What is the meaning of an Island Mark On the Lines of the Palm
An island mark is a divided line which joins again forming an elongated oval instead of a continuous line. It can have a variety of meanings and can be of different sizes. The main explanation of the mark is that it slows down the normal flow of energy.
Imagine if a river is moving in one direction in a steady stream when suddenly there is a fork which parts the waters in two directions. The quantity of water has not increased, so then the two new courses have half of the original amount of water flowing. If you use the river scenario in a life situation; it is possible that the individual has diverted (temporarily) in the usual path, which can in some instances result in a decrease in vitality.
If the island has been present for a long time, with no apparent problems, it can describe a period when resistance is low. In some circumstances, it shows a troubled or unstable time or even a predisposition to a disease such as depression or alcoholism. Sometimes it is there when a person has PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) which is when the subject has anxiety and or flashbacks triggered by a traumatic event.
Check for other indicators on the palm before assuming health problems
If other indicators tell of a difficult time, (many crosses, hatches or blurry lines) the island on the life line shows that health has been affected by those problems. As you can understand, the island can have many connotations, and without thorough examination and confirmation from its bearer, it is not possible to have one meaning for the marking with certainty. The good news is that the island forms back into one line indicating a return of normality. See about stress and trauma lines here.
Island on the head line
An island on a head line again shows a weakening of the line, and that the mental powers are affected. It can be a sign of worry, uncertainty, illness, depression, loss of memory or merely a period of fatigue which affects the ability to think clearly. Someone who suffers from migraines might also have this mark. Look at the quality of the line after the island. Once the line resumes to normal, so should the issues.
Island Mark on the Heart Line
An island on the heart line can suggest a problematic emotional period or worry over a relationship. Sometimes it is one of the indicators of physical problems with the heart.
Island on the Fate Line
An island on the fate line weakens the flow and often denotes worry over something such as financial difficulties from taking on too much credit or borrowing money, bankruptcy is a possibility depending on other indicators. Look for interference line rising from the Mount of Venus and across the life line. Many small islands which form a chain is a period when numerous issues affect the smooth flow of career and life in general.
Island mark on the success line
This mark has similar connotations as the fate line. However, it is more likely that it refers to the subject having a period of mistrust or uneasiness regarding their reputation or influence. If with other signs, it can suggest grief.
