Imagine the cosmos conveys a story, and astrology is a language that brings words to what often goes unsaid. It’s not that the planets are doing anything to us; we get to choose the words we put on the pages of our lives. Instead of thinking about astrology as a nonfiction fact, appreciate the fictional narrative it conveys.
We can imagine that the celestial bodies are characters, and the Zodiac is the setting. By exploring the themes occurring now and comparing them to historical periods, we gain context and understanding.
Mythology, folklore, ancient religions and history convey the power of the Moon, the Sun, and various aspects of space because these celestial bodies were the first versions of Gods known to humans. We don’t need to worship them today or subscribe to some pre-existing beliefs. Still, the celestial landscape is worth exploring. -Analogies, Energies & Celestial Bodies
Astrology is an ancient school of thought running deeper than Sun signs and horoscopes. There are many aspects, celestial bodies, and archetypes to explore. My favorite symbolism to explore is Black Moon Lilith. Discovering her energy was a total game-changer for me. Lilith’s symbolism runs deeper than just astrology. She’s present in various myths, legends, and mystical teachings. Let’s explore what exactly is Black Moon Lilith, her story, and how we can unleash this energy.
From a technical perspective, Black Moon Lilith is the Moon’s apogee, which essentially means she’s the Moon’s orbit’s farthest point from the Earth. Essentially Black Moon Lilith isn’t a celestial body. Instead, she’s a point in the sky, and she’s the deepest distance the Moon travels from the Earth.
In western astrology, the Moon represents our feminine nature. It’s connected to the water on our planet and governs the water within us. These are our emotions, feelings, and intuitions. Black Moon Lilith represents where we have pushed those aspects away.
She’s the Moon’s farthest point from Earth. She represents the repressed divine feminine energy on this planet and within each of us.
Lilith is the one we call “too much.” In our societies, we witness many ways that being a full expression of ourselves invites in shame or exile.
Too powerful. -Excerpt from Analogies, Energies & Celestial Bodies
Setting Her Free
Throughout history, patriarchy and masculine energy have dominated humanity. However, recent astrology transits are re-writing the story.
This year Mars retrograde connected with Black Moon Lilith, symbolizing an unleashing and reclamation of our personal power. In Spring 2021, Black Moon Lilith will align with Uranus, the planet of revolution, illumination, and evolution. These transits are unleashing Black Moon Lilith’s energy and bringing change on a massive scale. We are all invited to reclaim the power of our innate feminine natures, regardless of our gender.
Black Moon Lilith is no longer forced to stay tucked away behind bars. Now is the time for her to get loud and proud. Black Moon Lilith is our primal force, she’s creation itself. Anyone who has given birth knows how messy it can be.
Black Moon Lilith doesn’t want to stay neat and tidy. She gets her hands dirty and feels all that life has to offer. She wants us to embrace all of our emotions, feelings, and intuitions; because the sensitivities the world has taught us to shut off are turning back on.
As we connect to our emotions, we receive fuel that can propel us forward. Black Moon Lilith is that primal force of creation, and she wants to move through each of us.
Where are we holding her back?
Where are you holding yourself back?
Where are we hiding our feelings and emotions?
Where are you stopping yourself from feeling?
Now is the time to proudly pour those emotions out.
When we acknowledge our feelings and validate ourselves, we are no longer looking to others to fulfill our needs. Black Moon Lilith’s symbolism is sovereign. She follows her instincts and trusts herself. That’s why she is a threat to the systems of Earth. She doesn’t trust the external world because it’s shut her away for so long. Instead, she lives in the hearts of the fearless, including those who are brave enough to admit they are scared.
She doesn’t need us to be perfect; she loves a hot mess when she sees one. For centuries Black Moon Lilith has been told that she’s too much, too loud, too big, too skinny, too open… the list goes on and on.
If you’ve ever been told you’re too much, now is the time to know this was never your fault.
Black Moon Lilith is the archetype that has been erased from the mainstream narrative because she shakes up the status quo. She’s the one who is angry, chaotic, and even volatile. At times she wants revenge because of all that she’s experienced.
Symbolically speaking, she’s our ancient rage. She’s the repressed Divine Feminine. She’s been festering for years. She’s the part of us that can’t take it anymore. She didn’t want to be caged up and locked down. She wants to be free.
Lilith doesn’t always want to be kind. She’s doesn’t want others telling her what to do. She is at her limit.
This symbolism will not mean the same thing for everyone. Some are going to want to break the rules. Some will continue to live like it’s business as usual. The latter might trigger those who are facing changes. It’s a wild show of reactions out there. The point is to stay in your lane and honor your inner fury.
It’s about listening to our anger. It’s about centering and looking at what is below the fury. It could be sadness for what has gone. Or fear about what the future holds.
More than anything else, Black Moon Lilith is here to tell you to bring all of yourself to this world. That you are not too much, you are more than enough. She loves your intensity, and she wants to support you through your grief. She invites us to feel it all and realize that those emotions are fuelling our passions.
According to Black Moon Lilith, being “too much” is a good thing, and getting messy is worth celebrating.
