The Line of Inspiration runs upward on the Jupiter mound toward the pointer (Jupiter) finger. Jupiter, as part of Greek mythology, is known as a visionary with high ideals for the kingdom. There’s not much room for the Jupiter Vertical Line to sit on the palm so even if this line is short, the owner will feel compelled to move forward motivated by her or his vision.
This line can sprout off the life line (see handprint below with arrow pointing to the vertical line), stand alone or be seen in multiples. If you have this line you’ll do well to clarify your ideas and utilize your zeal of ambition to inspire others to follow their dreams. If you aren’t already, consider expressing your innate power in an influential role in a high profile career or as a home wrangler aiming all tasks and home inhabitants toward goals. You might say, “I’ve got the need to achieve. Or “You can do it!”
Notice in this handprint (above), she has both a long vertical line under the Jupiter (Index) finger and a dominant Jupiter finger. The dominant finger is the finger that looks ‘the best’ out of all four digits. The combination of both a long Jupiter Vertical Line and a strong Jupiter finger, denotes a positive force of Jupiter – the sky god, seeing the big picture, influencing for the good of all.
My clients with a vertical line under Jupiter, inspire others toward their potentials like coaches and ministers. Its often easier to boost others to their aspirations than they do to their own, however, that, in itself, brings fulfillment to the inspirer. Some palmistry books call this the line of ambition, but I do not. There is a correlation between ambition and inspiration. Ambition stems from desire. People with ambition motivate themselves and others toward a goal, with purpose. I’ve seen many ambitious, determined, driven people without this line. I don’t usually associate the word ambition with this line unless I said something like, “It looks like you have ambition, based on your vision, to inspire others.”
If you don’t have this vertical line, and you inspire others to their greatness, keep it up! There are other markings in the hand that support your actions to motivate.

The Pluto zone sits on the outer edge of the palm, mid way, just below the start of the heart line. When I see a line starting in this section of the palm and curving up toward the ring or middle finger the owner is best suited for a career in ‘death, transformation and regeneration’. Coaching people to move through radical change such as paralyzing sports injuries, homes lost during disasters, and unexpected job loss would be a good fit. The individual with this etching has a keen ability to understand the natural process of change.
If you have this line, your good hair day probability is that you regularly act as a channel, crusading from rubble to renovation to revelation. You may find yourself witnessing devastating loss leading to profound life awareness’s. You would also use your abilities to move through change, like Kubler Ross who studied and taught about five stages of grief. Ultimately you inspire others and shine the light to step onward and upward.
If the owner of a Pluto line is having a bad hair day, she may feel stuck in the muck where she has experienced deep loss herself and hasn’t moved out of it yet. Maybe she is morning the loss of her grandmother after ten years. There is a healthy period for grieving the loss of a loved one. However, remaining too long in depression or denial is unfavorable to living a fulfilling life.
With the line of Pluto, the potential to guide and direct others through unchartered territories is a talent to investigate and cultivate in order to live a meaningful life.
Tip for the Radical Change Agent: Continue to strengthen your abilities to deal with and embrace the unexpected and align your career with your natural skill set.
Gift Markings, when found on the hands, reveal a person’s potential aptitude, ability, skill, and talents – in short their gifts in very specific areas. Talents aren’t always realized because people can be reluctant to come out in their fullest potential. It’s easier to play small for most people.
One example of a gift marking is when a person has six or more vertical lines on the mount under the pinkie finger. The lines don’t drop below the heart line. This is the mark of the Gifted Healer who has profound psychological insights. The Gifted Healer is considered a growth catalyst for personal development. Her friends inherently solicit her counsel for problems because she has a ‘listening’ ear. She personifies sage wisdom.
On a good hair day she is in tune with her Inner voice, trusting the insights she perceives. She is available to herself enough to listen to, hear and respond to That Voice. She uses the gift for her own relationship, family and career challenges. The upside potential for someone with eight or more vertical stripes is to be a Healer for Healers. Professional Healers such as Therapists, Health Coaches, Veterinarians, Ministers and even Hair Dressers go to this soul-centered-practitioner for counsel and guidance. At her best, the Gifted Healer is a cheerleader for her clients, practicing as a profession.
