Left Hand Itching? Money May Be Coming To You!

Throughout our lives, we are surrounded by superstitious beliefs. From breaking mirrors to carrying a rabbit’s foot, some of these superstitions bring bad luck, and some bring good. When it comes to money, I bet we all wish we could have a bit more luck. Growing up, one thing I learned about was the luck-bringing belief about your left hand itching.

What Does It Mean When Your Palms Itch?

If you’re not superstitious, itchy hands may simply just be itchy hands. According to Healthline, itchy palms may also be a sign of:

  • Dry skin
  • Skin damage
  • Allergies
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Diabetes

However, if you’re experiencing an itchy left palm (or right palm) and you are spiritual, it can mean something completely different. According to different cultures around the world, one palm itching symbolizes that you will receive money, and the other means you will lose money.

What Does It Mean When Your Left Hand Itches?

According to my wise young mother, your left hand itching means that you are about to come into some money. 

Left to receive, right to give.

This good fortune you are about to receive could come in many different forms and amounts. 

You could find a shiny quarter on the ground or win the lottery for a billion dollars. The dresser you have been trying to sell online for the longest time could suddenly get an offer on it tomorrow, or you get an unexpected raise at work. The possibilities are endless, if you believe.

Of course, I wouldn’t make any rash life changes because of expecting money from my palm itching, but this crazy superstition has worked out well for some. In one such case, is the story of Mary Shammas.

Mary Shammas won $64 million dollars in 2010. She was riding the bus home in Brooklyn, New York when her left hand was itching. So, she got off the bus and went to buy a lottery ticket. Her left palm was itching so much, she knew it must have meant something, and she was right! That night, she became a millionaire. 

On the other hand, my mother also let me know that the fortunate hand for each person is different. In order to know yours, you have to track what happens in the days after you experience your palms itching. 

 Also, it’s believed that you should have someone scratch that lucky palm with their opposite hand to enhance the fortune. Meaning, if your left hand is itching, you should have someone scratch it for you with their right hand.

Before he was famous, the actor Jim Carrey wrote a check to himself for $10 million dollars for “acting services rendered” and dated it for 10 years later. Guess what happened after ten years? He received a movie role that paid him $10 million dollars! Check out these blank abundance checks if you would like to make your own.

There is so much power in faith. To get rid of your doubts and stay positive, take a look at these powerful financial affirmations for manifesting money by the law of attraction.

What Does It Mean If Your Right Hand Palm Is Itchy?

Now if your left hand is the fortunate one, then your right hand is the unfortunate one. 

Your right palm itching could symbolize that you are about to lose money. It can come at a time when your bills are due or new expenses pop out of nowhere.

This means your car could suddenly break down or your refrigerator isn’t running and you have to catch that repairman to fix it (Ha! Sorry I’m not very funny).

Whatever happens, a case of an itchy right hand means bad financial luck, unless it’s not your giving hand.

This is a good time to mention the importance of saving money for these turn of events. It’s simple to start a budget and create an emergency savings.

What Does Itching Mean Spiritually?

From a religious standpoint, there is also something to be said about this superstition. On the subject of itching hands, the Bible says that:

 “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.” – (Matthew 6:3 New International Version (NIV))

From this, one could assume that the right hand gives, and the left hand receives; However, another passage could be interpreted as the opposite:

“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” – (Isaiah 41:13 New International Version (NIV))

Maybe the right hand both gives and receives? The right hand itching could still mean good fortune for receiving money and also giving money out of benevolence. But, the left hand could mean losing money or giving money, but not in a charitable way.

In the Hindu religion, the Goddess Lakshmi symbolizes good fortune, wealth, fertility, and prosperity. When your left palm itches, people in India believe it means that the Goddess is leaving you. Therefore, right to receive, left to give. However, the meaning of the left hand itching is different for a female. The left palm itching is supposed to bring fortune for her, while the right hand itching means the female will lose money.

I don’t know if that’s really true or just a coincidence, but I received a job offer that same week. You can buy a lucky cat here.

  14. My experience has always been that when my right hand itch, I receive money. It happened to me a few weeks ago and I received a check I had no idea I was receiving. The important thing is that I did not scratch it. I did not scratch my right hand and I actually ignored it. My left hand itch everytime I have to pay out money.

    1. That’s interesting that you ignored it. Whenever my mother had itching in her left hand, she’d ask me to scratch it for luck.
