Today, 11th house lord sitting in 6th house.
So first of all, let's see what 6th house and 11th house represent -
6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc. One thing to remember here is that it is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
11th house represents Elder Siblings, Large Organizations, Huge Structures, Higher Goals and Purposes for the Universe, Network Circle, Entrepreneurship, Friends, Gains, Income and Earnings etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 11th house lord sitting in 6th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 11th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 6th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 11th house lord sitting in 6th house?
This position basically indicates that your earning/income is coming through dealing with obstacles, disputes and diseases. It means, it is a strong indication towards someone in Legal or Medical Field. This also shows someone earning through routine jobs, and service to people. If malefic planets are involved in bad dignity, then it shows that person's hopes and desires may be fulfilled with facing lots of obstacles and hurdles. This also shows someone involved in social service or taking care of Animals. Now, 11th lord is going 8 places from itself. As 8th house relates to sudden ups/downs, it shows that person will have sudden ups/downs in his income based on involvement of benefic/malefic planet and their dignity. Basically, it is a good position to earn through Legal, Medical, Service etc.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 6th house lord as 11th house lord is going in 6th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.

So, they earn while working in a very tough daily work life. This might also indicate a Surgeon as Scorpio is sign of Surgery. At the same time, they are very dominating towards their colleagues which may be troublesome. So, they may take care of that. Overall, a very strong-willed person with dominating instinct.
Capricorn Ascendant - Now if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 6th house in Gemini sign. This position gives an indication towards profession of Lawyer. As 6th house is disputes and litigation, Gemini is sign of Communication & Counselling and Mars is a fighter. So, here Mars fights disputes through his communications. So, this shows a Counselor, Lawyer or Activist, like an RTI Activist, who fights to resolve disputes or remove obstacles from other's life. Person may have a very harsh/direct speech.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Mercury rules 11th & 2nd houses and sits in 6th house in Capricorn. This is another position of a Counselor or a Lawyer or someone working in field of Communication. His work in such field will bring him Authority in this world. As Capricorn is sign of Law & Order & Mercury is a natural counselor, Lawyer is a big possibility. Here, Capricorn is also a sign of Govt, so they may be a Public Prosecutor.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, then Mercury rules 8th and 11th house and sits in 6th house in Aries. Similar results can be seen here too with addition that this person may also be working as counselor for people facing trauma in their lives. They may be working as rights activists and someone who resolves people problems through their written/oral communications. Here again, person may have a very harsh/direct speech.
Venus - Venus also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 11th & 4th house and sits in 6th house in Sagittarius sign. As Venus is all about Service and Devotion and 6th house relates to Social Service, these people will work in serving under privileged people or Animals. As Venus is in Sagittarius, a sign of higher education, they will utilize their higher education in the field of service to people. As Venus is also a planet related with Teachers, this shows someone is in Teaching. They have natural love towards higher education and utilize the same for serving others. Even in relations, they are more attracted towards person who is learned than good looking.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 6th house in Taurus. This shows a person completely dedicated towards Service of people and earn from there, as Venus is in its own sign. Taurus is sign of wealth and assets, so these people may be earning lots of wealth through service. Alternatively, they may be working under Finance related field in their daily routine work. Venus in 6th house gives diseases related to Sugar or Kidney, so they may be taking care of these things.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 11th & 2nd house and sits in 6th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This can show both Legal and Medical Career. Jupiter represents the one who writes the Law, so this can make someone a Lawyer. Cancer represents taking care of people and Jupiter represents Biology, so this position can also give someone a Career in Medicine. Final call can only be made after looking at whole chart. What this also does is that person gains from disputes or illness. Like, someone filed a case against you but couldn't prove anything and in the end, court awarded damages to you.Or you got some illness and insurance companies paid your all expenses. They should be careful about excessive fat.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules 8th & 11th house and sits in 6th house in Libra. This shows more a Lawyer or Counselor as Jupiter rules 8th house too. It shows someone earning from counselling people who are living in traumatic situations. It also shows you are gaining knowledge and money from your enemies. You might be working as guide or mentor to people who are under-privileged and socially backwards and your whole effort will be to bring things in Society to a balance. Other health related things will be similar as above.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 11th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Pisces/Aries Ascendants respectively) again shows a person who is in Health-Care field or Law field. As Saturn itself represents illness and 6th house is diseases too, Saturn in 6th house normally creates a doctor. Another Career it can give is Lawyer if it gets connected with 10th house along with 6th house. If Saturn is in Virgo for Aries Ascendant then certainly a great career in Law as Virgo represents same things as 6th house represents. This can even make a person a Judge. Saturn in 6th house is one of best placement for Saturn as it impacts all the Dushthana Houses, i.e. 6th, 8th and 12th house and hence limits the results of these houses. For Aries Ascendant, Saturn rules 10th house with Aquarius sign, so it gives a Career in Large Organizations with routine repetitive jobs. .
Rahu - If Rahu is 11th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 6th house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Virgo in 6th house basically shows a highly, analytical, critical and detailed oriented person. They are perfect perfectionist. Work Environment or Colleagues may be Foreign. They may be working for Foreign Companies. When they have illnesses, they have the most unusual illnesses.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 11th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the concept of as to where he is serving. It means these people are blind as to where they are working, if they are getting enough return/salary/bonus for their work. They just want to mechanically work without any thought of getting into office politics and other things. Hence, it so happens that they may not get their deserving dues in jobs. It also separates them from concepts of Competition. They are the last people who want to get into any dispute. They live a healthy life, as they are also separated from Diseases. As Ketu is in Gemini, they are not too communicative, especially at their work place. .
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
