Moon Food? ~ True Lilith/Night Demon

My exploration into the question of ‘Are We Moon Food?’ begins after a restless nights sleep during which I stumbled across an article by Tom Montalk. It was called ‘Food For The Moon’. With a natal Moon conjunct MC by 1º, I have always been puzzled by the moon and its spellbinding reputation. Over the years I’d heard some online mumblings that the Moon was some kind of hollow, alien satellite that was controlling us… I just thought that was silly, and yet another way of demonising the divine feminine.

On the other hand Persian Zoroastrianism was a Solar Cult, with male and female worshipping together, much like pagan Europe, before Abrahamic religions rampaged their way to the west…

Anyway, back to the Moon, I don’t think it is an alien space craft… but I have to admit, there certainly is something suspect about the moon! In my research and in practise with clients, the outer planets and difficult stars always seemed far more problematic when in hard aspect to the moon.

There is no denying that the Moon has a powerful, measurable and very physical effect on humans, a night spent in a psychiatric ward on a full Moon will confirm that. Tom Montalk says in his article.

“In the cosmological schema, earth is like a mother to the moon which is still a fetus in the sense that it cannot yet “breathe” on its own, hold an atmosphere, or support life. Gurdjieff said: “The Moon is actually a fragment of this Earth, which must now constantly maintain the Moon’s existence.” In that sense, the moon is like a parasitic thoughtform.

Nevertheless, the equation is balanced because in exchange for the moon propelling our mechanical movement, we feed the moon so that it may grow and one day be born as a living planet…. According to Ouspensky, the moon acts as a giant electromagnet pulling upon all organic life on earth and sucking into itself the soul essence of dying creatures. The moon is an embryonic planet receiving its nutrition from organic life on earth through an etheric umbilical cord, an energy conduit between earth and moon.”

Now this energy conduit could explain the behaviour of Black Moon Lilith in our charts, after all, it is the Lunar Apogee. ‘Food For The Moon’ is a long article, but I urge you to read it. It is very well researched and explores what other esoteric writers such as Mouravieff, Ouspensky, and Gurdjieff also say about the Moon. The following sentence really sang to me as I think this is true not just for the Moon, but for planetary influences in general.

“The degree to which one’s actions are driven by the moon is proportional to one’s level of reactivity and non-being. For people incapable of moving themselves through life by nobler spiritual impulses, the moon provides a propulsive force.”

So my job as an astrologer I think should be to provide a shipping forecast if you like. I can’t tell you how to sail your ship, or where you should throw down your anchor. I can provide a map of the terrain, but then it is up to you.

  1. Marina, I have to say… We do have different point of views on abortion, on feminism and on many subjects. But at the end of the day, I always see myself facing another true astrology passionate researcher, and I’ve always admired you (sorry my poor english; I’m from Brazil). It is something very hard nowadays, living such a numbness we are facing since XX century; to learn and respect somebody with different points of view. I am very connected with my Goddesses and, being a feminist, I do not want to become the “female x male” type of person, because I believe we are much more complexes beings than two opposites. I think we are so much more then sacred feminine and masculine; I believe in sacred queerness, in sacred going beyond the boxes and living alltogether in harmony, but… I have to say that even seeing things so different from you; I always learn ant think again when I read you. Thank you for inspiring me and showing me that people with different point of view are not enemies or opposites; and that the true fight we are fighting is against the world’s destruction by war, poisoning and numbness. You are such an amazing astrologer! And an amazing artist.

    • Thanks Helena, although I wouldn’t call myself a feminist anymore I’m definitely a champion of the divine feminine! It’s all about the alchemy of balance. Like the Yin/Yang symbol, of course there is a little bit of the opposite on each side.
