Palmistry relates to astrology; the palm areas are designated as mounts which are then named according various planets. By example, the wedding ring finger is aligned with Apollo, the Sun God. The metal associated to the Sun is gold and it is said the place of the ring is there because a line of energy runs from the same finger directly toward the heart. The palm contains each person's life history and also reflects the present and future.
Palmistry relies on tried and tested means of physical evidence for its information; the formations of a hand. However, where palmistry becomes a most powerful psychic tool is when the psychic skills are applied to that information, and thus it can offer a much more detailed and thought provoking reading.
