Luck Series # 5 – Sun Mounts and Markings

Luck Series # 5 – Sun Mounts and Markings

When it comes to signs of luck in our hands, single lines, stars and triangles on the Sun mount rank as being indicators of success and happiness in life. Our shining Sun, sustainer of life, is represented in palmistry by fire (ring) fingers, and in their underlying pads of flesh. Fire fingers, and the mounds at their roots, are named after Apollo, the Sun god.

As capacitors of potential energy, Sun mounts relate to flair, personal style, self-expression and talent, especially in the creative arts. Single vertical lines, triangles and stars on Sun mounts support the likelihood of the owner enjoying the rewards of financial security in old age, along with fulfilled contentment and satisfaction with what they have achieved.

Single, clear-cut, deep and straight vertical lines etched above heart lines on Sun mounts are fire-governed energy channels for creativity. These minor fire, or Sun lines, (“lines of capability” – W. Benham) are auspicious palmar markings for luck. This positive marker suggests super-charged potential for accomplishing great achievement. Owners are likely to have optimistic, outgoing, attractively warm-hearted and generous traits. People with deep and clear sun lines exude warmth and friendliness, resulting their being well-liked. Depending on other palmar features, they are potentially spontaneous, versatile and innovative. Not only will they bring their creativity to life, but they will also achieve recognition, wealth and success. This feature can also strongly indicate the likelihood of inheritance.

Conceivably, stars on Sun mounts will combust in the owner the fiery energies of the mount and of the emerging well-formed finger above. With this sign of creative brilliance in their hands, people with stars under their ring fingers are also believed to be gifted, perhaps destined for visibility, celebrity status and the spotlight. In all likelihood, fortune will smile upon them. A lucky gambler may have Sun mount stars and long fire fingers with whorl finger print glyphs.


Little triangles on Sun mounts suggest constructive, practical creativity. This marking can signal architectural flair. Owners have unique skills and talents and are lovers of art and beauty.


It must be noted that owners of these markings who are publicly visible also have a need for privacy and alone time. Significantly, theirs is a longing for inner stillness and spiritual rest.

Some say more luck, some say less, but 3 vertical lines, or the rarely found ‘trident’, which is a line that forks into 3 under ring fingers, also relate to potential in the luck department. It might be that wealth, recognition and distinction are aspected in the trident, but in the 5 element chirology system, 3 vertical lines on Sun mounts are considered to be dispersive rather than focused, suggesting that owners are inclined to scatter their energies.

It is said that people with no significantly recognised name, fame or amount of money, will not have these signs in their hands. They may have creative talents but they have to work harder at living.

There remains the question “is there such a thing as luck?” Many events that influence our lives are seemingly beyond our control. Things happen by chance, and not as a result of our own efforts. The concept of “luck” is defined as “a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favourably or unfavourably for an individual, group or cause.”

Circumstances seem to operate for or against us, but research proves that believing in luck as being a force that causes things, especially good things, to happen to you, will attract a net gain for fortunes, and vice versa.

Belief in luck is self-reinforcing, while believing in bad luck, and expecting the worst, ensures that “existence will go looking for the match”, and exactly as you have ordered, you will attract bad luck. Consider that belief in bad luck is a self-abandoning positionality, as research shows that “lucky” people are more relaxed and open, while “unlucky” people are generally more tense and anxious.

“Lucky people generate their own good fortune via four basic principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.” Richard Wiseman.

Lastly, to increase your luck, cultivate gratitude. Social scientists who study gratitude have found that gratitude produces a remarkable array of physical, psychological, and social changes.

“Gratitude, in particular, is a currency we can spend freely without fear of bankruptcy.” Robert H Frank.

Please Note: The counselling and coaching system of 5 element chirology is not a predictive hand reading system. Predictions are deemed unethical. Based on these above-mentioned markings in a set of hands, I as reader would encourage the person’s optimism and positivity, but would not predict any definite “lucky” outcome.

Luck Series # 4 – The Peacock’s Eye Glyph

Luck Series # 4 – The Peacock’s Eye Glyph

The Peacock’s Eye – this variation is composed of a whorl pocketed inside a teardrop shaped loop.

The Peacock’s Eye – in this more delicate composition of a peacock’s eye, we find  a loop with ridges that converge to create an embedded core ‘eye’, sans any whorl.


Glyphs are pre-ordained, fixed, unchangeable cosmic imprints, each receiving and exuding in their own unique frequency. They are energy portals, thresholds through which we give and receive. In the same way that tattoos, amulets, talismans and lucky charms influence our energy field, so the glyphs on our fingertips, palms and soles of our feet are inscribed symbols which influence our way of being in the world.

This intriguing dermatoglyphic skin ridge pattern resembles the tail feather of a peacock.  In palmistry, a peacock’s eye on a finger denotes luck and protection for the owner. Peacock’s are ancient eastern symbols of beauty, prosperity, royalty, love, compassion, transmutation, the soul, and peace, thus the association of peacock’s eyes patterns in your hands with good fortune. Bearers of this auspicious marking are believed to be protected in dangerous situations.

In chirology, the air element is ascribed to the vortex-like whorl, or to the little, encapsulated part of the pattern, signifying a person who is analytical, observant, curious, communicative and independent.

The water governed loop part of the pattern shows imagination, flexibility, responsiveness and emotional sensitivity in a loving person who senses others’ emotions. Together, these chirologically associated traits are a positive match to the person’s manifestation of “luck” in their life.

Peacock’s eyes bring extra perspective and insight to any given situation, so owners of this “extra eye” could be a visionary, or have “an eye for the main chance”. They might be gifted with astute intuitive perception and able to see beyond the apparent. As a marker of versatility, owners will have “a discerning eye”, with design flair, and personal style, but with idealistically exacting standards.

