Another Resource For Hands :

Shapes of hands and character, or you can say the basic traits of a person can be determined by just looking at his or her hand shape, color, texture, skin quality, palm color, palm skin quality, nail type, nail color, signs on the nails.

One very important point to remember is that it is not possible to put your hand on certain Hand type and say OK, your hand is square type, No.
Every human is unique in his or her own way, so forming groups is a total waste, but still an experienced observer can make out the very basic Hand type after a very careful observation, but here the hand is again divided in to two halves, the top part consist of the five fingers and the bottom part the palm base.
So based on the two parts of the hand, three combination are possible, as shown in the FigP9-a, FigP9-b and FigP9-c.
1)Small Fingers and Large Palm Base, Fig P9-a. also called as Fire hand if the palm is round and it belongs to extroverts and if the palm is square it is earth hand, these people do not like change.

2)Large Fingers and Smaller Palm base, FigP9-b, and if the palm is square such hands are also called as Air hands and these people are good writers and speakers, where as if the palm is rectangular, these hands are called water hands, and these people could be good musicians. 3) Equal Fingers and Palm base, FigP9-c The balanced hand, good at everything.Fingers are the channels through which all the required energy is pulled by the Mind and body, and the thoughts which rule the mind, that kind of energy is pulled maximum and the line related to that kind of energy develops better then other lines on the palm and as each finger has a planetary lordship, that planet if beneficial will give good results and if that planet is malefic, will give negative or bad results, so to improve or reduce the power of certain planet, use the related gemstone on that finger and to improve put on right hand and to reduce put on left hand, same for both females and males.

Fingers and Planetary Lordships
Index Finger – Jupiter

Middle Finger- Saturn

Ring Finger – Sun

Little Finger – Mercury

Thumb – Venus ( Actually it is the base of the thumb)

Base of the palm left side – Moon

Area between the thumb and the Index Finger – Mars
Area between the Moon mount and the Mercury mount- Mars

Let us deal with the Fingers first.

a) Length of the fingers : Generally speaking long and slender fingers in women and long and muscular fingers in men look good, so length of the fingers like the snouts of the animals, bigger the snout better is the smelling power, so longer the fingers better energy they can pull and short fingers well less energy, and long fingers belong to advanced humans and short to the primitive, please note a very dark man can be very advanced and a very pale person can be very primitive in thinking, so color of the skin has nothing to do with being advanced or primitive.

b) Thickness of the fingers: Thickness comes by virtue of their vocation or vocation of their forefathers, just by looking at a persons fingers one can judge what kind of fore fathers the person had, primitive working class or advanced thinking class, hard working laborers will always have thick and hard stub like fingers, if the vocation remains the same for few generations, the genetics change hence the physical looks.
c) Type of the fingers, FigP10, the following figure shows various types of nail tips or finger tips, basically it is the nails which give shape to the finger tips, I have listed five basic types, there are many more but are not very clear to distinguish.
Spatula and Square are not refined and sensitive, where as the pointed, conic and round are refined and belong to sensitive individuals, women generally have conic or pointed, but few can be always square and even spatula type, and men from lower class will generally have square or spatula type and men from higher class will have refined ones, artistic individual have pointed fingers and the best individuals have round tips.
The finger type can be smooth like most women have, smooth and knotted and knotted like in most men, knotted will have abundance of energy reserves and smooth will lack it, but the flow of energy in smooth will be smooth and in case of it would be like sudden jerks.

d) shape of the fingers: As described above, many people now a days have mixed shapes of finger sin one hand, as every individual have various desires, hence various types of fingers, everyone wants to be great, rich, educated and learned, good relations, determined to reach the top, so all these energies when pulled by the mind, the physical form follows the thoughts.

e) Orientation of the fingers: If one observes the four main fingers and the thumb carefully, one or two fingers are straight like a scale and rest are oriented towards other fingers, as in this modern days, everyone strives hard to accumulate material and money and it is the middle finger which is responsible for all this, and Saturn is the giver, so in most hands the middle finger would be straight and longer then all others, since money is the basic necessity, then the Index finger is supposed to be longer and the orientation of middle finger is supposed to be towards the Index finger, because education is important and once attained it needs to be shared, but in reality what is happening is people get educated to earn money, so the Index finger would be oriented towards the middle finger, then the Ring finger, which is ruled by Sun and Sun is the planet which gives power, authority, position in public etc. and once a educated man earns enough money the next goal is always to earn a public position for name and fame to earn more money, hence the Ring finger will also orient itself towards the middle finger, but if native desire is to reach the name and fame area without earning money or what ever he or she has earned will also be used to attain a public image then the middle finger will orient towards the Ring finger, and the little finger is basic requirement for all of the above, Mercury rules communication, intelligence, relations, business acumen etc. so if this finger suffers all areas suffer, and this finger will have to orient towards other fingers. If little finger stands out from the palm, that native is living an unattached life.

f) Setting of each finger and all fingers as a team. The way each finger connects to the palm is very important, because the mount of that finger or planet will form based on the connection, all fingers set like soldiers in a line is desirable but very rare, the best and normal is arch type connectivity which also moves towards materialistic goals, the little finger generally is set lower then all other fingers, reason, almost every child goes through tense moments in their lives and the people who give them this unnecessary tensions are, parents, teachers, friends, teammates, and it is never the enemies, enemies always make children stronger and independent, it is the close circuit which short circuits the mind of a child and due to this tension the normal growth of the child takes a dip, this can be seen very clearly with the settings of little finger, another dimension, abuse, if a native was abused when he or she was a child, is clearly evident with the settings of the little finger and also the length of the little finger would suffer in such cases.
Another dimension to already problematic area, if the family lineage has been under severe tensions and pressures due to economic and social conditions, such individuals would have genetically have low set little finger.
Now look at the Palm base, after the length, look at the width, thickness of the palm and also the thickness of the skin of the palm and back of the palm.

