Hand analysis of Lal Krishna Advani

It is difficult to get hold of the hand prints of famous people but their hands are often widely photographed, particularly at rallies. Although the lines are not visible, the shape of the hand and fingers are, and they can reveal something about the person. Without the lines I cannot say anything even remotely about his future, so this is just about his character traits.

L. K Advani has always been a bit of a mystery to me and that was why I decided to try and decipher his hand. Even now I find it difficult to make up my mind about him.

Here is my reading:

A warm person at heart
Advani's innate nature is warm and sympathetic, which is evident from Mount of Venus. However these qualities are seen more often by the few who are close to him. The placement of his fingers and heart line show that to others he can be hard to approach and even arrogant, and it is likely that this trait
has strengthened over the years due to his powerful position as the leader of the opposition party. He has also become rather manipulative, again a developed trait.

He does not like formality or rules

The shape of the thumb and it's phalanges tell a lot about a person, and so it is with Advani. It shows that he is not a rigid person. Not only is he amenable to reason, he can be flexible in his decision-making and in fact tends to be influenced by others. At times his ability to get influenced can go against his own logic and reasoning, which he has plenty of. He has will power and the ability to command others.

A good politician
Advaniji's fingers and thumb shows something else. That he is secretive and will not let his innermost thoughts be visible to anyone. Often others may not know what he really thinks. These are good traits for a politician, but Advani is also impulsive and that is certainly not a good thing.

The strong Mount of Jupiter and it's finger phalanges make it clear that he is ambitious and religious. His religiosity is high-minded and borders on idealism. He has very strong desire for status and is not afraid of taking risks to achieve his ambition. All these traits have helped him become the leader of the opposition party, a party which has based its ideology on religion.

His Mercury and Saturn fingers, both show good development, and reveal that he is very shrewd, although not always tactful and has a good power of expression. He is a good judge of people.
Overall though he is a great showman, can be very persuasive. He does not harbor grudges, and can get along with different types of people.

Other traits
He had a good headline and it is not surprising that he studied law. He would have made an excellent money-making lawyer if he had taken up the profession as he has the ability to see two sides of the coin, has good analytical ability, good interpersonal skills, a logical thinking ability as well as good speaking and writing skills.
Advani's heart line shows that he has a tendency to be emotional and when he was younger was probably very easily moved. This tendency of his has reduced, but not altogether gone.
His Moon and Venus combined show that he has a good imagination and is fond of music and can perhaps play some instrument. Maybe he did so in the past.

His own nature is a cautious one and I wonder if this is which leads him to be influenced, making him give more importance to another (trusted) person’s views than his own. Actually he should trust his own judgment, as he has a good head on his shoulders and has superior reasoning ability.
He is straightforward, trustworthy and dependable. He is an honest man.
He is well balanced mentally, even in his old age.

His Sun finger tells us that he is a great showman, and can be very persuasive. He does not harbor grudges, and can get along with different types of people.

A little difficult
He is sensitive to his surroundings. At times little things can annoy and hurt him due to this trait.
Even though he seems genial, he often takes a negative approach to things and can be suspicious of people as can be seen from his Saturn finger. This can make him difficult to live with. And then there is his arrogance which makes him difficult to approach, and manipulative and cunning behavior as well.

Lacks the ability to be a true leader
But now to his worst trait, a trait that casts a shadow on his other good points. His slightly high placed thumb and longish hand shows innate selfishness. He will sacrifice the interests of others to achieve his own ambitions. That is the only thing that comes in the way of him becoming a truly great leader. It’s almost as if he is on just one track, and that track is himself.
