In particular, the 3 major lines in palm reading stand for mental energy (head line), physical energy (life line), and emotional energy (heart line), or mind, body, and soul, in simple terms. Of course, they’re found on every hand, even though the head line and heart line, sometimes, can be merged into just 1 line, known as the simian line.
In fact, the main aim of this article is to provide us with some basic info about two of these lines (love and life line) without discovering too much in detail. Our own palm lines can be different from what’ll be mentioned here, yet most of the time, the explanations below will surely give us a good start in palmistry.
Keep in mind the following rules helpful in helping us to interpret hand lines:
- Straight lines are more rigid, and seeking for order.
- Curved lines are more flexible, and seeking for harmony.
The Life Line
The line often begins between the thumb and forefinger and then encircles the base of the thumb towards the wrist. Generally, it deals with the way we use our energy, and it’s most frequently short, diagonal, long or round.
If it is continuously round without any break, we may have a really harmonious physical life and are blissful of “going with the flow.” However, if it seems to be short, it does not mean that we’re going to die at a young age. Instead, it simply denotes that there shall be a moment in our whole life when we will use our body in a varied and less physical fashion than before, perhaps due to the cessation of an occupation (retirement), a change in activity (i.e. from active to sedentary), or something else which will modify the use of the body.
The Heart Line
Situated beneath the base of the fingers, the love line (also called the heart line) often displays feelings and emotions. A typical line might be long and curving down, long and curving upward, round and reaching between the middle and index finger.
Basically, a long and continuous line, curving upward to reach the mount below the index finger, unfolds a strong ability to love and express emotion spontaneously. At this time, owner of the line has a sincere, open, and even emotionally sound temperament. However, in case it’s long, but goes down towards the thumb, love seems to be more rational, for instance, we can need reasons to love and expect a lot from our sweetheart.
If the heart line is round, and then reaches between the index and middle finger, we can be sentimental, and want to make sure that our decisions will not be ruled by our emotions.
