What does the 2nd House Lord in 11th House mean?

When the planet that rules over the natal 2nd house is located in the 11th house from the ascendant, it means to have this combination of the 2nd lord in the 11th house.

As a general effect of this combination, the significances of the 11th house such as gains, profits, aspirations, wishes, desires, the fulfillment of aspirations, recovery from hardships, fruits of discipline, the celebration of auspicious events, communities, friends, elder siblings, large networks, etc. are influenced by the significations of the 2nd house, such as accumulated wealth, assets, values, self-worth, family values & traditions, mental resources & talents, speech, vision, etc.

The 11th house is one of the houses of gradual growth and expansion in which the positioning of the 2nd house ruler shows the gradual expansion of the 2nd house’s significance.

Besides this, when the 2nd house ruler is in the 11th house, it means that it is in 10th place from its own sign. Herein the 10th disposition refers to the 10th Vedic house which is the most supportive quadrant house named Kendra Bhava in Vedic. Hence, it promises to be a generally auspicious combination when considering those two fundamental Vedic matters.

Growth Of Worth

Wealth and related matters are globally recognized topics of the 2nd Vedic house. It is self-explanatory as the 2nd house is named Dhana Bhava in Vedic which literally denotes wealth.

The positioning of the 2nd house ruler in the 11th house generally denotes the gradual expansion of wealth, assets, vital resources, and worth (of anything concerned).

It is not only wealth that expands during the planetary period of the 2nd house ruler in the 11th house, but all the values that are directly related to the highest goals or aspirations of the native.

The latter is relevant because the 11th house signifies fulfillment of the highest aspirations. Hence, it is self-explanatory as it also denotes the highest and truest goals of a person which he either reveals or keeps secret. The fact is that it doesn’t even matter because actions and persistence prove everything.

Speaking of which, individuals with this combination give the highest worth to values that lead to the attainment of their highest aspirations.

So the growth of worth and values are prominent during the planetary period of the 2nd house ruler in the 11th house. The growth of those values actually propels the native towards the highest aspirations and goals.

Speaking of the highest aspirations, they should be pious and good-natured. Otherwise, the highest aspirations will not manifest.

The Last Prophet [PBUH]: The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.

Sahih Al-Bukhari 1

It is also stated that one gets the results of the intentions. So when a person intends to do good, but makes mistakes and thus appears wrong for the community, they still shall get protection and rewards. Also, one will not get the fruits of pious actions with bad intent to please people for instance.

One should never be quick to judge and notice the persistence of actions instead of minor mistakes. God has a special way of transforming mistakes into blessings which reveals the reality that mistakes that are learned from lead to valuable experience. It was also revealed by God through The Last Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] that when one hides the mistakes of a person (who is also a believer), one will get their mistakes also hidden by God Almighty himself according to Hadith 36, 40 Hadith an-Nawawi.

The reason for the fact that high aspirations should be based on pious intent is hidden deeply behind the 12th house and its linkage to the 11th house via Bhavat Bhavam. More specifically, the 12th place from the 12th house is the 11th house itself.

Herein the 12th is the most important house because it signifies salvation which is consequently the most important goal of every person on earth. And pious intentions and persistence in righteous action along with increased faith in one and only God, the Creator of everything, is required to attain salvation and earn the love of God.

With the love of God attained, there is nothing (good-natured) that is impossible to achieve as the Creator will shift events to one favor who aspires to do good for all. Not that the 11th house also signifies large groups and therefore also huge influence on the masses. Because all people on earth are in constant struggle, these natives should strive to help others as well. As long as one helps another, God will aid the helping believer.

Aquarius Ascendant makes one of the best examples to illustrate this topic with 2nd house ruler Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius in the 11th house. The classical source Saravali emphasizes that Sagittarius Jupiter natives are very religious and learned regarding higher wisdom.

