It is Friday the 13th, Many believe that the number 13 is unlucky.
This superstition is especially prevalent in the west.
There are buildings such as high rises, hotels, hospitals, and airports that do not name the 13th floor or avoid using it for rooms or gates.
In the bible, the last supper had 13 guests.
The list goes on..
Many people have phobias and steer clear of anything with the number 13 in it.
Then we get a Friday the 13th, and they won't even leave their homes.
But before Christian times and the rise of patriarchy, the number 13 was a sacred number, especially for women, and Friday the 13th packed even a bigger punch of good mojo.
A friend gave this writing to me today and I wanted to share it with you.
Friday the 13th
The day of the Divine Feminine
Before patriarchal times, Friday the 13th was considered the day of the Goddess. It was considered a day to worship the Divine Feminine that lives in all and to honer the cycles of creation and death and rebirth.
Friday the 13th was considered a very powerful day to manifest, honor creativity and to celebrate beauty, wisdom and nourishment of the soul.
The number 13 also holds and extremely potent feminine energy and is considered to be the number of death and rebirth, creation, fertility and blood.
This is because we have 13 moon cycles every year and the average woman also experiences 13 periods per year.
So on the next Friday the 13th - which will be January 2023, enjoy the feminine energy and worship your inner goddess. We all have one, regardless of your gender. #fridaythethirteenth #friday13th #fridaythe13th
