The Lilith archetype in astrology

Defining Lilith is almost impossible from our point of view, because Lilith, the Black Moon, is related to hidden, unknown and invisible superhuman powers. We can feel it, we can hear her whisper, but we cannot define her because we don’t really know her.

In this article we see the “consequences” of having Lilith in Leo from an everyday point of view. However, Lilith always reminds us that we cannot control her. Our job is to make her part of ourselves and allow her to act in collaboration with the rest of the parts of our being. When we do this, Lilith transforms into a true instinctive expert who perfectly uses the energies of the sign where she is and who, when necessary, does what we dare not do.

“My need for attention and recognition can lead to arrogance and manipulation to keep myself center stage.”

Lilith in Leo

Wherever Lilith is in our birth chart, she describes a number of qualities that are expressed in a different way than we are used to. It seems that Lilith unleashes a wild part of our nature. In Leo, Lilith wants to play and express herself creatively. The reasons for this? We need to read the entire birth chart. What we can be sure of is that there is a strong part of our nature that is extremely theatrical. And this comes out viscerally.

I see Lilith’s influence as essential to accessing our “genius.” However, Lilith’s energy is very intense and if we do not understand it we can fight it. Will we be able to integrate Lilith’s energy without self-destructing?

Some key aspects of Lilith in Leo include:


  • Expressive Creativity: Lilith in Leo often manifests as a strong desire for self-expression and creativity. Those with this placement may have a natural talent for the performing arts, such as acting, music, or dance.
  • Charismatic Presence: They tend to have a charismatic and magnetic presence. They can easily capture the attention of others and radiate confidence and charm.
  • Leadership Qualities: Lilith in Leo individuals often possess strong leadership qualities. They are confident in their abilities and have the potential to inspire and lead others.
  • Courage and Self-Assuredness: They are generally courageous and self-assured. This confidence can help them overcome challenges and stand out in various areas of life.


  1. Need for Recognition: Lilith in Leo individuals may have an intense need for recognition and attention. This need can sometimes lead to dramatic or attention-seeking behavior.
  2. Ego Conflicts: They may struggle with ego conflicts and excessive pride. This can lead to clashes with others and difficulty in accepting constructive criticism.
  3. Dramatic Tendencies: The desire for attention can result in dramatic or exaggerated behavior. They may become upset when they are not the center of attention.
  4. Conflict with Authority: They might resist authority figures and rules that they perceive as limiting their self-expression. This can lead to conflicts in various areas of life.

I already said that it is very important to read the rest of the birth chart to see more clearly the positive side of Lilith. For example, Lilith is able to show us the dark side of our Moon. When we don’t nourish ourselves as needed, Lilith becomes a constant and sharp reminder that keeps letting us know that there is something that is lacking in our lives. Therefore, learning Lilith’s language is essential to avoid confusing her howl with something devilish. Lilith is grotesque in our eyes, but in reality, she is a goddess who watches over the shadows, which is nothing more than a world unknown to us. Lilith is as much a mother as Eve, but she has other matters to attend to.
