Lines of Love, Affection, Romance and Marriage!

I would have a first look at the horizontal lines at the outer edge of the Mount of Mercury. (Marriage lines). I count these lines and say that the number of marriages or love affairs would be equal to the number of these lines (There are some exceptions).

2. In the Western Countries where sexual relations before marriage are the general rule, these lines are also called lines of association or lines of affection.

3. My experience and study tells me that these lines may indicate less about marriage and more about the sexuality of a person. That is why the lines are also known as the lines of sexuality. To answer a question about marriage, the other lines on the palm must also be studied.

4. The firmness or the prominence of the Mount of Venus also indicates the amount of sexuality a person possesses. But the Mount of Venus also indicates the amount of human sympathy or the vital force of a person, but these lines near the Mount of Mercury only indicate sexuality. Need to study the Palm from various angles including the mounts.

5. Before the Hindu Code Act came on the statute book, a Hindu male could marry more than once; the Hindu women had no such right. Divorce had no legal sanction in Hindu religion. But, if the husband and wife could not get along, they could separate. The wife went back to her parents or the husband left his wife and went away. Even though such separation did not amount to divorce, but was very much similar in effect.

6. First have in mind the traditions, customs and law. The lines and mounts when be consulted to answer questions about marriage, divorce and inability to live together on the part of the husband and wife are being mentioned here in the order of their importance. Be cautious for interpreting the marriage lines which are also called the line of sexuality/Love.


7. Marriage Line is a horizontal line which enters the palm from the extreme percussion edge of the hand. That is why one must make a note of its position while taking a hand print. It starts from the edge of the palm and ends at the Mount of Mercury.

8. A line reaching the middle of the Mount of Mercury is a normal one; if it stops short of that point, it is short and if it goes beyond that it is considered to be long. If it reaches near the Mount of the Sun it is very long. I however believe that one single line of marriage in a palm merely indicates that the person has attraction for a person of the opposite sex. Two such lines indicate that the sexuality would endure for a long time.

9. If such lines are straight and well-defined, it is indicative of the fact that the person loves his suppose passionately. If there is no such line on a palm, the prominence of the Mount of Venus tends to make up that deficiency. A thick little finger with a long third phalange has a similar effect.

10. If there is no line of Marriage (sexuality) on a hand and the Mount of Venus is also level under-developed with the little finger being short and thin, there is no likelihood of that person possessing any sex urge. If the line is there but is indistinct, there is lack of interest in marriage and sexual relations. If the Mount of Moon is prominent then lack of interest is accentuated.

11. If the first part of the line is deep and the last one shallow a person loses interest in love, but conversely, if the line is shallow in the beginning and becomes deeper thereafter, love tends to become more intense. This proposition may need study of money hands specially of person getting to meditation, spiritualism, detachment etc.

12. If the line of sexuality is near the Heart Line it is an indication, according to some palmists, of early marriage. But I interpret such a line as indicative of sexuality becoming strong during adolescence, but if it is near the base of the little finger, the libido tends to increase after middle age.

13. If there is a single line of sexuality and lies halfway between the little finger and the Heart Line, libido tends to be strong during youth. If the age at which marriage will take place is to be calculated, both the Mount of Jupiter and the Line of Saturn should be studied. If there is a cross on the Mount of Jupiter near the Line of Life an early marriage is indicated. Otherwise a cross on the Mount of Jupiter indicates happy marriage. If the Mount of Saturn is prominent, marriage is delayed.

14. Early and late are relative terms and must be interpreted according to an area or the society in which an individual lives. In India it is now customary for a girl to get married at 17 or 18, but in the West girls do not think of marriage before they are 25, in some cases, even 30. A marriage is late or early according to the customs prevalent in a region/country.

15. If there are two lines of sexuality, one near the base of the little finger and the other near the Heart Line, it signifies that sexuality manifesting itself during adolescence would continue till after middle age.

16. Some Senior Palmists measures the distance between the Heart Line and the base of the little finger s 70 years of age. They consider the middle point in this distance as signifying the age of 35. But some say that the space between the base of the little finger and the Heart Line signifies an age of 50 years. Half of that distance means 25 years.

17. The various palmists have reached the following conclusions about the line of sexuality.

18. If the line of sexuality is inclined towards the Heart Line, it indicates ill-health of the spouse. If the line so inclined intersects the Heart Line, a person is likely to survive after the death of the spouse.

19. If the line of sexuality does not interested the Heart Line but a branch of it does, it indicates marital troubles.

20. If there is a break in the line of sexuality, there is a tendency to live away from one’s spouse.

21. If the line of sexuality is inclined towards the little finger, the spouse of that person is liable to outlast him.

22. If there are islands on this line it indicates tension, ill-will, and desire for divorce or separation. But one must see the position of the Line of Mars. If it divides into two branches at the end, separation between the spouse is a certainly.

23. i) If there is a tassel or a trident at the end of the line of sexuality, love between the spouses tends to diminish as time passes. If the line has two branches, love is diminished to some extent.

ii) If the branches are going upwards it is free from all defects. If there are two branches of the line in the beginning which merge to make one line, love between the spouses tends to become intense as time passes.

iii) If the line of sexuality is longer than usual, love tends to endure for a long time. Conversely, if it is shorter, love tends to get diminished.

iv) A person with a wide and shallow line of sexuality lacks fidelity in love. If the line touches the Mount of Apollo, marriage to a talented person is indicated.

24. If there is a spot at the end of the line there are obstacles in the course of love.


25 If the Mount of Venus is prominent, a person is likely to marry for the physical pleasure of it and an early marriage is indicated in their case.

26. If the line of influence emanating from the Mount of Venus meets the line of Saturn, a marriage is indicated. If the line meets the Mount of Apollo (Sun) it is a happy and prosperous marriage. If the line of influence meets the Mount of Mercury, it is an unfortunate marriage that is indicated. The age at which marriage is indicated can be calculated from the line of Saturn.

27. If a person wants to marry for the sake of getting found from the line of Saturn. Lines of influence emanating from the Mount of Moon joining the line of Saturn also give an indication of marriage. The age at which marriage will take place can be calculated from the Line of Saturn. If the line of Saturn remains deep and distinct after the line of influence touches it, the marriage proves fortunate. But if the line of Saturn or the Sun becomes defective it cold turn into a misfortune. If the Sun line arises at that age, marriage brings good fortune and honor. Both the palms must be studied before answering a question on the subject of marriage.

28. A cross on the Mount of Jupiter is lucky and indicate happy marriage.

29. The Line of Mars too gives some indications about marital relations. It depends on the study and experience of Palm Reader.

30. The mounts also influence marital relations and love affairs. Those with a prominent Saturn are normally disinterested in marriage. If such a person has a developed Mount of Venus, he seeks only physical pleasure in marriage. He is generally devoid of a sense of responsibility that goes with marriage.

31. Those with a prominent Mount of the Sun have many expectations from their spouses. Tension can upset their marital relations quickly.

32. Those with a prominent Mercury or Mars tend to marry early. Those who have a prominent Mount of Moon are disinterested in marriage. They marry only if their lines of sexuality are very strong, failing that they are happy in a single state. This principle need to be authenticated by study of various hands with prominent mount of Moon.
