Some people are into horoscopes, but I find palm reading a very entertaining thing. I do not believe that it is accurate, but just like horoscopes, it has it’s moments of accuracy that makes you wonder if there isn’t a little truth or chance behind it all.
So here’s a study of my palms for your entertainment!
First, let’s start with the basics.
There are a couple different theories about all of this, different cultures have different traditional meanings/ways to read the palm. I’m giving you what I’ve picked up and interpreted through sporadic research in my youth/recently. (But mostly what I researched recently from wikiHow because I don’t want to lead you wrong! You can read more at wikiHow if you are curious)
The theory I like as to which palm to read is that it depends on gender. A woman’s right hand shows what she is born with, and the left shows what she has actually lived, and the man’s left show’s what he is born with, and the right shows what he actually has lived.
1. Is the heart line, 2. is the head line, 3. is the life line, and 4. is the fate line.
The heart line (1) supposedly represents emotional stability, cardiac health, and romantic perspectives.
The head line (2) represents a person’s approach to communication and the process of learning, as well as their intellectual abilities.
The life line (3) it reflects physical health, general well being, and major life changes (for example, cataclysmic events, physical injuries, etc).
The fate line (4) depicts how in control the person is of their own life vs along for the ride of predetermined events. Not everyone has a fate line!
There are also 4 types of hand shapes, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. See the above link for more info on those.
Now, an analysis of my own hands! Let’s start with the shape!
My palm is very square/rectangle shaped. I have pink-toned skin. My fingers are shorter than my palm is long. These indicate that I have a fire shaped palm. People with fire palms are extroverts, sometimes egotistical, impulsive, and insensitive, generally spontaneous, enthusiastic and optimistic. They generally do things boldly and instinctively.
Now an analysis of my right palm, which if you remember, is what I was ‘born with’.
My heart line starts in between my index and middle finger, indicating I was destined to fall in love easily. A line running parallel to my head line means I have a good handle on my emotions, which I find entertainingly contradictory, good handle on my emotions, but I fall in love easily! (I’m not sure you can see this in the picture) but I have a bunch of small lines directly below my middle finger that intersect with my heart line, which should indicate a destiny for emotional trauma. A lot of small circles (also probably not showing up on the picture) means that I was born with a destiny for bouts of depression.
My head line is somewhere in between curved and straight, meaning I was born slightly creative and slightly realistic when it comes to thinking patterns. It is deep and long saying I was born with an ability for clear and focused thinking. There are a couple of crosses in the head line indicating I was destined to make several momentous decisions. There is one ‘donut’ or loop in the head line saying yet again that I was destined for an emotional crisis. It’s separation from the life line says that I was born with an enthusiasm for life and adventure.
My right hand life line is curvy and indicates I was born with plenty of energy. It’s long and deep so I was born with ample vitality. The semi-circle shape suggests strength and enthusiasm. The extra lines that run parallel in between my life line and my thumb says that I was born with extra vitality.
Now my fate line is the lightest and most shallow of the four. The lack of being deep suggests I was not born to be controlled by fate. It breaks and changes directions, suggesting I was born with a fate of being prone to external forces changing my life.
On to the left palm! “What I have lived”
My heart line starts in under my index finger, indicating I am content with my love life. My left heart line is more straight than my right suggesting I have a better handle on my emotions than I was born with. There are more circles and intersecting lines on my left than right, suggesting I have lived more sadness and emotional trauma than I was born to encounter.
My left head line is almost identical to my right, suggesting I am living the way I was born to, however there are more crossed lines and circles than on my right, suggesting once again that I encounter emotional trauma and sadness that I was not born destined to encounter.
My left hand life line is mostly identical to the right. It get much lighter at one end and has a bit of a break up towards my index finger, this could indicate a sudden change in lifestyle and then a proneness to being controlled by others.
The fate line on my left is not really there at all. This suggests that I have completely abandoned my ability to be controlled by fate.
Now you know what a palm reader might possibly derive from my own hand. Do I believe this? Not to a T, but it makes some uncannily accurate suggestions.
I bet you are looking at your own palm now!
