There are many ways to interpret Lilith, and it is most often approached as the manifestation of female Mars closer to Earth than Pluto. In a way, it is a dark side of the feminine role in all of us, a sexual taboo, and when accented in a chart it will inevitably speak of gender discrimination, someone’s inability to take any orders, and the need to set free from prejudice and pressure of the surrounding society. By some astrological approaches, there are four or even five Lilith related points in each chart. They are:
- Black Moon Lilith (Mean)
- Dark Moon Lilith (Waldemath Black Moon)
- Osculating Lilith (True)
- Asteroid Lilith
- Algol (fixed star from the constellation of Perseus)
Asteroid Lilith and fixed star Algol are the only actual physical bodies, while the Waldemath Black Moon may or may not be a real body. Being surrounded by Liliths in all forms, we must ask ourselves if the impact of Lilith on our lives might be much more profound than we think.
Who Was Lilith?
Lilith was Adam’s first wife, his partner before Eve ever came to exist, who was an equal to man. While Eve is mostly depicted as this curvy, motherly figure of obedience and blind respect, Lilith was everything uncontained, uncontrolled, attractive, sexual, and disobedient, showing will of her own and impossible to tame. Being exiled from Heaven due to her character and the trouble she created for Adam, Lilith became bitter, hurt with injustice, and turned into a witchlike creature, best presented through something similar to the role of Medusa in Greek mythology.
Lilith in Astrology
Symbol of Lilith
The clarity of this symbol must leave you dazzled and in search for answers, for there is no similar connection in symbols in our chart. As if sexual isn’t part of the divine feminine and as if a mother cannot be anyone’s lover to begin with. While supporting aspects of Venus with the Moon can give a certain flow between these roles on a personal level, we have to understand that the mundane image of feminine isn’t supportive of this connection for as long as Lilith isn’t accepted for its natural role.
