palm in one direction and the wrist in the other represents the
imagination and the desire for change in a person. This area is
known as the Mount of the Moon.

palm is prominent, it is known as a developed mount. A person having
a particular mount in a developed state is likely to have the qualities
associated with that mount. Converse is the case if a mount is depressed
