Itching Supersitions - Itchy left foot - Itchy hands
Uncover hidden superstitions meanings
There are so many superstitions behind a body part that is itching.
Most notably the feet seem to be the most famous: left itchy foot, the ear itching, and itching nose. In ancient history if we look back to the 1930’s superstitions they believed that the foot was related to a journey - to travel. Here we cover all superstitions related to itching. Firstly, let's begin with the feet. So if the right foot itches then this this means a forthcoming journey will require planning - that the person is sure to travel. Some superstitious that focus on the actual top of the foot state that someone is talking about you. Itching of the sole means the journey is going to be lucrative. Itching around the left foot (but not the sole), however, implies that the journey might not be enjoyable. When the itching is around the sole of the left toe, this means that losses maybe experienced due to the journey.
The right foot is often referred as the positive foot, in that if this itches then positive things will happen. Itching ankles can denote that a married man will have an imminent rise in wealth. Itchy legs foretell an uncomfortable surprise. Itching around the left knee indicates that a journey maybe filled with misfortune. When itching is around the right knee, however, a long journey is anticipated. Itchy toes means that a journey is going to be highly challenging. Itching around the thighs signify a new residence. An itching knee can suggest that someone will be showing signs of jealousy. If the neck is itching then this can suggest that one will be hanged. Obviously, in this day and age hanging is not that common!
What do Itching Palms mean?
There are lots of superstitions and myths about the palms. To have an itching right palm suggests that one will gain money and some important news that will bring joy. For both hands to itch means that money will be yours and you will get some cash. Another superstition also claims that you shouldn’t scratch your palm if it is itching or otherwise you may keep money from coming your way. If the left palm is itching, this means you will be having to pay another person some cash. An itching thumb signifies that visitors will soon come to your home.
Some ancient superstitions state that itching can mean that one cannot sit still. Others say it’s an indication that you will be traveling soon, or going on a great journey. It is also stated in Victorian superstition books that itching is normally related to sorrow. Some think that it’s an indication you have to buy new footwear. There appears to be confusion concerning the itching of feet more than any superstition, as there are so many different meanings - but they are all connected to travel. One superstition in England said that itching feet mean you will soon die!
