Today we’re going to dive into the meaning of the number eight and come up with one or two ideas for things we can say in a Lo Shu reading.
8 = Inspiration
When the number 8 comes up as something to discuss, we know it means Inspiration, but how does that apply to a person?
First of all, when I think of the word “inspiration” I think of the kind of person who is always coming up with ideas. An inventor, maybe, or a detective. Someone who can take separate thoughts or objects, and combine them to come up with something nobody else thought of.
So if a person has inspiration as a trait, what kind of person are they? I think they’re passionate with a strong sense of purpose. They’re creative and can think outside the box. They are persevering: Inspirational people may have faced significant obstacles in their own lives, but they have found a way to overcome them and can encourage others to do the same.
Tip: Watch for people who have 6/Communication and 8/Inspiration — those people have the new ideas and can convince others to get behind them. Give those people problems to solve!
Your homework: Once again, do some brainstorming and see if you can come up with more ideas about someone with the Inspiration character trait. Then write up a couple sentences that you could say during a reading. You don’t need to memorize them, but if you write them out they’ll be much easier to recall when you’re doing an actual reading.
Inspiration to others, able to relate to people on all others, reach out to others and encourage them to overcome obstacles, with a ‘ a do’ attitude. Show empathy to those facing problems that they themselves have experienced and overcome. They are confident and excellent at communicating. Full of ideas often non traditional as they think outside the box.
