will suffer from cold and phlegm complaints. It is possible he will have been born in Meena rashi. If in the middle of this line we notice a cross mark or the scissors sign, it indicates that the person will give up the profession which yields him sustenance between his 37'/2 and 39'/4 years and migrate to an alien place. During this same period the wife will have to encounter some danger. The native will be of a suspicious nature.
Figure 31 (7): When in the neighbourhood of the Malika line, we observe the auspicious signs offish, creeper, leaf, flag and the cast out skin sheath of a serpent then the native will rise to the status of a lord as it were.
When we notice lines resembling the horn, serpent, watchman, teeth scorpion or crab, the native will pursue the servant's profession or some other ordinary calling.
The horn line, a splitting line or scissors sign indicate hindrances to the prosperity of the progeny.
If the thumb manifests two straight wheat lines and they do not join and run apart, the income flows to the native as does the water of a river, while the expenditure will be just the same.
In case there are dots or dents over the line, the native will suffer from ill-health, while such black tint on the line indicates that the native will suffer from rheumatism; with the presence of a white tint (shade) the native will be a victim to diseases issuing from cold, while a very red colour reflects great strain and stress from heat and bile. When the line is of a dusky ash colour, (a mixture of white and black), it indicates that the native will ail from rheumatism, gastric trouble and dyspepsia.
Figure 32 : Here the thumb appears like a pot; but is bent from S to A. When it is curbed like this, the native will have great discretion; and as it seems to be bulging from S to R the person will have a helping nature and will be a gufide to others. The portion from ? to G Is thick and firm and hence the native will command power, pride and influence in society. The Malika rekha which runs from R to G is bead-shaped (or chain shaped) and hence, the members of his family will be brave> rich and renowned and the native will have a large number of relations. The native will be wealthy and courageous.
Figure 33 : This is very much like Figure 32 described above. But. the shape of this thumb is found in a female's hand. When a woman possesses such a thumb she will become the wife a prince or will rise to a very exalted position or gain power and fame in the political and social fields. She will command the comforts of peons, vehicles, riches, lands, residence etc.. and feels happy in the company of sons and grandsons. She will be brave and courageous. Individuals with thumbs of the 32nd and 33rd types will have no cares or worries from the beginning to the end, will be rich, will acquire fame and enjoy good dishes.
Figure 34 : Here, the thumb has very thick and rough lines. The Malika and wheat lines are very thick and dented. This indicates the profession of a servant interested in other's welfare. (Persons with this type of thumb will pursue some technical profession and become foremen, supervisors, drivers etc.).
Figure 35: This is the imprint of the right thumb of a male. While measuring the time limits of lines, the letters indicate the starting point, the boyhood and while ending, denote the last years of the native.
From the commencement of the life line A to the end of Venus mount ? we see plenty of white dots and tiny lines. This signifies that the native is rich by birth. From the middle of the thumb, we notice the
fame. The Rati rekha which lies above this line has many subsidiary lines joining it which implies that the native revels in the company of many keeps.
Figure 36 : Here, from E to F we see the form of a lens. Besides, we find on the thumb, long Kesara rekhas. The Rati-rekha D has proceeded beautifully over a long distance. And, in the end we observe ?, a small lens line containing Kesara lines therein. This points to an easy, comfortable and happy life. The yogas occur as in Figure 25.
Figure 38 : Here, the thumb is long and the wheat line extends to ACB. More than this. The Rati rekha (within the square) has assumed the form of a complete fish a pretty face, tail and stomach. This suggests that the native will gain great riches, fame and power after marriage. And, since the Malika line D possesses the beads-line like a chain from the beginning, it shows that the native is born in a rich family.
form of a small fish which indicates that from the middle age the native acquires immense wealth and
Figure 40 : We observe here that at the back of C, there are broken lines in the Malika and the Wheat
line is dented at the beginning. This means that the native will leave his birth place in his boyhood, undergo many hardships (until 30 or 31 years, upto C) while serving others. Now, from C, while joining AB we see the form of a bud in the Malika line. This means that the native will enjoy the great Raja Yoga from his 30th year and achieve distinction. The second of the wheat line has 5 good co-operative lines indicating good results and family happiness.
9. The Rati rekha is broken in the beginning, the native will have to face troubles through a woman, before marriage.
From ? to 9 appear to consist 2 lines. The person very much desires the association of women.
The above mentioned bud brings to the native riches, fame, house and progeny.
Figure 45: The thumb is pillar-shaped while the top part resembles the face of a lion. This indicates that the native is brave, disciplined and resolute. The line issuing from A proceeds uncut towards ? and at the end is bud-shaped. This indicates that the native is born in a rich house, is moderately happy in boyhood and acquires great wealth from his middle age. We notice the signs of the fish and square like triangle over the Malika rekha which points to the native founding different technical institutions and earning both riches and fame. The line ? (Mana) indicates the person's great fortune. ? and D lines, the long bye-lines (Kesara) imply very great fortune from the second half of life; the long D (Rati-rekha) indicates family happiness; and from A to D the skin ridges are not forked and are beautiful and there are not many Kesara rekhas on it and this means that the native will reap a large profit from working upon solid substances such as wood and metal.
47. Here, nucleus of the conch on the earth layer atop the thumb, seems to have risen up a little. This thumb too, is long as No. 45 described above. The native is courageous and adventurous. From 51 to 53 we find long Kesara rekhas. ACE inclusive of the Malika rekha below 53 (Chaturmalika) the four rekhas, (Thara) suggest that the native earns by the sale of articles of luxury and comfort. He will maintain different varieties of vehicles, will swell his earnings by a variety of bye-occupations, will have
