Lilith [Astro*Index]

A hypothetical dark moon of Earth, used by the astrologer Sepharial. There is no observational evidence for its existence, but there is an ephemeris. The cycle of Lilith is 126 years, with an average daily motion of 3 degrees, 2 minutes. The name comes from the myth of Adam's first wife, Lilith, found in certain occult and apocryphal writings. [The following contradicts the above] Jacobson made use of Lilith in horary astrology, a practice which Gilber Navarro follows today. Her key words seem struck from the same repository of badness Saturn satisfied for centuries and the outer planets, especially Pluto, have satisfied recently.

Lilith [DeVore]

A name sometimes given to asteroid No. 1181, a minor planet, of magnitude 14.1. It is too faint to be seen other than with the aid of a telescope. It is not a "dark moon," but a planet that shines by reflected light from the Sun — as does the Earth. Lilith is mentioned in the apocryphal writings, as the "other woman" in the original triangle that rendered the Garden of Eden no longer a paradise.
