The Major Lines Of Palmistry

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape
There are 4 major palm reading lines in most hands.

The major lines in your hand are the Life Line, the Heart Line, the Head Line, and the Fate Line.

The major lines give basic information about you, like how you function physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Of course, the major lines of palmistry are only one source of information, and other parts of the hand can tell you much about each of these categories too.

Here's an introduction to these lines of palmistry.

How to interpret them will be discovered in the articles on line quality and placement.

1. Palm Reading -- Life Line

The Life Line curves around the base of the thumb, starting between the index finger and thumb.

Contrary to popular misconception, the length of the Life Line does not determine how long you will live.

In palm reading, the Life Line shows

  • Health
  • Vitality and general energy level
  • Sexuality
  • Quality of life
  • Prosperity
Here's a neat tip. In palmistry a double Life Line is seen fairly often. This line echoes the Life Line, but can be even less than half as long, held within the curve of the Life Line. This is often called an Angel Line, and signifies that angels or other higher powers are watching over and protecting you.

Even if you don't believe in angels, a double Life Line increases the power of health and vitality in a person.

The longer the double Life Line, the better!

2. PalmReading -- Head Line

The Head Line runs horizontally across the middle of the palm. It reflects your mind and brain.

The Head Line shows things like ...

  • Level of intelligence,
  • Type of intelligence,
  • Memory,
  • Concentration.
Rarely in palmistry a double Head Line is seen. Doubling a line usually strengthens its energy, but only if they are in harmony.

This often indicates someone with a lot of talent and an instinct for business. They will tend to do well in life.

If the double Head Lines go in different directions or seem far apart, it can indicate more of a double-personality... that is, the person will have two mental perspectives that conflict, and they will consequently have trouble "knowing their own mind."

Of course, this is not to be confused with one head line ending and another overlapping or beginning after a space. That is a broken head line.

3. Palm Reading -- Heart (Love) Line

The heart line runs horizontally across the top of the hand. It reflects your heart, on both physical and emotional levels.

It demonstrates...

  • Emotionality,
  • Passion and sensuality,
  • Ability to love and accept love,
  • Emotional maturity,
  • Manner of relationships.
The Heart Line is one of the most important lines of palmistry, especially in this age of transition for humanity.

4. Palm Reading -- Fate Line

The Fate Line runs vertically from the base of the palm up the middle of the palm, more or less.

The Fate Line in palmistry is sometimes considered a minor line, rather than a major line. It doesn't show up in every hand. Yet it is a dominant line, compared to the other minor lines.

To get you started, and because most people want to know about their "fate," let's look at what it means.

The Fate Line shows...

  • Success
  • "Pre-destined" vocation
  • Career path
  • Possible types of Career

With Bright Blessings,
