N is for the Nodes of the Fingers #A to Z April Blogging Challenge

What are finger nodes? Looking at your joints from the nail side up, you will see a knot-like series of lines between the sections (phalanges) of the fingers. Even if you don’t see lines, those areas between the phalanges are called finger nodes.

What do finger nodes signify? Depending on Something about your character. See below for the sixteen character types.

 

Upper node, aka (also known as) first node: the node closest to the nail. Also called the philosophical node, it is related to ideas.

Lower node, aka the materialistic node: has to do with the material world.

Nodular joints: if you can see the nodes on a particular joint, they are called nodular joints.

Smooth joints: if the nodes on the joints are barely visible, they are called smooth joints.

The Sixteen Personality Types

Combining the four types of finger tips and both types of nodes on both joints will yield sixteen different personality types. Which type are you?

  1. Pointed fingers, both joints smooth: Poetry of the heart and soul can be found here. Ecstatic religious feelings and love for all things beautiful might also be present. Such fingers are considered fingers of the psyche, even though unorganized thoughts and actions and incorrigible laziness are also seen here.
  2. Pointed fingers, nodular upper joint, smooth lower joint: A battle between inspiration and thought occurs in these people. The believer begins to doubt. The poet loses part of his genius. The positive aspect is that inspiration is used effectively for completing a job.
  3. Pointed fingers, smooth upper joint, nodular lower joint: The artistic potentialities here are overruled by the tendency for practicality. A poet or artist will be better off financially but will deviate from his true ideals. Did someone mention sellout?
  4. Pointed fingers, both joints nodular: The person moves away from his higher ideals in order to deal with reality. These personalities are often inventors or discoverers. They are at peace with their inner soul. It must be noted that pointed fingers are a rarity, and nodular joints on pointed fingers are almost never encountered.
  5. Conical (pointed and tapering) fingers, both joints smooth: The poetic gift is better felt in conical fingers. This person aims to cultivate beauty in its physical form, hates cold, hard logic, loves freedom of thoughts and manners.
  6. Conical fingers, nodular upper joint and smooth lower joint: The artist has practical motives. He figures out his efforts and aims to achieve specific goals. Such fingers can be found in the hands of talented and successful musicians and actors.
  7. Conical fingers, smooth upper joint and nodular lower joint: This person defends his interests in practical and monetary ways.
  8. Conical fingers, both joints nodular: Best combination for an artist, inventor, writer, musician or actor. This person takes life head-on, knows the value of their genius and how to use it for profit.
  9. Square fingers, both joints smooth: Shows a love of philosophy, social sciences, realism in art, and a talent for creating business plans. All those who have square fingers (regardless of nodes) are independent, honest (usually), strong and reasonable.
  10. Square fingers, nodular upper joint and smooth lower joint: Love cold, hard logic and arguments. They discuss everything, including religious beliefs. It’s almost impossible to change their convictions. These people can perform intelligently demanding, beneficial work.
  11. Square fingers, smooth upper joint and nodular lower joint: belongs to the perfect servant, who is obedient, orderly and disciplined, and puts his obligations first.
  12. Square fingers, both joints nodular: This person is fond of the natural sciences, archaeology and law, is a perfect financier, is honest and true. Not a genius, but has a strong mind. Doesn’t love poetry, art or literature.
  13. Fingers in the form of a spatula, both joints smooth: Needs physical activity, has an instinctive understanding of the real world. Likes sports, working outside, politics, management and travel.
  14. Fingers in the form of a spatula, nodular upper joint, smooth lower joint. An aggressive atheist, believing in no ideals. Hates feelings, loves realism, science, investigations and development of technology.
  15. Fingers in the form of a spatula, smooth upper joint, nodular lower joint: Lacks love for beauty but possesses an extreme attachment toward well-organized things.
  16. Fingers in the form of a spatula, both joints nodular. Strongly interested in physical activity, wants to be worn out by it. They count on science to succeed in their ventures.

M is for Murderer’s Thumbs #A to Z Blogging Challenge

M is for Murderer’s Thumbs #A to Z Blogging Challenge

When actress Megan Fox was found to have thick thumbs that look like small caveman’s clubs, her fame brought attention to these bulbous-looking thumbs known as clubbed thumbs or murderer’s thumbs.

