Join me in ceremony from your own home

Working with ritual magick, the planets and your Sovereign Being is a powerful way to start harnessing the energies of the universe and the Divine for your own growth and transformation. It’s a way to bring more grace into your life, to accentuate certain aspects and restrict the niggly, lower freqeuncy elements that work more as interference than learnings. 


The Lion’s Gate Portal is a cosmic activation that occurs from 28 July until 12 August with it’s culmination on 8th August. It is said that the three stars of Orion’s belt align with the three pyramids at Giza, Egypt. At this time, we are able to bridge all the different dimensional planes and aspects of ourselves, through our hearts. This year it is also on the New Moon in Leo. On this sovereign journey, knowing our vast, infinite nature, multidimensional nature is key. 

Some of us are even connected to other constellations, other planets and galaxies. Our sovereign journey is to ground and embody this reality and connection within and then bring it into reality on Earth. As we connect with all that we are, we open to the limitless possibility of who we are. This is our ultimate freedom. We are here to remember our connection to the galactic core and this remembrance of our full sovereign essence.

All rituals are best when done with precise timing when the specific planetary energy is on your side. While this Lions Gate ritual is for a specific time, this is a Sun ritual and you can repeat whenever Sun is strong in the sky. Join our membership to get the perfect dates and times in advance to ritualise your sovereignty in all your life’s areas.

Sun Leo ritual


When working with ritual, you are working with an intention of what you want to bring more into your life and also release. At a New Moon, we are looking to release and seed new intentions.

A Sun ritual will enhance all things related to leadership, radiance, confidence, visibility, faith (steady nature, we trust it to rise), clarity (see it clearly), inspiration (apollo and flashes of insight),  life-giving (foundation of all life), vitality (energy), sovereignty (agency). It’s where we thrive and flourish rather than compete with others.

The Sun is the heart of our solar system. At the human level is connected to the quality of spirit. We work with the Sun when we want self transformation, and we are looking to radiate, be more visible and sovereign, since the Sun is a star that all other planets orbit around. It’s a great time to improve how you function in a position of leadership, drawing from the Sun an understanding of what it’s like to be in the centre and hold attention from others. The Sun also helps us gain the favour of those who are already in positions of authority.

When working with ritual, you need to have a clear intention of what you wish to enhance, or diminish.

It’s never a good idea to draw a specific person – keep it broad.
