Palmistry is also known as Chirology. Palmistry is based on the fact that your palm is your personality. People rarely realise that they have a full-scale map of their potential and personality on their own hand. Apart from being a fascinating stud, palmistry can help in the guidance for vocations, compatibility, partnerships, diagnosis of health and psychological ailments, etc. It is also known as Chiromancy, and is the basic art of foretelling the future or art of characterization through the study of the palm. Many parts of the world follow this practice, but with many cultural variations. People practicing palmistry are known as palmists, palm readers, hand readers, hand analysts, or chirologists.

This art and science of palm-reading dates back to the ancient Hindu history of about 4000 to 5000 years. Many hindu sages like Garga, Gautama, Bharadwaja, Agastya, Bhrigu, Atri and Kashyapa, Narada, propagated this science. MaharshiValmiki is known to have written a book of Male palmistry named, "The Teachings of ValmikiMaharshi on Male Palmistry". This art of reading the hand, spread to China,Tibet, Egypt, Persia and Greece. Many ancient communities like the Hindus, Sumerians, Tibetans, Hebrews, Babylonians, and Persians were known to have great interest and knowledge in the practice and study of palmistry. Like the differences in shapes, features and constitution of people, the lines of the hand too are unique to each individual. Renowned palmist Cheiro is believed to have learnt the art in India by reading the ancient scriptures. Aristotle was of the opinion that lines on the hand of a person are there for a reason. They represent a man's own individuality emanating from the heavenly influences. Aristotle, Hippocrates and Alexander the Great have made the palmistry practice immensely popular. Hippocrates is known to have used palmistry in the aid of his clinical procedures. Modern palmists combine the traditional procedures of predictions along with the other techniques like holistic healing and psychology. Many contemporary palmists claim that hands can change over time, and repeated readings may be necessary because of this reason.

Palmistry evaluates the character of a person or his/her future life by reading the palm. The various lines on the palm represent different segments of our life, and predictions or interpretations are made based on the bumps or mounds on the palm, the lines, their relative sizes and intersections. They can also take into consideration the shape of the palm, its skin texture, colour and flexibility for their predictions. Dominant hand is the one that is used the most through a conscious mind. The other hand is known to be the subconscious hand. In certain cultures and traditions, the other hand is considered to carry the family traits or hereditary traits. And, depending on these beliefs the palmists make predictions. Each hand has its own significance and it is customary to consider that left hand shows the individual's potential, while the right hand shows the personality. Left hand is controlled by the right side of the brain, which controls the pattern recognition, and relationship understanding. It reflects the natural self, inner person and lateral thinking of a person. The left part of the brain controls the right hand, and has control over the language, logic, and reasoning. It is also known to be a reflective of the outer person, education, experience, objective self, influence of the social environment, and linear thinking.

Palmists also consider the shape of the hand, lines of the fingers and palms, prominence of knuckles and various other attributes. Hand shapes are categorized into four or ten major types based on the culture and traditions. They correspond to the temperaments and classical elements. The shape of the hand is the indication of the character traits of a person. Most common classification of the hand shape is determined by the Earth, Air, Water and Fire. The quality and the number of lines is also sometimes included in the analysis of the hand shape in some traditions. Usually, Water and Earth hands have fewer and deeper lines, while Fire and Air hands show more lines with less prominent definition. Some of the important lines are the heart line, life line, fate line, head line and the simian crease.

Palmistry is an ancient science that originated in India.

Hindu Palmistry has been amazingly mystifying and the hidden secrets have not been fully explored till now, although there have been detailed books on the subject. The works of Western Palmists have been valuable as well.

Palmistry is considered to be the cryptic code of life. Its believed that a soul takes birth with his/her destiny/life plan written on the hands. The brain stores the information of our previous births and thus the life plan for the current life. According to science, the nerves carry currents and messages from the brain to the hands and palmists believe these same nerves carry the destiny crypted code from our brain to our hands, even though we do not remember our past births or our exact present life plan, probably because of the Karmic cycle.
