The symbolism backing number Eight deals largely with business, success, and wealth. This is due to the fact that Eight represents continuation, repetition, and cycles. Such elements are seen in arenas where success is obtained simply because of dogged determination and repetition. Also, matters of business and wealth largely depend on cycles to fulfill their manifestation. It's like the snowball analogy: As it continues to roll, in gets bigger and bigger with each revolution. Eight represents that kind of momentum.
The number eight in context of Chinese meaning of numbers represents a feeling of inclusion. Eights are a product of all the numbers that have preceded it, all bundled up in a tight, revolutionary package of balance. This kind of supernatural balance is personified by the eight Xian (Chinese term for spiritually evolved, enlightened, or immortal). Legend states these eight immortals were first humans who overcame the worldly challenges and confines to evolve into spiritual advanced beings. I rather think that's what the path of eight does. The Chinese deem number eight as a number of initiations and spiritual ascension because eights represent the forces within the world of phenomenon. To the Chinese mind, number eight has that "anything is possible" feel to it. The Sheep is the Chinese zodiac symbol, and South/Southwest is the Feng Shui coordinate for number eight .
If we look at the meaning of the number 911 through the eyes of a numerologist, we see not one message, or two, but a range of them.
First, we look at each single digit found in the number 911.
The 9 stands for idealism, compassion, healing, sacrifice, and caring for the global community (as opposed to a small local community of family, friends, neighbors, and other tribal members). The number 9 stands for everything noble and decent. It is the Mother Theresa among the single digit numbers. However, like all numbers, there is a dark site to the nine as well. It can be arrogant, self-righteous, and fanatical.
The number 1 stands for individualism, courage, leadership, and ambition. It is the warrior among the nine archetypes. It knows no fear, will not retreat, and doesn't bend for anyone. It wants to direct and control the actions of others.
Those are the two numbers that make up 911 and their personalities are at opposite ends of the spectrum. The 9 as the Cornerstone of 911 tells me that the message is global and attempts to direct our attention to mankind as a whole, not just a single nation. It warns against fanaticism, and instead asks for tolerance and acceptance. It is not Islam that is at the core of the largest conflict facing us today, nor is it different political systems or other diversities. It is religious fanaticism, narrow-mindedness, and the cold heart of the zealot.
And we should not forget, that the state of mind of our enemy is surprisingly similar to our own. All you need to do is change a few details to create a mirror image. Imagine, for example, what the United States would look like today if the government, the military, education, and the judicial system had been under full control of the Baptist church for many generations. We would have a nation not that different from those we are fighting today.
The number 1 appears in 911 twice, and it has a message very different from the 9. We are asked to honor and value the individual. No number pays homage to life the way the number 1 does; it gives full value to each and every human life; everyone counts.
Like body guards, the two numbers 1 stand behind the 9 in 911. As if protecting everything the 9 represents. The 1 is an aggressive number, but in this case, it plays a submissive role. The 9 is the guiding number. The 1 is its protector.
When we add the 9, the 1, and again a 1, we get 11.
As the sum of the number 911, the 11 reveals what we are left with when all is said and done. The 11 is one of three double-digit numbers that are considered Master Numbers in numerology (as are the 22 and the 33), and is the most sensitive, feminine, and subtle of all numbers. The 11 in this context tells us that when this conflict has come to pass, the qualities of the 11 are our true reward, in the form of a new era influenced strongly by a global sense of brotherhood and sisterhood, of similarities as opposed to differences, of tact and sensitivity versus brutal force and intolerance. But first, we have some challenges to overcome.
The symbolic meaning of number Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of all things. Consider the four seasons, four directions, four elements all these amazingly powerful essences wrapped up in the nice square package of Four. Fours represent solidity, calmness, and home. A recurrence of Four in your life may signify the need to get back to your roots, center yourself, or even "plant" yourself. Fours also indicate a need for persistence and endurance.
I get the feeling of guardianship, structure and grounded-ness in the collective of Chinese meaning of numbers. Indeed, number four is symbolic of Earth to Chinese philosophy and the square (with its four points) is the Chinese symbol for earth. It is also connected with the four cardinal points who are represented in China by four spiritually gifted guardians: The Dragon, Unicorn, Kylin, and Phoenix. They guard the cosmic order of things, and insure stability is maintained in the universe. Taking that concept of mitosis (touched on the number Two entry), we see further division of individuality here, and a settling into the knowledge of how things work. This is an extension of that feeling of security. The number four augurs a concrete sense of things. We begin to find our home in the energy of four. The Chinese zodiac symbol for number four is the Rabbit, and east is its direction in Feng Shui.

13 has to do with revolution i think.
See "The Karmic Debt Numbers." Hard work and slow progress, this Karmic Debt number is difficult but rewarding when enough effort is applied. Grounded and down-to-earth. Reliable, trustworthy, but sometimes rigid and lacking a sense of humor.
