19 FEBRUARY 2017, SAGITTARIUS
With Black Moon Lilith tightly next to this 3rd quarter moon in Sagittarius, deep inner wisdom helps us move through belief battles. Adam and Lilith (not Eve) were the first man and woman of Biblical creation, and were created as equals. Yet new gods overthrew the original gods of the Garden of Eden, and their rules demanded that Lilith become subservient to Adam. Lilith being a woman strong in her authenticity, truth and equality refused to submit and made the ‘no win’ choice to leave and live the life of a hermit holding onto the original values. Many negative untrue stories were spread about her behind her back and she had to stay strong in her self-belief until the time came when she returned to the Garden of Eden to help liberate the feminine first and the masculine second from the suffering of inequality. At this 3rd quarter Moon in Sagittarius, Lilith’s influence might bring situations that feel like ‘no win’, and difficult choices come up. Lilith teaches us to dig deep for the values that we say ‘yes’ to; our own authentic deep down truths. When you find your inner yes, you will know what to say ‘no’ to. In the first half of the myth when Lilith leaves Eden she knows in her gut she needs to act straight away, but in the second half of the myth, she returns after eons of reflecting not only on her own truth, but also the truth of others to find a new ‘yes’ that can respect all points of view, even while still fighting for her own.
