Are you ready to step into the Lion’s gate 8/8 portal? A guide for the initiation.
What is a New Moon?
A new moon is the breath of fresh air after a full lunar cycle. A lunar cycle happens about every 28 days. A new moon is a great time to hone in on the lessons from the prior lunar cycle so that you can truly integrate them stepping forward into the current energies being bestowed upon you. New moons are also a very powerful time to set your intentions for what you want to implement and learn in the new cycle.
How Does the Moon Being in Leo Affect us?
Leo is the zodiac of the sun itself. In its divine form it is ultimate warmth, unique truth, sacred confidence and a true giver of self. This energy from the sun being in its native sign since July 23rd has driven us back into all of our lions hearts. Illuminating the truths that shine through us straight from our soul.
This energy has blessed us with the divine confidence to trust our inner guidance and to truly beam our lights fully without fear.
Its really demonstrated just how calculated spirit is with leo coming after cancer, the mother of the zodiac. Nurturing ourselves and going within so that our seed has the endurance to breakthrough and expose itself to the world in leo.
This moon isn’t about perfection, it’s about loving yourself through all your phases ENOUGH to share. To just be is true freedom. Leo is demanding you to be free in all that you are. Spirit created all of us with our own celestial blueprint that ONLY we have. The leo new moon is asking us to STAND in it no matter what phase it’s in.
Alrighty Nerds, Let’s Put Our Goggles on and Get into The Sciencey Scienceness Aspects
The leo new moon is happening on 8/8 at 16° Leo and is in conjunct with Mercury at 23° Leo. Which is when two planets look at each other like “aye you fine, lets be aligned” and they line up directly which blends their vibrations and work together.
The moon represents our emotions, while mercury represents communication, logic and
rationality. With these two aspects working together it gives us an opportunity to look at the emotional truths we’ve told ourselves and decide if they are truly logical when it comes to our core truth.
It also is helping us articulate our emotions and channel them in an outlet to be
expressed. We are recognizing how vital it is to just be so that our fellow humans can feel
comfortable in just being too.
Although Leo is the sign of the self it loves to basked in and to give off its light. Together we
shine much brighter in our authenticity then we ever could apart with masks.
What is this Lion’s Gate Portal Everybody is Talking About?
As you’ve probably heard this moon is on Leo crack because it is aligned with the peak of the
lions gate portal on 8/8. The lions gate portal is the rising of the star sirius, the brightest star in the sky that disappears from our night sky for a period of time before rising and thus activating the lions gate portal.
Sirius is associated with liberation and its rising was linked with the Nile flooding in ancient Khamit. Giving birth to a very fertile time spiritually because Sirius is considered the sun of our spirit. Light codes being downloaded, DNA being activated and consciousness evolving rapidly are all heightened greatly during this time.
The numerology of 8/8 is an infinite energy of success, progress and achievement. Which is
also super aligned with all the leo energy.
This is a time to get serious about what you’re manifesting. This energy is a surge of fertility for our dreams and desires. Make sure it is aligned with your inner truth because the energy is powerful and a great gift. As we know, with great gifts comes great responsibility. Which goes back into how calculated spirit is because in the next couple weeks we will enter organized and
responsible virgo grounding all of the activations from precious and vigorous leo.
A Ritual for the New Moon in Leo
Step one: Write your intentions on a sheet on paper
Step two: anoint the paper with a blessed oil to help activate the manifestation (orange, lemon, & cinnamon are great for emanating leo energy) but use what you got intention is more powerful than anything.
Step three: pick a candle (white, orange or yellow are preferred but again intention is everything.
The most powerful part of this is the flame) (also life hack, dollar tree has multi colored long neck candles great for altar work and rituals)
Step four: put your written intentions under the candle. Say a prayer and light the candle.
Step five: focus on the candle light, project your visualizations onto it gratefully asking the fire to assist in alchemizing this visual to reality. Pay attention to how the flame burns.

A Ritual for the Lion’s Gate Portal
Rise with sun and meditate with its warming light. Become aware of the light codes absorbing into your skin. Ask it to speak to you. Write and share the messages given. Also visualize it activating your manifestations like crops from the sun rays of father creator.
When night falls, meditate in the light of shining sirius. Imagine your vision in the womb of the night sky growing and being given life to by mother creator.
