Introduction Tremendous mystery is associated with the palm. The mystery of the palm is what may be called palmistry. A superficial survey of the lines does not reveal the truth. That is why palmistry is not merely an art to be cultivated but a science to be studied and practiced with meticulous care and diligence. "God made marks upon the hands of men, that the sons of men might know them." (Book of Job). The marks or the lines that we see on the palm of an individual carry wealth of meaning in relation to his position in this world. Scientifically speaking, these lines are the manifestations of the bio-chemical processes that have taken place during his journey through life. Right from birth to the culminating point of one's exit from this world, these lines are the very driving forces whether for good or for bad. The position of the lines, their origin and growth and development, the way they have formed themselves, the kind of life that an individual could possible lead during his life time. What should be biome in mind here is the continuous flux that the person is subjected to. For, we should realise that there is, that is called, changeability. It is precisely this changeability that becomes the pivotal centre of human living. In other words, man does not live in a state of isolation, much less in a static condition. There are many unseen forces that impinge upon his consciousness. of course, there occur as a result means, this is a case of mutual interaction in addition to the potential qualities inherent in any individual. Therefore, palmistry as a science and an are must be pursued against this background of conditions and consequences emanating from the wrestling circumstances between actions and reactions, between the forces of good and evil.

The Line of Sun And there are some who have success in wealth And some in war and some again in peace And some who gaining their success in health see other things decrease man can’t have all – the sun consumes itself by burning in its lap more feeble stars and those who crave the Hindu idol’s part oft crush their children ‘neath their gilded cars CHEIRO The line of sun otherwise called the line of Apollo the line of brilliancy or the line of success must like the line of fate be considered with the type of hand on which it lies for instance it will be more heavily marked on the philosophic, conic and spatulate. The same rule given in reference to the line of fate therefore applies to this. The line of sun may raise from the line of life the mount of Luna the plain of mars the line of head or the line of heart. Rising from the line of life with the rest of the hand artistic it denotes that the life will be devoted to the worship of the beautiful. With the other lines good it promises success in artistic pursuits. Rising from the line of fate it increases the success promised by the line of fate and gives more distinction from whatever date it is marked – from that time things will greatly improve. It is far more accurate and less misleading to leading to class this line as relating to brilliancy or success – as its name implies – than to call it the line of Apollo or of art. It depends upon the talent shown by the line of head and the class of hand itself to determine in what way the success is shown whether in art or in riches. From the mount of Luna it promises success and distinction largely dependent upon the fancies and the help of others. In this case it is never a certain sign of success being so influenced by the fortune of those with whom we come in contact. With a sloping line of head however it is more inclined to denote success in poetry, literature and things of the purely imaginative order. Rising upon the plain of mars it promises sunshine after tears, success after difficulty.

Rising from the line of head there is no caprice of other people in connection with success the talents of the subject alone being its factor but not until the second half of life is reached. Rising from the line of heart it merely denotes a great taste for art and artistic things and looking at it from the purely practical standpoint it denotes more distinction and influence in the world at that late date in life. If the third finger be nearly equal in length to the second the finger of Saturn a very long line of sun with such a formation makes the subject inclined to gamble with everything – the talents the riches and even the chances of life. The chief peculiarity of this line is that it generally gives when well marked a great tendency toward sensitiveness but when combined with an exceptionally straight line of head it denotes the love of attaining riches, social position and power. Many lines on the mount of sun show an extremely artistic nature but multiplicity of ideas will interfere with all success. Such subjects never have sufficient patience to win either fame or renown. A star on this line is perhaps the very finest sign that can be found. Brilliant and lasting success is in such cases a certainty. A square on the line of sun is a sign of preservation against the attacks of enemies in reference to ones name and position An island on this line means loss of position and name for the length of time that the island lasts and generally such will occur through scandal. On a hollow hand the line of sun loses power. The complete absence of the line of sun on otherwise talented and artistic hand indicates that such people though they may work hard will find the recognition of the world difficult to gain. Such individuals no matter how they may deserve honor and fame will rarely achieve it. The Line of Fate …and what is fate? A perfect law that shapes all things for good; And thus that men may have a just reward For doing what is right not caring should No earthly crown be theirs but in accord With what is true and high and great And in the end – the part as to the whole So shall all be in the success of all

