LILITH Passed SATURN on AUG 22: Outgrowing ‘Obstacles’ on the Path, with Our True Authentic NATURE!

24 Aug

Besides the Total Solar ECLIPSE, this is also a LILITH shift week and month, as ‘she’ takes flight, out of SATURN’s ring /cage.

 

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief, with Owls & Lionesses – ‘her’ Entourage. ‘She’s a clawed and winged one herself, strong and wise – feared by those whom she ‘triggers’.

The ECLIPSE that gets all the attention (SO LEO), yet it’also a strong LILITH – SATURN week and month: 

LILITH just met and passed SATURN on AUG 22!
…which is a major ‘game changer’ (compounding with the Eclipse), and only happens every 12 1/2 years – last time was in FEB 2005 in CANCER.

A ‘wildly Feminine’, or rather Instinctual Energy on its Fly-bye (and perhaps waves bye-bye) to the Archetype of Authority.


In its SAG shadow (one of SATURN’s jobs is to reveal the shadow, and have us work through it) SATURN shows up as a saboteur of inspiration, a linear, judgmental, righteous, dogmatic ‘boss’ / patriarch that takes the FUN out of SAG, and replaces it with FEAR.

Yep, the inner and outer SATURN gets also symbolically ‘eclipsed’, or at least passed, in ‘Wild SAG Flight / Ride’ by LILITH who will from now on take the lead for quite a while, while SATURN follows.

A new 12 1/2 year LILITH / SATURN cycle started – now in late SAG – the realm of the Nature-Ally Wise Ones. May they / WE speak UP and lead ON, from the HEART!

Time to go beyond being blocked, caged in, and held back by old stories, paradigms, labels, dogmas, and beliefs that have (even historically) produced patterns of fear from moving forward, and fear of ‘the foreign’ / ‘the other’.

Perhaps we’ve over-compensated, by living a narrow trajectory of expectations, judgments, and projections of negativity, coming up with ‘game plans’ to control (and prevent) what SAG is really about: Trusting in the journey, the adventure of LIFE itself, and to follow our Heart.

Well, SATURN has definitely taught us a lot about all this, in the last 2 years since it’s been in SAG (until Dec 19, 2017) and recently retro, pushing us to be ‘done with inner obstacles on the journey’, such as old limiting beliefs, or at least to unburden ourselves from a big part of it.

 

Owl Freeing

  • Where and how have we let ourselves be kept small, caged in, and prevented from growing, and living in the fullness of our truth and our path?

 

SATURN is also having a ‘Change of Heart’ or at least, a change of direction, from inward-retro to outward-direct (on Aug 25) – but can’t catch up with LILITH who’s leading now.

Hopefully (and likely painfully so) we would have experienced in the SATURN retro phase since early APRIL how Fear can hold us back.
A Yoga teacher this week mentioned these two acronyms for F.E.A.R.:
Fear Everything And Run.
Face Everything And Rise.
Both very apropos SATURN in SAG.
And there’s always:
False Evidence Appearing Real (perhaps my favourite one).

SATURN reto would have also shown us how it’s legit to trust intuition and inner guidance, and not move forward if appropriate.
SATURN retro to direct is an inner ‘wrap-up’ of walking around with blinders on (either too focused on something that’s just not realistic, or not seeing what’s possible / lacking perspective). Now we hopefully know more. Yet, don’t let your knowing turn into dogma.

With LILITH moving past SATURN, things are shifting, and our ‘Inner Wildness’, i.o.w.:

 

Our intrinsically Free and Happy (no ‘pursuit of happiness’ needed) True Nature leads us onward, on the Path, with heartful inspiration and radical inner trust.

The Grand FIRE Trine theme in the LILITH / SATURN in late SAG (the ‘Integrity Point’ of the Zodiac) says: Claim Intrinsic AUTHORITY.
See my blog post re: Grand Fire Trine activations.

Can’t hurt to invoke their Archetypes. Hint: SATURN likes ritual (putting intention into form).

“The Truth Shall set You FREE” is another LILITH – SATURN in SAG theme.
Truth about what???
Clues can be found in late SAG in your, or in a relationship’s / organization’s / city’s / country’s chart.

