Palmistry Basics - What do lines in our hand say?


When you meet someone new, it can be fun to "check it out" using different personality analysis techniques. Palmistry is an ancient practice and it can also be fun.

Here are some basics of palmistry that are easy to learn and understand, with a special focus on love, relations, Characteristics, and attachment. Here are the indications of love and marriage in palmistry.

Which hand should you read? One of the first questions people ask about palmistry is: Which hand are you looking at? Answer: Both, it depends.

Palmistry students distinguish between a positive and a negative hand. The right hand of the right-handed will be his active hand; The left hand is considered the inactive hand. Similarly, the active hand of a left human is the left hand; And his negative hand is the right hand.

In general, the passive hand is read for inherited characteristics and abilities.

Watch the active hand for changes in these inherited traits.

As a Rule of thumb, when the lines and marks on both hands are all different, it means the person has actively worked for self-development.

Hand size Remember to consider the size of the hand in relation to the size of the body.

In general, a large hand indicates to a person that they spend more time thinking than acting. A person with a relatively small hand is believed to be more active and spend less time thinking about what to do.

The shape of the hand There are four general shapes of the hand, and they are associated with the four elements air, earth, fire, and water:


Air hands

They are distinguished by square palms, long fingers, and thin, clear lines. These are the hands of the educated and sociable. They are often anxious and need change and stimulation, and most of them are mental in nature. As lovers, these people seek a mental relationship above all else. 

Earthly hands

They are seen as square palms, short fingers, firm or thick skin, and straight, clear, and deep lines. They are the hands of humble and practical people with strong vitality. They often have a strong attachment to nature and the outdoors. As lovers, they are generally reliable and straightforward. 

Fiery hands 

They are distinguished by long palms, short fingers, prominent clear lines, and strong, warm skin. These are the hands of adventurers and active people. As lovers, they are positive and confident, ready to take the lead.

Water hands

They are characterized by long palms, long fingers, many fine lines that are not always clear, and smooth, hydrated skin. Such hands indicate a creative and emotional person. As lovers, they are sensitive, vulnerable, a bit naive, and focused on attention and care.

There are many considerations regarding the length of the palm, as well as the size, shape, and length of the fingers. This branch of palmistry is called chirognomy. There are different types of hand shapes, including 

Malaga, square, psychic, knotted. Here are some guidelines for determining palm and finger size:

When the vertical and horizontal, both the measurements of palm are all almost equal, it is considered a square palm.

A long palm is when its vertical measurement is longer than its horizontal measurement.

Fingers are taken as long fingers when the length of the middle finger is equal to or greater than three-quarters of the length (height) of the palm. 

Fingers are taken as short fingers when the middle finger is less than three-quarters of the length of the palm.


How flexible is the thumb? Thumb flexibility is believed to measure how well a person can adopt. The more flexible the thumb, the easier the character will be. Lack of flexibility indicates a stubborn person.

Does the thumb have a "waist"? If the thumb narrows into the primary phalanges of the thumb, the person is believed to use tact and diplomacy in dealing with others.

Relative thumb length is considered by some to be an indicator of fidelity. A longer thumb is believed to indicate stronger personalities who are loyal to others and themselves.

Lines on the palm

The palm generally consists of major lines, secondary lines, and minor lines.

A palm with several fine lines in addition to the main ones indicates a rather complex and sensitive personality, especially vulnerable to external influences and fears. In general, the fewer lines, the more visible the person is. These people live their life in a more direct and simple way. 

Main lines: 

In general, there are three prominent lines on the palm. These are the main lines. In the palm on the right, the upper horizontal line that ends at point A is the heart line. This line indicates feelings, so it is of particular interest to palmists as an indicator of love. The higher this line, the more emotional a person is, the more often they are jealous. The heart line through the hand indicates a person who is very emotionally in control. The heart line that curves up toward the Jupiter (index) finger indicates a warm, reasonable, and caring nature in relationships. The crosses and discontinuities in the heart line indicate periods of sadness and pain in love.

The middle horizontal line at B is considered as the headline. This line indicates what kind of intelligence a person has. The distance between the beginning of the headline and the beginning of the lifeline, if any, indicates the level of caution a person has. When these lines are initially joined, the person is somewhat cautious and Sometimes nature is scary. The further apart, the more confident and risky the individual is.

The curved line that generally rotates from near the base of the palm to the point between the thumb and forefinger at point C is the lifeline. In relation to relationships, the wide line of life, which leaves a lot of space for Mount Venus, indicates the presence of a person who is expansive and gives nature in love. Close the lifeline is to thumb, the less liberal a person is with his or her energy and time.

An interesting secondary line related to relationships is called the attachment line. Some call these lines marriage lines. These lines appear just above the heart line (above A). The light and subtle horizontal lines found here are believed to indicate matters that are not deep engagements. A long, clear line indicates a happy, long-term marriage or commitment. When there is more than one long and deep line, the bottom line is believed to describe the previous relationship in a person's life. 

The Mounts

There are several mounts in different positions on the palm and they are connected to the planets. Mount Venus is of special interest to those looking for signs of love in the palm of their hand. This facility is adjacent to the thumb and within the curved lifeline. In general, the meet here refers to the love of pleasure. A firm, fat mountain of Venus indicates a strong sexual nature, and a flabby mountain here shows a low level of sexual vitality.

The prominent horizontal lines on the mountain of Venus are believed to indicate a person who has a strong charm for lovers. Many fine lines running in different directions on this mountain (it often looks like a web) indicate a very complex person in the field of love. The changeable and disturbing personality can frustrate lovers. In general, many fine lines here indicate a person who is easily influenced by external forces. It can be easy for this person to be fooled by their partners. The triangle on this mountain is believed to indicate a person who may have extramarital affairs, and the crescent (moon) shape here indicates a person with strong powers of seduction.
