palmistry major lines

If you are new to palm reading, or palmistry, it’s important to identify and understand the major lines across our hands and what they mean. Locating and analyzing these lines can help with understanding a person’s character and personality type as well as the type of path they follow in their life. There are 6 lines of high importance on our hands and they are seperated into 2 main groups; Major lines and Minor lines.

Today we take a look at the Major Lines to begin.


The Life Line

The Life Line

The life line starts from the palm edge between the thumb and forefinger and extends to the base of the thumb.

As with each person’s life, no life line will be exactly the same, and those differences are what provide us the insight we are looking for. If the person has a solid line it indicates a good pleasing life with good rewards.

If the life line changes it thickness and depth it can indicate a changing life with lots twists and turns. If the line is higher it indicates an ambitious person, whereas lines joining with the head of the life line can indication a cautious person.

Broken and wavy life lines can indicate a weakness of some kind in either the area of mental or physical capabilities. If the life line finishes in the fork it will show that the person will depend on the kindness of other people in their old age.


The Head Line

The Head Line

The head line is the second major line in palm reading, revealing a person’s wisdom, intelligence, attitude, thinking, and creative abilities.

The wider the gap between the head line and life line the more restless and active the person. It can also indicate that they are impatient.

If the head line actually joins up with the heart line at the start, then the person may have a lot of real suffering ahead. If the person has well defined and straight head lines this indicates clear and sound judgement.

However, if the line goes all the way to the edge of the palm then the person may have some ruthlessness about them and will put business first and people second. If the line is short the person will no try to hard and will give up quickly and easily. If the head line is weak it indicates a person who is soft and reluctant to branch out. A slightly wavy line shows a person who finds it hard to face the daily demands in their life while a chained line shows the presence of mental illness or a mental disability that may be coming in the future.


The Heart Line

The heart line, which is also known as the love line, is located just above the head line starting under the little finger and ending around the middle or index finger. The heart line holds the secrets of their relationships and romantic personalities and traits. A strong heart line its shows they are capable for true and faithful love. If the line starts high it can suggest a jealous type. While a low start suggests a serene and rational love, but if the line is to low to start it shows coldness. A duplicated line shows a long and not very happy affair. If there is a line close to the heart line then there is a good chance that someone close will die. A person without a heart line indicates love of self instead of others.
