The Lions Gate Portal

A powerful time to manifest on 8th August every year

Every year there is a cosmic alignment on 8th August. The lion’s gate portal opens when our earthly sun, our spiritual sun Sirius, and the Earth all line up. This creates a powerful portal of energy, which is potent for manifesting.

The portal opens on 28th July and peaks on 8th August.

Sirius is the 2nd brightest star visible in our skies (the sun is the brightest), and at this time of year can be seen just before sunrise. You will find it below Orion’s Belt.

During the Lion’s Gate portal, Sirius separates sufficiently from the sun to come into view. 

Since Sirius is the brightest star in our night sky, and twice the mass of the sun, mystics believe it infuses the earth with extra energy.

Healers, mystics and astrologers believe the energy coming from Sirius contains special elevating and activating energy that can help us to manifest, call in abundance and make our dreams come true.

In numerology eight bears a lot of significance as well, and the double energy of eight on August 8 (8/8) is auspicious.

Eight is known as the powerhouse number, and it acts as a bridge between the material and spiritual realms. It’s also the number of power and wealth.

Eight is connected with achievement, goals, and the intersection of the spiritual and physical dimensions, signified by the interlocking circles of “8,” or the infinity symbol.

How to make the most of this powerful energy portal

This is a day to access your true soul self and let the light of your soul awaken and shine.

During this portal you will be able to access guidance from your soul and your higher wisdom.

1. Visualise Golden Light

Visualise yourself surrounded by golden light. Breathe it in and imagine it filling every cell in your body. You might like to imagine yourself glowing with this golden energy.

Know that this energy has an abundant magnetism to it, so that what you think or feel you will attract towards you because you are a powerful creator.

2. Set Clear Intentions

Take the time to focus on what you want to create, attract or bring into your life.

What are your wildest hopes and dreams? Think BIG and be BRAVE like a Lion!

Eight represents the number of infinity, so focus on the bigger picture.

3. Call upon Sirius

Ask Sirius to illuminate your Soul and remind you who you are, and what you came here to earth to do.

4. Receive the wisdom

Sitting still and quietly, open yourself up to receive wisdom and guidance directly from your soul. 

5. Remember you are a Soul

Today, act as if you are a Soul having a Human experience. How would your life be different if you lived that way every day?

6. Stay connected

Feel the light within you as you go about your day so you can shine your light out into the world.

7. Gather with others

This portal is a potent spiritual time, and tapping into your own spiritual world will amplify this energy. Now’s the time to do your favourite spiritual activities, especially in a group, which will magnify positive energy and intentions.

Getting together for ceremonies, meditations, chanting, yoga, dance, art, time in nature, etc., will amplify the energy of the Lion’s Gate,

8. Take Action

View the Lion’s Gate (and Leo Season, in general) as a time to build up your stores of love, joy, and gratitude. It is a time to think big, and write out an action plan to help you bring your dreams to life.

There’s never a bad time to lean into love, work on whatever you want to manifest, and practice gratitude, but in the case of the Lion’s Gate portal on August 8, you could find your efforts will be amplified more than you can imagine!
