Palmistry also is known as Chiromancy is a practice common to many different places on the Eurasian landmass, it has practiced in the cultures of India, Tibet, China, Persia, Sumeria, ancient Israel, and Babylonia.
Palmistry or Chiromancy consists of the practice of evaluating a person’s character or future life by “reading” the palm of that person’s hand. Depending on the type of palmistry practiced, and the type of reading being performed, palmists may look at various qualities of the hand, including the shapes and lines of the palm and fingers; the color and texture of the skin and fingernails; the relative sizes of the palm and fingers; the prominence of the knuckles; and numerous other attributes of the hands.
Although variations abound, the most common classifications used by modern palmists:
- Earth hands are generally identified by broad, square palms and fingers, thick or coarse skin, and ruddy color. The length of the palm from wrist to the bottom of the fingers is usually equal to the length of the fingers.
- Air hands exhibit square or rectangular palms with long fingers and sometimes protruding knuckles, low-set thumbs, and often dry skin. The length of the palm from wrist to the bottom of the fingers is usually equal to the length of the fingers.
- Water hands are seeable by the long, sometimes oval-shaped palm, with long, flexible, conical fingers. The length of the palm from wrist to the bottom of the fingers is usually less than the width across the widest part of the palm, and usually equal to the length of the fingers.
- Fire hands are characterized by a square or rectangular palm, flushed or pink skin, and shorter fingers. The length of the palm from wrist to the bottom of the fingers is usually greater than the length of the fingers.
The number and quality of lines can also be included in the hand shape analysis; in some traditions of palmistry, Earth and Water hands tend to have fewer, deeper lines, while Air and Fire hands are more likely to show more lines with a less clear definition.
The line that attracts the most attention is the Love line and on the left and right hand.
If the heart line on the left palm is higher than the one on the right it means that the person is more independent or assertive. These people may not need love to complete themselves and tend to enjoy challenges.
Now, if the lines on both palms are the same level that could mean that the individual is taking love very seriously and prefer to be in long-term relationships. He can be very “soft” and caring towards others, and always helping others in their times of need.
If the left palm line is lower than the right can tell that these people are old minds, wise beyond their years, they are looking at life more differently than others. These people are drawn to older people or friends as they operate at a much more mature level than others of the same age.
