Transit Lilith in 12th House

"I am capable of navigating through the depths of my troubled mind, using meditation and creativity as my guiding lights."

Transit Lilith in 12th House

12th House transits may coincide with periods where you seek an outlet from the pressures of everyday life. You may attempt to lose yourself through nonstop social activity or martyrdom to other people, or conversely, isolating the world.

Perhaps you develop negative coping mechanisms related to substance use or escaping into fictional or virtual worlds.

You may also disassociate from or lose touch with reality, pouring too much energy into fantasies that are unlikely or unhealthy.

You may experience this time as acedia, spiritual depression, or a dark night of the soul, either rejecting traditional spirituality, or simply finding that your typical practices bring you no meaning or peace.

The key to using this transit effectively is to confront your troubled mind. Meditation and creativity can help you sift through the murk. This can also be a time to explore where your spirituality and sexuality meet, and practices such as BDSM or tantric sex can illuminate hidden corners of your psyche.

Black Moon Lilith represents a dark embodiment of divine feminine power. Fierce, raw, and primal, it’s the side of ourselves that refuses to be tamed, fights for its rights, and owns its desires.

Some may deny or repress these urges, associating them with shame, stigma, and disgrace. Others may overindulge or misuse these appetites through selfishness, destructiveness, or abuse. Meanwhile, others still may veer between these extremes, bottling up and exploding in a cycle of violence and guilt. As with all shadow selves, we must integrate the energies of Black Moon Lilith, and learn to express these parts of our personalities freely, mindfully, and purposefully.
