The following is an explanation of the different types of hands starting with the fingers.
Firstly the flexibility of the hand and fingers can point out characteristics of a person character.
• When someone?s fingers can?t be bent backwards it can suggest a honest but stubborn character.
• But when fingers can be bent backwards indicate a an impatient nature but at the same time the person
will generally be quite well balanced.
If someone?s fingers are wedge shaped it can indicate a very active and creative character.
While pointy fingers indicate someone who is artistic and creative and also very sensitive. Very often this person
is interested in religious matters or the occult.
When someone has square fingers it suggest an honest character but the person is not normally very original.
And finally tampering fingers will indicate a person who can be a dreamer but who very often has artistic talent.
Someone who has deeply cupped hands usually will not have much of a flair for business.
While a firm lean hand suggests an individual who is very economical.
Soft and flabby hands is s good sign of someone who prefers the easy life.
And a firm strong hand shows a dependable character.
The major lines across our hands-What do they mean?
The hand contains 6 lines that are of high importance. These are located on the palm of the hand.
Through reading these lines one can read and understand a persons character and their personality and the type
of path they will prefer in their lives.
The 6 lines are divided into two groups.
The two groups represent 3 major lines and 3 minor lines.
Of the three major lines they are
• The life line
• The head line
• The heart line
The minor three lines are:
1. The fate line
2. The Health line
3. The Sun line (also known as the Line of Apollo)
1. 2. 3.
In some cases people have all these lines but it is quite usual and certainly nothing to be alarmed about.
Depending on what other lines intersect these lines, other deeper understandings of the individual can be
It is important to remember that lines do change and that where a line starts and finishes is very important.
If the line of the life line curves around the thumb then this gives an
indication that the person has a great deal of psychical activity in their
If the person has a solid line it indicates a good pleasing life with good
If the line changes it thickness and depth it can indicate a changing life
with lots twists and turns.
If the line is higher, ie nearer the index finger, this will suggest how
ambitious a person is and how great their ability is to keep at a task
even if things get tough.
Lines that join up with the head line can shoe a rather timid and
cautious person, but if there is a gap between these two lines then the
person will be of the opposite and therefore will be act on their impulse
and be rather reckless.
But if the line runs in the direction of the mount of the moon then the
person is restless and would prefer to be in another place.
Broken and wavy life lines can indicate a weakness of some kind in
either the area of mental or physical capabilities.
while a line made up of chains indicates a poor disposition. A line that
has another line running close by it or parallel to it suggests a good
If the life line finishes in the fork it will show that the person will
depend on the kindness of other people in their old age.
A small gap between the head line and the life line shows that the
person is a bit restless and like to be active.
The wider the gap the more restless and active the person. It can also
indicate that they are impatient and may need to look at their behaviour.
If the head line actually joins up with the heart line at the start, then the
person may have a lot of real suffering ahead.
If the person has well defined and straight head lines this indicates clear
and sound judgement.
But if the line goes all the way to the edge of the palm then the person
may have some ruthlessness about them and will put business first and
If the heart line is very long then the person should be a very good
diplomat and have a high chance through this of achieving their goals.
If the line is short the person will no try to hard and will give up quickly
If the line is weak it indicates a person who is soft and rarely ever tries
A slightly wavy line shows a person who finds it hard to face the daily
demands in their life while a chained line shows the presence of mental
illness or a mental disability that may be coming in the future.
If the line sweeps down and finishes in the forks it is an indication of a
very smart person and if the line breaks then the person is very likely to
suffer from deep depression.
If the person has a strong heart line its shows they are capable for true
and faithful love.
If the line starts high it can suggest a jealous type. While a low start
suggests a serene and rational love, but if the line is to low to start it
If the person has a heart line that that joins a head line this suggests a
person who lets head rule his heart.
If their line starts right unde the mount of Saturn then the person will
usually encounter only one true and devastating love in their lives.
A wavy line shows a person is lacking in self confidence especially
when it comes to love. A chained line means a flirtatious nature and a
person who finds it hard to be faithful.
A duplicated line shows a long and not very happy affair. If there is a
line close to the heart line then there is a good chance that someone
close will die.
A person without a heart lien will have no love to spare for anybody
else but themselves.
