The Mounts Of The Hand And Their Meaning

The Mounts of the Hand vary in the most remarkable

manner in accordance with the character and dispositions of races and

their different temperaments.

In almost all the Southern and more emotional races, these Mounts are

more noticeable than those belonging to Northern countries. It has been

observed that all people with the Mounts apparent or prominent are more

swayed by their feelings and emotions than those people who have flat

palms and undeveloped Mounts.

The names given to the Mounts of the Hand are those also given to the

seven principal planets that sway the destiny of our earth, viz., the

Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

These names were given to the Mounts by the Greek students of this

subject, and were associated by them with the qualities attributed to

these seven planets, such as:

Venus = Love, sensuality and passion.

Mars = Vitality, courage, fighting, etc.

Mercury = Mentality, commerce, science.

Moon = Imagination, romance, changeability.

Sun = Brilliancy, fruitfulness, success.

Jupiter = Ambition, power, domination.

Saturn = Reserve, melancholy, seriousness.


In my own long experience I could not help but remark the intimate

relation between the effect of these great planets of our Universe and

humanity in general. Although it would not be within the scope of this

work to teach also Astrology in these pages, I must, however, in order to

help all earnest students and readers of this book, put before them the

following curious evidence of the influence of the planets on our lives.

This is also demonstrated by the position and shape of the Mounts on the

Hand, and, as far as I know, has never been published in any book dealing

with Palmistry before.

In the accompanying pages it will be noticed that I have for the first

time dealt with these Mounts as Positive and Negative. The following

explanation of my reason for doing this should be of the greatest

assistance to my readers, and will also be useful in showing the close

relationship between the two sciences Astrology and Palmistry.

There are, it is well-known, in the Zodiac which surrounds our earth,

what are called "the twelve Houses" of the seven principal planets of our

Solar System.

The Zodiac itself is described both by Astronomers and Astrologers as a

pathway in the Universe, about sixteen degrees broad, in which the

planets travel. It is divided into twelve Signs or Houses of thirty

degrees each, and our Sun enters a new sign on an average of every thirty

days. At the end of twelve months it has completed the zodiacal circle of

360 degrees, or one Solar year.

The Sun, the creator of life, and itself the greatest mystery of our

Universe, is in bulk 330,000 times larger than our earth. It therefore

follows that in entering a new sign of the Zodiac, it changes the

magnetic vibrations of the effect of each sign towards our earth.

Consequently it is reasonable to presume that a person born, say in

April, and another in May, would have very different characteristics and

naturally a distinct destiny, because character is Fate or Destiny.

My readers will now easily follow me when I state that, especially as

regards health and disease, the following tables concerning the Mounts of

the Hand, taken in conjunction with the date of birth, will enable them,

when reading the hand, to tell many things with an accuracy that will be

most convincing both to themselves and to their hearers.
