Chiromancy simple means palmistry. Palmistry is about studying the human hand and evaluating an individuals standing in life in regards to health, wealth etc. The lines and mounts on the hand are often used in palmistry, as these are the physical signs that can be read.
Palmistry dates back to prehistoric times as evaluated through paintings of the hand of that time. That indicates that an interest in the human hand has been going on for ages and the curiosity that it held still holds true with the many people that go get their palms read.
Many people use palmistry reading for many things, but mainly to know about their future. A persons relationship can also be "for seen" through the readings of the love line. It is this need to know that makes people do this and they perhaps get a better understanding of themselves in the process. In that way palmistry does have its uses and as long as there is a demand so will there be an equal amount in the supply.
The love line is said to characterize the nature of our life and what kind of soul mate we are most likely to be compatible with. And we need to know this, because often we make mistakes and by knowing what will best suit our personalities we then are able to narrow the search and therefore limit the disappointment.
The palmistry life line also sparks up a lot of curiosity, as it interlinks with our curiosity of death. We want to know, if possible, when we are going to die or if a short palmistry life line indicates a short life. As it is clear that we do not live forever, yet we have an inborn fear of death which plagues us, and we want to know how long is our time on this earth. Making one wonder - what would we do differently if we did know exactly when we were going to die?
Our palms can be seen as the blueprint of our lives, as it seems to be able to tell something about us, our past, present and perhaps future.
The life line is said to indicate longevity, vitality and the quality of life and it starts between the thumb and the index finger. The love line holds relevance to many people because it indicates something about us as individuals in ratio to our relationship.
A relationship in this instance is one based on a partner or potential partner. People, especially women, want to know if they will get married, engaged and so forth as these things can all be read on the love line.
Finding that special someone is an ingrained human desire. We long for companionship and preferably one that can withstand a lifetime. Palmistry offers solutions to this human plight.
Astrology, especially palmistry, is about discovering old patients and releasing yourself from them so that new adventures can be experienced.
However it is about choice. It is your life after all and you can choose whether or not you believe in palmistry or astrology. That is the joy that comes with living in a liberated society, the freedom of choice.
You can explore the world of palmistry, as it does indeed spark up curiosity and you can opt to believe in what is said about your life line, love line etc. And maybe it can be an eye-opener as such to learn something about you. Perhaps that is the catalyst for a change you have been waiting for.
