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, including the Mystic Cross.
Too many crosses on the palm?
A hand with coarse skin and only a few lines is unlikely to have a cross mark on the mounts (the palm’s padded areas). But if someone has a palm with many crosses all over it, it denotes an emotional worrier. These highly strung people have a complex nature prone to psychosomatic disorders.
Cross mark on the main palm lines
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 mark on the Apollo (success) line
On the Apollo 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.
Cross on the heart line
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 on the life line and head line to see if they’re clear. If the head line is weak, broken or dips down to the Mount of Moon, it can denote emotional imbalance.
Cross Mark on the Head Line
On the head line, a cross mark can be an indicator of a mental block, obstacle or 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 or difficult period, 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/nodules.
CROSS MARK ON THE PALM MOUNTS
Cross on the Mercury Mount
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.
Cross Mark on the Mount of Apollo
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.
Cross on the Saturn Mount
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.
Cross Mark on the Mount of Mars
On the inner and outer Mars, the cross depicts a quarrelsome and aggressive disposition. Lori Reid describes the cross on the outer Mars as unfavourable and an indication of antagonistic (hostile) influences.
Cross Mark on the Mount of Venus
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 challenging to understand. It is a cross that lies between the head and the heart line in the plain of Mars. It must be a cross standing on its own, not made up of other lines such as the fate line.
If the cross is present in its perfect form, it can denote an interest in complementary health techniques and esoteric (mysterious) topics. Some people believe it as a sign of psychic gifts; however, that’s not true from my experience. It also doesn’t automatically give someone an interest in metaphysics. What it can represent, though, is an intuitive and intelligent mind. The types of people I have seen with this mark are managers, business owners and risk-takers.
Keep in mind that if the mark is made up by a stress line crossing over a fate line, it is not a mystic cross. Ideally, this cross sits between the lines, not touching any other line.
Connection from the heart to the mind
If the cross is a branch from the heart line to the head line, and vice versa, it connects the emotions (the heart) to the mind. With the branch from the head to the heart line, the mind receives energy from the emotional side. Therefore, the subject might combine the rational with what they feel when making decisions.
