The Ring finger gives us a clue about the person’s response to the external world and its influence upon him.  A person’s desire to impress others, glamour, to exhibit himself,  for fame, his degree of enthusiasm --- all these are indicated by the ring finger. At the base of the ring finger lies the Mount of Sun and hence it represents all the qualities of Sun.

The ring finger is said to be normal in length, when it reaches up to the middle of the top phalange of Saturn’s finger.

If the ring finger is longer than normal , the amount of self-confidence in a person increases considerably. He is prone to give importance to success and fame than money. He has more enthusiasm for life. (Refer fig.1) If it is equal to the length of the middle finger, a person’s  self confidence goes beyond limits.  He loves taking risks in gambling, horse racing  and other such risky speculations.

If it is shorter than the index finger, it reduces the enthusiasm.

An abnormally short  Ring finger saps up all the enthusiasm and creativity and makes a person gloomy. (refer fig2)
