Perhaps one of the most interesting characters involved in creation myths, Lilith is a religious figure and a female demon who became a symbol of femininity, courage, strength, rebellion, women’s equality with and independence from men.
Lilith is known as the first feminist in the world and there is a good reason for that. According to the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible, specifically in Genesis 2:22, it is stated that God created Eve from the rib of Adam.
In an earlier part of the Book, Genesis 1:27, however, it is said that God created Lilith from the same clay that Adam was created (for he said in Genesis 2:18 “it is not good for man to be alone”).
Seeing how they were created the same way and were equals, Lilith refused to submit to Adam. They could not get along and she left Adam after which Adam complained to the Almighty according to some beliefs.
From Dead Sea Scrolls of 40-10 BC to Zohar documents of 1280, sources of Jewish folklore and mythology mentioned Lilith many times as a demon along with all the other texts of Mesopotamian mythology.
That said, who and what Lilith is a topic for another very long article that we will be focusing on later. Now, let us get back to Lilith sigil for invoking her and the most prominent Lilith symbol.

In addition to her sigils, the goddess/demon is also represented by a symbol. Below is the most significant Lilith symbol commonly used in astrology where she is also known as “Black Moon Lilith”. Kindly read on to find out the meaning of the name.
In astrology, Lilith’s symbol is a crescent moon on top of a cross with arms of equal length (also known as a Greek cross) representing mind and matter.
But what is Black Moon Lilith?
The dark moon, also known as Black Moon Lilith, means the location on a birth chart when the moon is the farthest from our planet, in other words, the phase when it is the most hidden from our sight.
Black Moon Lilith represents a person’s primitive impulses and the darkest side of their being which might include repressed sexuality.
This norm-defying, rebellious part of you is also where you are most sensual, emotional, and vulnerable hence the reason why you are not willing to expose it all that easily.
Lilith’s Mark Palmistry Meaning: What Does It Mean If You Have an “X”, the Mark of Lilith On Your Palm?
Let us first give you some explanations first to avoid confusion.
Palmistry is the practice of reading palms to foretell a person’s future or interpret their character. Still practiced by some people today, it was kind of a popular practice in ancient times and even kings and queens asked for palm readings to “learn” about their fates. Now, what is Lilith’s mark?
Having Lilith’s mark means having the letter X between the two horizontal and curvy lines bending towards the center of your palm.
Most people will have all these lines forming what looks like the letter M here while approximately 3% of all people were found to have the X, also known as the mark of Lilith.
But what does it mean to have Lilith’s mark on your palm?
It is believed that having Lilith’s mark on your palm means you are bound for great success and will have a destiny bigger than most people. In that sense, it is a sign of potential to be great thinkers and/or leaders. In fact, some believe Abraham Lincoln and Alexander the Great had the mark of Lilith.
People with the mark are successful, intuitive, smart, and kind.
Lilith Tattoo Meaning and Design Ideas
Lilith tattoos are a perfect way to represent your rebellious side, your independence from anyone and any establishment or traditional order of things as well as your femininity.
Lilith sigils will look really cool on a tattoo while the astrological sign of Black Moon Lilith comprising a crescent moon and a cross will probably look cuter.
If you are a follower of the Wiccan faith, interested in the practice of magic, or merely a pagan, a Black Moon Lilith sign along with a triple moon goddess symbol would look really nice as a “girl power” tattoo.
