3 orange Child lines -Mercury Crease


Right Palm
Hand of Major Use

"Ring of Apollo = Role Model"

Dear Readers ~
Let’s begin with examining shape and characteristics of palms : True to Aries Sun sign , this client’s wide busily-lined palms and relatively shorter finger length reveal he is the “ Fire Social” type. Fire people get along at work and play because of flexible, creative nature. Love of beauty, music and the arts often lead to an artistic career or being a benefactor of the arts. Wry sense of humor and strong work ethics are represented respectively by pronounced ‘loop dermals’ positioned between Mercury and Apollo mount; then between Apollo and Saturn mount. Fingertips are conic which portrays artistic ability and direction; and Mercury finger is exceptionally long. Mercury finger symbolizes one’s sense of humor, sexuality, and communication skills; so length of Mercury suggests superior talents of expression. Mercury fingertip is well-fleshed to indicate one who must seek pure truth in life. Fingers are positioned widely-spread which signals open-mindedness. Thumb is well-fleshed with the tip representing ego; and mid-segment representing powers of logic. Note the four lines (or rings) on mid-segment of both thumbs: in Vedic palmistry this is a highly fortunate sign of one who will attain riches and power.
Let’s look at right palm lines and markings (Chiromancy): hand of major use which reveals objective nature and outward response toward environment and society’s rules.
*Life line (brown line begins between thumb and Jupiter finger and travels around Venus mount into palm base. Reveals physical vitality one can expect throughout one’s lifetime; moves/changes of lifestyle; interference from friends and relatives) begins firmly attached to Head line revealing strong family ties until early twenties. ‘Squares of protection’ embed Venus mount; and ‘cross marks’ suggest well-meaning interference from relatives and friends causes feelings of confinement. ‘Cross marks’ positioned high on Life line outer edge reveal several moves/changes of lifestyle from early through mid-twenties. I see an additional move/change of life style in client’s late twenties. After then I see at least three upward ‘lines of effort’ (tiny brown lines attached less than midway down to outer edge of Life line) which indicate successful projects from late twenties through early thirties. I see interference from a close relative at this time (brown ‘x’ mark positioned midway down and inside Life line). Near the completion of the last project I see a ‘chaining’ effect in Life line quality, which may indicate mineral deficiency – (‘chaining’ of Life line reveals interruption of normal flow of physical energies). Client will need to pay attention to diet and health regimes during this stage of life. Fate line (white centered lines) joins Life line at age thirty-five – which assists and strengthens qualities of Life line and physical well-being. I see interference from a ‘frenemy’ or business associate when client is age forty (brown ‘x’ mark positioned by the word ‘Venus’ on said mount). I see a large project taking shape in client’s mid-forties that lasts around five years – note ‘triangle’ shape embedded more than halfway down outer edge of Life line. ‘Squares of protection’ and Mars Sister Lines crowd Venus mount during this life stage – good stuff for physical well-being. There is a small ‘island’ embedded low in Life line in client’s early to mid-sixties which shows a year of possibly the same physical ailments from his thirties. I see another big move/change of lifestyle in client’s early seventies.