The bad hair day possibility for the Gifted Healer is that she’ll ignore her inner voice. Snubbing the inner voice leads to blocked intimacy in relationship. If you have these markings check your life flight pattern for dead end relationships or dodging exposing your truth to you mate. You’ve undoubtedly said to yourself, “Oh, if only I would have responded to that little voice inside, I would have saved myself a lot of grief.” You’re learning to work through trust issues to get to a point of trusting your self in all situations.
Tip for the Gifted Healer: Listen and respond to your inner voice even if it says, “Don’t take that job with the incredibly high salary” or “No, don’t date that super model” or telling your husband of 25 years, “I plan to enroll in school a help people heal themselves.”
If you have both a line of Pluto and the mark of the Gifted Healer, I’d consider you an Insightful Guide for Rebirth. Your life fulfillment blueprint includes weaving both of these skill sets as a livelihood.
Keep in mind:
1. You want to be a Healer but you don’t have the Gifted Healer mark? Not to worry. Follow your heart and be grateful you probably won’t experience the bad hair day possibility to the extreme degree of the person with the vertical stripes under the Pinkie finger.
2. We are on a learning journey. We veer off track to know where the next segment of our life path is to be found. To find the middle of the road we must drive on the reflectors in the center lane as well as run off road into a few road signs. Cautionary devices awaken us to balance.
3. If you don’t have these markings, it doesn’t mean you can’t live in these good hair day possibilities. You can do what you set your mind to.
Many people ask me, “What does this mean?” As they point to a mysterious marking in their hand. Maybe you have wondered about a few markings in your own hands.
In all aspects of the hand there is an upside and a down side possibility. I like to say a good hair day/bad hair day potential. When I have my hair done at the salon there is a likelihood for a great outcome that I’m really happy with or something that needs to be redone! Eeek.
Throughout your life, haven’t you experienced exceptional hair days and miserable hair days? This is the dance to a just right hair day? Sort of like Goldilocks moving through the beds that were too hard and too soft to get to the bed that felt just right.
See the simple hand map below along with a few descriptions of markings. Check your hands – and your friends too!
Venus is the goddess of love and pleasure. The Venus mount is the area where the thumb plugs into the ball of the palm. Pink ink is showing the expansion of the Venus zone. If this area is rounded and full – sort of voluptuous looking – it indicates an man or woman who is sensual and in touch with her appetites whether they consist of lush velvet curtains and romantic candles, fancy wine and cheese or hunky men with appealing bodies to touch. Tip for a voluptuous Venus: Enjoy your passions but keep those desires in check.
Alternatively, if this Venus mount is flat, hard to the touch, and straight along the edge of the mount, the owner may be challenged to find joy in their life. She may be all work and no play. A person with a flat Venus zone might complain about being bogged down with work and responsibilities and unable to express where she feels joy in their life. Tip for a flat Venus: Keep a joy-journal. In the joy-journal, identify what brings you delight. When do you feel your best and how can you bring more of delight and enchantment into your life?
Jupiter is known as the Sky God with exceptional vision and requirements for a large territory. If someone has a 6-pointed star, like an asterisk on the mount under the index finger, then I’d read her as an ambitious woman gifted with the ability to influence. She has the forte to galvanize change in the world. She may sense an invisible and constant ‘push’ on her back to keep her moving forward toward results.
The bad hair day possibility with the star on the Jupiter mount is that she could take the back seat to another leader, manager or King and act as the lady behindthe throne. She would eagerly align the kingdom to the other leader(s). However, while in position behind the throne, the followers will still most likely see her as the one to obey. Ideally, she is gaining experience and aiming to claim her authority, pointing the way with her own vision, reigning over her own Queendom. Tip for the gifted leader: Oversee from your own throne to feel most fulfilled.
If you have both a full Venus mount and a Star on Jupiter then others may see you as a charming and generous leader, lavishing your followers with the deliciousness of life.
Watch for the next lessons on the Pluto Line and the vertical lines under the pinkie finger.
