What Ranveer Singh's hands tell us about him

When I looked at Ranveer Singh’s hands I was sure I would find signs of an extroverted and bold personality because that is the impression he gives. Besides, as he works in the movies, it was likely that he was actually extroverted. To my surprise, his hands showed the opposite!

Ranveer has shortish fingers, a broad, wide palm, and deep lines of Head, Life and Heart. His headline is tied to the lifeline and is not too high or too low on the hand. It goes across the hand in a fairly straightforward manner but does not go to the percussion. The heartline is curving and rises towards the space between the first two fingers. The mounts of Venus, Moon (more so the middle part) and Jupiter are developed. The first (Jupiter) finger is a little bent and the first phalanges of his fingers are long but

The hands of The Rock: Dwayne Johnson

Writing about Dwayne Johnson’s hands isn’t easy as most of his personality characteristics are well known to the world. He is an open person, perhaps that is why. What new character attribute can his hands reveal? Maybe one can find something on his hand that isn’t so obviously known or something which doesn’t fit his known personality.

Dwayne, a tall man (he is six feet four inches in height) with large, fleshy hands and broad and wide palms, a low-set widely held thumb and heavily developed Moon and Venus mounts and Mars too. The lifeline, slightly apart from the headline, sweeps across the developed mount of Venus, going wider into the palm as it goes forward. These signs reveal his

Is MJ Akbar a sexual predator?

After the spate of sexual harassment allegations faced by MJ Akbar (a newspaper editor and ex-minister in the Indian government), I looked at his hands to see if there was something on his hands which explained it. It was shocking to hear that a man with such a formidable reputation and a family, should get himself into the news in this unsavoury manner

His hands are a good size and the fingers long and slim, with significantly long first phalanges. He has sensitive pads on the tips of his fingers, and the main lines are fairly clear. The Saturn (Fate) line starts early and is quite dark until well into the forties. The Apollo (Sun) line is clear too and visible from a young age, an unusual marking for a journalist. The palm is slightly rectangular, not too much, and the lower mount of Mars is very highly developed, along with the Jupiter mount. The rounded tips of his fingers, the strong heartline (stronger than the head line) and the long thumb all tell us a story.

Take a look at his hands at the link provided here. (The photo of MeToo published on this post is a free photo from Pexels.)

These hands clearly belong to someone who has been

Martin Luther King Jr.

There are few hands which are as simple to read as the hands of Martin Luther King Jr. Simple because there are fewer lines on his hand and the other hand features are easy to recognise for what they are. There is a lot of information about him on the net, but here you can get details Martin Luther King Jr. which are revealed by studying his hand.

Unlike some other hands where one has to examine a hand from several angles to decide whether the thumb is low-set or high-set or just normally set. No such problem arises when one is reading MLK’s hands. The thumb is long and clearly low-set, with a good balance of the phalanges. And the lines on this hand are clear and dark, with the minor lines missing. His fingers are all straight, with long first and second phalanges and the Jupiter finger is short. The heartline is long and curved, the headline more or less straight and the mounts of Jupiter, Venus and lower Mars are well developed.

Interestingly, the fateline is not visible after the age of 40 years. MLK was assassinated at the age of 39. This does not mean that

Jawaharlal Nehru was not a weak leader

Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister, does not have an extraordinary hand but his hand shows a good mind, a strong will and warmth of personality. There has been criticism about how he handled his job, particularly the 1962 skirmish with the Chinese.

What kind of a man was Nehru? Born into a wealthy, political family, he was catapulted into the position. Did he deserve it?

Nehru's hand is rather fleshy, with well-developed mounts of Venus and Moon, as well as the Jupiter mount. Possibly the Mercury mount is developed too, but with not too many photos of his hands on the net, could not confirm this. The Mars mounts are reasonably developed and the fingertips are rounded, and the Jupiter (index) finger distinctly conic. Nehru’s fingers are evenly balanced in length, with slightly thick third phalanges and long first phalanges. His Mercury (little) finger is longish and slightly bent, and possibly the index finger is also bent a little. He has a strong,

The hand reading of Jack Ma

Enabling eCommerce- Small Enterprises, Global Players (39008130265) (cropped)Jack Ma, the Chinese businessman, has an interesting hand, the kind which could baffle some hand readers because Ma does not have strong, well-etched lines. Strong lines show a strong, clear-headed and focused personality so does this mean that Ma is not a strong personality? This cannot be because Jack Ma is the founder of the Alibaba group and he is not just a businessman with a high net worth (over 4000 crore or 39.1 billion USD) but also a politician and philanthropist.

