Your Fingers and the Planets
“Jupiter (Index Finger)
Leadership, Executive Ability, Self-Esteem, Ambition for Power, Money, Spiritual/Religious Authority
Stone: Amethyst Lapis Lazuli Blue Topaz
In the Jupiter finger we focus on the most outer aspects of life, our relationships with others and the power sharing balance that takes place there. Any emphasis on the finger of Jupiter will tend to bring out the qualities of leadership, executive ability, ambition, and self-confidence. The Jupiterian personality is strongly driven and find themselves placed in executive roles often in spite of themselves. This is also the place to find the energy for material and financial motivation and gain.
Saturn (Middle Finger) Responsibility, the Law both Universal and Human, Justice, Sense of Right and Wrong Stone: Rose Quartz, Coral
Stones that feel soft, soothing. Saturn has been called “the balance wheel” of the hand or the personality. It is here that we find the qualities relating to universal and human law and justice and our relationship to them. To emphasize the role of Saturn is to emphasize the sense of what is right and wrong, what is proper in any given situation. Other qualities related to Saturn are a certain tendency toward introspection. Saturn in its extreme can develop into a tendency to secretiveness. Saturn carried too far tends to be weighty, heavy and sad. My own palmistry teacher used to say that “everybody has more than enough of the qualities of Saturn.”
It would be rare that a person would want to bring greater emphasis to this particular aspect.
Apollo (Ring Finger)
Love of Beauty, Creativity, Expression of self, Relationship with Others
Stone : Jade, Turquoise, Moonstone, Amethyst
Apollo is called the “ring finger” for good reason. Its qualities are some of those which are best emphasized and which most benefit from the the wearing of a ring to emphasize those qualities. Apollo represents, above all, creativity. It is creativity in artistic expression, in craftsmanship, indeed creativity in every endeavor of life. Apollo is the cultivation of the love of beauty in all its forms but especially of the natural world. Apollo represents the “tree-hugger” in all of us. Apollo is that energy within each of us which gives rise to expression of self on every level It is supportive of all other energy and lends them grace, beauty and compassion.
Mercury (Small Finger)
Intuition, Communication, Quick Intelligence
Stone : Amber Moonstone Citrine
Mercury is the energy of communication. Think of Mercury as your antenna both receiving and transmitting. Mercury is your communication skills not just verbally but in every way. Receptively, Mercury is your intuition, way you receive all information, all data, and with what sensitivity you receive that data. Strong Mercury skill manifest as what we see in our times as bright intelligence. Easily carried away with itself, Mercury can turn into the con artist quite easily and this not only towards others but towards one’s self. Be wary of what filters you might want to place on these important functions. Picture the giant diamond sparkler on the hand of the Mafioso.
Thumb The Will, Personal and Universal. Self-Assertion
Stone : Garnet Carnelian Ruby
The thumb is the only finger not named for one of the Greek gods. It’s just the thumb, but it is all-important because it represents the quality of will, both personal and universal. We all need this quality but the thumb is so emphasized in the hand by the very nature of our anatomy that it would be unusual for a person to need to emphasize the quality of will except on a fairly temporary basis. Be careful of wearing rings here and be attentive to any changes that occur in the time you are wearing such a ring”.
