Lilith in the 6th House

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 6th house, we should mention that the article is about Black Moon Lilith. Thus, we should distinguish this mathematical point of alignment from the asteroid Lilith, and also from Dark Moon Lilith, which is calculated in a different way.

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 obscure point of an individual’s natal chart. This topographical 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 something mostly negative.

Having Lilith in the 6th can complicate an individual’s daily routines and biorhythms, while also quite a lot of job issues and relations with coworkers. It may be connected with disharmonic memories the person has from how experienced his duties and obligations during childhood, both towards himself and to others. The young native developed feelings of hate towards situations when he was pressured to keep certain daily patterns, and definitely did not like serving orders or feeling under someone else’s rule.

As the 6th house is the realm of Virgo, Black Moon Lilith pays a lot of attention to the details, ready to bite even when does not like something small. Placed here she dislikes hierarchy and submission to others, and if pressured will sabotage even her own efforts. For a native with such a placement, respect of his work is something necessary. In case he observes a dominative attitude from his employer, he will not let that pass unpunished. A 6th house Lilith suggest discord even with the co-workers, while if the individual is the owner of the business then his employees will be rather untamable.

Lilith has a lot of seductive traits and characteristics, thus giving strong sexuality to the individual’s job life. Yet, Lilith does not develop healthy love affairs, and in case she is activated in one’s job surroundings she will most naturally bring difficulties. If you have this placement, be careful; having sex with a co-worker or your employer might include a lot of passion, but take care to consider what awkward situations it can bring afterwards. Lilith placed here will bring abrupt endings, while also develop feelings of hate, jealousy and revenge. In addition, her mischievous approach may prompt the native to use sexuality in order to obtain control over other people who work in the same surroundings.

A 6th house Lilith may indicate conscious laziness and procrastination, and a person who has it may develop quite a lot of strategies so as to work as less as he can. Such attitudes are affecting also other daily routines, even some connected with health. The native may simply do not care about going to a doctor or taking care of his daily hygiene. Lilith can even make him quite cynical about such matters, and he may not have a problem to renounce such patterns publicly. This placement can make someone hate doctors, be anti-vaccine ideologically and generally frown upon the healthcare system.

In addition, as the 6th house is ruling small animals, the native may have a pet with a rather bad character. As we always copy behaviors from our pets (and they from us), the individual may be highly influenced by some reactions and details of that animal, implementing them in his real life. With this placement, be careful to not enter in a never-ending circle where both you and your pet mutually teach bad behaviors. As you are the conscious part of this relation, behave well towards it, because its difficult traits may be reflections of your own attitude towards it.

The best way of softening the difficult traits of Lilith is consciously changing your approach towards daily patterns. Establish a more structured everyday reality, as any discord Lilith brings is connected with the chaotic series of daily events. Take care of your body and choose healthy sleeping rhythms. Eventually, you will notice that your mind will become clearer, and a lot of negative emotions will gradually dissolve. Lower your pride and become less touchy; not everyone is an enemy at your workplace. Search for the people that mostly inspire you (or at least do not get on your nerves) and start cooperating with them. You will observe yourself, that when you start radiating positive emotions, the other people will treat you better too.

    How do you calculate where Black Moon Lilith is in the chart? On astro.com there’s Lilith the asteroid, h13 Osculating Lunar Apogee (“True” Lilith / Black Moon) and h21 Interpolated Lunar Apogee (Lilith), also called ‘Natural Apogee’. Is it the “Osculating Lunar Agogee” that you’re referring to here? 🙂
