The Symbolic Meaning of The Number Six

Seal of SolomonThe lessons to learn from the number six are harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth. We are required to call upon the energy of the six when dealing with diplomacy and sensitive matters. It is the ability to feel compassion and love in any given situation.

In numerology, the number six indicates a balanced personality. People who predominantly display features of the six are responsible, idealist, carers, unselfish, teachers, protectors, charitable and have emotional depth.

The negative aspect of the six personality is that you are disconnected, hypocritical, weak, shallow, submissive, restless and easily stressed.

People who have too much energy from the six are pulled in different directions by others to the point they are continually giving and being distracted from what they really want to be doing, or should be doing.

In esoteric teachings, the six is often represented by the hexagon, sometimes formed by two overlapping triangles as we see in the Star of David and Seal of Solomon.

In essence, this is the coming together of the male and female principles in divine union and represents a balance.

The six is therefore the joining together of the two creative expressions we find in three, doubled up to make the six more powerful. The six is the joining together of two opposites.

The six in religion

The Bible reflects the same principles given in numerology. The six represents human weakness, someone who is not able to overcome temptations. In the creation story, man was created on the sixth day and would later  succumbed to temptation, something each of us has to overcome during the course of our life.

The six is base consciousness and only by transcending to the seven will you gain a better understanding of life, improve your personality or work with the laws of nature.

The number of the beast – 666 – represents the point when man is enslaved by his basic nature in body, mind and soul. 666 therefore represents the animal nature of man when we enter the physical plane.

In many eastern religions the purpose in life is to liberate the mind whereby you will transcend from base consciousness to higher consciousness.

Acting on the six

When sixes continually appears in your life, you have to find a way to balance your time and your emotions. You need the strength to say no and not take on too many responsibilities that burden you despite your innate intuition to help and serve others.

It may be that the case that you need to give up an addiction that does not serve you such as drinking, gambling, impatience, arrogance, over-eating, sex for gratification or whatever it may be.

If you do not take time out to care for your own needs, try to improve your character traits and resist temptation, you will not move into a state of self-awareness which leads you along the path to your higher self.
