Rising From The Mount Of The Moon
Rising from the Mount of the Moon the Fate will be more
eventful, changeable, and largely depending on the fancy and caprice of
If such a line be found joining the Line of Heart, it
foretells a happy and prosperous marriage, but one in which idealism,
romance, and some fortunate circumstances play their role, and one which
results more from the caprice or fancy of the person of the other sex.
If the Line of Fate be itself straight but with a line running in and
joining it from the Mount of the Moon, it indicates that
the influence of some outside person has helped the subject's Fate, and
it is generally an indication of the influence of another sex to the one
on whose hand it appears.
When this line of influence from the Mount of the Moon does not, however,
blend with the Fate Line, it denotes that the other
person's life will always remain distinct, and the influence will last
only for the length of time that it runs by the side of the subject's
When this influence line cuts the Line of Fate and, leaving it, travels
on for some distance towards the Mount of Jupiter it
tells that the person whose influence it denotes will only be attracted
to the subject by personal ambition--that this person will use the
subject for the furthering of his own aims and ambitions, and will desert
the subject when she is of no further use. This is more commonly seen on
the hand of a woman than on that of a man.
If the Line of Fate ascending the hand sends an offshoot from it on or
towards any of the Mounts, such as to Jupiter, the Sun, or Mercury, then
the Destiny will be more largely associated with the quality that the
Mount it approaches symbolises.
For example: If such a line be seen approaching or going towards Jupiter
it denotes responsibility, power of command over others,
or some high position which will commence to be realised from the date
when the offshoot leaves the Line of Fate. If such a mark continues its
course and finishes on the Mount of Jupiter, it is one of the most
magnificent signs of success that can be found for that particular aim or
If this offshoot ascends towards the Mount of the Sun
the success will be in the direction of riches and public life, which
will give great publicity or renown; this is also a magnificent sign of
If the offshoot goes towards the Mount of Mercury, the
success it indicates will be more in the direction of some special
achievement either in science or commerce.
If the Line of Fate itself should not ascend towards its habitual
position on the Mount of Saturn, but, instead, run up towards or on to
any other Mount, then the whole effort of the life will be tinged with
whatever quality that particular Mount signifies. Such an indication must
not, however, be considered as the certain or sure sign of success as
when the Line of Fate keeps to its own place and sends branches to some
When the Line of Fate ascends the hand without branches and runs like a
lonely path up and on to the Mount of Saturn, such a person will be like
a child of Fate chained to an iron road of circumstances. It will be
impossible for him to avert the trials of his Destiny or mitigate them in
any way. He will receive no help from others, and little will ever happen
except to bring him sorrow or tragedy. Such a mark of Fate through the
hand must never be considered as "a good line of Destiny."
To have a really good Line of Fate it should not be too heavily marked,
but just clear and distinct, and, above all, be accompanied by a Line of
Sun in some form or other.
If a Line of Fate run over the Mount of Saturn and up into the base of
the finger, it is an unfortunate sign, as everything the subject
undertakes will get out of his control, and he will not apparently know
how or when to stop in whatever he takes up.
When the Line of Fate appears to be stopped by the Line of Heart, the
career will always be ruined through or by the affections being badly
When, however, it joins the Line of Heart and they together ascend the
Mount of Jupiter, the subject will have happiness
through his affections and will be helped by love and affection to attain
his highest ambitions. He will also be extremely lucky through the
friendship and love of those he meets, and will be greatly benefited and
helped by others.
When the Line of Fate appears to be stopped by the Line of Head,
it foretells that his career will be spoiled by the
subject's own stupidity or mental foolishness.
