SARA COUGHLIN: “Uranus Has Another Trick Up Its Sleeve And Yes — That Trick Is A Retrograde”

Take a deep breath, stargazers. Now that August has arrived, we’re in the home stretch of summer 2018, aka the summer of retrogrades.

Before we’re out of the woods, however, Uranus would like to join the fun. The planet of sudden change, revolution, and upheaval begins its annual retrograde on Tuesday, August 7.

This isn’t Uranus’ first attempt to stir the pot this year. Back in May, this planet moved into Taurus which, as astrologer Kimberly Peta Dewhirst told Refinery29 at the time, kicked off a new astrological era of change, particularly around how we use money and care for the Earth.

Where that process will take place over the next seven years, Uranus’ retrograde only lasts five months — and, while Uranus in Taurus is expected to exert changes on an external, global scale, Uranus retrograde will incite changes within us.

Retrogrades have a way of urging us to focus on our inner lives. Think about how Mars retrograde tests our tempers or Jupiter retrograde interrogates our approach to learning.

Viewed from this angle, planetary retrogrades are just regularly scheduled lessons we have to learn in order to make personal progress. Uranus retrogrades are no exception. Specifically, they’re thought to show us how we might adapt to the ever-shifting world around us — if we let them, that is.

As astrologer Jamie King writes, these periods tend to arrive in time to help us either adjust our outlook to fit a recent development or prepare for future growth. In case you haven’t been reading your horoscope, this summer’s eclipse season (two occurred last month and there’s one more to come on August 11) is likely to set off plenty of changes in our lives, professional andpersonal. So, yes, we’d consider this year’s Uranus retrograde to be extremely well-timed.

That said, you probably won’t feel this retrograde’s influence in the same way that you’re feeling, say, the current Mercury retrograde. Uranus’ distance from Earth makes its effects on our personal lives pretty subtle, if not downright sneaky.

You might find yourself coming around on a plan you initially resisted or you might learn something new that leads you to view a change at work in a whole new light. These shifts in your mindset will occur gradually and may seem minor at first, but they’re likely to lead to bigger, even major, progress.

For the record, when we say “progress,” we simply mean forward movement — Uranus likes to affect great change, but it’s less concerned with who benefits from it. With luck, you’ll receive the cues of this retrograde and learn to roll with the good and the bad that comes your way in the next five months.

BIANCA ZO: “Returning To The Heart Of The Lions Gate”

Why the Lions Gate is actually taking place on/around the 22/23 August, and the importance of going outside and connecting directly with the Stars.

 

What is the Lions Gate?

I have seen various information being shared about the Lions Gate, what it is and when it is. Most sharers connect it to the 8/8 August Gateway and associate it with the Egyptian Culture and their celebration of a particular significant cosmic alignment — during Sirius’s helical rising (when the Star System rises close to the Sun/Horizon in the East), the Sun is in Leo, and there is an alignment with Sirius and Orion’s Belt. This alignment connects with and activates the Giza pyramid stellar geometries and alignments, as well as the Sphinx which gazes due East to watch Sirius and Orion rise in the early Hours of the morning and thereafter witnesses the Sun Rise in Leo.

It is proposed by some researchers of the Egyptian Temples that the Sphinx was actually built during the Golden Age of Leo approximately 13000 years ago (10 000 BC), This was when the Sun rose in Leo during the vernal (Spring) Equinox, initiating a Golden Age on Earth, which involved the end of an Ice-Age and the rise of the advanced civilization that built the Sphinx in Egypt. Most sharers associate the name of the Lions Gate with the Sun-Leo alignment which amplifies the Star Lion/Leo Constellation Frequency bandwidth’s transmission into Earth due to Leo being ‘ruled’ by/strongly connected to the Sun. It would make sense that this culture would celebrate this alignment which marked the beginning of their Golden Age and the rise of their civilization each year. Many of the Egyptian Deities associated with First Time and Creation are leonine beings, and the ancient tradition of lion shamanism/priests in the Egyptian and African cultures also eludes to the spiritual significance of the leonine beings and the consciousness/sacred knowledge that they hold/carry and transmit.

What is the Lions Gate Really?