Talus and Mom came by share his two-year-and-seven-month hands with me. He intently performed my requested hand printing, almost without instruction. He printed his baby doll too!
Talus calls this line racing across his hand (above), “A Monkey Line.” The monkey does fly from tree to tree with intent and grace. I also like to think of it like a tight-rope where the walker is very aware of his (or her) every step. Years of practice assure the walker remains wrapped to the line.
There is a particular etching in the palm of the hand that illustrates immense sensitivity to the energy patterns of the Universe. The print below shows two arrows pointing to a line arcing below the two middle fingers on the upper area of the palm.
The term “Girdle of Venus” is used in older Palmistry although it is nowhere near the Mount of Venus. Vernon Mahabal calls this marking “The Line of Neptune” because of the area of the Palm he associates the marking to. Regardless of the name the explanations are similar.
Imagine yourself at a puppy farm where the puppies are confined in the worst conditions. It’s hard to even write about the atmosphere of the puppy farms. Those cute, furry creatures eat and sleep in their own urine and feces. Or imagine, for a moment the living, if you can call it that, arrangements in the war-time concentration camps in Germany. See in your mind’s eye the sleeping quarters, lack of food, water and shelter. Envision the smell of the burning bodies in those horrid camps.
If I’ve lost you and you quit reading the above depiction of humanistic night mares, you most likely carry the great sensitivity associated with of the Line of Neptune (AKA Girdles of Venus). The owners of a Line of Neptune are highly tuned in to the energies of wide-reaching suffering because of a highly evolved Universal Love they carry. It is extremely difficult for the owner to see, hear about or even consider the massive pains and experiences of masses of peoples or animals. It hurts the heart too deeply to engage in the ache in the world. They have a tenderness of heart.
If you have this marking, you may have learned to manage your profound sensitivity to the force of suffering and sadness with invisible or visible ear muffs. Ear protection is symbolic for much needed protection from wide scale energies that can be exceedingly overwhelming. The sensation of misery, agony and torment can feel unbearable. In reaction to this subtle and usually indescribably agitation, you may have chosen to live in the country or along the open coast line, away from the pin ball energy bounce of the city.
It’s very important to care for yourself and the effects of the invisible antennas permanently mounted to the top of your head. You are in constant contact, tuned in, tapped in and turned on to subtle energies at a universal level.
On a bad day, at your worst, if the sensitivities are not treated with great care and attention, you could develop addictions to escape the all consuming energetic world. Addictions to drugs or alcohol appear to numb the affects of the hidden forces of energy. If you increase your attention on the worldly suffering, unhealthy fantasy, delusion and false ideals may consume and replace your capacity of vast and insightful vision.
At your very best you will harness the elevated vision you carry with your faith in the Divine and fully utilize your experience and skill working for Universal Welfare. Perhaps you choose to perform as a deeply caring Doctor, Nurse, Social Worker, Hospice Worker, Green Peace worker a Nun or some Spiritual function helping at a worldly level. Hand Analysis, Quantum Healing, World Wide Meditation Circles, Habitat for Humanity, Emotional Freedom Techniques and other Metaphysical fields bring out the psychology of the heart. On the Master Path, the owner knows how to use the appropriate dosage of suffering – just enough to cultivate their understanding and love. There is a capability to cultivate compassion for all living beings.
If you hold this marking in your hand, consider how life would look for you if you were to fully utilize your gift of universal compassion, caring and love out in the world.
Only when there is understanding of suffering can there be acceptance and love. “If there were no suffering how could we understand our own suffering and the suffering of others in order to accept and truly love them?” Sister Dang Nghiem – Disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh
The owner of this Line of love on a grand scale learns from the pain and transforms that pain into understanding and awareness. Then the suffering no longer paralyzes, overwhelms or drives one into fanaticism and escape. As this happens you realize you carry the energy of the buddhas and bodhisattvas.

Below are two markings in the palm of the hand to give me a clue that this 15-year-old is on a passionate exploration at Life U.
What I explained to her:
The purple line running across your palm at the top of the hand is your heart line. This type of line is called the Passionate heart line. This tells me that you like excitement and despise boredom. You can express your emotions with a fire-like nature – quick and blunt. This line also indicates that you are charismatic and people like to be around you, like they would a campfire. People become mesmerized by the ‘colors’ you exude – blue, red, purple, orange… all those fire-like colors. The passionate type usually does a good job at expressing her “I wants”. While you may not always get them, expressing what you want is healthy because you express the energy that wants to be expressed like a river unblocked by a damn. The upside of your heart line is that you are fun, outgoing, excitable, enthusiastic and passionate. On a ‘bad day’ you can move into YOUR ‘I wants’ too deeply and forget the desires of others. To balance this it’s good to maintain your desires AND also consider the desires of others.
The pink curving line toward the bottom outer edge of your palm tells me you seek out stimulation as an explorer and investigator. Again, boredom will drive you crazy so it’s good that you read and have many new opportunities at high school to satisfy your inquisitiveness. You can also think of this as being a line of curiosity; you like to keep things interesting. Seeking the un-ordinary is ordinary for you.
With the highest ranking fingerprint on your right ring finger, your Life purpose is the Artist – the Woman in the Spotlight being true to her muse. Expressing your SELF is the most important thing you can do – it’s what you came here to do. Your life challenge is to feel accomplished and successful while being true to YOU, standing your ground…. all on the life foundation of Peace and Harmony. I read your ‘challenge’ from your fingerprint patterns on your right Thumb, right middle finger and left ring finger. The arches on your fingerprints resemble mounds of the earth. The earth is secure and provides a solid foundation. You’ll feel best when you feel secure.
As with most things, to know one side you have to know the opposite. When it comes to Peace, a person, like you, will best know Peace by experiencing and moving through sensations of Panic. You may feel panic running through your body at different times under various circumstances. The best thing you can do is to BREATE your way through it and silently remind yourself that you ARE SAFE. You do have nice long vitality/life lines so you are able to ‘ground’ with ease.
Observations: What’s attention-grabbing is the paradoxical combination of the deep desire for peace and harmony along with the need to explore and investigate the unusual. Oddly enough, for this youngster, her tranquility could very well be found in her most stimulating adventures. With a flirtatious flair, she could push the envelope, dance to the edge and sing to the masses with the circ-de-sole, as an example.
Insight from the American Academy of Hand Analysis ~ by Kay Packard Subject:The Tight Rope – Mastering Communications Marking in the Hand: Simian Line – Heart and Head Lines entwined in Union on one or both hands.
Interpretation: A level of intense behavior is associated with the owner of a simian line(s). The line acts as a divide separating the upper (abstract) and lower (physical) areas of the palm. The divide is like a tight rope, and walking it takes extreme balance, focus, training, skill and courage. The documentary film Man on Wire depicts the dogged drive, interior discipline, and relentless engagement needed to walk the rope. Nothing seems to matter to the ‘man’ but the wire.
Now imagine the difficulty if the rope being walked is being pulled in two different directions, like a game of tug of war. Whoa! That is the challenge facing those with a simian line(s). They find themselves quickly walking, if not sprinting, back and forth between opposites. “Today I want carpet, tomorrow I want wood floors”. And it’s installed within 24 hours by their own hands!
Another challenge for the owner of this marker is to communicate effectively. The thinking system (head) is tightly woven with the feelings (heart) system and therefore usually influences how the words flow out of her mouth. While she feels she is being very clear in her words, the person or group she’s speaking to may misunderstand her. Likewise, words coming into her ears from another may also get garbled up and misinterpreted. This can be frustrating for both parties. Just trying to keep up with the lightning fast progression in a conversation with the owner of a simian line can be exhausting, but very exciting!
There is internal tension here similar to a snake shedding its skin. The old skin is released and the mind/body prepared for the new. Yet the ‘new’ brings uncertainties that can feel awkward and potentially unbearable. This gives the impression of a ‘critical edge’. Their volatility isn’t about another person; it is purely about their internal struggle to understand their own emotional excitement, distress, joy, restlessness, frustration and dissatisfactions.
