The name Lilith originates from the ancient Mesopotamian mythology, where Lilith was a demon associated with the night. In Jewish folklore, Lilith is depicted as Adam's first wife who refused to submit to him and fled from Eden. This rebellious spirit and refusal to conform to societal norms are key themes associated with Black Moon Lilith in astrology.

This energy can be both destructive and transformative, depending on how it's channeled. It's associated with sexual energy, power struggles, and deep-seated fears and desires.

Black Moon Lilith is also linked with the darker aspects of our psyche that we often suppress or ignore. These can include taboo desires, repressed anger or resentment, and our deepest insecurities. By confronting and integrating these shadow aspects, we can achieve a greater sense of wholeness and personal power.
