q:

What development would counteract the bad influence of the grille?

a:

A good Head line and clear line of Fortune would do much towards modifying the evil effects of the grille when found on any part of the hand, except on the mounts of Jupiter and Saturn.

q:

What does the grille indicate on the various mounts?

a:

On the mount of Jupiter it indicates pride and ambition, egotism and love of rule; on Saturn it shows great misfortune and bad luck in all undertakings; and if a star is also pre­sent it indicates nervous spasms, morbid imagination and wild exaltation, amounting almost to ecstasy.

q:

What does the grille indicate?

a:

It indicates an increase of the bad qualities of amount or line according to that which it is most near, and when seen on a small mount, themanifestations of that mount will be as strong as if it were a largely developed one without the grille.

q:

What is the meaning of a line from a spot on the Life line, ending on the mount of Venus with a star?

a:

This is an indication of some unhappy love affair which has been wrecked, but the effects of which can never be fully overcome, because the love has entwined itself so deeply into the nature and was also supported by the reason and intellect.

q:

What does the spot indicate?

a:

Its meaning is according to its position and colour: for instance, a white spot is almost harmless, except when on the Head line, and when on the Heart line it indicates a conquest of love. A blue spot indi­cates the presence of a nervous disease: if on the Head line it shows danger of brain fever, or nervous weakness; and if on the Heart line, weakness of the heart or an illness through love.

q:

What is the meaning of the circle in palmistry?

a:

This sign is very rare, and yet an unfortunate one on the whole, for it indicates an injury to the qualities of the line or mount to which it is most near; for instance, on the mount of Apollo it indicates success and glory to a dangerous extent, on the mount of Moon danger of death by drowning, and on any other mount, dangerous brilliancy arising from its particular qualities: on the Life line it is an indication of blindness, and on the Heart line it shows weakness of that organ.

q:

What does a square on the Head line indicate?

a:

It shows a critical moment when the brain is exerted to its utmost capacity, because of the imminent danger brought about by enemies or the force of circumstances; but the square is the sign of a preservation preventing the intellect giving way under the strain, which would occur if the Head line were broken.

q:

Does the square always have a good signification?

a:

With one exception, for when it is seen on the upper part of the mount of Venus it is an indication of seclusion from the world, or imprisonment of some kind; whether in a con­vent, asylum or prison, can be best ascertained by other signs on the hand which would confirm it.

q:

What does a star indicate when surrounded by a square?

a:

On the mount of Saturn this would signify preser­vation from assassination or other violent death, and if the corners of the square are very red, it shows preservation from death by fire. On any other part of the hand it is a sign of almost miraculous escape from some catastrophe which appeared inevitable.

q:

What does the square indicate?

a:

It indicates a protec­tion from evil, and is a sign of power and assistance to that part of the hand, line or mount, to which it is most near; it also shows good sense, calmness and impassioned justice, on the part of the subject in whose hand it is seen.