Also called shovel thumbs, toe thumbs, Dutch thumbs, hammer thumbs, stub thumbs, and potter’s thumbs, murderer’s thumbs appear in around 0.4 percent of the U.S. population. It’s an inherited trait affecting the thumbs of women more often than men.

In past centuries, these types of thumbs suffered from a sinister reputation. Nineteenth-century Europeans and Americans branded club thumbs as indicators of primitive disposition, and also impulsive and unsophisticated thinking.

Palmists Pull Murderer’s Thumbs into the Mainstream

Renowned palmist William George Benham, in his 1901 manual The Laws of Scientific Hand Reading, warns that clubbed thumbs are “dangerous companions…not to be trifled with at any time.” He states, “Many murderers have had clubbed thumbs…. Their brutal instincts being strong, jealousy most often has led them to fits of violent rage. The terrible qualities of the clubbed thumb have given them passion and determination strong enough to take human life.”

Nine years later, the world-famous palmist Cheiro writes of people with murderer’s thumb: “If they are opposed, they fly into ungovernable passions and blind rages. They have no control over themselves, and are liable to go to any extreme of violence or crime during one of their tempers.” Fortunately, says Cheiro, the owner of such thumbs cannot “plan out or premeditate a crime, for he would not have the determined will or power of reason to think it out.”

As recently as 2011, in the book Practical Palmistry, Narayan Dutt Shrimal claims to have read the palms of 400 killers. Shrimal discovered that all of them had committed murder in a mad fit of passion, and had murderer’s thumb.

CHARACTER SHOWN BY THE THUMB

The longer the thumb, the more the power of will rules the actions. The shorter the thumb, the more brute force and obstinacy sway the nature. The shorter and more thick-set the nail phalange is, giving the appearance of a club, the more ungovernable is the person in his or her temper.

A MAN WITH MURDERER’S THUMBS AND ME

Back in the 70’s, I took a weekend class in palmistry, learning how to read the three main lines (head, heart, and life), and the thumb. Seven years later, when I worked as a fire department dispatcher for Whaler Air Force Base Fire Department, I read a couple of the firemen’s palms just for grins.

I stopped grinning when I read the palm of short, round firefighter Jaku. His thumbs were shaped like little caveman clubs, and I knew what that shape signified. I didn’t tell a soul what I saw, not wanting the firemen to think I was airy fairy, or that I’d been reading too many metaphysical books. I didn’t even tell Jaku’s hunky friend, for whom I carried a blazing torch back in the days.

To make a long story short: Jaku did indeed commit a murder.

Want to find out more? The story of Jaku, Vic and me is written in glorious detail in my mystery, romance, true crime memoir Angel Hero, Murder in Hawai’i, A True Story. If you like, you can download my first chapter for free by going to https://authorlizbethhartz.com/chapter1

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, N is for those Naughty Nodes of the Fingers.

L IS FOR THE LINE OF HEAD (MENTALITY)

World famous palmist Cheiro regarded the Line of Head, aka the Line of Mentality, as the most important sign in the hand.

He writes, “A Line of Head is like the needle in the compass, without a true knowledge of which it is impossible to grasp the “direction of the subject.”

He cites the mistake that many want-to-be palmists make of, for example, paying great attention to what looks like a good Line of Sun or Success, but  not noticing a weak, badly formed Line of Head, which contradicts the promise of success given by the various lines. If, on the other hand, the palmist had first noticed the Line of Head, he would have been able to tell the subject that the promise of success was not backed up by his intelligence or mentality. Thus proving the point that the entire palm must be read and evaluated in connection to many indicators, not just a line or two.

As regards to the future being foreshadowed, Cheiro reminds us that the brain is always growing, changing, increasing, or diminishing. These changes begin years before the effect is shown by the thoughts or actions of the individual. A 10-year-old boy may at that age begin a development which will not be felt until he is thirty, and then that development may change his whole life and career. Since this development begins at ten, even at that age it affects certain nerves, and they in their turn affect the Line of Head—20 years before the point of change or action has been reached. It therefore follows that the future may be seen and told by a careful examination of the hand which, as Aristotle described it, is the “organ of all organs, the active agent of the passive powers of the entire system.”

THE LINE OF HEAD AND ITS VARIATIONS

The Line of Head of the subject must in all cases be considered as the most important line on the hand. The greatest attention should be paid to it, so as to obtain a clear grasp of the Mentality under consideration.

