2. Trouble Separating Friendships from Romances

If you have Scorpio in your 11th house on your natal chart, then it may mean that romantic feelings creep into your friendships.

If there is one thing everyone knows about Scorpios, it’s that they are extremely sensual people. They are passionate lovers.

You may find that you don’t have many true friends of the opposite sex because your sensuality creeps into your interactions. You may go through many fiery romances rather than achieving deep friendships with the opposite sex.

This is because the Scorpio always desires passionate and sensual experiences.

3. You Have Close Friends but Also Fierce Enemies

The strong will and skepticism of the Scorpio sign come together in the 11th House to cause intense relationships – both positive and negative.

If Scorpio governs your 11th house, then expect to see friendships in a black-and-white manner. People are either friends or enemies:

  • Those who are outwardly loyal to you will be cherished by you.
  • Those who appear even slightly disloyal will be cast out of your social circle and dismissed as enemies.

This could be interpreted as a weakness for a person with Scorpio in the 11th house. You are highly skeptical and emotional when it comes to social affairs, meaning you may judge people too soon and misread their intentions.

Nevertheless, as with point 5, it turns out that you’re often correct. Just remember to pause and see whether it’s your emotionality or true intuition that’s affecting your judgment of people’s characters.

4. You’re Quick to Offend

With Scorpio governing your friendships and associations, be careful not to come across to snarky or sarcastic.

Scorpio is a sign that brings a sharp, even cruel, tongue. In social situations, this means that you might inadvertently offend people.

If you ever find that someone has started giving you the cold shoulder, perhaps reflect on the last conversation you had with them and see whether you might have said something that could have been misinterpreted as mean or offensive.

5. You’re a Good Judge of Character

Despite your ability to offend and tendency to judge too soon, it turns out that you’re not a bad judge of character at the end of the day.

This is because Scorpio is a highly intuitive sign. In the 11th house, this brings intuition to your friendships and social circles.

You may come across people who you get an odd feeling about from the very first interaction. This is the Scoprio sign casting a lens over your social interactions. It’s providing you with a deeper level of intuition that other people around you may not have.

However, as noted early, it’s worthwhile taking note of that Scorpio intuition, but not judging too soon. Remember, Scorpio also sometimes lets its emotions get the better of it, so also pay attention to logic when judging others. Your intuition tells you some important things, but it’s not impeccable and all-knowing.


When you are born with Scorpio in the 11th House, you’re likely to be highly intuitive and emotional when it comes to social interactions. You will have passionate friendships but also passionate enemies. You’ll be quick to judge others and, occasionally, accidentally offend people. This is all because Scorpio has an influence on your affairs of friendship and social interaction.
