Physiognomy is a Greek word which is made of two words Physis meaning nature and gnomon means judging or interpretation. Thus, physiognomy means interpretation of nature by appearance and physical structure of a person. In the modern ages it is termed as a pseudoscience but recent scientific evidences and some psychological researches proves the validity and reliability of this branch of Indian astrology. Some authors are skeptical about its origin. Some says it was originated in Greece while some authors opined this system with its origin in Middle East. Others found some evidences claiming its origin in Mesopotamia but truthfully speaking, this system of future telling originated in India and spread to Iran, Rome, France and other countries of west. Confucius did a lot for the promotion of Physiognomy. In the course of time, we developed multiple varieties and systems of Physiognomy. Here one thing is noteworthy that the particular race of a person must be kept in the mind during making any interpretation about a person’s personality according to physiognomic principles. This is because the persona of a person bears cultural heritage where he nurtured that follows the physiognomic principles of a particular region setting aside some universal findings.Healthprose pharmacy

Physiognomy is known by many names like personology, anthroposcopy…etc. In China it is known as Siang Main. In India it is called Samudrik Shastra. In India, the tradition of tantra classifies an individual into many forms. The Vamachari Sadhkas (left hand of tantric practices) believes in the divinity of corporal body. According to them the sharira (body) is a temple of god and the well constituted temple hold the well organized faculty of God. They tell us a trilogy of their outlook about entire world and cosmos as Satyam, Shivam, Sudaram (What that is truth is pleasant and what that is pleasant is beautiful). As the Sheldon classified humans into Endomorph, Mesomarph and Ectomarph, the Indians classifies a person according to their Triguna – Satva, Raja and Tama and tridosha Vata, Pitta and Kapha. In modern Physiognomt too, the face of a person is devided among three parts.

According to modern Physiognomy, the face of a person is divided into three parts as follows –

(1)   Part 1 – From upper part of the neck (part of the face where neck joins with chin) to the base of the nostrils. It is called as chemical part of the face.

(2)   Part 2 – From the base of nostrils till the endings of forehead (where the scalp originates and hair appears).

(3)   Part 3 – Entire skull of the person.

Modern Physiognomy uses the principles of anatomy and Darwinian Theory of species origin in support of their claims and findings. It is also related with ancient Indian Physiognomic principles but somewhere there is a clash between two systems of Character reading. We will discuss both systems to our readers. Modern Physiognomy further divides the face of an individual into five parts for precise and accurate face reading in the following manner and call it practical sub division of a human face –

(1)   Part 1 - From upper part of the neck (part of the face where neck joins with chin) to the base of the nostrils. It is called as chemical part of the face. It signifies domestic, moral and social characteristics of an individual’s personality.

(2)   Part 2 - Nostrils – it represents artistic and literary abilities of a person.

(3)   Part 3 – From the base of the nose till the base of the nostrils – it represents the Executive faculty of the person.

(4)   Part 4 – Entire forehead – it represents mechanical and practical aspects of an individual’s personality.

(5)   Part 5 – Entire skull – it represents mathematical and reasoning abilities of a person.          In purest sense, Physiognomy involves entire body of an individual but modern Physiognomists give more weight age to face reading than examining other body parts of an individual. This is because face is more apparent and visible to the reader than other body parts and in some culture even the faces were covered for other persons. In this case the principle of form and movement could reveal something about the personality of an individual. Below we will discuss some other markers of personality present in an individual –

(1)   Color – Color is mainly derived from sunlight and minerals. Plants, animals, man all are influenced by color. Color gives health, vigor, tone and beauty to the human organism and all natural objects. We all know that each color has some particular meaning and it is coming from generations. For example, green indicates life and health in all cultures. Likewise, yellow indicates ripeness or decay. A plant that is sick seems us pale and we infer by its pale color that the plant is going to decay. This is true for humans too. A human being with a pallid, colorless skin may be suffering from some serious disorder, if this color is permanent like Chinese or Mongolian folks; they lack vital energies than that of Caucasian or Aryan counterparts.

(2) Structure - The entire physiognomical structure of a person tells a lot about the personality and future prospects of a person. some relate it with a particular animal type. they say that if the face of an individual relate with any animal, he may bear some qualities of that animal in his personality. for example, if the face of an individual resemble with lion, he is said to be brave, ferocious, above board, kind and
