Lionel Messi – Lilith in Cancer

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

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 Cancer, Lilith is pure emotion. She really feels what she feels. 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 affectionate. 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 Cancer include:


  1. Intuition and Empathy: Lilith in Cancer can enhance intuition and empathy. Those with this astrological placement may have a strong sensitivity to others’ emotions and a deep understanding of emotional needs.
  2. Connection to Home: This position can foster a strong connection to home and family. They may find satisfaction and security in domestic life and in caring for others.
  3. Instinctual Protection: Lilith in Cancer can awaken a strong sense of instinctual protection, especially toward loved ones. They can be passionate defenders of those they care about.
  4. Creativity and Care: This position can stimulate creativity related to the expression of emotions and caring for others. They can be creative in activities involving home, cooking, parenting, and emotional art.


  1. Extreme Sensitivity: One of the challenges associated with Lilith in Cancer is extreme sensitivity. They can be easily hurt and overwhelmed by emotions, making it difficult to manage stressful situations.
  2. Emotional Dependency: They may experience a tendency toward emotional dependency, which could lead to relationships where they give too much or struggle to establish healthy boundaries.
  3. Mood Swings: Lilith in Cancer can contribute to drastic mood swings, which can be challenging for both themselves and those around them.
  4. Need for Emotional Healing: Those with Lilith in Cancer may face the need to heal deep emotional wounds. This position can highlight past wounds that require attention and healing.

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.