For the U.S., that’s in the country’s first house of identity.
LILITH / SATURN at 21° SAG exactly oppose the U.S. MARS at 21°22 GEM in their 7th house of ‘significant others’, i.o.w. other countries and individuals the country is partners or opponents with – who face them, and whom the country dialogues with.

“Why are there all these enemies to the State/s and within the State/s now?”
“In whom or what can we / they trust?” (SAG)?!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

Total Solar ECLIPSE Initiation Aug 21. LILITH / SATURN Aug 22. Grand FIRE Trine: Autonomy – Agency – Authority.

19 Aug

Hey Cosmic Community, in Eclipse count-down!

SO much fiery charge is UP and around and within now, as we’re approaching THE Big Event very fast.
‘Not only’ is the Eclipse THE cosmic event of the year – definitely for the U.S.A. who even claim it as the ‘Great American Eclipse’, the only country on its Totality Path.
Just look at how fired-up the atmosphere (mirroring the astro-sphere) within and from the States is these days….!

The ecliptic New Moon – with fiery LEO MARS! – also creates a Grand Fire Trine which is ‘a good thing’, i.o.w. a growth opportunity in spirit-in-action. Where? How? Hang in, we’ll get to the specifics further down.

MERCURY retro (Aug 12 – Sept 5), now in full swing (moving faster backwards after the initial ‘U-turn’) brings Awareness and IN-sight, as a mindful witness, ob-serving the ‘Big Show’, RE-minding us to look at what we might have been blind-sighted by / to…

Lion Eye Covering

Blinded by the Light – of too much bling and ‘shiny objects / subjects’ that court for our attention, incl. narcissistic ‘selfie’ bling – this is the shadow of LEO.

A Solar Eclipse is quite simply, factually, a Light – Shadow – Light process.

The extra strong LEO Solar side and August SUN gets dramatically ‘occulted’ / overshadowed by the late LEO MOON, before LUNA moves on.

Lioness Energy stepping in front of Lion Presence….?
Let’s check out what that ecliptic process between SUN / MOON and Earth symbolizes… 
Heavens, give us signs! And they do…

An exact, super-duper NEW MOON, happening on the Initiation Point from LEO to VIRGO.
So much concentrated energy in all of this.

 

What a concentrated Eclipse Initiation Portal:

All within 27 hrs!
AUG 21:

  • Maximum Eclipse 11:21 am PDT (Occultation of the SUN by the MOON shadow starts at 9:08 am PDT)
  • NEW MOON at 11:30 am PDT, at 28° 52′ LEO.
  • The MOON crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR at 1:25 pm PDT.

Aug 22:

  • The SUN crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ into VIR at 3:20 pm PDT.

The fact that the MOON eclipses the SUN 9 min before the New Moon yet the NM is aligned with the North Node of the Moon (rather than South Node which was the ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse on Feb 26) gives it a ‘hybrid’ quality:
On one hand, the Eclipse occurs technically at the VERY end of the old lunar cycle, as the ‘Dark Moon’, and that’s about endings and release.
On the other hand, the connection of the Eclipse with the North Node of the Moon where fresh energy can be found, gives it an energy of ‘Incentive’ for uplifting, higher vibrational end-of-LEO qualities.


I.o.w., Self Awareness is the way to let-go, and to renew!
Who am I? How do I operate?
What’s working here, and what isn’t healthy and doesn’t serve – let go!

Crystal (Clear Quartz, Lemon Quartz, and Hematite) activated Voyager Tarot Card II – Priestess – Can you see the Sphinx on the right side? Crystal Activation and Photo by Melanie


Being in the Integrity of the Body-Mind-Spirit Temple, and evoking qualities of …

The Priestess perhaps, who calmly observes, and is in alignment. She owes that to herself as in: ‘Higher’ / ‘Cosmic’ Self, and to those whom she is in service to.


She sees the world as symbolic, an oracle. “See yourself in where your attention goes.” and, deeper: “You are THAT.”

Sounds a bit ‘lofty’ and ‘far out’?
Let’s bring some other flavours and voices of Astro Archetypes in that are very influential in the Eclipse energy!

 

Could the Grand Fire Trine be a SoUlution?

Definitely a ‘Divine Intervention Opportunity’ – which needs to be activated (otherwise it’s just ‘sitting there’ like money on the bank account).

 

Who are the ‘Players’ in the Grand FIRE Trine?
Well, more than half of the Astro Archetypes!

