A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw
at him or her. David Brinkley

We live in the world of succ ess worshippers. In Kalyuga the predominant tendenc y of all ambitious
people is to suc c eed and suc ceed ONLY. The end is important for them, whatever may be the
means adopted to ac hieve suc cess. The importanc e of 11th House cannot be over emphasised in
Kalyug where the only barometer of suc cess is money! 11th House is the house of gains, of
recognition and awards.

As per Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra, an auspic ious 11th house makes a person happy at all times.
11th house indic ates the fructific ation of efforts of a person. A person is doomed to a lifetime of
struggle and very limited gains if the 11th house does not show promise. The pivot around whic h
suc cess revolves in a horosc ope is 11th lord and the 11th house. When we assess the horosc ope
of suc cessful people, we find that all of them have a strong 11th House and 9th house (11th from
11th house).

Assessment of Success in a Horoscope

After assessing the strength of Lagna, promise of other bhavas in the horosc ope and various
yogas present in the horosc ope, we assess the potential to suc c eed by the following:

1. See the placement of 11th Lord.

-- 11th lord in Kendra or Trikona is good
-- 11th lord in own house is good
-- Exalted 11th lord is exc ellent
-- 11th lord in 6th house or 8th house is not good

2. Number of planets connected to the 11th house

Do not fail to notice a c onc entration of planets in the 11th house or assoc iated with the 11th
lord. The more the number of planets connec ted to the 11th house/lord, the more is the possibility
of material suc cess of that person.

How do we c ount the number of planets c onnected

to the 11th house/lord? Let’s do it in the horosc ope
of famous American builder Kirk Kerkorian. The 11th
house has sign Gemini. See the planets plac ed in the
11th house. Venus and Ketu are plac ed there. Now
see the planets aspec ting the 11th house. In this
horosc ope, Moon and Rahu are aspecting the 11
house. Now see the number of planets connec ted to
the lord of the 11th House – Merc ury (Conjunc tion,
aspec t, exchange). In this horosc ope, Merc ury is
plac ed in the 10th house and is conjunc t with Sun, Jupiter, and Mars. So we find that 8 planets
are connec ted to the 11th house and 11th lord. This c learly foretells great succ ess for the person
as most dashas of his life will have a c onnec tion with 11th house. However, such a person can be
very greedy and may devote all his energies in ac cumulating material things, money, and wealth.… 1/3
3. Confirmation from Navamsha (D-9) Confirm the position of the 11th house and the 11th lord
from Navamsha (D-9). As you c an see from the table below, the promise of D1 is c onfirmed in D9
for succ essful people.

4. Number of Ashtakvarga points between 10th house

and 11th house
The Ashtakvarga points of 10th and 11th houses from
Lagna, Moon and Sun indic ate how muc h a person will be
rewarded for his efforts. If the points of 11th house are
more than the 10th house the person will be suitably
rewarded for his efforts.

5. Connection between the 11th lord and the 2nd lord

The connec tion between 11th house (earning) and the 2nd
house (wealth) shows the capac ity to retain the money
earned. See if the 2nd and 11th lords are c onnected, in
kendras from each other or in exc hange.

6. Raj Yogas and Dhan Yogas Make full analysis of Raj Yogas and Dhan Yogas present in
the horosc ope.

7. Dasha Sequence The dasha sequenc e at the right time in life is the key to ac hieving suc cess
and ac c laim.

Warning Our Guru, Shri K.N. Rao always emphasizes that in the c hanging times, what is given in
the astrologic al c lassic s even if not interpolated have to be interpreted liberally and not

Some other interesting points about the 11th

Relation between Lagna and 11th house
The 11th Lord is neutral or enemy of the Lagna lord for eac h

Exaltation and Debilitation For each Lagna, the house

where 11th lord exalts and debilitates indic ates the
inc linations of that lagna. For Gemini and Pisces Lagna, 11th
Lord exalts in the 8th house. (examples are Einstein and
Morarji Desai). For Aquarius Lagna, the 11th Lord exalts in
the 6th house indicating suc cess after struggle (example is
Amitabh Bac hc han). For Aries and Libra Lagna it exalts in
the 7th house of spouse and partnership. For Canc er and
Virgo Lagna it exalts in the 9th house of father and luc k. In c ase of Leo and Aquarius Lagna, 2nd
and 11th lords are the same.… 2/3
