See Zest for Life From Your Venus Mount.
The mounts are the padded areas on the palms. The areas are named after planets, and the ones located under the fingers have the same name as the finger, except the thumb, that just has the Venus mount. If a mount appears to be flat, it can indicate that the person does not put much energy into that part of their life.
A large, well-developed mount would suggest the opposite, where much focus directs to the area. However, as a standard rule, if the hand has large mounts all over, the person has high energy levels with enthusiasm for life. If the palm mostly consists of flat mounts, there is less zest for life.
MARKINGS ON THE MOUNTS
Markings on these mounts affect the area described, often heightening the qualities of the mount, or showing an over-use of a matter. Some distinct markings can be a positive sign, depending on what the mount represents. (article continues below)
Sometimes these mounts are not found directly below, and in the centre of the finger, this is called a displaced mount. When this occurs, the qualities from one mount share with another. The fingers, which relate to the mounts, share similar qualities, often a well-developed mount also displays a well-developed finger. (article continues below)

The Venus mount located at the ball of the thumb symbolises beauty, seduction, romance and love. It also shows the well-being of the individual, indicating how much energy and affection is available; a flexible, well-rounded mount is ideal, showing someone friendly, sympathetic and affectionate. A very flat and wrinkly Venus mount is a lack of Zest for life. (See the video lesson about this and Mars mount here.)
The Jupiter finger and mount beneath the index finger represent the self-confidence, pride, ego, religion and the strengths and weaknesses of the character. If the Jupiter mount shares the space partially beneath the Saturn finger, there is hands-on ability to achieve goals. (See the video about Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Apollo).
The Saturn finger (middle finger) and mount beneath it represent your boundaries; it is the balancing force of the psyche aiding rational thought. It is also the symbol of the elderly, grandparents and wise men. A large mount here can reveal pessimism or one with many responsibilities. Positive aspects show an organised and dependable person.
Beneath the ring finger, positive aspects of Apollo show a versatile and adaptable person. Negative aspects point to gambling (risk taking) or paying too much attention to appearances.
If the mount of Apollo is displaced towards the mount of Saturn or between the two fingers, the creative side of the personality is significant; often these people have a loop of seriousness. A little finger and mount display introvert qualities. (See article about the success line on Apollo here.)
If the mount of Mercury is large and is partially under Apollo, the communication element is used creatively, such as a writer. This displacement usually happens when there is high Apollo line that rises all the way to the finger.
The pinkie (Mercury) finger plays a significant role in the overall balance of character; if well-developed, it lessens the struggles to succeed in all areas of life. (See an article about the pinkie meanings here).
This area opposite the Venus mount is the mount of Moon. (See video here) It represents the mother, the wife, and fertility. It associates with the subconscious, sensitivity and the emotions. In a man, it still signifies his sensitivity, although he might not show it.
The area of Pluto joins the Moon mount and likewise represents the subconscious and imagination. It has a connection to things such as occultism, death, obsessions and sexual energy. It also reveals the nurturing and maternal instincts. In some hands, this area appears to droop below the wrist lines.
The areas of Mars run through the centre of the palm; they show the strength of character, in general. The outer Mars area under the mount of Mercury and above the
The area below the mount of Jupiter and the inside of the thumb is where we find our physical courage and energy. It symbolises action, boldness, and virility. The inner Mars also represents assertiveness, aggression, and violence. A developed mount would belong to an athlete or someone in the military because it shows a higher level of temper and impulsiveness, these people love danger.
Neptune represents inspiration, sentiment, dreams, healing and psychics. However, there is a connection between drug addicts and depression. It shows a highly developed sense of psychology and awareness, but also of perception of ideas, building, and inventions. With a well-developed mount, the individual often has a love of being near water.
Uranus is a mount that is rarely visible, and its position in the palm is controversial. It has sometimes been said to lie in between the head and heart line next to the mount of Jupiter. However, mostly it is found near the area where the fate line and head line meet, or on the edge of the mount of Moon.
