People who keep photocopies of their hands, sometimes notice the lines on the hands changing every 6-12 months.
There is a general clash between the traditional and modern forms of palmistry, which are split on which palm to read and which to exclude. In some cultures, palmists choose to read the right hand for their male clients and the left hand for females. In India, for instance, the right hand symbolizes Shiva and the left hand represents Shiva's consort, Shakti. Whereas, the Chinese technique of palmistry takes the opposite approach and reads the right hand for women (Yin-Dark) and the left hand for men (Yang-Light).

The handedness technique takes a completely different approach in palmistry, by opting to not read the hand that is non-dominant, thereby completely ignoring the fact that humans are born ambidextrous, and are trained to become right- or left-handed.

The left versus right brain map palmistry technique goes many steps further, by opting to connect the left brain to the right hand and vice versa. Let's find out which palm to read from this AstrologyBay article.
Which Hand is Correct for Palm Reading?
The Dual Hand Technique
Giving shape hand
One hand cannot be read without the other. Both hands must be read, if we wish to unravel what the lines of our hands have to say about our life. Many palmists believe that both the dominant as well as the non-dominant hand must be read, because when read individually, each palm presents its own unique features, and plays a significant role in revealing information about the seeker.
The Non-dominant Hand
Left open hand
The non-dominant hand reveals the innate potential that we were born with. The lines on the non-dominant hand are always remarkably different from the dominant hand, because of this very reason. When this hand is compared with the dominant hand, it may be revealed that our true potential remains unharnessed or that we have misused it in some way. The non-dominant hand can also help us gain deeper insight about our past lives. This hand can show the life we could have lived, had our experiences of life not altered its foreordained path.
The Dominant Hand
Right open hand
The dominant hand is the hand that we use the most, and for carrying out day-to-day activities such as writing and eating. It is also our strongest hand and often used for picking up heavy objects. For those who are ambidextrous, their dominant hand would be the one they use more often. Usually, the hand with which we eat is our dominant hand. It represents the journey of our life so far. It throws light on the decisions we have taken within this lifetime and the things we have done, that have altered the path of our destiny. When both the hands are compared, it can tell us a lot about whether the life we are living now is better or far worse than shown by the non-dominant hand.
Why Do the Lines Keep Changing?
The lines on our palm keep changing. Which makes us wonder-if the non-dominant hand was decided at birth, how can its lines keep changing? Shouldn't our destiny remain unaltered, at least on the non-dominant palm? The answer to this question lies in the changes that we make in our lives, and the way our dominant hand changes, thus altering our ordained destiny as well. It appears as if each one of us is born with a purpose; however, we may or may not achieve our true goal, if we take the wrong path or make the wrong decisions. We might find ourselves lost in a no man's land, where our lives seem unfulfilled or stagnant. Some decisions we make today, may alter the pace of our journey and make us reach our goals much later or faster, as compared to the signs mentioned on the non-dominant palm. That being said, there will be sure telltale signs on our dominant hand, that will throw light upon all those factors that may have caused the lines on the palm to change.
So, the next time you fix a hand reading session, inquire whether the palmist reads both hands or not. Insist that he/she read both your palms, and give a comparative assessment of your destiny as it was meant to be, how it has turned out, and where it will end up in future.
