The Lion’s Gate – August 8, 2020 (8-8)

As I’ve done before, I’ve chosen cards from two of my favorite oracle decks to share with us the most important information that we can have to make the best use of the energies that will be available to us during this time.  I’ve chosen four cards from The Good Tarot deck and four cards from The Enchanted Map deck.  Both decks were developed by Colette Baron-Reid with visual art by Jena DellaGrottaglia.  All are available on-line and through Hay House.

First, a bit of information about the Lion’s Gate. 

The annual 8:8 Lion’s Gate occurs on August 8th during the sign of Leo, the Lion. It is the time of year when Earth aligns with the star Sirius and the Galactic Center, creating a powerful interdimensional Portal that unites “Heaven and Earth”. The energies of the Lion’s Gate assist us into the higher dimensions that are guarded by the Royal Sirian Lions of Sirius, our Spiritual Sun.

This year, the Portal began opening on July 26th, however 8-8 is when the Portal is in perfect alignment. During this time, Sirius is closer to Earth. You can see it rise before our sun. This star is the brightest star in our sky, many times brighter than our sun. On the 8th it aligns with Orion’s Belt (or the 3 Sisters) and the Lion’s Gate is activated. It sends incredible light, accompanied by messages, downloads, codes, and insights to Earth. While the Lions Gate is open, we are blessed with increased power and strength to change the world as a planetary sanctuary for all life.

The Ancient Egyptians knew the power of this star gate and positioned Cheops to be in exact alignment with this most important event.  As the Portal opens, we receive streaming intense photon light waves from the Great Central Sun, through our Sun, Sirius, the Earth Grid Point of the Sphinx and The Great Pyramid of Giza. When the Sun is conjunct Sirius it creates a Solar Star Gate. The Great Pyramid, and all Egyptian pyramids were built as Ascension Chambers, not burial places. The Sphinx was designed in the image of a lion with a human face to honor the Sirius Lion Masters.

There are many lightworkers offering various forms of energy activations online over these next few days.  I plan to participate in an activation facilitated by Troika with St Germain later today.  (  If you prefer to do your activation solo, I’m borrowing an exercise from the Black Swan Temple ( that may help you to “open the energies of the Heart of the Lion’s Gate.”

Exercise to open the energies of the Heart of the Lion’s Gate:

  1. Go outside before dawn (doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy) and look to the East
  2. Call into your heart the star energies of Sirius and our Sun.
  3. Breathe into the area of the heart and allow the pre-dawn energies to enter you
  4. Ask to be release of all that no longer serves you
  5. Ask to be aligned with your highest soul path and spiritual evolution
  6. Expand those feelings like a light glowing golden in your heart.
  7. Radiate this love and light to all of your cells!
  8. Radiate this love and light to people and places you wish to send it to.
  9. Radiate this love and light back to yourself.  Offer yourself compassion, empathy, love, support.
  10. Envision yourself cocooned in this golden light!
  11. Open to receive guidance and inspiration for your next steps!  What is calling you now to be, do and/or create?
  12. Affirmations:  My heart beats to the rhythm of Love. I am Love, Loving, Lovable & Loved!  I am powerful, dignified and creative!

Now, on to the cards given to us by the Oracles for this transformative year.

Hierophant, Spiritual Practice from The Good Tarot deck, is followed by Magician, Alchemy ; World, Perspective; and Sun, Abundance.

Slow and Steady from The Enchanted Map deck is followed by Details, Details; Magical Map Shifter and Rescue.

Let’s look now at how these cards fit together and apply to the conditions that exist during this Lion’s Gate of 2020.

This is a time when great streams of Love, Light and Inspiration directed at our lives here on Earth flow through the portal opened by Sirius, through our Sun, for the benefit of us all.  Hierophant’s message of a consistent spiritual practice can guarantee conscious contact with your Higher Power. Daily rituals can help give some structure to your life in these uncertain times, prayer and meditation combined with time spent outside surrounded by Nature will refresh and renew your energy.  Magician reminds you that when you commit to a relationship with Spirit, the results you’ve been awaiting will manifest beautifully, as if by magic.  World asks you to shift your perspective (‘we’ rather than ‘me’), have no fear and remember that you are an immortal being having a human experience.  Surrendering your will to what Spirit has planned will allow you to be a conduit for miracles.  Sun confirms that everything is possible and everything you need to know will be illuminated in Divine timing.  Share this clear knowing, this abundance, with others in grace and deep gratitude.

