Enter The Lion’s Gate On 8:8!

By: Melissa of Eighth House Wisdom

Every year when the sun moves into Leo an energetic gateway opens known as the Lions Gate or the Lions Gateway Portal. It brings with it Starseed Energy, charged by the Sun’s exalted placement, and capped with the rise of Sirius - Earth’s brightest star. As an astrologer who’s business is called Eighth House Wisdom there is a natural synchronicity with this astro event. Because the exact portal opening happens each year on 8:8. The potential of the Lions Gate energy reminds me why I study and practice astrology. We humans frequently say that life does not come with a guidebook or a map. But I beg to differ!

For me, my natal chart is a map of the soul’s journey complete with setting and characters for this lifetime. A transit reports help me hone in on specific symbols, themes, and events for a time-limited period. This information has been a gift providing clarity, direction and look for’s on the road ahead. It’s the gift I am blessed to give each one of you in your reports and 1:1 readings for use at times like these.

Knowledge is power and this kind of knowledge equals star power! But let’s get back to the topic at hand, explaining the Lions Gate Portal...

The Fixed Star Sirius

Sirius is a fixed star and it’s position activates the Lion’s Gate. That means Earth’s orbit only crosses a fixed star during certain times of year. That’s why the Lions Gate always happens during Leo season in the northern hemisphere. Sirius is also known as the Dog Star. It is part of the constellation Canis Major. Which means “Greater Dog” in Latin. Right now you can see Sirius in most early morning skies. It also in close proximity to the Constellation Orion, specifically near the end of his belt, in the sign of Cancer. This year Sirius made it’s appearance in the morning sky on July 7. Hits is peak on 8/8 and closes the portal on 8/12.

7/26 is known as the Galactic New Year and it sets up a Supercharged Stargate Portal. This energy elevates any efforts toward a cosmic or spiritual reset! The energy activates when the star Sirius rises with the morning Sun. The portal peaks when Sirius rises just before the Sun. During the peak energy the star activates the star at the tip of Orion’s belt as well as powerful grid points on Earth. Today on 8/8, Sirius rises before the Sun in the morning horizon linking multiple star energies and elevating human consciousness as a whole!
