Palm Reading, also known as palmistry or chiromancy, is one of the most highly regarded, albeit difficult to grasp (pun definitely intended). Simply put, palmistry is the art of analyzing the physical features of the hands to interpret personality characteristics and predict future happenings.
There are four basic hand shapes within palmistry, each connected with a different element — fire, water, earth, and air — and its associated traits. Although the four elements are also embedded in astrology, your hand type may not correspond with your astrological profile.
Earth hands are identified by square palms and short fingers. These hands are often firm, solid, and fleshy. Individuals with earth hands are known to be practical, logical, and grounded. While secure and reliable, they can become too consumed with their immediate realities, which can ultimately hinder long-term planning and achievement.
You can tell a fire hand by its long palm and short fingers. These hands often have distinctive creases and defined mounds (read on for more about those). Individuals with fire hands are known to be passionate, confident, and industrious. They’re driven by their desires and on a bad day they may lack tactfulness and empathy.
Air hands have square palms and long fingers and are often boney, with protruding knuckles and spindly fingers. This hand type signifies intellectually curious individuals with innate analytical abilities and communication skills. Those with air hands are easily distracted and, if not stimulated, can become anxious or edgy.
Water hands are distinguished by their long palms and long fingers. These hands are often soft to the touch and a bit clammy, with an overall narrow appearance. Those who have them are in tune with their emotions, intuition, and psychic ability. Fueled by compassion and imagination, these individuals are often creatives. They’re also extremely sensitive and their feelings are easily hurt, causing undesirable interpersonal stress.
The folds and creases of the palms — referred to as lines — are used to form narratives and predict future happenings. The meanings of lines are determined by analyzing their length, depth, and curvature. No two palms are unique, so remember that context is everything: Note where each line begins and ends, which mounts it crosses, and where the creases intersect.
