Vanessa Lamorte, M.A. and myself, Marlena McGuigan, M.A. are at it again! This time, we are diving into some further detail. Last time, we focused on the “bigger picture” – the One stream. What about the parts making up that whole? What are the main streams of consciousness that repetitively refuel and want to point us back to our former conclusions? We both drew cards from the decks that spoke to us, and we simplified our askings into two main areas: a predominant stream of consciousness + how it informs the lessons we are currently being called to learn…
Before we get into our thoughts on the current dynamics, gaze into the photo and choose a card you are drawn to for your New Moon in Cancer focus! At the end of this reading, your intuitive message will be revealed to you. Don’t skip ahead!

What the fuck is Black Moon Lilith? Or…shall I say who??
Black Moon Lilith is one of the feminine archetypes that uses the word ‘fuck’ regularly, doesn’t give a fuck regularly, and says, “yep, I am who I am, and you are sure as hell not going to stop me from continuing on my own way.” As the story goes, this lovely woman was Adam’s first wife. Too unruly and bent on being treated and respected as an equal (rather than a subordinate to a male), Lilith rebelled and/or was self-exiled from the world of Adam. Adam’s Eve came along and things were much more peaceful for him. But Lilith still lives…
As an archetype, at least. Whether the story was ever “real” or not makes no difference when talking about Black Moon Lilith in this way. The energy of the story essentially points out part(s) of our consciousness(es) that demand(s) respect and equality. Specifically, it leans toward our feminine aspects – regardless of race, sexuality, gender, or what have you. You know, all those things we read about in the EOE clause from “Equal Opportunity Employers.” How do we understand our “feminine” nature, though? That’s what Black Moon Lilith urges everyone to ask themselves.
What part of you feels exiled? What part of you feels repressed somehow? What part of yourself does your culture or society attach words like shame, degenerate, outcast, or taboo to? These are Black Moon Lilith energies crying to be recognized as valid and equal. She is an archetype that we can all relate to. In astrology, she is one of the feminine asteroids that represents our most feared and yet most desired parts wanting to be bridged into wholeness. She takes 9 years and 9 months to return to her original position, each cycle.
Where is your Black Moon Lilith patterning? How does her energy show up in your life? If you want to look more deeply into this archetype, I recommend two sources:
Thanks for reading!
Vanessa Lamorte, M.A. and myself, Marlena McGuigan, M.A. decided it was time to do a joint spread on the current collective energies. Many of our individual stories seem to shy away from, collide with, and/or collude with various parts of the collective stream – all of the time. What is that stream offering us all? What are we as a collective experiencing and/or tapping into right now? We both drew cards from the decks that spoke to us, and we simplified our askings into three main areas: the current collective conscious; the current collective unconscious; and the lessons we are all currently being called to learn…