The two hands should be carefully compared—the left hand (unless you are left handed) showing the inherited tendencies (unless you are left handed, in which case it’s the right hand), and the right (again, unless you’re left handed) displaying the developed or cultivated qualities. The slightest change or deviation in the markings from the left to the right should be carefully noted down or remembered.

The direction or the end of the line should, above all, be distinctly noted, for the all-important reason that this shows the direction the Mentality is inclined to develop toward. For example, if found with the end of the line sloping downwards in the left hand, and having become straight or lying across the palm in the right—the student is safe in concluding that the subject has not been able to follow his natural bent, but by the force of circumstances has been obliged to make himself more practical, to study business methods, and to have undertaken a training toward practicality and level-headedness in order to rise equal to the circumstances that he found himself forced to meet.

In this way the student obtains an insight into the earlier conditions of the life under examination that is invaluable, especially when there is, as will be found in many cases, no Line of Destiny visible in the early years. *When there is a line of Destiny, or Fate Line, it runs from the base of the palm to the middle finger – see diagram at top of the page.)

I’m running a post behind. I’ll catch up tomorrow with the post M is for Murderer’s Thumbs.

 

K is for the Knotty Knuckles and Smooth Finger Joints #A to Z Blogging Challenge

K is for the Knotty Knuckles and Smooth Finger Joints #A to Z Blogging Challenge

The joints of the fingers have a great deal of significance in palmistry. Not only can the joints’ physical appearance determine the field of work best suiting an individual, it also indicates the type and extent of qualities manifesting in a person’s fingers. The nice thing about knobby joints is that cut off the flow of energy through the fingers and therefore cause the owner to reflect. Whereas people with smooth joints tend to rush into undeliberated decisions.

But before rushing out to get your palm read, find out if those knobby joint of yours might be Heberden’s Nodes, which occur on the knuckle closest to the end of fingers. Similar lumps are called Bouchard’s nodes when they form on the knuckles closer to the palm. The underlying cause for both of these is arthritis, and the nodes themselves consist of bone spurs, called osteophytes that develop around the joints in response to a prolonged inflammatory process. Fortunately, Heberden’s nodes usually are painless and don’t limit the function of the fingers. Such nodes may represent an inherited form of osteoarthritis, the type of arthritis caused by wear and tear and, sometimes, injury.

What, you might ask, are joints really?  They are the walls between the various sections (phalanges) of fingers. Why are they significant? According to palmistry, because they indicate the inclinations and temperament of the subject. Some general information about the joints on the basis of their physical appearance is provided below.

  • The smooth joints in the hand of an individual symbolize a subject which does not think too much and jumps to conclusions quite often. Such a person never analyzes a situation.

  • In the case of square hands and smooth joints, the subject thinks a little bit but will jump to a conclusion after giving very little thought to the topic of conversation.

  • The smooth joints on pointed fingers represent individuals driven purely by their own instincts. They are careless about their appearance and what they wear and are not bothered by small things.

  • Such a person will be careless and absent-minded and will not be able to take care of the important documents and other required details in a business.

  • In contrast, people with developed joints are laborious, astute, attentive and sensible.

  • People with smooth joints are often the ones who perform the toughest kind of manual labor while the ones with knotty or developed joints only perform mental labor.

  • The knotty joints sometimes are inherited in families for generations while on other occasions they appear prominently in only one child in a family.

  • The presence of developed joints signify accuracy and efficiency of work in an individual.

  • Men with developed joints have an excellent taste of color in their dresses which resemble the taste of females and they do not prefer women which have a bad taste of colors in their clothing.

  • People with well-developed joints in theatre are able to portray the character with perfection but lack intensity.

  • These people establish a landmark in artistic fields like literature because of their unique imagination and strong analyzing power.

The Knotty-Fingered Philosophic Hand

Of the many different types of hands, the Philosophic Hand is the one that possesses knotty joints, indicating an individual who thinks things through. This hand is long, bony, angular and fairly thin. People with this type of hand are always studious. They are great readers and usually have a strong tendency towards literature. They love sedentary work, and have a somewhat lonely, ascetic disposition. The knotted (aka jointed) fingers give carefulness and detail in work or study. They arrest the impulse of the brain, and so acquire time for thought and reflection.

