Black Moon Lilith transiting Libra 2015-2016

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.

lilithAll 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.

Full Moon in Cancer

The full moon at 25 degrees Cancer on January 15th connects us with the Cosmic Mother, the Earth Mother, our inner and outer mothers, and creates collective awareness of the need we have for emotional and motherly nurturing. Many are feeling vulnerable at this time, and many deep emotions are rising to the surface, as though turbulent waves have just pulled up and rolled ashore much that was buried in the murky depths of the subconscious. Dreams are heightened, and very old memories are being stirred.

This is a time of emotional release whether good, bad, ugly, nice…whatever feelings are surfacing are so intense that some kind of outlet may be necessary so that they do not explode or implode in harmful ways. Family history, baggage, and patterns are reflected by the Moon’s opposition with Capricorn. There is a pivotal moment to remain in the entrapment of the chains of pain passed down to us, or to break free by responding differently to both actions and emotions that arise.

Now and during the week we may deeply connect with the primordial wisdom of the waters of the earth, the waters that comprise our physical shells. It could be healing to be particularly conscious about the water we drink, bathe in and utilize in any way, as the life-giving and precious commodity it has become. We must ask ourselves what we have done to bring ourselves to the present moment, without  placing blame or judgment on ourselves anyone else. It is as though we are tracing our origins, in order to free ourselves from all of the emotional weight we have accumulated in the process of discovering what it is to be fully embodied in human form. We may come to realizations similar to that of the Buddhist belief that “all sentient beings were our previous mothers”. This symbolizes our interconnectedness we share in the grand scheme of existence in this Universe.

The Black Moon Lilith – a mysteriously moving astrological point in the heavens is exactly conjoined with this Full Moon, highlighting the paradox we all experience at some point of both the holy and harsh aspects of the mother goddess. The sacred and profane are currently juxtaposed, and in our face so to speak. Basically the Black Moon Lilith is the moon’s furthest point in its orbit around earth. She holds mysteries, magic, and wisdom that is both accessible and ineffable to us. Right now her magic and wisdom runs deep and ancient, through the world and through our veins, touching the core of our being. This is not a full moon encouraging us to press on in a struggle, which can create further resistance against the very thing we hope to attain. Ultimately we have nothing essential to do but to receive, let go, and allow.
