Ask Charla: Get Instant Insight Into Your Personality From the Palm of Your Hand

Posted on June 12, 2017

Did you know the secrets of your whole life are hidden in the lines and bumps of your hands? Palmistry is the ancient practice of decoding that information so that you can live your life to the fullest. You don′t have to be an expert chiromancer to find out things about your personality, though.

All you have to do is look at your hands for answers! Today we had a question that inspired us to look at all the factors when it comes to palm reading, and how the shape of your hand and digits can tell you more about your personality.

Palmistry (also known as chiromancy) is a form of divination where the markings on the palm of the hand (as well as the shape of the hand, length of the fingers, and more) are used to tell a person about their life, and what is likely to happen. Palmistry goes back several thousand years and is practiced by many cultures around the world.

Hi! I’m Charla Stone and I learned astrology and mysticism way back in the 1970s.
