In my home I have a large collection of books. Maybe you have a large collection, too. Perhaps you have a few books that are your favorites and you reread them every year or two. But if you have favorites, why read others? The answer, of course, is so that you can understand and experience new things. Maybe you'll find a new favorite, too.
For many decades I have worked with astrology. It's my favorite. But I have also worked with the Tarot, runes, and other divinatory systems. In recent years, palmistry seems to have been overlooked by most readers. Perhaps they think that clients won't see the magick unless there are mystic tools on the table.
I think this is shortsighted. Palmistry can be a wonderful addition to your divinatory skills and can be used at a moment's notice. And one of the best introductions to this ancient art is Richard Webster's Palm Reading for Beginners.
One of the most famous palmists of all time was Count Louis Hamon who used the name "Cheiro." He lived into the 20th century and looked a bit like Franklin D. Roosevelt. Because of his amazing skills he was in demand by famous personalities all over the world and he hobnobbed with them all.
Now, I can't guarantee you'll become as famous as Cheiro, but I can assure you that with this book you will learn how to read palms. You'll learn the meaning of the shape of the hand and all the lines. You'll be able to interpret the all of the major and minor lines, the phalanges (sections of fingers) and the nine mounts on the palm. The book also shows how you can blend all of the information into a coherent, inviting, and exciting reading.
So whether you want to learn your first method of divination or want to add to what you already know, this is a book you should study and use.
While Llewellyn's Classic Tarot has my name on the cover, I did not so much design this project as direct it. Llewellyn wanted a deck that was designed to be faithful to the traditional tarot images, symbols, and meanings recognizable to most modern tarot readers and students. Creating a faithful yet new expression of timeless tarot imagery is... read this article
