What is palm reading? And how to read palms
Palmistry (AKA palm reading) is a type of chiromancy or study of connections between one’s traits and the shape, size, lines, color, and other physical attributes of their hands.
As the Psychic Library discusses, most readers assign each hand (and its characteristics) as specific points of interpretation, all dependent upon which one you hold as dominant. For example, if you’re right-handed, the lines and shapes found on your left hand would be interpreted to describe your character, personality, and destiny; while your right hand would tell the story of how your life has unfolded and any struggles you may face. But if you’re a lefty, this analysis would be read with the roles reversed.
The major lines
The three major lines readers most often look at are the Life Line, the Heart Line, and the Head Line. Using their size, location, direction, and the appearance of any distinct markings or patterns, readers are able to offer insight into different aspects of your life. And as with any other type of psychic reading, it’s encouraged you ask your reader questions about what they’re interpreting–just make sure these questions are behavior or pattern-based and not inquisitions demanding concrete predictions about your future.
The Life Line: This is the line people find themselves most curious about because of the common misconception that the Life Line reveals how long you’ll live or when you’ll die. Although it doesn’t get quite that specific, the Life Line does shed light on your relationships with others, overall physical health, and emotional well-being.
Location: the line that begins between your index finger and your thumb, and continues down towards where the base of your thumb and wrist meet.
The Heart Line (AKA the Love Line or Mensal Line): Reveals your emotional nature and love language. Some readers use it as a predictor of physical health (specifically related to the heart).
Location: Starts under either the index or middle finger and extends towards your pinky (above your life and head lines).
The Head Line (AKA the Wisdom Line): In Chinese Palmistry, the Head Line is considered to be the most important line to interpret because it indicates intellectual development, intuitive abilities, and the inner workings of your thought process.
Location: It begins between your thumb and index finger (just above your Life Line) and runs across your palm horizontally. In some cases, the Head Line will begin directly on the Life Line causing forked lines (known as the Writer’s Fork or Laywer’s Fork) which are interpreted as meaning “strong-willed,” “mind-over-matter.”
The minor lines
Depending on the palmist, there are about a dozen secondary or minor lines for them to focus on during your reading. The minor lines tell the reader about your potential strengths, weaknesses, interests, and talents. Minor lines tend to be fainter than major lines, so if they’re not apparent that’s not uncommon–but having them will allow your reader to gain more insight into who you are with a more detailed interpretation. Some of the most popular minor lines for interpreting are the Fate Line, Intuition Line, Marriage (Relationship/Love) Line, Apollo (Sun) Line, Bracelet Lines, and the Girdle of Venus.
Fate Line (AKA Line of Destiny): Tied to one’s life path, the Fate line is believed to reveal the effects of people, events, (and life in general) has on an individual and the way they react to it. It may also signify what life was like during childhood, as well as shed light on educational and career choices.
Location: Starts in the center of the palm below the middle finger and stretches down to the base of your palm. If there is a double line (or Sister Line) present that is said to predict success in your career.
Intuition Line: It’s believed that people with an Intuition Line are, as you could guess, intuitive. They’re able to read people and situations with ease and may grow to be introverted because picking up other people’s energy is exhausting!
Location: Begins at the base of the pinky and overarches to the base of the palm.
Marriage (Relationship or Love) Line: Contrary to what you may already be thinking, the Marriage/Relationship/Love Line isn’t always a single line (some people have one, some have a few) or a predictor of the number of marriages. Its focus is broader, spelling out the number of relationships that will be significant in one’s life.
Location: Begins at the edge of the palm and underneath the pinky, extends horizontally towards the center of the palm.
Apollo (Sun) Line: Similar to the role of the sun sign in astrology, the Sun Line is a predictor of one’s journey through life–are you creative or outgoing? You may have a long, stand-out Sun Line. But if you have one that’s more inconsistent, it may indicate struggles.
Location: Below Apollo’s Ring, the Sun Line begins at the base of the ring finger and extends down your palm towards the base of your wrist.
Bracelet Lines: Representative of health, destiny, and the balance of body, mind, and spirit. Some readers believe having four Bracelet Lines is a symbol of luck and longevity!
