Nirmala Devi's hand reading

The hands of Nirmala Devi, popularly known as Mataji (1923 –2011) show intelligence, pragmatism, aggression and boldness, and these qualities are developed to a high degree. Generally speaking, people with this combination are successful in life. However, if I had not known that these were Mataji’s hands I would not have been able to pinpoint the field in which her success lay. Her hands do not show any great talent in

Varun Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi - a comparison

As far as the hands go, neither Varun Gandhi nor Rahul Gandhi's hands show the kind of leadership ability that the Gandhi family is famous for. However, Varun has some qualities that could make him a better politician than his cousin Rahul. Not many details can be seen from web photos but one can get a sense of what Varun is like.
The major features of Varun’s hands are

Richard Stallman's psychological make-up

People hold extreme views for a variety of reasons and their hands can reveal why they think that way. People are often suspicious of radicals, especially of their motives. Are these people genuine or simply trying to attract attention? Are they kooks of some kind? The hand can unmask a person's character to some extent.

The dominant aspects of Richard Stallman's hands are the well-developed Mounts of Moon and Venus, although Moon appears to be stronger. These developed mounts overshadow other mounts, and this can create a lack of

Pratibha Patil's hand reading

One wonders whether the public's disappointment with Pratibha Patil is more because she succeeds the eminent scientist Abdul J Kalam, or whether the Indian public is right in thinking her wanting? What do Patil's hands reveal about her real self?

Patil's hands show some good personality traits. Her hand reveals analytical ability which will enable her to perform the tasks she undertakes quite well. Small things will not escape her notice. This type of ability is useful for academic work. However, at the same time, it must be mentioned that her hand shows

Rihanna's hand reading

The main features of Rihanna’s hand are her long head and heart lines, longish hand and tapering fingers. Her hands have a multitude of minor lines like the Mercury line, several Fate lines and also the Girdle of Venus. In addition, there is a wide gap between her Head and Heart lines, and there is the well developed Mount of Venus.

These signs reveal that Rihanna is an intelligent woman, driven strongly by materialistic ambitions. There is

Jennifer Hudson's hand reading

Jennifer Hudson’s broken headline has been interpreted as being caused due to the shock of a personal tragedy (the murders of her mother, brother and nephew) and perhaps it is so. However, as her Headline does not break at the precise time when the tragedy took place (age 27), the answer is a bit more complicated than that.

Jennifer’s first Headline (or part Headline) shows an ambitious, strongly focused and materialistic person. This type of Headline, although good for success, shows a narrow and selfish approach. This Headline continues for

Akshay Kumar's hand reading

At times there is nothing spectacular shown on the hand but the hand does show a balanced, sensible person with plenty of energy and a reasonable amount of talent. This is so in Akshay Kumar’s case. His hand may not show an extraordinary intellect or remarkable talent but his broad and wide palm, well-shaped fingers and slightly large hand shows his

About Cheiro's hand

William John Warner, known as Cheiro, made palmistry well known but there are those who feel that his books do not explain exactly how he arrived at conclusions and made such accurate predictions. I tend to agree with this and believe that it is unlikely that Cheiro himself knew how he did it. His extraordinary ability probably came from strong intuition, bordering on sixth sense.

His hand corroborates this. It shows

Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan's hand reading

Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan* was a towering personality and this is all too evident from his hand, which is in fact, awe-inspiring. The long Headline plunging into the Moon Mount is often found on the hands of intellectuals and well-known authors and poets. A Headline like that can show a high level of intelligence, imagination and brilliance in the character (as in the case of Dr Radhakrishnan) but one has to read this sign with caution. The quality and strength of the headline as well as its overall balance

Sarah Palin's hand reading

Sarah Palin's hands show her to possess useful politician qualities, although nothing spectacular.

