The meaning and history of the “Lions Gate Portal”.
A portal is a door, a gateway to lead you into somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, or places you’ve never been. The Lion’s Gate Portal opens on the 8th of August every year when there is a cosmic alignment of the star Sirius, constellation Orion’s Belt, and our beloved Earth.
As the name suggests, it harnesses the energy of the Leo Season (because the Sun’s in Leo during August, it’s no surprise we used Sunstone in our Leo bracelet too), offering you a headway to realize your manifestations.
Sirius has been traditionally revered in certain ancient cultures, especially in Egypt where the star was worshipped as Goddess Sopdet. Known to the Greeks as Sothis, and later on throughout the Middle Kingdom, she was linked to other gods and goddesses. Sopdet seemed to be conflated with Isis as a goddess and Anubis as a god. In the Pyramid Texts, mirroring the story of Osiris and Isis the pharaoh was believed to have had a child with Sopdet:
“Your sister Isis comes to you rejoicing for love of you. You have placed her on your phallus and your seed issues into her, she being ready as Sopdet, and Horus-Soped has come forth from you as Horus who is in Sopdet.” — Sopdet in the Pyramid Texts
Going back to the 1st Dynasty, Sopdet was known as ‘the bringer of the new year and the Nile flood’. When Sirius appeared in the sky each year, the Nile generally started to flood, bringing fertility to the land.
Hence, it makes total sense that the star is incredibly potent in aiding our manifestations practices and bringing abundance to everyone.
The Astrology Of The Number “8”
The number 8 has bearings in the houses and signs of the zodiac. The eighth house and the eighth sign of the zodiac correspond to Scorpio – the passionate and powerful water sign. In a classic tarot deck, the number 8 is representative of the “Strength” card. The card is peculiar because it showcases a woman having conversations with a lion. The symbol of infinite adorns the top of the card, which is basically the 8 in horizontal.
If this powerful illustration doesn’t evoke strength (And courage!), I think very few things in the world will.
The Numerology Of The Number “8”
In the territory of numerology, 8 is dynamic. It represents a bridge between the spiritual and the material spheres. It shows power, wealth, and auspiciousness. It also symbolizes the well-known “Infinity” knot of Celtic origins.
Furthermore, the folks with life path number 8 are believed to be the masters of integration of the psychical and physical. It’s, therefore, no wonder that 8 is “Strength” and 8 is always symbolic of achievements and goals.