So shall all share for the All –conscious Soul Notes e’en the sparrow’s feeble fall. ….And such is fate. CHEIRO The line of fate otherwise called the "line of destiny" or the Saturnian is the center upright line on the palm of the hand. In the consideration of this line the type of hand plays an important part; for instance the line of fate even in the most successful hands is less marked on the elementary, the square and the spatulate than on the philosophic the conic or the psychic. These upright lines are more in keeping with the latter hands and are therefore less important on them consequently if one sees as one often will an apparently very strong line of fate on a conic hand one must remember that it has not half the importance of a similar line on a square type as far as worldly success is concerned. This point is overlooked by many people though the point being the most significant point. The strange and mysterious thing to note is that the possessors of the philosophic, conic, and psychic hands which bear these heavily marked lines are more or less believers in fate whereas the possessors of the square and spatulate rarely, if ever believe in fate at all. The line of fate, properly speaking, relates to all worldly affairs to our success or failure to the people who influence our career whether such influences be beneficial or otherwise to the barriers and obstacles in our way and to the ultimate result of our career. The line of fate may rise from the line of life the wrist the Mount of Luna the line of head or even the line of heart. If the fate line rise from the line of life and from that point on is strong success and riches will be won by personal merit but if the line be marked low down near the wrist and tied down as it were by the side of the life line it tells that the early portion of the subject’s life will be sacrificed to the wishes of parents or relatives. When the line of fate rises from the wrist and proceeds straight up the hand to its destination on the Mount of Saturn, it is a sign of extreme good fortune and success. If the line of fate be straight and a branch run in and join it from the Mount of Luna it is somewhat similar in its meaning- it signifies that the strong influence of some other person out of fancy or caprice will assist the subject in his or her career. On a women’s hand, if this ray line from Luna travel on afterward by the side of the line of fate it denotes a wealthy marriage or influence which accompanies and assists her

If the line of fate in its course to the Mount of Saturn sends offshoots to any other mount it denotes that the qualities of that particular mount will dominate life. If the line of fate itself should go to any mount or portion and the hand other than the mount of Saturn, it foretells great success in that particular direction according to the characteristics of the mount. If the line of fate ascends to the center of the mount of Jupiter unusual distinction and power will come into the subject’s life. It also relates to character. Such people are born to climb up higher than their fellows through their enormous energy, ambition and determination. If the line of fate should at any point throw a branch in that direction namely toward Jupiter it shows more than usual success at that particular stage of life. If the line of fate terminate by crossing its own mount and reaching Jupiter success will be so great in the end that it will go far toward satisfying even the ambition of such a subject. When the line runs beyond the palm cutting into the finger of Saturn it is not a good sign as every thing will go too far. For instance if such an individual be a leader his subjects will some day go beyond his wishes and power and will most probably turn and attack their commander. When the line of fate is abruptly stopped by the line of heart success will be ruined through the affections; when however it joins the line of heart and they together ascend Jupiter the subject will have his or her highest ambition gratified through the affections. When stopped by the line of head it fore tells that success will be thwarted by some stupidity or blunder of the head. If the line of fate does not rise until late in the plain of mars it denotes a very difficult, hard and troubled life; but if it goes on well up the hand all difficulties will be surmounted and once over the first half of the life all the rest will be smooth. Such success comes from the subject’s own energy, perseverance and determination. If the line of fate rise from the line of head and that line were well marked then success will be won late in life after a hard struggle and through the subject’s talents. When it rises from the line of heart extremely late in life after a difficult struggle success will be won. When the line raises with one branch from the base of Luna the other from Venus the subject’s destiny will sway between imagination on the one hand and love and passion on the other.