Jupiter as the planet of religion, righteousness, and higher wisdom in its own sign amplifies these significances in a positive direction giving these natives a naturally strong urge to integrate higher values with undertakings. Speaking of which, a planet in its own sign creates the 1st disposition (Aries) which endows them with amplified vitality, courage, and the ability to take action. All of those key traits are required successfully establish and run different undertakings. Most importantly, pious and good intentions are behind the actions of such natives during the planetary period of 2nd house ruler.

This, in turn, makes them harness corrected actions that are in accordance with righteousness making them highly prosperous. The fact that they attain authoritative status and lots of wealth is also clearly mentioned in Saravali. So ethics and correct values are the first important steps to evolving from the soul level which is a foundation for success in all other life matters.

Righteousness Expands Worth

What is even more interesting is the fact that the 9th house, which signifies righteousness, higher values, morals, ethics, and religious wisdom is also deeply linked to the 11th house, the main topic of this combination in question.

Namely, the 11th place from the 11th house is the 9th house which shows that when aspirations are strictly based on religious principles and discipline, the worth is expanded and so is the result. Not only the result, ie the highest aspiration, but also the journey becomes easier and more enjoyable.

Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels at ease and the heart feels tranquil. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and causes uneasiness in the breast, even though people have repeatedly given their legal opinion [in its favor].

Hadith 27, 40 Hadith an-Nawawi

Accordingly, one should strive as hard as possible to attain and maintain the righteous or straight path. If one increases religious wisdom, one becomes rightly guided and thus capable of remaining on the righteous path more easily.

Along with that, along with the blissful journey these natives also help others to fulfill (pious) dreams of theirs. Because God protects those who protect others, the path to ultimate fulfillment becomes easier, and the journey full of blissful moments.

When one acts diligently in accordance with righteous principles, one’s heart will be at ease which makes the process of attaining ultimate fulfillment more effective and easier. Not to mention the immense support from God that righteous act provides.

Two absolutely best examples to illustrate this effect comes from Pisces and Sagittarius Ascendant natives. For Pisces Ascendant the 2nd house ruler Mars is exalted in the 10th house Capricorn. According to classical sources such as Saravali, Capricorn Mars natives earn good social status due to their kindness and eagerness to protect or help people. Mars is the planet of action and in Capricorn, it is in great dignity reflecting their desire to commit actions that are dignified. Hence, it is naturally easy for them to attain and maintain a righteous path.

When it comes to Sagittarius Ascendant, the 2nd house ruler Saturn is also exalted in 10th house Libra. According to the classics, these natives get the authority of a king in their community due to kindness and scholarly achievements. They help others to remain on the moral path with their brilliant speech which is a great deed helping them to get a high position in society. Saturn is the planet of maturity and masses which in exaltation shows eagerness to influence and motivate masses of people towards attaining righteousness. Such great deeds return in masses of blessings by almighty God as well.

Be Ever Diligent

Coming back to worth and values, these natives value persistence and integrity of work a lot. In fact, BPHS it is mentioned that natives with this combination are ever diligent.

That is because of the 10th disposition of this combination, which signifies karma, profession, career, highest achievements, public life, etc.

The 10th house is also a significator of action which shows that one is always eager to enter into ventures and expand their activities yielding very good results. It also shows their strong willpower to expand their effort and skills which is reflected by the house of gradual growth and expansion (11th).

When combining the spiritually significant energies that were mentioned before, with this disposition, it is clear that these natives integrate higher morals and this with their work and effort.

Allah likes a worker to be perfect in his work…The employee who performs his duty to his employer and Allah in an honorable manner, Allah will give him a double reward.

Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]

Indeed, all sincere efforts are eventually rewarded. Similarly, if one does sloppy or uncareful work secretly, then losses of double amount will follow. Why it is important to conduct work ethically is that the masses rely on the results making the work of each person highly necessary to improve social welfare.

What is interesting is that diligence is valued so highly to the extent that is considered to be one of the virtues. So one must always strive to deliver results that are prepared with sincerity and integrity.

In other words, their efforts and actions are motivated by a sincere ambition to provide as good results as possible. They are very careful in their work because of being concerned about how their actions or results affect the public (10th) in general.

When an employee looks to the welfare of his employer and worship one true God, they are awarded with double rewards. One should also fulfill obligations first to God and then to ethical authority.

