Your Leo New Moon & Lion's Gate Ritual
Now's the time to ask for what you deserve.
Buckle up, friends, because this New Moon is bringing you all of the magical energy.
On Sunday, we’ll be met with the Leo New Moon and the Lion’s Gate Portal for a cosmic dance of abundance, manifestation and love.
The Leo New Moon is perfect for any intentions dealing with creativity, fame, recognition, romance, self-love, the inner child and confidence. Astrologer Danielle Ayoka used to call it the Build-a-Bae New Moon, and let me tell you—it works.
Additionally, we have the Lion’s Gate Portal, which hits its peak every year on 8/8. Astrologically, this occurs when the Earth and the Sirius star system are aligned in the sign of Leo.
As if that wasn’t mystical enough, the number 8 in numerology often corresponds with wealth and abundance. Visually, an "8" is also literally an infinity symbol turned upright, which represents its unlimited potential.
All that to say—this is one ritual you don’t want to miss.
These potent energies are giving you the perfect platform to declare what you’re manifesting. You’ve done the work, now ask for what you deserve.
Now, for those of you who’ve done these New Moon rituals, you know what to do. If you haven’t, here’s the necessary information you need to move forward.
Unlike the full moon ritual, where you set intentions on what you want to release and burn your list, new moon rituals are what you want to manifest and bring in. There will be no burning.
What you will need is a completely unused notebook (if you already have a New Moon journal, you’ll use that same one for this ritual). There cannot be any pages used or torn out. This will become your new moon journal and can only be used for new moon intentions. Once you’ve decided which new notebook you’ll dedicate to your new moon intentions, you’ll consecrate, or pray, over the journal.
Put your right hand over the journal, and say to your higher self, "I dedicate this journal to manifesting my new moon intentions." Boom. Done. You only need to do this once. Again, it’s super important that you don’t use this notebook for anything else!
Now, remember that when you write your intentions, you don’t want to use phrases like “I will,” “I want,” “I wish,” etc. as that will only manifest the longing for whatever you put down. Make definitive statements when phrasing your intentions: "I am," "I have," "I manifest," "I transform," "I create," "I make," "I attract."
The Leo New Moon is on Sunday, so you can do your ritual anytime between Thursday and next Wednesday.
You can write whatever intentions you’d like, but here are some optional intentions you can use that align with the Leo New Moon energy (c/o @mysticxlipstick). Because of the potent energy, there are intentions for those seeking a partner, those in a relationship and self-love.
Reminders: You cannot make someone love you (harsh truth). The relationship intentions will only work if your partner is open to change. Secondly, only write the intentions that resonate with you, and feel free to create your own. Go big. You deserve it.

Once you’re done writing your intentions, seal it with the following clause: "I give thanks to the Universe for all of these intentions fully manifesting in perfect alignment with my highest good. So it is."
Now, put your notebook away until next month’s new moon, and trust that the intentions you’ve written down are already being manifested for the highest good of all involved.
Some important announcements!
Tonight is my second Reiki Experience on Zoom. We’ll be scanning your timeline in this life to find the most important experience that needs healing to improve the person’s health and well-being. This could be a physical injury, or it could be an emotional or psychological trauma. The Reiki energy will then work with the aspects of the personality and the energies involved to heal the issue.
On Saturday night, I’ll be doing an IG Live reading for the Leo New Moon on my personal IG page (@brunanessif) to see what the cards have to say. Join me at 6 pm PST!
Last, but certainly not least, two powerful healers and I are teaming up to do a community offering for LA people on Sunday for the Lion’s Gate Portal. This will be a donation-based event for whoever feels called to join us. See details below!
See you soon, manifestors! And as always, take care of yourselves.
