The Girdle of Venus
The girdle of Venus
Venus does not have her own finger, but she does have a mount — and a girdle. The girdle of Venus does not appear very often; its shape is a half-circle that runs from the outsides of the Apollo and Saturn mounts.
Named after the beautiful goddess of love, both the mount of Venus and the Venus girdle are indicative of your sensibility in love and sensuality, though of course they have many other interpretations in palmistry. This is partly because in the past, sexuality was sometimes seen as a negative attribute. Traditional practitioners often saw an interest in sexual matters as a sign of immoral living and lascivious behavior, or even as an indicator of sexual violence. However, palmists now know that the girdle of Venus is usually seen on fire and water hands, which are more sensitive and vulnerable to emotional reactions to life.
Broken Lines, Broken Hearts
A strong and healthy girdle of Venus correlates to a strong and healthy sensuality and wholesome emotions. It can also indicate a deep aesthetic sense and love for art and beauty, whether it is found in another person or in artwork. Persons with a girdle of Venus can be poets, writers, or artists.
However, a broken line can mean a fragmented sense of love, with too many flirtations and fickleness and too little devotion to the love object. It can also mean too much sensitivity, an inability to control the emotions, depression, or constant upheavals.
If the girdle of Venus crosses the fate line or line of Apollo and overwhelms them in appearance, be warned. There may be a loss of fortune or status, and this may be caused by someone you love.
If the girdle of Venus cuts through a good strong marriage line, there may be hysteria, an inability to balance emotion with any form of reason, and propensity toward addiction to and over-reliance on antidepressants.
More than one girdle of Venus can mean a greater likelihood of a life of vice and depravity. Granted, sensuality is generally seen today as a good thing, but there are limits to everything. This is especially true if the lines are broken or chained.
