Special Astrology Report: Lions Gate Portal

August 8th, 2023

How To Use This Powerful Configuration


by Andrea Dupuis

Why is everyone so excited about Lion’s Gate Portal? It’s not the biggest planetary event, but it seems to get a lot of attention. Likely because it provides an opportunity for us to create and manifest our dreams in the height of the optimistic Leo season. 

We are all looking for hope and ways to make our life better, and this portal gives us a chance to focus on what we want to create in our lives.

Where does Lions Gate come from? 

Every year around August 8th the fixed star Sirius rises and is visible again on the eastern horizon before dawn. This cosmic event is where the term ‘Lions Gate Portal’ comes from. 

The fixed star Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. Sirius means “Glowing” in Greek. It’s also known as one of the most spiritual stars, bringing a divine spark with it. 

We can feel the soil of life is more fertile and possible. It’s a unique opportunity this month in the area of our charts where Leo is. 

Sirius was an important star to ancient Egyptians. When it became visible again every year around the same time, it indicated a flooding of the Nile. 

This was a powerful time for those living near there as farming season would begin again and the soil would become fertile again. 

It was considered a blessed time! 

In modern days this time can be used to turbo charge our manifestations and set our intentions. 

How you can use this time

The lions gate portal provides an opportunity to ‘manifest’ and to focus on creating, especially in the area of your chart that Leo rules. It’s a sweet window during the most optimistic time of year – Leo season. 

You can use this unique portal by looking up which part of your chart Leo rules and set your intentions for this area. While this portal does super charge your manifestations for all areas of your life, it will be especially potent for the area where Leo rules (your Queen or Kingdom). 

Where is your Queen or Kingdom in your chart?

Each of us has Leo ruling an area of our chart no matter if we have planets there or not. Leo is considered the King of the zodiac (as it’s ruled by The Sun, the most powerful life-giving planet, that which everything else revolves), and like any good king or queen we can use our power for good or evil. 

To see where Leo rules for you check your rising sign below. The area is our King or Queen-dom. It’s the place in our charts where we are the most king or queen-like, where we can achieve high levels and where we can shine the brightest. It’s where we are a natural leader. It also shows the area we can exude the most power and grace… It’s where we can lead with the fierce yet gentle heart Leo is known for. 

The Shadow Side of Leo… 

However as with all signs we have to be careful of the shadow side of the sign. Wherever it rules in our chart can also indicate where we can become prideful, arrogant and even aggressive in our pursuit of power. 

The lesson of Leo is to ‘tame the inner lion’ that part of us that wants to rule ruthlessness, and instead focus on compassion, grace and patience. 

Leo is connected to the Strength card in tarot. In the image a woman with an infinity symbol above her crown pets a lion. She is using gentleness and sweetness to tame the wild beast. The infinity symbol above her head shows her connection to the divine.

Ways to utilise the manifesting power of the Lion’s Gate Portal:

  • Get clear on what you want to create in your life through journaling, visualisation or meditation and then start taking actions toward it!
  • Start a new exercise, discipline or devotion practice and commit to it
  • Spend time near water, lakes, rivers or ocean to cool off from the intense Yang energy of high summer
  • Tune into your spirituality and allow that divine spark from Sirius to help you gain clarity on your life
