Introduction and history

Each palm is unique as the finger prints on each individual vary from the other. Even identical twins do not possess the same finger prints. It is because of this uniqueness, Palmistry has emerged as one of the most-sought after methods to know the future.

This is also one of the ancient methods of predicting the future and its history dates back to 384–322 BCE. Palmistry has been prevalent in India, Tibet, China, Persia, Egypt and some parts of Europe. There is a strong belief that Palmistry originated in India while Chinese and Romas (gypsies) also argue that they are the founders of this astrology.

What is palmistry?

While some believers of Palmistry say that only the dominant hand of the individual, which can either be right or left, should be used to foretell, there is also a belief among certain sections of people that it should be right hand for men and left hand for women.

Scientifically, the left hand is controlled by the right side of the brain and this helps in predicting pattern recognition, and relationship understanding and the right hand is controlled by the left side of the brain which helps in logic, reason, and language.
