Eleventh House in Vedic Astrology
The traditional horoscope in vedic astrology is divided into 12sub sections each depicting specified aspect of life. Today we will talk about the eleventh house which is popularly known as the house of gains or labha bhava in astrology. It signifies prosperity, financial and spiritual gains, wealth, abundance, and income. People with a strong 11th house in their horoscope may reap profits and gains in abundance.
Our ancient seers called the eleventh house the "House of Good Spirit" or "Good Divinity," and it was considered a beneficial place in the chart. This is a house of hopes, aspirations and expectations, a place for that shows fulfillment of desires—and in a materialistic way. Worldly pleasures and material abundance can be seen here through this house, and the most beneficial planet in the zodiac, Jupiter, is the karaka of the eleventh house.
Modern astrologers mainly consider it the house of desires, clubs and associations of likeminded people, or a group of people working together—and also a house denoting friendships. Traditionally, since the eleventh is second to the tenth and the tenth was the house of the king, the eleventh has denoted the king‘s advisers, his council and allies.
The eleventh house is connected to the zodiac sign Aquarius according to kal purush kundli. And Saturn is the natural ruler here. Common traits of Aquarius sign are independent nature, humanitarian, analytical skills, etc. which further reflects in this house. The most beneficial planet is Saturn if placed here. However, it is considered a weak house for the Moon.
This is also one of the upachaya houses, the upachaya houses are 3,6 and 11th house in astrology. These houses depict growth with passage of time. So, if the eleventh house has positive influence the native will grow with passage of time. All planets are considered good in these houses and even malefics like Saturn, Rahu, Mars and Sun are considered planets for growth as well because they give initiative to the person to move ahead in life.
One‘s desires, aim & accomplishments are significant depictions of the labha bhava.

Your aspirations and desires and their fulfillment come under the realm of 11th house only. The 11th house is the 5th from the 7th house which signifies our desires, thus, it refers to the fulfillment of those desires, which is why it is named the house of gains.
