Your future is in your hands – learn how to unlock your destiny with the ancient practice of palmistry
1 Pick your palm
There are several theories on what a palm represents, so when you have this clear in your mind, you can begin. Some believe that in women’s hands the left palm shows what you will receive throughout life, while your right reveals what you were born with. For men, it’s the other way around. There’s also the belief that the hand you use for writing represents your future, while the other shows your past.
2 Locate the lines
There are four main lines found on most palms. The first line is the heart line (the highest horizontal line going across), The second is the head line, which is the second horizontal line positioned below the heart line. The third is the life line, which takes the form of a curve stretching down towards your wrist. Below this is the fourth line (the fate line), which goes across the centre of the palm at the same angle as the head line.
3 Matters of the heart
Analyse your heart line. If it goes almost across your whole hand, you are content with your love life. If it’s across half of your palm, it means you are selfish when it comes to relationships. If you have a short line, you are impetuous and fall head over heels all too quickly. It can also be an indication that you are happy being single. If it’s straight, you are good at remaining calm and handling your emotions.
4 Head’s up
Your head line indicates how well you take in and hold on to information and your overall intelligence. A wavy line means you are a creative dreamer, while a straight line shows you have more of a sensible approach to life.
5 That’s life
Unlike common belief, your life line does not indicate how long you will live for. Instead, it highlights how busy it will be in terms of major life changes. Life lines close to the thumb will show a slow pace with little change, while curvy lines represent lots of energy.
