The Island on the life line
My curiosity about the lines on the palm, including the island on the life line started at the age of eleven. I attended my uncles fortieth birthday party with my family. He had hired a palm reader to entertain his guests, and as a very curious little girl, I simply had to know about it. She did a quick reading of my hands, and I have never forgotten what she said to me because they came true.
By the time I left high school, my interest had grown to the extent that I spent many hours in the library searching for suitable books to read. It was not long before I was practising with my friends and taking notes for my study. My hands were the greatest asset as I continued my learning over the next years to come. It has been a long journey which continues as I live my passion for hand analysis.
The main reason I originally got inquisitive about reading palms, was personal. I discovered that some negative markings had appeared on my palms (based on what I had read in books). One mark was the look of my life line, (the line which wraps around the ball of the thumb).
The island on the life line was like a split in the line and then it formed back into one.
Some palmists say that an island on life line is a negative mark, even to say it shows disease like cancer. So, you can imagine my horror and fear when I found this island on my palm. This marking is not, however, a reliable indication of cancer, nor is it a forecast that cancer or any other disease is present. It is, at most, a sign that something causes the energies to split in two directions.
The energy levels might be depleted during the period indicated on the line. Mostly, the island on a line shows a temporary state, lasting only for the duration of it. In some people, of course, (depending on other factors) it can mean a predisposition to a particular disease, such as alcoholism, PTSD or depression.
Depending on what part of the line the island lies, has a diffent meaning.
The island mark primarily indicates uncertainty or interruptions to life. These disruptions do not have to be negative. They can and often are positive changes or life events, such as having children or getting married. Starting a new kind of life at any age can interrupt career, hobbies, friends, family and even the general outlook on life. These changes, in turn, can make its mark on the palm of your hand, especially on the life line.
At the beginning
When the island appears at the very beginning of the life line, it depicts the early years from 1-7 (or so). It is fairly common to have this mark and sometimes it is just a connecting line. The line of life regularly connects to the head line, showing the security of a family and a cautious personality. However, if the mark is clear-cut, it can suggest illness during that period.
The island directly under the index finger depicts the age timeframe of around 15-21. Considering that at this age many young men and women go through hormonal change, it can represent the change into adulthood. I have also seen this type of line when the subject changed their country of origin. Check the other lines for clues of travel or other marks which might point to ill health.
When the island is in the halfway mark of the life line, it points to the approximate age of 35-40. Most people are well into their career or family life by this age, so it can be stress-related. There might be family issues like divorce or uncertainty about the career. If it’s stress-related, often there will be worry lines around the mark. Look for marks on the fate line about money and job. And the heart line and marriage lines about relationships.
Past halfway mark
The island past the halfway mark points to the age around 50-55. For women, it can depict the hormonal changes like menopause. For a man, it can be a time of uncertainty in life as well because he might also be having the hormonal changes.
At the very base of the life line, the island is the most unfavourable because it’s more likely to point towards ill health. Remember to check the consistency of the flesh, the texture of the skin and other indicators of resilience. Around the age of 60+ years, many people start to slow down as they near retirement age. It is a mark also common when someone who lives alone or becomes a grandparent, especially if they are very involved in the role.
A WORD OF WARNING
To back up any possible health issues acquired from palmistry, you should always consult a qualified medical practitioner. Please don’t make the mistake of diagnosing from the nails, palms or lines alone. Many of these indicators are in frequent change according to the individuals’ state of affairs.
If you are reading for someone else, remember, use care and tact, never alarm a potentially nervous or sensitive subject. It is not our job as a hand analyst to humiliate or discourage anyone. If you happen to fail to verify something, you might not have judged the whole hand correctly.
The lines do change over time
Keep In Mind, the lines can change over time; therefore, what is evident in your hands now, does not imply a fixed quality or event. When using the lines for prediction, gather information from the past trials that have led the person to be where they are now. Any lines or markings that represent the future are just assumptions. They show what is potential for the subject based on past actions.
