Moon-phase-diagramThe cycles of the moon are integral to our daily lives, as are the cycles of the pagan seasons. Older cultures in tune with the earth, respected these cycles.

Rebirth takes place at the New Moon and the northern spring equinox. The dark stage is necessary to decompose and replenish the earth in preparation for rebirth. It’s unnatural and exhausting to live in an eternal summer. All living beings need hibernation time, just like women need to respect their menstrual cycle and moods. Ups and downs are normal. Unfortunately expressing wild and raw emotions are deemed to be unacceptable in current society and are often levelled out via pharmaceuticals or suppressed with alcohol or illegal drugs.

“I will love the light for it shows me the way. Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars…”- Og Mandino


It was the ancient astrologers observations of the moon across the constellations that enabled them to make their predictions. You cannot stargaze in sunlight obviously. In sidereal astrology the Moon is placed above the Sun in importance, the moon is the closest planetary body to earth after all.

Which brings me to the dark goddess. Black Moon Lilith is the position of the Moons apogee when the Moon is furthest away from the earth. The moon is bigger and brighter when it is closest to the earth. These are known as “super moons”. The apogee is more like super elusive. By being further away from the earth, she is reflecting less solar energy back to earth. The Black Moon is aptly named then, representing the darkest, bleakest, but potentially the most magical Moon phase. The Black Moon, like Hekate the witch, is the threshold between worlds.

    Thank you very much Rob. That helps a lot. I’ll think more deeply on the “medicine” aspect. She is a writer and actress and expresses some very Lilith themes in her work. For example , on the anniversary of her young friend’s murder, she produces a play she wrote about it. However- the conflict with her woman feminine self is apparent in many ways. Needs to be more at ease there and trusting. She is young.

      its a bit like shooting in the dark answering this, but, from what you’ve just said I think the personal ceremony, medicine work will help, especially as this can be quite a good place to channel the creativity – but, held and expressed in an inner sanctum experienced as real space made sacred…thats also an archaic descrition of theatre??!!

    Oh yes Rob, she also dances with an all woman dance show. She is the youngest and all the woman really flaunt and have fun with their feminine self. R rated I would say. Very popular show in LA. Stars join in sometimes. She loves it.

      That sounds a great way of grounding with Saturn. Of course!! the AC is the physical body and Lilith on there is perfect an all woman dance show.
