Palmistry: The Shape of the Hand

There are four general shapes of the hand, and these are related to the four elements of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water:
When considering the length of the palm:
When the vertical and horizontal measurements of the palm are approximately equal, it is considered a square palm.
A long palm is when its vertical measurement is longer than the horizontal measurement.
Fingers are considered long when the length of the middle finger is equal to or greater than three-quarters of the length (height) of the palm.
Fingers are considered short when the length of the middle finger is less than three-quarters of the length of the palm.
Air Hands are characterized by a square palm, long fingers, and thin, clear lines. These are the hands of intellectual and sociable people. They are often restless and in need of change and stimulation, mostly of the mental kind. As lovers, these people look for mental rapport above all else.
Earth Hands are characterized by a square palm, short fingers, strong or thick skin, and deep, clear, and straight lines. These are the hands of practical, down-to-earth people with strong vitality. They often have a strong connection to nature and the outdoors. As lovers, they are generally quite dependable and straightforward.
Fire Hands are characterized by long palms, short fingers, plentiful and prominent lines, and firm, warm skin. These are the hands of risk-takers and action-oriented people. As lovers, they are positive and confident, willing to take the lead.
Water Hands are characterized by long palms, long fingers, plenty of fine lines that are not always clear, and soft, damp skin. These hands indicate a creative, emotional person. As lovers, they are sensitive, vulnerable, a little naive, and focused on caring and being cared for.
