Story Goddess: Lilith

Mine is the dark moon’s knowing september-2016-063
I will not lie down
I fly.
I sing with owl’s ferocious wing
I know
The passion of blood
the cost
of freedom
the texture
and taste
of life’s wildness.

Our Lilith Story Goddess represents the Babylonian goddess of the night, the dark moon, and the first wife of Adam who refused to submit to him. She is cast in resin and colored with a uniquely blended by us red-black mica pigment. This pigment is not commercially available anywhere and is mixed by hand in small batches. Her silver-tone belt carries a silver-tone owl charm, since Lilith is commonly associated with the owl and is sometimes said to transform into an owl. Lilith has a complicated history and a negative reputation in mainstream religion, but within Goddess Feminism, many women have discovered a different and empowering relationship with her. While some remnants of legend that remain of her are dark and frightening and she was vilified by Christianity into a demon, Lilith may also be experienced as a “banner for female power, authenticity, and the act of reclaiming parts of our Selves that are vital for survival” (Kimberly Moore). The earliest Lilith was a Sumerian snake or bird goddess, later incorporated into Babylonian and Hebrew stories. This self-sovereign goddess who does shy away from feeling or expressing her rage has become a powerful symbol of transformation and liberation.

Lilith is associated with the dark moon phase:

The Black New Moon is connected to many Goddesses, and it is particularly linked to the hypnotic and magnificent Goddess Lilith. Lilith is associated with sexual energy, creativity, rebellion, and feminine power. She is a symbol of divine matriarchal energy that refuses to be dominated or controlled.
