Black Moon Lilith in the Third House – Cassandra

Collier priestessIf you have Lilith in the third house of your chart, her themes will manifest in terms of communication, community, and religion. You will have a deep need to be heard and understood by those around you and will be driven create a community of peers who truly hear you.

In traditional astrology, the third house is known as The Goddess. Standing in opposition to the ninth house’s big-R Religion, the third house deals with little-r religion. This is about the daily act of spirituality and devotion. With Lilith here, you will reject all the small ways you are meant to conform in order to be acceptable. Instead you will create your own version of what it means to be good.

Lilith in the third house also brings issues with community, peers, and siblings. This is another placement that tends to be scapegoated and made an outcast. The people who are supposed to see you as their equal will instead suck you dry and then blame you for failing to do your part. You will spend a good part of your life struggling to find “your people.”

Finally, Lilith in the third house tends to create something of a Cassandra complex. You will try your whole life to be heard and to communicate your truth. But somehow, it never fully comes through. You feel misunderstood and diminished as your voice is silenced.

There is much more to say about this placement, which I consider one of the more significant. But my best advice is this: stand up and speak. Cultivate a stentorian voice and a brave heart. Let yourself be seen in all your messy authenticity. In doing this, you will find both your people and your place in this life. Speak out.

Black Moon Lilith in the Third House – Cassandra — 10 Comments

  1. Lilith conjunct Sun in Leo. 3rd from my 8th house Gemini Moon. I want to be heard! I want to roar and rage! It’s taken me many years to recognize when to open my mouth, and when to keep my mouth shut. I often err on the side of caution. 😏

    I remember in my younger years, I would cry, “What about me?!?” to my then husband.

  2. Thank you, Midara, for sharing your knowledge about Lilith. It is not a topic written about often, and definitely helps in these trying times to recognize where we ‘rage.’

  3. 3rd house Lilith conjunct Chiron conjunct Saturn in Pisces. Not being heard, yes and no; I just stood up for myself last week, wasn’t really very skillful about it because I felt hurt, but what came back made me realize I may just have spoken to a wall; and even though I felt I defended myself, I was being portrayed as the person attacking. … Outsider, yes, from early childhood on as imposed by my siblings. I have been labeled all kind of things, including stupid, in addition to dealing with people projecting their sh** on me, constantly. But also, the tongue and quill are very sharp and even though I have often been made feel guilty for speaking up, doing so always feels liberating. Onward and upward! 🙂

    Story of my life. Thank you for this wonderful insight Midara. Never knew I needed to know things about My Lilith, but now it all has more sense.

  5. Lilith in the 3rd at 7′ Pisces. Amazed at how true what Midara wrote rings. Astrology still has the power to astound me after 30 years reading around it.

  6. I’m really enjoying your writings on Lilith, Midara! There’s so much to think about; I keep coming back to the articles and the comments.
    Thanks

  7. Lilith in 3rd house Aquarius (equal. With Placidus its in 2nd house – but I have a hard time identifying with Placidus placements). I stuttered from about age 7 through 14 – a debilitating impossibility to communicate in public, to answer the phone, ask for directions/help, reply to teachers’ requests for a public answer in the classroom, or speak to any member of the opposite sex. I was magically healed around the time of my first sexual experience.

  8. Your Black Moon Lilith articles are rich with application. I’ve returned to this one about Lilith in the 3rd to track and apply her energy as she transits my natal chart: spanning Pisces and then Aries over the next few months. It’s helpful for me to draw on the energy to “be heard” and “Let yourself be seen in all your messy authenticity. In doing this, you will find both your people and your place in this life. Speak out.” BML is natally a 1st House placement, at this stage of my life it helps so much to work with Lilith’s wobble (changeable nature) as a vibrant oddity to encourage as I ripened into an authentic old woman.
    Thanks so much for this chunk of Lilith astrology to chew on, digest, grow on.
