Lilith in the 10th House

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 10th 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 when the Moon transit is more distant from our planet.

Black Moon Lilith is a rather obscure point of an individual’s natal chart. This topographical extreme point 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 10th house can complicate how an individual appears in the eyes of the others. Lilith is quite visible to the masses around him and will be always present in his image. Yet, as the 10th house is ruled by Capricorn and Saturn, the energy of Lilith blends quite well with their dark traits. Thus, she can be even used quite well in a conscious manner, so that the native acquires fame – even if it is negative. As we all know, a negative advertisement is still marketing, and maybe even the strongest way to promote one’s persona.

These dark traits of Lilith may be connected with disharmonic memories the person has from his parent that was mostly dominant during childhood. The 10th house rules the dominant parent, and usually, it is the chart owner’s father. Lilith in the 10th house despises his authority, and can reach extremes in order to manifest rebellion towards him. A common pattern that can appear, especially in women charts, is hatred towards any men who have similar characteristics like her father.

In addition, such a person can develop wrath towards any type of authority and can be a very difficult worker. He will create problems to his employers, disrespect them and maybe even sabotage them. If the native has a career of his own, he may treat his employees in a vicious way too. This phenomenon is quite common when Lilith squares some malefic planet located in the 6th house.

A 10th house Lilith will create great lust of power and the need to control. The native may even use his sexuality to seduce people of higher status, in order to rise in the social pyramid. Lilith has a lot of seductive traits and characteristics, thus giving strong sexuality to the individual’s career. Yet, Lilith does not develop healthy love affairs, and in case she is activated in one’s job surroundings she will most naturally bring discord.

In some cases, when Lilith is adversely aspected, the native will get involved in scandals. Those scandals can even be of a sexual type, and there will be negative criticism by people of his surroundings. On the other hand, he might achieve all his goals even with the help of such negative criticism. The fuss that is created around his name can make the chart owner even more known and powerful, which later can be used to climb easily higher in the social pyramid.

As the 10th house is the realm of Capricorn, Black Moon Lilith in the 10th house can be cruel and manipulative towards the people she can control. Such a person may more easily step on corpses in order to achieve fame and success, and will not hesitate to backstab someone in his job surroundings.

A 10th house Lilith may indicate a lot of jealousy towards successful people. The native will do detailed research about how someone can become famous, and create his own strategy. These strategic plans will, of course, be secret, and the native may be denying their existence even to close friends. In addition, such strategies may be based on quite dubious moral values, which is also another reason for them remaining clandestine. Of course, one should keep in mind that the 10th house is probably the most noticeable to others, and there is a high risk of having such plans revealed.

Curiously enough, such a placement is perfect for artistic performers. There is probably no better placement for dancers, as their raw sexuality radiates through Lilith in the eyes of the audience. In their movements, dark seduction can be easily noticed; Lilith adores to control sexually the minds of others. Obviously, Lilith in the 10th house is a great placement for politics too. With good aspects, she can do miracles; with difficult ones though, she can even contribute to one’s fall through scandal and revelation of secrets.

The best way of softening the difficult traits of Lilith is consciously changing your approach towards the dark energy she carries. A necessary procedure is to forgive any people from childhood that gave rough archetypes and find ways to channel any negative energy into constructive actions. 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 cunning; plotting and scheming is not the only way to reach success. You will eventually observe that when you start radiating positive emotions, the masses will start following you through being inspired and not provoked.

Damn that is so true. And I think that what makes it hards for me, in my experience with my 10th house lilith, is exactly the pride. I also have 1st house leo and the sole thought of myself as a manipulative person is so embarassing. It’s like “me? how can you say that! I try so hard to be a good person!”. Boo hoo. There it is again, victimization. For me is like a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge shame, it tarnishes my image even to my myself, and I would say specially for myself. So, yeah, pride is definitely my greatest obstacle. It turns the simple growing and being more free and happy into a “walk of shame”.


Thanks, very clear description. It fits. On showing the aspects to this point, two yod’s came up. A hole new view on the dynamics of my horoscope. Gratitude.


Incredibly accurate descriptions here. Lilith is very active in my chart but I had not especially considered the house placement, & what do you know. Looks like this one will follow me wherever I go unless I can utilize it & put my own spin on it – like in the example for being a dancer. Thanks for sharing your insight.
