The number 8 is one fluid motion. It has no real beginning and no real end, the line just keeps going and going and going. The number 8 is also the infinity symbol upright. You see it on the Tarot cards The Magician and Strength, so there is a very karmic connection to the number 8.

For some zodiac signs and life path numbers, for years to come. It′s important not to dismiss events this month. What goes around, is coming around, and going around again.

What Life Path 8 Means, For You

The qualities of a life path 8 are a juxtaposition of each other. Simply put, the shadow and dark sides have a tendency to balance each other out, while being completely opposite each other. On the one side, life path 8 is very successful, so much so that some would say 8 is ruthless, greedy, and willing to obtain material goods at almost any cost to their fellow man.

That′s how they are often perceived, but this is not necessarily the truth. They ARE hungry for success and wealth and abundance. This is a fact, but they are not always willing to take it from others or obtain it at any cost. The flip side to life path 8 is they are actually as spiritual as they are materialistic. This is the beautiful karmic balance of life path 8.ARE hungry for success and wealth and abundance. This is a fact, but they are not always willing to take it from others or obtain it at any cost. The flip side to life path 8 is they are actually as spiritual as they are materialistic. This is the beautiful karmic balance of life path 8.

Life path 8s are the human essence of the law of attraction. They reap what they sow, and they know it, and this is why they are often so successful. They sow a lot, and they work hard to sow good oats. As such you can look at the number 8 as the great karmic equalizer.

What this means for you is that you can use 8 energy, right now, in the 8th month of the year to begin sowing some wild oats for yourself, or some successful oats for yourself! We ALL want success, and there′s nothing wrong with wanting material things. It′s how you go about it that makes all the difference in the world.

If you obtain material things through honest means, that is the definition of true success, and true material abundance. These are blessings! They are nothing to feel bad over. A life path 8 when successful is often seen as materialistic or ruthless, because other life path numbers who aren′t working so hard might be a little jealous.

There′s Enough Abundance for Everyone

Don′t give up on life path 8s, or the notion of success, because it seems too difficult to obtain for yourself. You′re allowed to want success. In fact, you are even encouraged to want it! It′s not selfish or greedy unless you are stealing it, gutting someone to get it, ripping people off, or not pursuing it honestly.

If you do that, you can bet that what goes around, is absolutely coming around. If you see an 8 that is acting this way, take comfort in the fact that the universe will be serving them a dish to deal with this at some point.

The definition of abundance is just that, abundance. That means, it will never run out in this universe. You can either create it for yourself, or have it given to you. When you put out the intention to pursue it, and to have it in your life honestly, the universe says, “Your wish is my command.” You need to do it honestly in order for it to happen, and this is what karma is all about.

It takes actionable effort. You can′t just wish for the lottery to strike or a big bag of money to arrive at your door. This is never going to happen. This is not how the number 8 operates. You have to work hard to succeed. It′s a pretty simple formula. Most 8s do that by doing what they love.

I guarantee you if there′s something you are passionate about that you could make money from it. Not sure what that is? Make a list of the things that excite you. Then Google the thing you are most passionate about with the word “jobs” beside it. One day I Googled “Writing Jobs” for example, and here I am telling you about this today.

What are you passionate about? I guarantee you there′s a job out there for that. Like to crochet? Start making pot holders and then look for a place to sell them, or, just sell them online. Like to talk to people? There′s a sales job for that somewhere! You get the picture. There is no “objection” to this argument that will qualify.

What you are good at what you love to do, you CAN create abundance with it.

Concluding thoughts…

The lines in the number 8 do not begin, and they do not end. They are in a continuous flow. Life path 8s are often very successful in their own right. That is because they understand the karmic balance of their life path. What they reap, they will sow, and what goes around, is going to come around, again, and again and again.

You can do it too. It doesn′t matter what your zodiac sign is, or what your life path number is, and there is no month more powerful to do that in than the 8th month of the year. What success are you inspired to pursue in this intense 8th month of the year?
