Palmistry approaches the subject of studying human nature, characteristics and forecasting future in a different but more direct manner. It is the science of determining the character and mental tendencies and the likely events to happen in ones life by examining lines and marks in the palm.
We will begin by examining both hands. With the right handed subject the left hand is considered the birth hand which shows inherited predisposition of character, while the right hand is thought to reflect individuality, sensibility and potential. For the left handed subject it’s the vice versa.
Palmistry is specially useful for people who do not have their birth details and are unable to have their horoscope made. Thus the systematic study of an individual’s hand can help him know his future in a similar way as his horoscope.
Palmistry can trace its roots back to India in ( Hindu ) Astrology (known in Sanskrit as Jyotish ), Chinese Yijing (I Ching), and Roma (gypsy) fortune tellers .The Hindu sage Valmiki is thought to have written a book, whose title translates in English as “The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry”, comprising 567 stanzas. From India, the art of palmistry spread to China , Tibet , Egypt , Persia and to other countries in Europe From China, palmistry progressed to Greece where Anaxagoras practiced it. However, modern palmists often combine traditional predictive techniques with psychology , holistic healing , and alternative methods of divination also.
