Cheiro the Wonderful: Talk to the Hand

a lecture by Kim Farnell

Cheiro was gorgeous – a world famous and charismatic practitioner of  palmistry who the mass media of his time portrayed as equal parts sex symbol,  clairvoyant, and occultist. His life story only makes sense when you bear that fact in mind. Although he’s heralded as the greatest seer of the twentieth century, his story has long been obscured by fantasy, misdirection and confusion. But the actual truth is as interesting as anything he ever invented about himself – for example, he really did know a princess who married a lion tamer. He also practised astrology in tandem with palmistry. We’ll look at aspects of Cheiro’s life as well as the techniques he used when performing readings and, of course, his A data horoscope! KIm Farnell’s ‘wonderful’ new book on Cheiro is currently available on Amazon.
