The head line is one of the primary lines on the hand

Today I want to let you know about the broken head line. Not everyone has the perfectly formed regular lines on the hand, and frequently this primary line appears to be a split, broken or unusual shape.

The usual shape of the head line is a crease which commences from the radial edge (thumb side) and travels at least halfway across the palm. Ideally, it is slightly curved and free from islands, marks and variations.

If it happens to have a break or more than one break in the line, it shows disruption to the flow of thought. The main issue with the interrupted line is that it can produce a lack of concentration or an inferior memory. Sometimes it’s a sign of poor self-control. The person might have times in their life when they are indecisive. It might also depict a time of change, so it’s important to check the other lines and marks for clues.

Overlapping lines

The broken line that overlaps the second part of the line can be a sign of mental exhaustion, inconsistent thinking, or a transformation in life attitude (mental outlook). If in the middle of the line, the timing would correspond with going through a mid-life crisis.

If the break is clean with no overlap, it can suggest an actual injury to the head or illness; but there will be evidence elsewhere such as the nails, life line or other indicators. If with islands on the lines, it is rarely an encouraging sign to see. However, it is more often than not, merely a sign of defective memory.

If the line breaks repeatedly, it shows a lack of stability in the mind. The person might be unpredictable, erratic or suffer constant headaches, poor health or nervousness. If with pointed fingertips, they are unreliable and impractical, especially if the head line reaches down to the Mount of Moon.

With each break, see whether it is amended by sister lines or by overlapping ends. Also, see if there’s any connecting branches, squares or any other line bringing them together. If so, they kind of heal the line making it less severe. Take note if the condition of the line (thin, thick, stars, dots or islands) after the break to see if the possible problem has or will be overcome. Also, where the end of the break reaches (like to a mount) can give more clues.


If the heart line is darker than the head line, and another line rises and merges into the heart line (or a branch from the line links to the heart line), it shows that rational thoughts are taken over by passion, sentiment or what is ideal. These people prefer to make their decisions based on what they feel, not what they think. When the heart line is emphasized like this, impulsiveness may lead to mental exhaustion.

In the image below, the head line is broken at the start, depicting some changes or problems at an early age. It might be related to family or early school years. The life line is joined to the head line, which shows some insecurity related to family. The end of the head line reaches towards the heart line which is not complete. It almost looks like a broken Simian line.