The Last Prophet [PBUH]

It is utterly essential to take care of the employer (and those related to their tasks) via ethical work. That is because employers once had to struggle hard to pave a way for their employees. This pain and struggle are priceless and carry a major role in shaping social structure.

Hence, employees should always strive to work as if God is overseeing them all the time because God indeed is doing so. Whether one is working in an organization or running a venture, one is still serving some greater purpose. Even in the highest position, one is serving the will of God Almighty. To be a great leader means to be a great servant (of God and truth).

Religious truth & wisdom to bless your life

Keep repenting and repeating secretly in mind: "God is enough for me and I bear witness that there is no other worthy of worship than the Almighty Creator alone" for the joy and abundance of God to flow in.
(Surat al-Baqarah 2:163)

Whoever makes the Hereafter (aims for piety & righteousness to attain salvation) his/her goal, Allah (english: God) makes his/her heart rich, and organizes his/her affairs, and the world comes to him/her whether it wants to or not.
(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2465)

And God is the most merciful and loving. The God Almighty said: By My might and majesty, I will continue to forgive them, as long as they seek My forgiveness.
(Musnad Aḥmad 11237)

And God protects the faithul more than a caring Mother protects her child.
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5999)

Do not perform idolatry, impiety, disrespect for parents. Never endanger lives (saving one life is like saving whole humanity). Do not commit theft, adultery, false witness (disregard all cruel conspiracies towards innocent believers), and do not envy.
(Surat al-An’am 6:151-153)

The Messenger of God [PBUH] used to stress charity in his sermons, and prohibit mutilation. But protect truth and believers at all costs.
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 4047)

There must be no racism, sects, tribes, or gangs amongst you, and take special care of women, and increased rewards get those who educate women especially who suffer in calamities.
(The Last Sermon, Riyad as-Salihin 278)

Holy Prophet [PBUH] raised the status of and established legal rights for women which were never present before, and protected them from harassment, and stressed duty and good treatment to mother. Also, completely prohibited injustice towards girl-children (unjust people used to get rid of them for financial reasons).

(Sahih al-Bukhari 3446, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 5, al-Baqarah 2:228)

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.
I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying while pointing his hands towards the east: The turmoil would appear from this side; verily, the turmoil would appear from this side (he repeated it thrice)(Sahih Muslim 2905e).

Muhammad [PBUH] was most akin to Jesus [PBUH], who is coming back, and the best of people will be under protection of Jesus [PBUH].
(Riyad as-Salihin 1808)

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

The 10th disposition landing in the 11th house of growth shows that the efforts and results are improving rapidly over time which yields great outcomes regarding honor, name, and wealth matters in general.

At the end of the day, increased wealth (more than required to sustain oneself) is nothing but a resource and a stepping stone to performing more important (righteous) actions in society. Such individuals are tremendously persistent in their actions which actually proves their sincerity.

The 6th house is also a powerhouse of the 11th house via Bhavat Bhavam. Namely, the 6th place from the 6th house is the 11th house itself. Herein the 6th signifies challenges and struggles. It reflects that increased struggle is a clear sign that one is on the path to fulfillment.

When things are challenging and there is opposition, it is a compliment indicating that one is moving actually towards self-improvement and betterment, provided that one is righteous and on the correct path (despite mistakes).

They are able to talk a lot, but they prove their words with solid actions and results. Accordingly, their diligence also makes their wealth expand just like their efforts. The higher and more positive effect on the community or larger groups of people, the higher the rewards. And religious intonation will further multiply it along with an inner sense of peace and bliss.

The greatest examples are still the ones previously mentioned where Mars and Saturn as 2nd house rulers are exalted. Both of these 2nd house rulers are natural malefic planets that are well designed for houses of growth because having the aggression, strength, and stamina to withstand increased challenges. Understandably, exaltation shows tremendous willpower to fulfill work after work yielding a rise in position and promotion of all kinds gradually. This eventually leads to attaining a very powerful position in society, work, or the business arena.

