Black Moon Lilith is on the move! Lilith is going to leave Aries and enter earthy Taurus on October 21st. What can we expect with Black Moon Lilith in Taurus?
What is Black Moon Lilith?
First, let's review what Black Moon Lilith is. It's the apogee, or highest point, of the Moon, or the farthest point away the Moon is from Earth in the Moon's orbit.
Black Moon Lilith has two positions, Mean and True/Oscillating. The movement of Lilith is suuuper wonky, so the True/Oscillating is the exact position while the Mean is the averaged out position. You can assess both in the natal chart (thought True/Oscillating tends to have more weight for most of us).
For transits, Mean Lilith is much easier to follow. The standard ephemeris on astro.com includes Mean Black Moon Lilith.
Black Moon Lilith shows where we speak out, stand up, and hold firm. Lilith was Adam's first wife, and she stood up for herself to Adam in the Garden of Eden, even when it meant getting thrown out! Lilith knew her power and worth, being equal to Adam.
Transit Black Moon Lilith can bring this out in all of us in general with the sign it's touring and aspects it makes to the other planets (and personally in the natal house is tours for you and aspects it makes to your natal chart).

Impact of Black Moon Lilith in Taurus:
Taurus is the earthiest of signs, and this helps to ground Black Moon Lilith. In Aries, Lilith is assertive and loud, but Black Moon Lilith in Taurus wants to take a step back, press pause, and make sure of its positions first before doing anything.
It may take longer to take a stand with Black Moon Lilith in Taurus, but once we do, we can stay with it no matter what. We can almost be stubborn about it! But we firmly believe in it. We may not be as loud as Lilith in Aries, but we can be more forceful.
In mythology, Lilith was made from the Earth, same as Adam. With Taurus being a super Earth sign, Black Moon Lilith in Taurus can bring out that earthy quality. We may be more sensual, and mystical energy can be of the earthy sort. It'd be a good time for rituals and spells that involve the Earth. This can also bring out more concern for the Earth, and we may focus more on trying to do better in our treatment of it.
