The Meaning of the Five Fingers
Based on my research, "finger" can mean any of the four digits besides the thumb OR it can also mean any digit including the thumb. Since it is up to me to decide whether the thumb is a finger or not, I will consider the thumb to be a finger for the purpose of this article.
The control of the thumb occupies a huge part of our brain; therefore the thumb is extremely important to our personality. It relates to self-control and will power. For instance, a woman with a long thumb – in comparison with the rest of her hand – will control her environment and take charge of her life, but if her thumb is short, her environment will control her and she will often feel overwhelmed.
Next we have the index finger or Jupiter finger. Jupiter stands for guidance and ambition. This is the finger that shows the direction our life is taking and our sense of purpose. A short Jupiter finger may reveal a lack of purpose or a feeling of inadequacy in social settings, while a very long one could show that we identify too much with the role we play in society.
The ring finger, or Sun finger, allows us to shine and share. It is the finger of passion, courage and charisma. When it is short, we lack passion and may feel shy or insecure. When the Sun finger is particularly long, we will do anything to attract attention and may use our charisma to manipulate others.
While being a very simplified explanation of the role of each finger, this article will hopefully give you enough insights to understand yourself and others when you look at your five fingers.
