Vedic astrology examines the connection between astrology and facial and body moles. The study of moles is called either moleosophy or moleomancy, and it has been part of many divinatory techniques since ancient times.
Vedic astrology, among other things, looks at the location of moles on a querent's body. Each body part is associated with a specific astrological symbol. Examination of moles' colors, shapes, location and other characteristics is one of many techniques for divining past, future and traits of the querent. These details are also believed to give valuable insight on past lives. Moleosophy has never attained the respect of other divinatory pseudosciences; it is generally classified as a superstition.
