Palmistry or chiromancy, palm reading is practiced all over the world with roots in Indian astrology fortune-telling. The objective of this research is to evaluate a person’s character and aspects of their life by studying their thumb. Palmistry is popular since ancient age. There are examples of stone-age showing human interest in palmistry. It is believed that Kings used thumb prints to seal documents. In our Vedas also there is information available on palm analysis. This field is not yet technically rich. Human palms have some common characteristics in the form of mountains known as planets. The finger’s length corresponding to the planet represents the strength of that planet for that person. Every planet has its own predefined qualities and when a person is ruled by the planet, he inherits the qualities of the planet. Apart from planets, person’s palm width-length, palm-length ratio and finger-length, type of thumb, angle of the thumb also talks about person’s qualities and his nature. So, with the help of palmistry one can know somebody’s personality type, his characteristics, hidden skills, fortune and about the profession suits best to him. Till now the palmistry is a practical knowledge and we have no systemized approach to read hands.
There are two main practices:
For males, the left hand is what you’re born with, and the right is what you’ve accumulated throughout your life. For females, it’s the opposite.
Your dominant hand (The hand you use most often) determines your future and your other, non-dominant hand, is used to determine the past or hidden traits take these into consideration when choosing which hand to read.
