FIRST LESSON - The Mounts of the Hand
This hand is to explain the mounts, and each lesson must be referred to this hand until you get in your mind the map of the hand and its lines, to know the position they occupy.
Will, reason and logic are found in the thumb, the more one can bend the thumb back, the more will power they have.
Venus is below the thumb; the higher this mount, the more passionate one is. Jupiter is next; the higher this mount the more one will stand up for his rights. Saturn is next, and the higher this mount, means the person is scientific and will be happy; if many lines cross together it means misfortune.
Apollo or the Sun, next, means talent and glory; if crossed by lines, failures. Mercury, next; if this mount be high means a change of fortune.
Mars, next, on the percussion, means self-controlled temper. Moon, next, this mount means presentiments and mental trouble; there is found the suicide mark.
When the mounts lean toward one another the qualities of each are blended and developed in unison.
