Palms up by Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Palmistry is a prehistoric divination because we have had our hands long before any written language, occult symbols or symbolic languages such as runes and because of that, diviners have a full and unwritten past. The more modern roots of palmistry came through India and also the Chinese book I Ching or at least that is what is said, I am sure many places on earth have practiced the art. Its also endured and survived the skeptics.
I have had my palm read three times in my life, but the last one was the best, I was around 37 years old, already having been an astrologer for twenty years and a symbolist, so I understood the readings and descriptions by the palmist. The last palmist was an elderly gentleman around 85 years old and still reading palms, he took my hands and began to draw on them with his red marker while he was reading them. He wore very thick glasses and I thought it was because his eyesight was bad that he used the marker, but apparently Palmists do that.
