Your Face Tells All, Part 8
Predictions for Unusual Spots...
Wisdom, fortune, manner, habits, luck, profession, marriage, family, love life, life, etc., for most Thai people are under the influence of their birth time, and are evidenced by palm lines, fingerprints, facial features, moles, birthmarks, etc. For these reasons, fortune tellers use some of these characteristics to predict the futures of their clients.
Various marks are classified by our ancient hermit into three different anatomical categories:
- Mole ("Fhai") - a small black bead on a person's skin.
- Birthmark ("Bpaan") - flat, discolored portions of skin, which may be thick or thin, red or black, which were present at birth. A birthmark can also sometimes be hairy.
- Freckles ("Khee Maeng Wan") - small spotted skin discolorations which may have been present at birth, but also might be caused by excessive exposure to the sun, or by aging. The fortune-tellers, however, do not pay attention to freckles in making their predictions.
Mole or Birthmark on the Right, Outer Upper Arm
Our Ancient Hermit would be proud of this man. He has a natural, quick intelligence which allows him to learn quickly and, likewise, he is naturally hard-working with an in-built streak of strong ambition. Career-wise, anything he undertakes will bring success and, should he decide to become self-employed, he will reap rich rewards. Such a man will command respect from his family, friends and neighbors. Also, he will be sought after as a husband but his first love will always be his work.
The lady who has this mark will learn about life's hardships at an early age. There will be much suffering, however, because of her characteristic exuberance, courage and love of life, she will climb to happier and greater things. She loves to have a laugh, enjoys new experiences and isn't afraid to take a risk or face new challenges. With the Cup of Life, this girl looks upon it as being half-full rather than half-empty. If she marries, she will not be dominated by any man but will remain a free-spirit.
Mole or birthmark on Left, Outer Upper Arm
Early life for this man will be something of a struggle due to financial circumstances but he is gifted with a clever brain and has a naturally pleasant and polite disposition. Job-wise, he is conscientious and always prepared to "go the extra mile" in assisting others. Confident of himself and unhesitating to accept new projects, he will be successful and much admired by colleagues. A true gentleman, he will make and ideal life-partner for someone.
Born into a quality situation, this lady will grow into one of life's campaigners seeking justice, human rights and fairness for all. Bestowed with a bubbly, lovely personality she makes friends easily but, nevertheless, has to work hard to achieve her aims of success and recognition especially in the "causes" she undertakes. However, despite initial problems of sponsorships, she will become the darling of several wealthy patrons. It is doubtful if this girl will marry although she will have meaningful relationships.
Mole or birthmark on Either Elbow
A man so marked will characteristically be of a serious, scholarly nature which will allow him to benefit from a quality education. Not an enthusiastic fun lover, he may find great success in the fields of accountancy or law. Alternatively, should he decide to enter Government, he will become a successful senior Civil Servant (not politician) or, perhaps, a career diplomat. The ideal wife for this man will be a lady of intelligence, discretion and charm who will be an able supporter at social functions he is obliged to attend or host.
This lady also benefits from a top education and uses it to springboard her to career success. By nature she is quick, intelligent and adopts a serious approach to anything she undertakes. Not readily discouraged by anything she sees in a man's world, she will fight, study and work hard to find her place in that world. As a "work-a-holic" she will run her own business efficiently and successfully or, perhaps, specialize in financial or business management. Marriage and children are not priorities for this lady.
Mole or Birthmark on Either Bicep Muscle
Such a man will become well liked and highly respectable. From an unpretentious background, he is astute, naturally intelligent and is also gifted with a keen sense of honesty and trust. As an enthusiastic but average sportsman, he gives and inspires fair-play. Such qualities will see him promoted to a senior position of trust - perhaps in banking or stock-control work - and will earn him the gratitude of his employers. This man will make a good, loving husband and father and will have no problem in finding his life-partner.
Such a girl is a delight as she presents many of the good, caring qualities of life. She comes from an ordinary background, with reasonable education, and will see her life's work as a vocation rather than a career. Self disciplined and systematic by nature, she is also happy to give of herself by volunteering to assist others - and this earns her the respect and love of her elders. Her work will be, perhaps, in the line of nursing, vetinary care or the welfare services. This lady will make a loving wife and will probably marry early in life.
