The Birth Day number is the day of birth reduced to a single digit. In the case of Tom Cruise, no calculations are needed, because his day of birth is already a single digit.
The day of birth indicates some special talent you possess. It is a gift to you that will help you along your life’s path. Your day of birth is one of your five core cumbers, but perhaps the most finite in that it reveals a specific ability that you possess in a marked degree.
Your Birth Day number is the number of the day you were born, and its examined as both a single-and a double-digit number. The reason for this twofold way of looking at the number is that a double-digit Birth Day number suggests that you possess additional characteristics not directly revealed by the single-digit number. For example, a person born on day 15 can be said to have a 6 Birth Day number, but the double digits, the 1 and the 5, suggest other abilities and character traits not revealedby the 6 alone. The 15 brings very different underlying talents to the 6 than does the 24, which is derived from the 2 and the 4, also a 6, but is quite different in nature. This is particularly important when understanding the Birth Day number.
