Every hand has a dominant mythological archetype or combination of archetypes that correspond to the person’s dominant astrological signs (which may or may not be their sun, moon, or rising sign, depending on the overarching themes of the chart). Whether you’re looking through the lens of astrology or palmistry, when you multiply four elements by three modalities, you get twelve distinct types that comprise humanity’s metaphysical family. Each of the hands below has a fascinating and compelling tale to tell that fits its archetype perfectly. While describing each hand in intimate detail, I’ll link the archetypes to the person’s psychological patterns and behavior. Readers of my blog will come to understand how palmistry really works as they explore various hands and their underlying narrative.
