~ The Mounts ~

The Mounts are raised areas within your palm which, like astrology, are linked with the qualities associated with the planets.
The brain transmits messages through the nervous system, which are picked up by the millions of nerve endings within the palms.
Extra blood is required to feed the nerve cells which are most frequently receiving signals from the brain. The sensitive nerve endings and the extra blood supply to these nerve cells require extra protection. The body responds by forming raised pads of skin over the top of the sensitive areas. These raised pads of skin are called the Mounts.


Imagine your palm as a living landscape, with a valley in the centre surrounded on all sides by hills. The Hills (mounts) are rich in
nutrients from the plentiful supply of rain. Now imagine rivers, (lines) originating from the hills, making their way down into the valley bringing with them nourishment from the fertile soil in the hills.

This living landscape is your palm. The mounts in your palm are the hills, rich in nutrients caused by the brain messages reaching the delicate nerve endings and the extra blood supply that is produced as a result. The lines in your palm are the rivers, rich in the nutrients from the mounts, etching their way down from the mounts, carrying the qualities of each mount into different areas of the palm.


If you cup your hand slightly and look down through your wrist into your palm, you will be able to see the mounts as slightly raised areas, looking very like hills rising up around your palm. Sometimes mounts are flat. receiving few signals from the brain. These mounts do not require extra oxygen from the blood and the mounts do not need this extra padding . In some hands there is normal development, the mount being neither flat nor overdeveloped. This reveals that the qualities of the mount are being displayed by the person at a normal level. When the mount is very raised it reveals that a large amount of energy is being sent via the brain to that particular area and as a result, the body has had to form a vast amount of padding for extra protection. This overdeveloped mount may be coloured quite red because of the extra blood supply.

Saturn -

Saturn is associated with the skin, teeth, bones, gall bladder, spleen, crystallisation and acid formation in the joints, old age, perseverance, restriction, intolerance, tenacity, resolution, matter, darkness, discipline, wisdom, responsibility, method, conditioning, repression, law, logic, institution, solitude, severity, fear, caution, hesitation, selfishness, building, structure, prison, pessimism, depression, and sorrow.  Positively expressed Saturn can be prudent, responsible, cautious, serious, practical, solid, constructive, patient, thrifty, reliable, trustworthy, with good endurance and self discipline.  Negatively expressed Saturn can be fearful, cranky, irritable, mean, limited, uninspired, dull,  selfish, despondent, narrow minded, severe, aloof, acquisitive, materialistic,  dogmatic, heartless, cruel, and depressive.

It is preferable to see no development of the actual Saturn mount, but with perhaps the two mounts on either side slightly displaced towards Saturn. This ensures that caution and responsibility are exercised in conjunction with the qualities of the mounts on either side. Occasionally you may find a central Saturn mount which is rather raised. This implies that caution is being taken to excess, creating a perhaps gloomy, pessimistic and despondent nature. An easy way of determining Saturn is to look at the middle finger itself. If it stands only a nail above the index and ring fingers, it is of average height, revealing a good sense of responsibility. If however, the finger is over long, towering well above the two adjacent fingers it reveals a particularly over cautious, sombre personality. If it is so short that the two adjacent fingers challenge its length, then you will know that a sense of responsibility is lacking, making the person frivolous and uncaring of how actions today may affect the security of tomorrow. This will be further confirmed by the complete absence of a fate line.
