- Sun in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio: 14 deg
- Jupiter in Scorpio square Pallas in Leo: 14 deg
- Black Moon Lilith enters Aquarius and trines Venus in Libra
Jupiter squares the Sun/Pallas conjunction (exact on August 7th). Jupiter expands Leo's boldness and desire for attention. The Sun illuminates Pallas in Leo's big strategy or showy pattern. But the square is a tense aspect, which means the surge of confidence and public display may be exaggerated. There is something worth showing off here, but make sure your problem solving is sound, and not just about what looks impressive.
Black Moon Lilith into Aquarius takes this dark lady's outsider status to a whole new level. The disruptive woman/witch/symbol of taboo female power was always on the edge of society. In the sign of detachment and rebellion, she becomes even more separated from the collective.
Lilith truly does not care what others think of her, in this sign. Not that she ever really cared, but part of her deal is anger at being rejected for who she is (rage, actually). She's named after Adam's first wife who was exiled from the Garden, so there's always the lingering pain from being kicked out of paradise. But in Aquarius, she might be able to gain a measure of detachment. Which means that her energy (if misdirected) can become quite brutal and uncaring.
BML draws people's attention to what's uncomfortable or forbidden, regarding women's issues, women's sexuality and women's power. In Aquarius, she might rip the lid off something or express herself in bizarre ways. Having said this, she does begin this transit with a trine to socially-acceptable Venus in Libra. The gracious version of female energy (Venus) harmonizes with the no-so-gracious version, suggesting a moment where what's unacceptable or "crazy" can be expressed in a way that others can deal with. If Lilith's message is too unpalatable, people shut her out and she's screaming into the void. This trine allows her energy to translate, while she gives people-pleaser Venus an edge. Independence and compromise hold hands.
Lilith exits Aquarius for Pisces on May 3rd, 2019.
