Lilith is the apogee of the moon that when found in your natal chart, represents what type of feminist you are. But before we continue, you must know there are 4 versions of Lilith in the sky.
There is the physical Asteroid Lilith, The Black Moon Lilith (Occupying two separate placements in your chart under the names of True Lilith [or oscillating Lilith] & Mean Lilith), and then there is Dark Moon Lilith (Waldemath Black Moon).
I use the Black Moon Lilith most often in my readings, so what I have listed below are all the descriptions for that particular placement. Of course, there are the other versions of Lilith, but I feel that we often get so bogged down by how many different placements there are, in general, and I don’t want to add to that in this post.
Mean Lilith is is the easiest Lilith to find in your chart. Go to Astro.com, click “Free Horoscopes” and then “Extended Chart Selection”, scroll down and add Lilith under “Additional Objects”.
Black Moon Lilith (both Mean and Oscillating) is the ultimate feminist. People who have her in prominent places in their natal chart, such as conjunct Ascendant or Sun, tend to embody the quintessential strong woman.
What I have realized recently about this “strong feminist woman” is that in this day and age, it’s very easy to confuse her for the man-hating, histrionic, bloggers of the new century (I’m not trying to rile you up, if that’s you, it’s just not Lilith’s doing in your chart-it’s something completely different, so let’s not pretend.) Lilith LOVES men. She fights FOR men. She wants men to have a great role in a woman’s life, so that the women can be free to create and inspire. She also LOVES all women, with all different views. She fights for women, and the feminine roles that give power to a woman.
She is a feminist, but one out of love. Yes, she loves gender roles (well, not the Aquarius Lilith), even if she herself will take on more masculine feats throughout her life. There is balance to Lilith, which some may see is being enigmatic: She fights, but then she loves. She kills and conquers evil, but will bask in the joys of human life. She will work hard with the best of them, but will let a man rub her feet, while pregnant. She stays home with her children & creates empires out of her basement, while her husband works the steady job. You fight against her wants in life, and she will kill you, make no mistake.
Black Moon’s mantra seems to be equality of the sexes but not to be treated as a man, nor superior or inferior:
― Matthew Henry
She doesn’t always fight for women to have the rights of men (Capricorn and Aries Lilith will disagree). She fights for women to have their own separate rights. She fights for a woman’s right to breathe, to live and to do as she herself desires. Some women with strong Lilith find themselves in supportive roles to their husband, cooking and cleaning, and they LOVE it. Some men with strong Lilith find themselves on the front lines, fighting the battles so that their women can create, and be fulfilled emotionally. Some strong Lilith women march on Washington. How Lilith plays out for you, depends on your birth chart. What kind of person are you? Lilith cannot tell you that. The Sign Lilith falls into, tells you WHAT you will fight for, and the House will tell you WHERE you will fight.
Read the SHORT DESCRIPTIONS below:
*BEWARE of anyone with their Lilith conjunct, square or oppose one of your personal placements. These people probably feel deeply
in love wronged by you, and will wig out accordingly.*
Black Moon Lilith in 1st/Aries: Inherently strong-willed, due to the strong need to protect yourself from those that want to take all that you love, away from you. You believe women should be independent, and take charge of their own lives, and you love to lead by example. You see Alphas as important to the world, and should be both men and women. Not surprising, you will butt heads with male Alphas–in that way you will probably despise Aries-type men.
Black Moon Lilith in 2nd/Taurus: You protect your security and your belongings with vigilance and ruthlessness. You want to be considered beautiful, and desire a lavish lifestyle. You believe that women should be adored, feel attractive, and still find time for the simple expensive pleasures in life. You will work hard in life for money, so that you can accomplish your goals yourself, and desire other women to do the same. You probably will despise Taurus-type men, because they are cold, rude, and do not effing adore you.
