- 8-9 or 9-8 Couplet: The 8-9 Couplet marries ‘transformation’ with ‘expansion’ which most often means either the expanding atmosphere or an expansion of knowledge. Implied is that there is room to grow or room to expand.
DHARMIC: The literal and dharmic meaning of the 8-9 Couplet is ‘powerful freedom’ or ‘powerful independence’. Spiritually, we have all been given ‘freedom of choice’ or ‘free will’. What we do with it builds either dharma or karma. But the gift is spiritual. Using our free will to benefit others is dharmic.
