THE MOST CHALLENGING HAND: Simian Lines, Murderer’s Thumbs & Radial loops
Michael has a double Simian line, two ‘Murderers’ thumbs and two Radial Loops. Through spending a day with him and his partner, I learned about how he had used these features incredibly well and successfully in his life. Let’s break this down.
The two Simian lines means the fusion of the Head and Heart lines. This makes the bearer incredibly intense, restless, relentless, focused, competitive, repressed and compulsive. Michael explained he used to be a drug addict and with two Simian lines (+ grainy skin + murderer’s thumbs!) there are absolutely no half measures, so one can assume this period would have been the end of most people. Having two Murderer’s Thumbs really does amplify the intensity of the Simians even more. A murderer’s thumbs is when the top phalange is clubbed. This gives the person an explosive nature and makes them very impulsive due to the top phalange showing the nature of will power. It has been named a murderer’s thumb as supposedly someone with it would be more likely to fly off the handle and kill in a fit of rage.
This means that there would be even more inner tension and conflict within Michael. Part of him is already very repressed and dealing with the power of two Simian lines. Now there is the explosive, impulsive expression of the murderer’s thumb to try and deal with as well! The grainy/fire skin type puts him in the action orientated, abrasive world where there can certainly be a lack of sensitivity. Back then, you would not like to get on the wrong side of Michael!
Unfortunately, Michael’s two Radial Loop prints (on each Index finger) are not going to make this any easier. Radial loops on grainy/fire skin make the bearer very defensive and difficult. They feel like everyone is bossing them around and they hate being told what to do. This is because internally they are actually very suggestible and affected by other people’s thinking, opinions and actions. This affects the esteem and confidence of them. In an attempt to try and resist this internal battle they are very resistant and abrasive towards others, as they feel people have constant power over them. Malcolm X had these prints plus grainy skin. He did not like being told what to do – though was very influenced by the right person (and converted to Islam). Michael also has a Short Index finger adding even more to the inferiority complex!
He channelled all this energy into self-discovery and mastery. He moved to Varanasadusi, the holy city of India to find Sadhus (holy men) to train with. Of course, there are no half measures and Michael would look for the most capable teachers, the wisest gurus and the best yogic system, which is what he did. For 3 years he lived with the Sadus who trained him in yoga, philosophy and meditation. During this time he, of course, taught himself Hindi and to read and write Sanskrit. He also learned Vedic palmistry which is how we initially bonded.
Having two Simians and Murderer’s Thumbs is incredibly difficult to deal with. But Michael found how to turn them into an advantage. He says himself that having clubbed thumbs in a spiritual sense is seen as an advantage and the same with the Simian lines. This makes sense given the intensity of these features and the power they have when focused.
This is the most positive way in which someone can use these hands. The Radial Loops and Short Index are naturally caring and giving when they work on their own self-worth first. The Simian lines must find ways of finding peace and relaxation. And the Murderer’s Thumbs must find control over their temper and impulses. Michael embodies all of these features and his way of life is a credit to everything he has overcome and accomplished.
I love this.. thank you
So true. How to overcome challenges and make than your gifts ?? the true essence of life
Thanks Nitzan, well said!
As I have seen in this article and also compared my hands with this fact of having a similar hand by saying similar, I have simian lines in both my hand and I am ambidextrous but majority holds on my right hand but really cant say.
Hence would love to know more about these lines that I posses.
Also honestly very confused at this part of information on the very context of having a simian line or not.
Love to hear from you.
Yours dearly Haren.
Thank you for your message. A simian line tends to be such an intense feature that it permeates everywhere, regardless of whether it is on the right or left hand of a right or left handed person. Your hands certainly sound very interesting, but I can’t say much more without seeing them!
Please get in touch with me via the contact page if you would like a reading or to send me some photos.
Very well written!
Wow I found this absolutely fascinating!! I am also studying Chirology at the moment and your website is my favorite place to go when wanting more insight.
Love your work!!
Thanks, I am glad you like my work!
Excellent insight on how the these intense (and overwhelmingly negatively portrayed) traits/energies can be can be harnessed to improve and develop oneself. Use what God gave you!
I have simian line on both hand it means
It means that you are very intense and having an outlet for your zeal is vital!
How use the power of double simian line I am from India
There is no short answer to this question. If you would like a consultation to discuss this please get in touch
I have a Simian crease and Murderers Thumb on my right hand. No one seems to give any credence to the fact that I seem to think a bit differently to the majority, I’d love to know what it means for me. I’m 57, female and Caucasian.
Do you know who invented this interpretation for the ‘Murderer’s Thumb’ and where it came from ?
When was that ?
Also, do you know who first discovered the significance of the radial loop fingerprint pattern?
When was that ?
Thanks for your message. I have developed my understanding of a murderers thumb through my own experience and from palmistry texts. The earliest reference of which I have read is in William Benham’s ‘The Laws of Scientific Hand Reading’ (1901). I have not explored texts older than this.
The predominant fingerprint analysis system I use was developed by a hand reader called Noel Jaquin. I have not researched the specific origins of the radial loop. Thanks
