Face Reading Cheekbones

Cheekbones in Physiognomy

Cheekbone is a slightly raised bone that located underneath the eye socket and found in the middle of face. The position and plumpness of cheekbone affect one's fortune. Neither the overly raised, sunken, high or low, big or small cheekbone conforms to the standard in face reading. The high rather than low, plump rather than skinny cheek bone is preferred.

Position of Cheekbones

Taking the center of the nose as the center line, the cheekbones underneath the outer corner of the eyes and above the center line are regarded high and belong to those in power; the cheekbones close to the apex of the nose and underneath the center line are regarded low and belong to those who have rebellious subordinates.

In cheekbone reading, the nose should also be taken into consideration and directly proportional to the cheekbone. Physiognomy believes that the nose is a symbol of self and status while the cheekbone presents people around and power. High nose and cheekbones symbolize the high status and great power. High cheekbones yet low nose indicate the power with no status, ostensible obedience and rebellious subordinates acting beyond the authority. High nose yet low cheekbones present high position with no direct power.

High Cheekbones
People with high cheekbones too close to the eyes are proud and arrogant and they often invite many troubles and make others loathe. Eyes reflect one's inner likes and dislikes, and emotional changes. If the cheekbones are too close to the eyes, various harms will be caused. Although the cheekbones only affect one's luck in age 46 and 47, the influence on the eyes will last from age 35 to 43.

Low Cheekbones
Men with low cheekbones are henpecked and tend to have the power in middle age fallen into the hands of others, so they have to follow obediently both at home or outside.

Uneven Cheekbones: One High and One Low
Uneven cheekbones suggest the poor career, unstable power and luck in middle age and many changes in life. People with one high and one low cheekbone have to suffer a lot to get limited reward, and face crisis in marriage.

Low left cheekbone indicates the loss of power while the low right suggests the difficulty in keeping the position. High left cheekbone symbolizes the broad scope of jurisdiction while the high right indicates the real yet short-term power in hand. Generally speaking, the lower cheekbone suggests the certain imperfect thing.

Prominent, Overly Protruding, and Flat and Sunken Cheekbones

Prominent Cheekbones
The balanced and prominent cheekbones are an indication of leadership and belong to those who are neither humble nor pushy, bold, talented, noble and unsullied, have the sense of balance and can be entrusted with important tasks. They are ready to help and take care of others. Also, they are resolute, confident, imposing, ambitious and progressive; with the help from others, they can get both fame and power, and make great achievements.
Overly Protruding Cheekbones
This kind of cheekbones look domineering and belong to those who are unyielding, opinionated, and dissatisfied with the status quo; self-conceit and bravado are their marks.

Throughout the life, they are busy about tactics and bring pressure to others. Since they are picking and skilled in tactics but seldom act, they generally lead a poor life.

Flat and Sunken Cheekbones
Sunken cheekbones lead to the impression of cowardice, incompetence and lack of vitality and belong to those who are inflexible yet insightful. They tend to be self-abased, weak-minded and in lack of fighting spirit and perseverance. People with sunken cheekbones are agreeable to everything, often depend on others, and dislike the complicated and changeable work and competition; they are capricious, indifferent, and low in desire and courage due to the limited sense of responsibility and leadership. As a result, they are seldom in power, go with the stream throughout the life, work hard to make a living yet make limited accomplishment in career. Despite the slow action and limited courage and ability, they are the master-hands behind the curtain and adept at scheming.
