J A N U A R Y 3 0 T H, 2 0 1 9 !
I’ve not done well with my blog posts about live events that I do – mostly because I don’t do that much, but also because I am usually wrapped up in the momentum outside of “social media” to, well, be social with my work…
Next one up though, and I am “early” for posting here! Music + Art + Readings! My seeester @zanibmusic (on Instagram) will be performing alongside a number of other super talented musicians at Improper City in Denver, CO! I will be there with some goodies (dream catchers, prints), and it will be one of the last nights for the next pre-order on my first of many self-created + self-published Oracle Decks. These will go out on or around Valentines Day 🏹 Plus! I will be doing some readings (astrology + oracle/tarot) alongside my dear friend @mihanzz (on Instagram) too!
SO, if you’re around Denver on January 30th, swing by or a night of magic + love 🤩
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:
- Me. I offer various treats throughout the year, one being on Black Moon Lilith ONLY.
