What is written in your palm



Although palmistry is a skill that is developed but for some people they are gifted with an innate talent of seeing through the palm and feeling the pulse of the person. Long time ago in China the practice of determining the pulse is not only what western medicine does of counting the pulse rate but ancient doctors of the East and some would be able to sense your illness just by checking your palm.

Many books have been written and continue to be published about palmistry. But indeed only few are gifted to read the lines of the palm properly and to foretell the past, present and future of the person. But again I believe the future is yet to come and the person whether destiny or fate still has some influence of what she/he would want to happen to his/her life.

So what wikipedia tells about palmistry: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmistry)


Palmistry or chiromancy (also spelled cheiromancy, Greek kheir (χεῖρ, ός), “hand”; manteia(μαντεία, ας), “divination”), is the art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading, or chirology. The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations. Those who practice chiromancy are generally called palmistspalm readershand readershand analysts, or chirologists.


Palmistry is a practice originating in the Far East.[1] The practice of palmistry has been used in the cultures of India, Tibet, China, Persia, and some countries in Europe. Studies show that most ancient communities like the Hindus, Sumerians, Tibetans, Hebrews, Babylonians, and Persians were greatly interested in the study and practice of palmistry.

It is believed[2] that Palmistry originated in India with its roots in (Hindu) Astrology (known in Sanskrit as Jyotish), Chinese Yijing (I Ching), and Roma(Gypsy) fortune tellers.[2] The Hindu sage Valmiki is thought [3] to have written a book several thousand years ago, whose title translates in English as "The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry", comprising 567 stanzas.[3][4] Renowned palmist Cheiro learnt palmistry in India where he is believed to have read ancient scriptures on palmistry. From India, the art of palmistry spread to China, TibetEgyptPersia and to other countries inEurope [2][5] From China, palmistry progressed to Greece where Anaxagoras practiced it.[2] Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) discovered a treatise on the subject of palmistry on an altar of Hermes, which he then presented to Alexander the Great (356–323 B.C.E.), who took great interest in examining the character of his officers by analyzing the lines on their hands.[6] Aristotle stated that "Lines are not written into the human hand without reason. They emanate from heavenly influences and man's own individuality." Accordingly, Aristotle, Hippocrates and Alexander the Great popularized the laws and practice of palmistry. Hippocrates sought to use palmistry to aid his clinical procedures. Modern palmists often combine traditional predictive techniques with psychologyholistic healing, as well as alternative methods of divination.

  • Edgar de Valcourt-Vermont (Comte de St Germain) founded the American Chirological Society in 1897
  • Count Louis Hamon (Cheiro) published Cheiro's Language of the Hand in 1894.[5]

History of Tarot

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Viscontisforzatarot.jpg)


The tarot (pron.: /ˈtær/; first known as trionfi and later as tarocchitarock, and others) is a pack ofplaying cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe to play a group of card games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.
The tarot has four suits (which vary by region, being the French suits in Northern Europe, the Latin suits in Southern Europe, and the German suits in Central Europe). Each of these suits has pip cards numbering from ace to ten and four face cards for a total of 14 cards. In addition, the tarot is distinguished by a separate 21-card trump suit and a single card known as the Fool. Depending on the game, the Fool may act as the top trump or may be played to avoid following suit.[1]
François Rabelais gives tarau as the name of one of the games played by Gargantua in his Gargantua and Pantagruel;[2] this is likely the earliest attestation of the French form of the name.[citation needed] Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play card games. In English-speaking countries, where these games are largely unplayed, tarot cards are now used primarily for divinatory purposes.[1][3] Occultists call the trump cards and the Fool "the major arcana" while the ten pip and four court cards in each suit are called minor arcana. The cards are traced by some occult writers to ancient Egypt or the Kabbalah but there is no documented evidence of such origins or of the usage of tarot for divination before the 18th century.[1]

Tagaytay My New Year Hideaway


(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2f/Taal_Volcano.jpg/800px-Taal_Volcano.jpg)


Tagaytay will be my refuge to reflect and re-energize for the New Year. Although the Chinese New Year or the Year of the Water Snake will be on February 10, 2013, still, I will be celebrating the Gregorian Calendar's New Year which will be in the next few days.

Tagaytay is my alternative to Baguio City, a place that I also love because of its nice weather. I learned that these days the weather is very cool although at this time so many people goes up to the mountain city away from their homes especially the folks of Manila.

To know more about Tagaytay people can go and visit this site for information -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagaytay

It would be really nice to just sit, experience the cool weather of Tagaytay and look at Taal Lake. As a resident of the city I would want to be away from the noise and pollution of toxic firecrackers during New Year.

What about you where are you spending your New Year?

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

The Snake () is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac and related to the Chinese calendar, as well as in related East Asian zodiacal or calendrical systems. The Year of the Snake is associated with the earthly branch symbol .

It is the enigmatic,  intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs.  Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.  People born in the Year of the Snake are keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.  They are great mediators and good at doing business.  Therefore, you should have good luck if you were born in the  Year of the Snake. 

So for 2013 it would be the Year of the Water Snake starting from 10 February 2013 up to 30 January 2014. This year all things will be possible.  Saving money and being thrifty should be your top priorities.  Delusion and deception are common in the year of water Snake.  Stay alert!  To gain the greatest benefits from this year, you must control spending and use your talents wisely.  If you are planning to get married or to begin a business partnership, be sure to thoroughly investigate the other person's finances and background before you legalize the alliance.

Contemplative and private, Snake people are not outwardly emotional.  They usually act according to their own judgment and do not follow the views of others. They can appear cunning and reticent and work very modestly in the business environment.  They will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to.  They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner.

Snake people become easily stressed and have to avoid hectic schedules or noisy atmospheres.  They need calm and quiet to thrive and succeed.  They must have sleep, relaxation, and peace  to live a long, healthy life.

Snake people are oversuspicious, which is their nature.  They hide their suspicion, and acting as if nothing is on their minds.  They like to think deeply, plan carefully and make a systematic and appropriate exposition of their views.

Snake people will face danger fearlessly and deal with unforeseen disasters. They are not annoyed by lack of money and are usually lucky enough to own everything they need.  They can be successful as long as they avoid excess spending.  Although they are intuitive, they should avoid dive right into decisions without weighing the consequences.
