Palmistry and Astrology

Here is a look at Palmistry and Astrology. In palmistry, the planets were used to represent certain parts of the hand: Mercury the little finger; the Sun, the ring finger; Saturn, the middle finger; Jupiter, the index finger; Mars, the centre of the palm; Venus, the root of the thumb; and the Moon, the lower mound of the hand. The elements were utilized in certain systems of hand reading, and some palmistry books refer to the water hand, earth hand, fire hand and air hand. The same astrological principles apply to the type of hand in the user and the water hand would indicate somebody who is highly sensitive, emotional, deep and an air hand would indicate someone who was intellectual or who liked to socialize.
