Palmistry is no simple practice. I mean, check the lines on your palm, there are a TON and they all mean something different!

Life Line

The life line starts between your thumb and index finger and curves down toward your wrist (it’s white in the diagram above). This line signifies the state of your emotional and physical well-being.

The deeper this line is, the easier your life is destined to be. But don’t fret, struggle is a key part of the process.

If your life line is long, you are super down to earth. Your friends count on you to anchor discussions and solve disputes — and you love every minute!

If your life line is short, you are a busy bee! You’re destined to run the world someday, and your schedule shows it — from work to cocktail hour, there’s never a free moment!

If your life line is faint, you often let anxiety get in the way of your self-esteem and happiness. STOP that, right now! Anxiety ain’t got nothin’ on you, girl!

If your life line is broken, you’re no stranger to trauma. Your early years play a huge role in the person you are today — though it’s been difficult, you wouldn’t change a thing.

Heart Line

The heart line often runs parallel to the head line. In the diagram above, it’s the top yellow line that runs from pinky to index finger. Your heart line forecasts matters of the, um… heart. Basically, it evaluates the emotional state of your relationships with others.

If your heart line is short, you often struggle to make meaningful connections with others. Though you may not realize it, you tend to focus on yourself, which totally puts people off. Step out of the spotlight for a second and ask your friend about her day.

If your heart line is long, you are very friendly and outgoing, but this behavior isn’t always healthy. You expect a lot from your loved ones, and they don’t always deliver. Keep your expectations realistic — no one’s perfect!

If your heart line is faint, you might be more of a loner. You appreciate your quiet time, and you really don’t mind spending a Friday night (or two, or three…) alone.

If your heart line is broken, you tend to stress out in social situations. Don’t forget to breathe, girl!

Head Line

Your head line focuses on your intellectual and psychological development. It falls between the heart and life line, running diagonally across your palm with one end at the crook of your index finger and thumb.

If your head line is short, you are an incredibly logical thinker. You don’t have much time or energy for speculation — you tend to cut straight to the point.

If your head line is long, you think before you speak, ALWAYS. You’re one to weigh options. Among your pals, you’re the queen of the pro-con list.

If your head line is faint, you are a dreamer in the truest sense. You’re incredibly creative and your mind is always taking you away on a new adventure — just don’t forget about the adventure you’re living: REAL LIFE.

If your head line is broken, you tend to overthink (like, A LOT). Try to turn your brain off every once in a while. There’s a lot of value in taking a mental vacay.
