today is the Lion’s Gate! the lion’s gate has connection to the solar gate of lammas which occurs when the sun crosses into 15 leo- the precise midpoint of the summer solstice and fall equinox. this is the middle of the sign of leo- the sign of the Lion. there is connection to Sirius during this time as depending on your location in the northern hemisphere Sirius has it’s helical rise sometime in august (for ojai, california where i live heliacal rise is 8/12). Sirius is the Spiritual Sun of our sun. if our sun and central star provides light and life on planet earth- Sirius provides spiritual Light and eternal Life. Divine Love, Wisdom, Power and Truth descend from this star and when we choose to work with Sirius consciously we can attune to it. today is an amazing day to do ceremony, ritual and/or drop into meditation to attune to the stellar lioness gate that is opening right now. if you have not heard my Higher Heart meditation that connects you to Sirius you can listen for free here- https://divineharmony.com/guided-meditations/higher-heart-chakra-meditation-2/

mars cojoins mean black moon lilith at 21’55 aries at 6:20pm, aligning the will and drive with the fierce Dark Feminine. i predict that fierce warrior women will be rising up in the coming months- to a degree we have not seen yet on the planet. the me too movement open the gates but what is forthcoming with mars triggering lilith and eris is going to take the movement even further. mars/lilitth is passionate, intuitive and intense. taking action based on intuition and inner knowing is key. just make sure you are not being motivated to act by the desire for power, control or revenge. righteous rage and heart anger can change the world! unskillful expression of anger that turns into violence can destroy the world. discernment and inner work is key!
