‘I see dead people…’ It’s a popular quote from Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense) who played a kid that can see dead people, duh~ but how far can you really see not only ‘dead people’ in your life but also your relationships, health or even romance? some people say our future hold from the orientation of our faces, horoscopes or even the ridiculous magic 8-balls. We leave nothing out when it comes to interpreting what our future holds.

What about our hands then? palm readers take it as a blueprint of your life your destiny and your character. It’s close to believable compared to your magic 8-ball, yea. Aren’t quite ready to pay a visit to a palm reader yet? well, this information that I stumbled upon should be a good start.

Which hand?
It’s both. It just depends on who you ask. Some use a man’s right hand and a woman’s left hand. Other’s say the dominant/active hand -the one you write with-

The shape of hand
There are four shapes used to classify hands and they’re related to the four elements; earth, air, water, and fire.

Earth

  • broad, square palms with square, short fingers
  • thick/coarse skin, ruddy color
  • deep, clear, and straight lines

Earth hands belong to practical and stubborn who have a strong vitality and a close connection to the outdoors and nature. Many work with their hands and find comfort in tangible things. They are dependable, straightforward, and responsible.

Air

  • square or rectangular palms with long fingers
  • low-set thumbs and dry skin
  • thin, clear lines

Those with air hands are social, talkative, and intellectual types who seek change and mental stimulation. They can be restless and tend to do things in innovative ways.

Water

  • long, sometimes oval-shaped palms with long fingers
  • soft, damp skin
  • lots of fine lines, often unclear

Water hands belong to emotional, creative, and introverted types who are sensitive and perceptive. They can be vulnerable and a bit naïve. They tend to be quiet and make decisions based on gut feelings.

Fire

  • square or rectangular palms with short fingers
  • warm, flushed, pinkish skin
  • lots of prominent lines

Those with fire hands are spontaneous, bold, and action-oriented types who take risks. They are extroverts who are very optimistic and enthusiastic. They are somewhat impulsive and very confident.

The Major Lines

Life Line
The life line starts between the thumb and the index finger. It then curves down widely around the thumb until it touches the wrist. This line represents your health, vitality, and quality of life. It can also show major events in your life and how others affect you. Its length has nothing to do with how long you will live. If you have an extra life line, you have extra protection against ill health.

  • Curvy – lots of energy
  • Short or shallow – easily manipulated
  • Break in line – sudden change in life
  • Close to the thumb – not generous with time or love
  • Circle interrupts line – injury or hospitalization

Heart Line
The top, horizontal line on your palm is the heart line; it starts from the edge of the hand where your pinky finger is and travels across the top of the palm. Many palm readers use this line to determine our romantic relationships. It can also indicate our actual cardiac health, emotional stability, and tendencies toward depression. Breaks in the love line can represent heartbreaks and breakups.

  • Ends between fore and middle finger – falls in love easily
  • Straight across the palm – even, controlled emotions
  • Wavy – lots of lovers, but no serious relationships
  • Straight and short – more about sex than romantic love
  • Touches life line – frequently heartbroken

Head Line
The head line is the horizontal line right below the heart line. It represents what kind of intelligence you possess and the way you communicate. A curved head line indicates a creative, spontaneous type while a straight line indicates a more practical and ordered approach to life. A clear line indicates focus; the longer the line, the more potential you have.

  • Wavy – short attention span, little focus
  • Straight – realistic
  • Circle or cross in line – crisis
  • Close to heart line – fearful, cautious nature, close-minded
  • Far from heart line – confident, a risk taker, open-minded

Fate Line
This line begins at the bottom of the palm and travels upward toward the middle finger. It is also called the line of destiny. Often broken and overlapping other lines, it shows how much (or little) our lives are affected by external circumstances, like society, our friends and families, and world events.

  • Strong and deep – very controlled by fate
  • Breaks/changes in direction – prone to changes from outside forces
  • Lines that cross fate line – others will affect your destiny
  • Starts joined to life line – self-made individual
  • Joins with life line – personal interests will be surrendered to those of others
  • Starts at base of thumb and crosses life line – support from family and friends

This is just a small introduction to palmistry. To get the whole picture, factor in things like where you wear your rings, special characteristics of your thumbs, nails, and fingerprints, how flexible or rigid your hands are, and countless other nuances. Amazingly, the lines on our hands can change over time, so don’t get too pessimistic if your love life looks doomed or overly optimistic if you read fame and fortune in your future. Nothing is set in stone and our choices matter as much as our lines.

P/S: Though some things are quite believable, you must always remember and to believe in YOURself that YOU are in control of your own life. Be CONFIDENT. Anyway, thanks to Natalie Josef for this article!

    I loved reading this. I especially liked the idea of outlining the different lines on the hand in colors to make them easy to see. I did that right away with my own hands.
