Symbolic Meaning of Number Eight

Written by avenefica on August 31st, 2007

Some people are naturally attuned and sensitive to certain number frequencies.  

Those who vibrate with certain numeric frequencies will have certain number sequences show up in their lives very often -       sometimes these numbers only stay with them for a phase – sometimes they stick for life.

I’ve had so many readers tell me they continually see the number eight.  So many in fact, that I’ve decided to publish this entry on the symbolic meaning of the number eight.

Quick Symbolism of Number Eight:

  • Opportunity
  • Observation
  • Balance
  • Intention
  • Abundance
  • Repetition
  • Continuation
  • Infinity
  • Prosperity

The symbolism backing number Eight deals largely with business, success, and wealth. This is primarily due to the fact that Eight represents continuation, repetition, and cycles. Such elements are seen in arenas where success is obtained simply because of dogged determination and repetition by the practitioner. Also, matters of business and wealth largely depend on cycles to fulfill their manifestation. It’s like the snowball analogy: As it continues to roll, in gets bigger and bigger with each revolution.

Symbolic meaning of the number Eight also deals with terrestrial and celestial energies that are in constant circulation from top to bottom and regenerate themselves.  Or, better said, the eight represents primordial & prime energies – male/female, life/death, dark/light, etc.  This makes it an ultimate balance symbol (think yin & yang).  So where there is continuation, there is also evolution in all areas of energy – the either is an incredibly intense number as it embodies the concept of connectivity between polar opposites of energy.

The ancient Myanmar Monks understood this concept and their entire branch of astrology is based on the mystical number eight.  Read more about Mahabote, Myanmar (Burmese) astrology and zodiac meanings here.
