When our ears are itching, is it just a moment of skin irritation or maybe cosmic energy trying to tell us something?
It could very well be due to a sudden dryness in the air, but as you would have it, Chinese superstition have some things to say about it.
The Chinese Almanac states that when an ear is suddenly itching uncontrollably… you should scratch it.
What the book actually says is that when the left ear or right ear itches, it can mean different things according to the animal zodiac hour in which the itch happens.
Here’s a table chart for easy reference.
