Lilith in the 9th House

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 9th 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 9th house is not the best placement, as most astrologers claim she is in fall in the sign of Sagittarius. Indeed, the Jupiterian energies that rule this house are quite difficult to blend well with her dark powers. As the ninth house is considered the house of philosophy, Lilith can make one’s personal views fairly dogmatic, and give a lot of obscure traits. People with such a placement may use their religious beliefs or spiritual ideas in order to impose them on masses and even control them. There can be an addiction to power connected with teaching. Such an individual may indulge in drinking other people’s energy through transforming their beliefs or just shuttering stable beliefs that others have. This is not necessarily negative because the chart owner can be a radical person who actually helps the society progress through destroying stereotypes. Possible roles that such a person can play are that of the troll, the cynic, the taboo-breaker and possibly uses black humor.

The 9th house is ruling higher education, and Lilith’s effect is to neglect the principles that education can offer. The individual does not recognize the universities, institutions, and professors as authority, and will frequently abandon studying. This, of course, does not mean to abandon learning. Such a native will prefer to learn by himself, and quickly turn towards more practical areas of life such as work. Indeed, wisdom gained through practice can be more beneficial for him than anything theoretical. In case that the native chooses to finish his studies, he will be constantly nervous and distracted, being even a bad influence for other students around him. His rebellious character cannot accept being put in patterns and borders that a higher authority imposes.

A ninth house Lilith person will not hesitate to spread a misleading idea and even create a wave of people that will follow it. If your natal Lilith has difficult aspects with Mars or Mercury, be very careful of what you are teaching other people. Also, if your natal Lilith squares a planet in the 12th house, your tongue will definitely create some hidden enemies; generally try to think a lot before starting preaching a certain idea which you know can create discord.

Lilith in the 9th house can create irritations connected with distant travels, and the chart owner might be approached by foreigners who have a strong Lilith in their chart. This can bring unexpected situations and power games between them, as the native will despise in them some negative traits he knows he has too.

Black Moon Lilith’s presence in the 9th house of an individual can have an influence on his style of writing, or in special situations lead him towards publishing radical scripts. He may be drawn towards writing dark poems and literature, involving deep sexuality in his writings or elsehow expressing very deep and archetypical layers of his soul. Lilith can even trigger sick imagination, which will be considered quite radical and taboo by other people. This natal aspect can aid a lot anyone who is interested in alternative literature, as his works are definitely not for the masses. Except for a writer, such a person could also become a publisher, and even achieve great success if Jupiter or Venus are present. Of course, any possible conjunction with Mercury further enhances any attempt of that.

Another characteristic that Lilith in the 9th house can give, is making the individual a state-of-the-arts liar. Any person with such a placement can perfectly masquerade his lies under his words, diverting the other people’s attention and generally be a master of deceit. His lies can even be having a strong theoretical background, a whole philosophy behind them. This will make them be easily believed, especially from the masses.

Black Moon Lilith in the 9th house can lead to sexual adventures with foreigners or with people of other religions. In any case, the native may be making long and distant trips for sexual reasons, have sexual partners in faraway countries and maybe even pass secretly a lot of time in a distant place.

In case you have Lilith in the ninth house, try to think before creating a cult around an idea. Your ability to influence others with your words is very strong, so choose consciously and wisely before you do it. It is always better to express your darkness through ways that will not have negative effects on others.

Lilith in the 9th house in Libra, conjunct my Midheaven….
I used to be a good student until I went to College. Now, I just want to give up my studies in order to work even though everybody (including me) think it’s a bad idea. I’m also currently dating a foreigner (it felt like destiny when we met).


My son has this, he is studying to be a commercial airline pilot. He would not do well in college…for all the reason stated above. However his thirst for knowlege in a practical sense is off the charts. So It was a very quick twist of fate he decided to go to flight school the same year he was graduating high school, all because of a post I saw on Reddit. He is a terrible liar, but he is accidentally secretive. He just doesnt see a need to update me on his life lol. He has never had a girlfriend but i know he will meet someone in his pilot travels. He is very sweet and yes dogmatic when his mind is made up. But he is very receptive to being a good person. He loves strange genres like horror anime and sad anime. Funny how such an obscure placement can say so much


Not bothering with formal education is definitely me but I think this is wrong for life is difficult without formal qualifications. However I don’t think I’m a state-of-the-art liar


My 9th house Aries BML conjuncts my Taurus Midheaven, sextiles my Aquarius sun in 7th and squares 12th House Chiron Pluto conjunct. I have 2 post graduate degrees and was a speech and drama teacher. I’ve publishe a book, have very little foreign travel but did have a 3 yr relationship with a foreigner. I ‘m not a stellar liar however I can very successfully work the system….got my foreigner a green card. My south node is in the 9th at 2 degrees.

I feel the same about education. I like learning on my own. I don’t resonate with some of this though. I can’t lie worth a damn and I don’t like misleading people at all! I am very powerful with my words and writing though so it’s important I really think out what I am communicating.
