The Via Lascivia in the Hand

The Via Lascivia – Pathways of Exploration, Excitement and Escapism

by Kay Packard

When the Mercury Line falls toward the outer edge of the hand (see blue arrows in Fig. 1 and 2 below), creating an arc into the Moon zone, you’ll find that curiosity, wonderment and exploration for stimulation are an essential component in the owner’s life. This configuration is called the Via Lascivia.

About forty-percent of the hands I see have this pattern in one or both hands. Famous hand analyst William Benham, author of The Laws of Scientific Hand-Reading printed in 1900 and revised in 1946 said it [Via Lascivia] was seldom seen. Life styles have certainly changed in the past 100 years therefore, this is why I believe it is more frequently visible.

The look of the line can show up in a several different variations. Two examples are shown below.

Via Lascivia

According to Benham, the configuration seen more commonly was a vertical (not arcing) short sister line beside the Mercury Line, ending closer to the top of the Moon zone. Owners were found to have a “superabundance of vitality and good health, and would work off a good part of it in lascivious practices.” In other words the owners were witnessed to having healthy outlets for their lewd and erotic impulses.

The Standard Via Lascivia is the Mercury sister line that arcs around to the edge of the palm (see blue arrows in Fig. 1 and 2) and indicates curiosity that ‘falls’ into the lower world of the palm, specifically into the zone of imagination, dreams and core identity.

I wonder what the criteria were 116 years ago for defining lewd and erotic behaviors. I would imagine a typical Hollywood movie, a series on HBO or certain TV commercials would fall into this category, these days. Can you imagine how unacceptable it would be by society then to witness what we see today – at a touch of the screen?

Needless to say, the Via Lascivia is more commonly found in the palm today, because of the cultural acceptance of seeking wider and more interesting thoughts, activities and sensations. The basis of the configuration is still quite relevant with updated narratives.

I’ve seen the Via Lascivia in hands ranging from ages 7 to 70-years. As with all the markings in the hands, there are positive and negative possibilities. This applies to the Via Lascivia, too.

A 7-year old with a Via Lascivia, as an example, may be curious about new and unusual insects. He or she may collect spiders, dead or alive, and study them. The spiders symbolize a form of wonderment, excitement and escapism. The young one escapes into the unknown and unusual with a positive force for growth.

A 17-year old with the same line formation will most likely be found exploring his or her new life in unusual ways. Teens typically seek new pathways; some healthy and some unhealthy. He or she may dissect the frog in science class and continue the project at home with fish, rats or rabbits – all in the name of deep examination into the unfamiliar. When adding the need to belong to a group, the teen might find him or herself exploring pills, kissing and sex. Finding healthy outlets for the stimulated system is crucial to prevent allure turning into addiction and ending up on the wrong side of the law.

A 57-year old with a Via Lascivia would be wise to seek out the interesting by investigating new and thrilling things to do after retirement, otherwise she may fall prey to the rush of the unlawful like Thelma when she robbed the store while Louise waited in the car. (Watch Thelma rob the store in this short video clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JDyXQvCsOM).

Hanging with Hades in the underworld can become attractive. This place includes gangs (darker groups) and drugs. The underworld is a place where some people, at different phases in life, can become attached to these forms of escape. Isolation and invisibility can imprison the owner thus leading to loneliness and depression.

The marking in itself does not indicate addiction or depression. Like a flower, it must be appropriately watered to prevent it from wilting. So too, an individual must develop and maintain techniques to nurture his or herself to stay on the positive side.

Below are examples showing how the behaviors can show up in either the positive or negative form.

Via Lascivia positive and negative

Deeper personal characteristics are revealed when markings are blended together. For example a well-marked Via Lascivia on a hand with a full Venus Mount will belong to someone who is pleasure loving, with a highly charged libido, in pursuit of physical stimulation and perhaps regardless of the cost. An eye-catching Via Lascivia on a Air shaped hand, with a shoebox-effect, is likely to be found restless, obsessed and dedicated to collecting, dissecting and distributing information. I wouldn’t be surprised to find this combination in the hand of a scientist or philosopher.

