The Minor Lines Of The Palm - Palm Reading
The Fate Line
Having a fate line means you have a strong goal in life, and are working hard towards achieving it. Virtually every successful person has one, because it's rare to reach the top without a strong goal and the drive to get there.
The fate line is also a bit of a good luck charm— people who have it experience fewer mishaps in life, and when crises do come, they seem to overcome them more smoothly. It's almost as if it were a guide, a protector that steers them along the right path.
If you do not show a fate line, you are probably not driven to succeed in any one field. You may be at a point where you're still wondering what to do with your life, or perhaps you made a major mistake earlier and now seem stuck in a hopeless pattern. It's always possible to change your life for the better, and chances are if you find the key to success, a fate line will soon appear, confirming the strength of your new decision.
Occasionally, a person without a fate line will succeed financially, but this is usually the result of either odd fortune—such as a sudden inheritance or lottery windfall—or the result of other factors. Hollywood entertainment executives, for example, are famous for "failing upward"—that is, receiving a better offer from a company after being fired from their previous job. Many of these types do not have fate lines, but experience a different definition of success that comes through being in the right place at the right time and knowing how to play the game (by virtue, usually, of a strong head line).
The position at which the fate line begins is an indication of the point in time you decided on your path. If it begins inside the life line, you were under a strong family influence early in life, and it took a while before you became independent enough to pursue your dream on your own. The benefit of this is that you probably have a strong foundation of morals and caring for others—you may be successful in life, but it won't come at the expense of family.
If your fate line begins outside the life line, it indicates a sense of independence very early in life. You've always preferred your own way of doing things, and this tendency will keep you from getting trapped in career corners throughout life.
Some people have fate lines that begin towards the outside of the palm, which emphasize the independent streak even more. In this case, you likely did not have a strong family structure at all—perhaps you were an only child from a broken home or even an orphan—so you learned to be on your own at a very young age. Ironically, this usually indicates a career in the public eye: as if to compensate for the lack of family as a child, you will seek to find acceptance in the multitudes. Many performers and artists fit this profile. Almost all will say they decided to become performers as a very small child.
So if the starting point represents a childhood decision, what is the time scale of the remainder of the fate line? Well, it's not exactly linear. Since the fate line most commonly represents career goals, its scale is weighted towards the point at which those are accomplished. The point where the fate line crosses the head line is age thirty-five. This is most commonly the age at which people settle into their path and attain a sense of order to their lives.
From there, it's usually very straight until it crosses the heart line, at age forty-nine. These years are usually stable, during which time you're earning money and raising a family.
Quite often, the fate line will end at age forty-nine. Again, this does not indicate longevity of life but the attainment of life goals. Once you've reached them, you become more relaxed and set in your ways. If your fate line continues on from this point, you will enjoy a continued sense of variety in life—and that is often an indicator of longevity. You might also notice a slight break around age forty-nine. Again, this indicates—especially for very independent people—a will that is just not satisfied with the attainment of the first goal. You'll find a new challenge, and enjoy a stimulating new path later in life.
You might notice an adjoining line that runs parallel to your fate line. This simply means you have more than one goal, more than one interest in life. Perhaps you have a hobby that excites you so much it becomes a second career goal. Or maybe you're a "Renaissance man" (or woman), with an unsatiable appetite for variety to go along with your drive for success. This is fine, but remember that it's nearly impossible in our specialized world to be an expert—and a success—in more than one or two fields.
The point at which your fate line ends is also important. If it runs straight upward toward your second finger, as is most common, you have chosen a stable, productive role in society—you're likely a businessperson or executive or teacher. If it veers towards your third finger, your path is more creative—perhaps you're a musician, actor, architect, or designer. If it runs all the way toward your little finger, a very rare instance, you are a born communicator (since the little finger represents Mercury, the messenger)—you're an ideal entertainer, public speaker, or broadcaster.
