Is your whole life in your hands? Palm reader Melanie Ollenberg thinks so. She stopped by the show to teach the Boys what the various lines on your hands say about you, your health, psychological well being, personality and much more. So, take a look at the diagram below and see what your palm might be saying.
- This line represents quality of life and sense of well-being, but it does not tell you how long you're going to live. It also indicates moves, journeys, transitions, new responsibilities, family boundaries and general health.
- Lines that cross or make a chain formation indicate trauma, emotional distress or worry about the health of a loved one.
- The closer the life line hugs the thumb, the more introverted the personality, the more self-centered and the greater lack of energy. The wider the arc, the more extroverted, the greater the resistance to disease and the greater the strength and stamina the person has.
- A large break denotes a major transition/new life and is often joined with a finer "repair" line. If there isn't a repair line, it reveals a lessening of energy as a result of the transition. Look for and encourage the development of "repair lines" to help in the healing journey. You can do this by surrounding yourself with things that would enhance energy. Focus on health and wellness and slowly that repair line will form.
- Physically, the line represents the head, brain and nervous system. Psychologically, it represents mental abilities, how we think and how we see the world.
- If the line is strong and uninterrupted, it indicates good intellect, strength of mind and good concentration.
- If the line is weak or impaired, it indicates you have difficulty concentrating for longer periods and difficulty learning from books or lectures -- you learn much better through actually doing. It can also indicate headaches and anxieties.
- When the head line joins with the heart line, it means you're a logical thinker when it comes to feelings; you have a formidable sense of purpose and you're an intense, all-or-nothing type of person.
- When your head line is straight, it indicates you have a logical, rational, analytical mind. Your interests are more scientific, mathematical, commercial or technological.
- When the line is curved, it says you're a creative, imaginative and divergent thinker. Your interests lie in arts, media, languages and communications. If it's curved deeply, it means you have an outstanding imagination and intuition and are more prone to mood swings. A soft curve halfway down the palm shows an interest in psychology, history or literature.
- If the line ends in a fork, it shows you're a writer.
- This line represents the heart, circulation and cardiovascular system. It mirrors emotions and how we relate to others, as well as how we feel and express our love.
- If the heart line appears close to the base of the fingers, it shows you're controlled and calculating in terms of the heart and relationships. Your head rules your heart.
- If the heart line is further down toward the head line, it indicates you have a warm, compassionate nature. You tend to let the heart rule the head.
- If the line reaches the base of the index finger, it shows you're achievement motivated and you have high expectations. You strive to do your best and expect the same from others. It's difficult for partners to live up to your expectations. You're a loyal and devoted companion.
- If the line reaches between the index and middle fingers, it means you seek to please your partner and you show love by doing things for them. You provide solid, sensible support and genuine love. It's difficult to talk about deeper feelings; you have a tendency to bottle up emotions.
- If it reaches the index mount, it means you seek an idealized view of a partner, but it's not often a very realistic view. You tend to feel disillusioned early in relationships; therefore, it's important to remember that everybody has their blemishes.
- If the line ends horizontally, it indicates family and friends are secondary to work; you expect partners and loved ones to fit themselves around your schedule. You feel there is great value in pursuing separate interests and maintaining your own social life.
- If the line ends in a fork, it shows you're a caring, sympathetic, good listener with great empathic skills.
- This line is about your sense of purpose and direction. It reflects career and progress through life.
- The stronger and longer the line, the greater sense of control, responsibility and duty you have.
- If you don't have a fate line, it shows you're not bound by commitments or obligations.
- If the line is fragmented, it shows you have a tendency to stop and start projects. You can feel like you're not having a strong sense of grounding or making headway in life.
- If the fate line comes from the life line, it means family ties give you a sense of purpose/direction. For example, you're part of the family business or you use the family's resources to secure your own path.
- It tells the story of our contentment and satisfaction through life.
- If this line comes from the Luna (the soft, fleshy circle just above your wrist, under your pinky), it means success depends on public recognition.
- If it comes from Venus (the soft, fleshy circle just above your wrist, under your thumb), it means success is dependent on backing from the family.
- If it comes from the life line, it means you need backing from mentors and others with influence and power. At the same time, all success is brought through their own achievements and hard work.
- If it comes from lower Mars (just above the curve between your thumb and index finger), success and satisfaction comes later in life after much hard work.
- If it's from the fate line, success and satisfaction comes from the satisfaction with ones duties.
- If there's no line, it shows you have difficulty appreciating or receiving your success and satisfaction in life.
- If the line of satisfaction is a cluster, it indicates you have multiple successes. You enjoy a variety of talents simultaneously.
