We can see the Palm as a pictorial representation of the Chakras, which are the Energy Centres,
present along the axis of the Spine. This is a simple, yet straight forward way of finding out the
affected Chakras. Those who are new to the Chakra fundamentals, kindly refer the following
diagrams and the description below :
|1) Muladhara Chakra
A person with well-balanced Muladhara Chakra will be well-grounded, stable and a reliable person. His need
for money and material comforts would be normal. He would be materially independent.
In Palm, Muladhara Chakra can be related to
a) the Fate line (especially the beginning)
b) the Saturn finger (middle finger)
c) the first Bracelet
Relating the Fate Line with Muladhara Chakra :
If the base of the Fate Line is missing/ broken or it has
any defects upon it, it hints towards an affected Muladhara Chakra. In Palmistry, the beginning of a Fate Line
corresponds to availability of sufficient basic needs of a person, his financial situation, his focus and sincerity
during the formative years. If, this part of the Fate Line is found to be defective in some way, then, the person
,may have to face problems in these areas. Survival of the person becomes a challenge, since grounding is not
If the Fate Line is thin, deep and long, we can find a stable person in action.
( Balanced Chakra energy) . There will be a normal need for money and not
However if the Fate Line is too thick, it makes the person fixed, immobile and
stubborn. More emphasis will be on money and material things. Sometimes the
thin line, gradually becomes too thick and, that is the time-period, when the
person will start gaining too much weight. (Excess Chakra energy).
HEALTH : If the Fate Line is overall too deep and more Reddish in colour, than the
other lines, we find the person to suffer from constipation. If the Fate Line is broken
in one or two places and especially near the Head Line below the Mount of Saturn , we
find the person to suffer from issues related teeth, bones and spine.
Relating the Saturn finger with Muladhara Chakra :
When the Saturn finger has a bend (fig3), it implies a person, who is highly critical, both about the self
and others, in the process, losing his peace of mind,
calmness and stablility. Saturn finger is called as the
Balance Wheel in Palmistry. (Deficient Chakra
Relating the first Bracelet with Muladhara
Generally there are four bracelets in a palm
(refer fig.4) . In some cases, three or some times,
only two Bracelets would be clearly visible. Each
Bracelet signifies 30 years of longevity and if all four
Bracelets are well marked the person is supposed to
live, right up to ripe old age.
Among these, if the first Bracelet is broken it signifies
the first quarter of the persons life (similar to the
meaning conveyed by a defective beginning of a Fate
Line will have challenging first quarter of life) . Due
of lack of nurturing he may feel unloved or abandoned.
HEALTH : Physically if the first Bracelet is found to
be defective - broken or especially if it has an , upward
bow like curve, towards the palm, fig. 4 then there
will be troubles in child birth conception.
Remedy : Mudra therapy is suggested for people
with defective lines ( Defective Chakras) . One example is elaborated here. A person with weak Fate
Line (Muladhara Chakra) is suggested to sit in
meditation, keeping his hand posture in Vayu Mudra .
It is also referred as ‘Anguli Mudra for Fate’ by Prof.
Dayanand Verma, who was honoured with the YOGA
RATNA award by the world conference on yoga held
in 1986. This Anguli Mudra has to be practised for 15
minutes in the morning and evening regularly.
How to do Vayu Mudra ?
The Index finger of the
Palm should touch the bottom portion of the thumb
(Mount below the thumb). By this hand posture, the
air element is reduced , thereby stabilising the ever
oscillating mind , which otherwise makes a person
less serious and hence directionless. (refer fig.5).
We cannot expect overnight miracles, but, after few
years of following this Mudra regularly, you will find,
some improvement in your Fate Line, slowly, but
surely. Additional benefits of doing this Mudra:- Vata
related diseases like joint pain, gout, frozen shoulders,
rheumatic pains, vertigo and ear related problems,
which are results of defective Saturn are also cured.
|2) Swadhisthana Chakra
A person with well-balanced Swadisthana Chakra has
a feeling of wellness, abundance, pleasure, and joy.
