No.08 – Octad
The Number Eight, often called the Karmic equaliser, allows us to balance our material and earthly interests and achievements with the progress of our spiritual journey. It is a number of cosmic connections and is symbolic of the great Mother Goddess of creation and nourishment.
You will find the Number Eight embedded in our DNA; guiding us in the Chinese I Ching; whispering to us through Islamic Art and Hindu Yantras. The Eight is so poetically woven in this way, it draws comparison to its eight-legged archetypal spider energy; weaving destiny for humanity and the cosmos as seen in Mayan, Native American and other ancient cultures.
In mathematics and numerology, the Eight holds the essence of the numbers One, Two and Four – reminding us of the unity we came from, the polarities we live with, the earth we live on and how the feelings and actions bred from these numbers are mirrored in our daily experiences within the cosmos.
