The Study of the hand, Chiromancy is one of the oldest of the ancient forms of divination, which has long been known as palmistry. This study helps us to learn about ourselves and our goals in life. In modern times, a new approach to hand reading has evolved (Chirology) which uses not only the study of the hand shape and fingers but also of the lines, markings, skin texture, palm ridges, and fingerprints.

Do you have a double Simian line? Or just one on either hand? On a small proportion of hands, the heart line, and head line appear to be joined into a single line, forming one long line across the palm, known as the Simian line, or crease.
The association of this line was once thought only to be with chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome. However, it is mostly considered a regular feature. In some recent studies, it is believed to show forms of neuroticism, hyperactivity, introversion, and sometimes delinquent behaviour.
While these attributes may relate to some of the people involved in the survey, they have also found that this line on someone with no physical defects or other behavioural problems, signifies a somewhat different, quite intense character; not necessarily a negative attribute as it would seem.
The owner of a Simian line can possess great potential for strong will and focus, many of whom are ambitious and driven, primarily if they have found their niche and had opportunities in their life regarding education and family support.
With a Double Simian line (one on both hands), they can show the opposite; struggle with their ambition and inability to have the proper focus. However, to hypothesise about this crease, look at other features of the hand, such as hand shape, finger length, thumbs, and lines; including fingerprint and palm patterns.
Typically, the owners of a Simian line are stubborn, unpredictable and easily misunderstood by others. They do however tend to possess an abundance of energy, some finding it difficult to relax, unless on a soft water hand with a weak or short life line, then the get-up-and-go may run out quickly.
While these people are intense, at the same time they can be very empathic and quite sensitive in their way. Usually very open-minded, yet cynical; nonetheless mostly what you see is what you get. They are either fully on, or fully off, (extremely kind, loving and attentive) or overly argumentative and cold.
The Girdle of Venus is like an additional heart line in the sense that adds extra sensitivity and intensity to the personality. In some cases where the heart line is absent, such as the Simian line, it takes the place of that line.
From a positive perspective, it signifies a compassionate and open-hearted character. It is good if found on someone in the caring professions because they understand the pain of others. However, it can also indicate an intense state of nervousness and quick temper if aspects on the hand show these qualities elsewhere.
The Girdle of Venus in its full form strengthens whatever characteristics are present in the temperament of the individual. It is a mark of heightened nerves, feelings, and emotions, whether they are positive or negative. If on an artist’s hand, the art would depict emotion well. In most cases, it is only present in sections. The meaning varies depending on its length, quality, and type of hand which has it.
If with a full Girdle of Venus on a soft water type hand, its owner can be tough on the outside, but in fact, they may experience the opposite on the inside. Their feelings are easily hurt, and they are quite receptive to what is going on around them. They can quickly become addicted to stimulants, and sad movies make them cry due to their empathic nature.
When unbroken and deeply etched, it may be a sign of selfishness and irrational or neurotic behaviour, especially if with a weak or broken head line. In the old palmistry, it was called the line of prostitution. In a modern view, flirtatiousness would be appropriate.

