The Head Line Reveals a Great Deal About You

This website is dedicated to everything to do with palm reading. You can type whatever you’re looking for into the search field to learn about palm lines and hand analysis. If something is missing, please let me know in the comments below. Today I want to let you know about the broken head line. Not everyone has perfectly formed regular lines on the hand, and sometimes they are broken or in an unusual shape. The usual line is a crease that 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.

The head line is one of the primary lines on the hand. This line is one of the most significant on the palm because it reveals a great deal about your essence of you. It gives clues as to how you think and manage (mentally). It can show whether you are struggling or sailing along smoothly and how you make decisions.

If the head line happens to have a break or more than one break in the line, it disrupts the flow of thought. The main issue with the interrupted line is that it can produce a lack of concentration or bad memory. Sometimes it’s a sign of poor self-control. The person might have times in their life when they are indecisive. If the break overlaps the second part of the line, it can relate to change, especially mentally. It’s essential to check the other lines and marks for clues.

The energy of the lines

Imagine the lines as energy; if there is a disruption, the energy needs to come from somewhere else. The perfect example is the hand in the image below. The head line is practically missing altogether. The little bit of line that is there has a significant break. I had many conversations with the owner and learned she is passionate and set in her ways. She has strong opinions and is surprisingly cold-hearted, considering her mental energy runs mainly through the heart line.

Overlapping broken lines

The broken head line that overlaps the second part of the line can signify 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.

A clean break with no overlap can suggest a physical head matter, but there will be evidence elsewhere. If there are islands on the other lines, it is rarely an encouraging sign. It can mean that the effects cover many areas of life. However, an island on the head line is, more often than not, merely a sign of defective memory. Physical head matters could be anything from migraines, teeth, and ear problems to injuries.

If the head line breaks repeatedly

If the line breaks repeatedly, it shows a lack of mental stability. The person might be unpredictable, erratic or suffer constant headaches, poor health or nervousness. They are unreliable and impractical if together with pointed fingertips, 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 any connecting branches, squares or any other line brings them together. If so, they heal the line making it less severe. Take note of the line’s condition (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 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), passion or sentiment rules over rational thoughts. These people prefer to make decisions based on what they feel, not what they think. An emphasized heart line can be impulsiveness which may lead to mental exhaustion.

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

Island on the head line

Sometimes the break rejoins, forming what looks like a broken island. It shows a weakening of the line, and it affects mental ability. It can be a sign of worry, uncertainty, illness, depression, loss of memory, or merely a period of fatigue, altering the ability to think clearly. Someone who suffers from migraines might also have this mark. Look at the quality of the line after the island. Once the line resumes to normal, so should the issues.
