Love Hurts

from the April 2019 Star Beacon


By T Stokes



This hand print was sent in by a lovely lady in the USA heartlands. She, a very beautiful woman, says that her life is always a mess and she has been hurt so many times. She has no trouble catching men, but cannot keep them.

So what is she doing wrong?

Men are very visual creatures, they fall for appearances. Shakespeare wrote: "What is the jay more precious than the lark, because his feathers are more beautiful?"

Remember, for a full reading both hands must be read, but for the sake of space here, we use just one hand. This, with so many lines showing what is called a "full hand," these people are always prone to anxiety and live on their nerves somewhat, and they tend to be highly strung, but are usually very feminine women.

She had known much hurt in her life. Her best friend confessed to having a fling with her man after last Christmas’s work party.

"It takes your enemy and your friend working together to hurt you to the heart, one to slander you, the other to rush the news to you." — Mark Twain

The lifeline (1) starts joined to the headline, but the connection is broken and bitty. This shows a difficult early life experience, an unhappy childhood, indicated by the straightness of the lifeline as it runs down the hand. Remember, the further this reaches away from the thumb, the stronger the constitution, so we see someone who was a worrier, with disrupted sleep patterns and with not a strong immune function.

The health or liver line (2) has been documented since Roman times as a barometer of general health, but particularly the gastric system. Hers needs some drastic TLC.

If your heartline is short as here and ends under the tall or Saturn finger (3) —especially if it is ragged with breaks as shown here — it indicates a person who can maybe at times be overly sensitive, moody, changeable and critical.

This is reflected in the relationship lines under the small or Mercury finger, where each one carries a split. As the line splits so do the relationships, and this is further enhanced by the Mercury finger leaning away.

Mercury rules all communication, from verbal to physical, and as this finger is standing away and not integrated into the other fingers, it tells a very sad story of a lady not at peace with herself emotionally or sexually. (4)

The small lines down the fingertips, especially the Mercury finger, tell of a thyroid imbalance, increasingly common now in pre-menopausal women. (5)

The Destiny line, which runs from the top bracelet line crossing the palm/wrist boundary, right up to the base of the Saturn finger (6), is remarkable as according to ancient Hindu palmistry lore, this marking is seen as someone who has very little free will; they feel pre-destined, and here on a mission, usually to learn some important lesson.

Ecclesiastes 3-2: "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven, a time to be born and a time to die, a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build."

The Seventh Day Adventists are the only Christian sect who have gone back to the earliest form of Christianity as taught by Christ, who is said by many to have been an Essene (who were vegetarian and taught reincarnation).

The thinness of the Apollo or ring finger and the thickness of the first or Jupiter finger tells us a lot about her childhood and how it has affected her emotionally. Her experiences mean that instinctively she sees men as bad. The thinness of the Apollo or ring finger shows us the emotional currents which should be flowing, have almost ceased, and this means it is her destiny or task in life to conquer these critical feelings toward men. This is put very well below:

"In life we tend to be judgmental and very often look down upon others without exploring deeper and finding out why the person is behaving

in such a way. The Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said, ‘It is enough of evil for a person to hold his brother in contempt.’

"A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the laundry outside. ‘That laundry is not very clean,’ she says. ‘She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.’ Her husband looks on, but remains silent. Every time her neighbor hangs her washing to dry, the young woman makes the same comments.

"Sometime later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean laundry on the line and says to her husband: ‘Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.’

"The husband says, ‘I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.’

"Lesson: If our windows are dirty, so will we see others as dirty too. What we see in others is indeed a reflection of our inner-selves! So it is with life that what we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look. It is easy for us to condemn, discuss other people, their lives and things that really doesn’t even concern us and we tend to forget—our windows may not be that clean after all! If we are good, we will see good." — Abu Muhammad Yusef

So the lady whose hand print is shown has been for counseling and CBT and is showing a more positive disposition all around, but her destiny promises other riches apart from love.

Shakespeare again: "There lives within the flame of love, the very wick or snuff which will eventually abate it."

I recommended kelp for her thyroid, oil of evening primrose; the Saxons used black cohosh for hot flushes; wild yam has been used for many generations in India (and skullcap) for menopausal depression. Ginseng is a great mood lifter and B complex—and in particular B12 Cobalamin and B6 Pyridoxine.

A friend who is close to the Royal family told me what they use, it’s called "Ed’s Mixture":

10 oz of organic apple juice and equal water

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

3/4 teaspoons of Steenberg’s organic Turmeric

Ginger and cinnamon

A fat clove of garlic

Shove in the blender, then pop in the fridge. Have about a third of it a day.


I am pleased to say that her new fella, although a fanatical golfer (I did tell her no one is perfect!), shows absolutely no sign of leaving her.

You will find plenty more information in my book, 50 Case Studies in Modern Palmistry ($20 from Earth Star Publications).

Please remember the healer’s motto: "If you look at other’s hands, Do No Harm."

Happy Palmistry"
