~ Children's Lines ~
are divided in their view about the accuracy of child lines within the
palms. Some palmists insist that child lines have always proved to be
accurate, while others will say they have not found them to be
sufficiently accurate to warrant mentioning them. The illustration
shows two areas to look at. The first sign, the traditional sign for
children, is found as vertical lines around the marriage or affection
lines. These vertical lines may be above, below, or actually cross the
marriage line, and are believed to represent the number of children a
woman may have if she chooses. Strong lines are said to represent boys,
while finer, weaker lines are said to represent girls. I personally
have not found these to be accurate. However, I have found that these
lines do appear to suggest that children will feature in the life in
some way or another. A teacher, with or without children of her own,
may have many of these lines. So also might a woman who, though not
having children herself, finds she spends much time with children,
perhaps nieces, nephew’s, etc.
have also found that these vertical lines reveal an ability to
conceive, that the woman is fertile, and capable of having children if
she wishes. I have found that when none of these lines exist at all, it
is possible the woman may have trouble conceiving, and may be unable to
have children of her own.
far more reliable sign in the hand are the tiny influence lines which
branch down from the inside of the life line. These would appear
anywhere in the child bearing years, usually somewhere near the top of
the middle section. These lines are tiny and short, and represent
responsibilities coming into the woman’s life, which, during
childbearing years, could well be children. However, if a tiny branch
appears lower down the line, a new responsibility comes later in life,
such as looking after an elderly relative.
line often appears at the base of the thumb, which may be ringed in
places. This is called the family ring, and represents family members.
Any line stemming from this family ring and crossing the ball of the
thumb represents an influence in your life. Appearing high up, this influence could come from parents;
halfway down the line, it may come from a personal relationship or
partnership but could also be one’s children. If the line is strong,
and deeply etched, this person makes a big impact on you, and is called a loyalty line.
the line reaches right across the Venus mount but does not quite reach
the life line, this person puts a fair amount of pressure on you. If
however, the influence line cuts right across the life line, this
person will exert sufficient pressure to cause you some worry in your
appearance of an Apollo line (any line rising up the palm towards the
ring finger) implies that some contentment, happiness and fulfilment
will be felt in life. For a woman who is very keen to have a family,
this line could appear as a result of the happiness and fulfilment this
woman feels when starting a family.
