Hi. I’m Helene Saucedo, and I am a graphic designer/art director turned palm reader. Never in my life could I have foretold this would be my calling. The story of how I became a working palm reader with a published book on the topic is one of transformation, serendipity, and plain magic. Like a lot of my clients, I was in a stuck place. I was stuck in an unhappy marriage, stuck at home as a stay-at-home mother with big dreams and a design career stuck on hold while I was recovering from postpartum depression and a traumatic childbirth. Something shifted during the total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. I had to find my way out of the dark hole where I was hiding from my own life. With absolutely no back up plan, I asked my husband for a divorce and simultaneously came out as queer. I cashed out my 401K to purchase a beautifully renovated vintage camper off of eBay for some sense of stability. I followed my intuition and discovered my gift in palm reading, and incorporated my design skills to make the art accessible by designing the handprint sheet included in my kit. My book, Handful of Stars: A Palmistry Guidebook and Hand-printing Kit from HarperCollins, is much more than just a book--it is the trophy I received from the Universe for facing the challenging journey of stepping into my most authentic self.
