I have a small black mole on the side of my left foot…
My parents and I noticed it when I was a kid. My mom said that means “lakwatsera” and “makati and paa”. Lakwatsera is a Tagalog word meaning “wanderlust” and “makati ang paa” is a Tagalog phrase and idiom meaning “itchy feet”.
There is a Filipino belief that if you have a mole on your feet, that means a person loves wandering to places. Base from my recent research about hidden meanings of moles in the body, a Chinese belief says that, a mole on your feet denotes a life filled with travel both for pleasure as well as for work. They said is a mole is small and is a dot, it means happiness in travel. However, when a mole is too large, it means that travel brings problems.
Whatever that truly means, those beliefs have been true to me and how I’ve been enjoying my travels.
