A gift marking in the hands shows special talent to be recognized and lived. Specific challenges are associated with each gift marking. When properly seen, these challenges point the owner to the master path of the associated gift.
The owner of a long head Line that curves deep into the palm considers ideas, thoughts, and activities that are influenced by deep meaning in life. People with this type of Head Line have felt the trap that Persephone felt after Hades kidnapped her (image above) to make her his wife. Held against her will, Persephone was trapped in the dark, dismal, gloomy Underworld.
Your life is not your own
If you have this deeply curving head Line, you most likely understand the feeling of depression. It doesn’t mean you are depressed but you know what it means to be depressed. Like Persephone, you have experienced despair associated with “your life not being your own.” You are sensitive and responsive to your environment, including the feelings of all beings.
As she matured
As Persephone matured she opened her heart to Hades and to the other lost souls ensnared in the underworld. Likewise, as you mature you develop a deep compassion for others that can develop into life work as a guide for people who have been led astray or trapped.
Queen of the Underworld
A deeply curving head Line represents a potential path to mature into the Queen of the Underworld, handling hidden and all-consuming emotion, where reason has no place. Persephone also knew that she would return to the bright world above in spring each year. You have a genius for understanding others who enter into their own world of deep and unpredictable waters.

The power of choice
After describing the implication of this type of head Line to one client, she confirmed the analysis saying, “Oh, yes, that’s me.” Unexpectedly, I dive into a very dark place. I’m used to it now, so I have a mini fridge in my room with ice cream in it. I comfort myself on my favorite fluffy bedspread with DVDs next to my TV. I do know I’ll eventually resurface to everyday life.” Persephone did resurface out of the darkness, after choosing to do so, and realized her power in the decision and in her journey.
Guide for Lost Souls Positive: I am able to be fully and completely present with deep sadness, maintain compassion, and steer others to their inner light.
Guide for Lost Souls Negative: Immobile, I remain a victim of kidnapping by hopelessness, believing I have no way out.
Mantra: I willingly open myself to deep emotion and am appropriately available to myself and other lost souls ready to “come back to life,” again, feeling joy.

In this short lesson you will learn about a powerful gift marking called the Jupiter Star. The owner of this marking has the gift of influence and leadership.
The Jupiter archetype can be owned by both women and men; adults, teens and children. The owner of a Jupiter Star is gifted with exceptional vision, the ability to wield power and requires a fitting throne to feel most fulfilled. And above all, he or she has the ambition of a super achieving Valedictorian (named by Richard Unger).
In Roman mythology Jupiter was known as the god of the sky and king of gods. His identifying implement was the thunderbolt, his sacred animal was the eagle and his sacred tree was the oak.
According to Wikipedia, “As the sky-god, he was a divine witness to oaths, the sacred trust on which justice and good government depend.”
To understand this lesson, you want to sense into the symbolism associated with the king of gods.
Eagles fly at high altitudes and they never surrender to the size or strength of their prey.
The lightning bolt is a weapon to strike the disrespectful who are without reverence for the vision of the sky-god.
Jupiter Star Examples
Jupitarian fictional example: The film “The Man in the Iron Mask” stars Leonardo DiCaprio in dual roles – one as the hidden twin brother as the man in the iron mask (Phillipe) and the other as a villain-King (Louis). The film centers around four aging musketeers during the reign of King Louis XIV. Witty scenes cleverly switch the two twins (with opposing visions) at various times. Near the end, the musketeers “stand for one and all for one” to take down the villain-King so that the man in the mask (twin brother Phillip) would stand in as the ‘good’ King. Ultimately the musketeers are named as the good-King’s (Phillip’s) royal counsel as he becomes one of France’s greatest kings.
Jupitarian real life example: Melinda Gates was recently interviewed on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah because of her magnanimous fundraising efforts to help women receive education on contraception. She raised something like 2.6 billion dollars for contraception awareness. Stated on her web site is, “Access to family planning information and contraceptives can change lives. Every woman and girl deserves the chance to determine her own future.” The goal of the organization is to bring access to high-quality contraceptive information, services, and supplies to an additional 120 million women and girls in the poorest countries by 2020.
On the interview Gates explained how men in power continue to influence what happens to women’s bodies. While men are the primary source controlling funds this extraordinary philanthropist (Melinda Gates) must find a way to get men to think from the position of women. To do this she asks the men, “What future do you see for your children, and specifically your daughters?” Melinda implied this question as a successful route to help men identify with girls and women in ways they never would otherwise. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the world’s largest private charitable organization.
I would guess Malinda’s Gate’s life purpose includes Leadership, Influence and Power. She may very well have a Star of Jupiter, as well.

What I’d say during a mini hand reading:
You are an ambitious woman gifted with the ability inspire and influence. You have the forte to galvanize change in the world. You may sense an invisible and constant ‘push’ on your back to keep moving forward toward a goal. Ideally the outcomes benefit the entire realm. At your best you are benevolent, allow the chain of command to operate and handle confrontation with grace and ease.
The negative possibility with the star on the Jupiter mount is taking the back seat to another leader, manager or King/Queen and act as the lady behindthe throne. However, while in position behind the throne, the followers will still most likely see you as the one to follow.
The Jupiter Star indicates the twinkling effects of gaining experience by claiming your authority, pointing the way for others with your vision, reigning over your own King/Queendom.

The shape of the Mercury Line, the Line of Intuition, 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.
Understanding the meaning of life through crisis of meaning
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, also known as the Line of Intuition, 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.
However, 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.”
Interpreting the symbols of the soul
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.
Myss 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. Caroline’s 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 Intuition 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. This is 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 expected. Recognize and bring the oppositions together as perfect ingredients for fuller expression of highly attuned perceiving.
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.
