As we dive into the month of August, we have the Wounded Healer Chiron, faith filled Jupiter, stable Saturn, and transformative Pluto all in retrograde. Then, halfway through the month, the maverick planet of Uranus will join in too. With all of these cosmic bodies stationed retrograde, we are likely finding ourselves taking a trip down memory lane or just feeling like we need to revisit the past in some way before we can move ahead. This is an opportunity to clear out something from our history with an opportunity to heal.  If we find ourselves feeling stuck or confused about how to move forward with something, revisiting the past under all of this retrograde energy is actually a positive.  This slow motion backward movement is meant to really dig in deep.  Process slowly from the inside out… so that when the planets do begin their forward motion again, we do not need to retrace these steps again. 
As we journey through the heart of Leo season….vitality is power!  We have so many amazing alignments supporting love and relationships throughout the month as well. Expect to feel confident, bold and creative this month!
Let’s take a closer look at the astrology for August 2021- 
On Sunday, August 2nd… the Venus, the planet of love is trine with Uranus…the planet of surprise.  This is a harmonious alignment.  It is showing us that we may find love in the most unexpected of places! This energy is wonderful for our relationships in general from friends to family and new love.  This is a time to enjoy the company of those that we love. Xo
On Friday, August 6th… The Sun which rules our ego is squaring off with the planet of shock and surprise…Uranus!  This can be a day where we may feel off kilter, out of balance or perturbed by some information that comes our way. Whatever unfolds is likely to be short-lived… so, use caution when acting or speaking on impulse. 
On Sunday, August 8th we have a Leo New Moon AND the Lion’s Gate Portal 8/8….I am so excited about this moon and event!  This is one of the most magical days of the month and brings some high-frequency energy our way. Use this time of heightened energy frequency for spiritual work, healing and manifestation!   Set those intentions! 
Every year from July 28th until August 12th, the Lion’s Gate opens with its peak on 8/8. The number 8 represents infinity…the infinite soul that we are and the infinite journey that we take.
This Lion’s Gate is where the Sun is in Leo and we witness the star Sirius moving closer to Earth, which is seen in alignment with Orion’s belt.  This portal is called the “Lion’s Gate” due to the sun being in the sign of Leo, symbolizing the lion that embodies the animal’s courage and noble energy. This combination of energy opens a portal that allows high vibrational energy.
Sirius is one of the brightest stars in the sky and is known as our Spiritual Sun. While our earthly Sun illuminates our physical world which is an illusion, our Spiritual Sun illuminates the truth of our timeless soul.  While our Sun is responsible for shining down life for our physical bodies, (especially when it’s in its ruling sign of Leo), Sirius is responsible for beaming down life for our spiritual bodies.
This is why the opening of the Lionsgate Portal can bring awakenings and lift our consciousness to new heights.  What can you expect and experience under this Lionsgate activation: Heart healings, Third eye awakenings, Higher Chakra openings, Psychic downloads, Visits, Peace, Technology and Creativity.
