The thumb has always been given a very special importance in palmistry because it represents the entire palm, and tip of first section of thumb directly connects with the brain.
That is the reason why thumb is considered as an excellent measure to determine the character or personality of a person and how he or she is making use of one’s inherent talents and abilities.
Thumb is a finger?
In some form of palmistry, palm readers only focus their entire attention towards discerning the fingerprint, shape and size of the thumb which gives abundant information to predict the future of a person.
Indeed, the thumb is known as the king of all the fingers where it is equivalent to four fingers on the hand, and only humans enjoy the luxury of having the thumb on their hands that provides easy grip or hold of the objects.
Technically speaking, thumb is considered as a digit, not a finger. How many fingers do you have on each hand? Four or five ?
From a palmistry standpoint, it really does not matter much as far as personality and other predictions goes.
Phalanges of Thumb
Like all fingers, thumb is also divided into three phalanges.
The first phalange of thumb that comprise a thumbnail represents willpower and determination of a person to move ahead in one’s life.
Second phalange denotes logical and strong reasoning abilities of a person, and the third phalange of thumb is the mount of Venus itself as shown that deals with how he or she express his or her passion, love and sympathy towards others.
If there is a balance between the mentioned sections of thumb and the structure of hand is good, the person is likely to become successful and wealthy in one’s life.
While determining the personality, mount of Venus is often neglected and first two phalanges of the thumb are focused that provides great insights about self-control, and character of an individual.
Let’s see the different personalities emerging from the excess or deficit of these phalanges.
First Phalange=Second Phalange
If first phalanx of thumb is equal to second phalanx of thumb as shown indicates there is a balance of willpower and logic.
The person does not get carried away by emotions, and each and every decisions are well thought, backed with strong reasoning.
Because of such well-planned action, he or she often keeps unwanted emotions aside and gets successful in the love matters or any relationships per se, provided there are other markings on the hand to validate it.
If the first phalanx of thumb is greater than the second phalanx as shown represents willpower is in excess of logical and reasoning skills.
The person tends to act first, and does not care about the consequences if something goes against to what he or she has planned.
In this process, there is a likelihood of making mistakes.
Furthermore, the person often becomes stubborn and obsessive in regards to one’s work which is not necessarily a bad thing, provided the energy is channelized in the right direction.
First Phalange < Second Phalange
If the second phalanx of thumb is greater than the first phalanx as shown denotes strong logical reasoning skills, but lacks adequate will power or courage to achieve the purpose.
It makes the person very careful and analyzes the entire situation before coming to any conclusions.
No wonder, he or she takes a long time than usual, thereby it restricts the ability to put an entire planned activity into existence.
Such person should relax, and try not to think too much in one’s life.
