The Lion’s Gate Opening Tarot Spread

lion's gate opening tarot spreadThe opening of the Lion’s Gate Portal is one of the most magical celestial events that occurs every year reaching its peak on the 8th of August during Leo season.

It coincides with the rise of the morning star Sirius, which will be visible in the Eastern sky above the horizon just before dawn between the 26th July and 12th August.

Sirius is situated below Orion’s belt in the Canis Major (Greater Dog) constellation.

In ancient Egypt it marked the annual flooding of the Nile, which nourished the dry soil for growing crops.

There is a theory that the pyramids of Giza including the Sphinx (lion’s body!) were built in such a way that they aligned with Sirius and two stars situated in Orion’s belt forming a triangle.

This triangle – the Gate Portal – is now temporarily visible in our night sky before sunrise, and Earth’s alignment with Sirius marks a time of empowerment, accelerated evolution, spiritual activation and ascention.

That all sounds pretty epic, but just like eclipses, solstices and equinoxes, we can observe and harness these powerful portal energies to raise our vibrations.

After the recent Aquarius full moon has guided us to this point, we are now standing in front of the Lion’s Gate Portal about to step through.

Stepping through and stepping up.

This is a joyous and exciting moment. Tune into this magical cosmic energy to spiritually cleanse and renew.

Focus on your Solar Plexus Chakra, which is associated with Leo – confidence, abundance, healthy boundaries, willpower, creativity and leadership, making decisions, setting directions, personal identity, authenticity, courage and resilience.

Remember, we are experiencing a global shift at the point of no return, but stepping through the Lion’s Gate Portal into unknown territory also opens up to new potential and possibilities.

Activate your inner power with this tarot spread to guide you through the Portal:

1. What do I need to leave behind?
2. What do I need to take with me?
3. What will I find?
4. What energy will I activate?

The Lion’s Gate Opening Reflected In The Tarot

lion's gate opening reflected in the tarot

The Lion’s Gate is opening on the 8th August (8/8), but what does that mean? And how can you make the most of it?

In astrology, the alignment of the earth, sun (currently in the zodiac Leo) and Sirius (the brightest star in the sky) is called the opening of the Lion’s Gate.

It is said that during this time you can harness the power of the Lion’s Gate to activate your third eye.

Sirius as the brightest star in the night sky is easily visible. Look up and it often stands out from all the other stars.

It pops up in Greek and Egyptian mythology, and it is said that around the 8/8 date Sirius can be seen above the pyramid of Giza.

Sirius is called the spiritual sun hence its alleged spiritual powers we can harness, especially at the time of the Lion’s Gate alignment.

In the Tarot, Strength is number 8 in the Major Arcana – a link to the 8/8 date and to the zodiac sign Leo.

Also note the lemniscate above the maiden’s head – the symbol of infinity, and together with the number 8 also holds empowerment and rebirth.

Talking about rebirth, Strength in the Tarot is also linked numerically to key no. 17, The Star (1+7=8), and the star on the image is 8-pointed.

The Star symbolises higher consciousness, so questions to explore in connection with this card and the Lion’s Gate opening are:

  • How can I awaken my divine light?
  • How can I align with my higher self/authentic self?
  • What does my soul need right now to evolve?
How to harness the power of the Lion’s Gate?

The best thing to do is to take some time out to go inwards.

Unplug from devices and social media.

Meditate. This can involve the classic meditation of sitting still with your eyes closed, but you could also take an evening stroll through the local park or forest. Time out in nature helps to calm down an overactive, over-stimulated mind.

Take a relaxing bath.

Meditate on the Strength card. Focus on where in your life you want to activate your empowerment, passion, creativity and resilience.

Why not try a Third Eye Chakra meditation? I do like this one, so if you’re curious, give it a go.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane
