Palmistry is also called palm reading. It is about telling the future and nature of a person by reading the lines on the palm of a person. The origin of palm reading is believed to be ancient astrology of India.
A person’s palm texture tells about a person’s personality. A person whose palm texture is soft is known to be sensitive; and if the texture is coarse, the person is said to be harsh. If the hand of a person is flexible, he is said to be an adjustable person in any surroundings. If the fingers are flexible, he is said to be a person who is ready to face challenges. The nails of a person also tell about a person’s personality. If a person has long nails, which are pointed at the ends, the person is said to be creative. If he has short nails, the person is supposed to be very organized. Palms color has nothing to do with astrology. But if a persons hand is pink color, he is said to have good health.
The portions which are raised under the fingers are known as mounts of the palm. The study of these mounts is called chirognomy. Mounts play a significant role in palmistry. Some of the qualities which are connected with the mounts are as follows:
• A person, who comes under the mount of Jupiter, are ambitious, they love nature and also leadership qualities.
• A person, who comes under the mount of Saturn, is strict, sorrow and has wisdom.
• A person, who comes under the mount of Apollo, has intelligence, successful and is artistic.
• A person, who comes under the mount of Mercury, is level headed, business minded and is also selfish.
• A person, who comes under the mount of Venus, has qualities like passion, sympathy and love.
• A person, who comes under mount of Moon, is cold, imaginative and selfish.
The lines of the palm are very important in palm reading. The three most important lines are heart line hand astrology, life line and head line. The heart line shows the emotional characteristics of a person. In addition, it also tells about the problems associated with the heart and personal relationships. The area from where the heart line begins tells about a person’s inclination towards love. The shape and the length of the line are associated with feelings.
The life line is all about a person’s life. In addition, it also tells about a person’s nature and potential health issues. The way the life line curves on the palm is a sign of how a person handles his life, and it is also indicative of health. The length will tell how long a person will survive.
The head line is associated with intellect. It is also connected to psychological and mental problems that a person may have in his or her life. The distance of the head line from the heart line tells about a person’s luck and good fortune. It is also a line that can tell about a person’s memory.
There are other lines on the palm that are used for palm reading and they include marriage line, fame line and the girdle of Venus.
