Palm Reading – Health Line

Location and Meaning

It goes without saying that the health line in palm line reading is associated with the health condition of a person. There is 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.

Absence of Health Line

If you find your health line missing in your hand, that’s a good sign. It means you are healthy and don’t have any health problem.

Wavy, Broken, Crossed

A wavy line warns you of potential health problems in digestive system and a decline of liver or gall bladder function. There is a high chance for you to suffer from gastrointestinal disorder. If it’s bent into a big arc, it shows you a great loss of strength or vigor. (Fig 1)

A broken line shows that the function of digestive system is declining. If the lines are terraced, the situation would be worse. (Fig 1)

Crossed by Short Lines
If your health line is crossed by some short lines, it indicates a poor health and you may tend to be prone to accidents.  (Fig 2)

Short or Composed of Many Short Lines
If the health line is very short or it’s composed of many short lines, it's also an indication of ill health. You are weak and sick in life with such a kind of line. (Fig 3)

Island, Chain, Star, Square, Spots, Cross, Triangle

Island or Chain
● Islands or donuts on the line hint you that you may suffer diseases of the liver and gall; have a poor kidney function or respiratory system. If the island is large, it’s an indication of mammary gland hyperplasia disease for female. (Fig 4)
● If the health line is chained, you usually have a poor health condition due to the diseased liver. (Fig 5)

Star on health line indicates it's hard for you to get support and help from your family members.
● The women who have a star at the crossing point of head line and health line usually have a difficult delivery or infertility. If the star forms a black area, it means you may suffer serious mental disorder when give birth. The men who have such a star usually have a low sexual function and it’s hard for them to get children. (Fig 6)
● If your health line arises from the Mount of Mercury which is located at the base of the little finger and a star appears at the starting point, you usually have no children in life. Also, you are easy to have problem in kidney and suffer gynecological disease. (Fig 7)

A square on the health line is a sign of surgery due to the heart problem. (Fig 8)

If you find some spots appear on the health line, it's an omen to illness. The red spots are the hints of fever and inflammation. (Fig 9)

The cross beside the health line denotes you are easy to suffer from some accidental damages which are a great harm to your health. (Fig 10)

If there is a triangle on the line, it hints you have some problem in mental health. You probably are psychologically unsound. If your head line is not good as well, you may suffer from a serious abnormal psychology. (Fig 11)

Length of Health Line

Crossing the Head Line
In general, for those who own a long health line are usually mental workers. But if the line crosses the head line, it shows the health may be affected owing to the excessive use of the brain. Especially after the middle age, you may find you always are in sub health state which requires more rest and care. (Fig 12)

Extending to the Mount of Venus
There must be something wrong with your blood circulating system if you find the health line extending to the Mount of Venus which is located at the base of the thumb. You should watch out the heart disease or a cerebral hemorrhage happen to you. You can get the pathogenic time by checking the intersecting point of the two lines. (Fig 13)

Touching Life Line
If you find your health line extends to the life line and ends there, it's an inauspicious sign for health. You may have a weak cardiovascular system which affects your normal blood circulation. (Fig 14)

Starting from Heart Line and Ends at Head Line
The health line arises from the heart line and ends at the head line hints that your brain is easy to suffer lesions. (Fig 15)

Extending to Bracelet Line
If your health line extends downward to the bracelet line, you usually suffer from shattered health in the whole life. In daily life, you are easy to be tired and difficult to recover. In addition, you usually are in sub health state for a long time. (Fig 16)

The Lucky Triangle

In general, the health line, head line and life line could form a triangle in your hand. It's thought to be an auspicious sign. The broader the area of the triangle is, the greater luck you will enjoy. (Fig 18)

What do our marriage lines mean? Will we be able to be together forever irl? (1 Reply ) Asked by P***P

Boy : On my left hand, I have only one deep marriage line that slightly curves down towards the heart line(the start of the line is a bit short but straight and the end curves down slightly, seems a bit long and slight curve) in the middle between little finger and heart line. On my right hand, I have only one deep marriage line that is a little above the middle of the point between little finger and heart line. That marriage line comes out straight but health line is connected to it in its middle. So it seems like ending in a fork that the upper branch of the fork is straight and the lower branch is the curved health line. Girl : I have one marriage line on my left hand that is straight but a small fragrant overlaps right above it. The line is in the middle between little finger and heart line. On my right hand, there are three marriage lines, one near the heart line that is short. In the middle between little finger and heart line, there is a long marriage line, quite deep, that forks in its middle(but a little faint in that forking area) and the upper branch of the fork goes straight and deep again and the end of that upper branch seems to fork again or forming an incomplete island that doesn’t touch in all ends like an oval or circle. And the uppermost marriage line is near the base of little finger and it’s deep, and it’s parallel to the middle marriage line. Seems to have the same length as middle line or maybe only slightly shorter than the upper branch(that goes straight quite long) of the fork of the middle line. The uppermost line is quite deep throughout its whole length and straight but near its end, it gives off a fade branch that inclines 45degrees upwards. Between the middle and uppermost line, there’s a fade line(more like a fade fragrament like the fragrament in my left hand). All the marriage lines in my right hand are interconnected with one another via loops between the lines or via upward branches of the lower lines that touches the lower branches of the upper lines.

Will we be able to be together forever? (1 Reply ) Asked by P***P

In his palm, there’s only one prominent marriage line that is far from heart line& goes to the half of his little finger & in the middle,it starts to fork &the top of the fork goes straight &at its end seems to have a small island. The bottom of the fork curves down a little bit & on average look,it seems to combine with the health line crossing the heart line down to the head line. So on average look,it seems like the bottom of the little fork curves down to the heart line&crosses heart line & down a little further to the above of the head line. But on close look,I realise the bottom of the fork is faint &curves down just a little bit & doesn’t even touch health line or heart line. In my palm, I can see two marriage lines that go to only 1/4of the little finger. The lower line is far from heart line, a bit thinner but slightly longer & forks in the middle &the bottom of the fork is faint. The top of the fork goes straight & seems to have a small island at the end. The upper line is a bit close to the base of little finger & seems a bit thicker,slightly shorter,& on average look,seems to have no fork. But when closely looked,it has a tiny fork in the end,the bottom of the fork goes straight & the faint top of the fork curves up towards the little finger. The lower & upper lines I said r parallel &not quite different in length,only a slight difference. &below the lower line & heart line,there r small very short faint lines.& between that lower&upper line I said,there’s a very slight short faint line that appeared recently. As for dates of birth, Male : 23.11.1998(Sydney,Australia,time around 1pm afternoon,doesn’t know exact time) Female : 11.9.2002(Yangon,Myanmar,10:05am morning) Right now,we live in different countries & r far apart. I’m living in Myanmar right now& my parents will probably send me to UK once I graduate. I m trying to move to Aussie for him but it’s gonna take long for me to move there. Can take up to 6-15years to get to Aussie. What do our palms mean? R we compatible? & I really wanna know if we will be able to get together even if there r difficulties. Will we have arranged marriage by our parents? Or will we be able to get married through our free love & have a life together? He is turning 23 this year & I m turning 19 this year. If we really r destined& can get married in the future& have a life together, when r we supposed to meet in real life & probably at what age are we gonna get married to each other? Thanks lots!!!!! I really wanna know those questions & thanks lots for answering &helping me! If what I mentioned about palm is not accurate & if you’d want a photo of our hands, I can send from mailbox. Pls tell me ur email(where to contact to know more). Thanks a lot a lot for ur time,Sir/Madaam 😊