J is for the Jupiter Mount: The Mirror of an Attractive Personality

J is for the Jupiter Mount: The Mirror of an Attractive Personality

Mounts are significant in the study of palms because different lines are formed and developed due to the influence of mounts. Named after the planets, mounts reveal special features of them. Interestingly enough, it has been discovered that the planet which is more prominent in the horoscope is also prominent in the palm. The mount we will discuss today is:

The Mount of Jupiter

This mount is situated at the base of the index finger and above the Mount of Mars. It represents god power, leadership, organization and authority. The Mount of Jupiter is considered to be quite helpful in life because it moves the person toward progress.

If the Mount of Jupiter is prominent and well developed, then such a person is said to possess godly qualities (after all Jupiter was the Roman god of the sky). Such persons try to safeguard their self-respect. They are learned and always prepared to help others. Difficult conditions do not disturb them. Most Justices of High courts and authorities in high positions are found to have well-developed Mounts of Jupiter. They have a special quality that can change the public in their favor. Many are also religious-minded.

If the Mount is less prominent or under-developed, then the above qualities are generally deficient. Physically such persons are of ordinary body, healthy, and have engaging, smiling faces. These folks are experts in delivering lectures. They are also kind at heart. They would rather attain respect and a good reputation rather than wealth. They have a soft spot in their hearts for the opposite sex.

If the Mount is developed more than necessary, such a person tends to be selfish and proud.

If the Mount is absent in a person, he lacks self-respect. These unfortunate people get very little patronage from their parents, so can be found in the company of lower-class people.

Signs Found on the Jupiter Mount and Their Effects:

Triangle: If a perfect triangle exists on Mount Jupiter then that person is always a diplomat and is desirous of his progress. If the triangle is imperfect then the person is selfish and arrogant.

Cross: If there is a sign of a cross on Mount Jupiter then the individual is one who does his work after thinking carefully and is one who leads a comfortable life. He gets special wealth from his in laws and his wife is also educated. His family (domestic) life is also peaceful.

Spot: Spots occur in four colors: white, red, yellow and black. White spots signify progress, red spots are indicators of diseases (ailments) and yellow spots signify the deficiency of blood. Black spots are regarded as harbingers of wealth but they are both auspicious and unfavorable.

If the black mole is located on Jupiter Mount then obstacles in marriage arise. That individual has to bear the blame of love gone wrong and such a person does not achieve full success in life.

Circle: If the circle is situated on Jupiter Mount, the person is influential and succeeds in acquiring a high post through his efforts. Such a person gets a lot of co-operation from his in-laws.

Island: If the sign of the island exists on Jupiter Mount, then such a person lacks self-confidence.

Square: The presence of square on the Jupiter Mount is considered very auspicious. Such a person, in spite of being born in an ordinary family, reaches a very high post, is a successful administrator and gets a lot of respect and honor.

Mesh (Net): A mesh (or a net) on Jupiter Mount is regarded as inauspicious. If the mesh (net) is located on Jupiter Mount, that individual is cruel by nature, lacks feelings of compassion, and is  selfish and arrogant.

Star: If the auspicious sign of a personal constellation on Mount Jupiter is clear, distinct and flawless, then the individual is highly ambitious and attains great success. That individual becomes a high official and is very hospitable.

 

 

 

I is for Indications of Intimacy in the Hands

I is for Indications of Intimacy in the Hands

When you meet someone intriguing, it can be fun to check out their palms for signs of relationships, love, and marriage.

Shapes of Hands

Four general hand shapes are related to the four elements of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water:

Air Hands belong to intellectual and sociable people with square palms, long fingers, and thin, clear lines. They are commonly restless and in need of change and stimulation, mostly of the mental kind. As lovers, these people seek mental rapport above all else.

Earth Hands have a square palm, short fingers, strong or thick skin, and deep, clear, straight lines. Such hands belong to practical, down-to-earth people with vitality and a strong connection to nature and the outdoors. As lovers, they are usually quite dependable and straightforward.

Fire Hands have long palms, short fingers, plentiful and prominent lines, and firm, warm skin. These are the hands of risk-takers and action-oriented people. As lovers, these positive and confident folks are willing to take the lead.

Water Hands have long palms, long fingers, plenty of fine lines that are not always clear, and soft, damp skin. These hands indicate a creative, emotional person. As lovers, they are sensitive, vulnerable, a little naive, and focused on caring and being cared for.

