The 11th House is not usually included in articles about romance. It represents groups and the collective, so it would seem to have no place in one-on-one relationships. But it is on the same axis as the 5th House (self-expression, romance and receiving recognition) whose themes are carried outwards in the 11th (your place in the group). Now, what happens when you’re born with Saturn, the planet of limits and restrictions, in this house?
Saturn’s location in the natal chart is where you have to make an extra effort. Some astrologers have said that Saturn is well-placed in this house, because Aquarius is the natural ruler of the 11th, and Saturn is Aquarius’ traditional ruler. But things do not come easily where Saturn is located, partially because Saturn’s limits are rooted in your fears and inhibitions. Most astrologers describe 11th House Saturn people as aloof in group situations. They put up walls (Saturn) between themselves and others. Or, they may become determined social butterflies in an effort to keep that sense of not belonging at bay. In either scenario, group interactions do not come naturally. In his book Synthesis and Counselling in Astrology, Noel Tyl has taken this description a step further and suggested that 11th House Saturn indicates a huge “need for love.”
