here to go back to 5 Elements Chinese Palmistry Index.
For a personal horoscope
is one thing to have relationships, marriages and affairs.
But how exactly does one tick?
What turns a person on? What
is the emotional psychology of each individual?
Look at the River of Emotions for the answer.
The River of Emotions begins on the percussion of the Air Finger and transverses the palm to end in various areas on the other side of the palms traveling through the influences of the various Elements of the Fingers that channel their forces on to it.
ideal River of Emotion is a deep pink line that gently curves in a
crescent towards the confluence of the Water and Earth Fingers, in a clear
uninterrupted flow. Such an
ideal line is rarely seen nowadays. But
a River of Emotion that flows in such a crescent with little breaks,
islands or downward drooping lines is as good as it can get to deem that
such a person is emotionally balanced, ready to give of himself or herself
unselfishly in matters of love and emotions.
But the River does not always take this route and the point of its source can reveal what is in the soul.
Should the River have
its source in the Area of Mars below the River of Life and Mentality,
giving the River a curve or crescent a downward curve, a reverse of the
ideal crescent, then such a person is not one who gives of himself or
herself freely. This person will be fussy and self-centered in matters of
the heart and in his or her affections. Such a person is irritable and short-tempered in a close
relationship, always finding reasons to avoid emotional commitments.
Unless the person he or she is involved in can satisfy his vanity
and egocentric demands, he will find relationships not worth the effort.
A flexible thumb can soften his intolerance but only to a degree.
A person with such a River of Emotion can become a misogynist or a
feminist. Should this person marry early he or she will try to adjust to
married life but the longer marriage is delayed, the less likely he or she
will marry. Such a like is seen mostly on the hands of men.
problematic source of the River of Emotions is one that flows past the
Mount of Water and over the percussion of the Mount.
Such a person becomes too demanding, jealous, possessive and
dominating. His or her
partner will have no life of his own as the person can be overpowering in
his demands. If the person with such a River of Emotion has a “Clubbed
Thumb” on an Earth hand, brutal force will be the way he will enforce
his or her will on those he possesses.
Such a combination is not privy to only men as it does occur with
women as well.
River of Emotion that runs straight on to the Mount of Water speaks of an
idealistic romantic who is more cautious and cerebral in his notions of
love and emotion. Such a
person visualizes and dreams, sometimes placing his emotional idol on a
pedestal only to discover that he or she is only human.
People with such lines wait for the “Right One” to come along
and usually end up “on the shelf”.
In olden days, when marriages were arranged, they would have
suffered in a less-than-perfect marriage because of
their lofty standards but nowadays, men and especially women with
such Rivers of Emotions should be prepared to ensure that they have a
solid career because in their love life they will not get the perfection
they seek unless they become realistic and are ready to compromise.
Such men and women end up desperate in their 30’s and begin to
develop complexes which breed disharmony within themselves. Marriage to a
person with such a River of Emotion can be difficult for someone who is
warm and demonstrative as such a person is reserved when it comes to an
outward show of his or her affections. Instead his feelings flow deep but
very strong nevertheless, with great thoughtfulness and silent ardor.
curved River of Emotion that warns of problem is one that curves sharply
towards the Finger of Earth. People
with such a curve seek sexual satisfaction and gratification above warmth
and affection. They can have
insatiable sexual appetites that manifests itself as early as when they
reach puberty. Such people
can develop early promiscuity and even become lesbians or homosexuals due
to the restraints of society or family to mingle with the opposite sex and
express their sexual ness and sometimes perverse desires.
Sex addicts would normally have such a River of Emotion. Do not be disturbed if you have such a line. Realise the drive that can propel you to act the way you do and always remember that you will have other redeeming factors in your palms and so seek them, but do not ruin your safety, dignity and self-pride by pandering to your lust.
