The number 8 is linked to control and the management of power. The purpose of the people characterised by number 8 is that of reaching concrete goals; the number gives an ability to create projects, ambition, a desire for possession and an ability to programme and persevere; his is an energy orientated towards carrying out what can become extraordinary if it unites with the perception of the senses and with intuition.
Commonly individualised as the number of celestial balance, at historical level it is repeatedly found in the Celtic wheel and in the Buddhist wheel. It is the number of the paths of life, of the angel bearers of the celestial Throne. It is indicated as the infinite number because it represents the union between the square, the Earth, and the circle, the sky (squaring of the circle).
At psychological level, the people characterised by number 8 are resistant and they accept any test in life. They are reserved, meek, thoughtful and nostalgic, but apparently on the outside they appear serene and balanced.

They tend to acquire economic certainties, since they have a very materialistic character, therefore they do not enjoy spending easily; only after achieving this certainty can they turn their interest to more spiritual aspects of life, since they are dedicated to the esoteric, philosophic or religious disciplines.
To reach their own completeness they should avoid being vengeful and being isolated, channelling their own energies into a path of spiritual growth.
