Palm reading or palmistry is a popular art in Asia. Nowadays, its popularity has spread out to other parts of the world. For centuries, people have tried to figure out how to read a palm? This prognosticable art analyzes the lines, patterns and formations in one’s palms to make predictions about that person’s future or general personalities. These relationships can help determine the mental, emotional status and physical characteristics of the person whose palm is being read.
The Heart line is near the top of the palm; it starts from the index finger and extends through the pinkie finger. The long line reveals a steady love life while short lines imply that the owner may easily fall in love or may be less interested in romance. People with curvy Heart line may have many relationships or express their feelings more openly. Meanwhile, a straight line refers to a person who is likely to keep their head in romantic affairs. Breaks or circles in the line forecast emotional trauma.
The Head line, which extends horizontally through the middle of the palm, represents a person’s thinking style. People with curvy lines are creative and spontaneous while owners of straight lines are straightforward. If the Head line does not cross the Life line, then the owner is adventurous. Breaks in the Head line reveal inconsistencies while donuts or crosses indicate emotional crises that the bearer has suffered.
The next major line that starts near the thumb and curves in an arc is the Life line. Most of palm readers consider this line as one of the most important line on the hand. The Life line reflects health status, major life changes or an individual’s well-being. The deep line implies vitality while shallow one refer to a person who can be easily manipulated. Sometimes a person may have multiple Life lines, which means they are extremely vital. Breaks in the Life line display sudden changes in life while circles represent major injuries or illnesses. A swoop or semicircle on this line implies the enthusiasm and strength that the person may lend to their life.
The fate line is the final major line, representing items that are beyond one person’s control. This line is vertical and cuts through the middle of the palm. The deep line belongs to a person who is greatly controlled by their fate while the owner of a light line has much freedom. Many breaks in this line mean the bearer’s life is likely changed by external forces. If the Fate line hits the Life line, the owner set their goals and aspirations very early on. If this line crosses the Life line in the center, the person tends to surrender to the will of others. In contrast, if it begins at the base of the thumb and completely intersects the Life line then this person is strongly supported by his/her friends and family.
