Signs in Palmistry that Can Reveal a Person Who Have Criminal or Violent Tendencies

Updated on June 23, 2013

Palmistry can be effective in the study of criminals. In fact, it can be used to recognize whether people are ‘born criminals’ or if their environment is responsible. Below here are few signs among many other ways in palmistry that can show people with violent or criminal tendencies.

Mount of Venus

In palmistry, Venus mount indicates passion. People with well-developed mount of Venus will work hard to achieve their goals. It can also indicates success in business, shrewdness, as well as criminal tendencies. An overdeveloped Venus mount means an unhealthy and over-exercised desire for sensual activities such as drinking, eating, or sexual appetites.

However, you should not judge this mount by its height alone, many palmists believe that wide mounts of Venus are better than full ones. Fullness here suggests self-indulgence and selfishness, if it is high and hard-packed then it denotes a demanding and selfish nature.

Mount of Mars

Look at the edge of someone’s hand, the palmists call this area the Outer Mount of Mars or the ‘percussion’. Mars represents war, and those who have the Mount of Mars on their palms are firm, brave, fearless and frank. When this percussion is thick and meaty, especially if it is also reddish or has an outward bulge then very little will shock the person. He may also lose his temper very easily and can become violent or upset when drink too much.

People with over developed mount of Mars can become a villain, tyrant, or a criminal. They would lead in all anti-social activities. These people also possess a rebellious streak.

Clubbed or Murderer's Thumb

In palm reading, the clubbed thumb is also called as the murderer’s thumb. This is because those who have this type of thumb (especially with spatulate fingers) have a very powerful temper. They are brutal and like animals in their unreasonable obstinacy. The clubbed thumb has a short first section or phalange and is broad. The thumbnail is short and broad, and the tip of the thumb is fleshy.

The thumb is the most important finger to read in palm reading. This is because thumb reveals your level of willpower, independence and decisiveness in life. People who possess clubbed thumbs have no control over themselves, these people are liable to go to any extreme of crime or violence during one of their tempers. A hard and thick hand with spatulate fingers can also shows of a person with criminal tendencies.

Jupiter Fingers

Short index finger has also been linked to a higher chhance of ending up in prison, going mad, or being murdered – in children, higher rates of hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder. If the finger of Saturn (or second finger) is longer by ½ inch or more than the forefinger, then the person will certainly be a murderer (according to palmistry).

Other Signs:

When you touch the hands, they are hard and tough.

If the heart and head lines are short.

When a star is found on the third phalange of the second finger.

If there is a big cross found in the triangle.

      I'm a professional palmist, tarot reader n psychic. I found the clubbed thumb to indicate a person who suppressed anger-but many women (who predominantly have them) DO suppress their anger, in western society. The people who have these thumbs, & I've known a few women with it, personally....they are either very manipulative, or their "mask" drops, periodically.
