Analysis of Bhava XV- Planets in the Eleventh House

The eleventh house is the house of gains and is known as Labha Bhava. The gains though mainly seen in terms of monetary gains, in general this house signify the gain of all objectives and desires. It is interesting to note that the third house is the house of desires and counted in the anti-zodiacal direction, the 3rd house shows the fulfilment of desires. This the why Maharishi Jaimini says that this is the house of Hara or destruction of desires.

This is the last of the four upachayas (3/6/10/11) and being a upachaya, planets placed here cause growth of the lagna or the self. Almost all planets give auspisicious results while placed in this house as they shall help in gaining different objectives of the life. However, it must be remembered that all planets have their own way to fulfil their goals; malefics would do this in their own malefic way and benefics would do this in a benefic way. Primarily the planets placed in this house, shows gain in the life of the native, related to the significations of the planets so placed. So unless, planets are badly placed (debilitated, in inimical sign) or afflicted (placed with/ aspected by malefics), good results can be pronounced, without much afterthought.

From the Argala perspective, the planets placed in this house shall have dhanargala on the 10th house of karmaphala; sukhargala on the 8th house of aayu and labhargala on the Lagna bhava. Thus the planets in this house can actively influence the significance on the 10th, 8th and the Lagna.

Can you please let me know what happens if Ketu is in the 11th house in the natal chart and Saturn is now moving (on July 15th) from the 10th to the 11th house? What will be expected with Saturn in this 11th house? Thanks.
