What Does The Thumb Mean In Palmistry?
After reading this post, you will be giving it a “Thumbs Up”! The thumb is the seat of the will. Centuries ago, your enemies would cut off your thumb (your will) if they thought you were too powerful. The upper part of the thumb is determination and the lower part is consistency.
Types of Thumbs in Palmistry
There is a strong thumb and a flexible thumb.
Meaning Of A Flexible Thumb In Palmistry
A flexible thumb has a lot of bend to it. If it’s flexible you are influenced easier. People with flexible thumbs are usually more easygoing and can go with the flow. Sometimes too easygoing. Try it out for yourself and see. The flexible thumb is sometimes called “The Hitchikers Thumb”.
Symbolism Of A Strong Thumb In Palmistry
A strong thumb will have little or no bend in it. These people are determined and strong-willed. Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican our President has a strong thumb. This is not an endorsement of his political views, just look at his thumb and you will see that he has a strong thumb which indicates he is determined and constant. Which is a good thing.
Significance Of The Clubbed Thumb
There is one more thumb shape – “The Clubbed Thumb” or the Murder’s Thumb. The top phalange of the thumb is bulbous. People with this thumb shape are known to have a violent temper. But remember you can never judge a person by just one part of their hand.
Left Thumb And Right Thumb Palmistry
What about the left and right thumbs on hands? This gets interesting. The more flexible the thumb on the left hand, the more emotionally flexible the person. They act on their emotions more easily. The strong right thumb indicates the person is more cautious. They think before they act. They don’t talk about their emotions as easily as well.
But when the moon comes up the thumb on the left hand has the last word. Whether it be flexible or strong. Do we reverse this for left-handed people? We usually do.
Why do we need to know this? You can tell a lot about a person just by looking at their thumbs. A potential girlfriend or boyfriend, your boss, a new friend, or a co-worker. What are you up against in an argument? Have some fun with it.
