Moon square or opposite Lilith is one of the most challenging Black Moon Lilith aspect you can have, but it is ultimately one of the most powerful. The subject will go through life facing constant intense triangular relationships that will either make or break them. They may be asked to choose between mother and spouse, child and lover or family and spiritual path. Exceptional demands may be made of them to make heartbreaking decisions, which in the end may exile them from their family. They need to learn that they can’t please everyone and own their Lilith sovereignty.
With Moon/Lilith hard aspects, the native will always end up hurting someone. Therefore they might as well pick the solution that makes their own soul the happiest. Sometimes these folk will break under the pressure of this aspect and succumb to the temptation of Lilith’s forbidden fruit in the shape of sex addiction or drugs. If they manage to come through then they become a fantastic example of the Phoenix rising from the flames. The valuable life lessons they have learnt from their traumas become an inspiration to those still caught up in the darkness.
Moon square or opposite Lilith can work really well if the balance between the mother and anti-mother is worked out. There is a degree of virgin mother V whore here. With the opposition the subject swings between wanting to mother, or be mothered and then abruptly breaking away from family ties. The same ambivalence can be found with their views on sexuality.
Sex and libido can be a big issue, sometimes veering from nymphomania to celibacy over night. The control of sex is really the key. The subject needs to be their own authority on how they display their sexuality, very private or very public as long as it’s their call. If Moon opposite Lilith is not in control of their own sexuality they may need to be in utter control of somebody else’s. A career as a pimp or madame would suit.
Because the Moon and the Black Moon are such polar opposites, in the opposition they could actually end up cancelling each other out. A successful balance of these two would mean that the domestic moon can restrain Lilith from going too far off the rails and wild Lilith could break some of the moons stagnating habits. The bad side of this aspect could be projecting the attraction for the forbidden fruit onto partners by falling for addicts.
One could be playing either side of this opposition, the loving supportive moon or the vampiric Lilith who bleeds their partner dry to feed their addiction. On the plus side this is potentially a greatly creative aspect with the dynamism of the opposition creating a magnetic energy. This is more subtle than the magic wand of the Sun opposite Lilith, it is more like an invisible undercurrent of intuition and animal instinct running through the subject.

Alanis Morrisette has been dubbed the queen of Alt-Rock angst. Just the titles of her CD Albums read like Moon/Lilith keywords “Jagged Little Pill, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, So-Called Chaos, Havoc and Bright Lights…”.

Alanis became an international star with the success of “You Oughta Know” due in part to the notoriety of it’s explicit and scathing lyrics. Later in her career DJ’s refused to play her record “Everything” due to ‘arsehole’ being it’s first line. Alanis has also had acting roles and appeared in the ‘Vagina Monologues.’
In her early 20’s Alanis suffered from depression and an eating disorder. After a few relationships that inspired her more angsty songs, Alanis married in 2010 and has 2 children.

She has a monthly podcast on itunes called Conversation with Alanis Morissette which “features conversations with different individuals from different schools and walks of life discussing everything from psychology to art to spirituality to design to health and well-being, to relationships” ~ Wiki.
