The 8s stand for movement. Fire also means action and movement and here, in the 8 of Wands, we see 8 wands pointing to the bottom right of the card (Waite calls them the "arrows of love".
This signifies that the energy of the wands has reached a satisfactory conclusion. Projects and situations have come to a satisfactory conclusion.
In a reading, this can be interpreted that it is time to conclude what you are doing. Also, that now is the time to declare yourself. It can also mean the arrival of news or new information.
