When it comes to astrology, often times we put our focus into the positive traits of our signs. However, there is light and dark in everyone. Our Lilith sign, often referred to as a Black Moon Lilith is a placement that tells us about our dark side or our inner bad bitch. It’s not an official celestial body, instead it’s represented by the Lunar Apogee or dark side of the moon at the time of our birth. Many people write this sign off as being a one dimensional approach to our negative traits, but like the figure it’s name after, it’s more complicated than that.
Lilith was Adam’s first wife and although she’s viewed as sinful, she’s someone who stood up for herself and took control of her own power. In understanding who we are, we must recognize who we are at our dark times, specifically in times where we feel hurt or angry. In a more modern context, Lilith is Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” or Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know.”

If your Lilith is in Libra, you’re all about finding balance and harmony in life. However, this pursuit can be your downfall.

Make sure to seek out true and genuine people in your life and remember that balance isn’t always possible.
If your Lilith is in Scorpio, you’re someone who isn’t afraid to go deep with yourself. However, in doing so you may confront some demons and secrets that will cause havoc in your life.

If your Lilith is in Aquarius, you’re very progressive and non-judgemental. You often feel like the odd one out, which can make it tough for you to connect with friends and romantic partners.

Pisces is the sign that takes on characteristics of all other signs, which means in Lilith you can have trouble in areas of identity. Remember not to take things so personally and to take the time to figure out who you are.
