Lilith do you use in astrology? There are more than one, right?
The astrological tradition of Lilith/Dark Moon originates primarily
in France and has spread over large parts of Europe in the last
25 years from there.

be some information around.

book on Fixed Stars, e.g. by Bernadette Brady, who has done some
inspired writing on the subject ("Brady's Book of Fixed Stars").
