Lionel Messi – Lilith in Cancer

The Lilith Archetype in Astrology 

Visit my astrology channel on Youtube.

In astrology, Lilith (or the Black Moon) refers to several different points in a birth chart, and its meaning can vary depending on the astrological system used. One of the most common Lilith points is Black Lilith or Asteroid Lilith, which is a position calculated from the Moon’s orbit. I personally use “true Lilith”, which can be calculated on by adding H13 in the “manual entry” section in Additional Objects when calculating the birth chart.

Lilith refers to a fictional point in the sky that represents the dark and mysterious part of the Moon. The Lilith we generally study in the birth chart is neither a planet nor an asteroid, but rather a point in the lunar orbit that is considered significant in astrological interpretation. The meaning of Lilith in astrology is generally associated with themes of rebellion, independence, sexuality, and the expression of the shadow.

It is true that wherever Lilith is found in our natal chart it describes the type of qualities and areas where others tend to project their own miseries onto us. That is why Lilith unleashes a wild part, since something inside us awakens viscerally seeking to redeem a great injustice. Taking this into account, we can imagine that Lilith’s influence has an evolutionary meaning and promotes the expansion of consciousness. Are we able to integrate Lilith’s energy without self-destructing? Or without letting ourselves be convinced that we are what other people’s unconsciousness projects in us?

“My emotional bond with family leads me to manipulate and control through guilt and victimization.”

When we talk about Lilith energy as “problematic,” we are talking about natural forces that do not act in synergy with the rest of the Being. With Lilith we feel that there is something unpleasant about ourselves, especially because of how others describe our natural self. Regardless of what others believe about these qualities, if we take what they tell us simply as “information,” we can discover an aspect of the self that contains great potential. Lilith says that we have full access to the qualities of the sign where it is located, in its purest and rawest expression.

The integration of Lilith is an arduous path that leads us to the pure embodiment of the qualities of the sign where it is found. We will be judged by them, especially by those who have difficulty assimilating them into themselves. However, Lilith is indomitable and leads us through prejudice, shame and fear, both personal and foreign, until we can express her energy freely from her.

PS: Let’s not forget that we ourselves can express in a very unpleasant way what another person’s Lilith awakens in us.

Lilith in Cancer

In Cancer, as the first sign belonging to the Water element, we discover the world of emotions. It can be said that we simply feel. We establish a relationship with the world and we create our personal universe. When Lilith is in this sign, emotions come from the primordial energy of Creation. The desire to form affective bonds is intense and it is possible that we seek to form a family almost obsessively. We want to take care… and to be taken care of. We want to feel protected and nurture ourselves with affection.

For Lilith in Cancer, the exploration of emotions is essential. It is true that we are going to form ties with the whole world and that, as a consequence, many times we discover that not all of them offer us the security that we so long for. In addition, it is possible that given the circumstances we are going through, we will feel a tremendous emotional reaction to what we are experiencing. It is possible that we have been rejected for being too emotional… They may have told us that we are suffocating the relationship, that we are too clingy, too emotional, too… too much! What happens is that Lilith wants us to connect with that part of Creation that gives Life to the incipient, to the inert, to mere thought. Lilith wants to make us feel! And when we meet individuals who are not connected to their emotions, they will cast their own shadow on us.

The rest of the birth chart can explain why it is important to feel our emotions without filters. The truth is that we should not be scared by them… despite the experiences that we have lived due to our emotional expression… But of course, rejection is unpleasant and Cancer, who seeks to “belong” to their environment, doesn’t like it at all! As a result, our emotions can become somewhat muted…

As I said before, Lilith in Cancer seeks to create emotional bonds. When she receives some emotional stimulation, she can become attached as if it was essential for her survival. Of course! These are Lilith’s first steps in the world of emotions. She connects us with the primary need of mammals. There is nothing better for Lilith in Cancer than to see newborn puppies when they are with her mother. It is the most natural thing in the world! Watching them can help you overcome any inhibitions caused by those who don’t understand you… because that primal need to be connected, to emotionally ask for what we need, is something natural to all mammals (and we are mammals). And Lilith in Cancer is able to access this energy and create emotional bonds, without having to ask permission for it.

Lilith is pure primordial energy and needs direction so that her strength does not take her where it is not convenient for her. It is very important to observe the position of the Moon to understand what our personal needs are and honor them so that Lilith’s energy leads us toward what truly nourishes us. If we add to this clarity our personal preferences (Venus) and what turns us on (Mars), Lilith in Cancer opens the door to a vast emotional flow that will allow us to take care of ourselves and everything we love in an exceptional way.

With this position, Lilith will teach us to detach ourselves from the past and to live the emotions of the moment. It is feeling ourselves and not being afraid of becoming emotionally interdependent instead of dependent. In this way, we create an infinite source of human warmth within ourselves, with our own color… and we give it without reservation, without having to do anything to make it happen.