Via Lascivia Key Words: Exploration, wonderment, curiosity, stimulation, excitement, thrill seeking, idealism, appetites, over-indulgence, temptations, escapism

Via Lascivia Positive: My stimulated imagination has freedom to explore and I consider the consequences in how far I soar.

Via Lascivia Negative: I refuse my Inner Voice and hear the call of my craving as I voyage into darker shadows of the underworld.

Line of Intuition

The shape of the Mercury Line reveals the nature of a person’s capacity and style for perceiving. Straight Mercury Lines belong to people who are curious and have keen insights. Curving Mercury Lines, as in Figure 1 below, belong to individuals who are in constant contact, consciously or unconsciously, with the celestial, attuned to messages from the Divine. Because this line bows around the Moon mound, you’ll find someone with a natural capacity for diving into crisis of meaning and somehow finding words to make sense of it. On their advanced path, they understand the meaning of life and construct careers as transformational coaches, life purpose consultants, spiritual advisors, life strategists, counselors and ministers.

The owner of a Mercury Line that arcs around the Moon is curious about and considers elements related to dreams, spirituality, the subliminal, unmet emotional needs, and the reality of beliefs. People with Mercury Lines resembling the Figure included in this article have most likely found themselves asking themselves, “What’s the point of living?” and/or “Why are we here?” during times of alienation, stagnation and feeling trapped in the illusion of separation from the self. While the potential of constant contact with the Divine is very high, equally and opposite is the possibility of not trusting what’s ‘coming in’ and remaining focused entirely on logic instead.

If you have this deeply curving Mercury Line, you most likely understand the feeling of disillusionment and disappointment with life. A sense of despair has led you to ask, “Why?” which is a crucial step toward listening inward for answers. As you stop struggling with the sense of desolation, let go of reason, and accept that you just don’t know why, you find that you surrender to higher intelligence, which then begins to operate through you. You can then allow and trust this special internal mechanism within you that is constantly attuned for deep inner awareness.

After teaching about of this type of Mercury Line in my certification program, one student with this configuration confirmed the description saying,

“I worked 14 years in a job where I had little to zero contact with other people. I worked on secret projects and could never talk about my work. I got sick a lot with migraine headaches, felt alone and numbed out. I finally quit that job because I realized life should not be just making money and paying bills. My heart was longing for freedom, freedom for creative expression. I craved deep, meaningful connections with people instead of just working on computers and projects in isolation.”

She has since developed her skills by becoming a Reiki Master /Healer, ThetaHealing® Practitioner, an influential speaker, and intuitive Scientific Hand Analyst and is now working as an inspirational counselor, interpreting the messages marked in the hands to the owners so that they can know why they are here and how to live with meaning in their lives.

After contemplating the interpretation of the Line of Intuition on her hand, another certified hand analyst told me:

“Yes, I do relate to the natural capacity for understanding the meaning in the life crisis -in my own and in other’s, and I have a near compulsion to explain it to a person who’s in the middle of a crisis. I can make sense of things (from an interior perspective), and when a person is asking for my input and is ready to receive it, I can help them make sense of their experiences. Explaining to someone who isn’t ready to hear it leaves me feeling unseen and misunderstood, and is probably boring or annoying for them. I find that my audience is not always interested, especially not at work so it is a challenge to moderate my natural intuitive communications to fit into the analytical workplace style. I’ve really developed a good practice and the experience to know and trust what’s coming in most of the time, and I can vouch for the experience of constant contact, anytime I put my attention on it, its there. But being immersed in the logic of my technology company workplace is like that unsettled, off balance feeling when you don’t trust your own gut. In the office there are lots of interruptions and I’m surrounded by people all the time. It’s a hectic place and instead of listening to and trusting my intuition, I’m usually just reacting to my environment. With the primary focus on logic for the job it’s hard to go deep and open up to listen and receive.”

