Black Moon Lilith in the Houses – How Does Your Dark Side Manifest?

Updated: Aug 15, 2022

Warning⛔️: Some MAY have triggers associated with some stuff (dark sexuality), with this article being rather light in its darkness. Just a simple warning. Happy reading!

The Black Moon Lilith in your natal chart is the point associated with the ‘darker’ sides of our personality–as it pertains to sexuality, freedom, defiance, independence, manipulation, karma, and more. It’s certainly not something to be afraid of, as all of us have both light and dark within us. And if channeled correctly & morally, it can absolutely be a beautiful thing! Learning to know our darker parts helps us to understand ourselves better, leading to a better channeling of energy and knowing what your triggers are. Acceptance is the first step to healing and manifesting our sexuality and freedom in a beautiful way.

Lilith in the 1st House: Lilith in the 1st will influence the individual on a profound level. They may be very physically attractive, have a natural sexual allure, and actually enjoy pulling rebellious stunts for the shock-value. I consider this to be a “hot-and-cold” aspect, or a two-sided coin, as it is easier for the darker sides of humanity to come out of them–manipulation, provocative sex, drug use, are a few of the possibilities. Yet the person will also have a strong demeanor, and will not truly care if others don’t like them. Independence and defiance in the face injustices can certainly occur as a result of this placement. This potent and sexual energy may be harnessed as a driving-force in a person’s life once they have learned to channel it correctly.

Marilyn is known by many to have had an extremely sexy and seductive aura about her.

Lilith in the 2nd House: An individual with Lilith in the 2nd house will have a tendency to be somewhat stingy, greedy, and pleasure-seeking in the effort to obtain money and material possessions. Financial security and the fear that they do not deserve it pushes them through that fear to make the effort to be as financially-secure as possible. This individual must learn to feel comfortable in sharing resources, material possessions, and guard themselves against greediness. This will lead to the understanding that sharing is a good thing, and there is no need to have fear. Transformation & comfort-ability come through changing the way they think through actions and re-training.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 2nd house: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Prince Harry has been widely criticized for his frequent use of private jets, and an overly luxurious lifestyle and spending habits.

Lilith in the 3rd House: Those with Lilith in the 3rd house may have a dark sense of humor, be into alternative or shocking entertainment & literature, while they have the capability of being fantastic liars. They might not be opposed to using under-handed tactics in order to receive information or get what they desire. Overall, this is considered a favorable Lilith placement, as it is believed that Lilith feels most comfortable in the sign of Gemini, which rules the 3rd house. This does not mean they are impervious to the negative sides of Lilith, however. There may be negative experiences in early education, and relationships with siblings may not be true or harmonious; as in, they may be inclined to manipulate their siblings (or be manipulated) if it supports their desires. Some might even consider these individuals have a sick or twisted imagination, as their minds are most definitely not impervious to the darker side of human nature. These people may speak in a seductive, sexy, or even weird or creepy way. This placement indicates a lesson needing to be learned in ‘holding your tongue,’ or thinking before you speak.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 3rd house: Elon Musk

Elon Musk is known for communicating and voicing his opinions in an abrupt, blunt, and humorous manner with a large dose of shock-value.

Lilith in the 4th House: This placement in the natal chart is considered to be less favorable, as it directly affects home-life and what life was like for the individual growing up. There may be themes related to sexuality–whether one of their parents cheated on the other, there was sexual abuse, or the child walked in on somewhat that may have been somewhat scarring. The relationship with one or both parents may be strained, as themes of manipulation, verbal or physical abuse, or malice may be present. Because of negative themes associated with earlier childhood, these individuals often put all of their focus & attention on the opposite house; the 10th, which rules the career, public face, reputation, and more. They can excel in their careers with this placement, but those who do this must ask themselves if it has to do with their avoidance of themes of their childhood, relationship to their parents, or family life in general. There is acceptance & healing that must occur so the individual can overcome the fear of these family-related themes cropping up again.

