Your Face Tells All, Part 9
Prediction from 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 discoloration which may have been present at birth, but also might be caused by excessive exposure to the sun, or by aging. The fortunetellers, however, do not pay attention to freckles in making their predictions.
Mole or Birthmark close to Navel
Our Ancient Hermit would suggest this man is an enigma. Possibly a successful businessman but yet not displaying any of the qualities which would make him so. Moody, impatient, uncaring of his, or anyone else's, reputation. Certainly polygamous as intimate affairs are regarded as trophies rather than anything of the heart. A fun-seeker who surrounds himself with "friends" but, when he needs moral support, he finds his "friends" have disappeared. This man is not to be envied.
In today's world, such a girl would be thought of as a "bimbo" with her head full of candy or sugar-floss. She does not take life seriously as she cannot take herself seriously; a "good time girl" whose attractiveness is determined by the latest fashion craze. A constant string of lovers, none of whom mean anything, will occupy her attention in early life but these will fade in company with her looks. In later life, a faded rose, uncared for and unloved.
Mole or Birthmark just below the Navel
So marked, this man will display many of the better life-qualities. Intelligent and very aware of social responsibilities, he will constantly help those in need whether they be relatives or welfare organizations. A genuinely nice and kind man, he must guard against being considered a "soft touch" by those who wish to ingratiate themselves - especially by some insincere ladies who wish to come into his life.
This girl will be born into a life of plenty and will reflect all of the better traits of such an upbringing. Intelligent, popular with relatives and friends, hardworking and very attractive, she will not lack for admirers or suitors. However, they will all be rejected in favor of her childhood sweetheart with whom she will marry. A very good marriage will bring forth children to complete her happiness.
Mole or Birthmark at Right Waist
This man is a giver rather than a taker which is fortunate as he will rarely be directly rewarded by those he helps. By nature he is clever, sensitive and alert to life's opportunities. Inherent honesty, loyalty and patience will project him into both a successful business and acceptable marriage. If the union produces children, they will bring stability, joy and happiness to the marriage.
A lady who posseses great charm and a lively intelligence which leads to strong opinions. Whilst not arrogant, she finds difficulty in accepting the views of others so is regarded as being firm willed. Not frivolous with her heart, she will marry a man who loves her dearly and will be happy to compromise in domestic life. Middle-age will see her business firmly established and this will provide a financially stable future.
Mole or Birthmark at Left Waist
This male will be a pillar of the community; with a strong leaning towards religious beliefs he will also reflect justice and fairness for all. Broad-minded to the failings of others, he will do his best to encourage goodness and will mix readily with people of all classes and backgrounds. Humble, self-disciplined and hardworking, he will always perceive the needs of others as greater than his own. Married or not, he will cherish and care for his family community.
Such a girl is of the "I want it now" variety and is totally devoid of personal or social responsibility. Opportunities of education and proper employment are ignored which ultimately leads to a life of superficial values. Also, a lack of confidence in her natural beauty will see lavish spending to bolster her attractiveness. Taken advantage of by a series of lovers, she will marry one who will unfortunately pass away. Gullible and without decent reputation she will become part of life's flotsam in later years.
