One of the most fascinating things about hands is just how precise this language is. For example, why do scars, wounds and cuts show up on the fingers or on the palm exactly where they do? If you study it awhile you won’t be able to dispute it – cuts and other marking always show up in the place that refers exactly to what is going on in your life at the time. Why this happens is one of the world’s greatest mysteries.
Here’s an example from my own life of how this works, how to interpret injuries to your fingers plus a chart to help you figure out exactly what your own cuts, wounds or scars on your fingers mean.
Last December I took some cake around to a friend and then felt like a real heel because she had a present for me and all I had was the cake.
I hammered myself for making such a blunder and found myself wanting in both generosity and forethought. An hour or so later, I promptly cut myself while searching for something in the glove compartment of my car. It was a rather deep gash on my right middle (Saturn) finger and the wounding made me conscious of this finger for at least a week while it healed. I couldn’t type properly or use two fingers to scroll down on a touchpad. Still I had to laugh. It came as no surprise that it was this finger that was cut and no other.
What does the right middle finger represent?
Your perception of how other people value you, or what you are worth. Your value out in the world.
That’s exactly what the issue was that I was hammering myself over. I felt value-less.
The wound jolted me out of my extreme judgment of myself. And, even though the wound was physically painful, it saved me days of emotional pain and reconnected me with wonder and awe of just how precise the language of hands is.
What do cuts or wounds on each finger mean?
Think of the wound as similar to the LifePrints fingerprint interpretation of “Life Lesson” except it is a temporary situation rather than lifelong exploration.
The way to interpret the meaning of an injury is to look up the meaning of the finger on which it occurs.
For example, right hand relates to issues out in the world. Left hand has a more inner world significance.
Right index (Jupiter finger) is about power issues, left index is about inner power (boundaries, or not knowing what you want.)
Right middle (Saturn) is all about value out in the world. Left middle finger (Saturn) is about inner value or self worth.
Right ring finger (Apollo) is about creativity and being seen/showing up
Left Apollo is about being unique or different/reputation fears.
Right pinkie (Mercury) is about communication and left pinkie about inner communication/intimate relationships.
Look at where the wound is – which finger – this is probably what the issue relates to.
I think the wound happens to remind you to pay attention to what thoughts you are entertaining instead of being fully present.
Similarly in the palm itself, we look at what zone the wound is in.
