According to the The Shepherds Prognostication written in 1729 you can make prognostications from the stomach and breast, which are governed by Cancer.
This relates to a man, for the breast to be without hair signifies a man to be unshamefaced and fearful, if the breast be fleshy, to be inept to learn. If hairy on the breast, to be bold but unconstant. If the belly be small it signifieth it to be of good capacity, much hair from the navel downwards, to be full of words. If the belly bears out big, he is a great feeder.
