Today’s New Moon in Leo heralds the Lion’s Gate Portal, amplifying opportunities for us to take action on our personal passion projects and opening new doors in our lives. The Lion’s Gate Portal occurs when Sirius, the brightest star, comes back into view and moves in alignment with the sun and is one of the luckiest days of the year. Falling on August 8th, the number eight in numerology is the spiritual number of infinite possibilities and prosperity, this mystical event is accelerating your Leo New Moon manifestations. Today is THE best day to manifest your most passionate desires and wildest dreams, so don’t hold back!

Fire sign Leo, symbolized by the regal Lion, is ruled by the sun and rules the fifth house of romance and self-expression. Those born under the sign of the Lion—or those who have this fixed sign in their charts—tend to be creative, ambitious leaders who take decisive action to make their visions a reality. On the flip side, they can be stubborn egomaniacs! If you find yourself falling prey to the latter, fear not, La Luna is bringing transformative energy to help us break through fears, old programming and open our hearts to the person we want to become. Take a queue from bold Leo and lead with courage; be willing to take risks, knowing the powers of today’s epic universal event are supporting you!
