Reading and analysis of Mounts are very important for the location of vocations. The Mounts reveal the habits of the subject and indicate factors which govern the subject and

mould his life. So first of all, it should be borne in mind that an individual is dominated not by one Mount. There is a ruling Mount and its apex and a secondary Mount which are to be fixed carefully.

Multi-ethnic group portraitThe Three Worlds: The three worlds are judged f rom the phalanges of Fingers. The first phalange indicates the mental world, the second the practical world and the third the material world, as shown in Fig. 1. These will indicate in which world the qualities of the Mount will operate predominantly. If the first phalange be longest on a Finger which is also the longest Finger, the qualities of the mental world will predominate. Such a vocation should be considered in which mental qualities of that type are valued and required. But when the second phalange is found longest, the subject is best suited for a vocation where the practical or business type can be utilised. In case the third phalange is found well developed, the subject should be placed in the more ordinary occupation of the type where much mental development is not required.

Fingers: Fingers are to be judged carefully to locate the leading Mounts. Fingers can be long short, knotty, etc. and of square, spatulate, conic or pointed tips.

1. A spatulate tipped Finger of a Mount will be stronger than other tips.

2. Square, conic and pointed tips will be next in this order.
