The Lines of Palmistry

Before discussing the lines of palmistry, it is fair to state that this page provides an overall guideline about the principal lines on the hand, but it is by no means a complete resource. You will be able to read the dictates of your destiny to overcome your character defects, temper, and disposition that might otherwise greatly hamper your material progress and spiritual evolution.

The information provided on this page is sufficient to acquire the necessary knowledge of palmistry for a student or lover of numerology, but those interested in more comprehensive information can collect a free e-book before leaving this page that will teach you more about palmistry.

The most important question in lines on palmistry is which hand is to be read: right or left? Generally speaking, the more dominant hand should be read. If you are right-handed, the right hand is the proper hand to read. However, in some cases, you will find you have to read the lines of both hands. The following details the different types of lines of palmistry and their respective characteristics:
