The hand reading of Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone has apparently inherited her father's genes (I said apparently because I have not seen her father's hands) because both of her hands show physical capacity and sporting ability. This can be seen from the shape of her palms/hands as well as from the fingers and their phalanges. When it comes to her temperament, it is a passionate and serious one.

The most prominent mounts on Deepika’s hands are that of Jupiter, Venus and Moon. The main lines of Head, Heart, Life and also Fate, are all long and well etched and plus, she has a long thumb, and these are clear signs of a focused and determined personality. Her hand is slightly

Mike Tyson's hand reading

In the case of Mike Tyson, and indeed in the case of many famous people, the passive and active hands differ significantly, and this reveals that the early circumstances faced by these people were not exactly smooth. There were challenges, battles to be won, and mental upheavals.

While Tyson's hand shape and strength of the various Mounts is approximately the same on both hands, there are important differences in the lengths of the Apollo (ring) and Jupiter (index) fingers and also the shape of the Heart and Head lines.

All the Mars mounts are well developed, on both the hands, and this in combination with the shape of his hand reveals Tyson to be contentious, competitive, and

Why Robert Mugabe is who he is

Robert Mugabe, the current President of Zimbabwe, is known to be a dictator wanting to hang on to power at all costs, a person who has brought Zimbabwe to economic ruin. What is the reason behind his seemingly irrational behavior? His hand explains it all too clearly.

The aspects of his hand which stand out are wavy Fate and Head lines, short, poor quality Heartline, a branch of which droops down to touch the Headline, either a missing or poor quality Fateline on the mount, a weak Jupiter or Index finger, a short Sunline cut by a deep bar on the mount, a long supple thumb, and a high-set, forked unsteady Headline distinctly apart from the Lifeline. This is the type of hand which can send a chill up one’s spine.

The difference between Indira Gandhi and Margaret Thatcher

Indira Gandhi was called India's Iron Lady by none other than her British counterpart, Margaret Thatcher, who was known as Britain's Iron Lady. The two women bonded when they met, have been compared, and were believed to share some similarities.

These two ladies were quite different though. Almost as dissimilar as their politics. Margaret Thatcher’s hand shows her to be a bold, arrogant, aggressive, and stubborn woman. Indira Gandhi had a similar image, but oddly enough her hand does not bear it out.

Paulo Coelho's hand reading

Paulo Coelho’s hands show a heavy development of mounts, short, straight, plump and flexible fingers with square tips, a very large thumb with a well developed and supple top phalange, and good knots on the back of the hands. Unfortunately, the Headline is not visible and therefore I had to rely solely on the shape of the hands and fingers. It was disappointing to be unable to check the Headline on the hands of an intellectual.

Oddly enough, the shape of his hands and fingers does not show him to be an intellectual. What it does show is

Li Keqiang the Chinese Premier

The right palm of Li Keqiang (Chinese PM) has a Headline starting from the Mount of Jupiter. Although a little weak at the start, this line strengthens as it goes forward. Such a Headline (starting from the Mount of Jupiter) is a rare sign, and reveals extraordinary leadership ability; the ability to handle people and get the most out of them. it shows an ambitious mind-set and immense self confidence as well as the ability to lead others. It shows the capability to rule and manage people without appearing to be a tyrant. Li Keqiang has this sign on both hands which means that he

Arvind Kejriwal's hand reading

It's not surprising why Arvind Kejriwal and Anna Hazare did not see eye to eye. Their hands show that both of them are headstrong but that is where the similarity between them ends.

Arvind Kejriwal's broad hand with the good length of fingers, the slightly low-set and long thumb and deep lines is impressive. It shows not just an energetic, strong, intellectual, balanced and focused personality, it also shows a fine calculative mind and an

Your hand lines are a reflection of you not vice versa

Your future depends on who you are and how you behave. Not on the lines ir signs of your hand. Lines do not control you or your future. You do.

Despite writing about this several times I get people who misinterpret this to mean that their fate hinges on the lines of their hand. They believe that if their hand lines are good they are lucky, and if the lines are bad it's bad luck.

