Palmistry has existed for thousands of years, and it is still popular today. Everyone is all curious about what their hands may tell them. Obviously, the best way to create a happy future is to take consistent and positive action every day. But if you want to foresee the metaphysical side of things, you can read your palm. It is not difficult to learn palm reading lines. The more you do it, the better you get. It is also a great thing for shy people since it forces them to interact with others one-on-one while giving them something to talk about.
Types of Hands
Which hand should we read? Ideally, you should read both. According to the theory, the left hand reveals potential while the right hand indicates what you have done with that potential. Some people believe that “the left is what the God gives you, the right is what you do with it”. There are four major types of hands; each relates to the one of the four major elements in the universe: Earth, Air, Water, Fire.
- Earth hands
Earth hands are wide with square fingers and palms, thick and rough skin, and ruddy in appearance. The length of the fingers is usually equal to the length of the palm.
People having Earth hands are very practical and level-headed. They prefer to get out into the world and do something, not just learn about it. They would rather be outdoors and can be quite conservative.
- Air hands
Air hands have square or rectangular palms with long fingers. People with Air hands also have low thumbs, dry skin, and protruding knuckles. The length of the fingers is usually equal to the length of the palm.
Air types are very intellectual, curious, and full of ideas. It is very easy for them to get nervous energy; they usually tend to worry and stress. Anybody who has Air hands is a great communicator, but they sometimes internalize their feelings too much. This can lead to difficulties in their close relationships.
- Water hands
Water hands feature a short or sometimes oval palm, with long, flexible fingers. Their palm is usually wide while the length of fingers is equal to the height of the palm.
People possessing Water hands are very emotional. They are extremely artistic and always looking for peace. Water hands find it hard to deal with stress; they are mainly motivated by feelings.
- Fire hands
Fire hands feature a square or rectangular palm, pink or flushed skin, and short fingers. The length of the fingers is usually shorter than the length of the palm.
Fire types are energetic and are always on the go. They look for variety, and sometimes can be a little intolerant and impatient! People having Fire hands are often fiercely individual, which makes them great leaders.
