A is for the Astrological Connection of Palmistry and the Planets #AtoZApril2017Challenge

Interested in palmistry? If you are, you’ll notice many astrological terms used therein, such as Mounts of Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury, Line of Mars, etc.  Why, you ask? Because palmistry and astrology have been linked for centuries. Each finger is associated with a planet. For example, the base of the thumb is associated with Venus, the outer edge of the palm with the moon.

(For myself, I became interested in palmistry when I read a man’s hand who had murderer’s thumbs. And he later murdered his friend. But that’s another story. The story, actually, of my book Angel Hero, Murder in Hawai’i, A True Story. But I digress.)

Originally, it was thought that the planets influenced the makeup of the hands. The traditional names of the various parts of a hand are linked to the seven visible planets—the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. However, palmistry can be understood without knowing anything about astrology.

The Public and Private Hand

Take a ruler or a pen and lay it down either hand, from between the two middle fingers down to the wrist. The side of the hand that includes the thumb concerns public life, so it has an “Ascendant” and “Midheaven” vibration to it, like in Astrology. The other side of the hand connects more closely to relationships and home life, having a “Descendant” and “Imum Coeli” (bottom of the sky) feel to it.

The Jupiter, Saturn, Sun, and Mercury Sections

In the diagram above, you can see that the index, two middle fingers, and little finger (and the mounts below them) are designated Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Mercury, in that order.

The art of palmistry, aka palm reading, hand reading, chirology or chiromancy—also spelled cheiromancy  from Greek kheir (“hand”)—has to do with understanding character and foretelling the future through studying the palm. Palmistry is practiced all over the world, with as many different variations as there are cultures.

There are many different interpretations of various lines and features across palmistry schools. These contradictions and lack of scientific evidence that palmistry’s predictions are accurate have a lot to do with academics’ perception of palmistry as a pseudoscience.

Ancient palmistry

The practice of palmistry is widespread in India, Tibet, China, Persia, Sumeria, ancient Israel and Babylonia.

According to Wikipedia, the acupuncturist Yoshiaki Omura discovered palmistry has its roots in Hindu astrology, the Chinese I Ching, and Gypsy fortune tellers. Thousands of years ago, the Hindu sage Valmiki wrote a book titled The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry.

From India palmistry spread to China, Tibet, Egypt, Persia and Greece. During the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church actively suppressed palmistry, calling it pagan superstition.

Modern palmistry

Cheiroy.jpg
Cheiro was an influential supporter of palmistry during the late 1800’s.

In 1839, Captain Casimir Stanislas D’Arpentigny’s publication La Chirognomie kicked off a revival of interest in palmistry. In 1889, Katharine St. Hill founded the Chirological Society of Great Britain to advance palmistry and to prevent charlatans from abusing the art. In 1897, Edgar de Valcourt-Vermont (Comte de St Germain) founded the American Chirological Society.

The most influential person in the modern palmistry movement was Irish William John Warner, known by the nickname Cheiro. After studying under gurus in India, he set up a palmistry practice in London and enjoyed a wide following of famous clients from around the world, including famous celebrities like Mark Twain, Sarah Bernhardt, Mata Hari, Oscar Wilde, Grover Cleveland, Thomas Edison, the Prince of Wales, and Joseph Chamberlain. So popular was Cheiro as a “society palmist” that even those who were not believers in the occult had their hands read by him. The skeptical Mark Twain wrote in Cheiro’s visitor’s book that he had “…exposed my character to me with humiliating accuracy.”

(More about Cheiro in tomorrow’s blog post: C is for Cheiro and the Church.)

William John Warner, popularly known as Cheiro (derived from the word cheiromancy, meaning palmistry) lived from November 1, 1866 – October 8, 1936. He was an Irish astrologer and colorful occult figure of the early 20th century. A self-described clairvoyant who taught palmistry, astrology, and Chaldean numerology, he was celebrated for using these forms of divination to make personal predictions for famous clients and to foresee world events.

Born in a village outside Dublin, Ireland, Cheiro acquired his expertise in India. As a teenager, he traveled to the Bombay port of Apollo Bunder. There he met his Guru, an Indian Brahmin, who permitted him to learn from an ancient book that contained many studies on hands. After studying thoroughly for two years, he returned to London and started his career as a palmist.

Widely followed by famous European and American clients during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Cheiro read palms and told the fortunes of numerous famous celebrities. So popular was Cheiro as a “society palmist” that even those who were not believers in the occult had their hands read by him. Of the Prince of Wales, he wrote that “I would not be surprised if he did not give up everything, including his right to be crowned, for the woman he loved.” Cheiro also predicted the Jews would return to Palestine and the country would again be called Israel.

