Black Moon Lilith is a point in the astrological birth chart that relates to our inner wild: the side of us that refuses to be tamed. It can be read as one’s unfettered sexual drive or shadow, though I feel it’s only one aspect of our shadow.
I never read a birth chart without looking at Black Moon Lilith, and TD Jacobs‘ work on Lilith has given me new perspective. One of the stories of her, the first wife of Adam, is how she was punished for her rejection of Adam with mortality for her children, which was really a cruel price for self-agency when you think about it.