The Thumb

The thumb’s flexibility is thought to measure how adaptable a person is. The more flexible the thumb, the more easy-going the character. A lack of flexibility suggests a stubborn person.

If the thumb narrows in the base phalange of the thumb, it is said to have a “waist.” The person with such a thumb is tactful and diplomatic in his or her relations with others.

Some consider the relative length of the thumb as an indicator of faithfulness. Longer thumbs are thought to indicate stronger characters who are faithful to others and to themselves.

The Lines on the Palm

The palm generally consists of the Major Lines, Secondary Lines, and Minor Lines.

A palm with numerous fine lines in addition to the Major Lines indicates a complex, sensitive person who is vulnerable to worries and outside influences. In general, the fewer the lines, the more straightforward the person.

The Three Major Lines as Indicators of Relationships

Of the three prominent lines on a palm, the top horizontal line is usually the Heart Line (Line A above.) This line indicates the affections. The higher this line is, the more passionate (and often more jealous) the person is. A Heart Line running straight across the hand suggests a controlled person emotionally. A Heart Line curving upward toward the Jupiter, or Index, finger indicates a warm-hearted, reasonable, and affectionate nature in relationships. Crosses and breaks on the Heart line are signs of periods of sadness and sorrow in love.

The middle horizontal line is the Head Line (Line B). This line indicates the type of intelligence a person possesses. The space between the beginning of the Head Line and the Life Line, if any, indicates how much cautiousness a person possesses. When these lines are joined at the beginning, the person has a rather cautious, and sometimes downright fearful, nature. The further apart, the more confident and risk-taking the individual is.

The curved line that generally swoops from near the base of the palm to the point between the thumb and first finger is the Life Line (Line C). A Life line that is wide, leaving plenty of room for the Mount of Venus, indicates a person with an expansive and giving nature in love. The closer the Life line is to the thumb, the less generous a person is with his time and energy.

An interesting secondary line concerning relationships is called the Line of Attachment or Marriage Lines. These lines appear above the heart line (just above point A). Light, fine horizontal lines found here are thought to indicate affairs that are not deep commitments. One long, clear line suggests a long-standing and happy marriage or commitment. More than one long, deep line is interpreted to mean the lower one is an earlier relationship in the person’s life.

The Mount of Venus

The Mount of Venus is found next to the thumb within the curved Life Line. Fleshiness here indicates a love of pleasure. A fleshy and firm Mount of Venus indicates a strongly sexual nature, as opposed to a flabby mount, which shows a low level of sexual vitality.

Prominent horizontal lines on the Mount of Venus indicate a person who strongly attracts lovers. Plenty of fine, grid-like lines going in different directions suggests a complex person in the area of love. Such a changeable character may frustrate lovers. Lots of fine lines indicate a person easily influenced by outside forces and just as easily fooled by his partners. A triangle on this mount indicates a person who may have extramarital affairs, and a crescent moon shape suggests someone with powerful seductive powers.

So watch out for those silver-tongued devils with hatch marks and a triangle on their Mount of Venus!

H IS FOR HAND SHAPES AND SIZES #A to Z Blogging April Challenge

H IS FOR HAND SHAPES AND SIZES #A to Z Blogging April Challenge

Palmistry is an art of fortune telling, practiced by evaluating an individual’s characteristics and future by observing the hand. It is studied seriously throughout the world and continues to fascinate everyone who comes across it.

People continue to have their palms read and many of them believe that what they learn is true. Are readings accurate? That depends on the skill of the palmist. A hand reader who knows how to read all aspects of the hand and stir them together into a holistic blend will have clients beating a pathway to his door, clamoring to cross his palm with silver.

Our two hands are never identical. They differ a great deal from one another and therefore give out different interpretations.

Left. The left hand is controlled by the right brain (pattern recognition, relationship understanding), and reflects the inner person, the natural self, the anima, and lateral thinking.

Right. The right hand is controlled by the left brain (logic, reason, and language), and reflects the outer person, objective self, influence of social environment, education, and experience. It represents linear thinking.

Hand Reading Secrets:

Hands are often defined by their sizes and shapes. Check out the following descriptions of what each one represents.

