Lilith conjunct Mars in Libra, sex, transgender

BLACK MOON LILITH, the DARK GODDESS, the death bringer, the shunned dark side of the Feminine, the “other half” which Western Patriarchal culture tried to kill off and suppress is  back with a vengeance. She is not a vampire as is popular portrayed. She does not suck blood and kill people. She sucks semen from sleeping men and impregnates herself with it. The Patriarchy twisted this into her being a demoness who gives birth to and then kills 100 of her own children every day. Of course this is just a metaphor for “wet dreams” and against masturbation, which the Jews prohibit. The Egyptians, their bosses for three hundred years worshipped male masturbation. That’s where the dislike of it comes from.

Lilith is represented by Black Moon Lilith which in Astronomy is not a planet but the Moons furthest point in its orbit around the earth. The Moons orbit is elliptical and therefore its path around the Earth each month has two distinct points. One point in the orbit is the closest distance to earth, called the Perigee and the furthest point in the orbit, called the Apogee. Some Astrologers only work with the True, oscillating Lilith point or the  “mean Lilith” which is a balance point. There is also an Asteroid named Lilith to further complicate matters. 

Historically one treatise on Lilith comes from the Left emanation,  mystical writing of which predates the Zohar a book of Jewish mysticism. It  states that Samael {Satan or Lucifer whose name means the Light Bringer} and Lilith, who must actually be VENUS as Venus Lucifer when she is in her Morning Star aspect, are in the shape of an androgynous  being, double-faced, born out of the emanation of God, and corresponding in the spiritual realm to Adam and Eve, who were likewise born as a hermaphrodite “were like the image of Above” of an androgynous deity.

Lilith, Tara Greene, Astrologer

Lilith (1892) by John Collier

Black Moon Lilith {Mean Node} will be in Libra from August 252015 to May 212016 

Lilith conjuncts Mars exact  December 1st at 10+ degrees of Libra. 

Lilith was the first woman and her conjunction to Mars in Libra may bring out men’s fear of women being equal. But to me it is a sense of JUSTICE in the Tarot #8. 

Lilith the  Dark Goddess deserves to have her rightful place reinstated to balance out the imbalance in women’s roles. Men have lived out of balance in rigid roles as well. 

This is a strong marker of Equality of the sexes. New Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau immediately created his Liberal cabinet of half men and half women. “Because it’s 2015” he said. 

This is very apt aspect with the issues of transgender, gender neutrality and fluid sexuality being Hot martial topics.

 Lilith is the stronger here as Mars is in Venus’ sign and weak. Many LGB are not accepting transgenders posing as women most famously because of Caitlyn Jenner being given womanly status.Many feminists are also rejecting transgender male to females as being accepted as women or lesbians.

This is a very political debate and for me it is totally based on the pharmaceutical industry crating and controlling the issue and is therefore another version of the status quo, another Patriarchal Frankenstein monster, creating a better woman from a man. My husband artist Napoleon Brousseau is writing a book about this. This debate will go on for a long time. I respect people feeling like they may feel like they were born in the wrong body but being androgynous, which is originally the way we were created ,is a perfect thing in itself.  It is the symbol of wholeness.

Be both sexes in one,  be yourself don’t change anything. Transgender in its present status furthers stereotypes about men and women. 

We are all seeking that magical equal relationship. This is a very powerful potent aspect of that. 

If you have planets with in 5 -15 degrees of Libra this aspect may help you to take more action to balance both your male and female sides. All Cardinal signs at those degrees Aries, Cancer, Capricorn which is the Cardinal cross degrees are also ignited by this aspect. 

Many strong women have Lilith Mars aspects in their astrology charts. 

Lilith stays 9 months in one sign correlating to the Moon and gestation. 

There is a longer and different take on Lilith in Libra at the Cosmic Intelligence by Agent 55 Vanessa Guazzelli Paim who has written a book on the subject http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/11/15890/