Generally speaking, two
people whose Rivers of Emotions have the balanced crescent that curves
towards the base where the finger of Water and Earth meet are the most
compatible emotionally. They
will be open in their love for each other, fond of cuddles and displays of
emotion. In a relationship, they will act similarly and can reach an
emotional and comfortable state of giving and receiving with little
one party has the crescent and the other a straight line, then a great
deal more of effort and understanding is needed to reach a state of
acceptable compatibility. Naturally,
one party has to give-in more than the other to make things work, but it
is not impossible.
Should you meet someone with a downward sweeping curve especially if it reaches the Mount of Mars, then the road to romantic compatibility will be rough. But you must weigh the pros and cons of a union with your other inner needs like security, wealth, status and other materialistic benefits, then be thankful for it and brace yourself for the lack of other emotional cravings and desires within a relationship with such a person.
Knowing the emotional
capacity of your mate prepares you for the ups and downs in marriage.
But the most powerful key is the revelation of your own Emotional
persona or psyche. Self-understanding
in an area like emotions can lay bare the needs of your heart. Such knowledge can help you make right choices and prevent
mistakes. If you need a great
deal of demonstrative love, then make sure your husband or lover is
prepared to give it. If you
are overly sexual, do not marry a person who has a low libido.
That’s just asking for trouble and extra-marital relationships.
Should you have a straight, unending line and therefore a highly
demanding nature, then try not to marry a person with a free spirit and
then spend your lives in misery trying to break his or her spirit.
Look for a demure, compliant person who is ready to be under your
total control – if that is at all possible.
Before you try to understand what makes others tick, look into your own palms and let them tell you what makes you tick.
The River of Emotions
Lai Chin - 4th
While the River of
Emotions can show or predict the emotional state of any person, yet it
must be read together with other lines for confirmation.
It can project the strengths or weaknesses in the areas of
compassion, sexuality and caringness.
When the River of
Emotions moves towards the four finger or the Finger of Water, as shown in
Circle A, it reveals a person who becomes very dominating, possessive, and
stubborn. The palms above
belong to a woman aged 45 yrs. What Circle A shows, is confirmed by what is
shown in Circle F, where you will see that the River of Mentality
is separated from the River of Life.
This adds to a desire for independence of action, and therefore
brings rashness, over daringness and materialness.
The difference in the
left and right palm is seen clearly when comparing Circle A and Circle C.
In Circle C, the River of Emotions has stopped under the middle
finger. This shows a person
who does not reveal her inner compassion easily, and may be seen by others
to be cold. Improvement is
seen in the right hand in Circle A, therefore showing a person who
improves with age where personal relationships are concerned.
In Circle B, we see an
island formed, which shows difficult personal relationships at the ages of
51 and 52. This island is
repeated on the right hand as well, therefore confirming that such
problems are bound to happen. With
foresight and by forewarnings, the owner of these palms can reduce the
trouble that lies ahead.
The island shown in
Circle B can also reveal health problems due to a mental breakdown in love
areas, and this is shown in Circle E, which also represents the ages of 51
and 52 on the River of Life. Therefore,
the emotional state of a person as shown in the River of Emotions, can
lead to physical, financial or health problems as well.
Circle D shows the
River of Emotions fraying, and this reveals gastric problems, which again
one can predict at the ages of 51 and 52 as shown in Circle E.
The desire to control
and dominate by this person is also confirmed by the length of her Water
Fingers as shown in Circle G. These
fingers are longer than her Fire Fingers, showing natural leadership,
which may interfere in personal relationships, due to her assertiveness.
Overall, the River of
Emotions has improved greatly in her right palm, showing that she has
overcome past struggles, and that she is ambitious with a desire for
wealth. My advice to her
would be to tone down her erratic nature as shown in Circle F, and to
become more traditional, and not go against the establishment or the
social environment because the island shown in Circle B reveals that her
character that has no regard for rules.
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.
You can send in a photocopy of your left and right palm, or send in a scanned image, stating if you are right or left handed, with your date of birth, for an analysis in this column.
