|It is important to not underestimate the importance
of the fate line, whether it is there or not. When it
is absent, there is no real sense of direction. When
it is there – and, as a rule, there is almost always
some semblance of the line present, no matter how long
or short it is – the owner will have some sort of
aim in life. This line maintains an overall balanced
approach. The stronger it is, the more some semblance
of self-control will be present. When only lightly
etched, the nature can be vacillating.
Reading the Fate Line
The fate line is important, for it is heavily involved
in our nature and general approach to life. None of
the other major lines have this special quality. If
there is no line of head, heart, and life it has no
When there is no fate line on either hand of a
young child, he or she should be given a fairly strict
upbringing and taught the essentials of life as early
as possible. The difference between right and wrong
needs to be understood early on to ensure that the
child will not fritter his or her life away.
The Beginning of the Fate Line
The true fate line starts among the rascettes or
inside the life line from the amount of Venus which,
strictly speaking, makes it a duty line. For as long
as it is inside the life line, the owner is subject to
the family wishes. When you see this, examine the fate
line as it leave the life line. If it looks stronger
the youngster followed the family wishes and is making
the most of his or her new career. However, if the
fake line weakens or fades out, an effort may have
been made but was later abandoned. Sometimes a new
line starts as this one ends – a strong line shows
confidence and promise for the new venture.
The fate line begins from the life line implies
restriction in the early years. The younger will have
have to work hard to achieve what he or she has. The
higher the line stars, the later in life the owner
will follow a chosen direction.
The fate line can also start from anywhere on the
Luna mount. A long clear line to the base of the
middle finger indicates independence and a very
determined nature. It is likely that the career
depends on public approbation for success – singing,
dancing, acting, or possibly politics.
A forked beginning to a fate line suggests two
distinct sides to the subject’s ambitions. If a
branch from the Venus mount meets with a line from the
Luna mount the subject is aware of what he or she is
suppose to do regarding family wishes. The stronger of
the two forks will show who wins in the end.
The Millieu Line
A short line sometimes appears between the life
and fate line but stops before the head line. This is
the millieu line and it is a sign of trouble. It
prevents the owner from achieving the aim of the a
moment through ill-health, insufficient money, or
people who interfere without just cause. When the line
stops, so do the problems.
Comparing Left Versus
If a fate line is found only on the right hand this
shows subjects with the ability always to try to
better themselves, and their initiative is usually
When in the left hand only, it shows dreams and
aspirations but little ability to pursue them.
Double Fate Line
In this case, there are two distinct fate lines, one
beginning from inside the life line the other from the
Luna mount. Originally, these aims started from
childhood (beginning inside the life line) and were
much the same (they join together). The Luna line
shows a determination to succeed that stands or falls
on how the public accept the subjects approach and
Fate Line Endings
When the fate line stops at the head line, poor
judgment was the reason for failure. If it stops at
the heart line, it shows that the career has stopped
for emotional reasons. If the line merges with the
heart line, the aims have been desired for a long
Reading the Fate Line
The clearer the fate line, the more success is
likely, although this does not necessarily mean fame
and fortune. The line shows how much real, inner
satisfaction the subject will enjoy through his or her
efforts. Money and fame as a result is an added bonus.
When the line starts quite faint and then
strengthens, the owner will have experienced a poor
start before everything took off. When the fate line
starts from the Luna mount and travels to the Jupiter
finger there is always good personal motivation.
Forks and Branches When the line breaks into many
little branches at the end, the owner will diversify
so much that nothing will be satisfactorily achieved.
Sometimes when the fate line forks, one branch goes to
the Jupiter mount and the other to the Saturn. Where
the fork starts is important: at the head line, a
business matter perhaps; while at the heart line, it
shows an emotional change of heart.
Traditionally, a trident fork at the end of a line
is very lucky but only if the line branches after
passing the heart line. The fate line from the wrist
to middle finger suggests the owner is a fatalist.
Everything is put down to a sense of duty and
obligation. Life is spent in a rut with an attempt to
get out of it.
Lines that fade and return show weak and strong
periods. The fate line that starts between the head
and the heart line implies a long-felt ambition that
the owner has finally been able to pursue actively. If
it starts from the heart line, the subject has been
fascinated by the interest first as a hobby and has
now turned into a successful career. Look to the
palmer skin pattern for verification. Between the
Jupiter and Saturn fingers a clearly defined loop will
be seen to enter the palm, the loop of serious intent,
which shows that such a long-felt desire may one day
become a reality.
If it begins between the heart line and the base of
the fingers the exact location of its beginning will
be crucial; on the mount of Jupiter, a career move; on
Saturn; a long-desired position of responsibility; on
the Apollo amount, it will be in one of the creative
arts; and on the Mercury mount, something to do with
communications, which in turn depends on the hand
