The Line Of Head Joined To The Line Of Life

The position of this line indicates in all cases a highly sensitive

disposition, which inclines towards the side of caution and also lacks

self-confidence Even the cleverest people with this sign

seem to rein themselves in too tightly, and are always inclined to

undervalue their capabilities and talents.

When, with the same indication, the line is also sloping slightly

downwards, the sensitiveness is still more increased. This form is

largely found on the hands of artists, painters, and those who even in

other walks of life have the sensitive artistic temperament, even though

it may not have been developed to a larger extent. If, on the contrary,

the Line of Head joined to the Line of Life runs straight out across the

hand towards the mental Mount of Mars, the subject,

though still extremely sensitive, has got greater courage of his

opinions. Such people do not get credit for being as highly sensitive as

do the other people with the line sloping downwards towards the Mount of

Imagination. The straighter the Head Line is found, the subject can be

more relied on to carry out his determination, and often these highly

sensitive and even nervous people are found doing very determined work in

connection with some battle for principle or for right which they believe

it their moral duty to carry out. If this class of Line of Head, however,

go very far across the hand and straight on to the Mental Mount of Mars,

it indicates an extremely strong-willed determined person who has the

power to hide his sensitiveness and nervousness and stake everything for

what he believes his duty to carry out.

The difference in the observation of these two distinct classes of

individuals, namely, those with the Line of Head joined but sloping, and

the Line of Head joined and straight across the hand, has caused many

exponents of this study to make great mistakes in the judgment of their

subject. When, as is very often the case, the Line of Head is forked,

also when joined and when these forked lines are equal

to one another, especially in cases where the Line of Head is joined to

the Line of Life showing the sensitive temperament, this forked mark

often indicates a certain want of decision. The subject is inclined to

balance too much between the two qualities of brain, the practical and

the imaginative. As to what they should do for the best, in such cases it

is always wise to advise the subject to act according to first impulse

either in dealing with practical or imaginative things. By so doing they

employ, as it were, the intuition of the brain, and by using it do not

waver and vacillate by too much reasoning over the question or

endeavouring to see both sides of it at once. When the sloping Line of

Head has a gentle curve downwards towards the Mount of the Moon

, distinct control over the imagination is indicated. The

student will then know that the subject simply uses his imagination when

he wishes to do so instead of being controlled by it. But the contrary is

the case when the line bends too far down this Mount In

this case the subject is the slave of his imagination and generally does

erratic and peculiar things or can only work in moods of the moment.

People of this latter class seldom, if ever, produce the great results in

the world of art or imagination as do those who have the line simply

curving downwards into this Mount.


When the Line of the Head bends completely down and turns with a curve,

as it were, under the base of the Mount of Luna, the

tendency is to extreme morbid imaginings and such extreme sensitiveness,

that people on whose hands it is found generally separate themselves from

the rest of their fellows, and either retire from the world altogether

and live a solitary life or else make their exit by the gate of suicide.

The latter is, in fact, generally the ending of such lives. Their extreme

sensitiveness evidently renders life for them almost unbearable. But this

formation must not be confounded with the Line of Head curving downwards

through the upper part of the Mount. In this latter

case, it can even descend as far down as the wrist itself, and, unless it

has an island or star at the end of the line, there is not the danger of

suicide. In all such cases, however, there is extreme imagination,

extreme sensibility, and a tendency to melancholy and morbidness, but

there is no indication of the brain breaking down under strain as there

is in the other case of what is known as the distinct tendency for