An anxious businessman wanted to know if he was going to bring "financial ruin" on himself because of

Cristina Fernández President of Argentina

The reasons for Cristina Fernandez’s popularity are not far to seek although her hands do not show her to be particularly people friendly or possessing the warm empathetic personality that some politicians have. In fact her hands show her to rather secretive, and a very

Denzel Washington is an uncomplicated guy

What struck me most about Denzel Washington’s hands was the difference in the Headline in the left passive and right active hands. The Headline is better on the right hand, and this by itself shows that this man is self made. He did not inherit the level of focus, determination, self-control that he has today, but developed it. Also to be noted is the wider gap between his Head and Lifelines on the right active hand. This enhances

Sreeshanth's folly

It is believed that Sreeshanth the cricketer succumbed to temptation when he fell prey to bookies. That he was "weak." The weakness of character appears to be a widely held belief, mainly because of his known outbursts on the cricket field.

Actually, Sreeshanth's hand reveals a far more complex mind-set. He has a

Stars, Crosses, Symbols and Superstition in hand reading

Hand reading is not about superstition, but the shadow of superstition has stuck to hand and palm reading, to some extent. As a result hand readers are seen as some sort of psychics. They are supposed to unravel the mystery of signs and symbols and often some dire meaning is expected.

It's a commonly held belief that signs, shapes and symbols on the palm reveal significant events in the future, events which cannot be avoided. Whether it is triangles, circles, tridents or fish or animal signs, they are supposed to have significance. 

They don't. To begin with, shapes of animals or objects or even shapes like circles or triangles have no meaning in hand reading, if such shapes exist at all. A pure trident (a line splitting upwards into three) is an uncommon sign, and when it is found it's usually the Sunline or the Fateline which has split at the end. The meaning depends on which line it is. A trident does not foretell an event and is not necessarily an indication of good fortune.

A triangle is usually not a proper triangle at all, but just a chance meeting of lines. These lines have to be read separately.

Stars and crosses have significance if properly formed, and not part of a main line. They can reveal some aspect of character, depending on where they are found. If found on or close to a main line (but not part of it), they can point to a type of past or future event (positive or negative), but there is no certainty of this event ever taking place. Lines disappear and new ones appear - along with changes in the person.

The future event may not take place if the person changes his/her behaviour. What is fascinating is that lines indicating the past can also change if one's perception of the past changes.

Hand readers cannot predict the future with certainty because people's personalities do not remain static. Therefore to say that any line (leave alone imagined shapes and symbols) is a precursor to an event is quite a tenuous statement.

To be fair to the older hand readers from fifty years ago and beyond, it was easier to predict the future fifty or a hundred years ago when life held limited choices and there was some belief in fatalism. The lack of mobility, fewer career choices, less individualism and a reluctance to believe that the future could be changed meant that people changed less and their lives took predictable paths. Possibly that was why the predictions were often accurate.

The truth of the matter is that a hand reader is as capable of reading the future as a medical doctor is! A hundred years ago when a doctor said a person would die of a disease of say cancer there was an absolute certainty that he would. Yet, when  a doctor predicts death, patients do not think of the doc as a psychic.

Today there are cures for cancer and a myriad other diseases. People believe that they can improve their health if they change their lifestyle, and are often determined to prove the doc wrong. As long as actual changes are made (not superstitious belief on stones, gems etc) life can actually improve. If the person believes that a tragic event is 'fated' to happen, and does not attempt to change, he/she could well meet his 'fate' sooner than he/she thinks.

Why is Leonardo DiCaprio unmarried?

Most Hollywood stars marry once or twice, if not thrice. However, Leonardo DiCaprio is a known player. What makes him different from his famous colleagues in Hollywood? Reading his hand was the nearest I could get to for an answer.

The dominant mount on Leonardo’s hand is the Moon Mount, and that imbues the owner with a certain amount of self centeredness, restlessness, and

Pakistan's Imran Khan

Imran Khan is known to the world as a cricketer, a philanthropist, politician and is a celebrity of sorts. But who really is Imran Khan, the person?

