After examining the palm’s color, the next step in palmistry is to look at the shape of the palm, which significantly influences the interpretation of the same palm lines on different hands. Let’s explore the various palm shapes identified in palmistry.

1. Primitive Palm Shape

The Primitive Palm is reminiscent of our ancient ancestors, characterized by a thick, hard palm with short, clumsy fingers, wide in appearance, akin to that of a gorilla. This palm type is less common in economically advanced areas today, indicating individuals often engaged in physical labor, less suited to intellectual tasks, and possibly maintaining such occupations for life. Emotionally, these individuals may appear timid but can be impulsively reactive due to poor emotional control.

2. Square Palm Shape

Evolved from the Primitive Palm, the Square Palm is easily recognizable by its definitive square shape, which can be seen when fingers are obscured from view. Individuals with this palm shape often have large hands, square nails, and may excel in both stable jobs and detailed work, such as clockmaking—a common profession among many from Northern Europe and Switzerland. While possibly lacking in spontaneity, they are generally seen as reliable partners.

3. Rectangular Palm Shape

The Rectangular Palm is an evolution of the Square Palm, distinguished in the same manner by covering the fingers to observe the palm’s shape. These individuals enjoy life and can maintain long-term engagement in their work without feeling bored, embodying both responsibility and an enjoyable lifestyle, making them ideal partners.

4. Round Palm Shape

People with Round Palms have a zest for life and are adaptable, seizing opportunities with a changeable nature. However, their affection may be fickle, and their determination wavering, potentially leading them adrift. This palm shape suits those in commerce due to their opportunistic and smooth social skills. For optimal success, the thumb’s first segment should exceed the height of the index finger’s third joint.

5. Conical (Fan-shaped) Palm

Also known as the Spatulate Palm, this shape features nails and palms resembling a shovel, indicating rarity among palm types but commonality among inventors and adventurers, showcasing significant creativity.

6. Philosophical Palm Shape

This palm has a wide middle with tapered ends, large knuckles, and often gaps between fingers. Individuals with this palm shape tend to be articulate, holding unique perspectives on many topics. Although they may absorb new knowledge slowly, they are less likely to forget it. Philosophical Palm individuals prioritize ideals over material gains.

7. Pointed Palm Shape

This shape is predominantly found in women, with very few men possessing Pointed Palms. These palms are narrow, sharp, and thin, indicating individuals not accustomed to hard labor. The palm’s color significantly affects its interpretation; red Pointed Palms may indicate a life of hard work, particularly in service to a partner, with a higher likelihood of divorce. In contrast, white or pink Pointed Palms are associated with a more leisurely life, akin to that of a well-to-do lady.

8. Mixed Palm Type

Most people’s palms are a combination of the types mentioned above, incorporating characteristics of multiple palm shapes.

In general, disproportionate body and palm sizes (a small person with large palms or a chubby person with slender palms) are considered less favorable for wealth accumulation, whereas a lean person with a plump palm is seen as more conducive to amassing wealth.

The classification above aligns with modern and international palmistry standards. However, traditional Chinese palmistry also categorizes palms into five types based on elements: Metal (similar to Square), Water, Wood (akin to the Philosophical Palm), Fire (comparable to the Pointed Palm), and Earth (a mix of Square and Round Palms), each with distinct traits and preferred colors for auspicious interpretation.

Understanding palm shapes is crucial, but analyzing the hand’s texture, thickness, and flexibility is equally important for a comprehensive palmistry reading. For further reading: Hand Texture, Thickness, and Flexibility in Palmistry
