Each year from late July to mid August there is a powerful line up of celestial bodies while the Sun is in Leo. This lines up Earth, the Sun, the Dog Star Sirius, and Orion's Belt to form a powerful portal that peaks on 8/8. Manifestation is favored and supported. The leadership capabilities of Leo are enhanced by the other spheres allowing us to create from the palette of our most cherished hopes and dreams. Adding to the efficacy is the influence of the numeral 8. The 8 is the infinity symbol turned 90° and stands for abundance and proper use of power. All of these elements combined assist you to be the star of your own creative life.