Lilith in the 5th House: Those with Lilith in the 5th house will often confront Lilith-type themes when it comes to childhood, recreational activities, creativity, and relations to their peers. They may have been bullied or mistreated by others in games or sports, or been seen as some type of antagonist. They may have a desire to be the center of attention (as the 5th house is traditionally ruled by the sign of Leo), and might resort to under-handed tactics in order to fulfill their desires. This placement can, of course, also bring intense pleasure in sexuality, and bringing overall pleasure in sexual situations to the maximum for both the chart-holder and their partner. They may have fears related to having & raising children, and may even worry they may resent their children. Again, positively, sexual pleasure & creativity is strengthened, and the ‘darker’ sides of this placement such as the desire to show-off & be appreciated sexually can most definitely be channeled in a positive way.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 5th house: Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle is known for her adoration of attention, the spotlight being on her, and seems to heavily dislike when attention is afforded elsewhere.

Lilith in the 6th House: Those with this placement may have had difficulty in establishing a solid & reliable daily routine in their childhood years. They may have resented a familial authority figure, such as a mother or older sibling, for the structures & patterns forced upon them. They may make certain moves with the desire to limit the amount of work they have to do as much as reasonably possible. This placement also indicates the possibility of dis-harmonic relations with co-workers, as well. There may be a resentment towards higher-ups and similarly-leveled positions, as underhanded tactics may be used in order to get the upper hand on, say, a job promotion. There may be a desire to form sexual relations with a co-worker–while it should be noted, or warned, that the individual would be wise to think before jumping into something, as oftentimes, relations after-the-fact may be awkward & uncomfortable. With this placement, it’s important to confront your disdain for daily routines and work on your practice of them, as we all need some semblance of routine in order to flourish in the more spontaneous & creative parts of our lives.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 6th house: Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando has been known to hold up production on set while filming his movies, demand rewrites of scripts, and generally butted heads with directors and staff.

Lilith in the 7th House: Those with Lilith in the 7th house will be drawn towards partners that are somehow ‘dark’–whether through a dark sense of humor, questionable morality, or oozing sexuality portrayed by their partner. This may be due to the chart-holder’s own naivety, innocence, and sweetness; creating a more balancing-effect between the two partners. There are some red flags to note with this placement, however. For one, there is the possibility for the chart-holder to be attracted to someone who is somehow dangerous; for either themselves or others around them. It’s important for these individuals to think twice before entering a relationship with a particular person; in order to ensure they most likely pose no threat to you or anyone else. It’s important to also note that there may be an instinct to try to ‘change’ their partner for the better; which is advised against, as it may, as they say, blow up in their face. Divorce is more prevalent with this placement, so as previously stated, simply truly looking at yourself & your partner in the mirror without rose-colored glasses is all you need to avoid harm & setbacks.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 7th house: Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain was known to have a tumultuous relationship with Courtney Love (pictured), while it has been theorized by some of both his family members and the general public that she was somehow involved in his untimely death.

Lilith in the 8th House: Those with Lilith in the 8th house will oftentimes have complicated or conflicting feelings when it comes to sex. They may associate sex with violence, roughness, or some other sort of more negative connotation. This may be due to a number of things–having accidentally viewed a sexually-explicit movie scene at a young & impressionable age, or their parents may have described sex in a rather negative light; whether it has to do with religion or personal philosophies held by the parents. Sex to the chart-holder will be akin to death in that each sexual experience feels like an intense birth-death-rebirth cycle. They may be interested in more alternative forms of sexual expression–whether it be being treated roughly, role-playing, or implementing the use of sex-related objects into their ‘near-death’ sexual experiences. Something to note is that the individual may be inclined to unfaithfulness in relationships due to sexual desires, while their darker nature is likely to slip into any occult practices they may involve themselves in. It’s important to think twice before implementing any kind of vengeful acts with the intent of harming another. Overall, the individual may love to engage in sexual escapades of extraordinary or taboo experience; which is not a bad thing–it’s simply important to keep your darker instincts in check!

