Today I'm writing on one of my favourite palmistry topics - the Composite Whorl Fingerprint (see left).
In palmistry, fingerprints represent the fixed parts of our personality, including our innate strengths and challenges.
Some palmreaders work solely with your fingerprints (see Richard Unger's book Lifeprints), however I like to use them in conjunction with other palmistry aspects, as well as face reading and numerology.
The Composite Whorl is considered a fairly rare print - it is usually seen on the thumb/s if at all, as well as on the index finger. I recently read a palmistry textbook where the author said he had only seen a handful of people with these prints, whereas around 10-15% of my clients have them (as do I).
This just goes to show that psychic readers attract clients who are like them - the people we see are not necessarily a perfect cross-section of society.
The S-shaped nature of the Composite Whorl gives its bearer the following characteristics, and this is especially the case if the print appears on one or both thumbs*.
*The thumbprints give an overall picture of our personality, whereas other fingers cover aspects of our nature (e.g. forefinger is our way of thinking and career).
Pros of a Composite Whorl fingerprint
-Dual minded (often with prominent 11s or other unusual numerology in their date of birth and name).
-Good at counselling, facilitating, arbitrating and making fair decisions for other people.
-Have a natural connection with other dimensions and space travel/ beings (also known as star people).
-Drawn to occupations where justice and objectivity are important.
-Third eye chakra is more open than average, meaning they can see life after death and the connections between chance events.
-Deep interest in spirituality, especially Buddhism or Eastern religions.
-Know there is more to life than material success - this is because the print looks like a Yin Yang symbol (see right), which represents true understanding of the Universe (i.e. that good and bad only exist in our minds).
Cons of a Composite Whorl fingerprint
-Because they can always see both sides of an issue, they may procrastinate on important decisions in their personal life (such as changing jobs, relationships or health habits). It's crucial for them to develop bulletproof faith in their intuition as otherwise their mind will destroy them. Studying spiritual law will help a lot!
-Split personality can be an issue, for example being one way in a certain environment and the complete opposite at home.
-Some palmists link this print to schizophrenia or manic depression however I would caution against rushing to conclusions. This print is associated with very high psychic ability and too often in history great visionaries have been medicated or imprisoned simply because of their gifts.
-In most palmistry textbooks the Composite Whorl is considered an unfortunate fingerprint because of its link to indecision.
Speaking from personal and client experience, I know this is a handicap that can be overcome. I have read the hands of many successful entrepreneurs, musicians and celebrities with these prints, in many cases they were late bloomers who had to learn to trust themselves 100%.
Johnny FIncham wrote some helpful advice for Composite Whorl people, which was - if you are 60% sure about something, that is enough. I interpret this to mean take action based on your best guess and get the feedback rather than sitting on the fence.
I hope this article has helped you to understand more about the beauty of your fingerprints.
