Your Hand’s Shape

Your Hand’s Shape

The general shape of your hand tells a palm reader a lot about your general character. The easiest way to get a quick read on someone is to look at the shape his or her hands form — and to correlate each shape with a particular personality type. In palmistry, there are four basic shapes and one hybrid or mixed shape.

Each type of hand represents one of four elements that the ancients believed composed all matter of our world: Conical hands are said to be “air” hands; pointed hands are “water” hands; spatulate hands are “fire” hands; and square hands are “earth” hands.

The Conical or Artistic Hand

Conical hands are round, sensual, and feminine in appearance. People with these hand shapes typically have a deep appreciation for the arts or, if the hands feature lots of curved lines, are artists or creators themselves.

Quiet, sensitive, and imaginative, they are nonviolent people who seek solace through music, art, literature, and love. The conical hand is called the air hand, since this element most closely captures the free spirit of the type.

 

The Pointed or Psychic Hand

Long, delicate, and tapered fingers that characterize the pointed hand lead palmists to conclude that the fingers point to spiritual truths. This is why the pointed hand is always referred to as the psychic hand — and, in truth, the vast majority of those who have pointed hands do have psychic or intuitive ability.

If your hands are pointed and you don’t think you are the least bit psychic, it could mean that you have the power but have chosen not to develop it at this point in your life. Whether or not you become a psychic practitioner in the future, your intuition and creative energy are already powerful, and you tend to have a tremendous amount of compassion or empathy for others. Pointed hands are often called water hands because of their deep sensitivity and intensity.

The Spatulate or Action-Oriented Hand

If your hand is narrow at the wrists, but wider toward the fingertips, you have what is called the spatulate hand. You are action-oriented and love unusual adventures; it’s not unlike you to pack your bags and head to India for a spell, and then go on a skiing trip to Colorado the next month.

An explorer of people, places, and ideas, you are daring, energetic, and fearless, often challenging the ideas or positions of others who aren’t as open-minded as you. Your energy is boundless; you tend to leave others breathless, unable to catch up with you. Spatulate hands are often called fire hands, since that element most closely captures the personality traits of vitality and dynamism.

The Square or Practical Hand

A square hand appears to form a perfect square from the finger bases to the wrists. People with square hands are smooth, easygoing types who are very practical in nature and have a realistic outlook on life. They are rooted in their daily lives, and while they are friendly and outgoing, they also have a tendency to evaluate every situation as black or white, with very little left to interpretation. Still, because they are so sensible and level-headed, family and friends regularly seek them out to help mediate or settle volatile situations.

Square-handed people are most often drawn to careers that require hard work and persistence, since they excel in tackling large and difficult projects. Because they are practical and down-to-earth, these people are said to have “earth” hands. With the square-handed, what you see is what you get!

The Mixed Hand

Although it’s quite a rarity, every once in a while you’ll see a hand that has elements of two or more of the five shapes and types. Palmists call these hands mixed. For an accurate reading of a mixed hand, you’ll need to look for the dominant feature of the hand.

For instance, if you see that the palm itself is basically square but the fingers are long, it could mean that the person seems by outward appearance to be dreamy and intuitive, but that inwardly he is actually strong, practical, and even-minded. If all seems balanced in the hand, your mixed-hand person is completely versatile and has a steady, go-with-the-flow kind of attitude. Both temperaments have their positive and negative sides, but there is much to learn from the mixed-hand balanced individual.

Examining the Hand Spread

Examining the Hand Spread

 

The spread of the hand tells you how you are perceived by others. When you turn your hands around so that the palms face outward, look closely at the spread of your fingers. Very close fingers connote a person who is very traditional and overly sensitive; fingers held further apart represent an unconventional, nontraditional thinker.

And what about the other fingers and their positioning on the hand? If all of your fingers lean toward the palm, you are possessive, reserved, and possibly even stingy. If they point outward toward the sky, you can be overly permissive and give until it hurts. A wider-than-usual gap between the thumb and first finger also connotes extreme generosity.

Look at your fourth (little) finger as it relates to your hand. Is it farther apart than the other fingers? Usually, a little finger that points outward and is spaced significantly apart from the third finger means that you have a quick temper and are not to be reckoned with when upset! If your index finger seems to be spaced farther apart from the other fingers on your hand, you have strong leadership potential and can be a trendsetter.