Recommendationfor the Owner: Allow and accept yourself for your tendencies to act/react and then retreat. You seem to feel more than others and you might not understand why they are not as intense as you, or vice-versa, why you are so intense. There is nothing wrong with you. You are amazing! You have tremendous energy for accomplishment and are learning to effectively harness and apply that power. You ‘over-process’ on the inside, so others may see you as either a run away freight train, or aloof and uncaring. Your job is to communicate in a variety of ways to be understood. Practice, practice, practice. Give yourself time to percolate those intense feeling-thoughts, and be sure to have a physical outlet to release them in order to avoid less healthy ways to calm down. If you feel a desperate need reinvent yourself – hang in there! You may suddenly transport to a new level in your personal evolutionary journey. Vigor and drive compel your walk on the tight rope. Your path of great potential is being a Communications Master!

Relationships are core to every aspect of our life. Imagine the number of relationship opportunities you have in a day. You talk, text and listen. Your body emotes and integrates. How we engage with others depends on endless factors. We can be attracted, distracted, repulsed or neutral to other people. Dependencies on relationships with individuals will vary from person to person. Friends, mates, co-workers, children, siblings, parents, strangers and more comprise the roles of relationships.
Each person has a different priority in maintaining relationship, to what level and how intensely. People inclined to be more introverted than extroverted maintain a different attitude and motivation toward relationship than do those who are more extroverted. Likewise, ‘thinkers’ will engage more logically than ‘feelers’ who live more through their emotions.
Success in relationship depends largely on you knowing what is important to you in general and at any given moment. It also depends on you noticing how you react to words, language, beliefs, and actions of other people. The people around us and how we observe them points directly back to ourselves and the relationship we have with our self.
In the world of hand analysis, each person has a life purpose, a life lesson and a designated life path. Each person is on a particular training program at Life University. This training program can be decoded from the vibrational imprint of the fingerprints. The potential of the soul can be read from those prints and plays a part in relationships.
The heart lines in the hand shows the relationship approach of the owner. By interpreting the heart line types in the hands you get substantial clue as to the inclinations, preferences and requirements of the affections for self and others.
Hand shapes show the personality traits of the owners. The hand shape can show you the character a person will display in relationship.
Identification and interpretation of gift markings can tremendously help to determine talents and challenges the owner will encounter as an individual. Those gifted characteristics may also be revealed in relationship.
Overall the consciousness one holds will affect the behavior of every single interaction in relationship. Consciousness is Self awareness; how tuned-in one is with her own inner-operations. I like to equate Self awareness to a level of self-love and attentiveness to a style of loving.
The hands hold a key to one’s disposition for relationship. Through relationship people can heal. The deepest healing involves love and the healing of love. Love is more than an emotion; it is a power unto itself.
Consider this power of love as you entwine with another person whether it be on facebook, texting, talking or embracing. Are you open to learning more about your style in relationship? Do you have a mate to join you in a couples reading? If so use the Contact Us form to schedule time with Kay to analyze your hands and fingerprints and articulate your love-style.
I recently spent a few days on a stretch of cliffs overlooking the magnificent California coast line. The beaches were stunning and the jagged vertical rock walls put me in awe of the vast ocean. During the night, with the hotel slider wide open to the sea, I heard the ceaseless waves crashing into the cliff walls. It was an absolute rush!
Well marked ‘caution’ signs were located on the railings near the edges of the cliffs. However, those signs are in English. People have to know English to read the signs and that’s IF they pay attention. Of course it’s obvious not to get too close to the edge… or is it? Dare devils and risk takers are compelled to see how far they can walk the ledge. There are also the curious and simple minded who may misplace a foot hold and take a fatal spill. Cars park within inches of the fence and the edge of a potential fall. Survival would be questionable after tumbling off the rim of one of these cliffs.
In life, how often are you confronted with the ‘jagged edge’? Do you recognize when you’re approaching an unsteady frontier? Most people operate on auto-pilot 85% of the time. What would a ‘jagged edge’ look like to you, in your own life?
Are you the type to get closer and closer to the edge, steer clear entirely, or somewhere in between? Can you interpret the ‘caution’ signs? Do you know the language in print? Are you surrounded by people who rally to boost you to your higher ground?
