Palmistry; the art and science of self-discovery, has been a part of our lives for ages. As we change and evolve with age, so do the lines on our hands.

Man has been studying the importance of these lines since the very existence of mankind. Even in ancient times, thumbprints were used for various purposes. Julius Caesar judged his men with the help of palmistry; By studying both hands—the non- dominant hand (past) and the dominant hand (present)—we can recognise the traceable link between our past behavioral patterns and our present personality, thoughts and experiences. With this understanding, we can shape our future in a constructive, ftilfilling way, making positive choices regarding our work, our dealings with people around us and many other important aspects of life.

The practice of chiromancy is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations. Those who practise it are generally called palmists, palm readers, hand readers, hand analysts or chirologists.

Chiromancy is generally regarded as a pseudoscience. The information outlined below is briefly representative of modern palmistry; there are many—often conflicting—interpretationsof various lines and palm features across various ‘schools’ of palmistry.

Palmistry is also the term in older literature for sleight of hand.

The easiest way to verify it for oneself is by going to a palmist who knows nothing about you. If he is able to mention a few things that happened in the past and relate them to the present, then you will be far more receptive to what he says about the future. In the past, many distinguished philosophers wrote about and approved of this science, which led us to believe in its authenticity But, at the same time, palmistry is an ancient art, and one that has many systems of interpretation. It is also an intuitive art that can be learned easily, by understanding a few basic things about the symbolism that is represented by the lines that run across the palm, the mounts (or fleshy parts) of the palm and the structure of fingers. In palmistry the hand as a whole is divided into three different sections. The fingers represent the mind and the higher self. The middle of the palm represents day-to-day life and the conscious mind. The lower half of the palm represents primal instincts, health and basic drives of the subconscious. Palmistry is all about proportion, symmetry and distortions of what would be considered a perfectly formed hand.

Palmistry begins with the obvious and proceeds, by innumerable intricate steps of judgment and interpretation, to extreme details of the palm. Conclusions drawn from a palm reading can provide you with answers to questions you have regarding your life.



Palmistry begins with the obvious and proceeds, by innumerable intricate steps of judgment and interpretation, to minute details of the palm. Conclusions from a palmistry reading can provide you with answers to questions regarding your life.

A palmist can interpret aspects of a person’s life by reading the lines of the palm. An efficient palmistry practitioner will begin by examining both hands. In the case of a right-handed subject, the left hand is considered the ‘birth hand’, which shows inherited predispositions of character, while the right hand is thought to reflect individuality flexibility and potential. For a left-handed subject, the opposite holds true.

It is the purpose of palmistry to teach you how to conquer the ancient art of divination by means of stated rules and not by intuition. The rules work accurately under all circumstances, whereas intuition comes and goes at its own sweet will, under the influence of some momentary excitement, a state of true clairvoyance, never to be fully relied upon. Palmistry is a well established science, which attracts everyone. However, like every science, one needs patience to learn its deep intricacies and get its correct and true meaning. Every hand is a map of a life and every part of the hand, from the fingertips to the wrist, contains important markers to the points on the map. The roads and signposts in our hands are created by our nervous system. Our palms, fingers and hand postures tell a story about who we are and where we are going in our lives.

Each of our fingers and mounds has an astrological correspondence. Did you know that the size of your Saturn finger can say a lot about how you handle responsibilities? And that you can judge whether someone is being honest just by looking at the areas of the hand ruled by Mercury? By charting the astrological correspondences found in the palm, and understanding the mythologies of the gods and planets associated with each part of that map, it is possible to understand yourself and others by making simple observations about thumb size, finger length, gestures, lines and skin colour. It is important to look at both hands during a reading. Depending on which hand is active (usually seen as the hand you write with), in combination with the inactive hand, it shows where you have been in the past (passive), and where you are likely headed (active) in this life. Palmistry and hand analysis have intrigued humans throughout history Nearly everyone enjoys a free hand reading. Perhaps the earliest interest in hand reading arose when the cave dwellers left their hand prints on cave walls over twelve thousand years ago. Throughout history, since writing was invented, thousands of documents have been created detailing palmistry and hand analysis techniques.

The palm is like a mirror that reflects the mind of a person from birth to death. Hands are servants of the body system, therefore, all that affects the system, affects them as well. A huge difference exists between the hands of different people with different temperaments. Almost everyone associated with medicine admits that different formations of nails indicate different diseases, and it is possible, from the nail alone, to predict whether a person is suffering from some disease.

There is a saying that the hand can express almost as much by its gestures and positions as the lips can by speech. Actually the hand by its direct communication with every portion of the brain, tells not only of the qualities active, but those dormant and those that will be developed as well. Palm reading or analysis is similar to reading body language. Our emotional energy affects every activity of our body. That energy is distributed at different levels throughout the body, more so in the hands. Palm analysts can analyse the different energies in the hands to identify how a person is functioning subconsciously in his life.

It is interesting to know that no two hands can be found to be alike even if they belong to twins. Another interesting fact is that certain peculiarities run in families for generations, and each succeeding race shows whatever that peculiar characteristic is in its temperament. Palm analysis helps us understand ourselves as well as others. It can help us identify many personal traits of strength, weakness, preference and character. The key to palm analysis is understanding how and which energies are displayed in the hands. One’s hand is more like a photograph of that person.