In palm, i relate the Swadisthana Chakra to :
a) the Life Line
b) the Mount of Venus
c) the Mount of Moon
Relating the Life Line and Mount of Venus to
Swadisthana Chakra : When the Life Line is full and
in the shape of a semi circle ( refer fig.6) , along with
a good Mount of Venus , the person is blessed with
an accommodating nature. You can find him to be
always cheerful and happy. He is blessed with good
health in abundance, which will help him in all
activities. He is highly creative. (Balanced energy)
If it is otherwise, i.e. , if he has a straight Life Line,
his nature is not so flexible, and all associated problems
associated to fixity of nature starts, due this. You may
find him to be complaining about faults of others,
instead of looking at his own.
If the Life Line is broken or has an island or has an
axe-line very near to it or if it is incomplete – especially
in the middle , then the life of the person becomes
challenging either in the domestic front or in the health
front. If there is a mole or a red spot upon the Mount
of Venus along with a defective Life Line, he may
have to face health issues related to reproduction
organs and/ or urinary problems. Psychologically,
there would be a fear of change in him, be it change
in life situation or place. It is because, the vital life
energy (from Mount of Venus) leaks through the
defective Life Line and energy gets dissipated.
If the Life Line is too deep and thick with
overdeveloped Mount of Venus, it is not a good sign
to have. Then everything will go in excess, be it food
, drinks or sex. Care should be given , that the person
does not get hooked to any addictive habits.
Relating the Life Line and Mount of Moon to
Swadisthana Chakra :
A defective Life Line along with a defective Mount
of Moon , psychologically gives imaginative fears and
pushes a person to depression. Sometimes, he may
get in to addictive habits, due to this. Physical problems
related to reproduction organs and digestive systems
are a possibility.
|3) Manipura Chakra
A well-balanced Manipura Chakra energy makes a
person intelligent, outgoing, cheerful and have self-respect. He enjoys good food.
In palm, i relate Manipura Chakra to the
a) Head Line and the Thumb.
b) Mount of Jupiter and its corresponding finger, the Index finger.
If the Head Line is clear and strong along with a well
developed Mount of Jupiter and a good Thumb, then
the person is able to assert himself and succeed in
life, using his good mental ability and confidence. If
this line is weak, then the person is not sure about
himself and success always eludes them. It results in
loss of money also.
If the Head Line is widely separated from the Life
Line, it hints to excess of chakra energy. Such people
are too independent, yet super-sensitive to others’
criticism and that is one reason, that such formation
makes a person to often enter into arguments and
fights, even with a mild triggering factor. Same is the
case, when the Head Line is too long. Anything of
excess is bad. A very lengthy Head Line makes a
person very stubborn and he comes upon with strong
personal opinions. Similar is the case, when the finger
of Jupiter is excessively long. The healthy amount of
ego, becomes excessive and the person becomes
If the Head Line is chained, broken or with
islands,(fig.7) then it hints towards deficient Chakraenergy.
Such persons are found to be diffident, timid
and indecisive . They find it difficult to assert
themselves with confidence. Same is the case with a
weak Thumb. They can be easily manipulated.
HEALTH : A weak
Jupiter mount gives
rise to physical issues
such as digestive and
liver related troubles.
obstructing the lines
also block the
Chakra-energy. It is
a well known fact in
Palmistry, the worry
lines from the Lower
Mars area obstructing the Head Line, besides giving
mental tensions, gives rise to acidity and stomach
ailments. It is due to the obstructed Manipura chakra.
|4) Anahata chakra
A well balanced Anahata chakra energy relates to an emotionally well balanced person. He is
compassionate and has empathy. He can lovingly
forgive and forget.
In Palm, the Heart Line and the Mount of Venus,
reflects the status of Anahata Chakra.
A well-developed Venus mount together with a wellformed
Heart Line with forks at its end, below the
Mount of Jupiter, shows capacity for universal love,
generous nature and empathy.
A very long Heart Line going to the outer edge of the
palm crossing the Mount of Jupiter , shows one to be
too caring and self-sacrificing. Sometimes, it becomes
restrictive and possessive, making the person
If the Heart Line is short and it ends below the Mount
of Saturn itself, the person could be too rational, cold,
self-centred, materialistic and calculating. A weak
Mount of Venus with a defective (breaks ,chains,
islands) Heart Line (fig .8) shows that this chakra is
functioning poorly. Probability of unhappy relationships
is there. The person will find it difficult to forget and
HEALTH : Physical issues related to heart and BP
arises , due to imbalance of this chakra.
|5) Visuddhi Chakra:
A person with balanced Visuddhi Chakra has excellent
sense of timing, pleasant voice, musically and
artistically inspired. He can be a good speaker.
