Palmistry

Palmistry is a well known field, but what is lesser known is that it is also known as Chiromancy, Chirology, hand analysis and palm-reading. Those who practice palmistry are called palm readers, palmists or chirologists. It is the interpretation of the characteristics like the shape and size of a person's hands, study of various lines, their formations and patterns, which appear on the fingers and palm that makes up palmistry. Numerous hands painted on the caves of prehistoric era clearly shows that the art of palmistry dates back to the ancient times. Further dermatologists have discovered that there is a link between heart disease and specific fingerprint patterns.

In palmistry color of the skin plays vital role in predicting the health of a person. Pink hands indicates good health, white hands means lack of blood circulation, red hands give an indication of high blood pressure whereas bluish tinged hands are indicative of lethargic circulation of blood, according to palmistry.

In palmistry usually the hand with which a person writes is considered to be the active hand in terms of his or her fortune, and is read according to that hand where as the passive hand generally reveals a person's childhood.

The practice of palmistry is regarded as pseudoscience and the basic study of this field comes from Greek mythology. Each part of the palm is associated with some God like Apollo, who is the Greek God associated with the ring finger. According to palmists the hand shape is divided in either four or ten types.

Some of the common classifications of Palmistry Hands are:

- Air hands, which are noted by rectangular or squared palms with long fingers. The length of the fingers is more than the length of the palm.

- Earth hands
are broad, squared palms and have thick ruddy colored skin. The length of the palms and fingers are normally equal.

- Water hands are short with oval shaped palms and conical fingers.

- Fire hands
have squared or rectangular pink skinned palms with short fingers.

The three most important lines in Palmistry are:

- The heart line, which is located on the top of the palm just below the fingers. Palmists associate this line with the matters of heart, which indicates emotional stability, depression etc.

- The head line
, which starts under the index finger and drives toward the outside edge. Palmists relate it with the person's temperament, learning style, creativity, etc.

- The life line
starts from above the thumb and goes towards the wrist. It is indicative of person's physical health, or reflects major life changes.
