Chinese Face Reading Philosophy – the Nose

Our Face – the Life ‘Palaces’

Our faces are also divided into different parts called the ‘Twelve Palaces’; each palace signifies different aspects of our lives.

The radix is the ‘Life Palace’, signifying our luck and fame.
The rhinion is the ‘Sickness Palace’, which governs our health.
The nasal tip is the ‘Wealth Palace’, which governs our financial luck.

Face reading implications of the nose

A person with a high nasal dorsum from the radix (Life Palace) all the way down to the tip is considered more likely to get famous. This is illustrated in the old Chinese saying, ‘Have a high nose and you will make your parents proud’.

A strong and ‘fleshy’ nasal tip means a person will become rich, as the nasal tip is our ‘Wealth Palace’. This is especially true when that person also has minimal nostril show as the extent of the nostril show governs our money saving power.

Nose negative nasal attribute

A person with too much nostril show is regarded as easily spending or losing the money he earns. Other negative nasal feature includes a hump over the nasal dorsum, which signifies a poorer health and relationship with other people.

To put this philosophy into its proper perspective, we have to bear in mind that our faces should never be read part by part separately. Balance is a very important principle in all Chinese philosophies. A person with a good, high nose will only be successful if he or she also has other good facial features. Our, forehead, nose, right and left malar prominences, and chin are called ‘The Five Mountains’ on our faces. Their height and shape must be balanced for one to be qualified to have a ‘good face’.

This latter idea is perhaps much more easily comprehended nowadays by facial plastic surgeons when we discuss about the art of facial surgery, and achieving the balance and harmony of the beautiful face.
