Chinese Hand Analysis
This issue we look for SUCCESS indications that show up on the palm. On your hands, the SUCCESS line supports the FATE line.
It can be two separate lines, or it can be one line that breaks into two lines, with both going vertically up the palm. When there is only a single line, it is deemed to be the SUCCESS line and this suggests the person can easily acquire wealth without much effort.
The ideal SUCCESS line is straight, prominent and thin. It should stretch from the base of the palm and go right up to the base of the third finger (next to the little finger). This is the Star of Sun on your hand.
When the line is unbroken and well formed, it indicates success from a young age and someone who will not have financial worries.
A long SUCCESS line which stretches from the VENUS star (also known as the Golden Star located inside the arc formed by the LIFE line) to the SUN star is a reliable indication of great success, wealth and a brilliant marriage.
