How to read your Palm
For most, Palm reading seems either too simple to be possible, or too complex to approach- I have to say I side with the latter. In this post and a few others (coming soon) I will help you look for the most common things we would like to find in the palm of our hands!
A little bit of History
Palmistry has an unusually rich history. Its foundation widely accepted as stemming from Hindu astrology. Its presence was wide spread in ancient practice across Eurasia- India, Tibet, China, Persia, Sumeria, ancient Israel and Babylonia. Aristotle famously presented a work on Palmistry supposedly written in 350BC to Alexander the Great who applied it to various aspects of his life. Palmistry suffered greatly during the rise of the Catholic Church, and for a long time following was regarded as ‘magic’ and a forbidden art.
For anyone interested the famous historic work “The Laws of Scientific Hand Reading” is available free on PDF here.
How to read Marriage lines
In the picture below you will see the marriage line. Note, females read the right hand, and males read the left. After looking at your own lines, ask yourself these questions:
Do you have more than one line?
Is the line consistent and straight?
Does it curve upwards/downwards?
Does it have a fork at the end?
Is it erratic ?
Now that you are familiar with your own lines take a look below to see what this says about you! Keep in mind I have simplified this-palms are much like anything, you need to read the whole picture to find true clarity.
Having multiple lines is often interpreted as dis-functional, or lacking in longevity, however this actually greatly depends on the nature of the lines, if they are deep, and reasonable in length, without running into each other, they are signs of lasting synergistic relationships that have meaning on our journey. They are usually relationships that end in death, or in harmony. If the lines are shallow, touch each other, or erratic this symbolizes relationships that are less positive, and lack in synergy- often resulting in conflict.
*Multiple lines but not of the same length signals conflict within a single relationship(the longest line), but it doesn’t rule out resolution and harmony
Long-A long line (at depth) indicates lasting happy relationships that began at a young age.
Short-A short line (at depth) indicates marriage later in life, and often occurs when a person prioritizes career over romance.
Upwards-This is a good sign for happiness and compatibility, but it also goes further, this is often seen in those who are in a relationship that has Karmic roots, soulmates, or twinflames.
Downwards-This is an indication of divorce and unhappiness within a relationship, it is often seen in those that end in infidelity.
Seen as the Y shape at the beginning or end of a marriage line. Neither fork is positive, however it is dependent on the depth and size of the fork. A shallow smaller fork may mean some time apart, but if the rest of the line is intact and deep, the relationship rebuilds. Those with larger forks will either; fork at the beginning-separation, fork at the end-stay together unhappily.
