Every year from July 26 - August 12 we experience an astrological event called the Lion's Gate Portal. This is a time when alignment forms between Earth and the star Sirius (the brightest start in the sky). The actual alignment occurs on August 8th but the energies of this are felt for 2 weeks. This alignment creates a surge of cosmic energy between the spiritual and physical world and a time of creation and abundance. It is basically a two week period of powerful new moon manifestation energy. This event occurs during Leo season (hence the name) which brings in energies that give us the courage to lead and live from our heart and take bigger leaps of faith for ourselves.
Sirius is the brightest star visible from Earth and represents abundance and fertility. It challenges us to transform the mundane into the sacred and reminds us to have faith and dream bigger. Combined with creative and powerful Leo energy, we are in a position to find ways to make our dreams reality and follow our heart's desire with confidence.
This is considered a very cosmic alignment and brings a great deal of spiritual energy into the physical world. This provides us with a higher knowledge and a closer connection to our divine guidance. It helps us to see things more clearly and heightens and strengthens our intuition. This energy actually activates your energy field and increases your vibrational frequency helping you to see the bigger picture of things. This is going to help you see your path forward in a brighter way as well as giving you the ability to clearly see the things that have been blocking abundance in your life.
This alignment brings in an activation (or a jolt of energy) to your heart and third eye chakra. This helps give you the confidence to follow your heart and have trust in the process. The downside to this energy is that in activating these chakras, blockages in these areas will be felt more intensely. This is to show you what you need to work on healing and releasing during this time. Pay attention to what is causing you sadness, grief, fear, and self doubt during this time. Focus on what can be done to bring in healing to these areas. Because of the higher connection and energy of this time, you will be able to have a better understanding of what can be and needs to be done to bring healing and clear away blockages.
Overall this is encouraging us to follow our passion and our hearts desire. It's pushing us to move more towards a life of emotional fulfillment and to accept that we are here to live in the energy of abundance. This is time to work on letting go of limiting beliefs in ourselves and in what is available to us. It is encouraging us to open ourselves up to receiving love, abundance and happiness. We tend to have an easier time giving away our love and energy and abundance, but a difficult time when it comes to receiving the same and that is a result of limiting beliefs that we hold for ourselves. What has caused you to feel as if what you want is not easily available to you? Chances are that comes from what others have told you, a result of how others have treated you, and negative experiences you have had in the past. It's time to live a life that is free of the perceptions of others and this means learning to trust in yourself and follow your own path.
This is a time to focus on what you want to manifest for yourself and what you would like more of in your life. Remember your thoughts create your reality. Because of this intensified energy, your thoughts are creating at a much faster rate right now, so be mindful of what you are focused on. This is a great time to begin focusing on future goals, new beginnings and what you would like more of in your life. Make a plan, write your intentions and follow your inner guidance over the next two weeks. Pay close attention to your dreams and hunches and messages coming to you at this time as this is giving you the guidance forward that you need.
This is time to look towards what fuels your passion and find your inner power to chase your dreams. Enjoy the burst of energy! Sending you all much love!
