Have you ever heard the expression- “it’s written all over your face?” Well, there may in fact be some truth to that.
Face Reading has been around for ages and has been used to make predictions about one’s past, present and future.
Just like palm reading, face reading takes into account subtle lines, contours and the overall appearance in order to determine the person’s fate, health and personality.
Face Readings have even been used by corporate companies to help determine whether an employee would be a good fit for a company.
There are many different types and styles of Face Reading, but this guide will help you to learn the basics.
The Anatomy of the Face
- The left side of the face represents the person’s character and temperament
- The right side of the face represents the person’s emotions and relationships
- The upper part of the face (forehead) represents childhood, the past and the relationship with parents
- The mid part of the face including the eyes, nose and cheeks represents the present and the middle years of life
- The lower part of the face including the chin represents the future and later years of life, it also represents the person’s private life
The Shape of the Face
There are three main face shapes used in Face Reading. If you fit into multiple categories, you can blend the interpretation of both.
Face Type #1: Oval Face
Those with an oval face are intellectual but also dreamers. They may change ideas or goals frequently. They are often shy and self conscious. Can be manipulative or have a hard time feeling grounded. Often get into professions in music and writing.
Face Type #2: Square Face
Those with a square or athletic face are often strong willed and very determined. They can be quick to anger and feel easily frustrated when things don’t go their way. Indicates a lot of self confidence and a practical nature. Most often seen in political leaders or people in a position of power.
Face Type #3: Round/Heart Face
Those with a round face are adaptable, methodical and practical. They usually have a sophistication about them and love spending time with others. Are often interested in many topics and areas and have a fun loving personality. They can be aggressive or even untrustworthy. They love working with people.
