© 2000 G. Kumar - Eastrovedica
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
If the Eigthian is YOU!
(Fadic Number is the number got after adding all the digits comprising your date of birth).
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 result of their laborious endeavours. Anyway 8 is not a lucky number; they will have to bear great ills, losses and humiliations. The ancient Greeks called this number the Number of Justice.
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.
The number 8 is made up of two circles and is the sum of 2 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 earthquakes and all sorts of evil and uncommon events are represented by this number. On the other hand Philosophy, Religious Fervour, One-pointedness of Mind, determination - all these are also represented by this number. They feel that they are different 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.
Personality Overview - Controller of Life - SATURN
You are ruled by the ringed planet Saturn. He is the planet of Justice, Destiny and Retribution. He represents destruction and regeneration. Great patience and perseverance are imparted by him. This melancholy planet is responsible for the verdict imposed by Destiny.
As you are saturnine (melancholic) by temparament you will be attracted to Literature and Philosophy. Great poets and literatuers always had a saturnine background (Dante and Shaw) Concentration and contemplation are represented by Saturn. Contemplative Life will absorb you in its entirety.
You are cool and analytical when it comes to rational thinking. You are also a master where shrewdness and business insight 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 principle "to be great is to be misunderstood".
You always carry your cross consecrating yourself to the Divine 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.
In Vedic Astrology Saturn is the significator of Sorrow of the Cosmic Man, the sorrow inherent in the act of Manifestation. He is also the Mokshkaraka or significator of Liberation. Along with Jupiter and Ketu, Saturn play a promiment part in the native attaining to Self-Actualisation.
A powerfully posited Saturn is preferable from the perspective of Nirvana. Saturn rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac, Delta Cancri (Pushya), Delta Scorpii (Anuradha), Gamma Pegasi & Alpha Andromeda (Utharabhadra).
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 secrets 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.
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 worried.

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Eight is considered very sacred. In Indian Mythology, there are Ashta Aishwaryas (eightfold prosperity). Wisdom is prosperity, wealth is prosperity,courage is prosperity, children represent prosperity etc Ashta Vasus represent the eightfold prosperity. This is also the symbolism behind Ashta Lakshmi. (the eight aspects of the Goddess of Prosperity).
Yoga is eightfold - Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana & Samadhi. Yama and Niyama deal with rules and regulations , Asana deals with physical fitness, Pranayama is breath control, Pratyahara is withdrawal into the Self from the sensory world, Dharana is Concentration, Dhyana is Meditation and Samadhi is Cosmic Consciousness.
Astronumerology as related to Religion & Philosophy
Saturnine Influence on Jesus
Jesus was born with Virgo rising, Jupiter, Moon and Saturn in Pisces, indicating the Messiah willing to bear the Cross of Golgotha. His number was 888 which when added gives us 24 and 2+4 = 6, the number of Venus, the planet of Love. The prophet of Love was indeed the embodiment of 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 of Saturnine influence. Other divine personalities - Tagore, Aurobindo & Vivekananda also had a profound Saturnine influence in their natal charts.
In the next article we will deal with the Nineians - those who are ruled by the planet of materiality or Man, Mars.