Lilith in the 9th House: An individual with Lilith in the 9th house will typically be drawn to darker types of literature, creative endeavors, and will have an innate ability to influence others. This can be misused, however, as the chart-holder may have a tendency to want to control others intellectually & philosophically–this is a classic Lilith position of cult-leaders and the radically religious. The individual may be obsessed with teaching others; to such a point that they need others to understand and agree with their ideas, to which they must be careful of due to this darker manipulative desire residing within them. The energy of Lilith can absolutely be positive in the 9th house, however, as she does represent freedom & breaking free from establishment. This brave & bold energy may be used to help make society better. This individual may have had issues with higher education; refusing to go or dropping out eventually, and there may be a marked rebelliousness toward authority figures that the chart-holder must wrestle & come to terms with.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is a prime example of a 9th house Lilith being used for positive transformation in society. It has, however, been speculated that his sway over the masses and recognition got to his head and he engaged in adultery, among other things.

Lilith in the 10th House: Individuals with Lilith in the 10th house will be more inclined to resort to under-handed tactics in the workplace in order to reach their goals. They may have a hard time in concealing any secrets or affairs they wish to keep hidden when it comes to sex and other taboo subjects, as the 10th house is in the public eye. For the conscious individual, it’s important to refrain from anything too risque that could have a negative effect on your reputation as it relates to your career & public image. The individual with this placement may have a deep-seated lust for power, control, and success. The positive side of this placement is having the determination & willpower to succeed in career-related endeavors. The danger is in how you treat your co-workers and how you use or misuse your power. With this placement, it’s important to remain aware of this darker power and desire within you, so that you may channel it effectively.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 10th house: Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin, as President of Russia, has made in no secret he wishes to return to the "glory days" of the Soviet Union--as in, re-expand Russia by taking over neighboring territories at any cost necessary.

Lilith in the 11th House: Lilith in the 11th house may incline the chart-holder towards radical, different, or socially-experimental groups of people. The individual may have the desire to rebel from the popular culture, and instead seek an alternative lifestyle with like-minded individuals. This person may have experienced a number of issues with classmates growing up, having had hatred thrown their way, and that hatred even thrown back to them, too, by the chart-holder. There is a danger here of using under-handed tactics in order to control member’s of one’s group, spreading gossip, or creating discord among the group in order to further one’s goals. This person might be interested in partaking in group sexual activities, or sex with friends. There may be an ever-present sexual undertone to the chart-holder’s friendships; not being afraid to partake in dark or sexual humor. Positively, this placement may be used as a powerful force to help shed light on or overthrow an establishment that is not benefiting the people. Learning to channel the fiery & bold energy of Lilith with the chart-holders friends, groups, & organizations will help tremendously to keep from getting caught in your own crossfire.

Celebrity with Lilith in the 11th house: Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise has been staunchly loyal to the religion and organization of Scientology since the 80s--an association that is a far cry from the social centre or norm.

Lilith in the 12th House: Individuals with Lilith in the 12th house will be deeply and subconsciously influenced by Lilith-type themes. The individual may experience recurring nightmares revolving around issues such as rape, torture, or any other dark thing the mind can conjure up. They may have deep-rooted fears when it comes to anything having to do with the 12th house–whether it be anything occult or spiritual, and even being repulsed by institutions such as hospitals, asylums, and homes for the elderly. There may be an unpleasant Lilith-type experiences embedded into the subconscious. Because the individual is so deeply influenced by Lilith on a subconscious level, it’s rather easy for them to delve into the darkest depths of the mind; making it more likely that they will resort to drug-use or other forms of escape in order to not experience what they perceive to be mental torture. It’s important with this placement to ensure you’re not using drugs or alcohol to stop the bad thoughts from coming, as this will not help. The individual must identify, confront, and through this, abolish their deeply-seated fears related to Lilith themes. It might take some time, as the subconscious is more difficult to navigate, but the trans-formative nature of this placement is profound.
