The usual discourse on Lilith begins with its discovery, followed by the emphasis on raw feminine energy, coupled with empowering exertion. As a result of the growing interest in Lilith, both mythologically and as an astrological point, this post intends to forego the above and instead, focus on Lilith as means of attaining personal transcendence through the implementation of detached consciousness.
Representing an imperceptibly lunar penumbra, Lilith denotes the scope of human consciousness that, compared to the Moon, remains far less investigated and acknowledged, due to both lack of comparative popularity and insufficient research. While the Moon resides over the emotional soul, Lilith governs a desire that is more creatively sophisticated in nature. Comparatively, Lilith is a mode of transmission for the discovery and detached influence of Uranus as well as Pluto’s transformative ray. Therefore, as a surge of both Uranus and Pluto, Lilith creates sudden compulsive shifts, an effect dependent on one’s ability to successfully depersonalize. As the Moon personalizes, Lilith depersonalizes, resulting in a degree of sophisticated awareness.
Lilith’s exertion in one’s life emphasizes an impersonal approach occupying the mental, artistic, socially productive, and vocational fields. In natal charts, this is demonstrative as Lilith’s positive modus operandi. However, emotional immaturity in the house of Lilith represents denial as a form of discipline. Additionally, while the Moon supports subjective motivation, any impetus less than impersonal /social leads to a lack of Lilith’s level of manifestation. When activated in accordance with realistic and impersonal approaches, there is a dynamic release of intellectual, creative, or aesthetic energy.
In contrast to our Moon, Lilith appears non-reflective to our mundane awareness and is more psychological in action. Lilith’s inclinations involve one’s social orientation, one’s universal concerns, and one’s vocation, comparatively objective in nature as opposed to the subjective Moon. Once unleashed, Lilith’s energy, like that of Pluto, tends to be either positive or negative in its extremities. When the motivational factor is egotistical, Lilith manifests as frustration, shock, seemingly cruel experiences, and insurmountable acts of rebellion. Regarding selfish desire, Lilith produces unreasonable fears, since the intellectual/ creative soul is disassociated from sentiment. Lilith is anathema to subjective devotion. Its positive fruition is noted in depersonalized orientation, creative detachment, and intellectual awareness.
