Just about everyone has heard of Lilith who, according to Hebrew tradition, was Adam's first wife who refused to submit to him and was subsequently run off to cause all sorts of havoc.  She is frequently the posterchild of feminists who likewise refuse to cowtow to their male counterparts, but her astrological meaning is much more complex than that of a rebellious, indomitable, bra-burning woman.

Lilith tends to be a hot topic for various reasons, first and foremost probably because she relates to sex.  Whether or not my assumption is true is anyone's guess, but I do know she receives a lot more attention than the other female mythological characters such as the asteroid goddesses Juno, Vesta, Ceres and Pallas Athene based on the number of hits Lilith gets on my site compared to the others. 

If you want to see some of the information contained in this ebook you can find it hereHowever, unlike Asteroid Archetypes: A Primer, which is contained entirely on this website,  this book offers various bonus features in addition to what's included here alone, specifically house by house descriptions of the different Lilith entities as well as a close look at the charts of three women who were under strong, malevolent Lilith influences that placed them in the news, i.e., Lisa Nowak, Andrea Yates and Casey Anthony.  Thus, if you're an astrologer who wants more detail as well as how these different influences play out you'll probably want to buy the book.

Lilith, in spite of her status as a heroine to some, is not a nice person.  Her influence tends to be negative.  She is often associated with such things as difficult birth experiences as well as a woman suddenly displaying erratic and uncharacteristic nasty or self-destructive behavior.  If your mother had difficulties at your birth, you are more likely to have these aspects in your birthchart and would do well to be familiar with them so that you can monitor your own behavior and thus keep yourself out of trouble.  I do offer Lilith readings if you think that could apply to you.  If you're aware you have Lilith-like inclinations you may be able to control the impulses using pure logic or perhaps have a trusted friend lock you up until the triggering transits pass.

 As noted on the Lilith page, some folks have been unhappy with the negative spin I give to Lilith. While I am the first to state that any astrological entity has a positive and negative manifestation, when afflicted Lilith can produce some rather nasty results. I would like to point out that Ivy Goldstein-Jacobson, a well-known astrologer from years past, is of the opinion:

Lilith is always SINISTER and MALEVOLENT in her intent and ultimate effect so that the matters and people represented by the house she is in will not be granted full measure of the good that otherwise could develop in the native's life in that department. She is DENYING, FRUSTRATING and CATASTROPHIC, bringing CHAOS to the affairs ruled by that house.*

Therefore, I'm in good company with my opinions. Nonetheless it is always the choice of the native how to act out the energy, though from what I've seen of afflicted Lilith transits it can be extremely difficult to overcome. I don't have any stories of those who have resisted and overcome; they don't make the news. Therefore I know only of those who have fallen under Lilith's spell and fit Goldstein-Jacobson's description to the proverbial "T."]

Description on Amazon.com

If you are looking for a fair and balanced treatise on the astrological entity, Lilith, this is NOT it. As the title implies, this is the dark side of Lilith and serves as a warning of what her worst-case influence can be, i.e. “stainless steel estrogen with a razor’s edge.” Liliths addressed include Dark Moon Lilith (True and Mean); Jacobson Lilith (a.k.a. Black Moon Lilith) and Asteroid Lilith (Asteroid 1181); stellar Lilith, the fixed star, Algol is mentioned but not in the same depth. This short but not-so-sweet book written in the author’s characteristic style of dry wit and acerbic humor includes a brief description of the Lilith myth and archetype, the astrological implications of each by house placement, and examples of Lilith’s power in action as shown through chart delineations of three women in the news who succumbed to these influences, i.e. Lisa Nowak, Andrea Yates and Casey Anthony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lilith revealed March 29, 2014

By Donna McGarry

This book was gifted to me for an honest review. And I'm glad it was. I have always been confused by all the different Liliths referred to in astrological discourses. Marcha Fox not only clearly explains the differences between the Liliths, she does so in an engaging, entertaining manner. Ms. Fox details the mythological backgrounds, the astrological implications, as well as how the different Liliths' placements would manifest in the chart. She describes how Lilith can indicate where one might have issues of subservience, birth trauma or crazed 'psycho bitches from hell' co-workers or girlfriends. Finally, she gives in-depth chart analysis of some notoriously disturbed women and how Lilith played out in their charts. An engrossing, fascinating foray into the dark energy of Lilith!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting September 26, 2013

By Amazon Customer

I started reading this right before bed to relax before going to sleep. The next thing I knew I was half way into the book. Time is valuable, so I keep a close eye on it. To me, a book that keeps your interest without realizing how much time has past is a book worth reading.

NOTE: The book has gathered some negative reviews from those who obviously didn't read the description, didn't realize it was focused on the astrological influences, and simply didn't understand that this is NOT intended to be a comprehensive treatise on Lilith generally. Thus, the complaint about it "lacking female empowerment" is rather amusing, especially to the author who worked in a man's job in a man's world at NASA for over two decades. The pagan who had problems with it simply proved my point about Lilith's nature by the nasty, acerbic review she left, which I found laughable.