When broken and irregular the career will be uncertain the ups and downs of success and failure full of light and shadow. When there is a break in the line it is assure sign of misfortune and loss but if the second portion of the line begin before the other leaves off it denotes a complete change in life and if very decided it will mean a change more in accordance with the subject’s own wishes in the way of position and success. A double or sister fate line is an excellent sign. It denotes two distinct careers, which the subject will follow. This is much more important if they go to different mounts. A square on the line of fate protects the subject from loss through money, business or financial matters. A square touching the line in the palm of Mars foretells danger from accident in relation to home life if on the side of the fate line next the line of life from accident in travel if on the side of the fate line next the mount of luna. A cross in a sign of trouble and follows the same rules as the square but an island in the line of fate is a mark of misfortune loss and adversity. It is sometimes marked with the line of influence from luna and in such a case means loss and misfortune caused by the influence from luna and in such a case means loss and misfortune caused by the influence, be it marriage or otherwise which affects the life at that date. People without any sign of a line of fate are often very successful but they lead more a vegetable kind of existence. They eat, drink and sleep but they cannot be called happy, for they cannot feel acutely and to feel happiness we must also feel the reverse. Sunshine and shadow, smiles and tears comprise the sum total of our lives. Position of Fate line The fate line is considered of enough importance in the science of palmistry. The fate line is not always seen visible on the palm. Moreover the fate line on a person`s hand does not originate from the same place. Whatever the origin is, whenever any line is seen to have terminated the mount of Saturn it can be termed as the fate line. But the position of the fate line on the palm has considerable influence on the way of life and the future of the individual. First Position: On the basis of the classification made by the palmists, the fate line belong to the first position is considered the best. This kind of fate line is well defined and faultless and terminates right at the Mount of Saturn. It is called excellent, according to the science of palmistry. This kind of line indicates that the person will have too many ambitions and desires; moreover he will not be able to

see the fulfillment of his desires in his life. This, over-long line spoils the completed works of the person. Hence the long, well defined fate line is considered best till the time it does not cross the mount of Saturn or does not originate from below the wrist. This kind of fate line belongs to the first position according to the classification made by the palmists. Second Position: According to the science of Palmistry the fate line belongs to the second position is also considered excellent. But difficulties seem to have occurred, when this kind of line touches the mount of Saturn on the palm. Such people are surrounded with worries even though they are courageous and capability to achieve success in life. Such persons get success in life with great difficulty. Third Position: According to the palmists, the fate line, belongs to the third position is considered as auspicious as it is distinct. In spite of its distinctiveness, if this line proceeds after cutting the life line then the person has to face many difficulties at the time where this line cuts the life line. Such intersection is considered dangerous. In this condition the person can get injured in dangerous accident become insolvent or commit suicide. Fourth Position: The fate line belongs to the fourth position is also considered auspicious according to the palmists. But in case of this fate line the rise of fortune can be possible only after youth. He has to meet hindrances in the field of education and is not able to get higher education. Fifth Position: Fifth position of the fate line on the palm is said to be favorable but if it tries to reach the end of the finger of Saturn, the person cannot achieve success in life. Individuals having such kind of fate line though constantly try to go ahead, yet he faces failure again and again in life. He can rise only with the assistance of the important person, who can help them in every step of their life. Such persons are found to make progress in the middle of their age. People with such fate line cannot make advances in more than one field. Hence their career is always one track. They are successful in the careers like painting and writing. Sixth Position: A person having the fate line, belonging to the sixth position on his hand is considered very lucky. Though the kind of fate line appears lucky, the rise of fortune of such a person starts after the age of thirty-six. He has been found to make wonderful progress during the age of thirty-six to forty two. During this period his life appeared to be very prosperous.

