Moon Sextile/Trine Lilith ~ Lovable Rogue

Moon sextile or trine Lilith brings an abundance of charm, persuasion and sorcery. This is witchcraft of the highest calibre, but with it, comes the ability to mesmerise and manipulate in the most underhand and unscrupulous fashion if need be. Moon trine Lilith can manifest as a unique talent that stands out from the mediocre.

Moon/Lilith soft aspects have a lively sparkle that makes them irresistible and they are masters of seduction. Unfortunately the ability to hoodwink their prey can be used for nefarious ends. Trine aspects help maintain the status quo, so it is easy for the Moon trine Lilith subject to fall into a circuit of compulsive behavior if this aspect should form part of a grand trine.

Moon sextile or trine Lilith can be particularly susceptible to being led astray by their libido, sometimes falling for the most unlikely and unsuitable partners they can drag out of the gutter. If they are not the villains themselves then they most certainly find themselves being attracted to one. That someone will then play out their suppressed shadow for them. In the main however, unless the soul is housed inside a very disturbed individual this aspect should just manifest as a a soul with a twinkle in their eye and in possession of a wicked imagination.

Peter Pan

Moon trine sextile LilithMoon sextile Lilith has a more Peter pan, youthful feel. This cheeky aspect will enable the subjects to charm their way out of a very deep rabbit hole if need be. This is the ‘lovable-rogue’ with less of the spikiness you sometimes find with Lilith aspects. The sextile is a Venusian flowering aspect so it soothes out Lilith’s rough edges and brings out the magic. There is very little malice here, more Harry Potter than Blair Witch Project.

Moon sextile Lilith is fascinated by the occult and other worlds, and will throw herself into this fantasy realm often to avoid the pain of a gritty, grimy or abusive domestic reality. Life becomes surreal to escape for example, a disturbing relationship with the mother or being the black sheep of the family. Childhood could’ve been stolen from them in some way, so that they have a need to relive it as an adult.

Moon sextile Lilith therefore stumbles dramatically through the prickly forest, a gothic Tinkerbelle wearing a ripped up floaty dress and shredded ballet pumps. Generally Moon/Lilith in soft aspect is a bit of an EMO aspect. The moon is sensitive and wants to be loved and accepted; with the sextile to Lilith she also wants fairy tales and magic, but not to be dark right through to the core. For this aspect to really cause some damage the rest of the chart would need some meaty Mars, Saturn and Pluto aspects. The danger then would be that Moon trine or sextile Lilith would create the purple beguiling icing on a deadly poison cake. Otherwise this is a fantastically, gothic aspect best channeled into the arts or media.

Moon/Lilith ~ Soft Aspects

Moon Trine Lilith

Moon Trine LilithA good creative example of Moon trine Lilith is Pablo Picasso (10’), according to legend his first word was ‘pencil’. Young Pablo suffered at the hands of Lilith the child stealer, when his beloved sister died aged just 7. Picasso was put into art school when he was 16, but in true Lilith fashion he rebelled against the formal classes and rarely attended. Picasso moved to Paris and lived in extreme poverty until he met Gertrude Stein who became his chief benefactor. Women were Picasso’s muses and saviours, he worshiped them, turning them into iconic goddesses with each painting.

Picasso had 8 important partners in his life, the Lilith sex-magic is clearly instrumental in forming each style he went though. Picasso worked cyclically and you can see he had some dark artistic periods, usually as a result of the death of someone close to him. The black moon phase was most apparent during Picasso’s ”Blue Period” where his subjects were mostly prostitutes and begging mothers holding their gaunt children. Picasso lived to the age of 91, painting and sexually active until the very end of his life.

Moon Sextile Lilith.

Johnny Depp. If anyone is the master of playing unhinged fairytale characters it’s Depp. He has played the gamut from Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka to the Madhatter. He is also a favourite actor much employed Tim Burton who must be as Lilithy as you can get at as a film director. Even if Moon sextile Lilith tries to be scary or tough, there’s something quite pantomime and camp about it. The ‘Fonz’ is a great example of this bravado and even Russell Crowe roars like a big pussycat to me. Moon sextile Lilith may be good at playing the villain or the bad boy, but underneath the leather jacket, there is a sweet cherry.

