Shadow Work 101: Exploring the Intense Transit of Black Moon Lilith and Pluto

Astrology is a never-ending journey of exploration, and as an astrologer and human design guide, it is important to keep learning and evolving. One of the most intriguing and complex aspects of astrology is the interaction between Black Moon Lilith and Pluto. These two celestial bodies have a reputation for being the darkest and most intense energies in the zodiac, and when they come together, the results can be both challenging and transformative.

Black Moon Lilith is a point in space that represents the dark and primal feminine energy that has been suppressed by society. It is often associated with anger, rebellion, and the shadow side of our personalities. When Black Moon Lilith is prominently placed in a birth chart, it can indicate a person who is highly attuned to their own darkness and is unafraid to explore it.

Pluto, on the other hand, is the planet of death, transformation, and rebirth. It is associated with the deep, intense, and sometimes painful process of letting go of what no longer serves us in order to make room for new growth and evolution. Pluto's transits can be highly challenging, but they also offer the potential for profound growth and transformation.

When Black Moon Lilith and Pluto come together in a transit, the results can be explosive. This is a time when the suppressed anger, rebellion, and darkness represented by Black Moon Lilith are brought to the surface and are forced to confront the transformative power of Pluto. This can be a highly challenging and intense time, but it can also be an opportunity for profound growth and evolution.

As an astrologer with Black Moon Lilith at 0 degrees (Aquarius) in my birth chart, and transit Pluto at 29 degrees Capricorn inching closer at the time of this writing, I am fascinated by the upcoming transit and its potential impact. This potent transit holds significant meaning for me, as the 0-degree placement of Black Moon Lilith indicates that I am highly sensitive and attuned to the very beginning of things. Conversely, the 29-degree placement of Pluto represents the end of a cycle and the willingness to let go of what no longer serves me.

This particular transit brings a unique opportunity for me to confront the suppressed anger, rebellion, and darkness that I may or may not know I have kept hidden for years. While this can be a daunting and challenging time, I recognize the potential for profound growth and evolution, which is why I am delving deeper into this transit and sharing my insights with my community.

By understanding the intricate interplay between Black Moon Lilith and Pluto, I hope to provide my clients and astro friends with a better understanding of this transformative energy and help them navigate this intense period of their lives. As an astrologer, it is my responsibility to provide valuable insights and guidance to those seeking to explore their birth chart and harness the potential of astrological transits.

During any Pluto transit, you may find yourself confronting deep-seated anger, rebellion, and darkness that you have suppressed for years. This may be a challenging and intense time, but it is also an opportunity to release these emotions and transform them into something more positive and empowering.

Tomorrow, I've got my Lilith sextile Pluto transit happening in my 7th house. Lilith is in Gemini and Pluto is in Scorpio in my natal birth chart. Since the 7th house is all about relationships, could this mean some changes are coming for me in that area of life? I have never been in a long term relationship before but I have feelings for someone. Unfortunately, she's seeing someone else right now.

My Pluto 1 degree in Aquarius is very close to transiting my black moon Lilith at 2 degrees in the first house.

Just recently my relationship ended due to power dynamics and jealousy issues as he felt I was too sensual with others. It was a very transformative relationship where he was integrated in his shadows and he was teaching me to take off my mask of “love and light”. I also have been going through a deep process of seeing my suppressed fears and reprogramming my conscious mind to feel safe.

Additional themes: empowered leadership, inner rebel not wanting to conform, darker thoughts that I never had before, wanting to be in a healthy monogamous relationship where I have…

What happens if I have a Scorpio Lilith conjunct junct my Libra Pluto in my 7th House? Those are my only 7th house placements 😬

Replying to

That's a potent combination in your 7th house! You're likely to experience intense and transformative relationships and a deep need for empowerment with your closest partnerships. You may attract or be attracted to powerful, even challenging, dynamics that push you to confront deeper truths about yourself and others.

In relationships, you might find themes of control, obsession, or power plays, meaning you need to address issues around trust, and vulnerability. The positive is using these experiences to foster deeper, more authentic connections.

The 7th house not only represents partnerships but also open enemies, so it's important to be aware and willing to evolve. Dive deep and confront your shadows, to make stronger, more authentic connections. xo
