The Black Moon Lilith is nearing the end of her transit through Virgo and preparing to enter Libra on August 25, 2015 until May 21, 2016. BML is not a planet or even a comet, asteroid or any other physical object. The geometrical point of the Black Moon is basically the shadow or apogee of the Moon’s orbit around the Earth – the place where it is farthest away from Earth.
Because the Black Moon Lilith represents the Dark Goddess, Eve as an outcast of creation, temptress and sinner, she indicates where and how we, whether man, child, or woman, express the feminine aspects of rage, guilt, fear, envy, lust and revenge. Her powers are formidable and unpredictable, as she holds the keys to both creation and destruction. She is both the serpent on the Tree of Life offering wisdom, and the innocence of Eve destroyed. Insatiable succubus, bride of Satan, and Queen of the Faeries, the Black Moon Lilith has become to us as an untamable monster that man has created out of his own greed, terror, and self-denial – a sort of female Frankenstein of the Otherworld.
Since November 27, 2014, the Black Moon Lilith has been transiting the unassuming, yet highly hygienic sign of Virgo, where we’ve struggled as much with the fear of disease as with death by doctors. Although the influence of BML often goes quiet and undetected as an owl in the night, those who are sensitive and aware sense her presence in no uncertain terms. They might not be able to put a finger on it, or they might not know to call her by name, but they know nonetheless that there is something strange slithering through the consciousness of the masses. Several holistic doctors have vanished and been killed during the past couple of months, and an pandemic of vaccines have been forced upon wider pockets of civilization. We’ve seen many fatal mistakes made in the field of medicine during this transit. We’ve also seen or experienced an overall obsession with work ethics and trying so hard to get things right, with effects particularly noticed by those with planets in Virgo.
Although those who have planets in Libra might be especially affected by BML’s transit through this sign, we are going to see a significant shift with regard to interpersonal relationships on a very wide scale. All those “iffy” connections, whether they are on romantic, familial, or business levels will be coming to a head. We may be confronted with our indecision and fears around commitment or betrayal and will need to exercise complete honesty first and foremost with ourselves, secondly with those we are closely dealing with – unless of course there is some life-or-death situation or one that calls for a protective cover-up. With the Pluto-Uranus square aftermath, aspects from the North Node in Libra, and ample Retrograde action, we’ve encountered many explosive episodes over the past year with legal abuse, racial discrimination, and threats of martial law. With the Black Moon Lilith in Libra the war of wits will be full-on.
Unless the masses wake up and recognize that the destruction of life and the violation of natural law on this planet has been deliberate and is no accident, humanity does not stand a chance of survival.
Sloppy policies should be avoided at all costs during this transit. We should be alert to intrigues and not make any promises that we don’t intend to keep – false ones will quickly backfire. Injustices will continue to be witnessed by the public because that’s what we’re being fed by the media, but more individuals will need to stand up and fight whether they feel supported by a team or not. On the mental plane, more of us will need to just say NO to bullshit. Forgive my lack of Libran tact for a moment but there is no protection in pretending things are OK when they’re on a downward spiral to hell.
All that being said, there is sweet magic and beauty that can be experienced with the Black Moon Lilith when we are attuned to her energies in an open, unbiased way. It could be that relationships that have already been on the rocks for a long time finally break or begin to heal during Her transit through Libra. BML in this sign deeply intensifies bonds, sexual and otherwise but challenges us to find balance and fairness in our interactions. Libra represents the other person and the feedback that we receive from those around us, so it will be interesting to see how both our sense of self and connectedness to others in all of this becomes illuminated throughout this time.
