Lilith gives you the power you need to be YOU. Lilith was the first wife of Adam in the Garden of Eden. Adam, being the “man”, tried to make Lilith be sexually submissive, but she wasn’t having that. Some say she left, some say she was exiled, some say she went stark-raving mad. Scary Lilith’s reputation seems to be undeserved. For women, Lilith can show you how you can be your true independent self and find that power within you as a woman. For both men and women, she’s your ability to think for yourself and say it. Your inner Lilith - the person who has their own mind and own power independent of anyone else - can be a source of hidden power that help you become a stronger version of YOU.
In practice, I also find people with strong Lilith in their charts tend to: a, be super feminists (girl power!), b, be super mystics (Lilith is a little witchy), and c, there's usually a difficult relationship with the mother (perhaps linking to the "demon" and stealing babies part of the mythology).
Black Moon Lilith (BML) is the point in the Moon’s orbit that is farthest from Earth (the apogee). There are two versions of BML, Mean and True or Oscillating. The movement of BML is not too stable, so the Mean position averages out her movement, while the True or Oscillating position gives the actual position.
Technically, in astrology, there are three different Liliths: Black Moon Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith (also called Waldemath Moon), and asteroid Lilith (the only physical body of Lilith). Dark Moon Lilith tends to be a little darker while asteroid Lilith to be more symbolic of the story of Lilith.
To find the locations of your Liliths on astro.com, in Extended Chart Selection, click on Additional Objects, then click on Lilith in the menu (gives the Mean BML position), and in the Manual entry box, type in h13 (Oscillating BML), h58 (Waldemath), and 1181 (asteroid Lilith), then generate your chart.
