Both traditional and esoteric schools of knowledge have their own various systems of categorizing and describing people. Face reading simplifies the whole procedure by explaining what each face shape actually means. This relates primarily to facial structures that are evident in everyday life. These simple geometric forms are a very useful key in forming a basic "snapshot" of your character.
There are four basic temperaments which are aligned to the elements, planets and signs of the zodiac. Each of these four character types is associated with a simple geometric shape. Broadly speaking, the mental or inverted triangular shaped face is ruled by Mercury, the circular or vital type by the Moon or Jupiter, the oblong or osseous type by Saturn and the muscular or square type by Mars. Each of these types has its own inherent physical, mental and emotional nuiances and expression.
So let's now look at these four elements in a little more detail and study your own or your friends' and family's particular face shapes and see what they really reveal. This is going to be fun! The width of your face can reveal how outgoing or reserved you’re – at least superficially.
