Lilith in 4th House


The 12 Houses of astrology are symbolic of the all the departments that make up human life. The planets and zodiac signs will manifest themselves most strongly in the sphere of life represented by the House in which they fall on your chart. Houses are not "energies" like the elements or planets, nor do they color the expression of energies like the zodiac signs do. The houses are WHERE these energies are most likely to manifest. The houses are the fields of experience, not the experience themselves.

Lilith in 4th House

This placement has a pronounced effect on home and family dynamics. If you were born with Black Moon Lilith in your 4th House, you may be a Lilith figure in your family, or your upbringing may have revolved around another family member who embodied this archetype.

Perhaps you were raised in a strict or repressive household, which imposed harsh consequences for certain behaviors, or led you to feel that you needed to hide your true self to receive care. Or perhaps the atmosphere was more generally marked by power struggles, especially between the sexes.

You may feel like your family’s doormat, or cope by running away. To fully realize this placement, you must heal your wounds by constructing a sanctuary within yourself. Learn to protect your emotions and create a home where your heart is.

Black Moon Lilith represents a dark embodiment of divine feminine power. Fierce, raw, and primal, it’s the side of ourselves that refuses to be tamed, fights for its rights, and owns its desires.

Some may deny or repress these urges, associating them with shame, stigma, and disgrace. Others may overindulge or misuse these appetites through selfishness, destructiveness, or abuse. Meanwhile, others still may veer between these extremes, bottling up and exploding in a cycle of violence and guilt. As with all shadow selves, we must integrate the energies of Black Moon Lilith, and learn to express these parts of our personalities freely, mindfully, and purposefully.
