Figure 8 has long been revered by the Chinese as it signifies endless or continuous prosperity. This belief is closely associated with the sound of 8, “Fatt”, which means Prosperity and Abundance. Also, figure 8 looks like the universal symbol of Infinity. Therefore, putting these two together, we have the symbolic meaning of “Endless Prosperity”.
The 88 symbols are used universally to help create a flow of energy and unblock stagnant chi. Figure 8 is also a Remedial Symbol, to help balance occupants, when negative symbols or a bad Feng Shui house, affect them. The use of Two Eights just doubles the auspicious significance and effectiveness of the cure.
