What if Mercury is in 11th house for Gemini Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
For a Gemini Ascendant, Mercury will fall in the sign of Aries when placed in the 11th house. 11th house represents the public or masses or the customers (for example, for teachers their students are their customers) or the professional network circle and Aries is an aggressive sign or a sign of putting a lot of energy and effort.
So, it means the Gemini ascendant natives spend a lot of their energy in dealing with the people or the customers. Now when a planet like Mercury is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Aries it means putting a lot of energy and efforts into communicating with the people as Mercury is a planet of communication.
Now, these people could be your students, your customers, your employees, people in your network circle, people, in general, if you are a social worker, etc. People like news anchors and journalists can also be seen from this placement as they communicate a lot with the people and try to find out what everything has happened on the spot to collect their daily news.
If Saturn is placed in the sign of Aries in the 11th house along with Mercury then these could even be policemen or people in the army who could be very aggressive with other people (such as people protesting against the government or enemies) by having a wooden stick (danda) or even a gun in their hand as Saturn represents all tools made of iron, steel, and wood. People in the army (such as major generals) are also very aggressive by their hands as well as by their speech or communication and such people can also be seen from this placement as Aries is a sign of aggression and Mercury also represents our hands and shoulders.
Aries is also a sign that represents motion and we study a lot about motion in the subject of physics and so people giving lectures on the subjects of science and engineering can also be seen from this placement. Mechanical engineering professors and physics teachers are good examples of that.
You might have also seen people communicating a lot as they make youtube videos to interact with their audience and their communication or voice reaches to millions of people through a network who are watching their youtube videos and such people may also have their ascendant lord Mercury falling in the sign of Aries in the 11th house as 11th house is also the house of networking.
There are also people like motivational speakers or political leaders who are also very aggressive speakers and they communicate in front of a large audience and the audience is represented by the 11th house. Such Gemini Ascendant natives may also have this placement of Mercury in the 11th house.
11th house is also the house of spinning or rotating and there are many sports athletic events where you need to throw something such as shot put, discus, hammer, and javelin, and people engaged in such athletic events may also have this placement of Mercury in the 11th house in the sign of Aries (along with Sun) but this is more so possible if Mars and Saturn are placed in the 1st house in the sign of Gemini as Gemini is a sign that represents our hands and shoulders. 11th house is actually 6th from the 6th house and so 11th house is also the house of competitions as 11th house is the higher self of 6th house of competitions.
But Aries is also a sign that represents the fuel such as the petrol, diesel, gasoline, kerosene, etc and there are also many people who work at the petrol pumps to deliver fuel to the vehicle owners and they use their hands to do so (as Mercury represents hand) and such Gemini ascendant people may also have this placement of Mercury in the 11th house. What exactly the native will do will depend on the position of 11th lord Mars and other planets in the birth chart. You should also look at the sign on the 11th house in the Navamsa chart and that will give a better idea.
Suppose Mercury and Sun are placed in the sign of Aries in the 11th house but if the 11th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 8th house then such people may be involved in the marketing and advertising of iron, steel, coal, oil, petroleum, metals, etc as the sign of Capricorn represents all these things.
Or they may speak about these items as a news anchor but the 8th lord Saturn must be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 6th house as Scorpio is a sign that represents things obtained from below the earth such as coal. Also, Sun is really a planet of promotion as Sun is > name and fame and represents brands and it should also be placed along with Mercury in the 11th house. You could also be a marketing manager in some coal or mining company with this placement.
Suppose Mercury and Sun are placed in the sign of Aries in the 11th house but if the 11th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 7th house then people working in the transport and logistics industry may have this placement as Sagittarius is a sign that represents the transportation and travel.
Many wholesale businessmen also communicate about transportation all the time as they supply goods to other cities through transportation and such people may also have this same placement. Also, people marketing and advertising their agricultural products may also have this placement as the sign of Sagittarius also represents the field of agriculture and crops especially Purvashada Nakshatra.
Suppose Mercury and Sun are placed in the sign of Aries in the 11th house but if the 11th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 6th house then people involved in sports, fitness, and health care are generally seen from this placement. You could also market health care and fitness products with this placement.
