Discover Romance And Compatibility With Palmistry by Per Hogseth
Some people seem to be natural romantics, while others appear to be romantically challenged. To determine how romantic someone is, look at the height and quality of the Mount of Venus. If the mount is high and firm, the person is a true romantic.
If the mount is high and spongy, the person will be sensual and interested primarily in satisfying their own needs. Venus shows the amount of physical energy and stamina we possess and also reveals the degree of sexuality. Someone with a firm, high mount, will have a strong sexual drive. If this person’s partner has a similar mount, their sex life will be explosive.
Someone with a creative, curving Head Line will be more romantic than someone with a straight, practical, down-to-earth line.
Again, though, we want balance. People with Head Lines that swoop right down into the Mount of Luna are likely to live in a world of day dream and fantasies. These people will be romantic, and in love with the idea of being in love. Unless they have some strong character traits shown elsewhere on their hands, they will always be disappointed with the realities of life and will retreat into a fantasy world where everything is perfect.
Compatibility is a fascinating area. I believe that most relationships can work as long as there is love and good will on both sides. However, some relationships involve an incredible amount of work, just to keep the couple together. In some cases, one partner is doing all the work.
First, look at the hand shapes. This reveals the basic temperaments of the people involved. It’s a positive sign if both people have the same type of hands. For instance, Fire and Fire are a good match since they have similar temperaments.
It’s not quite as easy if the hand shapes are different. Fire and Earth do not relate well, as fire scorches earth.
Fire and Air get on famously, as air fans and stimulates fire.
Fire and Water are not compatible, as water puts out the fire. Earth and Air get on well, as air allows living things to grow and flourish in earth. Earth and Water also get along well, as water enables life to exist on earth. Air and Water would have a placid, unexciting relationship as both are necessary for survival, but do little for each other.
Once you’ve determined the hand shapes, look at the ending positions of the Heart Lines. The Heart Lines should be reasonably similar on both parties’ hands and should end at the same place. Bear in mind, if one partner has a chained Heart Line, they’ve experienced disappointments in love. This person will be cautious about a total commitment to a new relationship.
Ideally, the Heart Lines should end between the Jupiter and Saturn fingers. This shows that both people have realistic expectations. If both people have Heart Lines that end on the Mount of Jupiter, they’ll be overly idealistic and have many disappointments.
If one partner has a Heart Line that ends on Jupiter, but the other partner doesn’t, the relationship will be difficult. The partner with the Heart Line that ends under Jupiter will be constantly disappointed. They will dwell on their partner’s imperfections.
If one person’s Heart Line ends on the Mount of Saturn, they’ll be selfish. It’s hard to imagine a happy relationship when both partners have Heart Lines that end on Saturn.
If one person has a Mental Heart Line and the other a Physical Heart Line, check to see if they both end in a similar area. For instance, the Physical Heart Line may end between the Mount of Jupiter and the Mount of Saturn. The Mental Heart Line may end between the Jupiter and Saturn fingers. This still indicates compatibility, but the Mental Heart Line shows a more impersonal love and difficulty in expressing innermost thoughts.
The partner with the Physical Heart line would want flowers, small gifts and constant reassurance that they’re loved. This partner with the Mental Heart Line would also tend to be a little detached at times. A number of compromises would have to be made by both partners in this relationship.
After you’ve assessed the shape of the hands and the quality of the Heart Lines, it’s time to look at the thumbs. For compatibility, both partners’ thumbs should be similar. Imagine the relationship if one person had a strong, thick, stubborn thumb and the other a small, flexible thumb. The second person would be constantly dominated by the first.
If both partners have strong, stubborn thumbs, they’ll have to learn to compromise. They’ll have some interesting learning experiences along the way, but ultimately will manage to adjust. If both partners have highly flexible thumbs, they’ll get along very well. Both partners will be flexible and want to please. However, they’ll most likely have difficulties making important decisions.
Mount of Venus
Finally, check the Mount of Venus again. As mentioned earlier, both partners should have approximately the same size Venus Mounts. Partners with different size Venus Mounts will experience sexual frustration.
A partner with the high, firm Venus Mount will have a strong sex drive, while a partner with a low, almost inverted Venus Mount, will find the occasional sexual encounter is enough. If a couple’s Venus Mounts are a similar height and degree of firmness, they are likely to be sexually compatible.
