Line of Intuition

The shape of the Mercury Line reveals the nature of a person’s capacity and style for perceiving. Straight Mercury Lines belong to people who are curious and have keen insights. Curving Mercury Lines, as in Figure 1 below, belong to individuals who are in constant contact, consciously or unconsciously, with the celestial, attuned to messages from the Divine. Because this line bows around the Moon mound, you’ll find someone with a natural capacity for diving into crisis of meaning and somehow finding words to make sense of it. On their advanced path, they understand the meaning of life and construct careers as transformational coaches, life purpose consultants, spiritual advisors, life strategists, counselors and ministers.

The owner of a Mercury Line that arcs around the Moon is curious about and considers elements related to dreams, spirituality, the subliminal, unmet emotional needs, and the reality of beliefs. People with Mercury Lines resembling the Figure included in this article have most likely found themselves asking themselves, “What’s the point of living?” and/or “Why are we here?” during times of alienation, stagnation and feeling trapped in the illusion of separation from the self. While the potential of constant contact with the Divine is very high, equally and opposite is the possibility of not trusting what’s ‘coming in’ and remaining focused entirely on logic instead.

If you have this deeply curving Mercury Line, you most likely understand the feeling of disillusionment and disappointment with life. A sense of despair has led you to ask, “Why?” which is a crucial step toward listening inward for answers. As you stop struggling with the sense of desolation, let go of reason, and accept that you just don’t know why, you find that you surrender to higher intelligence, which then begins to operate through you. You can then allow and trust this special internal mechanism within you that is constantly attuned for deep inner awareness.

After teaching about of this type of Mercury Line in my certification program, one student with this configuration confirmed the description saying,

“I worked 14 years in a job where I had little to zero contact with other people. I worked on secret projects and could never talk about my work. I got sick a lot with migraine headaches, felt alone and numbed out. I finally quit that job because I realized life should not be just making money and paying bills. My heart was longing for freedom, freedom for creative expression. I craved deep, meaningful connections with people instead of just working on computers and projects in isolation.”

She has since developed her skills by becoming a Reiki Master /Healer, ThetaHealing® Practitioner, an influential speaker, and intuitive Scientific Hand Analyst and is now working as an inspirational counselor, interpreting the messages marked in the hands to the owners so that they can know why they are here and how to live with meaning in their lives.

After contemplating the interpretation of the Line of Intuition on her hand, another certified hand analyst told me:

“Yes, I do relate to the natural capacity for understanding the meaning in the life crisis -in my own and in other’s, and I have a near compulsion to explain it to a person who’s in the middle of a crisis. I can make sense of things (from an interior perspective), and when a person is asking for my input and is ready to receive it, I can help them make sense of their experiences. Explaining to someone who isn’t ready to hear it leaves me feeling unseen and misunderstood, and is probably boring or annoying for them. I find that my audience is not always interested, especially not at work so it is a challenge to moderate my natural intuitive communications to fit into the analytical workplace style. I’ve really developed a good practice and the experience to know and trust what’s coming in most of the time, and I can vouch for the experience of constant contact, anytime I put my attention on it, its there. But being immersed in the logic of my technology company workplace is like that unsettled, off balance feeling when you don’t trust your own gut. In the office there are lots of interruptions and I’m surrounded by people all the time. It’s a hectic place and instead of listening to and trusting my intuition, I’m usually just reacting to my environment. With the primary focus on logic for the job it’s hard to go deep and open up to listen and receive.”

Medical Intuitive Caroline Myss exemplifies what this marking is about as a translator of meaning through her lectures about the invisible energy system running through our bodies called the chakras. In her book Anatomy of the Spirit she interprets the symbols of the soul in easy to understand lessons. She has become very well known through helping people learn the language of the human energy system so that they can better understand themselves as a way through spiritual challenges. Her life revolves around deciphering meaning in everything around her. In her case she intuits illness as it relates to energetic power leaks within a person. Does she have this line on either of her hands, or both? I don’t know but I’d like to find out.

Intuition is a skill anyone can develop, and would benefit by doing so. If you don’t have this line in your hand it doesn’t mean that you’re not intuitive or cannot be intuitive. By having this Line of Clairvoyance there is a higher probability, on the path to mastery, that the challenges will be quite evident. What I mean by this is that reliance on logic and ignoring the hunches you’re getting will block development. I think of this simply as a road sign indicator letting you know you’re off track and ‘correction’ is needed. Will you trust what you are sensing from within?