Quite often, the definition of fate lines will vary in one palm. The stronger it looks, the stronger your will to succeed at that point in life. So if it's blurry or vague, you too are (or were) unclear of your direction at the time indicated. If it shows a break, that indicates a career change. If it joins the life line at any point, your family takes precedence over your own will at that stage of life. If there's a square surrounding it at any point, feel fortunate. You are protected from potential hazards, and will come through them without losing momentum.
The Health Line
If you do have one, it should be well-defined. If it's clear and long, running all the way to the little finger, you'll enjoy a long, healthy life. Sure, you may have the odd occurrence of a minor setback here or there—everyone does—but your constitution is strong enough to outlast them easily.
If your health line is indistinct, you probably have health problems. Little changes often make a powerful difference in these cases—try altering your diet and getting more exercise.
If it varies in quality, it indicates health setbacks. Breaks are indicative of periods of illness or injury. If, however, a break is surrounded by a square, you will be protected and enjoy a smooth recovery.
The Sun Line
If you show a clearly-defined sun line, you have the potential for greatness. If it begins lower on your palm, near the wrist, you will have already enjoyed great achievement, and its length will determine how long you enjoy your success. In these rare cases, the sun line sometimes ends before the head line, indicating brilliant early success, then a burn-out. Child actors, for instance, might show such a line.
Most sun lines vary in intensity, showing breaks or other defects. This is actually common, because great success does not usually come free of obstacles. A break, for instance, indicates financial problems. More breaks indicate versatility, but usually people with this characteristic spread themselves too thin over too many areas. A square, as usual, is a sign of protection from harm—in this case, you'll experience trouble in the career world, but will emerge free of damage to your reputation and stability.
If you show three or four short parallel vertical lines under your little finger, you are blessed with a wonderful healing touch. This is called the Medical Stigmata, so named because those who have it tend to be drawn toward the healing pro-

THE MAJOR LINES - Palm Reading
The Life Line
The life line is the lowest of the three. It begins on the edge of the hand between the thumb and forefinger, and extends in a downward arc. Contrary to popular belief, the length of the lifeline does not necessarily correspond to the length of your life. It is a measure of how you live, not how long you live. Quality, not quantity. This is because your palm is changeable—it reflects the course you're currently on, but if you alter it, it will reflect your new direction.
So if your life line is short, fear not. Many people with short life lines have led long, full lives. In fact, some parents become frightened when they notice that one of their children has a short life line (the three major lines actually form only eight weeks into the embryonic stage of a baby's development). What they fail to realize is that the length will change as the child grows older.
It's more important that the life line extend as far as possible across the palm. If your life line fits this description, you have a great zest for living, you look forward to waking up and greeting each day, and you are blessed with an exceptional amount of energy and stamina. It stands to reason that with your great enthusiasm for life, you are likely to live much longer.
Conversely, if your lif e line is shaped like a semicircle that arcs inward back towards the thumb, you need to work on your stamina and attitude. You are more likely to be depressed, to encounter more day-to-day problems, and you tire easily. You need to balance your life so you get enough exercise and stimulating activity, but also more quality rest and relaxation. This will improve your overall outlook on life, and thus help extend it.
What if you show a break in the life line? Does that indicate a serious calamity? Not usually. You're likely to experience a change in your outlook at that time, brought on by a change in another area—it could be your health, or your relationship, or your career. By examining the lines that represent those areas later, you can perhaps find a clue, and so avoid unneccessary crises in your life.
If you see a break in the life line surrounded by a box, this is very promising. It means you can handle the problem the break suggests and overcome it smoothly. But if the box does not surround a break, it suggests confinement, perhaps even prison. Knowing this in advance will help you avoid it, and the box will disappear. Really.
How do you chart time on your life line? Once again, the length of the line does not accurately reflect the length of your life. But you can still estimate time on it. The best method is to draw an imaginary line fronvyour second finger down to the life line. The point that it meets the life line is about the age of thirty-five. So if you see a break in the life line just beyond this point, you can prepare yourself for a change in your life just after that age.
