Fengshui Face Reading

By S.BS. Surendran

The Chinese school of Feng Shui at a very advanced level takes into account the personal Feng Shui of the individual to assess the situation, luck, happenings and possibilities of events in a person’s life. In other words traditional Chinese face reading gives insight into character, personality, health, wealth and social standing.

Face reading or Physiognomy ( Chinese metaphysics)  is known as MIEN SHIANG or MIEAN XIANG ( pronounced as MYEN-SHUNG) and originated in China almost 3,000 years ago in the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 BC).  It was found that each facial feature related to an organ network in the body hence the features, shape, size, color, placement revealed a lot of information on certain aspects of life, health character traits etc.

Face reading takes into account the fact that faces change and that the face can also reveal if a person is in a period of Good Luck or Bad Luck. As we age, the facial lines, expressions, scars keep changing. In Chinese face reading it is said that different parts of the face correspond to the different ages of individual or different aspects of one’s life. When those particular areas are afflicted by scars, pimples, acne or blemishes, it could affect your luck outcome in many different ways. The prominent differences between the left and the right side of the face were also observed. The Left side represents the inner self of the person and the right side of the face is the self you show the world and together it would give an insight into the holistic mind and body picture.

The Chinese divination uses left portion of the face for male and right for the female. Hence, in face reading a man’s face is read from the left side first and a woman’s face is read from the right side first. Further the face is divided into the three physiognomic zones traditionally demarcated by Chinese face-readers. They are the upper zone (from forehead to eyebrows), middle zone (eyebrows to tip of nose) and lower zone (tip of nose to tip of chin). It is said that these zones represent three descending levels of Chinese cosmology: – Heaven, man and earth

To get a very basic insight into this highly complex and advanced school of Physiognomy one could try to interpret the chart demarcating the areas in the face of a person.
• If there are Blemishes on the corners of the forehead known as the Travelling Palace, it indicates frustrations or problems related to travelling.
• Blemish or Acne on the Life Palace (the space between your eyebrows) indicates that the person will be in a bad mood and prone to bouts arguments and fights.
• Spots or Pimples in the area between the eyebrows and the eye, signifies the Property Palace, and suggests the possibility of domestic problems or a troubled home atmosphere.
• Blemishes on the nose bridge (also known as the Mountain Roots) suggest the possibility of arguments with your spouse.
• The appearance of spots on the nose tip, or on the nose wings, indicates the future loss of money through excessive spending or through bad investments, fines to law enforcement like over etc.
• Blemishes at the corners of the mouth suggest that you’re likely to be argumentative and get into disagreements and quarrels with almost everyone.
• Pimples at the lower side of the cheeks known as Hired Help Palace indicate that you’re likely to have problems with your staff, or your hired help (i.e. maids) at home.
