In Palmistry, the mounts, or bumps of flesh, on the palm play a very important role during a reading. They are related to the influences of the planets, which also tell us a lot about our physical and emotional makeup. There are seven mounts on the palms, and they are synonymous with the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. There is also a relationship to the other major and minor lines in the hand, for example, where the mounts may intersect with those lines. These mounts may be well developed and normally elevated, overly developed or flat and difficult to decipher. A mount that is normally elevated may indicate a well-balanced approach to life in relationship to the planet it represents. Flat mounts can signify an absence of the traits that correspond with the planet it represents. And finally, extremely raised or overly enlarged mounts may suggest an excess or exaggeration of a mount’s characteristics. Also keep in mind that there are many markings — chains, triangles, stars and grille marks — within the mounts that may vary the qualities that are associated with them.
