Soul Urge Number 6

Do you know what your soul craves more than anything else? Do you know why you came into this life? Or which path will bring you the most happiness and fulfilment?

Numerology can help to answer all these questions.

The Greek mathematician Pythagoras believed that everything, even God, could be expressed as a number.

Since the ancient days of Pythagoras, Western numerologists have expanded upon his ideas. Using different methods, you can now calculate key aspects of your life. These include your ‘karmic debt number’, your ‘life path number‘ and your ‘soul urge number‘.

What is the soul urge number?

The soul urge number reveals the deepest yearning of your soul. It contains the important lessons that your soul came to learn in this life. It can help you understand the main motivation that drives you forth in life.

Some people value their work, career and material wealth above anything else. They’re willing to sacrifice their time, even relationships, to get these things. For others, the only sacrifices worth bearing are those for their friends and family. They are more interested in providing love and care and meeting the needs of their partners.

Neither life path is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. For each person, nature has instilled a different soul urge.

How is the soul urge calculated?

Pythagoras wanted to explore how vibrations of musical instruments relate to numbers.

Similarly, the method for calculating your soul urge number involves adding up the values of the vowel sounds in your birth name. And you don’t have to be a numerologist with years’ worth of experience to do this. Just follow the instructions in this soul urge number calculator.

They’re willing to bear huge sacrifices for their loved ones. And they value family life above a career or material wealth. They desire to bring harmony and balance in the lives of others. Sixes are well-suited for healing professions.

They value peace and truth, and they are full of good advice, making six an excellent counselor. If there is someone in need, 6 will go out of their way to help them. However, as with any soul urge number, 6 comes with its unique challenges.

Love and relationships

Sixes are often so wrapped up in the needs of others that they may lose sight of their own desires.

Their caring and trusting nature can sometimes blind-sight them. They end up placing their trust in the wrong people.

6 invests a huge amount of time in lavishing others. Their relationships and love affairs with other people are usually deep (and time-consuming).

They understand the concept of ‘unconditional love.’ This enables them to maintain fidelity and loyalty towards those they love, seeing their romantic partner as ‘The One’. But it is important for anyone with soul urge number 6 to sift through their list of friends from time to time. This is to ensure that the closest people to them are people they can really trust.

Letting go of people is hard for 6. Ending a relationship may feel like their very foundations have been shaken. But sometimes it needs to happen to ensure that the people in the life of number 6 are worthy of their time and effort.

Losing sight of your own needs

Soul urge number 6 energy is generous, protective and harmonious.

Taking care of others and restoring harmony in their environment gives immense satisfaction to anyone with soul number 6. But this can make them lose sight of their own needs.

The challenge for 6 is to develop a bit of ‘healthy selfishness’ and set boundaries. If you have soul urge number 6, try to spend some time detaching from the needs of others. Make sure you get some ‘me time’ and work out what goals you want to achieve in this life.

Taking care of others

Whether at work or at home, being a caretaker in some way will make you feel fulfilled.

The needs of others and your loved ones are of paramount importance to you. In addition, you have a keen sense of justice.

That’s why 6 are often attracted to healing professions or charity work. You’re willing to work hard and show up if you believe that the work you are doing has value. (And, usually, that value comes from serving others.)

However, you do have a shadow side. As much as anyone with soul urge number 6 is willing to help their friends and family, they have a need for their efforts to be acknowledged.

Sometimes your willingness to help can also turn into a need to control. For instance, you may feel like you always know what’s best for others.

Instead of thanking you for your advice, they may start to resent you for being intrusive or meddling. Recognise when this happens and try to step back from the situation. Whether at work or at home, try to tone down on self-righteousness and admit that you may not always know what’s best.

Karmic lessons of number 6

The reason 6 has such a strong calling to help others maybe because they failed to meet their responsibilities in a previous life.

If people call you up all the time and ask for advice, you may worry about whether the advice you give out makes sense. As long as you don’t stop observing and learning you’ll stay on the right track.

You may also often find yourself at a crossroads of having to make an important decision. This is typical of soul urge 6. When making an important decision, align yourself with your compassionate and generous energy. That’s how you can ensure that you stay on the right track.
