Rare palm lines with a significant meaning, such as the camera’s eye, enemy line or dedication line, are often overlooked in a palm reading. Some of the unique marks are not a line but a pattern on your skin ridges, which means it’s a set of lines that don’t change. Get excited and see how many you have!
What’s exciting about palmistry is that we can discover things about ourselves that we didn’t even know. It might be something as simple as finding a loop of music and suddenly realising you have talent! In this article, you will learn about the Dedication line, Sydney and Suwon crease. Intuition line, Passion line, Mars line, Enemy lines (challenge line), courage line and camera’s eye line. Also, the Loop of music, the loop of courage and the music bee loop.
Skin ridge patterns and fingerprints
The skin ridge patterns and fingerprints don’t change from birth, which means that they can show your innate personality type. Some of these patterns are very rare, such as the music bee and loop of courage. (Read more about these skin ridge patterns below in this article.)
The dedication line is one of the rare palm lines that is a fate line that starts from the Mount of Mars. Sometimes it stops at the heart line, which depicts a potential change in career into something more aligned with their desires. Because the line originates from the outer (upper) Mars area, it has Mars energy. It shows someone dedicated to their work or can cope well under pressure, especially if the mount is firm. It shows determination to help others and do well in the career, especially after forty.
The Camera’s Eye Line
The line called a Camera’s Eye is an indicator of an artistic person with an eye for exactness. It could almost be regarded as an extra Apollo or Mercury line because it sits in the area between Apollo and Mercury mounts, over the heart line. A camera’s eye is an excellent marking to have if your career involves having a sharp eye for detail.
The benefits of this line are not limited to the fields of photography and art but in anything that requires spotting visual features or aspects of images that may be out of sync or incorrect, such as a photographer, an air traffic controller or video surveillance officer.
The Courage Line
The courage line is an especially rare palm line, an influence line similar to the dedication line. It originates from the upper Mars and ends somewhere low on the Apollo mount. The career is the main focus with this line and will be likely to be creative. Some palmists also call the Mars line (inside the life line) the line of courage, which does make sense considering it originates from the inner Mars area. Also, look for the loop of courage inside the thumb which depicts a brave, spirited personality. Try not to mistake this line for the enemy line (see below).
The Enemy Line or Challenge Lines
When a horizontal or diagonal line originates from the outer Mars and crosses any other line, it is an enemy line or more appropriately, a challenge line. Please note that this line from the side of the palm is either straight or downward curved. It can be short or long (like in the image above, it’s long).
If this line crosses over or reaches the head or heart line, it interferes with the emotional or mental side, denoting worry. If the enemy line crosses over or reaches the fate line, it is more significant and might affect the career or other life goals. Over the success line, the reputation is at stake. Rarely this line reaches the life line, but if so, it can be a health issue caused by challenging circumstances or people.
If the challenge line does not reach any line but instead covers the area of the outer Mars, it is a supernal line that represents the inner life. It is possible that the person is spiritual and or will have a spiritual awakening of sorts at some point in their life. These types of lines require careful analysis and observation over time.
The Enemy Lines on the Thumb
On the thumb, the enemy (challenge) line originates at the first crease near the lower Mars and diagonally rises across the thumb. (See the red lines on the first image above). It is only a challenge line on the thumb if it crosses over the thumb’s second crease. The second line of the thumb represents a second marriage/family, and therefore, if the challenge line crosses it, it can denote an enemy in the family or marriage. An example may be that the ex-husband is the enemy of the new marriage/partner. (You can read more about thumb lines here.)
The Mars line or Warrior Line
The Mars line is also known as the courage or Warrior line. A well-formed line is a mark of physical energy and courage. It can also be a line of protection against illness or accidents, especially if the line of life has a break in it. It is one of those rare palm lines that shows someone with inner spiritual awareness. They might even have a guardian angel or spirit guide.
Many times, I see the Mars line on women who have a supportive partner or family member in their life. In some cases, where the line ends, depicts the time when the support ends. It is always important to check other parts of the palm for confirmation. Even if the Mars line is short, it indicates good health and powers of recuperation after illness. Some traditional palm readers say that the line shows talent. The best description must be that it shows someone with a fighting spirit.
