Let’s say someone has Lilith in Aquarius and someone who is an authority or has power over this person tells them that they no longer have the right to be free or independent and they can’t think freely as they like.

Here the Lilith will announce a full war on that authority or person who is oppressing the Lilith. The Lilith person will become aggressive, provocative, doing everything to annoy and destroy that authority. That’s why I do believe that Lilith is the thing inside of us that we simply have to be and if our right is taken from us then Lilith will lash out on everyone.

Drow-  In a race that has a traditional, set look, I really like to play with variance in skin tones, hues, hair colors and textures so as to highlight the genetic diversity that would be present.  I like to give assumed features like the generic elf ear unique shapes and tilt and unless two characters are related, I really try to push that distinction so that a race that can tend towards blandness feels broader, more interesting, and more realistic.

These are some characters from probably the best D&D game I’ve ever played.  The elfess with the facial scar is Lilith, and I played the guy with the big spider-shaped scar on his chest, Zyrus.  I wanted to play an underdog type character and rise up through the system, so I went with a very average looking male in training to become a wizard.  He was rude, blasphemous, ambitious and insensitive, and just a blast to play.  He got involved with Lilith, a priestess of Lolth and it went about as well as a heathen carrying on with the zealous acolyte of a murder-godess can go.

I’ve always loved Drow for some reason, so this game was right up my alley.  It was a lot of fun to design a world that is so different from traditional, pristine fantasy.  Thinking about how a matriarchal, evil society (and later a matriarchal good society) would realistically work was so so fun, and I still plan on doing some more art with actual armor at some point in the future, especially since Lilith was such a boss.

Lilith - Aspects

Sun: Lilith / Sun aspects are about developing a healthy ego in terms of the input of the natural wild that exists within the body and world around them. They need to learn that trying to control the wild will earn them grief, while supporting and directing it will teach them to work with it and become more whole.

Moon: Lilith / Moon aspects indicate that the emotions are involved in an inner conversation with the uncontrollable natural feminine or wild within them. This could lead to mood swings / being moody if ungrounded or to living on the full spectrum of emotional possibilities available to them if grounded.

Mercury: With these aspects, the mind and thought processes are conversing with the inner wild instinct. These people need to let instinct guide their inner minds and curiosities, and allow their minds to learn to function in unique, non-rigid ways. Deep and analyzing levels of perception / sensory input await those who allow Lilith to inform their minds.

Venus: Lilith / Venus aspects bring the need for a person to learn about relationships, values, resources, and money by twisting instinct. People may look good on paper but if they don’t smell right, forget them!! It’s critical with these aspects to feel in the body what people, activities, opinions, and choices are right.

Mars: Lilith / Mars aspects are about the conscious will and desire of a person being in contact with their inner wild. Mars is pretty instinctive without Lilith, and so the task is to make sure Mars’ reactivity is informed not by knee-jerk or rote but in line with what is best for them going forward. Lilith offers Mars the wisdom of the natural world to go with its get-up-and-go energy.

Jupiter: Lilith / Jupiter aspects give an insatiable, ravenous sexual energy but also a real need for those physical reactions to be tantric. Sex has to bring one in contact with the divine, which is similar to Lilith / Neptune. But where Lilith / Neptune is fantasy forming, yearning, unrequited, and ultimately celibate, Lilith / Jupiter has to be very, very physical. If this aspect is not channeled into sex, then it becomes a very zealous approach to spirituality.

Saturn: Lilith / Saturn aspects indicate that the person’s maturity and structure function needs to be taught by the uncontrolled, instinctive wild of Lilith. Any rigidity that does not serve as a being on all levels must be reworked in order to allow Lilith’s primal wisdom to shine through. Lilith here needs to learn from Saturn that structure and a firm foundation can serve her purposes well.

Uranus: Lilith / Uranus aspects bring into conversation the need to be free and the need to be wild. The originality of Uranus can teach Lilith to leave behind situations that don’t serve her, and Lilith can teach Uranus to get back in the body and not get stuck in the head - too much detachment and objectivity leads to disconnection, after all.

Neptune: Lilith / Neptune aspects show the inner conversation between the surrender function and the inner wild. Connecting to nature is a primary tool for each archetype, and so people with these aspects need to get out and sit on rocks, surround themselves with nature and forms of wildlife. Much information that will help them stay conscious of having / being in a body is available through such activities.

Pluto: Lilith / Pluto aspects are about trying to figure out who gets to be strong and when. Within a person, Pluto needs honesty and truth, and Lilith needs autonomy, equality, and respect. Pluto can learn about honoring the passing and changing rhythms of their natural world while Lilith can learn from Pluto about sticking to guns when conviction and determination are needed. Both are and can be strong if the wild within the person is recognized and honored.

AC / DC: Lilith in aspect to the horizon says that relationships and self-definition carry Lilith’s themes in the person. Others to be played with need to be chosen through a process of opening to and trusting instinct. If they are not, sticky relationship issues can result they may make a person wish they could flee situations that aren’t working. If there is a pattern of this, check with how people are chosen to play with and why.

IC / MC: Lilith in aspect to this angle brings a need to know / honor the wild within the home and work environments. Instinct and inner, visceral wisdom need to come into play when it comes to how work is chosen and approached as well as how family, safety, and security are dealt with. Work and home relationships can stir up Lilith’s themes / issues and people with these aspects need to trust themselves to make the right decisions regarding balancing home and work no matter what.

Nodes: Lilith aspecting the Nodes indicates that developing a healthy relationship with the natural wild within has been an issue in many lives. These people need to shed cultural labels that get affixed to those who live Lilith stories and tap into the truth about humans - we are the extensions of the natural world, we all carry the energy of the uncontrollable wild within us, and we all need to make peace with who we really are.

Chiron: Lilith / Chiron aspects put the person’s energy antenna in a conversation with their need to relate to the natural world as an extension of it. A lot of emotional reactivity can result if the person feels threatened by others. What’s needed is that all possible expressions of humans be allowed in principle and honored, but that the person guides themselves to the right situations and experiences based on trust of instinct and of the body itself.
