Palmistry Lesson ~ Venus and Jupiter

Simple Lessons in Palmistry

Many people ask me, “What does this mean?” As they point to a mysterious marking in their hand. Maybe you have wondered about a few markings in your own hands.

In all aspects of the hand there is an upside and a down side possibility. I like to say a good hair day/bad hair day potential. When I have my hair done at the salon there is a likelihood for a great outcome that I’m really happy with or something that needs to be redone!  Eeek.

Throughout your life, haven’t you experienced exceptional hair days and miserable hair days? This is the dance to a just right hair day?  Sort of like Goldilocks moving through the beds that were too hard and too soft to get to the bed that felt just right.

See the simple hand map below along with a few descriptions of markings.  Check your hands – and your friends too!

AAHA Hand Map

Venus is the goddess of love and pleasure. The Venus mount is the area where the thumb plugs into the ball of the palm. Pink ink is showing the expansion of the Venus zone. If this area is rounded and full – sort of voluptuous looking – it indicates an man or woman who is sensual and in touch with her appetites whether they consist of lush velvet curtains and romantic candles, fancy wine and cheese or hunky men with appealing bodies to touch.  Tip for a voluptuous Venus: Enjoy your passions but keep those desires in check.

Alternatively, if this Venus mount is flat, hard to the touch, and straight along the edge of the mount, the owner may be challenged to find joy in their life.  She may be all work and no play. A person with a flat Venus zone might complain about being bogged down with work and responsibilities and unable to express where she feels joy in their life. Tip for a flat Venus: Keep a joy-journal.  In the joy-journal, identify what brings you delight. When do you feel your best and how can you bring more of delight and enchantment into your life?

Jupiter is known as the Sky God with exceptional vision and requirements for a large territory.  If someone has a 6-pointed star, like an asterisk on the mount under the index finger, then I’d read her as an ambitious woman gifted with the ability to influence.  She has the forte to galvanize change in the world. She may sense an invisible and constant ‘push’ on her back to keep her moving forward toward results.

The bad hair day possibility with the star on the Jupiter mount is that she could take the back seat to another leader, manager or King and act as the lady behind the throne. She would eagerly align the kingdom to the other leader(s). However, while in position behind the throne, the followers will still most likely see her as the one to obey. Ideally, she is gaining experience and aiming to claim her authority, pointing the way with her own vision, reigning over her own Queendom. Tip for the gifted leader: Oversee from your own throne to feel most fulfilled.

If you have both a full Venus mount and a Star on Jupiter then others may see you as a charming and generous leader, lavishing your followers with the deliciousness of life.

Scattering into Stillness

Yesterday while I was walking along a fairly deserted road in the foothills below Sequoia National Park I was overcome by an acute sense of panic.  It was hard to comprehend, at the time, because I was surrounded by some of the most majestic scenery on the planet.  My stroll took me through Oak trees of all species, bumble bee quality flowering foliage, lush green mountains, romantic rocks, and the view of Alta Peak towering at 11,000 feet.  I compare the view of Sequoia National Park to the Swiss Alps which I visited many years ago. 

During the walk I was making a conscious effort to keep my feet on the ground and to ‘slow down’.  My mind runs amok on an ‘occasional’ basis.  The more I attempted to s l o w  d o w n the more I was consumed with a greater sense of urgency to keep moving.  I actually sensed a level of guilt for not doing more. Attempting to silence my mind put me in direct contact with its opposite: sheer panic.  Why was this happening? 

I have been rewarded quite nicely by society for accomplishing results and being in constant deed. If I slow down, “What will I do?”  “Who will I be if I’m not doing something?” “OMG, I might die if I’m not producing something!”  

These are real thoughts I experienced yesterday on what I had hoped would be a peaceful outing.  It’s ironic that one of my highest priorities, right now, is to experience Stillness.  Often is the case that our truest desire puts us in direct conflict with ‘its’ opposite.  In this case: Silence vs pandemonium. 

