You will have an extremely busy life with the best results brought about through perseverance.  The fact that you have to wait to reap the fruit of your actions will be forgotten in the growing responsibilities which will inevitably be assumed.  It will be conservative methods which will prove advantageous.  As regards financial matters, gain will be slow and is  not likely to be achieved through speculation.  Older people will prove to be helpful.  As regards occupation, real estate, insurance, building, mining, heavy industries will prove beneficial.

Special observation about number 8

It has been observed in the study of numerology that those who are governed by the number 8 are always haunted by this number.  This number goes on establishing its dominance in the career of the individual and this number will always recur on several important occasions.  For instance, supposing you start writing an important letter, you will find that the date is 8th, 17th or 26th of the month.  If you enter into a contract or purchase a new car or a house, the date will be usually in the series of 4 or 8.  As a general rule, number 8 indicates delays and difficulties in life  though it has other positive and good qualities.  You will find that the events that have taken place on these days have created hardships or obstacles in your progress.  In that case it is better to avoid these dates while deciding upon important moves and instead you should select dates in the series 3 or 7.

I have observed that those two are born in April and August (4th and 8th month) and also have dates in the series of 4 and 8 have children who are dominated by either of the two numbers.  At least one of the children is born in these series.

An interesting experience of delay shown by the number 8

Once a retired person called on me and informed me that he had retired three years back but still he had not got his pension and his case was not finalized even after three years.  In fact, he was working as an officer in the same department where pension matters were settled.  He had visited his office several times during the last three years and every time his juniors in that office promised to settle the case within a week's time.   He then asked me when his case would be settled and he would get his pension.  In Numerology there is a system with the help of which we can solve such questions.  I just asked him to write down his question and after his doing so, the question was solved in the numerical way and the final digit arrived at was 8.  I immediately informed him that the number indicated delay and he would have to wait for some time more to get his pension but how long could not be predicted.

For the next two years he used to visit me and the delay shown by the number 8 was really trying his patience.  After about a year thereafter he called on me with a packet of sweets and gave me the happy news that he had received his pension.  But till the last moment number 8 played the delaying game and the old man had to go to Bombay to take his pension when he was informed that it had been sent to Poona by money order only two days earlier.  After returning to Poona, he was told that the money order had been returned to Bombay office.  This is really an extraordinary case.

Important Note.

1.  You should do all your important work on your lucky days and also lucky dates.  You may try your luck in lottery by purchasing a ticket where the total of the all numbers works out to your lucky number or where the last digit is your lucky number.
