Lilith in the 1st House

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 1st house, we should mention that the article series is about Black Moon Lilith, also called the True Lilith. Thus, we should distinguish this mathematical point of alignment from the asteroid Lilith, and also from Dark Moon Lilith.

Lilith is not a planet and is not a material object. It is the hypothetical point connected to the apogee of the Moon’s orbit, the farthest spot from Earth that the Moon can reach. The Moon is not orbiting Earth in a circle but in an ellipse, and thus this calculation shows the astrological degree in the signs where when the Moon transits is more distant from our planet.

Black Moon Lilith is a rather dark point of an individual’s natal chart. The distance extreme of the Moon makes emotion and sentiments hit a low and show their cold side, and the placement of this mathematical spot signifies quite a lot of doubtful or even negative behaviors. Under one’s Lilith can hide subconscious energies of malice and self-undoing, yet it would be wrong to consider her as a negative spot.

When Lilith is located in the 1st house of a natal chart, she is strongly connected to one’s physical self, both the body and the mind. In case that she is conjuncting the Ascendant, the native will be oozing of dark sexuality, becoming an object of desire for other people. Lilith in the first house can give a very hot body, and especially in a woman’s chart can make her so attractive that other people can become obsessed with her figure. Also, Lilith placed here may indicate very bad relations with the female’s father. He can be of a violent nature, and the chart owner will frequently reproduce patterns of violent explosions in her own life.

In addition, the presence of Black Moon Lilith in the first house can give a tendency to wear black and morbid clothes, and generally have a rather dark and alternative style. The traits are quite common as having Pluto in the house, yet Lilith brings a less serious approach to clothing – the individual desires to look extraordinary and differ from the rest of the community. Also, taboo themes such as death and sex will be used as art and style to provoke the masses. A first house Lilith person will easily wear sculls, crosses, pentacles and everything else that will make him pass as dark in the other people’s minds.

Moreover, Lilith in the first house can also give a rather provocative character. The person who has this placement can have tendencies of acting “bitchy”, indulge in mind games and manipulations and even receive pleasure from confrontations with other people. Having enemies may be a source of personal power, and they do not seem to be discouraged when not being liked by others. In fact, this helps them create an even more strong and eccentric persona, frequently making their appearance and behavior be gossiped by the society. They take pride when other people notice them and discuss them, even if it is in a negative way.

As the 1st house is associated with the native’s body and how he treats it, Lilith will spawn her magic in the native’s everyday reality through quite a lot of means. Sex and drugs can frequently appear in the native’s life, especially if Lilith makes aspects with important planets. Good aspects can even show a very responsible use of these power sources, turning the native into a very spiritual being – even if he follows darker roads towards higher consciousness.

An adversely aspected Lilith can make the native have quite a lot of personal demons, and suffer from existential questions and dilemmas. Lilith in bad aspect to Mars, Pluto or other malefics can bring tendencies of self-abuse, love of pain and all types of perversions involving symbolical suffering. When in a water sign or negatively aspected to Neptune, a first House Lilith can give substance addiction.

On the other hand, taming Lilith’s dark powers can grant the native a fruitful life full of sexuality, while also a mind that can connect to deeper realms and understand the functions of hypnotism. In any case, the native can seduce others easily even if he does not understand the mechanism behind such phenomena.

In case you have this natal placement, understanding how to better channel the obscure energies of Lilith will help you very much avoid any negative effects. Be careful to hold back feelings of revenge, as it can backfire at you. Also, hold yourself away from self-destruction, even if it may appear as a vice that you enjoy. Know that you are easily noticed by others, your energy cannot just pass unnoticed; thus, there is no real need of over-exaggerating in your appearance and behavior. And finally, try to keep away from trouble! In case your life indeed has quite a lot, you will understand that most of the times it was your choice to get into trouble. Yes, this produces adrenalin; but if you consciously do it then do not be grumpy about it.

    Interesting post… I have both Dark Moon and Black Moon Lillith in Leo in the first house and conjunct the ascendant, but I don’t really feel that… noticed. I actually feel rather shy and calm (could this be because of my Virgo ascendant?)

    I have Lilith and Vesta in conjunction in Leo. I guess I feel noted, and yes I do take good care of my body and my spiritual development. I want to be the best. Lilith and Vesta are in my first house. – I was just always surprised that people tend to wear black. I am more of a red color person, and I like happy and bright colors. – It is true that I do not care if people see me in a dark light, though I am rather light soul and a dreamer. I am more like an opposite to dark – do not like dark sexuality or gothic style. I never would use any drugs or alcohol. In fact, people in my presence cannot drink either. Something stops them. – I also used to wear very proper clothes because I felt like being watched. I want to look sexy only to one man I love – not to create temptation. Because wring men feel horny and it just creates an addiction and trouble. I like to be approach tenderly. I guess probably most people find it very generic, yet for me it is first devotion and friendship and then compassion and love. I am very energetic, and somehow I guess maybe Lilith gives energy and Vesta gives a sense of faith and honor. – I can be a bit self-destructive when I love a home in my goals because I compulsively look for solutions – and they are just deep in my soul. It is my perception of the world and of my happiness. I believe that life provides us with what we need. we just need to learn to appreciate it.

    I have Lilith in the first house conjunct the ASC in Scorpio by 2 degrees. Pretty much everything in the above description is accurate. It’s the most accurate personality reflection I’ve found in online astrology. I also have Pluto conjunct the ASC here, which may intensify these characteristics, I don’t know. Marilyn Monroe had Lilith conjunct the ASC and Neptune very closely from what I have read (in Leo), and I suppose pills ruined her life and perhaps ended it prematurely. As a male with Lilith placed here, I notice a special connection with females in my life and an ability to get deep into their psyches really quickly. As the woman above wrote, I usually prefer to wear red, but I often wear black too. I believe it is important for Lilith rising people to be aware of tendencies towards self-destruction so they can avoid it and channel this energy for better uses. Although a male, I have always been a champion of women and an ardent feminist (unusual among men? I don’t know). I feel that Lilith rising, though it can perhaps tend to attract complications from time to time, is truly a blessing in life.

    My moon, rising and lilith are Scorpio. Im a Gemini sun, and I don’t think I’m good at reading people, I don’t take pleasure from confrontations, I’m not attractive to others, or ooze sex. Why is it that I don’t fit into the meaning of my chart placements??, I’m not even that much of a Gemini. Please answer, I’m starting to think Astrology isn’t the legit , at least for me.

    Could someone explain what it means to lilith in 1st house if you’re a guy? I feel like this article is orientated towards women.

    I have read the above and it is tooo true. I have Lilith in Aries in the first house conjunct Aries Ascendant. It is opposite my Sun and quincunx my Venus ans well as sesquiquadrate pluto. I love bright colors but really loove black plus I love jewelery with skulls and skeletons that is gothic as well as other kinds of jewellery. Ive noticed people can be intimidated by me even before I talk to them. I have this desire to be wild but I rarely let it out but its in there. I love extremeties especially if it is rebelling against the norm. anything that goes against what is normal captivates me. Regarding my body, that I have found to be true that it is really sexual hence I can tend to cover up a lot. I always love to fight for feminine rights.
