Palmistry or palm reading is the art of reading the person’s future by deciphering the symbols present on their palm.
It was a wide-spread method of foretelling the future since ancient times and it still hasn’t lost its popularity.
Different palmistry schools around the world have differences and similarities.
Palmistry practitioners are known as palm readers, or palmists. Although many people confirm that the art of palmistry is very accurate based on their experience, palmistry is still considered as a pseudoscience. The origins of palmistry date back to ancient India.
From there, palmistry spread all over Eurasia, and it even reached ancient Greece where it was also practiced.
During the dark centuries in the times the middle ages, palmistry was forbidden because it was considered a form of witchcraft and fortunetelling. During the late 19th century, palmistry became popular again.
In those days, the most famous palmist was the Irishman, known as Cheiro.
He was a talented palmist who studied palmistry in India from gurus. His palmistry practice was placed in London where he was visited by many world-famous people of these times, like Thomas Edison or Mark Twain.
Many of them were disbelievers at first and considered palmistry as a form of charlatanism, but after meeting him, they changed their mind and begun appreciating it as very precise and real.
Palmistry evaluates the person’s character and predicts their potential future, by analyzing the features on their palm.
Different palmists pay attention to different details, but in general, they observe the palm skin color, patterns, the shape and length of the hand and fingers, the lines present on the hand, the unusual symbols which sometimes appear, and many other details.
Every palmist develops their own method of palm reading, based on previous experience and the gained knowledge on the subject.
The main information about the person’s character and destiny is gathered from the so-called dominant hand. The dominant hand is considered the hand we use the most.
Dominant hand is usually the one we use for writing. For most people that hand is the right one.
The dominant hand gives around 80% of the information about the person, while the other one gives additional 20% information.
Palmistry can give a lot of insight about the person’s character and their general wellbeing.
It can also give some insight about their future, especially where they are in life in the current moment when the reading is being done.
The mounts of the palm are important for palmistry readings as well. They are all related to some areas of our lives. They need to be well-placed to ensure their benefits to the person.
The best mounts should also have some fortunate symbols present on them and lack unfortunate signs.
Mount of Saturn – Reading and Meaning
The mount of Saturn is placed under the middle finger, which is also called the Saturn finger.
That area is related with responsibility, introspection, self-preservation, study, and search for the inner truth.
The mount should not be overly bulky or exposed, nor should it be flat. It is better that the mount is missing, than to be overly developed or under-developed.
If a person has a normally developed mount of Saturn (medium-sized), they possibly love to take time away from everyone and isolate themselves. They are usually very independent.
They love to be around people, but they also need their time alone to charge their batteries and rest from the crowds.
These people are self-aware, but not self-absorbed. They are usually faithful and emotionally balanced. They are normal in every sense of the word.
They are logical, responsible, and control their emotional reactions very well. They never allow themselves to overreact in situations where things don’t go as planned.
When the mount of Saturn is well-developed, the person has great endurance, is wise, and has keen judgment.
These people are in a quest to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of things.
These people are often very religious and can be good at resolving problems between people. These people are often fighters for human rights and they oppose all kinds of injustice.
In many cases, these people are humanitarians engaged in doing things for the benefit of other people.
If the mount of Saturn is overly developed, the person can have a rigid and defensive nature. These people are under a great influence of Saturn, and often have it prominatelly placed in their natal charts as well.
They are often very distrustful, conservative, and reluctant to accept changes or other people opinions.
They are also very defensive and always ready to attack others. They also don’t accept commands from anyone.
These people are also wise and often loner types. They are introverted and introspective. They are very thoughtful and always think well before taking some actions.
