In most of our Mythological stories the archetypes represent aspects of individual personality. The archetypal stories present meaningful visualisations which help to understand functions of the psyche. In modern astrology each planet or star reflects both positive and negative meanings in the natal chart. Black Moon Lilith also has a creative side.
God created Lilith for a reason?
In the mythology of “creation” perhaps Adam and Eve and Lilith are elements in our individual psyche and represent the ongoing nature of Creation of life itself? In a simplified manner Adam and Eve represent the masculine and feminine aspects of personality where Lilith seems to represent a dysfunctional form of the psyche. According to mythology and in Lilith’s case there seems to be a religious or judgemental process where her banishment from Eden may be a necessary function for “creation” to have taken place at all. Lilith “is” involved and whether banished or not there are good reasons for this.
Life isnt all roses and nice gardens it seems and the mythology of Lilith can represent a way of dealing with the more difficult aspects of personality. The interesting part about Lilith reverberating from the archetypal “Creation” to our individual psyche is that Lilith emerges in creative ways for the sheer purpose of survival.
Lilith exercises her creative and fundamental side to get through situations which our normal feminine and masculine sides cannot.
Admittedly some measures of psychological survival result in ongoing dysfunctional thinking or behaviours however in times of need Black Moon Lilith emerges to take control because no one else is.
Lilith in psychology might easily be described as the repressed or “split off” element in the psyche however in my view, Lilith is a creative conduit aligned in the darker reflections of ones instincts and the unconscious or rejected part of personality. Black Moon Lilith in the astrology chart represents the manager and mouthpiece of our darkest stories. She works in creative and instinctive ways – not to bring balance to emotional structures however for survival purposes only.
Sometimes it is good to clear the air within our different social circles or friends. Recently the Black Moon Lilith has been conjunct the North Node.
The Nodes represent a connection to more than one thing or persons. The Node represents a kind of Social synchronicity in astrology. Within our communities and groups of friends we might express our collectively “banished” feelings that exist within those circles. There is always a risk in expressing ones non – conscious thoughts and feelings to a wider group however Lilith makes that kind of expression possible now. Lilith can be expressed positively at the moment.
It is also comforting to know that Saturn is forming a trine aspect to BML and the Node. One can be assured that Lilith’s instinctive operation within our communities has some structure. There are a great benefits stemming from Lilith’s creative function if one can tap into them.