  • URANUS stationary retro at 29° ARAUTONOMY:
    Set yourself FREE, and come alive (again).
  • MARS / North Node / MOON / SUN on the Sphinx Point – AGENCY (in AWARENESS) at 29° LEO:
    Do something that’s aligned for, and from your Self, from Self Awareness, and from the Spiritual Heart. After the re-boot, re-new and re-initiate your creative play. Be bright, alive, inspiring.
    The LEO Eclipse energy can be channeled through AQ on the other side of the spectrum:

    Your creativity feeds and inspires synergy in groups and humanity!
  • LILITH / SATURN retro stationary (going direct on AUG 25) at 21° SAGAUTHORITY:
    Be the author of your ‘story’. And invite the best in everyone – in freedom!

 

Ancient Sumerian Lilith Relief, with Owls & Lionesses – ‘her’ Entourage. ‘She’s a clawed and winged one herself, strong and wise – feared by those who she ‘triggers’.

The ECLIPSE that gets all the attention (SO LEO), yet it’also a strong LILITH – SATURN week and month:

LILITH will meet and pass SATURN on AUG 22!
…which is also a major ‘game changer’, and only happens every 12 1/2 years – last time in FEB 2005 in CANCER.

A ‘wildly feminine’ / instinctual energy passing the Archetype of authority – which in its SAG shadow (one of SATURN’s jobs is to reveal the shadow, and have us work through it) shows up as a saboteur of inspiration, a linear, judgmental, righteous, dogmatic ‘boss’ / patriarch.

Yep, the inner and outer SATURN gets also symbolically ‘eclipsed’, or at least passed, in ‘Wild SAG Flight / Ride’ by LILITH who will from then on take the lead for quite a while, while SATURN follows.

A new 12 1/2 year LILITH / SATURN cycle starts – now in late SAG – the realm of the Wise Ones. May they speak UP and lead ON!

Why does that remind me of the ‘nasty woman’ quote? Well, LILITH was in SCO when it was directed towards Hillary who has a massive SCO concentration, mostly in her ‘collective’ 12th House…

For all of us, it’s time to go beyond being blocked, caged in, and held back by old stories, paradigms, labels, dogmas, and beliefs that have (even historically) produced patterns of fear from moving forward, and fear of ‘the foreign’ / ‘the other’.

Perhaps we’ve over-compensated, by living a narrow trajectory of expectations, judgments, and projections of negativity, coming up with ‘game plans’ to control (and prevent) what SAG is really about: Trusting in the journey, the adventure of LIFE itself, and to follow our Heart.

Well, SATURN has definitely taught us a lot about all this, in the last 2 years since it’s been in SAG (until Dec 19, 2017) and recently retro, pushing us to be ‘done with inner obstacles on the journey’, such as old limiting beliefs, or at least to unburden ourselves from a big part of it.

 

Owl Freeing

Where and how have we let ourselves be kept small, caged in, and prevented from growing, and living in the fullness of our truth and our path?


Besides the Total Solar ECLIPSE, this is also a LILITH shift week and month, as ‘she’ takes flight, out of SATURN’s ring /cage.

SATURN is also having a ‘Change of Heart’ or at least, a change of direction, from inward-retro to outward-direct (on Aug 25) – but can’t catch up with LILITH who’s leading now.

Hopefully (prob. painfully) we would have experienced in the SATURN retro phase since early Apr how fear can hold us back, and how it’s legit to not move forward based on intuition. Also: an inner ‘wrap-up’ of walking around with blinders on (either too focused on something that’s just not realistic, or not seeing what’s possible / lacking perspective). Now we hopefully know more. Yet, don’t let your knowing turn into dogma.

With LILITH moving past SATURN, things are shifting, and our ‘Inner Wildness’, i.o.w. our intrinsically free True Nature leads us on the path onward, with heartful inspiration and radical inner trust.

The Grand FIRE Trine theme courtesy of LILITH / SATURN in late SAG (the ‘Integrity Point’ of the Zodiac) says: Claim Intrinsic AUTHORITY, 
Can’t hurt to invoke their Archetypes. Hint: SATURN likes ritual (putting intention into form).

“The Truth Shall set You FREE” is another LILITH – SATURN in SAG theme.
Truth about what???
Clues can be found in late SAG in your, or in a relationship’s / organization’s / city’s / country’s chart.

