Ten Frequently Asked Questions about Hand Reading (PALMISTRY FAQS)

Here are some FAQs on Palmistry or Hand reading. And the answers to them. 

1) Is palmistry a legitimate, proven science or an art of intuition? Even worse, is it merely unreliable speculation? 

There is a vast ancient knowledge about hand reading and this knowledge has been built upon by many good modern authors on palmistry. When it comes to actually using this knowledge, some palmists and hand readers use intuition, astrology, psychology and superstition, and combine it with tidbits of ancient palmistry knowledge to draw conclusions. This tends to discredit palmistry.

Even if intuition is accurate at times, to rely on it or to act as if it is about hand reading is not correct. From the number of emails I get every week from people who have been victims of palmists who make dire, frightening predictions,

Chester Bennington - Suicide and Hand Reading


Chester Bennington, a famous musician, committed suicide at 41, leaving fans shocked. Was there any indication on Chester Bennington’s hand which gave a clue as to why he did it?

Famous palmists like Cheiro have written about suicidal hands and such hands were mostly of people incapable of living a normal life due to their precarious mental state, unable to function in real life. It was rare for successful and famous people to kill themselves at the time.

Today it is more common. It may flummox ordinary people as to why a successful and famous person would want to die, but the pressures they face are high, and if their self-esteem is tied to continued success, it can lead to depression. Today, in modern times, success is transient, competition ruthless, the public fickle, and drugs and alcohol freely available and used without social stigma, particularly by the rich and famous. Whether related to this or not, the suicide rate amongst famous and successful people is rising, and some of these celebs have been known to suffer from depression and addiction issues.

It is known that Chester Bennington suffered from depression off and on from a young age, and also battled issues with addiction. Is this visible on his hand?

Chester Bennington has a broad palm, a long low-set thumb, and a very highly developed Lower Mars and Jupiter mounts as well as bent fingers.

Check out a photo of his hand here or here. (as he was left-handed, a link to his left hand photographs is provided)

The bent Saturn and Jupiter fingers are similar to that of Kurt Cobain (who also is believed to have committed suicide) although Cobain’s Saturn finger appears to be more severely bent. A significantly bent middle finger does point to a critical, negative attitude, and in Bennington’s hand is exacerbated by the developed third phalange of Saturn, and Moon mount, and poorly developed Upper Mars. These signs can indicate feelings of solitariness and moodiness and lead to feelings of discouragement. These characteristics do not necessarily point to a depressive personality, because finally it depends on the mind. In Bennington’s case the Headline is not clearly visible in photographs on the internet but if one has to guess from one blurred photo, he could cope with reality.

Was his suicide an impulsive act then? There are indications that the suicide was not planned. His hand shows impulsiveness.

If one has to sum up one can say that Bennington’s hands show him to be a moody, lonely person, and a very compassionate one as well. However, his hands also show him to be an extremely aggressive, pushy, controlling and ambitious go-getter. Almost like he was two different people.

People kill themselves when they feel they have no hope, and my theory after studying his hand is that he killed himself because his temperament was at odds with itself, unable to handle the ups and downs that success brings with it in the modern world. And he wanted success like no other.

Virat Kohli's personality reading

Virat Kohli’s hand with its broad square palm and the well developed Venus, shortish fingers, strong Upper Moon, good thumb, and strong main lines, shows a healthy, energetic, creative, talented and hard working individual, loving, warm and generous. These are the personality characteristics which leap out at you with a casual glance at the palm. 

The fact that his hand has few lines, and they are strong, unbroken and without defects, shows the focus, self-control, and clarity in thinking, and this adds to the determination shown by the thumb. It’s not just that he just good at what he does, he is a good human being, the kind of person who endears himself to others.

Check out a photo of his hands here, and here.

It is said that he aggressive and ambitious, but oddly enough these characteristics are shown as subdued in this hand. They are present, but in moderation and in a healthy proportion, and are not what define him. This means that Virat Kohli the human being is not the aggressive, ambitious ‘A’ type personality that he may appear to be. It is a positive indication in my opinion, as he would not rub people the wrong way due to a bombastic approach.

His hand shows humility, a good characteristic for a leader to possess. What is not so good is that his Jupiter finger is a little weak, but taking into account his other characteristics, it does not make him a weak leader, certainly not in the context of his profession. It just means he is a sensitive, humble person, without ego, and willing to accept his mistakes. Along with his talent and determination it does show that he will want to grow and improve himself.

If he were not talented, then these personality characteristics become a hindrance. But cricket captains are where they are because of their sheer talent and thus they do not need a forceful or aggressive approach to demand respect. They automatically command it.

The vulnerability shown by the Jupiter finger and the average or below average Upper Mars, can be countered by outside support in some manner. Whether it is in the form of a person or guru, or an idea. This will increase his self-belief.

Kohli’s hand also shows a kind of flair in the personality, a kind of dramatic style, and this will conceal the insecurity.

(Virat Kohli is an Indian international cricketer who currently captains the India national team).

Yogi Adityanath's hand reading

The main features of Yogi Adityanath’s* hands are his squarish palms, fairly straight, shortish and rounded fingers with thick third phalanges, well-developed mounts especially that of Venus, Mars and Moon, and a few dark, well-etched lines, including a ram-rod straight Fateline, but one which does not start from the base of the hand. The Heartline is a little more pronounced as compared to his other main lines, the thumb phalanges are slightly thick and the Headline and Lifeline are joined considerably.

