Palmistry, Hand and Finger Combinations

26557466thbBefore reading the palm, look at the fingers to see if they’re short or long. This isn’t always easy to gauge when you’re just beginning, but a little practice will enable you to assess the finger length at a glance. The fingers are considered long if they can fold back and touch a spot at least seven-eights of the way along the palm. With experience you’ll be able to look at someone’s palm and instantly know if the fingers are long or short. The problem comes when you’re first learning and find a hand with fingers that seem to be neither long nor short. Fortunately, we can cover that situation as well.

Long Fingers. If the fingers are long, the person pays attention to detail and you could say: “You enjoy complex work. You’re patient and enjoy all the fiddly bits – you like the details in things. Your work must be very consuming and gratifying. If it’s too simple you lose interest very quickly.”

Short Fingers. Someone with short fingers is almost the opposite. They’ll be more interested in the broad strokes rather than the details and won’t have much patience. You could say: “You’re always busy. Sometimes you may start something new before you’ve finished the last task. You often have several things on the go at the same time. You tend to want everything right now, so patience is not your strong point. Your impulsiveness has gotten you into trouble in the past”.

Medium Length Fingers. Naturally, someone with fingers that are neither long nor short will fall into a middle category. You could say: “At times you can be very patient. However, at other times you’re inclined to jump first and think later. If something really interests you, you want to get right down to the bottom of it and work it out. If it’s only a passing interest, you’re more inclined to skim over it and not learn it in much detail.”
