“If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.”
Unicorn Guidance Wednesday 8 August
Ruling Archangel: Raphael (Mercury)
Crystal of the day: Green fluorite
Lunar phase: Waning Moon in Cancer
Today is the opening of the Lion’s Gate portal. My friend, Claudia, has written a nicely succinct article about what this means that you can read HERE. Last year, I created a Tarot ritual for this day and while the astro data mentioned in that article obviously is no longer relevant, the ritual itself can still be used.
Incidentally, the 8 numerology of today (8/8) corresponds with the Leo energy of the Strength card in the Tarot. As you may be aware, Strength features a lion (Leo) and a lady who is the embodiment of divine feminine compassion. This is a wonderful archetype to contemplate today.
So what do we have in our cards for today that speak of the Lion’s gate energy? Well, pretty much everything! We have The High Priestess as our first card, representing the Divine Feminine. Then we have Passion from the realm of the Unicorns… ‘Passion’ being one of the keywords for the Strength card and Leo energy. Next we have the Leo Knight of Wands as our central theme card… Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up!!
I’m going to level with you now… I was going to ignore the Lion’s Gate this year! I didn’t think it would be as much of a thing this year since the whole date including the year doesn’t add up to 8 (it’s a 9 this year). However, it turns out that this is a yearly occurrence and not something we should try to sweep under the carpet.
Yep, these cards confirm that Lion’s Gate is a thing!
However, they also confirm that tension is building for the upcoming eclipse this weekend with the 9 of Swords. The High Priestess above this card corresponds with Luna and her cycles, so please try to relax and understand that this is both normal and cyclical (i.e. will soon be over).
The 8 (!) of Pentacles with the Knight of Cups and ‘Passion’ from the Unicorns shows that once we relax into the flow of the day, we can get much inspired work done today, as long as we are able to place ourselves in a state of creative flow. Create something that reflects your true passion today – no matter how small!
