Do you have an ‘M’ sign on your palm? Palm readers all over the world have recently started debating what such a sign on your palm means. Many are now in agreement that the few people that possess such a sign on their palm, mostly on their left hand, are amongst the lucky few who have a heightened sense of entrepreneurial spirit and are also able to understand others therefore possess a higher level of empathy.

David Wolfe, a worldwide expert in palmistry said that in a few uncommon instances, we see the creation of the letter “M” in the palm of the subject’s hand. This is a result of the head line, heart line as well as the Life line creating an “M” symbol by the combination of all lines, this signifies fortune. The letter M on the palm represents riches. To have this line means the subject likes to solve mysteries and could be attracted to careers in the legal system or politics.

Chiromancy consists of the practice of evaluating a person’s character or future life by “reading” the palm of that person’s hand. Various “lines” (“heart line”, “life line”, etc.) and “mounts” or bumps purportedly suggest interpretations by their relative sizes, qualities, and intersections. In some traditions, readers also examine characteristics of the fingers, fingernails, fingerprints, and palmar skin patterns , skin texture and color, shape of the palm, and flexibility of the hand.

A reader usually begins by reading the person’s dominant hand (the hand he or she writes with or uses the most, which is sometimes considered to represent the conscious mind, whereas the other hand is subconscious). In some traditions of palmistry, the other hand is believed to carry hereditary or family traits, or, depending on the palmist’s cosmological beliefs, to convey information about “past-life” or “karmic” conditions.

The basic framework for “classical” palmistry (the most widely taught and practiced tradition) is rooted in Greek mythology. Each area of the palm and fingers is related to a god or goddess, and the features of that area indicate the nature of the corresponding aspect of the subject. For example, the ring finger is associated with the Greek god Apollo; characteristics of the ring finger are tied to the subject’s dealings with art, music, aesthetics, fame, wealth, and harmony.
