The Achievement number is a guiding light in your Numerology Chart.

It’s a number that directs you to your potential…. yet how much do YOU now about it?

Because the vibration of the Achievement Number is hidden within other numbers (unlike the core numbers of Life PathDestiny and Soul Urge) it indicates personal challenges. In fact, you may even be operating in the shadow of your achievement number, without even realizing it.

If you’re new to this part of your numerology chart, HEAD HERE to learn more about the Achievement number and how to calculate it. Otherwise, read on for your reading of Achievement Number 8…

PinAchievement Number 8 Reading

This Numerology describes somebody who has a deep desire to take full control of their circumstances and their future.

For many of these individuals (though not all!), they try to seek happiness and find security by focussing purely on money and materialism.


Strongly associated with money, power and influence, wherever the number 8 appears in a numerology chart, it tends to symbolize the yearning of these things.

Yet the 8 can bring loss and lack as readily as riches.

For this reason, numerologists generally regard this as a number of balance. Those who walk its path (and as the number of achievement, the 8 will certainly feature highly on your path) need to learn to flow between these states.

Unlike the previous digit, the 8 doesn’t tend to see life through a spiritual lens. 

The material world may be all you know and recognize, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The problems come when you exert power over this (and other people) for your own gains. That other people have concerns beyond acquisition and status may seem so strange to you – you are likely self-directed, strong-willed and very independent. You live life on YOUR terms only!

Yet the truth is, we live in a symbiotic and cooperative relationship with each other and the Universe as a whole.

Part of the mission of this numerology is to unify the material perspective with a more spiritual outlook.

This IS a challenge for you, number 8! But in rising to our challenges, we discover what we have to offer to the world.

In seeking control over your life, you will come to understand that the only things you can control are yourself and your attitudes. If you use your means of control to act harmoniously with the world at large, there is little that can go wrong.

Your experiences with other people, and in organizations and collectives will only teach you to hone your skills. This is not one of those numbers that need much time alone – you develop by working with others. Respecting, trusting and listening to their opinions in a non-judgemental way will only help you achieve your goals in life.

Yet on the flip side, following only the material path leads to frustration, arrogance, combativeness. And this will only chase away prosperity. Following only a spirit-based path does the same thing.

Your key to achieving real success lies in being practical about building an emotional support system based on compassion, empathy, mutual benefits, and sharing; making these values part of your bottom line will create lasting abundance. If you don’t, you’ll find limitations instead.

At times, you may feel that you’re not being recognized for your true worth and go out of your way to be acknowledged by other people. You have naturally high levels of self-confidence, yet one of your major life lessons is to learn that you cannot demand recognition. It’s something you earn by living your life authentically.

It’s also vital that you include other people in your success.

Share the glory!

Share the love.

And share the rewards.

You’ll find that prosperity and abundance become part of your life when concern for the well-being of others is a strong factor in your behavior.

Anyone with an Achievement Number 8 is filled with ambition and courage, these individuals often have strong managerial skills, and natural leadership abilities too.

At some point in life, you’ll find that walking your talk strengthens your ability to make things happen, because living your truth will attract the people and the resources that you need to move forward.

But try to avoid thinking you need to do everything yourself. Your accomplishments will ultimately be greater (and more widely spread) if you allow others chance to show you their skills and participate in your success.
