Palmistry, or hand reading, is an ancient art, the roots of which have been traced back several thousand years to India. Its believed to have been born from Hindu astrology and was first written about when it was mentioned in the Chinese book the I Ching. Palmistry quickly spread all over Asia and Europe, whereupon Aristotle took an interest in it and passed the knowledge on to Alexander the Great.
He used it often to judge the character of his officers and closely read the lines of their palms.
The practice has since endured throughout the ages, yet today most people view it as pseudo-science and are quick to dismiss it as superstitious beliefs. Part of why people are so skeptical is that they don’t truly understand it and only know what they see in the media where it has been wrongly portrayed in the many books, films, and TV shows that touch on it. If you’re further interested in the subject, this video does an excellent job at describing what the lines and patterns on your hands signify.
However, the focus of this particular article is on the bracelet lines, which are also called rascette lines. These are the horizontal running lines located on the underside of our wrists, at the junction which separates the arm from the hand.
According to Metaphysics Knowledge, the more lines a person has, the longer they are expected to live. Also, the first line is more important and telling than the rest. If it is clear, unbroken, and deeply defined then the person can expect to enjoy good bodily health and strength. If it is unclear, broken, and weakly defined then the person is viewed as careless and weak. Most people have 2-3 lines, and a rare few have 4. In terms of years, the first bracelet line signifies 23-28 years of life, the second 46-56 years, the third 69-84 years, and the fourth represents more than 84 years of life.
Furthermore, health problems are often expressed through each of the bracelet lines. The first one differs for men and women. Women whose initial line is broken or curves up towards the base of their palm may experience gynecological issues, such as problems conceiving or giving birth. For men, if their first line is broken or curves up towards the base of their palm it means they may also have reproductive issues, or urinary and prostate difficulties as well. The second wrist line is used to evaluate a persons expectations of wealth. If it’s clearly defined, straight, and unbroken they can look forward to relative prosperity and happiness. The third line tells of fame and power. If it’s straight and unbroken that individual is, or will likely be, quite influential in their life. As to the fourth bracelet line, this one usually runs parallel to the third line and is seen as complimentary to it. Thus, if you are one of the rare few who have such a line, it strengthens and fortifies the fame aspects associated with the third line.
