The Chinese can tell people’s fortunes by looking at their moles (location, color, shape). There are two types of moles: exposed and hidden. On the human face, the moles that are in plain sight are the exposed variety, while the ones ensconced by the eyebrows, beard or hair are of the hidden variety. Generally, hidden moles are considered auspicious, while the obvious moles are considered inauspicious.
The color of the moles should be bright red or dark black, and they should be round and raised to be considered auspicious. The red ones should be exposed, while the dark black ones should be hidden to maximize the person’s fortune. If the mole has a yellowish, brown, gray or mixed color, it can be considered inauspicious.
A mole with hair is a sign of riches and good education.
