Palm reading is an interesting art or stream of knowledge for people who practice it and also those who believe in it. Palm reading makes future predictions about a person’s health, his/her married life, education and the also about the overall personality. In India palm reading is also used before a couple decides to get marries, since palm reading can also be used to judge the compatibility of the couple based on the lines on their hand. Some of the basic lines that are interpreted during pal reading are the life line, head line, heart line and the marriage line which is also known as the love line. For all the palmistry believers, here is some more information about the lifeline and the marriage line. Palm Reading: The Life Line The lifeline is the line on you right palm, which begins between the thumb and the index finger of the hand and encircles the mound at the base of the thumb. It may be extended downward unto the wrist. It is believed that the lifeline represents a person’s vitality and the length of life in general. The principles of palmistry say that special marks on the lifeline correspond to the specific events that have occurred in a person’s life. In general the lifeline can be divided into three parts. The first one represents youth, the second adulthood whereas the third part represents the old age.There are several other features of the lifeline that can be interpreted in terms of palmistry. The first being the length – if you lifeline is long and deep, then it indicates a life full of health and vitality. A short lifeline that is shallow represents a tendency to be controlled by others. However if you have a short yet strong lifeline, you need not worry. A short lifeline, which seems strong and deep enough, also represents a great life with and an ability to overcome all sorts of health problems. Addition of any extra lines to your lifeline are called vitality lines and are good for you since they mean added vitality to your life. In some cases, people also have doubled or tripled lifelines, which indicates the presence of a powerful positive energy around you. In case you have a lifeline that is very straight and sticks close to the side of your palm, it indicates an overly cautious nature. Palm Reading: The Marriage Line or the Love Line The marriage line or the love line is the line, which is generally found below the pinky finger. In terms of palmistry this area is known as the mount of mercury. The marriage line or the love line is a small line that seems to come from the outside edge of your palm. It is believed that multiple marriage lines indicate the occurrence of multiple marriages. In general any marks on the marriage line are not considered to be a positive sign. Small marks along the line can indicate extra-marital affairs. Moreover, if there is a cross on the marriage lines, it indicates a broken marriage or a broken engagement. Palm reading, taro cards and other horoscope predication method can be a moral booster in case the future predictions are positive. However a negative reading can be a source of constant concern and annoyance. So refer to these practices if you wish. However, always remember that you are the creator of your own future and no line or no horoscope prediction can make or break you… If you want to learn how to read palms, the first step is to understand the concept of active and passive hand. If a person is right-handed, his/her active hand would be the active hand, and that makes the left hand as the passive hand. The latent traits will be reflected by your passive hand and the active hand will give information on the personality traits you have inculcated by your efforts. Reading both the palms will help in defining the overall personality of the individual.Lines on the Palm To get a glimpse into your future, the palmist pays a great deal of attention to the lines on your palm. The most prominent lines on the palm are head line, heart line, life line and fate line. There are some other lines such as marriage line or smaller ones right below the little finger, which can determine the number of relationships you might have in your life. The deeper the lines, the more serious the relationship. Let’s talk about the life line now.
