NUMEROLOGY NUMBER No. 8 (For people born under the number 8, with the remedy for Planet Saturn)

Stars (Nakshatras) under Lord Saturn: Poosam, Anusham, Uthirataadhi

Men always look for enjoying their life to the fullest. They seek new thrills, luxurious comforts, eating rich food and other means of revelry. Too much of anything is good for nothing. So, they go in search of medicines for indigestion, obesity, diseases and holy places to wash away their sins.

The gooseberry is bitter to eat but leaves a sweet taste after eating it. The benefits of eating the gooseberry are many. But because of that temporary bitter taste, many refuse to partake that fruit and rather suffer the inconveniences.

Most people live for eating instead of the other way round. They become slaves to their taste buds; eat only food that tastes great, irrespective of its health benefits. Any food becomes the same once it crosses the tongue. But the importance of that momentary pleasure when it touches the tongue? People are strange indeed.

Like the tongue and its slavery to the momentary taste, the other eight astrological planets stir up the emotions and minds of the people, making them forget the Self and indulge in the materialistic way of life. But Planet Saturn stands apart from the other planets. Planet Saturn has the blessings of Lord Shiva. Planet Saturn is not appeased easily by the pleadings of the people, unlike the other planets. He stands apart, judges everyone according to their karma and past deeds and bestows accordingly. He will first tax His subjects according to their bad deeds and bless them next without fail.

Fate plays a big hand when a person is born on the day 8 or has his path number as 8. The numerology number No. 8 will face enormous struggles in their life, along with a physical or mental disability for life. When it comes as the destiny number, it provides obstacles and hurdles for the person after the age of 30. They will earn a bad name, thorough misunderstanding, among friends and relations. But then, the number 8 provides them with great self-confidence to fight alone and fight strong. It will show new ways, new places and new jobs for them. With their hard work, they will earn a good name and income after the age of 45. This can be gleaned from experience.

Like a teacher who corrects a straying student with scolding and detention, Lord Saturn corrects everyone towards the path of enlightenment. Hence the number 8 is the path to enlightenment.


Many of the numerology number No. 8 would have been born to wealth. But their mind will always buzz with some pain or the other, like a bee in their bonnet. They’re always held on to some heartache, physical discomfort or disability and go around with sadness. They say that Love is not to be found for free.

They are never satisfied; they either wish something to be better or hold on to some regret. They worry about having no children; having too many children; wife is not perfect; friends are selfish, etc. The people who mostly hate life and start orphanages, ashrams, old age homes or people who opt for living in such places are usually number 8. There is a Tamil saying that says the eighth born girl child will cause damage wherever she goes. So people are generally afraid of the number 8, 17 and 26 and generally do not hold any auspicious events during those days.

It is fate that the people born on the days 8, 17, 26, people with path number 8 and people with name number 9 suffer fall from grace and dishonor at some point in their lives.

When the strength if the number is strong, the numerology number 8 will be great businessmen, wealthy landowners, and good-hearted, saviors, saints, judges, donate for humanitarian causes, ministers, professors and hold top posts.

But others will suffer from one thing or other throughout their lives. They will somehow get entangled with the wrong side of the law, murder, robbery, kidnapping, forgery, prostitution, alcoholism, gambling and betrayals.

But never despair! Whatever the strength of their numbers, the numerology number 8 can rectify their problems by selecting their names based on sound numerology. By carefully crafting their names, many people have turned their lives around. We can also see many great people, wealthy businessmen, successful industrialists with the birth/path number 8.


Sikhism founder Guru Nanak, EVR Periyar, George Bernard Shaw, JRD Tata were some of the famous celebrities who born under numerology number 8, but they their names stand forever. They have staunch spiritual beliefs; many of them have complete faith in God. They either support their religion strongly or hate it spiritedly.

People born in Numerology Number 8 have relentless strength when it comes to seeing through their goals and dreams. Whatever hurdles and impediments they face, they keep striving. They are somewhat stubborn. Though they look tough and hard-hearted, they are soft on the downtrodden and help anyone who asks for it.

Numerology Number 8 people wish to do social service whenever they can. They also work tirelessly in their life. The people who renounce their positions, jobs, the family suddenly and take up social causes are usually name number 8.

Whether it is family life or social life, their lives will be pulled hither and thither due to the effects of Saturn. Any planet which comes to the 8th position in the astrological charts become maleficent and shower troubles to the respective Zodiac Sign. That is why most number 8 people become great philosophers or religious guides.


People are generally scared of the number 8. But it is the number of enlightenment. Even its shape denotes the symbol of Infinity, a mathematical representation of God.

In reality, the number 8 is the basis for the life and progress of the people. When 8 is the Destiny number, it looks at the past Karma of a person and bestows them accordingly. Any job they undertake will be fraught with hassles and delays, but they keep fighting without losing hope and win. They empathize with people who suffer from them; they are soft-hearted people. Most of them undertake great ground-breaking work, which they complete after huge trials and tribulations.

When this number is the Life number, they will face continuous victories or continuous failures at some point in their life.  But they never let it get to them and keep doing their job. They also do social work whenever they get time.

The numerology number 8 do not get the support of their relatives. They get support from other race people, foreign people, and lands. If they face continual struggles, then the time for victory is near.

The number 8 looks like two 0s atop each other. Hence the success or failure of any job depends on their fate. Fear of fate is unnecessary. The good deed done today drives the fate of tomorrow. Bad deeds are done through negligence, selfishness transforms into bad fate in the future. Like the great Tamil book, Puranaanooru says “Our Good and Bad do not arise from others”, our actions determine our fate.

From ancient times men have feared the number 8 in both private and public life. On one side, the number brings the luck of the king, good heartedness, progress and fruitful hard work. But when the number is weak, it brings unrest, revolution, and crimes in the society.


Number 8 moan about their fate, but they will enjoy a king’s life at some point in their life. At times of distress, sometimes they even think about suicide, which is totally uncalled for.

They are great judges, god-fearing people. The number 8 tests people through the trial of fire. In the end, the men become pure and strong like gold. Most events in their life happen on the day 8. The Greeks used to call this number as “the eyes of Justice”.

The number 8s are very stubborn in their beliefs; if they decide on something, they won’t let go till they win. They never speak out their mind. Most of them experience success in their later years.

Usually, they have low or no self-confidence. It is necessary for the number 8s to build their confidence. They feel alone in the entire world. Hence they are suspicious about forming relationships with others.

By having correct names, they can overcome the failures in their life easily. Otherwise, suffering keeps coming in waves. They empathize with any fellow strugglers. If they cannot help, they direct them to places where they can get help.

When the number is weak, they take up robbery, cheating, prostitution, assassination without fear. But they do get caught and go to prison for their misdeeds.

They do anything with slow precision. They walk with their eyes on the ground.

They are great judges and point out the correct ruling every time. They never forget their friend and enemies. They love indulging in physical activities. They value solitude. Words like fate, justice, and life keep cropping in their everyday language.

Their financial situation will not be stable. They cannot enjoy any victory as it usually comes entailed with some loss or trouble.
