Today, 6th house lord sitting in 11th 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.
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
One thing to remember here is that 11th house 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.
Now, what does it mean to have 6th house lord sitting in 11th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 6th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 11th house.
Now, what is the impact of having 6th house lord sitting in 11th house?
Its generic interpretation is that your life's obstacles are becoming a hindrance in your gains. It means whenever person tries to gain anything in life, he gets into hindrances and obstacles. Either he faces enemies or diseases during his attempt of gains. It doesn't mean he won't gain anything in life because there are other houses and other planets too in chart. It just means he has to put double effort to make any gains. It also means that person's gains are getting spent in diseases or clearing obstacles. It sounds depressing but we all have such expenses in life. Also, 6th house lord is now 6 houses away from its place, so it is kind of Bhavat Bhavam position for 6th house. So, that energy of 6th house is magnified here in 11th house. At the same time, it shows someone's daily routine work is in large organization and big social groups.
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 11th house lord as 6th house lord is going in 11th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 11th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in 11th house in Capricorn. It shows someone working in Govt or Private Large Organisation and dealing with obstacles in routine life. As Sun is in enemy's sign of Capricorn, which represents hard work and authority, it shows that person has to work very hard to gain any authority in life. After winning over obstacles only, they will be able to gain. There is no shortcut. As Sun is in enemy sign, authority doesn't come easily in life.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 11th house in Sagittarius Sign. It shows a person who is highly learned and has great wisdom to deal with all the obstacles and disputes of life. They like to be part of big religious movements like ISKCON and Missionaries and serve the poor and under privileged through these institution. They like to take care of ill and poor people and give them hope in life through their high wisdom.
Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 11th house in Virgo. This shows a person of high will power and determination, who goes on to deal with all the obstacles and disputes of life. In a way, this can show a Doctor too as Virgo is sign of healing and Mars is one who works with tools and equipment. At the same time, as Mars is in enemy sign, success and gains are seen in 2nd half of life. They need to use all their will power and determination to win over obstacles. Nothing will come easy and that's why Mars is there to help them.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 11th house in Aries sign. This is much better placement as Mars is in own sign. Hence, person will have great courage to fight against all the obstacles and disputes and will easily win over them. Here, gains may come little easier but not readily available as Mars still rules a Dushthana and 11th house gives results in 30s. But one thing is sure that person will be victorious. Both position of Mars can show someone working in defense, police and security for large organizations.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 11th house in Scorpio. This person's daily routine is all about communications and counselling people regarding obstacles and disputes in life. They may be interested in counselling people who are going through trauma or chaotic situations in life. If they are working for large organizations then communications are going to be a huge part of their daily work routine. Their gains will go through a transformation, means they may need to change their work quite a few times.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 11th house in Aquarius. This is more a situation of someone working in Corporate World or Large Organization as 11th house and Aquarius both represent Large Organizations. They are very clever and almost cunning in their approach of work. They are perfectionist when it comes to their work and communications. They are also very practical about their gains. Communications are huge part of their work and they deal with all the obstacles through their communications.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 11th house in Libra sign. As Venus is in own sign, things are again much better. These people love to serve others. They become part of organizations which work for taking care of poor and under privileged people. Their gains are coming from such service. They have natural love towards pets and other animals. Illness wise, they should be careful about an disease related with Kidney and Sugar. They will win over obstacles through their service and devotion.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 11th house in Pisces, where it is exalted. This is the best position among all. Exalted Venus means unconditional love and service towards others, These people are best to join any organization which is into service of others. For them, service to others takes the shape of devotion to God. What to say when person is not treating an obstacle like an obstacle but saying that it is an opportunity to serve and guide others who are bringing obstacles. Purely Spiritual view towards service and gains.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 11th house in Taurus Sign. This person may be working in large organization in any field related with Finance. This shows a very rich person as Jupiter expands the house it sits in. So, here gains/income is expanded. This person brings all his higher knowledge and wisdom of Sagittarius from 6th house and uses it in dealing with disputes/obstacles to gain a higher reward in 11th house. This also shows gains from elder siblings or teachers but as always 11th house will start giving result in 30s.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 11th house in Leo. This is much better position as Jupiter is in friendly sign. Jupiter in Leo simply means a Teacher or Guru in Authority. So, these people are highly learned and spiritual beings, who bring all their knowledge to 11th house for higher purpose of benefiting the mankind. With their wisdom, they choose to guide others and hence they reach status of an Authoritative Teacher. Famous Spiritual Gurus and Guides can be seen from this position. Otherwise also, if they are working in Corporate etc. they will be in higher position of guiding others or being mentor of others.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 11th house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) shows that this person had hard time earning the money in early life. Their earnings come really slow earlier but it gradually improves. Money doesn't come easy in life when Saturn is involved. They have to work their ass-off to gain in any field. They may not have big network circle or elder siblings, or even if they have, they will never gain benefit out of them. As always, things get better with Saturn from 30s. Career-wise, they can be in any position of high status in large organizations,Law or Govt. For Virgo Ascendants, they can be in health care also.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 11th house in Cancer then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Cancer in 11th house will transform Rahu as Moon as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Moon in 11th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Cancer in 11th house shows a person who has extreme behaviors on display. Like, when they are sad, they will cry whole day and when they are happy, they will give party to the whole town. It shows someone working in Large Organization in Foreign Lands and have a foreign source of income. If not so, then there will always be an illusion about his income as to from where he earns. It means they can be involved in cheating people for money.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 11th house in Aries 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 working in corporate :). They are least bothered about money and hence universe blesses them with lots of money as we always get that thing in abundance which we least desire. It suggests that person has no desire to gain wealth and hence he gets lots of wealth. If Ketu is in Ashwini Nakshatra, then there are high chances of person becoming a Surgeon. If it is in Aries but in other Nakshatras, then also person can at least become a Physician.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
