Even though almost every occurrence in this world has been listed as a superstition by now, there still remains one that’s not much talked about – ITCHING IN THE TOES.
In this article, we’ll uncover all the spiritual reasons behind itching in the left or right toe as well as the superstitions around it.
So, let’s jump straight into it, shall we?
What Does It Mean When Your Toe Itches?
Well… One of the first things that may come to mind when your toe itches is that a bug inside your blanket probably bit you during the night.
And, while that could be a possibility, chances that you came in contact with irritants like allergens, bacteria, or fungus are pretty high too.
If, however, that’s not the case, you may be at risk of something much bigger like diabetes or liver disease since itchiness in the toes is a common symptom between these two conditions.
Left Big Toe Itching Female Superstition
If you’re a female, and sense itching in your left big toe, it is not a good sign.
You’re going to go through a phase of extremely bad luck and misfortune!
In a few articles of mine, I’ve talked about how itchiness in the left foot is believed to bring bad luck.
- But, exactly what kind of bad luck are we talking about here?
- How bad is it?
- Will it only affect our personal life or work as well?
Well… There’s no clear or “direct” answer to any of those questions so I’d say it totally depends.
You could get fired from the job you worked soo hard to get, have your valuable possessions stolen, lose money at the hands of a bad investment, or even just face unfair treatment or defeat.
Right Big Toe Itching Female Superstition
Itching in the right big toe, however, is a GREAT sign!
It means good luck is coming your way!
Your chances of winning a huge lottery may go up and if you’ve been unemployed for a while now, you may be accepted for a stable job that allows you to support not only yourself but your family as well.
Relationships ruined in the past will start to get better or you may enter a new relationship that will have a perfect balance of platonic and romantic energy.
Setbacks and issues in life will eventually be resolved on their own and you’ll also find yourself becoming more content with the person you truly are, therefore, boosting confidence and motivation to push forward.
7 Spiritual Meanings Of An Itchy Big Toe (Left & Right)
1) Changes In Lifestyle
If you feel itching in your left big toe, it indicates that there are certain changes in your lifestyle that you’re just not getting used to.
Some examples may include:
- Suddenly switching to a crash diet for rapid weight gain/loss;
- No movement or physical activity for a while;
- Sudden excessive smoking or drinking;
- Too much stress and responsibilities;
Although the human body is very quick to adapt, these sudden changes in your lifestyle may be causing some discomfort and confusion in your mind which is made further evident by the itchiness in your left big toe.
Letting go of these negative lifestyle changes or taking things slow is the best thing to do in such cases.
2) You’ve Been Reflecting On Your Past & It’s Hurting You
If you’ve been having strong itching in your left big toe, it is a sign from the universe that you should stop pondering over your past because it’s hurting you more and more every day.
This itching may get stronger every time you come across a person that is associated with your past or visit a place that appears to be familiar to you.
You’ve made mistakes, done terrible things, hurt people, or chosen paths that you later regretted choosing and you think constantly reminding yourself of what you DID will help you become a better version of yourself.
But, all it’s really doing is hindering your ability to understand what you CAN do.

3) You’re Afraid Of Loved Ones Will Leave You
Another common interpretation of an itchy left big toe is that you’re afraid of losing people in your life.
It could be a partner, family member, or friend you’re really attached to and don’t want to lose in any way.
This fear of losing someone important may stem from childhood trauma, abuse, or social rejection and it might make you doubt whether people close to you would stick beside you in the long term or not.
The best way to deal with this is to focus on things you can actually control like making sure you spend quality time with them, sticking through the thick and thin, or keeping them out of harm’s way.
If you’re afraid of your loved ones dying, however, then there’s no direct solution to that and eventually you will have to come to terms with the fact that death is inevitable and there’s absolutely no way you can change the ultimate destiny of human life.
4) You’re About To Enter A New Relationship!
If you’re one of those people whose love life and relationships always sucked, feeling itchiness in your right big toe is a sign that things might start looking a little different soon.
You’ll be entering a new relationship that enlightens you with the true meaning of love and compassion.
Your past relationships will look or feel nothing like this one since you’ll be with the partner that was truly meant for you.
You’ll instantly click with them, find yourself connecting on a much deeper level, and will want to be with them even during their highs and lows.
5) You’ll Be Setting Out On A Journey Alone
This could be taken both literally and figuratively.
- Literally, it means you’ll be traveling to another town or country soon where you have no friends or family. It may be due to work, personal commitments, or even just a short vacation on your own.
- Figuratively, it could mean that you’ll be starting off a new journey in your personal or professional life that will require you to cut off some social interactions or go into hibernation mode for a while.
Setting out on this journey will allow you to really identify your moral values, strengths, weaknesses, career goals, or just the options you have in life.
It will also help you polish your mindset to become a better and stronger version of yourself.
6) You’ll Be Successful In Whatever You’re Doing
Feeling itchiness in your right big toe means that, whatever you’re doing right now, you’ll be successful at it.
It could be anything from starting a new business venture to applying for Harvard law school. If you’ve started hitting the gym to get your dream physique, chances are you’ll start seeing great results in no time!
However, be mindful of the fact that hard work and genuine effort still remain within the equation.
So, better not start celebrating success too early.
7) You’re Going In The Direction
If you have already planned out your goals in life, frequent itching in your right big toe might indicate that you’re moving towards them.
This itching may especially surface when you achieve smaller milestones that lead to your ultimate goal.
Just be careful NOT to deviate from the path you’re on right now because distractions and involvement in unnecessary things will only make it harder for you to focus on getting where you want to be.
Is Itching In The Big Toe A Bad Spiritual Sign?
It depends on a few factors…
First and foremost, do you feel itchiness in the left or right big toe? (Or both?)
Is the itching strong and frequent OR mild and less frequent?
Is the itching only in the big toe or the whole foot?
Depending on these factors, it may be easier to determine whether your itching is a bad spiritual sign or not.
BUT, as a general rule of thumb, just remember that itching in the left big toe is almost never a good sign so you must be very sharp and attentive for the next couple of days.
Itching in the right big toe (or foot), however, is nothing to worry about.
Positive events will unfold on their own and soon you’ll witness a bright ray of sunshine strike your dark and gloomy life with your own eyes.
Should I Be Concerned?
In case of your left big toe itching – YES!
Bad luck is about to enter your life and it will not only affect you but perhaps your family members or other people close to you too.
You should be concerned about their safety as well as their mental and physical well-being since bad luck could take a toll on both aspects.
However, apart from just bad luck, you should also look out for lifestyle changes that the itching may be trying to warn you about.
DO NOT let yourself sink deep into your past trauma, regrets, and the mistakes you made because they’re just deviating you from a better future.
Before you leave, read the spiritual meaning of itching legs.
Well, after reading all that’s written above, there’s one thing you must know by now – feeling itchiness in your big toe could have a much deeper meaning to it than you might think.
It is not only a sign from the universe but also grabs the attention of a lot of superstitious people.
The itching holds spiritual meaning and suggests that certain lifestyle changes or fears may be negatively affecting you and you might want to let go of them for the better.
On the other hand, good things arrive when this itching is felt in the right big toe. So, if that’s where your itching is located, consider yourself very lucky!
