Your Future is in the Palm of Your Hand
Palm reading has existed in our culture ever since the Ancient Greece. Palm reading claims to study your characteristics and read your future based on the lines of your hands. Each line on your palm means something different. Often the readings can be conflicting but this is due to the fact that many people have different interpretations of the readings.
A Brief History of Palm Reading
Palm reading has been ever present throughout our history and our present. In the middle ages the Catholic Church tried to suppress palm reading. Stating that it was a form of magic and therefore an affront to our lord and savior. It was condemned alongside necromancy and was listed as one of seven “Forbidden Arts”. People truly believed that palm reading had strong powers, people still do.
Not only do people read the lines of your hands but they also take into consideration you character, and the bumps on your hands. The space that occupies the lines. Palm readings usually begin with your dominant hand. The hand you use the most i.e. the one you write with. Your other hand is believed to carry family traits or hereditary information.
