The individual with Neptune in House 11 adapts their behaviour in groups, and the placement also involves the person making many sacrifices for the greater good. The 11th house is called the house of hopes, goals, and ideals, to move beyond bong concerned with the self, ego and personal issues and stretches up towards a higher goal and needs to involve itself in the larger scheme of things. We move upwards toward collective-hopes, collective-goals, and collective-ideals. All members of the group support one another, and have a common dream, which involves teamwork in all aspects. It entails all people with aspirations, a sense of meaning and value to what can be achieved with many like-minded souls, for there is no “I” in the team. However, it is not like the person loses all sense of who they are because these societies are based on the individual’s own values, longings and ideals expressed in a larger format. Nevertheless, there is still the danger of losing the self to these schemes and being influenced too easily by other people. The group may represent a place where the Neptune in House 11 individual finds salvation, escape, and redemption. According to Liz Greene: “Alcoholics Anonymous…which seeks to offer help to the individual through identification with a group of fellow sufferers…. Neptune is in Virgo in the 11th house”. Therefore, the author is saying that often these groups must share something in common, serve a common goal and symbolize a group of individuals with the same spiritual aim. The person is unusually sensitive to causes that can elevate the soul or blind side them; there is no doubt that much sympathy in directed toward the activities of the 11th house. The person feels a large tidal wave of emotion directed towards humanity and in some shape or form wishes to wash away the ills of the world and create a better world.

One moment the individual is carried by the currents towards one particular plan, but then they are floating again in the sea of other possibilities. As long as they feel fulfilled and are contributing something mystical, artistic, political to the group and aspiring to some higher aim the person feels a deep sense of emotional satisfaction.
