Study of the hands
The Study of the hand, Chiromancy is one of the oldest of the ancient forms of divination, which has long been known as palmistry. This study of the hands helps us to learn about ourselves and our goals in life. It is possible to see positive and negative features, not just from the lines, but also from the hand and finger shapes.
In modern times, a new methodical approach to hand reading has evolved (Chirology) which uses not only the study of the hand shape and fingers but also of the lines, markings, skin texture, skin colour, fingernails, palm ridges and fingerprints.
Good Luck Signs in palmistry.
Many people wonder about good luck signs on the palms. It is one of the many popular questions I get asked when doing a palm reading. Good luck, it seems, is finding success brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions. However, many successful people are lucky, because of their actions. In palmistry, there are actually a few signs which many people have, yet never realise how lucky they are.
Most of the time, people who seem to be lucky, are actually just positive, hardworking and happy people. So the signs of good luck would be pretty much the same as the signs of a happy person.
THE LINES ON THE HANDS
The major lines are often what people look at most when questioning about their palms, but these lines can and do change. What is evident in your hands now, does not mean that there is a fated outcome from what we see, therefore as our thoughts and desires change, new lines can be formed and old ones can fade.
The lines which are most likely to change are the minor lines. The major lines are least likely to change quickly over time and the palmar ridges and fingerprints do not change at all. Free video lessons here.
The seven good luck signs
If I was to look for good luck signs on the palms, I would look for these listed below:
- A well-developed mount directly under the ring finger.
- Lines rising up to the ring finger (at least one) three is still good, it shows many opportunities, (but be careful, too many lines change the meaning).
- A trident (three-pronged fork) line beneath the ring finger.
- Rising branch lines from the life line (the line which wraps around the ball of thumb)
- A well-developed (long) thumb and pinkie.
- Firm hands (not soft and flabby).
- Four bracelet lines on the wrist.
Which hand to read?
The hand that a person writes with is usually their dominant hand, and the lines and hand shape can show which is the non-dominant. The dominant hand is less flexible, demonstrated by a thumb with a smaller angle. The non-dominant hand tends to be more relaxed and have more lines because it shows our thoughts, and what is really going on.
The dominant hand
The dominant hand describes what is happening in their material or the outer world right now, (the conscious). It shows what we are experiencing and whether we have developed and grown from our past. The right and left hands are usually different, which is why I always look at both.
The non-dominant hand
The non-dominant hand defines what is mostly happening on an inner level (subconscious) or what is potential. It shows what we feel we could be doing or should be doing. I read the history from the non-dominant hand, but both sides can depict past events due to timing on the lines.
Making predictions from the palm lines
If trying to make predictions, the fate line is an excellent example of using the past and future in a reading. If the left or non-dominant hand has a weak fate line, but the dominant has a well-formed one, it can show that the subject has made life decisions or become more motivated. An example from the chained heart line on the non-dominant hand; If the dominant hand has a clean one, it shows the person is no longer as sensitive or nervous as in the past.
The line of head
The head line shows how we think. So, if there are breaks on the line on the non-dominant hand, the person might feel like they can’t focus. It might also suggest an indecisive nature. If the dominant hand has a regular line, it doesn’t affect the person much.
It is a good idea to keep a record of the palms by taking a clear digital photo, a photocopy or ink print of both palms. This way, you can look them up later to see if there have been any changes.
The fingers themselves can also show characteristics that depict a different personality at home compared to the public eye. For instance, a short middle finger on the non-dominant hand indicates that at home the subject is carefree and tolerant, but if on the right, the middle finger is a regular length (or long), they are more serious and firmer at work or in front of the public eye.
Another example which represents our responsibilities, boundaries and the law, is when the middle finger is short on the dominant hand, but not on the non-dominant, the subject may struggle to be responsible with the finances or be inclined to break the rules outside of the home. It’s not to say that is the general nature because other factors come into the analysis but consider finger length as a foundation of the reading.