Black Moon Lilith in 3rd/Gemini: You express yourself in a dry, calculating and sometimes mean way, but you play it off like it’s funny. It’s just the how you have learned to deal with those in life who try to silence you. Your duty as a woman or man, is to fight for the woman’s right to speak, and to give voices to the silenced and/or emotionally immature (children, victims). You probably will despise Gemini-type men, because they talk over, and try to silence, you.
Black Moon Lilith in 4th/Cancer: You don’t want anyone touching your things, or infiltrating your life. It feels like an invasion, always. You may not mind being barefoot and pregnant, and will fight for your right to do it. Just as you will fight for anyone to find love and nurturing, no matter what they want to do. You also are the most likely to fight against weak men, you believe they should all be strong, Alphas. In this way you will probably despise Cancer-type men, as they nurture and support, like Betamales.
Black Moon Lilith in 5th/Leo: You’re passionate about your creations and what you’ve made. You believe women should get to create, and be young and free. Your life goal is to make sure each woman you know is confident and strong, and willing to put their heart into their work. You probably will despise Leo-type men, because they lack humility, and would rather make time for their own creations, instead of supporting women.
Black Moon Lilith in 6th/Virgo: Harboring anger towards another person can make you actually physically ill, so you normally will find them to fight it out. You are the type of person who will “do it all”, and see no reason why you need anyone to help you. You may spend a lot of your time, empowering women to work hard in business, and take care of their homes–you know, “do it all”. You probably will despise Virgo-type men, since they try to “do it all” for you.
Black Moon Lilith in 7th/Libra: You see relationships as agonizing torture, but when you find someone to love, you will be their warrior and protector. You will fight for equal rights, and justice for all humans, as you cannot live knowing anyone, or woman, is being discriminated against. You tend to root for the underdog, and might believe those in power, should share the wealth. You probably will despise Libra-type men, because their opposing viewpoints are just too much for you.
Black Moon Lilith in 8th/Scorpio: You have at one time, used sex as a weapon to destroy. Although, when sex was used against you, it hurt on a very deep psychological level that you have never gotten over it. For that reason, you fight to protect women and innocents that have been taken advantage of sexually and psychologically, so they may have a better fate than you. You desire others to be open and honest with you, so that you may help them. You probably will despise Scorpio-type men, because they are not forthcoming with their truths, and may be sexually manipulative.
Black Moon Lilith in 9th/Sagittarius: Intelligence is the greatest defense against anyone. You never want to be taken off guard, and so it’s very important to you that you are educated. You will fight for women to have an education, and to be given the ability to travel and culture themselves, as you believe that is what makes a woman truly free. You are also very competitive with anyone in your field. You probably will despise Sagittarius-type men, because they are always trying to compete against you.
Black Moon Lilith in 10th/Capricorn: You take lack of respect at the workplace hard, because you feel that no one works harder than you. You are not nurturing or mothering, and believe that woman who stay home are weak. You fight for power, and will ensure that woman everywhere know you stand for their them in the workplace. Of all the Lilith placements, this is the one that may face restrictions or even imprisonment for standing up, and fighting. You probably will despise Capricorn-type people of the opposite sex, because they choose to take power over you.
Black Moon Lilith in 11th/Aquarius: You believe women should be open with their bodies and love, and will fight for women to do so. You abhor gender roles and what people believe you should do. You are rebel against the stereotypical feminine, while embracing your own power, and the power of unique women. You have great goals and dreams for your life, and refuse to let anyone take those away from you. You want to find a place to stand to lead other women in a revolution. You probably will despise Aquarius-type men, because their own goals tend to crush a woman’s.
Black Moon Lilith in 12th/Pisces: You have a hard time setting boundaries for yourself and others, and may expect others to set them so you don’t have to. You believe that women should be loved unconditionally, even if it appears to be impossible. You want men to take the lead in life, so you can be free to create and dream. You have a great ability to blend in with all types of people, and want all women to experience what you have in life. You can keep a lot of your feminist energy within yourself, which may make you seem uncaring, when in reality you desire greatly to heal other women and do when you get to know them. You probably will despise Pisces-type men because they don’t know how to guide your energy.
