How to read palms

How to read palms
Erik Mclean

Through our hands, How to read palms? we can learn a lot about a person’s character and disposition. Contrary to popular belief (or sometimes pretend) it is very difficult to “predict the future” from the lines on one’s hands. But maybe it’s for the better because it still allows us to exert influence ourselves and not completely depend on “our destiny”. Free will is one of the greatest gifts to man, and we do not serve ourselves by trading that free will for a completely fixed future!

The three most important hand lines are indicated on the left of the photo:

  • (1) . the Lifeline (blue)
  • (2) . the Mainline (green)
  • (3) . the Heartline (red)

(1) The Lifeline

The lifeline gives us information about how someone is in life, how energetic someone is and what their physical condition is like. Contrary to popular belief, you cannot directly deduce the length of your life from the length of the lifeline. That depends on many other factors.

In order to be able to interpret someone’s lifeline, we will look at the points of difference with an “ideal” line. An ideal lifeline is strong, relatively deep, and runs slightly curved and over the hand without breaks or branches. A long, strong, and deep Lifeline usually represents a strong and vital life.

A short, vague, and superficial Lifeline indicates more of a difficult life with health problems. We begin to compare the lifeline in both hands. If the lifeline in the left hand is less extensive than in the right hand, it means that a person has worked hard all his life to build an independent existence.

A break in the line usually indicates an illness. A break that is present in the left hand but not in the right hand can indicate a fairly serious illness. The location of the interruption is an indication of the age at which that serious illness will occur (or has already occurred).

(2) The Main Line

The Main Line has to do with things like reason and perception. The “ideal” Headline starts just above the Lifeline and ends in the middle of the palm, right below the little finger. Someone with such a Headline has a good mind, is realistic and independent.

If the Headline begins below the Lifeline, then we may be dealing with someone who is nervous, sensitive, and conservative, and to whom family is very important. If the Mainline touches the Lifeline, it indicates a strong personality who is talented and ambitious. The longer the Mainline is, the stronger these qualities will emerge.

A short Headline usually belongs to someone who is practical and sober by nature with a good memory but relatively little imagination. A long Headline that runs sharply downwards belongs to someone who is creative and has a lot of imagination and has a lot of interest in literature, art, or music.

But who, like someone whose Headline is a little vague or perhaps even completely lacking, has a somewhat flawed ability to concentrate on the same thing for long periods of time. A Headline very close to the Heartline means that the mind wins over the feeling.

If the two lines are not too far apart, then we are dealing with someone who is reliable and helpful. A Headline and Heartline that far apart indicate someone who is impatient and in a hurry.

(3) The Heartline

The Heartline relates to things that have to do with feeling, such as friendship, love, moods, and emotions. The Hartlijn also provides information about (current and possible future) relationships.

We start again by describing the “ideal” Heartline. (See the red line in the photo at the beginning of this article.) Well, the ideal Heartline starts between the index and middle fingers and runs in a gentle arc all the way to the edge of the hand below the little finger.

Such a Heartline indicates a righteous person, with a frank, sensitive, and open character. The deeper the line, the more sensitive the person is. If the line starts closer to the middle finger, then we’re probably dealing with someone less passionate.

A faint Heartline or a Heartline that is completely missing will indicate someone who has little feeling and is cold and uninterested in others. A heart line that becomes thin and fuzzy at the end is common in people who have relationship problems. Fractures in the Heartline indicate a broken relationship.

Multiple breakups indicate multiple love relationships. If the Centerline drops toward the Headline, it could indicate a childhood that was not very happy. But it can also indicate that lessons have been learned and that positive development has taken place.

A Heartline that starts mid-under the index finger belongs to someone who is reliable and you can rely on. Someone with a long Heartline is romantic and shows strong emotions, while a short Heartline indicates a lack of feeling and emotions.

Palmistry: everyone can learn it!

Palmistry is as old as mankind. The hand shapes, fingers, and nails all have something different to say about our character. The left and right hands tell us something different about our lives. All the lines that are visible on our hands let us know how our relationship, work, health, and the like are doing.

Hand shape

To determine the hand shape, look at the palm from the wrist to the fingers. With the left hand, we look at the qualities and character traits, while the right hand shows us how we have developed this aptitude.

The Square Hand

Has square fingertips, nicely shaped fingers, an angular outside of the palm, and a square base of the hand. This hand can be found in every category of the population. People with such a hand often have fixed habits, great respect for laws, are practical, orderly, and logically thinking. They are patient, but can also be stubborn.

The Philosophical Hand

Has long, knobbly fingers, the palms of which are rectangular or square. People with such a hand always want to understand everything and always think deeply before making a decision.

The Psychic Hand

Has narrow fingers and a long palm. These are usually very well-groomed hands.

The mixed hand

Here the fingers and the palm can have so many different shapes. If you can’t recognize a hand in any of the other hands, you have a mixed hand.

The spatula-shaped hand The

fingers resemble a spatula and the palm is usually angular and has a widening at the top or bottom.

The elementary hand

This hand usually has short rectangular fingers. The whole hand appears broad and clumsy and the palm is thick. It usually points to instinctive reactions.

The conical hand

The circumference of the hand is somewhat rounder, in fact, everything is a bit rounder, both the fingers and the palm. The middle finger is usually the longest and the little finger is often set low. These people love new experiences, variety, they get bored quickly and definitely want to try everything once.

the little hand

Left or right handed

The left side of the brain controls the right side of the body and the right side controls the left side of our body. Because left-handers live in a world where most are right-handed, their attentiveness is very well developed. Links handy are quick to understand.

The 4 elements

In many things, the 4 elements, fire, earth, air, and earth keep coming back. Fingers are long if the middle finger is the same length or slightly longer than the palm. You can measure this from the base of the hand to the base of the middle finger. If it is shorter than the palm, we speak of short fingers.

the fire hand

In a fire hand, the fingers are shorter than the palm and their base is spatula-shaped. Fire hand people are excellent at solving problems. Often these people work for the police, fire brigade, or ambulance because they are good in emergency situations. Usually, it is also good to look for activities with a mental challenge.

The Earth Hand

The water hand

People with water hands often do social work or assistance and they are very good listeners. These people also often turn out to be good writers, as long as they are not presented with a deadline.


If there is a lot of space between index and middle fingers, you have a lot of confidence and you are independent. A real leader type. If there is a lot of space between middle and ring fingers, you are resourceful, but also a bit selfish. You have to be a little more considerate of others. If there is a lot of space between the ring finger and little finger, then you like to go your own way. You like space and don’t like wasting time or energy. If you have a lot of space between all your fingers, you love individuality and freedom.

This indicates a stable personality. People with such fingers are loyal, honest, and reliable friends. The shell-shaped nail: These indicate poor health, usually due to a severe shock. The claw-shaped nail: These usually indicate a bad eating habit that affects health. The square nail: These usually indicate a critical nature, possibly the person has a lack of emotion.

The Lines in Hand

The Lines in Hand The Lifeline A short lifeline doesn’t mean you’ll live a short life, it just means you’re a little more sensitive.

The main line
