I Read Palms

Ever bemused by the art of palm reading, palmistry, chiromancy, and hand analysis I've decided to refresh my basic palm reading skills. This form of fortune telling involves the practice of evaluating a person's character or future life by "reading" the palm of that person's hand. Various lines and mounts, purportedly suggest interpretations by their relative sizes, qualities, and intersections.

A reader usually begins by reading the person's dominant hand (sometimes considered to represent the conscious mind, whereas the other hand is subconscious). In some traditions of palmistry, the other hand is believed to carry hereditary or family traits, or, depending on the palmist's cosmological beliefs, to convey information about past-life or karmic conditions. So for now the hardest part is deciding which of the many traditions to follow!

  1. I have more lines on my hands then anyone I've ever met.....Where it says there's one, I have about 10! I went to see a fortune teller before and she told me as all the lines cross, that's a sign of success.