Internal oppositions are normal. When they are recognized and brought together you’ll have the perfect ingredients for fuller expression of this gift of highly attuned perception.

Mantra: As I follow and trust myself through my own crisis of meaning I am able to skillfully support others through exploration of the deeper parts of themselves.

Five Additional Variables for Vocational Hand Analysis – Part III

Five additional variables to look for in the hands when doing a vocational analysis are:

1. The Finger Zones are essential features because the size, length, width and girth give a striking clue as to additional emphasis regarding the owner’s ideal niche. Typically, one of the 12 finger zones, or sections, is most eye-catching. The most noticeable finger section directs me to inquire with the owner about his or her skill or desire in the related area. Below are high-level descriptions related to each of the finger zones.

Index/Jupiter Middle/Saturn Ring/Apollo Pinkie/Mercury
Upper Zone Visionary Wisdom Studies Mental arts Brainstorming
Middle Zone Ambition Security Design Negotiations
Lower Zone Territory Foundations Display Sex energy

As you know, desires are not always pursued for a variety of reasons. And skills are not always developed. However, the most-visible zone must be considered if the owner wishes to find fulfillment.

2.  Thumbs are one of the most important considerations when determining if working for others or the self would be favorable. As an example, Oprah’s thumbs span widely from her palm. This large area between her hand and the tip of her thumb shows desire for a wide range of influence. The wider the angle between hand and thumb tip, the bigger the territory the owner must have to manage. Likewise, the closer the thumb rests to the hand, the less responsibilities he or she wishes to administer. He or she would do better, and most likely prefer, to be employed for someone else, leaving work at the same time each day.

3.  The length and quality of the Fate Line (vertical line climbing from the bottom of the hand up toward the middle finger) reveals drive toward values, which in turn equate to money. A long, noticeable vertical line rising toward the middle finger shows a person with their foot on the gas and hands on the steering wheel with a clear plan, direction and determination.

4.  The Life Line shows the level of vitality available to the owner. Deep, long and curving Life Lines indicate stamina, recuperation skills and physical balance. Life Lines that are short or frayed show a scattering of energy; the anchor typically keeping a buoyant ship in place is untethered.

5.  A variety of other markings in the hands would also be considered. There are too many to mention here.

Keep in mind, no one indicator in the hand will uncover the vocational solution. The ingredients must be artistically combined to expose the inner masterpiece waiting to shine.

To summarize, the first component in the hand to assess for vocational selection is the hand. So far we considered the following variables (shape, lines and markings):

– Hand Shape archetype

– Dominant finger

– Strongest Mount

– Heart Lines

– Gift Markings

– Finger Zones

– Thumbs

– Fate Lines

– Life Lines

– Other Markings

In Part IV we’ll consider the soul’s curriculum encoded in the fingerprints

After traveling to India in May 2010, where Kay was deeply inspired, she founded the American Academy of Hand Analysis (AAHA). She has been practicing hand analysis since 2003 and teaching workshops and classes since 2005 . Her life’s work for more than two decades has been devoted to studying, practicing and inspiring exploration, deep discovery and prosperity. She is the author of Your Life Is In Your Hands; Practical Palm Reading for Purposeful Living.

How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.

How To Find Your Right Vocation So You Can Live Your Best Life Part I

Slide1
Finding True North

Have you found your “right” work, yet? If so, was it an easy road to discover your ideal vocation? Or did you have to drag yourself to work you didn’t like on your path to get to your ‘just right’ work? Or are you asking yourself, “What else could I be doing rather than ‘this’? Or do you just feel flat out – stuck?

Clients see me when they feel empty and unfulfilled, which is exactly how I felt before deciding to leave my corporate career of 23 years in 2009. By outer world standards I had the optimal career and a killer salary!  I was truly happy for many early-years at Hughes Aircraft Company. During the later-years I was proud to say, “I work for the Boeing Company.” However, the tasks I did didn’t thrill my Inner satisfaction meter.