Seventh Position: The fate line belongs to the seventh position starts from the heart line and directly reaches the mount of Saturn but in some person this line takes the form of a trident; one end of which goes to the mount of Sun while the other towards the mount of Jupiter. Such a fate line is considered very auspicious. If this line divides itself into two paces near its end, the person will get plenty of wealth, respect, fan position and honor in his lifetime. Eighth Position: The fate line in the eighth position is considered of significant importance by the palmists. If this line is faultless, distinct and deep, it is certain that the person passes his childhood very comfortably. Moreover he is capable to achieve best education during his childhood. Such boys have sharp intellect and they are singled out for their independent ideas. Though they don`t get any special co-operation from their family, yet they try and become able to go ahead and gradually towards attaining success. Such persons can prove themselves as successful judges, writers or philosophers. The family life of such persons can be called completely happy. Ninth Position: the eminent palmists also consider the fate line in the ninth position excellent. Individuals with this kind of fate line are blessed with enormous luck or fate. If this line gets divided into two or three parts on reaching the mount of Saturn, the person becomes owner of inestimable wealth and can make huge success in life. Such persons with the fate line belonging to the ninth positions have more than one sources of income in his life and they live a life of pomp and grandeur. If the extreme end of such a line proceeds towards the mount of Jupiter, the person can attain high position. Such persons can make enough progress by means of literature and their career in the field of literature generally meet with success. If this kind of end is proceeding towards the mount of Sun, the person can attain full success by trading with foreign countries. He takes keen interest in religious matters. Moreover these individuals attain huge success and respect in the society. He became a name in the society. Tenth Position: Persons having the fate line belonging to the tenth position on their hands certainly reach a high position and achieve huge success in life. Hence the fate line in the ninth position is auspicious. Such a person is destined to undertake the foreign travel for several times in his life. However such people can achieve huge success as the high-ranking officers in the air force. Moreover such a person is also destined to achieve success. Such people are also courageous and achieve success by his own efforts though at a certain level supported by their fate. But difficulties seem to occur whenever the fate line appears broken. As the palmists have opined if such a broken fate line appears chained or zigzag in shape, the person has to face too many difficulties in life. On the contrary sometimes the

fate line gets divided into two parts; one end of which goes towards the mount of Sun the other end goes towards the mount of Jupiter, then the person is extremely fortunate. Eleventh Position: The fate line belonging to the eleventh position is very rarely found. The persons with this kind of fate line are blessed with exceptional traits of individuality and excellence, unlike the other individuals. Such individuals make success in life like the Venus. The society is influenced by their work and they are extremely responsible socially. Being socially responsible people with this kind of fate line play a significant role in directing the society. They lead a disciplined life and their thoughts and actions are all well planned. Having born in ordinary family such a person can make huge success and have the capability to live a life of prosperity and grandeur.

About the Simian Line Most people have two major transverse lines in the upper half of the palm. In Palmistry and Hand Analysis these are called the Heart Line and the Head Line. When the Heart Line and Head Line are fused together, only one major line is present, and it extends all the way across the hand from edge to edge. This is called a "Simian Line", or "Simian Crease". Medical references call it the "proximal transverse palmar crease" or

"single palmar crease".
HOW TO RECOGNIZE A SIMIAN LINE? A typical 'simian line' is characterized by the presence of a single line that runs across the palm of the hand. People normally have three major creases in their palms; however when the simian line is present there are (usually) only two major creases. NOTICE: One should be aware that the simian line can show up in many different manifestations (see the examples below); very often as a partly merging of the so-called 'heart line' (in medical jargon, the: 'distal transverse crease') and the so-called 'headline' (in medical jargon, the: 'proximal transverse crease').

The purest form of simian line is where only one line cuts across the hand and there is no indication of it containing more than one line. However, there are many variations between the two examples above. Some of these possible variations are shown below along with the rules for hand analysis. This is not a pure simian line but rather a strong heart line that has captured the head line. This person will operate with nearly all heart and emotional energy and will have very little logic and mental power for making decisions and taking actions. Emotions will strongly rule every activity.

This is not a pure simian line but rather a strong head line (blue) that has captured the heart line (red). This person will operate with nearly all head energy and will have very little emotional power for making decisions and taking actions. Logic, with little emotion, will strongly rule every activity.

