Jupiter is important in determining additional outcomes because it shares common significances with the 11th house of abundant gains and fulfillment of desires.

The 11th house ruler becomes a guide to Mars in this house which determines the deeper outcomes of this given combination in question.

In addition to that, the majority of results of this combination are determined by the zodiac sign in which Mars resides in the 11th house.

Results of Mars in 11th House

Mars as the natural malefic planet in the the house of growth or Upachaya is considered auspicious in general as it pushes and motivates to perform better gradually regardless of the possible obstacles on the way.

Dominant & Straightforward Speech

The aspect of Mars upon the 2nd house (of speech and face) produces a dominant, competent, commanding, and straightforward style of speech with strict intonation of voice. If Mars is well-placed in favorable sign and associated with friendly planets, the given style of speech is beneficial.

A damaged (ill-placed) Mars, however, indicate having intimidating intonation of speech and using it immorally to threaten and manipulate others.

Valorous & Victorious

A well-placed Mars in the considered house indicates being victorious over enemies – Mars aspects the 6th house of enemies from the 11th house. This combination produces a competent and courageous warrior.

If Mars is ill-placed, it indicates having obstacles and obstructions caused by the enemies.

Goal Oriented & Determined

The 11th house denotes aspirations and the positioning of the planet of actions and will-power Mars in the considered house produces a highly determined and goal oriented person. This favorable trait promotes becoming successful by achieving large goals.

If Mars is well-placed in the favorable sign of the considered house, it blesses with success in ventures with substantial profits. The favorable effects are further supported and amplified by favorably placed 11th house lord.

Alternatively, if Mars is ill-placed (debilitated, in inimical sign, or associated with the inimical planet) in the 11th house, it indicates severe hurdles and obstacles that hinder the process of achieving goals.

If the 11th house lord is also ill-placed and offers no support, then the goals and aspirations are unattainable. However, if the 11th house lord is strong and well-placed while Mars is ill-placed (debilitated or in inimical sign), it indicates pursuing goals using mean, sinful, and unethical methods.

Competitive & Ambitious Friend Circle

The 11th house signifies friends, contacts, and circles. The positioning of Mars in the given house gives its (Martian) characteristics to friends, which makes them equally ambitious and competitive. A well-placed Mars indicates having faithful friends and contacts who prove to be helpful by various means. It also indicates having a great personality and being equally helpful to others.

Alternatively, ill-placed Mars in the considered house indicates being very selfish, violent, and aggressive while pursuing goals. This trait deprives of the support from the friend/contact circles.

Great Team Players

People with Mars in the 11th house are great socializers and motivators within their circles. The eleventh house carries the energies of humble and humanitarian zodiac sign Aquarius in which Mars indicates being compassionate towards large groups of people.

If the condition of Mars is favorable in the considered house, it indicates being able to achieve great success in common foundations of pious goals with friends and associations.

Abundant Wealth Gains

A well-placed Mars in the 11th house (of fulfilled desires, aspirations, gains and profits) blesses with abundant wealth gains. It is an especially fortunate position for a favorably placed Mars due to its harmonious 4th aspect (protects and supports what it aspects) upon the 2nd house of wealth, the combination of which makes the wealth grow exponentially.

The transforming 8th aspect of Mars upon the 6th house indicates being fortunate regarding loans – it indicates wise usage of loans for supporting larger investments and transforming loans into greater profits. The balancing 7th aspect upon the 5th house blesses with luck in speculation and stock markets, especially markets related to forex and real-estate.

The ill-placement of Mars indicates hurdles and obstacles in gaining wealth. As Mars is also aspecting the 6th house (loans) it indicates having a heavy burden of loans, which is the main obstacle in earning profits. Additionally, ill-placement of Mars indicates losses through speculation. If the 11th house lord is also ill-placed, it indicates more expenditures than gains at some periods in life.
