low set pinkie, mercury finger in palmistry


I have a slightly low set pinkie. (In palmistry terms ‘Mercury finger’) Through all my studies of this finger, I have noticed that those who do not have a low set one, seem to be doing better in life than people like me. But is this true? Maybe other factors need to be included in any assumptions, but in general, to continue my studies on the subject, I would like to hear your story if you have this feature on your hands.

Here is what I think so far, let me know what you think about this: 

When the pinkie is sitting very low on the edge of the palm, it suggests under-development of the traits that the mount beneath it represent, for instance, business and confidence, especially in communication and language. I’m not referring to someone who is currently doing well as a mature age person, I’m referring to their life as they were growing up, the teenage and early adult years. Maybe even in their later years, if the mark is strong.

For most people with this mark, creative talent is often present, but they may tend to daydream about it more than create it. The creativity might only be expressed privately, home business, or such as home decorating or crafts, especially if with pointed fingertips.

If the pinkie is also small, emotional needs in relationships may be an issue. It can infer to a history of deprivation or inadequacy at a young age; whether due to hardship, setbacks or an absent or overly nurturing parent (often the case). Whatever the cause, the biggest obstacle that this feature presents that of difficulty connecting, verbalising and naivety in emotional or sexual matters. If with a weak thumb, they may also inadvertently seek a dominant or unsuitable marriage partner. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Character awareness is about recognising traits and abilities through the hands at a glance, without necessarily seeing the lines. The essential features of the hand and fingers can give clues about the temperament and natural talents. Having this knowledge can affect your choices in life, whether personal or business. You may be wondering what kind of career would suit you, or you may be considering hiring someone for a job that requires natural talent.


There are many incredible ways palmistry can improve our lives; an excellent example is when people go into a relationship, not knowing anything about the individual, and later, discover all kinds of clashes. However, a few very simple clues on the hands can help us to see the underlying personality and whether there is compatibility, and if not, knowing about it can prevent future issues.

One finger alone can depict a crucial aspect that is to do with love relationships.

  • Can you tell if someone is a real, genuine person?
  • Do you know how to tell if a person has a flawed character, such as a petty thief or a perpetual liar?
  • Imagine meeting someone for the first time, if you knew that they might have past issues that could affect the way they treat other people, you would understand them and possibly be more forgiving?
  • If you saw a quality that might be not to your ideal, you can make your decision about whether you would like to know them better.

Money making skills?

Do you need confident, ambitious and steady workers in your business? The basics of Palmistry is especially handy if you are an employer looking for a kind of employee. It saves time and money if you choose the right person for the job the first time.

What about reading the hands of children?

These fundamental principles are also extremely useful for a parent, to see something shaping in the life of your child. If an aspect is not particularly active, the parent can then use this knowledge and help the child to grow up with better support.

I cannot mention enough just how amazing this experience is. When you learn and use these basics of Palmistry, not only will you be able to see how to improve your life, but you can help others. That is a bonus.


As usual, any well-developed mount or finger suggests energy in the area it represents, so once you have learned the meanings of them, you quickly grasp the idea. The following features are the primary ones used to identify these qualities:

  • The Mounts
  • Finger length and their setting
  • Crooked or leaning fingers
  • The thumb and its setting
  • The finger phalanges
  • The fingernails
