The major lines in palmistry

In classic palmistry there are 4 major lines, traditionally known as the ‘heart line’, the ‘head line’, the ‘life line’, and the ‘fate line’.

  • The HEART line (BLUE line in picture above):
    In classic palmistry this line is often called the ’emotional’ line.
  • The HEAD line (GREEN line in picture above):
    In classic palmistry this line is often called the line of ‘mentality’.
  • The LIFE line (YELLOW line in picture above):
    In classic palmistry this line is often called the line of ‘vitality’.
  • The FATE line (ORANGE line in picture above):
    In classic palmistry this is often called the ‘destiny’ line or ‘career’ line.
  • Palmistry - the length of the life line

    Palmistry - the length of the life line

    “Mr. Palmist, what’s the meaning of the length of the ‘life line’?”

    The life line is one of the most well-known features of Palmistry. Most people are able to find the life line in their own hands.

    Some guidelines from the international Palmistry literature about the ‘life line’ (or ‘line of life’):

    William G. Benham writes in ‘The Benham Book of Palmistry’ (1900):

    (p. 467): “The line of Life indicates the health of the subject during the various periods of life, his physical strength in general, and whether he lives during each period on his nervous force or relies upon muscular robustness. By reason of these facts, it records many detailed events in his life, and forms a basis to fall back upon when seeking confirmations and explanations of indications found elsewhere in the hand.”

    Edward D. Campbell writes in ‘The Encyclopedia of Palmistry’ (1996):

    (p.133): “To the Indian palmists, this line reflects the strength of the family tree. Long, clear, and well-marked life lines are indicative of strength, vitality, good immune systems, good recovery ability, resilience, and sexual energy, especially if they describe a generous curve around a healthy mount of Venus.”

    Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D. writes in ‘Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy’ (2004):

    (p.116): “The tenar line: ego drive discipline. This line is identified almost universally as the line of life. And while tradition and folklore have their place in any culture this very unfortunate labeling has contributed to countless tragedies over the years. Books have been published in which the assertion was made that the length of this line is an indicator of the length of the person’s life, and many a death can be attributed to a palmist’s stated certainty that the subject would not life beyond a given year. It is imperative, then, to establish at the start that there is no link whatsoever between this line and the length of one’s life.”
