Eight has a talent for rising above adversity. Because it tends to see the whole picture, temporary setbacks or disadvantages can’t keep eight down for long. It is resilient and enduring. It is associated with strength and toughness.

Eight is so sure that it is right all the time and that it sees more clearly than anyone else, that it can be arrogant and inflexible. Its’ anger is explosive and destructive. It can be condescending and contemptuous.