For the U.S., that’s in the country’s first house of identity.
LILITH / SATURN at 21° SAG exactly oppose the U.S. MARS at 21°22 GEM in their 7th house of ‘significant others’, i.o.w. other countries and individuals the country is partners or opponents with – who face them, and whom the country dialogues with.

“Why are there all these enemies to the State/s and within the State/s now?”
“What does that have to do with the GEM SUN / URANUS Trumpotus / ‘precedent’?”
“What’s with all that rhetoric?”
“In whom or what can we / they trust?” (SAG)?!

 

Here’s the U.S. chart for Illustration:

 

 

The ‘Encounter Axis’ in SAG – GEM for the U.S. (Trump was born with the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse on this axis!) brings up a few (may I understate) ‘inconvenient’ / shadowy issues to be discussed and brought to light.

Energetically / archetypally, the public figure of Trump is a catalyst who brings things into motion, the bad, the ugly, and perhaps through this ‘messy process’ the ‘good’, or neutrally put: the NEW that comes from it.

Why am I saying this?
This claimed ‘Great American’ TSE (and first Solar Eclipse over the U.S. in 99 years since 1918) catalyzes the 1st PLUTO Return for the U.S. (2020 – 2023) in the country’s history!

What does that mean?
A complete restructuring, to hopefully leading by example / from integrity, based on the core of foundational principles, incl. the essence of the American Constitution – but also and perhaps foremost: Natural Law.
Intense transformational years for the ‘Land of the Free’.

 

Prometheus – the Archetype of URANUS – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

Speaking of Freedom, in the meantime (2016/17) URANUS in late AR has been squaring the U.S. PLUTO.
A destabilizing, unsettling, traumatic, uprising, revolutionary, and ultimately liberating energy – as we’ve seen.

The TSE in late LEO is exactly (less than 2° off) opposite the U.S. MOON in late AQ (which URANUS is ‘at home’ in):
“WE the People”! 

Vs. ‘The One / the Elite / the Special Superstars’ who get all the attention and seem to have all the Agency and political power.

The TSE brings a RE-Boot in that regard.

The curtains of the LEO stage in the shadow ‘reality show’ of drama, narcissism, and ‘high maintenance’ are being closed – done with this act!

And opened again…
Who’s the agency of ‘the curtain’?

Well, the MOON – crossing like a curtain the ‘face of the SUN’.

Total Solar Eclipse with ‘Diamond Ring’ Effect

In a country the MOON represents The People (vs The Ruler/s = The SUN). And also The Feminine. LEO type strong women who aren’t shy to ‘roar’ from the Heart.

Makes me think of a provocative FB live with Brene Brown at the occasion of Charlottesville that I saw the other day. She pointed out the need for awareness (VIR) of undeserved white privilege (LEO), incl. NOT needing to deal with any discrimination, and the shadow effects of this core narrative of the country. And the polar opposite, woven into the country’s history: Dehumanizing and objectifying ‘the others’ so that they can be treated less than human (shadow of AQ).

Very apropos MOON in LEO to see passionate strong Feminine and ‘People’ Forces ‘roaring’ now, incl. privileged women, artists, actors, and many people who express their passion (not just against but FOR).

 

What comes ‘on stage’ when ‘the curtain’ is pulled up again?
A profoundly Re-NEWed end-of-LEO energy!
What could that look like?

  • Strength through Integrity.
  • A Leadership of the Heart.
  • Channeling Passion into Healing Activism.
  • Highest Potential of Working with Spirit.

Crystal (Carnelian and Jasper) activated Voyager Tarot Card XI Strength – Photo and Crystal Activation by Melanie

And: It’s an Initiation.


That’s what happens with Eclipses.
AND on the ‘Sphinx Point’ – the LEO – VIR cusp where this one occurs.
A double dose!


In other words, the change clearly doesn’t ‘happen’ immediately / automatically.
The heavenly signs are pointers and mirrors, they don’t ‘produce’ the ‘effects’.

It might take a while to change…
To ‘handle’ one’s fiery LEO passions, and channel them into Service from the Heart.
But things ARE quickening now. Lots of build-up.

A Total Solar Eclipse for a country has effects over years…
The Initiation is being initialized, with the U.S. TSE.


