what is palmistry?

Palmistry or Chiromancy is the art and science of reading a person's palm lines. This reading is used to interpret certain character traits as well as foretelling the future through the study of palm. Also known as Chirology or Palm Reading in popular culture, this is prevalent in many countries across the world, with regional and cultural variations.

There are a number of schools of palmistry with their own variations and interpretations of lines and palmar features.Everyone's hand or palm naturally develops lines which we refer to as the 'palm lines' or 'fate lines'. We are all born with these 'palm lines'. It is said that the palm lines on one of our hands remain fixed throughout our life, whereas the lines on the other can change during the course of our life. The permanent lines represent the fate that we were born with, whereas the changing lines represent the present situation based on our free will and our actions to date.

basic heart line meaning

The heart line, also known as the love line or mensal line, gives an indication about a persons emotional state and their emotional and physical relationships with others. It can also be looked at as a predictor of the health of the heart. The heart line usually shows a person's attitude to love and quality of love. Whether you have a deep affection or not, your emotion is complicated or simple, if your love and marriage life go smoothly and whether you could have a good personal relationship can all be reflected from the line.

Basic Head Line Meaning

The head line, also known as the wisdom line (considered one of the most important lines in Chinese palmistry), reveals mental and psychological makeup and intellectual development and intuitive abilities. This line begins just above the life line, between the thumb and the index finger and runs across the palm toward the other edge of the palm horizontally. Sometimes the head line begins directly on the life line and extends out from there. This means that you have a strong will ? mind over matter.
