What is a mole? According to NHS Choices, “Moles are small colored spots on the skin made up of cells called melanocytes, which produce the color (pigment) in your skin”. Moles exist at various locations on the body in different colors, texture and shapes. In addition, moles may be raised or flat, hairy or not hairy. Normally, moles appear on the body of an individual as birthmarks or develop later after birth. A mole that exists at birth is considered to be a birthmark while one that develops later is not.
In Chinese and Indian – and sometimes Islamic – mole astrology, it is believed that the development of moles is determined by ecclesial bodies – planets in particular. Furthermore, the planets influence the shape, size, location, color and nature of a mole. In turn, these characteristics are then used to determine the destiny of the person on whose body they develop. They may also be used to interpret the symbolism they represent regarding the person.
The meaning of a mole refers to the destiny that awaits the person having it. Also, it may denote some symbolism. In this case, it may symbolize personality traits like honesty, integrity, shyness or selfishness. Typically, the moles that may have certain meanings are those found on the body as birthmarks when a child is born. All the same, those that develop later may also have certain meanings.
It is not easy to tell the significance of a mole on the body of an individual. However, the secret of a mole can be unraveled by mole reading.
