So you are wondering what might be the signs of a gambler as far as palmistry is concerned? When I think about a gambler, I think about someone who takes risks (but not necessarily calculated ones). I also consider their ability to handle money. For example, a smart businessman might take a gamble, but he thinks about the risk factors and decides how to avoid losing money.
But, a gambler is not necessarily one who speculates and punts. A gambler is anyone who takes risks in life.
In order to learn about the signs of a gambler, you need to understand what shows the opposite, that is a sensible and cautious personality. The signs to look for mainly comes from the index finger, thumb and shape of the hand.
The index finger (Jupiter)
A straight index finger indicates a sensible person. Only if the finger leans out toward the thumb, it shows a love of adventure and its owner might enjoy taking a chance. If the index finger leans toward the middle finger, it suggests a cautious personality. The type is not so much likely to gamble with finances.
Shape of the hand
The shape of the hand on a sensible type is the square (earth hand), or air hand. The earth hand looks balanced overall, not overly narrow or out of proportion. The air type has a square palm with longer fingers depicting the thinking types. If the thumb is naturally held close to the hand, the person will be more cautious.
Signs of a gambler from the fingers and thumb
A short middle finger shows potential irresponsibility in financial matters, but on its own doesn’t depict a gambler. A long ring finger is the main sign of a gambler, especially if it’s thick or over-developed. If also with wide gaps between all the fingers, money tends to slip right through their fingers so to speak. They love their freedom to do whatever they like, so they are the types who tend to lose if they gamble.
A solid thumb can offset these qualities. However, if the thumb is naturally held on a wide-angle away from the hand, it shows a more adventurous and reckless nature.
If the hand shape is the fire type, that is a rectangle or large palm with shorter fingers, they are the ones most likely to gamble. From the fingertips and fingerprints, the gambler might have rounded fingertips with loop prints except for the ring finger. If there is a whorl on the ring finger, it is showing someone a little more likely to gamble.
Signs from the lines on the palm
A gambler or risk taker is likely to have a separated life line from the head line. The head line might also be broken or hardly visible. The heart line depicts how passionate someone is, so a gambler will have a curved line that reaches between the index and middle fingers. A simian line also shows a passionate nature, therefore indicates a risk-taker. Because of the obsessive nature of the Simian line, they might be the compulsive gambler.
Balancing features from the hand
Long middle phalanges on the fingers show managerial and business skills and can offset other signs. A long or well-developed thumb shows the ability to calculate the odds and curb risks. Square fingertips or fingernails depict a practical type and whorl fingerprints on the thumbs and middle fingers enhance the professional qualities.
Signs of Luck
If you like to gamble, and want to know if you have luck on your side, out of all the specific marks on the palm, the star is one that most represents good luck and fortune. The most favourable position to have a star is on the Jupiter mount, beneath the index finger. It shows someone who has reached a position of power and prestige.
More About Star marks
A star mark on the Apollo mount beneath the ring finger, reveals talents that can bring its owner fortune. Famous actors often have this mark, but so do notorious criminals, so beware. A star on the Apollo line shows a specific event of luck, such as a sudden windfall. If the line continues after the star, it suggests that the blessing brings happiness as well.
The Money Triangle
The money triangle is a line that rises from the fate line to the head line and shows money through a business idea or the career. Be careful, however, don’t mistake this triangle with other lines. Sometimes a stress line crossing at this point makes it look like the money triangle.
A perfectly formed small triangle on the line of life shows a boost in finances, whether through inheritance or something else.
The Fish Symbol
If the fish sign is at the end of the life line on the dominant hand, it ensures significant fortune, luck or spirituality during life. At the beginning of the life line, it shows much potential and an intelligent child. In the middle of the life line it depicts struggle, but a profoundly spiritual being who tends to care much for others. You can read the complete article about the fish sign here.
