Welcome to God Given Glyphs

My name is Jennifer Hirsch. I’ve read hands and taught chirology, palmistry and hand reading for 30 years. Our hands and their forms and markings are maps to self-understanding. Reading hands with chirology is a point of departure to an inner guided tour which, is in many ways, incomparable.

Chirology (Gr-kheri-hand – logos – knowledge) is a universal hand reading style and a dialogue therapy. Holding another person’s two hands in yours and speaking and listening together is an intimate, alchemical, potent and super-interesting healing system. For anyone wanting to learn to read hands, either professionally or as a hobby, I teach classes in Johannesburg, as well as offering a comprehensive online hand reading training course. I also offer books, private and Skype consultations, articles, talks and topic workshops.

Chirology’s 5 element interpretive system includes traditional palmistry but is more primarily designed around the principles and characteristics of the elements, earth, water, fire, air and chi. The how-to of chirology and palmistry involves examination of lines, glyphs, mounts, textures, shapes, colors and many other hand features that reveal surprisingly accurate information about our authentic character, temperament, personality, patterns of behavior and even events that have left their imprint. 

Today .... I have just this morning reached 300 subscribers at my YouTube channel (3 is my favourite number). Today's video (The Fire Realm - Counselling with Chirology and Palm Reading) just happened to edit to exactly 11:11 minutes. And... oh the wonder.....today 08.08.2020.... Sun in Leo..... is the "Lion's Gateway", where Sirius, the Dog (God?) Star rises and aligns with Orion's belt over the pyramid of Giza. Many ancient cultures knew the rising of Sirius as being a gateway between the physical and spiritual worlds. Must say I'm feeling highly energized by the magic .... my approach to hand reading isn't "pop".... it's taken well over a year to reach 300 subscribers.... feeling an inner encouraging Yes! to keep it up.

I received this marvellous feedback from a student in London who has recently completed an 18 lesson chirology and palmistry training course with me. Blessed I am with my love of the hands!

"My great thank you for this most inspiring, energizing, insightful experience. It was such a pleasure learning from you. Your knowledge, patience and teaching ability are incredible and I'm so glad I took the plunge.

At first, whilst taking part in a rather disappointing beginner's course at an organization in London, I was simply browsing YouTube for clips of hand readings and came across yours.

Compared to many others I'd seen yours are professional, well made and really informative. I thought if I just watch enough of these, I'll learn a lot, and I did. The studying with your patient support and all that incredible learning material was intense and enjoyable. Jen - please accept my sincere thank you for being an inspired teacher.

I ordered your book 'Illustrated Chirology' and that got me more deeply interested and triggered the desire to study directly with you. I knew that I'd be in good hands and it would be money well spent. Annett T.

I wrote this book about dermatoglyphics "God Given `Glyphs - Fingerprints" back in 2007 - 2009, took me 2 years to create, what a labor of love it was.

Hi hand readers! Please join our YouTube community. I post a new video every Saturday.

With palmistry, depicted in lilac on the left, my way of interpreting your hands is more specifically intuitive. Our attention is on future; together we tune into desired or feared outcomes.

With 5 element chirology, depicted in blue on the right, my focus is on counseling and coaching within the context of the 5 Realm model. Focus is on supporting you in your current time situation.



Book Reviews


“Your published materials are my go to resources when studying palms. I have over 20 palmistry books but always refer to your e-books, training manual and God Given Glyphs. The material is thorough, specific, and well illustrated. Thank you so much!”

Lori Owen USA


“I want to express my admiration for the work you produced in the form of this book. The information I gained from it for the last three readings was astoundingly accurate. Your book, without a doubt, resulted in my increased love for the art of hand reading.”

Morné van Heerden Jnr SA


“You’ve outdone yourself This is your life’s work in one well-researched and beautiful book! It’s concise, and I love the way it’s set out, the relevant topics, the illustrations, and the interweaving with aspects of palmistry. This should be every hand reader’s ‘go to’ book!”

 5 Element Chirology & Traits of Being A – Z

“The more I look at your book, the more I see how much work has gone into it and how great it is. You manage to condense the meanings so succinctly and to the point. I love the format with the labelled illustrations. You really should be proud of these works! I love the colors and book cover design, gorgeous. Beautifully presented, and the info I read so far is spot on! It is about time someone made 5 Element hand analysis more available to the public!”
