What is the ring of Saturn?
The ring of Saturn is a palmistry term referring to a single or double curved (half circle) line beneath the middle finger. It can be called the great circle or the ring of Morgana. (NOTE: It is not a ring of Saturn if the skin ridges alone form a half-circle.) Sometimes the ring of Saturn is a slightly V shape. Other times it is a group of curved lines that are not wholly joined. If the ring is made of broken pieces, the meaning is less severe.
What does a ring of Morgana mean?
Ring of Morgana is a term used for the ring of Saturn or any other ring under the fingers. Like most ring lines in palmistry, the ring of Saturn blocks the energy of Saturn, which represents our boundaries, responsibilities, discipline, maturity and seriousness. There are various meanings, depending on the other features. However, because there isn’t a smooth flow from Saturn, a fully formed half-circle represents a feeling of pessimism or distorted reality. They might not feel like they can behave responsibly or take things very seriously. This type of nature often makes itself apparent in career life. These people might not stick to one job or lack true purpose in life.
More meanings of the ring under the middle finger
Someone with a ring of Saturn may also prefer to spend time alone or find social situations uncomfortable. They can be moody, complicated and unrealistic. They are what some refer to as a ‘wet blanket’, dampening the enthusiasm of others. A clean head or heart line helps to balance out some of these negative qualities. If the ring is broken or split in the centre, it helps with open-mindedness.
The meaning varies depending on other indicators
Look at the head and heart line to see which predominates to get clues to the person’s ideas or experiences. Positive markings help counteract the effects, the head and heart lines should be relatively free of flaws with no breaks and not too many branch lines. Ideally, the heart and head line will have a curve (not too short either). The life line should have an even flow without interruptions. A soft hand will also lessen the negative qualities of the ring of Saturn.
A full or partial ring of Saturn
Mostly, the ring does not show entirely complete, but instead, an imperfect one. In that case, it will not be so defective and the meaning is less severe allowing the flow of Saturn’s energy. If the lines look like multiple layers of lines, it is a mark of someone sensitive and moody in their nature. They absorb a lot of energy, often unwanted, but if they can avoid allowing negative energy to affect their psyche, there’s nothing to worry about.
(Case): A fully formed ring can also suggest feelings of imprisonment. In some cases, the person will (actually) be prisoned, such as Ira Marlatt, who has a proper full-formed ring of Saturn (his hand drawing below). Ira was a convicted killer with a violent temper. He also had a partial Girdle of Venus. (See below for more about the girdle of Venus). Considering Ira Marlatts’ nature, his poor head line did not help him to curb it.
The existence of this line can also show someone who jumps from one idea to another and does not stick to one long enough to make it useful. The line cuts off the balancing qualities of Saturn, like wisdom and seriousness. Some indications may help offset any defects. A balanced and well-formed thumb with a good head line is the best backup for a ring of Saturn.
What to do if you have this mark?
It’s not a common mark, but if you happen to have one and now know its meaning, you can take steps to avoid the negative side effects.
- Recognise when you might be feeling overly gloomy or pessimistic and change your thoughts to more positive ones.
- If you are knowingly acting irresponsibly, take action towards more acceptable behaviour. Think before you act.
- Understand that some characteristics are just who you are, and if you prefer to be alone, then take time out to be by yourself. Maybe take on something creative to help release the negative energy in a positive way.
Girdle of Venus
The Girdle of Venus is like an additional heart line in the sense that adds extra sensitivity and intensity to the personality. In some cases where the heart line is absent, such as the Simian line, it takes the place of that line. From a positive perspective, it signifies a compassionate and open-hearted character. It is good if found in the hand of someone in the caring profession because they understand the pain of others. However, it can also indicate an intense state of nervousness and quick temper if aspects of the hand show these qualities elsewhere.
The meaning of a complete Girdle
The line in its full form strengthens whatever characteristics are present in the temperament of the individual. It is a mark of heightened nerves, feelings, and emotions, whether they are positive or negative. If on an artist’s hand, the art would depict emotion well. In most cases, it is only present in sections, and the meaning varies depending on its length, quality, and type of hand which has it. If with a full Girdle on a soft water-type hand, its owner can be tough on the outside, but in fact, they may experience the opposite on the inside. Their feelings are easily hurt, and they are quite receptive to what is going on around them. They can quickly become addicted to stimulants, and sad movies make them cry due to their empathic nature.
When unbroken and deeply etched, it may be a sign of selfishness and irrational or neurotic behaviour, especially if with a weak or broken head line. In the old palmistry, it was called the line of prostitution. In a modern view, flirtatiousness would be appropriate.
