Black Moon Lilith in the Sixth House – Champion of the Weak

berlin black moon lilithIf you have Lilith in the 6th house of your chart, her themes will manifest in terms of health, service, and work. You will be tasked with reclaiming your power and standing up for those who need it most.

In traditional astrology, the 6th house is known as the house of Bad Fortune. The 6th house is where things outside our control happen to us. Illness, pain, and disability simply happen sometimes, and no one is to blame. But with Lilith here, you have been blamed for your own misfortune, asked to answer for the unanswerable. You may have experience with ableism or other types of discrimination, and have been expected to overcome insurmountable odds while your challenges were minimized and dismissed.

The 6th house is also associated with common people. This is where we as average, everyday people come into contact with those who have power over us. Bosses, landlords, administrators, etc. In an ideal world, those people would use their power judiciously and look out for us and our needs. But if you have Lilith in the 6th, this is rarely the case. Instead, you are regularly on the receiving end of abuse of power.

With Lilith in the 6th, wounds and trauma can turn inward, very literally making you sick. If your pain and frustration don’t have some kind of outlet, it can become truly debilitating. Luckily, you can put this pain to good use, advocating for the powerless. I know a good number of people with this placement who have done very good work with animals, at-risk youth, and the elderly. Others have become labor organizers and social workers. One way or another, your wounds must take on a higher form.

While there is much more to be said, I’ll leave you with this: You above all can see exactly how power corrupts. You can see the way the weak are stepped upon. You feel their helplessness and outrage. The world needs you to stand up and make things right. To restore order and balance. You have the power to heal us all.

  1. I have this placement and very much relate to your last paragraph. Unfortunately I feel powerless against the powerful, except in taking care of my family. So that’s what I do. And when I can do anything else, I make sure to. But overall, I feel what I am – just another common person. I’m not any more special than anyone else, and even looking back in time, it’s always been this way: the ones in control and the ones who are under their control. I can only do so much. Lilith is with Mars and Pluto in my 6th.

  2. I have that placement, and I don’t really feel like talking about it but would like to relate one example. 13 years ago, I watched a documentary about corporate hog farming called 60 Days to 100 Kilos. Was traumatized and felt sick for weeks afterwards – still do to the extent that I have to make this post.

  3. I can relate to this. I always thought it was my Sun + Jupiter in Pisces in 3rd house. Interesting that Black Moon Lilith is in Gemini in the 6th.

    I have *felt* the suffering of the weak so much that it debilitated me from doing anything out in the world. I did do a ton of volunteering for some decades, but I realized it was producing such a tiny result compared to what was needed in the world so I dropped it. I switched to decades of group prayer and meditation. It felt much better, but no tangible results – just had to have faith that they were happening.

    Seeing this Gemini / 3rd house link is giving me some ideas…

    • I so relate to what you’ve written aspire. Sometimes we simply have to fall back on faith and accept that we’ve done, and continue to do, what we can.

  4. Interesting. In the last few weeks I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix documentaries involving the abuse of power. It’s quite upsetting. Lilith is indeed in my sixth house (in Aries) and I have had major health issues over the years. It’s also crazy that I happened upon this site now, amidst the current documentary watching I mentioned and in my quest to further understand how Lilith affects me.

  5. Why does it feel like wherever we have Lilith or Chiron is precisely where we can’t manifest or do anything about the energy of this house?
    If someone feels this so deeply why is it so hard to do something with it?

  6. I have Lilith in the 6th house, and have spent my entire life working either in the service industry or health care. My husband was disabled. I currently work with the disabled and elderly. So this fits.

  7. Lilith is the only thing in my 6th house. I’m so abused. What did I do??? I’m ready to be done now…I’m so freaking traumatized I don’t dare leave my house. Today is my birthday, and I have no more friends…I’m tired of getting stabbed in the back. Always been a caregiver and usually help anyone who looks to be suffering, but good karma just never comes. I hate my life. My birth chart is so sad…it was right about my abuse as a child, and says I’m most likely to die by my own hand, or from a violent murder. Oh yay. 😭😭😭

    • Oh Katie, I am so sorry. I can feel the pain you’re in. I do want to say that whoever told you about the possible circumstances of your death was not practicing responsibly and is probably wrong. There are just too many factors for anyone to make that prediction.

      And life can get better. If you want to talk, I am here.

  8. I have the question: Lord of 6 is square Lilith.What could it mean? I am like Scherlok Holmes to see the details.Or maybe I am in war with powerful people?

    • Welcome, Marija!

      I think you’re exactly right on both counts. Seeing the whole chart would give more detail, but I would guess that you would be on a quest to fight for the underdog, but have to grapple with authorities to get anything done.

  9. Hello black Moon in Lilith in the 6 house. I have finally come to the point of ….I am done being a victim and I realized I have been a warrior that has been silencened for far too long not just for my in justice so much but done with injustice in general in this world there is way too much. I understand this path my mine is my own. I never was a victim I do blame myself for the injustice done in my life because I finally know who I am. I have been done being silent now since 2017. And you know what…. I will never look back. I can finally and from my heart say I am proud to make that leap in life and to not hold back anymore. I have lost so much opportunity for myself I am not ashamed either . We are human we learn we breathe and we move on. I hope this reaches anyone ready to do the brave step as well peace,love and light.

  10. This is meeeee to a teeee! Feeling blessed that my Sun is in Aries to really have that courage to fight the power abusers in & help others find their own tone of “I AM!” – also my Scorpio Moon helps me embody my Lillith (overall, all parts of me) so I think this is what’s helped me maintain a healthy body & mind – ensuring I hold no shame/guilt. However, this leads me falling in deeper traps of helping others that have lead to physical & mental abuse. Really trying to hone into my ability to see through the ego and lift others up with my Lillith & Mars in Cancer and spread joy more to those that will be more reciprocative! Thank you so much. Grateful that I can refer to this when I need.