Leading into the Lions Gate, I was given a book to read called “the Mystery of the White Lions” by Linda Tucker. I have had a strong connection to these beings my whole spiritual journey and so was very excited to learn more about their origins and the significance of their physical return on Earth for Humanity. This books documents the birthing and return of the White Lions to the Timbavati region of South Africa around 400 years ago, and the increasing activation of this ‘dormant’ DNA strand within the Lions from this region, leading to a growing number of White Lions being born and bred around the world and especially in South Africa. It also speaks about the Lions connection to the Sun and the Stars.

It is understood by all indigenous cultures around the world that life on Earth originated in the Stars. In the book, Credo Mutwa – high Sunasi and keeper of the Sacred African Traditional Knowledge — shares how his people understand that all beings and Animals on Earth have their origins in the Stars, and that the constellations — that have been long associated with Animals by all Star Watching Nations on Earth — are directly connected to their Animal counterparts on Earth. One can understand this through the perspective of seeing all of life as universal energy expressing itself in different tones, patterns and forms. These Stars hold and transmit specific energies/frequencies and consciousness, which is projected into/transmitted into the Earth. These constellations form patterns of Energy which is made manifest in the Earths fertile womb as the Earthly/Material reflection and expression of that same energetic pattern/geometry/expression/consciousness. The study of the energy and consciousness of the stars and the constellations is known as Astrology in modern times.

The Leo Constellation holds the Star Energy of the Elder Lion (Mbube Edingile in the African Tradition) — one of visionary leadership, a courageous strong heart, creative, loving, generous, strong-willed, confident and independent. These energies held by this constellation when directly projected and manifested into the Earth take the form of the Lion — the pure reflection/material manifestation of this Star Constellations Energy.

The Lion is also strongly associated with the Sun, and Credo Refers to the White Lions as the Children of the Sun God, Star Beasts who hold and transmit the Solar Logos/Vibration/Laws/Consciousness on Earth. Not just of Solaris — the Morning Star — but of the Great Central Sun — the Source of all Light and Life in this Universe. In many religious texts and native cultures Lions are regarded as protectors and keepers of sacred knowledge, as creators/guardians of the Earth and humanity, and as first children/creations of God. Jesus is referred to as the Lion of Judah, and Lions represent the King/Ruler/Keeper of Divine Balance and Harmony within all the kingdoms due to their position at the apex of the pyramid of life — they are the ultimate ‘predator’ and therefore rule the balance within the whole system. We have this Lion Gene/Energy/Consciousness within us — both the Lion’s position as the apex ‘predator’, and ability — and therefore responsibility — to lead and maintain balance in accordance with the Divine Laws of Nature; as well as their Lion-Heart and visionary creative capacity/power.

During the Lions Gate, this Divine Leonine Frequency is Amplified by the cosmic alignments which activate the Stargate through which the leonine frequencies are transmitted into Earth. According to Credo and the Great African Tradition – The Three Main Stars through which the Lion Frequency enters into Earth are Sirius (Star A), The middle Star in Orion’s Belt (Mbube — ‘Lion of the Dark’), and Regulus — the Heart Star of Leo. Credo describes how Sirius represents the ‘Eye’ of the Sky Lion, Mbube is the ‘soul’ of the Sky Lion and Regulus is the ‘heart’ of the Sky Lion. The Lions Gate is the ’time’ when the Sun aligns with (moves directly in line with/in front of) the Star Regulus in Leo, activating the Lions Heart Star Frequencies, and connecting and aligning with Sirius and Orion’s Belt in the East to activate the triangular cosmic creation gateway through which the Divine Leonine Energies and Consciousness entered into and continues to stream into Earth. Through this Alignment this divine star lion energy is amplified on Earth and our own dormant white lion DNA/Gene Key/consciousness/nature is activated within us once more, as we are all reborn as Christed Children of Sun and the Supreme One. This Lions Gate reminds us of our nature as divine children of God and as visionary creative beings who have the strength and courage, through our Lion Heart, to lead Humanity once more into a Golden Age.

When does the Lions Gate Actually Take Place?

