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!”

The fierce and powerful Freyja was the Norse goddess of many dueling aspects! While she was the goddess of love, sexuality, fertility and beauty, she was also a warrior goddess of death, strength, lust, and war itself.
