What is Palm Reading?
Palm reading is the art of studying the unique patterns of ridges in your hand to find answers you seek about love, life, and work. Also known as Palmistry and Chiromancy, it has been practiced worldwide for centuries.
Your hands, fingers, feet, and toes have ridges that were formed long before you were born. These are the result of stress patterns during your development in the womb. Everyone grows differently in their mother’s belly, as a result, these patterns are unique just like your personality.
How to do Palmistry
When you first arrive at Astrology and Crystals, one of the first questions we hear from new clients is “Which hand do you read?” Usually, we read both hands to get a better reading and a full picture of your life. The active or dominant hand offers better reading but both are truly needed to get a good feel of who you are and what you seek. The passive hand holds your inherited traits and potential. The difference between your dominant and passive hands shows the changes in your traits. It offers greater insight into your path.
Humans have different hand types, not only can they be large, medium, or small hand sizes, there are four major hand type groups your hand will fall into. This group will help the reader determine the lines meaning and strength.

The Lines of the Palm
The lines of your palm are characterized into three categories, Major Lines, Secondary Lines, and Minor Lines. If you have many fine lines in addition to the Major Lines, it is said you are very complex and sensitive. The fewer fine lines, the more straightforward and blunt the personality.
Major Lines are the three lines that are larger than the others. These are the Heart Line, Head Line, and LifeLine. Your Heart Line holds the key to your love life, relationships, and emotions. One which travels across the entire hand shows a person with a very controlled emotional state.
The Head Line indicates your intelligence, determination, and even your risk-taking. Where the intersection occurs shows how fearless or cautious you are, the closer to the left the more cautious.
Your Life Line shows how generous or selfless a person is. The closer the line is to the thumb, the less generous with their energy and time they are.
