8-8-8 The Lion’s Gate of Love

How Fiercely Can You Love?

Can you love with the heart of a lion? Ready or not, you’re being asked to do so.

Much has been said this week about the amazing 8-8-8 Lion’s Gate portal we are experiencing. This is an impossibly rare culmination of Leo energies, while our consciousness planet Mercury joins the royal star, Regulus in Virgo. Regulus is also known as the Heart of the Lion and is the brightest star in the Leo constellation.

The Lion’s Gate portal is happening on Saturday, 8-8-8, the 8th day of the 8th month, in an 8 year (2+0+1+5 = 8). The number 8, also happens to be associated with Leo, strengthening you with courage to expand you beyond your limits.

Cecil - The Royal Star of The Lion

In numerology, the number 23 is known as the Royal Star of the Lion, and is associated with Regulus.  Amazingly, in numerology the name Cecil adds up to the number 23, as does the word Lion. Coincidence? More likely it a divine synchronicity.

So why did Cecil’s tragedy happen? How is a courageous lion’s death by the hands of a coward possibly helping us? It has to do with your heart. Leo, in astrology, happens to rule the heart. Big-hearted lions are famous for their affectionate and courageous nature. They have a lot to teach us.

As spiritual people, especially since the Law of Attraction has become so widely misinterpreted by the mainstream, we are completely and totally afraid of anything we perceive as negative. Any fear, anxiety, sadness, grief, anger, jealousy (you know, human emotions) that aren’t in alignment with what we “want” are so deeply buried it takes a global event to make us process them.

Yes, it is great to limit your intake of news. However to completely ignore all the suffering in the world, and in your life, is not only unsustainable, it is irresponsible. If you want a life of limitless abundance, you must accept the infinite aspects of the Universe. That means loving those parts of yourself, and others, that you find unacceptable. That’s true courage. That’s living with the heart of a lion!

Your Heart Is Bursting Wide Open

Much has been expected of this 8 Universal Year in numerology. Since 8 is the number of abundance and material rewards, many people felt that money would fall from the sky and opportunities would appear magically. And for many, this is true. What many weren’t expecting was all the EMOTIONS that needed to be processed too.

If you want a life of passion, prosperity, and abundance, you have to live fully from your heart. You can’t think your way to fulfilling your purpose. You must be guided, by your most powerful resource you have – your intuition. Your heart always knows your path to your destiny, yet your mind gets in the way. Your heart wants you to express all of yourself, in your authenticity, because the only way you will be loved and accepted by others, is if you love yourself – completely.

Love Yourself Completely

If you want to truly experience the love, abundance and passion this amazing 8-8-8 gateway is availing to you, you MUST have the courage to be yourself. Whatever your goals and ambitions are, they are meaningless without the energy of love. When you are truly living the life you are meant to live, accepting all of yourself – no matter how unspiritual or not “nice” you think you are, give yourself permission to FEEL your FEELINGS and love every ounce of you. Allow yourself to be your unique, kooky, quirky self no matter how you feel others will perceive you. And then – you will open yourself up to the amazing possibilities the Universe has to offer. YOU are the Royal Star of the Lion.

Live it up. Love with an open heart. ROAR!

Dear Kari: I love reading your guidance, but today I disagree with you in calling Cecil´s killer a coward. Just as brave as Cecil was by volunteering to be killed and shock the world with it, this man was also very brave by taking the task, the shame and the risk of killing him. Love and millions of blessings. Leonardo.