How does this happen?  Conditioning, patterns and addictions have formulated the path of our existence.  I’m addicted to working, producing, responsibilities, tasks, schedules and the call to perfection.  I have to classify this as an addiction because of the reaction I have when I even think about not having these scenarios in my world.  This doesn’t mean those ‘things’ are bad.  I’m simply seeking an adjustment to my internal volume control.  Might you relate? 

There are specific configurations in the hands that can point to this type of internal feeding frenzy.  See if you have any of these six designs in your hands or fingerprints.  They involve either the Life Line or the Arch fingerprint.

Palmistry Basics ~ Flirting with the Land in the Hand

Palmistry Basics by Kay Packard

Within the beautiful and magnificent hands are numerous aspects and characteristics to ponder.  All of these various aspects are contained within each of us.  The hand map is a simple diagram showing the descriptions for some of these facets.  A line or marking in the hand can specify a particular element that distinguishes you from everyone else.  I’d like to introduce you to some fundamentals of palmistry because I’ve found this art and science to be incredible for deep self awareness and enriched personal empowerment.  I’ve seen people from age eight to eighty benefit.

Areas of the hand, such as the fingers, mounts, and specific markings, can mold themselves in accordance to how we engage particular traits in our own lives.  We are whole beings with a whole hand – times two!  As the hand can be compartmentalized, we too can be recognized with various partitions of attributes in our interior make-up.  For example, you may be motivated to lead while also being gifted at writing.  Or you may have a knack for spiritual counsel as well as achieving endless tasks. The shape and quality of your index finger tells me about your preferences and talents as a leader.  The fleshy mount of the Moon, at the bottom of the palm, near the wrist on the outer edge of the palm gives me a clue as to your interest in spirituality.

As we give attention to certain things in our lives we consciously and often times unconsciously, compose our life-movie-scenes.  My life movie involves innovative teaching with great passion, amongst other things.  You too follow a theme as part of your life movie.

The hands can be read to clearly show how a person is using or living with these various aspects in their life movie.  You have a concrete blue print, in essence a life map, at the end of your own arms.  Take a look.  What do you see?

For example, the Thumb represents results, accomplishment and will for success.  Every single person will approach this aspect of life in a completely different way.  Let’s consider a simple example. If someone has a large Thumb, relative to the rest of the hand, and its set away from the hand, the owner will generally prefer to grasp and handle on a large scale. Conversely, a person with a smaller thumb, relative to the rest of the hand, and is held more tightly to the palm, will be more inclined to keep to themselves with less will to do.

It is important not to make judgment or assessment of anyone based on only one characteristic.  It’s important to look at a variety of points to determine a more accurate picture.  Think of an ant as a presence and contribution of individuality to the whole of the living ant colony. We won’t get a whole picture of the ant colony by looking at only one of the workers. To appreciate the reason for the ant colony, with its beauty and significant contribution to the nature of things, it would be better to study a variety of the moving insects, to analyze their operations and to understand their purpose.  I remember when I was first introduced to the idea (and fact) that some ants can carry 100 times their own weight.  After being told, I had to go watch the ants in the dirt in my back yard.  While I didn’t have equipment to measure the miniature weeds and ant-food being swiftly hauled on their backs, I could see what they carried weighed more than the micro creature itself.

Back to hands. 

The way I look at this, fingers are like antennas receiving and transmitting energy.  Mountains on the palms allow space for the energy to be used.  And lines etched in the hands illustrate the flow of energy along our neurological ‘bi-ways and hi- ways’.  I also consider us as vibrational beings.  The imprints on our naked bodies, in the form of lines on and shapes of the hands and fingers reveal a vibrational code, if you will.  The skin carvings (a.k.a dermatoglypics) of the fingerprints also reflect an energy imprint.  These patterns, or codes, can be analyzed, deciphered and translated from palmese to words that can be understood.  These words, describing the meaning in the hand- print is considered a ‘reading’.

