August 8th, 2018 – Heliacal Rising of the “Isis” Star Sirius opens a portal referred to as the “Lion’s Gate.” It occurs when Sirius aligns with our Sun, the Earth and the Galactic Center! This happens annually when our Sun is in the constellation of Leo — hence the term Lion’s Gate.
Sirius, the brightest star in our galaxy, is most easily found by following the stars of Orion’s belt downwards, and is considered to be our “Spiritual sun.” It has been revered by many ancient cultures including the Incas, Druids, Egyptian, Essenes, Mayans and Polynesians.
It is said that evolutionary energy and all of the great Avatars including Isis, Osiris, the Cosmic Christ, and Buddha originated from Sirius. It is believed that it is home to the purest type of love and advanced technology. Many ancient cultures also believe that Sirius is the gateway to heaven, and that our souls go there once we depart.
The “heliacal rising” is the first day when the star rises and the Sun is far enough below the eastern horizon to make it visible in the morning twilight, after a period of about 77 days when it had not been visible. Each day after the heliacal rising, the star will rise slightly earlier and remain visible for longer before the light from the rising Sun makes it disappear. The conjunction of Sirius and our Sun does not occur at the same time in all latitudes and is not constant in the same region for a long period.
This year, according to Pacific Time (San Francisco), Sirius rose before the Sun on July 31st, but it remains hidden behind it’s glare until August 8th, 2018 when it has risen to an altitude of 7 degrees and can be seen.
The rising of Sirius is also associated with the term the Dog Days of Summer. This is actually not because of the hottest time of the year heat and dogs are lazily laying around in the heat that comes in the summer in the Northern Hemisphere, but because it is the star at that marks the nose of Canis Major, The Great Dog!
In ancient Egypt this time was considered New Years because it would coincide with the flooding of the Nile. Floods deposited precious silt that fertilized the farmlands along the river. The silt and nourishment that would come would assure the regeneration of their agricultural lands and therefore a was considered a great time of celebration.
On a galactic level, the Lion’s Gate is a portal that enables the rays of Sirius to reach our Earth via our Sun thereby assisting in the activation of dormant DNA encodings and Cosmic Christ seed within. It is said that streaming thru this Lion’s Gate is information and inspiration for the Divine Plan for Earth and all of Humanity!
On August 8th, we always have 8:8 yet this year because 2018 so we have we 8:8:8 the triple energies of the 8! The number 8 is known as the great Karmic Equalizer and is related to the Universal Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect. It is a force that can create as well as destroy! It balances the material and immaterial worlds. What we are thinking and believing manifests into what we are experiencing. On the material plane the highest aspects of the 8 energy is focused on results and manifesting abundance, prosperity, harmony, self confidence, inner strength and power. When placed on its side, the 8 becomes the symbol for infinity ∞ and reminds us that there are infinite creative possibilities.
Lions are not only the symbol of the constellation of Leo we are moving through at this time but they are also the Spirit keepers of this portal, and the Spirit Animal that guards the integrity of Mother Africa! They represent spiritual power and remind us to be courageous, strong, dignified, to have faith and to defend our birthrights! This exalted energy of Leo would also have us courageously take action and step into our sovereignty, leadership, courage, compassion and divine love for self and others.
In ancient Egypt the priesthood would perform elaborate rituals to receive these frequencies and then radiate them to others throughout the land!
In this current time we have many advanced guides and teachers who are helping with this transmission and dissemination of this higher knowledge, structure, frequencies and inspiration and you can help too!
