The Fingers


Each finger reveals different aspects as follows:

  • Index Finger – Ambition/Career – Ego
  • Middle Finger – The Mind/Money – Super Ego
  • Ring Finger – Emotions – Personna
  • Baby Finger – Communications/Spirituality – Id/Libido
  • The Thumb – Willpower and Control


The length of the fingers shows the individual’s patience and ability to carry out tedious tasks. Short fingers are found on people with grandiose dreams, but not the patience to complete the tasks required. Long fingers show a love of detail, but often to the exclusion of the “Big Picture”.

Also important to note is the length of the fingers in relation to one another. The first comparison to make is the length of the index to ring finger. If the index finger is noticeably longer than the ring finger, this indicates that the subject has a “Me First” attitude, and is a natural leader.

With the ring finger at least a quarter inch longer than the index, these are the technicians. Able to understand both people and machines, these subjects will not take the lead unless they must, being content to be the power behind the throne.

For the baby finger, we look to how low-set the base is. The normal placement is approximately a quarter inch below the level of the other fingers. This shows a normal degree of self-confidence. With the base of the baby finger more than a quarter inch below, the person had a very insecure childhood, with the lack of confidence carrying on through to adult life. In the case of the high-set finger, this indicates a confident and secure childhood, again carrying on to adulthood.


A straight finger shows straightforward views and actions pertaining to the aspects of that finger. Any twisting or bending tells that the views and actions of that aspect have been consciously altered. When one finger leans into another, the aspects of the bent finger have not followed a “normal” course. The aspects of the straight finger support the leaning one.

Spaces Between Fingers

The amount of space between the fingers also tells us much about the subject.

A large space between the thumb and the hand shows a strong-willed individual. When the thumb falls inside the hand, the will is broken. Compare the left and right hands to see if this is an accustomed feeling or a new experience.

Between the index and middle fingers, a large space tells of a person whose actions will be different from others. Their Ego and ambitions do not need to rely on hard facts.

The space between the middle and ring fingers shows the logic, common sense, and planning for the future. A wide space indicates little concern for the future and for monetary issues, while a narrow space tells of a preoccupation with finances and logical planning.

When the baby finger is widely separated from the hand, the subject thinks in a way uniquely their own (way out in “left field”). A narrow space shows thoughts which conform to the “normal”.

The Thumb

The thumbs reveal the sense of self, and the ways in which we control ourselves and our environment. The keyword for the thumb is “Control”.

The tip segment of the thumb, or First Phalanx, shows the strength of will and how it is used. The longer and wider this phalanx, the more domineering the individual. (Control of others).

The middle segment, or Second Phalanx, reveals the logic and cognitive ability. This segment is considered developed when it has a “waisted” appearance, narrow in the middle. A developed middle segment shows a well developed mind. (Control of thoughts).

The Third Segment is found within the Mount of Venus. It is not a Phalanx, but is in fact the First Metacarpal. This segment shows how the individual uses (or denies) their lusts and passions. (Control of desire).


Knuckles are either smooth or knotted. Smooth knuckles indicates that the mind shifts easily from one topic to another. Knotted knuckled individuals cannot easily stop thinking about any unfinished project or idea, and love adding detail to their work. Knotted knuckles will tend to finish every project, while smooth knuckles will not.

The color of the nails and the size of the small “moons” on each nail identify the quality of the blood circulation and oxygen level of the bloodstream.

As the “moons” disappear, the circulation has become weaker.

Any color other than pink usually signifies a problem from toxins in the blood.

Reading the Fingernails

One of the many things our fingernails reveal is the state of our Nervous System. As our efficiency at dealing with stress deteriorates, the nails will follow this progression:

  1. Smooth
  2. White Spots
  3. Coarse
  4. Fluted (vertical ridges)
  5. Turned back at tip (dish-shaped)
  6. Cross Trenches (horizontal pits, holes, or trenches)
  7. Brittle

Among the 10 nails, most people have conditions from two different categories, showing a transition stage between the conditions indicated. Once you have found the category(ies), check the interpretations below.

The methods of dealing with stress are so effective that health actually improves with each new change.

Insufficient time has been taken to recover from previous stresses, and the Nervous System is showing its first warning signs.

The stresses in life have become more frequent and harder to deal with. Mineral deficiencies are present.

The pattern of denial has become a habit, and life has turned into a constant series of aggravations and traumas. Neglecting the need for recovery at this stage will result in debility from severe illnesses or accidents.

Illnesses caused by stress and worry have become common. At this stage, spinal weakness becomes a problem.

A state of dis-ease has become normal. Cross trenches are often brought on by the death of a loved one.

The body has been abused to the point where it has begun systematically shutting down.