  • Large hands show a sense of obedience and attention to detail.
  • Small hands show an energetic person, authority figure, or someone who understands government and the ability to rule. An executive power (Trump?)
  • Medium-sized hands show well-roundedness. When a medium-sized hand’s fingers are as long as the palm, it signifies a person who works well with people in business. Someone who is “a jack of all trades, a master of none.”
  • Medium-Sized Hands with palms long in comparison with the length of the fingers show a person who’s able to make big plans. Such a person can easily get a good grasp on everything but sweats the small stuff of details.
  • Hands with the fingers relatively much longer than the palm are known to be poor planners. Although they can’t plan well they do manage to finish everything they do. These people will not overlook or neglect the slightest details.
  • Wide hands belong to people who feels sympathy toward others and are kind. They are able to see other people’s points of view as well as their own.
  • Narrow hands belong to those folks who are critical and exacting by nature. Such people see their own faults rather than their greatest qualities, and make terrible husbands and wives.
  • Hands wide open with fingers well apart belong to courageous, original people who take the initiative.
  • Hands with fingers close together are possessed by conventional, cowardly people who are afraid of consequences.
  • White hands show a selfish nature.
  • Red hands are an indication of passionate feelings mixed with angry emotions and boundless energy.
  • Soft hands belong to those who possess a marked ability, as well as those who work best “in spasms.”
  • Very hard hands are an indication of those who love work and have lots of energy. These people need to ask themselves what they want from life and try to meet that goal.
  • Square hands belong to people who are reasonable accurate, and have good horse-sense.
  • Pointed hands show people with idealism and spirituality. A person with this type of hand is never wrong. At least, that’s how they appear.

G IS FOR GOOD REASONS TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT PALMISTRY Blogging A to Z April Challenge

 

World famous palmist Cheiro insisted, “Character is Destiny.” He believed that, by discovering more about our character through palmistry, we can trace out our destiny in advance, and find the right plan to be used at the right time.

Cheiro was an amazing palmist, clairvoyant and gifted. He was also a humanitarian. His strongest desire was to see this strange study taken up as a useful and practical means of obtaining an exact judgment of people’s character, qualities, and hidden tendencies.

“I think that if all parents knew something of Palmistry,” said Cheiro, “the vast majority of children would be more usefully trained and their proper tendencies developed.”

Cheiro felt it was often too late when a child discovered some tendency never suspected by his or her parents. “It is no wonder so few persons find their true vocations in the world, when we remember the random, haphazard way in which children are brought up,” Cheiro said, “educated for the most part in some scholastic mill that grinds down all to the same dead level of mediocrity, and then turns them into the Army, the Church, or into trade.” How beneficial it would be, he speculated, if children knew from small kid days what their strengths and weaknesses were.

Cheiro earnestly hoped the study of hands would someday be taken up by the masses. It was from this standpoint that he interested such men as Gladstone, Professor Max Muller of Oxford, Lord Russell, King Edward VII, and too many others to mention.

Why Read Palms?

Like Cheiro, many palmists believe readings are a way of knowing more about ourselves or others. It has been a practice since ancient days that involves analyzing the features of one’s hand.

Looking Through the Lines of One’s Palm

Many palm readers suggest the main palm lines are the means of analyzing a person. The dominant hand is usually used. The reason behind the use of the dominant hand is that it is the one usually written with or used most of the time. Palm readings also need a careful observation of one’s hand shape. People’s hand shapes also show character about them. Different persons possess different hand shapes (more about this tomorrow when we discuss H IS FOR HEAD, HEART, AND HANDS.)  Hand shapes dictate what elements affect us, whether they be air, wind, water or fire. The four major lines intersecting our palms are the heart, head, destiny and life lines.

Why Get Your Palm Read?

Palm reading is usually sought after by those who desire self-knowledge. It can provide insight and information about one’s character as well as one’s future. Also, palm reading provides the clients with useful tips on accomplishing challenges he or she faces or will face in life.

Significance of palm reading

One should utilize palm reading for its positive benefits. The power of divination through palm reading can be experienced when one believes in its power. (As the Bible says, “It is given to you as you believe.”) Knowledge about the future will provide satisfaction and confidence. Some people merely seek entertainment through palm reading. Others can discover some hidden talents, skills and personality traits which they can use to great advantage in facing life challenges ahead of them.

CHIERO’S RULES FOR RAPID OBSERVATION OF THE FINGERS

Want to know a lot about a person quickly? Observe the fingers. If they’re short and stumpy in proportion to the rest of the palm, they belong to a person with coarse instincts, who lacks intellect.

