The unconscious is warning you, through this dream, that you are neglecting some important aspect of your personality. It may also indicate the beginning of a period of economic hardship. According to the esoteric interpretation, dreams of poverty are generally precursors to prosperity, well-being, love, and happiness, or at least ensure that the dreamer has no cause for concern. Popular superstition adds this advice: if you wake up with your hand itching, you should rub it on wood. This will bring good luck.
