The 6 is idealistic, trusting and easy to take advantage of ... which can produce devastating results. She carries her heart on her sleeve and expects the same from others. The role of counselor and advisor comes naturally to her, and many will come to her to cry on her shoulder or to seek her down-to-earth wisdom.
The 6 carries herself well and moves gracefully, yet is warm, funny and jovial. When the 6 is on a career path, she generally goes a long way due, in part, to her sense of duty and responsibility -- but also because she is genuinely respected and well-liked. You will find many 6s in careers such as teaching, healing, counseling, construction, the legal field and law enforcement, especially prison guards.
On the negative side, the 6 can be jealous and small-minded, tending to be more focused on the little details while ignoring the bigger pictures ... usually to her own detriment. She can be a bad judge of character, and has been known to sacrifice herself to a cause or a person even while everyone around her tries to convince her that this cause or person is not worth it.
The 6 is usually rather conventional and must learn to use her own mind instead of simply leaning on the opinions of those close to her. The 6 can also be smug and arrogant, especially toward authority figures or institutions. She can be annoyingly self-righteous and an intolerant religious zealot. The 6 sometimes suffers from anxiety and insecurity, even phobias. A disproportional number of people with OCD have the 6 prominent in their charts.
The 6, while loving, caring and full of sympathy for others, is self-centered and egotistical at heart. If those at the receiving end of her care do not show the attention she craves, she can turn on them, even hurt them. The Munchhausen syndrome is a disorder typical to the negative 6.
No number is without weaknesses and faults, but the 6 is actually the most harmonious and stable among the nine single digits. Yet, perhaps for that same reason, when the unusual happens and the 6 falls into discord and disharmony, it becomes possibly the most destructive and dangerous of all numbers. Beware of a cynical or angry 6 -- she is a merciless wolf in sheep's clothing.
