Palmistry is an ancient art of reading people’s destiny and determining their character, by analyzing their palms. This ancient discipline is widespread throughout the world. Its origins are in India, from where it spread to China and other Asian countries.
Today, palmistry is practiced all over the world. There are many palmistry schools, which have a different way of interpreting some signs and symbols on the palm, but the general rules of palm reading usually remain the same.
Also, every palm reader, adds a personal touch to their readings.
In Europe, palmistry was a forbidden discipline during the middle ages because it was considered a form of fortunetelling and witchcraft, and witches, as well as palmists who practiced palmistry were persecuted.
Its use began again in the late 19th century and since then it has been present in countries all across the world.
People who practice palmistry and do palm readings are called palmists or palm readers. They do the readings based on the knowledge gained from their palmistry teachers, but they also incorporate their own experience in their palmistry readings with their clients.
Palmistry readings consist of deciphering special details on people’s hands. Palmists pay special attention to the color of the hands, their shape, as well as the shape of the fingers.
They also analyze the markings on the hands and fingers, such as the existing lines, and other symbols. Some lines are present on most people’s hands, and some appear on the palms of some people.
There are also some symbols, which appear only in rare cases and they have a special meaning regarding the destiny and the character of the person who possesses them.
Palmists also pay attention to the state of the mounts of the hand and the overall condition of the skin on the palm.
One hand is more important than the other in palmistry reading, and that is the so-called, dominant hand. The dominant hand is the one the person uses the most, and it is usually the one, they write with.
With most people, that is the right hand, although the left can be the dominant as well.
Approximately 80% of information palmists gather from the dominant palm, while the other 20% comes from the non-dominant hand, which gives them additional details.
Palmists pay a lot of attention to the lines that appear on the person’s hand. They are the main source of information about the person’s character and destiny.
The main lines are the Life line, the Head line and the Heart line. Lines that often appear on the hand are the Fate line, Sun line, Mercury line, etc.
Sometimes these lines are absent from the person’s palm. Some lines are present in the person’s hand to indicate some events that will happen in their life and they also describe the nature of these events, in terms of whether they will be beneficial or not for the person. One of these lines is the Marriage line.
Marriage Line in Palm – Reading and Meaning
The Marriage line or lines are not always present on the person’s palm. The Marriage line, or as it is sometimes called, the affection or relationship line, refers to the circumstances regarding the person’s love life.
The line can give a lot of insight about the person’s attitude towards love matters, relationships, marriage, as well as the potential timing of their marriage.
The Marriage line is located under the little finger (the Pinky, or Mercury finger in palmistry), right below the base of that finger, and above the Heart line. Some people have one Marriage line, some have several, and some people don’t have a Marriage line.
If there are several lines below the base of Mercury finger, the longest one is the basis for the reading and the other ones give additional information about the person’s love life.
The line itself and its state can give a lot of insight about the person’s love life and their commitment to the relationship and their partner/spouse. Its shape and details as well as the symbols present on the line, can give the palmist the story about the person’s potential for relationship and marriage life.
It is important to note that the lines on our hands change as we evolve and gain experience.
New lines form on our hands throughout our lives and some lines can disappear. Some lines can also change, and that can happen to our Marriage line as well.
Our palms, reflects our inner state and that is why when we change something in our beliefs, behavior, or emotional response towards certain situations, that can reflect on our palm lines as well.
Because of that, it is important not to be upset if your Marriage line isn’t in a great state.
People change, and their experiences change. You might have disappointments in life that will make you aware of your true desires, and with that change, new and better experiences will begin happening, not just in your love life, but in all areas of your lives.
