The Soul Urge Number 8 is a powerful, prosperous and influential Core Number to have in your Numerology Chart.

Sometimes referred to as the Heart’s Desire or Soul’s Desire, in Numerology, the Soul Urge number contains powerful insight into your deepest and most eternal and spiritual motivating forces.

Whilst your Life Path Number describes the direction of your journey through life, and your Expression (or Destiny) Number reveals your gifts, talents and unique offerings to the world, the Soul Urge puts you back in touch with your essence. It can bring real clarity around your mission in life, and uncover your true life’s purpose, so if you’re looking for answers, the Soul Urge is quite often the missing piece that provides them.

The Soul Urge, quite simply, reveals the guiding force, the spiritual urge behind what your Soul came here to experience in this lifetime.

What is the Meaning of SOUL URGE Number 8?

You have a deep need to manifest the financial security that will allow you the freedom to make a difference in the world.

When you look deep into your soul, you have an underlying and pressing need to cultivate self-mastery in a profound way. Your heart’s desire is to succeed within business and organization, as well as in the realms of personal power and financial abundance, and you have the determination to do it!

The number 8 is a relentless taskmaster and demands that you understand and employ all your abilities to achieve financial abundance while also giving generously to others.

Understand that you’re here to achieve, but not simply by ‘winning’.


With a Soul Urge Number 8, you must empower yourself by acting within the highest ethical code, and by becoming “the authority” in whatever you do. When you pull yourself up and out of difficult circumstances (and yes, you’ll have more than your share of those!) and into success, that is when your heart’s desire will be fulfilled.

Money is a central theme for this Soul Urge Number.

It’s unlikely that you’ll find true satisfaction without achieving some sense of material success. And while money is an important aspect of everyone’s life, when 8 is your Soul Urge Number you’ll certainly experience some intense issues galvanized around money. Either you have it and must use it consciously and wisely, or you don’t have it and really struggle to rise above the feeling that the Universe is conspiring against you, believing that if you only had some money, you’d happy. Or what’s more likely is that you’ll experience both extremes of this spectrum during the course of your life and be required to learn lessons from being in each position. When the 8 shows up, often you can have a lot of money during certain portions of your life, lose it or give it away, then have money again (and so on).

The 8 is the number of flow – of give and take, coming and going.

So remember at all times that the 8 offers the energy of resilience, even when it feels rather devastating. And whatever you place your focused energy and desire on, using good ethics, hard work, and a generous spirit will expand almost magically.


Soul Urge Number 8 Challenges and Shadow Aspects

Some of your internal struggles are likely to include too much(or too little) focus on money. Because so many of your life lessons will involve this form of energetic currency, its hold over you, and the part it plays in your life will be huge and ongoing. And because the people around you observe this in you (money is an emotive subject for us all) it’s likely that many of these lessons will be played out in public. You cannot help but be observed in so much that you do, which means the trials you face will often be faced on behalf of the collective.

If you struggle with money, start by healing and establishing your sense of self, by defining and acting on your personal boundaries. This will serve to bolster your sense of self-worth, which may appear from the outside to be blooming with fortitude, is not always as strong as others think.

When you are thriving financially and giving generously from your heart, you’re doing what your soul was born to do. But here’s a word of caution: Don’t allow the pursuit of money to overshadow your ability to build healthy relationships.

You can, at times, be easily misinterpreted by other people because of your direct, factual and often opinionated manner. You can also become obstinate and stubborn, believing that you are the only one with certain capabilities or strengths. But if you listen to other peoples’ advice once in a while, you’ll realize that they can help you build your empire. Or if you’re working with the destructive tendencies of the number 8, you can turn into the ultimate doormat: self-destructive, sulky and wallowing in hapless victimhood.


Soul Urge 8 Love & Relationship Compatibility

Your compatibility in relationships will depend very much upon whether your partner shares your vision to succeed in life and is able to offer you the support, resources (and freedom) to accomplish that vision. Because you’re someone who tends to put your career first and romantic relationship second, you may struggle to maintain the sense of emotional closeness with partners who really need it. You need your relationships not to be too demanding – if they get in the way of your other plans then real problems could ensue. But without love, what are you doing it all for? What does money, fame, and power mean, if you have no one to share it all with? Your lessons in money could well spill over into the realms of love, so it’s important that you don’t neglect this part of your life.

It’s likely that you experience many different relationship dynamics throughout your life. Particularly in your earlier life, you may find many people want to be with you – the power of the number 8 is intensely magnetic. The Soul Urge Number of each partner you meet will teach you a lot about yourself, so ensure that you regard each relationship as a teacher.

Your most compatible numbers are the 2, 4, 8 and the 22.

Your least compatible numbers (though the ones where you have most to learn) are the 3 and 5.



Soul Urge 8 Career, Work & Lifestyle Ideas

Right out of the gate, you have authority issues. It’s almost as though you’re a magnet for hostile teachers, crappy bosses, and even lousy or challenging parent(s) or life partners. But the truth is, these are all part of a testing ground for you to learn – often through negative example – how NOT to be a good authority figure so that you can gain insight into how to embody healthy and effective leadership. It is possible that you meet a wonderful mentor, although this does seem less likely for you intense Number 8s.

In any event, the point is that you’re being trained and coached to be an influential and above-board organizer, manager, or leader.


Because of your highly influential nature (whether you like it or not!) you must be sure to always act with integrity. You have exceptionally high ambitions and are always striving for a little more. But, if there’s a chance you’ll get caught out – for cheating the system, short-changing a client or running a red light – then you will! So don’t put yourself through the heartache of taking undue risks. In business, however, calculated risks are what it’s all about for you, so carry on, and you’ll always do well.

A large part of this vibration is learning to take the rough with the smooth. Just like the flowing, infinite line that makes up the timeless single digit as it’s written, you will always come back to top position. On the way around, though, you will need to roll with the punches.

With the 8 as your Soul Urge, these qualities and characteristics may be something only you can see or feel. Or alternately, you may already be a masterful money manager, a giving philanthropist, a powerful and achievement-oriented organizer, or any other conduit for helping empower others. It ultimately depends on the other numbers in your chart and how those energies mix and match with your intense and power-focused number 8.
