THE MAJOR LINES: Heart, head, life & fate
These four key lines can revel our strengths and what we need to work on
If it runs all the way to the bottom of the palm, you’re down-to-earth. A short line doesn't mean a short life, it shows you’re highly spiritual. Your challenge is not to be overwhelmed by worries about your security.
If deeper and longer than the other major lines on the same palm you’re ‘ruled by the heart’. Your challenge is to reign in emotional behaviour.
If this line is the strongest of your four lines, you think deeply and analyse at length before acting. Your challenge is to be more spontaneous.
If this line is your strongest line, you have the strength of character to achieve goals. Your challenge is to not be single-minded at all costs.
in a good, natural light. Do remember palm-reading isn’t entertainment, but a very powerful tool to be used wisely. Don’t rush your reading or do it in a busy, social situation. Finally, don’t guess about markings you don’t know. There will always be signs you don’t recognize – everyone’s palm is different – just focus on signs you know the meaning of,’ says Johnny. Now you are ready to get started. passive hand that’s the true revealer, as it shows your deeper characteristics and represents your authentic personality. See the active palm as showing the working, fully awake person and the passive as revealing what’s buried and sleeping underneath.
'If the lines are very different on each palm it shows there’s likely to have been huge change and development in your life. You are probably on a journey with a great deal of learning and growing still to do. Very different active and passive hands also show that the ‘you’ you show to others is very different to the inner you.'
Active hands and passive hands
A palm reading should always look at both hands in relation to one another because they reveal very different things.
‘Each of us has an ‘active’ hand and a ‘passive’ hand,’ explains Johnny. Looking at just one or the other only tells half the story. ‘Your ‘active’ hand is the right hand if you’re right handed and vice-versa if you’re left handed. It’s the
How deep are your palm lines?
Deep, straight lines on the active palm are strong torrents of energy, and indicative of a person who is direct, forceful and passionate.
Curved, faint lines or lines that are made up of little bubbles (known as ‘islands’) are found
on complex personalities who are likely to be timid, but still self-aware.
If the palm is criss-crossed with hundreds of lines, this shows a person with an abundance of nervous energy, who has a tendency to feel overwhelmed and anxious.
Where there are only four deep lines on the palm, and no other lines visible, the personality is a ‘what you see is what you get’ type. They are straight-talking and often find it extremely difficult to deal with people who are highly strung and complicated.
Reading finger length
You might be surprised to know that one of the biggest revealers of your personality is actually the length of your fingers.
The index finger, or ‘mirror’ finger, is the most important as it relates to self-reflection and your ego, while your ring or ‘peacock’ finger shows your need for attention. Find out what these two digits say about you by placing a straight edge along the tip of both fingers (pushing the middle one back out of the way) and getting your ruler out to take and compare how they measure up against each other.
If the mirror finger is the same length as the peacock finger or if it's up to 4mm shorter, then this indicates a very balanced person. If it’s more than 4mm shorter, it shows a lack of self-esteem and someone who needs to make an effort to take themselves more seriously.
A mirror finger that's longer than the peacock finger reveals someone who is independent, highly ambitious, very aware of their own worth and motivated by spirituality.
A peacock finger that's more than 4mm longer than the mirror finger is a sure sign of someone who has a deep, inbuilt need for recognition and to appear impressive to others.
