Bent Middle Finger
Do you have a bent middle finger? Ideally, the middle finger (also named the Saturn finger) is straight, showing self-control and responsibility. The middle finger represents your boundaries; it is the balancing force of the psyche aiding rational thought. As well as that, it symbolises the elderly, grandparents and wise men. It shows how much a person leans towards obligation and self-control. Saturn is also about melancholy, reclusiveness and isolation.
When it is bent, however, the boundaries and beliefs may be somewhat out of the ordinary. The bearer does not often have strict rules or routine in their life, and decision-making is not their best quality. It depends on which way the finger leans towards. If only the very tip of the finger is crooked, it will have a more notable meaning. It can be that there has been a change in mindset through past circumstances. There may have been mental confusion that affected decision making, thoughts, and intuitive faculties (the way things are perceived). (Check the head line for marks etc.)
Bending towards the ring finger
If the bent middle finger bends towards the ring finger, the serious qualities of (Saturn) favour towards the creative aspects. These people need time to be alone. It can also suggest a history of uncertainty, depression or pressure from family duties that have clashed with their search for self-expression or achievement.
When all the fingers bend inwards (naturally, not due to disease), it adds shrewdness to the character. They may have a distortion of reality in their life, which may lead to corruption or unlawfulness, especially if the middle finger is short.
The middle finger rarely bends towards the thumb, but if it has a lean in that direction, away from the ring finger, it shows an extroverted and very independent character. These people are free thinkers; not concerned a great deal about the future. Being responsible with finances can be a challenge, especially if there is a gap at the base between the ring and middle finger.
If the index finger also leans towards the thumb, ambition, self-esteem, confidence and ego are active, especially if coupled with a large or long thumb. They are independent and not bound by the views of others. These people strive to succeed in life. They are regularly talkative and energetic, especially if combined with an extended Mercury finger.
BROKEN OR SCARRED FINGERS
I once read the hands of a man who had a very badly bent middle finger, it was also scarred from an obvious injury. I asked him what happened to his finger and he told me the story of what happened in an accident. Even though the bend did not occur through gradual development, I still take it into account in reading the palm.
I asked him if he had an unpleasant or difficult time during or after that incident? (remembering that Saturn is about responsibility, the law, and solitude). He admitted he did, in fact, he had spent several years in jail for unintentionally killing a person in a car accident. (He was under the influence of alcohol). I wasn’t surprised, and it is a good example. Of course, that kind of incident is not going to be the same for everyone. Instead, there might be something in the past that relates to responsibility.
We can assume the same for any other broken or damaged fingers. Think about what the finger stands for and use that connotation to for your conclusion. A Mercury break, for instance, could be a sign of difficulties in family relations, dishonesty, commerce or learning obstacles. Problems with the ring finger can be about personal relationships, social matters or even creativity. The index finger is about the ‘self’, so maybe about confidence issues.
