What do your hands say about you? By knowing the Hand Shape Meanings, you’ll get a clue to what kind of person you are as well as what lies in store for you. When receiving a palm reading, the palmist will not only look at the lines, but they also observe the size and shape of your hands. Don’t overlook any detail (the shape of fingers and thumbs, and the prominence of knuckles and mounds); even your finger nails may say something about you. Normally, a reading for your hand shapes has a tendency to divide into elemental types to help defining a person’s personality and temper.
- The Air Hand – Long fingers and prominent knuckles…this type of hand looks elegant in appearance on either men or women. The skin itself is often dry and a little pale, with long fingernails, long nail beds, as well as a long palm, the Air hands are considered as the most graceful shape.
In palm readings, an Air hand indicates a person who’s naturally curious and imaginative. They are social creatures which can deal with many different aspects in life on their own. Seen as the ideal bookkeepers, they have minds with the capacity to hold and manage lots of detailed information. However, internalizing the feelings, sometimes, makes these air-handed people cold and not emphatic.
- The Earth Hand – Broad, square palms and fingers…these hands have boxy fingers and thumbs, as well as square fingernails. The skin is coarse and thick in texture, and the color is ruddy and reddish; on the palm, there are a few deep lines.
A wide Earth hand represents a mind that’s often reflective in nature. It denotes a person who rarely talks, although not necessarily shy. The Earth-handed people are good with their hand – most of their careers or hobbies normally involve working with the hands. They are not emotional people as they often pride themselves in their pragmatic, down-to-earth, and no-nonsense approach to life.
- The Water Hand – Short, oval palms and long, thin, flexible fingers…the palms are soft, supple, and rounded in appearance, with high mounts. The shape of the hand looks like a heart featuring pink palm mounts and fingertips. Like the definition of Water, the hand’s energy is soft and yielding.
What your hand tells? A Water hand denotes sensitivity and emotional intelligence. People with this shape have an artistic nature associated with Water types. They are attuned to their own feelings and others’ feelings which sometimes may be tough for them to face with stressful environments.
- The Fire Hand – Short rectangle or square palms and short fingers…people with Fire hands have expansive palms, wide and generous, sometimes boxy in appearance, featuring wide knuckles on the ‘stubby’ fingers – a sign of a very stubborn nature.
A Fire hand indicates an energetic, go-getter type; however, the downsize to Fire-handed people is that they’re impatient – their passion are short lived. They find it hard to follow through with the things they begin, like new projects. They may have passion, but if it’s not nurtured, the ideas will soon die.
It may be hard for you to believe in, but the Hand Shape Meanings do tell something true about you and your inner self. For more detailed information, you know what you have to do, right?
