Chinese Palm Reading

Palm reading is believed to have originated in India as long as 5000 years ago. It spread to China in 3000 BC and Chinese palm reading commenced. It extended to Europe and other parts of the world. People have devoted years in finding out what the lines on palms read. They have been studying on how to interpret the palm lines. There lengthy research has led to an art form of palm reading.

Chinese palm reading believe that hands, feet and head present a person’s profile and that the appearance of a person’s hand can be an indicator to his destiny. They think that the lines on a person’s palm provide hints about his/her fortune. Palm line reading is all about the lines and the patterns found on the palm. It is linked to the shape and structure of your hand and the surface texture of your palm.

Let us begin with the type of your hand. Look closely at the back of your hand. Is the skin smooth or is it worn. Soft skin indicates you have a good taste and enjoy a luxurious lifestyle. Worn texture is indicative of people who take risks, like to accept challenges and always fight till the end. Now look at your fingers. If they are smooth, you are instinctive and self-confident. In case your fingers lack the smoothness, you are creative and thoughtful.

Chinese palm reading associates an element for each type of the hand. Slender palms are linked to wood and it is said that wood and water industries suit best to people with such palms. Square shaped palms are associated with metal and metal and earth industries suit people with square palms. Heavy palms are linked to earth element and people with such palms do well in earth and fire industries. Elongated palms are associated with fire and fleshy palms with water.

Go further ahead to the tips of your palm and observe your nails. Long nails say that you are artistic. Spoon shaped nails say that you always choose the best in life. Uneven nails warn you of a difficult time in future and prompt you to learn from your mistakes. Now, something more on the fingers… If your index finger is longer than the ring finger, you are a leader. In the opposite case, you are creative. You market yourself and like people to praise you.

Life Line, Head Line and the Heart Line are the main lines of your palm. Palm line reading revolves around these lines and those branching from them. The Life Line starts between your thumb and index finger and encircles the base of your thumb to reach the wrist. The Head Line is above your Life Line and runs horizontally across the palm. Your Heart Line starts at the left end of the palm below the little finger and slants towards the middle and index fingers. Your head and heart lines have a significant relationship. If they touch, it means you are sensitive and appear mild to people. If they are tied together, your personality might undergo changes. A large gap between them indicates selfishness.

Look at your palm again. Your Life Line is indicative of your lifetime and health. A wide curve indicates you love traveling while a narrow curve says that you cannot live far from home. Lines branching out upward from the Life Line indicate a person who puts great effort in work. A smooth and long Life Line talks of a smooth and long life. Splits in the line are indications of illness.Take a look at your Head Line now. In case your Head Line is short, you should not take risks in life. In case you have a long Head Line, there’s great news! You have a very good intellectual ability and are gifted with the uncommon common sense. Wrinkles crossing the Head Line indicate that at times you have difficulty in concentrating and you cannot make up you mind. The Head Line thus represents your personality and emotional behavior.

Heart Line rules the emotional and romantic side of your personality. You will get even more interested in you Heart Line after knowing that it is linked to your marriage! If your Heart Line has a split that points upwards, you will have a happy marriage but if its split end points downward, you will take to short romances. Breaks in this line indicate that you won’t stay for long in one relationship. The length of your Heart Line is directly proportional to your emotionality.

There are certain symbols on palm that bespeak success or failure in life. Fish symbolize prosperity and triangles symbolize success. Feathery lines indicate anxiety. Islands are believed to be inauspicious.
