What is a triangle mark on the palm?
A triangle mark on the palm is a mix of three straight lines that meet. They may even cross each other slightly. In palmistry, it’s rare to see markings such as triangles, squares, stars and crosses. But if present, they can indicate a warning or point to a sign of talent, fortune or an event. In most cases, markings on the mounts accentuate the meaning of the mount either favourably or in an undesirable way.
Some of these markings will take a meticulous eye when analysing what they mean, like whether it is a mix of other lines overlapping or one which stands on its own. The triangle is one which many misidentify because it can appear coincidentally with the crossing of central lines. If that is the case, it has no value.
What does the triangle mark mean?
A triangle found distinctly on its own or attached to the line is known to give karmic support, a boost of power or talent to the specific area. It is a welcome sign to diminish any existing difficulties. The size of the triangle doesn’t matter; however, they are usually small. (Based on traditional palmistry).
If you are learning about palmistry for the first time
I enjoy reading palms because you never know what kind of marks and lines you can come across. If you are learning palmistry, you might get confused by the abundant amount of information available. It would be best to start with the basics and focus only on the main areas. See this article for a beginners guide to hand reading.
Some people see only shapes and symbols and wonder what they mean. In traditional palmistry, symbolism was used much more than nowadays. Very rarely do any conventional signs appear on the palm, and if they do, they are a likely coincidental mix of other lines. For your knowledge, I have included the rare triangle mark meanings here, even if you never see one. Note: the palm ridgelines form a triangle called a triradii, which are not triangles formed by lines; therefore, they have no meaning in palmistry symbolism. The triradii are present on every palm.
