he Lion’s Gates Portal
opens once a year during August 8 (commonly referred to as “8/8” by spiritualists who equate the number with abundance) and offers the chance to
encounter a positive force of energy – if you believe in such things.
In tarot, lions are connected with strength, and we’re currently in Leo season.
Every year, the portal allows us to ‘evolve,’ in the sense of becoming a more empowered version of ourselves
who is closer to living the life we genuinely desire.
The portal is produce when Sirius, the second-largest star in our galaxy, is closest to the earth and aligns with our sun, according to Bex Milford, the astrologer and cosmic
the coach behind Cosmic Cures.
‘As Sirius, in the constellation Leo, rises in the eastern horizon, it joins our sun,’ she explains.
‘Sirius is related with our greater objectives in astrology.
Our sun represents our life potential, identity, and ego, whereas Sirius represents our spiritual goals and exalted karmic journey in this incarnation.’
The Lion’s Gate Portal is creating while these energies align, allowing us to receive ‘light codes’ (messages) that can help us ‘reach a new awareness within ourselves.’
‘It just so happens that the moon is also getting involved this year, conjunct the sun to produce the new moon in Leo,’ she continues, ‘creating even more chance for magic.’
So, how much longer do you have to use these energies?
The Lion’s Gates Portal is open from July 26 to August 12, although it reaches its climax on August 8, also known as the Galactic New Year.
‘In numerology, the number 8 is significant because it is the symbol for infinity flipped sideways, and it is associat with luck and good fortune,’ Bex explains.
What are the best ways to make the most of the Lion’s Gate Portal?
It’s a terrific moment for manifestation and self-reflection with this open window of favorable energy.
‘Imagine it as a new year, with all of our new resolutions. This is a new year for our “spiritual consciousness,”‘ Bex explains
‘We want to break old behaviors and karmic cycles that are preventing us from spiritual growth.
‘Because it’s also a New Moon, now is an excellent time to establish intentions that will bring in a new state of being – such as ascending to the next “level” of our existence if
we listen to our intuition as well clues from the Universe.
‘Now is the time of becoming the person you want to be and to recognize where you’re still living as a “past” version of yourself.
‘Are your day-to-day decisions based on a belief you no longer hold or that no longer serves you?’
Today, you should be conscious of your interactions with others, as Bex warns that they may have meaning, and it may be beneficial to jot down anything that requires further contemplation.
