Eight is always connected with Four—since it is the “double” of Four, and also seems to be a lucky number. Eight is the symbol of Saturn and is always connected with “Karma.” Fight-people are often misunderstood, but tend to be loners widi a tendency to fanaticism. They are often unfairly seen as emotionally cold and unapproachable, because the Eight does not like to show emotions. Eight-people are achievers, industrious, and dynamic, keeping an eye on success in every situation.
The sheer amount of energy they invest in their goals can turn into ruthlessness and combativeness.
In general, behind the number Eight might be elements of death and rebirth, the moving downward of the lower part so that the upper part can move upward. But the Eight may also be a symbol of the highest point of development from which something new can be created—because after reaching the summit, the old can’t develop any furdier.
The number Eight often stands for decay and procreation. See Saturn.
Eight-people have birthdays on the 8th, 17th, and 26th of the month.... Dreamers Dictionary

After spiritual matters have been made manifest, great abundance is possible. Eight is the number of infinity and all that it implies. This includes wealth of every kind: love, money, bliss, joy, and every amazing experience life has to offer.
The concept of infinity states that there is no limitation in the universe, that time and space continue forever and ever in a way that is beyond our ability to truly comprehend. When an understanding of infinity and abundance are combined, there is a realization that there is an endless supply of anything you could possibly desire, even those things that you perceive as limited and unavailable to you. Eight is the magic of seven in action.
The shadow side of this is greed, hoarding, and withholding love.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Are you weak in your dreams or so strong you can manage any physical feat required of you? If you are feeling weak, a medical check-up might be required, but it could also suggest that you feel somehow less than perfect in waking life and unable to accomplish what is required of you. Dreams in which you simply can’t keep up with the action or are outrun by the bogey man are experienced more frequently as you age, and may well be your dreaming mind’s way of helping you adjust to the natural aging process.
If your dreams often feature themes of illness or loss of strength and you are concerned by these, see your doctor by all means; the chances are, however, that you feel unable to meet some internal or external commands in waking life. In your dreams, your unmet goals and high standards are making you ill. But dreams in which you have boundless energy and physical power seem to be telling you that you are capable of far more than you realize. In some cases, as with people who are seriously ill or disabled, dreams of extraordinary energy and good health are compensatory or wish- fulfillment dreams.
If, in your dream, you are weak because you have lost weight, this can suggest concern about body image but it can also indicate possessive, demanding behavior from the people in your life. Conversely, gaining weight and strength may show an excessive need for their approval and a childish need for instant gratification. Finally, if other people are watching either your feats of strength or growing weakness in your dream, this suggests that you are preoccupied with themes of competition.

(1) Height may symbolize level of achievement.
(2) The greater the height, the more panoramic the view. Are you getting your personal problem(s) in perspective; taking a more detached, less emotional view of things?
(3) The symbolism may be that of‘ascension’ or ‘resurrection’ - that is, transcending your present or former self towards a new and richer state of being.
(4) Are you afraid - in your dream - of falling? This probably represents either fear of failure; or a warning that ‘pride comes before a fall’, and that you should not strive for what is beyond your reach, because it is not appropriate to your real nature. Concentrate instead on self-discovery, so that your endeavours will be in tune with the fundamental structure of your individual psyche.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
A dream about high elevation may signify reaching the zenith of one’s career or achieving some other high objective.
If one fears heights in a dream, then one may be striving for things that seem beyond their reach. Such a dream can also relate to other concepts associated with height, such as being “above it all.”... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
If you dream of being at a great height, it is a warning to avoid getting involved with a person or a group who you know are not good enough for you. Otherwise you will suffer major embarrassment. Also see “Vertigo.”... My Dream Interpretation
You need to get a higher vantage point in order to achieve some objectivity in some area of your life. This higher perspective also offers you a higher level of consciousness.
The higher your vantage point, the more expansive your view of your environment will be. This takes on the symbolic meaning of expanded consciousness.
The higher your level of thought, the more enlightened you are considered to be. This is so because there is a correlation between expanded consciousness and making positive, life- affirming choices. In simpler terms, the more you see, the more you know.
The more you know, the more informed you can be about your choices. This expansion, however, comes with a caveat. Choosing to live at higher levels of consciousness brings with it a great deal of responsibility.
The higher you go, the farther you can fall should you lose your footing.
The greatest issue here is whether your fear of falling from a great height is real or imagined. Even the most precarious precipice is safe as long as you practice stillness. However, stillness is perhaps the greatest challenge in the human experience.
The key to understanding this symbol is relativity.
The roof of a small building will afford you a view of everything that is near it. Conversely, being up in space can afford a view of the entire world.
The greater the height, the higher the level of consciousness being expressed. Your emotional experience of that height in your dream must color the interpretation you assign it.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

The three cases represent the three aspects of our personality: the upper case represents our higher or spiritual self, the middle case our mental and social approach to life, and the lower case our physical aptitudes and attitudes.

The middle case is the central region occupied by letters with neither long up strokes nor down strokes, such as a, c, e, m, n, o, etc. The lower case is the area occupied by down stroke letters such as g, j, p, etc. Look where the emphasis of the writing is as this is where the emphasis of the personality lies....

Three is tense, dynamic, rhythmic, and complete (the Holy Trinity). Three is a symbol of the spirit, since it is assigned to the third stage of human consciousness (after the physical and emotional). In the Middle East, three is considered a holy number.
It is always connected to time: past, present, future. In ancient Rome the Fates almost always appear as three goddesses. Since ancient times femininity has been seen in three aspects: the virgin (Artemis), the woman (Hera), and the old woman (Hekate). Faust calls out three times until Mephisto appears. Peter denies Christ three times. Doing the same thing three times has magical effects— it represents the connection to reality.
According to Freud, refers to male genitalia. Jung considers three a mystical number; the three servants of the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute; the three witches in Macbeth; the three wishes that are free. All this relates back, as do many god-trinities, to the original trinity: father-mother-son.
It is the male child, since the number three, according to Western tradition, is uneven and, as a prime number, a genuine male number. In this tradition, the male child is seen first in terms of male fertility.
According to Jung, the number three is connected to the diabolical.
The den of craving in alchemy is depicted by a three-headed snake.
The three-headed snake in mythology is always Satan. Also, according to Jung, three belongs to the young; and in ancient China and the Greek patriarchy, it points to masculine attributes and their function.
On the other hand, Three as a feminine number is part of the tradition in the area of the Mediterranean, through the veneration of Mary in Catholicism and the rediscovery of the matriarchy. Also, Goethe’s play Faust, Part II, ends with a prayer to the great goddess appearing threefold: “Virgin, Mother, Queen.”... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Three refers to something combative and masculine. Religions see in the number Three the trinity (God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost). Wherever the Three appears there is also energy. Three is an effective, holy, but also dangerous number. In many dreams Three announces that «jme- thing new is happening—when, for instance, you look at a watch or clock in your dream and it is 3 o’clock. Three is the number of Jupiter. Three-people strive for success, but will follow instructions from a boss without complaining. They earn* out assignments responsibly and are very ambitious.
The Three-person is creative and steadfast, loves partying, dancing, and being in love. Three-ness produces all things.
In general, Three always points to something new that is created from things that have already existed. Negatives and positives can be united—in the external as well as in your personality. It could possibly indicate a desire to have a child (two want to create something new), or might start a new business or a new project together with other people. See Jupiter.

(1) The number three may symbolize completeness and fulfilment; or anything that may contribute to your personal fulfilment - for example, the resolving of conflict between two opposing psychic forces.
(2) Jung says three may signify that something is nearly but not quite complete; or that what is lacking in you can be supplied only by some part of your unconscious self that you find too frightening to acknowledge and use. (Even God, he says, is not complete without the Devil.) See also Four.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
When two are gathered, eventually their energy will create a new element, and a third is born. Three is the number of creativity and is a powerful energy. There are many examples of the concept of three: mother, father, and child is perhaps the most universal.
The Holy Trinity in Catholicism is another instance.
The artist, the paint, and the finished work is just one case that can be applied to any creative endeavor. In music, a triad is the simplest and perhaps most pleasing harmony. In the world of geometry, it is only when you have three points to work with that you can create an actual shape.
The shadow challenge of three is a lack of grounding and separation from reality. This is because three relates so strongly to the drive to create that feeling unable to do so would be the fear-based side of this energy.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
