The Short Guide To Palm Reading

If you look at the palm of your left and right hand, you’ll notice lines. These aren’t age wrinkles or proof of hard work, but rather the lines of our lives. Cheiromantics is the scientific name for the study of the palm, and although this is a complete and complex bible, we decided to try to simplify and explain four main lines: the heart line, the head line, the life line and the fate line. Here is a brief guide to palm reading!


What hand should you be looking at?

The right hand usually represents the practical mind - elements such as livelihood, success, and personality. The left hand, on the other hand, represents the emotional mind - feelings, love, family and children.

Some suggest that every person should read their dominant hand. Some say that women should read their left hand and men their right hand, but there isn’t a set rule. Most experts suggest looking at both hands to get a complete picture.

As stated, Cheiromantics is a complex theory based on the cross-referencing of different data represented by the various lines. However, there are some basic characteristics that can teach you a thing or two about yourself and your life.

Reading the heart line

The heart line represents the emotional side of our life and reading it will help you understand what kind of person you are.

The heart line touches the life line - your heart tends to break easily.
A straight line parallel to the life line - indicates great emotional stability.
Heart line connects to the head line - your brain and heart work together.
A high heart line, close to your fingers - Your brain is more dominant than your heart.
A line that matches your romantic partner’s line - indicates a perfect match. 
Broken line or small lines that cross it – you’ve experienced emotional trauma in the past.
The end of the line sits under your index finger - You are very picky romantically.
Straight and short - You don’t need romance or you have difficulties in relationships.
Long heart line - You are perceived as loving and giving with all your heart.

Reading the head line

The head line represents your cold and calculated side. This is the side of you that is responsible for conscious decisions, for interpersonal communication and for reason.

Reading the fate line

This line is considered the most mystical of all the lines on the palm. This line touches upon the delicate balance between external circumstances, or fate, and the circumstances of which we have control over.
