Influence lines and Support lines

Influence lines are fine secondary lines on the palm. The meaning can vary depending on where it is. The most common influence line is alongside the life line, like a sister line. If the line begins at the mount of Mars, it is a Mars line. If the influence line begins at the life line itself, it can suggest a sudden change by circumstances.

The influence lines can arise from anywhere on the palm, usually on a mount or from a mount. They can also represent a union or partnership if along the life line or if it rises to the fate line. When it originates from the head line or the heart line to touch either the fate or success lines, it is more appropriate to be called an inspiration line. The reason that it is an inspiration line is that the subject has had an idea, thought or feeling which inspired action. These lines are most common rising from the heart line to the success line, showing a heartfelt decision regarding the career, hobby or business enterprise. The name of any line doesn’t actually matter, the point is that there is energy coming from somewhere else and helping in some way.

The vertical lines on the Mount of Venus show mainly family influences, whether it be the mother, father or siblings. They can also represent any person or persons who have an impact or made a strong impression in their life. William Benham describes someone who has a large number of influence lines on the Mount of Venus as having a healthy sexual appetite. From my study, many see themselves as spiritually aware.

Influence lines on the fate line are somewhat different. They can be rising lines that touch the fate line, or a parallel line alongside it. But it is only an influence or support line if it is close. A line which is parallel but not close to the fate line is a secondary fate line. Many people have more than one fate line.

The influence lines on the fate line can depict a variety of things such as:

  1. A marriage or union
  2. A business partner
  3. The supportive friend or partner
  4. An epiphany or emotional decision

An idea might be what caused the influence, usually regarding career or other important life decision. If so, the line will rise to the fate line somewhere around the head line or directly from the head line. Remember, these lines are much finer than the main lines.

Some are not influence lines but instead Travel lines.

If a branch line emanates from the line of life towards the Mount of Moon, they are signs of trips or travel. However, they are not necessarily a symbol of permanent relocation. Usually, there will be a connecting line to the fate line or a new section of life line if the change is lasting. The long-distance travel line is longer than the short distance.

  1. […] It is wise to use other indicators on the hand, such as influence lines to the fate line (see image below). Also, parallel lines on the life line can suggest support in life from a partner. Unfortunately, though, we still cannot forecast how many times a person will marry, if ever. The term ‘lines of affection’ are probably more appropriate nowadays. See about influence lines here. […]

  2. […] see if there are sister lines on one or both sides of the broken life line; these lines give support to an otherwise uncertain […]