This hand shows a piece of a heart line (1) and piece of a head line (2). Most likely only one of these pieces would be present on a hand with a simian line. Whichever piece is present would

indicate that there is some of that energy strongly affecting all activities. For example, if only the simian line plus a piece of heart line (1) was present then this person's simian line would have considerable influence from heart and emotional tendencies. A piece of head line (2) would lend considerable logic and mental influence. This hand does not mean there are two simian lines possible. It just indicates that a high simian line (A) or a low simian line (B) is possible. It is quite difficult to discern which type one has if the line is somewhere in between the high and low positions. In any case, the higher the simian line is on the palm, the more emotional energy is affecting all activities. The lower the simian line is on the palm, the more logic and mental powers affect all activities. The name "simian" was adopted many years ago and comes from the fact that some monkeys have only one crease in their palm. Approximately 4% of Caucasians have this line on at least one hand. Approximately 13% of all Asians have it on at least one hand. It is even rarer to have this line on both hands. A computer search of the medical literature reveals numerous attempts to link dermatoglyphics (skin markings) to medical disorders. At least fourteen chromosomal abnormalities are listed in the medical literature that have a high correlation (up to 84%) with the occurrence of a Simian Line. Down Syndrome is one of these diseases due to a chromosome abnormality. Does that mean that every person with a Simian Line is likely to have something medically wrong with them? No! There are many people with Simian Lines that do not have more than the average medical problems. [NOTE: An informal and unscientific survey on this web site for people with one or more simian lines indicates that the majority of the surveyors do not have more than the normal physical problems. You can see the results for all the questions in graphic form here.] Palm readers and Hand Analysts have observed over the years some common traits in people with Simian Lines on one or both hands. [This pertains to those people who have no apparent medical problems.] People with Simian Lines generally live their life differently than most other people who do not have Simian Lines. Not necessarily living better nor worse. Just living more intensely with an undercurrent of uneasiness. It is interesting that a number of well known people with a Simian Line have made a positive contribution to history. They include British Prime Minister Tony Blair (both hands), former Russian President

Nikita Kruchev, writers John Steinbeck and Henry Miller, to name some well documented cases. In personally talking with people who have one or more simian lines I have confirmed some common traits that they seem to share. I also did hypnosis with two individuals with simian lines and discovered an interesting connection to past lives concerning their simian lines. This is an ongoing project with me since 1985 and I have documented some of my more interesting findings in the second edition of my book, "Secrets of Hand Analysis".

Gift Markings in Your Hand!
At the International Institute of Hand Analysis (IIHA) a system of 'talent markers' in the hand is developed - they call the system: 'gift markings', or 'gift markers'.
Some advanced students of the Richard Unger IIHA institute have recently presented some basic introductions on how to recognize 'gift markings' in your hand (see the pictures below). The following info includes a basic summary of some interesting info presented by the IIHA Hand Analysts Pamelah Landers, Jena Griffiths, Peggie Arvidson and Baeth Davis.

The IIHA-system teachings included that the following hand features are 16 most important 'gift markings' (you can also find them in the pictures above):
 Gift marker 1. The Jupiter star (see point '1' in the LEFT picture above) SUPER TALENT: Leadership, super achiever | SHADOW SIDE: president's wife syndrome  Gift marker 2. The Saturn star (see point '2' in the RIGHT picture above) SUPER TALENT: Wealth generator, the midas touch | SHADOW SIDE: can you do this for yourself?  Gift marker 3. The Apollo star SUPER TALENT: fame, big spotlight, fortune in the arts, creativity | SHADOW SIDE: apathy  Gift marker 4. The Mercury star SUPER TALENT: clever, special ingenuity | SHADOW SIDE: cluelessness  Gift marker 5. The Moon star SUPER TALENT: profound intuition, flashes of intuition | SHADOW SIDE: atagneatin, alienation

