NBCU 4.8.15Chirologist, writer, intuitive counsellor, hand reading teacher and mosaic artist Jennifer Hirsch has pioneered chirology in South Africa since 1991. She lives in Johannesburg where she reads people’s hands and teaches chirology.

“My work has always been about counselling and healing. I began working as massage therapist in 1979 and began incorporating hand reading into my therapy practice in 1991.

Soon I was a teacher of hand reading and a writer, as well as being passionate about doing mosaic art. I’m blessed too with 3 beloved grown-up children – Adam, Nandita and Kelly.

My early hand reading teachers and mentors were the late Brian Friend, who taught me palmistry, and Christopher Jones from the ex British Cheirological Society, who wrote and administered the home study training course that gave me a very good grounding in the principles of 5 element chirology.

I founded the Chirology Centre of South Africa when I began studying hands in January 1991. The ebooks ‘Craft of Hand Reading’ and ‘Traits of Being’ evolved out of the training manuals I compiled over years of teaching people how to read hands.

The idea for my book ‘God Given Glyphs’ first came to me in 2004. It took me more than 5 years to write and compile. Much of it is channelled. It is a very deep, authentic sharing of a hand reading career that has been and is my destiny. Hands and healing are a calling heard deep within my soul.”

Earthy Venus mounts relate to sexuality, sensuality, pleasure and passion, while watery double loops symbolize emotional sensitivity, imagination and duality.
The feelings and actions of the owner of a double loop on a Venus mount would surely be influenced by the swampy and destabilizing combination of the elements earth and water.
In chirology’s language of the elements, this imprint evidences suffering. The bearer experiences unmanageably turbulent emotional and sexual undercurrents. Thankfully, this glyph pattern is very rare.

Thoughts on bulging lower Mars Mounts.....The red planet Mars was named after the Roman god of war. His fire governed principles and qualities of action, energy and courage are ascribed to three different areas of our palms. The hands of the late South African cricketer Hansie Cronje reveal a bulging and protruding lower Mars mount in the area just above where the thumb protrudes from his powerful hand. This competitive man was involved in a match-fixing scandal and was banned from professional cricket for life. He had noticeably large Mars mounts. His courage was driven to a fault. ...
