In Christian mysticism eight is associated with resurrection and eternal life; a theme Waite refers to in The Pictorial Key. He also says: "But she is in reality the Great Mother in the Kabalistic Sephira Binah, which is supernal Understanding, who communicates to the Sephiroth that are below in the measure that they can receive her influx." If you start at the bottom of the Tree of Life and go up, Binah is the eighth Sephira; it's also the first one you come to after crossing the "Abyss."