Moon Sextile Lilith“Depp has generally chosen roles which he found interesting, rather than those he thought would succeed at the box office. Critics have often described Depp’s characters as “iconic loners”. Depp has referred to some of his less-successful films as “studio-defined failures” and “box office poison”” ~ Wiki. Despite the so called failures Johnny Depp has been successful in retained an ephemeral, stuck-in-time profile that never seems to age. Depp has also claimed he has Native American ancestry even though there is no evidence to support this. His ancestry is a very mixed, descending from both Sub-Saharan African slaves while at the same time bring 20th cousin of Elizabeth II which may be why he craves the native Indian connection so much. This reflects the outsider element of Lilith who is a bit of everyone, but yet belongs to no one.

  1. 2 questions if you don’t mind. Have you looked at planets in the Black Moon “corridor”, that is the space between the mean and true Black Moon? Any thoughts?

    On a personal note, any thoughts on True and Mean Black Moon, Dark Moon Lilith, asteroid Lilith, in the 12th house conjunct the Moon?

  2. Hi
    Thanks for posting this. I have the trine and in earth signs and read somewhere it was about not having the life you dream of, this is proving true so far.
    What a coincidence to find you chose Picasso who I have this aspect in common with. A few years ago I researched (not too deeply) his astro choices in women and he kept having tragic love affairs (dark stories) but he seemed to do ok.
    I am nothing like him and don’t have it as part of a grand trine so would like to say the more positive manifestations have applied.
    Very interesting read, thanks.

  3. Ha ha! Mine is at 17 Sag and thus trines the centre of my 12th house stellium but mostly the Moon…
    UQW rubs her evil little hands and wonders what nefarious deeds she can get up to today… it will start with feeding the cat…!!!

    1. you can feed my cat too by the same token and have fun modifying my 1st ho Saturn at 15 Sag while your at it….

    2. ooh! you saucy knave Rob!!
      I was just about to add that I know all about the most unsuitable partners from the gutter!!!

    3. cripes – I hadn’t meant it like that, but, in the words of oscar wilde “we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars” =(

    4. Yes I did cackle when I saw you on my list in solar fire! Hope pussykins enjoys her toad and tail of raticus…;)

    5. Ah well here’s the rub! HE, Samuel, has had a breakfast mostly of butter… to which he helped himself after his little chicken pouch… I await the results with a bucket. Meanwhile I went for a vigorous walk in the woods, found some lovely fly agarics but resisted… and have resolved to go back with whoever I can bewitch! I have laid a trail of breadcrumbs and built a house of gingerbread…

  4. Thanks for another great article. If I use’s Lillith option, I get this aspect, and a kite.

    I am a bit witch like, people have said I’m ‘spooky’ and lucky.

    Can manipulate men but that’s about it!

  5. It’s a good one AET! He had true Lilith conjunct Eris just like Judy Garland and like her also has Eris in aspect to the Moon. I had to take Judy of Moon square Lilith (Plus a few others) because I realised that I had left the orbs set at the regular 5 degrees for squares instead of 2.30º and I don’t like to go more than 2.30º for Lilith or any of these aspects really. Her Moon square Eris is tighter. So I will use her as an example of that instead. Eris is the transpersonal Lilith IMO.
    Back to Duchamp though. He’s actually a great example of Moon trine Eris too with creating art out of a urinal and calling it “fountain”. Dada is just SO Eris. And his Moon rising is the surrealism.

    1. Thank you very much Marina for posting this! I’m happy to study this chart and see the other nuances that it hides.

      I always felt that Dada, was the natural starting point for punk, and then when I went on farther in University, I discovered there was an actual intellectual lineage starting from Dada, moving to surrealism and the next step was Situationist International, and finally Punk which draws its direct influence from SI.. I didn’t know until I really read up on it.

      I was just looking up a chart which had a Black Moon Lilith conjunct Eris.. I think it was Barry Adamson, bass player for Magazine, eventually Nick Cave and the Badseeds… and a few other projects, but I just discovered he had been educated in the visual arts, and just recently Wrote, Directed, Edited and Scored his own film. The 40 minute film is a “film noir” on called “Therapist”, the trailer was really well done, and take note that Barry Adamson is a Gemini, [11 June 1958
      in Manchester, ENG (UK), 2w15, 53n30](I haven’t asked around for the time, which I should but that means to get in touch with some old friends, but maybe you being in the country could get a hold if it?)

