Shock and Awe Celebrities - Are You Suffering from the Dare-Devil Syndrome?

What do Lady Gaga, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna have in common? They all have double 8’s in their date of birth which is also referred to as the dare-devil syndrome. All of these celebs have doled out their fair share of shock and awe over the years and that’s just what this combination of digits brings to the table.


As a numerologist, I’m always analyzing the world through numbers and it really it a science rather than a metaphysical art. Numbers (mathematics) are just another way to see the unseen. Think of your date of birth as spiritual DNA. It can show you who you are on the inside. From the perspective of quantum physics, the world is made up of energetic patterns that can be translated and understood through the language of numbers. I’m one to need a lot of fact with my faith and I can attest to accuracy of the science of numbers after having studied numerical patterns for over 11 years.

The double 8’s is a whopper when it comes to number patterns. Anyone carrying this pattern within their energetic makeup lives for the thrill of the experience or of life in general. It’s all about how something makes them feel. They are off-the-cuff people who tend to suffer from leap-before-thinking behaviors. I have a friend with double 8’s that I love to travel with because you never know what she’ll do next. One minute she’s walking beside you and the next you turn around to find her engaged in a lively conversation on the sidewalk with a complete stranger. It makes for exciting travels, to say the least.

The darker side of the double 8’s is that the need for the intensity of feeling (8 is the most active soul plane number) can lead them into risky behaviors like volatile relationships, drugs and alcohol abuse, attention-seeking, and reckless behaviors in general. They are also some of the most accident prone people because of their lack of hesitation to take risks and chances.


The good news is that like any pattern, you can change it and the double 8’s can be tamed. Interestingly, even though they don’t seem to give too much thought into anything before doing it, 8 is also the number of wisdom. In multiples, 8 gives a sense of knowing (intuition) meaning on some level these dare-devils know exactly what they’re doing. They just rarely take heed to that inner voice inside.

One of the reasons the performers listed in the beginning of this article have been so successful at what they do is because they live through the double 8’s, which is the last number on the soul plane. They’re heart-felt and passionate because it’s all about soulful expression. As humans, we’re thinking (mind plane), feeling (soul plane) or doing (physical plane) something at any given time but when you’re got an overabundance of a particular category of numbers, you tend to live through those most often. For Mother Monster, Madge, MJ, Xtina and RiRi, they never fail to put on a heck of a show, pouring their heart and soul into it.

If you or someone you love has the dare-devil syndrome (aka double 8’s), rest assured that you’ll never get them to sit still to contemplate much but do encourage them to listen to that ever-present inner voice. It’s all about the feeling realm for them so you’ll need to communicate in the language of the heart and soul. Logic has no place in the realm of feeling which anyone with double 8’s will show you.
