The number 8 signifies abundance, harvest, transformation, cycles, diligence, prudence, strength, magnanimity, splendour, harvest, manifestation, jealousy and power. In a relationship reading, the 8 is a number of complexity which often heralds the need for a resolution, either through cutting cords and moving on or through a singular focus.
