Here are a few more symbols often found on the hand. Some are harmless, but most imply problems or temparary setbacks, and may weaken the line they are on.

The Cross - Problems and disappointments. Weakens any line it touches.

Islands - Hereditary problems such as physical (Heart), mental (Head) and illness (Life). Filled islands are called Dots and generally relate to temporary deleys or difficulties.

The Fork - Talants and gifts. Can show charm, wisdom, peace or fortune, depending on the location.

Three Pronged Fork - Sign of good luck, strengthens the line in question. If the line ends in many prongs, this is known as the Teasle and indicates deterioration with age.

The Bar - Delay or temparary barrier. Weakens any line it touches and may block positivity for a short time.

The Chain - Problems, distress and hard discition making. Warns of rouch times/battles.

The Grille - Indicates obstacles, instability or restlessness. Generally found only on the mounts.

The Psychic Cross - Said to indicate second-sight, psychic tendencies and superstition. Usually found between the Head and Heart lines.

The Triangle

This mark is usually formed when three lines cross and is often very clear. If the mark looks more like a tripod or spearhead, this is a good sign of success but not a triangle!

The Box

It can also be present on mounts where any negative points of the mount will be weakened. One special indication is a box on the Jupiter Mounts (known as the Teachers Square) which shows teaching tallent.
  • On fate line - A serious problem will arrise but will cause total ruin or loss.
  • On Head Line - Worries, stress and problems relating to work
  • On Heart Line - Emotional problems
