Intrigued? Numerologists uncover the meaning of angel number 8, as an individual number and when seen as a sequence of multiple eights, and what to make of it if it’s repeatedly showing up in your life.
What is the meaning of angel number 8 in numerology?
To understand the spiritual significance of angel number 888, it helps to know the meaning of the individual number—and, according to numerology experts, the number eight holds special significance. “In numerology, the number eight represents abundance, karma, manifestation, and power,” says Vannessa Williams, numerologist, astrologer, and tarot reader of Beyond Your Sun Sign. It is also a lucky number, which according to numerologist Joy Woodward, author of A Beginner’s Guide to Numerology, deals with authority, power, finances, and material wealth.
In a nutshell: “The number eight is a symbol for the energetic vibration of personal power, hidden power, shared resources, determination, material and financial gain, the pinnacle, recognition of work, lifestyle upgrades, rebirth and generation, and transformation,” says astrologer Jacquelyn Tierney.
The spiritual significance of angel number 888
In the words of Ariana Grande, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it,” and though she doesn’t mention the number eight in her song "7 Rings," it’s a fine summation of the angel number 888 and its spiritual significance. “Angel number 888 is a reminder of your powers of manifestation,” says Williams. “It is a reminder that you are abundant in many ways and empowering others is your duty.”
What should you do if you see angel number 8?
When you repeatedly see the number eight or angel number 888, the universe may be calling you to harness its powerful energy. “Seeing the number eight can be a sign that you are in the zone to attract prosperity and abundance,” says Tierney. However, that isn’t to say that what you seek won’t come without effort on your part. “Remain steady in your efforts to put forth good work and continue to show up for what you want,” she says. “The universe will take care of the rest.”
What not to do when you see angel number 8
While angel number 8 or 888 is a positive message that material abundance is within reach, you don’t want to be overzealous in your appetite for power. “The universe is asking you to find balance between your material and spiritual worlds,” says Woodward, as angel number 888 is as much about karma as it is about abundance and power.
In your pursuit of your version of abundance, though important to harness your power and embrace what’s yours, avoid letting this pursuit overpower you and stepping on others’ toes—or it can greatly backfire. Another tip from Tierney? “Avoid haste to keep this great power in check. Everything you have built can come crashing down as fast as it was constructed.”
How to harness the powers of angel number 888 in your daily life
Given that angel number 8 is all about manifesting, appreciating, and sharing abundance, there are several ways you can harness its power.
To manifest abundance
One way to manifest the abundant powers of angel number 888 is with a regular manifestation practice. If you are new to manifesting, you can start with Roxie Nafousi’s Manifest: 7 Steps to Living Your Best Life ($18), a manifestation guidebook containing lessons and pages to write your thoughts and reflections. You can also opt to use a journal to jot down your hopes, wishes, and dreams. The trick is to write as though they’ve already happened or is currently happening.
If, for instance, you want to make $100,000 a year, you would write it in your journal as “I make $100,000 a year,” which is a concept that’s also known as the law of assumption. This method helps ensure that your ideas are always top of mind, and thus makes it more likely to come to fruition. I’ve personally used this practice for the past three years and it’s been mind-blowing and so fulfilling to watch my life unfold. (Manifesting is real, y’all!)
To show gratitude for abundance
Start a gratitude journal. The Papier Gratitude Journal ($38) offers space to express your thanks, and the hardbound book, which is sold in dozens of different colors and prints, is downright beautiful.
To share your abundance
If you’re open to creating content, make a TikTok video or Instagram reel with one of the various popular audios about manifestation and abundance. In doing so, this might inspire others to tap into an abundance mindset. Podcast host, lawyer, and motivational speaker Mel Robbins is a wealth of good advice and her audios flood social media.
Another option is to get off social media altogether and share your abundance in real life. Donate your money and time to the causes you care most about. Don’t be afraid to reach out a helping hand to those in need. The smallest acts of kindness can go a long way.
At the end of the day, remember this: “The angel number 888 means that you are manifesting abundance,” says Williams. “Be a visionary because the universe supports your manifestations.”