Medical Intuitive Caroline Myss exemplifies what this marking is about as a translator of meaning through her lectures about the invisible energy system running through our bodies called the chakras. In her book Anatomy of the Spirit she interprets the symbols of the soul in easy to understand lessons. She has become very well known through helping people learn the language of the human energy system so that they can better understand themselves as a way through spiritual challenges. Her life revolves around deciphering meaning in everything around her. In her case she intuits illness as it relates to energetic power leaks within a person. Does she have this line on either of her hands, or both? I don’t know but I’d like to find out.

Intuition is a skill anyone can develop, and would benefit by doing so. If you don’t have this line in your hand it doesn’t mean that you’re not intuitive or cannot be intuitive. By having this Line of Clairvoyance there is a higher probability, on the path to mastery, that the challenges will be quite evident. What I mean by this is that reliance on logic and ignoring the hunches you’re getting will block development. I think of this simply as a road sign indicator letting you know you’re off track and ‘correction’ is needed. Will you trust what you are sensing from within?

Internal oppositions are normal. When they are recognized and brought together you’ll have the perfect ingredients for fuller expression of this gift of highly attuned perception.

Mantra: As I follow and trust myself through my own crisis of meaning I am able to skillfully support others through exploration of the deeper parts of themselves.

Interview with Jennifer Hirsch

Jennifer HirschIt is truly an honor to bring to you, Jennifer Hirsch, the Founder of the Chirology Centre for the Study of Hand Reading in South Africa. She lives in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Jennifer, when and how did you start reading hands?

I began in 1991 when I had a busy massage therapy practice and was growing increasingly aware that I’d not be able to stand the pace of so many massages for too many more years. Besides, I was getting bored and felt thirsty to study.

Since young, wherever I was, people wanted to talk to me, it’s the classic ‘therapist written on the forehead’ scenario. Most of my clients would lie on the plinth and want to talk about their life challenges and I was finding it difficult to insist that they lie quietly to receive the healing. I felt the need to separate the body work from the dialogue. This combined with my teenage dream of being a psychologist had me ‘scanning’ for what to study.

I considered all the “ologies” and nearly chose graphology. But then I had a vision of myself as an elder, sitting in an armchair and holding someone’s hands in mine. It came to me in a flash, and I excitedly booked an appointment with Brian Friend, one of the only 2 palmists in Johannesburg at that time (the other was Chand Singh, both have since passed). My first lessons in classical palmistry were in January 1991 with Brian just before he died.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

I’d say my areas of specialization are the glyphs, and counseling. I’m especially interested in listening. How to really listen, how to authentically lend my presence, so to speak.

In terms of application, I don’t specialize in anything specifically, but the majority of people who come are looking for their life-purpose. I do a lot of focusing on helping people to craft their lives, so as to align with their joy.

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

The sense of awe and humility I experience when holding a person’s hands and looking into their eyes. I feel immensely honored, blessed. The trust invested in me. The intimacy. The sense of transcending space/time, and being ‘on purpose’ during readings. The alchemical results, reflected back in the many testimonials I’ve received over the years, from people who’ve made optimal choices based on the guidance I’ve suggested during their reading.

Please define the term ‘chirology’

The term is from the Greek word kheri, meaning hand, and logos, or knowledge. Knowledge of the hands. Chirology is the rich and diverse study of our hands and their correspondences to our physical, emotional, vocational, intellectual and spiritual selves. It’s an umbrella term, encompasses everything to do with hands. Chirology is an evolved form of Palmistry, and an authentic counseling therapy.

Do you refer to life lesson? If so, has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

With the 5 element system of interpretation which I use, (unlike with Richard’s system) ‘life lesson’ isn’t specifically defined, but many life lessons weave through the readings.

My biggest life lesson is low self-esteem, which visits often. I doubt myself and my worth. I see this not good enough theme in many hands, along with issues of abandonment, abuse, guilt, trust, lack of joie de vivre, abuse, responsibility, and so on.

The extent to which I understand these challenges in myself helps determine how much I can assist others’ understanding of themselves.

Jennifer’s fingerprint patterns:

Loop Loop Loop Loop Loop
Loop Loop Loop Peacock’s eye Loop

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

I learned a tough lesson when I’d just begun offering readings many years ago. A client arrived, a 54 year old Jewish woman, very kindly and motherly appearance. As I took her hand in mine, I said “You do everything for your children.” Instantly her body stiffened, she pulled her hands back and said “I don’t have any children.” Needless to say no matter how hard I tried, it proved impossible to gain any rapport with her after this. I’d tapped into her deepest wound, and made a grave error in assessment.

