Crystals for the 8-8 Lion's Gate Portal

What is the Lion's Gate Portal? 

The Lion's Gate Portal refers to a specific set of astrologic occurrences that happen each year, between approximately July 28 and August 13. August 8, or 8-8, is said to be the height of this portal, with the most potent energy.

It is said to be a time for heightened connection to the source energies related to manifestation, abundance, creation, and empowerment. It's an excellent time for tuning in to your hopes, dreams, and and desires, taking ownership of them, and then creating the foundations and structures (both energetic and practical) to bring them to reality. It’s also a great time for setting intentions.

Crystals for the Lion's Gate Portal 

If you're looking for crystals to support you during this time, here are three you can try: 


Citrine is the stone of abundance, manifestation, creativity, and strong 3rd chakra/solar plexus energy. It is warming, sunny, and uplifting. Citrine is also a variety of quartz - this time, one that reflects the yellow to yellow-orange light spectrum.

Said to be "the merchant's stone" citrine is excellent for money manifesting, as well as clearing out any old energy keeping you stuck in lack.


Also called Fool's Gold (for its appearance and shiny, golden similarities to the precious metal), pyrite is said to bring good luck and wealth. Sparkling pyrite can help to spark creativity, aid in manifestation practices, boost self confidence and willpower, and nourish your solar plexus chakra. Pyrite is also known as a stone of protection and can deflect negative energy.

Use it to find creative ways to bring your dreams to life, keep your confidence high, and your mind on the abundance all around you.

Clear Quartz 

Primarily, clear quartz is used as an amplifier – it can amplify the properties of other stones. Interestingly, this is also one of its uses in everyday life: as a way to move energy from one place to another, such as with electronics. Quartz is also easily programmable: When you set your intentions for the stone, it can help to amplify that energy, whether it be for abundance, love, or peace.

Use it to set your intentions, amplify your desires, and clarify your thoughts.
