Mounts and their significance are vital parameters of palmistry to discover the past, present, future, personality and temperament of a person. Mounts are the raised, fleshy portions of the palm that indicate the activity levels of various centers of the brain. In palmistry, mounts are also considered as magnetic centers that reflect the activities of the subconscious mind.
There are 7 mounts on a palm - each revealing the mental and physical characteristics of an individual. Let us take a look at each of these mounts.
