Complete art of practical palmistry explained

Palmistry
Q :

What are habitually bitten nails a sign of?

A :

This is an indication of nervousness, a worrying disposition, and a con­stant state of unrest and mental irritation: such a person is usually an annoyance to himself and to those around; but it is also a sign of mental activity which has been ill-trained and wrongly used.

Q :

What is the meaning of the hand which moves rapidly to and fro whilst walking?

A :

A brisk moving hand is only the outward sign of a brisk, restless, active, and busy mind. One that must always be doing something, and is consequently liable to overstrain the system in the accomplishment of work. These are the kind of persons who have been and are of most service to the world.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the meaning of the lifeless and listless hand which hangs limp during walking?

A :

This is a sure indication (when not paralysed) of a slow dull, sneaking and suspicious nature, one who is too lazy to put forth any efforts to do either himself or anyone else any good, but who will not object to doing harm to another, if he has not to make any great effort. Such persons should be avoided.

Q :

What is the meaning of hands which are almost always spread open?

A :

This is an indication of an open and truthful nature, a spirit who being honest and sincere himself, thinks everyone else is the same, and consequently such a person is easily cheated and deceived by the unscrupulous. In love affairs the open-handed persons are sincere, straightforward, and can did, showing speedily both their love and disdain, the latter often to their disadvantage, as it is the cause of enemies springing up to their hurt.

Palmistry
Q :

What do habitually closed hands indicate?

 

A very-cunning nature, with much suspicion, mistrust, and evasive power: such persons are very hard to deal with, as it is so difficult to get at their real feelings, wishes, or opinions. It also shows a mean and avaricious nature, and such persons make cruel and revengeful enemies.

Q :

Has Palmistry a physiological basis?

Yes, it is a well known fact that certain forms denote certain character­istics in both man, beast, andthe vegetable kingdom: it is likewise true of the hands. It is the action of the innumerable nerves in the hand which are in connection with the brain (the chief instrument of the mind), which are the cause of lines, or more properly speaking, minute furrows which appear in the palm of the hand: this is demonstrable by the fact that the more "nervous" or “mental" the temperament of the individual is, the quicker is the production of the lines in question, and the greater their number; whilst the hand of a person whose temperament is muscular rather than nervous, and whose nervous system is consequently less impressionable, has but few lines or marks: events of importance may occur in the life, and the effects of such event be lasting upon the career of the individual, yet in the hand no sign of such event may be manifested, on account of the strength of the nerves and the general unimpression ability of the individual.

Palmistry
Q :

Does Palmistry harmonise with Phrenology?

A :

Yes, for instance, those who are large in that part of the cranium devoted to "love of applause", "self confidence” and "combativeness", are always fully developed in the mount of Jupiter, which indicates ambition, and in Mars which indicates courage and self-preservation; again, where"cautiousness" is large with an active imagination from a Phrenological point of view, the mount of Moon will be fully developed, which gives rise to morbid tendencies and wild imaginations of evil, danger, etc, and thus each branch of character reading can be shown to harmonise with the other, but it is best for every student to prove for himself.

Q :

What is the indication of the sign of any planet being seen on the mount of another?

A :

This indicates the intensification of the qualities of the two mounts instead of one: for instance, the sign of the Moon on the mount of Jupiter indicates mysticism and error in action and use of power. Mercury seen on Ju­piter, indicates noble eloquence and administrative talents.

Palmistry
Q :

What does the sign of a planet indicate when seen?

A :

Their presence always shows an intensification of the qualities of any mount, whether they stand distinctly by themselves, or are woven in as if by accident with either the principal or chance lines.

Q :

Is it true that the signs of particular planets are sometimes found in a hand?

A :

Yes, but these instances are very rare: there are also instances of the sign of a planet being seen on another mount; such as Mercury seen on the mount of Jupiter, etc.
