Life Path Number 8 Romance and Love Life
You may have a hard time forming relationships because of your remarkable strong-willed nature and your desire for materialistic things above all other things. You tend to seeing people as tools towards a successful path in your favor rather than thinking and feeling beings.
It´s not like you are a heartless souls - often times, it is very practical, and doesn´t stop you from treating these people good. However, while that has truth for business and casual relationships, it can be a hindering factor in love and romance. In order to mitigate this, you must find a siginificant other with practically unnatural powers of serenity. These two numbers are the most sensitive in an emotional way of the Life Paths, and they will be the most willing to stay on your side during your more controlling moments. When you settle in a relationship with one of these remarkable patient souls, you may at first think like everything is going exactly the way you want it, and go ahead with your will. You will take responsibility for all the choices, and your siginificant other will let you do it without any sort of resistance. But you will soon become aware that you are receiving less resistance than normal. Then, you will become self-concious when you begin making decisions without involving your partner. You will start asking them more, and learn to appreciate their views and opinions more.

Therefore, through their innocent use of something almost like reverse psychology, they will aid you in becoming more conscious of your tendencies and correct them, without ever directly criticizing you.
In short - you are a match made in paradise! You will doubtless be very happy in these relationships, and quickly form a respect for your partner´s calm wisdom, that will lead you to listen very closely to whatever they have to tell you when they speak up. From this perspective, you can also be in a very successful relationship with this number, because they are as sensible. You are the one with a big picture and they are the ones with attention to detail, which in turn means that you can outright complete almost everything, including having a harmonious relationship. However, often times you will feel this Life Path number is boring and dull, and sometimes this Life Path Number will resent numerology 8´s tendencies to control everything. Sometimes you are in better harmony in a work relationship. It depends on the individual.
Life Path number 8 will clash quickly with these two numbers, since both of these Life Path numbers are quite dedicated to their own freedom or goals. If you manage to find a soul with this Life Path Number, whose goals perfectly fit with yours, you can form a spectacular power couple, but be careful - even a minor difference could cause a catastrophic explosion between you.
Remember, as at all times, that compatibility in numerological terms is not a substitute for the "human factor" which makes all of us individuals. If it were that easy as just looking at compatible Life Path numbers, you might as well be the exact same person as someone born on the very same day! You must always take personal variations into the equation.
Life Path Number 8 in the Business World
Business Life and Career Life is where numerology 8 traits really shines! You are very unlikely to encounter any problems in this field, as the necessarey traits valuable in the business world come naturally to you. You have a sixth sense of what is a clever business move and what is not, including the type of souls who you should involve when it comes to business dealings.
Taking orders isn´t your favourite thing, which can make Life Path number 8 great start-up leaders and entrepreneurs. However, if you can cast aside your pride a little bit in order to get past the initial challenges of taking orders, you can also succeed in more traditional business settings. Rest assured, you won´t be taking orders for a long time. It won´t be long before your boss notice your remarkable skills and the amazing results you are getting, and start elevating you up the ranks. Don´t be scared to show off and tell them with all honesty how great you are at your position, and how much value you bring to the company - as soon as you have the results to back this claims up (which will come soon), supervisors will want to see it.
The big pitfall that many numerology 8´s face in the business world is this trait. It may seems only like a tiny exaggeration to state that when success is on the line, you don´t want to trade off for things as slippery as morals.
Take care to give your morals some serious thought, and not to cast aside any situation an success opportunity contradicts it. Often times, it is much more preferable, in the long run, to decline an initial success opportunity in favour of morals. This will fire back in a positive way, and people will notice and appreciate it in due time. Because you put so much emphasis on the past, having done questionable things in the past also seems relatively more likely to appear in your life and bite a numerology 8. You may become so badly haunted by guilt that you have problems getting things done, yet quite unwillingly to share this guilt with anyone else because you fear compromising the success you have worked for so long.
You also need to be careful of not becoming to overly materialistic, because you put such an heavy emphasis on the material world. You need to maintain a healthy balance between the spiritual and the physical, and striking that balance is a thing that good-adjusted Destiny number 8 can do quite successful.
Keep an open mind about your interests, and you can find yourself in a much more successful and honest life than if you try to conceal the truth that you are after prestige and money. This is not a thing to be ashamed of but there will be souls who prefer not to have an association with your traits.
Thats ok - let them avoid you, and keep your focus on courting the favour of souls who share your views on life and can relate to your value system. Not everyone is obliged to think in the same way, there is plenty of room in this world for a wide variety of views on success, including the very materialistic ones and the very anti-materialistic ones. No one need to please everyone.