What is clear from his hand is that he is a

The hand reading of Mike Pence


Mike Pence, the Vice President of the U.S., has a fairly good hand. It's large, broad, with clear, balanced lines. However, he is well-known to have some deeply conservative and controversial views on certain sections of society, and is also known to be quite religious. That was why I was a little surprised to see that his hand did not reveal religious idealism nor narrow views. Not in an extreme way. So what's the real story? Read on…

Mike Pence’s palm and fingers are fairly well balanced with each other, and the fingers are knotty with good first phalanges, slightly short second phalanges, distinctly waisted and supple thumb, a good mercury (little) finger, low-set Jupiter finger, and most important (for a politician) a well developed Venus mount. Lower Mars is developed too, but the plain of Mars, Upper Mars, and the Lunar mount are not as well developed.

What all this shows is that while he is likely to have a staunch belief system,

Actor Rekha's hand reading

Rekha’s hands are on the longer side, with long fingers, square palm, long straightish lines and mounts are not excessively developed. Second phalanges are long except that of the thumb (which has a conic tip), finger knots are present (both the first and second), and the index and little fingers (Jupiter and Mercury) appear to be slightly bent. Both these digits have conic tips; the Jupiter finger is slightly short (on her right active hand) and the Mercury finger is low-set. Her head and lifelines are joint for about an inch or so.

Primarily, Rekha is a thinker (she has the 'thinking type' of hand), and reason and objectivity are both an important aspect of her personality. However, her heart

Tayyip Erdoğan's hand reading

Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey, is one of the most popular leaders Turkey has had. What does his hand reveal?

Some prominent features of his hand are his conic tipped fingers, large fleshy palm, strong mounts of Mars, Jupiter and Moon, a bent and slightly short Jupiter finger, strong Apollo finger with a well-developed third phalange, longish palm and shortish fingers, with a long, slightly sloping Headline and a low set Heartline.

From the hand it is clear that idealism is strongly present in Tayyip Erdogan’s personality, and it can make him inflexible at times. There is also an element of superstitious behavior. These are

What Boris Johnson's hand says about him

Boris Johnson, one of the key campaigners for Brexit (the Leave EU Campaign) is a potential prime-ministerial candidate for Britain. However, his hand does not show him to be prime ministerial material.

Kangana Ranaut - who is she really?

Kangana Ranaut* is apparently stubborn, with "high self-esteem, super sensitive, and bold" – words she has used to describe herself. She has also called herself difficult, tough, and someone who has always done what she wanted.

Looking at her delicate features and elf like appearance, one cannot help but wonder whether this is a façade? Bravado? Is Kangana really the badass that she calls herself, from the inside?

The hand never lies, and studying it can give us some answers.

Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton?

Who is the better candidate – Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?*

Hillary Clinton is the practical, dependable sort, and the more aggressive, stronger personality. Bernie Sanders is more of an intuitive, ideating kind and certainly more of an intellectual. However, his headline shows pragmatism and common sense; he is level-headed and sensible, with stable, clear thinking, although he can be a little moody.

Clinton has a broad palm with short fingers, and Sanders has a longish palm, with short fingers. Both of them have long fine lines on their hands, with square tips to their middle and ring fingers, and conic tips to their Mercury (little) fingers. Both have good thumbs, though Sanders possibly has the better one, showing greater

Love, Marriage and Relationships - what the hand reveals

Questions on the burning topic of love, relationships and marriage are eternal. I receive requests to answer these questions almost daily. This post is to clear doubts that interested readers have on the subject.

Some questions are edited for clarity. Answers are at the bottom of the post.


The Questions:

I am a 24 yr kayasth girl and in a relationship with a punjabi khatri boy for the last 4 yrs.... My family is financially very weak they are not capable to do my marriage but my family is very well educated and in opposition of a love marriage. plz mam tell me is my marriage possible with this guy.... We can't live without each other.

My lover had our palms read by a palmist and when she read my partner's hand she said that he would marry early. When she read my hand, she said my marriage will be very late and I would marry at about 29-30yrs of age. This has me worried because this would mean that me and my partner will be marrying different people. What is your opinion?

Can you help me to read my marriage lines? I have 3 lines, and the middle line is going to the heart line and I also have a lot separate lines rising from this third line. I am a little bit confused.

Can u pls tell me if a boy has two marriage lines on his right hand and one marriage line on his left hand, does it mean he will get married twice?

I want to show my hand to you...the major issue is of my 2 marriage lines on my both hands, 2 on each. Please provide me ur view on this.

Ma'am I am really confused about the marriage line. Please help me out. I got married to a guy at a very early age. Now we are separated. Will we get together again in future ?

What will my married life be like? The love line doesn't touch the fate line and it runs parallelly (horozontally) under the little finger but it is very short. Does that mean I will not have a love marriage? Also, please can you tell me whether I will get married soon.

I heard from one astrologer that there is possibility of divorce in my kundli.
I want to check that if my palm lines tell same. I am unmarried girl currently and want to plan accordingly.

I am already married and in an unhappy marriage. I want to divorce and marry again and want to know if I have a chance of that. I want to know if two marriages are shown on my hand. I have two marriage lines.

When I was 15 years old, a palmist had read my palm and told me that I would have a divorce at age 40. Can you look at my hand and tell me if this is true?

Does the light line beneath the marriage line always signify a relationship or can it also indicate a one sided love?
