Lion’s Gate Portals occur every year when the sun is aligned with Sirius (the brightest star in the night sky), and also with Orion’s Belt and the Earth.
The lion represents courage and personal power. Yoga and Ayurveda are very much in tune with the daily, monthly and yearly cycles, as well as it is with the influence that celestial bodies have on us. Ayurveda has its own branch of Astrology called Jyotish.
According to astrology, Sirius possesses the expansive qualities of Jupiter and the motivation of Mars.
There are two weeks between July 26 and August 12 when the portal is “open.”
Its powers are especially potent today (August 8), which some consider the Galactic New Year.
It is important not to ignore the significance of the date (August 8, or 8/8). Number eight is associated with wealth, good fortune, and good vibes in numerology. Moreover, eight represents infinity when turned sideways. It is a symbol of abundance, which may have a connection to what you are manifesting right now.
In Jerusalem’s Old City, there is a Lion’s Gate, which holds enormous historical and cultural significance. Also known as St. Stephen’s Gate or Bab al-Asbat in Arabic, it’s one of the prominent entry points into the city’s ancient walls. Its name is derived from the exquisite lion reliefs adorning its facade.
Its historical significance comes from its connection to various events. This gate played a key role in reunifying Jerusalem during the Six-Day War in 1967. The event holds deep emotional and political significance for Israelis and Jews worldwide. Additionally, the gate provides access to significant religious sites, including the Via Dolorosa and the Church of St. Anne.
Its location at the junction of several religious quarters also underscores its role in fostering interfaith interactions. Pilgrims and tourists from various backgrounds converge here, contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the area.
Beyond its historical and religious significance, the Lion’s Gate symbolizes the complex tapestry of Jerusalem’s history and ongoing dialogues about identity, heritage, and faith.
