Named for an ancient female figure of primordial mystery, Black Moon Lilith is an astronomical point intimately connected to the Earth-Moon system. In these times of expanding ecological and cosmological awareness, the Black Moon offers a spacious field of investigation engaging women and men in fuller self-awareness and soul expression life. Of increasing interest to astrology, the Black Moon has been used for decades in Europe, but there is little written in English about this enigmatic figure and subtle astronomical point. This book helps fill that gap. The author blends astronomy, myth, depth psychology and original creative research into her investigation of the Black Moon. Basic, suggestive interpretations are offered, supported by examples of well-known personages. Read it and consider for yourself a question that has haunted and taunted humanity for four thousand years: is she demonic or divine? Lilith offers no easy answers.
In our 21st century renaissance, renewed interest in the goddess has brought many faces of the divine feminine into modern awareness. Lilith is one of the most alluring—and ancient. As seductive femme fatale, crib death hag or cosmic goddess, vampire or beacon of female integrity, she has continued to excite our cultural imagination. If we follow her trail back in time to seek the source of the fear and negativity she typically evokes, we often discover, not only a major shift in the collective human image of the feminine, but also something essential that needs to be redeemed in our personal lives.
This book traces this powerful archetype through mythology, the arts, astrology, on the world stage and in real life. Of increasing interest to astrologers, Lilith is the name given to four different astronomical points—an asteroid, a star, a dark “ghost” moon and the better-known Black Moon. All four Liliths are discussed an differentiated with the aid of numerous case histories and fascinating insights into the lives of public figures. A section of suggested interpretations of Lilith’s influence through the signs is included. The book is suitable for all levels of astrology and anyone interested in the presence of Lilith in our lives today. Not everyone is ready to explore such profoundly unknown dimensions of self and experience. Is she calling to you?
