Discover the skills, tools and techniques you’ll need to become a successful hand reader. Learn your craft with one of the world’s leading palmists, Frank Clifford of The London School of Astrology.
In this unique, self-contained course, Frank will:
• Show how to read personality traits, aptitudes and needs from the hand
• Help you to detect important signs found in the palm
• Offer simple ways to construct clear and useful interpretations
• Teach you timing techniques
• Work with case studies from his client files, famous people and course students
Along the way, you’ll be introduced to many helpful tips and considerations gathered by Frank during his 25 years as a consulting palmist. Students will also be sent various articles written by Frank and other palmists. All are welcome and no prior knowledge of palmistry is necessary.
There are 10 one-hour, pre-recorded lessons and up to 8 hours of live Q&A with Frank. Each week, one pre-recorded (video and sound) class will be uploaded for you to access and, during the course, there will also be four live, 2-hour Q&A sessions with Frank to choose from – these have been set at different times to allow students from the USA, Europe and Australia to attend. These Q&A sessions will be recorded, too, if students are unable to attend live. (See the schedule below.)
During your time studying with us, Frank will be in touch regularly with you and you’ll be encouraged to submit questions (about the course content and your own hands) during the course dates. Most of these will be answered in the Q&A sessions.
All class links/recordings will remain open to students until the Diploma exam deadline on 31 March 2020.
Principles of Palmistry: Our Approach
A study of palmistry can offer clear insights into our innate character, our needs and desires as well as our attitudes to current circumstances. It can help us diagnose recurring problems in relationships, uncover the true expectations and needs of others and recognize the games we play and the unhelpful roles we can sometimes assume. It can reassure us about our talents, reveal our life challenges and herald opportunities. Rather than revealing a fixed pattern – an unalterable destiny – our hands impart substantial information about our temperament, personality and current motivations and drives. Our hands are living symbols of our life as it currently stands.

His two books, Palmistry 4 Today (Random House/Ride 2002, new edition: Flare 2009) and Palm Reading (Hamlyn 2004, new edition: Ilex 2019), have been translated into ten languages. He began running the London School of Astrology in 2004 and has since brought a new generation to astrology and palmistry. In 2012, Frank won a lifetime achievement honour (The Charles Harvey Award) for his contribution to astrology, and ISAR honoured him with a writing award in 2016. A Regulus Award nomination for Professional Image followed at UAC 2018.
Homework, Assignments and the LSA Diploma in Palmistry
There are ten assignments (all found in the Flare version of Palmistry 4 Today). These are optional, marked by Frank and the LSA, and included in the price of the course. Those of you who pass all ten assignments set by the LSA will receive a Diploma in Palmistry from The London School of Astrology.
At a couple of stages in the course, you will be given advice on how to complete these questions. We shall encourage you to start the assignments while participating in the course but you will have over three months after the final Q&A to finish the assignments. The official deadline to submit everything is 31 March 2020.
There will be some additional homework and reading set for you to complete in your own time – this will not be marked, but it will be an opportunity for you to study your own hands as you progress through the course.
The fees below include all tuition, marking of assignments (there will be a small, additional fee of £30 for any re-takes) and mailing of the final LSA Diplomas.
