Numerology Meanings: Number 6 (Six)

The purpose of the Numerology Meanings series is to provide an in-depth interpretation of numbers using metaphysics and occult sciences including numerology, astrology, tarot, chakras and more.

The Numerology Meanings series will focus on the holistic (complete) and occult (hidden) vibration of the numbers not just life path numbers or surface level descriptions.  These number definitions can apply to people, places, and things.

Numerology Meanings: Number 6 (Six)

The number 6 represents perfection, balance, beauty, service, and the arts.  It is a number that is a critic because it expects alot from itself and the other numbers.  This energy of critiquing can come across as arrogance or wise counseling.

Six is a number of perfection because it is the sum of the first 3 numbers (1+2+3).  The number three is the first number of completion (1+2=3).  If 3 is the first number of completion then the 6 is the first number of perfection. Remember, every number is complete and perfect within itself but some numbers hold more energy from a human perspective.

Six is an artisitc number that is fond of beautiful and creative expressions.  The planet Venus is associated with 6 and Venus loves beauty and desires to express artistically through song, dance, theater, music and the sort.  Since six is a harmonizing energy it likes to put things together through all the arts.

Another major attribute of 6 is it denotes service or being of help in some sort of way.  Six feels like it can help because it’s been through the first 5 numbers (1-5).  This is the first part of “giving back” which is an attribute of the 9.  Six is really an upside down 9 so it inherits the ability of service and humanitarianism.

With the characteristics of service and perfectionism the six can become self-sacrificing because it may feel like it gives more than it receives.  In a harmonic state the six should give and receive equally (balance).  When this state is formed (balance) the six is a high vibratory number.

Biblically, in Genesis, God made man on the sixth day and this is when creation was complete. This is another reason why six is a number of completion and perfection.  In the West, we have 5 physical senses (touch, taste, hear, smell, hear) and our sixth sense is considered to be extra sensory or psychic and intuition.  It is no coincidence that the brow chakra or third eye is considered the 6th chakra.

In Numerology, the number 6 is associated with the planet Venus. Venus governs the astrological signs Taurus and Libra.

Taurus is an Earth sign that deals with money, desire in comforts, and speech. Libra is an Air sign and deals with balance and relationships.


Numerology associates each letter with a number so each number represents letters. The letters that correspond with the number 6, in the Pythagorean system, are f, o, and x.

In the Chaldean system, the number 6 is associated with u, v, and w.  Chaldean numerology predates the western form and does not assign any letters to the number 9 as they felt that 9 was sacred.


The Tarot is a type of divination that uses archetypal energy to give insight into any area of life.  The deck is divided into two sections, the Minor and Major Arcanas.  The Tarot’s Major Arcana cards are all assigned a number.

The Lovers card is #6 in the Tarot. This card represents love, desires, and choices.  The Lovers most significant attribute is the power of choice. Choice leads to relationships that turn into love. Desires are what leads to all choices.


chakra is an energy hub that dispenses energy to different parts of your body. Chakras also hold memories that correspond to the emotional vibration it represents.

The brow or 3rd eye chakra (ajna) is the sixth energy center in the chakra system.  The emotions and energies that the brow chakra represent are intuition and discerning truth from illusion.

Each chakra has a 7 year cycle when we are mostly concentrating on the lessons that each chakra teaches.  The cycle for the brow chakra is from 28 to 34 years old. This is the time when we begin seek our true spiritual truths and prioritize on what is real for us.
