Read your own hand palm lines today and know who you are.

The art of reading hand palm lines was believed to be developed by the Tibetans and Greeks. However, all learned it from the Indians. Palmistry is sometimes associated with the Gypsies, who were originally from India, and at one point it was believed that they brought the art to Western Europe. There is evidence, however, that palmistry was already taught in the West in the Middle Ages and that Gypsies arrived later in the 15th century.

Here is a brief overview of how palmistry is done and how you can take advantage of it by your own self. The first thing a palm reader looks at is the shape of the hand, to see if it is square or long and if the fingers are longer than the palm or vice versa. Then the palm reader determines the proportions and shape of the fingertips. There are four shapes of fingers that relate to four temperaments:

1. Square: careful

2. Pointed: sensitive

3. Conical: flexible

4. spatulate: dynamic

Then there are the lines in the palm to consider (see figure 1). Besides the minor lines, there are 4 main lines:

1. heart line: tells about your emotional life

2. headline: indicates the quality of your reflection

3. lifeline: shows your vitality and health (not, the length of your lifeline does not  determine the length of your life)

4. destiny line: indicates whether you are settled or not.

In general, deep, straight lines tend to be positive, and burst, wavy, or shallow lines are less positive. In addition, there are the mounds on the palm, with eight main mounds, each associated with one of the seven planets of the ancients, except that there are two for Mars, one upper and one lower (see figure 2 for positions).

1 Venus: health and sexuality

2 Moon: sensitivity and imagination

3 March: courage and humor (divided into an upper and lower mound)

4 Jupiter: selfishness or generosity

5 Saturn: ambition

6 Apollo or Sun: taste and self-image

7 Mercury: reflection and spirit

Larger mounds show overdeveloped features and flat mounds are underdeveloped features. Medium-sized mounds are best. The palmist also has to consider all those fun little brands like Xs and Os and how they interact with everything else. You can see the top five minor marks in Table 2.

Although different palm kernels may have different ideas about what these things mean in the hand, traditionally a palmist would look at every part of the hand in this way and tell a person about their character and life in the past and in the future. At worst, palmists have tried to tell clients when they will get married, how many children they will have when they will get sick, and how long they will live. It's not good.

Any reputable palmist will tell you that the lines in your hand will change as you grow older and make changes in your life. Therefore, your future will be different as your hand changes.

This can be seen in the differences between the left and right hands. The less used hand will show the traits present since childhood while the dominant, most used hand will show changes since then.

A palm reading, therefore, is really about the present and a good palmist will help a client understand their strengths and weaknesses and help point out where to work to improve their life.

Modern palmists realize that it is useful to discuss the different parts of the hand, but they argue that the art depends on the placement and view of the hand as a whole. For instance, when someone smiles, it is not something that just happens with the mouth; the whole face is involved. Good palmists will look at the hand as a face and see if it is smiling or frowning.
