First, it's important to read your dominant hand first. Most experts insist that your dominant hand is the one that you use to write and to complete most tasks, meaning that it represents your conscious mind, whereas your other hand is more demonstrative of your subconscious mind.

Type of Hand

There are many different aspects of examining and understanding the hands that go into the act of palm reading. First, you should start with the shape of your hand.

People with the air element can have either a square shaped or rectangle shaped palm, but have long fingers. However, the length of the palms and fingers are usually equal. Air types are known as the intellectuals, the ones who can’t help but do an analysis of the world. Their heads are known to buzz with multiple ideas at once. They are known to possess strong intellectual abilities, and can offer fresh and innovative interpretations and solutions. They are also strong communicators and charming in their own ways.

Water Type

People with the water element generally have short oval palms and long, slender fingers. They are known to be highly creative, imaginative and emotionally attuned individuals. This comes with its own pros and cons. They are natural healers, with compassionate, caring and giving hearts. They are generally good at relationships, and the flow of love comes naturally to them.

Earth Type

People who have the Earth element usually have a square palms and short fingers. Earth types are known to be realistic, dependable and practical. Long-term relationships can feel more natural to them. They are known to love being in nature, and are very sensual, aware of all their senses.

They are known to have a go-getter attitude. Fire types are natural leaders, and are known to be intensely passionate. They have a love for life. They may also have the tendency to be impatient, or not be so mindful of the effect of their actions on the feelings of other people.

Hand Lines

The way the lines appear on your palm can tell a lot about you. There are three major lines everyone has, and a fourth that may or may not be visible.

Life Line

This line is the bottom line of your palm, and likely curls along your thumb. Although the name suggests something about life, that’s not really what this line shows. Rather, it is believed to provide information about how healthy and resilient you are. If the line has a broad curve, you aren’t particularly susceptible to disease. Is the line is thin and short? Then you have a tendency to get sick and you’re easily manipulated by others. If your life line is broken or creased, that represents a sudden change in your life.

Head Line

This line is the line in the middle of your palm. If your head line is clear and straight, you are intelligent, realistic, and have a special talent. And if this line is long and deep, your thinking is clear and you are a focused person. The deeper the head line, the better your memory. If this line is connected to your life line, you are a balanced person, however if the two lines are separated from each other, you’re a stubborn and willing to take big risks.

Heart Line

This is the top line on your hand. This line reveals much about your emotional life. If your heart line touches your life line, you have a tendency to have your heart broken. If this line is straight and wide, you have a good relationship with your partner and your love is strong. The redder and deeper your heart line, the more passionate you are. If your heart line is short, you aren’t romantically inclined, and if it is broken, you have experienced trauma. In addition, if your heart line is similar to your partner’s, you are a good match.
