If 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.
