If you’re feeling a shift in energy this week, you’re definitely not alone. The new moon in Leo on August 8th represents creation, powerful self-expression, and ultimately rules over the heart. It’s also known as the Lion’s Gate portal, which happens once a year during Leo season when the Earth aligns with the fixed star, Sirius.
This shift in energy provides you with an opportunity to upgrade your reality. While Leo is recognized for strong nature and heartfelt bravery, Sirius is known for bringing forth harvest and abundance: a unique yet ideal combination for manifesting a new you.
Cannabis has always gone hand in hand with spirituality, energetic shifts, and powerful self-reflection and expression. As you take advantage of the Lion’s Gate portal, pair this opportunity for learning, growth, and redirection with your favorite plant.
What is the Lion’s Gate Portal?
Although the August 8th new moon was the peak moment for manifestation, the Lion’s Gate portal inspires energetic shifts from July 28 to August 12, so you can still take advantage of the tail end of this powerful event.
There are a lot of reasons the Lion’s Gate portal is significant in astrology: it marks the time when Sirius rises and becomes visible in the night sky, the sun is in its home sign, Leo, and peaks on a date that represents infinity (8/8).
However, all you really need to know about this astrological event is how it can bring abundance and prosperity to your life, allowing you to open up, let go of insecurities, and truly manifest your dreams and goals.
There are quite a few different ways to manifest during this time, depending on your nature, your needs, and where you want to be in life.
However, here are some of the most common manifestation techniques to take advantage of over the next couple of days, and the best Eaze products to pair them with:
Take a Financial Risk + Old Pal Glazed
The Lion’s Gate portal offers us boundless creative energy to take on new tasks or redirect ourselves entirely. If you’ve been thinking about taking a financial risk, no matter how big or small, now might be the time for you to take that leap.
Maybe you’re at a financially stable job, but you’re feeling unfulfilled in your career and have been toying with the idea of quitting. Or, maybe you just want to upgrade from ordering an eighth off Eaze, to going for the full ounce.
Either way, leaping into the unknown a bit is a great way to move through the portal.
Expel Negative Energy + Pacific Stone Blue Dream
If you’ve been struggling with your mood, or the moods of the people you surround yourself with, this might be a great time for you to look internally and figure out what needs to change.
It’s time to create a happy life for yourself, whatever that might look like for you. Get rid of negative energy and let go of past hang ups or unresolved emotions: a good hit of Blue Dream will help you understand exactly what needs to be done.
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone + Sonder Stoned Fruit Space Crystals
A lot of us have been working from home for the past year, allowing us to retreat into our comfort zones entirely. Shake things up in a way that makes sense for you: experience new places, people, feelings, flavors.
Of course, you can always start by snacking on some of Sonder’s Stoned Fruit Space Crystals, a flavor you’ve likely never experienced before, and a high that will help you branch out like no other.
Direct Your Energy Inwards + Om Edibles Lavender Epsom Salt Mineral Soak
Are you the type of person constantly worrying about the people around you? If so, this year’s Lion’s Gate portal is the perfect time for you to move that energy in a new yet necessary direction: inwards.
You’re used to showering the people you care about with love and support, but you’ve got to remember to give yourself the same – if not more.
Unwind and practice self care with Om Edibles’ Lavender Epsom Salt Mineral Soak. Indulge in a warm, relaxing bath and help you help yourself.
Set New Career Goals + Country Good Neighbor Preroll
