Bent Index Finger Meaning

The index finger also called the Jupiter finger can vary in its meaning, depending on whether it is short, long, thin, thick, straight or bent. Basically, the finger represents the ego, ambitions, self-image and leadership. A bent index finger changes the meaning slightly.

A long index finger shows a highly ambitious and charismatic personality. A short one, if thick has the same meaning. It is only when it is thin and short that the qualities of Jupiter are lessened.

What is a bent index finger?

A bent index finger is when the finger itself has a curve in the bone. If the finger is just leaning towards the thumb or middle finger, the meaning is different.

A Jupiter finger that bends towards the middle finger belongs to a person who may have been a shy child, struggling with communication or independence. They may have had to depend on others, especially family. (text continues below).



It can also denote some form of insecurity, possibly due to a history of poor economic times.  However, frequently these people grow up to become very self-assertive and determined achievers, persistently working towards their goals (with a dutiful outlook on life). Especially if combined with a strong thumb and a loop of seriousness.

  • When the whole finger curves towards Saturn, it shows that in relationships, they are prone to be emotionally secretive or feel unstable; exposing a possessive or jealous nature.
  • When only the very tip is bent, the mental faculties are restrained or reserved, potentially affecting the self-image.
  • When the index (Jupiter) finger leans away from Saturn, towards the thumb, it displays a very extroverted and ambitious nature; these people also like to be in the centre of attention.
  • With the middle and the index finger naturally held wide apart, the qualities of motivation, self-confidence and individuality are celebrated. They are independent, unrestrained and not bound by the views of others.