Moral of the story: Your opening lines need to be neutral, no room for error or tactlessness. It’s vital to begin readings with words of kindness, support, anything that establishes rapport.

What advice would you give to students of Hand Analysis?

Allow for silence. This has been challenging for me, i.e. the feeling I have to show up, be on form, and keep talking. Pauses allow for what is most alive in the person to arise. It’s best for them if we readers let them guide us. This guidance from them is accessed through our listening. I also like to ‘go where the pain is’, i.e. pay most attention to what they present as being their biggest challenge.

Don’t be in a hurry. Hand analysis is learned over many years, by osmosis and by incremental bits of application.

Many students get stuck in the all theory no practice paradigm. They struggle to feel they know enough. This is a pitfall. We are ‘qualified’ by virtue of coming from the heart. People need to be heard, not ‘accurately told’ about themselves.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions such as “What brings you?”. Occasionally you’ll have a reply like “Well you tell me!”, but mostly people will open up very readily.

Last not least: Trust your intuition. Often the hardest of all.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months? 

I’ll be continuing with hosting monthly topic workshops. The next one is “Signs in Hands”, a look at some of the traditionally accurate markers.

I’m writing another book, the concept is a ‘Chirology in 365 days” page-a-day lesson.

I’m also changing my current 9 lesson training course to a one year course, so re-formatting the structure of the lessons.

I’m also working on marketing my home study and Skype consultation services outside of South Africa.

You have written and published God Given Glyphs and I know this was a colossal undertaking. Congratulations! What have you found readers are benefiting from most in your book?

Thanks Kay! I’ve had fantastic feedback. People comment on how valuable and accurate a resource the enlarged fingerprint illustrations are, as well as the interpretations being accurate. They like how I interpret each position of each possible variation of glyph placement individually.

Many have appreciated the chapters on how to effectively and ethically counsel with hand reading.

Also, there’s very little published material on the 5 element system of interpretation, so for anyone interested in the system, this is a good point to start.

What is the URL to purchase your book to download?

http://godgivenglyphs.com/shop/

I believe you have done one or two Vipassanas. Is that correct? Do you see a beneficial correlation between meditation and hand reading? If so what have you found beneficial in meditation for your Chirology practice?

Yes, two Vipassanas so far. Naturally my meditation helps me to center and still myself. But also, the 5 element system of hand analysis evolved from aspects of esoteric Buddhism, where emphasis is placed upon loving kindness and compassion for our fellow man, and on the philosophy of being of service.

Fundamental Marketing Points for Your Heart-Centered Business

It’s no secret that I love certifying students in the art and science of hand analysis!

My sixth year teaching the hand analysis certification program is quickly coming to completion. By September 6th the world will have six new certified hand analysts reaching around the globe from Australia to Switzerland and Germany, and from sea to sea in the United States.

An applauded benefit for this year’s certification students was the 10 hours chock-full of business development and crucial marketing worksheets for immediate professional success.
 
One student said:
 
“What I found most beneficial was that doing the exercises “forced” me to really clarify the traits that I bring into the business and what my values are and how I would like them to show up in my marketing materials.  Before, I had some general and vague ideas but the class exercises really got me to organize my thinking.” – Marcella Theeman, 2016 Certified Hand Analyst 

Inspiring people to use the personalized road map inscribed in their hands to live a purposeful life is truly gratifying. It’s even better the longer we maintain stamina, commitment and enthusiasm. However, burn out is practically guaranteed without proven strategies to market our businesses as effectively as possible.

I created the Marketing and Business Breakthrough training module through years of growth, observation, lessons learned and with the help of my marketing coach. It’s a fact – marketing and business strategies are crucial to finding lasting joy in operating a heart-centered business.

I want to make it as quick and simple as possible for you while staying aligned with your authentic self!

YOUR business and YOUR marketing will not be effective if it’s based on any cookie cutter formula.

