Basic Palmistry Part 2
Palmistry, also known as Chiromancy, is the art of telling
a person's fortune by looking at the lines and bumps on
a person's hand. However, since the 1920s, the art of Chiromancy
has come a long way. Chirognomy is a related science in which
hand shape; finger shape, fingers, nails and the texture and
consistency of the flesh are examined in order to get a glimpse
into the inner workings of the personality.
Dermatoglyphics is the study of ridge patterns and formations
found on the fingertips and palm itself to detect and diagnose
inherited diseases. However here we are dealing with what I
would call the â€œRomany Reader Basicsâ€ of the Art.
In an earlier New Age Notebook called
Basic Palmistry I identified
the major lines and mounts of the human hand. In this article
we are going to examine other kinds of markings and characteristics
that are common indicators of personality, temperament and fate.
Bubbles and Loops
Bubbles and loops that occur on life lines, heart lines and
fate lines indicate significant episodes in your life or a life
that is broken by many odd experiences. Strong clean lines without
bubbles are always preferable if you are looking for a serene
and quiet life. Broken Lines - These usually indicate that a
life will be disrupted in an upsetting manner. A broken lifeline
can mean an early or tragic life. A break in the head line can
mean a period of insanity or mental illness.
Crosses and Cross-hatching
These marks on any mound or area of the hand often represent
stressful influences, events or people. Usually the influence
is a significant or important relationship. The deeper the line
the more traumatic or life-defining the experience is said to
be. The nature of the event is determined on which mound you
find the cross or cross-hatching. For instance, if you have
a lot of cross-hatching on your Mound of Lower Mars you may
encounter a lot of war or violence in your life. Crosses and
cross-hatching on your Mound of Apollo can indicate troubles
with career, confidence and success.
On the outer edge of the hand, just below the little finger
and the Mound of Mercury such marks are said to indicate how
many children are in your future. If horizontal lines or cross-hatching
occurs on your thumbs or fingertips it is a sure sign that you
are under too much stress. Attachment lines: These are lines
that occur above the heart line and wrap from the side of the
hand and extend out beneath the little finger. This is supposed
to indicate the number of significant relationships or attachments
you will have in your life.
A long horizontal line that is crossed by three shorter lines
indicates this. It is a symbol of natural healing abilities
and usually occurs on the mound of Mercury just below the little
If you find a square on your hand it means that you are a
teacher or natural born leader and meant to enlighten others.
The area of interest where you will excel is indicated where
it is placed on a mound. For instance, a square that is found
on the mound of Mercury indicates a career in teaching or education.
A square found on the Mound of Venus below the thumb can indicate
a nurse, doctor or healer.
Feathery Light Lines
These can be found all over the hand and are usually an indication
of failing health. If the lines travel up from the wrist to
the little finger it can indicate a chronic disease or disability.
X's: X's found anywhere in the palm usually indicate
travel. If it is found on either of the Mounds of Upper or Lower
Mars or on the plain of Mars it means traveling as a result
of war or a military career. An X on the mound of Venus (below
the thumb) means relocating for love and on the mound of Jupiter
an X can mean relocating for reasons to do with career advancement.
Triangles anywhere on the palm indicate a decent upbringing
and emotional or intellectual strength. This once again depends
which mound the triangle is found on. For example: a triangle
found on the Mound of Venus indicates emotional strength and
understanding when it comes to love. A triangle found on the
mound of Saturn beneath the third finger indicates incredible
physical and emotional endurance during times of trouble.
The Ring of Solomon
This is a line that circles the base of the Jupiter finger
(index finger) and is found in the hands of those who are said
to be psychic. It is also believed to represent royal blood
A star-shaped hatching of lines can mean that you will enjoy
especially good fortune wherever that star is located. For instance
if you have a star on your Mound of Venus, it can indicate fame.
A star on your Mound of Mercury can mean success at relationships.
Wherever you find a star on your hand, you are most likely to
find good fortune unless it is located on the mound of Saturn
beneath your third finger. In that case, it means a life of
arrogance and pride without the prizes.