The main features of her hand are her slightly short fingers with a low-set mercury finger, supple and waisted thumb, strong Heartline, average Venus, and broad pink palm. This tells us that she is an active, energetic person, fully engaged in life. Someone who has organizational ability, is action-oriented, efficient, quick, and concerned with getting jobs done. Palin may not be

Rani Mukerji's hand reading

Rani Mukerjee’s hands are not like the hands of a typical hand of a film star. Her hands show a personality with a love of order, punctuality, security, and also a sensible and practical attitude in most things. It is because of this down-to-earth attitude that she is able to keep her ego in the backseat. It's not as if she doesn’t have an ego, because she does. It's just that she is too practical to let it interfere with her work.

The main features of her hand are her broad, large palm, short fingers with knots and squarish tips, developed mounts, particularly Jupiter. What makes these features significant is that these signs are fairly pronounced. Her lines are visible only faintly (from the photos) but a long stable headline can be seen. The headline and strong thumb combined add to her qualities of common sense and reveal her intelligence, capability and organizational abilities.

Temper and aggression (Mars) are

Salva Kiir Mayardit's hand reading

A good statesman needs to have the qualities of compassion, a strong sense of justice, leadership abilities, and integrity, and of course good administrative ability and vision. Do Salva Kiir Mayardit's (President of South Sudan) hands show these qualities?

The significant features of Kiir's hands are the longish shape of the hand, deeply etched lines, a few conic fingers or normal length, a very wide mount of Venus, a high-set and sloping Headline, large supple thumb and a comparatively clean hand, with not too many lines crisscrossing each other. Either that or the finer lines are not visible on the hand.

No doubt that Salva Kiir’s hand is that of

Nelson Mandela's hand reading

When one sees the hand of a legendary figure like Nelson Mandela, one expects his hand to be a certain way. Knowing him to be a humanitarian, a great leader, and someone who stood steadfast during his years of incarceration by the apartheid government of South Africa, I was sure I would find a large thumb, broad hand, deep lines and a developed Upper Mars. I did find these signs, but I found more, some of which was a little surprising.

The Headline on his right active hand is weaker than on

Bipasha Basu's hand reading

Bipasha Basu* is known for her strong personality, but is she a diva? Strength of personality is a composite of different personality traits, and at times not everything about a strong person is considered pleasant. Let us see what Bipasha's hands tell us when we delve a little deep.

Her finger of Saturn, it’s length, and the relative length of the phalanges shows her intensity and passion, and her Headline, Fateline and thumb reveal her focus and willpower. She also has a developed Upper Mars and this indicates mental strength, and tells us of a person who is stoic, brave, and a fighter. Such people do not have mental collapses even in the worst of circumstances, if the headline is good and hers is. However, a strong Upper Mars needs to be softened by other signs otherwise it can imply implacability or even disagreeableness. Bipasha's hand

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley

Lisa Marie Presley talked about why she and Michael Jackson split on the Oprah Winfrey show (originally aired in October 2010). Lisa claimed that Michael pushed her away, built a wall of sycophants around himself and she had no place in his life. She also that he was a very manipulative person. This is true. It can be seen on his hands. But at the same time, he is likely to have been very

The secret of Oprah's success as shown by her hands

The striking aspect of Oprah Winfrey's hand are her deeply etched and clear lines which are in balance with the shape and texture of her hand. This balance is critical when it comes to overall personality balance. The major features of her hand (which can reveal Oprah's personality characteristics) besides her strong lines are her evenly set fingers of normal length (relative to each other) except for her Mercury finger and thumb, both of which are longer than normal. The Mercury or little finger and the thumb factor greatly in any individual's eventual success.

Oprah's palm lines tell us of an extraordinarily

Yousaf Raza Gillani hand reading

I had assumed Yousaf Raza Gillani was a weak Prime Minister (of Pakistan) but his hands do not show a weak personality. The broad shape of his palm, slim fingers, the longish thumb with balanced phalanges, and the good headline show the ability to reason and good judgment. What can also be seen from his hand is a strong determination, the ability to see issues from different perspectives, broad thinking, organisational capability and importantly, a desire to help his people and to put them before himself - all this is shown on his hand.

