I am a person who believes that everything happens for a reason, and that it is important to live a purposeful and meaningful life. In part, I am very interested in why and how things occur as well as the meaning behind it all. For instance, the number 8 is my favorite number. Beyond the fact that it is my birthday (January 8th), I am fascinated with the fact that it resembles the infinity symbol, which is very meaningful to me as I have it tattooed. I never consciously put the two meanings together until my wandering mind started looking into the reasoning behind my infatuation. And I must say, what I learned was very valuable, gratifying and relevant.
Numerology; the branch of knowledge that deals with the occult significance of numbers. The number 8 is the number of karma, and carries with it the Universal Laws of Truth, 'cause and effect'. What goes around comes around, as in a never ending loop. Much like the figure 8 in comparison to the infinity symbol, which symbolizes eternity, empowerment, and everlasting love. The infinity symbol represents limitless, boundlessness, and never ending possibilities. The numerical vibrations of the number 8 expresses the richness in life, in nature, and in all our abilities and possibilities.
The character of the number 8 has a powerful drive to succeed, the ability to rise above aversions and adversity, good decision making, intensively active, seizes opportunity, takes control, wants security, and achieves success. The purpose of 8 is to use their commanding power and strength to help others, which in turn reflects their karma. The challenge of the number 8 is to balance personal against professional, and to practice tolerance and patience. These are all characteristics of myself. Which is intriguing given that a simple symbol can have so much underlying meaning.
With my 25th birthday approaching, I am starting a new chapter and am more inquisitive about life after a quarter century. In my quest to find myself, I am open, honest and excited to share this information with you! I understand that many may not be into astrology and numerology like myself. However, I do encourage you to find the meaning behind your favorite number (HERE). You'll be surprised how much you will find out about yourself!
