The Numerology of 98: Its Meaning and Significance
The number 98 is the lesson of eternity and building things/projects that "last forever." Everything you do is measured up against a larger purpose. You should effectively be doing what it takes to get to the next level — great art or big projects that raise awareness.
98/8 is one of the most charismatic and spellbinding numbers. Outwardly it makes beautiful and timeless products. Inwardly it goes into the depths of its being to find the right inspiration and answers. It is a number that often experiences "divine interventions" – in the form of inspiration it suddenly downloads from the Cosmos – or through things that happen in the outer world that confirm an idea it has been turning in its head.
The 98/8 is in contact with an ancient splendor, traditions, and magnificence that it wishes to channel through any medium, usually art and music. The themes and motives that the 98/8 displays in its work have a sense of something timeless and something that will last forever.
We find the number 98/8 in the charts of great philanthropists and artists. For example, the artist Michelangelo has 98/8 in his numerological psychic self chart (Numerologist PRO Statistics).
In imbalance, one can feel immersed in problems and attract negative attention (imbalanced digit sum 17/8). There is also a tendency to take on too much on one's shoulders (inner 8 and digit sum 17/8) because there is a strong inner vision of how things should be. There can also be a fear of choices which leads to not making decisions. The 98/8 becomes paralyzed with anxiety can not move forward in fear of the consequences. 98/8 can remember so much and hold so much information from its "eternal memory" (8 and 17/8) that it can be perceived as wise but challenging to understand.

98 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.
