His hand is a good size, with shortish fingers and a long palm. There are some distinctive features on the hand. For one thing, the Apollo (ring) finger is long and the little finger, although of a decent length, is clearly low-set, and the Jupiter (index) finger is a little short. The second phalanges are shortish but the first and third phalanges are long. The mounts on his hand are developed with the moon (especially Upper Moon) and Venus mounts are well developed. The actor has a good thumb with a normal balance of the first and second phalanges. The lines on the palm are clear enough, with a short girdle of Venus and a Simian line on the right, active hand.
These signs portray a versatile and creative personality, possibly a little over the top. Being a showman
would come naturally to someone like Joaquin Phoenix, whether in his personal or professional life. Along with the desire to shine is an inherent restlessness. He would not be happy living a mundane and routine life and needs to stay passionate and involved to be happy. He is the kind who would plunge himself into something with no holds barred.

His character is such that he tends to approach everything, whether at work or in his personal life, with a single-minded focus. There is this tremendous focus of energy in the moment, an intensity which can be quite unnerving. It's a great asset to an actor as it gives the ability to immerse oneself in a role.
Expressive though he can be, when it comes to non-verbal communication, it’s an area of weakness. Emotional sensitivity is high and he is likely to be emotionally insecure as well. The actor's inability to express his true feelings could be related to this. Intimate relationships could become a challenge for these reasons and he needs a partner who will understand the phases he goes through, his moods, his sensitiveness and also his reluctance to reveal his real self.
Fame is more important to this man than money. In fact, getting rich or flaunting wealth is not his thing. He would not naturally make decisions which make him the most money. To be a complex person like this, a person who is not easy to get along with, a person who does not have his eye on the box office, and yet succeeds, involves the intervention of lady luck and also extraordinary talent.
His talent is extraordinary no doubt. There is a cerebral and intellectual quality to it which is rare in actors.