Fundamental marketing mastery must be based on YOUR…
 
– Special interest and focus on what matters most
– Personal values (as Marcella said)
– Vision and what you stand for no matter what
– Signature and influencing branding archetypes 
– Unique gifts and talents
– Ideal clients and how you can best serve them

This topic can be overwhelming for anyone especially highly creative healers so I bring forward proven strategies step-by-step so that you can immediately apply them as you grow your business.

Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision,” said Peter Drucker.

This Level 3 Certification Program aims for excellence.  We’ll cover nearly 200 different markings in the hands so you are guaranteed to increase your database and skillfully apply what you learn each week. Additional bonus markings always find a way of sneaking into our live lessons, too.

While seats last, students already certified in hand analysis by any qualified teacher are welcome to apply as a refresher and to stay tuned in each week at 1/3 tuition. International students are welcome with two options for joining LIVE depending on your time zone.

If you want to know more please join me for either a 60 minute group information webinar on Wednesday, August 31st from 4:00 – 5:00pmPT or a 15 minute private discovery session.

Use the Contact Us form with your request and I’ll respond with the next step for you to get all of your questions answered.

Interview with Lorraine Anne Costello

Lorraine Anne CostelloIt is an honor and a privilege to bring to you this interview with Lorraine Anne Costello. She is an AAHA Certified Hand Analyst and lives in San Diego, California. 

When and how did you start reading hands?

I first learned about gift markings in 2010, through some very clever seminar marketing. I came away from that seminar with a basic concept of fingerprints and an in-depth understanding of gift markings. Eager to test my newfound knowledge, I grabbed my bestie’s hand and only recognized one fingerprint (he has 9 composite whorls). I quickly signed up for a class in fingerprints, then continued formal hand analysis classes in 2011.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

Whether by intent or just opportunity, I tend to work with entrepreneurs. I find that when a business owner understands their heart lines and life school, they have great insight into their leadership style.

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

The palms truly reveal consistent currents of consciousness. I love discovering patterns of being that were previously hidden just out of sight. There is great power in understanding those patterns then consciously choosing to embrace, accept, then incorporate or change. In my personal journey of understanding my own hands, I found that many life events took on a whole other level of meaning by seeing those situations through the wisdom of hand analysis.

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading? If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

My life lesson is about finding the right balance of responsibility. I have an irresistible tendency to take on too much. Knowing this, I set up sessions so that the responsibility is shared. I let clients know that it is not possible to cover the entire hand in one session. I tell the client that this time is theirs and to ask lots of questions which will direct me deeper into the interpretations that are of particular interest to them.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?

My life purpose is passion. That translates into being an enthusiastic cheerleader for the person that I am reading, for their questions and their understandings. It is tempting to want others to be as passionate about hand analysis as I am, but that would be taking responsibility for their experience and falling hopelessly into my life lesson. Instead, I stay clear of those who are just curious about hand analysis and gravitate to others who have a passion for insight and personal growth.

Do you have a fee set for your readings?

Many readings are tied into another service (branding and small business leadership consulting). If someone just wants to have their hands read, my fee is $125 an hour.

If yes, how did you ‘know’ it was time to set a fee a fee?

Once I was certified and no longer looking for volunteers to practice, I treated the training with the same respect that I have for any other professional license. I was already seeing clients through my spiritual counseling license and chose to keep the rate for my time the same for hand analysis.

Did you experience internal obstacles about charging for a HA session with you? If so, how did you overcome that obstacle?

Yes! I struggled with how to shift existing relationships with people who followed me during the 3+ years of study, people who generously let me look for markings and then shared their unique experience of the marking. I truly felt that I wouldn’t have the depth of understanding without their support. For those whose hands I printed during my studies, I created an audio recording of the interpretation and threading of the most prominent features in their hands. I thanked them for their participation in my education and offered a discount if they wanted to gift their friends or family a session. I am still working my way through all of the prints that were gifted to me. This process helps me feel complete with their generosity and effectively transitions our relationship from being student/volunteer to certified analyst/client.

Lorraine’s fingerprint patterns? 