Without strong lines on his hands, how did Jack Ma take Alibaba to such great heights? Well, for one thing, all his lines are not weak. The fateline on his hand is not very clear, not visible in the photos on the internet. Possibly, he does have a clear but thin fateline, not as dark as the other main lines. Considering Ma's success, one would have expected a stronger fateline. And as for the headline, it is by no means a superior one, although it is better on the right active hand – which shows that he is a self-made man. One can call it an average headline. The heartline and lifeline appear to be good though, well shaped and dark, and perhaps these compensate for the other lines.

His hand shape is good. Long, slim

Sanjay Dutt's hand reading

The movie "Sanju" is about the life of Sanjay Dutt, and has been criticised for glossing over Dutt's transgressions. It has been said that the film is dishonest. Is it dishonest?

In other words, is Sanjay Dutt a good guy or a bad guy? 

The facts of Sanjay Dutt's life are all over the media - about his difficult relationships, the drugs, buying weapons from criminals and so on. Looking at these facts makes one wonder whether Sanjay Dutt can really be the confused good-intentioned soul that the movie attempts to portray.

The hands can reveal the real person. They can give us an idea who Sanjay Dutt really is.

Dutt's hand is not the best. Not refined. He has

Melania Trump's hand reading

Melania Trump official portrait What lies behind Melania Trump’s smile? Her hand can tell us what goes on behind that pretty exterior, and give us a glimpse into her real personality.

Melania has a good hand shape, her palm and fingers are well balanced, and both her head and heart lines are balanced as well. The thumb and Jupiter (index) fingers are conic-tipped. Her first phalanges are average, and she holds her Jupiter and Saturn (middle) fingers close together, and the latter leans towards the former. Her lines are fine, with fairly long heart and headlines, both slightly curved. The Mercury (little finger) is significantly apart, and the thumb is normal in length and held close to her hand. The Jupiter finger is high-set and dominates the Apollo (ring) finger. The mounts of Moon and Venus are developed, though not excessively so.

These hand features tell us something about Melania Trump’s character. She is an

Alia Bhatt's hand reading

Alia Bhatt is the new Bollywood heartthrob. Everyone wants to know what she is like in real life. Is she the typical film star, a spoilt rich brat, or is her personality actually that of an innocent girl-next-door?

Well, her hand does not show arrogance, although it does show a great desire for fame and name. This is an inherited quality which has been

Rodrigo Duterte's Hand Reading

If I hadn't known that these were the hands of the President of the Philippines, Robert Duterte, I would never have guessed it.

The lower portion of this hand is dominant, the thumb high-set and closely held (near the palm), the second phalange of the thumb is thick, the quadrangle (space between the head and heart lines) is narrow, and the headline is average. The Jupiter (index) and Mercury (pinky) fingers are pointed, a fairly unusual sign in a successful politician. And the Mercury finger is long as well. The mounts are mostly well developed, particularly the Mount of Moon, and the Jupiter finger is bent. When read together these signs do not paint a pretty picture.

This hand shows a personality that is impulsive, and idealistic to an extreme. The ideals that the owner of this hand holds may are not always practical.

Mark Zuckerberg's hand reading

Mark Zuckerberg F8 2019 Keynote (32830578717) (cropped) Mark Zuckerberg, the young technology billionaire entrepreneur has a good set of hands – broad palms, longish fingers, and a strong thumb with a good balance of both phalanges. What can we know of his personality from reading his hands? The phalanges of all his fingers are well balanced. He has sensitive pads at the tips of his fingers (an unusual sign for a businessman) and a slightly short Jupiter finger. He has good Apollo and Mercury fingers, with the latter slightly bent.

