Numerology Insights: the Magic of the Number 8

Is the number 8 appearing to you in dreams or your waking life? Or maybe you’re navigating an eight life path or an eight month in numerology. Let’s look into the magic eight-ball to understand the meaning of eight.

The Meaning of 8

In Numerology, the number 8 represents the flow of energy. This can be in the form of mastery, money, status, influence or success – the language of our modern world.

This larger than life energy gives, gives and gives some more from the limitless well of abundance in the Universe. Of course, eight receives just as much as it gives. Like the cosmic karma police, the number 8 makes sure you reap what you’ve sown.

As the ancient Kybalion states, “Every cause has its effect and every effect has its cause.” In other words, nothing happens by coincidence. The number 8 reminds us that we can be the cause, just as much as the effect. Use your inner strength and influence to quietly move the chess pieces of your life.

On the path to mastery and material abundance, the number 8 also reminds us to cultivate balance. When you’re racing to the finish line, despite cosmic signs urging you to slow down, you risk burning that creative spark. Find a balance between yang and yin energies, extroversion and introversion, work and play, and so on.

But the eight is so much more than material wealth! These lessons of the number 8 also apply to manifesting emotional and spiritual abundance. After all, money can’t buy happiness.

Lastly, just as quickly as the eight earns great abundance, it loses it too. But it’s all for the higher good. Sometimes we need to burn the fields to make space for new growth.
