I used to become extremely offended when someone would state their opinion of astrology not being real. Wait, it wasn’t the opinion of it not being real, but the further claims of how I am believing in a fairytale. It was not until I completed shadow work that I realized that it wasn’t the nasty manner in how they delivered their opinion that offended me, but because of the lack of my own self-assurance with astrology. To combat that feeling, I delved more into its origins. It was there where I found its purpose, where I found out more about myself, and where I found the reason why I leaned into it so. Astrology gave me the template I needed to heal my divine feminine and walk into my power. However, this isn’t about astrology in its totality, but about how the Black Moon Lilith relates to you in your journey to your higher self. Shall we?
Who Is Lilith
Typically, Lilith is associated with derogative terms that devalue her power. It comes as no surprise that Lilith is represented as rebellious in patriarchal contexts. However, not all cultures and religions view Lilith as an unsavory Goddess. The Black Moon Lilith is a divine feminine archetype that is cloaked in mystery, which is fitting because of its relation to the shadow self. Lilith represents liberation, freedom, and autonomy.
Black Moon Lilith
Black Moon Lilith is not an actual planet in the sky; it is represented by a dark void of the moon. She is connected to your inner shadow, most importantly the why behind where you put your foot down and express your anger.
As the shadow placement, it is a way to reveal the parts of yourself that you are ashamed of expressing to others.
Lilith relates to your sensuality and sexuality, as well as how you choose to (or don’t) go against social norms. Here you can find your unique sensual nature and your seductive powers. When you are confident in your shadow, you feel empowered. However, when you have not accepted your shadow, you feel exposed.
Your Black Moon Lilith is not the same as your Sun Sign. You will need your birth date, birth time and birth location (city and state). It is a completely different sign, so click here to find your Black Moon Lilith and read from that perspective. Be aware that astrology is a template that can be manipulated through life experiences. Take what you need and leave the rest.