People typically ask me for guidance when they are

·      Looking for something new, but are just not sure what it is

·      Preparing to leave an old job or way of life

·      Looking for validation that they are currently on the right path

·      Feeling under utilized at work and want more responsibility and a promotion

·      Preparing to retire and wondering what to “do” next

·      Hesitating to quite a job they hate when they are within 5 years of retirement

 

This is when hand analysis and coaching pair together for optimal results because people can move through change with clarity and conviction. I believe people truly want to step into a bigger aspect of themselves.

Everyone seeks fulfillment and each person has a unique formula for fulfillment.

When have you felt fulfilled and how did you know you were?  For me I have feel deep inner peace, centeredness and a sense of equanimity. 

Traveling through the Trees
Where is your path taking you?

Synonyms for “fulfillment” include:

·      Contentment

·      Satisfaction

·      Serenity

·      Happiness

·      Self-Realization

·      Success

On a scale from 1-10, 10 being happiest, 1 being hopeless, where would you rate yourself right now?

After my mom died in 2005 my life took a drastic turn toward optimal living. All the sudden life became very, very precious to me. She always encouraged me to not only work, but to do work I loved.  

Look for following articles how to use the concrete map in the hands to pinpoint a person’s purposeful vocation using God-given gifts and talents for harmonious employment. It is literally inscribed in the hands. I’m excited and honored to share this with you so that you can live your very best life for the rest of your life!

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

Below is an article written by Catherine Doe, reporter with the Valley Voice newspaper serving Tulare and Kings Counties in Central California. It was printed November 21, 2013.

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

by Catherine Doe

We are each a soul living a human experience. Did you ever wonder what your soul’s agenda is? All you have to do is look at your hands. Or have Kay Packard, founder of the American Academy of Hand Analysis, read your hands for you.

When Kay was 38, she woke up one day and asked herself, “Why am I here? Because this can’t be it.” It took five more years of searching, but after some friends encouraged her to get her hands read it changed her life.

“I was just blown away by what the hand reader told me about myself,” she recalled. “I couldn’t even articulate it.”  She eventually quit her high-paying job as a project manager for Boeing and became a fulltime hand reader. “I’m not in it to make a million but it is very fulfilling. There is nothing else I want to do in my life, especially those times when someone learns something new about themselves.”

Our daughter, Mercedes, a freshman at Exeter High School, was eager to get her hands read, so I drove her up to Kay’s Three Rivers studio to discover her life’s purpose.

 Kay Packard printing Mercedes hands

Kay Packard studies the handprint of Mercedes Oldenbourg (above)

Kay starts by taking prints of both hands. Because we live in a right-handed world, even lefties use their right hand most often. Only one percent will predominately use their left hand and Kay can tell because the left print will come out stronger. The right hand represents the person in the outside world and the left hand represents how they are at home.

Her analysis is based on both the physical hands and the small details that can be better seen on the prints. Living in Three Rivers could limit her clientele, but Kay does about ninety percent of her readings by long distance, either over the phone, Skype or on the computer. She sends the client a print kit, which is returned with their payment. Kay has thousands of prints and keeps an archive in case the client wants her to do a follow-up reading and compare any changes that might have happened in the hand’s lines.

Kay starts the reading by examining her client’s fingerprints. “I look at the finger tips to see what the soul’s agenda is,” said Kay.

Your fingerprints were formed when you were in the womb five months before birth and are unalterable from that point forward. She can’t tell you when you will get married or how many babies you will have, but your fingertips can tell you what your soul wants to experience. She will be able to see what life’s lessons will come your way and what challenges you will face. Coming to an understanding that struggles are really life lessons is what makes a hand analysis such a transformative experience. A client’s view can fundamentally change from negative feelings of sorrow and anger, to feelings of gratitude for their struggles.

“Those struggles will ultimately strengthen your soul’s purpose,” said Kay.

The lines on your hand, such as the heart, life and head line, and any markings that stand out like whorls, dots or stars, can reveal some of your talents, gifts and strengths. Your palm also reveals some of the challenges you are facing in life.

After letting her eye wander over Mercedes’ hand, like looking through a forest and seeing what pops out, Kay revealed that Mercedes’ life purpose was to be a teacher. This does not necessarily mean a teacher in the traditional sense but could mean being a mentor or guide or example.

“She is the go-to girl for information,” Kay explained.