 Gift marker 6. The Neptune star SUPER TALENT: master of deep emotions, deep understanding | SHADOW SIDE: stuck in the well  Gift marker 7. The Venus star SUPER TALENT: gift of joy and delight, love of life | SHADOW SIDE: wounded child, no fun  Gift marker 8. The Mars star SUPER TALENT: exceptional courage, no fear to be the underdog | SHADOW SIDE: anger/rage  Gift marker 9. The third eye star (see point '9' in the RIGHT picture above) SUPER TALENT: spiritual wisdom, psychic vision, seer | SHADOW SIDE: blindness  Gift marker 10. Medical stigmata (see point '10' in the RIGHT picture above) SUPER TALENT: gifted healer, personal growth consultant | SHADOW SIDE: intimacy breakdown  Gift marker 11. Lines of genius SUPER TALENT: gifted author, speaker, interpreter | SHADOW SIDE: going round in circles  Gift marker 12. The Hal headline SUPER TALENT: mega computer brain, multitasker | SHADOW SIDE: complicates life unnecessarily  Gift marker 13. The Pure Heart SUPER TALENT: unconditioned love, humanitarian | SHADOW SIDE: broken heart  Gift marker 14. The Persephone headline SUPER TALENT: holistic perception, spiritual guide, emotions expert | SHADOW SIDE: depression  Gift marker 15. The simian line (see point '15' in the RIGHT picture above) SUPER TALENT: intensity of focus | SHADOW SIDE: feeling misunderstood

 Gift marker 16. Line of clairvoyance (see point '16' in the RIGHT picture above) SUPER TALENT: life teacher, constant intuition | SHADOW SIDE: disillusionment

Do you have 'gift markings' in your hand?

Other than fingerprints, 'gift markings' (or: 'gift markers') are considered as SUPER TALENT markers - which are the most important formations that can appear in anyone's hands. However, 'gift markings' also show rare abilities that may block your entire life if under-utilised or unrecognised! Not everybody has 'gift marking' in their hands, however quite a lot of people have multiple 'gift markings'! Some comments & statistics presented by advanced Hand Analysis experts:

 Hand Analyst Pamelah Landers has writen a book about 'gift markings' (including an E-book version). Pamelah writes on her website about 'gift markings': "Approximately 35% of the population has a Gift Marking. There are 16 distinct Gift Markings, all line formations, that represent extra potential talent. Having the marking doesn’t mean you are using it. It does mean you are wired for it. Not using it causes more challenges in life than for people without Gift Markings." NOTICE: Pamela Landers explained that the 35% percentage relates to people who come for hand readings; she also stated that Richard Unger's estimate is that about 10% of people have one or more gift markings.

 Hand Analyst Jena Griffiths writes on her website about 'gift markings': "Gift markings indicate not only extraordinary talents but also where a person may be challenged or psychologically blocked." What are my gifts? Know that you are blessed with gifts of extremism, intensity and stamina. This is a tremendous gift. Hone it! How?

1. Get very clear about what you want because you have been given far more power than others to achieve your goals. When you want something you want it with your heart and mind. 2. Be conscious rather than unconscious about your gift and its shadow side (feeling misunderstood). 3. The more conscious you are, the more you can turn this gift into a positive resource rather than a handicap.
4. Make sure you have a worthy project or career upon which you can focus your intensity

or you'll start lighting fires in all the wrong places. Your hurdles: 1. Other people can't keep up. Be more tolerant and understanding of this. Try not to judge others for not keeping up with you. 2. You always do a lot more than others. Same as above; be gentle on others for not having your gift. You will always do more because you can do more. Love this about yourself but also learn to manage your energy and set clear boundaries so that you don't burn out. 3. Your energy is either on or off. All or nothing. People around you might see you as inflexible and may not support you as a result. Seek their support through mutual respect of each other's needs. Try to be conscious of when you are taking an extreme view.
4. Feeling and being misunderstood (the black box syndrome). Communication in both

directions tend to get scrambled. Ask for feedback, double check communication if you think people have misunderstood you. Typical examples: 1. Your intensity comes across as anger or frustration 2. people give their opinion and you hear it as criticism
3. You may come across as cold and aloof when you think you are being considerate

Always ask you listener, 'What did you hear me say?' or 'Could you please tell me what you just heard me say?'

