The line of Apollo or Sun has no fixed point of
origin nor is it found in all hands.
The Sun Line is found rising from various points in
the hand. In most cases, it rises from the plain of
Mars. It also rises from the Life line and Mounts of
Luna and Mars. In some hands, this line ends high up
on the Mount of Sun and in some other cases it does
not reach the Mount.
Some well known palmists say that the Sun line
should be looked on as a sister line of the Fate
Line or a second line to the latter. Palmists
generally agree that that the Sun line cannot exert
its influence if there is no fate line.
The points of origin of the Sun line as observed by
competent palmists are as follows:
1) Mount of Venus
2) Life line
3) Mount of Mars
4) Head line
5) Mount of Moon or Luna
6) The wrist ( near bracelets rascettes)
7) Mount of Mercury
8) Heart line

troubles indicated by the defects of the line. The

disciplines. A well marked trident or a star ending
the line tells of wealth and fame achieved through
the use of talent and intellect.
