If your big toe is much longer than your other toes, you are a clever, creative thinker. You come up with ingenious solutions to problems. You can see things from different angles and are never stumped for ideas. On the downside, you may have problems focusing and sometimes don’t see projects through.
Your big toe being comparatively small is an indication that you are a superb multi-tasker. You use your charm to persuade people to go along with your ideas, can delegate effectively and are efficient. .
The second toe on your right foot shows what you want in life. If you are getting it, the toe will be touching the floor. If it isn’t, or if there is a gap between it and the third toe, that indicates you are trying to separate yourself from your emotions. The longer your second toe, the more leadership qualities you have. You are dynamic and resourceful, but your desire to get things done, ‘my way or no way’, can tip over into bossiness.
According to Indian folklore, eagle-eyed mothers stopped their sons marrying girls with long second toes because it meant they were far too bossy!
But don’t worry- it does not work the other way round for a smaller second toe! A smaller second toe doesn’t mean you’re a pushover. It simply indicates you are happy to bide your time. You value harmony and won’t try to bulldoze your way through situations.
If your third toe is comparatively long, it means you are incredibly energetic and resourceful, especially at work. The longer this toe is, the more you are driven to succeed in your career.
The Chinese associate energy, drive and willpower with the third toe.
You’re a perfectionist and can achieve huge amounts with your determination and energy. The drawback is a tendency to let work take over and to forget about fun, love and family.
If the toe is short, you enjoy the pleasures in life. You love relaxing and don’t get worked up about anything. Others may accuse you of being lazy, but you would argue that life is short, so enjoy it.
Your fourth toe is all about relationships. A long, straight fourth toe indicates family is crucially important to your life. Unhappiness in your relationships with loved ones will show up in a curling of this toe.
You are a superb listener and nurturer, but will be deeply affected by unhappiness within the family. You find it hard to cut yourself off from other people’s problems.
The Chinese would say that you’re a gentle soul, easily wounded. If your toes are clawed you need to try to let go, relax and don’t take on all the burdens of others. Your health might be affected by any disturbances in the home.
A short fourth toe means that family and relationships are less crucial to you — your focus is elsewhere.
Childlike impishness is a characteristic of those with small little toes. You’ll shy away from responsibility, be easily bored and constantly looking for amusing diversions. You are great fun to be with, sociable and witty, — but we all have to grow up sometime.
And if you can wiggle your little toe separately from your fourth toe, you are an impulsive, adventurous, charming flirt. If you can’t, you value routine, predictability and loyalty.
WHAT ARE THE ARCHES OF YOUR FEET SAY ABOUT YOU:
High arches are found on people who are very independent and self-sufficient. You need plenty of time on your own and might even be accused of being anti-social.
You have an indomitable spirit, but remember, it isn’t a weakness to ask for help. In Chinese philosophy, those with very high arches are in danger of being brittle and rigid.
If your arches are low or average, you value the company of others, are sociable and fairly extrovert. You enjoy having a good time and want to ensure that others do, too.
The Chinese would say your feet are planted firmly on the ground. You’re always on the go and can’t sit still for a minute. Let yourself stop and think. You’re happiest when you’re busy, but should try to make time for reflection, and a little peace and calm in your life. There’s a difference between idle day-dreaming and gentle reflection.
TOES THAT NEATLY GRADUATE IN SIZE
If each toe is a little longer than the one before, creating a neat line, this indicates a methodical, precise and extremely practical person. You’re interested in detail and ensure that you always finish what you start. You’re a dream employee, and a good friend — loyal and steadfast to a fault. Watch out for a tendency to nitpick, though — not everyone is as balanced as you.
LONG NARROW FEET
The Chinese would say you have Princess feet that barely touch the ground. You were born to be waited on, but spare a thought for the rest of us! You like nothing better than to be pampered. You find it incredibly easy to delegate — why bother with all the hard work if you can get someone else to do it for you? You’ve got a strong aesthetic sense and need beauty in your surroundings.
