Half-knowledge about palmistry is dangerous


The practice of palmistry is an art. The same line or sign in two different hands means two different things. More importantly, no sign on the hand or line on the palm can be important enough to tell you about the person’s character or future. Hand and palm prints should be read in combination. It also takes a lot of practice to really assess each sign and see if a heavy hand is really tough or if a thumb is longer than average. Jumping to conclusions can give an incorrect reading.

the frame is important

The most important thing is the shape of the hand and its texture, and consistency. Texture and consistency are two different things and only practice can make one recognize a soft hand from a flabby one. So one has to know if a hand is long or short, narrow or wide and also the size of the hand (compared to the size of the person). The relative length and position of the fingers and thumb are also very important and will all give a different reading, even if the lines look similar.

evaluating hand

Since the fingers look different from different angles and their position also depends on how the person holds their hand (if it is the natural position), one must be very careful that the conclusion is correct. In addition, there is the question of the position of a finger (either low or high set) and this can confuse the palmist as to the actual length of the finger.

Then there are important questions like: if a finger is short but long, do the qualities of the fingers apply? Well, for this one has to resort to the general shape of the hand and the position of the other fingers. And yes, the lines and frames can also help you make that decision.

Sometimes different signs will give conflicting readings and one has to see how much of a particular quality a person has. For example, if you are aggressive, how aggressive are you on a scale of 1-10? So it is a matter of judgment on the part of the palmist so he takes into account all the signs.

Sounds complicated? This! Unfortunately, amateurs tend to jump to conclusions by looking at a sign and not taking hand type into account. This has given palmistry a bad name.

The mounts should be read in conjunction with the hand type.

The relative strength of the mounts must be taken into account at all times, not just the strength of each individual mount. And this must be read with the strength of the fingers.

It is necessary to examine very carefully what part of the mount is developed, the upper, the middle or the lower. Each gives a different reading. Locating the vertex of each hill is of great help to know the strength of each hill, and also to know if it is the lower or the upper side that is being developed. If a vertex leans towards another finger, it reduces the strength of the mount.

Once one has read the hand type and mounts, the decision must be made as to which world the subject moves into. The superior or mental world, the average or material world or the animal world. Few people will be pure specimens and therefore qualities need to be applied in a moderate and balanced way, seeing which mounts have developed the upper side and which mounts have developed the lower side.

Then you can start reading the lines.

reading lines

To read lines one has to apply the same principles. Relative strength is the first thing one looks for in a palm print. For example, a thin, wispy headline on a flat, pale hand with other similar lines will have a completely different meaning from a thin headline on a line with other deeply etched lines. Or a fine line in a meaty hand with other fine lines. The readings will be completely different, not even close! Just as a highly developed mount on a flat hand has extraordinary significance when compared to a highly developed mount on a hand with other highly developed mounts. You will be surprised to see the variations in different hands. Because no two people are the same.

While major lines are easy to distinguish, care must be taken not to confuse minor or random lines with major ones.

Reading the lines on the palm can give you a clue about future trends, but remember that the lines tend to change faster, much faster than the hand itself. The reason is that a person’s future changes depending on how he reacts to events, and also circumstances, which can keep changing. Yes, even the shape of the fingers and the frames change, if a person can change a particular trait. This will have an immediate impact on the lanes, for better or worse.

Incorrect assumptions about palmistry

I recently came across a question on Yahoo Answers where a person had asked if palmistry has any authenticity. The “best answer” chosen was an answer saying that palmistry has hardly any credibility because life span and life line have been shown to be completely unrelated. But of course, the length of life is not determined by the length of the life line! A mistake on the part of hobbyists (who usually acquire this knowledge by reading some book halfway) is to assume that a long Lifeline means a long life or that a short Lifeline means a short life. Could not be farther from the truth.


Be careful not to fall into the trap of believing that palmistry can predict the future with certainty. Your character is your destiny and authentic palmistry takes it into account. Another trap that one can fall into is believing that they can master palmistry in a few months. This is impossible as one has to look at hundreds of hands just to be able to tell what is what, let alone begin to do an accurate analysis.

And as in all professions, in palmistry also half knowledge is the most dangerous of all. It is the half-knowledge of many would-be palmists that has reduced the credibility of palm reading. It’s a shame because palm reading can be used in company HR departments, and wherever screening people is important. And it can also be used for self-help. Self-knowledge is power. Then you have the power to change your life.
