Face mole has not been looked kindly in the history of mankind, both in the medieval Europe and Eastern culture. Apparently the ugly shaped, colored and wrongly located mole has conjured up such connotation.
In the traditional Chinese culture, facial mole are respected and are used for the face reading or also known as moleomancy. According to the Chinese, the meaning of the mole varies according to where the mole is located, the so called the 9 “wealth spots” of the face. Depending on the location of the mole on the face, and also the color of the mole, a person’s facial mole may be considered good or evil, or “lucky” or “unlucky”.
When a mole is easily seen, it may be considered as a warning sign or a reminder of certain event. On the other hand, a hidden mole may symbolizes a good luck and good fortune. Traditionally, the Chinese culture consider that if you have a facial mole, there will always be a corresponding mole on another part of the body. Take for an example, if a person have a mole around the mouth, it is likely that a corresponding mole on the pubic area may be found. Sound funny! The beauty is in the beholder’s eye.
