We are stepping into one of my most favorite times of the year! The Lionsgate happens every year, with energies peaking on August 8th. As with most things relating to celestial bodies, the energies and effects can be felt a weaker so before and after the actual energetic peak.
In the broadcast I discuss the significance of the number 8 as a number of abundance, prosperity and infinite energetic possibilities. Two number eights together create a portal, known as the Lionsgate. This year also have the profound grounding and balancing effect of "2020", which as you can likely sense the year, is a right of passage in and of itself.
2 is a number of partnership and balance, but sometimes it may also be the symbol of opposition or conflict. Ultimately 2 shows us that we are not separate and that everything is connected. Added together 2020 give us 4, which is a number with foundational energies. So in general, 2020 is helping us all to understand that we are all connected and supporting us in releasing the aspects of heaviness and toxicity in our world so that we can truly have a foundation with integrity.
I mention that the double 8 is often written and used in energy healing and energetic work as the "Len So My". Len So My brings in pure love and the highest vibrational energies possible. I have an image of the symbol to the left.
I also mention the role of Sirius in the grand cycle of time, sometimes called "The Great Year", also in sync with the Hindu Yuga Cycle. The grand cycle of time takes 24,000 years, with 12,000 years descending and 12,000 years ascending energies. The closer our sun gets to Sirius, the more and more light and high vibrational energies are able to be received by our planet. The image above shows the 24,000 year cycle and binary orbit of Sirius and our Sun. The image below shows the Hindu Yuga Cycle and The Great Year.
We have three energies converging into now powerful theme at the beginning of August 2020.
August 1st is Lughnasa, or La Lunasa, a Celtic and Wiccan celebration of abundance. Lughnasa is often presided of by Goddess Habundia or Habonde. We meet her in our mediation in today's podcast, and celebrate her in the online gathering August 2nd. (See link below for information to join us or to see the recording).
August 2nd we have Sun square Uranus. which invites us to move beyond our ego and perceived/self created identity into a new and potentially infinitely powerful conception of ourselves as "high technology." High technology is the stead of Uranus, and with Habondia's energies we get to remember that not only are we always connected, but that we have everything we need, and we can attract and create anything we desire. It is merely a matter of remembering our own innate abilities and capacities and energetic beings.
August 3rd we have a full moon in Aquarius. Aquarius is the sign of the future, of moving beyond the commonly held beliefs and ways of "the norm" and potentially stepping onto "weird" or alternative ways of being and understanding so that we can live a brighter and better future. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, so these two together with Habondia are tremendously supportive of our own personal "awakening" to our true nature and innate capacities.
