The Number Eight represents compassionate action and doing the work to improve our own life and the lives of those around us. It is how we bring our ideals into reality and walk our talk. To determine your Ruling Number, add up all the number in your birthday until it forms a single digit or master number (11, 22, 33, etc.) For example: January 5, 1988 = 1+5+1+9+8+8 = 32 = 3+2 = Ruling Number 5. To determine the numerology of your name or of a Power Word spell it out and add up all the numbers. For example: “Jeff” is 1+5+6+6 = 18 = 1+8 = Number 9 ; “Luck” = 3+3+3+2 = Master Number 11.