Service apparently is Mercedes’ life path, and when she teaches in the line it is going to bring her great satisfaction. Mercedes will pursue three avenues of service: one to herself, a second to her family, friends and community and a third to make the planet a better place. One of her biggest life challenges will be to keep these three areas of service in balance and not lose herself in the process.

One of Mercedes’ biggest life challenges will be engaging in power struggles. People will try and have authority over her, or will be telling her what to do and when. She will have to learn to stand her ground and and decide for herself when, and how, she is going to be of service.

“By default, your little soul is a helper: reliable, dependable and capable of doing a great job,” said Kay.

Another challenge for Mercedes will be to figure out when to jump into a relationship or when to stay back. She is also a healer, which ties into her teacher role, in the sense she has the capability to listen and give people good advice – leading them to be able to heal themselves.

The heart line, the first major line on your palm, reveals how you relate to people and how you like to be treated. Mercedes had a hermit heart line, which means she needs to have her own space, her own sanctuary. She needs to take her time to decide how she feels and needs to be alone with her thoughts. Surprises aren’t her thing and loyalty is important to her. She won’t have a large group of friends but a few good friends.

The middle line on your palm is the head line, which represents your mental system. Mercedes head line indicates that she is very creative and more emotional, which is in conflict with her hermit line. Kay advised journaling to relieve this conflict between the two.

The life line is the last of the three dominate lines on your palm. It does not indicate how long you will live but how vital your energy system is. A long clear life line means that you have good health and bounce back quickly if you get sick.

Other prominent features on Mercedes’ hands were her girdles of Venus, the star of Apollo, and a peacock on her index finger, which meant she was sort of a maverick. Kay also looks at each finger and the shape of your hand. The dominant finger is the straightest and most prominent. The shape of the hand can be determined by taking off the thumb and determining if you have a square, pear or other shaped hand.

Kay was emphatic when she said that anyone can learn to do hand analysis. It does take some intuition, but intuition develops by default after doing readings for awhile. Everything is a vibration, and hands are a vibrational imprint, so “I’m not only looking at your hands but I am feeling them also.” This intuition can develop by itself, but Kay’s graduate program at the University of Santa Monica had techniques that helped her tap into her inner voice.

Kay just finished writing her first book, Your Life is in Your Hands and is currently looking for a publisher. In it she reproduces fifty handprints so that readers can pick out markings similar to theirs and do their own mini-reading.

Whether teaching hand analysis through her book or trainings, Kay wants people to live a more profound and meaningful life. As she sees it, “the soul-print for anyone’s life is locked in the skin carvings on the hands and most importantly the fingerprint patterns.  How amazing is that?”

Do you have the line of Inspiration on your hand?

By Kay Packard, M.A. 

The Line of Inspiration runs upward on the Jupiter mound toward the pointer (Jupiter) finger. Jupiter, as part of Greek mythology, is known as a visionary with high ideals for the kingdom.  There’s not much room for the Jupiter Vertical Line to sit on the palm so even if this line is short, the owner will feel compelled to move forward motivated by her or his vision.

This line can sprout off the life line (see handprint below with arrow pointing to the vertical line), stand alone or be seen in multiples. If you have this line you’ll do well to clarify your ideas and utilize your zeal of ambition to inspire others to follow their dreams.  If you aren’t already, consider expressing your innate power in an influential role in a high profile career or as a home wrangler aiming all tasks and home inhabitants toward goals. You might say, “I’ve got the need to achieve. Or “You can do it!”

Line of Inspiration
Line of Inspiration

Notice in this handprint (above), she has both a long vertical line under the Jupiter (Index) finger and a dominant Jupiter finger. The dominant finger is the finger that looks ‘the best’ out of all four digits. The combination of both a long Jupiter Vertical Line and a strong Jupiter finger, denotes a positive force of Jupiter – the sky god, seeing the big picture, influencing for the good of all.

My clients with a vertical line under Jupiter, inspire others toward their potentials like coaches and ministers.  Its often easier to boost others to their aspirations than they do to their own, however, that, in itself, brings fulfillment to the inspirer.  Some palmistry books call this the line of ambition, but I do not. There is a correlation between ambition and inspiration. Ambition stems from desire. People with ambition motivate themselves and others toward a goal, with purpose. I’ve seen many ambitious, determined, driven people without this line.  I don’t usually associate the word ambition with this line unless I said something like, “It looks like you have ambition, based on your vision, to inspire others.”

