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 Sagittarius 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.

Lilith in Sagittarius

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 Sagittarius, Lilith is adventurous and goes out to seek experiences. 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 seeks to explore. 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 possible meanings of Lilith in Sagittarius include:


  1. Spiritual Exploration: Lilith in Sagittarius is often associated with a deep and meaningful spiritual exploration. Those with this placement may naturally be drawn to various philosophies and spiritual beliefs, allowing them to expand their understanding of the world and their connection to the divine.
  2. Inspiration and Optimism: They often have an optimistic outlook and enthusiasm for life. Their ability to see the positive side of things can serve as a source of inspiration for themselves and those around them.
  3. Independent Mind: They have the ability to develop an independent and critical mind. Their desire to question and explore ideas can lead them to acquire a wide range of knowledge and perspectives.
  4. Adventure and Travel: Lilith in Sagittarius can lead to a life full of adventures and travel. Their thirst for exploration can open doors for experiencing new cultures and places, enriching their life.


  1. Rebellion and Nonconformity: They may feel in conflict with social norms and expectations. The pressure to conform to the established order and follow the rules can clash with their desire for independence and intellectual rebellion.
  2. Impulsiveness: The constant quest for new and exciting experiences can make them impulsive and careless in decision-making. This can lead to issues if they don’t find a suitable balance.
  3. Challenges with Authority: Challenges to authority can generate conflicts in their lives, especially when they face authority figures trying to impose restrictions on their freedom.
  4. Belief Instability: Their constant pursuit of truth can lead to frequent changes in beliefs and values. This can be a source of inner conflict and challenge their sense of identity.

The important thing with Lilith is not to be afraid or ashamed to see that wild part of human nature. The more we get to know her, the more we understand her and she finally shows us her constructive potential. Lilith, by nature, expresses the qualities of the sign she is in without apology. The conflict is within us, when we seek to repress it for any reason. What others say about what we express from our Lilith is usually our own Lilith sending us a message that it would be a good idea to listen to. Essentially, Lilith says uncensored what we really believe about ourselves. And when we don’t hear her message within us, she will speak through others. She is that powerful!

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 in Sagittarius. For example, Lilith is able to show us the dark side of our Moon. Within the unconscious hide emotional needs that have not been nourished as we needed. 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.

It is essential to study our natal Moon to direct the energy of Lilith according to our true emotional needs. That is what Lilith’s energy seeks. The Moon describes what makes the maturation process possible, which involves abandoning the childhood state of dependence on the adult, the caregiver, the maternal figure. This does not mean separating ourselves from our family or emotional ties, but rather transforming the state of “waiting to be provided by an external source” and moving towards a state of emotional fluidity. The same happens with the other planetary positions.

It is important to remember that the interpretation of Lilith in a specific sign is only one part of a person’s birth chart, and astrology considers many other variables, such as Lilith’s position in the houses and her aspects to other planets and points, among other things. Furthermore, the personalized interpretation of a birth chart must be done in a holistic way that can consider all of these factors together.
