Palm reading is often dismissed as a parlor trick or a fortune-teller’s cash cow. But palmistry, to use the practice’s official term, is actually a very old form of divination. Palm reading can reveal what you’ve possessed within you since birth and what may lie ahead for you.
At first, pick a hand—but not just any hand; try focus on your dominant hand. To examine personal relationships, dreams, and emotional struggles, look at the other hand. Having trouble making out the lines? Cup your hand slightly under a bright lamp.
The Life Line
As the first of the three major lines, your life line is a big deal. It indicates your health and the path your life will take. But it does not predict when you’ll die.
This line’s depth determines the ease with which you’ll go through life. Upward branches in the line mean positive changes or recovery, while downward ones might suggest negative changes to come. A complete break in the line could mean an accident or a sudden or a massive change.
The Head Line
Short line (ending near the center of your palm) means that you’re a fast thinker who reaches conclusions without any trouble or doubt.
Long, straight line (extending across the palm, toward the pinkie) means that you often find yourself mulling things over before coming to a decision.
Line that splits in two predicts that you are sensitive to others. You can easily see someone else’s perspective. This means you may change your opinion now and then.
The Heart Line
Also known as the love line, the heart line is the last of the major lines in palmistry. Many believe this line only predicts your romantic love life, but it can actually reveal how you deal with your emotions and how you approach all matters of the heart, whether with a significant other, friend or family member.
A deeper line implies you invest a lot of time, meaning, and thought into your loving relationships, while a faint line means you’re more aloof or uninterested in love.
The Health Line
Although you should watch your life line for your overall health, the health line can indicate what you’re like as a healer.
You’re more likely to have a visible health line if you’re supportive or a natural caretaker — people in healing or service professions will probably have a clearer line, too.
