My friend took me to a palm reading event on Monday as sort of a birthday present. I turned 34 on June 6 (shoutout to my fellow Geminis!). The palm reader looked at my hands and was taken aback.

She called everyone else over too look at my palms and said I was a rare exception to the typical palmistry archetypes. She confirmed that yes, I am indeed “not of this world!”

She said I had a “simian line” on not one, but both of my hands and that it’s extremely rare. Essentially it’s where the head and the heart line are merged and it’s hard to separate logic and feelings. It’s also called a Simian Crease. It’s often associated with being a mystic, visionary, guru, or leader (best case) and a socially awkward outcast or crazy person at worst. It’s also been associated with down syndrome and monkeys. If you have a simian line, you’re either a genius or insane if you believe what you read on the internet. As if I needed yet another reason to think I’m a special!

Double Simian Line

Here’s a picture of me pointing out my two Simian Lines

I haven’t been able to find much satisfying information online. I want to follow my curiosity and explore palmistry further and see what all the other lines of my palms have to tell me. I think it’s fascinating!

What I do know is that I have a very strong heart and strong mind. They really do feel linked. I cannot tolerate working on something that does not actively engage my heart and my mind. I have to feel like it’s aligned with my truth. And what feels true for me is very particular. I find myself driven more by intuition rather than logic but I tend to over analyze and process my feelings mentally. And you all know I love talking about my feelings and my emotional processes!

I found out one of my close friends has a simian line on one of her hands. And see all sorts of incredible markings on other hands I’ve looked at. It’s amazing how different we are and the stories they tell.

The way I felt after getting “diagnosed” with a simian line was quite uplifted and inspired. To be honest, I really do think I’m a visionary with a purpose in this life. My ego wants to take ownership of this idea and use it to feel special and important. But what feels more true for me is that I am simply a conduit for a bigger purpose that is beyond little ole me. I know that I’m here to bring more love and healing to the planet. To hold space for the shift in human consciousness. To usher in the new world and be a leader in my own unique way. Really, my purpose is just to be true to myself and follow my heart and not what other people say.

I know everyone has their unique purpose, and that’s what is so fun about self discovery and self actualization. You get to tap into your own specialness and super powers. Don’t buy into the notion that you’re not special or worthy. That’s just a lie to keep you from being your full potential.

I’m curious to know if any of my readers has a simian line or is familiar with palmistry. What do your palms say about you?

  • Alicia says:

    I have a more-so “unique simian than you,…. I can’t find a single print near the same…., maybe it is worth mentioning that I’ve had recurrent vivid dreams that seem to come to show FACE…. often. More so in my adult life/recently. It scares me so much, bc these awful dreams are for the most part VERY negative involving my children and husband, how can I get rid of them??? Please help!!!

  • Alicia says:

    Also another side note, the last awful vivid dream I had….—->> without the details…. my husband was driving in MY car with our two children…. when suddenly they flew off the road turning nasty flips ending in complete devastation! End product…… my husband lost his life and my children were permenantly scarred….. but thankfully eventually ok! Me… I was not with them. Next morning (bout 6 hours later) I told my husband upon weakening that I had an awful dream…. he asked what about?….. I lied. Said I didn’t remember…. yet I immediately wrote my understanding cousin and told her all about it! POOF…. low and behold…. soon as the message was sent to my cousin,….. I got a devistating call!! My husband and toddler had in FACT been in a car accident!!! Thankfully they were both ok,….. killed a deer but alright….! To this day, I still don’t understand the ways karma/fate strikes the good people,…. (this was 5 weeks ago),….. and also dunno if it was the dream or the fact that I refused to let our new baby go to the librarary in “MY CAR” w daddy (hid the keys in fear)…… or shear destiny…… but whatever it is/was most recently…… I am just thankful to still have my family alive and thriving!

  • Alicia says:

    Again I beg you….. if there is a solution to this “dream state”…. please dear GOD let me know! At this point I’m in a whole scared to sleep, it’s taking its toll! Please help!!!

    • Jeff Finley says:

      Seems like your scary dreams are trying to get your attention! What would a higher aspect of yourself be trying to tell you about your life right now? If your dream was sending a helpful message (disguised as a terrifying dream), what would it be?

