What Are Beauty Marks?
Most people will know what a beauty mark looks like, however not so many will know what it actually is. It’s a pigmented patch on the skin caused by melanin growing in clusters.
This much is agreed on, however after this it gets a little confusing, on a scientific level beauty marks, birth marks and moles are the same thing.
Some top dermatologists believe this too, although other top dermatologists don’t. Only 1% of babies are born with beauty spots, which are thought by some people to be caused by genetic make up.
Everyone else is thought to acquire them throughout childhood or through sun exposure.
Beauty Marks in Spiritually?
For centuries beauty marks have had a spiritual meaning (learn the spiritual meaning of strawberry birthmarks), from the ancient Greeks to imperial China, right through to the 15th century witch trials and indeed to the present day. Beauty spots have remained in the spotlight when it comes to spirituality.
Whether they were believed to be a positive thing, a negative thing or just something which people get to keep up with the current trend, beauty spots have always had a place in society.
Beauty Marks in Ancient Greece
As far back as ancient Greece beauty spots have been used to predict someone’s future. If you had a beauty mark (referred to as olives) on your face you were considered lucky and thought to have been heading for a successful life.
However if the pigmented patch was found to be on your throat or on your back then you were doomed. It predicted a premature death.
Beauty marks were also thought of in the same light during the roman and Egyptian eras.
Beauty Marks During The 15th and 16th Century Witch Trials
Back during the gruesome witch trials, anyone with a beauty mark would try to keep it hidden. People back then believed that not just beauty spots, but any scar or mark on your body, was the mark of a witch and that you were possessed by the devil.
There were actually teams of men that would go around and ransack your house if they believed you were involved in witchcraft.
In today’s world we can make home remedies and cures, but back then if you were known to be doing this, they would suspect you were a witch.
If you were found with a beauty mark they would either burn you, hang you, drown you or torture you until you died. Many people were reported to have actually burned their beauty spots to try and remove them.
Beauty Marks In Imperial China
Thousands of years ago a practice started called mian xiang it means face reading and was used as a form of divination. Similar to today’s facial recognition, this practice would study the persons facial structure and features, then the beauty mark would be the main point of determining their personality and how their life would unfold.
Much of their destiny was based solely on the colour of the beauty mark, everything would be great if your beauty mark was found to be red or black. However if it was brown then this was seen as trouble, a struggle and a serious warning sign.
Beauty Marks In Religion
Some people believe that beauty spots are a gift from God. A true sign of love and protection, with a strong spiritual significance for guidance and revelations.
It’s similar to when you are born with or develop an upside down heart, it’s said to be the house of David from the bible.
Beauty Marks From a Past Life
This seems to be a widespread belief as to why people actually have beauty spots.
Many people believe that beauty spots are from past lives. It’s said that we have been reincarnated, and the beauty spots are actually marks from battles we had or the reason we passed away in our previous life.
So if we have a beauty spot on our back, it could mean we were stabbed in a previous life. If we have multiple beauty spots then perhaps these are representing more than one of our past lives.
Beauty Marks In Astrology
We all know about astrology and our birth signs, however did you know that there is a specific astrology that reveals a persons character and destiny through the placement of their beauty spots?
As with everything polarity has a part to play in the translation of the location of the beauty marks. It is believed that during early development of the foetus, depending on the planetary positions it will affect where the beauty spot will be.
So depending on the time it will determine if the planet is masculine or feminine, and from there the beauty spot will be on the corresponding side of the body.
It is believed the placement of the beauty spot can tell you if the person will be successful or not, if they will have a healthy life, and even if they will have a happy marital life with many wonderful children.
Beauty Marks In Fashion
In today’s world beauty spots are seen as just that, something that makes a person physically look more beautiful.
Many top celebrities adorn such beauty spots, this isn’t a new trend either, looking back the iconic Marilyn Monroe had a natural beauty spot she flaunted proudly back in the 1950’s, at that time beauty spots became a must have for everyone who was anyone in show business.
However as mentioned before beauty spots have always had a place in society. After the witch trials had passed, people started showing their beauty spots off again.
In the 18th century people would get artificial beauty marks made from velvet or moleskin, and stick them to their face. These beauty spots were actually dual purpose, as they were covering scars left by the smallpox.
It’s thought the placement of the beauty spot would be a signal of the persons mood, and if it was worn on the cheek it was perceived as a sign of flirtation.
During the 1980’s and early 90’s we saw another stream of celebrities boasting the beauty mark, such as Madonna and Cindy Crawford. Of course this lead to many youngsters imitating the beauty spot, by making their own beauty spot using eye liner or mascara.
Beauty Marks In Today’s World
In today’s world thankfully people are more educated, witchcraft is being accepted and it’s actually becoming somewhat of a trend.
Many of these modern day witches are looking for any confirmation that they are from a magical bloodline, therefore they are searching their bodies for every little beauty mark they have, and sharing it with the world to try and get some recognition.
Now a witches mark isn’t always a beauty spot, it could be an extra finger or toe or even a third nipple. The third nipple was said to be how witches used to feed their familiar (their pet) that did their bidding for them.
You don’t need to be a direct bloodline descendant, or have a beauty spot to be a witch, the practice can be learned.
Also in today’s world beauty spots are seen as just that, something that makes a person physically look more beautiful.
The reason for this is that we have 2 initial incarnations, one would be masculine and the other feminine, born as the same person and therefore having the same beauty spot.

Are beauty marks lucky ?

If your beauty spot near your backbone, it’s believed you’ll reach fame and fortune, however if the beauty spot is below your shoulder blade, then you’re destined for continuous struggles in life and bad luck unfortunately.
Love them or hate them, beauty spots really give us food for thought. There are still a couple of groups of people I haven’t mentioned in this article yet, so lets take a look and see what some other people believe.
We have the people who say ‘Beauty spots are just a mark or just a mole, but we call them beauty spots to make the children happy’ My reply to these people would be, it doesn’t matter what we call them, they still have a spiritual purpose.
Many people today have said they wouldn’t have their beauty spots removed as it might have a negative impact on their life.
There are also people who believe that if more than one member of the family have the beauty spot in the same place, then they are definitely from a pure spiritual bloodline.
Recently I read a statement about beauty spots, it actually made me stop and think, the gentleman wrote ‘ I think it shows how spiritually bankrupt we are, if we need to start looking at ourselves for signs’
It sort of made my heart sink, but it did ring true. I guess if we have a pure spiritual bloodline and we’re told about our ancestors ‘gifts’ then we don’t have any need to look for signs. At the same time however, it’s always nice to have the physical confirmation.
