What Your Lilith Sign Says About You

In a world that wants everyone to conform, it’s more important than ever to subvert expectations. And if you’re ready to embrace your villainous side, Lilith can give you that power. Lilith, also referred to as "Black Moon Lilith," is an astrological point in your birth chart that encourages you to discover the taboo side of your personality. Lilith specifically shows where you have hidden your true desires from the world to avoid ridicule or abandonment. This is sometimes referred to as your shadow side–and it shows all things that are forbidden in life.

Your Black Moon Lilith isn’t a planetary placement like your sun or moon sign–it’s calculated based on where the furthest point of the moon, a.k.a the dark side of the moon, is in your birth chart. Everyone’s energy is unique, and your birth chart can show you the cosmic influences that are coloring the world around you. Lilith reveals your deepest sexual and romantic desires, encourages you to accept the unsavory sides of yourself that you deny out of shame or fear, and reveals what’s lurking underneath your carefully controlled exterior.

Read on to learn more about Black Moon Lilith’s significance in astrology and discover how to use Lilith for spiritual empowerment in life, love, and more.

In astrology, Lilith holds the power of the dark and wild feminine energy that is present in all living things. It’s also said that your Lilith placement can reveal the truth behind your desires and impulses, particularly those that are hidden in your subconscious mind. “Lilith displays the quality of personal independence and a refusal to submit to another or compromise one’s beliefs…as well as shows potential problems involving sexual fear, rejection, anger, and suspicion,” professional astrologer Demetra George writes in her book Asteroid Goddesses.

Lilith represents both desire and fear. It shows all the ways in which you can fearlessly express yourself and your aura energy. All of the wild and taboo sides of your personality can be found in Lilith, and this placement holds major power when it comes to the art of seduction, charm, persuasion, and getting what you want. However, Lilith can also reveal how you let fear of rejection cloud your judgment and show where you seek control to maintain power. Lilith has a powerful and transformative dual nature, so it’s important to strike a balance between finding your inner power and healing your inner wounds.

Who Is Lilith, Anyway?

Lilith is a mythological figure that has been portrayed in the cultures of many historical regions and religions. Some revere Lilith as a powerful goddess, while others warn of her dark demonic powers. References to Lilith can be found in texts from Sumeria and Babylonia; however, her most famous portrayal comes from Jewish folklore. According to Hebraic tradition, Lilith was the first wife of Adam and refused to submit to his authority to rule over her. When given the choice between subjection and freedom–Lilith chose a life of solitude and was banished from paradise.

Lilith would later become a symbol of dark feminine energy, and her image was designed to strike fear in the hearts of men. Some depictions of Lilith show her as a demoness who preys on young mothers and brides out of jealousy of her rejection. Other tales tell of her power to seduce and destroy any man she set her sights on. And while it’s true that there’s a tremendous amount of repressed anger in the story of Lilith and your Black Moon Lilith placement in astrology, there’s also tremendous potential to use the otherworldly power of Lilith for self-healing, deeper romantic connections, and spiritual growth.

What Your Lilith Sign Says About You

Lilith in Aries

Lilith in Aries represents a daring and assertive nature who makes up the rules as they go. You’re incredibly confident in yourself and find it easy to channel your energy into action. Nothing and nobody can stand in your way. You have a commanding presence, and others can easily recognize your raw talent. This is just one reason you always seem to get what you want, but be careful. Sometimes, your need to prove yourself can spill over into hypercompetitiveness. Healing your Lilith in Aries is about embracing all of your flaws, imperfections, and shortcomings as part of your whole self–and learning to love what makes you special.

Lilith in Taurus

Lilith in Taurus loves to indulge. Life is beautiful, and you’re going to spend as much time as you can enjoying yourself. Lilith in Taurus embodies all things sensual and materialistic, which is why you work hard to provide for yourself. Once you set your mind on something you desire–it’s only a matter of time before you have it. You love spoiling yourself whenever you get the chance, partly because you don't trust other people to do it. You might find it difficult to let down your walls and allow people to take care of you. The key to this placement is learning to let yourself be soft and vulnerable in someone else's presence.

Lilith in Gemini

Lilith in Gemini is one of the brightest and bubbliest placements a person can have. It represents someone who constantly seeks out emotional and mental stimulation in love. You have a curious mind and an open heart, fueling your desire to connect and meet new people. There’s just something about your style of communication that entices everyone you meet, and you find it easy to shift your energy to fit the mood of any situation. However, this superficial communication is designed to keep you at arm's length from other people, and it can be hard to get deep with you sometimes. Your goal should be to find your voice and learn to embrace your true personality.

