In Chinese Mythology, 2024 is the year of the Dragon, and it predicts that the Year will bring luck, wealth, and power, with strong leadership skills and many of the qualities of the 8, which 2024 represents in Numerology terms.

According to numerology, each number carries its own unique energy and significance. When these numbers are combined, they can reveal insights into the nature of specific years, individuals, or events. In the case of the coming new year, 2024, when the individual digits (2 + 0 + 2 + 4) are added together, the sum is 8. In numerological terms, the number 8 is associated with success, abundance, and achievement.

8 is a great number, and one can hope that 2024 will have all the traits of an 8. 

Numerology is an ancient practice rooted in various cultures and traditions, including those of ancient Egypt, Greece, China, and India. In Western numerology, the most used system is based on the Pythagorean method, which assigns numerical values to the letters of the alphabet and reduces these values to single digits. These single digits are then interpreted for their symbolic meanings and associations. The number 8 is viewed as a powerful and authoritative number with significant implications for success and material wealth.

One of the key associations with the number 8 in numerology is the concept of balance and harmony. 

The infinity loop symbol, which resembles the number 8 on its side, is often used to represent the idea of continual flow and equilibrium. In numerological terms, the number 8 embodies the principle of cause and effect, suggesting that actions and intentions will ultimately lead to corresponding outcomes, whether positive or negative. This association with balance and karmic justice is a central theme in interpreting the number 8 in numerology.

Another significant aspect of the number 8 in numerology is its association with achievement and success. The number is often seen as a symbol of material wealth, prosperity, and financial abundance. In various cultures, the figure 8 is considered lucky and is associated with good fortune, particularly in matters related to business, finance, and commerce. The symmetrical and continuous nature of the number 8 is thought to represent the cyclical nature of success and achievement, suggesting that what goes around comes around and that hard work and dedication will eventually lead to rewards.

The number 8 is linked to personal power and authority. Individuals born under the influence of the number 8 are believed to possess traits such as ambition, self-confidence, and a strong sense of leadership. They are seen as individuals who have the potential to take charge of their lives and create opportunities for success. In numerology, the number 8 is associated with the ability to manifest one's desires and to exert influence over one's circumstances, making it a symbol of personal empowerment.

In the context of the year 2024, the numerological significance of the number 8 might suggest a year that is full of potential for personal and collective achievement, and we are all aware that we need collective cooperation and consciousness at this time, with world conflicts, bizarre world leaders and greed at the root of who we have become as a species  This period could signify a time of world peace, equilibrium and harmony and at the same time be a period of substantial personal growth, financial stability, and the realisation of long-held ambitions. 

From a numerological perspective, the year 2024 may be a time when the personal and collective efforts and initiatives of the past bear fruit, leading to significant advancements and positive outcomes in various spheres of life. This interpretation of 2024 as an "8" in numerological terms may provide a sense of optimism and encouragement for individuals and humanity as a whole. 

Numerology, as with its ancient fellowships, Astrology, Tarot, mediumships, and a host of other modalities of prediction, is a guide or road map for us to consider. It is not a science. 

It highlights possibilities and potentials, and it’s up to each and every one of us to choose the path we wish to take. 

Throughout history, humans have sought to make sense of their experiences and surroundings through various modalities, including religion, astrology, and numerology. These modalities provide frameworks for interpreting, understanding and accepting the unknown and for finding meaning in the complexities of our existence. 

They offer a sense of order and purpose in a world that appears to be in disorder and chaos. These modalities offer comfort, inspiration and hope in a world often lacking in compassion and human feelings. 

Whether through the study of numerology, astrology, the interpretation of dreams, tarot, Tao Te Ching, and a host of other modalities, people have long sought ways to connect with energy forces beyond the material realm and to find meaning in the patterns and cycles of numbers, stars, and Signs. Offering us guidance and reassurance in our lives. 

Open your Heart this new year. Begin to connect to the feeling of knowing, the feeling of connection beyond understanding, awareness of truth over falsehood and the pure bliss of our core self, which is Love. 

Be your Heart. Not your Mind. 

Be your true potential in 2024.
