August is vibrating to the power number 8
August is the 8th month of the year and represents abundance, personal power and self-confidence and focusing on manifesting wealth, self-reliance and giving and receiving. Number 8 does provide an uplifting message of encouragement after last month’s testing and challenging 16/7 vibration. With the energy of the 8 You are encouraged toward achievement, success and striving forward. But you do want to be careful of overworking too much this month because it can represent running yourself into the ground especially for those who are workaholics. You must somehow find balance because it represents both masculine and feminine energies. The masculine energy is strong, demanding, reactive and active. The feminine energy is passive and non-active and non-reactive. Together they express the celestial in material form. Separated, they bring sorrow and destruction. Number 8 represents authority and can guide and direct us, but only if we weigh and balance wisdom without prejudice.
8 as a temporary vibration over the next 31 days brings in the energy of responsibility money, business and karma. “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”. Number 8 is the number of karma – the universal spiritual Law of Cause and Effect. It’s also associated with the Strength card in the Tarot. So during August, it’s a month to stay on the right side of karma. If you receive any kind of payments, bonuses, raises or promotions for example, it’s because you deserve it and have paid your dues and put in a lot of hard work and have sown wisely. 8 is a business vibration, so if you are working on any kind of business venture, begin by building a strong foundation from the beginning. Be practical, act like a executive, act with authority, stay in control, use good judgment and be organized. World affairs do come under the scrutiny of the 8 vibration, so there could be some interesting developments in the banking and financial sectors. Again, the Law of Cause and Effect will be in play here, so be careful. The guideline is to work for a cause, not with force, ambition or the love of display.
The overall universal vibration for July is 17/8
August has double 8’s in the equation, and every month this year has the same universal vibration as any number added to the number 9. So August is the 8th month of the year and during a 9 universal year it adds up to a 17/8 universal month (8 + 9 = 17/8). So double 8’s actually intensifies the power and force that can make things happen more quickly. Eight is like a booster coil that gives us this momentum during August.
Under a 17/8 there could be assistance in matters of money, gifts and business affairs and things could become very profitable. This is a very auspicious vibration and helps with the manifestation process – and is associated with the Star card in the Tarot, but again, I must caution you about karma. The sum of your actions decides your fate, so do good and good will be returned to you. This month we are called upon to find balance between heaven and earth and to balance money and power through moral integrity and spirituality. Perform a health checkup of your finances, personal relationships, or any health issues because when things are in balance in all these areas, you are in your own power and in integrity with yourself.
Caution! August is in the Red Zone on a universal level. So this means that there could be challenges in the way we approach things because the vibrations of 8 and 9 are motivated quite differently and find it difficult to accept the ways of the other. The vibration of the 8 seeks reward, leadership and material success. The goals of a 9 vibration are lofty and lean towards one who is a humanitarian. If both of these vibrations can work as a team, this could be very inspirational and powerful. It comes down to free will. Which will you choose – Altrusim or being stingy or uncharitable? Again, you must find balance in August if you want things to click.
Until next month, follow the vibrations of all universal energy. Let the vitality and sparkle of energetic vibrations flow over and around you. Sync with it so that it works for you.
