Lilith in 8th House: Synastry, Transit & Composite

Lilith is a fictious moon of the Earth. Its discovery is attributed to the astrologer Sepharial, who also gave it the name Lilith.

In astrology today, the Black Moon Lilith is considered a point which is the actual Moon apogee.

The Moon orbits around the Earth, and the point of its orbit farthest from the Earth is called apogee.

This point, known as the dark moon, is usually associated with sexual liberation and deep sexual desires.

It is also considered a powerful and dangerous feminine force.

This point is a point where we feel called to break the rules as if we were possessed by a dark force.

When someone’s personal planet is placed on your Black Moon Lilith, this usually means that you will be irresistibly drawn to this person or vice-versa.
