What's palm reading, and how did it originate?

On repeated occasions, the Bible would allude to the palm of one's hand. The origins of palmistry or palm reading are said to be in India, even though Aristotle, the Greek philosopher, wrote the first treatise on the subject. Despite this, it was during the Middle Ages that the reading of the lines of the hand was most widely practiced. Palmistry was at this time practiced in secret as it was forbidden by the church, yet remains common today.

Since the lines on our hands do not change regularly, it’s useless to have them read every fortnight! However, it should be known that palmistry has interested scientists since the 19th century. Francis Galton's work on dermatoglyphic studies laid the foundations for fingerprints being used by the police to identify criminals. As for 20th century doctors, some believe that certain diseases are announced in the palm of our hands...

Originally, palm reading refers to the study of the palm of the hand. However, the hand is also studied in its entirety. This is why today we also deal with what's known as chirology (the study of the hand) which looks at both hands.

Hand

Before going into detail, you must first observe the shape of your hands (your 2 hands have the same shape, so only one is enough for this exercise, opt for the left hand). This will tell you which element your hand depends on.

How to read your palms in 4 steps

1) Identify the shape of your hand

There are 4 types of hand shapes; fire, earth, water and air; which correspond to the zodiac elements.

We've paired up hand shapes and the perfect professions for you. For example, if your hand is...:

  • Square in shape, it corresponds to the trades of craftsmanship or agriculture. It is the hand of Earth and is associated with the planet Mars.
  • Thin and oval, it is the hand of writers, psychologists and sometimes doctors. It is linked to the Water element and to the planet Venus or the Moon (if the skin is very white).
  • Fleshy, it is the hand of shopkeepers, physiotherapists, but also teachers who passionately transmit all their knowledge. It is represented by Fire and corresponds to the planet Jupiter.
  • Long and bony, the hand of Air is that of researchers, engineers and many intellectual professions. It is characterized by the planet Saturn.

Now that you know your hand shape, here are the character traits associated with you:

  • Fire: Ambitious and determined
  • Earth: Stable and sensible
  • Water: Touchy and caring
  • Air: Independent and smart

In order to read your palms properly, one must take into account all sorts of characteristics such as the suppleness of the palm and its temperature. Some people also look at the color of the veins that appear through the light, the length of the fingers in relation to each other. We also study each finger to learn more about its personality, character and maturity.

2. Examine your palm closely

From now on, comparing your two hands is important because you may see differences. By the way, did you know that all your fingers are associated with a planet? Here are the correspondences:

Thumb: Venus,

Index finger: Jupiter,

Middle finger: Saturn,

Ring finger: Apollo,

Pinkie: Mercury

Each finger has a small bump under it called a mount. So the thumb dominates the Mount of Venus and so on. Once you have observed these mounts (the main mounts because there are others), you can move on to the lines.

3. Analyze the main lines:

You can now look at the lines on your palm, and they will show you the main "lines" of your existence. You must compare your two hands because the lines can be very different. Some theories say that the left hand shows your potential and the right hand shows what actually happens, but this is just one opinion among many.

Heart line: Love and emotion

The love line runs horizontally across the palm. The head line is just below it, however the love line is related to sensuality, sexuality, emotional energies and romance.

  • If it starts under the middle finger, it means that your relationships are bothering you.
  • If it starts under the index finger, it is the opposite, you are serene about their condition.
  • If it is curved, communication is satisfactory with your partners.
  • A straight line indicates that you are either stable and approachable or shy and passive.
  • Its length and depth reveal the duration of your relationships, each duration of which is established by the separations and interruptions of the line.

Money Line: Career and fortune

This is a short secondary line located at the base of the little finger and runs downward. 

  • It’s a deep, long line indicates investment talent and possible future wealth. 
  • Here, a wavy or light line indicates effort.

Head Line: Intelligence and wisdom

This is above the lifeline and gives information about your intellectual level and mental abilities.

  • The longer it is, the more thoughtful you are, and if it is short, you are impulsive. 
  • A shallow line indicates difficulty in concentrating, a deep line indicates a good memory. 
  • Finally, if the upper part of the line is mixed with the lifeline, it means that you are anxious and fearful of making decisions.

Marriage Line: Married life and relationships

It or they are located on the edge of the hand, at the base of the fingers, under the little finger. They are also called the attachment lines or the union lines. They indicate the state of our marriage or emotional circle.

4. Do you have secondary lines?

  • Destiny line (formerly called the luck line): This line is important, whether we have it or not. For example, a child born with this line needs special guidance from his parents because he could more easily do something silly.
