LIFE PATH 8
Those with the 8 Life Path are gifted with natural leadership and the capacity to accumulate great wealth. You have a great talent for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters. You understand the material world; you intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies not with the bookkeeping or petty management, but with greater vision, its purpose and its long-range goals.
You are a visionary and a bit reckless at the same time. You posses the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest, but often they are incapable of seeing what you see. Therefore, those around you need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action, and direct them along the lines of your vision. You attract financial success more than any other Life Path, but effort is required.
Your challenges in life are to achieve a high degree of detachment, and to understand that power and influence must be used for the benefit of mankind. Those born with the number 8 Life Path who do not understand the real relative value of money, are bound to suffer consequences of greed; they run the risk of losing it all. You must have the character and resilience of a true survivor. It is not uncommon for a person with your life path to experience major reverses including bankruptcy and financial failure, but you also have the talent and sheer guts to make more than a fortune, and to build many successful enterprises. More than most people, your failures in marriage can be extremely expensive for you.
Despite the difficulties that life presents, you will experience the satisfaction that comes from material wealth, and the power that comes with it.
Business, finance, real estate, law and science (particularly history, archeology, and physics), publishing, and the management of large institutions are among the vocational suits that fit you the best. You are naturally attracted to positions of influence and leadership- politics, social work, and teaching are the many areas where your abilities can shine. Civil government, sports, and journalism are other areas that require the characteristics of 8.
You are a good judge of character, which aids you well in attracting the right people to you. Most 8s like large families, and they sometimes tend to keep others dependent longer than necessary. Although jovial in nature, you are not demonstrative in showing your love and affection. The desire for luxury and comfort is especially strong in you. Status is very important. [But you avoid showing off.]
Your Life Path treads that dangerous ground where power and corruption lie. You may become arrogant, and domineering, thinking that your way is the only way. This leads inevitably to isolation and conflict.
Be careful of becoming too stubborn, intolerant, overbearing and impatient. These characteristics may be born early in the life of an 8 Life Path, who often learns these negative traits after suffering under a tyrannical parent, or a family burdened by repressive religious or intellectual dogmas. Those with the 8 Life Path usually possess a strong physique, which is a symptom of their inherent strength and resiliency.
