The semi-circular line on your palm
leading from above the thumb
down to the wrist
. In palm reading
, it is generally read downwards towards the wrist. This line is not only about the subject's life span
, but also about vitality
, potential or past sickness
, and sometimes love and affection
. A long life line tends to indicate a longer life, and of it seems that a subject has two
life lines this can mean added strength
and resistance to illness (read the outer one as the real life line).
A mark along the life line, like an "island," a hole, or another small line crossing it can indicate periods of sickness. For example, if there is a circular blip near the beginning of your life line, it could mean that you had a period of illness or injury as a child. Also, if your life line tends to peter out near the end, it can mean sickness in your old age.
