Luck Series # 4 – The Peacock’s Eye Glyph

The Peacock’s Eye – this variation is composed of a whorl pocketed inside a teardrop shaped loop.

The Peacock’s Eye – in this more delicate composition of a peacock’s eye, we find  a loop with ridges that converge to create an embedded core ‘eye’, sans any whorl.


Glyphs are pre-ordained, fixed, unchangeable cosmic imprints, each receiving and exuding in their own unique frequency. They are energy portals, thresholds through which we give and receive. In the same way that tattoos, amulets, talismans and lucky charms influence our energy field, so the glyphs on our fingertips, palms and soles of our feet are inscribed symbols which influence our way of being in the world.

This intriguing dermatoglyphic skin ridge pattern resembles the tail feather of a peacock.  In palmistry, a peacock’s eye on a finger denotes luck and protection for the owner. Peacock’s are ancient eastern symbols of beauty, prosperity, royalty, love, compassion, transmutation, the soul, and peace, thus the association of peacock’s eyes patterns in your hands with good fortune. Bearers of this auspicious marking are believed to be protected in dangerous situations.

In chirology, the air element is ascribed to the vortex-like whorl, or to the little, encapsulated part of the pattern, signifying a person who is analytical, observant, curious, communicative and independent.

The water governed loop part of the pattern shows imagination, flexibility, responsiveness and emotional sensitivity in a loving person who senses others’ emotions. Together, these chirologically associated traits are a positive match to the person’s manifestation of “luck” in their life.

Peacock’s eyes bring extra perspective and insight to any given situation, so owners of this “extra eye” could be a visionary, or have “an eye for the main chance”. They might be gifted with astute intuitive perception and able to see beyond the apparent. As a marker of versatility, owners will have “a discerning eye”, with design flair, and personal style, but with idealistically exacting standards.

Luck, or feeling bewilderingly unlucky, features significantly in some people’s lives. Luck is a way of understanding a personal chance event, but is there such a thing as luck? Do we orchestrate our own good and bad fortune?

As a hand reader, it would be highly unethical if I were to predict a “lucky” or “unlucky” outcome in a client’ life. I wouldn’t be in integrity if I were to foretell to people they are going to win or lose in a situation brought by chance rather than through their own actions.

But because it’s been proven that people who believe they are or will be lucky are more optimistic, more satisfied with their lives, and have better moods, when I see “lucky” signs in palms, I do like to point them out and to encourage the person that believing in luck can produce positive thinking, which changes things for the better. As a self-reinforcing viewpoint, belief in good luck is an adaptive meme.

“There are rules to luck, not everything is chance for the wise; luck can be helped by skill.”    Baltasar Graciá
