In this post you’ll discover the spiritual meaning of itchy hands or palms, according to superstition.

In fact:

Depending on whether you are experiencing left or right hand itching, it could mean completely different things!

I’m excited to share these discoveries with you.

Plus, at the end of this article I’m going to reveal the most common signs from heaven that a deceased loved one is still with you.

Ready to find out what it means when your hand itches?

Let’s get started!

The Meaning of Having Itchy Palms

What Does it Mean When Your Right Hand Itches?

The right hand has very important spiritual meanings. It is considered to be our receiving hand and is symbolic of good fortune.

Isaiah 41:13 says, “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’” Open your right hand in order to receive God’s blessing.

Now that we know the significance of your right hand, let’s find out what it means when your palm starts itching.

Several ancient superstitions claim that having an itchy right palm means you will receive money soon. This money can come in many forms.

For example, right hand itching can indicate that you will receive a reward soon. This could be a sign that you are about to win the lottery, find money on the ground, or get an unexpected raise.

When your right hand itches, check your pockets for unexpected money and keep an eye out for a surprise gift soon.

If you are in the process of selling your home or car, an itchy palm might mean that you will receive a generous offer. This is a very good sign.

You might also experience itchy palms immediately before payday or when you are expecting a check in the mail.

The superstition does not reveal exactly how much money you will receive, just that you should be open to a financial windfall.

Itchy palm superstitions also say that you should not scratch your itch as it could cancel your good fortune.

What Does it Mean When Your Left Hand Itches?

When your left palm itches it might not be a very good sign. Left hand itching could reveal that you are about to encounter financial troubles.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 says, “A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.”

The left side is symbolic of bad decisions and can mean that you are about to lose money or receive an unexpected bill. Your financial problems were likely caused by a mistake that led you down the wrong path.

For instance, when your left palm itches you might have to pay for urgent car repair bills, home maintenance costs, or medical bills.

You might experience itching on your left hand when bills are due but are worried that you don’t have enough money to pay them. This can also mean that you are struggling to pay off debts such as credit cards, car payments or student loans.

An itchy left palm could also indicate a down turn in the economy will happen soon. Be prepared when you turn on the news tonight, as it may reveal sudden changes in the stock market, economy, or unemployment rates.

The good news is that there is hope. Isaiah 41:10 says “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

To receive God’s help all we need to do is ask and it will be given to us (Matthew 7:7).

Signs From Heaven That a Deceased Loved One is with You

Here are the 15 most common signs that a deceased loved one is with you:

1. Feathers on the Ground

The next time you pass by a feather on the ground, don’t ignore it. Feathers are one of the most common ways to receive messages from angels and deceased loved ones in heaven.

2. Finding Pennies and Dimes

One way that a deceased loved one might send you a sign is by placing pennies, dimes or quarters on the ground in front of you. I like to call them “pennies from heaven” and they are a special way to remember loved ones that have passed away.

When was the last time you had itchy palms? Please leave a comment and let me know.
I notice my left palm started itching me during June 2019 but I think it's started earlier before then, and during that moment I noticed the itching, I was investing in stocks and I never gave it any thought in the superstitious view until now, because it still itches me and I'm wondering if it's here to stay because things have been really hard for me lately, but still I give God the Glory for still keeping me alive during this COVID-19, although stock crashed in 2020 and I lost a lot of money, which I thought would have killed me, but I'm surprised am still here... So I don't know what to say or if I want to believe if it's true because right now I don't want to be on the wrong boat. Thank you for the information

What if both hands itch at the same time ????
Kathy Purser
My right palm started itching out of the blue. If this is true I could use extra money. It's been a very long time ago that I had an itchy right hand
i don't think it matters, right or left itching palm...symbolizes good fortune in the form of money
Goodness Mogane
My right hand has been itching like crazy, all day been a week.. Usually It will itch for two days n get money but now it's been long n can't take it any longer
Debra Bradley
Honestly I have no idea but my right hand have been itching for a day or two. I pray its a blessing in the form of a new job with a good salary to take care of my kids. amen speaking it into existence.
When my left palm itches, I get money in 2-3 days. It's been this way since I was a young girl. Same thing with my Mom.

God richly bless the owner of this site. With the exception of dermatological cases, I have learnt this phenomenon of itching palm for over ten years because of a spiritual battle I am involve in. What I have observed is this: An itching palm means that you owes a debt which your enemies are demanding that you pay in exchange for your freedom or breakthrough. But do you really know who you should pay? The money may surface after a few days or hours. if the money refuse to show up then like Sampons, your foes are , making fun of you. Sometimes you know very well that you don't owe anyone but i say you owe ignorantly. When you fail to heed to this sign, it may lead to piercing of your palm (Psalms 22:16) and your poverty will last as long as your ignorance. Your property will be shared by your enemies(Psalms 22:18) . Sons of men open your eyes and ask God for understanding, knowledge and wisdom. Shalom!!!!
Serious my palm has been itching, sometimes it right atimes left or even both... I pray that it brings me good luck.
I m facing itchiness on right hand since a long time

Without a doubt if your left hand is itching you are getting money soon; if your right hand is itching pay attention you got some money going out and it's probably on a bill that's coming due; when your hand starts itching to start thinking about what bills are due or very very nearly due; maybe even today! Pay attention God Is alerting You ; oh no, my right hand is itching right now and tomorrow's is tax day!

Mgbado Emmanuel
Pls I have a question my name is mgbado Emmanuel Katonnety, few weeks back I had an itchy foot precisely right, I went online and checked for the spiritual implications, to my greatest dismay it meant I was going to head on a different path entirely and two days later I was fired from work. I slept that same night and had a dream rather a. Night mare as it were. A man was giving out cash to people when it got to my turn he he stopped and gave me something to do if I wanted to earn the money. I'm deeply confused and need answers pls
