In palmistry, there are seven archetypes. Most of us have two or three of these leading archetypes, and likely a little bit of everything else. These archetypes shed light on your core personality traits. They can be manifested positively (high vibration) or negatively (low vibration.)
In palmistry, we determine archetypes by several factors of the palm (mainly focused on dominant hand.) There are also some clues in the size and shape of one’s body.
1. Jupiterians | “Commanders”
Palm: the mount of Jupiter (located under pointer finger) is very large and juicy. The pointer finger may be thicker or longer than usual, especially in proportion to the rest of your fingers.
Body: You may be especially large and tall, thick and muscular, with a high posture. You may also have a large voice and overall dominant presence. Men may be extra hairy but also prone to balding.
Jupiterians are born leaders. They are confident and bossy — large and in charge. Rarely do they ever blend into the background or go unnoticed. Authoritative and extroverted, they often take on leadership roles. They struggle with authority as they do not like being told what to do, they prefer to tell others what to do. They have a great sense of humor and can be very artistic. Socialites and entertainers, they are the life of the party. Usually, they enjoy their drink and smoke, and have a tendency to overdo it. They may also often overeat and overspend. Overall, they do everything on a large scale — they feel things strongly, speak boldly, and radiate dominant energy. Alongside, Jupiterians are extremely wise with a thirst for knowledge. They tend to be very spiritual. There is a great need for them to feel connected to nature. Much of what they do in life feels like “a divine calling” to them. Their weaknesses are excessive pride and sensitivity to criticism. Jupiterians have a high sense of morality and honor and stick up for the underdog.
Career: Politics, activism, legal, education, teaching, life coaching, churches and ministry, acting or singing, food/drink industry.
Health: Sensitive stomachs; prone to goat, fainting spells, and throat/lung issues (may be heavy coughers.)
Romance: Jupiterians are incredibly loyal; they love being married and having a partner who they can be proud of. However, due to their refusal to divorce, some may remain in very unhappy marriages. They are not strongly sexual; they prefer the spiritual and social status aspect of partnership.
High vibration Jupiterians are fair and just leaders that society needs. While they expect a lot out of others, they give back twice as much.
Low vibration Jupiterians are greedy takers who are never satisfied. These are corrupt leaders who we often see in politics. They interrupt, they don’t listen, and they take advantage.
Oprah Winfrey is a Jupiterian with a juicy mount of Jupiter, and it looks like her [Jupiter] pointer finger is longer than her [Apollo] ring finger, which is unusual. Oprah is known for being a talk show host and leading countless other projects. She speaks with a loud and robust voice and does everything on a large scale. Alongside, she is big on spirituality and law of attraction.
2. Saturnians | “Masterminds”
Palm: the palm will be extremely flat with no prevalent mounts. The middle finger may be especially long, possibly many lines on it too. There could be a deep line directly underneath the middle finger. You will also notice the rest of the fingers lean inwards toward the middle finger. The skin is extremely dry, in rare cases yellow.
Body: a very tall, very slender body. Arms or legs may be especially long in proportion to rest of body. Usually a quieter voice.
Saturnians are ultimate masterminds. They have an incredible sense of self-discipline. Extremely smart, they enjoy learning new things. They are very logical and rational, tending to keep their emotions suppressed. These are blunt and matter-of-fact people. They typically avoid drinking and drugs, generally eat healthy or in small proportions. Saturnians value money very highly and will hold onto it or invest it before they spend it. Everything they do is with caution and restriction. Before decision making, they think very thoroughly — they will never do anything by impulse. They are introverts and reserves who keep to themselves. Hard workers, they take life very seriously and can be worrywarts. Lots of nervous tension, it’s difficult for them to relax. They are hermits who strive for a life of solitude and simplicity. Very connected to nature, they have green thumbs and are gifted at finding resources like crystals, gold, and oil. Saturnians actually have a great sense of humor — but it’s very sarcastic, dry, witty, self-deprecating, and satire.
Career: Science, biology, medicine, chemistry, astronomy, computers, teachers (to adults), history, farmers, occult, botanists, writers, researchers, psychology.
Health: May have issues with teeth/gums, skin, veins, bones, liver, hearing. Prone to arthritis, especially in knees, legs, and feet.
Romance: Relationships are not a primary focus and they are less likely to marry. They are restrictive in romance and may struggle with communication. Sex is difficult because they are too much in their heads, unable to relax and let go. In a partnership, they need to be with someone who is reliable and makes them feel secure. They match well with other Saturnians.
High vibration Saturnians are intelligent and interesting people. Their mental strength is vastly impressive. Having also a soft hand and/or prevalent Venus helps soften the cold energy of Saturnians and makes them more positive.
Low vibration Saturnians are possibly the scariest of them all! They can be cold-hearted to the point of sociopathic behavior. These are the psychopaths who kill with absolutely no remorse.
Former president Barack Obama is a Saturnian with very flat hands. All of his fingers lean inwards and there is a slightly yellowish tint. Also, he is tall and slender and speaks with a quiet and restrained voice. He is known for being logical, calm and collected, and never overly emotional. He thinks thoroughly before speaking or acting, never on impulse.
3. Apollonians | “Free Spirits”

The mount line may travel all the way towards the bottom of the palm.

They love the abstract and colorful. Apollonian have really scattered energy and can be all over the place. Struggling to focus on one direction, they often try to do too many things at once and spread themselves too thin. It’s very difficult for them to have self-discipline and self-control. Steady routine bores them — they need variety, change, stimulation, and play. Apollonian speak their minds without fear, but they also need validation behind their beliefs. Alongside, Apollonians have fiery tempers and are quick to anger, but never hold grudges. They adore flattery and attention. Do not underestimate their deep intuition and cleverness! And lastly, they are fascinated by the occult.

High vibration Apollonians are so fun to be with, always bringing a smile to your face. They get along with everyone.
Low vibration Apollonians are narcissists who believe the world revolves around them. They hog the spotlight and can be super obnoxious, flashy, and arrogant.

They are ultimate caregivers who often put the needs of others before themselves. Optimists with positive attitudes, they are often smiling and cheerful, very pleasant to be with.

They are reclusive from society and do not fit in with others, often very eccentric and misunderstood. They have strong intuition and psychic ability. Their imaginations can be so strong that it can blur the line between dreams and reality. Lunarians love to sleep, requiring more sleep than others, but also have a tendency to stay up late at night. Restless souls, they seek change and constantly reinvent themselves — often changing appearance, like hairstyle or wardrobe. They may travel a lot or move to many different homes, as it’s difficult for them to settle down. They indulge themselves in fantasy, spending most of their waking life spacing out and daydreaming.

Singer Ed Sheeran has a prominent Luna — his lyrics show themes of being a romantic idealist, a need to escape from reality, and he is also known for his love of the drink and smoke! He is very pale and has some meat on his bones.
Overview of all archetypes…
As previously mentioned, most of us have more than one archetype — and balance is ideal. For example, a strong Saturn paired with a strong Luna could imply total lack of empathy, but a strong Saturn paired with a strong Venus shows great balance between logic and emotion. For the purpose of this post, I focused mainly on the positive aspect of archetypes, but all of them have their dark sides — as there are both good and bad people in this world who share the same archetypes. Another point is that a lack of an archetype present on the palm can reveal challenges.
Let me know which archetype you relate with most personality-wise, and if it also goes along with your palm or body type. It’s a bit of a struggle for me because my palm shows signs of all seven archetypes! But I would say I am Lunarian for sure, also Mercurian. I think my Venus is pretty prominent, and my Jupiter and Apollo following that. I think I am least Mars and Saturnian.
