"It's impossible to read the hands of those to whom we are very close," I am advised by another gifted and prescient palm reader. Nevertheless, I test the waters and will now share what I have observed in the hands of a close friend of mine.
The aspects of character illustrated by my friend's hands have been borne out by my observations during our relationship over a period of a decade. In this instance, my personal acquaintance rendered greater clarity for me in understanding the complex relationships between shapes and palmar lines that I periodically investigated in her hands.
My friend has hands of fire, the impulsive hand with short fingers and a wide and short palm. Fire corresponds to the sun and provides heat and light. In the body the energy of heat and fire generates action. The Fire hand has rectangular palms and short fingers. Fire hand people are quick to act and may be impulsive. They are warm and caring, but need a lot of reassurance. Fire hand people may fall in and out of love but generally make committed partners. Intense energy seeks expression through the Fire hand.
Compounding the complexity of this impulsive nature are two thumbs which have a wide and very pronounced first phalange which is considerably larger than the second phalange. The first phalange is "will" and "ego." The second phalange is "logic" and "reason." When the first phalange is broader and larger than the second phalange, a tendency to "leap before looking" is very evident. It's also a sign of somebody who may always be in motion. A larger second phalange indicates somebody slower by nature in making decisions, somebody who may be reasonable to excess and hesitant to make a move.
Motion and forward movement can be a blessing, of course. But without a properly considered course of action, sometimes a retrenchment is necessary after a forward motion. Sometimes, movement itself, any movement, can be a healthy thing to jog oneself out of a mental or emotional rut. A danger with continuous motion can be that we never slow down long enough, or even stop once in a while, to check out the scenery as we progress on our journey through life.
How do my friend's palmar lines factor into this intense activity of kinetic nature and volitional forward movement? She has a second line that curves parallel to the Life line, double the life force, or the vitality of two people. This second line is not the Saturn line which runs straight up the palm to the middle finger. With this double energy my friend can achieve in one day what will take a month for a person of average vitality.
Her Head line is pronounced and runs across the palm with a slight curve down to the mount of Luna, indicating a definite gift for intuition. The Mount of Venus is well-rounded showing, not surprisingly, great enthusiasm and passion for life and love. The Heart line is deeply etched but chained with little curves going up and down from the line, a sign of both tears and laughter.
In reading the hand, one always should look for counter tendencies so that some balance, a way to the serenity of moderation, can be found. With the present instance the intuition shown by a pronounced Mount of Luna is a positive counterbalance. But, of course, one must slow down long enough to achieve a quiet stillness and listen to the intuitive self within. The short and active fingers of the Fire Hand must cease manipulating the world long enough to enclose the palm with silence so that the wisdom of the heart can speak.
