Are you one of those people that are fascinated by the number 8? You may have it on a necklace turned sideways representing the infinity symbol, or have it tattooed on your body as a proclamation of abundance and success. It is the only number aside from zero that has a completely connected figure. 8 reminds us of our connection to prosperity and the ever-evolving flow of infinity, a key element of manifestation. So if you find yourself drawn to the number 8, or blessed with it as part of your numerology code, it is a sign of your birthright to abundance.

What is numerology?

Numbers have been a universal language for civilizations since the beginning of time. Numbers are the basis for creating structure and a conscious awareness of cycles. They also help chart your life path. That’s right, you can discover your destiny, purpose, and personality all from the day you were born.

Any number variation can be reduced to a single digit number, and from there, deciphered into various meanings. In addition, we also have master numbers such as 11, 22, and 33. Understanding the deeper meaning of numbers can help us illuminate the fabric of the universe and see the interconnectedness within it.

The meaning of the number 8 in numerology

The number 8 represents finding a balance between the spiritual world and the material one. Those who are associated with the number 8 are highly focused and intelligent. This makes them great teachers and professors, and they're also often successful in business and the financial sector. Number 8 is associated with the infinity symbol, representing continuous balance and karmic relief: Everything serves a purpose in the greater spiritual meaning of life.

Life path number 8

In numerology, your life path number represents the tendencies and characteristics that you’re born with. Becoming aware of yours can help you align more with your purpose, creating deeper meaning in everyday living.

Now, let’s figure out the fundamentals to calculating your life path number. You are going to add the single digits from your birth month, date, and year until you reduce it to a single number. It’s important to include the millennium, century, decade, and year of your birth. It’s also noteworthy to mention that we reduce your number to a single digit, with the exception of master numbers. For example, if you were born July 12, 1996, you’d add 0+7+1+2+1+9+9+6=35, which reduces to 3+5=8 for a life path number 8. If you tried this with your birth date and got the number 8, let me tell you what it means.

From the time of their birth, number 8’s listen to knowledge, power, and authority. They will grow to need to have power themselves. They can be academic, logically-minded, dedicated, hardworking, and very successful in life. They make great professors, engineers, businesspeople, lawyers, and leaders. Wherever success and drive is needed, you can find a number 8.

Heart’s desire number 8

Your heart’s desire number is also referred to as the soul urge number, and it's calculated by the vowels in your full name at birth and reflects your goals and passions. Your heart's desire number is the most intimate and introspective part of yourself. In order to calculate it, you need to find the vowels in your name and then add up the numbers they’re associated with until you get a single digit or master number. A is 1, E is 5, I is 9, O is 6 and U is 3.

People with heart's desire number 8 are drawn to knowledge that can make a difference, and power that makes them financially successful. Their inner contentment with themselves is reflected in their material world when it comes to control, power, money and success. The ultimate sense of power is one that lasts beyond your lifetime, and because of this, they want to leave a legacy for their name and their family. Spiritually, heart's desire number 8 indicates an inner authority and empowerment.

Destiny number 8

Your destiny number is also called your expression or name number. It can be calculated by adding up the numerical digits associated with each letter in your full name and reducing them until you reach a single digit or master number. Below is a chart for the codes associated with each letter:

In fulfillment of this path, they have strong characteristics of self-confidence, willpower, determination, and sometimes even competitiveness. They aren’t afraid of the work that must be put in to create the financial success that they desire. In the end, they’re going to get that bag.
