What is the Black Moon/Lilith?
In Jewish mythology Lilith was the first wife of Adam. Because Adam treated her as a lesser person from the beginning, Lilith ultimately decided to flee as far as possible from him and the earth.
That is why we use the term “Black Moon” or “Lilith” for the point of where the moon is the furthest removed from the earth.
The Black Moon isn’t a planet but a hypothetical astronomical point, which arises due to the Moon’s path around the ecliptic. It’s an empty area, a void created, an empty focus.
In your birth chart the Black Moon is the symbol of the dark part of your personality. This is the darkest and most hidden part of your psyche. It tells you how you respond to conflict situations, when there’s nobody to help you out.
The Dark Moon will bring you in situations where you don’t want to be confronted with and with people you’d like to avoid. Under the influence of the Black Moon, you sometimes run into (temporarily) difficulties by exposing impulsive behaviour.
Above all the Black Moon confronts us with ourselves. The big difference with the influence of the planets and astrological points however, is the fact that the Black Moon seldomly is recognized and that its lessons offered to you are very difficult to learn. Certain situations keep coming back on your path until you become aware of the lesson to be learned. The Black or Dark Moon classically means imbalance, extreme behaviour, a paradox. Personally I wouldn’t just call it a blockade, but rather a chance to grow; certainly nothing insurmountable.
Superficially considered, the Black Moon only seems to bring misery. But these negative things can sometimes bring important turning points to your life and development and ultimately trigger changes in a positive way.
Lilith is a key to your birth chart that reveals all the characteristics you would prefer to hide from others as well as yourself. But the dark side of your personality is particularly powerful. It is a creative point.
When you cast light on your shadow side, and you are able to transform the initially negative properties of the Dark Moon, you’ve learned a major lesson.
