We have already discussed some aspects of planets along with other topics and their relative impacts etc. But these Mounts of different planets also have separate significance. We shall now discuss in detail.
The mounts of different planets indicate more of a person's nature and mentality than lines on a palm because without considering these Mounts, one cannot accurately predict the impact of lines on one's palm. In order to predict anything one has to consider the Mounts along with lines, although a line could be very good, strong if the planet itself is not well disposed it will unfortunately not give desired results and would infact give opposite, evil effects. Hence, Mounts are of special significance. The illustration of the hand is given indicating the different Mounts.
The way to determine the mounts under fingers is by seeing the structure of the skin beneath the phalanges. This mark/sign is seen in between the 4 fingers. The fine lines are considered as middle points and area around them is denoted as specific mounts. These mounts are usually below the fingers which id the natural place. Sometimes one can even see inclination of some mounts towards other planetary mounts. In such cases this specific planetary energy enhances other planetary energy and effect.
The height of the Mount is directly proportional to its effect and strength. If the mount is flat it reduces the effect of the specific planet. If a planet is weak and it is crossed over by another line and if the respective finger is longer, the planets become very strong and its effect double.
THE MOUNT OF JUPITER
The mount of Jupiter denotes leadership qualities, ego, ambition and desire for prestige and honour. If the mount of Jupiter is well developed one can see all these qualities. If this mount is not developed and is flat, one does not have respect for parents and teachers and lack spiritual inclination. If this mount is neither flat nor well developed, such a person will have spiritual interest, has love for nature, and is a sycophant and is fond of material pleasure and ostentatious living.
If the mount of Jupiter is well developed and if the Jupiter finger is pointed then that person is superstitious. If there is a square on the mount then it indicates cruelty of nature. If the fingers are long , slender and not knotted and if the mount is very much developed, then such a person is fond of pleasures, is a spendthrift and is fond of relaxation.
If there are 2-3 lines on the mount of Jupiter, they help in the accomplishment of ambitions of that particular person. Such a person is always financially well off. If there is more effect of Jupiter on a person and if the first phalange of the index finger is long, such a person is often successful in his political, spiritual and intellectual spheres of life.
SHANI (SATURN) MOUNT
The mount of Saturn is placed below the middle finger. Usually the mount of Saturn remains undeveloped and is often flat. But if the middle finger is of average length, then one should consider average effects of the planet Saturn. If the middle finger is long then the effect of Saturn is more. If the length of the middle finger is equal to the length of the index finger or little finger then the effect of the planet Saturn is weakest.
If the planet Saturn is in normal position and if the middle finger is also of average length then the person will be of a balance nature and is just. Such a person will maintain balance of nature in happiness and misery and will be neither a friend an enemy in material life.

There are 2 mounts of Mars. They are known as Aggressive Mars and the other is Protective Mars. This planet is not associated to any specific finger.
The general characteristics of Mars are bravery, valiance, strength, war and power. These are all associated to the second type of Mars.

If this mount is flat and is not at all well developed then the person becomes a coward.
The first Mars (aggressive) is below the Mount of Mercury and is above the Mount of the Moon (Apollo). This makes a person diplomatic, prudent and also courageous and confident. These qualities can only be seen if the Mount of Mars is well developed. If it is well developed then the person becomes efficient in defending himself, becomes courageous and has total control over his senses. If the Mount of Mars is over developed then such a person may suffer from blood pressure, unconsciousness, skin diseases, blood problems etc.
THE MOUNT OF MOON
The Mount of Moon is placed just above the wrist on both the palms. This is situated just below the Mount of protective Mars and above the wrist. This mount denotes one's imaginative powers, aesthetics, poetic skills, and gift of speech, communicative skills and interest in humour, thought and contemplation skills.
This mount has been divided into 3 parts for study purpose. The upper part/portion (Upper Moon) near the protective Mars, middle portion (Middle Moon) and the lower portion just besides the wrist (Lower Moon)
If the entire Mount of Moon is well developed and is normal then one can see all the above qualities well placed in a human being. If this Mount is over developed then this Mount looks roundish. In this case, a person is very imaginative, a poet and becomes panicky. Along with this if the Mount of Venus is equally developed then he will be licentious and will have love for sexual pleasures/sensual pleasures.

Along with this if the Mount of Mercury is well developed and if the third phalange of the little finger is long and thick, then such a person has uncontrolled sexual passions and will do anything to satisfy himself.
Development of Venus along with aggressive Mars denotes violent nature in sexual passion. If both the portions are well developed and if the thumb is long and if the Headline is long then such a person is virtuous, does not tread on the wrong path. If the thumb is small and if the first phalange is big, then one can see all evil qualities in this type of person.

Such a person is not licentious but on the contrary has suppressed emotions related to sex in the mind. If both these Mounts are balanced then the mental state is also normal and average. Such a person is physically weak and lacks imaginative powers.
