What was Henry the viii aspirations?
In the sense that aspirations are meant today, it is not known if Henry VIII had any aspirations, because when he became king at the age of 15, he may have been far more modest than he was later in his reign.
Henry was not first in line for the throne and therefore was educated by prominent members of the Catholic church and tutors assigned by his father. He was treated as a prince but because his brother was to become the king, his aspirations (or more likely, his obligations in light of his position in the succession during his formative early years) may have been toward a Church position or a supporting role in his brother's anticipated reign.
However, his brother, a weak and sickly boy, died very young, whereupon Henry became Prince of Wales, first in line for the English throne.
When Henry became king at 15 he married Catherine of Aragon who was about 19. She had been sent to England from her home in Spain to marry Henry's brother. She and Edward were married shortly before the young prince died. Later, questions about Catherine's virginity arose out of that earlier marriage to Henry's brother, because Catherine lived with the very young king for a short time in their own household, which was usual in that day. The young king, a mere boy, claimed in the boastful way of boys that the marriage had been consummated. There is no evidence of that, and so whether or not that marriage was consummated became question for the ages.
Henry and Catherine were described as a happy young couple who attended jousts, feasts, religious celebrations, and entertainments, performed their church and charitable duties, danced, sang, played cards, composed and played music, and generally had a very nice life until Henry's lustful eye began to wander, whereupon Henry was happy but Catherine probably wasn't.
Later in Henry's life he faced many political problems, entered into costly and wasteful wars, and tried to create a line of Tudor succession, which became the concern that drove all his policies and actions, and that consumed him, in a very real sense. The politics of the world at that time, and England's future, demanded that a sound succession be established. As England's political enemies secured their own futures, England's remained unresolved, and Henry's frustrations grew along with his temper, while his health declined, insuring there would be no more children from him.
Henry was considered even in his own time to be a very great king. However, ironically, though he had three children, his youngest son, Edward, first in line for the throne (son of Jane Seymour) who ascended after his father's death, was a sickly boy and died quite soon.
Upon Edward's death, Henry's eldest child, Mary (daughter of depose wife Catherine of Aragon) ascended and reigned for several years but died without an heir.
Thereupon Elizabeth I, the daughter of Henry and Anne Boleyn, ascended to the throne and fortunately for England, reigned long, memorably, and happily. She was beloved in her time. One major accomplishment of Elizabeth's was that she avoided wars. This meant that the English people were not expected to pay for wars and send their sons to be killed, as has been the case in Henry's time. However, Elizabeth had no known heirs, and so the Tudor influence eventually and finally came to an end, though they still live large in our imaginations 600 years later.
