Your hand changes throughout your life. The lines you see in your palm today are not quite the same as they were a year ago and probably very different from five years ago.
Although your hand gives an outline of your life, it’s only a tentative outline. You have the final decision on the course your life will take. Whether you want the position or not, you’re the captain of your own destiny.
Palmistry, like a doctor’s examination, is strictly a diagnostic reading. It can point out the forces that function within you, and it can point out the logical results of these forces. You can accept them as they are or begin to change them.
As with the Tarot, be very careful in your phrasing of what you see in a person’s palm. Some lines may show a particular area in which your subject has very serious problems. This should be presented as “an area of possible weakness and something for which you should be particularly watchful.”
On a few occasions you may encounter a particular combination of lines which indicates a premature death. If this is the case, don’t blurt out what you see. Rather, press the need for great care to avoid illness, accidents, violence or at all event the rest of the hand may seem to imply as possible causes.
Remember, palmistry is only a diagnosis it’s never a final pronouncement.
As a palmist, your attitude is of great importance. Never try to “second guess” your subject by adding on-the-identify observations and facts you know from beforehand. Only read the palm. Ideally you should know nothing whatsoever about the person you’re reading. Their hands and your intuition should be enough.
THE HEART LINE
The Heart Lines (various ending locaiongs)
The heart line governs our emotional lives and shows how we relate to others. It’s the major line nearest the fingers. It runs across the palm, starting under the little finger and usually ends in the area between the first and second finger.
Physical Heart line
If the Heart Line forms a gentle curve, starting under the little finger and ending between the first and second fingers, it’s known as the Physical Heart Line. People with Physical Heart Lines are generally able to express their feelings well. Although they suffer their proportion of ups and downs, they pick themselves up quickly and get on with their lives. They’re likely to express their feelings in a physical, assertive manner. You could say to someone with this kind of heart line:
“As your heart line ends right up under the fingers, it shows that you have an open character and can express your innermost feelings. You’re warm and affectionate. When things go wrong you manage to pick yourself up quickly.”
Mental Heart Line
The other kind of heart line is the Mental (or Humanitarian) Heart Line. This runs in a straight line right across the palm of the hand and does not curve at the end. People with Mental Heart Lines find it hard to express their innermost feelings. They’ll suffer in silence instead of make a scene. They’ll have plenty of romantic feelings which take precedence over shared sense. They’re very sensitive and need plenty of room around them.
You might say to these people:
“You have a heart line that comes straight across your palm. This is known as a Mental Heart Line, and makes it rather difficult for you to express your innermost feelings.
It will little by little become easier for you, but you have to work at it. You can be sensitive at times and possibly bottle things up a bit. You like people, but you need to have room around you at the same time.”
As this line governs the emotions it’s shared to find one with defects, as all of us have ups and downs at different times in our lives. The most shared visible signs of trauma are a series of islands on the heart line.
These islands indicate a period of difficulty. Generally, the problems grow out of a relationship. This makes it very easy to determine if someone had an unhappy marriage followed by a happy one. In this case, the earlier part of the person’s life (the part nearest the little finger) will have a multitude of islands, while the rest of the line will be clear.
The Heart Line’s end location is extremely important. Ideally, it should end between the first and second finger. This gives a balance between the ego (represented by the first finger) and the rest of humanity. People with this are realistic about their emotional life and don’t have impossible expectations.
If the line ends on or directly under the first finger, the person will be idealistic and easily hurt. Other people will seldom live up to their expectations, leading to frequent disappointments.
If the heart line ends on, or directly under the second finger, the person is inclined to be selfish and think only of themselves and their own personal gratification. They’ll without emotional involvement.
Often, you will find a heart line that forks in two directions at the end. This person has a complicate emotional character. He or she will see both sides of a situation.
The Girdle of Venus
Every so often you’ll find a Girdle of Venus. This line is often made up of a series of disjointed small lines. It runs similar to the Heart Line and is located between the Heart
Line and the fingers. This indicates an extremely sensitive and highly emotional person who may be unstable and neurotic.
