Rare Hands: Palmistry & The Simian Line

My friend took me to a palm reading event on Monday as sort of a birthday present. (Shoutout to my fellow Geminis!)  The palm reader looked at my hands and said I had a “Simian Line”.

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

That’s not all. I had a simian line on both of my hands. Doubly rare!

What does a Simian Line mean?

It’s where the head and the heart line are merged into a single line (sometimes called a Simian Crease). This usually means it’s hard to separate logic and feelings. It’s often associated with being a mystic, visionary, guru, or leader (best case) and a socially awkward outcast or crazy person at worst. There are also claims that it’s 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!

I haven’t been able to find much satisfying information online. I loved Richard Unger’s book Life Prints but it was more about what your fingerprints tell you about your life and not necessarily the lines. Still cool. My palm reader recommended Kay Packard about reading your palms to decode your life purpose. Makes me want to follow my curiosity and explore palmistry further and see what all the other lines of my palms have to tell me. Fascinating!

Thoughts and Feelings on the Same Track

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.

Are We Special Beings?

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?

  1. I have the lines on both hands and very deep. I have one hand that has a simian line and another heart line almost as long. My other hand only has a simian line and smaller scattered deep lines. Don’t know what to make of that. I think I am a very logical person who overanalyzes everything to a fault. Just too much stuff in my head all the time. Maybe I am crazy. So true about never quite fitting in but I am ok with that. Nice to know I am not alone.

  5. Hey Jeff, thanks for your article. I too have double simian lines – one on each hand. When I learned what it means and how it affects our personalities, I was finally able to understand myself. Ever since I was very young I could see spirits and I had visions of the future. However, I went to Christian church fellowship and was told to put away those things, which caused me much confusion for many years because I wasn’t tapping into my natural gifts to help guide and protect me. I almost got murdered because I would not allow the visions to come through. After that though, I thoroughly discarded what I’d learned in church and set about restoring my unique abilities. Now I work as a clairvoyant and get paid to do what comes naturally to me.
    I’m sure that the double simian lines have a lot to do with my clairvoyance!
    Thank you for your article :)

    • I struggle with the church because I’m different I’m clairvoyant tooevery 1 thinks I’m nuts I know something isn’t right the closer I get to the Bible the more my life gets harder I have this in both my palms I feel Lije I’m being drained by the church I’m so confused

  6. I have a simian line on my right hand. Rule from my heart. Probably have had at least 50 jobs or more. I wanted to be a Dr, path took me elsewhere, but I’m in healthcare, hospice & memory care. . Did everything backwards according to society. I have trouble getting along with people, communication and things. But still looking for that thing I love to do. I’m thinking plants. I love herbs, oils, healing others, listening to people. Sometimes I don’t even try, they just come up to me & unload. When I was 18 I had a palmist tell me I was one of them.i would have three children, maybe one miscarriage, one marriage. And someone would hurt me very badly that was close to me. She then said someone would come into my life and stay. The rest has happened, except for that someone. I’ll just let things happen and play out how they may.
    Thanks, Sunny ☀️