The same is true for a personal chart and life.
I.o.w. if you are affected by the TSE (esp. if you have your AC, SUN, MOON, or planets in late LEO) the ‘cosmic Heart surgery’ / resurgence is under way….

 

Here’s the TSE chart, with Grand Fire Trine incl. LILITH / SATURN, and the points of Autonomy – Agency – Authority.

Check out all that FIRE (Feuer in German) in the elemental table.

 

LEO NM 2017 TSE

 

The LILITH / SATURN theme of Intrinsic Authority (i.o.w., we know what’s going on, as we follow inner guidance and wisdom, have our ‘act together’, and walk our talk) ties well together in the Grand FIRE Trine, with

URANUS in ARIES, the Awakener Archetype –  which often acts through disruptive wake-up calls, and brings us radically into our AUTHENTICITY and AUTONOMY.
URANUS also feeds into the end-of-LEO ECLIPSE energy: A Radical Renewal of AGENCY in AWARENESS.

 

What else stands out in the Eclipse chart, and at this time of cosmic ‘weather’?

SIX Planets are presently retro:

MERCURY (until Sept 5), SATURN (until Aug 25), CHIRON, URANUS, NEPTUNE, and PLUTO (until Sept 28).

Lots of old ‘unfinished business’ to deal with, and ‘inner processes’ – an important internal / preparation phase, with:

MERCURY retro in VIR (until Sept 5):
RE-considering what hadn’t been in the discussion in a while.
RE-entering the conversation, about what hadn’t been shared in a while, from a place of VIR awareness. Also a RE-fining tools, and discerning what serves / is practical and useful and what isn’t.

SATURN retro in SAG (goes direct on Aug 25):
Cropping and pruning where less is more.
Wrapping up inner limiting beliefs, world views, and ‘old stories’.
Catching the saboteur.

CHIRON retro in PI:
Why / when do I go into a mode of overwhelm?

What’s the re-curring wave of this?
How do I self-medicate with addictions?
How can I be there for others as for myself (esp. when I feel ungrounded)?

URANUS retro in AR (just turned retro on Aug 2 – Aug is quite a Uranian month):
Inner Liberation sets us FREE – unconditionally.

NEPTUNE retro in PI:
Inner and Universe-all Oneness  – you are never alone.

Not being in inner division and as the ONE – makes us immune to ‘Divide et Impera’ agenda.

PLUTO retro in CAP (goes direct on Sept 28):
Inner timelessness, call of the ancestors, inner mastery, and resource-full living.

 

Blessings to You and ALL, for the Eclipse Season!

Let’s stay HEARTful, and connected in our HUMANITY!

* LILITH moves over the ‘Phoenix Point’ and enters SAG on Feb 13 (until Nov 8): The Transformed Feminine is Rising & Taking Flight! Call of the Wild and Free!

9 Feb

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; the 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 Archetype phantasies and projections in our Western societies.

 

Lilith (Sumerian) - Queen of the Night

Sumerian Lilith

 

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, maybe together with other LILITH ‘confidants’, rather than exiling and isolating oneself.

What’s with the ‘Black Moon LILITH’ which some astrologers associate with 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’d 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. Freedom ensues – very SAG.

Over the course of the last 1 ½ decades 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 guides us to ‘simply’ being in our true, Unconditioned Nature. Having said that, the ‘traditional’ LILITH effects can still play out.

LILITH, Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’ / Being in our ‘Unconditioned, Untamed Nature’ leaves deep, magical, transformational SCORPIO on Feb 13 (also shortly after the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse on Feb 10), to roam through wild and free SAGITTARIUS for 9 months, until Nov 8, 2017.

 

wolflilith

 

LILITH has a 9-year cycle, and hasn’t been in SAG since Apr – Dec 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, how has LILITH stirred 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?
And your SAG sides, to be infused by LILITH in the next while, can take you to new, more empowered, levels of freedom now. Ready??!

In SAG, LILITH will square the Nodal Axis (VIR – PI) throughout March, exact March 10, an extra-charged call for Alignment with what works for US (vs. getting pulled into toxic, addictive, overwhelming scenarios).

‘She’ will also (finally!) pass SATURN (happens every decade), in August. SATURN will be stationary then, and the Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 will carry that energy. LILITH surpasses restrictions and authorities, the ‘voice of daddy and the super-ego’. Even freer after that ‘hurdle’.

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 SAG (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.
