Numerology 101 : the number 6

The nine single-digit numbers form the basis of numerology study, and represent the essence of order in our chaotic world. Each number has its significance, but what about the sixth one?

  • 6 –  nurturing, artistry, humanity, and balance
  • 66 – hope, abundance, ingenuity and positive mindset
  • 666 – passions, responsabilities, and higher spiritual truth
  • 6666 – stability, decisions, love and empathy

It is widely accepty that 6 symbolizes; the energy of Gaïa, balance, partnership and moral integrity.

In mathematics, the number 6 is the smallest perfect number. A six-sided polygon is a hexagon, one of the three regular polygons capable of tiling the plane. Figurate numbers representing hexagons (including six) are called hexagonal numbers. Because 6 is the product of a power of 2 (namely 21) with nothing but distinct Fermat primes (specifically 3), a regular hexagon is a constructible polygon. The evolution of our modern digit 6 appears rather simple when compared with the other digits. The modern 6 can be traced back to the Brahmi numerals of India, which are first known from the Edicts of Ashoka circa 250 BCE. Six is a unitary perfect number, a primary pseudoperfect number, a harmonic divisor number and a superior highly composite number, the last to also be a primorial. In music theory, there are six whole tones in an octave. There are six tastes in traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda): sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. These tastes are used to suggest a diet based on the symptoms of the body.

“The number 6 is creation in its purest form.” – Pythagoras

The number six is also spiritually full of insights. God took six days to create the world in the Old Testament Book of Genesis; humankind was created on day 6. In the City of God, Augustine of Hippo suggested (book 11, chapter 30) that God’s creation of the world took six days because 6 is a perfect number. In Islam, fasting six days of Shawwal, together with the month of Ramadan, is equivalent to fasting the whole year. In Hindu theology, a trasarenu is the combination of six celestial paramānus (atoms). Like other Angel Numbers, the number 6 meaning revolves around true revelation and opening doors to new paths. Connected to unconditional love and selflessness, it is not surprising to see the sixth major arcana of tarot being “The Lovers”. The Lovers intertwine in body and mind, consummating a union of opposites and an opening-up to a greater sense of inner wholeness. Together they represent all duality inherent to our universe, coursing through the tendrils of the world, imbedded in our bodies. We also find that the number 6 holds strong connections to your heart. It resonates with your emotions, your love for others, empathy, feelings of warmth and hope, and our desire to serve humanity. Six serves to remind us that love is the purest emotion of all. If you truly follow your heart, you will always be guided in the right direction.

“If the nine-single digits are the roots of our mathematical world, the number six would be the creation of our subconscious mind in the Tree of Life.” – Laurence BL
