Healing lines and their true meaning
The healing lines, which are also known to be called ‘Medical Stigmata’ lines, are on the mount of Mercury (the padded area under the pinkie). There are usually three to five vertical parallel lines in the middle of the mount. These lines do not touch any other line, like the heart line under it. They do not reach to the little finger.
It’s important to carefully inspect the healing lines because there are what are called children lines on the same mount. The child lines are on the ulna edge, whereas the healing lines are directly in the front. Sometimes, these lines are slightly more towards the Mount of Apollo, almost under the ring finger.
The healing lines are a standard set of minor lines, located chiefly on someone with medium to fine-textured skin. Having these lines does not mean the person is or will become a doctor or a healer. Healings lines show much more than the name implies. If they are on the palm of a medical practitioner, it shows that they can empathise with their patients. It suggests one who has a gentle and reassuring way of dealing with people and or animals.
The healing lines also support the person’s ability to heal themselves. It also shows someone who is in constant learning mode. The subject is usually emotionally and mentally intelligent. Their mind is always busy.
Too many healing lines changes the meaning.
These healing lines strengthen the qualities of Mercury. The Mercury finger and mount represent your ability for communication, whether in personal relationships or business. It shows how well you connect with others as well as the amount of mental capacity and ideas. Positive aspects show quick wit and intelligence. Negative aspects point to deceitfulness or nervousness. Mercury qualities:
- Communication and diplomacy.
- Intellectual capacity and thought processes.
- Mind and Learning ability.
More than five of these lines shows an excess of Mercurian attributes. Rather than referring to healing, it points to more about business and communication. More often they seem to appear when a person is into marketing, writing, communicating or selling, such as a writer, teacher or entrepreneur.
A grille marking
A grille marking appears on a hand when there is a group of many lines in a patch. Typically, there are vertical and horizontal lines overlapping each other in one area forming what may look like a lattice. However, often the lines are not visible but instead an area in which seems to be a blur of lines or skin ridges. If there are so many lines on the Mercury mount that it forms a lattice-like set of lines, it depicts shrewdness and scheming. The person is at risk of failure in their business or relationships.
The marks we see on the palms that don’t seem to fit into any category of a ‘line’ are still significant. They can indicate a warning, such as stress, or point to a sign of talent, fortune or an event. In most cases, markings on the mounts accentuate the meaning of the mount either favourably or in an undesirable way.
A star mark can be both good and bad. On a line, it is an unwelcome find, but on the Jupiter or Apollo mount, it reveals extraordinary talent, financial windfalls or even sudden fame. However, even these encouraging marks need to be viewed as cautionary since sudden fame or success can affect personal life. Hence keeping one’s head together and feet on the ground to ensure a more secure and happy scenario.
Some of these markings will take a meticulous eye when analysing what they mean, like whether it is a mix of other lines overlapping or one which stands on its own. The triangle is one which many misidentify because it can appear coincidentally with the crossing of central lines. If that is the case, it has no value.
Whether a square is on the line or the mount, a well-defined independently formed square is a protective mark. This protection can come in the form of conquering specific issues through a stabilising influence; either through one’s strength or from an outside source. The square is often over a break or weak area on a line.
