Heart Lines ~ The Passionate

By Hand Analyst Kay Packard

The heart line is usually one of the most noticeable etchings in your palm.  A large part of your emotional requirements system can be deciphered from this one particular line.  The heart line starts on the outer edge of your palm, under your pinkie (Mercury) finger, and sprints along the top of the palm closest to the base of your fingers. For the hand analyst, the ending point of the line is the key factor in determining your emotional preferences.

Since we employ our emotions when interacting with others, I use this line to identify the relationship requirements system of the owner of the hand. Clients have found it very helpful to understand, clarify and articulate how they like to be treated in relationship? Knowing the preferences of others and adjusting to meet their needs is also crucial for maintaining relationships.

Heart-Lines 101

The Passionate Heart

Non-negotiable need: Stimulation

True Love: Passion

Theme Song: Girls (or Boys) Just Want to Have Fun

Gift: Spontaneity

Passionate Heart Line

Passionate Heart Line

The Passionate Heart line is easy to see in this photo (left) marked in red. It crosses the upper palm and ends up under the middle (Saturn) finger.

The Passionate Heart is ‘me’ oriented.  She (or he) has interactive tendencies that are fiery, excitable, fun loving, and zealous.  He or she wants spontaneity in the relationship. You and everyone else will typically know what she wants and she expects you to do the same.  When going on vacation she may select where to go and sign up for all the fun things to do based on her muse. She has no problem being the center of attention and emotionally independent (baring other contradictory markings in the hands and fingers).

Unlike the Big Heart, others’ needs and wants typically do not come before the Passionate Heart – until she’s in her advanced state.  Neither is right or wrong.  It’s all about emotional preferences in relationship at Life University.  Honoring our preferred style is a sacred act to our self.

The longer the heart line is, the more time the owner spends in it.  Because the heart line represents the emotional system and this heart line is long and curvy, there is strong desire for emotional ‘reaction’. Feelings are ‘worn on the sleeve’. When connections are broken, she typically moves on.

If you live with a Passionate Heart, two beneficial things you can do is 1) keep things exciting and 2) give her space to snap, crackle and pop.  A sharp verbal reaction with arms flailing is not to be taken personally.  Let her move through the animation.  An advanced Passionate Heart considers the desires of others too.

One of my friends has this line of “passion”.  We’ll call him Elvis.  His likes and dislikes are very strong and absolutely known.  Elvis thrives on quads, motor cycles, 4-wheeling and NASCAR. Elvis has learned to ‘include’ his wife and children by buying toys for them too – whether they want it or not.  When I visit, he puts us all in his mini-jeep and we crawl up un-chartered hillsides over rocks and through the mud.  We don’t worry; the vehicle has a roll bar!

Note of caution:  You have TWO hands, therefore two heart lines. Your dominant hand displays characteristics to the ‘outer’ public world.  Your less dominant hand shows traits revealed at ‘home’ where you’re most comfortable and not on display. The description from the heart lines are only one aspect of so many that can be read in the hands.  Also, this is not an exercise in predictions or fortune telling, although a fortune will may find!

The Rational Romantic

Since we transmit our emotions when interacting with others, I interpret the heart line to identify the relationship requirements system of the owner of the hand. Some people find it favorable to have the ability to understand, clarify and articulate how they like to be treated in relationship. Also, knowing the preferences of others and working to meet their needs is essential for maintaining loving relationships.

The Rational Romantic

Non-negotiable need: Meaning

 True Love: Conversation

Shows love through: Consideration

 Gift: Analyzing emotions

 RationalRomantic Heart Line

 The Rational Romantic heart line is overlaid with fuchsia ink (above).  It traverses the upper palm and ends beneath the index (Jupiter) finger, but farther down into the palm than the Big Heart (last issue). 

The Rational Romantic is also ‘other’ oriented.  She (or he) is considerate, thought-full, analytical and reasoning with emotions. He or she wants to think through all the possibilities of feelings and then discuss them. She likes to fulfill your requests. To her fighting is painful.   