If you don’t have this vertical line, and you inspire others to their greatness, keep it up! There are other markings in the hand that support your  actions to motivate.

Palmistry 101 ~ Radical Transformation and Healing

The Pluto zone sits on the outer edge of the palm, mid way, just below the start of the heart line.  When I see a line starting in this section of the palm and curving up toward the ring or middle finger the owner is best suited for a career in ‘death, transformation and regeneration’. Coaching people to move through radical change such as paralyzing sports injuries, homes lost during disasters, and unexpected job loss would be a good fit.  The individual with this etching has a keen ability to understand the natural process of change.

AAHA Hand Map
Pluto and the Pinkie

If you have this line, your good hair day probability is that you regularly act as a channel, crusading from rubble to renovation to revelation. You may find yourself witnessing devastating loss leading to profound life awareness’s. You would also use your abilities to move through change, like Kubler Ross who studied and taught about five stages of grief. Ultimately you inspire others and shine the light to step onward and upward.

If the owner of a Pluto line is having a bad hair day, she may feel stuck in the muck where she has experienced deep loss herself and hasn’t moved out of it yet. Maybe she is morning the loss of her grandmother after ten years. There is a healthy period for grieving the loss of a loved one. However, remaining too long in depression or denial is unfavorable to living a fulfilling life.

With the line of Pluto, the potential to guide and direct others through unchartered territories is a talent to investigate and cultivate in order to live a meaningful life.

Tip for the Radical Change Agent: Continue to strengthen your abilities to deal with and embrace the unexpected and align your career with your natural skill set.

Gift Markings, when found on the hands, reveal a person’s potential aptitude, ability, skill, and talents – in short their gifts in very specific areas.   Talents aren’t always realized because people can be reluctant to come out in their fullest potential.  It’s easier to play small for most people.

One example of a gift marking is when a person has six or more vertical lines on the mount under the pinkie finger. The lines don’t drop below the heart line.  This is the mark of the Gifted Healer who has profound psychological insights. The Gifted Healer is considered a growth catalyst for personal development. Her friends inherently solicit her counsel for problems because she has a ‘listening’ ear.  She personifies sage wisdom.

On a good hair day she is in tune with her Inner voice, trusting the insights she perceives. She is available to herself enough to listen to, hear and respond to That Voice. She uses the gift for her own relationship, family and career challenges. The upside potential for someone with eight or more vertical stripes is to be a Healer for Healers. Professional Healers such as Therapists, Health Coaches, Veterinarians, Ministers and even Hair Dressers  go to this soul-centered-practitioner for counsel and guidance. At her best, the Gifted Healer is a cheerleader for her clients, practicing as a profession.

The bad hair day possibility for the Gifted Healer is that she’ll ignore her inner voice.  Snubbing the inner voice leads to blocked intimacy in relationship.  If you have these markings check your life flight pattern for dead end relationships or dodging exposing your truth to you mate. You’ve undoubtedly said to yourself, “Oh, if only I would have responded to that little voice inside, I would have saved myself a lot of grief.” You’re learning to work through trust issues to get to a point of trusting your self in all situations.

Tip for the Gifted Healer: Listen and respond to your inner voice even if it says, “Don’t take that job with the incredibly high salary” or “No, don’t date that super model” or telling your husband of 25 years, “I plan to enroll in school a help people heal themselves.”

If you have both a line of Pluto and the mark of the Gifted Healer, I’d consider you an Insightful Guide for Rebirth. Your life fulfillment blueprint includes weaving both of these skill sets as a livelihood.

Keep in mind:

1. You want to be a Healer but you don’t have the Gifted Healer mark? Not to worry. Follow your heart and be grateful you probably won’t experience the bad hair day possibility to the extreme degree of the person with the vertical stripes under the Pinkie finger.

2. We are on a learning journey.  We veer off track to know where the next segment of our life path is to be found. To find the middle of the road we must drive on the reflectors in the center lane as well as run off road into a few road signs. Cautionary devices awaken us to balance.

3. If you don’t have these markings, it doesn’t mean you can’t live in these good hair day possibilities.  You can do what you set your mind to.

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.

Watch for the next lessons on the Pluto Line and the vertical lines under the pinkie finger.
