This placement engenders an understanding of social networking and community as mostly a tool that can be used to achieve a common goal or an agenda of one’s own. Because of this, Saturn in the 11th house can be perceived as scheming and manipulative and sometimes display a misuse of power and influence.

In the 11th house, Saturn brings clarity and seeks to call others out for being dishonest or out of touch with reality. Additionally, people with this placement are bound to be quite trustworthy and honorable friends. Even if they manage to attract a lot of popularity, they are shrewd judges of character who understand that not everyone has their best interests at heart. They maintain a certain detachment and  demeanor that could be described as personable yet professional. Here’s a breakdown of Saturn in the 11th house and its significance in both the natal chart and as a Transit.

The 11th House:

The 11th house in astrology is the house of friendship, hope and aspirations. It is associated with community, activism and social change. Ruled by the sign of Aquarius and the planet Uranus, This house represents our relation to others on a wider scale than that of the 7th house which pertains to more personal one-on-one relationships. The type of planets that happen to reside in this house and the angles they form will indicate the nature of your social life and how you relate with others. Do you enjoy a large circle of friends, a smaller tight knit group, or almost no friends at all? It can also indicate what type of groups and organizations you are drawn to and would find camaraderie in.

The Planet Saturn:

In astrology, Saturn is described as the great teacher. It is counted as one of the personal planets but mostly with regard to how it is aspected with other, faster moving personal planets like Mars and Venus. Saturn has a slow orbit and because it takes around 30 years to complete one trip through all 12 signs, it will take roughly 3 years to pass through a single sign or house. Therefore, its influence can represent a significant period of growth and maturity within whatever house it passes through. 

Saturn represents grounded reality and its constraints. This contrasts sharply with the unconstrained fantasy world that Neptune indulges. Furthermore, Saturn is the planet of structure, discipline, law and order, rules, fears, authority and suspicion. Saturn represents restriction while Jupiter represents expansion. Saturn is also a malefic planet along with Mars which means these planets can sometimes attract bad luck and misfortune depending on where and how they are placed.
