So first of all, let's see what 1st house/Ascendant and 11th house represent -
1st house/Ascendant is your self, physique, personality, overall health, life path and head in human body 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 4th 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 1st house lord in 11th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 1st house/Ascendant of your horoscope is sitting in the 11th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 1st house lord in 11th house?
Its generic interpretation is that person's focus through-out life is on matters related with Earning, Gains, Large Organisation, Friends, Elder Siblings etc. It doesn't mean someone is greedy, it just means someone is getting easy gains from these sources. It means someone who is highly ambitious and want to make a big name for himself and not content with a normal time based pay checks. He wants to rise higher and higher in his life.
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 1st 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 Ascendant Lord in 11th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Leo Ascendant chart and Sun sits in the 11th house in the sign of Gemini. It shows a person who gains a lot from his father and other people of authority. They are very communicative with their friends and network circles. It shows someone who has Career in Large Organisations and reach the level of authority on the basis of communications.
Moon - So it is Cancer Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 1st house and sits in 11th house in Taurus, where it is exalted. It shows great gains in life through Mother and Motherly Figures. As 11th house is also a house of Entrepreneurship, it shows someone who is in business of Baby-Care or Children related things. It also shows someone running a restaurant. But as it is exalted in Taurus, it shows huge gains from Mother and Network Circles. A real good position.
Mars - Mars can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - So if it is Aries Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Aquarius sign. Here, Mars is a bit confused about working in Large Organisations and all as it is no more an exalted Mars. It is in the sign of Aquarius where it finds itself confused for the simple reason that Mars is a soldier who wants to take action and he is told to make friends and increase network circle. So, the karmic lesson for Mars to learn from here is that working in Large Organizations won't work for you, you need to take your own action and become an Entrepreneur.
Scorpio Ascendant - Now if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 11th house in Virgo sign. Again, an average position of Mars. Another such position where person will realize after initial struggle in Corporate World that they are better as Entrepreneurs. In both these positions of Mars gains from Elder Siblings, especially Brothers, are restricted. Good positions to make own efforts and earn own bread.
Mercury - Mercury also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Mercury rules 1st & 4th houses and sits in 11th house in Aries. These people love to be within friends and they gain from them. Actually, they become very clever with age and make friendship with only those people from whom they can gain. They love working with large organizations and they gain a lot from their siblings. Here, communication style becomes very direct.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Cancer. Again, a person who is very communicative with his colleagues and friends but here communication style becomes emotional and caring. In both these positions of Mercury, Communication and Business Mind will be a big part of life path and career.
Venus - Venus also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is a Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 6th house and sits in 11th house in Pisces sign. Now, this Venus is exalted. So, in a way Moon and Venus are two planets which can give great results of this placement. Great gains from networks, friends, colleagues. These are the people who love working in large organisations. Huge gains are on cards from all sources which 11th house represents. Wife, Female Friends and Females overall become source of gains.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Venus rules 1st & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Leo. Here, they work for large Government Organizations as Leo is sign of Government. Of course, they are going to be very beautiful as Venus' beauty is brightened in Sun ruled sign. But at the same time, it is not too good for relationship as Sun can also burn Venus. But good gains from Government. Pleasant and Beautiful personality for both the Ascendants.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 4th house and sits in 11th house in Libra Sign. Here gains will come through Finance related work. These people will be seen as Guru and person of wisdom in their professional circles and friends. As Jupiter represents Husband for a girl, it shows husband working in large organizations and gains from husband. Good gains from all the things which 11th house represents.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 1st & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Capricorn. Here, the situation becomes reverse as Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn, unless Jupiter is far away from exact debilitation degree or it is receiving a Neech-Bhang Raaj Yoga. Here there are not much gains from large organizations and in this case a girl may get a husband who may actually bring losses to her life. It doesn't mean they will have no gains or money in their life. That's why, it is very necessary to carefully examine the whole chart in such case to know the right path of career and from where wealth is coming.
Saturn - Saturn also can be Ascendant ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as an Ascendant, Saturn in 11th house (in Scorpio/Sagittarius respectively) shows someone who has to put lots of hard work and dedication in order to gain any money in their. This situation will become more intense when Saturn is in Scorpio for Capricorn Ascendant. These are the people who had no easy gains in life and hence they had to put their best effort for any sort of gains. Desired Gains and Earning are delayed in life up to the age of 30s and then they start prospering. So, Saturn's rule of delay but no denial applies here too. Gains are guaranteed but delayed in life.
Rahu - If Rahu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 11th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittariu in 11th house shows someone who has very weird sense of religion and spirituality. It might be correct one but it is not conventional and accepted by society. Here, people gain through Foreign Resources. Foreign Lands and MNCs become great source of Income and Gains.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is Ascendant Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 11th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. This position shows a person wo is not very much interested in money matters. It is not that they don't earn money, they just don't care for money. And here is the trick, whatever you don't care in life comes easily. So, these people actually turn out to be millionaires and billionaires but they don't care about the money. :)
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
