Today is the feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene, so I was inspired to write something on feminine energy. Venus is also going retrograde today, with the nodes of fate changing like clock work, so it's a big day energetically. Spikey energy like the thorn of a rose, vibrant and red as the lips of Lilith. I am feeling the healing energy of this retrograde.
Perhaps more creatively than anything else, I feel charged in many ways, impulsively, emotionally and raw. The persecution of being a woman is almost a right of passage, and this retrograde just feels angry for everything that is unjust.
Both Magdalene and Lilith are interesting figures, and I thought the perfect example of feminine energy to discuss on the day of the Venus retrograde. That demonic energy of empowered women must be channelling me today.
Lilith as we know her today, is often seen as a demonic figure and she's portrayed this way since biblical times. In such, Lilith was originally "created" for Adam, (in the Jewish faith) but due to their incompatibility, she was then replaced by Eve. Since then, she has been villainised, and even portrayed as a woman who stole babies and ate them. While I don't believe Lilith was real, I do however, believe that she portrays a woman who chose freedom over marriage and as such was persecuted for doing so.
Lilith is also a point in your astrology chart and an important one, so in order to get a full understanding of your chart, it is important not to vilify Lilith as this creates a shadow within. Black moon Lilith is a point in the moons orbit, it's sort of hidden. The mystery of Lilith is in a position that knows her value and self-worth. She doesn’t view herself as inferior to others, and sees no reason to, she is equal. So bluntly put, if you think negatively about the Lilith aspect of your chart, you're likely to be impacted negatively when it comes to your sense of self-worth.
Lilith babe with your eyes so bright,
Writing words of woe,
As Venus slips into your past,
To fight this broken world,
With fire and War,
The final trumpet is blown,
This battle shall commence,
To rid the earth of pestilence.