Luck, or feeling bewilderingly unlucky, features significantly in some people’s lives. Luck is a way of understanding a personal chance event, but is there such a thing as luck? Do we orchestrate our own good and bad fortune?

As a hand reader, it would be highly unethical if I were to predict a “lucky” or “unlucky” outcome in a client’ life. I wouldn’t be in integrity if I were to foretell to people they are going to win or lose in a situation brought by chance rather than through their own actions.

But because it’s been proven that people who believe they are or will be lucky are more optimistic, more satisfied with their lives, and have better moods, when I see “lucky” signs in palms, I do like to point them out and to encourage the person that believing in luck can produce positive thinking, which changes things for the better. As a self-reinforcing viewpoint, belief in good luck is an adaptive meme.

“There are rules to luck, not everything is chance for the wise; luck can be helped by skill.”    Baltasar Graciá

Luck Series # 3 – The Mark of the Fish

Luck Series # 3 – The Mark of the Fish

“The harder you work, the luckier you are.”  Gary Player – famous South African golfer.

What is luck? Do you believe in luck? Why do some people consider themselves as lucky while others feel unlucky? Some say that luck is a genuine feature of existence. Others say that no-one has luck. One thing is clear – ‘luck’ is about perspective. For example, after an accident, when we “are lucky to be alive”. But some people really do seem to be very lucky, or very unlucky.

Continuing in my questing and questioning as to whether there is such a thing as “luck” in people’s hands, today we’ll look into another marker that in traditional palmistry, is considered to be “lucky” for the bearer.

The symbol in palms that is called “The Mark of the Fish” is said to show the researcher, the person who seeks avenues of furtherance. With its association to ‘seeking furtherance’, the fish is a positive marker for financial success.

Apparently, for the fish to be an auspicious and positive marker for wealth, the mouth should ideally be in an upward direction, pointed to a finger. A large fish on a Jupiter or Apollo mount is perhaps its most potent position.

But a fish symbols on the ulnar (baby finger side) of your hands show that you are have a scholarly and research orientation. The association to ‘seeking furtherance’ suggests that a fish anywhere in your palm is a positive marker for financial and other successes in life.

In this image, we see 2 fish alongside each other, on the Moon mount.

Luck Series #2 – The Great and Little Triangles

Also called the Triangle of Good Fortune, the Great Triangle is considered to be sign of a strong constitution, success and luck. It is an indicator of health, peace, harmony, mental acuity and good fortune.

This marker is formed by the earth (life), air (head) and minor air (health/hepatica) lines. The earth and air lines must be joined at their start. The quality of the lines which form the boundary of the triangles are key to their strength.

The bigger, stronger and clearer the triangle, the more mental vigor, creativity, and in turn, luck, can be expected. In Indian palmistry, when this triangle is formed with strong and unbroken lines, it is a sign of an ability to make, manage and save money.

The Little Triangle is within the Great Triangle.                                                                                                                                           

The Great Triangle – encloses the Plain of Mars (hollow of hand). Formed by the air, earth and minor air (health/hepatica) lines. great-triangle-1

Believed to be a symbol of the holy trinity, bestowing a protective function and psychic ability.




The Little Trianglelittle-triangle-1 Is established by the presence of a clearly defined minor earth (fate) line which bisects the Great Triangle to separate a sub-triangle of approximately half the size. Aspects intellect and learning capacity.

Luck Series # 1 – Do You Have a “Lucky M” in your Hand?

Luck Series # 1 – Do You Have a “Lucky M” in your Hand?

magic-m-outlinedToday’s post is about luck, and the ‘Magic M’. I’ve been researching the concept of “luck” in our hands, and posing the questions: “What is luck?”, “Do you believe in luck?”, and, if you are a reader, “Do you speak to your clients of ‘luck’?

In traditional palmistry, there are markings that relate to luck. The first marker that I’ll talk about today is the so called “Lucky M”, also known as the “Magic M’.

The “M” is formed by the combination of the Life, Fate, Head and Heart lines. Not many of us have a clear “M”, it is relatively uncommon. For an “M” to be well formed in your palms, these criteria must be met.

  1. Your earth (life) and air (head) lines must be joined at their start.
  2. You’d need a clear minor earth (fate line).
  3. The down stroke of the ‘M’ is formed by your water (heart) line.

A ‘Lucky M’, or ‘Magic M’ is believed to be a very positive indicator in a hand. An ‘M’ is associated with very good fortune in life, along with several traits, blessings and gifts, many of which begin with the letter M.

Money. An “M” is well-aspected for wealth and financial success. Prospects for their career is positive.

Motivation. Owners will have a steady supply of self-discipline.

Management. This primarily refers to self-Management, as well as to leadership abilities.

Mastery. The concept is here is self-mastery in this lifetime. Owners of well-formed “M’s” are strong and stable within themselves. Linked here is the likelihood of their having well developed intuition, which reduces room for error in business and relationships.  People with an “M” are supposedly good judges of character, who can sense and hidden agendas in others behaviour.

Marriage. My first teacher, a traditional palmist, taught me that an “M” in a hand increases the likelihood of the owner having a happy marriage.

Mysticism. The “M” also relates to spiritual progression. Owners align with and cultivate their spiritual lives.      Perhaps this is also why the “M” has also been called the “Mark of the Mother Goddess”.

Magic. Another concept strongly associated with this marker. The owner might be a Master of Manifestation. They also are sleuths who like to solve Mysteries.

Why it is that some people consider themselves lucky, while others feel unlucky? Some say that luck is a genuine feature of existence. Others say that no-one has luck. One thing is clear – ‘luck’ is about perspective. For example, after an accident, we “are lucky to be alive”. But some people really do seem to be very lucky, or very unlucky.
