Today is an 8 Day ~ Balance and power

Positive Characteristics: 8 days are authoritative, business-minded leaders. They value control and tend to be powerful, but are also balanced, materially detached, successful and realistic. They end up in management positions, are efficient, capable, street-smart and good judges of character.

Negative Characteristics: The dark side of the 8 can be cruel, insensitive, violent, bullish or greedy. At their worst, 8s can become intolerant religious zealots.

Associated in Astrology with: Leo
Associated in Tarot with: Strength

The number 8 is perhaps the most misunderstood of all single-digit numbers, as novices and professionals alike always seem to hammer on the “money and power” image of the 8. More often than not, when a client requests a name change consultation, it means he or she wants to add 8s to his or her chart in the mistaken belief that it will bring money and power.

It is true that the number 8, more than any other number, puts the emphasis in the areas of career, business, finances and authority. However, as with many other single-digit numbers, the shape of the number reflects its most important attribute, and in the case of the number 8, that is, first and foremost, balance. The 8 is the great Karmic equalizer, a force that just as easily creates as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured that you will reap what you’ve sown.

The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the 8 is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet does not care much about money for the sake of money. It is not greedy, it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks. People with strong 8s in their charts often make and lose fortunes a couple of times during their life. They never consider bankruptcy a reason to slow down or feel sorry, but, rather, come out stronger and more success-oriented than before.

Some of the more recognizable traits of the 8 are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline and control. The 8 is goal-oriented, focused, has good judgment, can discriminate and is practical, a realist. Its closest relative is the 1 as both numbers are powerful, have strong leadership skills, are unquestionably masculine and will not shy away from a confrontation. However, where the 1 lacks diplomatic skills and an understanding of human nature — more typically the traits of the 2 — the 8 has those abilities as well, which is perhaps the most important reason the 8 tends to do well in business and in authority roles (the military and law enforcement draw a lot of 8s).


August 2

Posted: August 2, 2012 in Astrology

August kicks off with an abundance of good vibes, while also placing a sharp focus on your social life. But don’t think this means the universe won’t throw a challenge or two your way as well!
August 2 features a pair of compelling astrological events: the full Moon rising in Aquarius opposite the Leo Sun, and the Sun partnering with Jupiter.

Aquarius and Leo are both fixed signs — in other words, super stubborn! — so as the Moon and Sun oppose one another, you’ll have a hard time deciding between following an independent or hyper-social path. Try to choose an activity that allows for team-oriented goals as well as individual success; possible ideas could include participating in a team sport or supporting a local cause. At the very least, try your best to find peace, whether you’re the center of attention or just one of the gang!

Fortunately, Jupiter also accompanies the Sun at this time to let fortune, luck and confidence shine down upon you! Jupiter, currently under the influence of Gemini, will fill your world with sparkling and witty conversations, while prompting everyone to avoid confrontation and arguments. It’s a perfect day to get out and chat up everyone you see!

A bit of confidence can do wonders to improve your day, and the best way to build self-assurance is to understand and accept who you are.

The day begins with on-the-fence energy when it comes to our confidence, with the Sun quincunx Pluto, but it ends with an energy that injects us with courage – the Sun trine Uranus, which perfects shortly into tomorrow. The morning’s quincunx points to a need to make adjustments in order to move forward. The latter part of the day, influenced by the Sun-Uranus trine, stimulates flexibility and openness to change. An original, unique approach to life is in order now, and works to our benefit. We may make some creative changes and discoveries, experiment with new possibilities, or invent a new way of doing things. The Moon is tough in Capricorn, from 3:30 AM EDT. We are more willing to put our self-nurturing desires aside in order to attend to business under this influence.

The Moon ends its void period today at 3:30 AM EDT, when the Moon enters Capricorn.

Venus This Week: On Monday and Tuesday, we benefit from a trine between loving Venus and realistic Saturn. While our affections may not be expressed colorfully or animatedly now, we are more realistic in our expectations of others and of our relationships. Relationships begun under this influence possess a distinctly practical theme, almost as if the partnership is a business endeavor, and have much potential to last. Wednesday and Thursday brings more flighty energy. The Sun semi-square Venus can stimulate irritations and restlessness. Ego matters can interfere with healthy relating patterns. Do your best to control yearnings for more and search for a creative solution for your inner dissatisfaction.
Venus trine Saturn July 30-31. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. A new sense of realism and maturity in existing partnerships. Relationships begun under this influence possess a distinctly practical theme, almost as if the partnership is a business endeavor, and have much potential to last.
