Number 8

Symbolism

Number 8 symbolizes tangible forces, counterbalancing actions, in a word regulatory justice. Considering that its attributes relate to those of Saturn, the taskmaster of the Zodiac, it goes without saying that it’s almost impossible to escape its influence. Therefore, when numerologists encounter this number in a numerology chart, they take extra caution to avoid interpretation mishaps because it tends to interfere with any previous assumption regarding the native’s numerical life pattern. Those who are ruled by the number 8 are extremely resourceful, ambitious, practical and down-to-earth. They are said to be numerology’s born leaders, social climbers and high-achievers. On the other hand, the negative 8s may seem stubborn, loud, impulsive or dictatorial.
