Brief Introduction to 5 Element Chirology Elemental hand analysis differs from traditional palmistry in that it uses different symbolism

and terminology. In cheirology or elemental hand analysis, we use the elements as our basic language or symbolism. Once you get used to thinking in terms of the elements, you can use them not only to describe every feature of the hand, but also to describe everything around you! Every feature of the hand can be analysed according to an elemental correspondence, or a combination of elements. 5 element chirology looks at the hand as a whole, combining and comparing all features. It takes a more analytical, scientific, holistic approach than traditional palmistry. Instead of using the planetary names, elemental hand analysis uses the five elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether to interpret all features of the hand at all levels. Cheirology mainly deals with 5 different aspects of human life. They are known as the five levels, worlds or realms. Each level represents an important facet of our being. Earth ± the physical level ± reveals things about your current health, predisposition to illness, diet, lifestyle, possible causes of ill health. Potential illness can appear on hands before physical symptoms develop, so can help us to learn about our physical body and prevent future ill health. Water ± the emotional level ± is about relationships, emotional and sexual needs and difficulties, patterns of interacting with others. Fire ± the creative level ± what kind of work and working environment suits you, hobbies, activities, career guidance based upon skills, talents, abilities, interests. Air ± the psychological level ± helps you to understand yourself, your character & personality traits, mental skills, educational advice ± which courses / studies would suit you. Ether ± the spiritual level ± indicates the type of spiritual or religious values, beliefs and practices which may suit you and assist in your spiritual growth. You can interpret every feature of the hand according to the five levels, so whereas in palmistry we tend to concentrate on one level, i.e. each line or marking having one meaning, we now have 5 ways of interpreting everything.
