What Does It Mean When Your Left Hand Itches?

There is an old wives’ tale that claims an itch on the left palm will bring money into one’s life. Mary Shammas decided to play the lottery when her left hand became inexplicably itchy, and she won $64 million, so she is clearly a believer.
Of course, this superstition passes down by word of mouth, so it can change over time and varies culture-to-culture. Farmer’s Almanac and LuckMoneyMyth believe it’s an itchy right palm that brings money, while the SpeakingTree backs up the traditional theory that a woman’s itchy left palm brings wealth.
If an itch in the palm is consistent, it’s important to check with a doctor in case there are any health concerns. With superstitions circulating our lives, it is up to you which ones you choose to believe in.
