At the core of our being, most of us would say that how we interact with our friends and loved ones defines us more that any other quality. Despite our inner drives and desires, we tend to see our own worth in what our friends think of us. Numerology tells us that we can learn how we interact with our friends and loved ones. We just have to determine what our Core number is.
Your Core number, also called the Key number, determines how you generally interact with those close to you. It's calculation is very similar to you Destiny number, to which it is closely related. Your Destiny number is calculated using your full use name, first and last names; while your Core number is calculated using just your first name. Similarly, your Destiny number tells us how we interact with people in the world as a whole, those we know either casually or not at all, while your Core number determines how we interact with those very close to us. Very similar purposes, but with a different group of people.
Core Number as the Key to Life
Traditionally in Numerology the Core or Key number is critical to your ability to realize your potential and follow your Life Path. Your Birthday number, (the fadic sum of the day of the month you were born on,) is the lock on the door to your life. Your Core number is the key to unlocking this door. When your Core number matches your fadic Birthday number, then you tend to have trouble unlocking this door and realizing your potential. When this is the case, we are dependant on the help of other people to unlock this door and let us follow our Life Path. Calculation of your Core number involves taking your first name (whatever name you are called by), and finding the number values of each letter in that name. We then sum those numbers and reduce the total with fadic addition to get the value. For example actor Christian Bale has a Core number of (2) as shown in the calculation below.
Christian Bale (Core) = (Christian) = (3 + 8 + 18 + 9 + 19 + 20 + 9 +1 + 14) = (101) = (2)
