Everyone has this inquisitive nature of wanting to know everything including what the future holds. With the help of palm reading, you can take a sneak peek of what the future has in store for you. Or if you find that too much to believe, palm reading can let you know yourself better.

Palm reading may be old-fashioned but there's a lot you can learn if you know how to read palms. Learning palm reading could even improve your relationship with others.

Palmistry is not as difficult as other types of psychic reading. Although, it may take a while for you to perfect the skill, learning it is worth your while.

In this article, you'll find information on Palmistry that has been simplified so that you can understand it even better. Read on.


Well, since we're talking about palmistry, we'll be talking about the hands. There are different conceptions about palmistry, but ideally, you need to read both hands to get a clearer message.

One major idea is that the left-hand displays potential while the right-hand displays how you've used that potential. In simpler terms, some palm readers say "the left is what the gods give you, the right is what you do with it".

Majorly, there are four types of hands and they are related to the elements. Don't get it twisted; your astrological sign could be an air sign but your hand might not. Check out how they're classified below.
  • Earth hands​

They are wide and usually have square palms and fingers, and the texture of their palm skin is usually rough and ruddy looking. The palms of an earth hand are usually equal to the length of the fingers.

Earth hand owners are usually intelligent, level-headed and reasonable. They'd rather take charge of their lives, get into the real world and do the real thing. They can be reluctant to accept new changes and ideas and they'd rather be outdoors.
  • Air hands​

Air hands usually take a square or rectangular shape with long fingers. They are characterised by protruding knuckles, low thumbs and dry skin. The palm is often as long as the fingers.

People with air hands are very intelligent, they are always on the go to get things done. However, they're easily affected by happenings around them which can cause them stress. And when this happens, they tend to lock themselves up in their shells and this affects their relationship with even their close ones.
  • Water hands​

Water hands are usually short, with an oval shape, but with long and flexible fingers. Their palm is wider than it is long and their finger is the same height as their palm.

People with water hands are soft-hearted and they always do less stressful things. They get very emotional and they get affected by little things.
  • Fire hand​

Fire hands have a square or rectangular palm, flushed or pink skin, and shorter fingers. The length of the palm is usually greater than the length of the fingers.

People with fire hands are so full of energy. They like to get things done and they may become intolerant of anyone that's impeding activities. They're often agile and fierce and often make great leaders.


You can get a lot of information about a person from the lines on their palms. Below you'll learn more about the lines on the palm.
  • The heart line​

From the heart line, you can find out about everything concerning love.

If your heart line begins from under your index finger, it means you're content with your love life. If it begins from under your middle finger, you're selfish in love. If it begins from the middle of your first finger and your middle finger, it means that you fall easily in love.

If you have a short heart line, it means you'd rather not be involved in romance. If your heart line and life line meet, it means your heart is fragile and can break easily. If you have a long and curvy heart line it means you show emotions and feelings easily.

If your heart line links parallel to your life line it means you're special in practical love matters. If your heart line is wavy, it means you're likely to have many lovers.

If your heart line has a circle on it, it means sadness or depression. If your heart line looks like it's broken, it signifies a kind of emotional trauma.
  • The headline​

The headline shows your knowledge and intellectual capability. A curvy headline shows creativity and instinctiveness while a straight line shows practicality and structure.

A short headline means you'd rather overcome physical challenges than intellectual ones. A wavy headline shows that you easily lose concentration and attention while a long line shows that you think a lot to achieve results. A straight headline shows that you believe in reality.

If your headline doesn't link with your life line it means you care so much about adventures and little about their risks.
If you have a circle on your headline, it shows you're dealing with some emotional crisis of some sort. Multiple crosses on your headline signify that most of your achievements will be based on big decisions you'll have to take.
  • The Lifeline​

The lifeline depicts destiny. With the lifeline, you can get information about your character and other significant happenings in your life. And there's this popular idea that the length of your lifeline determines your life span; that opinion is false.

If your lifeline is close to your thumb, it means you usually don't have the strength for many things. On the other hand, if you have a wide curvy lifeline, it means you're energetic. If your lifeline curves in a semicircle, it means you're strong and full of energy. If you have a straight lifeline it means you're always careful in your relationship with others.

A long deep lifeline shows you're energetic while a short and shallow lifeline shows others easily influence you.

If there's a circle on your lifeline, it means you get injured or hospitalized.
  • The fate line​

The fate line can be read together with the life line to predict the future. However, the fate line is peculiar to only a few people so don't feel bad if you don't have a fate line.

A deep fate line signifies that your destiny has more control over your life. If there are breaks on your fate line, it means your life can be interrupted by outside forces.

A fate line that links with the lifeline signifies you're a person with goals and ambitions.


Mount reading is another part of palmistry and it's not difficult to do. The mount is that spongy fleshy pad that's just under your fingers. To read the mount, you just need to check the height. Their heights are high, low and flat. You'll get the information you're looking for from how visible the mounts are. The mounts are similar to the seven classical planets in astrology: Apollo(the sun), Luna(the moon), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
  • What is Mount Jupiter?​

Mount Jupiter is situated just at the base of the index finger. Mount Jupiter signifies confidence, goals and leadership. The Jupiter mount shows a connection to the spiritual realm and also divine inherent abilities.
  • What is Mount Saturn?​

Mount Saturn is situated below the middle finger. This area signifies wisdom, responsibility and courage. It reveals an individual's courage, integrity and how they handle situations in life.
  • What is Mount Apollo?​

It is located beneath the ring finger. In palmistry, this mount signifies an individual's optimism, energy and purpose.

Mount Apollo reveals an individual's artistic inclinations and how successful an individual can be.
  • What is Mount Mercury?​

Mount mercury is located beneath the pinky finger. It is related to communication and intelligence. Mount Mercury corresponds to wit, ability to change and relationships with others. It showcases how an individual thinks and how resourceful he is.
  • What is Mount Luna?​

Mount luna signifies imagination, intuitive abilities and psychic powers. It is situated almost toward the bottom of the palm on the pinky side. This area reveals the empathy, compassion and imagination of an individual.
  • What is Mount Venus?​

It is situated at the base of the thumb. Mount venus is related to love, sensuality and attraction. This area reveals an individual's sexuality, passion and exuberances. Emotional connection to romance and natural magnetism are all under this region.
  • What are the Inner Mars, Outer Mars, and the Plain of Mars?​

In palmistry, you'll come across the term mars often. Mars is named after the Roman god of war and these different sections depict; inner Mars(aggression), outer Mars(resilience) and plain of Mars(temperament).

The inner Mars is situated just above the thumb and it can also be called lower Mars. It signifies strength.

Outer Mars signifies emotional bravery.

The plain of mars is located at the lower centre of the palm and it shows how the other qualities are balanced.

On a final note;​

Palmistry is not a specific way to define an individual. However, it's an age-long tradition that has proven to be effective and useful.

As you practise hand shapes, mounts and lines, you'll discover more ways to interpret them. Also, bear in mind that just like people, hands change too. Palmistry is not enough to define your destiny, it just provides an understanding and insight into making better decisions.
