I have Lilith on this degree, which has many meanings (ironically) but the one that resonates for me is that it is something we need to give up - a belief that makes us suffer.
I had a lot of difficulty trying to understand this symbol - could it be that the bomb explodes but doesn't destroy anything, or even backfires on the lobber? Could it be that the bomb is unexploded? Since the word explosion is in the symbol, I decided that for me, the non-destructive explosion is the idea that resonates.
Therefore I need to give up the idea that any bombs I drop will be harmless. That any flares I throw out won't need any damage control. Lilith tells me to be very careful about what I say and do, because they have consequences and affect people. I can understand this symbol being in Aries, because Aries tends to get away with Aries self-orientation. Aries can throw bombs and get away with it, it's no big deal, nobody else gets hurt. Unless you have Lilith on this!

I also see this symbol playing out in my dealings with my children. I yell at them a hundred times to be quiet or go to bed or whatever and does it make any difference? Nope! They will still be loud and not sleep, except after a hundred times of yelling, my relationship with them gets hurt (and yes, they are hurt from being yelled at). So this symbol has a real can't beat 'em, join 'em feel to it.

Does any part of the symbol resonate with you?

Generational perfection:
If it's not spoken
Then it didn’t happen -
Dangling -
A hydrogen bomb.
Seeking a target
When there is none to find.
Who am I?
This vision of someone else
This frustration of not living life
This frustration of confusion
The boredom of himself
I understand this moment
But it is not me this time
He has his own demons to fight.

Unsuccessful bomb explosion!
by: Charlotte

Henry Erwin, recipient of many medals during WWII because a smoke phosphorus bomb caught on the edge of the bomb exit, exploding back into his face, and burned him horribly. Because it was phosphorus it would not go out, yet he grabbed the bomb that was still burning, and crawled to the bomb exit to throw it out, saving the rest of the crew. They all thought Henry would die--he was still burning. He was brought to the hospital and went through many surgeries. He regained his most of his eyesight and use of one arm, becoming a counselor for burn victims. He lived to about 80, dying in 2002. So that bomb was "unsuccessful" to say the least. Henry also had Venus in Aries at 24 degrees. Sun, moon, and mercury in Taurus -- great endurance and determination.
