BROKEN HEART LINE
Normally, the heart line begins on the side of the palm on the pinkie side. It stretches horizontally to somewhere around beneath the middle or index finger. However, in some, this heart line appears very different, or even broken into two or three lines.
A heart line shows how we feel, or show our emotions. It also depicts how sentimental we are (or aren’t). A smooth and long curved line would suggest effortless emotional thinking and someone sentimental. (See types of heart line here).
A broken heart line can manifest in difficulties expressing feelings or someone who is subject to mood swings or emotional stress.
There may be a period in their life when there is a significant change such as a broken relationship. These people might often feel like they are not emotionally connected and feel phases of unattachment.
CHAINED HEART LINE
A string of small islands throughout shows a moody, changeable and hypersensitive nature. Sometimes the chained look is brought about by mineral deficiencies in the diet.
It can also show depression; look at the head line for breaks, islands or one that dips all the way down to the Mount of Moon. Either way, the subject should try to calm down, they are overly nervous.
If the chained appearance is only on the part of the line, it can represent a period of indecisiveness about their feelings. Some see the chained line as a sign of a fickle flirtatious or unfaithful lover. A heavily chained line can suggest actual heart problems.
BRANCHES ON HEART LINE
Rising branches reflect idealistic and happy experiences and a keen interest in the opposite sex. Drooping branches show insecurity or disappointments, poor quality relationships or losses.
If there are drooping lines along its entire length, it can indicate a sense of failure or negative thinking with regards relationships or the fact that they may be restless or hypersensitive, possibly even prone to depression.
FORK AT THE END REACHES HEAD LINE
A fork at the end of the heart line, with the lower section touching the head line, the individual prefers everything to run smoothly and avoid confrontations whenever possible. If a part of the heart line touches the life line, like a branch or line connecting the two, it can be due to a secure connection with the parents.
In some situations, where the family was not close, this connecting line can be a yearning for the closeness. Someone with this type of line may need much emotional support. If a branch from the Heart line reaches past the life line, into the Mount of Mars, it suggests a loss of a relationship.
DIRECTION OF BRANCH INFLUENCE LINES
The thicker end of a line is its starting point. The branch lines almost always taper at the end. See example – One and two are dropping lines, three and four are rising.
A star mark would suggest an emotional upset or shock.
Bar lines depict obstacles in unions or restlessness.
A cross is also an obstacle but for a more extended period than the bar line.
