I’ve never known Friday the 13th to be anything less than a superstitious day. Quite honestly, for no good reason other than what our patriarchal society & Hollywood has created it to be. I grew up in the era of when Mike Meyers and Friday the 13th movies were box office hits. I remember being so fearful of Friday the 13th. Can I get an amen?
This morning I woke up feeling amazing and so grateful for life. I looked at my calendar and realized it was Friday the 13th. My Spirit Guide Healing Master, Cebu was in my ear and said, “It’s not what you think it is, my Goddess…” Which took me by surprise because he never calls me “Goddess” however he is quite funny so I thought maybe he was just poking at me. So I decided to do a little research on what Friday the 13th really is all about.
Cebu is always right-Goddess. Come to find out, the Spirituality behind Friday the 13th was actually a day to celebrate the Divine Feminine in all of us. A day of The Goddesses. I had a good chuckle with Cebu as of course our patriarchal descendants led us to believe that this is a day to fear. A day of the most unlucky. A day of unfortunate events. A day of superstition. Let’s be honest, since we moved into a patriarchal society, we have been taught to fear the power of the divine feminine, no wonder Friday the 13th became known as an unlucky day! A day that horror films are made of!
Friday the 13th has much deeper and more sacred roots than such superficial beliefs. It was considered a day to worship the Divine Feminine that lives in us all and to honor the cycles of creation and death and rebirth. It was a day to celebrate the feminine aspects present in our lives. A day to honor our ability to create and sustain life.
So, up until the patriarchal revolution, both Fridays and 13’s were held in the very highest esteem. Both the day and the number were associated with the Great Goddesses, and therefore, regarded as the sacred essence of luck and good fortune. Thirteen is certainly the most essentially female number — the average number of menstrual cycles in a year. The approximate number 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.
Also, friday was observed as the day of Her special celebrations. Many cultures around the world honor Friday as a sacred day. It is also the day of Venus, where we begin rest and relaxation. Friday is also sacred to Oshun, the Yoruban orisha of opulent sensuality and overwhelming femininity and Frig the Norse Goddess of love and sex, of fertility and creativity. Her name became the Anglo-Saxon noun for love, and in the sixteenth century, frig came to mean *to copulate.
On this most misdriven of days, let us honor and celebrate our Divine Feminine & Lady Luck and squash the idea of misfortune, horror and superstition. We truly are moving towards a time when male, female and non genders are encapsulating both the divine feminine and masculine energies. Let’s honor all of our most Divine Feminine energy today! It’s also a wonderful time to manifest and create through this energy.
