The number 8 resonates with the the planet Saturn.
The Numerology of 8: Its Meaning and Significance
The number 8 gives strength, the ability to balance energies and judge any situation wisely. 8 resonates with the planet Saturn. With its rings and a mysterious hexagon on its north pole, Saturn is one of the more eccentric planets. Saturn resonates with the earth element and was the Roman god of the harvest – by the Greeks called Kronos, a God who ruled in the early times, where all lived in harmony with nature.
8 has a strong personality with high survival skills and the ability to never give up in the face of hardship. The 8 gives focus, ambition, and high intellect, which typically can plan everything in the mind before executing the plan in real life. Saturn is a planet of fate and karma, so people under the influence of the number 8 may have encountered many difficulties and obstacles in life. But this has also equipped them with enormous perseverance to overcome any challenge.
The symbol of the number 8 is the same as the symbol of infinity, and in this way, the number 8 resonates with eternity. Many people with 8 energy are remembered after their death.
As an 8, you can be both passionate, well organized, and intensely spiritual or driven by a higher purpose at the same time. 8 in balance unites its spirituality with a practical sense. At the same time, the 8 in imbalance is either exclusively in the upper or lower part of the 8 - neglecting either the spiritual or material side of life. This can make the 8 overly materialistic like the imbalanced number 3, or overly mental or spiritual like the imbalanced number 7.
Like Saturn, 8's are unique and eccentric. They go their ways and are unaffected by what others think about them.
An 8 in balance is warm, passionate, rests in itself, and is honest and loyal.
Inside, 8 can feel misunderstood and lonely and often wants to be alone. It sees it as a weakness to ask for help, and it could potentially hide its feelings from others who can perceive it as being cold and cynical. Loved ones will know that it is processing, but others may not know this. 8 has a big heart and high moral values, and once it feels respected, it will do everything for others. The keyword here is respect.
8's naturally become philosophers, artists, freedom fighters, religious leaders, judges, politicians, or administrators.
If the 8 energy is blocked, the 8 becomes insecure about everything and everyone and are afraid to show who they are. Like Saturn is surrounded by a majestic system of rings – the number 8 can have a subtle ring system around itself, keeping others at bay – it is more comfortable to keep somebody at a safe distance where they can't hurt it emotionally or physically. The opposite of strength is weakness, and the 8 may face severe issues with self-worth and self-confidence. If the 8 energy is too powerful, the 8 become edgy, cranky, impatient, and verbally aggressive. They can be brutal, cold-blooded, Machiavellian, and selfish with their agenda.
Your purpose in life as a number 8 (for example, if you are born on the 8th in the month or have life path 8) is to follow your passion and create heaven on earth by uniting your innate spirituality with your practical sense and strength – to merge up with down. Your most prominent life lesson is to forgive others, trust in life, and discover that you truly belong here.

8 is under the influence of SATURN
Saturn is perhaps the most beautiful of all planets with its huge ring system.
At Saturn's north pole, the clouds form a hexagoic geometric shape. The shape is vast spanning over 13,800 km making the shape wider than the planet Earth. The hexagon has six sides. The hexagon and the number 6 stand for love and beauty. In the middle of the 8 diamond, we also find the number 6 (digit sum of 15). This symbolizes the deep love and longing for love that number 8 feels at its core.
The vast rings of Saturn symbolize Saturn's resonance with eternity and eternal memory. But they also express Saturn's trait to keep people at a safe distance. There can be mistrust and skepticism.
Saturn people are receptive, often do not find understanding among others, and can suffer from loneliness. Their outward coldness and alienation hide the longing for a deeper and more profound love (the 6 core), but they do not know how to show it (the rings that keep people at bay).
Saturn people do not like superficiality; they like order and material security. Unfortunately, as Saturn is a planet of karma and fate, everything comes to them with difficulty, and everything must be achieved on their own.
Saturn people honor rules and laws. They are pragmatic, prudent, cautious, punctual, and methodical in everything that they do. They are hardworking and persistent in achieving their goals and ideas.
The energy of Saturn demands material well being and certainty of the future.
Saturn people both give and demand loyalty, and they are very reliable people.