The palm is like the storage area, all the four fingers and the thumb connect here and the major and minor lines run in this palm to further facilitate the energy for better results and in the Palm we have Mars, Moon and Venus, Energy, action, Mind, and Love or relationships, and whatever anyone earns or lives for, ultimately strives for the above three things.

Moon mount on the left side of the palm is for mind development and if set towards the wrist adds intuitive properties to the mind, and from this area starts the non familial relation lines and these cris cross the other major lines, mostly the line of fate.
Venus mount is set on the right side of the palm close to the Thumb, all the familial relational lines begin here and Cris cross the other major and minor lines.
Now putting these set of information together, one can determine the basic Hand type.

Following are the main types of Hands.
a) Pointed type:

b) Conic type

c) Psychic type

d) Spade or Spatula type

d) Square type

e) Mixed type, this one is tricky, it can be of many combinations and is most common.
Thumb and the rest of the palm:Thumb is treated equal to the rest of the palm, that means Thumb carries equal importance like the rest of the palm, there can be four types of Thumbs based on their settings.

a) High set and primitive thumb, this thumb belongs to very primitive type of people, who lack flexibility, thinking power, will power, mind control, emotions etc it looks more or less like a birds appendages fixed and crude.

b) Low set and primitive thumb, this thumb belongs to primitive type of people, who lack individuality, independent thinking power, determination, they have little better faculties then the High set but they are rudimentary.

c) High Set but advanced thumb, this kind of thumb can be seen as a separate part of the entire palm and it is free with movement and flexibility, but as it is set high, it rests with the remaining palm and lacks independence and individuality as a thinker and as a doer, but it does have some flexibility.

d) Low set but advanced thumb, this kind of thumb is an asset to the entire hand, it is like a well developed hand, separate, flexible, independent, with excellent individuality and thinking power, will power and determination, Emotional, and excellent mind control, negative too independent and could work against the native in situations where every other member is a average primitive type, and in case the whole group is advanced independent type, this native can do wonders.

See the following figure, which demarcates the three dimensions of inner psyche, Emotion, Mind and will, if you find fine vertical lines on the first phalanges of your fingers, that is on the base of the fingers, it would mean that the current level of stress is effecting your will and body, if it reaches the second phalanges, it would mean the stress is effecting your mind, and it also suggests that you need a vacation, and the third one which is very rare only in people who are hanging on with fine threads of hope, the fine lines on third phalanges would mean the stress in your life is effecting your soul and your emotions would go upside down, and in such a situation a person is not in a position to take a decision.

And very important thing is when you take a look at your palm for length and width, better look at it on the back side of your palm, the types of hands are also called as fire, earth, water, air and ether hand etc. I will take up each type in detail in my future posts.

So the bottom line is when you give a handshake, in those few seconds one can get lot of information about the person you are meeting with, the nature of the person, the character of the person, and do not take this as an exercise, because in an exercise people will always manipulate their basic tendencies.

Simple example, Some time back in one of the Human resource classes way back in 1997 or 1998, certain exercise was given to four or five groups of people, each group contained four or five employees and everyone knew each other very well, they had to construct individual puzzles, so this guy, he is one of my favorites, and he happened to be my boss for a short period, he finished his part and then kept few pieces of the puzzle belonging to one of the member of the group under his elbow with a smile on his face.

The guide gave a call to stop the game and then went looking at all the tables, when he reached this table where my friend was sitting, he found that two members could not finish the task because few pieces were missing, he was sure that the organiser had supplied all the material after proper counting and checking, so he started searching people, and when he lifted this man’s hand, pop came out the missing pieces, this man was so stupid that he tried to tell that he was not aware that those pieces were lying under his elbow, well he was caught red handed, but being adults no one said a thing, he kept convincing everyone that it was a mistake, but this is not important, the group lost the game because everyone in the group could not finish the task, I always tried to take handshake from this guy but he would never ever give his whole hand into your palm, even before you close your palm, his hand would slip out of it. :-))) and whatever he did in his home, office, outside, this was his basic behavior, I dropped him as a boss even before he could do damage to my reputation, and it was backed by the management appropriately.:-)) but only for a short while, then his antics caught up with me and our entire team of employees.

This was just an example, and there will be people who would like to squeeze your hand till you start crying, my father belonged to this category, he enjoyed it, in his huge hand every other hand would appear like a small tomato and he would go squeeze with a huge grin and later few suggestions to maintain your body and health. :-)))

Every time he would see a friend or anyone only men, his hand would project at him like a whale opening his mouth to swallow a small fish. :-))) and many people would fall pray to him but few would always escape unhurt, who knew him well.:-)) Large hands denote many capabilities and a small hands the desire to achieve, soft hands refined and diplomatic, hard and rough hands, blunt ways to handle public issues, fine texture also denotes refinement and hair well I am not sure about it, more male hormone more hair on the body, even this is not very convincing, hair has to do with primitive nature, more hair on the body more primitive mentality and less hair for both men and women would mean refinement in genetics.
