Success Line (Apollo line) Marks and What They Mean

The Success line marks that can appear need careful analysis because sometimes they are not what they seem. The success line, also known as the line of Apollo, the line of sun or creativity, is a vertical line that rises towards the ring finger. It is not present as a complete line on all hands and is more typically found only in segments. When someone has the success line on the palm, it signifies the sense of achievement and satisfaction that a person feels in their life.

In legend, Apollo was the sun god who ruled over creativity, music, and the arts; that is why the line is more prominent on those using their creative talent positively. The image below shows several rising lines to the success line. These marks are branches that originate from the heart line, called inspiration lines. This hand belongs to a person who, at age fifty, started a successful creative business.

The length of the Success line

The longer this line, the more it shows talent to express creativity, personal fulfilment or merely the capacity to enjoy life. It is not a guarantee of fame and fortune, but it does bring a certain amount of luck into the individual’s life. It shows that there is potential for accomplishing a great deal. In some cases, this line rises from inside the life line; it is then referred to as an inheritance line, suggesting money or property acquired from the family’s estate.

The marks on the success line

The success line marks can have negative or positive connotations, depending on the mark. Typically, the people with this line can rely more on their talent or ability to succeed. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t succeed if you don’t have this line. Some hands don’t show every mark or line, which depicts their robust physical nature.

Grille Mark on the Success Line

A grille is a series of closely crossing lines, like a grid. Most horizontal or grille markings on the success line have negative connotations that depict obstacles or harm to the reputation. Whenever I see signs of stress here (under the ring finger), such as grille lines, I recommend they take a break from work and focus on their relationships or family instead. Or try a different direction or project.

Square Mark

A square that sits on the line (not formed by other lines) shows that the problems regarding reputation have been solved or avoided. It is a sign of protection.

A Star Mark

A star on the success line loses its traditional undesirable associations and is instead a mark of fortune or fame. It depicts the moment when the subject experiences a sudden feeling of success or stroke of luck. If it is a cross rather than a star, it can denote obstacles. However, be careful; a star on Apollo can also be negative fame, as seen on some convicted murderers like Ted Bundy. (I have a two-page palm reading of his hands in my book).

The triangle on the Success line

Probably one of the most welcoming success line marks is the triangle. Like a flag, a triangle mark attached to the line can depict a windfall, a financial boost or other bonus.

Island mark on the success line

This mark has similar connotations as the fate line. However, it is more likely that it refers to having a period of mistrust or uneasiness regarding their reputation or influence. If with other signs, it can suggest worry or grief. See what the island mark means on the life line here.

Fuzzy or fragmented line

A line that appears faded, blurred, fragmented or of poor quality shows that success is currently a struggle. The goals and purpose are uncertain; there is scattered energy. It can also mean that this line is at its beginning or end stages as new lines can form or old ones can fade.

Wavy line

Often, a workaholic has an Apollo line that wavers up the palm because they are prone to wearing themselves out without taking a break. Signs of overdoing it are dry areas of skin, coarse or hard skin, and grille lines on the palms (crisscross patterns of fine lines). See about stress lines here.


Some palmists say that the longer the success line is, the luckier the person is, but because this line is present in individuals who go after their dreams, I do not think it is pure luck that’s shaped their success, even though luck helps. I believe the longer the line, the more privileges have been presented to the person early on in life. If the ring finger has a Whorl or Peacock Eye Whorl-shaped print, it is a sign of luck for those who choose to take on positive life goals.
