Kartikeya's other name, Shadanana, which means 'one with six heads' corresponds to the five senses and the mind. The six heads also stand for his virtues enables him to see in all the directions - an important attribute that ensures that he counters all kinds blows that can hit him.

The war imagery and the six heads of Kartikeya indicates that if humans wish to lead themselves efficiently through the battle of life, they must always be alert lest they are shown the wrong path by crafty people with the six demonic vices: kaama (sex), krodha (anger), lobha (greed), moha (passion), mada (ego) and matsarya (jealousy).

The symbolism of Kartikeya thus points to the ways and means of reaching perfection in life.

War between Soorpadma and Kartik

Soorpadma was an elder brother of Tarakasur. Siva intended for His son Karttikeya to go South to put down the asuras. But first He sent His ambassador to advise Soorapadman to avoid war and release the devas. However, Soorapadman, who had already obtained the boon of eternal life from Shiva through his very arduous penance, refused all advice. 

Inter-Planetary War
So war was declared. As mythology has it, at that time many of the stars and planets in the common were populated by titanic races of asuras. All of these powerful beings were destroyed and yet Soorapadman couldn't be killed or captured. Murugan then prayed to the Cosmic Mother, Shakti,and She sent Him the holy Vel or lance, the most advanced weapon that could track Soorapadman and flush him our of from wherever he hid.

Soorapadman had fled the battlefield and was hiding in the deep sea in the form of an enchanted mango tree in order to escape his relentless pursuer. Lord Murugan finally hurled the vel which split the tree and broke the enchantment. Soorapadman surrendered to Murugan, acknowledged His Divine Majesty, and begged Him for His limitless mercy.

Tiruchendur: Lord Senthil Andavar with His Vel shatters the magic of His Titan-Adversary.

Accordingly, the Lord transformed the asura's one half into a peacock to serve as His vahana or vehicle, and his other half into the ensign of a cock as his vetri-kodi or victory pennant. Lord Murugan, as Subrahmanya the Radiator of Brilliance, hence granted such a wonderful boon even to His sworn enemy.

 Lord Ayyappan


Story : the need 4 the birth

The asura princess Mahishi was burning up with anger at the trick the gods had pulled on her brother, the asura king Mahishasura. As Mahishasura was blessed with invulnerability to all men, the gods had sent goddess Durga, to fight and kill him. Thus, Mahishi began performing a fearsome set of austerities, and pleased the creator godBrahma. She asked for the boon of invulnerability, but Brahma said it was not possible so Mahishi planned and asked invulnerability to all men except by the son of Shiva and Vishnu. He granted her the boon of ruling the universe and being invulnerable except by the son of Shiva and Vishnu. Since such a person did not exist, she thought she was safe and began conquering and plundering the world.
The gods implored Shiva and Vishnu to save them from this catastrophe. Vishnu found a possible solution to the problem. When Vishnu had taken on the Kurma Avatar, he also had to manifest himself as Mohini, the enchantress, to save the nectar of immortality (ambrosia or amrit) from the demons who were not willing to share it with the gods. If he became Mohini again, then the female Mohini and the male Shiva could have the divine child who would combine their powers and beat Mahishi.