In Palmistry, Visuddhi Chakra corresponds to the Line
of Mercury, the Little finger and the Mount of
A well-marked Line of Mercury (fig 8a) and a lengthy
little finger , signifies a good sense of timing, keen
business acumen, communication skills and excellent memory. He also knows the knack of persuading
If it is having defects, then the person may have poor
concentration and lack of communication skills. They
could be very timid and overly shy, unable to express
their feelings freely. Obstructing lines in this chakra
can indicate that the person is not frank , with his
feelings. He may not be speaking the truth.
Over development of the Little finger, especially the
lower phalange , gives excessive sexual interest and
HEALTH: Imbalance of Visuddhi Chakra energy
gives rise to physical issues related to, thyroid and
parathyroid glands, larynx , speech, throat and ears.
|6) Ajna Chakra
A balanced Ajna chakra energy gives inspiration,
insight, telepathy, access to the Higher Self (Guru)
and realization of full capability.
In Palmistry, i relate the Ajna Chakra ,to the Sun Line.
Its clear presence (fig.9) , especially with a wonderful
trident or fork at the end, will bless the person with
wonderful creativity and happiness. William Benham
calls the Sun Line as the ‘ Line of capability’ . The
presence of this line, makes one, realise his potential.
Many associate the Sun Line, only to name and fame,
which is not so. It is more an indication of a persons
inherent talent and abilities. More importantly, it is a
sign of Spiritual awaremenss and a sense of deep
personal fulfilment. One who possesses this line , which
is also known as ‘Purva Punya rekha’ is a happy soul,
in peace with the Self.
Stars in any of the Chakra regions indicate
extraordinary abilities, related to the corresponding
chakra. A star upon the Ajna Chakra section indicates
exceptional powers of insight.
Any defect in the Sun Line, say an island , breaks or
cuts by other influence lines gives extreme sensitivity to
the feeling of others, due to which the person loses his
peace of mind. Whenever the Sun Line, is disturbed
above the Heart Line , it gives , mental unrest during the
old age. I have confirmed this, in numerous cases.
Absence of this line, implies, that this chakra is weak.
The person is still engrossed in the materialistic world
and less aware of the higher Spiritual realms.
HEALTH : Imbalance of Ajna Chakra energy gives
rise to physical issues related to, seizures, blindness, brain
tumor / hemorrhage /stroke, neurological disturbances.
|7) Sahasrara Chakra
Balanced Sahasrara Chakra energy makes one , open
to the Divine force and he is able to work miracles. He
can transcend the laws of nature and has awareness of
death. Possibility of psychic gift and ability to sense divine
In Palmistry, Sahasrara Chakra relates to the presence
of a complete Line of Saturn , from base to top, along
with all the other lines mentioned above , in good
condition. Presence of Vriksha shakha Yoga ( lines like
the branches of a tree), gives us a hint , of a wise person.
It is the three lines going from the wrist, towards the fingers, namely the Fate Line , Sun Line and the Mercury
line. In combination with a circular Life Line , they look
like a branch of a tree.
The flawless path of the Fate Line from bottom to top
with support from other lines , represents, the rising of
Kundalini energy from Muladhara (base) to the
Sahasrara (crown) and an almost god-like sense of
completion. We rarely observe such composition of a
good Line of Saturn along with all the other lines and
mounts, equally well developed. ( refer fig.1b)
Equally rare and difficult is to see such really
REALIZED human being(s) here....
HEALTH : Imbalance of Sahasrara Chakra energy gives
rise to issues related to upper skull , right eye, mystical
depression, chronic exhaustion that is not linked to a
physical disorder, migraines, extreme sensitivities to light,
sound, and other environmental factors.
I feel it would be much easier to find out the
imbalanced Chakra through palms, as it is , openly
written for you to read on your very own palm,
right in front of you ! Interpretation is simple .
Other palmists may have different opinions and ideas
about how they relate the Chakras with the palm. I have
taken a simple and straight forward , method of dealing
with the problem, which we can do, by a mere glance of
a palm. Say, a defective Heart Line , implies a defective
Anahata Chakra, which, almost always ,means
disappointments in relationships. Most often, it would be
because , the persons own inability to forgive and forget.
If this point is instantly found out and given
treatment through Mudra Therapy or Crystals/
Colours or as other Chakra specialists do,
problems can be nipped in the bud and the world
would be a much happierr place to live in.