If you know of a major event in your life that happened earlier than age thirty-five, such as an accident or breakup or death of a loved one, you might see a mark on your life line before the thirty-five point. From there, you can figure the number of years by the difference in length, and then use the same distance to figure events in the future. So if you broke both legs in a skiing accident at age twenty-five, which is indicated by a break in your life line an inch before the thirty-five point, you can assume that an inch beyond that point indicates age forty-five, and so on.
You might also notice a large number of very fine lines around the base of the thumb. Some may even cross the life line, or be more prominent than others. These are worry lines, and the more you have the more worrying you've done in your life, and will continue to do. Worrying, however, is not healthy. It leads to all sorts of health problems and psychological unhappiness. Learn to relax and enjoy life more, and these lines will gradually disappear.
The Head Line
Logically, you would think the head line would be the uppermost of the three major lines. But no. The head line is the middle one, and it represents intelligence and the quality of your thinking.
In general, the longer the head line, the more intellectually gifted you are. If you have a very long head line—one that extends all the way across the palm to the outer edge, you have a wide range of interests, great powers of insight, and enormous capacity for learning.
If your head line extends to about the area under the little finger, you are bright, quick-thinking, and have several main interests.
If your head line ends in the area under the ring finger (the average length), you are practical. You get to the point and get on with it, rather than debate and analyze like those with longer head lines are prone to do.
Head lines can also be divided into two distinct types: practical and imaginative. Practical head lines extend in a virtual straight line across the palm. If this is yours, you are a logical thinker, not one to take something on faith. You are best-suited for a career that emphasizes logic and analysis over imagination.
Imaginative head lines extend in a downward arc towards the wrist. The further the arc extends downward, the more imaginative you are. If it extends so far downward it actually connects with the wrist, you are so imaginative as to be somewhat out of touch with the workings of the real world. If it has a more gentle arc, you are highly creative, and you know how to succeed with your gifts. You also have a need to surround yourself with natural beauty or things that inspire your imagination.
Some people show a fork on their head line. This is very positive—it indicates a head suited both for practical matters and imaginative ideas. If you show this, you've probably learned how to succeed by using both qualities to your advantage.
If the head line slopes upward, it indicates a need for material possessions. You want to get rich, and the sooner the better.
It's also useful to examine the point at which the head line begins. There are two main scenarios here—dependence and independence. First, if it's joined to the life line at its origin, it indicates a cautious personality. If it begins beneath the life line, it means you needed the protection of your parents early in life, and still lack a good deal of confidence in yourself. If it's actually joined with the life line for a short distance, you were not able to separate yourself from your parents for awhile, and needed their help and guidance to make decisions.
But if your head line does not connect with your life line, you were born independent and remain so to this day. It didn't take you long to affirm your identity, and you might even have had some conflicts with your family in your youth as a result. The farther away from your life line, the more independent you are. If your head line starts at the base of your forefinger, you are so determined to get your way in life that nothing will stop you.
The Heart Line
The heart line is the uppermost of the three major lines, and extends in the opposite direction of the other two. It begins on the outer edge of the palm and ends somewhere under the first two fingers.
There are two main types of heart lines: physical and mental, which are rather like the popular classifications of personalities as Type A or Type B. The physical heart line, for instance, curves upward at the end, finishing either on one of the first two fingers or between them. If this matches your heart line, you are able to express yourself and your feelings well, and are capable of overcoming emotional pain. If you have a relationship breakup, for example, you have your share of hurt feelings, but you get over it and move on.
If your heart line simply goes straight and ends before the first two fingers, without curving, ifs the mental type. You are very sensitive, and you don't recover from emotional trauma well. You keep your feelings to yourself, and so suffer the blues a great deal. You are emotional to the point where it often blocks your practical sense.
