I’m begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene
· Close to the Descendant (or the Ascendant) - Learns new skills very easily (sports, languages, playing musical instruments, typing), but unless the natal Lilith is in strong aspect to Saturn, this person won't submit to a lengthy and demanding training. Someone with less talent who has to work harder for results may end up surpassing the native with a tightly angular Lilith. (See below.)
As an astrologer who is single, I get a little nervous when I see Lilith in the 7th of someone I am just getting to know – my question is whether the person has worked through the karma associated with this Lilith. My decision to date or do business with a 7th House Lilith native is always going to be more fraught with “issues” - these are people who take time to assess, because behavior in action is key to understanding character in these folks.
Lilith on the Descendant (or Ascendant)
One thing I have noticed with a tight Lilith conjunction to the angles is that the native picks up new things very rapidly but may not develop the discipline to REALLY STUDY precisely because learning happens so naturally and easily for the native.
I've seen this occur for natives who have Mean Lilith or True Lilith tightly conjunct either angle. One person I know helped build her own home, breeds thoroughbreds, grows a spectacular garden, and teaches beginners to quilt, but her spelling is atrocious (she simply didn't want to put in the effort to learn), although she reports that reading came easily at an early age, and she does not have an obvious learning disability.
In the book, Story of the Lost Child, Elena Ferrante writes about this phenomenon. Her protagonist, Lena, reflect on her lover Nino's attraction to her best friend Lila (Lilith):
- Lila possessed intelligence and didn’t put it use but, rather, wasted it, like a great lady for whom all the riches of the world are merely a sign of vulgarity. That was what must have beguiled Nino: the gratuitousness of Lila’s intelligence. She stood out among so many because she, naturally, did not submit to any training, to any use, to any purpose.
As an aside, I can’t help but notice Nicole’s naturally red hair, an occasional association with Mary Magdalene, who may retain a link to the ancient Lilith. Her hair is frequently dyed blonde, but she has Scotch-Irish ancestry, and does appear to be a faint redhead. Kidman has also had a history of infertility. Only her first child with Urban was conceived and delivered in the traditional manner.
