Archetypal Combinations: The side of Palmistry nobody talks about

Everyone knows palm readers look into the lines of the hands for information about the person. This is simply another way in which palmistry is misunderstood; for it is the Archetypal combination as seen in the hand that gives the palmist most information about the individual, not the lines of the hand.

The mounts are the pads of flesh that rise up in the palm. Every hand is different, and the height and fullness varies from one person the the next.

The Mount(ain)s of the hands reflect the fertile areas of the mind.

Each mount represents “one of the original types” in the plan of creation, so it is the development of a certain one or more of these Mounts that you can tell to which type the subject belongs. The Seven Archetypes are as follows: Jupiter, Saturn, Apollo, Mercury, Mars, Venus and Luna. These are seven different personalities that balance all of humanity.

It’s worth noting that many older palmistry documents talk about the Archetypes in pure form and mixed. At this point in evolution, the year 2021, most people are a combination of two or three dominant archetypes. Technological advancements have created possibilities for the mixing-up of the human race at a far accelerated rate than could have been imagined in the 1700s. International flight, for instance, does a great deal to mingle different cultures thus creating a hybrid of archetypes worldwide.

The Seven Archetypes are as follows:

Jupiter: The Leader: Usually large people, long white teeth, attractive in appearance, vital
Saturn: The Scholar: The tallest of the types, lanky and inclined toward poor health
Apollo: The Artist: Cat-like eyes, well-proportioned, walks with a spring in their step
Mercury: The Communicator: The smallest of the types, small features and very fast
Mars: The Warrior: Thick neck, broad chest, small ears, red hair
Luna: The Visionary: Second-tallest, thick legs, usually pale in skin tone
Venus: The Lover: Beauty in appearance & character; love in everything; doll-like face

The Seven Archetypes have personalities and physical characteristics individual to each type. Through observing a person, Astrophysiognomists can determine the basic type of person before them, therefore possessing the ability to tell a person of their probably future and what trials will be presented to them in this lifetime.

(Nor should I digress further, it is worth pointing out as well that the existence of pure archetypes was one way in which diviners could speak of specific characteristics regarding someone’s appearance. For instance, a palmist could see a chance line running from the Mount of Mars to the Heart Line, indicating a love affair with a Martian-archetype person. Well Martians are usually built very sturdily, have red hair, and are very passionate, etc. Mars being in the pure type, a palmist could tell a client “you will fall in love with someone with red hair.” Whereas now the Archetypes have been mixed, making it harder to say with certainty in physical appearance of significant people.)

Palmists may determine a person’s archetypal combination by looking at the mounts of the hand in addition to observing their physical appearance and sometimes even consulting a person’s birth chart! An archetypal analysis is essential to determining a person’s personality, thus being able to read their hands with accuracy and efficacy.

Looking at the lines in the hand alone will not give enough information about the person attached. It is to understand their archetypal composition in combination with the significant markings of the lines that yields accurate hand analysis! I cannot stress this enough!

A strong Saturn line will manifest differently on a Venusian versus a Saturnian.

A Lunarian with a poor Head Line is in grave danger, whereas such a formation would not take such an ominous form on a Mercurian.

It is by judgement of the mounts in the hands that the real character of a person is understood.

The placement of the dermal apex, size, and height of the mount all contribute to it’s prominence. For prominence in the hand equals prominence in the personality. To know the subject’s personality is paramount in accurately reading their hands.

Palmists measure the prominence of each mount and rank them in order to find the most prominent mount types/archetypal combination.

A person can be Jupiterian-Saturnian-Lunarian, for example. Meaning Jupiter would be strongest in their personality, Saturn second, and Lunarian third. (And in this case Jupiter would be their saving grace for health because Saturn and Luna are both prone towards sickness whereas Jupiter is usually a healthier type.)
