Rings on Your Fingers
By observing the fingers on which you choose to place your rings, a Chirologer is able to determine aspects of your personality. Some hand readers see the wearing of rings as rather a negative trait, as mostly we wear our rings without conscious awareness of why it is that we place them upon a chosen digit.
Placement of a ring is an unconscious attempt to literally “add weight” to the area of life that finger represents, and may reveal imbalances in the qualities associated with that digit.
Knowing the significance of where you put your rings may be helpful to you, that you may wear your rings with newfound awareness. Rather than reveal a weak character trait, a ring placed with conscious awareness can enhance and strengthen these areas of your life, the more so if the ring is set with a crystal that resonates with that digit’s element principles.
Chirology ascribes each finger a “rulership” of an element, and an “identity” based upon principles of that element.
“Negative” interpretation applies to unconscious placement.
“Positive” value lies in your being aware of your intention as you place your ring.

RINGS ON ALL YOUR FINGERS:
Indicate that there are negative circumstances in your life. You are probably not feeling a sense of safety or security in your world, but you are hiding behind a display. You may also prefer to avoid dealing with painful issues in your life. Wearing rings on every finger also shows that you are more conventional than you perhaps like to admit.