*Head line (blue line begins between thumb and Jupiter finger then travels toward palm outer edge. Reveals mental strength and direction – thus ability to succeed) begins showing loyalty toward family, deep intense mentality and focus. Length of Head line is incredibly long to the point I must determine it to be a Sydney line. Sydney line reveals strong mentality – but possible complications in childhood that set one apart from the crowd. Note how length of Head line nearly ‘cuts off’ the Luna mount quadrant of palm – the area of dreams and feelings. With this in mind the Sydney line shows a definite division of sentiment from everyday thinking – or a more logical approach to life’s matters. Once the bearer of a Sydney line gets past the perils of childhood – they excel far beyond what others deem normal and acceptable standards.
*Heart line (long red horizontal line begins at palm outer edge and travels toward Mount of Jupiter. Reveals one’s capacity for loving) begins heavily ‘feathered’ – sign of mercurial emotions in early youth. An ‘island’ embedded in line shows distress over a love relationship in client’s early twenties. A downward ‘line of disappointment’ shows more distress over a love relationship in client’s mid-twenties. Heart line doubles after then, with a ‘sister line’ from mid-twenties to age thirty – reveals stronger emotional make-up. A small ‘cross’ mark embedded in Heart line suggests a heart issue in client’s mid-thirties. A similar issue is reflected in his Life line simultaneously. Heart line continues smoothly afterwards, and lands on outer Jupiter mount to represent client’s aspirations for a suitable life mate. This client needs a mate who is his equal - financially, mentally and physically.
*Apollo line (violet vertical lines running toward Apollo mount. The Apollo line is considered an accessory line, as not all possess one). Client possesses many lines which indicate tendency to divide energies by getting involved in too much at once. Success comes through personal effort by age thirty-five (note triangle positioned atop Head line with Apollo line intersecting). At forty client will rely on an outsider but must be careful; and at fifty will rely on advice from a family member. Client’s achievement is reflected by the ‘trident’ mark positioned on Apollo mount – sign of fame and fortune - a celebrity or one widely recognized and liked by the public. Presence of a ring of Apollo (ring-like line on Apollo mount) symbolizes client’s inspirational talents.
*Mystic Cross (large yellow ‘x’ connecting Heart line to Head line underneath middle finger mount) represents psychic talent and is a rare marking.
*Fate line (white vertical lines begin at palm base and run up toward Saturn mount. Reveal life efforts and direction; plus satisfaction or dissatisfaction about personal financial and social standing in life). The Fate line is most mutable of all palm lines – it fades when one is dissatisfied; and returns or grows when one feels successful. Client’s Fate line begins showing strong family influences. Creative fervor takes hold in mid-teens (note outer Fate line beginning in Luna mount); and this configuration also indicates stronger ability for working with outsiders. Fate line continues unbroken and deep to show dependability and devotion to career well past client’s sixties. I see a partnership line after age fifty (can also mean another marriage).
*Girdle of Venus (pink cradle-like line runs high between Apollo and Jupiter mounts) is also another accessory line that reveals intense creative energy and ingenuity.
*Ring of Jupiter (also called ‘ring of Solomon’) symbolizes unusual wisdom, intuitive powers and empathy toward others.
*Mercury/Health lines (dark green verticals positioned at palm center and fanned out toward palm outer edge) are frayed which shows stress and digestive issues.
*Luna mount contains several deep lines of mental travel (unusual imagination) and an arched (violet) line of intuition.

