<from Interpreting Lilith by DG Jay (1981) & specifically about the dark Moon Lilith, but I think can be applied to all the Lilith forms ~ mem>

With Lilith in Virgo there is an exaggerated anxiety concerning detail, de to the magnification of the abstract qualities of the mind. The intensity to apply technique is obvious in the sometimes irrational irritability those close to him encounter, when he is concentrating. Acute sensitivity to detail causes him at times literally to feel beaten before he begins a project. The exaggerated conscientiousness that Lilith creates in Virgo gives rise to unreasonable fears, thus emotional anxiety about the ability to handle it.

This may be screened (even to himself) by much time given to elaborate preparations that are out of proportion to the task. Therapeutic relaxation is found in hobbies that call for intricate application of small parts or pieces.

Amplified concern about the minute details involved in a matter that he fears may be beyond him, underlies a carefully hidden defeatist attitude. This may be outwardly compensated for by an air of complacency or proclaimed disinterest. He finds apparent security in rationalization whenever he fears being inadequate to the precision or details involved. Reverence for a job or work perfectly done by others stamps his own exaggerated desire of such expression.

Though he may inwardly feel overwhelmed by the myriad details necessary to run daily life smoothly to his satisfaction, if such an abstract as trigonometry for instance were necessary for a health, creative or social work that he performs professionally, he is apt to breeze right through it. This is not at all the contradiction it sounds like, because it is the vocational factor of detachment that makes the difference. The exaggerated perfectionism is more likely to be negative in the subjective personal areas of his life because of the emotional considerations that distract & in this case, negate his concentration.

    Lilith gives more positive result when expressing detail through the vocation, because of the detachment possible for him under these circumstances from personalities. There is only the job at hand to be considered then, in which case the precision drive is remarkably well released.

    To alliviate emotional tension or simply to relax, he may often find himself carefully counting things, ANY thing, just to satisfy the need for orientation to detail that has an emotionally calming effect. Otherwise he is known to overstate detail upon detail for repetition, repetition, repetition, during the times when he is either in fear of being distracted, or the conversation is upsetting to his concentration. It then tends to become a one-sided conversation, a monologue, allowing for no interruptions as he orients himself to the detail considerations he deeply needs in order to become detached ~ relaxed.

    For the intellectual type or extrovert, this sign placement of Lilith forces forward or creates precision skills of note. For the emotional type or introvert, the anxiety it creates about inefficiency being exposed can become detrimental to the health due to nerves, unless a sufficient outlet through the vocation is found. It may take the form of a compelling medical or health consciousness that finds highly skilled outlet in one of the many health related fields.

    The preoccupation with numbers may release a mathematical precision that can blossom into a highly technical vocational skill. Deep respect for technical efficiency is a noticable signature of one who has Lilith in Virgo.

    When this character magnification is not compensated fo, through hobbies demanding minute application of detail that relax his anxieties on the subjective personal level, the problems incurred, from the standpoint of others, are chalked up to eccentricities or odd ego trips. Actually, they are this raw perfectionistic urge from deep within that he is unable to release that explains the irritable uneasiness, or as some might say, "his sensitive spots."

    Lilith in Virgo usually manifests well in this detached sign, once a profession or an area of the profession is satisfactorily found for the technical-needs release, as exemplified by astrologers Rupert Gleadow, Elbert Benjamine & Donald Bradley. Any of the Virgo rulerships make excellent vocations if the rest of the chart permits.

    • I have Black Moon Lilith & asteroid Lilith in Virgo, 6th house ~ I can personally relate to this interpretation VERY well!

      love all-ways,

      • Lilith in the 6th house

        These people are at their best when working under conditions that allow plenty of room for independence, imagination, ingenuity & decisiveness. They are among the most resourceful & conscientious workers you will find. They have an amazing eye for detail within work that challenges the mind or makes use of their strong imagination.

        When positive, they can successfully maintain a throughly helpful, but nonetheless impersonal, relationship with those who share their working environment. They prefer to leave emotional types, personal matters & opinions totally aside while 'on the job' because of the impossible distractions it creates for them personally. They feel strangely trapped otherwise, threatened, or overshadowed when personalities, bringing emotional overtones rather than work abstractions, dominate the atmosphere.

        They can be any type of personality otherwise, depending on the chart, but while working, are more inspired (inspiring) & gratified when they are mentally or creatively preoccupied to the exclusion of all else. They take the independence & perogatives they need to maintain their sensitivity to what they are doing & not to the atmosphere around them.

        Under ordinary working conditions, where simple routines are repeatedly carried out allowing for little or no outlet of the creative intellect or imagination, people with Lilith in the 6th get absolutely no satisfaction from what they do. In fact, quite he opposite is true. They feel frustrated & are apt to develop strong resentment, which eventually is undermining to their health or creates work related problems due to negative or defeatist attitudes.

