Main Lines in Palmistry (Also called major lines)

If you are interested in palmistry, you might already know that there are some lines on the palm that stand out more than the others. These are called major lines. Most palms will have a heart line, a head line, and the life line, so I have chosen only these three to be classified as the main lines. Some palmists like to refer to the Saturn line and Apollo lines as the main lines in palmistry. However I do not see these on every hand, or they are only partially visible, so I regard them as minor lines.

There is a vast difference in the way lines are formed on the palms of individuals, and it is the uniqueness of these lines that makes this topic so interesting. Some personalities will have a palm which is covered in many lines and others will only exhibit the major lines.

How do the palm lines form?

Lines obviously form through the clenching of the hand, however, why then are the lines so different between each person? Several factors decide how the lines form. The hands are connected to the mind (the brain), and the more active or stressed is the mind, the more lines there will be on the palm. Secondly, the texture of the skin and the development of the muscles can help determine how many lines will form. Therefore, someone who works with their hands, particularly heavy work (such as a labourer), will have fewer lines due to firmer skin. Delicate skin generally has many lines, and it tells about the nature being more refined and sensitive.

Main Lines in Palmistry Can Change Over Time


The main lines in palmistry are what people tend to look at first when examining the palms. They are usually the longest and deepest. These lines can and do change over time, which is why prediction through palmistry is not reliable. What is evident in your hands now, does not imply a predetermined outcome of the future. It shows a possibility based on past events. As our thoughts and desires change, new lines can be formed, and old ones can fade.

The lines which are most likely to change are the minor lines. When these lines appear fuzzy, and there is dry skin in places, it can show long-term stress. But this faded line can also be the start of new lines forming. It takes careful consideration of the individuals’ life circumstances. When you make positive changes in your life, it can modify the way your lines appear.

When I first studied my own hands, I was disappointed that I didn’t have a strong career line (fate line). It made sense though, because whilst I was in a job, it wasn’t my ideal type of career. (See quiz for a career here).

Many years later as my choices changed, so did the career line, especially on the left hand. The left hand (or non-dominant hand) shows more about what is going on in the mind and past actions. On my right hand, the line wasn’t as clear, mostly because the ideas and motivations in my mind had not fully manifested in my life yet.

Example of a changing life line on the palm

I remember looking at a young mans’ palm a few years ago, and he had the shortest and weakest life line that I’ve ever seen. At age sixteen, it was almost non-existent. However, he had a strong Simian line. After getting to know about him, I realised that his life line was so weak due to his life so far. He didn’t have any specific life goals and he had no responsibilities in life as he still lived with his parents. They did everything for him and life was very easy.

After a few years, I saw him again and the line had grown and become deeper. It was obvious that he was still living one day at a time, but at least he was finally taking steps towards independence. Whenever you see a short or weak life line, don’t assume that there are problems. It might just be the opposite, that they have an easy life. The short line shows a lack of tradition and someone who is not settled and decided on their life path.

Marks on the palm lines

The marks on the lines can help us see possible events that have occurred in the past. Always look at all the lines and other features because one can offset another. As an example, a line which shows success for a person may indicate this as a likely outcome, but if other signs are against this, such as stress and lack of willpower, the attainment of that success will be difficult. Finding adverse signs should not be negative, but instead an incentive for making positive changes for better future outcomes.
