“To sensual vices she was so abandoned,
That lustful she made licit in her law,
To remove the blame to which she had been led.“
Dante Alighieri “Inferno”
Everything is dominated by the impulse, passions and the electric energy that is born from every new action, desire, and through itself. Here everything is “ now or never”, all is submitted to time that is sincerely despised. A person has no time to question, for the body and mind are already united with passions, that are born as such, and before the consiousness can catch this thread and make that fiery, furious being concious, everything has already happened. In the visual sense, this person exudes sensuality and an agressive but seductive erotica. Often persons with Lilith in Aries want to look fatal, so their body becomes their main tool in achieving this goal which they attain by regular excercise in gyms and strict diets. Their motto is “ if I can do it – so can you!”, so they rarely show understanding for the weaknesses of others. They can be very audacious in their dress, vulgar in their behaviour and speech, thus emphasizing their superiority. The worst situation is when a person with Lilith in Aries is paralyzed, whether because of prejudice, environment, unawareness or suffered anxieties. Then he becomes blocked for any kind of action, and since he can attain the deepest understandings only through action and concrete experiences, hes regularly remains primitive. They live in fear of themselves, in fear of pain, because they do not stand it and run away from every situation where they can be faced with pain (from a dentist to emotional ties). All people with Lilith in Aries have a pronounced need to retaliate when hurt. They do not forgive themselves emotional humilitation, so after a tragic emotional experience women with Lilith thus positioned often become ruthless and unattainable for men, strict toward other women, blaming the whole female gender because of their unlucky love, while men enter into relationships without emotions, usually with frail and vulnerable, much younger, inexperienced partners that will surely not dispute their masculinity and power! This is a position that gives overt jealousy, tendency to fatal connections, and no immunity to casual flings. Every childbirth carries a danger, the Caesarian and much bleeding.
However, when a person is aware and wants to provoke her own Lilith-energy, then she gives herself up to life as an adventure, always readily walking one step ahead of others. Regularly in life comes across people similar to her with which she will compete and measure up to. It happens that within a family there are two persons with Lilith in Aries, and regardless of other astrological characteristics, in time they start to resemble each other very much. They are drawn to new territories, new knowledge. They dislike rules and do not respect them. They desire power, are conquerors and nothing is hard for them. Every challenge is a motivation to them. In their youth they are boastful and talkative, which is why they experience a lot of problems, later in life they strive to be strict and disciplined parents. Their main principle is maintaining their personality, integrity, their “I”. Sometimes they can be so pushy that they want others to behave according to their wishes, according to the motto “Be like me!”. They don’t stand compromise, they are vigourous champions of freedom, they have a specific strong urge to represent themselves always and everywhere as someone completely liberated of other people’s influence, which frequently leads them into scandalous situations because of their whimsical behaviour. They will rather follow their inner impulse, which they regard as a “given”, then to strategically use ratio. They have a young spirit even in their later years. In order to establish harmony and equilibrium they need retreat, a complete dedication and development of trust in their relatioships with other people, so that these people could get rid of their fear of emotions and their own weakness and vulnerability!
