What does a Simian Line mean?
It’s where the head and the heart line are merged into a single line (sometimes called a Simian Crease). This usually means it’s hard to separate logic and feelings. It’s often associated with being a mystic, visionary, guru, or leader (best case) and a socially awkward outcast or crazy person at worst. If you have a simian line, you’re either a genius or insane if you believe what you read on the internet.
Most people have two major transverse lines in the upper half of the palm. In Palmistry and Hand Analysis these are called the Heart Line and the Head Line.
When the Heart Line and Head Line are fused together, only one major line is present, and it extends all the way across the hand from edge to edge. In Palmistry and Hand Analysis this is called a “Simian Line”. Medical references call it the “Proximal Transverse Palmar Crease” or “Single Palmar Crease”.
Approximately ten percent of the general population have a Simian Line, or variation of one.
The purest form of Simian Line is where only one line cuts across the hand, and there is no indication of it containing more than one line. However, there are many variations between the two examples above. Some of these possible variations are shown below along with the rules for analysis.
This is not a pure Simian Line, but rather a strong Heart Line that has captured the Head Line. This person will operate with nearly all heart and emotional energy and will have very little logic and mental power for making decisions and taking actions. Emotions will strongly rule every activity.
This shown is not a pure Simian Line, but rather a strong Head Line (blue) that has captured the Heart Line (red). This person will operate with nearly all head energy and will have very little emotional power for making decisions and taking actions. Logic, with little emotion, will strongly rule every activity.
This hand shows a piece of a Heart Line (1) and piece of a Head Line (2). Most likely only one of these pieces would be present on a hand with a Simian Line. Whichever piece is present would indicate that there is some of that energy strongly affecting all activities. For example, if only the Simian Line plus a piece of Heart Line (1) are present, this person’s Simian Line would have considerable influence from heart and emotional tendencies. A piece of Head Line (2) would lend considerable logic and mental influence.
This hand does not mean there are two Simian Lines possible. It just indicates that a high Simian Line (A) or a low Simian Line (B) is possible. It is quite difficult to discern which type one has if the line is somewhere in between the high and low positions. In any case, the higher the Simian Line is on the palm, the more emotional energy is affecting all activities. The lower the Simian Line is on the palm, the more logic and mental powers affect all activities.
People with Simian Lines generally live their life differently than most other people who do not have Simian Lines. Not necessarily living better nor worse. Just living more intensely with usually an undercurrent of uneasiness.
