When you are born with the Life Path of Six you are known as a motherly, nurturing type, a person who brings hope, righteousness and truth to all situations as well as a level of domesticity and stability.
You are a paternal or maternal individual whose instincts about life tend to be spot on no matter what experience may thrust itself upon you. A typical 6 will involve themselves deeply in matters within their community especially in matters of home and the family because domesticity is where they thrive. This nurturing individual tends to have somewhat conservative ideas which are deeply ingrained.
You tend to need to feel useful in order to be happy. You need others to need you because you love to help others. It is your actual role in life to be the mother or the father to many. Not necessarily in physical children, though that is most assuredly a possibility, but there are very few people in this world who can love the way that you can love and you know this as do others. You are all about taking care of others in a humanitarian kind of way.
You are the type of person who would find great satisfaction in assisting in a charity or in a soup kitchen feeding the homeless or helping them get jobs. Social services would be an excellent career for you because you would be able to get paid to work with others on bettering their life experience, something that you know a lot about and are able to help with.
One of the downsides of this Life Path is that too often you tend to carry more than your fair share of the burden in life because you feel that others can’t do it. Therefore you are constantly being the strong one, the prepared and stable one which does a couple of things.
First of all you are missing out on the blessing of being cared for yourself, but also you are robbing others from the lesson of being able to care for you. There is an ineptitude that is created when one seeks to help too much, and in helping we need to allow others to gain their own strength. Letting go of the control in this instance is a helpful way to go. You enjoy getting the credit for working so hard, but often at the expense of your own physical body and health, which is not the best way that you could be thriving in your life path.
If you aimed to just balance out the amount of time that you spend helping with the amount of time that you accept health you will find your life experience will be so much easier and freer, as well as more vibrant and lush because you will have been able to develop stronger relationships with others by taking yourself off of the pedestal for a while and allowing others to care for you.
You don’t tend to function well in stressful relationships because you don’t know how to handle others who end up being untrustworthy, but one of the problems with always being the nurturer is that you tend to get taken advantage of by those who would just take and take. Make sure to create those boundaries and you will go far.
