It describes in detail the meaning of the exact positioning of a mole on the face.

The 23 Positions Of Chinese Moles Meaning
The following positions of moles on your face indicate meaning within the Tung Shu, but it is only relevant if the mole itself is prominent and solitary.
That means that if you have many small moles on your face, it is probably only the most noticeable one that holds meaning if any of them do at all.
1. Upper Forehead (Center)
During childhood, you were filled with a rebellious spirit and a yearning for freedom.
You didn’t care much for rules and often found that being given free reign allowed you to excel, which has followed you into adult life.
Unfortunately, this usually means that you will have complicated relationships with your parents, as well as other authority figures throughout your life.
2. Between The Brow
You are prone to bluntness and brashness, preferring to act on impulse rather than thinking things through.
Arguments are normal behavior for you, and your aggressive nature can make others uncomfortable.
3. Above The Eyebrow
There is the potential for great wealth in your life, but you will have to work harder than most to attain it.
Be wary of trusting others, especially with your finances. You worry a lot about your friends and family, but mixing money into the equation will lead to harm and heartbreak.
4. On The Eyebrow
Moles on the eyebrow indicate the bearer has high creative potential and the opportunity for fame and success as an artist or in a creative field.
5. Under The Eyebrow
You will experience a lot of trouble within your family and how you deal with that will affect your entire life.
Ensure that you put extra effort into your family relationships.
6. Bridge Of Nose
You have an optimistic spirit and positive attitude towards the challenges of life.
However, you should pay special attention to your financial wellbeing as you are likely to be weak in this area.
7. Tip Of Nose
A universally good omen, a mole on the tip of your nose indicates wealth, good luck, and success in your life.
8. Under Nose or Above Lip
Having an under nose or lip marking shows a strong family bond and a large family in your future.
These bonds will be a foundation for the rest of your life, leading to emotional and spiritual fulfillment.

Indicates someone who will achieve balance and success.
In the workplace, you will be very successful in gaining promotions and opportunities, which could lead to wealth and fame.
