Whorl Pattern in the Palm – Mars

It’s quite exciting for a hand reader to find a Whorl pattern in the palm of the hand. To find a Whorl in both palms of a person’s hands is doubly sensational.

In nature, the Whorl (above) is not ordinarily found. Although you’ve probably seen them on the digits (fingers and thumbs) of the hand. The concentric circles, creating the whorl symbol, can also be found on the surface of a tree trunk after it’s been cut down.

Finding a Whorl in the Mars Mount of the hand is a big deal and must be elevated to great importance in the reading. Advanced Martian living becomes the life purpose, where the owner will feel most fulfilled and satisfied in his or her life.

These two hands (above) came across my desk this week and both, belonging to the same owner, have Whorls on the Mount of Mars (inside pink colored circles). Some professional readers may call these glyphs Peacocks and I wouldn’t argue. Either way, the implication needs to be elevated to Life Purpose position.

 

About Mars

Mars (Roman)/Ares (Greek) is known as the God of War.

Ares as the embodiment of aggression, has been one of the strongest forces working through human history. He is Olympos’ “Action Man,” the god of war and strife, the restless and turbulent lover, thriving on conflict and rejoicing in the delight of battle. In Ares we see our own aggression raw and bloody, before civilization tempered or repressed it. – Arianna Stassinopoulos, The Gods of Greece

“Of the twelve Olympians, The Greeks places Ares in the least respected position because of his irrationality and battle frenzy. He represented the uncontrollable lust for battle and bloodshed. In contrast, as Mars, the Romans held him in high regard, second only to Jupiter (Roman)/Zeus (Greek) in importance.” – Jean Shinoda Bolan, Gods in Every Man

The story and imagery portrayed in mythology is fascinating. The archetypal associations in our lives is quite relevant when more deeply investigating and understanding our motivations, values and preferences.

 

Life Purpose

When describing what the Whorl in the Mars zone of the hand means to the owner, the hand reader will be spot on when dialoging about the Mars/Ares archetypal patterns of engagement.

When discussing a strong Mars Mount, Star or Whorl in this area I refer to Diana/Wonder Woman with women, Clark Kent/Superman to men and the Incredible Hulk to children and teens. Each represent Hero’s and Protectors. Brutus (as in Popeye), as Brawler, is an alternative side of Mars that will most likely be part of the owners learning journey at some point or another.

Ares and Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, were notable lovers. Both love and war come together in this union. Great passion is portrayed in love and war so unleashed passion is not surprising for the Action Wo/Man. Having an appropriate outlet for this eminent level of vitality is important for the health and well-being of this archetype.

Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well-marked Mars zone, which includes a Whorl here. The Warrior needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. The Whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage and bravery must be exercised.

Martians do best when using their fierce nature, defending those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, veterans or battered women – to name a few. However, if this hero-type doesn’t have an appropriate cause for all this energy, he or she just may end up feeling weak and cowardly, or the opposite – impulsively violent.

 

Advanced Path

Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of a Mars Whorl must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward. The aim is to evolve from Ares into Mars, the battle-lusting Greek God of War into the protector of the community, successfully navigating conflict as the Roman Mars.

Look for the Mars archetype in the following vocations: Commander in Chief, Athletic coach, building demolition, construction, conflict resolution, advocacy.

Key words: Protector, passionate, naturally assertive, directed action, adventurous, impulsive, combative, impatient, forceful.

Below are conversations had on Facebook about the above article after being posted:

Jennifer Hirsch such a precious find, magnificent! I wonder about the contradiction of the less assertive traits shown in the short low set water finger of the left hand…. fascinating!

American Academy of Hand Analysis Good eye Jennifer. With the low set and short Jupiter, he might go either way – less assertive and lacking confidence and/or pushy, getting angry when feeling disrespected.

Jennifer Hirsch ja! I get that 🙂 the obnoxious Napoleon thing.

Brent Bruning “The Greeks places Ares in the least respected position because of his irrationality and battle frenzy. He represented the uncontrollable lust for battle and bloodshed. In contrast, as Mars, the Romans held him in high regard, second only to Jupiter (Roman)/Zeus (Greek) in importance” — brilliant, love it. And they are overwhelmingly attracted to being the hero for underdogs no question. I found this in the horror film director Michael Steiner who wrote the film Grounding in defense of the people who lost their job, as well as a great horror film Sennentuschi. My brother has one as well – who built an international company rescuing reclaimed tai-furniture (wagon wheels) and making it as furniture. Mars has a conflict side for sure and all of them are attracted to hot irons. But they also have a playful side, the need for liberation and exalt and defend the childlike freedom and kids’s rights to explore boundaries and go through initiations. Great article. My brother below. No conflict there hahaha.

Mars Action Man

American Academy of Hand Analysis P.S. Your bro fits the Martian image!

Brent Bruning He has been a lifelong case study. Fought in high school, had the Mustang car at 14, very popular with girls and guys looked up to him, worked his way through college, fought during his graduation, left the corporation after 2 years to travel the world, surf, bartend and live in a shipping container on a beach in hawaii, start his own company, tear it all down, craft furniture, work with kids at camp, work with kids at university… everything mars.

Bully Buster

Do you have the markings of a bully buster? Look at the Inner Mars zone in the palms of your hands.  One of many key words for this zone is stamina.

Mars Zone

 

When looking at your Mars zone, either hand, do you see any of the following markings:

– Fullness/puffiness
– Star (6 pointed asterisk)
– Whorl
– The start of your Head Line
– Grills

Mars Star

Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well marked Mars zone. Mars is the archetype for the warrior and he (or she) needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. A star shows the gift of bravery. The whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage is exercised. With the Head Line starting inside the Life Line, the owner will do well to advocate for those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, or battered women – to name a few. However, if this hero-type doesn’t have an appropriate cause for all this energy, he or she just may end up feeling cowardly, or the opposite – rageful. Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of one or more of the markings above must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward.

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.
