Today I'm blogging about thumbs, specifically the Murderer's Thumb, also known as a stub or clubbed thumb. Have a look at Megan Fox's version to the right!
The thumb is the most important finger to read in palmistry because it shows our level of willpower, decisiveness and independence.
A normal thumb usually reaches at least halfway up the first section of the forefinger, see pic below. This denotes an average ability to set and achieve goals on your own. Any shorter than this and you may be more of a free spirit who either doesn't care about the normal status symbols in life or prefers to work in a team to get things done. Any longer than this and you tend to run your own life (as well as the lives of those around you!).
I believe that the thumb shows your past life strengths which you have brought into this body (although I'm still collecting information on this).
Someone with a long, stiff thumb that doesn't bend backwards at the tip does best in a culture that values personal achievement and stubbornness. If they say they will do something, they will, come hell or high water. And they hate when plans are changed at the last minute, it gives them a stiff neck! :D They are time-conscious and succeed best in countries like Australia and the US.
Someone with a shorter, bendy, hitchhiker's thumb, especially one which 'waists' in the middle like an hourglass does best to a culture where cooperation and modesty is more important. They may say one thing and do another to keep the peace. If you have this thumb you may love going to places like Thailand or Bali where there is a slower pace.
So what does it mean when your thumb is like Megan Fox's and clubs at the tip? Well it depends on what HAND it appears on. Your writing hand shows what you have become, especially if you are over the age of 20. Your non-writing hand shows what you were, and what you revert to under pressure.
The tip of your thumb shows your temper - a bulging or clubbed tip here suggests that you bottle up your feelings like a cork in a champagne bottle...have you ever noticed that if you only partly open a bottle eventually the fizz pops the cork out! This is where the term Murderer's Thumb comes from...it's possible that you are type of person who can lose your temper in a big way, but not often.
Conversely, a thin, flat thumb tip shows you are nervous and not pushy, you prefer to avoid confrontation at all costs.
Megan Fox has been quoted on Wikipedia as saying she had a strict religious upbringing. After her parents got divorced she was an aggressive child who got bullied a lot. These traits are typical of someone who has been taught to suppress their emotions and 'act nicely'.
I find this sad because over the years I've learned that emotion = 'energy in motion', i.e. it's better to teach children to express feelings so that they can stay at full power and presence in a situation....holding onto anger is like drinking poison expecting your enemy to die, as they say.
The reason for today's topic was that I read for a woman yesterday with a clubbed thumb on her non-writing hand and a normal thumb on her writing hand. She agreed that as a child she had difficulty expressing her frustration but fortunately she had overcome most of this trait and interestingly none of her children had clubbed thumbs.
I found this exciting because the club thumb is genetically inherited and usually expresses in women more than men. A female child will usually develop a club thumb if her mother has one. So it's possible that through positive living this woman had changed her DNA and therefore the destinies of her children, although we can't know for sure as it is a recessive gene which can skip generations (sigh!)
SO If you have a clubbed thumb I encourage you to go online and look yourself up. There are specific forums about clubbed thumbs linking them to anything from royal heritage, to being French, to having bipolar disorder...it's always good to research what your body may be trying to tell you. Many successful people have clubbed thumbs, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. Celebrate your awesomeness!
