Meaning of Lilith in Astrology
Lilith is not an astronomical object like the planets or the asteroid. It belongs to the group of fictional points. (Keep in mind that this is about Black Moon Lilith, there is an asteroid with the same name, but it refers to a different concept.)
Lilith is said to be the first wife of Adam, before God created Eve. Lilith was an independent, determined woman who knew what she wanted, and she was not willing to submit. Because she didn’t like the way Adam treated her, God punished Lilith and created Eve instead. Lilith was demonized, coursed, and patriarchy tried to destroy her need for dignity and independence. She married the king of the devils later according to Hebrew mythology.
In astrology, Lilith is associated with the shadow self, suppressed anger, rebellion, injustice, humiliation, helplessness.
