Muammar Gaddafi – Hand Reading

Muamma Gaddafi

One assumes that dictators are cruel and inhuman without a good side to them, but Colonel Gaddafi has some good personality traits.

His hand is one of the most powerful ones I have seen, showing a forceful personality. His developed mounts of Jupiter, Venus, and Mars, deep well-cut lines, strong, curved and high-set Jupiter (index finger) and strong thumb, a low-set, and the Mount of Mercury is well developed, as is the little finger. His headline is long, and slightly sloping. All this shows immense physical and mental energy and a clear purpose in life. He has a broad palm and slightly short fingers. As odd as it may sound, his purpose is not primarily a selfish one. Sure, he craves power, and it is his driving force, but it's important to remember that he has a humanitarian side to him. He has a mission, and a purpose in his leadership.

His headline and fateline show his persistence, perseverance and concentrative ability. His thumb shows his reasoning ability and diplomacy. His head is always in the lead, despite a deep heartline. This, in addition to his pragmatism, enables him to make hard, even ruthless decisions.

Check out some of his hand photographs here.

His hand shows mental as well as physical agility. He is also fairly intuitive, and very clever indeed when it comes to handling people. His shrewdness, persuasiveness and manipulative ability is the strongest aspect of his character. He can put on an act easily, and fool people.

However, despite these qualities, Gaddafi cannot be considered intelligent in the true sense of the word. His hand is too fleshy and his fingers too thick to give him true clarity of thinking. Also, there is a love of physical comforts and an overpowering desire to lord it, be in the limelight, and control others.

His hand shows aggressiveness, at times quite excessive, and mental resistance as well. Perhaps this trait, and the development of the lower part of his hand, gives us an inkling about the streak of violence in his character. He is not discouraged easily, he is a fighter. Mental strength by itself is a good character trait, but for someone like Gaddafi who likes power, it is usually counter-productive. If Gaddafi’s schemes fall flat (he is a perennial schemer and planner) he is the kind who will dig his heels in. He is stubborn as well and wilful. Arrogance and vanity are also shown on his hand.

In a nutshell, Gaddafi is a smart man with some good ideas and compassion for others, but he is not a strategist and thinker. Besides, he is loath to take advice from others. and likes power too much. Perhaps if he had been born and nurtured in a country with democratic traditions, his inherent despotic and aggressive nature could have softened and he could have made a decent leader.

  1. Interesting personality. He is not the type to give in. Is there any way you can predict the future by his lines?

  2. TN, The lines below his fingers which shows his later years are not very clear. Therefore it is not possible. Also in the photos one gets on the net, however clear they seem to be, the minor lines are not visible. The minor lines are an important indication and cannot be ignored. There were some good photos of gaddafi's hands but not so sharp as to reveal his minor or faint lines. One cannot assume he doesn't have them, although that is tempting.

  3. I think such people get addicted to power, and cannot let it go even if the power gets overwhelming and becomes a source of threat to them... What about his reasoning powers? Does the hands say anything about that?

  4. DI, he certainly has reasoning powers and some amount of brain as well. Unfortunately he also wants his way and when his emotions are aroused and if he feels his own power is at stake then his reasoning powers are overridden. That is the problem with most unbalanced personalities. They have some good things about them, but the negative qualities are too strong for the good forces to operate at all times.


    click on the above url.
    in this pic u can se a line coming out of the life line connecting the heart line.
    i assume this is called an effort line.
    your views on it.

  6. Mr. Curious, your comment had automatically gone into spam, I think because of the long url.
    Anyway, what you are referring to is another fate line starting from the life line. I am not sure what it is that you are asking here. That line is to be read as another fate line starting from the life line.
    But look, why don't you write your real name? Are you studying palmistry? If you are, what is the point of writing under an anonymous name?

  7. no i am not studying palmistry just getting a hang of the basics.

  8. Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I'm impressed!
    Extremely useful info specially the last part :) I
    care for such information a lot. I was looking for this particular info
    for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  9. which lines or marks show his bad fate in his later life?

    1. I would have to study his hand properly to answer your question. Usually when I do these readings, I rely on a few photos off the net and they are not that clear.