Slow and Steady reassures you that this is a time for easy movement, unhurried steps and a steady heart.  Trust that taking life at this more leisurely pace will give you greater access to your dreams.  Details, Details cautions you to pay attention to the tiniest details, clarity and transparency are key.  Things are not what they seem and it’s important that you look more closely and gain greater understanding.  Magical Map Shifter wants you to pay attention to those who come into your life, be awake and aware, as your whole perspective of who you are and why you’re here will shift into a better version of yourself.  Rescue is your confirmation that, although it sometimes isn’t easy to ask for help, whatever support you need, you will get from Spirit.  Ask and you will receive; there is no need to fear.

Now, just for fun, lets combine the cards in a different order!  Hierophant’s spiritual practice fits in beautifully with the Slow and Steady pace that you’re embracing.  The alchemy that Magician brings to your life allows you to see beneath the surface and behind the curtain to the Details, Details that need to be recognized as essential.  Shift your perspective to more of a World view, noticing the people who are most important in your life these days, and watch the Magical Map Shifter help you shift into a more awake, aware version of yourself.  Let the abundance of Light from the Sun pour into your life and trust that Spirit is ready to support you with whatever you need.  Your Rescue is assured when you ask with Love; there is no need to fear.

During these days when the portal is open, we have the potential to receive downloads of Light and Energy that we’ll be able to use, in Co-Creation with Spirit to continue the development of a new life on this beautiful Earth.  If we have the courage (Lion) and are willing to accept the “assignment” we can filter and amplify this Light for the benefit of others, so that all will benefit.  We have the potential to share these gifts through so many channels and at so many levels in order to reach those “kindred spirits” who are seeking what we’re all seeking.

What is that?  A bright new world filled with love and compassion, peace and harmony; where none will be seen as “other” or “less-than” but all are welcome to share whatever gifts they possess to the degree that they are able.

I thank you for your patience and your attention.  It is my honor to share these ideas with you, my kindred spirits.  Namaste.

Love, Major Arcana, The Good Tarot (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

Love is all you need; love for yourself and love for others. In fact, we are all reflections of one another. Separation is only an illusion. What if, instead of seeing things as either/or, you choose to see the unity in all things? Love is all around you. Spirit loves you unconditionally. You can give and receive abundant love. ❤

Fool, Major Arcana, The Good Tarot (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

A spiritual approach seldom appears logical and I’ve been called “foolish” for seeing the glass half full and surrounded by rainbows and unicorns. However, when this Fool appears, I trust that anything is possible! We are spiritual beings having a human experience, so we can trust that the invisible realms will be guiding each step we take. 🍀

Magician, Major Arcana, The Good Tarot (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrottaglia)

You are not in this life experience alone, regardless of how it may feel sometimes. When you remember your co-creative partnership with Spirit and align yourself with it, then miracles happen. Your will and skill alone will have limited success. Through you, Spirit works magic. “Thy will be done through me.”

Patience, Major Arcana, The Good Tarot (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrottaglia)

“Lord, give me patience. And I need it NOW!”
Ok, that made you smile and maybe nod because you kind of agree and you certainly get it. However, this could be a tricky time, this whole waiting patiently thing. All your needs are met, you can feel that even if it isn’t visible just yet. Your guides and angels are looking out for you, you can feel their presence and you talk with them frequently. Moderation, my friend, moderation. There are things taking place behind the scenes that we don’t know about. We’ll get an obvious signal when it’s time to move, I promise. Until then, Patience.

Star, Major Arcana, The Good Tarot (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrottaglia)

Allow your imagination to add fuel to the Inspiration available to you today! If you focus in just the right way, everything around you points to a renewed sense of encouragement. After all the changes you’ve experienced, especially the last six months or so, you’ll be able to perceive the feeling of hope that comes with new beginnings. 🌟

Pig Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Cards (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrottaglia)

Open-minded thoughtful conversations are the order of the day as Pig Spirit asks that you use your mind wisely. Wisdom combined with your intuition will tell you when you have more learning to do. Are all the facts in front of you? Trust your connection with Spirit and trust your intuition.

