Teaching Ability Signs in Palmistry
Teaching ability is something that comes naturally to some people. I sometimes get asked questions regarding career choices. Not everyone knows what they want to do or what they are good at. Therefore, I need to try to find their talent through what I see on their hands.
Many factors come into a person’s ability to teach. The obvious one is an interest in passing knowledge (and having knowledge). Not having teaching ability doesn’t mean you cannot become a teacher. It does, however, mean you need to change or get out of your comfort zone to be effective.
Skills for Teaching Ability
To be a good teacher, you need compassion and enthusiasm to help others succeed. Other essential skills are leadership and commitment. You also need a certification, which varies from state to state or country. If you want to be a school teacher and are not keen on interacting with people, reading, studying, researching and checking endless piles of paperwork, then maybe teaching is not for you.
Signs of teaching ability from the shape of the hands
In palmistry, the hand shape is the first sign that can give clues to the right character for a teacher. The fingers and skin texture also give away clues. We use the terms from astrology to describe some of the types of hands. An air hand has long fingers, a water hand is narrow, an earth hand looks square, and the fire hand has a large palm. See below for the description of the personalities.
The air hand shape
The shape of the hand that might show strong teaching ability is the air and fire hand. The air hand has a small palm compared to the fingers. The palm is more square than a rectangle. The long fingers depict someone who is mentally active. They are logical, intelligent, patient and analytical (with a love of detail). They like to think things through themselves and tend to be inquisitive and eager to learn. Hence, make excellent students and teachers. They prefer to keep busy mentally with thoughts and ideas with constant variety and change.
The air hand types will quickly deliver their information through the ability to articulate their know-how patiently. Communication and technology are of interest to the thinking types. They are frequently up to date with the latest technology. Many have talent in vocal or literary fields. A suitable career for them would be journalism, teaching or something involving intellectual activities because they may become restless or bored without mental stimulation. The air hand types should avoid mental exhaustion from taking on too many things. Flexible routines and activities that stimulate the mind are recommended.
The fire hand shape
With the larger palm, the fire-shaped hand has fingers relatively shorter. The palm is often unblemished, with broad lines. These people are mostly the extroverted type with a personality that is charismatic, energetic, impulsive, adventurous, fun-loving and intense, physically and mentally. These types make great teachers because they inspire others with enthusiasm and are always looking for a challenge.
With their quick mind, the fire hand types like to get into competitive activities, so a physical education teacher is likely to have this hand shape. However, they are restless folk and can instantly become impatient if you are not following orders. When talking to a fire hand type, you must get to the point quickly because they already have their own opinion.
The fire hand types may use unique or unfamiliar teaching methods. This type of teaching keeps students interested and eager to learn.
Water hand shape
The water hand is narrow looking with long fingers. These types tend to be creative and sensitive. The kind of teaching suitable might be related to the arts, such as drama, acting, design, cooking, dressmaking etc. They would not cope well as a sports coach or a rowdy teenage group. The younger grades would be more appropriate for their quiet style.
The earth hand shape
The earth hand has short fingers with a square palm. These people are down to earth and might be good at teaching practical subjects like sports, farming, gardening, art, and pottery. But they might also be good at computing, technology, banking and finance.
Skin texture that suits a teacher
The skin texture should not be too rough or too silky. The rough skin might depict someone who is too harsh. The silky skin shows someone who might be too soft or unable to cope with the stress of being a teacher. The skin is usually medium to soft, and the nails are wide, square or rectangular.
Signs from the fingers
- The thumb should be sturdy and long, preferably.
- A weak thumb will show a lack of command or control over the students.
- An extended pinkie (one that reaches the top crease of the ring finger) shows the ability to communicate well.
- Straight fingers depict someone steady and honest.
- The finger phalanges should be even-sized, nothing overly puffy.
Teaching ability Signs from the lines
The head line and heart lines should ideally be long and gently curved with a fork at their end. The mount of Jupiter (beneath the index finger) may have a square line formation called a ‘teacher’s square’ on it.
A ring of Solomon – a curved line that sits beneath the index finger, will help since it depicts an ability to understand people.
A rising line from the line towards the index finger is called an ambition line, often present in teachers.
