Can you feel it? This intensity? This rush of energy in the air?
I know I can. And I know that many of the women around me: clients and friends alike, are emailing me, often, the past few days… Wondering. What is this intense, yucky feeling in the air?
The truth is, I don’t have the logical understanding, anymore than you do, right now, to explain it. That will become clear to all of us, when we have the wisdom of retrospection. But what I do know is this:
We are in a very rare time of transformation. Whether you’re embracing it, or resisting it, it is happening. It’s just a whole lot easier to deal with, when you embrace and accept it.
“Each year on August 8th we enter into what is called the Lion’s Gate. This term refers to the significance of the number eight and the astrological sign Leo, which is represented by the lion.
This year we have an extra special Lion’s Gate—the 888 portal. The first number eight stands for the month of August, being the 8th month. The second eight is the day and the third is the year. In numerology we add up the single digits of complex numbers until we get to a single digit number—in this case 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8.
The triple eight portal represents great significance for all of society in this unique astrological year.
The number eight is the symbol for infinity—as above, so below. It is the number of the universe and the infinite gifts that are possible if we offer ourselves and our agendas to the greater good. Eight is also the number associated with harmony, balance, abundance and power.
The 8th of August is the high point in what is known as the Lion’s Gate.
This portal opens between the 26th of July and 12th of August, while the sun is in the astrological sign of Leo—the lion.
During this time light waves from the star, Sirius, bathes Earth with keys and codes to assist us with our spiritual evolution.”

“We are going to be going through a phase whereby we are reaffirming our boundaries, taking responsibility for ourselves and more importantly taking accountability for all that is in our lives, all that we are and also who we are about to become.
This is also a time for karmic repercussion and also the shadow side of masculine energy is being brought to the forefront; this means that we are being made aware of anger, aggression, selfishness, misuse of power, frustration, resentment and even hatred. It is also to be noted, with the recent killing of the lion, Cecil, which was brought to our attention during the phase of Leo, all of these things have shown up on a mass scale. Although this has been a time for the darker/negative aspect of the masculine side, we have also experienced a surge of hearts opening and it has been of notable change on a global level.
Again, this is a great time for healing, for soothing the soul and repairing any damage that has been done due to the masculine’s shadow energy. This is not solely about one lion; it is an example of the energy that is currently at play on a mass scale. The killing of Cecil during Leo, and it being brought it to our attention right before the Lion’s Gate opened up, is a way for us to focus on major change that is much-needed.
This is a time whereby we will all be focusing on the masculine wounded energy that is within us. We all have parts of the shadow side of the masculine inside us and we all are capable of experiencing and expressing all of the emotions that are associated with it. This energy is here to calm it down, to show it to us and then show us more effective ways of dealing with it. We can all express our anger without using aggression—it is only our wounded selves that allow us to be triggered until it rages out of control.
All those who are very sensitive to energy will have felt the incredible pain and anger that has roared up over these last few weeks and, unless each individual has protected their energy field, it will have directly affected their psyche. We also must be very aware right now of the energetic vibrations we send out and carry around with us. It is essential to clear our energy by sending out waves of unconditional love, peace, calm and compassion, but most importantly and firstly we must send ourselves self-love and acceptance. It is always advisable to protect ourselves first before we attempt to protect or heal anything or anyone else. Otherwise, we will find ourselves very quickly debilitated and drained.”

Be kind a gentle with yourself during this period of time.
Respect your body’s needs, take as much rest as you can, and allow the lessons and feeling to transpire within you and through you. Remember: you are not your thoughts. Allow them to pass.
And importantly: be open to what this cosmic time is teaching and sharing with you. Right now, you are in an invaluable portal, where everything you have always wanted, is accessible to you.
You just have to be willing to change.
