Hand Shape Attributes

The hand shapes can be translated into elements. Most people dominantly relate to one hand shape or element, and can be a percentage of another hand shape or element.


Have you ever heard of the saying, “The four corners of the world?”

Well, this is referring to the four elements: Fire, Air, Earth, and Water

There is also the saying, “As above; so below, as within; so without.”


If your palm is long, and your fingers are short; then you’re a fire hand.

If your palm is long, and your fingers are long; then you’re a water hand.

If your palm is square, and your fingers are short; then you’re an earth hand.

If your palm is square, and your fingers are long; then you’re an air hand.
