Jared Leto – a sensitive, generous soul

A few photos of Jared Leto’s hands on the net are quite clear – of both his hands. One doesn’t normally find such photos of famous people so freely available, but when they are, it’s an incentive to study the hand. 

The shape of the hand is distinctly visible – the broadish palm, slightly short fingers, slim, squarish at the tips and curved, except for the Mercury or the little finger, which is straight. The mounts of Moon and Venus are developed well and the first and third phalanges are long. Overall, the hand is good, in the sense that there aren’t too many lines cluttering up the palm, and the fingers are more or less balanced with each other as is the palm balanced with the length of the fingers.

What struck me immediately is the difference between Jared’s left (passive) hand and the right (active) hand. Three of the main lines, the Heart, the Head and Fate or Saturn line are markedly different on both hands. The lifeline is the only major line which seems similar on both hands.

Uddhav Thackeray – practical rather than idealistic

The Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Uddhav Thackeray calling on the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, in New Delhi on February 21, 2020 (Uddhav Thackeray) (cropped)Uddhav Thackeray* became the Chief Minister of Maharashtra in controversial circumstances, by joining hands with a rival political party, which oddly enough was mentioned just passingly in Wikipedia. It was believed that joining hands with a party ideologically so polar opposite was going against the people's mandate. It is not surprising that today he has lost control over the Shiv Sena party. He went against its ideals, ostensibly so he could become the Chief Minister. This is something which would have shocked the founder of the Shiv Sena Party, Uddhav's own father –  Bal Thackeray.

What do Uddhav's hands tell us about his personality? He has long hands, in particular, a long palm, and in comparison, the fingers are short with rounded tips. The first phalanges are long, and the second phalanges are average. However, his head and heart lines appear to be balanced with each other and straightish (one can never be absolutely sure of the lines with the kind of photos one has to work with). His Apollo (ring) finger is dominant and the Jupiter finger is a little low-set. Both the Saturn (middle) and Jupiter (index) fingers are a little bent. The mounts of Lower Mars, Moon and Venus are the most developed mounts on the hand.

All these signs point to an enthusiastic individual, impatient at times, and certainly, quite action and goal-oriented, although with an intellectual and theoretical approach to problems. What saves him from becoming too theoretical
