LOCATING YOUR CORNERSTONE, FIRST VOWEL, AND CAPSTONE.
Each letter in your name represents your characteristics, but the location of the letters
can determine their impact.
For instance, the first letter of your name (use your first name at birth) is called the Cornerstone. It gives you an indication of your character, particularly in the way you approach opportunities and obstacles.
The last letter of your first name reveals your ability and attitude toward finishing projects that you start. This letter is called your Capstone. Together, your Cornerstone and Capstone can tell you much about your capacity to start and finish a project successfully.
The first vowel of your first name reveals something of your deeper self. As I explained earlier, the Heart's Desire is a somewhat hidden, but strongly represented, core number in your chart. It is a big part of yourself that you do not reveal easily or indiscriminately, and it is usually recognized only by your relatives and friends. The first vowel of your name is the little window through which you allow the uninitiated a glimpse at your deeper self.
It is interesting to note that a person who uses a first name with a different first vowel as the original birth name is particularly apprehensive of revealing his or her deeper self.
Thomas has a T(2) Cornerstone, an O(8) First Vowel, and an S(1) Capstone.
The triangle on the right-hand side of the color chart shows three different numbers.
In the lower lef is the Cornerstone,
in Tom.s case a 2.
To the right of the Cornerstone is the Capstone, in Tom.s case a 1.
In the top of the triangle is the number 4. This number represents the Key. The Key is the sum of all the letters in the first name of the full name. The Key is important only in that it forms one half of the equation that gives us the Rational Thought number. More about the Rational Thought number later in this course.
Below is a listing of all the letters in the alphabet to help you understand how they affect you as a Cornerstone, First Vowel, or a Capstone.
Try to read the texts as applying specifically to the areas of your personality as described above. For example, under Special Letter A, you find it to be ambitious. This ambition is related to the way you approach opportunities if it is a Cornerstone. As a First Vowel, the A reveals that you are more ambitious than you let on, and as a Capstone, it shows you to be the kind of person who will push on until a project is completed - if necessary without anyone's help.
