What Do the Lines on Your Palm Mean? Part 3

The mounts of the palm are raised fleshy regions. Some are beneath the fingers, some are on the edge of the hand, and one sits right in the center of the palm. Each mount is symbolized by a planet, and lines and features on it tell how the things that the planet represents manifest in your life. Some people say that the mounts of the palm express how the planets influence us and they're called mounts because they rise like mountains. Very well raised mounts indicate that the traits the planet they are named after embodies especially strong in our lives. Flat, or undeveloped mounts and dictate more of an absence with those traits. Read on to learn all about the mounts of the palm and what they mean.



The Mounts of the Palm

What Do the Lines on Your Palm Mean? Part 3

Named after the planets, some of the planets also share the name with gods and goddesses. Some people say that the mount, or region of your palm that is the most raised as your dominant mount whose traits are strongest in you. Some of the mounts are about intellect while others are about how we are attracted to lovers and our emotions. Some mounts are about the amount of energy that we have and others are about our personal willpower.  Read on to learn their meanings, and how you can tell what they're communicating about you.

Mount of Venus

The Mount of Venus is the fleshy region that is between your thumb to your wrist. The planet Venus is connected with the arts, relationships, and the sense of touch. If you have a wide Mount of Venus, you are a considerate, warm hearted, generous individual and it gives you an energetic personality. If your Venus Mount is narrow, it means that you're more careful about making decisions and your zest for life is not especially powerful. If this is the largest and fullest mount that you have, you have a lot of energy and stamina and you relish new experiences that keep you active. If your Venus Mount is especially large, you are especially passionate about partaking in the pleasures of life, and you have to watch for overindulgence. A flat or undeveloped Mount of Venus indicates that you are not especially sentimental, and you relate to people in a more rational than emotional manner. Venus also rules the Zodiac Sign Libra and you can read about them here: Libra Traits and Love Compatibility (spiritualblossom.com)

Mount of the Moon or Mount of Luna

The Mount of the Moon lies on the other side of your wrist, opposite the Mount of Venus. The Moon rules your personal needs, sense of security, and emotional reactions to things. Also known as the Mount of Luna, it is about your imagination, creativity, and intuition. A very well defined Mount of the Moon indicates that you have powerful creative abilities and it also indicates that your psychic gifts are strong.  If it is so large it looks out of proportion but the rest of the hand your imagination gets the better of you and gives you a false sense of reality sometimes. If your Mount of the Moon is flat, you are a homebody but you still have a good imagination. However, you are shy about the creative things that you come up with and you keep them to yourself.  Complete lack of any elevation of your Mount of the Moon indicates that you are not an imaginative individual.

Mount of Pluto

 Some palmists do not include the Mount of Pluto in their chart of palm mounts. However, plenty do and The Mount of Pluto is just above the Mount of the Moon. A planet of transformation, Pluto is about finding your personal power.  Change can be good or it can be disastrous, rendering you powerless,  and the Mount of Pluto talks about how change affects you throughout your life. An especially pronounced Mount of Pluto means that you can be stubborn and inconsiderate, and struggle with self-control. On the other hand, an undeveloped or absent Mount of Pluto means that you can be cranky and struggle with misfortunes. A well-defined Mount of Pluto that is not too large indicates that old age will be a happy time for you, but if there is a cross on your Mount of Pluto, some professional palmists say you may pass on before you reach the age of 45. Pluto is one planet that rules Scorpio and you can read about that here: Scorpio Traits and Love Compatibility (spiritualblossom.com)

The Mount of Saturn is beneath the middle finger. Saturn governs discipline, responsibility, and old age. It indicates how patient you are, how modest you are, and how much solitude you need. If this mount is well developed, it indicates that you are intelligent, good at mathematics, well organized, and have a friendly disposition. If it is flat or undeveloped, it indicates that you can self-isolate and you are prone to feeling sad. However, this also means you keep people’s secrets well, so the people you associate with appreciate you for this. An overly developed, or disproportionately large Mount of Saturn means you are pessimistic and highly sentimental.

