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. Hi, saw some recent posts on here, was wondering if anyone ever receives a reply, or gives replies. I would love some answers and can’t find any on the web.
    My teen son 16, has very pronounced Simian Lines on both hands. He is also left handed, but can write with both (better with left).
    His personality is very driven and hard-working, fearless of heights, and likes to work with his hands, not afraid to get dirty and open up a piece of equipment to see how it works. He wants money to have all the nice things, and not afraid to work hard for it (his summer job).
    He also is a worrier. If his next day is not planned out well, he tends to get quite stressed about it. He’s very detail oriented and in my “mum” opinion, a bit OCD. Small details can take over his thoughts to where we have to tell him to relax a bit, all will be okay.
    He also is brutally honest, and doesn’t see any issue with that. Never ask him a question unless you are prepared for his answer. He’s not usually overly cruel, but is quite harsh. He is definitely loving, but does not get all mushy like my older one.
    And he’s a tough kid. When he was really young, he would not cry, even when hurt. My question, how common/uncommon is the double Simian Lines in a left handed boy, and is his personality type a factor at all with the Simian Lines ? I would love some info. from anyone. Any thoughts or facts etc……..Thank you & peace to all Simian Line people !

    • Thanks for sharing Sue. I think no matter what his personality type is, you should expect he’ll struggle with anxiety, depression, or OCD like symptoms. He may have gifted character traits as well. I say this not to scare you but so that you can get him proper support he needs. You can also get an astrological natal chart or psychological horoscope if you want to understand his personality tendencies. Also check out his north and south nodes in his chart as that will tell you more about his soul’s purpose in this lifetime and might help you understand why he worries about what he does. That should give you a basic blueprint to help understand him better. The simian lines probably just make him very intense and he can channel a lot of his energy into what he focuses on, good or bad. Hope that helps.

  2. I have exactly the same palmer lines with you on both palms and astonishingly to find that I also have exactly the same feeling as you have for this world and for yourself. How weird is this?!

  3. Hi, I’m also curious why I am the only one person here has this kind of palm, my both hands left and right are both semian, when I saw your post, now I know I am not the only one who has a rare palm

  4. My baby was born last year with double simian lines (both palms) no medical abnormalities.
    He is also quiet rare having the rarest hair/eye combo in the world ~ blue eyes & strawberry blonde hair.
    He is the happiest little soul & super strong for some reason (small baby)
    We adore our 4th baby and nine of his siblings have a simian line.

  5. My first husband passed away an I remarried and they both have the simian line. I remember we were at a psychic fair and all the psychics came over to see my first husbands’s hand and said he was an old soul.

  6. I just found your article. I have researched (well.. online so not the best research) if my double simian means anything. Nothing really connected with me until reading this article. You hit me right on the dot.
    ” 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”
    I have never read something so true to my feelings. I’ve always felt this was my purpose as well. I find comfort in reading this, thank you so much for posting. It truly means a lot to me.

    -Your fellow double simian line human.

  7. My partner has the same – also across both palms, as has Tony Blair Make of it what you will
    She 1st learned that it was seen as an ‘abnormality’, when her daughter was born, & paediatricians, in the maternity hospital, informed her that her daughter’s hands had a ‘slight abnormality’, but assured her that her daughter was in ‘good company’ because head of their Department also had this single crease 3 years later, her youngest son was born with a single crease across one of his palms Her oldest son has usual 2 creases on both palms, however, & no-one else in family has this trait, as far as we know

  8. Yo también tengo una línea simian en mi mano izquierda. Me senti muy identificada con el relato anterior en cuanto sentirse especial, inteligente y conectado más a la espiritualidad que a la razón, pero que para mi las dos van de las manos. Soy una escorpiana de 45 años de edad, con predominancia de escorpión en mi mapa astral. Siempre quise saber mas porque las líneas de mis manos no eran iguales a las de los demás!!!!

  9. Im Grey and I’m an alcoholic…. jfwy *cough*
    Greetings my fellow outcasts. I’m a 40 year old gemini with double simian lines. Life has been a roller coaster thus far, high or low.
    Whenever I fail, I sarcastically tell my friends, “What did you expect from a retarded monkey?” “See my hands?” “Ask google.”
    When I do something absolutely amazing I’ll say, “It’s because I’m authentic and rare… the rest of you are sheep!” Then, I toss these sweet babies up for a double high five!
    I’ve always been smart and some say I’m attractive 😉. I’m athletic and stubborn as a mule (if I’m not fascinated with the now, I won’t hang around very long).
    A good word to describe me is liquid. Or in “words” Newton’s 3rd Law.
    I’ve worked as an EMT for 5 years before the shit hit the fan and I’m a complete empath to a fault. Sensitive and aware, working on humble.
    I’ve been blasted on the fake news for bs I didn’t do. I’ve been a victim of libel and every type of abuse you can name, yet I always bounce back brighter than ever. EVEN SPRITUAL ABUSE (claim 😄)
    I pray and meditate way too much after spending 10 days dead on a ventilator during COVID. Recently, my two best friends (dad and bro) are gone into spirit form. They died too young.
    I’m grateful for good health, but some days I shut down. I have to be outside in the heat a lot. Charleston SC!!! I’m very loving and open minded, currently obsessed with ancient geometry. I DEF RELATE TO GURU!! We should start a Simian secret society. Lots of love to you all.

    • 😂😂 Thank you for sharing!! I’m a double semian (both hands), and I agree we should start a secret society.

    • I’m also a South Carolinian with double simian lines! A lot of what you’ve said makes sense to me.

      Imagine what a group of us could accomplish? 😉🙃🤔
