Demystifying the Art of Palm Reading


Also known as Chiromancy, Palm reading has its roots in ancient Indian and Egyptian cultures. As an art that took form in East Asia, it has transcended borders and is now popular in many parts of the world.  Its success can be largely owed to the articulate and accurate nature of its predictions. The lines on the palm can accurately predict the past, present and even future events. Palm reading considers various aspects of the hand-the shape (cheirognom), the mounts (cheirosophy) and the lines and formations on the palm (cheiromancy).

 The shape of the hand plays an important role in determining a person’s character. It is the first thing that palm readers notice while conducting a palm reading analysis.