 Hand Analyst Baeth Davis writes on her website about 'gift markings': "Not everybody’s hands have gift markers; however, for whatever reason, the majority of people that I attract are highly gifted. In most cases, they have at least one gift marker; many have more than one gift marker."  Hand Analyst Peggie Arvidson writes on her website about 'gift markings': "In my experience I find gift markings in more than 90% of the hands I read. Granted I don’t read the hands of the entire population, so it can be theorized that those with Gift markings and are suffering the penalty are more likely to have a professional hand analysis session."
Some Advice for those who have the Simian Line: Your ambition for success in business endeavors will be strong, as will be the tendency to shut out all else in persuit of these ambitions. Strive to learn how thought and emotion are separate parts of the psyche - allow them to disagree once in a while, and not be narrow-minded or judgemental in all your beliefs.

Discover the workings of the human nervous system in order to understand what assists life, and what harms it. In this way, work to eliminate your hidden drive towards self-destruction. You have a great deal of power at your disposal - always use it to your benefit. Stay true and strong. If you need help in dealing with your compulsions, many resources are available.

The line of influence
Other variants of 'the line of influence' - which is related to close people - are: 'the Guardian angel line', 'support line', or 'line of Venus'.

PICTURE 1: The line of Mars.

The inquiry on a 'line of Mars' - PICTURE 1
The 'line of Mars' begins from a hill of Mars and goes downwards along the 'life line'. The classical 'line of Mars' begins from the palm basis in an interval between the basis of a 'line of a life' and the big finger [thumb]. The 'line of Mars' always strong, deep, and, as a rule, or does not concede in force of a 'line of life', or is much stronger than it. And lines influence are much more thin and life lines are less deeper. Do not confuse them.....

PICTURE 2: The long line of influence beginning from a line of life in the early period, speaks about strong influence of one of parents (mother or the father) the given person.

As a rule, the 'lines of influence' (see PICTURE 2) designate the personal relation of the given spouse to second half. The more long and more deeply the influence line, the is more long and stronger than feeling to the spouse or the loved one. The person, with such accurate line, sincerely loves the spouse, empathizes, lives for it. Here it is necessary to note the main thing: influence of second half on the owner of this line - huge. If this line is absent or is very poorly expressed, present feelings to second half, the given spouse does not test. He lives with it because of a debt, children, compassion, self-interest. Lives by a principle: better with it, than with anybody. The weak line or its absence, specifies, that marriage in a life of the given person was insignificant event and especially has not affected his life. Such people, often, think of the life, about the career, than about the spouse more. But, it is necessary to understand accurately when this line speaks about feelings to the spouse or the relative and when this line specifies in character of influence of this spouse or relatives for a life of the given person. As in the second case is not love to the spouse or relatives, and a certain dependence on their acts, opinions and desires.

PICTURE 3: The line of mother (parents) + a line of the spouse

To understand, than that it is more in an influence line - love of the given person to the spouse (see PICTURE 3) or its influence (positive or negative) on second half, it is necessary to consider attentively and other lines on a palm (an influence line to the Destiny line, character of a line of Heart, a line of attachments, and so on). The time interval of a line of influence pays off on a parity to a scale of a line of a life.

If the beginning of a line of influence on a scale of a line of a life corresponds to the introduction into marriage the given line, almost on 100 %, speaks about feelings to the spouse, about its influence in a life of the given person. In other cases the given line, can specify in influence and other near relations: mother, the father, sister, the brother, the grandfather, the grandmother. From an expert I can tell, that lines of relatives begin, as a rule, from a line of a life and right at the beginning. And the further from the beginning of a line of a life the influence line begins, the likeness from mother and the father to sister or the brother, or to the grandmother with the grandfather and so on decreases. And for definition: who all the same influences: the spouse or other relative - it is necessary to look both other lines, and signs on a hand, to project time intervals on a line of a life and to calculate influence time, and on time of influence and a line arrangement for a hill of Venus, concerning remoteness from the Life line, it is possible to understand: who influences? The spouse or the relative.