In addition, the position of his fingers and their shape shows him to be

Why Arnold Schwarzenegger is unfaithful

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tiger Woods are both very successful (married) men who betrayed their wives not just for one woman but for a string of them. Oddly enough, they couldn’t be more different. The only thing they share is a high sex drive.

Tiger Woods hands show him to be a better specimen of humanity as his hands show more refinement, more heart, more balance of personality, and more control. However, Woods' hands also show a naturally deceptive nature and also a high level of impressionability. When these traits are combined with a high sex drive it often results in an inability to stick to one partner although Woods is likely to repent and repent sincerely.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hands show him to be very different. The excessively

What Anil Ambani's hands tell us

Anil Ambani is one of the most well-known and successful businessmen in India, widely believed to be a cunning one. Almost every major sign on his confirms this aspect of his personality. The developed Mercury and Jupiter mounts, long Mercury finger, lifeline starting from near the mount of Jupiter, a narrow Venus mount (first half), the long first and second finger phalanges, the slightly waisted thumb, developed first and second knots.

Each of these signs shows a different aspect of his nature, and in combination, it shows Ambani to be a

Prince William is not like his father Prince Charles

A cursory glance at Prince William’s hand tells us that his hand resembles his father’s hand rather than his mother’s. The major features of William’s hand (which he shares with Prince Charles) are the large, broad palm with the developed mounts of Moon and Jupiter and to some extent, Mercury and Lower Mars. This means that like his father, Prince William is a good human being, fairly unselfish and broadminded, and also healthy, active and aggressive. The Mount of Moon gives them both a restlessness, and the penchant for travel.

However, Prince William’s hand is only superficially like his father’s. Prince Charles’ hands show that he goes to an extreme

The difference between Anna Hazare and Mahatma Gandhi

Anna Hazare, the social activist who has been in the news lately because of the Lokpal Bill, has been compared to Mahatma Gandhi. This post explains the similarities and the differences between the two men by comparing their hands.

The major characteristics of Hazare’s hand are his strong Mount of Moon, the deep and dark lines on his rather rectangular palm, development of the middle part of the hand, slightly short conic fingers accompanied by a long thumb. Mahatma Gandhi, on the other hand, has a squarer palm with a better balance of the Mounts, a larger hand and longer fingers, telling us that he is very different from Anna Hazare, although they share

Hugh Jackman's hand reading

The sheer physicality of Hugh Jackman’s hand leaps out at you when you first see it. The large, slightly hard looking hand, the squareness of it, the large broad fleshy palm, the deep lines, the wide and high Venus, the pink colour and balanced finger phalanges. These signs are a strong indication of an active, healthy, and energetic individual.
Jackman may not be an intellectual, but he has the power of

Kareena, Katrina, Priyanka or Aishwarya?

Who is better? Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? They are the top actresses in the Hindi film industry (Bollywood) today. Based on their hand, they have been marked out of ten on Talent, Sex Appeal and Manipulativeness. A rating of 8 or 9 simply means that the actor is near the top amongst the four only.

TALENT (signs taken into consideration are the shape of the hand overall, the developed mounts and fingers, particularly Mercury (little finger) and Apollo (ring finger), the shape of the Headline and the length of the phalanges). However, it is not pure acting talent that I have counted as this is not the only ability that makes an actor successful. I have taken into account the qualities of screen presence and charisma which often makes up

Warren Buffet's hand reading

Everyone knows that Warren is the smartest investor out there, and that he is also a philanthropist. His money-making talent is glaringly obvious in his personality as revealed by his hand, but his philanthropy is not, unlike on the hand of Bill Gates.

Buffet’s hand is fleshy, the mounts well developed, and he has strong, long lines deeply etched on his broad palm. His fingers are on the shorter side, his thumb a little low-set and large, and the Apollo (ring) and Mercury (little) fingers are longer than normal, particularly the Apollo finger. These signs give us a clue as to how and why

Hand Reading of Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor is one of those lucky women born into a famous family, but that is not the only reason why she has been so successful. Her hand shows that she made the most of the opportunities presented to her. As her best qualities have developed to a fine degree, she must have grown up in a caring environment. But behind that facade, what is Kareena really like?