Squirrel Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Cards (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrottaglia)

All those nuts you’ve gathered around you are not only for entertainment purposes! 🤣 They are filled with the wisdom and knowledge acquired through the work you’ve been doing. They have enormous potential to grow, so please relax and trust that there will always be enough. Spirit believes in you. Believe in yourself and know that you will always have enough and you will always be enough.

Armadillo Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Cards (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

Setting healthy boundaries is an important part of self-care and a huge challenge for many of us. Especially now, in order to be in alignment with your intentions and co-create your best life it’s critical that you learn to say no. As a complete sentence. Without further explanation. You may have some free time, but that doesn’t have to mean that you’re available. Trust your body’s signals and follow Armadillo Spirit’s guidance in making good decisions that are grounded in what is best for you right now.

Wasp Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Cards (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

Just as there’s a purpose for wasps in the natural world, so too there is a purpose for pain. Yes, I was disappointed when Wasp Spirit turned up today, because I’m not looking forward to more pain in my world. Haven’t we had enough??! But I’m hopeful that Wasp Spirit’s appearance means that this current pain is leading us to something far better than we could have imagined. Spirit has a plan. Sometimes the sting really hurts, but something better awaits you.

Crow Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Cards (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

“Those who don’t believe in magic never find it.” I believe that Roald Dahl said this, or something like it. Well, we are co-creating with Spirit and I, for one, do believe in magic, so I trust that we are right on target to see our dreams magically come to life in the visible world. It’s important that we be filled with gratitude and praise all that we have, complete or not. Crow Spirit brings assurance that whatever you’ve hoped for is on it’s way with Spirit as your co-creative partner.

Bat Spirit from Spirit Animal Oracle Deck (Colette Baron-Reid and Jena DellaGrotagglia)

We may all be waiting for this message: a rebirth is assured.   It’s old, it’s over, it’s finished and it’s time to leave it behind. Bat Spirit gives us a promise of a new beginning, containing all the best elements of what we’re walking away from. Trust that what seems to have died is actually shapeshifting into something more meaningful and wondrous. When we emerge from the darkness of this current tunnel, all will be revealed and things will be in an unbelievably beautiful new form that is better than we could ever have imagined.

Op-Ed on Our Current Situation

We hear and read from our most trusted sources (not mainstream media, by the way) that this is the time we’ve been waiting for.  We’ve chosen to be on the planet at this particular time.  We’re all in this together and, together, we can bring about this transformation of ourselves and our planet.  We have much to learn, much to gain from what is taking place all around us.  Well, a lot of what’s taking place makes my stomach hurt, makes it hard to catch my breath, makes it difficult to sleep at night.  Not always, but sometimes.  I miss my friends’ smiles and hugs; I miss my family gatherings.  I know that I am not alone.  I also know that there is a greater purpose in all of this.  There is a Divine Plan and I have to believe that I have a part to play.  As I look at how my personal life is changing, has changed, I can begin to see some possibilities.

I believe that we have a great opportunity here and I feel it every time my head hurts from the thoughts I’ve been thinking or my stomach hurts from the sneaky little fingers of fear that work their way through a minuscule crack in the shield of Light that I faithfully take up every morning.  I tend to be pretty hard on myself because I feel that I’m “not doing enough.”  Maybe you’re having those thoughts as well.

I believe that every thought and feeling that causes those feelings is really a request from my mind for more love, more acceptance and compassion for myself, from myself.  Right now, our “inner self” is asking for love and support as we navigate this time of great change.  We can give that by releasing inner judgment and releasing the need to understand everything that is coming up for us.  Rather than making ourselves crazy trying to understand each little why and wherefore, let’s simply observe those thoughts and feelings, thank them for whatever message they have for us and let them go.

Even more importantly now, this is a critical time for taking more time for yourself – more rest, more time in Nature, more fun time and time expressing yourself creatively.  Let this beautiful month of June seep into your body, mind and spirit as you allow yourself the time for a walk in the woods, wading in the stream, a massage or a facial from your favorite practitioner as soon as they re-open.  Take advantage of the beauty and spontaneous laughter and joy that is all around us, if we just take the time to look.
