Loop or Whorl Patterns and What They Mean

The loop and whorl patterns are not common marks on the skin ridges of the palm. In this article, I name most of the uncommon ones. If you want to learn about the loops under the fingers, see this article here.


The loop of music at the base of the thumb, suggests one who is potentially musically talented, or at least strongly affected by music. This loop is easily mistaken for the loop of environment. Sometimes the loop of music and environment are combined into one. If so, the placement is somewhere between the two areas.


Sometimes called the loop of environment response. It describes someone who responds very quickly to his situation, not only of sounds but also of moods. They are also very sensitive although they may not realize it. The response is like a perception of the immediate surroundings, where they can quickly sense if something is dangerous or wrong. There is a negative side to this though if on an earth or fire type hand, with short fingers, the sensitivity can spill over to having a quick temper.


The loop of rhythm is more likely to be found on a talented drummer, dancer or just one with a sincere appreciation of a good tune.

The music bee is not in the form of a loop or a whorl, but instead a group of ridges which go in an opposite direction of its surrounding ridge pattern on the mount of Venus. It denotes a keen natural talent for music, especially of stringed instruments. Many people have talent in music even if they do not have this marking, so don’t be disappointed if you do not have one.


The loop of memory and loop of sensitivity are similar in their connotation, and often one is mistaken for the other because of their location on the palm. The loop of sensitivity is below the head line in the upper mount of Moon, and the loop of memory is at the end of the head line in the region of between the plain of Mars and outer Mars.

Loop and Whorl Patterns, The Whorl of Memory

The Whorl of memory is when the pattern forms a circle at the end of the head line. If you can imagine a place at the end of your thoughts where an idea gets trapped and is held there, almost like an obsession, this describes the focus of the person with one of these patterns. The loop of sensitivity is similar but with an open end which allows room for the escape of the imagination.


The loop of courage on earth or fire type hand can depict an energetic character who likes to do physical dares such as climbing the highest mountain or doing the greatest stunt.

On water or air type hand, it would be a challenge which could stretch the imagination or mental capacity. However, the thing which these opposites do have in common is that you can be sure they will be there in an emergency to save a life or prevent a dangerous situation. They will bravely soldier on in conditions where other spirits may have given up, whether it is physical, emotional or mental.


If you prefer to be outdoors, in the country or feel you have an affinity with nature, then you might have the loop of nature on your palm. These people will choose to go camping over a city nightclub, they will have a sensitivity to the feelings of animals and often love to work in the garden, but whatever it is they fancy you can be sure it will be in the open air.


In all loop and whorl patterns, one rare marking is on the Mount of Moon towards the middle of the palm. It brings the ability to be inspired by a sixth sense. The loop of inspiration is a mark of one who experiments with radical or unorthodox methods in music and the arts.


A loop which rises from the area of the rascettes shows someone who takes an interest in others and is naturally compassionate.


In loop and whorl patterns, the whorl on the Mount of Moon shows an ability to visualize very clearly. The imagination is excellent. However, they tend to daydream and get stuck in their world, unable to express who they are.


The composite whorl on the mount of Moon can have two aspects to its meaning. Here the psyche may experience emotional ups and downs or misperception about what they feel hence there may be uncertainty or difficulty in relationships.
