Like any other placement in a chart, Black Moon Lilith is interpreted based on the house and sign she is in and the aspects she makes. But compared to other planets, the interpretation works just a little differently.

For most planets, you can understand houses and signs like a play. Planets are the actors, the sign is the character they play, and the house is the set. In other words, the planet represents a part of your life, the sign is how the planet operates, and the house is the area of life that the planet most affects.

  • The Meaning Of The Black Moon Lilith In Astrology Lilith is one of the dark goddesses, like Isis, Persephone, Hecate, or Kali, expressing the feminine power of the divine creative, transformative force. If we follow their trail back in time, down to the roots to find the source of their darkness, of the fear and negative side they typically represent.
  • Ceres is one of the largest asteroids in our solar system. Located between Mars and Jupiter, it was also one of the first asteroids to be discovered. In astrology, Ceres is considered one of the five Goddess Asteroids, which include Pallas Athena, Juno, Lilith, Vesta, and of course Ceres. Ceres represents nourishment, how we long.
  • This is for the curious-minded Astrologer wanting to delve deep into the rabbit hole of Lilith's many faces in myth, folklore, and astrology. Here we explore her significance in astrology, exploring the Asteroid Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith, and Black Moon Lilith.
  • The Astrology of Black Moon Lilith Black Moon Lilith is not a planet or body, but rather a point, and should not be confused with the asteroid, Lilith. You can look up your Black Moon Lilith sign here, and to find its positions through the years, see the Black Moon Lilith ephemeris (along with White Moon Selena, Lilith’s counterpart).

However, Black Moon Lilith, true to form, works differently. That is because Lilith’s entire story is defined by her relationship with authority. She does not operate independently. She is always reacting. Just like the actual Black Moon point is inherently tied to the movement of the Moon, Black Moon Lilith is inherently tied to the movement of those in power.

So with Lilith, the house placement represents the external forces that make up our Lilith experience. The house shows the source of the pain, or where the Lilith wounds come from. The house is what is outside us.


In contrast, the sign our Black Moon Lilith is in represents the way those outside forces affected us. It describes the type of wound we carry and how we have reacted internally to carrying that wound. Let’s look at an example.

Asc Node Astrology

Say someone has Black Moon Lilith in Virgo in the 4th house. In the 4th house, the wound likely comes from home, parents, or the family of origin. Perhaps the family is controlling or have unreasonable expectations, or perhaps they are explosive, lashing out at anything in their path. So the Black Moon Lilith person learns, in true Virgo fashion, to be perfect and smart and not to make waves. They learn to hide their own shadow to avoid the judgement of those in authority. They become the perfect, responsible little angel. What horoscope goes well with cancer. Thus they create an effective strategy for dealing with power, though they deny a piece of their own soul in the process.

It is common for people to identify more with the house their Black Moon Lilith is in than the sign, which is understandable. It is a lot easier to identify the bastard causing us trouble than it is to talk about how the bastard makes us feel! I always recommend that people start getting in touch with Lilith by getting a good feel for the house position, which is why I started the series on interpreting Lilith by focusing on the houses. In the coming weeks, I’ll be doing the same thing with signs. Put together, this will give you the tools to start getting comfortable with your own Black Moon Lilith.
