Left hand itching and its meaning?

Itchy left palm means what, it means you are about to receive money

It totally makes sense to me as I always believe right hand represents the fact of giving money

This left hand right hand roles became clear to me when I found in the holy bible

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. ‘ (Matthew 6:1-4)

So in bible too, right hand gives while left hand receives money

Other cultures beliefs about left and right hands itching

According to Farmersalmanac it is the other way around, right hand receives money while left hand gives money

Confused, right? well it all depends on your culture and where you put your credence

For myself, since I related it to the bible saying do not let your left hand know what your right is doing

This means in my belief the right hand was giving money and the bible wants you to separate the act of giving with receiving – practice helping people even if you are not expecting money coming to you

In Russian culture and many other cultures, if you get a bird poop on your car or your clothes, this means you are getting money in the near future

What if left hand itching persists

In this case, I have to tell you to go and see a doctor

Whatever you believe, you have to put science on top of