Due to the shifting positions of the Zodiacs in the Sky and the procession of the Equinoxes, the Vernal Equinox sun rise is now taking place in between Pisces and Aquarius in the Northern hemisphere. This is where the notion of moving into the Age of Aquarius comes from. Here in the Southern Hemisphere, as the White Lions are returning to Earth, we are moving into the Age of Leo, offering a powerful reflection of the present rebirthing of the Golden Age, as the same energy that heralded in the rise of the advanced civilization in Egypt after the Ice Age and the construction of the Sphinx and Giza Temples in Northern Hemisphere, expresses itself in the South. This also means that the time and date of the Lions Gate has shifted over the ages — which explains the distortion around the exact dates for this cosmic alignment and why on the 8/8 which is supposedly the Lions Gate – the Sun is actually not even in the Leo Constellation but is positioned in between Leo and Cancer in the Sky.

What a beautiful reminder for everyone to please get outside and connect directly to the Stars! We have become so detached to what is actually taking place within and around us, and so deeply dependent on inherited traditions, systems and beliefs from certain lineages and ‘older’ cultures that we have forgotten our own personal capacity to connect with, communicate with and draw wisdom directly from the Source, one another, our surroundings, the Earth and the Stars. It is essential that we connect to what is actually presenting in our Now Reality, and allow ourselves to draw in this New Now Information, rather then through fear or a sense of lack within ourselves choosing to operate from and depend on an out dated/no longer relevant system of understanding. We can always benefit from observing and learning from what has been before, but our sacred gift and responsibility is to apply this wisdom in the now so that we can grow with it, evolve with it and bring in new/now understandings/perspectives.

I have used an awesome technology and phone app called Sky Map to take a virtual picture of the actual positions of the stars and cosmic planetary bodies at specific times and dates this Month. In the images attached you will see what will actually be happening in the Sky around the 8th of August, as well as the 22nd/23rd, showing how and when the Lions Gate Cosmic Alignment will actually be presenting itself.

The actual Lions Gate Alignment of the Sun with Regulus, Sirius and Orion takes place around the 22nd/23rd of August — which explains the powerful gateway energies that many have been feeling coming in towards the end of the month of August. Sandra Walter described it as feeling like we will be walking through a wall of light — and that is exactly what this Lions Gate is — a powerful stellar gateway and transmission of pure white gold energy straight from the Central Sun, toned through the Star Leonine Consciousness and Geometries of Creation. Credo says that in the Great African Tradition it is understood that when the Sun aligns with Regulus a king/kingdom dies and a new one is born. I feel personally that this years Lions Gate is marking the end of a significant cycle within our awakening on Earth as Divine Huemans, and will be initiating us — through it’s stellar frequency download/transmission — into a next level expansion and evolution as divine children, visionaries, leaders and co-creators of the Golden Age/Eden on Earth.

As we come together to honor this sacred gateway and initiation, I invite you to use this as an opportunity to go outside and connect directly with the Stars, The Earth and the Plant, Elemental and Animal Kingdom. Open up your heart to hear their story and message/guidance for you and humanity. Connect with your own inner Lion being and ask yourself how you can connect with and step more fully into your divine purpose and presence/expression in this Life, how you can open further to allow your own lion-heart to roar more loudly and guide you on your journey, and how you can nurture and create the sacred space for your own divine creativity and hearts visions to flow and manifest in your life and community.

This is our time to shine, to explore and share the truth, beauty, wisdom, strength and creativity of our radiant united heart.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Horoscope For Every Star Sign For August 2018”

Ascension Avatar note: The 13-sign zodiac should be the astrology standard (it was no shock to learn in 2014 I’m a Pisces, not an Aries)! Check your natal sign in the 13-sign chart! 🐬

It is already the eighth month of the year, and yeah, it cannot be denied that it almost feels crazy. The year has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride, be it politics, society, arts of the stars, for that matter.

The month of July alone saw an insane amount of astral movement, starting from a complete lunar eclipse, a Chiron Retrograde and so on. Mercury is in retrograde already and will remain the same for the major part of August as well. Without further delay, let us get to the horoscopes.

