Everyone always wants to know, "What are the lines in the palm and what do they mean."
This newsletter will give you brief but a very basic knowledge of which lines are which and what each line means in the palm. There is so much to study about these lines. To be a palmist one must know all about the meanings for: the length of a line, the point of origin, the termination placement, frays, branches, dots, chaining, islands, distinctive markings, the individual path the line can take in the palm itself and more.
The Life Line (A) simply symbolizes the quality of a person's life force energy. The length of this line does not tell you how long a person will live. If the line is deeply etched and well formed, meaning not broken, chained or crossed, then the person is enthusiastic about life and puts effort into their actions and relationships. So the deeply etched life line tells about a good quality and supply of life force energy. If the life line is lightly traced in the palm the person tends to be more mentally oriented and observes life as a bystander with less enthusiastic involvement than the deeply etched life-lined person would exert. So the life force energy of a lightly traced or chained, or broken life line is more delicate. If the life line's pathway travels outward into the center of the palm, its owner will be more bold about life and want to explore the world. When the life line curves more closely and hugs the thumb the owner will be more likely to stay close to home and not be very adventurous about new things and changes in life.
The Head Line (B) tells about how a person's intelligence is applied, how a person thinks and to a minor degree the well-being of the physical brain. The deeper and more clear this line the more potent the thinking processes of its owner. A thin delicate, islanded, chained or frayed head line tells you that the person is nervous, anxious, sensitive and indecisive, being too easily effected by arguments and the pressures of another's idea or will power. If the head line is short - the length shown in Figure 2, the person is more instinctive and action motivated. If the head line is longer than shown in the image on this page the person is mentally oriented, wants to learn about many things, and has good mental focus. If the head line is more straight, like in the image above, the person is very logical, reasoning and wants the facts. If the line is sloping downward, the person is imaginative, creative and more sensitive. When there are deep dots or dents present on this line or islands sometimes this tells of headaches and possible physical problems with the brain itself. Other times such indications tell of mental frustrations and of "second guessing" one's abilities to decide properly.
The Heart Line (C) tells about the owner's emotions and how they are expressed. The heart line can be looked at for health indications also. The heart line starts at the point of the letter (C) in the image. This is a different starting point than that of the other palmar lines which start at the thumb side of the palm. The longer the heart line the more the emotion is present in the personality of the owner. If the heart line is straight the owner's emotions are ruled by the mind. They think before they speak. The curved heart line, like the one shown in the above image, tells of a person who is sentimental, intuitive and openly expresses their feelings. If the heart line is clear and deep the person is comfortable with their emotions. If the line is frayed, broken, chained or delicate the person is emotionally stressed and often moody. An island on this line at about the space under the ring finger area tells of eyesight problems.
The Fate Line (D) is not always present in a palm. When it is present it helps the palmist time events in the client's life. The fate line tells all about a person's career pathway changes, independence, personal will power, and their ability to adapt to life's circumstances. If a hand does not have a fate line it is not bad like so many palmistry books have stated. It can mean the owner's life is dictated by the circumstances of their environment or by an overly possessive parent. However it can mean the owner is open minded, free wheeling and spontaneous about life and their pathway. When this line is present in it's full flow, like in the image above, the owner has a very balanced inner strength and guidance about life from within. If this line is broken it means a major life change, such as a physical move to another location, a job change, a relationship change or a complete career change, in life at the time of it's break. This is also true of a break in the life line.
