If you have not yet settled happily into your career, you may be wondering what kind of career choices would actually suit you? When reading about a career in palmistry, the basic features of the hand and fingers can give clues about temperament and natural talents. Your success in a career can depend on whether you are working on the right one.
People inherit many physical features and character traits from their parents, and we are all unique. The basic shape of the hand is an important part of reading the palms. It is what helps us to determine the most fundamental character of the person.
The career in Palmistry from the shape of your hand.
The fingers are a tremendous part of palmistry because they can show how we express ourselves and how we have developed in the past. We all have distinctive looks and the same goes for our psychological makeup, and that is why reading hands can become very involved and complicated. It is this personal disposition that reflects in our hands from birth.
If you have ever wondered why some of your fingers curve in their shape or your hands are otherwise dissimilar to others, Destiny Palmistry gives you some insight into these features.
One of the simplest ways to do this is by using the old astrological elements of fire, water, earth and air to compare four typical hand shapes. (Listed below) What shape is your hand? Maybe you have a combination of some of these shapes?
- & 2. The earth hand has a square palm with average to short fingers. 3. A fire shape hand has a thick or rectangle palm with shorter fingers. 4. The Water hand has a narrow rectangle palm with long fingers 5. The air hand has a square palm with long fingers.
It is likely that your hand does not totally match one of these, but using your judgment, you can come up with one that is close or a mix of another. In some cases, the person’s hand shape corresponds to their real sun sign element. It helps to know a little about the astrological elements. Once you have determined some character traits from the four categories, the lines can help to suggest possible outcomes to support other findings.

The heavy or thick hand shows less patience than a slim one, but it depicts pride. A large, thick and full earth hand (if with hard flesh or skin) belongs to the typical farmer, fisherman and truck driver type.
