How well they do or don’t fit in becomes a deeply important running theme for an 11th House Moon person. They display an emotional need to connect to the collective yet most of them are also plagued by a feeling of detachment from any particular group. There’s a sense of being alone, on the outside looking in, that defines their perspective. Because of this, those with their Moon in the 11th House are often detached from social conventions, flouting them with the quirks and unconventional behaviors of their particular Moon sign. If a Leo Moon is placed here, then they will show everyone they are different by being very expressive and colorful, to a rather offbeat degree. There’s a need to challenge the status quo with this placement and push a few buttons that can often get them into trouble.
Indeed, they might find their behavior causing a regular bit of controversy or just puzzled head-shaking from those around them. This is what contributes to the 11th House Moon’s feeling that they are misunderstood and don’t fit in. But, this can also be their greatest source of freedom. The emotional responses of their Moon are highly independent, not requiring much validation or approval from other people. They are capable of fulfilling the needs of their Moon without being self-conscious about what people think about their behavior. Although they express their Moon sign’s energy without judging themselves, their total lack of self-judgment is also what can make them rather distanced from this energy, as well. They don’t like getting bogged down in it.
Moon in the 11th House people exercise the same kind of nonjudgmental attitude toward other people, especially those who become close to them. Well, one should say relatively close. These aren’t the types to really be that close to anyone. But, they have an intuitive knack for making friends, usually because they know how it feels to be alone. If someone seems left out, the 11th House Moon’s instinct is to befriend them and get to know them. In fact, the more on the social fringes a person is, the more they will intrigue these individuals. They can so easily spread themselves around and become chummy with just about anyone, no matter what their race or lifestyle or background may be. Yet, they remain inherently attached to little to no one, which is less true if they’re a Water Moon. They live their private lives like mad scientists, too caught up in their experiments to be bothered.
