Black Moon Lilith in Cancer transit commences on April 14th until January 8th of 2023. The last time Black Moon Lilith stayed in Cancer was between June 2013, and February 2014. If you look back to that period and try to remember what happened in your life around that time and what life themes you had to deal with, you will better understand how this transit may influence you this time around. You are older and wiser at this point in life, and you are unlikely to think the same way about certain things; it is still a great way to mentally prepare for the upcoming period.
Black Moon Lilith is a geometrical point, like the Ascendant or Nodes of the Moon. Geometrically, Black Moon Lilith symbolises the empty focal (central) point of the Moon’s elliptical orbital path around the planet Earth (found within a void that falls between the Earth and the Moon’s orbital apogee as seen from Earth).
Black Moon Lilith takes approximately nine years to go around the zodiac, staying nine months in each sign. Her exaltation is in Scorpio, and her domicile is in Capricorn.
Black Moon Lilith is connected with maturity, especially emotional maturity, and seems to be involved in working with complex and intense feelings, jealousy and anger, to the point of inner balance, harmony, and self-empowerment. Her dark side is revealed in emotional outbursts of destructive anger, intense passion, emotional manipulation and disordered aggression. The Black Moon Lillith is associated with sexual energy, taboo, and deepest desires. Transits of the Black Moon Lilith help us to stand up for ourselves, even when it means getting in trouble.
If your natal Black Moon Lilith is in Cancer, then you will go through your Black Moon Lilith Return in the next nine months as the Black Moon Lilith will be conjunct your natal BM Lilith. During this time, you may be more aware of your blockages or issues around being able to stand up, speak out, or defend yourself, and you may be required to do those things in a way that stands out for you.
Black Moon Lilith in the Water Sign Cancer can be emotionally manipulative. When afflicted (especially by squares or oppositions with natal planets), it can bring up our insecurities to the surface and create challenges when dealing with feelings and emotional situations. Withdrawal and escapism are some of the common themes of the negative manifestations of the Black Moon Lilith in Cancer. Nevertheless, once we realise that we can change how we react to our own and other people’s emotions, we will be able to connect with others more profoundly and with greater satisfaction.
