Those born with a Life Path number 6 are incredible nurturers. If men, they rescue damsels in distress. If women, they mother the “little boy” in their men.
If you have a six in your chart you are home, family, or community oriented, loving, warm, understanding, compassionate, responsible and reliable and interested in pleasing others. You are an excellent caretaker and provider, and enjoy being of service to others, and this is especially true with your family and friends. You life revolves around home and family, and your parenting instincts are very strong. The word domestic most likely describes you well, and one job you would love is being a stay at home parent.
As a Six you should keep an eye on yourself as you may become self-righteous and critical of others. Because you are so giving you might have a tendency to become a slave to others and neglect your own needs in the process. Because you thrive on supporting others you may sometimes find it difficult to find a balance between helping and meddling. You may also become an enabler for someone who needs taking care of in a relationship, or with a child, and not allow them to experience life or learn its lessons. People born on the Sixth path are often described as magnetic, as people are often drawn to them, and their moods can affect the room.
Your tendency is to be a humanitarian and you feel a genuine devotion to the welfare of your fellow human beings, but you must be careful of putting people on pedestals, as they often have a tendency to topple.
Life path number 6 is the number of responsibility and awareness. When those around you are losing their heads, you’re the one who takes charge. Stop fighting it. Below are some key points you might want to take into consideration to help you on your path …
Don’t try to deny who you are. You are a take charge person. You have two choices. You can accept it and get over it and do it right and actually enjoy it. Or, you can give up control and know that you’ll be critical of the way anyone else handles things. You’re probably a control freak. That’s OK, there are a lot of us out there. Just have a sense of humor about it. Remember, you’re a legend in your own mind! Now, keep reading.
Appreciate yourself. Aim for a career that rewards your responsibility. You’ll do much better as a manager than as a worker. If it means more education, then get it. Be proud of yourself for being capable.
Remember that the person in charge is only as good as the people doing the grunt work. Be compassionate, practical and appreciative. And make sure that you know how to do each person’s job, so that you know what you’re asking them to do.
You might want to make your vacations as control-free as possible. Someplace like Club Med or a cruise might be perfect for you. Give yourself a few days where the only decisions you have to make are if you’re hungry or thirsty and what you want to do about it. Let the people in charge take care of you for a change. Just make sure you know they’re going to do it properly.
Another vacation option is to do something very physical. Go someplace and help build a cabin, or a house. Do a seven-day backpacking or bicycle trip. The idea is to do something physically fairly strenuous for a week or so. Or huge, like train for and run a marathon. Make yourself tired. Just make sure you spend a couple of days recovering.
