Which is Your Type of Heart Line?
The type of heart line can help you to understand the emotional aspect of the personality. The heart line is the uppermost horizontal line on the palm; it represents how a person expresses their feelings and their attitudes towards relationships. The basics of reading this line are the same as the head and life lines; that is by looking at its length, depth, and quality. Below I have chosen a type of heart line for four various shapes. Choose one that matches closest to your type of heart line.
If you have one of the four types below, click on the image that matches the closest to learn what it means for you.
Curved type of heart line.
The curved heart line shows a passionate nature. These people know what they want and they don’t hesitate to go after it. If it is the most prominent line on the hand, they are ruled by their heart. See here for more.
Straight type of heart line
A straight heart line which does not reach into the padded area beneath the index finger is a short line. These people tend to suppress their feelings or they simply love their freedom. See here for more.
Forked heart line
The meaning of a fork in the heart line depends on what type of fork it is. For instance, if the lower branch of the fork touches the head line below, it shows a tendency to think emotional thoughts logically. These people might hold back their feelings. If the branch reaches the start of the life line, there may be some issues from their early family life. A fork where both ends land on the Mount of Jupiter beneath the index finger, depicts a warm and romantic nature. They have a wide range of expression emotionally. They are open-minded and level-headed. See here for more.
Heart line joins head line or dips downward
The dipping heart line can denote some insecurity or caution in the realm of the emotions. This insecurity can manifest as a fear of loss, jealousy or inability to show compassion or emotional vulnerability. See here for more.
Other types of Heart Line
Chained looking line
A string of small islands throughout shows a moody, changeable and hypersensitive nature. Imagine a smooth line as showing even emotions, then a messy chained line is uneven emotions. Sometimes the chained look is brought about by mineral deficiencies in the diet. It can also show depression; look at the head line for breaks, islands or one that dips all the way down to the Mount of Moon. Either way, the subject should try to calm down if they are overly nervous.
If the chained appearance is only on the part of the line, it can represent a period of indecisiveness about their feelings. Some see the chained line as a sign of a fickle flirtatious or unfaithful lover. A heavily chained line can suggest actual heart or development problems.
A very long heart line
A very long heart line which crosses the entire palm is called a Suwon crease. It is a variation of the Simian line. Sometimes there is a second line that seems to be fused to the heart line. This type of line might depict a person who is quite demanding in matters of love and expect a lot from their partner. It depicts an obsessive and intelligent nature. Money is usually a significant factor in their purpose; hence they are liable to put work before relationships. It may also be the other way around where relationships come before work matters.
Broken heart line
A broken heart line is when the line stops and starts again. It can overlap or have a clean break. The main thing about the fractured heart line is that it can manifest in difficulties expressing feelings. The subject might have issues with mood swings or emotional stress. (Check type of head line). There may be a period in their life when there is a significant change, such as a broken relationship. (Check life and fate lines). These people might often feel like they are not emotionally connected and feel phases of unattachment.

Most heart lines are not flawless and regularly exhibit branches and markings. I imagine if there were a perfect one, it would show that the emotional experiences of the person’s life would not affect them much, possibly having an insensitive and unsympathetic nature. Where the heart line sits on the palm can add to the meaning of this line.
When the line sits high (closer to the base of the fingers) it suggests the person is open-minded, but experiences regarding the emotions can be somewhat unrealistic. This type may require constant support from his/her partner.
A heart line which sits closer to the head line, suggests an introspective personality showing caution about love but with the aid of reason and a realistic (but sometimes intolerant) approach to relationships. The emotions may lie more buried under the surface.
Marks on the line.
A star mark would suggest an emotional upset or shock. Barlines depict obstacles in unions or restlessness. A cross is also an obstacle but for a more extended period than the bar line.
Missing heart line?
The missing heart line suggests a logical and emotionally detached nature. In all matters, these people are objective, rational and almost ‘mechanical’ regarding the emotions. Relationships might be difficult to sustain unless they are able to tap into those feelings without overthinking them. If on the dominant hand, with strong Jupiter and thumb, they can be aggressive, judgemental and bad-tempered. A good heart line on the non-dominant hand helps to offset some of the cold characteristics.
