Sun square Lilith creates incredibly strong-willed, feisty individuals who take it upon themselves to become spokespeople for the disadvantaged. Others may speak out about gritty, dark issues that are disturbing or distasteful to the public in some way. The square has so much tension that it is compelled to action. It simmers with unprocessed rage at being exiled and rejected. Together these edgy qualities will create activists, mesmerising agitators and trouble makers. They think nothing of taking the law into their own hands and have their own sense of honour and principles, which can sometimes effect their popularity. Always as tough on themselves as they are on others, they aim high and have intuition and great survival instincts to aid them in their leaps of faith.
Sun Square Lilith Natives
Phil Donahue (63′) controversial talk-show TV presenter tackled meatier than average issues like abortion, AIDS and pollution. His feminist wife inspired him to also air women’s issues and changes in the US family life. But as the taste for sensationalism grew in the 90’s, he felt he had to compromise his “televised PhD course” in favour of sleaze to maintain his ratings. Disillusioned he quit broadcasting in 1996.
Bob Geldof (63′) Irish punk rock musician and activist. Famous for his phenomenal fund raising with Band Aid and Life Aid stating “The boys and girls with guitars will finally get to turn the world on its axis.” Geldof came from a place of suffering himself. His mother died when he was just 7 followed by his sister’s diagnoses of leukaemia. Bob was raised to be politician from a child by his opinionated father who encouraged debate in the home. Despite Bob’s scruffy appearance and being “abrasive, tactless, foul-mouthed and irreverent“, his impassioned campaigning inspired co-operation from members of society high and low. I have to add the recent tragic death of Bob’s daughter Peaches at just 25 the “child-stealing” aspect of Lilith only too literal here.
Evel Knievel (65′) daredevil motorcycle stuntman almost killed himself many times. The ultimate hell-raiser, Knievel had a problem with aggression which sometimes got totally out of control. A paradox of principles, he was arrested for allegedly beating his wife while he successfully campaigned against the culling of Elk. Even when advised some of his jumps were positively suicidal he stated“I went ahead and did it anyway. When you give your word to somebody that you’re going to do something, you’ve gotta do it”. He took the law into his own hands when he hospitalised a defaming biographer while both his arms were still in casts!
Nina Simone (29′) eclectic “Soul” singer, known for her depth of emotion, yet she only ever had one top 40 hit in her heyday. A forthright, feisty and brutally honest woman, she was deeply committed to fighting racism. Simone was constantly battling with her record company’s by whom she felt manipulated. Her music was used in a British perfume advert in 1987, the utterly Lilith“I Put A Spell On You” Other uncompromising artists, who danced to their own tune are Kevin Kline and the late Kenny Everett.
