Right Hand Simian Line on Your Palm

right-hand simian, career guidance reading


The right-hand Simian line has a slightly different meaning to having one on the left. By right hand, I do mean the dominant hand. So, if you are predominately left-handed with a Simian line there, then this applies to you as well. I have based this article on a recent study of people who possess a Simian line. Note: I haven’t taken the shape of the hand or other features into consideration.

Firstly, what is a Simian line?

A Simian line is a single horizontal crease across the palm instead of the more common two lines (head and heart line). Unlike other horizontal lines, the Simian does not have gaps or breaks. With the qualities of the head line, (rational) and the (emotional) of the heart line seemingly combined or missing, it makes sense to regard this line as a sign of single-mindedness. The Simian line is more frequent on males and tends to run in families, and not all have it on both hands. Worldwide it is found only on around 1.5% on the one hand. It is also more common among Asians and Native Americans (around up to 10%). In Caucasians, it is only around 1%.

Pathologically, the line can be a symptom associated with some medical conditions like Down syndrome, Fetal Alcohol syndrome, Aarskog syndrome and chromosome disorders. The Simian Line is mostly inherited; and on its own, it isn’t a definite indication of those conditions.

The Rapas

In the Filipino language, they call the Simian line the ‘Rapas’ and is known to show someone who is intense and dedicated. It shows a lot of energy when it’s available. The person doesn’t stop easily once they begin to move. But once they do stop, they stay unmoved longer than usual. The Simian line people seem to have a switch, it’s either on or off, not much in between. This is especially true if on both hands.

The meaning of a Simian Line

The Simian is like a fused head line and heart line. Therefore, the two sides work together as one. It is a mark of single-mindedness. Typically, the owners of a Simian line are intense, tenacious, unpredictable and often easily misunderstood by others. They do however tend to possess an abundance of energy, some finding it difficult to relax mentally and or physically, unless on a soft water hand with a weak or short line of life, then the get-up-and-go may run out quickly.

In many cases where there is a Simian line present, there are also some other lines that branch from it. A girdle of Venus or floating heart line is also common. These extra lines give the character more intensity and sensitivity depending on other indicators. A line that drops downward acts like the head line, which gives more emphasis on logic. A line that rises from the simian line gives more emotional or sentimental qualities.

The right-hand Simian personality

If your dominant hand has the Simian line, then your distinct personality is more evident to those who do not have it. The intensity and stubbornness of the personality are not so hidden. On the inside, the individual might feel normal emotions and reasoning. However, in their day to day life, everything might be so much more complicated. Of course, as with all palm reading, the shape of the hand, fingers and other features can offset these qualities. The creative urge might be significant.

(Common questions) Is a Simian Line good or bad? Is having the Simian Line Lucky?

There is no real association with luck having a Simian line, however, some people have felt that they have bad luck. Personally, I believe it is simply choices and circumstances. Anyone can make their own luck. The line is neither a bad nor a good sign. It is just a single horizontal crease instead of the more common two lines. The line is not a gift mark, even though some hand readers like to call it a gift marking. I like to think that everyone has some gift, whether to work hard, be of service, love unconditionally or any other positive trait. Having one line instead of two, however, is rare.

Simian line on a thick hand

A right-hand Simian on a fire type hand (thick, long palm, short fingers), certainly enhances the qualities due to the already passionate and impulsive nature. This type of character might feel the need to go into whatever they are interested in deeply. They are not satisfied with skimming the surface and letting things go. More often than not, they overthink and over analyse almost everything; they will give all they have, which is perfect in certain situations like research or the sciences. This type of determination and drive helps to get things completely done, not done by halves. It might frustrate them when others do not. Diplomacy is not usually their best quality. In saying that, they are often intolerant with a short temper.

A narrow long hand with Simian

A narrow water hand with the qualities of introversion lessens these traits. While there might still be the passionate nature, they will not be as assertive with it. The water hand gives more sensitivity and compassion, but they might not handle stress as well. Anxiety can be an issue as they are the more introverted types and prefer to be in their own company.

Quotes by People With a Right Hand Simian

In the words of a right-hand Simian person, “I like to think about everything in detail, such as when commenting or filling out forms, because I want everything perfect! My friends and people I know say that I have an attitude. However, I think it is my strength, I do not easily give up, and I am always curious.”

Another right-hand Simian person quoted: “I’m incredibly short-tempered. I hate stupid and unreasonable people. If I consider myself a friend to someone, I go a long way to defend him/her. I’m an excellent father and my son means everything to me. I’m not too fond of unnecessary social courtesy and I express my feelings on the face of people. Professionally, I’m diplomatic and a terrific colleague to work with. People enjoy my company but handle me with extreme care as they fear my sensitivity. If I turn my back to someone, I never return to him/her. I’m always struggling inside my mind to control my emotions. I’m a man with sound judgement and people respect my decision although at the beginning many of them stand against my thought. I like people, but after a while, I “tolerate” them. I enjoy loneliness and never miss anyone badly.”

Female right Simian: “I think my personality like ordinary people, but I know I have high tolerance about people nowadays because I see on a bigger perceptive and I find it easy to make my brain and my heart agree with my opinion or decisions.”
