The arrow symbol or arrow sign is not something that a modern palm reader looks for. Most hand readers avoid even learning the symbols. I don’t often use symbolism because it makes the reading seem like mere superstition. However, it is interesting to know some of these signs, even if just for fun.
The method of palmistry which uses symbols is a part of ancient Indian palmistry. This style has become lost over the years, probably because they are so rare and maybe because they are not believable by modern understanding. However, I would like to try to keep some of them alive just for the sake of knowledge at the least.
Symbolic Meaning of the Arrow Sign
The arrow, or ‘hook’, has a symbolic meaning, and it comes from mythology’s famous archers who apparently manipulated the power of nature with their arrows. They believed that if they placed a God on the arrow, it became a better weapon for the task.
Symbolically, the arrow is a sign of perception and dedication. In palmistry, it depicts the qualities of patience and self-discipline when carrying out a religious duty. In the modern-day, it can refer to a holistic healer or therapist. You can interpret the arrow symbol like a trident. It can resemble the thunderbolt sign, the lotus, or spear.
Placement of the arrow sign
If the arrow symbol appears on a mount, or at the end of a line, it strengthens the positive qualities of line or mount. It is vital that the line doesn’t continue through the arrow, and that the tip is at the end. If the line continues, then the mark might be something else, like a drooping or rising branch line. The rising lines almost always denote a boost, an achievement or positive influence.
The easiest way to understand the symbols is to interpret them as a reflection of the person’s way of thinking. So, the sign on your hands tells us that at some point in the past, what you have done gives the result of the meaning of the symbol. It is not different from reading the lines in modern palmistry in the sense that they are a record of your past actions.
It may also be that you are presently using that behaviour. Each symbol might point to a significant part of your life. Do not read any symbol by itself, without reading any other lines. It is wise to compare other factors from the hands and lines.
Also, it takes a good deal of practice before one can claim to have found one of these rare signs. For example, you may find a symbol on a hand and see it as the subject leading a successful life. However, that person may be struggling financially, so it’s important to analyse the entire palm to understand the whole story.
Is Palmistry fortune-telling?
I do not see palmistry as fortune-telling. People still want to know their future from their hands, but the problem is that the hands show what is going on right now. Realistically the lines cannot predict the future. People make their own decisions in life. What they can tell you is that whatever you have done up until now, can show as a kind of consequence of what may come.
For instance, if you are not taking care of yourself, or if you are addicted to food or substances, your health may suffer down the track. Some indicators on the hands can tell of poor health. If you have the qualities of someone motivated and driven to succeed, then you are more likely to have the consequence of becoming successful.
What do the hands show?
The hands can show your strengths and your weaknesses. If you have features which depict weakness in the character, a hand analyst could tell you what weaknesses to work on to bring the desired result. Nothing is for sure, especially from one feature alone. Consider all aspects before making assumptions, because some elements balance out or cancel out others. As a rule of thumb so to speak, always look at the thumb. It is a critical factor in good reading.
