If you have a short life line, it means that you will be able to overcome some physical problems that are bothering you.
Another meaning of a short life line is that you may be under control of other people who are trying to have an influence on your decisions and also on your whole life. The Chinese palmistry says that a short life line means that you will get ill easily, so you should be careful.

It is also possible that you will have to stay in a hospital for a while, either because of your poor health or because an accident that will happen to you.
The bigger an island on your life line is, the more serious health problems you will have.
If there is only a very small island on your life line, then there is no need to worry because you will have some problems with your health, but they will not be serious and you will be able to overcome them easily.
Life line with a cross. If there is a cross on your life line, it is a sign that something bad will happen to you unexpectedly. It could be an illness or any kind of a danger, so you need to be careful at any moment.
Lifeline with a star. A star that is located on your lifeline can also have negative symbolism. In palmistry, it is believed that a star on the lifeline means that you will be suffering from an illness.
Some serious health problems may be expecting you in the future, so you should take more care of yourself.
Life line with a lot of short lines. If you notice that there are a couple of short lines that are crossing your life line, it is also a bad omen. It means that you will have to face many difficult moments in the future.
It is possible that you will have problems with your health or that you will have a lot of worries and stress because of something. People who have many short lines on their life line should try to find more time for relaxation and joy.
Life line with tridents. If there are tridents on your life line, it means that you like travelling and you spend a lot of time on journeys.
