Friend in need is a friend indeed, thus goes the famous proverb on friendship. And we tend to spend most of our time, and share most of our emotions with friends, who come into our life as strangers and stay permanently in our life as angels, always being with us in both good and bad times.
Astrologically friends are identified from the 11th house of an individual?s horoscope/natal chart. If the 11th lord or the 11th house of a person is strong, the person will be socially famous, well known, and will have influential and powerful friends. If this lord or house is weak, it can be easily said that the person will have problems and misunderstanding with friendships leading to pain, losses, and misgivings!
This simple fundamental rests on the amazing logic of Hindu rishis/saints. The 11th lord and house also signifies income. It can be interpreted that a person who has many friends makes more money using his contacts, and can get his important work done very easily, right from getting to know about a job vacancy or investing in the right place based on friends? advice.
Friends and relations with them can be determined through Mercury and significators of 11th house in your horoscope.
11th house owner, planets associated with it, planets in 11th house, planets viewing 11th house makeup our friends.
