Today, August 8, marks the 8/8 Lions Gate Portal. The power of this portal comes from the simultaneous alignment of stars, signs, numbers, & planets - The positioning of the Sun in Leo, Sirius the brightest star in the sky, the constellation Orion's Belt, & Earth. The rising star of Sirius is what activates this portal! The opening of this cosmic gate will deliver high-frequency energy into our being, allowing us to rebirth our spirit & strengthen our connection to the spirit of Mother Earth.
Through history, astrologers believed the rising of Sirius was the rebirth of Spirit. This rebirth transpires right in the heart of Leo season, the sign ruled by the Lion - Giving it the name of Lions Gate. The Lion is the true symbol of courage, power, strength, inner wisdom, leadership, & self realization. It is said that when the Lion begins to appear in your life, it is calling you to trust in yourself, your direction, & your capabilities … To take that leap of faith!
In this season, the bold, confident energy of Leo encourages us to shine & take action towards our goals. To move forward without fear, stand with power & trust, & have faith in our hearts. It is important to remember that the Universe supports us, & the Divine is behind us every step of the way.
The 8/8 Portal is the opportune time to manifest your highest desires, intentions, & true self. The energy that will emit from the opening of this portal will reawaken the heart, the mind, & the soul, allowing you to reconnect with your Inner Spirit. This connection will grant you the power to attune to your intuition & realign with your values & your truth. With an open heart & an open mind, you will find clarity on your path of personal growth, self discovery, & spirituality.

Ritual to Embrace the Energy of Today:
Sit down with a pen & paper.
Light a candle, specifically one that aligns with your intentions (Green for prosperity or luck, Red for strength & protection, White for purification & truth, etc.)
Begin writing down a list of things you want to manifest.
Add to this list, the intimidating things you would be able to do if you had that "extra courage” or fearlessness.
When you are done writing, take 8 deep breaths, being mindful & present of the energy in the air.
Now read your list aloud or in your head, reading them in present tense as if they are happening now (Ex. Instead of “I wish to land a high paying job I enjoy”, say it as “I am receiving abundant wealth at my dream job”.)
As you read each statement, reflect on why you wish to manifest this, & what you would do for yourself & others once it becomes a reality. Think about the emotions you would feel once it happens, & visualize what it would look like.
Once you are done, at the bottom of your paper write, “I have everything I need to manifest the life of my dreams!”
Fold your paper towards you 4 times, turn it 90 degrees & fold another 4 times towards you (Folding it in your direction pulls the energy towards you so make sure you don't fold it in the opposite direction.)
Now that you have your folded paper (it should somewhat be in the shape of a square), write an 8 or an infinity symbol on both sides.
With the paper in your hands, place your hands over your chest, & now say out loud “I have everything I need to manifest the life of my dreams!”
Place this paper on your altar, by your bedside, in your purse, or anywhere that is considered a sacred space to you.
~ Blessings on this Sacred Day!
