Loop and Whorl Patterns and What They Mean
For over five centuries of observation and study of genetic medicine, psychology and brain science, scientists have proof that examining the character from loop and whorl patterns on the palm is possible. I believe that understanding your nature is the ultimate way to enrich your life, and the prints and palm ridge patterns are, without a doubt, a great place to begin.
Unlike fingerprints, whorls on the palm itself are uncommon; you might not even be aware that they exist. Loops are the usual patterns we see on the palms, but most people will only have one or two. While the whorls on the palms are rare, they are fascinating because their impression is a part of our natural character. If you want to learn about the loops under the fingers, see this article here.
Dermatoglyphics is the scientific term used to describe skin ridges, more commonly known as finger and palm prints. These prints are not only used in forensic analysis but also in medical research to try to recognize specific abnormalities or disorders.
LOOP OF MUSIC
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.
LOOP OF RHYTHM
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 the 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.
LOOP OF ENVIRONMENT
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.
LOOP OF MEMORY AND LOOP OF SENSITIVITY
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 between the plain of Mars and outer Mars.

LOOP OF COURAGE
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 that 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.
LOOP OF NATURE
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.
LOOP OF INSPIRATION
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.
LOOP OF EMPATHY
A loop that rises from the area of the rascettes shows someone who takes an interest in others and is naturally compassionate.
WHORL OF IMAGINATION
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.
COMPOSITE WHORL ON THE MT. OF MOON
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.
