Complete art of practical palmistry explained

Palmistry
Q :

What is the meaning of lines from the second phalange of thumb to the Life line?

A :

These lines are said to be Marriage lines by some writers, and the time of marriage is shown by the date the Life line is reached; but from experience and observation they appear more properly to point to a direct influence by persuasion over the life by some relative, and if crooked the influence is an evil one.

Q :

What do several lines running round the thumb at the second joint indicate?

A :

These lines show that money will come to the subject through the influence of other persons.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the meaning of a star on the thumb?

A :

On the second phalange in a female hand it promises great riches; when on the mount of Venus a different meaning is assigned to it. On the first phalange in a female hand it shows good fortune, but on a man's hand it is said to indicate the reverse.

Q :

What is the meaning of a cross on the side of the thumb near the nail?

A :

This shows unchastity, but when there are two crosses close together it indicates a love of ease and luxury.

Palmistry
Q :

What are cross lines on the thumb a sign of?

These indicate riches or inheritances, when seen at the side of the first phalange near the nail.

Q :

What is the meaning of lines going up the thumb?

When there are several lines going the entire length of the thumb it shows constancy and devotion both in love and friend­ship; if the lines come from the mount of Venus into the second phalange it shows a person much loved.

Palmistry
Q :

Does a good thumb affect the influence of bad signs in a hand?

A :

It frequently modifies the evil effects of other signs because of the great influence which the will has upon our actions and our surroundings.

Q :

Does the third phalange of the thumb and the mount of Venus mean the same?

A :

Some writers hold them identical, but others assert the contrary, which seems the most reasonable course; for characteristics are seen in persons possessing a long third phalange of the thumb which are contrary to those possessed by a person with the mount of Venus largely developed. By the third phalange in contradistinction to Venus is intended the outer and not the inner root of the thumb: for instance, when Venus is large it indicates voluptuousness, love of the opposite sex and a tendency for sensuality; but when the third phalange is large or long, it has often been proved to indicate fastidiousness in love affairs, singular purity of thought and action with respect to sexual feelings and a tendency to chastity rather than sensualism: but I may also add that when this third phalange is so well developed Venus itself is as a rule, rather flat.

Palmistry
Q :

In what shaped hands does a large Venus have a bad signification?

A :

When the hand is soft, the fingers rounded or pointed, when Mars is cross-barred and the Via Lascivia is present.

Q :

What is the meaning of a grille on the mount of Venus?

A :

It is an indication of a sensual nature and also a sign of depravity unless the will is strong and the line of Fortune clearly developed, when it is a means of inspiring the subject to deeds of manliness and heroism.
