If you’re in the spiritual community, there is no doubt you’ve been hearing a lot about the Lion’s Gate and all the things it means and does. However, all the excitement around 08/08 is ever so slightly limiting.
Eight is a powerful number and symbol, and two of them together, is doubly so. Eight relates to infinity, giving and receiving, abundance, new beginnings, death, and rebirth. But here’s the thing about Lion’s Gate (when there is a Heliacal Rise of the star Sirius), it only rose around Egypt’s latitude on 08/08. In fact, it can be days, or even weeks later in other parts of the world, but it is seen as most important on 08/08 as it is said to activate the pyramids at Giza and then run its energy through the energetic leylines around the rest of the world - and the body’s energetic lines, the DNA. With all that being said, the portal is still very much open.
The Lion’s Gate portal is marked by the Sun in Leo, which then occurs at the same time as Sirus’ heliacal rise. Some say the portal opened around July 26th and stays open until August 12th (at the end of Perseid’s meteor shower). However, some can start to feel it as early as July 22nd, both Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day and the sun’s transition into Leo, running until the sun transitions into Virgo (August 22nd).
This time is also marked by a strong rise in the Solar Feminine. The Solar Feminine energy is the fire of the feminine. We have a tendency to talk about how the feminine is soft and fluid, watery and earthy, nurturing and calm, which she is, but there are other aspects of her that are fiery and fierce.
The Solar Feminine is here to set clear boundaries, to be heard, to say “no,” and express herself clearly. She is the ruler of a healthy solar plexus chakra and has a balance in her ego.
During this transition and transformation, remember to stay grounded in your body and with the earth.
Sending many blessings for this time, Lionness.
