The fate line is the palmistry term used for the vertical crease in the centre of the palm.
How to tell which career suits you from the fate line? In palmistry, it is possible to look at the lines to help predict or assess the progress and type of career. It’s not possible to know the exact type! For instance, someone with a line related to public recognition could just as well be a doctor or a movie star.
What is a fate line?
The fate line is also called the Saturn line or career line. It rises vertically towards the middle finger and is associated with the same qualities as the Saturn mount, just below the middle finger. The fate line is the best line to see a change in the life of its bearer. Therefore, it shows a steady life path if it doesn’t have changes, such as breaks and branches. Other features of the hand can give clues to which career is suitable for the individual. However, in this article, I’m only focusing on how to tell which career from the fate line.
How to tell which career from the fate line starting positions
Starting at the life line (1)
Starting at the life line is a traditional start to a career, originating 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.
Starting from inside the life line (2)
A line from inside the life line would show someone who has had less choice and was probably ruled by the family in the type of work expected of them or obligated to follow the same profession as their parents.
Career line starting at the wrist (3)
Starting at the wrist at the centre of the hand 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 career.
Starting at the Mount of Moon (4)
A fate line starting at the Mount of Moon shows people (or public) based professions of their choosing. They succeed due to their appealing and essential qualities, which can be in the public eye. Often found in entertainers and actors. However, also a line typical of politicians, teachers, nurses and counsellors. Anyone who deals with the public regularly. I have also seen this line on beauty therapists, socialites and food vendors.
From the centre of the palm (5)
Where the fate line starts at the centre of the palm, it shows one of two things. 1. An extended period of uncertainty or lack of motivation. It can suggest unsettled career goals until around twenty-eight, when a major change or reconsideration of life goals begins. Or 2. The individual has had an easy life with no restrictions, and around the age of twenty-eight, their life begins to have a real meaning manifesting in a more motivated or career-oriented mind.
Fate line from outer Mars area (6)
If the line rises from the outer Mars area between the head and heart line, it shows resilience and dedication to their work. It shows a more aggressive approach to achieving goals. It can also be associated with someone likely to start or change their career in the middle of their life to help others less fortunate.
Starting from the head line (7) (blue line)
Starting at the head line is a career that has commenced or progressed after the age of forty. There might be intellectual motives such as completion of study or realisation of a goal or purpose.
From the heart line (8) (orange line)
Starting from the heart line shows success at a later age, usually over fifty years. It is often something that the person enjoys doing and feels on an emotional level. They have found their calling or life purpose.
Where the fate line ends
If the fate line ends before the head line, the person has changed their mind about their chosen career path before age 28.
If the fate line ends at the head line, the person might change their career around thirty-five. It shows a wise choice based on logic.
If the fate line ends at the heart line, depending on other lines, the person might want to retire early or start a new career after age fifty.
A fate line to the middle finger depicts someone busy for their whole life.
Leaning fate line
A leaning fate line is not entirely vertical on the palm. The leaning indicates the direction in life that is in constant change. The person may well have a decided career path, but they want to lean towards something else in their mind. It may be a hobby or passion in life that eventually becomes their career or business. Look for a rising line to the pinkie (Mercury finger), which indicates a businesslike mind.
