Why the right and left hand itch: the essence of a well-known omen

AstroObozLife
The stronger the itching, the more powerful the omen's effect

People have long sought life clues in various random events, referring to them as omens. One such random event includes body reactions, such as itching. One of the most common signs of this type is associated with itching in the palms of the hands.

OBOZREVATEL inquired about superstitions related to this and explained why the right-hand itches and why the left hand itches.

The left hand

Most people are aware that itching in the left palm is considered a harbinger of money. The stronger and more frequent this itch, the faster one is believed to receive profits. It can be either cash or a transfer to a card - the modern version of the sign applies to both forms.

A strong itch also indicates that a significant amount of money is expected. Whether it's an old debt, an honorarium, a gift, or even a bill, the sign makes no distinction between the types of money.

Superstitious individuals even follow a special ritual to enhance the effect of this sign. After feeling an itch in the left palm, take a bill, preferably of the largest denomination. It's also considered helpful to touch your right pocket with your left hand, believed to further increase profits.

Less commonly, this sign is interpreted as a warning of quick spending. Some believe that as soon as you get your hands on money, you will immediately part with it.

The right hand

If the right hand is itching, it is regarded as a harbinger of an unexpected meeting, usually a pleasant and joyful one.

People also consider the day of the week when the right hand itches: 

  • Monday - you will meet an acquaintance;
  • Tuesday - an unexpected meeting with an old friend;
  • Wednesday - a pleasant new acquaintance;
  • Thursday - anticipate a date; 
  • Friday - a romantic meeting ahead;
  • Saturday - you will encounter your love;
  • Sunday - fate will bring you across as a respectable person, perhaps a high-ranking official.

A less common version of the sign suggests that itching on the right hand is a sign that a lot of negativity has accumulated in the body. It's time to let these emotions out. Express your negative feelings to the person who causes them, whether face-to-face or simply by writing down everything that makes you feel unbalanced.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told why the sign does not allow you to wipe the table with your hand.
