Palms with many lines and life line marks

In palmistry, the life line (located around the ball of the thumb) helps to read potential changes in the life of the subject. The life line marks can help to detect what type of change might occur (or has occurred). Most palms will have the lines that are classed as ‘the major’ lines; a heart line, a head line and the life line.

The major lines are what people tend to look at first when examining the palms because they are usually the longest and deepest. These lines can also subtly 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, the information gathered is based on past events that have led the person to be where they are now. As our thoughts and desires change, new lines can form and old ones can fade.

The lines that are most likely to change quickly are the minor lines. Because these lines can come and go, they can safely be ignored in Modern Palmistry. Most of the fine lines are present because it shows the nature of the individual as being sensitive, caring, nervous or that they possess a very active mind.

Keeping in mind that any person can take control of their destiny, palmistry can be used to determine some consequences or guidance for our future. Accordingly, if a line shows a particular attribute, it is important to look for other indications for confirmation; as one feature can offset another.

Life line marks and what they mean.

Almost all horizontal life line marks, such as crossbars, stars, and slashes, is classed as a negative interference or obstacles of some kind. A hand that has many of these lines belong to someone who has much nervous energy. They are sensitive to everything around them, they worry a lot and possibly tend to look for problems. (You can watch the lesson about life line marks here.)

A hand with very few lines and markings belong to those who rarely fuss. They are not significantly affected by emotions. A broad and unblemished line describes an unobstructed life path for someone who not often diverts from or allows anything or anyone to change them or to distract from their journey.

More about the meanings

The fork in a line shows divided energy, therefore depicts a decision of some kind, often related to changing location. A spot or dot is not so favourable, as it can denote a sudden shock, injury or trauma.

A cross mark denotes an obstacle which is a little more difficult compared to the bar line. The grille on a line is also a mark which is not too good to have because it shows much uncertainty, anxiety, depression or even restriction such as spending time in jail.

An island has a similar meaning to the grille in the sense that it too shows uncertainty, however, because the lines still continue, it is not as damaging.

So, the markings, no matter what they look like, indicate interruptions to life. These interruptions do not have to be negative. They can and often are positive changes or life events, such as having children or getting married. (See video on marriage lines here.) 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 in the palm of your hand, especially on the life line.
