Are you seeing angel number 6 in all sorts of random places and are you wondering about its hidden meaning?
If the answer to both of these questions are yes, then you have landed in precisely the right place. In this article, we’re going to deep-dive into the many layers of meaning and message contained within angel number 6.
If you boil it right down, angel number 6 represents the curiosity and drive that compel you to reach for higher states of being in both your spiritual, professional and personal life. What this means on a practical level is that angel number 6 is a symbol of your ambition and your desire for both progress, growth, meaning and connection.
The calling of the spiritual self can sometimes contrast with your everyday life. Let us say, for example, that you are a young professional, in your 30s, but you’re already married, have a couple of kids, and a mortgate. A lot is riding on you staying in your current career. Taking risks or changing your path, even if that’s what the inner you is calling out for you to do, can be both challenging and fraught with opposition.
In this sense, angel number 6 can pose a significant challenge. Are you going to stay put where you are, even if your current life path doesn’t fulfill you, or are you going to take the risk of pursuing your creative and spiritual desires?
Angel number 6 can also represent unconditional love and healing. Seeing angel number 6 is often a reminder to focus on building and nurturing your inner self, as well as your most significant relationships with others.

Why your guardian angels are showing you angel number 6
If your guardian angels keep showing you the number six, it is the furthest thing from a coincidence. The divine realm doesn’t play about – so when it sends you a message, it is because that message holds power and meaning that you can take and implement into your life in order to transform it for the better.
Angel numbers can appear in all sorts of seemingly random places. You might see the same number or number sequences appear on phone bills, in social media handles, on buses, on tables at restaurants and so on. If you keep seeing the same number frequently enough to start wondering whether it might be an angel number, the answer is almost inevitably yes.
If you have never received angelic guidance before but are open to the possibility, all you have to do is open up your mind and inutition with the intention to receive. You can even choose to pose a specific question to the universe-at-large. Doing so is particularly useful if you would like guidance on a particular topic or question.
Nedless to say, communicating with the spiritual realm is not as simple or direct as communicating with another human being. Your guardian angels may not always present you with an answer to your dilemma or request right away, but you have to trust that they will. Patience is key, as is an open mind and perception.
Decoding angel number 6
Once you’ve been seeing the same number repeated so frequently that you’re certain it must be an angel number, the next step is to decipher its meaning and messages. In this case, let’s see if we can peel back the layers of what the number 6 represents.
To gain the best possible understanding, let’s look at it from as many different spiritual, religious and symbolic angles as possible.
Religious perspectives on the number 6
If you look at the number 6 from a Christian angle, its connotations are mostly negative.
On the sixth day of creation, God created all the creatures that live on land, including the first human beings, Adam and Eve. In the beginning, Adam and Eve were perfect and content, but soon they started questioning and longing for more. More wisdom, more agency, more experience. Their inability to be content with the perfect paradise they had been given was what made them vulnerable to the serpent’s silver tongue.
Other fascinating Biblical tidbits related to the number six include Christ suffering on the cross for six hours, and men in Exodus having to work six days a week, just like God worked for six days before resting on the seventh.
It is also interesting to note that, in the Greek alphabet, the number 6 is encapsulated by a symbol called “stigma,” a word that we all associate with suffering and shame.
If we look to the Jewish Kabbalah, where the number 6 is associated with the sixth Sepiroth on the Tree of Life, we get a more positive energy and perspective. The sixth sphere (or sepiroth) is called Tiphareth, the Hebrew word for ‘beauty,’ and its planetary association is the Sun.
The Sun is symbolically linked to positive outcomes, triumph, optimism, inspiration and overall well-being.
The Lovers Tarot card
The Tarot has a way of blending together religious, symbolic, astrological and numerological aspects and presenting their meaning in one powerful and compelling archetype. This is also true for the Tarot’s take on the number 6.
In the Tarot the number 6 is crystalized in the Lovers card. Interestingly enough, the Lovers card depicts Adam and Eve standing in the Garden of Eden. Behind each of them is a tree – the one behind Eve recognisable as the Tree of Knowledge thanks to the serpent wrapped around it. The tree behind Adam is aflame, a clear symbol of the desire that drives him to follow Eve’s lead and bite into the forbidden fruit.
In the background, behind and above both of them, is the Archangel Gabriel, his wings unfolded as if to shield or envelop them. And above Gabriel, only the radiant sun, symbolic of God’s presence, or omnipresence.
The Lovers card represents the difficult seperation from the comfort and safety of the Garden of Eden. The Garden of Eden could represent your family home when you move away to go to college, or it could represent the workplace you have been accustomed to and have come to consider a safe and comfortabel haven. But here’s the catch. Even though Paradise is a wonderful place to be, it is human nature to long for something more, something else. We all crave discovery and the ability to unfold our creative potential, even when doing so is neither practical or ‘allowed.’
All in all, the Lovers Tarot card embodies the pain and difficulty of growing up, or of making the leap from one state of being to another. Sometimes, the choices that are represented by the Lovers card can be mistakes – but even so, they can be necessary in the moment. If we cannot pursue, strive, and occasionally fail, how can we ever hope to learn anything?

But angel number 6 asks you to let go of unrealistic expectations and to stop demanding expectation of yourself. Starting where you are and working your way forwards from there is enough. Tangible if incremental improvement is always so much better than theoretical perfection anyway.
Success in creative endeavors
Angel number 6 is associated with creativity and with the desire to nurture others through what you create.