If you live with a Rational Romantic, one of the most beneficial things you can do is 1) converse with her and 2) allow her think, think, think about how she feels, feels, feels.  To others this may appear to be ‘overprocessing’.  It’s her natural style to ‘think-through.’  Appreciate her for acting upon your wishes – as a result of her ‘processing’. 

It may be helpful to affectionately remind her to consider her own passions and to pursue them besides yours.  A balanced Romantic continues to honor others’ requests and is also comfortable voicing her own needs, wants and even demands. 

One of my life-long male friends has this heart line of reasoning in romance. He is an involved conversationalist with the crowd and his wife in the group. He can become verbally animated on emotional topics. At times I hear him clarifying what he ‘meant’ to say so that he’s understood correctly.  He’ll notice how his words affect the feelings of his wife and consider the effects. He regularly writes adoring words on cards to show his love for her. 

Cheers to living your emotional style – naturally.

Turn up the Volume in your Relationships

By Kay Packard

One of the most effective ways I’ve found to connect with a friend, family member or partner is to understand their preferred style of relating. Coming at the relationship solely from our perspective won’t provide positive results. Imagine the benefits of knowing how the other person likes to be treated and communicated to in the relationship. This isn’t about selling out and bending over backwards to accommodate another person, this is about truly seeing another as well as yourself from an emotional standpoint.

Emotions are tricky business. Water rules the emotions. Think of how difficult it is to control water. It forms to any container it’s in otherwise it runs-amuck. Engineering, materials and man-power are required to build a dam – all in attempt to manage its contents. Compare a bucket of sand to a bucket of water. Which is heavier? Water.

heartSo for us to have thriving relationships that deal largely with emotions we must understand the force behind emotions. And for every person this is different. There is no cookie cutter formula to adapt and connect to another person. Listening is crucial.

When interpreted, the heart lines in the hands provide astounding and reliable information about the emotional requirements system of the owner of the hands. There are four basic types of heart lines. They can be called: The Passionate (very expressive and energetic), The Nurturer (caring, connecting, and giving), The Hermit (reserved and the Doer) and The Thinker (considerate and analyzing).

The first step is to recognize your type so that you better know yourself, your needs and what is important to you. If you’re fulfilling your needs systems, you’re much more likely to be present in any relationship. “Present” may take on a new meaning once you better know yourself.

The next step is to consider the emotional type of the other person. The Passionate will express her feelings in the moment without a lot of consideration how it will impact the other person. On the upside you can trust and depend that ‘what you see is what you get’. They express what they want, now, and expect you to, too. On the down side it’s important not take their sharp and fiery responses personally. The Thinker is opposite of The Passionate. The thinker is much more considerate and deliberate in their emotional expression. Before they speak they think through many scenarios of how the other person will respond to their comments. They may even readjust their emotional system for the other person to avoid a conflict. The Passionate is comfortable with conflict, excitability, and unpredictability; The Thinker is not.

The Nurturer keeps connections in tact through socializing and coordinating gatherings. She (or he) usually likes to touch, feel and show her love. She will find out what others like and don’t like, sometimes at the expense of herself, and accommodate their needs. The Hermit, on the other hand, shows his love by doing – independently. Mowing the yard, taking out the trash, fixing the cabinet hinges is how The Hermit shows his love. He (or she) also has a non-negotiable need for freedom. Often times he finds freedom through work therefore usually gets the label “you’re busy.” If The Nurturer doesn’t feel connections and The Hermit doesn’t have space an emotional explosion will ensue. In this case ‘tears’ appear on The Nurture and the ‘predetermined escape route’ is taken by The Hermit.

It’s truly amazing any of us get along at all. But there is hope. Wesunrise simply need to understand and LIVE our emotional type and bring in a bit of the opposite type. This is the stuff that’s uncomfortable. When we weave in the opposite of ourselves we become more whole and able to adapt. Ideally this creates more peace within us. Operating from a place of peace will help us to listen more deeply to another. When it’s appropriate consider turning up the volume and listening to your own and others’ needs in relationship. It could lead to one of the most meaningful experiences you’ll ever have.
