Hand Lines in Palmistry

Palm Lines Reading

Palm line reading is the most important part of palmistry. People’s hand lines usually reveal individual personality and character traits.

In palmistry, there are mainly three major lines to read: Life Line, Head Line (also Wisdom Line) and Heart Line (also Love Line).

Besides, there are also some minor lines which are also important in palm line reading such as Marriage line, Fate line, Sun line, Children Line, Money Line, Health Line, Travel Line, Bracelet Line and Ring of Solomon.

Let’s look at what these lines mean separately.

Three Major Hand Lines

Life Line
The Life Line starts from the palm edge between the thumb and forefinger and extends to the base of the thumb. It reflects a person's physical vitality and life energy. Also, it shows if one will have accidents or serious illnesses during the whole life.

Head Line
The Head Line starts from the palm edge between the thumb and forefinger, and extends across the palm in the middle part with the life line below and the heart line above. reveals a person's wisdom, belief, attitude, thinking ability, strain capacity, creative ability as well as abilities of memory, self-control and more.

Heart Line
The heart line (also love line) is above the head line starting from the edge of the palm under the little finger, running across the palm and ending below the middle finger or forefinger or the place where they join. It 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. 

Simian Line (Heart Line Meets Head Line)

Minor Lines of the Palm

Marriage Line
The Marriage Line (also relationship line or affection line) is located below the base of the little finger just above the heart line. It mainly reflects the situation of your marriage life, love relationship, marriage time as well as your attitude towards love.

Fate Line
The Fate Line (also career line) is a vertical line running up the palm towards the base of the middle finger. The starting point can be anywhere from the base of the palm (most of the people find it begins from the middle part). It mainly reflects the fortune of one's career or job. From the line, you can find out the changes of your career during your life as well as your ability in work.

Sun Line
The Sun Line (also Apollo Line) originates from the Mount of Moon and descends upward to the Mount of Sun. mainly shows the capability, talent and popularity which may lead to success. So, it's also called the Line of Success. It’s regarded as a sister line to the Fate Line as it could boost the fate line.

Children Lines
The children lines are the upright lines below the base of little finger and above the marriage line. They indicate the number of children a person is likely to have in life and the life status of the children. The deeply marked lines indicate the birth of male children while the short, narrow and shallow lines suggest the birth of female children.

Money Lines
Money Lines are upright lines locating under the ring and little fingers. If the lines are many, deep clear and straight, it shows you are smart, good at investing and could make a fortune. To judge how much wealth a person will become, the money line itself is not enough. There are many other signs deciding if you could be rich in life.

Health Line
The Health Line has no fixed place of its starting point. It can be started from the base of the little finger and extends down across the palm to the base of the thumb. Also, it can starts under the heart line and ends without joining with the life line. In Chinese palmistry, the line of health is also called the unhealthy line. It usually appears in the hands of the person who is not healthy enough. But, it doesn’t mean that all kinds of health lines are bad. The straight line without touching the life line usually indicates a good health condition.

Travel Line
Travel lines, starting from the edge of the palm at the base, are the upward or horizontal lines found on the bottom half of the life line; the lines may be near, insect or pass through the life line. Travel lines are said to represent the opportunities of travelling or living abroad permanently because of studying, working abroad, or settling down and emigrating abroad because of marriage.

Bracelet Line
Bracelet lines (also known as the Rascette lines or wrist lines) are located at where the palm and the wrist join. Most of people have three bracelet lines but only a few have three complete bracelet lines with no messy lines or special marks.

Line of Mars
Line of Mars is the line almost parallel to the Life Line and it can even span from the starting point of Life Line to the wrist. The Line of Mars very close to the Life Line is called the support life line. The Line of Mars far away from the Life Line is named the family influence line.

More Lines to Read

Besides the major and minor lines on the palm, there also some lines located at the base of the fingers revealing people’s luck and personality. They are not found in each people’s hand such as the Girdle of Venus. Some of them are negative like Ring of Saturn and some are worth of owning like Ring of Solomon. Each of the line could help us learn the characters of the people. Now, let’s get the meanings of these lines.
Ring of Solomon
Ring of Solomon also Ring of Jupiter is located at the bottom of the index finger on the Mount of Jupiter. It can appear in a straight line or semi-circle. You are intelligent, intuitive and mysterious, like to study all kinds of mystery science if you own the line.

Ring of Saturn
Located at the Mount of Saturn, Ring of Saturn is the short semi-circle line which surrounds the middle finger at the base. People owning this line usually don’t know how to enjoy life, are inclined to be biased against some persons, gloomy in most times, and even more likely to commit suicide.

Girdle of Venus
Located above the Heart Line, Girdle of Venus is the arched line surrounding middle finger and ring finger. It’s also regarded as the sister line of Heart Line which is often seen on the soft palms. People with the Ring of Venus feature strong sense of beauty and talent in art and creation. They are very precocious and tend to have puppy love.

Ring of Mercury
Ring of Mercury starts between the ring and little fingers and bends to the palm edge. Ring of Mercury is very rare and people with the ring are prone to bold sexual behaviors. People with the ring can hardly keep loyal to their wives and they tend to give priority to their pleasure and ignore the needs of their wives.

Ring of Apollo
