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

line-of-clairvoyance-featured-image-size

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

money-puzzle

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.

Your 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.

Mantra for a Weak Life Line

The Path by Packard Photography

Have you looked at your own or other people’s Life Lines to see what condition they are in? Maybe you have seen one or two broken or weaken Life Lines along with a few strong and robust ones, too.

It’s important to understand that every marking in the hand can have a positive and a negative possibility in it’s interpretation. Our minds do the same thing. We can think in a positive or negative way. It’s all about perspective.

All negative possibilities offer shadow wisdom. Shadows are created by light. We grow stronger as we open to our weaknesses and shine the light of awareness on them. If you decide to, you can learn to use your weaknesses, bring them to the light, and bloom into your most amazing life.

In my book, Your Life Is In Your Hands, you’ll find a “mantra” associated with most of the markings described in the book. I use the word “mantra” to imply the integration of the positive and negative interpretations of these markings into powerful affirmations. These mantras are designed and intended to uplift you into realizing your highest potential.

Weak (short, frayed, scattered, or broken) Life Lines Key Words: Restlessness, up rootedness, insistence, burnout

Weak Life Line Positive: I’m on heightened alert, attentive to getting many things accomplished, with opportunities to renew and rebuild

Weak Life Line Negative: I’m susceptible to burn out when I do too much (too much is defined by you, not the world); feeling out of balance and depleted.

Mantra: With ease, I equalize work, play and rest. I breathe in the nature of life.

You may want to write this mantra on a sticky-note and post it where you’ll see it frequently. It could transform your world!

What Broken Life Lines Represent

Peaceful Sunset

A broken Life Line can indicate a very difficult circumstance usually involving a serious physical situation. Examples clients have told me about include an injury such as a head trauma, a life-changing event such as divorce, moving to another state, unexpectedly changing colleges, abruptly ending a sports career because of knee surgery, or death in the family. Events associated with a broken Life Line can be seen in a positive or negative way, but either way a broken Life Line probably represents a needed wake-up call. For example, one woman with a break in her Life Line had very destructive behaviors, such that her husband divorced her and took custody of their children. She saw the separation in a negative way, but the divorce helped her to realize that she would benefit by making positive changes for healthier behaviors. This woman suffered the physical change of the unwanted divorce at the age of the break on her Life Line.

In my observations and in the life histories of my clients, issues of physical security correlate to Life Lines at the approximate ages shown in the Figure below.

Life Line Time Line AAHA

Approximate time line on the Life Line (above)

Important note: The hand analysis I practice is not predictive. If you see a broken Life Line do not assume any of the above examples my clients have told me about will actually occur in someone else’s life in the future based on this approximate time line. Why? Because a break will represent something different in every person’s life, and life circumstances and lines in the hand can change. Making a prediction about the future is simply inappropriate.  It is said, ‘Only Heaven knows.”

Figure below shows the hand of a man who told me of a life-threatening event that occurred to him when he was a child. Notice the break in his Life Line between the age of five and ten.

Broken Life Line AAHA

At age 6 he was thrown into a river along with his brother who was 8. At 6 he was terrified as he was thrashed along the current until he reached the edge of the river. He hid under the brush to hide from the older brothers who had chucked him into the river because they were watching for him along the riverbank.

Today this man is a great swimmer. In his adult life he has played key roles in planning for and monitoring the safety of people at large events, as well as providing security for his own children. His broken Life Line, even between age 5-10 on the time line, reveals his continual need for safety and security.

A short or weak Life Line represents a shorter than average anchor line to the earth. When the tether to the earth is weak, there is an inclination to “hover above” the world, or to feel lost at sea. Oftentimes there was a requirement early in life to take on so much responsibility that time for play had to be sacrificed. One client with a short Life Line told me how survival issues show up for him.

He explained, “Before I know it, I’m rationalizing starting the day earlier and earlier and ending later and later. I’m working fourteen-hour days as an average. There is a constant and never-ending continuation of tasks leading to my insanity.”

When I asked what has helped him, he said, “I’ve learned to see my big jobs as smaller jobs. I break large chunks of responsibility and work into smaller chunks. I can breathe easier as I settle down with bite-sized jobs.”

Breaking tasks into manageable portions is a healthy strategy for addressing the overwhelming frenzy that can gradually consume a person with a short or broken Life Line. If you have this type of Life Line remember to b r e a t h e. In this spirit, my friend William Sullivan wisely said, “when looking at building many a mile of fence, it’s best to take it one post at a time.”

Watch for my next article with key words, weak Life Line in the positive and negative, and a mantra to inspire internal balance.

Our Visit to the Taj Mahal

Kay holding book at Taj Mahal

One highlight of our trip to India was certainly the visit to the Taj Mahal. The (love) story behind it’s construction, the details in the carvings inset into the enormous structure, the types of colorful cut stones used throughout, and it’s extensive garden location on the Yamuna River are all part of the captivating experience. Below you’ll find a few photos taken during our visit in February 2016.

Getting from the taxi parking area to the Taj Mahal, in itself was a fascinating adventure because we road on a covered cart led by a camel. Sam and Kyle are sitting inside of the cart (below).

Camel Cart Ride to the Taj

 

Some how, a guide latched on to us, along with a photographer in the parking area and road with us on the camel cart. They both spoke English and were genuine in their connection with us, especially when Raymond needed to run back to the car to reclaim his wallet. I had opportunity to read the hands of our guide, the photographer and our camel cart driver. All were inspired with my interpretations of the line configurations in their Eastern hands.

I brought a copy of my book, intending to have a photo taken with me holding the book in the garden in front of the epic building.

Hand Reading Photographer at Taj

 

Kay reading Taj guides hands

 

Our guide handled the purchasing of our tickets into the property as well as hustling us through security. One glitch getting through security – snacks and my book! The snacks and my book were stuffed into and zipped up inside my purse. Both were promptly confiscated by security after the ex-ray machine revealed their identity. Our guide new how important it was to me to take my book inside. He told me to keep quite. He spoke in Hindi, making a hard negotiation for me to retain my book. Next thing I knew, after a 3rd security person had been engaged, our guide pushed the book back into my hands, told me to stuff it back in my purse and zip it up. “If you can get that purse zipped up, right now, you can keep your book with you throughout the tour.” He whispered, “They don’t want people to use the Taj as a promotional tool; taking photos with books or other articles. They are very strict about this rule.”

Okay, now that my book was smuggled inside the property, I schemed how to get the illegal photo taken. At just the right time, about 30 minutes into the tour, we looked around and observed that we were just far enough away from the security guards scattered throughout the grounds. Our guide said, “Now is the time, hurry!” I knew that meant, take your book out, lets get the photo, and return the book into your purse and keep it out of sight from then on!”

Mission accomplished! Here is the result of that instruction (photo below).

Your Life is in Your Hands at Taj Mahal India

 

Below are a few more photos taken during our tour of the Taj Mahal.

Kay inside the Mosque looking out

Inside the Mosque there is room for nine (9) women to pray on Sundays. We were there on a Monday otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have been permitted in. I took a moment to bow in prayer (above) and was immediately absorbed into an indescribable presence. The moment will be unforgettable.

How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

Taking note of the markings of the BS Detector

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.