Make an concious effort to listening to others and try to appreciate the advice of your partners and friends, and you will find a lot more success in your relationships. Individuals will appreciate feeling like they are taken for serious, and you will be happy to realize at how much more willing they will be to listen to what you have say, in return.
That is one of the things you can practice at this very moment - next time someone is telling you something, listen actively, and consider each piece of advice or suggestion that they have to offer with a genuine interest.
Practicing this in relationships, this will prevent you over time, from feeling like you are on goingly swimming against a current of ignorant people resisting you for no obvious reason. You will be surprised at how much easier things go when you stimulate your relationships just a little bit.
Be concious of your loved ones, and find ways to show your affection for them that doesn´t involve materials. Displays of love free from materialistic things are very important, and will prevent you from drawing the types of people (we know as gold-diggers) who are just trying to get material goods from you.
To make gifts may is your love language, but that is not the case for everyone, and often times your partner, family or friends would appreciate a few hours of your time, without interruption and undisturbed by your work, a lot more than they would appreciate a costly gift.
By putting more emphasis on your relationships, you can find a more comfortable balance between your profession and other fields of your life. That doesn´t meand that you should turn your back on your hard work - far from the truth! Having this workaholic mentality is one of the things that makes you - You - and in numerology the number 8 is always happening to be a person driven by materialistics.
But that doesn´t have to mean that your only focus should be on work. You can split your time between multiple priorities without sacrificing one of them - you should be very well aware of this fact. A little scheduling might be necessary, or to take a chunk out of your free time, but if you make relationship-building a priority (which you absolutely should), you can attain this.
By building stronger relationships, you will feel more at ease, peace and more filled with joy over time, even without relinquishing any of the focus you put on your business priorities. Consider all this when you are deciding how to share your time.
Time is one of your most valuable and precious resource, so decide how much you need to still focus on your busienss, and how much time you can divert to your relationships, family and friends, in order to succeed in both those categories.

Planet Saturn is the numerology 8´s ruler and souls born on 8,17 and 26 come under the leadership of planet Saturn. Saturn is considered to be one the most influencal planets in both the fields of numerology and astrology.
Your strong sense of yourself and your path makes it almost pointless to telling a 8 about numerology. After reading this, you maybe have felt the need to double down, thinking "what do they know about me anyway?".
This is a very relatable reaction, and quite understandable for numerology 8. You just don´t take it for granted being told what to do. So change your perception of thinking any of what was stated here are instructions or orders.
See them instead as suggestions for new open roads and paths, for stuff that you can consider doing, keep them somewhere in the back of your mind, and remember this sometime in the future. Your persona fits good in today´s modern and fast changing way, and you are destined for huge amount of success in fields that are very important in this life, especially in the business world. You bring all the natural qualities that make you a great boss and supervisor, and you will be holding back your full potential if you don´t take full advantage of them. However, you still ned to dedicate a bit of your focus to building good relationships with others. I can see that this will never be the absolute top of your priorities, as it is to a 2 or a 6, but it is both necessary and possible for you to find a good balance. Often times, it will seem like you are having to damper yourself, so that you can do it, and if this how you are feeling then you should stop and newly evaluate, but for the most part, taking time to stimulate your relationships is often worth the trouble.
Keep in mind, nothing you are doing will ever matter to this world if it doesn´t matter to the souls of this world. You need to cultivate those souls good opinions if you want to really find success and happiness - which, to all of the souls with Life Path number 8 out there, I can figure you do.
