What is Destiny Palmistry?
Palmistry is more than just looking at the lines on the hands. The art of studying hands is about seeing the character, your abilities and purpose in life. The Study of the hand, Chiromancy is one of the oldest of the ancient forms of divination, which has long been known as palmistry. This study helps us to learn about ourselves and our goals in life. In modern times, a new way to hand reading has evolved (Chirology) which uses not only the study of the hand shape and fingers but also of the lines, marks, skin texture, palm ridges, and fingerprints.
Whether you are new to palmistry or have the experience, there is always something different to learn. Not only are there various views about hand analysis, but also diverse cultures. I hope to give you enough range on this site so that you can form your own opinion as well.
Major and Minor lines – Notes from Destiny Palmistry
Most palms have the major lines; a heart line, a line of the head (or Simian line) and the life line. Although some hand readers also like to refer to the Saturn and Apollo lines as major ones. The reason I do not is that they are not always in everyone’s hands. Also, the fact that they are the lines most likely to change along with the person’s lifestyle. The main lines are what people tend to look at first when checking the palms because they are usually the clearest. These lines can also change over time; therefore, what is visible in your hands now, does not always imply a fixed quality or event.

Prediction from the lines, is it possible?
When using the lines for prediction, look into the past trials that have led the person to be where they are now. But, any lines or markings that show in the future are just guesses. The reason prediction is based on assumption is because our hands have such a connection to our brain, that mental activity is recorded on our palms. So, as our thoughts and needs change, new lines can form, and old ones can fade.

Which hand to read?
The hand that a person writes with is their dominant hand, and the lines and hand shape can show which is the non-dominant. The dominant hand is less flexible indicated by a thumb with a smaller angle. The non-dominant hand tends to be more relaxed and have more lines because it shows our thoughts, and what is really going on.
The dominant hand
The dominant hand tells what is happening in their material or the outer world right now, (the conscious). It shows what we are experiencing and whether we have developed and grown from our past. The right and left hands are usually different, which is why you should always look at both.
The non-dominant hand
The non-dominant hand is mostly about what is happening on an inner level (subconscious) or what is potential. It shows what we feel we could be doing or should be doing. I read the history from the non-dominant hand, but both sides can depict past events due to timing on the lines.
Some lines change quicker than others
The lines that are most likely to change quickly are the minor lines. But most lines depict what is happening now and what has led to the current circumstances. Keeping in mind that any person can take control of their destiny, palmistry can be used to figure out some consequences or guidance for our future. Accordingly, if a line reveals something, it is essential to look for other indications for confirmation; as one feature can offset another.
As an example, a line that shows success for a person may indicate this as a likely conclusion. However, if other signs are against it, such as the lack of willpower, then getting that success may be difficult; (but not impossible). Finding adverse marks should not be a bad thing, but instead an incentive for making positive changes for better future outcomes.
Learn more about the lines
If trying to make predictions, the fate line is an excellent example of using the past and future in reading. If the left or non-dominant hand has a weak fate line, but the dominant has a well-formed one, it can show that the person has made life decisions or become more motivated.
An example from the chained heart line on the non-dominant hand; If the dominant hand has a clean one, it shows the person is no longer as sensitive or nervous as in the past. Another example from the line of the head. The head line shows how we think. So, if there are breaks on the line on the non-dominant hand, the person might feel like they can’t focus. It might also suggest an indecisive nature. If the dominant hand has a regular line, it doesn’t affect the person much.
The Fingers in a Palm Reading
The fingers are a massive part in palm reading because they can show how we express ourselves. They can also reveal how we have developed in the past. We all have certain looks, and the same goes for our mentality. It is our personal make-up that reflects in our hands from birth.
The fingers can show characteristics of a different personality at home compared to the public eye. For instance, a short middle finger on the non-dominant hand indicates that at home the subject is carefree and tolerant. But, if on the right, the middle finger is a regular length (or long), they are more serious and firmer at work or in front of the public eye.
Another example which represents our boundaries and the law is when the middle finger is short on the dominant hand, but not on the non-dominant, the person may struggle to be responsible with the finances. It can also reveal that they are inclined to break the rules outside of the home. It’s not to say that is the general nature because other factors come into it. Consider finger length as a foundation of the reading.
The basics of hand reading by Destiny Palmistry
People inherit many physical features and character traits from their parents, but we are all unique, and our hands show it. The basic shape of the hand is especially an essential part of reading the palms because it is what helps us to determine the first and most fundamental character of the person. See about hand shapes here.
Destiny Palmistry, book one covers all about how to recognise the character through a mere glimpse of the hands. See more about it from the link below.
I would like to note these three things:
- Palmistry cannot predict the length of a person’s life.
- Palmistry cannot foretell the exact number of marriages or children.
- It also cannot tell what your future partner looks like, what age, size or how wealthy they are.
These are the typical questions I get asked; yes, even number three! Some people seem to think a hand reader has this kind of magical power to give such answers.
I do write many articles about the marriage lines and children lines, because of the traditional meanings. In some cases, these markings have been accurate, but I do remind people to be careful, not to take the evaluations too seriously.
The mystery of it all
You may be disappointed about the ambiguousness of some aspects of palmistry, but it should give you a feeling of relief knowing you have more control over your life. I would not think that relying on fate alone is beneficial to anyone’s happiness, but instead, it should show what is potential and that you have the power to choose or change the course of your life.
If you are reading for someone else
Remember if you are doing a reading, 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, it is because you might not have judged the whole hand correctly.

Keep in mind, the lines can change over time; so, what is in your hands now, does not imply a fixed quality or event. When using the lines for prediction, gather information from the past that has led the person to be where they are now. Any lines or markings that represent the future are just assumptions. They can show what is potential for the subject based on past actions.
How long does it take to learn palmistry?
There is quite a lot to learn when it comes to palmistry, even before you begin to look at the lines. With patience and practice, you can gradually become familiar with all the features of the hand and what they mean. Personally, I still find marks or lines that I have never come across before! There’s one thing I have learned in my years of study, is that understanding palmistry is a lifetime commitment.