Left Palm
Silent Hand

Let’s look at left palm lines and markings: Client’s silent hand which reveals subjective nature and inner dreamy response toward his environment and society’s rules.
*Life line (in silent hand, Life line reflects emotional rather than physical status) shows feelings of confinement in mid to late teens (square embedded after beginning of Life line). I see three changes of life style from early twenties through mid-twenties. I see another change of life style near age thirty and a successful personal project – despite an obstacle - in early to mid-thirties. In early to mid-forties Life line overlaps and melds with Fate line. This shows increased emotional fortitude and flexibility. It also shows a strong belief system or religion. I see a really big change of life style or new life direction in client’s mid-thirties! Near age fifty, small downward lines reveal desire for traveling. Age sixty brings another lifestyle change; also interference from distant relatives in client’s sixties.
*Head line is a Sydney configuration and is perfect except for an ‘island’ that represents division of focus – headaches and indecision - in client’s mid to late twenties. Remainder of line is exceptional; and slight upward ending of line reveals a more jovial older age.
*Heart line begins heavily feathered which reveals ups and downs of developing youthful emotions. I see emotional turmoil regarding loved ones in early, mid and late twenties. The remainder of Heart line smoothes; and then ends in a ‘fork’ pattern which shows desire for security in love relationships.
*Empathy lines – silent palm reveals multiple ‘empathy lines’ (bright green verticals on Mercury mount) – meaning client possesses natural desire for healing, aiding, assisting humanity.
*Apollo line show excellent talent for working well with others, developed in early to mid-twenties. However there is tendency for trusting enemies (note crossed Apollo lines) on two occasions after age fifty. People look up to client (ring of Apollo) because he serves as a model or brand which they desire.
*Fate line reveals creative roots and flexibility from early youth. Client embraces desire to branch out into the wilderness of the unknown. Fresh faces and new situations are welcome. Age thirty-five becomes a turning point toward more highly-evolved ingenuity. Age forty provides even stronger focus. Fifty and beyond proves great in that client feels personally successful – note ‘trident’ marking on Saturn mount. A Saturn trident is the sign of a philosopher – as well as financial security in old age.
*Girdle of Venus –is an almost perfect girdle which signifies bridled or focused passion for the people and projects client favors.
*Ring of Jupiter - this ring is almost perfect and is the sign of a natural psychic or highly evolved mind.
*Mercury/Health lines – unfortunately are frayed which means client is hard-wired for stress and has difficulty just letting things go. He is always going to need an outlet like exercise or a hobby that will take his mind off business.
*Luna Mount – I see a very deep ‘line of Intuition’ cutting through Luna mount, along with some ‘mental travel lines’ above. The ‘star mark’ on outer edge of Luna shows tendency for becoming sea sick while traveling.
Let’s summarize and answer client’s question: “What is in store for my career?” My Answer ~ I see three upward ‘lines of effort’ (tiny brown lines attached less than midway down to outer edge of Life line in right palm) that indicate successful projects from your late twenties through early thirties. Watch out for interference from a business associate when you are age forty (brown ‘x’ mark positioned by word Venus on said mount, right palm). I see a large project taking shape when you are in mid-forties that lasts around five years – note ‘triangle’ shape embedded more than halfway down outer edge of Life line. You exert strong personal effort and succeed despite two opposing forces. Your left palm Apollo line shows you trust an enemy in two situations after age fifty. Everybody has layers and some people you deal with are quite clever and practiced at disguise. Always beware. Regarding occupation: I see you leading others to see the light – you being in charge of how others ultimately think and behave. Your strong intelligence and intuition allows you to know what others are feeling. With your flexibility and intelligence you could be anything from a priest to a spy! ‘Trident’ marking on right palm Apollo mount reveals the public loves your brand. In conclusion, the ‘trident’ on left palm Saturn Mount reveals supreme inner satisfaction with your social, financial and emotional life status.

”Hopeful ” I have had much difficulty in my life---especially since 2007. I’ve experienced being laid off; devastating illness; and loss of love relationship of my life. I am glad to say against all odds my health is much better and I am starting a new career path soon. As for love, well I met someone and am trying not to fall in love with her (age diff). Can you tell me what you see? I am beginning to feel that things are starting to settle down and perhaps there will be a lessening in the obstacles and bad surprises in my life.
Dear Hopeful ~
Upon examining your palm, I see a break in your Head line from @ age 35-to 42. Your Life line is a yellow-ish (sign of illness) instead of pink tone during the same period. To boot, you possess a broken “ring of Saturn” on both hands which tends to indicate depression. Things have been tough; but your Fate line will soon join your Life line lending strength and support to your life endeavors. You are not out of the woods quite yet; so concentrate on taking it slow and easy. Love yourself before delving into a new relationship -- YOUR priorities are number one now.

“Extra little finger segment”
Dear MTrue, I have 4 segmental lines on the little finger of my right hand, where as most people have only 3. Can you please explain the significance if any -- Thanking you, Buddy.
Dear Buddy ~
It all depends which of your finger phalanges appear divided by the additional line.
A). If it’s your lower segment that appears divided: Your need to communicate and express feelings to the outside world has been repressed. So you tend to keep inner feelings to yourself.
B). If it’s your middle segment that appears divided: This affects your views on marriage. You tend to be more accepting of other’s social or financial status when it comes to choosing a mate.
C). If it’s your finger tip segment that appears divided: Pure truth is not as important to you as the resulting end of situations. You practice a far less strict ‘live and let live’ attitude -- rather than focusing on exposing unfair situations.

