Some of the common Signs on Hand in Palmistry are discussed below:
Transverse Marks: A transverse marking on the hand is an evil sign that nullifies the positive qualities of any mount it is found upon. Though a person may have the markings of a strong mount, these qualities can be reduced if it has a score of transverse lines.
Vertical Marks: Vertical markings are a good sign. If found on the mounts, they enhance its positive qualities and assist in terminating any poor signs also located on the mount. They are the opposites of the aforementioned transverse markings.
Grille: The grille is a point at which the energies of the hand disperse or escape out. If grilles are found throughout the entirety of the hand, the power of its bearer is constantly drained by vexations and imagined slights.
Cross: Crosses always denote troubles, disappointment and danger. Occasionally it can refer to a dramatic change in one's life due to a crisis or hardship. They should always be considered as an ill omen.
Star: The star is a symbol of good and sudden brilliance in a person’s life. A line that ends in a star signifies the greatest accomplishments possible; however, the star often carries with it an unpleasant price. The star is certainly a sign to be viewed with great caution.
Chains: Chains denote the different obstacles one may face in life. They signify a difficult or not so privileged upbringing during childhood.
Island: The Island is always a negative sign. It is often a sign of some hereditary evil, such as a heart condition or emotional stress. These misfortunes will last to the extent that the island is long.
Square: Square denotes an especial significance when covering an area that is experiencing turmoil, such as chained, broken or dotted lines. In this instance, difficulties will arise but the bearer will persevere and the crisis will be averted or thwarted.
Circle: The circle is a very rare marking in palmistry. It is an evil mark unless it is situated on a mount. If it touches any line, it brings inescapable misfortune to the line it touches.
Triangle: A triangle is a positive sign only when it stands as an independent mark. It denotes mental flourish and success corresponding to the location of the mark.
Spot: The spot is a sign of a distinct event or malady, though it often comes in groups that denote a chronic disorder. If found on a line; it typically signifies a temporary illness corresponding to the line.
Trident: A trident is a most propitious marking wherever it may lie. If it found on a mount or rises from a line, it will expound the qualities of that mount or line and draw additional power from the mounts or lines that branch on either side head towards. The trident is such a powerful symbol that it eclipses the star in beneficence.
Tassel: A tasselled line can often be found at the end of the lifeline; as the individual weakens and deteriorates with age, so too does the line.
Drooping and Rising Offshoots: Lines that droop from any larger line indicate a disappointment in life. Rising offshoots are the inverse of the drooping offshoots. They represent periods of sudden inspiration, fruition and happiness. It will draw upon the qualities of the mount that it is directed to.
Sister Lines: Sister lines support the line along which they follow. They protect and heal lines that are broken, crooked, frayed or side-by-side.
