1Number 8’s reap the greatest karmic rewards by having faith and working diligently to accomplish their goals no matter what others say. As 8s are often wealthy, they reap what they sow by donating at least 10% of their income to charities. Your biggest fear is poverty. Others’ first impressions of you might be of a greedy or shallow individual. This is the karmic card that deals with prosperity and abundance and learning to appreciate what one has been given. People with this karmic number often struggle with money in life until they learn to focus on gratitude and simple abundance, which in turn draw true prosperity.

Those who have number 8 lacking in their names have karmic lesson number 8. These people are normally able to do well in business and thus are able to bring in good amounts of money. However, they also have to go through ups and downs as they are not able to handle their resources properly due to lack of cautiousness. These people are very independent and self-regulating and thus do not like to be told to do things and thus always have a tiff with the person who holds authority. This arises from a dogged behavior that thwarts them from understanding their limitations. In their adulthood these people tend to focus on the pursuit of money and status and leave behind valuable relationships. Thus they may seem shallow and materialistic. These people need to know how to manage their money. It is likely that these people will possess enough money but will always have a tendency to spend it rather than save any of it. This lesson guides a person on knowing their boundaries, and also the need of limiting their expenditure. They also need to learn to be well-organized.

The effect of this karmic lesson number reduces if number 8 is present once or more number of times in their birthday, or destiny number. Your financial life is going to have some major highs and lows. You are good at attracting prosperity. You may even have a good head for business. These things will not, however, shield you from having money problems. This is mostly owning to your inability to be cautious enough with your money. Even more, you don’t like being given advice. You don’t want people telling you how things should be done. You have a real “my way or the highway” attitude and that can keep you from taking full advantage of opportunities when they come knocking. This is especially true if opportunity comes at the expense of being someone else’s subordinate. You don’t like having a boss. The problem is that your dislike for authority also prevents you from recognizing or setting reasonable boundaries. You have trouble seeing your own limitations and that makes you come across as a know-it-all. You will find yourself in situations where hard lessons are learned by being so thick-skinned. You will be forced to admit that you need help, especially when it comes to managing money. Help will present itself and you will have to force yourself to accept it if you want to maintain your standard of living. Making money will likely never be a problem for you but knowing what to do with it will.