Aries:

It will be a good time for change of any kind. Aries generally feel effects of solar eclipses more than the other signs and the one lined up for August will definitely have an effect, although subtle and positive. It will help you make changes in your life that you have been wanting for a long time. It is a month laden with good outcomes, so make the most of it.

Taurus:

Sugar coating anything never leads to any positive results so here is what it is: the month of August will not be cakewalk. You will face exhaustion of all kinds so make it a point to take care of yourself. You have to be the person to look after yourself. The month will not be all exhaustion and even if it is, you will have a ray of sunshine, which is people who love you coming through for you and making you feel special and energised. Let people take care of you as well because you do have friends and family who genuinely love and care for you.

Gemini:

It is going to be a good month. No major changes should happen but that does not mean that there is nothing you have to look forward to this month. You will have the opportunity to re-centre and find a goal that is both worthwhile and lucrative. You are going to be enjoying some good times.

Cancer:

2018 as a whole is the year of your career but August will be a test — a test of your tenacity. We all know that fortune favours the bold so do not be afraid of doing things that you have not done before because that will have an immense effect on your career hereafter. You may be pushed to your limits but you have to have faith and keep at it because nothing is impossible and especially nothing for you. You will reap good results if you put in the hard work and have perseverance.

Leo:

Leo, it is going to be an important month. August will bring to you the opportunity and time to get rid of everything that is holding you back or is not good for you. This is an extremely internalised process, which is why while you will be feeling the emotional brunt of it, others will see you living your best life. Adding to that, you might find yourself making significant changes in your career. As a whole, even though all of this sounds complicated, you will alright as none of it will be anything you cannot handle.

Virgo:

It is going to be good month with regard to money matters. You will find yourself in a good place to spend a little more than you would but while you’re doing that, make sure you find yourself some lucrative investments too. Do not forget to have fun, though.

Libra:

Get ready for some truth bombs because this month will set aside your real and your fake friends aside for once and for all. Now, this can be trying for a lot of us but it is what is good for us in the long run. Romantically, single or dating, just take things easy and have fun with whoever you are with. Love does not always have to be serious, so just have fun, laid back.

Scorpio:

There are two things that assume the center stage this month, self-care and drama. We can imagine how intrinsically these two things are linked at a very basic level.

Sagittarius:

There will be some issues with authority this month, but nothing that you cannot handle. All you need to do is just focus. You might want to go on a trip when conflict arises due to your inherent love and need for travelling but remember that you will need to approach problems head on in order to solve them.

Capricorn:

August will remind you that life does not last forever so it is the duty of every individual to enjoy life and not spend all of it working all the time. It is definitely admirable, how much you work, but you tend to forget other aspects of your life.

Aquarius:

Love is a wonderful thing but it needs to stand the test of time to last, which this month will present before you, if you are in a relationship. Professionally, it will be an excellent time for a change.

Pisces:

Find things that you love doing and things will fall into place as they must. Find time for yourself and do not be guilty about it.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology Forecast — August 2018”

The energy of August 2018 is very similar to July with more retrogrades and eclipses, however by the end of the month we are going to find ourselves inspired and ready to begin a new chapter.

August kicks off still under the influence of the Blood Moon Eclipse. During the first week of August we may still feel things rising up from the depths in order to be cleared.

Emotions may also be high during the first week of August as Mars, which is still in retrograde, continues to be very active.

Mars is our inner warrior, and can help us to achieve and overcome all obstacles, but when this energy is not in balance, or when it’s met with lots of lunar energy like it is in August, it can cause us to feel restless, agitated, and even aggressive.

If there is any anger or frustration buried underneath the surface, the first week of August may lead you to get things off your chest. Even though it can be tempting, it is best to practice patience and to really think it through if you are planning on confronting someone or taking action on something.

This energy does have an impulsive feel to it, so it’s going to be important to not leap before looking. Under all of this energy, slow and steady really does win the race.

On August 7th we have Uranus going retrograde, making a total of six planets in retrograde. This is going to continue the theme we have been dealing with since July.

Having so many planets in retrograde is a sign from the Universe that we need to stop and reflect on our past before moving forward.

Uranus going retrograde may bring up issues that were occurring around May 2018, or you may receive more insights or wisdom as to something that was stirring around this time.

