The palmistry diagram of hand includes four components. The first component is the fingers, which reveal many secrets about you and others. If someone does not like to open his palm in front of you, you can judge his character by simply observing his fingers. The second component is the nails.

Many clinical analysis can be done based on the color and formation of nails. The Greek physicians Hippocrates and Galen used this technique as a clinical tool at a time when medical instruments had yet to be invented. On the page Learn Palmistry, you can find details about the fingers and nails.

The third and most important component is the lines on your palm. The whole story of your life is written on your hands. While you go through the page explaining the lines of your hand, you will find it very interesting and will likely be astonished to see how the lines prove to be a true indicator of your life.

Finally, on this page I shall describe the fourth component: the mounts on your hands. The meaty areas (i.e., mounts) found on the edge of your palm are named after the planets. You can identify the location of each mount on your hand using the following diagram:
