here to go back to 5 Elements Chinese Palmistry Index.
For a personal horoscope
Palmistry is the study of the shape of the hands and lines on the palms to access life patterns of a person. It has been a study that dates back to prehistoric times and predates astrology as paintings of Man’s curiosity of the lines on a hand have been discovered in cave paintings in various parts of the world.
The Chinese have developed a system of hand analysis based on the five elements of: Water – Air – Fire – Earth- Ether. Their uniqueness is that they seek a prediction of life – past and present to determine where such a life path will lead them in the future and their destiny lies in their own hands. Wu Hsiang palmistry offers a chance to correct the course of a life that is destined for disaster or maintain a course that will bring personal peace and harmony.
Much of this is based on sound Eastern Philosophy that man lives in the midst of Nature and is part of it. When man is in harmony with himself then he reacts harmoniously with Nature and thus creates an environment that brings peace.
If man is distributed or unbalanced, he creates disharmony that generates from his being and disrupts his surroundings. As an example, a man who is discontented with his life seeks forgetfulness in alcohol, he then creates unhappiness when he squanders his earnings on drinks and in his state of intoxication loses control and beats up his wife and children who are already suffering due to the lack of money to buy food or the necessities of life.
This behavior from the head of a household, whose role is to provide and protect his family, spaws negative traits in his children who in turn are more prone to emulate their fathers behavior. His wife is also subjected to her own sufferings which will in turn force her to create more unhappiness and disharmony.
Wu Hsiang seeks to warn of misguided pathways and direct the seeker of knowledge to a more meaningful and fulfilling way of life. The belief is that the future is based on your present acts and you are responsible for your future based on your past and present acts.
Wu Hsiang can predict if you will be rich, famous and get married but more important, it can predict if you can handle your good fortune or if you will destroy yourself. This allows you to take measures before hand, to steer you clear of disastrous mistakes.
In Chinese Palmistry of Wu Hsiang, the hand resembles the Tree of Life. It develops from the sound base of Earth from which emotions or Water springs, that gives rise to Fire or creativity that depends of Air or intellect and the result is spiritual awareness, Development and peace on Earth.
Hand shapes determine
When the palm is square
and the fingers end evenly at the top and are the same length as the palm
then such hands are considered as Earth shaped hands.
Such people tend to be
very grounded, practical in approach to things in life and in control of
their emotions to overcome them. It does not mean that they are devoid of
emotions but their passion is Earthly and physical rather than being built
on romantic notions. Words of love seldom or never leave their lips but
their deeds and action speaks for them.
Such hands are capable of
earning a good living from practical work and they do not yearn for glamour
or high office. Dressing up in a tuxedo will make them very uncomfortable
and women with such a hand-type prefer the smells of herbs and the fresh
smell of nature rather than sophisticatedly blended perfumes.
The Water Hand
hypersensitive in nature, people with such hands are artistic and very
impressionable. They have complex emotional relationships and are easily
influenced. They instinctively understand human emotions and character and
will therefore do well in vocations and careers that need human interaction
and understanding. Water hands are fine boned pale and narrow with fingers
that are longer than their palms. Their tastes are very refined be it in
food, color and style. Environments and ambiences affect them deeply and
they do well when they are in a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere. They pick
out disconted easily and are deeply affected by it.
Women with such hands
make good wives and mothers always willing to make the home a heaven of
peace. Men with such hands are delicate in health and spirit and do better
handling small businesses with a lot of human interactions.
Both men and women of
such hand type need romance and tend to have romantic interludes outside
their marriage when their marriage becomes mundane or boring. Bringing
romance back to it and they promptly become ardent and thrilling again.
The Fire Hand
The Fire Hand belongs to
an active and passionate type of person who need strong inter-action in life
to keep them upbeat. Their palms are rectangular with short, even, capable
fingers. Their palms are usually red or blotchy.
Stimulating in thought
and action, they are full of energy and can motivate other into action and
thought provoking ideas. They are born to lead and are best when they hold
such positions no matter in what capacity. The negative Fire Type Hands
could be leaders of gangs or criminal pursuits and the superior Fire Type
can become great generals or Company Executives.
To ensure that they
maintain a healthy and fulfilling life, they should never allow their minds
or bodies to become idle, instead, they should keep active all their lives,
with an interesting hobby to occupy their lives when the challenges of their
careers come to an end.
Women with such hand
types are never totally satisfied with just keeping house and having babies.
Forcing them to do that dull their minds and evoke rebellion eventually
which will endanger family harmony.
The Air Hand
Shorter longer fingers
situated on a square palm that is shorter than the middle finger is
considered an air hand. People with such a hand type are born communicators
and connect best on a mental level with those around them. Using the logical
or abstract form of deduction to come to decisions.
Disliking constraints in
any form both physical and mental, they seek new horizons constantly.
Marriage or established rules and disciplines suffocate them resistance or
revolt. Freedom of choice and movement is their way of life though they long
for an anchor to give them some stability. They are the inventors and the
adventurers. All forms of communications in their professional life, will
bring them the satisfaction they need.
In love, they communicate
freely their feelings and expect a similar response otherwise they become
insecure which seems like a paradox because they refused to be committed in
love but require the security it affords.
Ether, Energy is when the
state of consciousness is attained at every level. It is a culmination of
all elements in to one and the harmony of all elements into a whole. The
Ether hand is the refined hand of the higher intellect and philosopher. The
fingers are gently taper with the sageness of bamboo knots at each phalange
which rises from the triangular lotus pod shaped palms.
It is the hand of sages
and wise men who view life on Earth as a passage to the final step in their
evolution or re-incarnation. Their role is as a teacher, a guide, a
counselor in the path to righteousness and inner peace. They appear in any
of the Earth and at every level of society as it is not only the poor and
deprived that earns the right to a better Karma.
Such hands are seen in
King’s holy men, doctors and those who take on a mission to correct the
injustices on Earth or bring to it some joy and goodness. These are
considered “old hands” where the experiences of past lives have etched
lines of wisdom and inner knowledge and who are equipped to open the hearts
and minds of the unaware, the meaning of true life.