On August 8th we have the opening of the Lionsgate Portal, which will be activating our soul bodies and helping us to upgrade and fine tune to higher frequencies and vibrations.

Following this we also have a Solar Eclipse on August 11th in the sign of Leo. This is the most potent and influential aspect of the month and it’s going to be lighting a new path forward.

This Solar Eclipse is going to bring new opportunities that will help us to start a new chapter in our lives. It may also bring more clarity and guidance around anything that was stirred during the Blood Moon Eclipse.

In fact, this Solar Eclipse is working in partnership to the Blood Moon Eclipse, and together it is likely these two lunar events will help to bring clarity to any issues or concerns you have been having.

This Solar Eclipse is the last Eclipse for 2018, and we are going to be working with its energy until the next Eclipse season starts in January 2019.

On August 18-19th, Mercury will turn direct after being retrograde since July 25th. This is going to help things start speeding up again, but with many other planets still in retrograde, it is only going to offer a small reprieve.

The real release with all of these retrogrades comes on August 27th when Mars finally goes direct after being retrograde since the end of June.

Mars will take a few days to rev back up, but once it does we are going to feel huge waves of action and energy. In fact, September will be a great month to push forward and we are going to be feeling far more energized and awakened.

Just a day before Mars turns direct we also have the Pisces Full Moon. This is one of the most beautiful Full Moon’s of the year and has wonderful prosperous, romantic, and creative energy that we all get to enjoy.

While most of August still has this sluggish, retrograde energy that is guiding us to go back to the past, by the end of the month things are going to take a positive turn, and we are going to start feeling more energized and inspired to take that first step in the direction that has been calling our heart.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Activation Of The Powerful 8/8 Lionsgate Portal”

Use Gateway of 8-8 to awaken the Celestial Light Codes!

Each year the Earth, the Galactic Centre (Sagittarius in 27 degrees) and Sirius, the star, are aligned. This happens on 8th August and is called the “Lion’s Gateway”. On this day, the spiritual and physical energies are directly controlled by the cosmoses.

This day is named so because Lion according to astrology is the sign of the Leo. This zodiac is linked with heart and also represents the Divine. And since Leo is associated with grandeur, an alignment like this can stir similar energies in us.

On the day of the Galactic Centre, the circulation of energy in human beings increases and the DNA awakens. Moreover, the moment at which Sirius, the star, and the Sun is in direct alignment the transmission of energy to the Earth intensifies. The scope for progression and ascension thus increases too.

This year the Lion’s Gate has arrived! What is it all about?

There is ascension of energy on the planet as the combination of intense light waves and stimulated consciousness is passing by the Spirit and the Sun. This cosmic change can lead to significant life changes for everyone. Life essentials like relationships, finances, career, health, family, travel, possessions are all under its scanner. The question in everyone’s mind is how does it affect our life? How will it alter the relationship between love and soul? These thoughts can’t be stopped at the moment and everything may seem to be in a state of flux.

However, these changes ultimately lead us to higher truth. And even though changes are not easy to adjust with, it will result in eventual happiness.

The divine message during this phase is to stay motivated. Trust your instincts, focus on love, and believe in your spiritual self. Remember that you have spiritual powers in you and these changes are for an ultimate goal of happiness and opportunities.

Meditation:

Do not forget to meditate on 8th August! On this day, your energy is highest and it is the best time to align your chakras. Concentrate on the divine light to enlighten your inner self.

At this time you can generate Love at both personal and collective level. It will help you rise above the material world and enter a spiritual realm of awareness. The mind, heart, and the spirit are thus aligned at this moment. You need to realize the path of your life and see if it is in alignment. What do you truly desire and what is the ultimate destination you wish to reach?

Accept yourself truly. Loving oneself without any fear and doubt will help you face the divine Truth. The process of this meditation is to gain ascension over material world and unite with the spiritual one. You can channelize you energy to become what you want to be. You can be the source of Infinite Love and Radiant Light.

Once you open the gates of your heart and mind to receive the positive energy and divine light. Have faith and let go of the fear within. Follow the instinctual light in front of you.
