The number and quality of lines can also be included in the hand shape analysis; in some traditions of palmistry, Earth and Water hands tend to have fewer, deeper lines, while Air and Fire hands are more likely to show more lines with less clear definition. Lines[ edit ] Some of the lines of the hand in palmistry: 1: Life line - 2: Head line - 3: Heart line - 4: Girdle of Venus - 5: Sun line - 6: Mercury line - 7: Fate line The three lines found on almost all hands, and generally given most weight by palmists: The heart line is the first of the major lines examined by a reader and represents love and attraction.
In some traditions, the line is read as starting from the edge of the palm under the little finger and flowing across the palm towards the thumb; in others, it is seen as starting under the fingers and flowing toward the outside edge of the palm. Palmists interpret this line to represent their subject's emotional life; it is therefore believed to give an insight into how the emotional side of their mindframe will act out and be acted upon during their lifetime.
The line is also claimed to indicate romantic perspectives and intimate relationships, and a chained or gridded heart line is said to point to a flirtatious attitude to love, and one which can be prone to fall in love easily. The heart line is said to be indirectly associated with heart health: a chained heart line is purportedly associated with high blood pressure, or with an 'adrenaline junkie' attitude in life.
The next line identified by palmists is the head line. This line starts at the edge of the palm under the index finger and flows across the palm towards the outside edge.
Often, the head line is joined with the life line see below at inception. Palmists generally interpret this line to represent their subject's mind and the way it works, including learning style, communication style, intellectualism, and thirst for knowledge. It is also believed to indicate a preference for creative or analytical approaches to information i.
The life line is perhaps the most controversial line on the hand. This line is believed to represent the person's vitality and vigor, physical health and general well being. The life line is also believed to reflect major life changes, including cataclysmic events, physical injuries, and relocations. Modern palmists generally do not believe that the length of a person's life line is tied to the length of a person's life. The combined length of these three main lines heart, head, life can also be of interest.
It is said that if this combined length is longer than the subject's foot, they may be over bearing, and if it is shorter they may give in too easily to other people, whereas a similar length suggests a well balanced individual. Additional major lines or variations include: A simian crease , or fusing of the heart and head lines, has special significance, since this single line must be read to infer details about a subject's emotional and reasoning nature.
According to Cheiro,[ citation needed ] this line is thought to endow a person with an intensity of purpose or single-mindedness, the nature of which is decided upon by exact position of this line on the hand and the direction of any branches shooting from it. In hands where such a line exists without any branches as a singular mark, it is taken to indicate an extremely intense nature and special care is needed for such persons.
The normal position for the simian crease is starting below the index finger and ending where normally the heart line terminates at the edge of the hand below the little finger.
The upper part of the palm lying immediately below the fingers is considered to represent the higher or intellectual nature and the lower part of the palm to represent the materialistic side of the nature.
If one of these parts is larger than the other, as decided by the central placement of the simian crease, it shows greater development of that aspect of the nature. Based on this general principle, if the simian crease is placed below its normal position it indicates an intensely intellectual nature.
If it is placed above its normal position it indicates an intensely materialistic nature and interests. The direction in which any branches may be found shooting from this line are used to infer more details about the subject's temperament. The fate line runs from the bottom of the palm near the wrist, up through the center of the palm towards the middle finger.
This line is believed to be tied to the person's life path, including school and career choices, successes and obstacles. Sometimes this line is thought to reflect circumstances beyond the individual's control, or alternately the person's choices and their consequences.

Mercury line - runs from the bottom of the palm near the wrist, up through the palm towards the little finger; purported to be an indicator of persistent health issues, business acumen, or skill in communication.
Travel lines - these are horizontal lines found on the percussive edge of the palm between the wrist and the heart line; each line is said to represent a trip taken by the subject - the longer the line, the more important the trip is to the subject. Other markings - these include stars, crosses, triangles, squares, tridents, and rings under each of the fingers; their supposed impact and meaning varies by location on the palm and freedom from other interfering lines.
Criticism[ edit ] Criticism of palmistry often rests with the lack of empirical evidence supporting its efficacy. Scientific literature typically regards palmistry as a pseudoscientific or superstitious belief.
