Travel in the Palm of Your Hand
The most obvious way to start your exploration is to see if you have any travel lines. These lines generally begin at the bottom of the percussion, by the rascette, and extend across your palm, crossing over the mount of Luna, and perhaps extending upward to the heart line. If strong, they sometimes extend all the way across the palm to the mount of Venus. Travel lines represent journeys of discovery, adventure, or healing.
Each of the small travel lines extending from the heel represents a journey, so they can be read individually. The longer and stronger the line, the more influential that particular trip will be over the course of your life. The lower on the hand the travel lines are, the more likely travel will be a growth experience. Travel lines originating higher indicate more problematic travel.
Is travel important?
It's good to remember that the importance of travel to the individual whose palm is being read, as seen in the depth and length of the travel lines, is relative. One deep travel line may mean a great deal to someone who travels little but makes one major journey, perhaps to college or a new home. But to someone who travels often, each individual trip may be of lesser importance and may be seen in smaller, lighter lines.
The presence of one heavy travel line that goes far shows that you will travel often, whether on major adventures, on business trips, or moving the home for work or family, but always for substantial reasons that will affect your life. However, if you have a series of lighter lines, you may be traveling a lot but taking smaller trips and vacations that have little influence over your life as a whole.
All of life is a journey, and the markings of the palm are important guides in this journey. But this is especially true when you travel outside of your home and town, leaving behind your usual support system and venturing into the unknown.
Travel brings discovery and growth, but it is also a time to be especially wary and careful, and good guidance is essential. The things learned through palmistry can be a valuable lodestar for the traveler setting out on a journey, for the hand has much to tell us.
If you have a heavy deep travel line on the mount of Luna, you probably love to travel — but beware. This line warns of daring, adventurous, or downright dangerous behavior, so avoid taking risks, whether they are physical or emotional, when you are traveling away from home.
Like the other lines of the hand, travel lines can be intersected, and the lines intersecting them will tell their own story. If your travel line crosses your life line at a certain point, this shows that your trip will be made for reasons of health. It may be a trip to a more healthful area, a stay in an out-of-town hospital for treatment, or a visit to a spa for recuperation and healing. If the travel line crosses the fate line, it shows a trip that will improve the life of the individual in ways involving career, security, and responsibility.
