Old wives tale - what does an itchy foot mean?

They say if your feet are itchy that means you can’t sit still. Others say it’s a sign that you’ll be traveling soon, or taking a great journey.

It seems to have a similar meaning as the hands in relation to the left foot versus the right foot. According to legend if your right foot is itching then your journey will lead you to a place in which you’ll be welcomed. In contrast the left foot would lead you on a journey that wouldn’t have a very good ending.

It’s also said that itching feet may have something to do with sorrow. Some believe that it’s a sign you’re going to get new shoes, and breaking in those shoes may cause you some sorrow. There seems to be more confusion about the itching feet than anything.

One even says that it could either be a sign someone in your family is going to die or that someone may be talking about you while you’re walking. Those are some pretty unrelated thoughts on the subject.