          Lilith creates incredible sensitivity to precision; detail; executive usefulness; and an exaggerated conscientiousness that is all out of proportion for simple or ordinary routine work. That is, unless some outlet is found where where the mental juices or their inventive imagination can flow. There is otherwise too much time for personal preoccupations. The unreleased imagination on their more productive mental level, then turns the strong critical powers inward to give rise to illness; imagined slights from co-workers; and in some cases an unreasonable preoccupation with health-care measures that border on hypochondria, if in fact they do not become hypochondriacs.

          In the 6th, Lilith creates tension concerning technicalities, due tot the magnification of the perfectionistic drive. Unless this one works in a position where there is sufficient outlet for the mental precision & remarkable creative ingenuity, they find it impossible to become sufficiently detached in order to rise above the personal (or petty) things.

          They are natural executives, given the chance. Otherwise, these people can become the hermits, trouble-makers, sirens or the Don Juans of the office, with something distinctly uncomfortable about their personalities, as those around them can tell you.

          The magnified work consciousness, when unsatisfied, seeds a nagging sense of uselessness they feel, or a carefully guarded resentment. They sense that an important innovative part of themselves is missing in what they do. It accounts for sudden irrational behavior, rudeness, coldness or in the more timid types it may take the form of a health upset. This one may be unreasonably sensitive, or so strongly distant, that others around him or her cannot escape being affected.

          When negative, job insecurity is exaggerated no matter the position held. They secretly face being replaced by those around them, because egoism, negative attitudes orwork simply for routine gain magnifies a feeling of being expendable. They will not trust or confide in anyone.

          It is the factor of detachment that makes the difference. There can be many job changes until this one learns to depersonalize, in which case he discovers in himself the abandon to ambitiously seek or begin working toward a position he knows he can qualify for. This one will gravitate then quite naturally to work that takes advantage of his precision, the management or creative talents he has to offer. Lilith is extreme, either way.

            There is a talent for unusual services, depending on the chart, for work in the psychic fields, parapsychology or any of the offbeat occupations. They thrive on the challenge & do not particularly care about its acceptability if they feel it has useful substance or satisfies an appetite for the bizarre.

            When early work attitudes are superficial, they can for instance, be happy & successful in their college work, but put off graduation one way or another in order to stay in the mental climate. They would rather not face the prospect of routine work & be entirely unconscious they are doing it. There are those among them who may find themselves attracting easy romantic involvements on the job, as Lilith creates a disarming magnetism in the house it occupies It overcomes a sickening sense of facelessness for a time, but it will only end up in further frustration.

            In positive charts these people are highly intelligent, usually executive workers capable of the kind of detachment or 'cool' that makes for excellent critical powers & efficiency.

            For employers with Lilith in the 6th it is wise to remember that employees are at their best in their jobs when personal resourcefulness is stimulated & allows for the independent spirit.

            In a male chart, female employees are the 'liberated' types (career oriented) & ambitious. Never underestimate this. They can become undermining & quite negative to you if they are subjected to a secondary role because of gender, either actually or by attitude. Recognize this or you will probably wish you had.

              Mary, the guy I am involved with has lilith in virgo in 8th house. The counting and repetition part is correct for him. When he studies, he likes to repeat the same sentence 30 times.

              Do you think you have hard time to commit to a job or someone? I read somewhere that lilith in virgo has problem with commitment.
              • I have asteroid & Black Moon Lilith in Virgo, 6th house ~

                I wouldn't say that I "would not want to commit to anything" ~ it's not really that I'm lacking the will ~ but I do think that I lack a "way" there ~ the longest I've lasted in a job is 3.5 years ~ although, for the most part, my jobs have been pleasant experiences which have added much to my life ~ I'm just not the kind of person who settles into a comfortable career ~ things happen ~ I move on ~ sometimes I am a bit jealous of those who manage to stay in the same place for longer & the stability that that seems to provide ~ but I love my life too ~ even if it makes some (& even me, sometimes) nervous with its erratic movement

                same goes for my love life ~ focusing on commitment seems self-defeating ~ thing work when they work ~ forcing relationships doesn't seem authentic ~ I'm loyal & sentimental to a fault ~ but if I have to keep pushing, I feel that the relationship is already over & it's best for everyone involved if I move on ~ obviously, I'm not married, never have been & am not really interested in it (I was NOT the kind of girl who ever fantasized about some kind of "perfect wedding") ~ but I'm not against it either ~ if it happens, it happens ~ no biggie

                love all-ways,
                mem
