“Palmistry carries with it, a stigma , placed upon it by fortune-tellers & the pseudo sciences of the middle ages. For 25 years, I have waged a battle against skeptics to prove, what I know, to be a fact – Palmistry is one of the most reliable methods for determining the genetic & the endocrinologic makeup of an individual. It is an easy and inexpensive method by which the Physician can help his patient to a healthy, happy and a full life.” By Eugene Scheiman, MD ( an American Doctor & author of ‘ A Doctors guide to better health through Palmistry’)
Palmistry has two important sections: a) Chirognamy b) Chiromancy
It is a study of physical characteristics of the palm , viz., a) Colour of the palm b) Flexibility of palm& fingers c) Length of fingers and the nature of its joints d) Colour of the nails & its shape ( conic, pointed, square, spatulate ) e) Shape of the palm f) The mounts ( the small bulge/pads, below each fingers) g) Length & Width of the Palm.
Each point, mentioned, above , carries with it , enormous information about a person’s Psyche.
For example, even without , looking at the Palm proper, by a simple shake of the hand, we can gather a) If his Palm feels too soft and flexible – you may say, he can quiet easily be maneuvered, his energy level is deficient b) If his Palm is firm , he should be an energetic person and probably a tough nut to crack, his head, placed well on his shoulders c) If his hand is too hard , he may lack, mental flexibility and with very strong likes and dislikes. You may need different tactics with each type of person, to get yourself, heard.
Narrow Palms reveal a restricted way of viewing Life, which is further aggravated by a stiff Palm. Conversely, broad Palms are generally found on people who are broad-minded, tolerant and interested in new concepts and trends. ( Check the angle between the Thumb and Index finger, the distance between the head and life line, and the quadrangle to confirm this ).
Generally speaking, short fingers especially with smooth joints are highly intuitive, impatient and impulsive. Check for balancing factors , such as a square finger tip and moderately joined head and Life line. These factors will put a break, to their otherwise, impulsive nature. Otherwise, trouble is in store.
Long fingers , with knotted joints have opposite qualities. Patience, love for details , are their trade mark. They are more suited for research oriented works.
If you have a designer, very patient, organized, talented in making small intricate designs/patterns , with precision, probably he has long fingers, square tips, with his/her head line with a slope towards Mount Luna, the mount of imagination and a single whorl on his Sun finger.
If you have a designer, who is highly talented, who just knows, which design is going to be a hit, but who works in fits and fancies, probably he/she has small smooth intuitive fingers.
Further, the transverse bend and the axial bend of the fingers also gives much insight in to the personality as well as health defects.
