Number One : "Wholeness, Unity"
Number Two: "Polarity" - from the opposite ends of things
Number Three : "Connectedness" - from the linkage of opposites. The number three has the connective middle. This is thus the number of days to transition between states in ancient legal codes.

Number Four: "Earth" - from the four cardinal directions, the "ends of the earth," The four winds, etc.
Number Five: "Humanity" - from the five appendages of humans (2 arms, 2 legs, 1 head). As a five pointed star it represents humanity, when put into the bounded yet infinite circle it represents the divine-human connection as the Pentacle.
Number Six: Both realms of Nature or the "Totality" - from the complete filling of flat space by a hexagon and the filling of 3-D space by a six sided cube. Six chambers are found in vegetables like tomatoes and peppers. Quartz crystals and snow flakes have six sides. The cardinal directions of 3-D space are six. As two triangles a six pointed star is the Gateway Star which represents the union of mother earth and father sky.
Number Seven: "Divine" - from the number of planetary spheres or heavens in ancient times. (sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn). They were deified and given a day of the week in order of their perceived distance from earth. We still have Sun-day, Moon-day (Monday) and Saturn-day (Saturday). Also the Pleiades star cluster which was known as the seven sisters in ancient times. It was visible above the horizon between Samhain and Imbolc so it defined the earthly winter season and harvest times for the ancients. (Sparavigna) (Antonello)
Number Eight: "Luck" - from the balance inherent in the Divine - This meaning comes from its shape as two circles which individually represent bounded infinity. Bounded infinity is a divine principle. Divine balance produces luck because fortune can shift easily either way.
