What Does It Mean When Your Ears Are Burning?

If you have ever had the experience of suddenly finding your ears burning, you could either be perplexed by the sensation… and even found it pleasing.

Some people suffer a gush of blood when they drink alcoholic beverages which can be attributed to red ears.

Sometimes, even a cute boy or girl can make us blush.

And sometimes a naughty friend flicks out ears so hard that it temporarily causes a red ear.

But what if none of those reasons can be attributed to a sudden burning sensation of the ears?

Well according to the Chinese Almanac (Tong Shu), feeling a sudden sensation of ear burning or itching, whether it’s left or right eat, can have various meanings depending on the hour in which it occurs.

Here’s a table chart for easy reference.
