Q is for Questions about Palmistry Blogging A to Z Challenge

Do you look at the right or left hand?

Study both hands. In traditional palmistry, if you are right handed, they say “the left is what the gods give you, the right is what you do with it.” This is misleading; the lines on both hands change because we do things with both hands! Your writing hand is your dominant or active hand. It reflects the conscious you, your public face, you “out in the world,” what you have actively developed. The other hand, the passive hand, is about the subconscious, your private face, the inner you, your instincts, and your latent abilities. We compare both hands to see the “whole” person.

Aren’t the lines on the palm just creases formed by hand movement?

People who are skeptical about palmistry and hand analysis say that the palmar lines are just folds or creases in the skin where the hand moves, grasps and bends. But if the lines were caused by folding, why do most of us have two “transverse creases” (Head and Heart lines) on our palms instead of one (Simian line)? The main argument against them being crease lines is that the lines on the palm are all present by the time the fetus is 3 months old. The lifeline forms at 7 – 8 weeks gestation, heart and head lines at 9 – 10 weeks, but the muscles needed for movement of the hand don’t form until 11 weeks, when reflex movements first occur. Voluntary hand actions don’t start till 23 weeks. The nerve endings, which stimulate the muscles, are forming around the same time as the lines. So the lines are there before even reflex movements are possible and long before voluntary muscular movement of the hand exists.

Can palmistry tell how long I will live from my lifeline?

No, the life line does not foretell length of life, so no worries if you have a short lifeline! Modern hand reading (chirology) tells us a lot about your health, energy and lifestyle. A short line may mean you need to use your energy in short bursts with rests in between. More common than a short line is one which stops and re-starts, usually with the two lines overlapping for a while. This shows some sort of change in your lifestyle.

I learned about Life line length the hard way. I had taken a weekend palmistry course and learned the main lines when I read the palm of my dear friend Vic (the hero of my memoir Angel Hero, Murder in Hawai’i, A True Story.) He had a long life line, no breaks, so no serious accidents or illnesses. I told him he had a long life. But I didn’t know how to look for indicators of violence in the palms. Turned out I was dead wrong.

Can palmistry predict my future?

Although fingerprints never change, the palmar lines and markings change throughout life. If the future was all mapped out for us, the lines would stay the same. When looking at a hand, we see the person as they are NOW, bringing their past with them and sowing seeds for the future. Although many palmists do make predictions, they can only foresee probabilities. Most predictions are based on the direction you are going now. We all have free will to make choices and changes in our lives today that will affect our future and change our “fate” along with the lines in our palms.

How to read hands?

Read palmistry books, maybe take a course, gather as much information as you can, test it on lots of people. Then you will gradually learn how to do it. It’s not something you can learn overnight, or ever stop learning. Everyone is unique so there are always new combinations of features to look at on people’s hands. The combinations are the important thing. You have to look at every feature in conjunction with everything else on the hand. Don’t get hung up on signs and symbols such as a star on the mount of the moon, or believe that such markings are omens. You need to see the whole picture, which is way more than the sum of its parts.

What, you may ask, is phrenology? Phrenology is the detailed study of the shape and size of the cranium as a supposed indication of character and mental abilities.

PHRENOLOGY AND PALMISTRY COMPARED

It’s amazing how accurately Palmistic markings dovetail with Phrenological revelations.

The disciples of Phrenology believe that every one of the principles laid down by the ancient and modern Chiromants or Palmists follow the tenets of Phrenology, which  uses the eyes to discover the prominence or lack of prominence, in this or that organ. However, the following ten organs cannot be surveyed without the help of the fingers.

These four occupy the back part of the head:

(1) Amativeness

(2) Parental Love

(3) Inhabitiveness

(4) Friendship

Laterally placed are:

(12) Cautiousness

(16) Conscientiousness

(17) Hope

Behind the ears are located:

(5) Combativeness

(6) Destructiveness

(7) Secretiveness

It is reassuring to know that these ten organs, hidden from view because they are on the head, are so clearly represented in the hands that the qualities they represent are available even at a glance.

The corresponding marks in the hands for the ten organs listed above are described below. All of these are recognized by the fathers of Phrenology.

(1) Amativeness

The faculty concerned with physical love and sexual attraction. When strongly developed, it may represent carnality and licentiousness.

Represented by the developed Mount of Venus, and by its being rayed and cross-rayed. The Girdle of Venus, imperfect, broken and duplicated, indicates immoral habits or tendencies.

(2) Parental Love

Indicated by a large development of the Mount of Mercury toward the Percussion where the children lines are marked. Also by a well-formed Mount of Venus with few lines or cross-lines.

