Let’s look at the power behind this great number, Ruled by Saturn the planet that expects great things from you and will reward with the same 10 fold, the 8 relates to the cycles of time, as does Saturn known as Father time. The Greeks called it the number of justice because of its equal divisions of equally even numbers;(4 and 4), or (2 and 2, 2 and 2) this represents the solid and complete.
In the Christian symbolism it stands for afterlife, it is also known as the number of regeneration and of the Gods who accompanied Thoth. The number 8 believed to represent the joining of the two spheres of Heaven and Earth, this great number also has a dual nature as demonstrated by the one circle on top of each other, standing for the meaning of “what is above is equal to what is below” This number stands for justice and the punishment that is assigned to the crime. So let’s look at this in reference to the week ahead, how can we use the number 8 in our daily life and ask the question are we participating in the right action or are we going against our own true nature? Meditate on this most powerful number and envision the symbol of infinity, bring this power into your own reality and become the person you are meant to be “your true self”.
