Studying subjects which are closely related by correlating with each other is better than studying them in isolation. In my humble experience I feel Palmistry and Vedic Astrology must go hand in hand. If there is a moot point it means analysis is incomplete and you’re missing something crucial. I haven’t developed a system neither I am a pioneer but I do propose an experiment of sorts for all Vedic Astrology enthusiasts if they haven’t tried it already. In many cases, people who consult you might be physically present before you. There is an opportunity to examine their palms and other features with ease and it might lead you towards better deductions.
For example–if you get to know about Shadbala and judge relative strength of various planets in a horoscope-you will get to know which planets are strongest. This can be cross-verified in the hands of natives doing query immediately. It has been my experience that physiognomy must act in accordance with Vedic Astrology and vice versa. The mounts of various strong planets can be examined easily in a palm. Various lines on them along with signs like rectangles, stars, cross or conches should be taken into the account and then it should be examined if strongest planets are the ones which are getting good points in shadbala calculations too. If it’s not so then one should look at other things like nakshtra lord of the planets in question and keep verifying.