Let's consider some variations in the 'line of influence':

PICTURE A: A line long, deep influence huge (feelings to the spouse - strong, present).

PICTURE C: The line in the PICTURE B: The long line of influence beginning from a line of a beginning deep, and then becomes hardly appreciable - influence was life in the early period, speaks strong, but then...? (feelings to the about strong influence of one of parents (mother or the father) the spouse were strong and present, but have gradually started to given person. become dull).

PICTURE D: The line in the beginning was thin and hardly appreciable, and then becomes deep and accurate - influence gains in strength, becomes stronger and stronger (feelings to the spouse were superficial, but also the love) in due course has come.

PICTURE E: The line strong and long starts to leave, in the end, from a life line all further and further - influence gradually vanishes (feelings to the spouse become dull and vanish absolutely).

PICTURE F: The line strong and long starts to come nearer, in the end, to a life line - influence gradually amplifies (feelings to the spouse amplify, become bright, mad and passionate).

PICTURE G: The line begins PICTURE H: The line strong and strong and long rests, in the end, long comes nearer, in the end, to a against the long line going from the line of a life and crosses it is basis of the big finger to a line of a fanatical love has outgrown in life - rupture of relations, because destructive jealousy and as of relatives. consequence: rupture of relations.

PICTURE I: The line strong and long has rupture - partners disperse not on long or partner influence interrupts for a while.

PICTURE J: The line long and strong, comes to an end with a star - death of the spouse or the loved one, made the big impact on a life of the given person. But I would not consider here death in literal sense. Often, this unexpected and very painful parting with the spouse, that, as a matter of fact, equally losses of the loved one.

PICTURE K: The first line comes to an end, then, with displacement in parallel, the second line begins on change of influence of one loved one another (feelings to the first loved one (the spouse) have died, and to the second person (the spouse) have flashed with new force) comes. By position of the second line it is possible to tell about quality of influence: the more close the second line to a life line, the feelings to the second person are stronger, its influence is more, and on the contrary.

PICTURE L: The line goes a dotted line, breaks and through a small interval begins anew influence begins and vanishes, again begins and again vanishes (feelings flash and die, then again brightly flash and after a while again die = effect of constant love).

PICTURE M: Two lines go is in parallel close to each other - the given person is broken off in feelings between two close people (a classical love triangle = the husband and the lover or the wife and the mistress).

PICTURE N: The accurate and small line departs from a life line, in an interval of a long line of influence - in the course of marriage the given person has not long, but a rough novel with the lover (mistress).

PICTURE O: The accurate line going from a line of influence through a line of a life - the spouse (loved one) makes strong negative impact on a life of the given person (in some cases, at presence and other signs, can specify and in rupture of relations, on divorce). Negative influence, such line, renders and at crossing of other basic lines: lines of a head, heart, destiny etc. Such line is called as line of an obstacle to something.

Lines on a hill of Venus designate the relations based on mutual aid. Horizontal lines mean hostile intervention of people with opposite installations. Vertical lines mean the relations based on mutual aid. The more vertical lines, the it is more at the person of friends, close contacts to close people, relatives. If such lines are absent, the given person does not aspire to get serious relations, does not become attached strongly to the partner, has no strong link with relatives. The influence line does not need to be confused with internal lines of a life which often name a line of Mars (read further below)
PICTURE P: Vertical lines on the mount of Venus.

Additional comments on the 'line of influence', 'line of Mars', and support lines:

In many books of a line of influence often name a line of Mars (see PICTURE 1), and it is not absolutely correct. Though at these lines also is much in common: an arrangement and some properties. And what are the general characteristics? - You ask. The influence line, as well as a line of Mars is a certain support in a life of the given person.