What is a long head line? The head line commences from the space in between the Index finger and thumb and usually runs horizontally at least halfway across the palm. If the line runs well more than halfway over, it is long. If almost all the way across the palm it is very long. This line is one of the most significant on the palm because it reveals a great deal about the essence of you. It gives clues as to how you think and manage (mentally).
It can show whether you are struggling or sailing along smoothly and how you make decisions. If you are looking for honesty, stability, intelligence, imagination and rationality, the head line is where you can find some of those answers. Visible signs of physical injury to the head are also possible.
A long line displays someone with a broader range of analytical interests, a person who seems to have more intelligence, however, this is unfitting. The theory may have come about because of the attribute of attention for detail and no-nonsense approach to life that they have. The very long head line shows a deep, sophisticated thinker, they tend to consider more evidence before making decisions and are more philosophical than those with a short one. If this line runs entirely across the palm, it gives obsessive qualities.
A short line is when it only reaches beneath the Saturn finger. It shows one who has more concerns about practical and routine matters preferring to concentrate on what is going on now without fussing over details; getting straight to the point. They do not like to waste time and so quickly apply what they know through common sense and get their work done quickly.
Success signs for business depend on the individuals' ability to focus, learn, lead and take action. Many hand aspects show and relate to these abilities. When it comes to reading hands, it's important to understand that some indicators can contradict others. But the following hand reading tips are useful in recognising the character.
The thumb has a great significance in reading hands; you can glance at a person’s hand and quickly get a general idea of their energy, drive, and basic temperament. So the thumb is a crucial part of character awareness, especially in situations where one is meeting someone for the first time because, in most business or personal situations, people shake hands to introduce themselves. What a perfect opportunity to glance at the thumb!
As with most features, finding balance in proportion to itself and how it appears to look on the hand is ideal. Nothing too crude and nothing too small. In general, a small thumb belongs to the day-dreamer; a very low set thumb belongs to the hands of a worker; an extended thumb indicates the strength of character and intelligence. The thumb is an excellent aspect in which to attain clues confirming other characteristics found on the hands.
A thumb, which opens to a wide angle, is mostly found on the low set thumb and suggests a more open and giving nature. An angle that is 90 degrees or greater, however, denotes an overly flexible or reckless nature.
What to look for when you need a partner in business:
A long pinkie finger shows someone who can easily express themselves. Their ability to communicate is one of their best attributes; with a good vocabulary and raw eloquence, they are social, influential and very organised. It also means that they are naturally good with money and do well in business; as well as politics, science, education, television or radio broadcasting. Writing, entertaining, and music often come naturally. Any subject that requires being able to convey their knowledge or express themselves using words. A thick pinkie is rare. However, if it appears thicker compared to the rest of the fingers or just abnormally large, it shows someone who may be rather talkative with a keen interest in business or money. These people are a perfectionist and potentially very shrewd. It may also be the sign of a workaholic. ~ Palm reader in

The water hand is also called 'the feeling hand shape'.
THE SHORT LINE OF LIFE
The short line of life in palmistry is very interesting indeed. The line itself is the most talked about line on the hand. Today I want to continue to discuss the short line and other interesting features it can have. The reason why it is an interesting line is that it is the first line a person typically looks at on the palm.
This line is also frequently the most prominent line on the palm as it arcs around the mount of Venus (the thumb ball), reaching somewhere near the wrist. Examining this line is essential in obtaining confirmation and timing of events because through the markings along the line, there is a capacity for seeing considerable changes.
The line can grow, alter, shift or even fade as circumstances transform over time. However, all indicators from the palm should be considered before making assumptions, as some factors offset (or support) the findings. To judge how a person manages their world; we observe the quality of the line. Ideally, it is well-defined without deviations or markings. In the present day, however, that is not likely to occur due to busy and demanding lives.
COMMENCEMENT OF THE SHORT LINE OF LIFE
The start of the line does not always commence at the same position, occasionally starting close to the thumb and other times as high as the Mount of Jupiter. If it sits high, it shows an ambitious and confident nature. Occasionally it can begin joined with the line of head and appear like a branch from it, which means a much more insecure yet family orientated spirit. These types show a good deal less confidence compared to those with a separate line from the line of head. The closer it is to the thumb, the less energy and enthusiasm there is for life.
The thing I would like to mention is that a short line, it does not mean a short life. It shows someone who is not so much connected to their family or ancestors. They are people who move around a lot and not like to stay in one place for long. They often end up travelling, unless they find someone who is able to 'bring' them down to earth. They are not set in their ways and routine is something they probably don't do much. The length and prominence of the line refer to the quality of life, the Constitution, family roots, security and the get-up-and-go of the individual. A long steady line shows vitality, routine, stability, motivation and someone who perhaps does not need to depend on anyone or anything.
