A master of staid emotions, you sometimes give the impression of being too serious and regulated. This veneer helps to conceal an over-developed sense of vulnerability, privacy, and timidity. Your cool demeanor acts like armor, keeping all but those you choose to trust neatly at arm's length.
That serious nature serves you well in business or in the arts. As long as you can forge out your own path and follow your bliss, you'll be very content and successful. The difficulty comes when you're constrained by other people's regulations. Usually stubbornness rears its head, and from that point forward there's no end of head butting.
Inside, you have an amazing capacity to visualize and daydream. A quiet voice calls to you, whispering of adventure and freedom, and your active imagination answers that call. The only caution is that you must learn to draw the line between what is truly possible and the stuff of dreams. Thankfully those two sides are neatly balanced by today's numerological overtones. Number 8 strives for keeping both feet on the ground. So while you dream, you also have the power to manifest.
Gift idea: a nicely crafted pen and pencil set or PDA.
