Life Line Types in Palmistry and What They Mean

Life line types and what they mean.

The life line types on the palm vary. Most lines, however, arc¬†around the thumb ball and end at the wrist. The length and quality of this line tell certain character traits and constitution. It is a line which in palmistry is the most interesting one on the palm. People like to think that the line refers to ones’ actual life. In a way, it does. The line should, ideally, be long, deeply etched and unmarked. However, it is unlikely that many people in this modern day and age have a line like that.


The life line types:

  • A long and deeply etched line which reaches the wrist (if unmarked) show vitality, routine, stability and motivation.
  • A short line, if also weak or thin in its appearance reveals a lack of stability or energy levels. Often it is a mark of unstable early family life or a change in the middle of life.
  • A life line that appears faint depicts a delicate or sensitive constitution, common on those who are not physically active
  • A line which curves outward towards the Mount of Moon describes someone who loves to travel or is very outgoing.
  • A line which runs closer to the thumb is someone who lacks interest in physical activities and may be cold or selfish. They prefer to stay close to home.
  • When a life line appears to have a break in it, look for sister lines on one or both sides of the line, these lines give support to an otherwise uncertain period.
  • A line on the inside of the life line would show family support and on the outside from a non-related source. If the break happens to overlap another part of the life line, it often indicates a planned change.
