Ancient secrets revealed. Ancient people saw the entire world as composed of spirits. There are good and evil spirits. One wants to protect oneself and one’s family from evil. Blue is considered a holy color. The Blue eye to ward off the evil eye. These traditions at least 3,000 years old continue today. My mom wore these “evil eye” protection bracelets towards the end of her life. She had survived breast cancer and she told me her mother has always believed in the evil eye and they had all kinds of “old wives tales” to protect themselves with. BBC article repost.
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.

Are you superstitious? Do you get all nervous because it’s Friday the 13th?
Do you freak out when black cats cross your path?
Friday the 13 in a 13 year. Twice as UNLUCKY?
The Number 13 which we normally thought of as bad luck was a relatively new idea instigated when the Catholic Church tried to demolish and demote anything remotely connected to paganism, wicca, the Ancient Goddess nature worshipping spirituality.
The # 13 is simply the number of LUNAR MONTHS in a year. In China and Japan, Muslim, Jewish and in Mayan spiritual and Native American counts, the ancient lunar calendar’s are still observed and followed.
13 is a natural rhythm, if we also lived by the lunar calendar the entire Western culture would be much more harmonious. Especially for women. I vote to reinstate a Lunar Calendar and get rid of this artificial Gregorian calendar.
Women were once considered to be the Moon incarnate, magical, mystical and totally connected to nature. Women’s bodies are in synch with the Moon’s lunar influences as are the ocean’s tides. Therefore the fear of women’s bodies, sexuality and bleeding was created by the Christian church who also created what we think of as the Devil and “witches.” The Church persecuted and tortured over 9 million,yes you nine million, mainly herbalists, mid-wives and other simple people who lived simply close to nature for over 300 years is a total brainwashing campaign and made the # 13 seem negative or scary.
So no fear of the # 13. In fact celebrate it, It carries magically potent Goddess energy.
Double 13 is a sign of double blessings.
It’s time for all witches to “COME OUT.” Yes its become “trendy” because of Harry Potter. I know that J.K. Rowling channelled Harry Potter. I believe that was past life memory which she, as a writer, altered her innate knowledge for a modern teen audience. That’s why it started this huge resurgence. There are 9 million of you who are alive now who remember honoring the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and being tortured in the most cruel way because of your devotion. Yes you do know it deep down. Reclaim your ancient love of the Goddess, The Earth, Nature and the Moon.
send me an email- firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a witch and proud of it. I do no harm, I advocate against Black magic and manipulating innocent people with fortune telling. I remember being burned at the stake by my Catholic inquisitors. I was also initiated as green witch by Susun Weed, at her beautiful farm in Woodstock New York in 1987. I have been serving the Goddess as one of her High Priestesses for thousands of years.
The Moon is in earthy Taurus ruled by Venus. It’s Perfect. Do what makes you feel good in body, heart, mind and soul. Don’t throw salt over your shoulder, or worry if you break a mirror or open an umbrella in the house, walk under a ladder etc. Trust your gut instincts not your false fear. You know that acronym of F.E.A. R. False evidence appearing real? Don’tcha worry ’bout a thing.
I send you DOUBLE LUCKY GODDESS ENERGY today.

