The philtrum is divided into 3 parts:

  • First part: close to the nose, signifying the time of childhood.
  • Second part: middle of the philtrum, representing the time of adulthood.

Women with wide philtrum are said to enjoy a flourishing career or a highly paid job. However, if the philtrum is too wide, this indicates a lack of patience, ill fortune, and low intelligence.

Short Philtrum

In contrast to long philtrum, short philtrum does not promise a person good health and longevity. Rather, it means bad luck for children and health, which can eventually lead to loneliness in old age.

A short philtrum is a sign that someone needs to change his diet and mental attitude. The lifespan of people with this type of philtrum is generally short. They are inactive, lazy, and hot-tempered. These people don’t have the drive to finish what they had started.

People with short philtrum tend to seek helps from others because they are very dependent. They make no effort to improve themselves, so they usually don’t achieve much in life. These people also don’t like to be teased and can become very irritable if someone does so.

Shallow philtrum means that the line and depth of the philtrum are not very clear. The art of reading faces tells us that shallow philtrum is a good sign for money matters, but a bad sign for creativity and children.

That is, people with this kind of philtrum tend to be very aware of how they spend their money. Discounted prices and free trials mean greatness to them as they love the thrill of hunting for bargains. These people value security so much that they put most of their time and energy into building a good financial foundation.

Therefore, people with short philtrum tend to enjoy financial security in old age. Yet, they are not quite interested in sex. Their reproductive systems are considered weak and they don’t attract luck in marriage and children.

3. Lines on Philtrum

Horizontal Lines

If there is a horizontal line running across the philtrum, this is a sign of a blockage of fertility and creativity. This person is likely to run out of Jing due to his shallow breathing and overworking.

Therefore, a marking here suggests that a person should learn to breathe properly in a basic sense. On a spiritual level, the horizontal line on the philtrum means to expand your consciousness.

Moreover, the horizontal line across the philtrum is a message to free yourself from social restraints and conventions. People with these lines have a tendency of not being true themselves, so they need to open themselves up to their true nature.

Vertical Lines

In Chinese face reading, vertical lines on the philtrum indicate bad luck in childhood, creativity, and children. These lines signify the issues with physical energy and sexual power.

People with many vertical lines on the philtrum usually do not marry. Even if they do, it is very hard for them during the conception period. They may be adopted children themselves or will adopt others as their children, but as a rule, they will not find much satisfaction in this area of life.

4. Moles on Philtrum

Due to the philtrum’s location, you should check the meaning of moles on lips for complete understanding.

If this mole appears on the face of a woman, she is likely to have problems with the uterus. If the black mole is on a man’s face, he has a tendency to be lecherous and backbite other people.
