The Heart Line – Are you emotionally in control?
The heart line is the uppermost horizontal line on the palm; it represents how a person expresses their feelings and their attitudes towards relationships.
The basics of reading this line are the same as the head and life lines; that is by looking at its length, depth, and quality. The deepness of the line displays the depth of feeling. So, a curved line indicates emotion while a straight line shows control.
A line which rises between the index and middle fingers shows a passionate nature. These type show their feelings through action and they know what they want.
A straight and short heart line depicts a self-focused nature and a lack of emotional warmth.
An ideal heart line would be gently curved and end somewhere between the index and middle finger. If it also has a fork at the end, the person would have a naturally optimistic view in relationships; they have a balance between what’s ideal and what’s practical.
On some rare instances, a double heart line occurs on the palm. The extra line supports the heart line and strengthens the emotions.
Markings on the heart line.
Most heart lines are not flawless and regularly exhibit branches and markings. A rising branch can show happy times, and
I imagine if there were a perfect heart line with no flaws, it would show that the emotional experiences of the person’s life would not affect them deeply, possibly having an insensitive and unsympathetic nature.
Where the heart line sits on the palm can add to the meaning of this line.
When the line sits high (closer to the base of the fingers) the person is open-minded, but experiences regarding the emotions can be somewhat unrealistic. This type may require constant support from his/her partner.
A line which sits lower down closer to the head line, suggests an introspective personality showing caution about love but with the aid of reason and a realistic (but sometimes intolerant) approach to relationships. The emotions may lie deeper under the surface, and it may be difficult to express them.
