Cross bars are any lines that cross the life line. Their overall effect is disruption or cutting the current flow of the life line. When the cross bar is present on the life line it produces an undesirable effect. This can be illness or simply a setback in life.
There are instances that the Life line is cut by a smaller thin lines - that are too fine to cut the Life line into two. These fine lines represent that the bearer is nervous because of external influences. The small fine lines across the lifeline can also be a sign of worry. For the fine lines to cross the Life line and health line means the bearer maybe exposed to sicknesses. If the cross bars are deep, cutting the life line at several points, then the sickness will be severe.
Redness of the cross bar's indicate fevers, the depth of the cross lines are directly proportional to the seriousness of the sickness. The age for the various ailments can be plotted on the life line. When the cross bar ends on a grille by the Saturn mount (the area by the middle finger) after cutting through the life line, then the illness is a defect of Saturn. This means all the qualities of the Saturn mount (affection, warmth, passion, saving money and love) will be lost for a short period of time.
In the case for a cross bar passes over the Venus mount (under the thumb) into the Life line, this means that parents will make the bearers life difficult, especially if coupled with a chained Life line. If the cross bar's transforms to wavy lines then the subject may be victim of bilious fever or even jaundice, the age for the sickness will be read from the cutting point for the cross bar on the life line.
If the cross bar cuts the head line then the bearer may be suffering from throat complications, bronchial trouble, and blood disorders. The nails will offer confirmation for bronchial trouble, as well as presence of islands on the health line. If the cross bar cuts the lunar mount (at the bottom of the hand below the little finger) the bearer will encounter trouble from their digestive system. On the other hand, if the cross bars cuts into the middle moon Mount then the complication in question is rheumatism or gout.
If the cross bar is a grille that crosses the lunar mount this is concrete proof that the bearer has or will be having trouble in their urinary system, which includes the bladder and kidneys. The bladder or kidney condition will be confirmed if the hand is colored white, flabby, or soft, with a transparent appearance.
Review the appearance of the life line after the several cuts from the cross bar, as it is a status of recovery, whether partial or complete. If the cross bar cuts over a thin life line then this changes to an island, cross, dot, or in the head line the bearer is prone to attack on the brain. In some rare cases, the cross bars that cut into the line of life will emerge from the influence lines that are situated on Venus mount. If this is the case, then the bearer has suffered in childhood. If the cross bar becomes narrowed then close to the middle of the Head and Health line (known as quadrangle), this means the person suffered or is suffering from asthma. If the crossbar has a composure that is ladder they will suffer from stomach related problems, especially if this crosses the health line.
