Happy Friday the 13th!
According to our friends The HoodWitch over on Instagram, Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13! Friday the 13th being associated with “bad luck” and “evil” is one of the most recognized superstitions in western culture. Where does a fear of Friday the 13th come from in the first place?
A quick google search confirms and reinforces it, as only scary pics of Jason and black cats appear. 😒 Might be cool to google the “true” meaning of Friday the 13th to get a better understanding of it.
Thirteen is certainly the most essentially female number:
🧚🏾♀️The average number of menstrual cycles in a year.
🌕The approximate number, too, of annual cycles of the moon.
🌿 Thirteen is the number of blood, fertility, and lunar potency.
👸🏽13 is the lucky number of the Great Goddess✨
It’s time we take back the power of certain symbols, rituals, holidays and observances by understanding the true meaning and intent behind why they were created. 🙅🏽♀️
