It’s Saturday The 13th!

Why is it that people only lose their shit whenever the 13th falls on a Friday?

And why is it that Friday is consider an unlucky day when it is said to be ruled by Venus… the Planet of Love?

And why the hell do I even care?!?

Me? I do not consider 13 or Fridays to be unlucky. Because 13 is just a number and Friday is just a day.

Also, from a numerology standpoint, 13 adds up to 4, which is a number of stability (e.g. four tires on a car, four legs on a table or chair, etc.)… and Fridays were meant for cuttin’ lose and living free! Yeah, baby!

But just to be safe… try not to spill any salt; walk under any ladders, allow a black cat to cross your path, or dine with 12 of your closest friends today. And ummm… keep your chil’ren inside!

Ha! Kidding… not kidding?  {giggling}

Joanne’s thoughts on the number 13

Number 13 is the number of traditions, hard work,
organisation and right judgment. The Number 13 is also a feminine number and suggests that you tap into your intuition. [source]

 

Popular Myths About the Number 13

In ancient Babylon’s Code of Hammurabi, dating to about 1772 BC, the number 13 is omitted in its list of laws.

There has also been a longstanding myth that if 13 people dine together, one will die within a year. The myth comes from both the Last Supper, when Jesus dined with the 12 Apostles prior to his death, and a popular Norse myth, in which 11 close friends of the god Odin dine together only to have the 12-person party crashed by a 13th person, Loki, the god of evil and turmoil.

In fact, the number 13 has been considered cursed across the world for thousands of years. The number 12 is historically considered the number of completeness, while its older cousin, 13, has been seen as an outlier.

There are 12 months of the year; 12 gods of Olympus; 12 hours of the clock: 12 tribes of Israel; 12 Apostles of Jesus; 12 Descendants of Muhammad Imams, among many incidences of the pattern historically.

Thirteen is so disliked that many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue, many high-rise buildings avoid having a 13th floor, some hospitals avoid labeling rooms with the number 13 and many airports will not have a gate 13.

Get a grip, people and just have some fun… because the 13th only comes once a month… like EVERY other frickin’ day of the month!!!