The overall shape of Imran’s hand is good. It’s large, well formed, with a good length of fingers (most of them square tipped), a broad palm, and a long thumb which is very slightly low-set. What this means that Imran is a good person, broad-thinking and pragmatic, and not too religious. He is also strong-willed, even stubborn.

However, it’s clear from Headline that when it comes to organizational ability and intellect, he is

The long ring fingers of Sharad and Ajit Pawar

It is common to see similar personality characteristics in the hands of parents and children, and at times even between grand-children, and nephews and nieces. This is reflected on the hand.

It was interesting to note similarities in the hands of Sharad Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar (elder brother’s son). This similarity lies in the formation of their Jupiter and Apollo fingers (index and ring fingers). In the hands of both these men, the Apollo or ring finger is a little longer than their Jupiter or index finger.

A comparison of the hands of Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI

The personality or Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio or Pope Francis  as revealed by his hands is significantly different from that of the previous pope (Pope Benedict XVI). The main differences oddly enough lie in the realm of their belief system. While Pope Benedict's hands show that he was an uncompromising believer, rigid in his beliefs, Pope Francis’s hands show him to be more

Sylvester Stallone's hand reading

Sylvester Stallone may well be a talented guy, and neither manipulative nor selfish, but his hands show that he could be a difficult person to live with. The short thick fingers, the highly developed mounts, the deep lines, and the long supple thumb by themselves tell a story of a person who likes to live his life to the fullest. A person with high energy levels who is passionate, emotionally volatile and impulsive. Stallone's tendency to be unpredictable is accentuated as he thinks and acts quickly.  His hands also show a very high physical sex drive and coupled with the impulsive nature, it would be quite difficult for him to be faithful to his partner.

How did this man channelise his unbridled energy and reach the heights that he did?

Oscar Pistorius's hand reading

Few believe paralympian Oscar Pistorius’s claim that he shot his girl-friend Reeva by mistake; certainly not the police. What is the truth? Did Oscar Pistorius deliberately kill his girl-friend Reeva Steenkamp?

The hand can guide us to some extent. It may not be able to tell if a person has actually committed a crime, but it can tell us whether a person is capable of it. The hand reveals the inner workings of the mind, and it is also possible to surmise from the hand whether a person is likely to commit a crime of passion or a cold-blooded, premeditated one.

Pistorius's hand has

Hand Reading of Angela Merkel Chancellor of Germany

Angela Merkel's hand is not an extraordinary one, but she is the Chancellor of Germany, now in her second term. Her success is not dramatically imprinted on her hand. You don't get to see the big broad hand with at least an average length of fingers or even the low set, large thumb or the long slim Mercury finger; signs you see on many successful people. Instead, what you see is

Couple Compatibility in Hand Reading

Synastry in Astrology is the art of matching two horoscopes for the purpose of marriage. It is a popular method for those who believe in Astrology. A reader asked me whether there was a similar method in palmistry/hand reading.

There isn't an official name for matching couples through hand-reading, but it can be used for matching couples, even if it is a more complex method. The advantage of palmistry is that hand and fingerprint reading goes beyond superficial personality characteristics and in-depth into the psyche of a person, bringing out the person's hidden

Ben Affleck's Hand Reading

Ben Affleck has a beautifully shaped hand, with long slim fingers, some of them waisted, a very broad palm, one of the largest I have seen. The mounts are not too heavily developed and the mounts which are well developed are Venus and the Mount of Moon, specifically the Upper part of the Moon Mount. The thumb is also waisted, a little low-set and longer than normal. All of this points to a finely balanced, generous, unselfish, compassionate, and warm person with strength of character and

Asaram Bapu Hand Reading

Asaramji Bapu’s strongly etched lines, well developed mounts and the long thumb with its long first phalange speaks of a strong and willful personality. A person whose strength of personality is augmented by the qualities shown by the long Mercury finger and its developed mount - alertness, tact, intuition and shrewdness. He would also possess excellent
