Complete art of practical palmistry explained

Palmistry
Q :

How does the Astral fluid from the planets affect mankind?

A :

In the same way as the heat of the sun affects us, only it is more imperceptible, owing, of course, to the great difference in their size compared with that of the sun.

Q :

Why are the terms in Palmistry similar to those used in Astrology?

A :

The fact that the astral fluid of the universe influences mankind, no doubt prompted the ancient Palmists to name different parts of the hand after different planets: the influence of the different planets upon mankind when in ascension, being found to correspond to the characteristics in­dicated by a development of the different parts of the hand named after the planets.

Palmistry
Q :

How can the harmony of Astrology and Palmistry be proved?

A :

To obtain a full reply it is necessary to understand Astrology, the teaching of which is not the aim of this work, but each true science must corroborate what the others declare; there­fore, Astrology, properly understood, must and does be about what Palmistry in the hands of able delineators asserts. From all writers on Astrology we learn that a subject of Venus would be fond of music, not inclined to much laborious work, but loving; and when in excess, lustful and inclined to immo­rality: these are also the attributes given to the influence on Venus as indicated by a large development of that mount from a Palmistic point of view, and the characteristics of the other mounts also harmonise with those indicated by the planets after which they are named.

Q :

Has palmistry any distinct connection with Astrology?

A :

Not necessarily, for it is a distinct science in itself, but al­though some writers would repudiate the idea of it being at all connected with Astrology, if it were not for the influence of the electric fluids in the atmosphere and therefore of the stars also, upon our nerves, our nerves would not make the lines and impressions upon the hand, which, after all, are merely registered influences from the world without or the mind within, to form the science of Palmistry; therefore I consider that whilst all the other sciences must and do har­monise with Palmistry, yet Astrology has the closest con­nection with it as a science, and the two are in a measure in­separable as to theory, though not in practice, for a Palmist need not understand Astrology, neither need an Astrologer understand Palmistry, although the study of the one frequently leads to the study of the other.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the shape and appearance of a good musician's hand?

For an instrumentalist the type should be Spatulate, Saturns mount high, the nails short, the joints well developed, good mount of Moon, thumb long and strong, good line of Fortune and Ring of Venus clear. For a successful vocalist the fingers should be smooth,type mixed, mount of Venus most largely developed to give sympathy and a desire to please, and that natural magnetism which is always found with a well developed base to the thumb.

Q :

What is the appearance of a successful doctor's hand?

The mount of Mercury should be full and three clear, upright lines upon it, the line of Fortune clearly traced, the mount of Moon well developed to show love of discovery, and for a surgeon, the hand should also be rather hard and the fingers Square or Spatulate.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the appearance of a successful actor's hand?

A :

The type should be Spatulate or Square, the mount of Venus high, the Heart lines lightly turned towards the mount of Mercury, and lines running from the mount of Mars to the mount of Apollo, showing fame and celebrity which is worked for.

Q :

What is the appearance of a literary hand?

A :

Persons to be successful in literary work should have the mounts of Jupiter and the Moon well developed, and a long finger of Apollo. The type of hand should be Spatulate or Square with the second joints well developed; the hand should be soft rather than hard. Literary critics should also possess short nails and have a high mount of Mercury. Capacity for poetry is shown by a large development of the mounts of Moon and Venus, and the Head line gently sloping downward; if both joints are developed the poetic productions will contain more logic and reason than mere words which form rhyme and rhythm.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the meaning of many little lines from the Life line to the quadrangle?

A :

These show estrangements from friends, and if the nails are short the estrangements are caused by the argumentativeness of the subject, because the short nails indicate a criticising and argumentative nature.

Q :

What does a chained Heart line indicate when touched under the mount of Mercury by a Line from Venus?

A :

This is an indication that the whole life is marred or blighted by someone of the opposite sex, and if a black spot also appears on the line from Venus the subject will lose a conjugal partner.