Lilith in Cancer

Lilith in Cancer symbolizes intense emotional sensitivity, depth, and psychic abilities. You’re very aware of the energy around you and are able to pick up on other people's emotions and secret feelings without even trying. This makes you an incredibly empathetic person…with a terrible habit of giving more in relationships than you get. Lilith in Cancer can get caught up in pouring emotional energy into all the wrong places in life in order to avoid confrontation. As a Lilith in Cancer, your goal is to demand your worth and hold your boundaries firm without resorting to passive-aggressive communication tactics.

Lilith in Leo

Lilith in Leo represents a personality that is dripping with magnetism and dramatic flair. You’re a fiery force to be reckoned with who won’t be ignored. The power of your aura energy comes directly from the Sun, giving you a natural sense of confidence. However, it can be easy for you to get caught up in your own ego or refuse to share the love out of fear of being overpowered. In the past, you've had partners that acted out of jealousy or made you feel small. Your path toward spiritual growth comes with accepting that the right relationships will encourage both you and your partner to shine your brightest.

Lilith in Virgo

Lilith in Virgo reflects a strong need for control, order, discipline, and perfection. You make being on top of your game seem so effortless and easy. In reality, it comes with a lot of hard work and sacrifice. Unlike some Lilith signs that have trouble asserting authority, Lilith in Virgo can be overly domineering and critical of people around them. This doesn’t come from a place of superiority but rather from a fear of not being accepted. You can be so nitpicky about yourself and your romantic partners that you never let yourself enjoy being happy. Love is imperfect. It’s time to loosen up a little and admit you can’t control everything that happens.

Lilith in Libra

Lilith in Libra craves harmony and balance in life, yet you can't help but indulge in your vices. Venus rules over the energy of Libra-which explains your strong and raw feminine energy. You're a very seductive soul who easily attracts new opportunities and relationships. And people like to see you succeed. However, you have a compulsion to obsess over what people think and compare yourself to others, which can cause you to be vain and selfish sometimes. Love isn’t a game that you can play and win. If you have your Lilith in Libra, you need to learn to be more selfless in love and allow yourself to settle into the natural rhythm of things.

Lilith in Scorpio

Lilith in Scorpio has a very magnetic aura energy. You are very comfortable in your own skin and aren’t afraid to use your charm and allure to get what you want. People recognize your authority and power, and many desire to be close to you so they can have a taste of it for themselves. You may have previously engaged in relationships with people who tried to control you or force you to dull your shine. This has given you a deep need to hide your true needs and desires from others. Learn to embrace authenticity and honesty instead; your twin flame won't hold your past against you.

Lilith in Sagittarius

Lilith in Sagittarius is the wild and carefree flirt of the zodiac. You have a curious mind and an open heart, which fuels your desire to explore the world around you. This gives you warm and bright energy that other people can’t help but fall for. And while you love the attention you get from others, you’re not as keen on settling down. Lilith in Sagittarius may feel threatened or even terrified by the idea of traditional romance or dating. You can be fickle in what you want-causing you to miss out on the things that are really good for you. If your Lilith is in Sagittarius–your goal is to challenge your preconceived ideas of love and embrace the thrill of not knowing what comes next in love.

Lilith in Capricorn

Lilith in Capricorn signifies a strong drive for achievement, acclaim, reverence, and success. You pride yourself on your unrelenting work ethic and constantly push yourself to do more. Lilith in Capricorn can be very traditional and stubborn in their ideas surrounding romance, which can come off as cold or detached to some. And while you're not willing to settle on your standards, and you shouldn't, it might benefit you to open up your worldview from time to time. You can get so caught up in appearing to have it all together that you forget to enjoy yourself and indulge. Focus on slowing down and getting in touch with what you truly desire in life outside of other people's expectations.

Lilith in Aquarius

Lilith in Aquarius embodies the spirit of a rebellious dreamer. You’re a provocateur who isn’t afraid to say what’s on your mind, and you love to shock people with your daring ideas and visions. That mysterious air about you is certainly an advantage when it comes to love and romance. There’s openness to new ideas and sharing in others' experiences with this placement. However, your fear of being too odd or unusual can prevent you from showing the darkest sides of your inner world. This fear of being authentic and raw with others can cause you to become jaded in love and put up barriers. Release negative thoughts you have surrounding your worth and livability.

Lilith in Pisces

Lilith in Pisces represents heightened romanticism and connection to spiritual gifts. You know how to get deep with people and understand them like nobody else can. There's a natural grace and effortlessness to your aura; however, you’ve got rose-colored glasses in love that can cause you trouble. Lilith in Pisces can be a bit naive and overly optimistic in relationships–which can lead to selfish behavior from time to time. Don't get caught in the trap of losing your individualism and identity in your relationship. It's important to maintain strong boundaries in order to find your joy.
