Palmistry is a very respected art in the Orient. The teaching goes that you can plot your entire lifetime through your palm (certain section of a line can correspond to a specific age), and the palmist will be able to tell you what will happen to you at age 40 when you are 20, etc.
The fascinating thing about the lines on the palm is, they change. Especially in your dominant hand. So if you go to a palmist and she tells you something good for your future, then she will say “please take good care of your palm” – meaning, you have to keep living a good, honest life so that your hands don’t change for the worse.
Similarly, if you have a not-so-good diagnosis from your palmist, he would say “Please make sure to change this and that about your lifestyle, and your palm can change.” The advice may include cultivating a sense of gratitude, respect for people, etc., so that you can start to attract better fortune into your life – it’s a pretty wise system.
Some people come to me and want me to tell them what’s going to happen 15 years from now, and I have to tell them “You know, that really depends.” Noel Tyl said that the practical range of forecasting for astrologers is about 1 to 2 years – anything longer starts to get impractical.
Throughout your life, your horoscope doesn’t change, but you will. Just like your palm. Your future (literally) is in your hand.
