Palm reading, palmistry or chiromancy is a practice that has been around for many, many years. This is something that was a tradition from the Indian times and was common in areas such as China, Babylon, Sumerian and more. These were ways that people could find out things such as their love life, personality, and their future.
The readers were able to tell things about people based on the size of their palms, the dips, and folds of their palm and more.
People would do palm reading because they would want to be able to help people through things in their life. This is something that is a skill that some psychics have, and it is easy to have but hard to develop. A palm reader has strong intuition and the practice can be improved as long as the practice.
People often assume that palm reading is only lines on the hand but the truth is that there are details that are part of your hand, palms and fingers and that they indicated things such as what element you have rather it is air, fire, water or earth.
The element and shape of your hand doesn’t have to do with astrology, but it has to do with the characteristics that define and represent who you are.
If you have an earth hand it means that your fingers will be short, and your hands are square. This person will be logical and reliable, but they will take the details of their life and will obsess over them. This kind of situation in their life can cause them to not be able to move forward.
Fire hands re people that have long palms and their fingers are short. These people are fiery and passionate, and they work hard. Most of these people attract others because they are very confident, and they communicate well.
People with fire hands allow their emotions to rule them and they have a hard time forgiving.
Air hands are people with tiny, bony fingers and knuckles and their palms are a square shape. These people are smart and like to be healthy. They are curious and communicate well.
These people make good friends and they often get bored if they do not stay busy in life.
Those that have long fingers and palms are water hands. These are people that are creative but sensitive in life. They are aware of their emotions and they have strong intuition. These people are psychic and are able to handle their stress because of their abilities.
Left or Right Hand
When you get a palm reading you need to give your dominate hand for them to read. Most people are right handed but the dominate hand should be used for reading even if you are left-handed. This can help to show your personality and your characteristics.
Using your dominate hands will help the reader to understand your life.
Mounts and Plains
The way that your hand is shaped with dips and mounts can help the reader to know more about you. There are different planets in this including Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and the Moon and Sun and when the mounds have a lot of flesh, this can mean positivity and when it is sunken, you need to improve your life.
Mount of Jupiter
This is the mount that is at the top of your index finger. This shows if you are a leader or not.
Mount of Saturn
This is at the base of the middle finger and symbolizes wisdom and integrity.
Mount of Apollo
This area represents the sun and is found below the ring finger. This is where your joy and energy are found.
Mount of Mercury
This is found at the end of the pinky finger. This can show how smart you are and how well you can talk to others.
Mount of Venus
This area is responsible for your sexuality and it controls your emotions. This is found below the thumb.
The lines on your hand can tell about your future. The mounds tell about your personality and your lines tell what is going to happen in your life.
When the lines run parallel or intersect it will mean different things. The palm reader will remember the names of the lines so that they know what they are talking about.
This is where your intelligence lies. This is in the center of the palm and shows your mental ideas. If the line is wavy it means that you are doing things that are against what is normal. A break in the line can mean you have problems in your life:
