The Art and Science of Hand Reading

A comprehensive guide to the inner psychology revealed by the hand • Details how to interpret the entire hand--the shape of the palm and fingers, mounts, lines, fingerprints, flexibility, nails, and skin texture • Reveals the personality archetypes, strengths, and weaknesses connected with each of the seven mounts and how the rest of the hand modifies these traits • Explains how lines change and the decisive influence of the person’s own mind in healing defects found on the lines Palmistry is a science and a universal language. The hand tells a story about your talents, relationships, health, and how you feel about yourself. It reveals periods of ease or challenge in your life, and it speaks about your weaknesses and the traits you need to develop. As you change, so do your hands, reflecting the progress you have made. In this comprehensive guide to hand reading, based on Ellen Goldberg’s 40 years of teaching palmistry and the Western Mystery tradition, the authors make the powerful insights of the hand accessible in an inviting and user-friendly manner. The book presents the character traits and personality archetypes associated with each of the seven mounts of the palm and shows how to determine which are most influential in the nature of the individual. The mount archetypes reveal the lifestyle, love,sex, and marriage preferences; the best career choices; and the unique strengths and weaknesses for each person. The book also examines other factors that enhance the qualities revealed by the mount types, including the flexibility of the hand, texture of the skin, and the shapes of the fingers, fingertips, and nails. The meaning of each major and minor line is described in detail as well as the influence the person’s own mind has in healing defects and obstacles found on their lines. The authors also provide accurate timing guides for each line, making it possible to locate specific events and to see how your lines change over time. Presenting the hand as a guide to self-fulfillment, The Art and Science of Hand Reading incorporates correspondences to other mystical sciences such as astrology, Kabbalah, the Hermetic teachings, and archetypal psychology. It also includes practical examples and more than 600 illustrations to show how to integrate the meanings of each part of the hand to form a complete picture of your inner psychology and your ever-changing destiny.

Exploring the Foursquare diagram, developed by French occultist Papus, for highly accurate and detailed facial readings, she explains how to read the front face in combination with planetary shapes, which reveal a person’s character; the major facial features, such as eyebrows, which reveal personal inclinations; and the musculature of the face, including expressions, which reveals a person’s current mental state. Providing case studies, she examines how to apply face morphology in relationships and in parenting.

Every hand is the map of a life, revealing the past and the potential of the future. Both a science and an art, hand analysis can provide a key to assessing accurately an individual's physical and psychological nature. Mir Bashir's classic work is renowned for its comprehensive exploration of the art of hand reading. The text carefully explores and explains the two methods of analysis: cheirognomy and cheiromancy. Cheirognomy is the study of the shape of the hand, finger formations, nails, skin texture and the eight mounts of the hand. Cheiromancy is the interpretation of the lines and markings engraved on the palm's surface. Mir Bashir considers the seven major lines, as well as treating in detail the wealth of minor and unusual signs and marks. This new edition of The Art of Hand Analysis contains over 400 illustrations, providing the reader with a visual encyclopaedia to accompany this authoritative text. By combining careful analysis with experience and intuition, Mir Bashir demonstrates that divination through hand reading is neither superstition nor game, but a path to self-discovery and a wonderful way to satisfy age-old curiosity.
