Important lines on the hand:Palmistry Lines

There are seven important lines on the palm of the hand. They are:

  1. Life line
  2. Head line
  3. Heart line
  4. Girdle of Venus
  5. Sun line
  6. Mercury line
  7. Fate line.

Palmists believe that almost all hands have three lines—heart line, head line and life line.

Palmistry Lines - LIFE LINE

People usually think that the life line would tell how long you would be able to live. This is not the case, instead of revealing that to you, the life line would indicate the quality of how you live your life. It also shows the amount of vitality, strength and energy you have for life.

  • A person who does not have a passion for life often spots a life line that runs close to the thumb.
  • A person passionate about life and who lives life to the maximum often spot a life line that is curved.
  • If the head line is more visible than that of the life line, it indicates that the person is more mentally active than physically.
  • People who have a delicate health often have a chained life line.
  • A person with a heart for travel often has life lines that are swinging outwards.

Life line is considered the most controversial line in palmistry. It starts from the edge of the palm above the thumb and runs towards the wrist forming an arc.

This line indicates the physical health, vigor and general wellbeing of the subject. It also represents the changes in life that may be caused by physical injuries, relocations  or cataclysmic events.

Palmistry Lines - HEART LINE

Palmistry not only tells what will happen in the future. It also is a way of finding out why things happen. The heart line would be able to provide insight into this. However, we can’t place a time on the events that are going to happen.

The first and the foremost line on human palm is the heart line. This line is located towards the top side of the palm just below the fingers. Some palmists claim that it starts from the edge of the palm below the little finger and runs across the palm towards the thumb. In some cases, the heart line may start below the fingers and run towards the outer edge of the palm.

As the name suggests, the heart line represents the state of human heart, both in physical and metaphorical sense. It indicates how strong and stable a person is. It also shows the emotional strength of the subject.

    In palmistry people who spot a curved heart line are believed to be more romantic. They also are of a more aggressive nature with love, they will demonstrate in ways to prove that they are in love.
    People whos palms show the straight heart line are more passive in their romance, and they are most content to be the receptor of love, tending to dwell in their love rather than wearing it out on their sleeve.
    If a person has a heart line that has a steep curve that ends below and between the middle and index finger, it is most likely that he or she has an intense sexual desire.
    If the heart line ends under the index finger, most probably the person is really choosy about who they want to go out with.
    It is uncommon to see people with heart lines that end under the middle finger. People who spot this heart line are most usually consumed by their need for love.
    People with this heart line usually have no romance, and are mostly consumed with a crude sexual drive.
    People with this heart line usually tend to be good welfare workers, as they have a heart for those unhappy people.
    Two or more branches show that the person has a number of different emotional sides in their nature.

Note: Palmistry research has shown that a successful marriage is often made up of partners who spot similar heart lines.

Palmistry Lines - HEAD LINE

The next in importance is the head line. It starts at the edge of the palm just below the index finger and runs across the palm towards its outer edge. The headline often joins the life line at the inception.

Head line indicates the mental state of the person. Is he interested in education? Is he communicative and intellectual, creative and analytical? Contrary to popular beliefs, the head line on a persons palm is often associated with how a person thinks and not how intelligent they are. Most head line tend to end some where below the ring finger.

    This head line is most commonly found in a person with thinking that is simple and direct to the point.
    Most commonly found in people who thinks and give a lot of thought before taking action on anything.
    Most commonly found in people who values and practice clear concentrated thinking. They are also happier when things are handled and solved practically.
    Most commonly found in people who like to create and put into use new ideas. These people tend to be more creative.
    Usually found in people who are highly strung emotionally as well as intellectually.
    A forked head line indicates that the person has the ability to see more than one point of view.
    Usually found in people who have a carefree and couldn’t care less attitude. They just go about doing whatever they like, not caring about what other may think of them.

Note: In palmistry a head line that starts under the index finger shows an excellent and brainy mind.
