When the Line of Fate is itself double, it is a sign of
what is called “a double life,” but if, after running side by side for
some length these two lines join or become one, it foretells that “the
double life” has been caused by some great affection, that circumstances
prevented a union, but that the preventing cause will be removed at the
point where these two lines join.
When, however, a double Line of Fate is clearly marked, especially if
they incline towards different mounts of the hand, such a mark indicates
that two careers would be carried out simultaneously–one perhaps as a

When the Line of Fate is extremely faint or just barely traced through
the palm, it will be found to indicate a general disbelief in the idea of
Fate and Destiny. It is often found on the hands of very materialistic
persons, those who rebel against the idea that they are governed in any

as illegitimate birth.

Mount of Venus, is an almost certain indication of her seduction
An island in any part of the Plain of Mars indicates a period of great
difficulty, loss in one’s career, and in consequence, generally loss of
An Island on the Fate and Head Lines together means loss also, but more
brought on by the person’s own stupidity or lack of intelligence.
An island over the Fate and Heart Lines indicates loss and trouble
connected with affairs of the heart or brought about by the affections.
An island on the Mount of Saturn or towards the end of the Line of Fate
foreshadows that the career will finish in poverty and

may be expected, but when the cross is found on the Fate Line and on the
Mount of Saturn, the ending of such a Destiny will be some terrible
tragedy, generally one of public disgrace and public death.
