Historical Significance of Number 8
Historically speaking, 8 is a significant number and appears in many mythological facets of history. There were 8 people on Noah’s ark, and ancient Romans have a tradition where the eighth day after a child is born is significant. The number 8 on its side is also the sign of infinity.
In numerology, the number 8 is often associated with success as well. When you are able to harness the number 8, you are able to develop goals and the action plan associated with them in order to succeed. You also can harness this infinity number to work on your karma, and reap your own karmic rewards.
In Tarot, the number is linked to the Strength card as a Major Arcana, and this represents a turning point. Here we see an angel taming a lion, and the message from this is that we need to tame some of our impulsive urges and stick to the task at hand. Integrity wins. Loyalty wins.
These themes of integrity and loyalty are the themes of the number 8 that have carried throughout history.
Other 8 cards in the Minor Arcana division of the Tarot show the same concept, but are more hard-working cards that are not necessarily turning points in your life. The 8 of Pentacles, for example, shows a man at his craftsman table piling up the pentacles. He is not distracted and just focuses on his work.
As we think about the number 8 and August, these are the themes we want to bring into this month to succeed:
Hard work, loyalty, integrity, and focus on the task at hand.
Number 8 & August
The number 8 is associated with success and careers in numerology, but it is so much more than that. It is about reaping karmic rewards so that you can find that personal transformation you need to succeed. In astrology, the eighth house is the house of transformations and rebirth. If you ever see eighth house activity in your Daily Horoscopes, you are undergoing some powerful transformations in your life, and this often is connected to shared resources such as mortgages, life insurance, and things of this nature.
But you still may just be working towards success. The month of August is not always a lazy one for Summer days. In August, we can start to see the end of Summer arriving, and are already thinking about the Fall and how to push forward on a new level.
That may be a new year of college, a new year at school, a new promotion, or just your everyday life that you want to improve.
Karma is everything now. That which you sow is what you shall reap. It’s time to take those heart’s desires and passions and turn them into a concrete success.

How to Channel Number 8 in August
When it comes to using the numerology vibrations of the number 8 in the eighth month of the year, think of your success plan. The number 8 is connected to wealth and success, but this is wealth and success that comes from good karma.
Stealing, for example, is not a good idea now (or ever, but especially not now). You may get wealthy, but you aren’t vibrating on number 8 level. You have to do what the 8 of Pentacles does, and sit down at your table and get to work.
You also need to be assertive. Get out that lion roar if you need to, but even moreso, you need to channel the gentility of the Strength card angel, who is strong enough to tame a lion, but soft enough to still give off that ethereal presence.
Don’t be afraid to make decisions this month. Too often we lose opportunities when we are wishy-washy. Make decisions. Take control. Tame the lion.
At the same time, show off that softer side of yours. Lead with a soft voice but a firm one. A strong one. It’s all about balance and harmony now.
You can make a big decision and win in a situation for example, by simply being the quiet one.
Those traits embody the spirit of number 8 perfectly. When you are strong and disciplined but gentile and angelic, you find that balance between the physical world and the spiritual world. And that, my friends, is the magic of number 8.
You can tap into that this August too! Calculate your personality number now!
