It’s surprising to learn that there is more to moles than meets the eye. To some, a mole may seem as just a little black patch that is almost ignored most of the time but for others, moles can be considered as a nuisance, either because they are really visible on the face or sometimes rub uncomfortably against clothing that they eventually opt to remove it by going to dermatologists.

Ancient Beliefs

Well, if you knew what your facial mole means, would you still decide to remove it? People of Ancient China believe that moles may be lucky or unlucky, depending on where it is located, what it’s size, and color. Facial moles are said to have particular meaning if they are really noticeable or if there is only one of them. Having many moles on the face, however, are said to have less meaning because their visibility is not unique.

Facial Mapping and Mole Meanings

Mole meaning has been derived from the Tong Shu, a Chinese almanac that categorizes the meaning of facial moles depending on its locations. According to it, the face is “mapped” into numbered sections, with each number representing a mole. They determine a particular mole’s meaning by simply matching its location on the face to its corresponding location on the facial map.