Just about anyone over the age of four can learn how to read hands.  Depending on the desire and motivation advanced levels can also be achieved.  Today, let’s keep it very simple.

Below is a simple diagram of the hand with preliminary descriptions for the fingers and mounts. The descriptions come from the ancient art and science of hand reading.

 

A few charlitains and mis guided palmists have given the language of the palm a bad taste.  But that is actually the case with many trades.  For example, there are a small handfull (no pun intended) of doctors, lawyers, photographers and guru’s who may have demonstrated the negative side of their work. To encounter the best outcomes in your life-movie, it’s important to be curious, ask questions, follow your intuition, take personal responsibility for your investigations and perform according to a well writen script.  To have a more informed opinion of palmistry and hand analysis you are wise to visit with and read about hand analysis from highly qualified and professional hand analysts.

In this basic context of palmistry, we focus on a non-predictive approach where there is an upside and a downside to each identifiable attribute in the hands. As with your hair, there are good hair days and bad hair days!  Each characteristic identifiable in the hand, be it a heart line interpretation, a strong finger definition, a star, a grill or a hand shape, all have “plus” and “minus” sides. Assimilating both sides is crucial for personal understanding and development.

You may want to learn to read hands for fun out of curiosity or you may be in the process of learning how to read hands professionally.  No matter where you are in the spectrum of reading palms there are many positive outcomes.  Clients have reported the following benefits:

– Self knowledge and awareness

– Validation of deep knowings ‘within’

– Information to make better life-choices

– Self acceptance

– Clear articulation of strengths and weaknesses and what to do with both

– Ability to see opposing characteristics within the personality and declare steps for personal wholeness

– Understanding that every person is living their own life, in their own way

– Freedom to be me

– Clarity in why one is here

– Instead of wondering around with an invisible blindfold, one can use the life map etched in their very palms for life guidance.

Keep your eye out for my next article illustrating the major and vertical lines in the hands.  The major lines are the heart, head and life lines.  The vertical lines reach up the hands toward each of the fingers.

Inspiring and Intense Artistic Mastery

I’d like this 8-Year Old to be on my radar for years to come because of a few significant markings on her left hand (below).  One particular line called the Line of Apollo is stretching from the bottom of her palm up toward her ring finger (in pink).  While it is running a jagged course it still very much indicates the design of a professional artist.  Think of someone in the spotlight, maybe on the silver screen, who is a writer, performer with voice and instrument and possibly even a director, all wrapped in one.

She also has a Simian Line running horizontal along her hand from one side to the other (dark teal).  The key word for this line is intensity.  The emotional and mental systems are merged together.  They form a union and lend to the owner doing what they do with all of their being. 

Because of the inside organization of emotions with thoughts there can be a sense of misunderstandings with others.  With extra care in the communications department  – which means purposeful practice in clarifying messages – she can develop into a master of communications.  Combine the preceding with the last minute veering of the Apollo Line toward the pinkie finger – the finger of communications – and we may see a theme of interpreting and translating in original and innovative form. 

As a reminder, I am not making predictions about her future.  The lines can change and are most likely to change with her personal development.  The markings in the hand tend to indicate the preferences and inclinations of the owner.

One other line to note is the orange vertical line reaching up toward the index finger.  This is the line of inspiration and ambition.  This tells me she has an urge to surge with vision.  Her high ideals stimulate her vision and thus lead to her inspiring nature.

When combining just these three lines she has the talent of an inspiring and intense artist on her way to mastery.  Skills are required to develop mastery and in her case the following will help: practice and persistence in communicating her creative wants, visions, ideas and innovations; then doing them! 

On a side note, her life purpose is the Successful Pioneer.  As she handles the arrows, stands true to her values and trusts her inner voice, I’d imagine we’ll see big things from this little one.   Stay tuned!

 

Hand Analysis of The Passionate Explorer

Below are two markings in the palm of the hand to give me a clue that this 15-year-old is on a passionate exploration at Life U.   

