What It Really Means When You Have A Mole On Your Wrist

If you've already mapped your star chart and read your horoscopes for the day, it might be time to examine your moles. Yes, really. According to the Times of India, each mole placement on your body means something different about you. Just like the placement of the stars on the day you were born, your moles can help you get a better understanding of who you are. Or, in the case of moles on your wrists, what you've been through. Who knew one little dot could mean so much?


It's worth noting that before you read your life story in your moles, you should definitely give them a closer look just for the sake of safety as well. If your moles are itchy, changing colors, or sore, please go see your doctor before you dive into their meanings (via the Cleveland Clinic). If all of your moles look and feel normal, then skip to the readings. Because your health definitely comes first.

While some mole placements mean that you're a little too extravagant, a mole on your wrist actually means something about where you've been in your life (via Times of India). There could even be an interesting career path in your future. Here's everything you need to know about that little speckle on your wrist.


A mole on your wrist means you've been through a lot

Go ahead and examine your wrist, then think about your past. If there's a little dot on your wrist, then there's a good chance that you've been through a lot. According to Times of India, a mole on your wrist represents experiencing a childhood where you were not exactly wealthy. Don't worry though, because there's also an upside. While the publication states that a wrist mole means early poverty, it also means that you became richer as you got older. Consider your mole a sign that you're living a real-life Cinderella story.


There's another aspect to your wrist markings as well. The publication, which seems to be a real master of knowing your moles, says that your wrist mole is also a sign that you're going to be an artist or live a creative life. Your career in the arts could also be a direct correlation to why you dealt with poverty at some point — just saying.

Of course, take your little mole reading with a grain of salt. While it's nothing to go and get it removed for, it is fun to see if the signs align with your own story.

There's a good chance that you have a wrist mole

It turns out that there's actually a good chance that you're looking down to see a spot on your wrist right now. According to Time, a whopping 12,000 people responded to one Twitter post about having a little brown dot on their wrist. In fact, the publication states that the marks are so common that almost everyone has a speckle on their wrist, but it might be a freckle instead of a mole.


"Freckles are basically areas of the skin where you have more pigment or melanin deposition from UV radiation," Dermatologist Dr. Joyce Park tells the publication. "The forearms, the wrists and the hands are really common spots to get that exposure. If you think about it, when you're driving, that side of your wrist and hand are just constantly being exposed to sunlight, even if you're wearing sleeves."

So while we've all been through a lot in our lives, and a majority of people have earned more money over their lives, but not everyone actually has a mole. What a wild world we live in where people are ready to read their wrists — not that we're writing it off!
