In this comprehensive guide to hand reading, based on Ellen Goldberg's 40 years of teaching palmistry and the Western Mystery tradition, the authors detail how to interpret all features of the hand, not simply the lines of the palm. They explain the character traits and personality archetypes associated with each of the seven mounts of the palm and 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 authors examine the shapes of the palm, fingers, and nails as well as the texture of the skin and the flexibility of the hand, factors that enhance the qualities revealed by the palm. They explain the meaning of each major and minor line and include timing guides for each, making it possible to locate specific events. They show how your lines change over time, reflecting the influence of the person's own mind in healing defects found on their lines. Presenting the hand as a guide to self-fulfilment, the authors incorporate correspondences to other mystical sciences such as astrology, Kabbalah, the Hermetic teachings, and archetypal psychology. With detailed sample readings and hundreds of illustrations, they 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.
