Mount of Venus ---- Built around the base of the thumb, the Mount of Venus has attributes of the planet Venus in astrology -- for example love, beauty, etc. It also represents your physical body and how at home you feel in it. Any peculiar marks or aspects to the Mount of Venus can be read by an expert. For a map showing the location of the Mount of Venus and other mounts, click here.
Mount of Luna ---- Opposite the Mount of Venus at the bottom of the hand, near the wrist. The Mount of Luna symbolises qualities of awareness, perception, imagination, and creativity. A compassionate, caring personality is suggested by a well-developed Mount of Luna. A flat mount, on the other hand, denotes imagination and a sense of empathy.
Mount of Mercury ---- Just as Mercury is the planet of mentality and mentation, the Mount of Mercury (located under the little finger) pertains to the mental aspect of the individual. Spontaneity and communication skills are also indicated. For example, if this mount is well-developed mount it suggests an individual who likes to travel a lot and take risks. If it is overdeveloped, the person is a glib talker and a consummate liar. If it is flat, the person is shy, diffident or just plain dull.
The Mount of Mars ---- There are actually two Mounts of Mars -- the Defensive or Negative Mount above the Mount of Venus near the thumb, and the Aggressive or Positive Mount on the opposite side of the hand. Both symbolise classic Martian qualities of courage, strength, and aggressiveness (or the lack of these qualities.) The Mars Negative Mount, however, also represents energy while the Mars Positive Mount represents mental strength.
The Mount of Saturn ---- represents wisdom and discernment, just like the planet it is named after. A well developed Mount of Saturn means the bearer has a well developed sense of responsibility and is concerned with seeking wisdom. If overdeveloped (especially when combined with long fingers) the bearer could be cold and distant. A flat Mount of Saturn means the bearer is outgoing and optimistic. According to the Mount of Saturn website: "The mount of Saturn is a measure of one's soberness and studiousness. Those with well-developed mounts can be expected to enjoy solitude and possess prudence and patience in their expectations and actions. Where the mount of Venus contributes to one's social virtues, the mount of Saturn is unconcerned with society, and one may expect an asocial nature from one who possesses a very strongly developed mount. Its meaning is greatly intertwined with the line of fate, which is primarily concerned with one's course in life: their career, business, direction, and drive." For more exhaustive information about the meaning of this and other mounts, click the link listed above.
The Mount of Jupiter ---- Located under the index finger, the Mount of Jupiter indicates ambition, confidence, leadership and justice. If this mount is flat, the individual could lack confidence. If the mount is over-developed, the individual could be arrogant. A small line between the Heart and Head lines on this mount indicates acquisition of wealth.
The Mount of Apollo ---- The Mount of Apollo can be found at the base of the ring finger. If the mount is well developed, the person is warm and optimistic, radiating enthusiasm. If it is flat, the person is cold and cynical, lacking appreciation of the finer things in life. If it is overdeveloped, this person is brash, insensitive, and loves to hear the sound of his/her own voice.
Palm Markings ---- The different markings
like a star, a grille, a square, an island etc. at
different locations signify various positive and negative
events in one’s life. For example, a square on the Mount of Saturn will protect its owner from random fatalities that so frequent life. A grille (#) represents "a point at which the energies of the hand dissipate." If grilles enmesh the entirety of the hand, the power of its bearer is constantly drained by vexations and imagined slights. If a grille appears on the mount, it saps or thwarts the qualities of the mount, e.g. such a mar on the Mount of Apollo will forever dash the attainment of any true success in life. Also on the negative tip, crosses denote troubles, disappointment, danger, and when found on lines, the harm to the bearer may be aggravated. Occasionally it can refer to a dramatic change in one's life due to a crisis or hardship. They should always be considered an ill omen save for two cases: when found on the Mount of Jupiter and when located between the head and heart lines, known as the "Croix Mystique". The bearer of such a symbol is purported to possess a greater degree of mysticism, occultism, and superstition. The Island is always a negative sign, save for some systems in determining an individual's fecundity. It is often a sign of some hereditary evil, such as a heart condition or intemperance with spirits, but it may just as easily represent non-congenital emotional stress or a dire pecuniary situation.
