WHAT IS PALMISTRY?

Palmistry, is the mystical art of reading peoples palms to determine their fortunes and luck. The phrase Chirology comes from the Greek words kheirmanteia translated as “hand divination”, and that is exactly what palmistry is. Different systems of palmistry can be found in many cultures all over the world including European and Asian. The most prominent include the palmistry methods and practices found in Romani Culture, in Hindu/Vedic Astrology, as well as Chinese spiritual practices.

Palmistry has always been considered a sacred and respected science, and even great historical leaders like Alexander the Great would choose their officers for commanding troops in battle based on those candidate’s palm readings. Unfortunately, the Catholic Church and many Protestant Christian groups have generally viewed reading palms as a forbidden art and as a heretical and superstitious practice. Orthodox Islam also considers palmistry as haram or forbidden by religious law and custom. Many modern scientists discredit palmistry and think its superstitious nonsense.

The mind plays a pivotal role in shaping our destiny, and the head line shines light on our intellectual curiosities and pursuits. Located in the center of the palm, it also reveals the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime. The complexity of an individual's mental pursuits corresponds with the line's depth, while the line's length reveals the breadth of the topics they explore. A wavy line signifies progressive thinking, while a straight line reveals more a traditional approach.