No matter which type of heart line you have, the point where it ends is quite important. If it stops somewhere between the first two fingers, you are well-balanced. The first finger represents the ego and self-concern, the second worldly judgement, so in this case your needs are met, but in the context of reality. This offers the best chance for happiness.
If your heart line stops on the first finger, you are selfish to a fault: your ideals are often unattainable in the real world, and so you will be so selective as to hurt your own chances for finding a mate.
If your heart Line ends on your second finger, especially after curving downwards, you are gifted with a special love for humanity. You are a care-giver, a nurturer, and simply all heart. But you place the needs of others before your own happiness, so while this is a wonderful, rewarding quality to serve the world, it is often at your own expense.
Many heart lines will fork near the end. This is not a negative sign, just an indication of emotional complexity. If you have three or more lines that look like branches, you are the ultimate romantic—extremely emotional and in love with love. This is actually considered a lucky mark, but only if you're in a relationship with a partner who is just as supportive emotionally.
You might notice marks in the early stages of your heart line that look like chain links. These are indications of emotional stresses. They're very common in the first half of life; if the line continues onward smoothly, you'll have a happy, stable romantic life thereafter.
Finally, you might notice a small companion line that runs parallel with your heart line towards its end. If so, you're a lucky soul. This is an indication of a long-lasting relationship that extends through the later years of life. What could be better?

Introduction To Palm Reading 101 Featured
It looks simple. You glance at your palm and you see three major lines. At some point in your life you've probably heard of palmistry and wondered what those three lines meant, but then you thought, "Oh, it's just a bunch of baloney," and that was that.
In fact, those three lines are just the beginning. Virtually everything about your hand reveals aspects of your personality and lif e: its shape, the type of its skin, the fingers, the way the hand combines with the fingers, the three major lines, and all the other little lines as well. To think all this time you've had a wealth of insight literally in the palm of your hand and at your fingertips, and you didn't know how to use it. Well, now you will!
And by the way, it's not considered baloney anymore, either—nor should it ever have been. The art of palmistry began in the Stone Age— ancient cave paintings of hands are abundant, and the second-oldest manuscript known to man is a treatise on hand-reading. Through the years it has gained more and more scientific acceptance, particularly through the credibility of the famous psychologist Dr. Carl Jung, and recently received an enormous boost of legitimacy with a new scientific theory.
According to this medical study, as reported in Time and Newsweek, the nerve endings in the hands are directly connected to the brain, as if the hand were itself a printout of the brain's circuitry. This was supported by the fact that people who have lost the nerve functions in their hands also lost their lines.
By the same token, since people go through a lifetime's worth of subtle personality changes, so the hands too experience corresponding changes in their lines (always in response to the brain, never before it).
Some skeptics still maintain that lines are merely reflective of hard work, scars, or physical tears—that sort of thing. Jung disproved this by examining the hands of newborns—even they have distinctive line patterns!
What does all this mean? If the patterns on our hands merely reflect what's already happened, how can they possibly help us?
Yes, the hands are like mirrors of our personalities. In some cases, they can help predict the future (as with the major lines, which we were born with), but they can also help us see ourselves better. We get into ruts, we forget what we're good at and what we're not good at, and by studying our hands, we can remind ourselves of our strengths, our best chances for happiness, and even our destiny.
The Shape of the Hand
First of all, you'll notice a subtle difference between the patterns on your left and right hands. Your dominant hand (for most of you, this is your right hand) reflects information about your everyday lif e, and the opposite hand indicates your imagination and inherited qualities. Your dominant hand is usually larger as well, since you use it more.
There are three main types of hands: round, square, and rectangular.
If your palm is round, you are the active type. Quick-thinking, quick-acting, always on the go, always trying to get ahead, ambitious, and goal-oriented. You grasp ideas easily and achieve financial success rather quickly as well. You feel fenced-in by dull jobs—especially housework— and would much rather sink your teeth into a challenge. Your career choice tends to be law, journalism, acting, stock brokering—anything high-pressure and challenging. Celebrities with round palms include Johnny Carson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Julia Roberts.
