Quick question re Lilith – have been searching your site (and the internet at large) but can’t find an answer to this: I know a man tends to have an affair with his Lilith (presumably the sun sign of the mistress?) but what if a couple both have the same Lilith? Mine is Leo 8th house 23 degrees, his is Leo 7th 14 degrees.
Does that mean we are both going to cheat with the same person?
Rest of the chart is ridiculously promising. So hoping not.
The internet just doesn’t seem to offer up help on this subject.
Interesting question. I am not sure that Lilith represents the “mistress” archetype as such. Although in terms of the hokey old Madonna-Whore complex, she is definitely at the “whore” end of the spectrum. But hasn’t that split been the cause of all manner of cruelty, crap, disenfranchisement in society and dud roots*?
Lilith as archetype is the rebel, the first wife of Adam who stalked out of the Garden of Eden and came back as the Snake. She is not exactly top contender for someone who is going to play any role in a bourgeois marriage; wifie or the chick hanging around on the side to keep the whole charade going.
“Lilith embodies the presence of an archaic form of feminine strength that ignores any patriarchal discourse of power and dominance and allies itself with those forces that affirm life itself.”
There is a weird argument that Juno indicates “the mistress” and still others that, if you like females, your Moon is what you want for intimate emotional connection, Venus is what you fancy and so on. I think if you both have Lilith in the same sign and so close together, you’d support a certain rebel outsider vibe in another. This person would particularly be able to give space to your wilder dimensions.
“Cheat” with one another. Also, if you really want to go on a chart comparison (synastry) bender with this person, look for the super-strong, close-orb links. Sun-Moon intra-aspects, Mars-Venus, Mercury for communication…There are a whole heap of lessons/hacks re this in the Astro Hacks course, if you are interested.
To be shallow about this, if you DO both cheat with the same epic Lilith in Leo type person, she will probably have great hair, excellent taste in music/film and block you both with one stab of her gold dust manicured nails after the deed.
What does everyone else think?
* Root is crass Australian slang for sex. So a dud root means a poor copulation experience.
