Divination has existed in all cultures throughout history. It is the attempt to predict or control one's future or to gain access to hidden information by the assessment of various indicators or use of particular implements. Some “Christian” diviners have pointed to biblical examples of divination in order to justify their practices. This book examines where the power comes from; explains how the various implements (including games) are used; and warns of the potential dangers.

Chiromancy is, for the Occultist, the astral sign-manual contained in the hand. But it is not necessary to believe in Astrology tn order to believe in Chiromancy. In the same way as Chouasnard wants to arrive at a scientific Astrology, so Henri Rem wants, and he NII vs it himself, to “disoccult ” Chirology. He is entitled to do so. We are entitled, while respecting his method and admiring his work, to remain in our doctrinal atmosphere which arrives at the same conclusions, but maintains the link of harmony above pointed out. Let us note, however, that the disocculted Chirology keeps various astrological terms, such as the mounts of Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury or Venus, the line of the Sun, the plain of Mars, etc. It is true that it looks upon these merely as words for which it is inclined to substitute I hose of mounts of the index, the middle finger, the ring finger, the lines of health, of intuition, of fate, etc. All that has no importance. The main thing is that Chirology (which includes the traditional Chiromancy and Chirognomony) has to its credit, just as has Astrology, a considerable number of proved observations which, even if they do not rest on a valid theory, make it an actual science of great utility. But there is a chiromantic theory, whether we base it on Occultism ns being applied astrology, whether we take as its foundation, with Dcsbarolles, the animal electricity which is peculiarly noticeable in the hand, or relate it with L. Gastin to psycho-physics. Once more, one thing only counts—the amazing frequency of the correspondence l» tween the chiromantic elements and the temperament, the fate of (lie subject. This frequency has been observed for centuries, and constitutes owing to its repeated experience an empirical proof of almost indisputable value.
The possessors of such a line have the ability to study and understand occult
subjects. ... the Heart line right under the mount of Saturn, it means the person

ABOUT THE PALMISTRY BOOK I wrote this book from the knowledge I’d received as a result of reading numerous old palm-reading books. I especially liked the ones found in India. Also, I read palmistry books based on Egyptian and Chaldean knowledge. I added my own knowledge to the book too, born out of reading the palms of my clients. Because I have really lovely people ordering my services, they are happy to cooperate with me. Therefore, because of their willingness to talk about their personal lives, I’ve made some palmistry discoveries which I share in the book. PICTURE-RICH FOR EASY UNDERSTANDING This book mixes old with the new. Though it’s based on the ancient palmistry system, I use celebrity palm examples to illustrate many of the lines and hand shapes. I always found it frustrating that though the old palmistry books contain a wealth of information, they are often disorganized. For example, you discover palm illustrations pages after the appropriate lesson is given. So I tried to make my book as organized as possible, by providing an illustration after each explanation of the new line or mark. This book has several hundred illustrations of different palms, lines, and marks on hands. I tried to make the book as easy as possible to understand, therefore it contains many drawings.
