Health Line Markings on the Palm

The Health line or Mercury line also called a line of the liver describes a person’s overall state of health. It usually starts on the Mount of Moon (lower ulnar area) and runs upward towards the Mount of Mercury. This line mainly indicates the state of the liver and digestive system. However, because of the qualities of Mercury, it can also depict business success or failure. If the line runs deep onto the Mount of Mercury with rising branches, it shows great success in business.

When this line is not present on the hand, it is that the individual is quite robust and rarely suffers health issues. The best kind of line is a clear, strong line because it implies someone with a good constitution. If at any time the line appears red, inflamed or otherwise discoloured, it can suggest that there are toxins or an infection present and the body is trying to fight it.


A weak line is faint, fragmented, chained or multiplied. It can show the health is not as robust as it could be, but I have seen a weak line of mercury on perfectly healthy individuals who say they rarely suffer any illness. When this is the case, I believe the person may be very aware of their body and take care not to do anything which may upset their system, such as eating the wrong types of food—for if they did, they might discover some health issues such as digestive complaints.

If the health line is chained throughout

A chained health line looks like it is made up of many short fine lines and is said to be a condition of a diseased liver and or stomach. With every appearance, variation or defect in the line, as always, look to other indicators. Colour of the skin, colour and condition of the nails and the other lines.

An island on the Health line

An island formation (line splits into two then rejoins) shows a period of poor health or weakened constitution. The immune system may be under stress. Look for clues on the life line for other markings for the same period.
