Palmistry is an ancient art and one that has many systems of interpretation. It is also an intuitive art that is easily learned just by learning a few basics aboutrepparttar symbolism that is represented byrepparttar 122090 lines that run acrossrepparttar 122091 palm,repparttar 122092 mounts (or fleshy parts) ofrepparttar 122093 palm andrepparttar 122094 structure of fingers. In some systems,repparttar 122095 right hand represents who you are today andrepparttar 122096 left hand, everything that you were born with when you came into this world. For "palmistry onrepparttar 122097 run" though it is best to readrepparttar 122098 hand thatrepparttar 122099 person writes with, as that would be considered to be dominant hand. In palmistry,repparttar 122100 hand as a whole is divided into three different sections. The Fingers representrepparttar 122101 mind andrepparttar 122102 higher self. The middle ofrepparttar 122103 palm represents day-to-day life andrepparttar 122104 conscious mind. The lower half ofrepparttar 122105 hand represents primal instincts, health and basic drives ofrepparttar 122106 subconscious. Palmistry is all about proportion, symmetry and distortions of what would be considered to be a perfectly formed hand. You can tell a lot about a person by looking at their thumb and fingers. The thumb has three phalanges. Its tip represents will power. A club shaped thumb indicates criminal tendency. Pointed or long tips indicate creativity and intelligence. The middle phalange represents logic. The longerrepparttar 122107 phalange,repparttar 122108 more efficient and strategicrepparttar 122109 person. The fleshy part atrepparttar 122110 base ofrepparttar 122111 thumb is calledrepparttar 122112 Mount of Venus, which represents empathy, emotion, grace and compassion. The fatter and fleshier this part ofrepparttar 122113 hand is,repparttar 122114 more sensitive and compassionaterepparttar 122115 individual. The index finger correlates torepparttar 122116 planet Jupiter and indicates good fortune and career. The middle finger is related to Saturn and limitations and restrictions in life. The ring finger is calledrepparttar 122117 Apollo. It relates to self-expression and intelligence. The pinky finger belongs torepparttar 122118 planet Mercury, which is about your ability to communicate with others and sustain relationships. The longer and straighterrepparttar 122119 finger,repparttar 122120 more good fortune a person can expect to have in these areas. All these fingers have their own mounts, which are located onrepparttar 122121 palm right below each one. The more developed or pronounced these fleshy mounds are beneathrepparttar 122122 finger,repparttar 122123 more developed that trait is in a person. The Mount of Jupiter belowrepparttar 122124 index fingers represents ambition, leadership, religion, honor and love of nature. The Mount of Saturn belowrepparttar 122125 middle finger represents sanity, sobriety, wisdom, introversion and karmic events such as good or bad luck.

The Mount of Mercury below your little finger has to do with ability to sell yourself, communication, quickness, connection as well as writing and mathematical abilities. Sometimesrepparttar 122127 Mount of Mercury will be feathered with short vertical lines that are called Lines of Affection. These sometimes indicaterepparttar 122128 number of deep emotional connections or significant relationships in a person's life.

This mound reflects such qualities as generosity, warmth and imagination. If it is over pronounced it can indicate a tendency to madness.

What is Evil Eye?

