Fate line timing events: The timing on any line is never an exact science; this is mainly the case for the fate line which registers our advancement through life.
Each mark, break or divergence can potentially match an event in our life. Fate line timing is to possibly spot an impending change of career or another life event.
The fate line is the middle vertical crease on the palm. Some people call it a career line or line of Saturn. It is an excellent indicator of change in the life of its bearer. A perfect and straight fate line which runs directly from the base of the palm to below the finger of Saturn can denote an unchanging and steady career, drive or direction in life. The person knows who they are; they are self-motivated, serious and in control of their decided path in life from an early age.
Where the fate line starts
If the fate line starts from the life line, it shows a traditional start to a career. What that means is the career started from the individual’s background, education or personal merit. It represents a competent person who is determined to apply their energy and talent to succeed in life.
If the fate line starts at the wrist at the centre of the hand, it shows first responsibilities and a balanced personality. The fate line beginning at the base of the palm is a sign of common sense and independence using own efforts which can manifest in the choices in life (and possibly the career).
A fate line starting at the Mount of Moon shows people (or public) based profession of their choosing. They achieve success due to their appealing and essential qualities, someone who can be in the public eye. Often found on entertainers and actors.
Estimating the timeline on the fate line
What I have found to be the easiest way to get a close estimate is to use the different lines to compare. If the heart and head lines form in a typical manner such as the photo above, then the age of approximately thirty-five is where the line crosses the head line.
Where it crosses the heart line, is usually the age of fifty. Other palm readers may disagree with this timescale, and I understand because of we all progress at a different pace in life.
How to know if fate line timing is accurate?
The best way to make the timing more accurate is to compare past life events on the line. For instance, if there is an island on it (indicating a period of financial trouble). Ask the subject what age they were at the time of that event, then it can be judged from that point.
If the hand does not have the typical lines, say for instance they are displaced higher or lower than average, or there is a Simian line, then I adjust the timing from the age of thirty being the centre of the palm. The spacing tends to get narrower towards the later period.
If you are reading for someone else
Remember if you are doing a reading, use care and tact, never alarm a potentially nervous or sensitive subject. It is not our job as a hand analyst to humiliate or discourage anyone. If you happen to fail to verify something, it is because you might not have judged the whole hand correctly.
The lines do change over time
Remember, the lines can change over time; therefore, what is evident in your hands now, does not imply a fixed quality or event. When using the lines for prediction, gather information from the past trials that have led the person to be where they are now. Any lines or markings that represent the future are just assumptions. They show what is potential for the subject based on past actions. I hope you enjoy reading all my articles. Check out some of the latest ones below.