COMET LOVEJOY On November 7 2013
While anxiously waiting for COMET ISON to brighten further as it falls toward the Sun, northern skygazers can also find three other bright comets in the east before dawn. Comet Lovejoy C/2013 R1 is now the morning sky’s brightest. Only discovered in September and not a sungrazing comet, COMET LOVEJOY is nearing the edge of naked-eye visibility and might be spotted from very dark sky sites. Sporting a greenish colored coma and tail in this telescopic view taken on November 7, COMET LOVEJOY is about 0.5 AU from our fair planet and 1.2 AU from the Sun. The comet is having a photogenic Messier moment, sweeping past well-known STAR CLUSTER M44, the Beehive in Cancer. Yellowish bright star Delta Cancri is near the bottom of the frame.
COMETS have always been met by fear in the past as harbinger’s or signs of trouble. Giant bright balls of light with tails thousands of miles long appear mysteriously in the night sky for days or weeks then disappear. Our ancesters might have thought they were heavenly messengers sent to watch us down below..
FROM NASA’s page on comets in ancient times below
Comets have inspired dread, fear, and awe in many different cultures and societies around the world and throughout time. They have been branded with such titles as “the Harbinger of Doom” and “the Menace of the Universe.”
They have been regarded both as omens of disaster and messengers of the gods. Why is it that comets are some of the most feared and venerated objects in the night sky? Why did so many cultures cringe at the sight of a comet?
When people living in ancient cultures looked up, comets were the most remarkable objects in the night sky. Comets were unlike any other object in the night sky. Whereas most celestial bodies travel across the skies at regular, predictable intervals, so regular that constellations could be mapped and predicted, comets’ movements have always seemed very erratic and unpredictable. This led people in many cultures to believe that the gods dictated their motions and were sending them as a message.
What were the gods trying to say? Some cultures read the message by the images that they saw upon looking at the comet. For example, to some cultures the tail of the comet gave it the appearance of the head of a woman, with long flowing hair behind her. This sorrowful symbol of mourning was understood to mean the gods that had sent the comet to earth were displeased.
Others thought that the elongated comet looked like a fiery sword blazing across the night sky, a traditional sign of war and death. Such a message from the gods could only mean that their wrath would soon be unleashed onto the people of the land. Such ideas struck fear into those who saw comets dart across the sky. The likeness of the comet, though, was not the only thing that inspired fear.
Ancient cultural legends also played a hand in inspiring a terrible dread of these celestial nomads. The Roman prophecies, the “Sibylline Oracles,” spoke of a “great conflagration from the sky, falling to earth,” while the most ancient known mythology, the Babylonian “Epic of Gilgamesh,” described fire, brimstone, and flood with the arrival of a comet.
Rabbi Moses Ben Nachman, a Jew living in Spain, wrote of God taking two stars from Khima and throwing them at the earth in order to begin the great flood. Yakut legend in ancient Mongolia called comets “the daughter of the devil,” and warned of destruction, storm and frost, whenever she approaches the earth. Stories associating comets with such terrible imagery are at the base of so many cultures on Earth, and fuel a dread that followed comet sightings throughout history.

Comets’ influence on cultures is not limited simply to tales of myth and legend, though. Comets throughout history have been blamed for some of history’s darkest times. In Switzerland, Halley’s Comet was blamed for earthquakes, illnesses, red rain, and even the births of two-headed animals.
The Romans recorded that a fiery comet marked the assassination of Julius Caesar, and another was blamed for the extreme bloodshed during the battle between Pompey and Caesar. In England, Halley’s Comet was blamed for bringing the Black Death. The Incas, in South America, even record a comet having foreshadowed Francisco Pizarro’s arrival just days before he brutally conquered them.
Comets and disaster became so intertwined that Pope Calixtus III even excommunicated Halley’s Comet as an instrument of the devil, and a meteorite, from a comet, became enshrined as one of the most venerated objects in all of Islam. Were it not for a Chinese affinity for meticulous record keeping, a true understanding of comets may never have been reached.
Unlike their Western counterparts, Chinese astronomers kept extensive records on the appearances, paths, and disappearances of hundreds of comets. Extensive comet atlases have been found dating back to the Han Dynasty, which describe comets as “long-tailed pheasant stars” or “broom stars” and associate the different cometary forms with different disasters.
Image Right: The Mawangdui silk, a ‘textbook’ of cometary forms and the various disasters associated with them, was compiled sometime around 300 B.C. Click on image for larger view. Image credit: NASA/JPL
Although the Chinese also regarded comets as “vile stars,” their extensive records allowed later astronomers to determine the true nature of comets.
Although most human beings no longer cringe at the sight of a comet, they still inspire fear everywhere around the globe, from Hollywood to doomsday cults. The United States even set up the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) program specifically to guard us from these “divine” dangers.” However, although they were once regarded as omens of disaster, and messengers of the god(s), today a scientific approach has helped allay such concerns.
It is science and reason that has led the fight against this fear since the days of the ancients. It is science and reason that has emboldened the human spirit enough to venture out and journey to a comet. It is science and reason that will unlock the secrets that they hold.
