Chester Bennington - Suicide and Hand Reading

Chester Bennington, a famous musician, committed suicide at 41, leaving fans shocked. Was there any indication on Chester Bennington’s hand which could have given a hint as to why he did it? Is there a clue in his personality?

Famous palmists like Cheiro have written about suicidal hands and such hands were mostly of people incapable of living a normal life due to their precarious mental state, unable to function in real life. It was rare for successful and famous people to kill themselves at the time.

Today it is more common. It may flummox ordinary people as to why a successful and famous person would want to die, but the pressures they face are high, and if their self-esteem is tied to continued success, it can lead to depression. Today, in modern times, success is transient, competition ruthless, the public fickle, and drugs and alcohol freely available and used without social stigma, particularly by the rich and famous. Whether related to this or not, the suicide rate amongst famous and successful people is rising, and some of these celebs have been known to suffer from depression and addiction issues.

It is known that Chester Bennington suffered from depression off and on from a young age, and also battled issues with addiction. Is this visible on his hand?

Chester Bennington has a broad palm, a long low-set thumb, and a very highly developed Lower Mars and Jupiter mounts as well as bent fingers. His lines are not very deeply etched.

Check out a photo of his hand here or here. (as he was left-handed, a link to his left hand photographs is provided)

The bent Saturn and Jupiter fingers are similar to that of Kurt Cobain (who also is believed to have committed suicide) although Cobain’s Saturn finger appears to be more severely bent. A significantly bent middle finger does point to a critical, negative attitude, and in Bennington’s hand is exacerbated by the longish third phalange of Saturn, and developed Moon mount, and poorly developed Upper Mars. These signs can indicate feelings of solitariness and moodiness and lead to feelings of discouragement. These characteristics do not necessarily point to a depressive personality, because finally, it depends on the mind. In Bennington’s case the Headline is not clearly visible in photographs on the internet but if one has to guess from one blurred photo, he could cope with reality. However, his lines are not deeply etched. This does point to someone who was delicate mentally, but there is nothing really which could have told us that he would kill himself.

Was his suicide an impulsive act then? There are indications that the suicide was not planned. His hand shows impulsiveness.

If one has to sum up one can say that Bennington’s hands show him to be a moody, lonely and talented person, and a very sensitive and compassionate one as well. However, his hands also show him to be aggressive, pushy, controlling and an ambitious go-getter. Almost like he was two different people.

People kill themselves when they feel they have no hope, and my theory after studying his hand is that he killed himself because his temperament was at odds with itself, unable to handle the ups and downs that success brings with it in the modern world. And he wanted success like no other.

  1. Thank you very much for that post!

    "he wanted success like no other"
    But he had greatest success, it's hard to imagine, what more could he gain in his career.

    We can only wonder, why it wasn't enough for him.

    1. One can never know what was going on in his mind.
