New Moon in Leo 2021 & The Lion’s Gate Portal

SO EXCITED!!!!! The New Moon in Leo is today (Sunday 8th August 2021 at 14:51 UK time) and also the peak of this years Lion’s Gate Portal, so probably the strongest day of the year to do any manifestation work (especially if you are a Leo, or Leo rising!) 

New Moon intention setting (regardless of your sign) you will have an extra energetic boost as we’re also at the peak of the Lion’s Gate portal on the 8th August. The Lion’s Gate is the time when the Sirius star system and Earth align to create an energetic portal that brings in powerful energies of  accelerated  transformation, awakening and manifestation. It opens on the 28th July-12th August, and peaks today (8th August 2021). Today is a really fantastic opportunity to do any type of manifestation work, and bring in big changes. Try and find time today to not only set your New Moon intentions, but also to do a meditation practice, as it will likely bring you some really key messages and wisdom.
