Associated with the Greek God Apollo, the ring finger represents the basic human desire for beauty and aesthetic harmony. This finger is characteristic of art
, fame and harmony. In palmistry
, there are various factors taken into account while giving a fortune reading. The position, size and length of the ring finger and by comparing it with the other fingers
, one can determine the characteristics of the concerned individual.
Mount of Ring Finger
In Hindi language, the ring finger is known as Anamika, whereas at the base of it, the mount of Sun is situated. As per the Greek mythology, Apollo used to be the Sun God
and in astrology
, the base of the ring finger is also called the Mount of Apollo
. If the mount is well developed, the person is warm and optimistic, radiating enthusiasm. Whereas, if the mount is flat, the individual is cold and cynical, lacking appreciation of the finer things in life. And if it is overdeveloped, the person is brash, insensitive, and slightly narcissistic.
Comparing Ring Finger to the Other Fingers
In palmistry, there is a general rule that dictates that any finger, which is set below the others, loses some of its power. So, when the ring finger is set below the middle finger, also known as the finger of Saturn, all the qualities that the ring finger encapsulates will be prevented by circumstance before these qualities fully cultivates. This is because the middle finger is the finger of circumstance.
Similarly, if the size of the ring finger is same as that of the middle finger, then the person has a creative flair and is usually a talented actor and musician
. It is said a very long ring finger, which is almost equal to the middle finger in length shows a tendency to take risks. Majority of the people with a long ring finger have a tendency of risking their assets and career. A ring finger that is extremely long acts as the mark of a reckless gambler. On the contrary, if the ring finger is shorter in size, then the person tends to be more down to earth and humble.
More information can be obtained by reading the gaps that exist between the bases of the fingers. For example: If there is a wide gap between the ring and middle fingers, then the person is said to have an easy going attitude towards life. And a significant gap between the pinky and ring finger represents Bohemianism, which means independence in action.
If the tip of the ring finger is wide, then the person is musical. But if it has a thick pad underneath, the person is excellent in craft work and pottery
, gardening, sewing, cooking
, and other similar delicate works. A ring finger with the same length as the index finger
shows a desire for wealth and recognition through artistic means.
Other ways of observing the ring finger is by looking at the inclination of the finger, if it is more inclined towards the middle finger, then the person shows morbid vanity. On the other hand, inclination towards the pinky is an indication of the persons full reliance on art for income.
