Margaret has years of experience in numerology and astrology and loves exploring anything associated with the paranormal field.

Did you just discover numerology, or have you been studying it for a while? Either way, you'll come to know that it can be a valuable self-help tool. Should you use it wisely, it can help you take control of your life. What do I mean by that? Well, numerology can help you discover your inner self—including your strengths and weaknesses—and understand how others see you. Moreover, it makes it easier for you to face your challenges and learn valuable lessons from them. The first thing you need to know in numerology is your life path number. This article explores the life path number six.

In order to calculate your life path number, simply add together the day, month and year of your birth, until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born on the 3rd of May, 1960, you add 3+5+1+9+6+0 = 24 = 2+4= 6. Your life path number is 6.

What Does a Life Path Number Six Mean?

Number six is all about love. And when I say love, I don't necessarily mean the romantic kind. This number represents all kinds of love: the romantic one between a couple, the mother's love for her child, the love childhood friends share, etc. People with a life path number six are family-oriented and put their partner and family first. Just like number two, they hate tension and conflict—once the latter rises, they will be the first to restore things. Their home is their sacred place and they enjoy all home activities, from gardening and decorating to even doing household chores! Moreover, sixes are philanthropists and usually donate a lot of their time to charity. Due to their need to nurture and help people, they make excellent teachers, therapists and nurses.

Fun Facts About the Number Six in Numerology

Relationships With the Number Six

People with a life path number six are very romantic, affectionate, loving and caring. They usually start dreaming of making their own family from a very young age. When in a relationship, they are loyal and committed. Sixes always put their partner above everything else in their life, including themselves. On the other hand, sixes tend to idealize their partners. Once they create an image of the ideal characteristics they'd want their partner to have, it's very difficult to meet their high standards.

What Does the Number Six Find Attractive?

Since this number's life revolves around love, people with a life path number six are attracted to sweet, romantic and caring individuals. They can't stand people who create conflict, who are opposed to the idea of creating a family or those who are indifferent to other people's struggles. Sixes also usually like shy and sensitive people who prefer spending time at home over going out.

What Lessons Should People With a Life Path Number Six Learn?

Due to their need to care for and help others, individuals with a life path number six often end up sacrificing their needs. It is essential that throughout their lives they learn to not only give to others, but to also put themselves and their needs first every now and then. Another useful lesson for them is that love isn't always sweet and perfect. In fact, it is often messy and complicated. Thus, sixes shouldn't idealize their partners so much. Also, they should have more realistic expectations of people. Due to their humanitarian and loving nature, most sixes retreat easily in order to avoid tension and conflicts. This can make them come across as weak, although they're not. They need to learn to show their strength of character more frequently—not just when they are forced to.

Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself.

— Plato

You've just learned the most important things about the life path number six. If you have any questions about it or about numerology in general, feel free to ask! Another fact you need to know is that sometimes people have some traits of other numbers too—it depends on what your other four basic numbers are. Good luck on your journey through the fascinating world of numbers!

      The number 6, matches my husbands zodiac, which is why I asked.

      And your feedback make a lot of sense, you are so insightful, I have made sure to booklet your articles from number one, as it matches a persons attribute and character so clearly defining them as individuals.

      I really admire your findings, can't wait to read many more of your articles.

      Thank you Mitara, I always appreciate your comments very much! Number 4 is associated with the zodiac sign Taurus, due to the fact that they share a lot of traits- Taurus is also very hard-working, organized, etc. So, if we had to match number 4 to any of the 12 zodiac signs, it matches most with Taurus. Nothing more to it, really- my zodiac sign doesn't match my life path number either! Have a nice day!
