Palmistry is not just the study of lines but the combined study of lines and other features that are always there i.e. fingers, palm, skin colour, size of the hand etc. Those who jump directly to lines end up with nothing most of the times. Like every other science there is a systematic approach to making judgements while analysing the other person’s hand.
The basic rules of palmistry include don’t make judgments based on only one sign or symptom for example if the line of fate is not strong in a square hand it doesn’t mean that the person would notbe able to achieve anything in his life or if the head line and the life line are attached then it doesn’t necessarily mean that the person is not good at decision making. Always focus on at least two to three factors that confirm your statement.
Those who rely solely upon lines face a major problem when there is a hand put in forth of them with almost no lines other than life line, head line and the heart line. This is a situation where such interpreter feels challenged, however if proper process is followed there could be found several things out of an empty hand.
The lines may be missing butthere will be no hand with palm, fingers, nails, skin and thumb. Most of the judgements or prediction is the better word is made by considering those portions only. Lines are just looked at to confirm the situation. It is not that lines are unimportant as they have important role to play in deciding the time period and several other important factors of life.
If the following process of hand analysis is followed, majority of the predictions have been found to be accurate. It is very similar to the BODMAS rule of mathematics as to what to solve first and what later nevertheless the fact that everything has its own importance.
• Shape of the hand
• Size of the hand
• Shape of the fingers
• Size of the fingers
• Size of the palm
• Backside of the hand