Location: Base of the palm and wrist.
Girdle of Venus: It’s believed that this line is a symbol of a high-strung, excitable, and sensual personality. People with this line may also tend to be anxious (since that’s really just excitable energy turned inward), and if the line has cracks in it, it may indicate that the person is hot-tempered and/or deeply sensitive.
Location: Begins below the ring finger and extends towards the index finger.
Like we said before, this isn’t a complete list and it’s not unusual for some of the Minor Lines to not be apparent on your hand, so if you can’t find a particular one, that’s to be expected. After all, lines aren’t the only physical attributions palm readers take into consideration. Your hands are also home to mounts, textured patterns/markings, hand/finger shapes, and colors that are all up for interpretation. But since all of that is out of the realm of beginners, we won’t be discussing their expositions.

How to get a free palm reading: Trusted sites that offer free palm reading services
Generally speaking, readings aren’t cheap. So when a site claims to offer “free readings,” we never know what to expect. Luckily, we did find some solid sources for free accurate palm readings–if you’re willing to do the work yourself and/or don’t care to know more than just the basics.
However, if you want an in-depth palm reading online (or would like an experienced palmist to do the work for you), you’ll have to shell out some cash, since most trusted sites will only offer new users free minutes to use towards a reading (versus offering a completely free reading). But if you ask us, having to pay for only a portion of a call or chat is way better than having to pay for the full reading. For those of you interested, listed below are a few of the only (close to) free palm reading sites we’d recommend for beginners.
Established in 1999, Kasamba has become the world’s largest and most popular site for astrology-related services, including online palm reading. Readers create a profile that advertises the types of readings they offer and respective pricing, which allows users to rate and discuss their experience directly on-site or via the mobile app. Kasamba readers are available 24/7 and offer a variety of services such as numerology readings, love readings, tarot readings, personal astrology readings, and more.
Currently, Kasamba is offering new clients three free minutes plus 50% off your first call or chat with an online psychic.
Price: $2.50+/min (regularly $4.99+/min)
The online palm readings for love offered by Keen readers are no joke. Although the site has low ratings on customer review services like SiteJabber, you’ll see most of the complaints aren’t about the readings themselves but how the site runs its payment options. To avoid conflict, reviewers recommend only loading the amount of money you plan to use for a reading at any given time. Because if you upload $40, spend $15 on a call and then forget about the balance and let sit too long, Keen will deduct value for “inactivity.”
Keen is also offering all new users three free minutes to use towards any reading!
AstroSage doesn’t host a whole house of readers, but it does offer guides for free palmistry readings and allow users to contact an astrologer or a palmist for a small fee. The site itself is a little hard to navigate, just because there’s a lot on it, which is why I recommend you download the free app. On the app, the abundance of content is made clear–AstroSage will likely answer any questions you may have regarding palmistry (or astrology in general).
Price: Site and app are free to use/download, users can choose to chat with a reader for $7/question.
If you choose to get a free palmistry reading online through AstrologyCircle, you’ll also be taught how to read palms through the service’s online-quiz-like structure (sans interpretation, anyway). AstrologyCircle makes learning the basics of palmistry easy by providing solid photo guides for searching and describing the major and minor lines, as well as a description of each line’s location and significance. Then at the end of the quiz, the site will provide you with a (very brief) summary or in this case, palmistry reading. It’s nowhere near as detailed as getting a reading from a professional, but it’s still fun and pretty accurate.
Another great resource for teaching yourself how to read a palm is HandAnalysis.com. Although the site’s interface is a little hard to navigate, the amount of information on it makes up for it. In addition to very thorough explanations of lines, patterns and other palmistry basics, HandAnalysis also includes original graphs and drawings detailing the exact locations of everything to be considered. So if you’re a visual learner, you’ll want to bookmark this page ASAP.
Psychic Library doesn’t offer free palm reading online, but it does host a fantastic amount of literature for learning how to read a palm or for finding the answer to any other psychic/divine science-related questions you may have. Personally, this is one of our favorite educational resources. You’ll find hundreds of articles dissecting the foundations of everything from palmistry to Chakra, Aura reading, and meditation.