Another example, which is not discussed yet, comes from Cancer Ascendant, whose 2nd house ruler Sun is in the 11th house Taurus. This is generally an inauspicious combination because of the Sun being undignified in the sign of the enemy, Venus. It indicates certain weaknesses regarding worldly matters, especially wealth, and beauty, that may hinder work progress. It can be anything from too much materialism to laziness or frustration caused by the former matter.

According to personal experience, if the enmity is neutralized, the difficulties regarding worldly life can be overcome making one highly focused on goals and high aspirations. According to the classics, Taurus Sun shows having lots of difficulties and struggles, but also the unshakable determination to overcome them. Therefore, the 6th house matters, such as challenges and enemies are highly amplified in this example. This may temporarily bring these natives down but canceled enmity shows the ability to pick up and learn from experiences leading to even greater prosperity.

Regarding the 11th house Sun, classics indicate having support from the king which helps to overcome enemies. Besides this, what proves them to be highly diligent and goal-oriented is the statement that 11th house Sun natives are highly dignified and keep their word and increase effort to improve results of all kinds.

Sociable & Renowned

In a Vedic classical source, it is mentioned that individuals with this combination are especially skilled in social behavior.

There are two strong indicators for this effect. Namely, as we already know from this article that the 2nd house signifies speech or the ability to ideas into words. The 11th house, in turn, signifies large groups where lots of communication is required.

Therefore this combination shows that these natives are very eager to socialize and reach out to people in order to unite them with a common aspiration (12th).

The expansive effect of the 11th house shows the ability to learn and complement social skills gradually which makes one a great speaker in the process. They are especially renowned for their speech because of being compassionate and thus having a special ability to unite people together.

The hidden 6th house (via Bhavat Bhavam) in this combination shows that they are able to motivate all people to work together efficiently and effectively.

This effect is especially prominent for Leo Ascendant natives, whose 2nd house ruler Mercury is dignified in 11th house Gemini. Gemini is actually owned by the planet of communication Mercury which shows tremendous talent in speaking and transferring information efficiently. Mercury in its own sign shows that speech is amplified by valor and knowledge making one able to speak out confidently with influential intonation.

Multiple Wealth Sources

Having different kinds of wealth is also mentioned in a popular classical Vedic source named Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra. In other words, it can be understood that this combination indicates having wealth from multiple sources.

It is again a self-explanatory effect when considering the fact that during the planetary period of the 2nd house ruler these individuals apply increased effort to complete their work effectively. So their diligence truly pays off in a way that brings them increased opportunities to earn their livelihood.

In terms of Vedic, this effect can be explained through the effect of gradual expansion the 11th house renders. Namely, the 2nd house which signifies wealth foundation is expanded in the 11th house yielding many foundations where important matters are founded and gains generated.

It is better for one to reinvest a larger portion of it because stagnated wealth is bad for the soul and financial growth. So their nonstop momentum of mentality allows them to actually take more risks and enter into new ventures by putting their existing resources in effective places.

Expanding Mental Resourcefulness

The former paragraph also leads to an understanding that taking more risks and putting resources to use in different places requires a mentality that urges to improve mental resources gradually.

The 2nd house actually is the wealth of the 1st house, which signifies mentality. Accordingly, mental resources should be considered as primary wealth, which allows for the growth of financial security and use the latter to improve gradually instead of developing an immature approach towards materialistic matters.

Coming back to the Aquarius Ascendant example, the positioning of 2nd house ruler Jupiter in its own sign 11th house shows having a tremendously mature approach towards worldly matters because they prioritize religious wisdom, the evolution of the soul, and kindness over everything. The expansion of mental resources (wisdom) in pious directions allows making all future decisions in an as righteous manner as possible to attract success in all fields.

Most importantly, in Saravali it is written that such natives have secure (fixed) and long-lasting wealth due to their eagerness to focus on higher values first. The wealth that is secured on a pious foundation indeed provides peace of mind and gains along with lasting happiness. One always rests better in the knowledge that one has done good and earned rewards from God with that which repels fear of lack.
