As the saying goes “if you want to know a person’s character, look at his hands”. Since ancient times, palmistry has been practised as a form of divination. The art of palmistry has been practiced for 5000 years, according to writings from ancient China, India and the West. Palmistry is the study of palm lines and signs of the hand. Palmistry can describe the strength and weakness of your character, the lines and markings on the palm indicate the general personality of the person. However, the information should be collected as a whole to give you a more precise divination. Palmistry describes both your past and future, because all the major events that affect you will be shown in your hands. Besides being a fascinating study, palmistry can help in vocational guidance, health and psychological diagnosis and partnership compatibility.

The hand is as unique as its owner, and the right and left hand of the same person are never alike and are read differently. Today, medical science has proven that the brain and hands are closely connected since most of our meridians run through our palms. In this way, the analysis of character ad psyche through hand lines is considered logical.

According to David Bourne, there are four types of elemental hand; water, air, fire and earth. Assessing this aspect gives an overview of a person’s character based on astrological principles. The elemental hand often corresponds with the individual’s astrological sign.

The Water hand has a delicate structure with long fingers and long palms. They normally belong, though not always, to people born under one of the water signs, Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio. People with such hands are normally artistic, sensitive, sometimes enigmatic and very intuitive.
