the 8th disposition suggests, this combination can also bring huge benefits and profits through the leverage of other people’s wealth (8th).

In fact, the 6th house also denotes loans and debts, which indicates gains through giving loans to others or by leveraging other people’s wealth via taking loans in order to attain big aspirations that brings the healthy return of investments included with profits.

If the 11th lord is undignified, it indicates that the native takes loans irresponsibility and later finds it hard to repay them. The increased amount of loans causes great financial obstacles and struggles.

Helpful Maternal Relatives

The 11th house signifies fulfillment of aspirations while the 6th house denotes younger siblings of the mother.

Accordingly, if this combination is well-formed, it indicates great support from uncles and aunts from the mother’s side.

They often appear suddenly with their assistance which is very helpful in realizing the aspirations and desires of the native.

Disciplined & Resistant

In other words, the gains come after much struggle, hard work, discipline, and overcoming various challenges that the malefic 6th house offer.

Whether the native is able to gain or not is highly dependent on the condition and dignity of the 11th lord in the 6th house.

If the 11th lord is dignified or well placed, it indicates that the native is very disciplined and highly resistant to stressful factors which in the first place enables them to gain through difficult environments, challenges, and circumstances.

In fact, both the 11th and 6th houses are of gradual growth and expansion. That is to say, the positioning of one growth lord in another exponentially increases the significations of both houses.

To be more specific, the gains and profits increase exponentially after becoming more disciplined, stronger, and resistant to external stress factors. In fact, what gives the native such strong traits is the experience of difficult periods and overcoming challenges.

With a dignified or strong 11th lord in the 6th house, the native is having high aspirations which makes them foresighted. With their foresight, they are able to plan their steps ahead and create a strategic plan which further supports the fulfillment of their long term aspirations.

On the contrary, an undignified 11th lord indicates that these natives fail to see the bigger picture and thus have no long term aspirations to bring positive change. Without having long term aspirations, they have no motivation. Without motive of long term aspirations, they are unable to overcome all the challenges in order to prosper.

Sudden Fulfillments

The 8th position or offset formed by this combination of 11th lord in 6th house indicates that the fulfillment of desires, gains, and profits often come unexpectedly and suddenly after having endured lots of difficult periods.

If the 11th lord is dignified, it provides the native with massive endurance which enables them to keep pushing forward even when they have not attained gains yet and at the same time have no clear idea when they are going to attain profits from their hard labor.

The dignified 11th lord gives them pure intention which is another primary reason why they are able to keep moving forward even when feeling to direct rewards from their efforts. The bigger picture and great aspirations of bringing improvements through struggles are what keeps them going.

With that being said, the native is rewarded suddenly or completely unexpectedly while diligently moving towards their goals. The sudden windfall of gains comes to them when they prove that they are not going to give up.

On the contrary, if the 11th lord is undignified in the 6th house, it makes the native vulnerable to challenges. That is to say, whenever someone is critical towards them or provide them challenges or additional tasks, they become resented and angry because their rather fragile self-awareness makes them think that they desire more for less.

As a result of resentment and vulnerability, they give up way too early or even miss many great opportunities that could actually uplift and make them stronger. They simply refuse excessive challenges or tasks offered by others. That is, only if they would not quit too soon too easily.

Extremely Cunning

The 6th house is the natural astrological domain of the 6th zodiac sign Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury. Hence, this house represents energies that signify cleverness, analytical skills, and tactical approach.

With the 11th lord of expansion, these natives become extremely clever and cunning. Whether they will ply these traits on pious pursuits depends on the dignity of the 11th lord.

A dignified 11th lord makes sure that the native attains their advantages and wealth through honest means and rightfully. Such natives have the desire to bring long term impact with their activities and when combining that desire with their honesty, they become unbreakable.

Alternatively, a weak 11th lord makes them jealous and envious. As a result of this, they develop the habit of having their eye on other wealth. They are capable of obtaining benefits and gains through sinful, unethical, and unacceptable ways.

They have increased desires for wealth, but the undignified 11th lord gives them the inclination to obtain them unfairly by applying their clever and tactical thinking in developing frauds or unethical plans on how to gain the wealth of others.

Additionally, this negative form of the combination also provides them an excessive desire for physical intimacy which they are unable to control.

Troubled By Enemies

According to classical source Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, individuals with this combination are constantly troubled by enemies.

This is no wonder with the 11th lord constantly growing the significances of the 6th house, such as enemies, disputes, quarrels, fights, etc.

In other words, whatever the native undertakes, they have enemies on their path who cause trouble and challenges to them.

As the 11th house signifies friends, communities, and large networks of people, it indicates that there are many secret enemies or ill-wishers within their friend circle or community where they are active.

Whether the native is able to deal with them efficiently, is dependent on the strength of the 11th lord.

Accordingly, if the 11th house lord is well placed in the 6th house, it indicates that the native has the valor, strength, courage, discipline, and endurance to defeat their enemies, who are improving and growing in numbers over time.

This combination also makes these natives cruel, unforgiving, and aggressive the characteristics of which they will apply while dealing with their enemies fondly. In BPHS there is also stated the same that these natives are cruel and harsh.

What is special about the 11th house, is that it signifies enemies of the enemies because of the Bhavat Bhavam connection (6th from 6th is the 11th). In other words, the placemnt of the powerhouse of the 6th house in the 6th house indicates that the antive is able to form alliance with the enemies of their enemies.

With the help of this alliance, the native is able to destroy the common enemies with their allies with easy. This is one of their clever tactics.

On the contrary, if the 11th lord is undignified, it indicates that the native deliberately create enmity with others. That is, they have hidden motivates of causing chaos in order to gain from it.

Alternatively, it also indicates that their enemies cause sudden losses and damages to the native. With this combination, the native is often overpowered by their opponents.

As per the law of karma, what the native reap, they shall sow. That is, if they get involved in unethical deeds to cause artificial chaos for their benefit, they also attract the same. Eventually, there will be sudden artificial disruptions and losses caused by clever and sinful enemies.
