What It Means When Angel Number 888 Enters Your Life

If you've ever been unable to ignore the continued presence of a repeating number popping up in your life, everywhere from the digital clock to your receipt total at the coffee shop, then you may have wondered whether or not the numbers were a coincidence. Some would say they surely aren't and actually hold a specific spiritual symbolism. Angel numbers are sequences in numerology that are believed to carry a special message to us when we most need to hear it.

"Seeing a repeating number is like your angel pointing to you and making you feel seen and heard," Megan Michaela Firester, aura reader, psychic medium, host of "Know Your Aura," and author of "What's My Aura?" told Well+Good. "They are trying to get your attention, and the numbers they send have meanings. Think of it like a little marker saying that you are on the right path in life, like a highway sign." When it comes to angel number 888, the universe is letting you know that you'll soon be reaping the fruit of your labor and that you're in alignment with your true purpose, as per Tiny Rituals. Plus, eight is the symbol of infinity and carries an energy of expansive possibility. If 888 has been appearing in your life, buckle up for a turn of good luck and prosperity.

The angel number signifies an abundance of love and wealth

The angel number 888 reminds us to shift out of a scarcity mindset and into one of abundance, especially when it comes to love and prosperity, according to Tiny Rituals. Seeing this sequence means you are in a flow state, and if you are seeking love, this could be the time it shows up — or if you're already partnered, a deeper level of intimacy will open to you. It can also signify a period of positive change and entering the realm of possibility you previously had not imagined for yourself, particularly in the realm of love. "It comes down to, 'Is this what you think you deserve?'" Elizabeth Summers, esoteric numerologer, told USA Today.

The number 888 symbolizes success, whether that pertains to reaching new goals in your career and financial status or simply maintaining the level of financial stability you've been seeking. The angel number is also governed by Saturn, who doesn't mess around when it comes to power, according to Summers via USA Today.

888 reminds us to stay in alignment, so we don't miss our blessings

Being a cooperative component in your joy and success is essential. If the universe is showering you with blessings and you've got your focus on a single aspect of your life that isn't yet where you'd like it to be, you may lose momentum, and the prosperity will pass you by. Being present and choosing to see the best in others and situations will always propel you closer to your blessings.

"Stay open to abundance in whatever form it appears, not just the forms we expect or have become attached to," professional intuitive Tanya Carroll Richardson told mindbodygreen. In other words, if you're desperately focused on a missing relationship while simultaneously being showered with good fortune in the realm of career or friendship, you're negating some beautiful blessings. So, next time you begin to notice 888 in your life, take it as a reminder to zoom out and receive the prosperity — in whichever form it manifests.
