See Zest for Life From Your Venus Mount.
The Venus mount is the ball of the thumb. The padded areas on the hand are named after planets, and the ones located under the fingers have the same name as the finger, except the thumb. If a mount appears to be flat, it can indicate that the person does not put much energy into that part of their life.
A large, well-developed mount would suggest the opposite, where much focus directs to the area. However, as a standard rule, if the hand has large mounts all over, the person has high energy levels with enthusiasm for life. If the palm mostly consists of flat mounts, there is less zest for life.
The mount of Venus
The Venus mount is the padded area enclosed by the line of life. It indicates the ability to express emotions and affection. Symbolising beauty, seduction, romance and love. It also shows the well-being of the individual, demonstrating how much blood flow and energy is available; a flexible, well-rounded mount is ideal, showing someone friendly, fit, sociable, outgoing, sympathetic and affectionate.
You can find music ability from a sharp angle of thumb (angle of Rhythm) and a loop of music on the skin ridge pattern on the lower section of the mount. A flat or flabby mount shows a lack of energy; there may also be physical issues causing tiredness.
A high mount of Venus in a woman’s hand does not tend to extravagance as a Mount of the same strength would in a man’s hand. In a man’s’ hand, a big ball of the thumb, when soft, can give him the qualities a Venusian possesses, like attractiveness, love, sympathy and even generosity.
If it is immense and firm, there is an enormous amount of vitality and potentially high libido. If there is a very full and hard mount of Venus, together with a thumb that has a bulbous tip, and an enlarged inner Mars, indicates a bad temper.
Mount of Moon
This area at the base of the hand, opposite the Mount of Venus is the mount of Moon. It rules your moods, emotions, romance, travel, imagination and reflects the female principle (yin) – the mother, the wife, and fertility. It associates with the subconscious, sensitivity and passions.
In astrology, the moon represents your true inner self. It is a symbol of emotions. A strong moon would depict a need for giving and receiving emotional support. When the moon is developed in a man, it still signifies his sensitivity, (although he might not show it). It can symbolise his mother, his wife, or the ideal woman.
- Imagination and creativity.
- The love of travel.
- Empathy, nurturing and sensitivity.
- Intuition and memory.

The mount of Jupiter beneath the index finger tells how much a person likes to dominate, lead and organise. On a well-marked hand, a large Jupiter mount is an indication of success from a character perspective.
The Jupiter mount shows the self-confidence, pride, ego, religion and the strengths and weaknesses of the character. Jupiter rules your luck, growth and wisdom. They are the most independent of all types in their career. If the Jupiter mount shares the space partially beneath the Saturn finger, there is hands-on ability to achieve goals.
Someone with strong Jupiter aspects is ambitious and love to be in charge. They are fearless determined and have an authoritative charisma so often seen in the hands of politicians. Any position which gives them an opportunity to hold a commanding position suits the Jupiterian type. However, that doesn’t mean they are strictly business because often they care deeply and have a warm heart.
Religion is another strong quality of Jupiter as is the love of food. Their fault can be going too far and going to extremes in all things, so a well-formed head line is to their benefit.
Sometimes these mounts are not found directly below, and in the centre of the finger, this is called a displaced mount. When this occurs, the qualities from one mount share with another. The fingers, which relate to the mounts, share similar qualities, often a well-developed mount also displays a well-developed finger.
Under the ring finger is the mount of Apollo or Sun. When this mount is large, it indicates a desire to be recognised. Positive aspects of Apollo show a versatile, generous, happy and adaptable person. They love to see the beauty in all things. He could be an artist or surround themselves with art. They enjoy luxury and in the practical world good taste in general. Negative aspects point to gambling or paying too much attention to appearances. If the mount of Apollo is displaced towards the mount of Saturn or between the two fingers, the creative side of the personality is significant; often these people have a loop of seriousness.
