Dear Elle

I just want to know how many children will I have, I have been married for now 13 years.

I have been to the doctors and they told me nothing is wrong with me but why can’t I get pregnant. Is there anything in the palm that could indicate if I will have a child?

Patrice, Sydney

Thanks for your email, and there are indicators in a palm that can show indications of your fertility on the major and minor lines.


The bracelet lines are a series of horizontal lines on the wrist.

Most people have three bracelet lines. These are an ancient indicator of fertility and are connected with past lives also.  The uppermost line is related to fertility and your pregnancy. If the line is peaked or broken this can show difficulties in pregnancy. This is usually due to hormone imbalance only and it is advised to seek advice from a naturopath. If the upper line is broken care is also to be taken during pregnancy as complications are very likely.

Major line indicators include the life line and heart line

Signs you may be pregnant are a very red lifeline and redness low on the Mount of Venus. If you have having pain from periods this will also show up as a circle or hash symbol very low on the lifeline or on the Mount of Venus.  A circle symbol on the Mount of Mercury the area under the little finger is more likely to be a blockage such as a cyst causing infertility.

Signs showing a child in your future

A child is seen on the heart line with branches reaching up toward the middle finger of Saturn. Also a classic indicator is on the marriage lines under the little finger for vertical branches for boys and diagonal branches for girls. If the branch is attached to the line, as in it does not cut through the marriage line, this shows a healthy child. Square symbols can be found attached to these branches known as your angels who are there to help your children.
