The direct features of the 5 and 8 are change in business, but there are also aspects to the 5/8 combo.
5 - Change, movement & drama? Yes.
8 is also about government, military, and the judicial system. 8s are great in this area because they typically have the ability to make "On the Spot" decisions - right or wrong. They enjoy the feeling of being in charge and making sure it's carried out.
We are in a time of unrest in regards to governmental structures. And the 11 attitude says, "I'm doing this for the good of all" (whether that be true or now - an attitude is the facade we hide behind in public). Today, many will find themselves focusing on this topic while others will actually take to the streets. Some will only read about it and form their own opinions.
There are those who believe we should throw rainbows at all negativity and pretend things are not happening. Personally, I do not believe that is wise to do. We do not have to integrate it into our lives to the point that it creates a negative environment for ourselves, but we have right to acknowledge that it exists, and what shall our responsibility be to it? After all, we will reap the benefits (negative or positive) of the results being created by those who are most active.
Today, we are given the ability to hold onto the 8 and take responsibility for our future, whether it be personal or community oriented. Today, we are the change we wish to see in the world.