It is difficult to see the palmar lines, but from whatever little is visible from the photos on the web,

Why do you want to know your future?

People want to know when they will die (even when they are healthy); if they will get divorced (even if they are in a happy marriage); or if they should start a business. Queries like these are very common.

My response is usually an apology. I tell them that I am unable to answer their questions because the hand cannot reveal the answers with any accuracy. Not surprisingly, I never hear from them again.

I know they will go to others who will give them exactly what they want. These predictions can come true 50-70% of the time, the accuracy depending on the guesswork of the person who is doing the guessing.

I regularly get emails from people who are frightened out of their wits, asking me

Ashton Kutcher's hand reading

Ashton Kutcher may not be a very big movie star, but he is a popular one. He was always a bit of an enigma because he married a woman much older than himself – Demi Moore. What brought him into the news again was when he married his childhood co-actor, Mila Kunis, who is nearer his age. What do Kutcher's hands tell us about his personality?

The actor has a broad palm and fine lines, with a gap between his head and lifelines, a larger gap on the left, passive hand. His heartline dominates the hand. He has a strong Apollo finger, and a slightly bent, low set Jupiter finger. These hand features reveal some interesting facts about Kutcher's personality.

Ten Frequently Asked Questions about Hand Reading (PALMISTRY FAQS)

Here are some FAQs on Palmistry or Hand reading. And the answers to them. 

1) Is palmistry a legitimate, proven science or an art of intuition? Even worse, is it merely unreliable speculation? 

There is a vast ancient knowledge about hand reading and this knowledge has been built upon by many good modern authors on palmistry. When it comes to actually using this knowledge, some palmists and hand readers use intuition, astrology, psychology and superstition, and combine it with tidbits of ancient palmistry knowledge to draw conclusions. This tends to discredit palmistry.

Even if intuition is accurate at times, to rely on it or to act as if it is about hand reading is not correct. From the number of emails I get every week from people who have been victims of palmists who make dire, frightening predictions,

Swami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON

Swami Prabhupada* was a spiritual teacher and was the founder of ISKCON (International Society of Krishna Consciousness) and like many of his kind has inspired millions of people. Yet, despite the reams of material written about spiritual leaders and their life and death, one always wants to be sure of their genuineness. The hands are a useful tool to help figure this out.

The Swami has a large hand, with long, clear lines, more or less straight fingers which are neither short nor long. His head and heart lines are balanced with each other. The lifeline is strong, and the palm, though rectangular in shape, is big, and not narrow. He also has large nails, pronounced knots, and good first phalanges. His thumb seems to be a little low set, even if held close to the hand.

These hand features tell us that Swami Prabhupada was clear-headed, and

Meghan Markle's personality as revealed by her hands

Meghan Markle - 2018 (cropped) Meghan Markle has a long hand, with shortish fingers. The phalanges of her fingers are slim, often waisted. She has a distinctively long first phalange of Jupiter (index finger), and also a long first phalange of the Mercury (little finger). Both the first and second phalanges of her Apollo (ring) finger are good. Of the mounts on her hand, the Mercury, Jupiter and Moon mounts are the most developed. There is a Simian line on her right (active) hand which is not present on her left (passive) hand. It is not possible to see the other lines very clearly but she has prominent Saturn and Apollo lines on the respective mounts.

If one has to choose one word which describes her, from studying her hand, it would be

The hands of M.I.A Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam

The most fascinating personalities are those who have changed because of their circumstances. And this can be made out by comparing their left (passive) and right (active) hands, assuming that they write with their right hands. In the case of the music star and British-Sri Lankan rapper, Matangi M.I.A. (also known as Maya)*, it is so. Generally speaking, this would indicate an unusual (and at times tumultuous) life, emotionally speaking at least. Considering she was a Tamil refugee from Sri Lanka to the UK, it isn't surprising that she led an eventful life which impacted her character. The active hand (the writing hand) reveals the current self, while the passive shows the subconscious or the inherited personality. 

Mathangi has longish fingers and a longish palm, and this shape points to a sensitive, vulnerable, and intuitive person, a person for whom feelings are important. Her heartline is strong, on both hands, and this fits in