The Rare Loop of Courage
The very rare palm line that is the loop of courage is often inherited from one, or both parents. It is also rarely on both palms. These people are brave spirited and have a tough exterior. They are robust and not afraid of challenges; in fact, they thrive on them!
Loop of Music and the Rare Music Bee
The loop of music suggests one who is musically talented, or at least strongly affected by music. Be careful not to confuse it with the loop of the environment which is just slightly higher on the mount. The loop of rhythm is more likely to be found on a talented drummer, dancer or just one with a sincere appreciation of a good tune.
The very rare music bee is a group of ridges that go in the opposite direction of its surrounding ridge pattern on the mount of Venus. The lines form a shape like the striped body of a bee. It denotes a keen natural talent for music, especially of stringed instruments. Many people have the ability in music even if they do not have this marking, so don’t be disappointed if you do not have one. (Check out all the other palm patterns here.)
The Passion Line (Inspiration Line)
The passion line is a slanted line running from the middle of the heart line to the base of the little finger. It can also end between the ring and little finger. It tells of a character who passionately goes about their business. They put their heart and soul into their work, business or hobby. These individuals can not only use their business skills to achieve their aims but also their charm or magnetism. You can read about the Girdle of Venus here.
The Rare Intuition Line
The Intuition line is one of the very rare palm lines. This mark lies at the side of the hand near the percussion. It rises on Mount of Moon, (lower percussion area) and in a curve, ends on or near the Mount of Mercury (mount beneath the little finger). The distinguishing feature of this line lies in its decided curve. It is a rather uncommon line. I have personally only seen a few in its entirety.
The existence of the intuition line, if well and marked, adds significantly to the intuitive faculties. It tends to enhance the Mercurian acuteness. If coupled with long fingers, pointed tips, full Mount of Moon and the head line sloping, the subject will be powerfully psychic with visions. They will be firm advocates in signs and omens. It is also one of the signs of intelligence. A deeply etched line will give the most considerable amount of intuition. A broken or otherwise defective line (such as islands or crosses on the line) limits its value.
Marks or branches on the Intuition line
- Rising lines from the intuition line to any of the mounts can give clues to the benefits or downfall effects of it.
- A clear line to Mount Jupiter shows potential success from the aggressive use of their powers.
- A line to the Mount of Apollo tells of their abilities being famous or well known to others.
- If the line cuts through the path of Saturn (fate/career), it can mean that the use of the intuitive faculties might negatively influence the job. However, if it merges into the line of Saturn, it helps the career.
- If it is partially mixed up with the line of Mercury, the health or nervous system may be affected by its powers if not used wisely.
- A rising line to the life line shows the ability to use their intuition to benefit and enhance life.
The Suwon crease is also one of the rare palm lines. The Suwon crease is a Simian line variation where a heart line across the palm or second section of a head line fused to the heart line. It is a Suwon crease because the researchers discovered it named it after their city Suwon in Korea. This type of line might depict a quite demanding person in matters of love and expect a lot from their partner. The material aspect of life is usually significant; meaning they love to look good in all their appearances. They are liable to put work before relationships. This line shows a strongly opinionated and potentially stubborn character.
The Sydney Line
Another variation of the Simian line is the Sydney line which is a head line that completely crosses the palm, but a heart line is still present. These kinds are a little more complicated so that there may be pressure on the emotions or mental capacity, so the individual tends to over analyse feelings or thoughts. It may be difficult for them to sleep well as the mind is permanently active. The good side to it is that they can absorb much of information, thus making top researcher. I have recently brought out a book on the Simian and variants here.
Double lines can be rare, such as two head lines, heart lines or even two life lines. Check out my video about double lines here.
Future changes in the lines
The main lines rarely change drastically, but they can form variations, breaks and marks over time. It is from these marks that we can sometimes predict health or other changes from the hands. Some palm readers insist that the palm lines do not change, but I’m afraid I have to strongly disagree because I have studied people from an early age to old age. The various circumstances that people go through in their life can make these changes. It is even more true regarding health matters. Therefore what you see in your palms now, might not be the same in a year or two. Take a print or image of your palms and check them again in a few years time.