(3) Inhabitiveness

Love of country is indicated by the absence of any lines of voyage or travel and also by the Line of the Sun. Also by a soft hand with fingers that are not spatulate, and by short nails, which give a love of ruling one’s home. The most prominent Mount will he Jupiter, as Jupiter folks are fond of giving dinners and parties and of adorning their homes in every possible way.

(4) Friendship

Fondness for social intercourse is characterized by developed Mounts of Venus and Jupiter, a good Line of the Sun, a short thumb and square, smooth fingers. The Line of Heart is long and forked at the start, and a Line of Head slopes slightly towards the Mount of the Moon. The presence of the Line of the Sun will add to a poetical tendency and a generous heart.

(5) Combativeness

Both Mounts of Mars are fully developed but without rays. The Mount of the Moon will be smooth and the nails generally short.

(6) Destructiveness

The Mounts of Mars and the Moon are exaggerated. Few lines in the hands. The Line of Heart is very deep and red, and runs like a straight bar from one side of the hand to the other. Often a “clubbed” first phalanx of the thumb (also called a Murderer’s Thumb).

(7) Secretiveness

The Line of Head will be very narrow and straight, cutting the whole hand. The Mount of Mercury is fully developed. Both knots on all fingers are quite pronounced and the fingers long; the Line of Heart is thin and short.

(12) Cautiousness

Diffidence or hesitation, is represented by the pure Saturnian type with very long and knotty fingers. The Line of Head is connected for a long space with the Line of Life and is Straight and very long. A very long thumb, a narrow Mount of the Moon, and insignificant Mounts of Mars.

 (16) Conscientiousness

Love of fair play, or integrity, is shown by very square fingers. The knots are not very visible and the nails are short. The Line of Head is straight. A strong Mount of Venus and a good Mount of Jupiter, with the Mounts of Mars visible but not rayed. The Mount of Mercury is insignificant.

(17) Hope

A much developed Mount of Jupiter. Fingers pointed and smooth, a thin Line of Head drooping toward the Mount of the Moon and ending in a fork. A long Line of Heart, the Mounts of Venus and the Moon quite prominent. Slight Mounts of Saturn and Mercury and a short pointed thumb. The Line of Head is usually separated from the Line of Life. Often the third finger is almost as long as the second.

O IS FOR OBSERVATION OF THE FINGERS

O IS FOR OBSERVATION OF THE FINGERS

The characteristics described below are easily observed and can help you rapidly judge a person’s character. Practice unobtrusively observing the fingers. Are they short and stumpy compared to the rest of the palm? If so, the individual has an animalistic nature and coarse instincts, and belongs to the lower order of humanity.

If the fingers and palm are of equal length, the owner belongs to a more cultured race. His ancestors were more intellectual. For all work requiring a higher mentality he or she could be depended on, whereas the first-mentioned type could not.

If the fingers look unusually long and thin, and out of proportion to the palm, the man or woman will have too much idealism and refinement and is unsuitable for business or work requiring “level headedness” and practicality. Such a man, however, could be depended upon for personal mental work, research, science, literature, philosophy, educational work or anything else relating to the higher qualities of the mind.

If his fingers were also knotty, he could be depended on for all work requiring thoughtfulness, detail, and concentration of mind.

If, on the other hand, these long fingers were smooth jointed, he would be impulsive and lack a sense of detail, would be visionary, artistic, emotional. Such a person would be suited to artistic work, such as painting, making designs, models, etc., but could not be trusted to perform anything requiring detail, research or science.

THE FINGERS CONSIDERED SEPARATELY

The first finger is called the Dictator, the Lawgiver, the finger of Ambition, or the Indicator. If this finger is almost as long as the second, these tendencies are extremely pronounced. This person can safely be trusted with charge of others. But should this man or woman have a first finger that is long and crooked, their personal ambitions are “crooked.”

If the second finger is straight and well-shaped, its owner will be very serious, inclined to melancholy, but will discharge his responsibilities unless this finger is crooked.

The third finger, if extremely long and straight, indicates a great desire for glory, celebrity, publicity and the like. This is an extremely good quality for an actor, preacher, politician or public man, but not so good for a private secretary, or confidential clerk to a family lawyer.

If this finger is crooked and long, the above qualities will be intensified and exaggerated. The love of spending money and showing off will also be more marked, the gambling tendencies pronounced. No position involving handling 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” came from this very sign. Such people have a marvelous gift of speech and flow of language.

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

These individuals have, however, not much power over others and the shorter the “little finger” is, the more timid and sensitive they are in the presence of strangers. If this finger is crooked, then these weaknesses are all the more emphasized, but if formed crooked and long, eloquence is also crooked. Such people will tell any “fairy tale” to suit their purpose—they are born liars.

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

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

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

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.

 

 

 

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

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.

D is for Destiny #A to Z April 2017 Challenge

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.
