Palmistry is one of the oldest, yet reliable means of determining the future and personality of someone. Palmistry uses the shape of a person's hands among many other things to determine what the future will be like for the person in question. While every person has different personalities and traits, there are 5 general categories that relate to all of us.
Chinese Palmistry, which is one of the oldest methods of palmistry starts with defining the shape of a person's hands and then matching it with the 5 elements present on Earth. These 5 elements include Water, Earth, Fire, Metal and Wood.
The 5 categories mentioned above were the 5 broad categories that the Chinese used to segment the 5 general categories of Earth and then forming a general perception about them. Here we have these 5 methods and what the primary traits of these people are.
People with the Earth hands tend to have thick fingers and thick palms. These hands are probably the most common type and are easy to read. The base of the thumb in an Earth Hand is fleshy and thick with large wrists.
People from Earth hand are by nature very humble, modest and really down to earth. They are attached to the roots they come from and regardless of what happens in life, they will never let go of their roots or their history.
People with the Earth hands also tend to fall in love quite easily. They are fond of thinking from their hearts and rarely put their mind into the process when it comes to contemplating about love. Love for them is a matter of heart and not mind.
People with the fire hands have long palms and their fingers, very much like their palms, are extremely long as well. This adds to the length of their hands. Their knuckles and their nails are not really well structured or defined.
People with fire hands are really driven at all times and have a lot of ambition in life. They are also quick thinkers and are always alert to the surroundings nearby. Their minds are working 24/7 and it is their ability to interpret things faster that places them higher.
People with Fire hands are also the decision makers in any group. They don't want to give away their ability to take decisions and want to remain at the forefront when it comes to decision making or any other power task.
People with water hands are really talented and there is no doubting their hard working abilities. They have an industrious mind, which is always directed towards achieving success in life and their relationships. They are protective of loved ones, but know when to stop.
Wood hands are the most unique ones from the rest because they have a revealing bone structure and are quite skinny. Their knuckles are usually well defined because literally almost every bone in their hand is easily visible.
People with wood hands are supposedly the creative ones. They have the mindset that studies each and every perspective in detail. Since they are highly creative, they tend to be in a world of their own, where they seldom have any room for others.
Wood hand people are really emotional when it comes to their feelings. They are emotional by nature and both their creativity and emotions are tied together. They do not fall in love easily, but once they do, they give their best shot.
The last type is that of Metal hands, who usually have square-shaped nails, fingers and palms. The palms are fleshy, soft and elastic. The thick base in their palm is usually the one feature that separates them from all other hands.
People with metal hands are highly skilled when it comes to leadership skills. They are naturally talented and have skills pertaining to management and leadership. They keep a check on personal bias and manage relationships with an overall perspective.
People with Water hand have palms that are very broad and smooth, but fingers that are largely stubby. Their nails are usually longer than the others and their knuckles are really well defined and structured. Their finger tips are extremely round.
They may be beautiful, rich and famous, but celebrities are human too, and that means they're just as prone to getting sick as the rest of us. And just like us, some celebs even live with chronic conditions that can take a toll on their day-to-day lives. But eczema – also referred to as dermatitis – is a common dry skin condition. Symptoms include dry, itchy, red and scaly skin. In more extreme cases, the skin can crust and bleed. According to the National Eczema Association, 1 in 10 individuals will develop eczema in their lifetime. And given these statistics, it’s hardly a surprise there are a few celebrities out there who have eczema too.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, 37, suffered from eczema in her teens. Kate was bullied heavily whilst attending Downe House girls’ boarding school, according to the Duchess’s friend Jessica Hay. According Hay, Middleton’s bullies made fun of her eczema. ‘It didn’t help that she was so tall and self-conscious about her eczema,’ Hay told CelebNow. Studies have shown children with moderate and extreme atopic dermatitis are more likely to suffer from conditions like anxiety and low self-esteem, which has a knock-on effect on their school work and ability to make friends.
Although Brad Pitt, 55, has not spoken about the issue himself, his co-star Cate Blanchett disclosed that Pitt was suffering from eczema during filming of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In an interview with Scotland’s Daily Record, the actress said, ‘We went through three weeks of make-up tests and he was covered in eczema from it all.’ Blanchett sweetly loaned Pitt her skin cream to deal with the dermatitis, that had developed due to the use of prosthetic makeup worn during filming. Prosthetic make-up isn’t the hugest concern for us non-Hollywood folk, nevertheless, what is a concern, is how makeup can trigger eczema flair up. Unless makeup brushes are constantly washed (let’s be real, they’re not), they become a breeding ground for bacteria. This can lead to clogged pores and irritated sensitive skin.
Adele, 31, stated that her eczema flared up when she became a new mom. During a press conference in 2013 after her Golden Globe win for Best Original Song for the Bond film Sykfall, the singer said: ‘I am exhausted. That’s how [motherhood] changed me. I have eczema from boiling bottles.’ Research carried out by the BMJ (formerly known as the British Medical Journal) has revealed that contact dermatitis has the potential to have ‘detrimental’ impact and in the worst case scenarios can even threaten some sufferers ability to work.
