A really neat webpage that talks about Chirognomy or the study of the size, shape and appearance of the hand. It talks about how certain elements have certain hand shapes. You can click on the link to read the whole article but essentially…

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) : elongated palm with short fingers; strong lines in the palm.

Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) : square palm with short fingers; not very many lines but the few are strong and well defined.

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) : long fingers with a square-shaped palm; clear, abundant lines on the palm of hands.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) : long fingers and palms; fine, spidery lines on palms of hands.

So, after reading this, take a look at your hands. Do they fit the criteria? I know mine sure do (and if you’re curious, I’m a Taurus).