If your palm is square, it indicates, as you might suspect, that you are earthy, hard-working, and capable of solving problems (especially those of a logical nature). This aptitude assures of you of success in your chosen field, which tends to be in the specialized technical areas. You are also trustworthy, skeptical, highly moral, modest, and very grounded in reality. You enjoy activities that involve your hands, such as woodworking or painting. Famous square-hand types are Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone, Barbara Bush, and Amelia Earhart.
If your palm is rectangular, you are more of a thinker—in fact, you spend more time dreaming than doing, imagining more than you can carry out. You also have a tendency to get bored easily, and wander from job to job and person to person, always floating on top of life but not diving in very often. You're the creative type, but you have to discipline yourself to concentrate, otherwise success can elude you.
Actually, this third category can be subdivided further: rectangular-handed people without many lines on their palms are generally more active and emotionally stable than those with a great deal of lines. So if you have few lines, you are creative and sensitive, but ultimately your head rules your heart. Celebrity examples of this type include Jimmy Stewart, Kirstie Alley, Michael Landon, and Betty White.
If you see many lines on your palms, these are probably the result of worrying too much and imagining too many scenarios that will never be played out in real life. You are in love with love, and you'll create drama just to satisfy your craving for it. In other words, your heart rules your head. You share this hand-type with Katherine Hepburn and psychic Jeane Dixon.
Before examining the details of the palm, check the back of your hand
and assess your skin type, to see what it reveals about you. There are
three major categories: smooth, healthy, and worn (obviously, don't
cheat and rub lotion on it just before you do this).
If your skin is smooth, you are known for your good taste and sophisitication, but you may be a bit lazy. You're more of a thinker than a doer, and need to be reminded of practicalities—like paying bills—often.
If your skin is healthy and firm, somewhere between smooth and rough, you are physical and active, something of an outdoorsy type, but not overly so. You love sports and staying in shape, and you are very efficient in everything you do.
If your skin is worn and rough, you obviously spend a great deal of time outdoors. To you, physi-cality is your most important quality. You are very strong, love challenges, and often meet dares just to prove your mettle. You thrive in wide-open spaces.
If you have thick fingers, which are strong and square at the tips, you are realistic and down-to-earth. You're also pragmatic, hard-working, materialistic, and opinionated.
If you have soft fingers, it's not because you're overweight. They're there for a reason. You have a warm, loving, receptive personality. You have an intuitive sense about people—you pick up their thoughts and emotions non-verbally, and by your keen sense of touch. Your fingers are smooth around the knuckles and the tips are shaped like cones.
If you have thin fingers, you're more the analytical type. You're idealistic, critical, and logical. Your knuckles are more defined and your tips are square or just a little rounded. The skin tends to be dry as well.
If you have sinuous fingers, with knuckles that are barely pronounced and tips shaped like trap-ezoids, you're an active type. You get nervous a lot, but you also get a lot done, and therefore achieve success earlier.
It's possible that you can have a combination of these four types, but it's rare. More likely is an unusual combination of fingers and palms. For example, a rectangular palm, which indicates sensitivity and imagination, is most likely to have soft fingers, because they fit closely with the personality type. But you could easily have rectangular palms and thin fingers, meaning your sensitive but logical as well—a good combination of heart and head. We're all unique, so expect the overall picture to be somewhat complex.
A fun aspect to the fingers is their mythological associations, as follows:
The index finger is associated with Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. It therefore represents leadership and pride. If it's long, you are strong-willed and even a bit dictatorial; medium, you're a quieter, more graceful leader; short, you more of an advisor than a president.
The middle finger represents Saturn, as well as the qualities of good judgement, balance, fairness, and planning. If it's long, you're very cautious and must be convinced before making a decision; medium, you're a little more open-minded, a moderate; short, you need to spend more time deciding what's right.
