Which Hand To Reading in Astrology?

We have two palms, and according to palmistry, one of them is our dominant hand. By dominant hand, one means that the person writes with this hand. This represents the individual’s conscious hand. The other hand is considered the subconscious palm. In some variations of traditional palmistry, the other hand carries hereditary traits or even past life karma.

Customarily, the left palm is the potential that we are born with, while the right palm is the personality that we are set to realize. This can more commonly be translated as saying that the left is our past and the right is our future. Some even say that the right palm is more significant if the subject is male and the left palm if the subject is female.
