Yes, we are back in the powerful 8-vibration for 2024

Gold Background, Number 8, 2024 is an 8-Year, Infinite Potential, and the major themes of the 8The 8-vibration is about:

Abundance, Power, Appreciation, Prosperity, Recognition, Success, Leadership, Fame, Wealth, Problem-solving, Organizing, Potential, and Material Mastery.


According to numerology, we live our lives in a series of 9-year cycles, each building upon the last as we spiral into our understanding of self. 

The previous Universal 8-Year was in 2015.


The balancing act with the 8-vibration is often between

following Ego and listening to Spirit.

The 8 brings together the resources of heaven (spirit plane) and earth (material plane)… harnessing the powers of the 8 while allowing Spirit to drive creates a state of Material Mastery.

The 8 teaches that true success and an abundant life comes when you allow yourself to be guided by spirit.

Remember, when you act from ego, you draw in the lower essence, or shadow aspects, of the 8 vibration. While you might succeed in gaining money, success, and recognition, it will come with a price, and you may not enjoy what you have achieved.

When you look at the 8 on its side, you’ll notice it is an infinity symbol. Anything and everything is possible.

Since we are in the 2020 decade, in addition to whatever Universal or Personal year vibration is highlighted for the year, two other major energies run in the background, influencing you: the 2-vibration and the 0-vibration. This year (2024) you have the subtle influence of the number 4 as well.

The number 2 deals with relationships, balance, collaboration, partnership, community, polarity, and seeing things from a different perspective.

The zero (0) is Spirit. You can think of it as intuition, your higher self, or a higher power. It can also represent creative energy and the Divine Feminine. 

The number 4 is about stability, sustainability, building a strong foundation, focus, doing the work, and being responsible for yourself, your actions, and your decisions.

Keeping this in mind, the energy of 2024 will reflect your relationships with the characteristics and themes of the 8-vibration.

  • Your relationship with Power (personal and other power influences)
  • Your relationship with Prosperity and Abundance, with having and not having money, resources, and support
  • Your relationship with Recognition, being seen and heard and recognized, and Appreciation (being appreciated as well as appreciating others and what you have)
  • Your relationship with Success, Leading/Being Lead, Stepping up, showing up for yourself and the life you wish to create
  • Your relationship with being organized/disorganized and how this impacts you

Throughout 2024, we will confront our money, ego, and power issues wherever we are out of alignment with these elements or in denial.

So what can we expect to happen in an 8-year?

Well, that depends on your mindset, your beliefs, and your relationships with money, power, recognition, acknowledgment, and success.

Themes that will likely show up as we learn to master manifesting from a place of “guided by spirit” rather than controlled by ego or fear or past actions:

  • Indulgences of all kinds followed by restrictions
  • Expansions and growth followed by contractions and consolidations
  • Feast and famine across all areas
  • Challenges around being driven by Ego or guided by Spirit
  • Need for (or deflection of) recognition, acknowledgment, and appreciation
  • Internal and external power struggles of all kinds: at home, work, community, the country, the world
  • Feeling out of control and disorganized or feeling the urge to get everything organized

How this may show up for you:

  • Claiming your power, standing in your power, usurping power, giving your power away
  • The struggle between acting out from ego and making aligned choices from Spirit
  • Cash flow highs and lows… aka a money roller-coaster
  • Crashing into your money ceilings… wondering (or trying to figure out) how you can make more money and/or how you can keep more of what you make
  • Spending vs Saving money
  • Feelings of entitlement and expectation, wanting luxury
  • Feeling underserving, under-resourced, or unsupported
  • Craving attention, rejecting attention, feeling invisible
  • Wanting to be recognized, acknowledged, and appreciated for what you do
  • Learning to recognize, acknowledge, and appreciate yourself for who you are as well as what you do
  • Recognizing your mindset and beliefs around abundance and lack
  • Feeling powerful or feeling powerless; having a "can do" or "can't do" attitude, feeling empowered or disempowered

Anywhere that you are out of alignment with the 8’s vibration will show up in your life this year.

This is to help you dissolve outdated beliefs and programming. It is happening "for you"... not "to you." It's to help you thrive.

But first, you need to be aware that you have a belief, program, mindset, or pattern of behaving and thinking before you can shift it to something better.

"They say that times changes things, but you have to actually change them yourself. "

~ Andy Warhol

May you thrive and prosper being you and tapping into your infinite potential and possibilities.

With love and appreciation for you,
