Lilith – The Dark Goddess

While working with this powerful, mysterious goddess for much of my life, I will be sharing the knowledge she has given me on her self. The following information was also proofed for me by other people who’ve been told the same.

Her origin: Some time after the god Lucifer arrived in a section of Hell with the fallen angels, he decided to create his twin flame since he could never find anyone with whom he could relate to. Lucifer split himself and that separated energy transformed into the being we call Lilith. These two deities soon afterwards married and became the parents of thousands of demons. Since they are twin flames, these gods are incredibly similar to one another, basically making Lilith Lucifer’s feminine counterpart. Their love for one another is so strong that they will take no one else. She is also known as a Morning Star and a Witch Mother.

During the rise of Mesopotamia, Lilith became known to the Sumerians under the name Inanna. Most people believe that Lilith was Lilitu, but she claims that her name Lilith was simply derived from Lilitu and they are not the same. In the Book of Revelations, Lilith can be found under the name Babalon (or Babylon the Great) where she is called the Mother of Abominations and the Great Whore due to her sensual nature.

Her rulerships: Lilith is mostly the goddess of war, love, power, sex, revenge, beauty, death, outcasts, illness, famine, witchcraft, and combat. As paradoxical as she is, she cannot be fully comprehended, her dark and fiery energy is constantly shifting.

Personality-wise, Lilith can be quite dominating and enigmatic. She is a withdrawn goddess who values compassion, courage, indulgence, and bluntness. Like her husband, she favours “tough love” since she will directly tell you what you’re doing wrong, how to fix it, and won’t coddle you about it. As a highly complex deity, Lilith can at one point be calm, motherly, and deeply wise, and the next she can be sadistic, eerie, domineering, and incredibly wrathful if pissed off. She is a prideful goddess who goes after all that she desires, yet does not ask for worship since she wishes to empower others. However, she can be surprisingly gentle towards those she has a fondness of. Lilith has often been said to be a “killer of children” but this was part of her demonization since she deeply loves children and passionately defends them.

As a goddess who is deeply intertwined with the darker aspects of nature, her energy can be found within things such as the darkest hours of night, the rage of fire, overwhelming passion, the rush of battle, sexual desire, the untouched wild, the rot in the earth, corpses being eaten away by insects, viral outbreaks, feelings of primal terror, ravaging hunger, and the sensation of witnessing overwhelming beauty, the feeling of ecstasy.

Some offerings she enjoys:

red roses, lilies, fruits (especially pomegranates and apples), chocolate, red wine, rum, ale, coffee, black tea, deep scents, strong tobacco, goat milk, honey, blood, menstrual blood, chili peppers, aphrodisiacs, orgasms, sex toys, daggers, heavy perfume, chicken feet, cream and sugar, coffin nails, goat horns, lingerie, dog teeth, crocodile teeth, jewelry, belladonna, thorns, snakeskin, graveyard dirt (properly obtained), Ouija board planchettes, vulva imagery, dark crystals such as obsidian or garnet, masquerade masques, desserts, Middle Eastern food, sand, vulture or crow skulls/feathers, poetry, prose, artwork, and imagery of snakes, lions, and dragons.
