Number Descriptions: Six

[This was originally sent to the Lo Shu Numerology email list.]

Today we’re going to dive into the meaning of the number six and come up with one or two ideas for things we can say in a Lo Shu reading.

6 = Communication

When the number 6 comes up as something to discuss, we know it means Communication, but how does that apply to a person?

First of all, when I think of the word “communication” I think of someone talking, which could apply to a teacher, a sales person, or a politician. While everybody communicates in life, this person is probably very good at it — which means they don’t just talk at others, but spark conversations and know how to connect people one to another.

So if a person has communication as a character trait, what kind of person are they? I think they’re likely a “people person” in that they can get people interested in what they have to say, and get some back-and-forth communication going.

A person with the communication trait is good at getting ideas across, and others often come to them for advice, knowing they’re willing to share their knowledge. That’s why sixes make good teachers — maybe not even professionally, but just how they live their life.

Your homework: Once again, do some brainstorming and see if you can come up with more ideas about someone with the Communication character trait. Then write up a couple sentences that you could say during a reading. You don’t need to memorize them, but if you write them out they’ll be much easier to recall when you’re doing an actual reading.

Next time, the number 7!

Number Descriptions: Five

Today we’re going to dive into the meaning of the number five and come up with one or two ideas for things we can say in a Lo Shu reading.

5 = Activity

When the number 5 comes up as something to discuss, we know it means Activity, but how does that apply to a person?

First of all, when I think of the word “activity” I tend to think of movement and excitement, although you could attach that word to someone who sits at a desk all day long and doesn’t appear to be active, but causes things to happen via emails, telephone calls, etc.

So if a person has activity as a character trait, what kind of person are they? Probably either someone who is always on the go — they’re busy with one project and have two more waiting in the wings. They’re probably also the kind of person who gets a job done. There’s the old saying that if you want to get something done, give the task to a busy person.

An active person knows how to be still and calm when they need to be, but even then their brain is usually working on solving problems or coming up with ideas that will, once again, get them on their feet and busy. And in most cases they’d rather be having new experiences than just thinking about them.

Your homework: Once again, do some brainstorming and see if you can come up with more ideas about someone with the Activity character trait. Then write up a couple sentences that you could say during a reading. You don’t have to memorize them, but if you write them out they’ll be much easier to recall when you’re doing an actual reading.

Next time, the number 6!
