Origin of Palmistry

The palmistry has its roots in Indian, Chinese astrology as well as Roma fortune-telling. From the ancient remaining record of the frescoes in ruins of India and words passed down from Brahmanism, we can find palmistry was very popular in India at that time. In China, palmistry also has a long history. Since the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BC) which is about three thousand years ago, it has prevailed. The first comparatively complete and systematic palmistry work in China appeared in the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC – 9 AD) which was written by Xu-Fu. In this article, we introduce how the Chinese people read palms in general.


Before reading your palm, you should choose the right hand to read. There are different schools of thought on this matter. Some people think the right for females and left for males. As a matter of fact, both of your hands play great importance in hand reading. But one is dominant and the other is passive. The left hand usually represents what you were born with physically and materially and the right hand represents what you become after grown-up. So, the right hand is dominant in palm reading and the left for a supplement. 


How to read your palm? It starts from the reading of palm lines. In palmistry, there are mainly three major lines to read which are Life Line, Head Line (also Wisdom Line) and Heart Line (also Love Line).


Mounts, which are bumps of flesh on your palm play a very important role in palm reading.

According to the Chinese palmistry, there are seven mounts for a person with each named after a planet and stands for different characters. Also, the features of the planets are revealed in the corresponding mounts.

Finger Palmistry:

Fingers’ length and shapes have close relationship with a person’s character in palm reading. From them, you could find out what kind of person in personality you are. Fingerprints are also very important to help you understand yourself better.

Fingernail Reading: 

Fingernails are the essential parts of the human body. In terms of palm reading, a person’s fingernails can tell his character, luck and health. The pink, glossy and smooth fingernails that are unlikely to be broken and have moderate thickness and hardness, with the lunula (being found in the five fingernails is the best) accounting for one-fifth of the fingernail length, are the signs of good health.

Kind Notice:

The palm lines are usually not fixed. It changes as you get older or you experience more and more. Whether you could have a good future, a happy marriage, a good job, a perfect health condition… is not solely decided by the palm line. It mostly needs your own effort and wisdom. Keep a positive outlook on life, learn more about how to relate to other people well, and develop a good personality are what you should pay much attention to.
