fanatic

A fanatic was initially ‘one who was inspired by god’, zealous in all he did in the service of his god. Only later did this become debased into the more negative meaning of someone who has no sense of respect for physical life. It is, unfortunately, this latter interpretation that surfaces in many of today’s dreams.

Psychological / emotional perspective: When we find ourselves in dreams being totally focused to the point of fanaticism on a particular outcome it is perhaps wise to consider and appraise our commitments.

Material aspects: Without determination and tenacity many tasks cannot be completed. Dreaming of a known fanatic or act of fanaticism can help us to complete our projects. You might also like to consult the entry for martyr.

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.
