Mayawati's hands reveal her personality characteristics

Mayawati CM
Mayawati's* hands show her to be a woman who is street-smart but one who sees things from her own point of view, a person who could find it difficult to see the broad picture. Feelings are important to her, and she would tend to make decisions based on her feelings and would react rather than reason. Often, she could neglect to think things through or take into account the consequences. Diplomacy is not her forte.

She has a long hand, and the Jupiter (index) finger third phalange on her hand is well developed and the tip quite conic. The saturn (middle) finger is long and likely a little bent. The palm is on the narrower side, with developed mounts. The Mercury (little) finger is a little short and the heartline dominates. The thumb, though at good length is rather broad, possibly thick. The Lower Mars mount is developed, and the lifeline is very deeply etched. The first phalanges are a good length. Her lines are darkly etched overall. The Venus mount is not wide but it is high and the lower part of her hand seems quite developed, like Lower Moon and Lower Venus. Mayawati's thumb is long, but not excessively so and she holds her fingers close together.

The hand shows a tendency to react negatively. She could be somewhat of a wet blanket; a person who is quick to see the negative side of everything and that too, intensely. She has an imagination as well, and not always a healthy one. She doubts, and has feelings of jealousy and resentment towards others, readily believing the worst of them.

Mayawati's hand shows that she enjoys power and would likely to be quite direct when she goes about getting it. Subtlety is not what she is good at and in fact, there is a certain coarseness seen on her hand. While she is capable of controlling others, she can be manipulated as there is a certain simplicity in her character. 

She does have some sort of belief system and ideals and scruples as well, but the desire to dominate is very strong. She can become mean when her desires are thwarted as she wants her way. Because of this, there is a tendency to bully, and she can be quite  tactless and boorish. She is not always reasonable either, especially when emotions are aroused.

Leadership qualities are present mainly because she is a dominating person, and quite determined and aggressive. Executive ability is present and she has energy and drive.

Although she is a smart woman and can think, she has a  conservative thought process. She is unlikely to do anything new or pathbreaking, not because she doesn't want to, but because she cannot. It is not that she is selfish, not at all. She has ideals, and wants to do good for her electorate. The problem is that she wants power a lot as well and she is not a risk-taker.

However, she could break the rules when it suits her personally. In personal interactions, she can be informal, and not conservative.

She also has a penchant for extravagance especially when it comes to her own pleasures. It's a basic crudeness perhaps. Status symbols matter a lot to her, to the extent that she can be extravagant. However, money by itself is not what she craves. It's the position and name and fame that she wants. The short-term vision and the difficulty in seeing the broader picture is a drawback for any person, let alone a leader.

  1. She has an unusually long finger of Saturn and her lower phalanges are thick. She has an irregular heart line and fading heart, life and fate lines. The shape of her thumb is like a drum.
    There has an almost perfect curve to her head line. All this, to my mind, shows:
    a. A rather fatalistic outlook (She perhaps thinks that she is the messiah of Indian politcs)
    b. She loves good life with lots of money to spend
    c. She is not so scrupulous about acquiring material benefits
    d. She is adept at the art of politics, and
    e. She is brash.
    Of course I have used my assessment of her character too!!

  2. Sudhir, thank you for your comment. Your observation about the Saturn finger is correct, but it appears long because it is high-set. This ofcourse gives more power to Saturn. Your observation about her thumb is quite correct. This is what gives her the boorishness, which is confirmed by other signs.
    About the lines, I was somehow not sure although it does seem to be true what you said about them. As I was not sure of the lines I did not base my reading on them, but went purely by the shape of her fingers, palm and hand.
