Nearly 25 % of hands have a loop in the moon.
A type of “fingerprint” pattern in the lower outer area of the palm, away from the thumb side of the hand.
This part of your palm is called the “moon”.
(If you try to touch your hand with your thumb you’ll see that this is the one part of your hand your thumb can’t reach.)
What does this marker mean?
This depends on what other fingerprint patterns you have, or whether you have other dermatoglyphic patterns elsewhere on your palm. It also depends on what this marker looks like. Does it dominate the palm?
According to Richard Unger, author of LifePrints, decoding your life purpose from your fingerprints, a moon whorl or a moon peacock means “spiritual teacher” but this doesn’t always apply to a moon loop. The interpretation of a moon loop depends on several other factors. For example, whether or not there are whorls or peacocks on other fingers.
I decided to clear this up for fellow hand analysts once and for all by asking Richard Unger his opinion during our advanced threading class last Tuesday.
When should one include a moon loop as part of the purpose and when not?
Here is a recording of our discussion:
This snippet is only a few minutes long but I’m sure you’ll find it really useful if you have a moon loop or if you are a hand analyst. A close up of the hand we were discussing during this conversation is above.
Often there is far more significant information in the fingerprints which you can then combine with personality markers to get a more accurate assessment of a person’s purpose.
For example, in the hand print above, there is an inspirational talent line. (Curved line just below ring finger). Combine that with the whorl on the Apollo finger (the artist/individualist)…
If you would like to see what a full moon whorl looks like plus what this means here’s a post on moon whorls from a few years ago.
