Numerology: Secrets of your Birthday – 8th, 17th, 26th: Number 8 Life Path

If you were born on the 8th, 17th or 26th day of any month you have a Number 8 Life Path Master Number.

Organised, reliable, disciplined and ambitious. All these words apply to you if you were born under a Number 8. This is the most karmic birth number to have and during your lifetime you will cross paths with many, many people you have known in a previous one. You share many of the characteristics of those born under the sign of Capricorn no matter you own star sun and have an affinity with Capricorn’s ruler of Saturn. If you encounter Capricorns in this life then I’ll save you the guess work – yes, you have known them before!

Events in your early years may have made you grow up faster than your peers. You may have had to take on responsibility at an early age. You could even have left school early in order to earn money because your family needed it. If your early years were lonely because of this then know that the latter years will be filled to capacity! You possess great ambition and the drive to succeed so with some effort you should be able to rise to the top in whatever career you have chosen. The saying: ‘It took me 20 years to become an overnight success’ applies to you as you may have to put in a lot of hard work first but it is guaranteed for you if you put in the effort. However, on the way there you may often feel like giving up or feeling it’s not worth it. Please don’t and also if you do feel depressed, please don’t shut yourself off from others. Instead, get involved in social issues or helping those less fortunate than yourself. It helping others you will help yourself. Having an 8 as your birth number can either mean going around and around in circles because you fear change or climbing higher and higher – it’s up to you to decide which one it will be!

You may have been surrounded by older people when you were younger or found yourself caring for someone infirm. This may have hindered you from making friends. There may also be issues around lack of affection displayed by the parent of the opposite sex to you. In terms of children of your own, you may experience delays or obstacles with starting a family and you may find that one of your children may be quite reserved. Did you feel pressured by your parents or even grandparents to achieve certain goals when you were young? Do you have any expectations of your own children? Were your parents openly affectionate towards you? Are you children? This number often indicates trouble with your in-laws also – they may manufacture gossip about you and if you marry someone from a different background to you you will certainly know what I am talking about here!

You may be attracted to one of the ‘established’ professions – banking, medicine, academia, law and you would also do well in government or social issues. Many people born under an 8 establish their own business. You can succeed at anything you put your mind to and will, no matter what obstacles are placed in your path. However, if you go into business with a partner please ensure that you know them well and that you make it clear what happens to the business should one of you want to leave it.

In relationships you are genuine and steadfast and expect the same in return. There is every indication you will out-live your partner and there may be a big age difference between you. Don’t be fooled however to thinking this does not apply to you if your partner is much younger than you. With the right person you become a positive furnace of passion but the wrong person will bring out a cold side in you so please observe which one it is during the dating process and take your time. You take your responsibilities seriously so if you make a mistake in selecting a partner you will ‘stick it out’ longer than other numbers out of a sense of loyalty and duty even if deep down inside you know it is futile. The trick is not to put yourself in that position in the first place, so take as long as you want to get to know someone before making a commitment and save yourself the heartache and wasted years that could follow a bad decision. When loved you love deeply in return and as you become successful you will want to shower your mate with the best that money can buy however, you can attract a partner who is mean and refuses to share – again, this is another reason to take your time.

Relating to others is the biggest lesson anyone with an 8 Life Path is here to learn. Many people you meet during your life will determine your future success and this may not be obvious when you first meet them. Your number is all about connecting so open up and do that and success can and will be yours!
