Insights and Art by Kerstin Hern of The Mirrored Lantern
The Lion’s Gate portal takes place on August 8th when our sun aligns with the brightest star in our sky, Sirius, a fixed star in the constellation Canis Minor. Sirius is also called the “Dog Star.”
Doing work—be it ritual, meditation, journaling—with the intention to align your energy with this open portal’s vibration will speed up and expand the energy and intentions you are putting out. This is a big “leveling up” shift with a sort of a pulsing, electrical feel to it.

Using a green, gold, or yellow candle, carve two “8”s on your candle and acknowledge Sirius in your petition when you state your intentions. For example: “May the power of Sirius and the Lion’s Gate portal accelerate my intentions with extra luck and abundance!”
8/8: Eights represent infinity, flow, prosperity, and spirituality. With two eights, we can think of it like an “as above, so below” flow cycling up and down and back up to the heavens, in a stream of elevated consciousness and wisdom. This energetic flow is fueled by the fire of the Leo lion sun, the Dog Star Sirius.
The sigil represents the star Sirius. You can use this sigil on your altar to get maximum dual star energy and the intuitive magick energy of the moon in your ritual!
May you walk through the Lion’s Gate with fire wings carrying you through your divine transformation and into abundance, my friends!

We start February, the month most associated with love—both romantic love, self love, and agape— with Venus in Pisces, adding a dreamy, soft energy swirling around our hearts… The low vibration of Venus in Pisces is being gullible in love or money, overly generous to a fault, and/or getting completely lost and dissolved in another, which *can* be an ecstatic fantasy space to pop in and out of...

Happy new year, friends! We have collectively entered the energy of 2023, a “7” year in numerology… Sevens are spiritual numbers that offer opportunity to reflect, engage philosophy and spiritual inquiry for personal growth, thoughtful analyzation in all matters, and psychological integration and wholeness. Along with this theme of reflection is that we start the year in a handful of retrograde planetary energy. Mercury (communication, thinking, writing) is in retrograde until the 18th, Mars (action, desire, passion, motivation) until the 12th, and Uranus (technology, major shifts, disruptions, sacred challenges, transformation) until the 22nd...
