Thumb lines, the meaning: Every so often hand analysts take into consideration the meanings of the lines on the thumb. I have included the thumb lines here because it is something that interests me and I watched these lines on my thumb change over the past twenty-one years.

The crease at the base of the thumb is a family ring. The line in the middle of the thumb is meant to show much the person cares about their family or how much involvement the person has in their family.

Island in the middle line

A neat island in the middle is a good connection to the family. It apparently depends on the depth and strength of the line. Sometimes disconnection from the family shows by a missing island on the thumb.

The crease in the middle of the thumb lines (top phalange) is also about the health of the individual. It usually has an island formation, much the size of a grain of rice. If present in the perfect form, it is said to show a healthy person, a happy and robust family life. If broken, split or missing, the family life might be going through change or may have had disruptions.

  1. A family ring, intact like a chain shows close family ties.
  2. A second line above the family ring at the base of the thumb shows a marriage. It can depict that there is another family through marriage (or adoption or second marriage) or that there are two homes. More than one line here can suggest two marriages.
  3. Triangles on the line at the base crease of the thumb show inheritance.
  4. If the top line is (clearly visible and stands out) and contains an island, it shows much care for the household.
