The main vertical line running up the palm toward the Saturn finger (middle finger) is called the Fate Line. Sometimes it is referred to as the "Saturn Line", because it points to Saturn finger, and sometimes it is called the "Luck Line" because it deals a lot with success.
This line may be long and run the full length of the palm or just a short piece down to less than an inch long. Generally it is on the "heel" of the palm or it is missing from one hand or the other. In any case, the Fate Line is considered one of the major palmistry lines on hands.
If you have a short Fate Line, or no Fate Line, it means you feel free to take a break in the middle of any job and redirect your focus and energies to something completely different at any time. You don't feel the urge to complete your projects in one setting. Letting things go until tomorrow is easy for you to do. Fortunately, a short or missing Fate Line reveals that you are very easy to get along with and willing to play anytime and have fun.
There is nothing to worry about if the Fate Line is absent on either hand. The worst thing is that you may appear to be not very dedicated to serious things in life. You may be seen as a "Free Spirit" by your more serious friends who have long Fate Lines.
A missing Fate Line on only the right hand shows that the Free Spirit attitude is mostly associated with work or career. If missing from only the left hand that shows the Free Spirit is mostly associated with family and closest friends.
The Fate Line overall condition, length, and end termination points tell us about how you deal with accountability, self-worth, and completion of tasks and goals. These factors have great influence on your successes in life. A palm reader can pretty accurately tell how you stay on track to finish what you start (signs of a strong Fate Line) or how you tinker around doing a little on one thing and then easily slip off into the next task before completing the first task (signs of a short or missing Fate Line).
The condition and destination of the right hand Fate Line reveal how you approach your purpose in life, It shows how dedicated you are to completing tasks and reaching goals related to job and career. (Remember that the right hand is all about the outer world of public appearance, status, and career.)
If it is long, deep, straight, and with no breaks, that indicates you have all the necessary personal tools and drive to achieve your career goals. You work eagerly and diligently until every task and project is completed. You personally check and rechecked every detail to ensure success in all your goals. It doesn't take you long to figure out what has to be done so you can quickly get started and succeed.
People with a long and deep Fate Line tend to be "workaholics". They work on every project until it is completed. After they finish they look for more jobs to do. They seldom take breaks, and even on vacations they will find jobs to do.
A long deep Fate Line on the right hand is a gift for certain success in the external world of career and public activities. However, the owner of such a gift must remember to take good care of health issues and take breaks periodically to rest.
The left hand revels the inner world of family and personal needs. If your left hand Fate Line is long and deep that reveals you work hard to ensure your family needs are met. You don't waste time and energy on public projects outside your home. Your interests are mainly in your closest friends and family.
The origin end of the Fate Line reveals how one felt about self-worth when young, and how much power they felt they had to control their life. If the first inch (2.5 cm) of the line is fragmented and otherwise unclear, this indicates in childhood the sense of self was very confusing and uncertain. As long as the line continues to show those discontinuities, that feeling remains at subconscious levels and probably is affecting daily life in negative ways.
In the long run, these minor daily negative feelings and delays may affect one's future ("fate") in negative ways. Conversely, if the bottom end of the line is well formed then it indicates a good start in life occurred and this creates self-confidence to this day.
Below we will see how the Fate Line on the palm relates to the on-going "sense of purpose" in life. This means that the Fate Line condition on the right hand shows how you feel about your career and life outside the family circle. The Fate Line on the left hand (even if left handed) reveals your personal sense of purpose and dedication to family and those closest to you.
Below are four Fate Line origin points and the significance of each:
A: Original family values and training have a strong influence on career and sense of purpose in life. This person is influenced greatly in making choices in life by early family training and values. Today's conscious decisions will be strongly biased by family influence from the past.
B: Indicates self-reliance and resourcefulness in making choices about one’s purpose in life. Chance and family connections are not depended upon for career, what one does in life, and how time is spent. The challenge for this person is to stick with her or his own values, and live life independently from past or present family influence.
C: Career choices are made by chance and help from others. Family values and desires have little effect on the career and sense of purpose in life. Adventure and exploration are important values. The challenge for this person is to get in touch with her or his own sense of purpose and not allow chance and others to direct the course of life.
D: Intuition and psychic abilities are important assets in completing one's purpose. If this type of Fate Line is on the right hand, these intuitive and psychic energies can be used most effectively in one’s career. If this mark is on the left hand, the psychic energies can be used most effectively in one’s personal life and family.
Often the Fate Line ends somewhere in mid-palm. There is a special significance in two situations.
Fate Line Stopped by the Head Line
People with their right hand Fate Line blocked by the Head Line tend to become bored with tasks or jobs with a lot of rules, restrictions, and responsibility involved. They generally do not reach a level of success working for others but do much better working independently.
If this condition is only in the left hand, it shows that this tendency applies to relationships primarily and not to career.
Fate Line Stopped by the Heart Line
People with this condition where the Fate Line ends at the Heart Line on the right hand let emotions and affairs of the heart interfere with their career and completion of tasks. They let their emotions and personal relations rule business decisions. It is very difficult for them to make the tough career decisions that may result in someone else getting hurt. They would rather be hurt than hurt someone else. They don't feel free to be businesslike with others.
The challenge for people with this line is to be decisive and fair in making decisions and not let their emotions get in the way or to feel guilty. This will be especially difficult for them if they have "Thinker" or "Pleaser" types of Heart Lines.(Jump to Nav Menu)
