The Basic Understanding of Palm Reading
Otherwise known as chiromancy or palmistry, palm reading is a common form of art that is practiced in all parts of the world. In this write-up, we're going to create a basic understanding of this interesting ancient Indian mastery.
How to determine the hand to be read.
Determining the hand to be read is normally one of the most basic skills that one has to acquire in mastering this art. Every person has two hands. One hand is the active hand while the other one is the passive hand. The selection criterion depends on the individual whose hand is going to be read. For instance, if the person is left handed then his active hand is his left hand while his right hand becomes the passive hand. Vice versa holds for the right handed individuals. Usually, the active hand contains very specific inherited traits that can be used to determine one's destiny.
Understanding the Structure of The Hand
You need to understand in mastering the art of palm reading is the structure of the hand. Different hands have different shapes and sizes; all these factors can be used to interpret destiny of someone. Let’s now understand how different hand features carry different messages.
Basically, the shape of the hand is subdivided into four distinctive elements, namely: water, air, earth and fire. Those categorized under the earth shape usually have short fingers, square shaped palms with deep and straight lines. People with air hands normally have longer fingers, square shaped palms and clearly articulated palm lines. Water hands are normally oval shaped with long fingers and a soft skin. Those with fire hands have short fingers, long palms and well defined clear skin. People with earth hands are generally modest, water hands represent sensitivity, fire hands represent confidence and air hands are found in friendly sociable individuals.
Another dimension of interpreting the structure of the hand is by looking at the size of the hand. Basically people with small hands tend to be more impulsive.
One can also learn a lot by observing the flexibility of the thumb. A highly flexible thumb shows that you're accommodative and adaptive and a rigid thumb shows that one is obstinate.
*The Palm Line
The palm line carries a lot of information that can be used to interpret some essential details about the personality of someone. There are different palm lines that are used in palmistry i.e. the health line, the travel line, the marriage line, the success line and the line of fate.
~Life Line: This line is found between the index finger and the thumb stretching downwards to the edge of the palm.
~The Fate Line: This line can be absent on the hands some people. It normally extends from the middle of the palm vertically downwards to the wrist.
~The Marriage Line: This line can be found below the little finger, this line contains information about ones marital life.
In conclusion, palm reading is a very interesting form of art. There are so many dimensions that one can't take in discussing this topic. In this article we have created a basic understanding on some useful concepts in this area.
