Are you superstitious? Friday the 13th is known for “Bad luck” and is feared by millions of people. It actually has a scientific name for fear of #13 triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. It’s a popular urban myth. It’s really a misconstrued misogynist mindfrack originating with the Catholic church. The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and shifted from fear and superstition to a positive understanding of what 13 stands for.
The true meaning of Friday the 13th and why I love it.The truth will set you free. Pet a black cat today and break a few mirrors. Breaking mirrors is a psychological metaphor for breaking free of your projections.
Why do I love Friday the 13th? Thirteen is the sacred number of the Goddess, the DIVINE FEMININE because it is the number of annual LUNAR cycles. Friday is named in honor of the Nordic Goddess Freya who is also the planet/ Goddess Venus. The Moon is one of the main embodiments of the Goddess. Women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized to the moon and women were seen to be earthly representatives of the Goddess, her mysteries and immortality. Pagans worshipped the Goddess,the moon and nature’s cycles.
To further suppress Goddess worship, the church made the number 13 into something evil, feared and superstitious as they feared women’s powers as an inversion.
Friday the 13th is really an anti-pagan Goddess day and I don’t like it continuing to be portrayed that way in error. This keeps unconsciously programming fear of the feminine, intuition, magic, nature, menstrual blood, and women’s power.
Black cats are “familiars” of witches. All cats absorb negative energies and are highly sensitive to spirits and other energies which we normally can’t sense. If you’ve ever had a cat of any color you know this.
On this day, Friday the 13th I honor the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and the lunar cycles. I remember and honor myself and all women as holders of the mysteries within our bodies.
Always choose LOVE over Fear.
I choose to love and honor the real positive magic of being alive; naturally intuitive and connected imminently with nature.
Also I do not believe in superstitious curses and the like. Yes there are negative energies and entities and black magic though wicked intentions which can be thrown at you. It is all energy. Please don’t pay phony psychics say they will remove any curses, perform rituals,light candles or pray for you for exorbitant prices.
