Namely, the 6th house form the 6th is the 11th house itself. Now that the 6th ruler is in 11th house, it means it is in its own powerhouse which indicates that both houses share energies and mutual support harmoniously which can confer positive results as long as he 6th ruler is in good dignity and well aspected in the 11th house.

Furthermore, both, the 6th and 11th houses are the houses of expansion and gradual growth and belong to the house group of Upachaya Bhava for the same reason.

Results of 6th House Lord in 11th House

Materialistic Desires

As the 6th belongs to the triangle of wealth and 11th to the triangle of desires, it indicates that the natives are excessively materialistic.

As the maleic 6th ruler is involved, it indicates that the native is very aggressive but cunning. It means that these natives are ready to do whatever it takes to fulfill their goals, dreams, and obtain a great number of profits.

As the 6th house also belongs to quarrels, cruelty, and merciless, it indicates that these natives are capable of achieving their goals in an aggressive manner using rough tactics.

Moreover, as the 6th ruler gives a direct aspect upon the 5th house, it combines their cunning and aggressive nature with intelligence. Hence, they are not only quarrelsome, ambitious, and cunning but also very intelligent which helps them to use clever tactics in order to fulfill their desires.

However, the native is mentally strong and durable, which indicates that they are able to take great advantage of their enemies, before destroying them. They are able to redirect their opposition towards their opponents in a clever manner and ensure benefits in the process.

Both of the houses are houses of growth which indicate that their monetary situation is improving over time. With that being said, it is likely that at the beginning, the financial situation is very difficult.

Enemies & Friends

With the 6th ruler of opposition in the 11th house of social circles, it indicates that people with this combination have a lot of enmity within their contacts, friends, and community.

It also reflects the great amount of jealousy from friends towards the native.

However, as the given lord is in its own powerhouse, it indicates benefits from this enmity.

It can be in the form of temporary cooperation or agreements after disputes. In other words, the native is able to make agreements even with their enemies in order to fulfill some mutual goal.

Other than that, this combination is extremely beneficial to work together with friends and members from the community.

Elder Siblings

The 11th house carries the significance of elder siblings. The positioning of the malefic 6th ruler in this house would normally cause enmity with elder siblings.

However, as the 6th ruler is harmoniously deposited in its powerhouse, the 11th house, it indicates good cooperation with elder siblings that ensure great teamwork and also success in undertakings.

This combination also reflects the ability of people with this combination to find compromises and resolve quarrels with siblings.

Hence, they are able to work well together and also earn well with mutual support.

On the contrary, the only thing that can ruin this harmony with siblings is the damage to the 6th lord in the 11th house. If that is the case, then there will be unsolvable issues, quarrels, and disputes between the natives and siblings.

It also helps that the natives and siblings try to dominate and cunningly cause damage to each other in the process.

Gains Through Enemies

One of the first things mentioned in the classical source of Vedic astrology, BPHS, is that people with this combination earn wealth and monetary gains through opponents.

This effect can be explained by various indications as per sidereal Vedic astrology. To begin with, the 6th house signifies enemies. Secondly, the 6th house belongs to the triangle of wealth. Thirdly, the 11th house signifies gains and profits.

When the rule of Bhavat Bhavam or powerhouse technique is taken into consideration, it indicates earning wealth through enemies or with the help of friends, community, or social circles.

For optimal results, the 6th ruler should be well placed, in good dignity, and well supported by the holistic chart.

Cunning & Clever

Briefly, if the 6th lord is well-placed in the 11th house, it indicates that the native is very competitive and cunning and is able to exploit enemies in order to gain profits.

This is the most powerful effect of this Bhavat Bhavam connection-combination that these natives can easily overlook the criticism and opposition they receive. Instead of immediately crushing opposition, they learn from the words of their opponents in a smart way.

As a result, they gain a lot of experience and wisdom in the process that helps them in the longs run.

Moreover, their cleverness of the 6th is combined with the intelligence and wisdom of the 5th house, which is aspected by the 6th ruler in the 11th house.

Hence, this combination indicates that these natives are able to take advantage of their opponents or competitors in order to gain profits. In other words, they can relentlessly step on their competitors in order to prosper themselves further, and without any sense of guilt.

They are also capable of destroying the reputation of the opponents in order to benefit themselves.

Alternatively, if this combination is ill-formed, it indicates a lot of disputes with opponents that are hard to resolve. As a result, there is increased enmity which brings too many challenges, obstacles, and opposition to the native which makes it hard for them to fight the opposition.