If the fingers and palm are equal in length, the owner is more cultured. His ancestors are more intellectual and he can be depended upon for work requiring intelligence and a higher mentality.

If the fingers look unusually long and thin, the man or woman will possess too much idealism and refinement and is not suited to business or work requiring “level headedness” and practicality. It would be useless to put such a person in charge of work-people or over work-rooms. Such a person, however, could be depended upon to do mental or educational work, research, science, literature, or philosophy.

If his fingers, in addition to their length, are also knotty or jointed (joints much pronounced), he or she can be depended on for work requiring thoughtfulness, detail, and concentration.

If, on the other hand, these long fingers were smooth jointed, this person would, while being idealistic and intellectual, also be impulsive. Such a person would be suited to artistic work, such as painting, etc., but nothing requiring detail, research or science. He would be useless in positions where discipline or control of others was required.

THE FINGERS CONSIDERED SEPARATELY

The first finger is called the Finger of Jupiter, also the Dictator, Lawgiver, finger of Ambition.

If this finger is unusually long and nearly equals the second, these tendencies are pronounced.

Therefore, if your employee has this finger long, you can safely entrust him with control over, and charge of others. But beware lest your first finger is short in proportion for, if it is, you too will have “to toe the line” and you may find yourself in a disagreeable position.

Furthermore, if this man or woman has a first finger that is long and crooked, you will find out to your cost that the personal ambitions of such an individual are “crooked.” Such an employee would be perfectly unscrupulous in finding out your secrets and getting you into his power.

The second finger is the Finger of Saturn. If it is straight and well-shaped, its owner will be serious and responsible and inclined to melancholy. But beware if this finger is crooked.

The third finger, if extremely long and straight, indicates an extraordinary desire for glory, celebrity, and publicity. Although this might be a good quality for an actor, preacher, politician or public man, it may be undesirable for a private secretary, or clerk to some family lawyer.

If this finger is crooked and long, all the above qualities will be intensified. The love of spending money and fondness for show will be more marked, the gambling tendencies pronounced. No position involving the handling of money should be entrusted to the possessor of such a finger.

The fourth, or little finger, if long (passing the nail joint of the third) is indicative of power of speech and subtlety in choice of language—the saying “to twist a person round one’s little finger” originated from this sign. Such people have a fine gift of speech and eloquence, valuable gifts for orators and public persons, but not for a wife if her husband is fond of sleep.

A short “little finger” denotes the reverse of the above. Such persons find the greatest difficulty in expressing what they want to say, but they can write better than speak and should be encouraged to do so.

These individuals, however, lack power over others. The shorter the “little finger” is, the more timid they are in the presence of strangers. If this finger is crooked, these weaknesses are emphasized even more, but if formed crooked and long the power of eloquence is also crooked. Such people are natural born liars.

The first and third fingers absolutely of equal length is the best sign of an equally balanced mind, but such a sign is rather rare to find.

When the fingers are supple in the joints and turn backwards or outwards from the palm, it is an indication of a quick wit and clever brain; but such persons lack continuity of purpose. They have no “hold,” as it were, on any one thing.

Fingers slightly curved inwards toward the palm denote persons slow to grasp an idea, or a subject, but such people have retentive memories and “hold” any one thing they may take up.

THE FINGERS—LENGTH TO ONE ANOTHER

The Smooth and the Knotty

The Finger of Jupiter, when long, gives love of power and command over others. When short it denotes dislike of responsibility and lack of ambition.

The Finger of Saturn when long gives prudence, love of solitude and a reserved, studious disposition. When short it denotes frivolity and general lack of seriousness in all things.

The Finger of the Sun when long gives love of the beautiful, desire for celebrity and fame, but when excessively long, the tendency inclines more toward notoriety, risk in speculation, the love of money and gambling. When short it denotes a dislike of all these things.

The Finger of Mercury when long gives mental power, grasp of languages, and power of expression, especially in speech. When short it denotes difficulty in speaking, and in the expression of thoughts. When crooked, with an irregular Headline, it is an evil sign of Mentality.

When the fingers are long in proportion to the palm, they denote intellectual power. When short and stubby, the subject is inclined to gross materialism.

When the fingers lean toward one another, they take after the qualities expressed by the finger toward which they lean.