A New Mark in My Palm”
Just recently, I’ve developed an “x” or cross marking in between my Life and Fate lines, in the bottom half of my palm. I’m concerned about what this means . . .
Dear New Mark ~
The particular marking you’re describing sounds like the “Saint Joseph’s Cross” – a benevolent marking that indicates willingness to travel long distances to assist others. Paramedics, missionaries, as well as military personnel often possess this noble marking. BTW, new markings or palmar changes easily occur every six months in one's life; due to both the forces of inner development and outside influences.

Absence of Fingerprints

Question:Dear MTrue ~
I can't see any fingerprints on my fingertips. Do you know anything about this or have you seen this in anyone else's hands? Elsa
Answer:Dear Elsa ~ No, personally I have not seen this in reading my many clients palms - but from what I've read, you possess a rare condition called Adermatoglyphia. Smithsonian has a good article about your condition:

Question: Dear MTrue ~ I am wondering if my career will finally take hold here in Pakistan or will I have to travel elsewhere for maximum success in life? ~ S.A.
A: Dear S.A. ~ your Life line reveals tremendous effort (tiny upward lines) and several moves/changes of life style in youth and early twenties. At age thirty I see a significant move -- and after then destiny will have many travels in store. So my answer to you is that you are a go-getter and success will take off in Pakistan; but you will be doing much travel for your career throughout your life time. The "trident" ending of your Fate line (white vertical) on Saturn mount reveals philosophical nature with good financial fortune and comfort in your old age. Happy Trails to you!
Note illustration below:

Right Palm
Rajah Loop, Family help, Apollo Mount Trident

Question: Dear MTrue ~ I am 31 years of age, male, right handed. Can you please check my right palm to determine if I achieve success in my career? I have nothing good happening in my career financially presently.~ HS
Answer: Dear HS ~ I see you possess a Rajah Loop (white loop dermal located between pointer and middle finger mounts) - which is a sign of royal bearing and superior leadership skills. You also possess an Apollo trident (purple trident marking on Apollo mount) - sign of public recognition for outstanding efforts. An inner Fate line(white vertical lines) reveals soon you will be receiving assistance from a family member - this person will give you the advice, backing and confidence you require for success. Accept their offer graciously!

Modified Simian Configuration
Heart and Head line combined

Question: Dear MTrue ~ I have a deep passion for Palmistry and Numerology. Do you see potential of Spiritual advancement for me in this Life. I am Age 43, female and possess all 'whorl' patterns on fingertips, except little fingers which are peacock whorls.
Answer: Heart line(red) joins with Head line(blue) to form a modified Simian configuration. The bearer of true Simian configuration is either a perfect sinner or saint; as the Simian is known for going to extremes. Your doubled Girdle of Venus(pink lines above Heart line) reveal passion and fervor for people and activities you favor. Centered solid Fate line (white vertical) shows focus and devotion to life purpose. Ring of Jupiter (purple ring on pointer finger mount) reveals knowledge of and empathy for other's unspoken needs. Medical Stigmata (short bright green lines on little finger mount)indicate desire for healing. Triad dermal positioned on Luna mount reveals placing others needs above ones own. Whorl patterns on finger tips reveal masterful qualities; purity and strength of character. You also possess St Joseph's crosses (blue crosses joining Fate with Life line), which reveal one who travels long distances in order to assist others. So yes, I'd say you possess a spiritual hand and also will continue to develop in that direction in the future.

Long Head line
Sydney Line

Question: Is this a modified Simian (combo of Head and Heart lines) or a Sydney Configuration?

Answer:At first I thought this was a Modified Simian -- but there's too much of a Heart line (even thought it's a Heart line with no beginning). The Head line cuts off the Luna Quadrant which is typical of the Sydney line. For those who are just learning about their palms, the Sydney line is a very long Head line. Michael Douglas the famous actor possesses a Sydney line. He had learning difficulties as a child but once he caught up - boy did he excel!!
