Palmistry for All




Cheiro (November 1, 1866 - October 8, 1936), was one of the most famous and colorful occult figures of the early TwentiethCentury. Born in Dublin, Ireland as William John Warner, Cheiro also went by the name Count Louis Hamon (or Count Leigh de Hamong), claiming a noble ancestry that may or may not have been accurate. His name, Cheiro, derives from the wordcheiromancy, meaning palmistry. Cheiro was a clairvoyant who taught palmistry (or cheiromancy), astrology, and Chaldean numerology, and used these forms of divination to make predictions, both personal ones for clients, and more general ones about coming world events.As mentioned in his memoirs, Cheiro acquired his magnificent expertise in India. He went to India and landed at the Mumbai port when he was a teenager. There he met his Guru, an Indian Brahmin, who took him to his village situated in the valley of the Konkan region of Maharashtra. After studying thoroughly for two years there he came back to London and started his career as a palmist.Cheiro had a wide following of famous European and American clients during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He read the palms and told the fortunes of famous celebrities like Mark Twain, W. T. Stead, Sarah Bernhardt, Mata Hari, Oscar Wilde, Grover Cleveland, Thomas Edison, the Prince of Wales, General Kitchener, William Gladstone, and Joseph Chamberlain. He documented his sittings with these clients by asking them to sign a guest book he kept for the purpose, in which he encouraged them to comment on their experiences as subjects of his character analyses and predictions.PALMISTRY FOR ALLCHEIRO
