In astrology, there are three different types of Lilith: Black Moon Lilith, Asteroid Lilith, and the lesser-known Dark Moon Lilith. While the three versions of Lilith offer up powerful images (Asteroid Lilith’s energy is the desire to be man’s equal and not his submissive, and Dark Moon Lilith is an angry, hurt Lilith that brings an energy that can be used constructively and creatively instead of destructively), it is Black Moon Lilith that draws out our sexual energy, needs, and prowess.
“Black Moon Lilith is our sexual side, our independent power,” explained Wilma Burnham, master reiki healer and card reader, in a phone interview with POPSUGAR. “How we express her comes out in house, sign, and aspects.”
Black Moon Lilith, said Burnham, is a representative of a special astrological point – not a body like an asteroid or a planet – and is known as the “Forbidden Fruit.” She represents a side that people attempt to suppress. With Lilith, sex is a powerful weapon. It’s not only about procreation and duty; it is about sexual deviancy, sex that pushes boundaries, taboo sexual acts, and the blurring of gender.
In addition to ruling your own sexual energy, Black Moon Lilith is also important when it comes to sexual compatibility, added Burnham.
“[Lilith] is especially important in synastry – the meddling of two people’s charts to see how compatible they are,” she added. “Lilith aspects bring obsession and a magnetic draw as well as amazing sex.”
So, if you want to know if sex with your new partner is going to be mind-blowing, don’t forget to add Lilith to the equation when you’re diving into their zodiac for signs of compatibility.
