Palm Reading 101 – Just In Time for Halloween

Palm Reading for Halloween


Feeling V chipper this morning and full of excitement for the weekend!

Yeah, I know it’s only Wednesday.

J and I are throwing a Halloween party at our place on Saturday and besides the usual drinking games and dance off’ s I thought, what else could we do at the party?

I wouldn’t say that I am SUPER into astrology, tarot cards, palm reading etc. however, I have met with a psychic a few times and TBH…they have been spot on.

I know what you are thinking…it is super easy to generalize what’s  going on in a person’s life, especially after asking them a bunch of leading questions and by reading their body language.


Five or six years ago, my best friend and I were in Santa Monica where we sat down with a palm reader…in a nutshell she told me that I would be moving to the other side of the country in the next year or so. She told me, although I would be in the same career, I would be in a different area of it making more money and working my way up the totem pole. She told me I would meet the love of my life, who would then become my husband and she told me that I would be taking several big trips to different countries around the world and that I would find my life’s passion.

SO, all of these things (besides the husband part….we aren’t there yet!) have come true! The palm reader went into quite a bit of detail (which I won’t bore you with) with each part and although I am skeptical on the “science” of this, there is a part of me that really wants to believe it!

Anyways, to bring this full circle, I thought this would be a fun game to play at the Halloween Party, but it would also be fun for a bridal shower, bachelorette or even a girls night in or wine Wednesday.

First Things First:

Calm Your Mindset and Relax

Most people come into palm readings stressed about what the palm reader may tell them, not knowing that what is being said is not set in stone. For example; if there are health problems in your future you can adjust the line in your palm by simply making a diet change. I they see a deep stress line, it could be an indication to do something that will help elevate that stress like yoga, or getting a massage. By making positive changes based off what your “fortune is” you can change the lines in your palm. Your future is still up to you! A palm reading is simply a reading of what’s happening now, and predictions for your future if you choose stay on this track.

Put Your Right Hand Out

Believe it or not you can’t just read any hand to get the same information—your right and left are very different. The left hand is known to show the potential that could be, whereas the right hand shows potential that will be. Eastern countries look at the left hand because its lines indicate the emotional side of you—relationships, emotional struggles, etc.  In Western cultures, where work and career are often a key aspect in our lives and future, the right hand has more information about upward mobility, and provides a well-rounded reading of our lives. Clear lines indicate a characteristic or part of your life that is strongly developed, while less clear lines reflect things in your life that need more work or attention. 

Cleansing Your Palms

Before starting any reading be sure to clean your palms to cleanse away any bad energy and to neutralize your spirit. Essentially you are making yourselves a blank canvas.

Use a lavender or chamomile scented soap or lotion to evoke your natural relaxation senses.

So those are the first few steps in palm reading. Now it’s time to actually see what your palms are telling you.

To see your lines clearly cup your hand and put under a bright light and shift it around from side to side.

Now, get to reading!

Life Line

Your life line is one of the easiest lines to spot right away. This line starts at the base of your palm and arcs upward circling the ball of your thumb, ending between your thumb and forefinger.

Your lifeline doesn’t determine how long you will live but will tell you more about your general well-being and passion for life. It also indicates major changes in your life, like moving cities or major physical and emotional events.

If your life line is long and unbroken, you are a solid, dependable person who people can rely on. A long, strong unbroken life line also indicates the inheritance of strong, healthy genes.

A life line that is pretty straight, without any curve, means that you are cautious when it comes to relationships, and could benefit from instilling more trust in others. 

Head Line

The head line starts on the outside of your palm, on the side between the crease of your thumb and index finger, and ends in the center of your palm. This line represents your learning style, how well you communicate, and your desire for knowledge.

A curved head line indicates creativity, spontaneity, and artistic ability, whereas a straight line represents a more logical, practical and structured approach to learning.

A short head line might mean that physical achievements are super important to you—you might have interest in being an athlete or a dancer.

A sloped, curved line that connects with the life line represents creativity. A line that does not touch your life line represents an adventurous person.

And a deep head line represents being clear, focused and wise—you might be someone who is good at giving advice and should offer it more often.

Then finally a straight head line represents someone who is realistic and analytical—you’re a clear thinking and you always think things through.

Heart line

The heart line is the line that runs below the base of your fingers and ends at either your middle or index finger. This line will tell you about your emotional stability, romantic life, state of happiness, and the health of your heart.

If you have a long, straight heart line that ends under your index finger, you’re a rational thinker with a generally content love life.

A short, straight heart line, says you value your sense of independence when it comes to relationships and show your love through actions rather than words. If your heart line ends under your middle finger, you are a romantic and fall in love easily.

 Long and curved heart lines that arched up toward your middle finger, means you are passionate, freely express yourself and your romantic desires.

A short curved line, however, means you are more private about your romantic endeavors.

A straight, parallel heart line means you are level headed and realistic about relationships.

A broken heart line or a heart line that has other small lines crossing through it may indicate heartbreak or emotional trauma.

And a break in your life line indicates that you might have a big change in lifestyle in your future—whether that means moving cities, changing career, changing relationships, or all of the above.

Fate Line

The fate line is a vertical line that runs straight up the middle of your palm, from the base towards your middle finger. This line represents how strongly your life will be controlled by your destiny—in other words, how closely you will follow a certain path in life. It can also be called the career line because it indicates your interests and how your career might follow or veer from those interests as you develop.

A deep fate line indicates a life that will follow a strong path determined by destiny, which means you might have a strong desire to pursue one career and find success in doing so. This might mean you have a strong ability to start your own business.

If your fate line begins joined to your life line, it means you have had a strong path from birth, and that you will continue to follow your interests and possibly pursue a very successful career based on those early interests. You are self-made and have big aspirations early on.

If your fate line has a break at one point then continues on, it means you will have a change of career and then continue on with a different career path.

Several intermittent breaks mean you will have twists and turns in your career. Don’t have a fate line? Don’t worry—it doesn’t mean you don’t have a career. Absence of a fate line means you might change your career often, or have many different interests you pursue throughout your life.

Sun Line

This line, also known as your Apollo line, indicates your talent, popularity and success. It is also called the line of success for that reason.

Having a deep sun line means you will be very successful and that may even gain fame through your success.

A faint sun line means you are refining your skills and will work hard for the success you want in career and marriage.

A very clear sun line indicates good taste in art and literature.

A sun line that breaks then resumes its course may mean that you will have great success and recognition after overcoming past experiences. If your sun line is parallel to your fate line, it is a very good sign and means that you could gain huge success and gain a great reputation throughout your life. If you have an absent or short sun line, it means you are a hard worker, but should stop and enjoy life every once in a while to take some time for yourself.

So cool, right! Now don’t forget, none of this is based around REAL SCIENCE, and is just interpretation from palmists who have been studying this and astrology for thousands of years. I wouldn’t take any of this seriously, just something for a little fun and to start a conversation with.

Now get ready to be the hit of your Halloween party with this “parlor trick!”

I never knew any of this! It took me forever to read because I kept stopping and staring at my palm. LOL I will have to keep this in mind for future Halloween parties. Nothing exciting planned this year because I’ll be in the car moving that day BUT next year it’s on. I’m normally a Halloween junkie. Hope you have an amazing party! – Stephanie | http://www.theborrowedbabes.com