      Take note the framing and what the character says to the Therapist, about what the film is about that he is working on…and what IT is about.

      I really felt inspired by finding his newer path and him following a path similar to my own. He’s one of the first bass players I have idolized for years, him and Mick Karn, both born strangely enough the same year.

  6. Hello. Good to see you’ve posted some new interpretations since I last visited this site1 It’s like coming from the bathroom, to find food on the table. lol
    I have a question, though..”THE” question: What orbs do you allow for Lilith aspects.
    I have Moon in 0 Gemini trine Lilith in 3 Libra. Is that too wide?

  7. My lilth trines my moon..but i am also blunt NOT rude thanks to my merc and mars placement in sagg..hoping ability to charm kicks in..persuasion through brick wall like arguments have earned me few fans so far. Not that I care…see what I mean? LOL 🙂

  8. Great article! 😀
    I have Lilith trine Sun and Jupiter?
    Are these similar to Lilith trine Moon?

  9. Hi Marina…I have a hill-billy question. Actually 2.
    is this interpretation based on natal chart? Then mine trines with venus, Chiron, MC, Hygiea..sextiles Leo moon..
    If it is based on a transit then which dates does it apply?
    foolish query….but I really love your astrological perspectives and want to further know the nuances of my natal. Thanks.

  10. i want to know what means saturn trines lilith. i can’t find info about that aspect. can u help me?

  11. Wow (after reading this)…thank you DarkStar people, for an enlightening article. Now that I know more about Lilith, I’m petitioning NASA to delete her from space! Well c…(-:

  12. A lot of what you say here is impressive. I’d say 80% at least accurate, regarding me. My Lilith is 22 degrees Aquarius, and Moon is 23 Gemini. Thank you for covering Lilith, all astrology books should cover it.

  13. What a fabulous post, Marina! You have opened a whole new world for me.

    My Lilith is at 29 Lib 31, trine Moon at 28 Gem 59 (in the 8th house). The interpretation matches me, but I also have a bit of the sextile.
    “Fortunately” I have Aspergers and dislike being touched (but there are NOTABLE exceptions), otherwise I might very well be out of control.

    Lilith seems to tell me the story of my life, which I never noticed before reading your post. Lilith and various other objects form a sort of umbrella shape that goes from my Ascendant to my Descendant.

    Using slightly wider orbs than you do:
    Lilith semi-sextile Asc/my name asteroid
    Lilith conjunct Ceres
    Lilith semi-sextile Neptune/Chiron/Jupiter
    Lilith sextile Mercury/Juno
    Lilith square my partner’s name asteroid
    Lilith trine Venus/Moon in the 8th house
    Lilith quincunx Descendant/Algol

    In the northern hemisphere of my chart, the “handle” of the umbrella would fall in the middle of the 3rd house – I’d say this point would be quite sensitive to transits??
    Also near here is my son’s name asteroid, quincunx Lilith.

    Lastly, my Sun is conjunct Pluto, orb 1:52 degrees. No wonder people say I’m rather intense, unafraid of the dark, and a natural-born witch!

  14. Moon at 28 cancer46 , sextile lilith 28 virgo 18, with mars conjunct pluto (4 minutes apart) in leo and AC,sun, mercury in virgo sandwiched in between. Well, anyway I plead DA fif! Been vilain and vilainized ,in the same relationship at times. Like a cat , all cute and cuddly, I get led down a primrose path,then cornered, I can turn and dangle his bleeding eyeball from my claws, and land on my feet. Working on changing this dynamic , astrology has helped open my eyes to what and why. never again !

  15. Hmmm…I would say I relate to this but the orb is too wide for sextile at 6’?? Maybe it’s all the Pluto (Scorpio moon & Venus.) Lilith is conjunct my North Node in 4th, opposite Saturn & trine my mars. ) maybe it gives a similar vibe? Love your articles Marina!! 😉
