If you were born into this numbers vibration, you’re on a personal journey to grow into your power and become an authority in the world. Your highest path will ask you to perfect your relationship with money and learn how to use your wealth to serve the world.

Life Path Number 8 – Highest Path

In Numerology, the Number 8 symbolizes the infinite flow and balance of energy and power.


As a person, you thrive when you’re climbing the ladder to success, achieving your goals and of course, earning money in return.  You have ambition, you’re determined, hard-working, strategic and seem to have an innate knowledge of how to “play the game”.

This Life Path Number is destined to rise to the top, but it isn’t always as easy as it looks. You’ll certainly go through your fair share of struggle and strife, but the key, Number 8, is to understand that rubbing up against challenge is precisely how you’ll get the skills and strength you need to win!

You’re naturally influential

You have incredible self-discipline and manage to maintain goal-oriented even when the going gets tough. Because you’re so often way out in front, people watch and learn when you’re around, whether you know it or not. You’re a stand out example to so many in life, but because of this, any weaknesses or chinks in your armor are also there, for all to see.

So it’s extra important for you to play the game fairly.

Follow the rules, or you’ll get caught out – this is a number of quick karmic return! So whether it’s driving 5 mph over the speed limit, or being sneaky with your tax return, don’t risk it, Number 8!

Many think that within Numerology, the Number 8 is the road to riches, but in truth, it’s a lesson in flow and balance. You will rise but you will fall, many times over. The real skill of the number 8 is climbing back up and starting again. This is something you’ll grow used to, and is where you’ll start to find real meaning in life – if you can see these times through a spiritual lens. In fact, Number 8, you have the ability to bounce back faster and higher than all the other numbers!

Ultimately, your Life Path Number is all about mastery

But that doesn’t just mean manifesting money and power – something you’re exceptionally good at – it means using that money and power wisely and for the good of all. Because it’s highly likely you’ll find yourself in positions of leadership, you’ll have ample opportunity to flex these muscles of command and authority, and accumulate a wealth of experience in top positions. Try to develop your leadership skills, and do so using a strong moral compass and you have the potential to radically change the world for the better.

Is that something you’re willing to do?


Life Path Number 8 Shadows

The Life Path 8 is a path of ups and downs.

You must be careful not to feel the ‘downs’ too deeply, or let yourself wallow in them for too long, lest a victim mentality starts to take over. This is not your style but could feel like an easy role to play at times.

Your high drive for success and your innate understanding of business, commerce and how to get ahead means that you can really struggle with figures of authority. Not one to bow down and take orders, you have a fierce independent streak, which can really get you in trouble! Because of this, you must try to tame that ego, choose your battles and challenge the right people, in the right places. You know you only desire to improve things, but you may find your huge personal power becomes a destructive force, rather than one for positive change.

Whatever you think you’re capable of, Number 8, this life is meant to stretch you.

It’s not uncommon for eights to play it too small, coming up with excuses for why they’re not doing better. Sometimes low-self esteem and self-worth is a real problem – especially if you sense your huge potential but somehow can’t quite realize it. You don’t need to aim for big business!

Sometimes eights take a much more spiritual path. In these cases, significant personal work may be needed to overcome your blocks to self-worth. But this is necessary if you are to access what you truly deserve in life.

Life Path Number 8 Love, Relationships & Compatibility

Relationships with you, Number 8, can be a taste of the high life!

You’re assertive and committed and enjoy wining and dining and sharing experiences with the ones you love. But, you’re also fiercely independent and have been since birth –  so unless you can find a partner who can afford you the time and space you need to follow your own path, your relationship could end up in trouble.

If you’re serious about someone, it’s important you give enough of yourself to them.

You don’t naturally give much thought to your personal life, and most of your time and energy is spent on work and your career goals, so this may prove tricky. But not everything worth having in life can be bought and paid for in hard cash!

It’s up to you to learn this for yourself.