 *Note – Hands that are very hairy on top can affirm masculinity in a man; a man whose hands are soft and free of hair often turn out to be meek and introverted. Women with more hair on their hands tend to be highly assertive and even aggressive at times, whereas women with smooth, hairless hands are of delicate constitution.

Overall Appearance of the Hand

Overall Appearance

 

Before taking a deeper look into the lines on the hand, you should always begin with an overall assessment of the hand itself. Hands come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes; to get a clear picture of the personality type you’re dealing with, it’s important to start with a good reading of the more general aspects of the hand’s outward appearance.

Here are the main aspects of the hand you’ll want to examine closely as you begin your palm reading:

  • Size. In general, people with small hands tend to act quickly and perhaps impulsively; those with very small hands are generally free, independent-minded thinkers. On the other hand, those with larger hands tend to be more methodical and thoughtful about their big decisions in life. People with average hands are easygoing — they react according to each situation and its own unique circumstances and are not as predictable.

 

You can learn a lot about a person just from a handshake. Sweaty palms indicate nervous tendencies; patches of blotchy skin signal circulatory problems. Some of these things are self-evident — in other words, you don’t need to be a psychic to know that someone with sweaty palms is a nervous type.

  • Color or consistency. Color represents life or vitality. If the palms are pale — white, gray, or even bluish — there are definitely health challenges (most likely circulatory in nature); red hands mean you are quick to anger; yellow, jaundiced hands mean you have a pessimistic outlook; and pink hands mean you are well-balanced and have a healthy outlook.
  • Thickness. Tilt the hand sideways and look at its width. Is it thin or thick? Thick hands belong to easygoing, noncompetitive people; thin hands belong to goal-oriented, driven, or ambitious people who are on a specific mission in life.
  • Texture. Fine, soft skin indicates refined tastes and usually belongs to the culturally or artistically inclined. Firm skin shows a healthy blend of physical and intellectual pursuits. Coarse, rough, or scaly skin indicates a more adventuresome, outdoorsy type for whom gloves (and personal well-being) are an afterthought.
  • Movement. How does the hand move? Does it seem flexible? If it is, the person is also likely to be flexible in his or her thinking and general demeanor. A general rule of palmistry is that the stiffer the hand, the stiffer the demeanor. Have you ever noticed a person with hands so stiff they almost seem mechanical? People with hands this stiff typically have mental or emotional difficulties, or have a hard time trusting others.

Take notes about each of these items. As you get deeper into the lines, ridges, and mounts of the hand, you’ll want to look back at your initial assessment to see how developed it’s become.

A Rewarding Inner Journey

A Rewarding Inner Journey

Although of course you may want to visit a professional palm reader, you can also do palm reading yourself, whether you read your own hands or the hands of others. Palm reading can be a richly rewarding experience along your path to in-depth personal understanding. Once you know what your personal challenges and opportunities are, you can better improve upon or capitalize on them to create a happier and more meaningful life. Reading the palms of others around you can greatly improve your communication. For instance, you can modify the way you communicate with an individual based on what you can guess about their personality, avoiding personality clashes before they become an issue.

 

If I do a reading for myself, how accurate would it be?

Once you’ve learned everything you can about palmistry, you can quickly and easily do a self-reading. However, an in-depth reading does require the ability to separate your wishes from the reality of your hand. One way of creating some distance is to use an inkpad or photocopier to create prints of your hand, then doing a reading from the copy.

Learning the ways of ancient and modern palmistry can open up a whole new way of seeing the world. It can help you achieve the true potential you were born with in this life while helping others to improve their lives by seeing themselves as they really are.

You don’t have to be a psychic medium to become a palmist — all you need is a wide-open mind and the willingness to be honest with yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to look at the challenges realistically rather than tell yourself or others only the things you or they would most like to hear. Remember, the future is all about potential and choice, so there’s nothing to be afraid of!

Now that you know you can effectively read your palms for yourself, why not set aside a quiet, meditative space for your first personal reading — or buddy up with a friend or family member to read each other’s palms? If you feel ready to try a reading of your own, you’re ready to move on.

Introducing Palm Reading

Introducing Palm Reading

Palmistry was first practiced in ancient China and India, where it appeared over 3,000 years ago. Like other forms of divination, it originally had other uses—ancient sages used palm reading to make character and personality assessments and to provide counseling. Some professional palm readers still use this method today.

