Chirologist, writer, intuitive counsellor, hand reading teacher and mosaic artist Jennifer Hirsch has pioneered chirology in South Africa since 1991. She lives in south coast, KZN, South Africa, where she reads people’s hands (in person or online) and teaches chirology.

Jen says: “My work has always been about counselling and healing. I began working as massage therapist in 1979 and began incorporating hand reading into my therapy practice in 1991 when I began to study palmistry and chirology. I founded the South African Chirology Centre for the Study of Hand Reading in 1994.”

Jennifer has a YouTube channel that is dedicated to helping people to read hands. She has authored five books about chirology, palmistry and hand reading:

“Illustrated Chirology Palmistry Hand Reading”
An essential guide for hand readers, Illustrated Chirology is an encyclopedic presentation of hundreds of tutorials, illustrations, photographs and hand print samples.

“God Given Glyphs – Fingerprints”
In this book, Jen presents over 200 stunning close-up images of the cosmic patterns that cover our palmar surfaces, accompanied by meanings for when the dermatoglyphic patterns are on thumbs, index, middle, ring and baby fingers and the palms.

“The Craft of Palmistry: Five Element Chirology and Cross Referencing Hands – Traits A – Z”
A beautifully illustrated handy reference to the basics of the 5 element system.

“Training Manual – How to Read Hands”
A comprehensive and fully illustrated reference resource for readers which Jen developed over many years of teaching chirology to hundreds of students both in and out of South Africa.

“Palmistry – Signs & Symbols on the Mounts”
What might a cross, pentagram, square, star, triangle or other symbol signify? Old palmistry tradition holds that each symbol reveals either gain or loss, luck or trouble, peace or conflict, honesty or deceit, along with many other possibilities. By getting our brains out the way and instead allowing our intuitive soul self to guide us, we tap into the mystical skills of the chiromancers of the past. 

Jennifer is blessed with 3 beloved grown-up children and a precious granddaughter.
