The Black Moon Lilith and Saturn
Where Lilith is found shows the area of life where it is wise to take a meta-stance (depersonalize) and learn to lighten seriousness and adherence to rules.
Struggle for Perfection
Lilith brings a struggle for perfection that pairs with Saturn’s need for structure and boundaries. The two pair very well. But in stressful aspects with Saturn, she can bring conflicting emotions and a super drive for purity.
Whenever Saturn and Lilith are combined there is a drive for inner clarity but obstacles in the way of getting it. There is a struggle to bring into the light, our shadow self. When lifestyle or choices make this difficult, depression can be the result.
But even with all these difficulties, a combination of Saturn and Lilith bring depth, wisdom, and intense intelligence with sharp wit.
Touch of Skepticism
With aspects between Lilith and Saturn, nothing is believed or accepted without a touch of skepticism. On the positive side, you aren’t fooled very often, on the challenging side, you look for ways in which things aren’t true or how you are being fooled. This can distort facts and hinder progress through needlessly searching for “what is wrong here” when there is nothing to be found.
In Fire Signs
When Lilith is in a fire sign or fire sign ruled house, you can be a constant worrier with an ongoing pessimistic attitude. Fire and Lilith/Saturn creates a need to be involved in life’s trauma-drama and stay stuck in the shadow self. Lilith in the fire sign brings a stronger reaction than being in a fire ruled house.
In Water Signs
In water signs or water ruled houses (sign is stronger than house), pessimism is rampant with a touch of defensiveness. If Saturn is in an earth sign, aggressive defensiveness rules. If Saturn is in a water sign, you may often think of suicide.
In Air Signs
In air signs or air ruled houses (sign is stronger than house), details and endless systems and organization are the challenges. There is often such clear perception that the spirit or soul of any creative project gets lost in a maze of sterility and detail.
Wherever Lilith lands, if it is in aspect with Saturn, there is an underlying brooding and seriousness in whatever matters the house and sign rule.
Lilith, in past life, karmic astrology is about detachment. Whatever we have formed strong attachments to in past lives that hold us back from spiritual progress, must be detached from and experienced in universal light. Lilith brings these things to a point of such discomfort that we can no longer ignore them. It is depersonalize or continue to experience Lilith’s intensity.
Look to house, sign, and hard aspects for the nature of Lilith’s tough love. Any tie in with the Moon’s nodes, 8th, and/or 12th houses are clear signposts for what Lilith is trying to tell us to let go of.
For example, Lilith in Leo in the 1st house conjunct Mars in Leo in the 12th could show a past life of fame that led to such ego involvement that you began to believe you were above the rest. It could indicate such an attachment to fame and recognition that nothing else mattered. In this life, you might yearn for fame but it brings you only misery or that fame is ever a breath away but never comes into reality. Detach and fame can come in a healthy, productive way.
Lilith, Adam’s first wife, has much to tell us about ourselves, our past, and how to construct a productive, spiritually evolving present and future. Look at it carefully and discover much about yourself.