Just about anyone can learn how to read palms—you don’t even need to have psychic ability or powerful intuitive skills. Once you learn the combinations of lines, sections of the hand, and other essential details, you can read any hand (including your own) and make a valid interpretation. And when you start getting good and have some experience, you might even come up with a few new theories of your own.

The most important thing to remember about palmistry is that, like other forms of divination, it’s meant to show you opportunities and possibilities available to you in your lifetime. It won’t tell you exactly the way things are supposed to go. In fact, all professional hand analyzers agree that the lines in your hand change according to life decisions you make along the way. Remember free will? We make our own destiny.

The Scrying Reading

 The Scrying Reading

Pick a place and a time in which you will not be disturbed for a while. Remove anything that is distracting or disturbing. You may want to cover the table with a cloth that is pleasing but not distracting. Use common sense about music, lighting and incense. Set the tool on the table. Cast a circle of protection around you and the table. If the scrying is for another person, they may or may not be there when the circle is cast. The circle can be conjured as a circle of protection and with the stipulation that certain people will be allowed in without breaking it, or the conjuration may be done mentally. If this is the case, the circle can be done while centering and grounding.

When all is ready, unwrap or uncover the scrying instrument and place your hands over it and say: “May the Gods be present here to aid me in this reading. So mote it be.” This may be said aloud or silently within.

Look at the tool as you did in the candle exercise. Allow yourself to drift into it. Allow the darkness to surround you, to blot out the “material world”. Allow yourself to see only inside the tool, deeper and deeper inside. Keep in mind the person wanting the reading whether it is yourself or someone else. When you have gone deep inside, allow a point to move toward you and to grow. Or maybe you see a cloudy area that begins to thin out. Allow it to turn into a picture, a scene, a feeling, a smell, or whatever presents itself. Allow it to flow. You may describe aloud what you are seeing or feeling, but you must be careful to realize that you are seeing impressions and symbols that may have many meanings. This is where the control within the surrender takes place. You must differentiate between imagination, personal remembrances, unknown visions of the past, visions of the known present, visions of the unknown present, and visions of the future events.

Watch the scene unfold and describe what you see. If there is another person present, have them take notes or use a tape recorder.

When the scene has exhausted itself or when you become too tired to continue, sit back and take a deep breath. Allow the present to return. When you are comfortable, open your eyes. Place your hands again on the scrying tool and either silently or aloud, thank the Gods for their help, and speed them well on their way. Cover or wrap the tool.

Take up the circle, either physically or mentally. Mare sure to have some refreshment available.

Practice Scrying Makes Perfect

Practice Scrying Makes Perfect

Like all forms of divination, constant usage will bring better results. It may be slow going, so the following practice may help.

You will need a candle, preferably white, in a candle holder, a table, chair and most of all, a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for a while.

Prepare the candle as above. Make sure that you are not disturbed by closing or licking the door, drawing the blinds, or whatever is necessary for your peace of mind. If quiet music is appropriate, put on a tape of CD, making sure that it will not finish before you do. You may want incense although if you dress the candle with a fragrant oil, the smoke from incense will not distract you.

Light the candle then extinguish all lights. Draw a circle or image of a circle of protection around you and the table. Sit in the chair facing the candle. Make sure that you are in a comfortable position. Center and ground. When you feel ready, look at the candle flame. Observe the various colorings and shading in the flame. Notice the shape of the flame, how the bottom is wide and round and tapers up. See the round indentation near the wick, and the wavering tip where the got gasses move up and out.

Now look at the center of the flame while allowing your vision to broaden to see the halo, the aura, the corona around the flame. You may at this time see and feel the clouding from the sides of your vision moving in and blocking out everything else you could see in the room. There will be just blackness with the candle in the center. There is no reason for fear. Be assured that in surrendering your self at this time, will not make you vulnerable. You have the power to stop the exercise at any time. When you feel absolutely comfortable, continue.

Watch the aura of the candle glow. Use your mind to move the aura from smaller to larger. Increase the size of the aura as you make the candle flame get taller. Change the brightness of the flame from bright to dim and back again. Notice the color of the flame and change it. Make it into a rose color and gradually turn it into a blue flame and finally into gold.

After you have played with the flame for a while, sit back, relax, close your eyes if you need to. When you are ready, get up, take up the circle, mentally or physically. Turn on the lights and walk around. You may find that you are hungry or thirsty now. Satisfy this urge. Psychic work take up quite a bit of energy.

This exercise may not be completely successful the first time you do it, but it can be done on a regular basis to increase your abilities.
