Let’s explore the number 6…
Traits of the number 6 in numerology
- Romantic: The number 6 is the ‘number of the heart’. It glows with the power of passion and true love. Representing all aspects of love and romance from dating to marriage, the number 6 is a number which at times indicates the presence of love — and at other times it radiates its own aura of love and romance on the world around it.
- Protective: Not all “love” is romantic love, as this positive dimension of the number 6 demonstrates. The vibrations of the number 6 can be very protective of those with less strength and power. It’s role among the vital single-digit numbers is to protect the vulnerable, and its normally peaceful nature can become abruptly defensive if those it protects are threatened.
- Healing: The number 6 also extends to its amazing loving and protective energies with a capacity to heal through love. With its natural ability to spread its warmth to those around it, the number 6 is a vital force for health, wellness and healing for those within its circle of love and protection.
- Supportive: The number 6 is also a number of emotional support and compassion. An excellent “listener”, the number 6 is a force that’s consistent and stable — it’s always there with a warm aura of emotional support and excellent advice.
- Humanitarian: As you might have guessed, the previously mentioned traits of romance, protection, healing and support, mean that the number 6 is also a general lover and protector of humanity itself. As a humanitarian, the number 6 is caring and strives for harmony between peoples, and the betterment of humankind.
Weaknesses of the number 6 in numerology
While the number 6 may be a veritable wellspring of “warm and fuzzy” loving, supportive, healing energies, there are a few downsides to be aware of. Here are few negative attributes associated with supportive 6:
- Overly Idealistic: With all that humanitarian energy and a nearly endless desire to be supportive and protective — sometimes 6 can be a bit too idealistic. While its heart is in the right place, sometimes it’s just not down to earth or realistic enough.
- Easily injured: The trouble with being a hopeless romantic, is that feelings and emotions are at the forefront. When feelings come first, they’re often the first things to be bruised. The number 6 may have an aura fit for soulmates and true love, but for all of that powerful love energy it also gets emotionally bruised sometimes.
- Non assertive: The flip side of being a supportive, humanitarian type is that one can often put oneself at the bottom of the list. While the energy of the number six may be a positive for the rest of humankind, it often carries the downside of putting oneself last. 6 can at times be non-assertive and nearly disinterested in selfish pursuits. While that may seem like a positive trait (and it is) it’s also occasionally self-damaging.

The Destiny number is derived from a numerological reduction of our first, middle and last names.

The other numbers in our numerology profiles also share some influence on our ultimate destiny.
