here to go back to 5 Elements Chinese Palmistry Index.
For a personal horoscope
The inner terror of losing one’s livelihood
can be emotionally crippling. It
not only brings on the pressures of financial commitments, the devastation
of self-pride and confidence but also the bleak insecurity of what the
future holds. During the
throes of such a personal hell, the isolation and loneliness whittles one
down to level zero. One does
not know which way to go or who to turn to.
The answer –
be it a warning or a message of hope, is written in hand.
One of the major
lines that runs from around the wrist upwards towards the Earth finger is
called the River of Destiny. As
the River of Destiny or Fate flows towards the Earth finger, it meets
various markings, snaps or influences that indicate how a person’s
career, business and livelihood will fair.
A right-hander will note the line on the right hand and a
left-hander the left hand, irrespective of gender.
In olden days, the left hand of the woman would reveal her Life’s
Destiny but nowadays with women becoming more in command of their life,
the right hand has become her Road Map of Life.
The presence of
the River of Destiny on the right hand is essential for success in one’s
career. The line may be faint
on certain hands like the Water hand or the Lotus Pod hand or it may be
broken and frail, but its presence is essential for the career of a man to
be of any worth.
If it rises from
the wrist and flows straight into the Finger of Earth, it is contrary to
the belief that the person’s career will be fantastic but rather that
such a person will have no control of his or her Destiny and career, to
the extent of being used as a pawn or being totally subjected to
another’s will and plan.
The ideal is a
line that rises from around the wrist and rising upwards towards the Earth
Finger but not entering the lower phalange.
If the line meanders or sends a branch towards the Fire finger,
then success and glory is assured. If
it ends or sends a branch towards the Water finger, then it predicts the
rise to high office and position. If
there are two branches, one going towards the Fire finger and the other
towards the Water finger, then the hand holds the promise of success,
recognition and position with power.
This is the
promise no matter how eventful the passage of the River of Fate and
Destiny will be.
If the River of
Destiny begins with a fork – one branch rising from the Mount of the
Moon and the other from the Region of Venus, then the person’s career
will be troubled by the passion, emotions and sensitivity of the
person’s nature and a great deal of control is needed to keep the person
focused on his or her goals in life.
As the Region of
Venus rules the family, the line rising from this area or clinging to this
area reveals that family and family ties will control his destiny. He or she may work in the family’s company or the
commitments of family will restrict his ambitious dreams or thwart his
If the line
rises from the Mount of the Moon, then it reveals that such a person can
pursue a career involving dealing with the public and even become the
Darling of the Masses. This
is fortunate for those who want to become entertainers, politicians or in
any careers where he or she is in touch with a variety of different
If the River of
Destiny begins in the middle of the palm, then the career of the person
will only establish itself after hard work and perseverance.
Beginning from the River of Mentality, then the indications are
that through and because of deep thinking, strong brainpower and mental
perseverance, the person will carve a successful business and career for
himself. It can also indicate
that a brilliant idea or scheme can launch the successful career of the
Should the line
begin from the River of Emotions, then it indicates that the love and
passion of a person for something can give birth to a person’s
successful career or the inheritance of a business from a loved one.
Unfortunately, this will generally be late in life.
Many palmists and astrologers encourage the wearing of a ring on the Finger of Faith. They believe that it will enhance the growth of the River of Destiny and strengthen the Earth Element of Earth in a person, which encourages sobriety, stability and caution. But wearing a ring on this finger, especially if it embeds a gemstone, can trap your Earth Element making you either over cautious or even destabilise you. Besides that, should you already have a good River of Destiny, a ring can inhibit the natural flow of your River of Destiny and make you prone to excesses and over anxiety of the future.
As the River of
Destiny flows, it can be attacked or strengthened by various marks. Positive markings like influence lines, triangles and the
strengthening of the River of Destiny tells a turn of events for the
better when these markings appear.
When a Star
appears on the line, it denotes a disaster waiting to happen.
If a box or square traps the star, then it is translated as a
disaster or problem that will explode that can damage a person’s career,
but some protection will suddenly come to protect the person from an
the line snaps or breaks apart, it heralds the sudden loss of a job,
business, earning power and career of the person.
If the River appears again, then it predicts that all will resume
again. The period of break
reveals the time the person will be jobless or unsettled.
Should the River of Destiny reappear stronger than before, then the
career will return with more stability and security than before the
An overlapping break indicates a planned
move or career change. The
quality of the line reveals if the change will be for the better or worse.
When the lines break frequently, it reveals an instability or
inability of the person to hold down a job or focus on his career.
Serious consideration has to be taken to analysis this occurrence,
as it could be due to a disinterest in the chosen profession or career, an
attitude problem that has to be corrected or a period of ill health that
interferes with the career path.
When a spear or a cut crosses the River of
Destiny, it indicates a hurdle or problem that arises in the career.
If the River carries onwards then it merely indicates a hurdle to
cross, if the line ceases then this hurdle is serious enough to end the
career or business.
If the spear that crosses the line and cuts
it begins from the Region of Venus, then the cause of the problem will be
a woman. If the spear begins
from the Mount of Mars, then a man will cause the problem.
If the spear crosses the River of Destiny and ends in an island or
star, then the person who had caused the disturbance and turbulence will
come to no good and also meet his or her own Retribution.
When there are two Rivers of Destiny, it
indicates two careers running parallel.
Some women who are devoted mothers and have to take on the roles of
both Mother and Father while holding on to a career may develop such twin
Rivers of Destiny on their hands for the period they had to cope with this
Should there be too many interfering
rivulets running alongside the River of Destiny, it can indicate the
interference of too many people in the person’s life or that the person
has more than one job or interests and it shows a period where the career
is under pressure or lacks focus. If
one of these lines strengthens and takes over the River of Destiny, then
it reveals that one of the hobbies, jobs or interests of the person will
take over and a new career will begin.
The timing when this occurrence manifests itself is of utmost importance as it can then prepare us for the event. Various palmists through the ages expound a rough guide but my personal research and experience has made me use the backing of astrology for absolute accuracy. To be precise, a full reading and drawing up of an astrological chart should be done but for the layman, a simple calculation of a person’s “Soul Number” based on numerology can be a revelation.
To get your Soul Number, just bring your
birth date to a single digit then bring your age to a single digit.
If they match then it shows cruciality in timing.
It can be for better or worse as this would depend on a more in
depth analysis but at least know this much can alert you to the crossroad
in your career especially if a significant marking or break coincides on
your River of Destiny around that period in your life.
There are messages written on your palms. Read and take note of them.
It may help you avoid a devastating calamity or give you the
courage to ride your Destiny to success.
fortnightly series on palmistry begins this week. Palmistry, called
cheiromancy, predates astrology as a predictive art. When man noted the
changing lines on the palm and the similar yet different shapes of hands (cheirognomy)
and palm lines, they endeavoured to analyse their meanings. MADAM ZORRA, a
practicing face fen shui master, incorporates the Shou Hsiang (hand
analysis) into the Jen Hsiang (people analysis) for an accurate reading.
Palm lines change constantly and this has given rise to the belief that
they through our course of action, for better or worse.
