Life Path Number 6
Those with a life path number of 6 are virtual knights in shining armor to those around them, always seeming to come to the rescue. Your eyes are always on you home and community and you have a knack for being aware of the little things that really matter to others.
As the Universe’s caretaker, your inner circle could become a Normal Rockwell painting dedicated to love and nurturing. You redefine “being domestic” and would have no issue being the stay at home type. Flash and fanfare just isn’t your way – rather just meeting needs as you see them. The downside to this is that 6’s often overlook personal needs and in their quest to help others can often over-reach a situation to the point of intrusiveness.
When 6’s are happy, it seems everyone around them is likewise happy and content. However as a 6 you can broadcast emotions unwittingly. If a 6 is sitting by themselves pouting, it’s going to be a lousy night for everyone.
6’s look for people in their life that have strong humanitarian traits (or so they hope). Unfortunately the 6 may have over-estimated a person or group and suddenly discovers the darker side of humankind. This makes the 6’s aura very itchy, and it will be a while before the 6 can trust deeply again.
No matter what when you need a “doer” find a 6. They sometimes become a little over-controlling due to the desire for everything to be just perfect, but they still really get the job done in spades. Forgive the 6s shortcomings and feel the love flowing from his or her very soul.

6 symbolizes the great Mother Goddess in many of its attributes. It’s nurturing, unselfish, emotionally connective, faithful and the embodiment of human and Divine grace. Other sacred numbers are easily attracted to this peaceful soul.

We see a lot of the spiritual attributes of 6 when researching global religion. In Buddhism, for example, 6 is a perfect number embracing all the qualities for which this philosophy strives including giving to others, patience and wisdom.

Number 6 As an Expression or Destiny Number
Destiny tends to be kind to the 6 because 6 is kind to everyone else. Numerology tells us that 6 symbolizes symmetry and harmony. This personality has learned the art of active listening and applies it to help whenever they can. They do not have to seek out people to help either – folks are drawn like a magnet to the charismatic vibration of this destiny number. If you sit down to talk about a problem with a 6 don’t be surprised if you tell them way more than you intended. It happens all the time, and 6 doesn’t mind – let it all out!
If your destiny number is six you probably have a natural affinity for the little guy… and not just humans either. If you into a pet store you always pick out the runt of the litter. In life, you watch over young children and may even choose a career as a Nanny or something similar so you can stay close and protective.
The 6 has a strong spiritual connection with Divine Will and their karmic duties in this incarnation. Their challenge in this life is learning how to give back to self. Remember its OK to cry, fear, rant – even stomp your feet from time to time. If you don’t learn this lesson a 6 can become very stressed, depressed or resentful which is a very sad thing when the potential for greatness is so close.
Number 6 As a Heart’s Desire or Soul Number
The soul number 6 is all about justice, honesty and integrity. If you want to keep 6 as a friend or lover N.E.V.E.R. lie to them. That will end badly.
Additionally these people don’t handle chaotic situations well. They need patterns that create security, which can sometimes come across and being domineering. It’s really not the 6’s fault – they were born with an overactive responsibility gene, and feel it’s their figurative duty to diligently watch over the sun in the morning and the moon at night.
As a 6, take pride in what you accomplish for others but remember to release the apron strings from time to time. You need to nurture yourself too. People simply aren’t perfect and they’re spirits aren’t meant to burn so hotly.
You (and everyone else) will be glad you did!

6 people are the quintessential home bodies. They love their space and would prefer to entertain there than go out. This karmic number makes a great parent or big-brother type. They are happiest when surrounded by the basics and in a construct they know like the back of their hand.
Noise, clutter and confusion are not compatible with the 6 energy. They want an environment and indeed a life that is both comfortable and calm. This doesn’t mean spending a ton of money – it just means that the 6 creates a cocoon for the proverbial butterfly of all-our-relations.
Numerology Number 6 & Career Path
It’s not surprising to see a 6 in the role of lawyer, judge, humanitarian, diplomat, nurse, patient advocacy and other jobs in which their motherly nature shines. Within this realm, however, they will not release their morals and standards. There is a code to which 6 sticks: be true to yourself. This can make certain jobs difficult because the 6 has to rely on those around them to have similar principles to which they adhere.
In terms of pacing, 6 is not a hurry-up number. Everything has a time and place, and the organization skills are impeccable. While they can multitask, they want that special attention to detail that becomes a personal fingerprint.
