Bracelet lines, which are the curved and horizontal lines directly below the palm of one’s hand, are metaphysically significant in a variety of ways. Most notably, these lines, also known as Rascette lines, indicate how long and prosperous one’s life will be. However, they can also give clues to destiny, health, and balance of mind, body, and spirit. To find what your bracelet lines mean, you must look at the number of lines you have as well as their respective shapes, lengths, and depths.
The first line, which is the line directly below the palm, when defined and unbroken signifies at least a life of 28 years but possibly much longer.
The second line, if defined and unbroken, hints at a much longer life of at least 56 years and one that is prosperous and joyful.
The third line, which is the lowest line most people have, indicates a life of around 84 years or longer and one in which you will be greatly influential. This could mean that you’ll be famous or that you’ll have a grand impact on your field.
While most people have three bracelet lines, some fortunate ones will have four lines. For these people, the fourth line strengthens the third line. Those with four bracelet lines have a great chance to live to be nearly 100 years old and to have an even greater influence on the world around them.
However, Bracelet or Rascette lines have different implications for both men and women.
For men, if their first line is broken, curving upwards, or undefined, it indicates that he may have problems with his prostrate, or that he may even be sterile. If his second line is broken, curving upwards, or undefined, then the man’s health concerns can be even greater.
For women, if their first line is broken, curving upwards, or undefined, it indicates that she may have serious problems with giving birth and as such can be limited in the number of children she will conceive. Even worse, if her second line is broken, curved upwards, or undefined then it will magnify these concerns.
It is the general consensus that the first bracelet line is the most important. The reason for this is that it is the first indicator of life and prosperity. Without this line, one’s life may be short, difficult, and laborious. Furthermore, if one’s first bracelet line is anything other than well defined and complete, major health problems may be a concern in addition to the likely possibility of infertility. Any line present after the first bracelet line strengthens the affects of the first, so these are often considered less important but still greatly influential.
While the study of palmistry often disagrees on the meaning of individual lines, the significance of each bracelet line is traditionally agreed upon. With the first line indicating health and a long life and each subsequent line signifying a longer, healthier, and more prosperous life, these bracelet lines are necessary to any palm reading.
