Everyone is in the dark about the future course. There are many sorts of predictive technology available to uncover the story of your life across various topography in the world. The Vedic astrology, Feng Shui, Numerology, Hand reading and physiognomy have remained the people’s cup of tea for years.
In this post I would like to put focus about palmistry and its authenticity of prediction as well as its origin.
What does the palmistry predict about you?
Maybe the art and science of palm reading bit different than the other science of prediction. The science of astrology does cover many areas of life such as health, wealth, career, business, overseas travel, love and marriage.
However, there is a glitch in astrological prediction. The prediction usually does not remain in the control of fortune teller. The reason no one knows, though it is not completely false. The highly successful and eminent astrologer can predict the human fate with almost 80% of accuracy. No fortune teller can foresee your destiny with 100% certainty.
While the science of palmistry can easily and scientifically as well as accurately predict your characters and tendencies. The health, wealth, love and marriage can be predicted very easily.
Even the suicidal tendency, insanity, marital separation or death of spouse can be foretold as easy as ABC. Even I have seen many hands that have suicidal tendency and mental illness. The intelligence, politeness, anger, generousness, cruelty, courage, forcefulness can easily be predicted on seeing the palm. Even the palmist who has thorough knowledge can foresee your nature, character and future without seeing you or even if your body is covered.

The person who reads the palm is called palmist, palm reader, hand reader, chirologist and hand analyst.
Division of palmistry
The study of palmistry has been divided into two parts such as Chirognomy and Chiromancy. The part of chirognomy deals with the shape and sizes of the palm, skin, colors, fingers and thumbs, mounts, nails, while chiromancy deals with the lines and marks on the palm. Both the sciences are interdependent.
It is altogether impossible to predict without either chirognomy or chiromancy.
