Today is Friday the Thirteenth which is supposed to be very unlucky. Surprisingly for someone who is chronically superstitious, it doesn’t bother me. Probably because it is mainly a Christain superstition and I’m not Christain. (I have nothing against Christians.) But Friday is unlucky because it was the day Jesus was crucified and thirteen is unlucky because Jesus was betrayed by Judas who was seen as being the thirteenth disciple.
My religion is Wiccan and thirteen is actually a lucky number to us. In the Tarot deck the thirteenth card is the Death card but this is nothing to be afraid of because what the Death card really means is transformation; the death of the old life and the beginning of a new and better one. It often brings a pleasant change of circumstances. And in numerology (the occult power of numbers) thirteen is linked to the number four because if you add one and three, you get four. Four is linked to the earth and stability and the Zodiac sign of Taurus. It is the number of work and getting things done; this can be seen as boring but it is also progressive.
