I. Maharishi Parasara said. O Maitreya! Now I will describe to you the effects of moles,
marks, spots and signs, found on the body of women and men.

2-3. A mole, spot, or figure, formed by hair on the left side of a woman and right side of a
man is auspicious. If there is mole on the chest of a woman, she will be fortunate. A woman,
who has a red mark, like a mole etc., on her right breast, begets many children and she is
blessed with all kinds of enjoyments and comforts.

4. The woman, who has a red mark (mole) on her left breast, begets only one son.

5. The woman, who has a mole on her right breast, begets many daughters and sons.

6. There will be gain, or acquisition of a kingdom, if there, as is a red mole etc. on the
forehead, or in the middle of (between) the eyebrows. The person will enjoy sweetish
preparations, if there is such a mark on the cheeks.

7-10. The woman, who has a red mark (mole etc.) on her nose, becomes consort of a king. If
the mark be blackish, the woman concerned becomes an adulteress, or widow. All the marks
below the navel are auspicious for both men and women. If there be moles etc. on the ears,
cheeks, or neck of a man, his first issue will be male and he will enjoy good fortune and
happiness. The man, who has moles etc. in the thighs, suffers misery.

II. The woman, who has the sign of trident on her forehead, becomes a queen. Such a mark
on the forehead of a man makes him a king.

12. A right-turned circular hair formation on heart, navel, hands, right part of the back and in
the portion between sex organ and navel is auspicious. Left-turned formation is inauspicious.

13-14. Such a hair formation on the waist and private parts proves inauspicious. If such a
formation be on the stomach, the woman concerned will become a widow. If it be in the
center of the back she will become an adulteress. It will be inauspicious, if it be on the neck,
forehead, or center of the head.

15. A man with indications of short life will get his longevity prolonged by marrying a
woman with auspicious, or lucky marks/symbols.
