Chow Yun Fat is known to be down-to-earth, humble, charitable and a person who likes the simple things of life.
Most of this is confirmed by his hand, but not all of it. There is nothing on his hand that suggests a philanthropic temperament but yet he has planned to donate his fortune to charity. His hand will give us some answers.
He has a long, fleshy palm with a slightly high-set thumb held a little close to his hand and shortish conic fingers which are more or less straight. The first phalanges are long, particularly that of the Apollo (ring) finger. The second phalanges are all short and the third phalanges seem normal. The lines on his hand are finely etched, medium in length and the Fate or Saturn line starts with a clear branch from the mount of Venus at the base of the palm. There is a line joining the head and heart lines. The headline slopes and dips into the Moon mount. The mounts are developed, particularly that of Moon, Venus and lower Mars.

These hand features tell us that Chow Yun Fat is an intelligent and creative soul, very artistic, and a lover of beauty and appreciation for the arts. He is imaginative but not the type to brood. He is also quite warm, passionate and loving.
Enormously talented, creative, action-oriented and enthusiastic as he is, Chow Yun Fat is not necessarily always practical. In fact, his hand shows that he can be quite the dreamer and idealistic too. His financial ability is not very good. This affects his ability to market himself in the correct way although some shrewdness is shown. Overall though, left to himself, he may not have been able to become world-famous, despite his enormous talent. For one thing, at times he has a hard time at times distinguishing his emotions from his thoughts. Secondly, he may not be able to market himself well. He is the kind of person who would go far with the right mentor and/or partner. This is because he is hard-working, goal-oriented, talented, pushy and a doer. With the right person behind him, he can achieve much.
His hand shows a strong attachment to the home, particularly early in life.
He is not materialistic, and this explains why he leads a simple life. He does not need money and luxury to be happy. Making money has never been his goal and being rich never his aim.
However, philanthropy does not come from deep within him. Maybe he wants to donate his fortune because he has no children or maybe he has been influenced by his wife. But perhaps there is another, unknown reason.
