In old metaphysical studies, the number Eight was associated with Saturn - father, and superstitiously counted as symbol of Evil. Number Eight is made of two circles - one for a man, and one - for God. Together these two circles create the symbol of infinity. Today we know, that 8 is the number of the Sun ( and therefore the God), and that Saturn is not the embodiment of evil.

EIGHT of Clubs: The Card of MENTAL POWER The Eight of Clubs is one of the three, "fixed" cards. With their strong mental power, they are not easily swayed by others' views and opinions. Many successful attorneys, chemical engineers and rocket scientists are Eight of Clubs, however their power can be applied to any of the mental fields with great success. Their life path is one of the most successful in the deck. They can almost anything they set their mind to achieving and most attain wealth and prominence but they must make sure their life is kept in balance as mental peace is essential. They have much psychic power and can be great healers. All of their gifts can be applied to attain great success and they only need to become aware of their true goals to have a life of success and accomplishment. However, being so fixed has its own drawbacks, mainly that it is difficult for them to deal with changes. Working with a Jack of Hearts or King of Spades will bring far reaching success. For best results, they should let their work come before their personal lives and keep them separate.

The Ace of Clubs, Two of Hearts, Seven of Diamonds, Nine of Hearts - You also share karmic bonds with these cards, but not as strong as the first two. You will often find people of these cards in your life.

EIGHT of Clubs: When the 8 of Clubs are able to clarify their objectives, they always go straight towards them and attain them. It's getting to that point of clarity, which can be a problem. Through the "power of knowledge" - the natural heritage of the 8 of Clubs - they can overcome all obstacles and attain any desire. In many ways, Eight of Clubs people are like cats that always land on their feet. Protection surrounds them in all departments of life and yet it is this very blessing that is also their biggest bugaboo. Eight of Clubs must strive for mental balance and compassion. They have very strong emotions and fixed ideas that can become overpowering. Especially when they try to dominate the lives of those they love. http://www.metasymbology.com/
