Numerology Number 6 Life Path

As a numerology number 6, you are here for a special reason: to raise the vibration (energy) of the planet.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to join the Peace Corps or anything. 🙂

Rather, you spread your loving energy by being yourself and being kind to those you come in contact with.

You’re a natural-born nurturer, which is why you value marriage and family above all else. In fact, some call 6 the “motherhood number” or “Mother Teresa’s” number.

Your kind spirit always wants the best for everyone, and you are often found fighting the world’s injustices, and standing up for the underdog.

On any given evening, we may find you listening to, and offering guidance to a friend or family member in need.

Because you are dynamic, intelligent, and caring, others are drawn to you in droves. You’re a safe haven in a storm, and a problem-solver for many.

A major part of your life purpose is to accept that you are here to help humankind… but to maintain a balance between giving and becoming a martyr.

You will need to remember that you can offer wisdom and guidance, but ultimately, everyone has free will and is here to walk their own path.

Don’t become resentful if others don’t see things the way you do. Finding the right balance of helping without overstepping is key!

Number 6 Life Path tips:

  • Be mindful. You are a peaceful and spiritual being, but can get caught up in the “humanness” of it all if you are not mindful. Having self-awareness will help you live out your Life Path in harmony. Remember… balance! Don’t force help on others; you have a helper soul, but are not here to save everyone.
  • Practice energetic protection. As an empath, it’s easy for you to get sucked in and feel drained by others’ emotions. So, it can be a huge help to learn how to protect your energy. This trusted article will teach you how!
  • Take time for you! You have a big heart and try to help others more than most. To avoid resentment, be sure to take time for yourself every day. It is super important for 6’s to schedule “me time” into their calendar each day, even if it’s only 30 minutes.

Numerology number 6, you have a very special energy that can help heal the planet. Best yet? All you need to do is be your own wonderful self!

To live a life of helpful harmony, remember to be mindful, and take as good care of yourself as you do others. Like they say… you’ve got to put on your own oxygen mask first. Balance is your key.

Numerology Number 6 Emotional and Spiritual Challenges

Sensitivity and “over” helping

Point blank: numerology number 6’s can be a doormat for others.

You are so loving that you feel crushed when someone takes advantage of your sweet nature. If this happens, it may be difficult to trust anyone for a while.

Oh, and be careful not to go from being helpful to interfering… If someone hasn’t asked for your help, be careful not to step on toes, you know?

We know! It’s hard NOT to jump in and help.

Lack of self-care

Since you are always busy taking care of everyone else, you may forget to care for yourself. Be mindful of this, because being a martyr will lead to burnout.

A big lesson for you is to learn to have compassion and care for yourself.

Read that again. Write it on your arm with permanent marker if you have to. It’s important.

Take care of yourself so you can be the most awesome version of you! When you feel great, you can keep spreading your good energy around the planet.

‘Helping’ careers can be a great fit. These include:

  • Teacher
  • Healer (Reiki, acupuncture, etc.)
  • Guidance counselor
  • Doctor
  • Nurse
  • Therapist
  • Lawyer

In the workplace, you’re the Mama or Papa bear that helps newbies find their way. Those you work with adore you!

6 as a stay-at-home parent

As a six, you may enjoy being a stay-at-home mom or dad because “home is where the heart is.”

As we said earlier, you value a peaceful home and don’t like chaos. (Remember the Seinfeld episode with George’s father yelling “serenity now”?)

On the home front, you take pride in your home and love it to be clean and uncluttered. Being surrounded by beauty and order is very important to you.

As a parent, you nurture and guide your kids by using your own life circumstances to help them find their way. You make a great parent or foster parent that your children know they can rely on.

Numerology Number 6 Relationships and Compatibility

Your destiny draws you to people who need a stable influence in their lives. You may have had difficulties in your own life, and you use those experiences to inspire others.

As a partner or spouse

As a mate, you bring your unconditional love and support to the union, and want it to be reciprocated.

Although you are loving and compassionate… cue dramatic movie music… anyone who crosses a member of your family or a close friend should watch out!

You become the lion or lioness who protects the herd when danger approaches, and can be ruthless in a fight to keep your family and friends safe.

Most Compatible Love Matches

Tip: If your life path is Master number 11, use a 2 to determine compatibility; if you are a Master number 22, use the number 4.

6 and 2 – These two souls are in-sync and are both loving, compassionate, and gentle. They fit ‘hand in glove’ and can create a happy life together. Learn more about the number 2.

6 and 4 – This love match can build a harmonious relationship on solid footing, as the pair have similar values. A match made in heaven! Read more about numerology 4.

6 and 6 – There is oodles of love and romance in this relationship. Since both people value home and family, this can be a fabulous match!

6 and 8 – This can be a strong relationship among two people who are open and positive. Both people tend to have big ideas. A complimentary pair.

6 and 9 – These two souls tend to do very well together! Numerology number 6 loves, and sweet 9 provides the praise and recognition.

Potential Matches

6 and 3 – The numerology number 3 is a social butterfly full of heart-melty charm. On the flip side, the 6 likes to be showered with all the love, so this shared attention can cause some rough waters. But, if this match can find their footing, there is potential.

Least Compatible Relationships

6 and 1 – Though the 6 is peaceful and nurturing, numerology number 1’s desire freedom. So, if the number 1 sees the 6 as interfering rather than helping, it can make them feel insecure and cause problems.

6 and 5 – This duo are opposites. While 5 values freedom and the need to go with the flow, number 6 needs to feel secure and have some control. It’s commitment vs. freedom for this couple. To make it work, they need to compromise.

6 and 7 – This is a relationship about two different people, with different ideas about the relationship. 6 tends to want a permanent mate with family, and may be too controlling for the independent 7.
