Lilith in the 7th House

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.

Before exploring the attributes of Lilith in the 7th 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.

Having Lilith in the 7th house can complicate an individual’s marriage or long relationships. The native is in need of uniting with someone darker than him. Lilith makes them feel attracted to people of a mischievous character and dubious morality. 7th house people are often very kind and naïve and therefore search for the exact opposite in order to balance their own behaviors.

This is created by a subconscious need to see the dark traits of Lilith in other people so that they do not need to manifest through the native himself. Thus, it is quite natural that he is turning towards people with a strongly emphasized Lilith in their charts. For example, their significant others may have Lilith in the 1st house or conjunct the Ascendant, which is symmetrically an opposite situation to the native’s one. Alternatively, their partner’s Lilith can be in conjunction with important personal planets, thus granting them obscure attributes. Yet, these are not some rules that always are valid. The partner might be expressing his darkness through other ways too. Tough aspects between Pluto, Saturn and the Moon seem to be the most common in giving such dark characteristics.

Of course, Lilith in the 7th house in a natal chart can be quite tricky. The native is having his life gates open for inviting individuals who may harm him. In some occasions, the chart owner might be even enjoying difficult relationships with people that might even repulse him. With hard aspects, he might receive pleasure in feeling victimized. Yet, a frequent pattern that appears is the native trying to soften the difficult character of his spouse or partner. He may feel an internal need to turn the sinner into a saint, to tame the wild beast and make it a lamb. In case that Lilith is positively aspected, the odds can be on the native’s side and help him succeed.

Of course, such transformations are not the easiest thing to happen. Lilith in the 7th house indicates that one’s partners may have extremely strong sexual instincts, a rebellious character, and even self-destructive tendencies. In any occasion, such unions are rather problematic and usually demand from the native to invest a lot of effort in accepting the difficult parts of their partner’s psyche.

In addition, as the 7th house is ruling one’s business partners, the chart owner should be even more careful than when choosing his beloved ones. Failing in love or marriage can have emotional consequences; yet failing in business can be even more catastrophic. It is not wise to collaborate with people you already feel that can take advantage of you. A seventh house Lilith may bring a snake to your business doorstep; consider well before uniting your powers with it.

We should not forget that the 7th house is the realm of one’s open enemies, and Lilith will make them quite vicious. Moreover, if she is adversely aspected, be sure that you’re your ex-partners (no matter if in business or in love) will not hesitate to turn against you after your relations end.

Of course, Lilith can also become a great teacher. The difficulties that she can bring in the native’s relations will definitely make him a stronger person. He will eventually become conscious about the problematic people he attracts, and also develop his own dark side, which is usually repressed.

When Lilith resides in the 7th house, it can very frequently bring divorce. Bad aspects to her indicate troubles concerning the procedure of getting divorced, and usually, bring matters to court. When the native’s marriage involves having children, this placement will most probably lead to intense battles concerning their custody. The same pattern appears in business partnerships; the dissolution of the established company may need to pass through law and can be a lengthy procedure.
