Special Circumstances Regarding the Head Line
There are also some very special circumstances regarding the head line that we must look at. One is the Sydney line, a head line that crosses the entire hand to the percussion. The Sydney line is not to be confused with a simian line, when the head and heart line are conjoined (see Chapter 7). People with a Sydney line have much in common with those who have a simian line. They may be hyperactive, commanding, and directed, but can also be self-centered and proprietary. They value the acquisition of money and are good at using their brains to do so, but perhaps not in the most honest of endeavors. They put work before their emotional needs.
The Double Header
A double head line is also very unusual, but if it is present, it indicates financial success. The person may have two careers that demand different skills, but work may make the person too busy and take him away from personal interactions. As with all double lines, the second line protects against problems seen on the main head line.
Markings on the Head Line
Look to the section on the life line for a thorough discussion of what markings on a major line can represent. However, there is some additional information you need to know in order to interpret special markings found specifically on the head line.
A star can mean an injury to the head.
Small lines that criss-cross the head line can mean worry or headache.
A tassel indicates a weakening in the energy of the head line, and there is confusion and possible mental illness.
Islands on the line show worry about work or money, headaches, and the inability to concentrate, especially if found on the Saturn mount.
A fork on a head line signifies skill in business; if it appears on the Apollo mount, it may be a writer's fork, indicating skills as a writer.
A break on the head line is an event that results from a psychological cause or mental trauma. A square provides protection and an overlap recovery. If the break occurs below the Saturn mount, the hand belongs to a person who is reckless, clumsy, or prone to accidents.
