What does angel number 8888 mean?

Angel numbers are communications from our angels — our higher spirits that connect us to the greater universe, protect us on our journeys, and show us hidden paths that we might not take on our own.

Angel numbers are repeating numbers, like 8888, that are believed to contain hidden meaning, encoded by the angels themselves.

This belief in the power of numbers is a type of numerology, or the belief that numbers correspond to real-life events. One of the more well-known, historical forms of numerology is called gematriya, also known as Hebrew numerology, where letters of the Hebrew alphabet are substituted for numbers.

Then, words are translated into numbers, and special meanings are divined from the resulting number.

The most famous example of gematria is the translation of Emperor Nero’s name into the number 666, called The Mark of the Beast in The Book of Revelation.

Angel Number 8888 is built up of repetitions of the number 8 itself, so it is important to first look at the building blocks of this number.

The number 8 is considered lucky in many cultures, particularly Eastern Asian cultures, as it signifies wealth and prosperity.

In Western Cultures, the number 8 is often associated with infinity, and rebirth.

When the number repeats, such as 88, 888, 8888, you magnify the strength of the number itself.

For the angel number 8888, this means abundance, wealth, and good fortune. This is a blessed number.

What is important to note, however, is that the number 8888 is a karmic number, meaning that this blessing isn’t randomly given. When you see the number 8888, it means a blessing is around the corner, as long as you act with generosity and kindness.

Think of seeing the number 8888 as a sign that the ground is fertile. Plant your crops here. Water your plants here. They will grow, they will be fruitful, they will multiply.

6 reasons that you keep seeing the angel number 8888

So you keep seeing the number 8888, and you keep seeing repetitions of the number 8 floating around. Why is that? What are the reasons that you keep seeing angel number 8888?

1) Your angels are nudging you

The primary reason you see angel number 8888 is that your angels are nudging you to take a path that wouldn’t necessarily be clear to you, had the number 8888 not arrived.

NEW QUIZ: At the heart of everything you do, think, and feel is your spiritual archetype. Find out your spiritual archetype in our fun new quiz. Take it here.

Since the angel number 8888 signifies prosperity, wealth, and stability, your angels may be nudging you to a decision that could lead to prosperity and stability. Think about this, are there options in your life you could take that could lead to a reversal of fortune. Perhaps you’re vacillating between staying in a dead-end job or taking a gamble on going back to school.

If you see the number 8888 in this case, it would mean that taking a chance will lead to prosperity. Embrace it!

2) You need to commit

Do you have your toe in the water, but not your whole self? Maybe you’ve been seeing someone and you’ve really clicked, but you haven’t mustered the courage to go exclusive. Or, perhaps, you’ve been fiddling around with investing in a passion project — a book, a small business, learning a language — but you haven’t fully committed yourself to it.

This is the sign that your spiritual ground is fertile. Commit your efforts, go for it. Plant your spiritual seeds, water your crops. Invest, and you will be abundantly rewarded.

Note, by invest, I mean to invest your energy. I am not talking about investing strategies, such as buying stock. I’m just a writer, not an analyst. Don’t take your stock advice from angel numbers, take it from earnings numbers!

3) You need to sow good karma

8888 is considered a karmic number, meaning that your blessing is often contingent upon both the right choices and the right behaviors. So, you’ve decided that you want to commit to this relationship. That’s great. But, you should also commit to good behaviors that will allow this relationship to bloom.

Be respectful. Be generous and loving. Put in love, and you will gain more love.

4) Your suffering will soon be over

Angel number 8888 is sometimes known as the light at the end of the tunnel. When we are experiencing true hardship, it can sometimes be really hard to keep pushing forward, and we can forget that there are better days ahead.

Have you been broken up with recently? Has a loved one passed away? Did you lose your job?

Seeing angel number 8888 can be a sign that you need to keep the faith. You need to press forward, and trust that the universe has your back. Your angels are the wind at your sails, the wind beneath your wings. Don’t give up now. Just press forward, and trust that there will be good right around the corner.

Importantly, this doesn’t mean to keep banging your head against a wall. If, for example, you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, this doesn’t mean, “oh, stick with it, and it’ll be good again.” No, if you’re in a bad situation where leaving that situation will improve your life, then you need to take 8888 as a sign that you need to get out now!

5) You need to be grateful

8888 is the angel number that signifies prosperity. Sometimes, seeing angel number 8888 doesn’t mean that prosperity is coming, but that you have already been blessed with prosperity.

Take a look around. How are your finances? Not bad? Pretty good? How’s your job? Your home? Your family?

If things seem pretty good — if your general answer is, “gee, I don’t think I can complain,” then you need to take stock in that. Think about how much better your situation is than the vast majority of people on the planet. Be grateful for that! Sit with that gratitude.

