q:

What is the meaning of lines on Saturn's finger?

a:

A line from the mount through the third phalange in an oblique direction shows danger of death in war: many straight lines show success in mining, but if unequal and crooked they indicate a sad and melancholy nature: twisted lines on the third phalange indicate ill luck, and on the first phalange a selfish and avaricious nature. A thick line across the second phalange shows a narrow escape from poison, and a line the whole length of the finger shows a lack of judgment.

q:

What is the indication of lines on the mount of Saturn?

a:

One upward line indicates success, but if there are cross lines they show ill luck late in life, especially if they cut the Fate line: but if the Fate line is deeper than the cross lines the difficulties are overcome. Lines from the mount of Saturn leading on to that of Jupiter are a sign of progres­sive success and honour.

q:

What does a star on Jupiter's finger indicate?

a:

On the first phalange it denotes great good fortune; on the second it indicates love of mischief and boldness, unless connected by a line with the first phalange, when the bad influence is over­come. A star on the third phalange indicates much self-faith and egotism, unless connected to the Head line by a ray and then it promises the gratification of ambition and much social success.

q:

What do cross lines on the finger of Jupiter indicate?

a:

These generally mean obstacles, but not always: on the first phalange they are signs of general debility, and when going quite round the top of the finger, they indicate danger of a wound to the head. On the second phalange these cross lines indicate moral difficulties or falsehood, envy, and general bad nature; on the third phalange they are said to be signs of inheritances, but this is not reliable unless confirmed by other signs on the hand.

q:

What is the meaning of lines on Jupiter's finger?

a:

One straight line from the mount to the second phalange shows high and noble ideas, mixed with courage and audacity; but when it goes the whole length of the finger it shows greater strength and energy of the qualities than are indicated by the development of the mount alone.
