Most hands have a mix of the elements of earth, fire, water, and air. On top of that, the fingertips are often not all the same either. The length of the fingers, shape of palm and fingertips, we can put together an overall summary of the character.


If a person has a water hand, that is a long and narrow palm with average/long fingers combined with distinctly protruding knuckles; it shows a sensitive, yet analytical person. They tend to be slow thinking, and do not like to rush into anything, preferring to take their time in implementing any ideas they have.


The water hand with smooth fingers shows a slow thinking and gentle nature. They are quick to grasp an idea than one with knotted fingers, and their love for detail shows in the preciseness of their work or creative endeavours.


People with an air hand (square palm and long knotted fingers) have a plodding and analytical mind and tend to look for order and technique in what they do. The square palm gives them practical and down to earth qualities.


The square palm and long fingers of the air hand shape coupled with spatulate fingertips reveals a technically creative intellectual. They can be very original and inventive. The hand in the picture above belongs to a digital music technician who composes original works.


If with pointed fingertips on an earth hand, it is not the best combination of to have. It does depict someone who is down to earth, but the practical side is weakened by the pointed tips, if, with smooth fingers, it shows potential artistic talent. They are rather impressionable and impulsive in their actions. Psychologically, they may suffer from a lack of self-control and willpower.


The earth hand with rounded fingertips and smooth fingers denotes someone inspirational, creative, quick thinking, intuitive and spontaneous. However, they can be very impulsive in their actions, which reduces sound qualities.


The square fingertips on the earth hand accentuate the mental qualities. They like to take the lead and set an excellent example for others. They are reliable, sensible, punctual, and want to have everything systematically arranged in the right place. They frequently have a love of history, science, and math. If they have artistic skills or taste, it is probably in the form of sculpture.


A fire hand together with spatulate fingertips suggests someone with a lot of enthusiasm. They have a sense of adventure; the spatulate tips accentuate the energy levels or obsessive qualities.