Be happy! Enjoy that blessing, and give thanks to the angels, your God(s), and the universe for your blessings.

6) You need to give back

If you take stock of your life and see that it’s even better than, “I can’t complain,” but it’s much more like, “I have an overabundance of blessings,” then angel number 8888 signifies that you should give back.

Like I said earlier, if you have an abundance, then you have more than the vast majority of people on this planet. You’ve been blessed, and you should show your gratitude by blessing others in return.

How can you give back?

One of the simplest ways is to give to charity. There are literally thousands of charities out there that fund all sorts of passions and projects. Figure out what you firmly believe in, and then give to that charity if you can. If your money situation isn’t as abundant, but you have a lot of time and talent available, then consider volunteering.

You can volunteer at the typical places, such as food banks, shelters, kitchens, and political campaigns; or you could volunteer at places that are a little closer to your community, such as your kid’s school, a community theatre, or a neighborhood park.

I mentioned before that 8888 is a karmic number, meaning that the blessings are often contingent upon choosing the right path and exhibiting the right behaviors. Well, if 8888 signifies that you’ve already been blessed, then 8888 also may signify that it is your time to push good karma out into the universe.

Consider it a sign that it’s your obligation to create the good karma that others will use when they are feeling low!

Angel Number 8888 in love

Angel number 8888 in love is a very positive sign that indicates transformative happiness is coming to your relationship. If you have been seeing someone, but haven’t become exclusive, this is the time to commit. If you two have committed, but only been going out for a few months, this is the time that you will forge a connection on a deeper level.

If you have been together for a long time now, this may be the time that engagement will occur.

If you’re single and looking for love, this is a symbol that a real and lasting relationship is right around the corner. It may also be a sign that you’ve been looking for love in the wrong places, so don’t be opposed to trying out different ways to meet that special someone.

No matter the stage of your relationship, angel number 8888 signifies happiness and prosperity in your relationship. Rejoice! Embody the prosperity you wish to see, and it will surely arrive.

Angel number 8888 for twin flames

Angel number 8888 has twins within it, the number 88 twice. 88 itself has the twins of 8 and 8. The compounded nature of the number holds special meaning for twin flames.

Twin flames on the rocks

If you and your twin flame have been going through a rocky period, seeing the angel number 8888 signifies that there is still hope! It is an invitation to turn your rocky relationship around.

But, it is not a symbol that help will fall from above.

Instead, it is a message that both of you must work together to restore your twin flame relationship. One twin flame cannot carry the load alone. Instead, you must break down the walls blocking your union, and then create open channels of love and communication to re-deepen your twin flame relationship.

Twin flames in separation

Twin flames don’t always stay together. The breakup between twin flames can be anguishing, as it feels like a part of you has gone — that you on your own are only half of a whole.

Seeing 8888 when you are a twin flame in separation signifies that it is time for spiritual introspection. It is a sign that you, on your own, are whole — are enough. If your twin flame has left you, or you have left your twin flame, then you need to take the angel number 8888 as a sign that you are whole, and that you will prosper again.

Breakups are hard for both parties. Take angel number 8888 as a sign that the angels see your struggle, and that they are encouraging you to keep moving forward, that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and you will feel whole once more.

Spiritual meaning of angel number 8888

The spiritual meaning of angel number 8888 is divined in the number 8, repeated 4 times. 8, as mentioned, is a lucky number that signifies wealth and prosperity.

The repetition of 8 four times increases its strength, creating a profound, compound angel number that shows prosperity, stability, and great happiness are in your future.

Angel number 8888 is a form of spiritual guidance as opposed to spiritual protection. It should be taken as a sign. If you feel that you are in need of protection, take the angel number 8888 as a sign that you need to leave your current situation immediately.

View it as a warning, not a shield.

Biblical meaning of angel number 8888

The number eight crops up a few times in the Bible in interesting ways.

The number eight is often associated with Jesus through a few ways. First, it is acknowledged that Jesus rose on the first day of a new week, and a week has seven days. This was taken to mean that Christ rose on the eighth day, which is seen as the re-creation of the first day.

Confusing? Well, think of it like an octave. Music notes go CDEFGABC. Those are eight notes. But wait, C is repeated twice. C is the first note, C is the eighth note. The resurrection, the eighth day, is a re-creation of the first day, the creation. It’s the harmony.

The number 888 is also, in gematria, a transliteration of Jesus’s name, showing that it stands in opposition with 666, the mark of the beast. If the devil is 666, God the creator is 777, then Christ the redeemer is 888.

8 sometimes is referenced as the number of authors of the new testament, but this is probably legend more than fact. Why is that? Well, it doesn’t account for two things: the book of Hebrews has no attributed author, and The Book of Revelation may or may not be written by the same man who wrote The Gospel of John.

So, maybe there are 8 authors. Maybe there are 10. Your mileage may vary.
