Astro-Numerology - Lesson 8
   by G. Kumar
In higher states of Consciousness, many scientific and philosophic 
truths were cognised by the sages of India. They wrote it down and 
these came to be known as the Vedas. Sciences like Astronomy, 
Mathematics,  Astrology, Numerology, Gemology -- have their 
origin in this Encyclopaedia of the Philosophic Sciences, the Vedas. 
By Vedas no books are meant. They are the celestial truths cognised by 
Seers and which can be cognised by anyone who cultivate the same spiritual discipline.

Effects of Fadic Number Eight

Your Numerological Number is 8 and your Life Controller is Saturn. 
People misunderstand them and because of that they suffer mentally 
and become loners. They are people with great individuality and 
depth in learning. If religious they will take to Religion in a great 
manner. In order to win arguments they destroy the opposition verbally 
and create a lot of secret enemies.

They have great sympathy for the oppressed and show a lot
of laziness and lack of enthusiasm. They are extremists; that
is they are either very successful or great failures. There
is no middle course for them. These people always aspire for
greatness, strive for leadership and sacrifice their personal
comforts to maintain the high posts earned by them as a resu-
lt of their laborious endeavours. Anyway 8 is not a lucky nu-
mber; they will have to bear great ills, losses and humiliati-
ons.The ancient Greeks called this number the Number of Just-

Their best days are 8 17 & 26. If 4 13 22 31 coincide with
Saturday Sunday & Monday these days become very auspicious
Their best jewel is Blue Sapphire.It is very good for them if
they wear this stone.

4's. This was considered to be the great decision of Universal
Law which rules races and individuals. Saturn is also known
as the Planet of Destiny. It has relevence to both material
and spiritual aspects of Life. Revolution, Anarchy earthqua-
kes and all sorts of evil and uncommon events are represented
by this number. On the other hand Philosophy, Religious Fer-
vour, One-pointedness of Mind, determination - all these are
also represented by this number.They feel that they are diff-
erent from the rest and therefore unique. They lack happiness
People always misunderstand them. They also fail to reap the
good actions they have done in this life. But even then they
are admired after a long time.

George Bernard Shaw, King Alphonsa of Spain & Queen Mary were
born like you under this number and it will not be suprising
if anyone identifies similar characteristics in you.

parted by him. This melancholy planet is responsible for the
verdict imposed by Destiny.

You are cool and analytical when it comes to rational think-
ing. You are also a master where shrewdness and business ins-
ight is called for.

Your philosophical outlook on life will save you from many
worries and anxieties.

Your main drawback is that you become too fatalistic ignoring
the power of free-will.

You are always misunderstood by others. You endorse the prin-
ciple " to be great is to be misunderstood ".

You always carry your cross consecrating yourself to the Div-
ine even when the verdict of men and Fate go against you. Your
life is always marked by strife and struggle.

Even if you become successful you have to pay a heavy price
for it. You have to live laborious days to attain fame and name.

An Analytical Review

The zodiac sign representing this number is Capricorn.
( Do not confuse this with the birthsign in Astrology )
Capricornians are generally philosophers. They love the secr-
ets of Nature and are ready to sacrifice their life for their
chosen ideology.

Capricornians are fatalists. They believe that everthing is
divinely ordained and all events have a purpose behind it.
Amor fati ( Love of Fate ) is the core of their nature.

People under the influence of this constellation are great
democrats and believe in the dignity of labour.

In a life marked by struggle and suffering the fortitude of
the Capricornian is indeed surprising. Temperance is another
virtue imparted by this constellation.

Negative Aspect
Saturn is the planet of suffering and he can make you carry
the cross for a longish time. He will test your patience. He can
create obstacles and hindrances and barriers to success make you

the goddess of Love, Venus. Saturn, the significator of sorrow and
liberation,along with Jupiter aroused in Him the desire to redeem the
world through Universal Love. His suffering life & martyrdom all smacks
