eleventh house

Eleventh House is a digital project by the Koffler Centre of the Arts exploring the rituals of astrology reading and horoscope writing. Inspired by both Western and Lunar traditions, writers and artists have created horoscopes for the coming year, some approaching the cultural phenomenon of astrology with cynicism, and others with earnestness. Eleventh House features original work by Meg Prosper in Heartbreak HoroscopeWalter Scott in Toxic Astrologyannieanniewongwong and Emmie Tsumura in Kindred Trines, and Meech Boakye and Dainesha Nugent-Palache in Signed Advice.

At the time of this publication launch we are in the midst of a global pandemic, COVID-19, which has affected virtually every part of the world in drastic ways, economically, physically and psychologically. To protect ourselves and one another, we are being asked to stay in our homes, to isolate from our communities and to settle into uncertainty. Named for the celestial location of community, supporters, friendships, hopes and dreams for the future, and good fortune through networks, Eleventh House is for those seeking respite from the feelings of separation and anxiety this moment has provided in abundance.

Each zodiac and corresponding horoscope reflects on romantic relationships, platonic companionship, toxic individualism and opportunities for collective vigilance. Together, they remind us of the ways–real or imagined–the stars, the planets, the unknowable and unseen affect our lives, and the tonic offered by turning towards rituals of acceptance, healing and community building.
