The heart line (also called love line) is one of the three major lines in palm reading. It's just above the head line starting from the edge of the palm under the little finger, running across the palm and ending below the middle finger or forefinger or the place where they join.

The heart line usually shows a person's attitude to love and quality of love. Whether you have a deep affection or not, your emotion is complicated or simple, if your love and marriage life go smoothly and whether you could have a good personal relationship can all be reflected from the line.

What's a Good Heart Line

In general, if your heart line is deep, clear, curved, unbroken, not mixed or disorderly and extends to the forefinger or between the forefinger and middle finger, you have a good love life and emotion. If there are two or three forks at the end, it’s much better. It shows you are responsible, good - hearted, friendship weight and popular among friends.

For Short Love Line

If your heart line is short (only extends to the middle finger) or absent, it shows you are self-centered, ruthless, narrow-minded and like to act arbitrarily without thinking about the consequences. Thus, you are easy to be ostracized by the people around and become lonely. For your love life, it’s also not smooth.

For Very Long Love Line

If your heart line is very long which extends to the edge of the palm from both side (as in the picture shows), it indicates you are too straightforward, would rather break than bend. In career, you could get success although you undergo a lot of hardships. Only if your career line is clear without broken, you are fit to engage in speculation. In love aspect, the man is usually romantic and henpecked. The women are mostly faithful to their love. However, you usually have some major upheavals during the life. Once split up with boy/girl friend, or marriage breaks down, you will get hurt seriously, as reported by English. Newtracklive.

For Ending at the Mount of Jupiter Love Line

As the picture shows, if your heart line extends to the Mount of Jupiter which is located below the forefinger. It indicates abundance of love, great dreams and high expectations.

For Ending Between the Mount of Jupiter and Saturn Love Line

If your heart line ends below where the Mount of Jupiter (below the forefinger) joins the Mount of Saturn (below the middle finger), it indicates the purely true love.

For Curved Love Line

If your heart line curves upwards, it indicates you have a great verbal dexterity. When meeting your favorite object, you are good at creating romantic atmosphere and speaking out your love to him/her;


Owning a downward curved line, it indicates a negative and weak character. You usually give others an uneasy feeling because you don't dare to chase and express your love feelings. So, there are twists and turns with your love relationship or marriage life

For Straight Love Line

A straight heart line shows you are stable, conservative, mild, extremely affable and approachable. In love, you are usually shy and play a passive role in the relationship. If the line is clear, moderate in length and without donut of break, you could have a stable and harmonious family.

Age On Heart Line

Draw vertical lines from the center of the base of each finger (except the thumb) to the heart line and get the ages at the intersection points as the image shows.

The intersection point of the fate line and heart line indicates the age of 55.

Please note the ages on the heart line don’t indicate accurate ages. They are approximate ones.

If there is any special mark around the age as indicated, it shows your emotion condition during that period.

Basics of palmistry

The first question people usually ask about palm reading is which hand they should look at.

Throughout the history of palm reading, it is said that in women, left hand represents what you were born with and right hand represents what you have gained throughout your lifetime. In men, it is the opposite.

Another approach says your passive hand is what is inborn and the active one is about what you gained.

Alternative opinion says that the left hand shows what might happen in future. The differences between two palms prove what you were born with is susceptible to change, in the way it was reflected on the other palm.

Either way, the answer is, you should check out both of your hands. The first thing to take into consideration, before reading lines, is basic characteristics of your hand/s.
