What are mounts and plains in palm reading?
After you’ve identified the hand type, begin observing the palm’s natural topography. Fleshy areas called mounts and plains are related to different life themes. The classic mounts correspond with the seven classical planets within astrology: Apollo (the sun), Luna (the moon), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Rounded, slightly elevated mounts reveal attributes that are balanced and well-proportioned, while sunken mounts expose an individual’s “blind spots” or underdeveloped qualities. Lastly, extremely prominent mounts reveal dominant characteristics that may be exaggerated or overemphasized.
What is the Mount of Jupiter?
Located at the base of the index finger (and above the Mount of Inner Mars), the Mount of Jupiter symbolizes confidence, ambition, and leadership. It reveals a connection to the spiritual realm, along with divine aptitudes.
What is the Mount of Saturn?
The Mount of Saturn is located at the base of the middle finger. This area corresponds to wisdom, responsibility, and fortitude. It reveals an individual’s integrity, as well as their deep understanding of the ups and downs of life.
What is the Mount of Apollo?
Situated beneath the ring finger, the Mount of Apollo derives its name from the sun god of classical antiquity. Within palmistry, this area of the hand corresponds with an individual’s optimism, vitality, and dynamic essence. Just as zodiac sun signs expose individuals’ innate identity, the Mount of Apollo showcases artistic inclinations, happiness, and potential for success.
What is the Mount of Mercury?
Below the pinky finger, the Mount of Mercury is connected to communication and intelligence. This region is linked to wit, adaptability, and social skills, revealing an individual’s strategic mind and resourcefulness.
What is the Mount of Luna?
Named after the ancient Roman goddess who personified the moon, the Mount of Luna symbolizes imagination, intuition, and psychic powers. Located toward the bottom of the palm on the pinky side, this area reveals an individual’s empathy, compassion, and imagination.
What is the Mount of Venus?
Located at the base of the thumb, the Mount of Venus is linked to love, sensuality, and attraction. This zone showcases natural magnetism, as well as an individual’s emotional connection to romance. Sexuality, passion, and indulgence are all under the auspices of this region.
What are the Inner Mars, Outer Mars, and the Plain of Mars?
Mars shows up quite a bit in palmistry. Named for the Roman god of war, these three distinctive sections represent aggression (Inner Mars), resilience (Outer Mars), and temperament (Plain of Mars), respectively. Inner Mars, also referred to as Lower Mars, is located above the thumb, and it symbolizes physical strength. Outer Mars, or Upper Mars, represents perseverance and emotional bravery. The Plain of Mars occupies the lower center of the palm and demonstrates how these two aforementioned qualities are balanced. Because the Plain of Mars is usually flat, its significance is determined by which lines occupy this section.
