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
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.
