8. Strength

As a person

Strength is the person that is described as others as their rock. They conduct themselves with certainty that all things will fall into order and that everything happens for a reason. When there’s a situation filled with doubt, they’ll be the one to inspire the troops to stand up and fight.

They lead not through fear and intimidation but through kindness and patience, they make the best managers and are often philanthropists.



Strength for a single querent often means that patience needs to be found through any frustration they might be feeling. It will happen, eventually the right person will appear at the right time.

There’s no point rushing into a relationship with the wrong person, is there?


For a querent in a relationship, Strength often indicates you need to find patience with your other half.

Not everyone is quick to pick-up non-verbal signals of what is bothering you and sometimes you just need to spell it out and give them the time to fully comprehend the situation.

Career & Money

Good things come to those who wait. Sometimes is better letting mediocre deals slip by while waiting for something worth your while. Rarely does a good opportunity appear instantly.

If you’re looking for work be patient with processes that appear to stretch on forever and don’t discount opportunities that you consider above your competence.


The number 8 is often associated with infinity. It’s a shape of balance and harmony reminding us that we’re moving through cycles that came before us and will continue after us.

Symbolizing life, death and rebirth, the number tells us that eventually the stars will align and good things will happen.