What I explained to her:

The purple line running across your palm at the top of the hand is your heart line.  This type of line is called the Passionate heart line.  This tells me that you like excitement and despise boredom. You can express your emotions with a fire-like nature – quick and blunt.  This line also indicates that you are charismatic and people like to be around you, like they would a campfire.  People become mesmerized by the ‘colors’ you exude – blue, red, purple, orange… all those fire-like colors.  The passionate type usually does a good job at expressing her “I wants”.  While you may not always get them, expressing what you want is healthy because you express the energy that wants to be expressed like a river unblocked by a damn.  The upside of your heart line is that you are fun, outgoing, excitable, enthusiastic and passionate.  On a ‘bad day’ you can move into YOUR ‘I wants’ too deeply and forget the desires of others. To balance this it’s good to maintain your desires AND also consider the desires of others.  

The pink curving line toward the bottom outer edge of your palm tells me you seek out stimulation as an explorer and investigator.  Again, boredom will drive you crazy so it’s good that you read and have many new opportunities at high school to satisfy your inquisitiveness.  You can also think of this as being a line of curiosity; you like to keep things interesting. Seeking the un-ordinary is ordinary for you.

With the highest ranking fingerprint on your right ring finger, your Life purpose is the Artist – the Woman in the Spotlight being true to her muse.  Expressing your SELF is the most important thing you can do – it’s what you came here to do.  Your life challenge is to feel accomplished and successful while being true to YOU, standing your ground…. all on the life foundation of Peace and Harmony.  I read your ‘challenge’ from your fingerprint patterns on your right Thumb, right middle finger and left ring finger.  The arches on your fingerprints resemble mounds of the earth.  The earth is secure and provides a solid foundation.  You’ll feel best when you feel secure.

As with most things, to know one side you have to know the opposite.  When it comes to Peace, a person, like you, will best know Peace by experiencing and moving through sensations of Panic.  You may feel panic running through your body at different times under various circumstances.  The best thing you can do is to BREATE your way through it and silently remind yourself that you ARE SAFE.  You do have nice long vitality/life lines so you are able to ‘ground’ with ease. 

Observations: What’s attention-grabbing is the paradoxical combination of the deep desire for peace and harmony along with the need to explore and investigate the unusual.  Oddly enough, for this youngster, her tranquility could very well be found in her most stimulating adventures.  With a flirtatious flair, she could push the envelope, dance to the edge and sing to the masses with the circ-de-sole, as an example.

 

Hand Analysis X-Ray Vision

See if you have x-ray vision showing in your hands. One or more arcs on the mount under the Index (Jupiter) finger is called the “Rings of Solomon.”  The owner of these lines typically has an unerring ability to understand human character and offer profound counsel.  S/he can be a teacher who brings deep insight since they are able to see through the façade of things. The more rings the stronger the ability and the need to be a major theme in the life.   If the line(s) are straight the owner is more inclined to use reason when ‘seeing’.  If the line(s) are curved and arcing on the Jupiter mount the owner will include more emotion in their counsel.

Heart Line Fork – Bend-Over-Backwards

Do you rearrange your emotions for others?  Check the Heart Line configuration in your hand.  If you have a line forking off the main Heart Line that looks like a waterfall, you may be rearranging your feelings and actions based on your perceptions of others’ needs and feelings – specifically someone who you view as an ‘underdog’. See the example below where the heart line and the fork are shown in purple.  This indicates a person may often say “Yes” when they really, really want to say “No”.   Hurting feelings is to be avoided at all cost.

Suggestions:

1) Notice the internal emotional rearrangement happening within you

2) Be conscious of YOUR desires and feelings

3) Take your time to silently address another person’s emotional needs without responding right away to his/her words.  Give yourself time to ask yourself what you’d like to do (based on #2 above).

4) Give yourself permission to say “Yes” or “No” in self-loving way.

5) Release self-judgment and critism that you should be emotionally connected in any other way than you are.
