Black Moon LilithBlack Moon Lilith, or the Lunar apogee is the most commonly used Lilith in Astrology. Black Moon Lilith encapsulates all three Liliths while at the same time if you want to use the other two Liliths, you can fine tune with these extra sprites and they will give you clues as to which of the three are operating most strongly. You can find out more about the Lilith trio and the Black Moon Corridor in this Triple Moon Goddess Post

Here we shall focus on Black Moon Lilith in more detail. In particularly we need to get a hold of just how the Lilith corridor works looking at the lives of the famous and the infamous. I decided to look at the Black Moon Lilith rising or featured in the 1st house. Such a strong fiery placement should push Lilith energy to the forefront of a persons life and identity. Having them conjunct Mars or the Sun would do the same.


Timothy Leary 1960’s counter culture “Guru” had a black hole of a Lilith corridor, 5 degrees wide in the 1st. The midpoint of Mean & True Lilith opposed a Ceres/ Pluto conjunction (03’!). This aptly describes his use of psychedelics drugs, taking that Plutonic portal to access the shadow realms of the psyche. Ceres is the wisdom of mother earth speaking to us through plants and herbs, psychedelics such as mushrooms and Ayahuasca fall under that category. True Lilith sextiles Leary’s North Node while also trining Pluto/Ceres making this journey into sacred medicines part of his life’s calling. He also had the obsessive fiery-red star Antares rising and Pluto/Ceres quincunx the AC which support the Dark Goddess energy.

Marilyn Monroe had a magnetism that was off the scales. The camera loved her osculating hips! She has True Lilith, otherwise known as osculating Lilith rising, opening a Lilith corridor from the 12th spanning down into the 1st. It contains glamorous Neptune and voluptuous Ceres. True Lilith is semi-sextile sexually intense Pluto. Mean Lilith is quincunx Uranus (04′) and square Asteroid Lilith. So here we have the conflict, her sexuality V her emancipation. She did have a few lesbian flings, disillusion by being treated as a sex object. Desperately insecure, her oozing sexuality overwhelmed her. That Mean Lilith is trined by charming and beautiful Venus. So not something she could hide!

Pablo Picasso was the most prolific and famous artist of the 20th century. He was still painting and sexually active at the age of 90! He had a black hole corridor in the first house with True Lilith rising widely. This Lilith squared Saturn giving him that wrinkly sex appeal and longevity as an artist. True Lilith also trines the Moon and North Node. That all important artistic mission was aided by lunar imagination and the ladies.. His muses were his many wives and lovers. Mean Lilith is quincunx hell-raising Eris and trined Neptune, his artistic experiments challenged the established art world at the time.

Johann Sebastian Bach spellbinding harpsichord music hypnotised the ear transporting one to heaven. His famous organ piece Toccata & fugue is truly mesmerising. True Lilith leans into the 1st house quincunx racey Mars,( his pieces were FAST) True Lilith is also trine Saturn, mixing technical mastery with Magic. Mean Lilith is semi-sextile his mystical Sun in the 12th house, uplifting heavenly music yes! His long Black Moon corridor spans the 2nd house of cash and contains the Lilith star Algol.

Johnny Cash had a very Lilith themed life, the troubled Country singer and “Man In Black” had a distinctive vocal style. Intoning songs of sorrow and redemption to prisoners. He got clean after a spiritual epiphany during a drug induced suicide attempt. Not surprising then to see he has True Lilith rising conjunct the North Node (06’!) He has a long Lilith corridor spanning the whole of the 1st house putting it at the forefront of his persona. It contains Lilith flavoured Eris (outlaw), Venus (love) & Uranus (rebel). His corridor culminates with a Mean Lilith in opposition to Asteroid Lilith on the gifted Star Spica. His 5 decade career and regeneration after meeting his 35yr work & soul mate June Carter, are beautifully described by his Lilith story.

  1. Lilith in Libra/4th = scorned woman in the house of home/family? In my family of origin, I was obviously a “black sheep” and had a fraught relationship with my dad, who was the only male in our nuclear family … he and I had many power struggles early on, though I also idolized him as well.

    • I have the same lilith 4th/libra and for me it wasn’t the same. Yes, i have been the black sheep either but in my case it’s about my step mother…

  2. Black moon in 11 house/ Aquarius –
    I have had a report done that says I have a prominent black moon.
    – sextile ascendant
    – square pluto
    – square saturn
    – sextile moon
    – square mars

    • Thats the problem with reports. How wide are the aspects. Which Lilith are they talking about Mean or True?
      I use a very narrow orb. 3º for the lights, 2.30′ for everything else. I do a Dark moon reading using both Liliths if you are interested. Dark Moon Reading $139

  3. Yesterday, Marina, I had a look to one´s friend chart. She does not have any gaps, any corridor. She has both Lilliths on the 2nd H. Sagg. And I was surprised…

    What would that mean?

  4. I can echo the black sheep thing: my Lilith corridor is in Capricorn with Mean a degree away from my Sun on one side and Juno on the other. It’s on the 3rd house side of my Root, that is Nadir but can also be read as vibrating in the 4th house since it’s in the same sign as the angle. Also True Lilith is close to nadir along with Ceres. The Wild Man speaks strongly through me and I think it freaked out my family who wanted me to be a good Roman/Civilized person…that is fully repressed and ignorant of the deeper layers of Mind. I’ve also always felt a strong connection to feminine consciousness that I had a hard time understanding when I was young. I had a hard time learning to value my male body I think because the male body is not considered sexy in the mainstream media-especially when it’s not hard and hairless. It’s always been hard for me to ignore the reality that sexual energy is at the root of the human bodymind. Until I found Chinese martial arts, the Taoist kind it kinda drove me crazy. Now I know how to circulate the energy so it’s not all stuck in my genitals. In Capricorn near the bottom of my chart I suppose Lilith has been drawing my mind down to my gut brain all this time. Also I learned how to cultivate my own sexual energy so I don’t have to project it onto women. Now Lilith doesn’t have to scream to get my attention.

  5. I think the true wild man energy flows out of guys who are in conscious touch with the feminine in their lives, minds and bodies. this is difficult for most men because there is an element of taboo. my dad embodied the wild man who has integrated the masculine and feminine in a wholesome and deeply soulful way. he was the most whole person i ever met, but he didn’t believe that he was. he ended up taking on too much of others’ pain and responsibility for the death of his mom and brother; he felt that since he was a doctor he should have been able to save them. his shadow side was Sun-Neptune & Moon-Pluto (drugs and sexual obsession), and he needed everyone’s approval and adulation as a God among men, a savior. he burnt out at 44. as his oldest daughter, i am carrying on his legacy moving from Neptune & Pluto to Chiron & Lilith, which i am starting to embrace more as my saturn return will be exact by his birthday at the end of the month.
