Cross Mark on the Palm Explained

cross on the palm

A cross mark on your palm can have a significant meaning in palmistry. However, if your palm has many lines on it, it might be challenging to decipher if you have a cross, or merely the crossing of other lines? The difference is that the cross is made up of independent lines and not the coincidental clashing of some of the main lines. In this article, I explain what all the crosses mean.

Cross mark on the palm lines

A hand with coarse skin and only a few lines is unlikely to have a cross mark on the padded areas. If you have a palm that has many crosses all over it, it shows your sensitive nature and someone who stresses easily. On the lines, the crosses show barriers, adverse circumstances or sudden events and so are usually an unfavourable mark to find. If found on the fate line, it can relate to finances, the career or risk regarding the loss of material things.

cross marks on the lines

On the success line, the cross depicts a risk to the reputation. Maybe the subject has neglected to stay honest in their field of work and got caught out! Or it might be possible that they got some bad publicity for their operations.

The cross on the heart line suggests an obstacle regarding the emotions, such as a traumatic experience. But it’s not a sign by itself. Look for more clues on the life line to see if it’s clear. If the head line is weak, broken or dips down to the Mount of Moon, the subject might be emotionally unbalanced.

On the head line, a cross mark shows self-deception. What that means is the person might be lying to himself, believing in something that isn’t true. As an example, he might believe everything is well in his relationship, even though deep down inside he knows it’s not.

Cross on the life line

On the life line, the cross depicts an obstacle of a longer duration, such as financial hardship. Check the fate line for marks like the island. Also see if there is a cross on the health line, which can point towards illness. Keep in mind, not one mark predicts any illness by itself. Look at the colour of the nails, condition of the skin and any other abnormal things like warts.

cross meanings on the mounts of the palm


Please note that these are mostly traditional meanings and do not often agree with modern palmistry.

A clear cross mark on the Mount of Mercury under the pinkie finger is a traditional mark of dishonesty. Generally, it can depict problems with a business or in communication. On the Apollo mount, under the ring finger, the cross can signify a loss of reputation or frustration in the pursuit of success.

If you find a faint cross under the mount of Apollo and Mercury, (between the two) just beneath the heart line, it is said to be a sign of a new home arrival or purchase of one. These types of crosses can come and go.

The Saturn mount under the middle finger with a cross mark is a kind of challenging situation. Be careful not to confuse this mark with a combination of the crossing of the Girdle of Venus and fate line. A cross on the Jupiter mount under the index finger is traditionally a mark of a happy marriage with a supportive partner.

On the inner and outer Mars, the cross depicts a quarrelsome and aggressive disposition. On the Mount of Venus, (ball of the thumb), it can mean unhappiness in love. A cross on the Mount of Moon shows an overactive imagination or a tendency to exaggerate. It can also depict the danger of travel or fear of travelling over water.

The Mystic Cross Mark on the Palm

The mystic cross is often difficult to understand. It is a cross that lies between the head and the heart line in the region of the plain of Mars. It must be a cross standing on its own, not made up of other lines. If present in its perfect form, some believe it as a sign of psychic or metaphysical gifts. Keep in mind that if it is a stress line crossing over a fate line, it is not a mystic cross. Ideally, it sits between the lines, not touching any other line.

If the cross is a branch from the heart line to the head line, and vice versa, it is the connection of the emotions to the mind. With the branch from the head to the heart line, the mind is also tapping to the heart. Therefore, the subject might combine the rational with what they feel when making decisions.
