No equivalent in Palmistry; the markings referring to Eventuality (30), would fairly apply to this organ.
[Love and talent for music.]
To point out at once, as Phrenology does, people with special musical aptitudes. Palmistry is powerless; but once those aptitudes discovered or acknowledged, Palmistry can supply accurate and minute distinctions which are entirely unknown to Phrenology. Harmony (or scientific music) is indicated by a strong Mount of the Moon, while Melody (or tuneful music) belongs to a strong Mount of Venus; with the former we shall have also knotty fingers, and with the latter smooth fingers. Counterpoint is sometimes intuitively understood by the smooth fingers, otherwise it is simply the result of close calculation. To a strong Jupiter belong noisy brass instrumental music, also solemn and religious music; to the Mount of Saturn belong the dead marches and dirges, and to the Mount of the Sun the simple and pure melodies, in direct imitation of nature. A strong Mount of Mercury denotes a talent for instrumental and orchestral music, while good Mounts of Mars call for military marches. Long fingers indicate a gift for complicated variations, trills, etc., while short fingers, with a well traced Line of the Sun, follow the text closely and are satisfied with expressing it in all its beauty.
(An easy flow of words, spoken or written.]
The Line of Head is very long, with a Mount of the Moon developed, the indication of a wide memory; add to this a strong Mount of Mars supplying the necessary energy, finally a well marked Mount of Venus that will conquer all hearts. True eloquence is always indicated by the Mounts of Mars, Mercury and Venus; a strong Mount of the Moon will make a man fluent in words but not eloquent; the Mount of the Sun will make him grandiloquent, not convincing. (34) COMPARISON. [Gift of analysis and classification]
This is expressed by the Mount of the Sun perfectly formed and with a beautiful Line of the Sun and the Mount of Mercury leaning towards the Mount of the Sun. To this are added form and imagination given by the Mounts of Venus and the Moon. The Line of Heart is long and well shaped; so is the Line of Head, which droops somevhat towards the Mount of the Moon.
[A love and: attitude for for phillosophical researches.]
All by itself it is represented by long, knotty and spatulate fingers, with soft hands and short nails. The Mount of the Moon is very prominent, and a forked Line of Head droops towards it; there is little or no Mount of the Sun. But when Causuahty is lighted up by a fine Mount of the Sun, the Mount of Mercury is prominent, the Line of Head is straight and long, the fingers are smooth and the nails short, whilst the Line of the Sun is very beautiful. In this case inspiration illumines dry, abtruse reasoning, and often reaches astounding results "by a short cut."
I have covered now the 36 Functions and Faculties determined and enumerated in the original works of Gal! and Spurzheim. Two more distinctive organs can be added to the list and are discoverable both on the head and in the hands; I'll call them B and C
Its marking in Phrenology consists in a swelling of the orbicular bone, just below the eye.
In Palmistry, this organ is indicated by the prominence of the Mount of the Moon.
[The faculty of close attention fully developed]
The fingers are square, the thumb of an average length but broad, the Line of Head narrow, straight and long; the Mount of Mercury inclines towards the Mount of the Sun, and the Line of the Sun is well marked on the Mount. The Upper Mount of Mars and the Mount of the Moon, whose union in even heights gives aversion to being disturbed and a sufficient domination over one's self, are here just one Mount without rays. The hand is sensitive but not rayed; the Mount of Jupiter is apparent but not so strong that it dominates over the Mounts of Mercury and the Sun.
