Palmistry question and answers

Learn about the principles of palmistry Q & A

Complete art of practical palmistry explained

Palmistry
Q :

What does the palm indicate when it is longer than the fingers?

A :

A dull intellect and a person void of tine suscepti­bilities. It implies the same in Palmistry as organic quality does in Phrenology, showing whether the subject be high or low in refinement.

Q :

Why are some palms thin, dry and hard?

A :

Because these belong to a person of a timid, shrinking nature, pos­sessing little energy to keep the blood in proper circulation, hence the hands are ill nourished and the health poor.

Palmistry
Q :

What does a thick clumsy palm indicate?

A :

An obstinate egotistical nature, a strong constitution and plenty of force, but it is of a brute nature and indicates much selfishness.

Q :

If a Spatulate hand is soft what does it indicate?

A :

It has the effect of lessening its activity: it shows the subject to be a late riser, as love of comfort is indicated by the soft­ness; such a person would be fond of being amongst activity, but he must not be worried 'by anything and must have his love of pleasure gratified at the same time. Such persons are also fond of elegance, but it must be a fashionable elegance, and even their religion will be that upon which least slurs are cast by the public.

Palmistry
Q :

Are females smooth fingered?

Yes, generally, and the more Knotty the fingers the less she trusts to instinct and the more she leans to reason. Where a woman has a large thumb, Knotty fingers of a Square or Spatulate type, she is a born leader, and more a therease in business and intel­lectual work than in domestic duties.

Q :

Why is there a difference between the hands of male and female?

Because females naturally have more instinct than males, and their feelings are more inclined to religion. It is a well-known fact that females are more impressionable than males, thoughless practical: woman imagines things whilst man, ever practical, carries out the more practical part of her ideas and imaginations. Personally, I think that in the case of English women, there have been so many generations in which she has been content with domestic love and duties, until practical, scientific, and intellectual pursuits are now looked upon as outside her "sphere"; consequently the hand indicates an idealistic, or dreamy and imaginative nature than otherwise, and when some female with Knotty and Square fingers or a Spatulate hand and large thumb, appears before the world to demonstrate other themes than those connected with home duties, she is regarded as violating the laws of society or trespassing into the domains of the "lords of creation'. It is different, however, with our ulsters in America, who are more active, scientific and pushing in their habits, and consequently possess hands more akin to those of the male sex. The only thing to be regretted concerning the tendency of the female type of hand to change thus, is that the world would doubtless lose much inspiration, grace, gentle­ness and pleasure, attendant upon the manifestation of the more idealistic type of hand.

Palmistry
Q :

Do the descriptions of different types of hands apply equally to male and female?

A :

Yes, but it should be borne in mind that the pure Square and Spatulate are not often seen on an English woman's hand, the Conical, or Psychical slightly modified by the Square or Spatulate, being more representative of the female, though in the male sex the Square and Spat­ulate type is chiefly predominant.

Q :

What is the difference between a Spatulate and a Square hand, as regards veneration or reverence?

A :

The Spatulate per­son will reverence his superior son account of his love for them, but for him to submit to a dictator from any other cause, the authority must be powerful indeed. The Square banded subject has a deep respect for properly constituted authority, because he reverences the principle, rather than the person, and will pay homage on this account.

Palmistry
Q :

What is the sign of an enduring nature?

A :

A person who is capable of long endurance, possesses a decided curve on the outer edge of the hand from the wrist to the end of the fourth finger. The more straight the outline in this direction, the less ability there is to endure either mental or physical ex­posure, opposition or tension.

Q :

Is a large hand or a small hand best?

A :

Neither hands of a medium size are far the best for all practical purposes. Being devoid as they are of much of the force and harshness of rule which characterises the owner of the Large hand, yet having more power to carry out their ideas than Small handed persons.