The book Titanic’s Last Secrets includes a detailed account of one of Cheiro’s palm readings with William Pirrie, chairman of Harland and Wolf, builders of the Titanic. Cheiro predicted that he would soon be in a fight for his life, talking about the battle surrounding the Titanic sinking.

Cheiro ran up against the Church during a period when its powers were growing and the early Fathers were jealous of the influence of this old-world science. Palmistry was persecuted by this early Church and convicted of being the offspring of “pagans and heathens” without even being given a trial. Denounced as sorcery and witchcraft, palmistry was said to be firmly under the devil’s grasp.  The result was that the study was outlawed, and fell into the hands of vagrants, tramps, and gypsies. In spite of this persecution, almost the first book ever printed was a work on Palmistry, Die Kunst Ciromantia, in Augsburg in 1475. Palmistry is older than any other system in the world.

In the original Hebrew of the Book of Job (chap. xxxvii., ver. 7), we find these significant words: “God caused signs or seals on the hands of all the sons of men, that the sons of men might know their works.”

As the student of anatomy can build up the entire system from the examination of a single bone, so may a person by a careful study of an important member of the body such as the hand, apart from anything superstitious or even mystical, build up the entire action of the system and trace every effect back to its cause.

Today the science of the present is coming to the rescue of the so-called superstition of the past. Scientists are slowly sweeping aside prejudice and beginning to study occult questions. Perhaps the “whys and wherefores” of such things may one of these days be as easily explained as are those wireless waves of electricity that carry messages from land to land.

THE LINE OF DESTINY OR FATE

The Line of Destiny, or Line of Fate (see 1-1 below) is one of the most important principal lines of the hand because it indicates the main events of one’s career.

In some cases it may look faint or shadowy, as if the path of Destiny is not yet clearly defined, while in other instances almost every step of the road is chiseled out.

The famous palmist Cheiro said that some people appear to have no Fate, while others carve their Destiny from day to day. The following is distilled from his philosophy about Destiny:

*********************

Fate exists for all. Throughout the Bible, the Destiny of nations and men is clearly laid down. The trials and tribulations of the Jews was prophesied ages in advance. Thousands of years before Christ’s birth, it was foretold how He would be born, how He would die, that He would be conceived by a Virgin, that a Judas would betray him, and that both were necessary “that the Scriptures might be fulfilled.”

Medical science has proven there must be a change in the brain cells years before a change in physical life results. Every deed in our careers is the result of some such mental change. There are so many nerves from the brain to the hand, it follows that changes in our lives are written in our hands years in advance. Therefore, all living beings have a Destiny that helps shape their ends.

Whatever our Fate may be, if we strive to discover God’s plan for us, then we will find it easier to accept whatever God tasks us with, and carry it out to the best of our ability.

******************************

Cheiro’s philosophy would seem to indicate that the only free will man has is to choose whether or not to obey God’s commands; to hear His words: “O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river.”—Isaiah 48:18.

I struggled with this issue of free will versus fate when my dear friend was murdered by a man with murderer’s thumbs (described in my book Angel Hero, Murder in Hawai’i, A True Story.) I concluded that, although the killer had thumbs indicating he had a violent temper, he could have chosen to control it. (More about murderer’s thumbs when we get to the letter M.)

What do YOU think about fate versus free will?

THE LINE OF DESTINY (OR FATE)

This line may rise from the following distinct positions: Out of the Lifeline (2-2), straight up from the wrist (1-1), from the Mount of the Moon (3-3), or from the middle of the palm.

RISING FROM THE LIFELINE

Rising from the Lifeline (2-2), the subject’s success will be made by personal effort. The early years of such a Fate will be cramped and difficult, and such people will be greatly hampered or sacrificed to the wishes and plans of their parents or relatives.

RISING FROM THE WRIST

When the Fateline rises from the Wrist (1-1) and goes straight up the center of the palm to the Mount of Saturn, provided at the same time the Sunline (4-4) is found well marked, luck, brilliance, and success will attend the Destiny, and extreme good fortune may be anticipated.

RISING FROM THE MOUNT OF THE MOON

Rising from the Mount of the Moon (3-3) the Fate will be more eventful, changeable, and largely depending on the fancy and caprice of other people.

RISING FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE PALM

When the Fateline makes its appearance far up in the center of the palm, in the Plain of Mars, it indicates a hard early life and that the subject must always have a hard fight to gain his ends.

MOVING ON

Far too many variations of the Destiny line exist to address in this limited space. Tune in tomorrow for E AS IN EIGHT MOUNTS AND E-READINGS.

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.

F is for Fingers #A to Z April 2017 Challenge

 

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.

I hope you found today’s post finger-licking good! Tomorrow’s post title will be G is for Good Reasons To Learn About Palmistry.

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.

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.
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!

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.
