Palm Reading Diagram

Palm Reading Diagram - The Main Lines

In the art of palm reading, there are certain lines - the major lines that are considered to play very important role. They are:

This line begins from the space between the thumb and the index finger and runs down towards the wrist. It is the lowest main line as is clear from the palm reading diagram. A discontinuous life line indicates changes in life. If there is a break in this line in one hand, it means that a person may suffer from an illness from which he will recover soon. However, if there is a break in this line in both hands, it indicates a serious illness. Small lines running up to the life line represent good health and wealth, whereas, small branches running down indicate just the opposite. An ideal lifeline should be semicircular, thin deep and without too many branches. You can also refer to diagram of hand.

Line of Head
This line also starts from the edge of the palm between the thumb and index finger, but instead of curving towards the wrist it runs straight to the other side of the palm. A horizontal line of head stands for a logical mind with aptitude for mathematics and computers. On the contrary, an artistic inclination with romantic disposition is reflected by a sloping line of head. A short line indicates few interests. Such a person tends to specialize in some particular field. Broken line represents diverse interests and different jobs.

Line of Heart
It is the uppermost main line and it runs from the edge of the palm, a little below the little finger towards the index finger. A long and curved line stands for a warmhearted person, a straight line indicates a self centered character whereas, a short and faint line refers to a person who lacks the feeling of love. However, that does not mean that a person with a long and deep line is the ideal romantic. On the contrary, people with such a line are believed to be jealous and possessive.

Line of Fate
This line runs from the center of the bottom end of the palm towards the ring finger or the middle finger. Absence of this line represents a life free of struggles. The ideal line should be straight and unbroken as that stands for a successful life. If the line ends at head line it means the person will have strong relationships. The line ending at the heart line indicates that sacrifices need to be made for love. Chain like formations on the fate line indicates unhappy times.

Palm Reading Diagram - The Minor Lines

Health Line
Palmists believe that it is best not to have any health line at all as a strong line denotes wear and tear of the nervous system and a strong line with breaks indicates health and stress related problems. This line is most subject to change. Instead the lifeline is considered to be a better indicator of one's health and illness.

Marriage Line
It is situated on the mount of Mercury (at the base of the little finger). The closer it lies to the heart line, an earlier marriage it indicates. There may be more than one marriage line. However, the deeper and longer line(s) indicates marriage(s). Others stand for deep affection or affairs. Read more on palm reading: the marriage and lifeline.

Travel Lines
They stand for important trips taken and their impact in life. The stronger the line, the important the trip. Breaks in travel line indicate delay, whereas, a square on it shows protection during the trip. If travel line intersects with the lifeline, it means that the trip would be made due to health reasons or that health will be affected due to travel.

Girdle of Venus
It relates to emotional intelligence and people with this line are both creative and of a nervous and delicate temperament. People with this line show great enthusiasm in doing things of their interest but fluctuate between high and low spirit.

Palm Reading Diagram - The Fingers

Jupiter or Index Finger
A long index finger indicates ambition and leadership qualities. It reflects magnetism in the individual and ability to command over others. However, the drawback is that a person will be short tempered and quick to react when his authority is challenged.

Saturn or Middle Finger
The middle finger stands for balance and maturity in life. It reflects how good one is in dealing with responsibilities. The middle finger is the longest finger. If this finger is only 1/4 of an inch longer than the ring finger then it means that the person is wise. If the difference is larger than 1/4 of an inch then it indicates a life of struggle.

Apollo or Ring Finger
Ring finger or the finger of Apollo reflects love for aesthetics, creativity, a romantic and emotional disposition. If the ring finger reaches the bottom of the nail of the middle finger, then it reflects a balanced character. Shorter length reflects a person's inability to express his emotions whereas, if the ring finger crosses the base of the nail of the middle finger, then it means that the person expresses his emotions very easily and lacks caution in this regard.

Mercury or Little Finger
This finger stands for communication abilities and business acumen. The ideal length of this finger is that it should the base of the first phalange of the finger of Apollo. A shorter finger of Mercury indicates poor business skills and difficulty in communication. Conversely, if the little finger is longer than the ideal length, the person is believed to be good in business and communication.

A large space between the thumb and the index finger reflects a trustworthy personality. A well developed first phalange of the thumb indicates determination to achieve one's goals. However, if it is over developed or extra long as compared to the lower section, it reflects a stubborn and inflexible disposition. The lower phalange gives an idea of one's capability for logical reasoning. A short second phalange indicates lack of logic whereas, a second phalange which is longer than the first one means that there is a lack of proper will power to carry out one's tasks.
