If you could use some extra support or gassing up right now, you’re in luck—just look to your 11th house in astrology to guide you in where to find that community. As a reminder, the zodiac wheel is divided into 12 houses that overlap with each of the zodiac signs. Each house represents a different aspect of life, and the 11th house rules over friendship and community. That winning combination can help you determine what group of likeminded souls to seek out.

All you need to do is learn what sign’s planetary energy reside in your 11th house. To get that intel, you can run a free birth-chart generator online (like this one!) to lean what sign(s) are in your 11th house of astrology. And to help you understand what you’re looking at (because natal charts are notoriously confusing), you might consider scheduling a private reading with an astrologer. Once you have a sense of the activity in your 11th house, check out what astrologer Ambi Kavanagh of Soulstrology has to say about what friendship community may best serve you.

Below, learn the best way for you to seek community, according to your 11th house in astrology.

Aries

“Aries folk would do well by joining competitive sports teams and burning off some fiery energy together, as well as think tanks and leadership groups for fellow leaders in their professional field,” says Kavanagh.

For those with Aries in their 11th house who aren’t yet looking to mingle in person, now’s a good time to find a virtual workout class or online networking community.

Taurus

If you have Taurus in your 11th house, Kavanagh says you bond with people over your love of nature, art, beauty, and creativity. A hiking group, yoga group, or conservationist organization might be the right fit for you. If you’re not feeling super-outdoorsy, you could bond with other culture lovers via online art classes, museums tours, and theater clubs.

Gemini

“These social butterflies can find friends anywhere and everywhere they go,” says Kavanagh. “They tend to have less-intense friendships with more friends based on what is piquing their interest at any given time.”

So for those with Gemini in their 11th house, variety is key. Find a community that allows you to go to multiple different events with multiple focuses, like, perhaps, an alumni association, and make connections from there.

Cancer

Those with Cancer in their 11th house tend to prefer deep, meaningful, relationships nurtured by intimate get-togethers. “Friends will be more like family, and less is more here,” Kavanagh says.

That means holding small gatherings—whether online or socially distant in person.

Leo

“Leo in the 11th house will be a leader of a group of friends who love to have fun together while indulging in their hobbies, creative endeavors, and passions,” says Kavanagh.

You might feel at home in some kind of performing group, being part of a local music scene, or any other avenue where open-mic culture is rampant.

Virgo

“Dutiful, practical, Virgo is likely to volunteer for a good cause, join the board of a charity, and find friends with whom they can be dutiful and practical together,” says Kavanagh.

Libra

“Libra in the 11th house is the ‘hostess with the mostess’ and a social butterfly,”  says Kavanagh. “Whether it is entertaining at home, or attending parties, Venus-themed events will attract them.”

Scorpio

“Deep, soulful connections are for these people,” says Kavanagh. “In other words, spiritual, other-realm meet-ups.”

You might feel at home in new/full moon circle, working through past-life regressions, or even tantric workshops (lest we ever forget Scorpio’s sexual side).

Sagittarius

Sagittarius is interested in what it all means, but they don’t always stay in one place for very long. Where someone with Sag in their 11th house finds community, then, is in a philosophical course or workshop or a place of worship.

“Somewhere they are learning and teaching and can spend hours in philosophical debate,” Kavanagh says. “Consider a voyage overseas, an ashram, or a yoga retreat.”

Capricorn

“Friendships will be found in a place that feels like home–the workplace,” Kavanagh says. “You’ll have older friends, usually people with status and power. Capricorn in the 11th house naturally gravitate toward people in power because they are role models—and mentors often become good friends.”

Aquarius

“Aquarius will find their community in groups working to change the world for the better, whether in terms of social justice or technological advancements,” says Kavanagh. “That might mean on a protest march or at a tech conference, dreaming and scheming for the greater good.”

Pisces

“Those with Pisces in the 11th house should pursue creative and spiritual pursuits,” Kavanagh says. “That could be in a gig, a concert, or a band. Or, as ocean lovers, maybe they’ll find companionship in a surf or kayaking group.”
