The 8th day of the 8th month of the year represents a particularly significant date. While the Sun is in its home sign Leo, we experience a specific alignment between the Earth and the fixed star Sirius that activates what is known as the Lion’s Gate.
The activation of this Celestial Stargate has been influencing us since the end of July, and its energy will be available to us until the end of Leo season. Both our individual frequencies and the electromagnetic field of the whole planet are strongly affected by this alignment.
During these days, there is a strong possibility of sudden spiritual and kundalini awakenings, the spontaneous opening of blocked chakras, potent downloads from our Higher Self and Spirit Guides, visitation from Angels, Archangels, and higher dimensional beings. We could also experience visions of future or past lives, psychic abilities unlocking, unintentional astral travels, vivid and intense lucid dreaming.
Ancient civilizations have celebrated this cosmic event for thousands of years. The alignment between the Earth, Sirius, and the Sun has a powerful effect on our DNA and on the frequency of the entire Earth. The function of the Lion’s Gate Portal Activation is to prepare our physical, mental, emotional, and etheric bodies for a significant shift in consciousness.
Sirius: Our Spiritual Sun
Sirius is the most shining star in the sky: it is twenty to forty times brighter than our Sun. Also known as Alpha Canis Majoris or the Dog Star, it is a Fixed Star: this means it does not move. It is placed at 14 degrees Cancer: if you have planets on this degree, Sirius has a particular significance for you.
Each year, around this time, we experience the heliacal rising of Sirius: this means that it will be possible to see Sirius before sunrise, after it has been hidden from daylight for about 70 days.
Sirius is also called our “Spiritual Sun”: its influence is traditionally considered beneficial. Although it is not often taken into account in Modern Astrology, Sirius had a huge importance in Ancient Egyptian Astronomy and Astrology. All Egyptian temples were built according to their alignment with the stars and in fact, during the Lion’s Gate, the Orion Belt forms an exact alignment with Giza Pyramids.
Back around 3000 BC, the rising of Sirius marked the beginning of the Egyptian New Year: it coincided with the flooding of the Nile River, which fertilized the farmlands. For this reason, Sirius to them represented abundance, benevolence, and luck. It was associated with the Goddess Isis, a healer and a magician, who ruled over fertility, motherhood, and the process of death and rebirth.
The heliacal rising of Sirius happens during the “Dog Days” of Summer, the hottest ones, that take their name from the Dog Star. The exact astronomical event this year will be on August 15-16, depending on the latitude where we live, but we are going to feel the effects of Sirius’ alignment with the Earth and the Sun throughout the whole Leo Season.
8/8: Power and Transformation
The intensity of the frequency of number 8 is the reason why August 8th is considered the peak moment of the activation of the Lion’s Gate. We celebrate it on this date even though, astronomically, the exact day of the rising of Sirius slightly changes each year.
Number 8 in Numerology is extremely potent. It is a symbol of infinity, power, and transformation. It represents the ability to manifest one’s reality, as well as balance, harmony, and decision making. In Astrology, number 8 is associated with the sign of Scorpio, the planet Pluto, and the Eight House. All these archetypes correlate with profound metamorphosis, emotional depth, psychological death and rebirth, and sexuality.
In Tarot, the Eight Major Arcana is either Strength or Justice, depending on the deck. Strength inspires us to master our instincts, emotions, and desires, and to come into contact with our inner courage and power, overcoming any self-doubt and insecurity. Justice symbolizes the law of cause and effect, also known as karma. This card reminds us of the importance of acting from a place of integrity and being accountable for our choices.
Number 8 is a very karmic number associated with ambition, resilience, leadership, and success. Nonetheless, the benefits of its potent energy can be achieved only through the right and ethical use of one’s power, resources, and sexual energy.
Lion’s Gate: Massive Ascension and Energetic Activation
The current weeks are a highly charged and emotional time for starseeds, lightworkers, and empaths, who are extremely sensitive to energetic shifts. We are being beamed by high-frequency electromagnetic waves that we are not used to experiencing.
There is a lot of cosmic information coming in right now: there are ongoing exchanges between the physical and non-physical realms. Receiving messages from technologically advanced extraterrestrial civilizations, of which some people believe that Sirius is home to, is another possibility during this time.
For these reasons, the more sensitive among us have been experiencing headaches, fatigue, muscle tension, insomnia, nervousness, mood swings, dizziness, irritability, or have felt agitation without a clear cause.
Meditation is highly recommended during these days: ground yourself visualizing cords connecting you to the center of the Earth, find stillness and silence to allow downloads and insights to come in.
We are in a time of heightened awareness and massive ascension. Be prepared for breakthroughs, and for the sudden breakdown of what is preventing you from expressing your fullest potential. Our Solar Plexus, Heart, and Third Eye are the Chakras that are likely to be stimulated most powerfully by this energy.
We are going through the last phase of a dark cycle in human history: the activation of the Lion’s Gate portal on August 8th is urging us to remember who we truly are and inspiring us to have faith in ourselves, to embrace transformation and change without fear.
We are cosmic beings with an enormous spiritual potential that we are currently not using. The Lion’s Gate Activation raises our collective vibration: this celestial event reminds us that we are the Universe experiencing itself, and we have everything we need within. We have the power to change our reality and to create and manifest whatever we dream.
