What does palmistry tell us?
Palmistry is the practice of analyzing one’s character and future life by reading the lines in his/her palm. People often tend to look forward with hope to the future, but still they may find it hard in managing their lives and need some signs supporting them. But first of all they should know themselves. That’s where hand lines come into play. No doubt that a person who knows his/her strengths and weaknesses will be more conscious when arranging his/her life.
Technique of Palmistry
Palmistry is particularly a branch practiced by Gypsies and oculists. In some traditions, the fingernails, fingerprints, skin texture, color of the hand, shape of the palm or even the flexibility of the hand may be the subject of fortunetelling.
