Did you know you can analyse your relationship history and future simply by reading the lines on your palm? Humans have been using the lines and markings on their hands to create insight and predictions for centuries. Tune in to this ancient art.

How do you read your palm?

Firstly, flex your dominant hand a few times and then hold your palm facing you, with your fingers slightly bent. It’s best to do this in natural sunlight. Using a magnifying glass might work wonders in spotting the nuances and crevices of your hand’s landscape. You might also want to create paint imprint of your hand so you can examine it like a picture.

How do you analyse your love life using your palm?

Check out your relationship line(s)

Zoom in on the area directly underneath your little finger. You may see one or more horizontal lines or creases running from the side of your palm underneath your little finger. These are your relationship lines (sometimes called marriage lines) and represent the particularly close bonds you will have with others throughout your lifetime.

Most people have between one to five lines, and it’s interesting to check both hands. Your dominant hand will reflect the relationships which actually happen, whule your other hand indicates the potential for new ones. The state of each line’s end (the end is closer in towards your palm, rather than at the edge of your hand) is said to reflect the nature of the relationship.

For instance:

  • A deep, straight line reflects a long lasting and strong union. If the line is very long (ending beneath the ring or middle finger) it is said to represent your ‘soulmate’.

  • A line which dips downwards suggests a bullying or domineering partner.

  • A line which turns upwards suggests a partner who is rich or successful.

  • A fork at the end of the line predicts a relationship with a sudden ending.

  • A line which looks more like two parallel lines very close together suggests you may live separate lives.

Some say that if there are vertical lines branching directly from a relationship line, these represent the children from that bond, or significant things created together.

What about your heart line?

The long line at the top of the palm on your dominant hand is your heart line and is the go-to line telling you about romance, relationships, and your own emotions and feelings. It begins at the edge of your palm beneath your little finger and runs to just underneath your index or middle finger.

The depth of this line is important in revealing HOW you love others - those with deep heart lines tend to be more stoic and grounded in their dealings with others and favour long-lasting bonds, whereas shallow lines indicate a more sensitive or emotionally-driven type of personality and a person with a wider, but less stable, network. The direction, length, and nature of the line also reveals a great deal. For instance:

  • If the line runs straight or downwards (rather than towards the fingers), this indicates someone who may be extremely vulnerable to the opinion and approval of others.

  • A long, straight line that ends below the index finger shows someone who is a ‘people person’ and has a great instinct for reading others’ feelings. One that ends below the middle finger shows someone who knows what they want in life and perhaps lean towards a more self-sufficient way of living.

  • If the heart line extends all the way across the palm, this points to someone who is devoted and true, who prioritises their love life above all else.

  • A straight line shows someone who approaches relationships rationally and likes to do practical things for their partner. A line which curves upwards towards the fingers shows a person who is free and expressive about their feelings and loves bonding. A line which curves downwards shows someone who is more guarded and secretive about their feelings, preferring to be private.

  • Physically passionate people may have coarse, grainy heart lines.

  • Emotional traumas are sometimes revealed by lots of little lines crossing the heart line.

  • A person who leans towards starting relationships intensely but then tending to burn out might have a heart line with many breaks or branches. If the breaks look like chains, then this reveals conflicting feelings and temptations and maybe a tendency to get embroiled in love triangles (and other shapes…)

Don’t worry if you don’t agree, or like, what you see. Nothing is fixed. You can make adjustments or decisions that change your destiny and, in time, the lines on your hands will follow suit.