 

Loop Arch Arch Entwined Loop Loop
Loop/Arch Entwined Radial Loop Arch Loop/Arch/Tented Arch Loop

 

Do you have a ‘bad’ experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

Yes! I made the mistake of reading someone who was just curious. I wanted them to come away with some insight and there was much to be shared in this person’s hand. But when someone who is curious about hand analysis, they want information and insight about the history, accuracy, and errors of hand analysis. They are not necessarily looking for information and insights about themselves. In that moment, I discovered the sweet spot of my target market.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?

While learning the database, be mindful of what is most thrilling for you in the process. There are so many aspects and applications of this practice, find the parts you love and begin there. Your enthusiasm will be contagious.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?

I am working on a class that correlates spiritual practices with hand analysis insights for deeper understanding and integration.

Thank you, Lorraine Anne Costello!

Interview with Michele Rae Lee

Please join me for this insightful interview with Certified and Professional Hand Analyst, Michele Rae Lee!

Michele, thank you for joining us today. I’m certain our audience is in for a huge treat as they hear about your journey into the sacred world of hand analysis.

When and how did you start reading hands?  

I think it was in 2007 when you and I met and you took a look at my fingerprints, which I thought was odd at first, however I went with it and I am glad I did because it changed my life forever.  I didn’t study until I signed up for AAHA, Level One and Two. Because there was just way too much information out there, I wanted to be trained by the highest level of teaching and curriculum.  I completed the Intensive in 2014. Then I completed the AAHA Level Three Certification Program in 2015.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?  

No, not really.  I just use my intuition and go from there.  I ask them what they would like.

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?  

Watching people step into their life purpose and grow successfully, by exalting their life lesson(s) after I read for them.  There have been so many and this makes what I do all worth it.  Another favorite is when I run into people and they recite what I shared with them, or they will tag me in a post, this makes me beam with pride for them.  Of course, I have never been wrong!!  lol, so far anyway!!

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, what did you learn from that experience?  

Yes, for each reading because my LL is trust. So, I have to be able to trust myself before I can proceed in decoding what I see in the hands. Also, sometimes I trust in holding back too much information so they have time to absorb the information I have given them.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?  

Well, I am on the Path of Service and it is a reader’s choice because I have eight whorls and two loops on my Mercury fingers so it is always a challenge to trust self first and then proceed with giving exactly what I am comfortable with. So I am in my happy spot.  We are always on a learning journey and I embrace if I do give too much of myself knowing it was supposed to happen.

Do you have a fee set for your readings?  

Yes, my set fee is $250.00 per hour.  I do not charge for family or friends.  I gift a lot, too.

How did you ‘know’ it was time to set a fee a fee?  

I just threw it out to the universe one day and posted it on my website.

Did you experience internal obstacles about charging for a HA session with you?

No, I did not.  When I started reading as a gift, after about the fifth one, I realized that I was so accurate; I went with my intuition and set my price.

Do you have a ‘bad’ experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?  

When I read for a guy and at the end he said, “Are you sure you can’t tell me about my future?”  He was very serious.  He had his fortune told to him at the mall as a small child and felt that everything he was told came true.  I explained that it could have been a projection by the reader and then I shared some more with him about what I could see.  I still coach him on Serving and Servitude though. After hundreds of hands, I can’t think of a bad experience.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?  

My best advice is to learn from The Masters of this Art And Science. I choose AAHA because like I said, there is a lot of muck out there.  If you want to be successful, you want accurate information to begin with.  Only follow a few Masters.  For example, I only follow five fellow Hand Analysts and only one of them who did not attend IIHA or AAHA.  However, the one does share the same curriculum.  Also, be careful on what books you purchase, again I only purchased books that Kay recommended to me.  It really helps to not get confused. My daughter gave me an awesome book that I glance at now, but did not while I was in school.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?  

I just moved back to the city after being very isolated and reading mostly remotly, so I am going to focus on Palm Parties.  In just two weeks of being back, I have been asked by three people to host a party.  One of them asked about doing a child’s party, so this should be interesting!!  This will be lots of fun for me and a good way to exercise my Hermit :).
