Palm Reading Chart

Palm Reading Basics

In palm reading, the hand that you use most often is first read and then the other hand is read. The generally accepted rule is that the dominant hand or the hand you use more often, is the hand which determines your future and the other non dominant hand is used to determine the past or hidden traits. Palm readers normally check the following properties of the palm for their reading, before consulting the palm reading chart.

Shape of the Hands
The shape of hands is the first thing that is noted and depending on the shape of your hand you could have a earth, fire, air or water element hand. See table below for elaboration.

Hand Type Hand Shape
Earth Hand Broad square fingers and palms, with rough skin
Fire Hand Square or rectangular palms with pink skin or flushed skin
Air Hand Long fingers with square or rectangular palms and dry skin
Water Hand Short oval shaped palms with long flexible conical fingers

Lines on the Palm
The lines on the palm are used to determine the future or personality traits of an individual. The three main lines that are considered are the head line, the heart line and the life line (see the detailed palm reading diagram) while reading a palm. The table below gives complete details on the major lines on the palm and how they can be interpreted on the palm reading chart. Along with these major lines a few minor lines are also viewed including the marriage and lifeline, travel lines and the girdle of Venus.

Heart Line
The heart line curves upward to end between middle and index finger A caring and understanding personality
The heart line curves to end below the index finger An adventurous and artistic personality
The heart line is straight A selfish personality
Head Line
The head line curves downwards A sensitive personality with an inclination towards literature and fantasy
Head line curves upwards towards the little finger An aptitude for Maths, Business Studies and Logic
Broken head line or no head line Has varying interests or a specialist in certain fields respectively
Life Line
Life line that curves completely around the thumb Good physical and mental health
A lifeline that is forked upwards A positive attitude towards life
A lifeline that is forked downwards A pessimist and an introvert
The Destiny or Fate Line
Absent fate line A comfortable but uneventful life ahead
Fate line that is unbroken and runs straight across A successful life ahead
A fork in the destiny line Indicates a great amount of wealth in store

The mounts on the palm are also considered while foretelling the future using palm reading. These mounts are derived from Greek palmistry and are named after Greek gods and goddesses. They are the 'mounts' of flesh below each finger. Their location and interpretation are shown in the table below.

Mounts Location on the Palm Interpretation
Mount of Venus Located below the thumb Signifies love, beauty and artistic sense
Mount of Jupiter Located below the index finger Signifies fortune, leadership skills and a bent towards education and religion
Mount of Saturn Located below the middle finger Signifies patience, hard work and practicality
Mount of Apollo Located below the ring finger Signifies energy, creativity and compassion
Mount of Mercury Located at the base of the little finger Signifies business skills, wit and versatility
Luna Mount or Mount of the Moon Located at the lower part towards the end of the palm Signifies creativity, passion and shyness