Life is full of opportunities to experience Divine beauty in all things. With the splendor comes risk. Risk is mitigated by knowing how to read the signs. Tapping into your intuition is quite helpful in times of danger. The brain will respond to your intuition IF the brain can ‘read the sign’.
Your hands reveal markings that can help you, or anyone, to understand their life path, the best directions to take, how to correct after going off course and how to make sense of the most challenging obstacles. Talents, potentials, inclinations, and motivations besides the life purpose and life lessons can be pinpointed in the hands and fingerprints to help a person live in their most empowered self.
If you want to learn to read hands, you can become skilled at identifying and articulating the trail markers around the cliffs of life. The abyss can be bypassed with greater ease. If by chance someone has fallen off the edge with no apparent way up you can offer hope and guidance. It’s all clearly mapped out in the hands and fingerprints.
The AAHA is offering a bonanza of training classes for the beginner and intermediate student. See the curriculum tab for details on this training program offered at the AAHA.
Have you heard of Pareto’s Law? You may have heard of the 80/20 Principle. The Law, as an example, demonstrates that 20% of workers accomplish 80% of productivity in any business setting. Vilfredo Pareto was an economist and philosopher (and more) who determined that 80% of the wealth was generated by 20% of the population. He revealed that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the inhabitants.
I leaned about the Pareto Rule over 20 years ago during my corporate life as a statistician. My analytical mind was put to use identifying and tracking metrics in the Hughes satellite factory in El Segundo, California. The goal – improvement – only happens through measuring and responding to those measurements. Root Cause Analysis and observation leads to success – guaranteed.
In the book “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Timothy Ferris, he suggests identifying the 20% of your sources that produce 80% of your desired results and happiness. Evaluating this theory at a personal level is quite insightful.
What are your ‘desired results” and what does “happiness” mean to you? You may want to get a pen and paper and jot down what comes to mind. Taking 5 minutes to read this and respond to your Inner Voice may drastically and irrevocably advance you toward your ideal life.
“Simplicity requires ruthlessness” Ferris says. To figure out what is most ‘important’ to do he suggests that you pretend you had a heart attack and can only work two hours a day. What would you complete if you could ‘do’ for only two hours a day? To obtain that which brings you the most happiness and joy, what would you do? How would you be? Who would you be in those two hours? Getting to this realization takes courage, awareness and bottom line thinking.
During the development of my latest hand analysis course, I’ve been contemplating the head line (in the hand) called “The Ruthless Mind”, named by Richard Unger. I call it the ‘Bottom Line Mind.” See Figure 1 with the head line traversing the palm with a flip up at the end. Look to see if you have one on your hand.
This head line indicates a super processor with the ability to get to the bottom line at lightning speed. This person is aware of what is really going on behind the scenes. She can condense the two-hour movie script into two sentences. She created the CliffNotes for “War and Peace” by Leo Tolstoy….and then simplified it even more.
If you have a head line, with a flip up at the end, toward the fingers, you’re probably not even reading this article any longer because you know where I’m ‘headed’. However, the other head line types might be curious.
Even if you don’t have this ‘Bottom Line Mind’ head line, you can still take a shortcut. Engage your internal computer to carry out a sequence of arithmetic or logical operations that serve you.
Sizzle up your surveillance system. It’s obviously working for you in its own perfect way. And you can change the integrated circuitry to execute instructions for your happiness!
It’s OK to be ruthless in your Self inquiry. Get brutally and radically honest about your-good-stuff. Take a moment and quickly identify the 20% of your actions that bring you 80% of your delight. Think about this; 80% of the joy, bliss, satisfaction, peace, success – or whatever your-good-stuff definition is, comes from ONLY 20% of your CONSCIOUS actions. Don’t believe me. Experiment yourself.
Your computer program may rely on other people’s expectations, potential negative responses or on-going criticisms. For now, put them all on pause, or hit the delete key.
You are programmable. You have a code. You’re constantly calculating. This is Life-You. Say “Yes” to “You”. If needed, insert a new micro chip and get to the bottom line of your source of joy. Be still and go within.
If you feel the urge, report back to me. Your input will be gladly assimilated into my microprocessor.
