Friday 13th & the Feminine

81f551274210531ef94de3b03dbb836abf1dd550_mPerverse creature that I am, I always thought Friday the 13th should be lucky. Turns out, I’m right!

13 is a lucky number at least it used to be.

Why? Societies used to track time by the moon. We have 13 moons in a year, so all the lunar calendars (Jewish, Egyptian, etc) were based on thirteen. And the age of thirteen is when kids are called to the Bar for their Bar Mitzvah.

 

When I was a kid in Sunday school class, I remember one of my teachers saying 12 was lucky, because that was the number of Disciples. But it was thirteen if you counted Jesus. Or if you counted Mary Magdalene, who some say was the thirteenth disciple.

You now, women + moon = menses. I don’t know about you, but there’ve been times when it felt like the moon was pulling my insides out on a monthly basis.

And Friday is a feminine power day too. Named after Frig or Freya, the most powerful feminine Norse goddess. She also had ties to Venus—another feminine symbol.

There’s only one Friday the 13th this whole year, but she’s a doozy. Today is also a full moon and if you consult you astrological calendar, you’ll see today Mercury is retrograde, which basically means communications do not go as planned. Contracts should not be signed today. It’s a good day to generate ideas though. Brainstorm!

How else can you take advantage of Friday the 13th and harness some of its power?
