A well developed Mount of Mercury; the fingers very long, smooth (knotted with the classifiers) and quite spatulate; the Mount of the Moon is in evidence. The hands are soft, the nails short, and the Line of Head quite long, rising slightly at its termination towards the Mount of Mercury; there is a Line of Intuition and a good Mount of Jupiter.
[Good Judgment and memory of shapes and The Line of Life curving somewhat abnormally inside the hand, thus giving an unusual development to the Mount of Venus. A beautiful Line of the Sun and smooth fingers, square without excess. Whenever fingers are square the artistic tendency lies entirely towards the classical, and a painter or sculptor with that characteristic will never be able to do anything without a model.

With the Mount of Mars, the Mount of Jupiter gives also a preference for very bright colors; the Mount of Saturn for dark colors; the Mount of the Sun secures the gift of true coloring; the Mount of Mercury indicates a taste for weak coloring, the Mount of the Moon loves a silver blonde coloring, and the Mount of Venus all pinkish tints.
[A strong taste for traveling; a need at change.]
The Line of the Sun and the Mount of the Moon strongly developed, indicating respectively journeys by land and voyages by sea; cross lines on the Percussion along the Mount of the Moon and upward lines from the Rascette. Accidents during travels or voyages are marked by islands, crosses or stars on these lines.
