When a vehement denial fails to dispel the doubts that lurk in your heart, what do you do? Some readers have asked me to evaluate their suspicions through handwriting analysis. Though such an approach does not conclusively prove innocence or guilt, it can give you important clues.
Francine (Dec 24, 1971)
Following a series of accidental discoveries, husband Jason discovered that Francine was involved in an Internet relationship with a certain Web Romeo.
Francine had not erased her chat-room exchanges, and so John, a computer wiz, stumbled upon the truth.
When confronted, Francine broke down but insisted that the lovey-dovey correspondencewas mere cyber-flirtation with no physical or emotional context.
She said she had no intention of seeing through her cyber foreplay. And after all,John travels a great deal and when he is home, he spends his time on the golf course. So lonely Francine found solace in a chat-room. John wants to know if Francine is speaking the truth.
Madam Zorra says:
Francine’s handwriting shows her to be a romantic ( stylised capitals). She requires attention and likes to be appreciated and desired ( rounded a’s and o’s and full lower loops). If she feels neglected, she gets depressed and loses her confidence ( low t crossings).
She has a lot of love to give, and she wants to be loved back. Deprived, she may flirtaround but does not find it easy to be unfaithful. Her flirtations are cerebral in nature ( exaggerated capitals), like her chat-room teasing; she is not a “daring” person ( curls within her letters andlooped stem in her d’s). She would have to be in love to risk an affair.
John should realise her needs and not expect Francine to be content with an absentee husband. This is a wake-up call for a neglecting husband. Heed it, John.
The secret is out
Henry had a brief relationship with a colleague.
They used to travel together and had ample opportunity to get physical.
Recently his wife confronted him. She had found out about his trips abroad with his colleague. She even had love notes they had written.
Henry is furious as this because it is “not serious”, but is threatening to break up his 15-year marriage.
His wife has left the house with the children on a “trial separation” basis. He suspects his secretary leaked the secret. Is this indeed the case?
Madam Zorra says:
Miss Secretary (June 7, 1961) writes with various pronounced forward slants. A forward slant indicates a person with a great desire to communicate and/or gossip.
Handwriting with a high upper zone (1) reveals an ambitious and idealistic person.Lower zones that are loopless (2), and which end with a hook (3), indicate a person who is deprived, materially or in love. Because of this, she is unhappy.
The threadlike, thin writing of Miss Secretary (with “filled-up” e’s and a’s ) reveals a selfish nature. She is only concerned about herself.
This unhappy, judgmental person is capable ofsuch a nasty move. She may even be infatuatedwith the boss, or envious of the other woman’s position in the company.
Should Miss Secretary be single and have thin, tightly-pressed, pale lips, she might be a suffering soul who needs attention!
Grounds for doubt
Problem Child (Dec 5, 1991)
An anxious mother wants to know if her child is capable of lying and being manipulative.
The remarried mother wants to know if her son is making up stories about her new husband to cause trouble between them. She loves and trusts her husband, and she is troubled by her son’s stories.
Madam Zorra says:
It is a serious matter when a mother doubts her child, but perhaps she has grounds for it. From his birth date alone, I would say her son can be manipulative, and may even becapable of lying with a straight face.
Problem Child has taken to writing in red ink, says the mother. This indicates anger, and in this state, he is liable to lash out. The way he writes, his f’s (1) stands out. The letter rests on the line and does not flow into the lower zone.
This shows a lack or fear of physical pleasures. The way he writes his capital I (2) also reveals frustration.
I think Problem Child is an angry child. He is controlling his emotions, not wanting to show or receive affection, even though he yearns for it. He is by nature affectionate ( open and full o’s and a’s). Tormentedthus, he is capable of doing a great deal of damage.
Quick and firm steps need to be taken. Understanding him is very important. He is insecure because his familiar family life has been shattered. There is a new man inhis mother’s life. He is afraid, perhapshe feels unwanted. A great deal of reassuring and loving needs to be done.
He requires gentle coaxing, not harsh words.
A person may be guilty of a wrongdoing but sometimes he is only reacting like a terrified animal to the circumstances.
Get to the root of the problem and try to help. For all you know, you are the one who is guilty of putting him in that situation. W