DIFFERENT SHAPES OF FINGERS

A wide space between the thumb and first finger denotes independence of will and fearlessness.

When wide between the first and second fingers, independence of thought. Between the second and third fingers, independence of circumstances. Between the third and fourth fingers, independence of action.

Smooth-jointed fingers are more impulsive than those with “knotty joints”. The “knotty joints” arrest impetuousness, give reflection and love of detail in work. More often found in the hands of great organizers and those requiring thought and reflection in carrying out their plans.

E IS FOR THE EIGHT MOUNTS AND E-READINGS #A TO Z APRIL CHALLENGE

E IS FOR THE EIGHT MOUNTS AND E-READINGS #A TO Z APRIL CHALLENGE

The simplest divisions of the hands are the eight areas on the palm called “Mounts”.

Learning about the mounts of the hand is a way to understand a whole lot about a person in a short period of time.

The Mounts of the Hand and Their Meaning

According to the world- famous palmist Cheiro, the Mounts of the Hand vary in accordance with the character and characteristics of various races and their different temperaments.

In almost all the Southern and more emotional races, says Cheiro, these Mounts are more noticeable than those belonging to Northern countries. He observed that all people with the Mounts apparent or prominent are more swayed by their feelings and emotions than those people who have flat palms and undeveloped Mounts.

The names given to the Mounts of the Hand are those also given to the seven principal planets that affect the destiny of our earth: the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

These names were given to the Mounts by the Greeks, and were associated by them with the qualities attributed to these seven planets, such as:

Characteristics of the Mounts

The Mounts of the hands may be elevated, flat, or depressed. Elevated mounts show a physical, direct approach to the aspect represented by that mount. Depressed mounts denote a mental, or indirect approach to that aspect. Flat mounts show no real influence in the subject’s life. There are eight mounds in all. Their characteristics follow:

  1. The Mount of Jupiter
    Ambition, Ego, Drive for Power, Achievement, Leadership, Domination.
  2. The Mount of Saturn
    Serious, Intellectual, Somber, Melancholy, Reserved.
  3. The Mount of Apollo (aka Sun)
    Brilliance, Creativity, Artistic, Beauty, Emotional Fulfillment, Fruitfulness, Success.
  4. The Mount of Mercury
    Communications, Spirituality, Commerce, Science.
  5. The Mount of Venus
    Passion, Lust, Desire, Sensuality, Love.
  6. The Mount of Mars Positive
    Physical Courage, Martial Spirit, Aggression, Vitality.
  7. The Mount of Mars Negative
    Mental Courage, Inner Strength, Resistance, Changeability.
  8. The Mount of Luna
    Imagination, Reproduction, Fear, Sexuality, Romance.

Interpretation Practice:

Example 1

The Mount of Jupiter is elevated dark red.

Procedure:
Mount of Jupiter = Ambition, Ego, Leadership, Power.
Elevated = Outward action and projection of influence.
Dark Red = Anger, Temper.

Now simply transpose…

The (Mount of Jupiter) is (elevated) (dark red).
The (Ego/Ambition) is (acting on) (anger).

So we know that a large red Mount of Jupiter means that the actions taken to further the ambitions are based on anger and temper.

Example 2

The Mount of Saturn is depressed black.

Procedure:
Mount of Saturn = Serious, Moody, Intellectual.
Depressed = Mental, Indirect.
Black = Proud, Haughty, Unforgiving, Vengeful.

Again we simply transpose…

The (Mount of Saturn) is (Depressed) (Black).
The (Intellect) is (thinking about) (Pride/Revenge).

So we know that a depressed black Mount of Saturn means that the person’s thoughts have turned to pride and revenge.

Now apply this technique to each of the mounts on your hands, first answering the questions:
1) Which mount is it?
2) Is the mount elevated, flat, or depressed?
3) What color is the mount?

*********

But don’t trust your interpretation of your own hand. Back in ’73, a clairvoyant palmist told me you cannot accurately read your own hand because your aura gets in the way. She’s the same palmist who told me, if I could break out of my shell, I’d find a love that would knock my socks off. She was right, and I tell his story in my memoir Angel Hero, Murder in Hawai’i, A True Story.

Which brings me to a warning about e-readings. Check out the palmist’s background before dishing out your hard-earned dough for such a service, and study up so you know at least a little about palmistry first. When I researched the topic yesterday, I saw very few palmists who even listed what they charged.
