Re-Wilding Initiation: LILITH enters SCORPIO on May 21

15 May

Have you been feeling HER?

The power of the wildly free, instinctual, and naturally self directed Feminine in all of us, men and women, guides and empowers our choices nowadays, as LILITH comes to the end of LIBRA, where the Choice Point, or shall I say, ‘Tipping Point’ over into SCORPIO is.

I call the LI – SCO cusp also the ‘Alchemy Point’ where ‘ingredients’ in our life or relationships with people come together, and their ‘marriage’ starts a deeper process. If it is compatible and a ‘good match’, great. Then  our wild and original LILITH nature can take us deeper, into powerful processes. If not it can bring up issues that LILITH helps us process. LILITH in SCO is such a change agent, through the discomfort to new natural empowerment.

LILITH has a natural inner affinity with SCORPIO, and can be extra potent in that realm.

With ‘her’ move, all your SCORPIO Planets, SUN, MOON, Nodes, AC, MC get ‘lilified’, i.o.w. re-connected with your original, natural, ‘wild’ Self.

  • Are your day-to-day decisions, or bigger, even life changing, choices very charged these days?
  • Do you make sure you are true to your authentic, natural, instinctual, original Self in these choices?
  • What’s going on for you in the ‘Alchemy’ of life, where involvement creates change?
  • What does your natural self call you to go into?
  • Where is the Magic in your life?


LILITH moves from LIBRA into SCORPIO in a week, exactly on the Full Moon day, Sat May 21 – a big deal, since ‘she’ only changes signs every 9 months!

So let’s tune into the archetypal gifts of LILITH these days,  see what’s cooking, and what’s ‘cooking us up’!

To be naturally aligned with, yet not attached to, the cosmic vibrations that are offered now.

If it resonates with you, you are invited to join one of our LILITH-into-SCORPIO groups, on Wed afternoon or Thu evening PDT (also via Skype, from anywhere)!

RE-Wilding Ourselves, From Our Authentic Depth


Lilith (Sumerian) - Queen of the Night

Sumerian Lilith


Whoa – even more themes around the Archetypes of the Feminine in this time period, after JUPITER’s turnaround in VIRGO last Monday, and Friday the 13th (VENUS / MOON-Day):

LILITH is known as the Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’ but beyond that, so much more

Her mythology dates back to Sumerian and Hebraic creation myths.

She was considered the first man’s (Adam’s) wild and instinctual female consort who animated his sexual longings and claimed equality with him, “because we were created from the same earth”. When he wanted to dominate her, she left him, and chose loneliness and exile rather than subjugation. As ‘punishment’ for her rebellious act against the masculine, LILITH was regarded as a personification of the ‘feminine evil’, a demoness and ‘vamp’ that attracts and then devours male energy, the raging, ‘out-of- mind’, uncontrollable feminine, uncivilized woman who cohabits with men at her own will. The witch in her role as devil’s consort and the temptress and bitch / prostitute are some of the prominent darker LILITH Archetypes and (particularly male) phantasies and projections in our Western societies.

Psychologically, LILITH brings up deep and primal issues like unbound sexual power, repressed feelings of rejection and rage, and yet refusal to submit. In a ‘LILITH state’, we are very irrational, but sometimes it seems as if that’s what it takes to bring out the truth from underneath. Perimenstrual times can guide us women to LILITH’s realm. So important to acknowledge the themes that come up, and find a safe, creative and transformational outlet, ideally together with other LILITH peers, rather than exiling and isolating oneself.

What’s with the ‘Black Moon LILITH’ which some astrologers associate with calculations round the MOON’s shadow? In my view, that’s rather symbolic and psychological: In mythology, LILITH got enraged about the ‘diminishment of the MOON’, in other words, about the treatment and self understanding of the Feminine as secondary and inferior: As ‘MOON’, lots of women have been expected to merely reflect back the sunlight of the creative, SUN-like masculine. LILITH’s motifs for claiming equality for the Feminine were dual – for herself, and for her ‘MOON sisters’. Which reminds me of Feminists who fight for equality for themselves, and on behalf of their repressed Sisters. Therefore, the ‘Black MOON’ speaks of the alliance of LILITH and MOON. It’s always interesting to look at the relationship between LILITH and the MOON (and also VENUS) in one’s birth chart, to find out more about the dynamic of the inner ‘feminine trinity’, in women as well as in men (as their ‘animas’).

Many traditional men and unempowered women tend to avoid going to these muddy emotional places; they let (other) women go into and through it, and rather stay ‘in control’. HA! Very SCORPIONIC. Thereby, they contribute to perpetuating a projection of the demonic dark Feminine onto ‘women out there’, while an aspect of their own inner Feminine cries for acknowledgment and integration. I would like to encourage everyone to deeply explore what brings out their ‘inner LILITH’, to meet ‘her’ and go ‘through it’ with ‘her’, esp. under LILITH in SCO.

Over the course of the last decade or so, since I’ve been exploring the astrological LILITH as an inner Archetype, with clients, groups, and in my own experience and transits from and to LILITH, an evolution happened – maybe a reflection of PLUTO having opposed my natal LILITH: On a spiritual level, LILITH points us to ‘simply’ being in our true, Unconditioned Nature. Having said that, the ‘traditional’ LILITH effects can still play out.

Lilith, by John Collier


LILITH, the Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’ / being in one’s ‘Unconditioned Nature’ enters deep, magical, transformational SCORPIO on May 21 (also day of the Full Moon, and the day before Mercury goes direct again), for 9 months, until Feb 14, 2017..

LILITH has a 9-year cycle, and hasn’t been in SCO since Oct 2006 – Apr 2008.

Interesting that LILITH travels 9 month in one sign – a pregnancy phase to cultivate those qualities, through our true nature. And by the way, ‘she’ never goes retro.

If you have a SCO side in you (and even if you don’t), you are likely noticing a stirring up of your ‘deep inner wildness’ that just doesn’t put up with shallow superficial fake BS, and sees through manipulation, power trips, and other strategic agenda.

Let’s backtrack: Under LILITH in LIBRA over the last 9 months, have you made choices from your inner true nature?
Choices have consequences, says the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCO. Time to get ‘into it’. The depth of the matter, where the power lays, perhaps buried under layers of…. you name it. 

LILITH in your chart…
…shows where YOU need to be in tune with YOUR natural power and which areas of life trigger that (money, children, relationships, travel, career…) and in what way (sign, and aspects to other planets).


Where LILITH transits in your chart in SCO (be it your SUN, MOON, Nodes, Planets, AC, MC) these Archetypes and sides in you are being ‘rewilded’ and brought back to being in your true nature.