The major characteristics of her hand are her long hand with a broad and large palm, a fine stable Headline, a long thumb with

Kim Jong-il's hand reading

It is widely believed that North Korea’s leader is eccentric to the point of being unstable. Well, his hand shows a coarse nature. The short hand with short, thick and slightly bent fingers, developed third phalanges, heavy mounts particularly those of Venus and Moon and Mars, the stiffness of the hand, the dark pink palmar colouring and the thick thumb all tell a story. A story of a person governed by brute force, a person who could hold

Mahendra Singh Dhoni 's hand reading

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for being a cool and cunning customer and a strategist. How many of these personality traits are corroborated by his hand? What is Dhoni really like? Well, his hand does not show him to be a master strategist, but more of a person with strong instincts and a feel for the game.

And is Dhoni really as calm as he looks? What does his hand say?

Muammar Gaddafi Hand Reading

The character of an unfortunate street urchin

The little boy in the sketch is not famous and never will be. He is a contrast to those who have found a place on this blog because he has little chance of becoming famous. Born without inherited wealth, with no access to education, without the caring environment of a family to nurture his hidden talents and help him control his weaknesses, he is probably doomed from the start.

I saw him on the streets begging. Either his parents have pushed him into it or he is an orphan. He is just one boy amongst thousands of street children and by reading his hand I am no way implying that the others on the street are like him. 

This boy has one of the saddest hands I've seen. His right hand tells us what his character is likely to be when he becomes an adult, based on his status and circumstances today. Sure, he could change, although

Beyoncé Knowles - hand reading

Beyonce’s hand looks beautiful from the aesthetic point of view. However a beautiful hand does not necessarily translate into a great personality. The positive aspects of Beyonce’s hand are that she has fine lines, a good palmar texture and mounts which are not heavily developed. What this shows is that she is a refined, dignified, sensitive, diplomatic and sophisticated person who is

Raj Thackeray's hand analysis

Raj Thackeray’s hands were a surprise. I was expecting someone with narrow views but his hands do not show this, unlike that of his mentor, Balasaheb Thackeray. As Raj is known for his narrow politics, one wonders why it's not evident on this hands? My reading after studying his complete hand is that unlike Bal Thackeray, Raj is perfectly able to see

Idi Amin's hand reveals his lack of reasoning powers

While reading the hands of known mass murderers like Idi Amin or Adolf Hitler, one immediately looks for tell-tale signs on the hand. Perhaps Idi Amin and Hitler had something in common? Well, apart from a brutish, coarse nature that they shared, they were very different people. Both Hitler and Idi Amin were aggressive to an extreme extent – such people roughshod over others to reach their goals. But the goals of these two were different and so was their thought process.

Katrina Kaif's hand reading

Katrina Kaif is a bold and independent personality with a big heart, but at the same time, she is reserved, fairly engrossed in her own internal world, and does not give out her affections very easily.

The main characteristics of Kat’s hand are her rather long hand, developed mounts of Jupiter, Venus and lower Moon. Katrina has an average-sized thumb, a curved and long Heartline, a long stable Headline with a significant gap between it and the Lifeline. The Jupiter (index) and Saturn (middle) fingers are bent, and her Mercury (little) finger is average and a little low-set

Kurt Cobain of Nirvana - hand reading

Kurt Cobain’s hands point to a personality that was bitter and melancholy. I hesitate to use the word “suicidal” because not all people who think negative thoughts commit suicide. There is some controversy as to whether Kurt Cobain committed suicide or was murdered, and a study of his hand can offer us some clues.

The shape of his palm is large and square, his thumb tending to be low-set and long, his finger phalanges slim or waisted, and he has a fairly balanced

Rahul Dravid's hand reading

Rahul Dravid is known as “the wall” for his enormous resistance or staying power. Is this quality present on his hand? Generally speaking, the “resistance” that people have can be due to several overt reasons – strong willpower and determination, a cool head and inner mental strength. In Dravid’s case, it is more to do with his extraordinary willpower and a cool head and less to do with mental strength.
