Black Moon Lilith found in strong chart positions can show a person with intensity and charisma. Black Moon Lilith is not really about ones outwardly persona however a much deeper and strangely attractive quality. One could say that L Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Church of Scientology has a certain charismatic appeal.
Ron Hubbard’s chart shows his Moon in the ninth house of religion with contacts to both Saturn and Chiron. The Moon trine Saturn is about conforming and being strong in the light of another threatening sense of abandonment. Ron’s upbringing has led him into experiences where showing little emotion is the best way to go. His moon is opposite Chiron which tends to suggest boundary issues and the inability to express his natural feeling world. With Black Moon on the ascendant Ron Hubbards charismatic appeal lures others closer where he can then establish attachments and begin his teaching and preaching.
The Black Moon is mesmerizing perhaps, like a woman with great sex appeal in front of a male audience. The darker side of Lilith emits a strong transference that others identify in their own unique manner. Neptune on the ascendant for a person works in a similar manner where projective identification lures others into a false sense of love for the person. The person idealizes, sees what they want to see in the person. The Lilithium at the ascendant captivates the other, by way of a familiar memory, of knowing the person more intimately than any real first introductions allow.
Unfortunately the Islamic magistrates in Schapelle Corby’s drug smuggling case did not allure to her feminine charms.
Once again the chart shows a sensitive area around normal lunar expression of personality. Moon Chiron contact can restrict and add a sense of fear to a normal feeling responses. Schapelle did cry and appear to have emotions during her court hearings however in my view it takes these intense experiences for the a Moon Chiron person to actually have normal feelings. Venus the chart ruler in Shapelle Corby’s case is conjunct Black Moon Lilith. She was a model and a beauty therapist before being caught as a drug runner. Venus and Black Moon Lilith is a relational charismatic appeal which Corby used with her lawyers and the Australian Population. Her voluptuous nature and strange sense of appeal has made her a house hold name, thanks to all the news items.
A woman who worked as a sport massage therapist when I first met her, claimed that she was in the German cycling team earlier in her life. This woman loved to show her extraordinary body off at night clubs. Men would stop in their tracks with their jaws dropping instantly, loving her for her body. There was no doubt her sex appeal was captivating, however there was much more going on.
I thought this woman was quite depressed when I first met her. A few years after our meeting I saw her at a party. She appeared as though she lived in a gym or at least her body size seemed to have doubled in the proportions that I remembered. I thought she was on steroids, yet she was still beautifully proportioned like an ”Olympian” goddess. The people close to me said that whenever she goes into a restaurant the whole place goes quiet and mens eyes are all focused in her direction.
She is the ultimate temptress with a an added extra, in Vesta. Both Vesta and Black Moon Lilith at the ascendant make a formidable combination of self beauty (narcissism) and charismatic appeal. Much like Warren Beatty’s sex appeal with women. She indeed loves herself and is setting out to lure the world to look and love her too. Of course, the Moon trine Venus, trine Vesta/BML in her chart is a gift of the gods especially for the feminine. Apparently as the gossip goes, her sexual prowess is only limited by the trail of men unable to keep up with her. I think the Lilithium in her case, is that she loved to be objectified as a woman.
An interesting technique in my opinion is stripping the chart down to basic chart functions and then adding the other chart points in order of one’s natural responses to the initial chart function. In that way one can identify coping mechanisms and reactive expressions in personality. Here is the basic chart function in a chart.
I wonder how many astrologers would say “Eewww” after seeing this chart dynamic? The Moon is at the “bends” (square nodes), besieged by Chiron and Black Moon Lilith. I allowed the opposite aspect of Moon and Pluto to show because some astrologers would say the aspect is in orb (in range of operation). When lunar expression is limited, the psyche will find other means of survival. The transformational qualities involved for this kind of limited lunar expression shown above, has a great deal to do with the person finding other ways to express themselves.
A person would truly be administered with medications such as Lithium if one’s natural expression (lunar) did not function in some way. The Moon is the free child (natural expression in personality) and of course the moon represents the mother. In the development of personality the mother plays an important role in the above configuration and the chart similarly shows a defensive structure or survival pattern. The astrology of the Moon describes the condition of the parent and therefore the quality of her personality as experienced by the owner of the chart. The mother can transfer positive and negative qualities of her traits to her children by what is known as transference.
One could say that I have some of my Mothers Lilithium in me and that I can magically take on her issues so that she doesn’t have to deal with them. She can banish them from her experience temporarily if I choose to take them on. I must say that in some cases this still applies in my relationship with my mother although I am more aware of the process now. The Black Moon Lilith in my case is perhaps the demonic self expression in times when lunar or other natural expressions are limited.
Although these functions in the chart may take years to understand and integrate in ones personality the result in my case has been a career of psychotherapy. When working with anger it is helpful if the counsellor has intimately dealt with their own anger. When dealing with a client’s limited natural expression and their “Lilith” in personality it seems potentially useful to have an intimate understanding of ones own Lilith.
The transference factor involved with Lilith is varied in its actual direction in the psyche. Lilith can be projected outwardly or introjected (inwardly) in personality. It is a powerful and intense energy that others intuitively sense in the “Lilith prominent” person.
In relationships Lilith can allure and attract the wrong people for the right relational learning experiences.
