Broken Fate Line Meaning in Palmistry

Broken fate line or (career line) meanings

The fate line is a crease on the palm which vertically runs towards the middle finger. This line is not typically one line, so the broken fate line is not necessarily serious. The fate line is also referred to as the Saturn line or career line. We look at the fate line for various clues when doing a palm reading. It is an excellent indicator of change in the life of its bearer. It is not just about the career or money, and it also reflects the persons’ drive or direction in life.

A straight fate line that runs from the base of the palm to below the middle finger can denote an unchanging and steady career. These individuals know who they are; they are self-motivated, serious and in control of their decided path in life from an early age. The long fate line from the wrist can also depict a hard worker. These types have boundaries and tend to stick to their plan of life.

However, what if you do not have a straight fate line or if there is a broken fate line?

A broken fate line, but one that has a second line with an overlap, shows a planned change in career or lifestyle. If the breaks do not overlap, and there is a space before the line continues, (missing section) it is an unexpected change. It may be a time when progress regarding career or goals has come to a standstill.

During the period of the missing section of the fate line, the motivation and purpose are no longer justifiable. It may be a loss of a job or a change in outlook. Look for clues on the other lines for the reasons. The heart line gives clues to the emotional state, and the head line shows the mental state. A corresponding island on the life line might indicate a health issue.

Placement of the break – Timing the broken fate line

If the break occurs at the head line, it shows that around the age of thirty-five, the individual has decided to change their career through a wise decision. The fate line doesn’t always refer to the career, it can also depict a change in life such as marriage, children, divorce etc.

If the break is at the heart line, the change is for something more in line with their life purpose., like what the person love’s to do. The break in the heart line area suggests the change occurs around the age of 48-52.

Breaks in the fate line before the head line, that is, in the middle of the palm or below. Shows uncertain goals, possibly changing their mind or a change in life such as re-location.

Branch lines from the fate line

A branch line rising towards the mount of Jupiter (under the index finger) shows the achievement of ambition through skill, hard work, and study. The fate line itself should end under Saturn. A branch line rising towards Mount Apollo (under the ring finger) is particularly lucky, it depicts success through talent or creativity, often meaning good fortune.


A gently curving fate line indicates a gradual change in career or life. The sharper the curve, the more drastic is the change. If the line veers from side to side, it predicts that the ambitions are not well directed and there is a waste of energy in efforts throughout their life.


A double fate line, depending on how close they run to each other can refer to two similar occupations, hobbies or study alongside a career at the same time. If the lines are close, it can depict a successful business partnership and may even represent a husband or wife who is considered very supportive. Whatever the case, the second line suggests a duality. It acts as a support line, giving strength to the main part of the line. The second formation sometimes shows up as a small fork leading into two clear directions.


Having no fate line does not mean the person has ‘no career’ or that they are unmotivated, but instead, it is more likely that they prefer to take life as it comes, not bound by any demands, responsibility or purpose.

As an example, a man who is a self-employed salesperson, with goals and motivation to run his own business, might not necessarily have a fate line. The probable reason for this may be because his skin may be coarse, he plans his days one day at a time and no strict boundaries for his career.

Another example comes from a woman whom I know. She did not finish her schooling, leaving at the age of sixteen to earn herself a living. Also, she did not have any significant plans or ambitions to be successful, instead wanted independence. She had no fate line, yet she was a regular and steady worker. It is possible, however, that she has one now, as these lines can form when situations change.

The common aspect that I noted about both people is that they have no interest in worldly achievements or obligations. They accept whatever comes along yet still take responsibility for their role in life seriously.

Usually, when someone does have a full and straight line, the person has set himself life goals with purpose but with conventional boundaries which can limit the diversity as far as occupation is concerned. It does not, by any means show a perfect career.
