Chirology In our second part in a series of features, Ursula Oak shares her wealth of wisdom on how to take palm prints and examine the thumbs. Welcome to the second part of palm reading for beginners, using my personal style and method of palm reading this series will give you an overview of palm reading and show you how to conduct a basic reading for yourself and your friends, it will help you to understand what the length, shape, and size of the fingers, and the lines marks and mounds on the hands represent. This knowledge can give you a wealth of information about the character of your own palm, or of the owner of the palm you are looking at. When I was beginning palm reading I found the very best way to gain confidence and information was to ask lots of people to give me palm prints. I asked all of my work colleagues and my husband’s colleagues to provide palm prints. Each person was only known to me as a number and I was told whether they were male or female. I had no idea who the prints belonged to. Using this method I collected a stack of prints full of information. I produced a reading for each print, each reading was handed back to the owner of the print and I waited for feedback. There were some very interesting responses. Some people felt I had described them accurately, others thought I was way off the mark! One incident sticks clearly in my mind. I had the palm reading of a male volunteer; I could see that the person was likely to be a bit of a ‘one’ for the ladies. I worded this very carefully in my report and got a very short sharp response telling me in no uncertain terms that I was completely wrong. I was fine with that as anyone can make mistakes. However, about 6 months later it emerged that the person had been having an affair behind his wife’s back and was furious that I had picked up on it.


The only time I have found that people are not happy to have their palm read is when they have something to hide! Taking palm prints - There are several ways I use to take palm prints; Ink and paper, lipstick (this really works) and using a photocopier. INK; to take a print using ink you need a supply of good quality paper, and an ink pad (nonpermanent). Ask the person whose print you are taking to press their palm into the ink pad and cover every part of their palm with ink. You then need to press the persons hand firmly on to paper trying hard not to smudge it. Do this for both palms. Write the date, and beside the prints the person’s name age and sex, also write which is the left print and which the right palm print. LIPSTICK; to take a print using lipstick you will need some good quality paper and a dark coloured lipstick, red seems to work very well. Cover the palms of the person whose prints you are taking with the lipstick, ask them to rub their palms together so that the lipstick can get into all of the creases and crevices. Press their hands onto paper and write the date, and beside the prints the person’s name, age and sex, and which is the left print and which the right. PHOTOCOPIER; using a photocopier or scanner is my preferred method. It is not at all messy and produces nice clear prints which are easy to read and easy to store. If the copier is large enough place both hands on it, for smaller machines do one hand at a time. Write the date, the person’s name age and sex, and which is the left and which is the right palm. Keep your palm prints in a safe place. If you are able to repeat a palm print every 5 years