The ring finger is that of Apollo, and signifies, as you might suspect, romance and style (you don't wear that symbol of romance there for nothing). If it's long, you're passionate and a tastemaker, one who creates fashion trends; if it's medium, you're quietly tasteful and romantically active; short, you follow the prevailing trends and are very loyal in relationships.
The little finger is associated with Mercury, which we learned in astrology represents communications, speed, writing, and conversation. If it's long, you're a great talker and natural salesperson; medium, you make a convincing case when you feel the need to; short, you're a shy listener.
The thumb represents the goddess Rhea, and more importantly, the will. Since it's opposed to the other four, it can easily dominate the tendencies of all of them. If it's long, you are stubborn and used to getting what you want; medium, you're a good negotiator, and you understand the nature of give-and-take situations; short, you give up too easily.
Hand and Finger Combinations
One of history's most famous palm scientists developed a system of
hand-and-finger combinations that uses the four basic elements: fire,
earth, air, and water. Knowing which combination you have will not only
help define your personality, it can also help you find your ideal
The fire hand is rectangular with short fingers. Since fire is hot, full of energy, and constantly moving to survive, so are you. The long palm brings you creativity and sensitivity, the short fingers an eye for the big picture (details are for long-fingered types). So you create passionately, on a grand scale, and you experience life to the fullest, but you burn people without realizing it.
The earth hand is square with short fingers. The squareness of your palm brings you a solid work ethic, the kind that leads to long-term success, and the short fingers an ability to work with things of a larger scope—i.e., you're a better forester than a whittler. You love rhythm, and are very attuned to the seasons, the generations, the birth /life continuum. Your family comes first.
The air hand is square with long fingers. Just as air is associated with the wind, birds, sound waves, and communication, so you are very quick in your movements and intellect, and you speak and write cogently and logically. In fact, your mind often overrules your heart and gets in the way of your emotional needs. Most people with air hands are either in the communications field, are in one that emphasizes logic, such as law.
The water hand is rectangular with long fingers. As astrological water signs are highly emotional and creative, so too are people with water hands. You are very introverted, experiencing most of life beneath your outer shell. Like a Pisces, your imagination and emotions feed each other, and you are highly spiritual and intuitive. But you rely on others to move you to action, as water relies on outside forces like wind and gravity to move it.
Fire and air: Both of you are highly intelligent, which makes for charged conversation, and you're both goal-oriented and passionate. The negative is a tendency to be competitive, which generates friction, but the attraction is electric, and carries enough mutual interest to overcome that.
Earth and earth: You believe in the same things, to such a strong degree that a combination with another sign would be too problematic. The only negative is sameness—you're likely to get into a rut. Still, you share too much to too great a degree—this is what lasting relationships are based on.
Water and water: Since the water sign is the most misunderstood, it's also the hardest to match. For this reason, relationships with those who understand you best seem the most compatible, although this varies to a great degree. In this combination, there is great mutual support and magnetism, but also a tendency for over possessiveness, jealousy, and irritation. If it's too unsteady, find another—you're the most adaptable type, so a combination with, say, your opposite the fire hand, can be just as successful.

Learning Palm Reading | How To Read Palms
Palm reading is the practice of predicting or seeing the future using the human palm. It is used in different variations all over the world. Palm reading relies on using the lines etched into our palms to depict the many changes in our lives. Palm reading is very accessible. It is a time-honored skill that has been practiced for thousands of years. Its roots trace back to Indian Astrology and Roman fortune tellers. You will be able to tell a lot about your life by learning the basics of palm reading.
How to Read Palms
You will have to decide which palm to read before beginning. Traditional palm readers usually read the right hand for men and the left hand for women. However, there is a growing belief that you must look at both palms on every person. In this belief, the left hand is the gateway to the natural persona of a person. The right palm exhibits what person has achieved with their gifts and personality. This switches if a person is left handed.
You will also have to know all of the major lines on a hand and what they represent before you can read palms. The major lines on your palm include:
