The study is not transitory rather it is an ongoing process unto your last breath.  Al though, it is not possible to articulate the palmistry in few line, yet we must go through some of the basic aspects of studying this science.

Type Of Hands Based On Quality:

The first concept of palmistry is the knowledge of active hands and passive hands. For every person, there is an active hand which dominates or tries to dominate all the possibilities of life and consider the majority of things in a person’s life.  Whereas, passive hand is non-dominant one and helps in considering the characteristics of a person.  But it is important to mention that both the active and passive hands should be taken into consideration in the art of studying hands.

It will be interesting to know that even the shape of our hands also says a lot of things about the overall persona of an individual. Color of our skin and the shape, size, and length of each finger as well plays a key role in palmistry. There are various classifications of groups of hands. Elaborately,

Square hands: short, square fingers and fingertips are key features of square hands. The palm of the square hand is larger than others and people with such hands are practical in dealing matters, influential and dominating in every possible field.

Conic hands: The conic shape hand is for the creative. The narrow base and long fingers are features, smooth and pointed at the tips. The palm is approximately proportionate carries a flinch of the grace. It has been observed that artists have such kind of artistic hands.

Elementary hands:  club-shaped hands with short fingers and square tips. The skin is rough than the other shapes with distinctive lines. People with elementary hands are hardworking, down-to-earth and easy to possess.

Spatulate hands: The feature of this kind of hand is square shaped with a broad base and small thumb. These hands carry deep lines with soft palm. People with Spatulate hands are confident in their own way, social, and loving.

Philosophic hands: Philosophic hands have unique features with firm and long fingers. The fingertips are fleshy and people with these features are great philosophers, diplomatic and calm.

Psychic hands: Psychic hands are slender and long with a narrow and thin palm. People with psychic hands are tending to be idealistic, humble and calm and imaginative in nature.

Mixed hands: in palmistry mixed hands creates a lot of significance. The shape of the palm is square and the shapes of the fingers vary from one to another. People with mixed hands are very adaptive and compassionate and they turn out to be able managers especially multitasking.

The Major Palm Lines:

Of all the lines in your palms, four are primary – the lifeline, the heart line, the headline, and the fate line. The fourth line is not available in every hand.

  • Palmistry life line –we must conclude the misconception that lifeline can reveal your lifespan but they stands for the zeal, success, and prosperity in your life exclusively.
  • Palmistry heart line – Runs almost horizontally across your palm with a slight curve considering the influence of your heart in your physical and emotional ability. Heart line depicts our future decision-making skill in your life.
  • The headline – placed in between the lifeline and the heart line in the middle of the palm and detects the status of your mind and brain.
  • Palmistry fate line – although it is not found in every hands, they runs from the base of the palm to the middle, almost vertically and determines a person’s highs and lows in career, and finances.
  • Palmistry Money line – They are upright lines locating under the ring and little fingers.

Palmistry predictions are based on the length, depth, and transparency of the lines. The lines of the palm are not a sudden phenomenon but shaped when a child form a fist in their mother’s womb, lines’ intensity depends on how strongly the fist was made. The entire process is scientifically on the physical and mental health of the mother and the condition of the child as a fetus. The healthier a baby, the more clearly will be the lines. This, however, has nothing to do with our future. For instance, a less firmed fist hand is not necessarily living a short lifespan. In fact, this individual can live more than a strong lined palm of a healthy baby with a deeper lifeline. It’s all relative and determines through course of time how a person chooses to live his life.
