Mercury Line Shows Your Health

The Mercury line also called a health line or line of the liver describes a person’s overall state of health. It usually starts on the Mount of Moon and runs upward towards the Mount of Mercury. This line mainly in indicates the state of the liver and digestive system.

However, because of the qualities of Mercury, it can also depict business success or failure. If the line runs deep onto the Mount of Mercury with rising branches, it shows great success in business.

When this line is not present on the hand, it is that the individual is quite robust and rarely suffers health issues. The best kind of line is a clear, strong line because it implies someone with a good constitution. If at any time the line appears red, inflamed or otherwise discoloured, it can mean there are toxins or an infection present and the body is trying to fight it.

A weak line is faint, fragmented, chained or multiplied. It can show the health is not as robust as it could be, but I have seen a weak line of mercury on perfectly healthy individuals who say they rarely suffer any illness.

When this is the case, I believe the person may be very aware of their body and take care not to do anything which may upset their system, such as eating the wrong types of food—for if they did, they might discover some health issues such as digestive complaints.

If the line is chained throughout, it is said to be a condition of a diseased liver and or stomach. With every appearance, variation or defect in the line, as always, the head and life line should be consulted first. Also look at the nail colour and fingernail marks, for potential clues. Please remember that just one feature alone in palmistry is not an actual diagnosis of any disease.

Fragmented or broken line of Mercury

A fragmented or broken line of Mercury is standard and can occur when the body is under stress; they may not be aware that there is a health issue. Most of the ailments or dysfunctions that relate to this line are around the digestion, elimination, kidney, liver and respiratory areas. A broken or split line can also indicate a current or past health issue.

Mercury line that crosses over the life line

If the life line has an island on the lower part, it shows a time of uncertainty. A line of Mercury that passes through this island can depict a more severe condition. Check the quality of other lines for the same period, and the life line after the island. If lines are well-formed and free of breaks, the constitution is likely to be healthy, and the condition is liable to pass.

Other lines to look for when a Mercury line is present

via lascivia, allergy line

Whenever we read the lines, we should look at the other lines to help us understand the whole picture. One of the main lines for allergies is the Via Lascivia, is also known as the addiction line, poison bar. This line can appear differently depending on what type of hand it is on. Generally, it is a line near or even parallel to the Line of Health. It can originate from the Mount of Moon between the life and health line, or the Mount of Venus.

Where there is a Via Lascivia line present, it can denote sensitivity towards food, drugs or both. The subject could be sensitive to airborne pollutants, smoking, and alcohol. This line also appears redder when an allergy or infection is present in the system.