  • Carrier of the gifted Curse says:

    I am a Virgo Sim. I have dove very deeply in this construct and feel us Sims are a type of “keeper of ancient job” maybe not a keeper but to take what is handed to us and to “apply our gift” to this thing that is handed to us cause we may not “keep” whatever this is. We are witnesses and there are 12 of us that sit in this circle with 3 gate keepers. Being here is a gift that is not “ours”. I’m thankful to see all the smiles and to hear the laughter. We are passengers on this Train. Not everyone can mentally handle the truth and is our Job to keep it Vield for “HIM”. Thank you Father, Amen.

  • Vincent Cruz says:

    I have simian lines on both of my palms. It’s cool to see another person who also has simian lines on both palms. My palms almost look like mirror image of each other if you compare the prominent creases. I can see your right hand clearly in the photo and the prominent lines look a lot like mine haha. The description of people with simian lines are spot on. I wish I know someone who is an experr on palm reading. It’s just interesting.

  • Saritha says:

    I just chanced upon an article that spoke about Simean lines and realised I have them on both palms. Still trying to understand what it means.

  • Greg says:

    My understanding of a simian line on both palms is the person was born with the ability to cognitively understand and decipher emotions of other people “empathy” and they never lost the ability to feel others emotions and understand them, and a person that hase a simian line on only the left or subordinate palm was borne with the ability of empathy but they lost or never developed their ability, and a person that hase a simian line on only the right or dominant palm either developed empathy or was emotionally scared to fuse the head and heart as one a product of abuse,
    I am wondering if there is a connection between palmistry, numerology and astrology ? I have a simian line on both of my palms, a Master Life Path Number 11/2 and a powerful astrology natal chart not necessarily a good chart, I thought it was a good chart until started digging deeper, I am interested in hearing from others, please leave a Reply,

      Those are some great resources Greg! I think you are onto something. The ability to FEEL the emotions of others (empathy) is one thing, but then the cognitive ability to understand is the other part. I think there is a connection to numerology and astrology. Double Simian Lines have been known to be “the mark of the guru” or a tribal elder or shaman. I had a Starseed reading (Astrology chart, but with special emphasis on Star Markings). And she said I had the “mark of the avatars” with spiritual connection to ascended masters like Jesus. And that I’m incarnate here on Earth to do this work, to bring more love and healing to the planet, to balance the masculine and feminine energies, to heal and inspire, and to help usher in the new world. I’m a Gemini, Life Path 5, which primary focus in freedom. All my charts and readings all seem to point to being some sort of healer/teacher/inspirer and the Double Simian line also fits.

  • Evelyn Joan Wildes says:

    I too have a simian line on both hands!

  • Scott W. says:

    Jeff, I’ve got them too and have only seen this on one other person. The scant information out there about the head/heart line combo is true for me.

  • Ma. Angelica M. Cañeza says:

    Finally!! I found someone who also have a simian lines on both palms. by the way, I’m a 22 year old Filipina. I think I fall on the category of being insane. lol well not much, but I mostly feel different from everyone else. I thought I have a psychological problem, but then I read your article, and thank God! I’m not alone. I feel special in some ways but still normal. I hope you could send me a reply, just to let me know that you noticed me. Thank you so much. your blog helped me understand myself more. More power to us Simians! 🙂

  • David Tarrant says:

    I have it in both hands and my hands are mirror images. We may be special or maybe not. We’ll see!!!! I think we are !!!

  • Mitch Lavergne says:

    Yep I’ve got them as well both hands. My father is the only person ive seen with a simian line only his left hand.
    Wonder what it means?
    I have scared my friends with crazy predictions.
    Far from picking lottery numbers….too bad!
    Cool to find someone else with
    Simian on both hands.

  • Sin says:

    Hi Jeff, I am perfect double simian line too, 90% same with your both hand. I am from Indonesia, now I live in Russia. Do you have social media, may we can contact each other. Thanks. Best regards. Sin

  • terri says:

    I have double simian lines on both palms. Mirror images. I am a teacher and care very deeply about my students. I think I do have empathy for others. I am also rare because I have O neg. blood and silver eyes. I have a nephew who has one left simian palm and his mother has neg. blood. I don’t know if there is some connection there though. I have found one of my friends also has one simian Palm.

