Apollo and Jupiter

Finding the Ideal Balance

Apollo, the finger of the sun, is also the finger that indicates how creative you are. And much like the star that lights the world, this finger signifies how you will find your creativity. Apollo (ring) and Jupiter (pointer) fingers need to be equal. Such a relationship indicates a balance between talent and ambition. You might appreciate beauty and have style as a musician or actor, but you need to be able to have these two fingers in balance in order to manage the lifestyle.

Are yours in balance? Look at the back of your hand. Hold your fingers flat out and together. Is your ring finger the same height as the pointer finger? Then you understand self-promotion as well as you understand the creative process, if you are an artist.

If your ring finger is longer than your pointer finger - or reaches past the half-way point of the beginning of your middle (Saturn) fingernail, then your Apollo is considered long. This might mean that your artistic element is evident. However, you might be inconsistent in temperament. You might have the desire to retreat into a fantasy world. You might push things to extremes.

Still, it could be worse. In this mode you can still be productive, even if you’re difficult to live with.

But an extreme Apollo will be nearly equal in length to the Saturn. If you have this, you crave an audience and expect applause. You might not be able to withstand the stormy rejection of critics, often thinking your work is truly innovative and beyond the comprehension of the masses. Or, if you don’t get recognition soon enough, you may simply decide to throw away your career.

On the other hand, if your Apollo is short, you might be shy. So stretch that finger nightly.
