Lilith and the Dark of the Moon
The Moon wanes towards its Full Light on February 10th and the opportunity is ripe to reach out to the potency of this energy and claim the light of your own fullness. As the Goddess completes her lunar transformation she blankets her radiance in a knowledge that is deep in its interior reach within the very core of who we believe ourselves to be.
Although, we often speak of the discomfort of standing naked and vulnerable in the brilliance of light’s examination what is overlooked is the ability to hide within that light and make excuse for why we are not self-aware. We seek the illusion of solace in the dark; yet are afraid of what we may find there that stirs the wild and primal self into action. And, emerge from this space still unaware and afraid of the power and truth of who we are. The key is seeing the illusion of both and calling forth the truth within each to co-create as sisters supporting our spiritual and personal growth.
The Black Moon Lilith is another less commonly used aspect of the Moon and the energy of Lilith as creatrix and keeper of the sexual energy that is potent and seeks its space of quickening. This is aspect of the Black Moon occurs as a point that is directly opposite the Full Moon. It is the polarized seed point of dark that counter balances and interacts with the fullness of the physical Moon’s light. You might say that this is the Moon behind the Moon. This is the space of harnessing the potency of new birth held in the shadow of the Lilith’s Moon and the Fullness of Light that Mother Moon reveals. This is a center point that holds the Earth as the center point between it and the physical Moon itself.
The waning towards the Dark Moon embodies our occult self that feeds the illusion of who we are and; if embraced in the fullness of our creation of the pervasive darkness of our truths, reveals what lay beneath the surface waiting to be used and transformed. This is the work of the Goddess as the Crone. She holds nothing back, invites you to look at the truth of your own reflection and then demands that you release what serves no purpose and what hinders your growth. She carries the wisdom that has grown through experience and she knows the secrets of the darkest of places and holds within the Light that illumines those who have courage to enter. And, this is an overt calling of Lilith as Queen of the Dark and holding the potential of change within.
The dark moon of Lilith’s mantle calls to you to arise and come to her in all your splendor and beauty as a being of Dark and Light…..
I am the pervasive darkness
That lay behind my sister
Of Light and fullness.
I am the Witch and weaver of
A deep magick that requires
Going into the depths of your
Darkened being and reclaiming
The power of your hidden light.
I stand strong in the knowledge
Of my power and fierce will.
I am untamed and I am wild
And free in all of my gifts that
I choose To give.
I am death and I am life
I am healing and I am truth
I am lust and I am pleasure
And I am all that you fear
Who will you seek as the moon wanes towards its Newness? How will you call to Lilith as the Moon rises Full in the sky..
