Mars conjunct Black Moon Lilith in Aquarius (6 deg)
This is volatile energy. Mars is the activator, and in this case, what’s being activated is Lilith’s agenda of female rebellion and empowerment. But we must remember that she is feared and disliked by many - she is the outsider, especially in Aquarius. So power and liberation will come at a price.
Anger is part of BML’s vibe, because she was cast out. This is the anger of not being accepted, of being repressed, of being denied. Mars is, of course, about anger. So rest assured that what comes out today will be fuelled by this. Mars is also male energy and sexuality, so we may have a clash of the sexes or confrontation over a sexual issue. Lilith could act out by expressing herself in ways that threaten men. Or, she could be threatened herself.
The best-case scenario is an opportunity to take action and express part of yourself that’s honest and makes others uncomfortable. This can be about liberation, but expect resistance or even anger from some quarters. Some interpretations of BML try to paint a pretty face on her, but in my experience she is not pretty. Even when her power is being expressed in the most constructive way, there will be people who react strongly and unpleasantly to her, because she is strong and unpleasant (although she can be powerfully seductive).
Dawn Bodrogi said it best in this post from her site, The Inner Wheel:
“…I’ve yet to discover a true positive side to her aside from the raw power which emerges from her intimate connection to occult abilities, and her propensity to distribute post-rage clarity…the only way we can tap into the great power of BML is to sacrifice our fears, terrors and hungers.”
And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with “not pretty.” Not everything is pretty. Not everything is positive. Sometimes you have to go dark.
If you feel this conjunction (if you have anything from 5 to 6 deg of the Fixed signs) consider what needs to be liberated and why others might find it unacceptable or uncomfortable. You may be confronted, or you may be the one doing the confronting.