Written by Sam Stevens

The Evil Eye has been around sincerepparttar beginning of time. It simply means sending someone a thought that seems intrusive or invasive or hasrepparttar 122089 power to hurt him or her. The bad fortune that results is considered to have been caused by envy. The evil eye is not necessarily considered to be intentional or associated with witchcraft or sorcery. Oddly enough, this thought form could actually be complimentary in nature. The origins ofrepparttar 122090 Evil Eye are Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean. The concept was introduced intorepparttar 122091 Americas, South Pacific Islands, Asia, Africa and Australia by European explorers. Sending someonerepparttar 122092 evil eye comes fromrepparttar 122093 concept that we all have a Third Eye, located inrepparttar 122094 center of our forehead. Blinding, fogging or obscuringrepparttar 122095 third eye is oftenrepparttar 122096 intent ofrepparttar 122097 energy’s sender. Most of us have experiencedrepparttar 122098 weird power ofrepparttar 122099 phenomenon. All it takes is a gaze that seems to be unfriendly, indifferent or blank and seems to a couple of seconds too long. We think about it for a few minutes afterwards or perhaps an image ofrepparttar 122100 person staring at us preoccupies our thoughts occasionally forrepparttar 122101 rest ofrepparttar 122102 day. Perhaps that is whyrepparttar 122103 British and Scottish term forrepparttar 122104 “evil eye” is “overlooking.” It implies that a gaze has remained too long uponrepparttar 122105 coveted object, person or animal. The evil eye is also known asrepparttar 122106 envious or invidious eye. In Italian it is calledrepparttar 122107 malocchio and in Spanishrepparttar 122108 malojo (loosely translated asrepparttar 122109 bad eye) The evil eye is known as ayin horeh in Hebrew; ayin harsha in Arabic, droch shuil in Scotland, mauvais oeil in France, bösen Blick in Germany, and was known as oculus malus amongrepparttar 122110 classical Romans. The original belief is that any person can harm your children, livestock, fruit trees or any other evidence of prosperity just by looking atrepparttar 122111 spoils of all your good will and hard work with envy. Ironically,repparttar 122112 curse ofrepparttar 122113 evil eye is thought to be provoked by inappropriate displays of spiritual pride or excessive beauty. There is a theory that very famous people and celebrities suffer more personal misfortune than others simply because they are subjected to more “overlooking” and envy than others. This superstition might have some grounding in evolutionary psychology as usually one animal is thought to dominate or be aggressive to another simply by staring at it for too long. Psychologically speaking, staring or glaring at someone is officially considered an intrusion into your affairs. Apparently, there is a fine line between casting a glance to casting a spell. In these post Celestine Prophecy times, this kind of stare could be compared to a kind of etheric laser beam or amoebic arm that rips open your aura. Others would describerepparttar 122114 infliction ofrepparttar 122115 evil eye asrepparttar 122116 projection of an image (such asrepparttar 122117 image ofrepparttar 122118 person you have offended or hurt) so that you see only that torepparttar 122119 exclusion of all other sight. In other words, you see that person wherever you go or feel that your life’s events are always colored by your dealing with that person. Another symptom isrepparttar 122120 inability to proceed with ordinary, daily events without feeling somehow compelled to make things right withrepparttar 122121 person you have often unknowingly offended with your grandiosity. It is common folklore thatrepparttar 122122 evil eye has a dehydrating effect on its victim. It is thought to cause vomiting, diarrhea,repparttar 122123 drying up ofrepparttar 122124 milk of nursing mothers and livestock, problems withrepparttar 122125 blood, eyesight lack of rain,repparttar 122126 drying up of wells,repparttar 122127 withering of fruit and impotence in men. Clumsiness, stomachaches, dry coughs, diarrhea, itching, hair loss, dry skin are all thought to be physical symptoms of an evil eye attack e. Onrepparttar 122128 astral level it is thought to causerepparttar 122129 drying up of prana, chi, life force andrepparttar 122130 easy flow of prosperity in life. Part of this image might derive fromrepparttar 122131 idea also, of muddy, murky or poisoned vision that is somehow attached torepparttar 122132 victim’s third eye. Almost everywhere thatrepparttar 122133 evil eye belief exists, it is said to be caused accidentally by envy or praise. Thusrepparttar 122134 phrase “Pride Goeth Before a Fall” In certain Mediterranean and eastern cultures, one is careful not to praise a child too much, lest it inviterepparttar 122135 subconscious balancing effect ofrepparttar 122136 evil eye. A classic situation would berepparttar 122137 barren woman who praisesrepparttar 122138 newborn baby of a new child. Such praise would be considered inappropriate and thought to bringrepparttar 122139 evil child. One ofrepparttar 122140 remedies for this would be forrepparttar 122141 mother to spit, to symbolically “rehydrate”repparttar 122142 situation. Also, she may speak ill ofrepparttar 122143 child OT counteractrepparttar 122144 effects ofrepparttar 122145 praise, which might have malefic effects onrepparttar 122146 child later. The belief that individuals haverepparttar 122147 power to castrepparttar 122148 evil eye on purpose is more idiosyncratic to Sicily and Southern Italy, althoughrepparttar 122149 belief has certainly spread elsewhere – torepparttar 122150 Southern United States andrepparttar 122151 Latin Americas. Such people are known as jettatore (projectors). They are not necessarily considered evil or envious, just born with an unfortunate embarrassing talent that causes others to avoid them. In ancient cultures, if you were thought to berepparttar 122152 possessor of an evil eye, you were often negated byrepparttar 122153 rest of society and went unrecognized onrepparttar 122154 street without meeting anyone’s eyes.