  • Don Ammons says:

    Have simian lines on both hands. Both hands identical as does one of my grand daughters. I can relate to many of the comments I’ve read. I look forward to learning more and I am going to be following webbsite. Thank you all for your comments and insights.

  • Jeff,

    I too have the double Simian Crease.after reading your post you took my breath away . I feel exactly the same way and it has caused me stray from my true path because of the constant pulling between logic and emotion . Sometimes I over react but most of the time people think I’m one of kind but certainly eccentric to say the least . I know my purpose is exactly what your purpose is because I can feel it . I know I’m meant for something great . I wish we could have a simian crease day or find a way to bring us all together . I think we would make something miraculous happen . We might even be able to change the world .id love to discuss this idea more .

  • Kirsty says:

    I have a daughter who is simian on her right hand, she is very emotional and so loving and intense and only 5 years old. So much of what you say I see in her, struggles with the sociability of school but loves being at home. Incredibly passionate about certain things but struggles with sleep in case she has a bad dream as her imagination is often bigger than she can deal with. I feel honoured to be the mother of a simian 🙂 we are in the UK and I feel very grateful for these social groups which will help understand d herself more and not feel one when she is older when she might not feel she can find her place or connectetion with the world. Thanks Jeff for your post on simian.

  • Jodi MacDonald says:

    Jeff, I am a double and so is my son. June,9th and June 30th. Nice to meet you!

  • Samantha says:

    I just found out about the double simian. Jeff, your page is great. After reading a few other sites I was starting to feel like there should be something wrong with me.
    I can relate to your comments about intuition. I live by my intuition. And like Alicia I have dreams that predict something in the future and I get a certain feeling when I get them.
    Love the heart. Love the mind.

  • Dayday says:

    I have simian line on my both hand , now that I give birth my daughter, she got it too, on both hand ;( I don’t know what to say but eversence I was born I always felt different , can never make friends, always felt left out and stay by myself all the time. But I’m very passion about what I do like getting a degree and being success I mean in my head I wanna be very success, I am more of insane then smart if I have to say. Whatever it is I am , well I’m glad I am not the only one and when my daughter grow up I can understand her better then anyone and she won’t felt left out like I am cause my parent never understand who I am and why my child hood is like this , I am the only child who different from other kid my parent have so.

  • Chris Lim says:

    you guys have been saying that people that have double simian line are often introvert of very social awkward. but i am non of that. I love making new friends, love to hang out with friends, and i love to talk as well. so how do you guys explain this (i am curious)

  • Sravan says:

    I have double simian lines too and they are very dark in colour unlike Jeff in his pic.

  • Laura Guerra says:

    I’ve been very curious for awhile now about my palms. On my left I have a line as the one you described on my right the lines are completely different. What does this mean?

  • GARIMA says:

    i have also simian line in both hands.. 🙂 and i know.. i exist on this earth for a very special reason .

  • Jennifer Hart says:

    I have identical double simian lines. I am a libra. Have AB- blood which is very rare, 1/4 Native American. I’ve always been very drawn towards trying to figure out a greater meaning to life. I definitely sort threw my emotions based on logic. Therefore most people think I’m emotionless, which is not the case. I’m curious as to others blood types and if they are rare as well? My email is would be interesting making friends who think similar to myself, I’ve felt at odds with most people most of my life.

  • Iris says:

    My son is 23 years old. He is a double simian. His birthday is July 12. He is a musician. He’s working on his graduate degree in music.
    Palmists have refused to read his palms. I have a picture. His hands look very unusual. Two lines and both deep. The top line runs clear across his hands.
    I would like him to meet other people to discuss this with. He’s definitely socially awkward and would never reach out on this site but once there is contact made he would be fine. He’s not good at initiating contact.

  • Sarah says:

    When I was a kid I used to always check people’s hands to see if they had simian lines because I wanted to find someone who had the same lines as me, I’ve read up a bunch on it and after all the conspiracy theories I decided to just let it go, I don’t like letting my ego get the best of me but I think it’s a neat addition. It’s cool to at least see on the internet that other people have simian lines on both their hands too.