Mount of Outer Mars

The Mount of Outer Mars is on the opposite side of the Mount of Inner Mars and is just below the Mount of Mercury. It is all about patience, and self-control. An undeveloped Mount of Outer Mars indicates that you don’t have the desire to endure things that frustrate you and you get upset when challenges arise. An overly developed Mount of Outer Mars means that you can be stubborn and prefer to fight than to work things out with people. If it is well developed but not overly elevated, the Mount of Outer Mars means you are brave, face challenges with a level head, and patiently solve problems. Sometimes, when challenges create tough times, you need advice, and you can read about Tarot Readings during bad times here: Tarot Readings for Bad Times (spiritualblossom.com)

Plain of Mars

The Plain of Mars is in the center of your palm between the Inner and Outer Mounts of Mars and it shows more about your temperament. If there is a dip in this region, it indicates you are patient, and you stay calm. If it is a firm, thicker area, it means you have a powerful lifeforce and you love to socialize. You can also be rebellious, doing things your own way even if it upsets other people. If the Plain of Mars shows little development, and is more of a flat region, it means you might lose your temper sometimes and might resort to tantrums. Passion and aggression are Fire Sign traits and you can read about the Fire Signs of the Zodiac here: What are Fire Signs of the Zodiac? (spiritualblossom.com)

Mount of Neptune

The Mount of Neptune is in the center of the base of the palm. Neptune governs inspiration, mediumship, and all things mysterious. The Mount is about sensitivity to spirituality and the psychic gifts. A square shape in this region means your psychic gifts help you see through lies and a triangle on this mount means that your imagination is so strong, you can allow it to create a false sense of reality for you. If this happens, make sure your worries don’t get the better of you. A star in this region means your instincts make you a great leader who motivates people to make good things happen. If this area is especially pronounced, your psychic gifts and spiritual side are especially powerful.

Mount of Jupiter

The Mount of Jupiter is beneath the index finger. Jupiter rules higher education, reasoning, wisdom, and success. The Mount of Jupiter shows how you accomplish goals, lead, and your willpower to succeed. If the Mount of Jupiter is well developed, you are confident, focused on your goals, and you are friendly. If it is underdeveloped, your lack of self-confidence holds you back, but there is a solution to that. Skills development can help you build self-esteem and this will help you to become more successful. If this area is overdeveloped, and disproportionately large, that means that arrogance overtakes you, and you can be overly aggressive to the point of being bossy instead of being a leader. Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and you can read more about them here: Sagittarius Traits and Love Compatibility (spiritualblossom.com)

Mount of Apollo or Mount of the Sun

Also called the Mount of the Sun, the Mount of Apollo is under your ring finger. The Sun represents confidence, prosperity, and positions of power. This Mount is all about how you stand out from other people in the crowd and your personal accomplishments. A well-developed Mount of Apollo signifies success throughout life. An undeveloped Mount of Apollo means you struggle with success, and a more flat Mount of Apollo means you lead an ordinary life. It also means you are not fond of the arts and do not surround yourself with beautiful things. An overly developed Mount of Apollo means you are short tempered and lose your temper, and should work on that. If you don’t it will cause problems in your relationships. Lines on the Mount indicate that you are extroverted, and good with people.  Leo’s ruling planet is the Sun and you can read more about Leos here: Leo Traits and Love Compatibility (spiritualblossom.com)


What if My Palm Reading is Wrong?

What Do the Lines on Your Palm Mean? Part 3

It isn’t. Maybe your palm reading says there is an aspect of your personality that you don’t agree with, or it gives you some bad news you don’t like, but your palm is telling the truth. It is always better to know the truth from a palm reading than to be unaware of things, even if the truth is unpleasant.  It is possible you misunderstood a line or mistook one line for another one, and that is why your palm reading seems inaccurate. If you think your palm reading told you the wrong thing, check the palm reading guides, and do the reading again.  If you still don’t agree with the reading, get another opinion. Chances are, another set of eyes can spot something you missed! That’s what friends are for.
