The heart line begins under the little finger, also known as the Mercury finger and moves uppermost on your hand, under all the fingers.
This is the line which illustrates the degree of sensitivity with which you approach the world as well as tells the story of your personal emotional history. This is the line which rules a person’s emotional idealism as well as a sense of passion.
This line portrays the kind of people that you love and how you love them. When the Heart Line appears lower on the hand, this shows that the heart rules the intellect.
If the line is straight primarily, then it shows a person who is the opposite of that, showing a person who is ruled by their intellect and neglects their emotional needs.
The heart line often branches out and the way that one understands the branching of the heart line will be helpful in the interpretation factors as is learning where the heart line ends.
The heart line ends either somewhere below the Jupiter or Saturn fingers or at least somewhere between them. When the dominant rising line from the heart line branches to Saturn it can be indicative of a powerful attachment to the monetary in romantic situations.
This could be someone who cares a lot about money and the way that someone buys things for them dictates how they feel about a person. This could also be about an effort to dominate or discipline a love object.
Primarily this person is very fixed about what material possessions need to be in their lives. When the heart line branches in a split formation between Jupiter and Saturn the person is idealistic and are often extremely respectful and kind as well as faithful lovers.
If the heart line runs flat under Jupiter without going above the Jupiter mount, it indicates a lover of the entire world, someone who does not get stuck in attachment. When the heart line rises up into the mount of Jupiter the person loves, supportive as well as regal and highly efficient in manners of money.
A distinctive, well channeled, deep heart line is indicative of a person whose emotions run very deep. This person, when in a deep and connected relationship would allow that love to flow out into the rest of the human experience making their finances, their emotions, their mundane life one full of luck and health.
When the life line is chained or broken or even shallow this can be very frustrating for the bearer because it is symbolic of flightiness and inconsistency. We all go through a somewhat inconsistent phase in our life, but if this line stays broken or shallow, and then this means that love is hard to find for you because your attention span does not last very long.
The heart line is considered to have a better start when it is straight with no tassels and breaks. If this is the case, it indicates that the child received the complete love of it's mother from birth. Such a subject has developed a strong emotional body.
If the heart line begins with an island or appears chained the subject may have even been unwanted by the mother, which has lead to difficulties in life. This can be a surrogate child or a child conceived out of rape. A line which is weak and thin means that the child was not given much attention during childhood.
The real cause of this laxity in child care could be that the mother was sick during or after the pregnancy. When the start of the heart line is thicker than usual then positively, this is a sign of excess love during pregnancy. Alternatively, the subject's mother might have not been able to give her love due to emotional or physical conditions.
A distressed heart line at the beginning on both hands, shows a repeated choice of an incarnation which does not lead to proper growth of the emotional parts of the body. In some people, their heart lines have improved over a long period of time.
The lines can start off chained and as it moves across the hand little or no tassels appear, this is a normal occurrence. The main secret behind such occurrence is that such people have learnt to control their lives and are in a better position to deal with their emotional problems. If the line arches towards the life line this can suggest proper restructuring of their lives.
To have a fine, weak heart line means that the person has problems related to the circulatory system. This means the subject may suffer a death caused by heart disease or strokes. When making your analysis, it is better to compare between the heart and the head line to see which one is more bolder. The difference can be used to point out the type of diseases a person is likely to suffer from. Many marks on the heart lines is indicator of a weak immune system and a pointer that the individual must take extra care in life.
Handwriting Analysis - Islands on the heart line
I do have this written down below but I wanted to mention it here, an island on the heart line is important and should not be overlooked. Islands under the finger of the sun (apollo) normally known as the ring finger indicates there will be problems in love. If the island is under the small finger then there is problems in the stomach.
There was a study by Dr Eugene in the book “your hand and your health” he basically said that if there are any defects such as a break, chain or island then this can suggest being overweight, high cholesterol and high blood pressure and if you do have an island then you need to follow a low fibre and have proper exercise and deal with stress better. It could also mark affections or problems in love. Sorry, this is not more positive.
Wait...here are some more interesting marks on the heart line
