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 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(pinky) finger and thumb, both of which are long, although the Mercury finger is a little low-set. These hand features are also critical to analysing a person's character if one is using palmistry. Often, they play a significant role in an individual's eventual success.

Oprah's palm lines tell us of an extraordinarily

clear-thinking individual with purpose and focus. 

Her headline is long, well-etched, slightly sloping and separated signficantly at the start from the lifeline. The heartline is also long and reaches the mount of Jupiter. The lifeline is very dark. The three main lines on her hand are perfectly in tandem with each other and the quadrangle (the space between the head and heart lines) is very good. The thumb is a good length, medium-set and held a little apart from the hand. The phalanges of her fingers (the partitions in the front of one's fingers) are also well-balanced with each other.

The most prominent mounts on her hand are the Moon and Venus mounts.

The hand shows capability (ability to perform tasks efficiently), leadership ability (understanding people and being able to control and lead them) as well as organisational ability. There is also a strong creative and imaginative side to her. While her hand does not show superior intellectual capability, her personality more than compensates for it. She has a friendly, warm, and bold personality, a go-getting type of personality. She is serious when she has to be and is a hard worker with a lot of verve and energy.

Besides, she has the ability to think, analyse, investigate and introspect and her hand also shows marketing/business ability as well as academic ability. People with this combination are able to study if they choose to due to their good memory and ability to concentrate.

Not all people who are this mentally able are also this mentally stable. And good human beings to boot! Well, Oprah is. 

Her hand tells us that she is a compassionate person with a love for all human beings. She is very people-oriented. She is imaginative and there is a part of her which is a loner and this might make her want solitude. At times her imagination may take a turn for the morbid but she is the kind who is too mentally strong for it to lead her astray. and what’s most important is Oprah’s emotional stability which keeps her on an even keel.

The only issue is that Oprah is not that good at taking advice. But her hand also shows flexibility and an understanding nature.

She is a loving, strong, and loyal person, without being nervous or overly emotional. She is not too stubborn although she is focussed and firm. She has a good reasoning ability and good judgement. 

She has the ability to understand human beings and she can understand nuances very well although strangely her hand does not show a very great eloquence. She was a talk show star so she must have got by because of her other good qualities. She must have worked hard for it. 

Money is important to Oprah. Always was. In fact, she has a liking for money, and a nose for business. However, this is balanced out by her idealistic nature when it comes to her work. She wants to lead, but she has strong beliefs and will stick to these beliefs whether practical or not. 

There are other things on her hand which are not perfect. Her hand also shows that she is capable of being manipulative and can be very shrewd at times, too shrewd. In other words, she is not as straightforward as she appears to be.

She can be quite judgmental and has a way of seeing things from her own perspective, and while this may not necessarily be a selfish one, it may not take into account all views.

Oprah was born with all her good qualities, and probably this is why she weathered the storms of her childhood so well. Some people crumble, but not someone like her. However, it is said that her first six years were spent in a stable environment and this must be the reason why she was able to keep her inner core intact. 

Perhaps her difficult childhood motivated her to make something of her life. Not all able people achieve as much as she has, even with the qualities she has.

  1. Perhaps she has an ideal hand?

    Destination Infinity

  2. Does it seem so from what I have written? Well, that was not my intention because it depends what is ideal. If there is an ideal hand to me it would be the hand of Bill Gates.

    Oprah's hand her hand does not show a very high intelligence nor high sensitivity or any kind of artistic talent. Nor does it show a truly broadminded nature and nor is she straightforward. I do not see her hand as ideal.

  3. Her hand may not be ideal but she certainly is an ideal figure for many. She is generous with her money and time for any cause that she supports.She has transcended many barriers including that of race in many ways. I wouln't go so far as to call her saintly but she has many things in common with people who fall into that category.Her hand may not reveal her intelligence which perhaps has come to her over the years of managing her huge business empire.What her hand reveals and is really the cause of her success is her strong will to make something of her life which she has done, although this same will power has let her down in her fight against reducing her weight:) I used to watch her shows several years ago when I had the time - they were pretty interesting and down to earth.

  4. Thanks for the feedback Padmini. I agree that the most admirable thing about her is her motivation to succeed against all odds, and breaking the race barrier. Also, there is no doubt that she has intelligence although it is of a different kind, I think what they call emotional intelligence and also business intelligence or being very very street smart. I too used to watch her shows for awhile and like her a lot myself. And yes she has a very big heart, no doubt about that.

  5. P.S. I wonder why she let her weight increase. It is a mystery but I think that in her heart of hearts she doesn't care that much about it.