It also indicates a lack of will-power or simply being too hesitant. This makes their enemies more powerful and indicates that opponents will take advantage of the native.

Religious truth & wisdom to bless your life

(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.

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.

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]

Virtuous & Famous

The same classical source also states that people with this combination are virtuous, authoritative, valorous, and achieves great fame and reputation.

The reason for this effect is hidden behind the fact that the 6th ruler casts a direct aspect upon the 5th house form the 11th house.

The 5th house as being a natural home of the fiery zodiac sign Leo, carries the significance of fame, authority, and reputation.

Besides that, the 5th belongs to the triangle of righteousness which reflects their ability to be virtuous. For this effect, the 6th ruler should be in good dignity in the 11th house.

It also indicates that natives with this combination become celebrated (11th significance) and well known in their field of activity mostly because of their intelligence, righteousness, and discipline.

That is to say, they are capable of achieving great fame and authority within their friends or community.

On the contrary, if the combination is negatively formed, that is, the 6th ruler is weak and in bad dignity, it indicates a lack of purity in the soul, which causes a lack of righteousness and virtuous character traits. This also means that the native is selfishly cunning and able to take immoral or even illegal measures in order to benefit themselves.

This, of course, damages their reputation, name, and fame to a great extent as well. Eventually, it causes losses because of the increasing amount of enemies due to their false character.

Alternatively, this can also indicate that the native is involved in criminal activities with the members of the bad community through which the native gains, and then loses eventually.

Earns Through Service

The 6th house denotes service, and the given lord in the 11th house of profits indicates gains from service-related activities.

In fact, these natives are clever and know extremely well how to serve and satisfy the necessities of their clientele. This makes them extremely great and efficient servants.

If this combination is well placed, their service-related activity shapes their dignity, name, and fame in a positive way ensuring much recognition from community.

With that being said, while most of the time they are disrespected by jealous friends, they never let these comments of degradation distract them. That makes them mentally very strong and durable. This makes them perfectly suitable for service that includes a hard and challenging environment where a lot of resistance to panic and pressure is required.

Progeny Issues

In BPHS it is also mentioned about having a lack of happiness from progeny.

This effect is clearly caused by the aspect of a malefic 6th ruler upon the 5th house of progeny.

Namely, the malefic influence manifests in the form of pregnancy issues or enmity with progeny, if this combination if not well placed. It may also cause fertility issues.

However, if the 6th ruler is in goo dignity, the evil effects are nullified and the native may have very clever, competitive, and powerfully dynamic children.

The mentioned effects manifest in specific periods and the intensity of them depends on planetary strength level and many other factors.

  • Hello Martin, Does the 6th lord draw upon the intelligence from the 5th by aspecting it? An aspecting planet influences the aspected house not the other way around, am I correct? I am referring to a statement in “Cunning and Clever” which states the 6th lord from the 11th draws upon the intelligence due to aspecting the 5th. Is it possible to send the replies to my email?

    • Hello Sundar

      Yes, correct. The 6th lord influences the 5th house through aspect. In mundane words, it means that their wisdom becomes influenced by the cleverness and competitiveness of the 6th lord.

  • Hey Martin!
    Amazing analysis, specially with the backdrop of BPHS.
    Thank you.
    Just curious if the effects will be amplified if the fifth lord joins the sixth lord in the eleventh house.
    (In this case it will form a Shankh yog too)
    Your take on this please.

    • Hello Sangeet and thank you for your feedback!

      The first thing to do is to blend the effects of this combination and 5th lord in 11th house. Both will manifest regarding their initial results in timeline indicated by dasha system.

      Also, for both lords, it will indicate co-results because of conjunction. Now it depends on planetary relationships and ten (plus) other things so it is not a straightforward answer.

      Best wishes

  • Hello Martin,

    ASC is Aries. Mercury in the 11th house.

    With this information, can I say that the 6th lord is in the 11th house?

    How can I know that if i have positive aspects or not?

    My DoB: 19 March 1986 08:03am Izmir Turkey

    Thank you.

    • Hello

      Yes, Mercury is the 6th house ruler in your 11th house. It is also the 3rd house ruler in the 11th house, so make sure to discover another article too. Mercury is neutral towards Saturn naturally. Hence, results depend highly on the dignity of Saturn. Let me know where sidereal Saturn is so I can give a final assessment of the dignity of Mercury in your personal chart.
