The index finger is known as the Jupiter finger. The area immediately below these fingers are known as the mounts.
If you stretch the hand and point to the side, there will be normally three raised areas below each finger. The area directly below the first finger is known as the Jupiter mount or alternatively the install of Jupiter, this mount has also been known as the Vrihaspati Parvat. This mount was named after the Roman god, Zeus. The mount of Jupiter symbolizes the way in which the person exposes themselves to the rest of the world and the way a person gets recognition from society. It reveals feelings of self-esteem, as well as the air of power and management, idealism, feeling of respect and bravery. Some palmists view the general shape of the Jupiter finger rather than read the actual install. Going back to the 1920's a well-defined Jupiter mount indicated a powerful, strong person. William Benham wrote a book on palmistry which provides an intensive overview of the mount's and there supposed characteristics.
To have a raised Jupiter mount means that this person has positive outlooks, as well as charm. He or she is outgoing, has expertise in handling others, and aspirations. A normal and healthy Jupiter mount in a healthy hand is normally slightly raised. The bearer has a desire to help others. However, if this install is far greater than the others, it indicates a feeling of trying to control others, as well as excessive pleasure and self-contentedness and perhaps, even bigotry. Be cautious of avarice, a need for power and one world. People with Jupiter qualities are healthy they have the remarkable potential to hold talks. Simultaneously, they have the passion for studying and collecting information. They are hearten and great benefactors. Often these people head towards achievement. They have unique functions of power and freedom.

In ancient times palmists read the hands of wealthy people, such as lords, ladies, judges and people with a good standing. Therefore, the information collated on the meaning of mounts is focused on people who were well-nourished. Many palmists are discontinuing the use of reading the mounts on the above. Cherio devotes a whole section to mounts and their meaning. As people are eating more healthy we find many people lack a raised mount.
