I love Friday the 13th.
It’s always been a lucky day for me (that reminds me, pick up a lottery ticket today). I have a long history of loving the number 13 in general – I was born at 3:13pm, my sister was born at 11:13am (I think, but this may be family legend), which always made me feel special and connected to the number.
My romance with my future husband started at a Friday the 13th party I threw in honour of the day. We got married on Friday the 13th (this date was chosen on purpose, of course). This year we will celebrate our 13th anniversary.
My friends make a point of wishing me “Happy Friday the 13th” because they know the significance it has for me.
So, whenever this holy day rolls around, I love to watch people’s reactions. Apprehension, excitement, complete indifference…all across the spectrum.
I love Friday the 13th because it is a day we notice, it is not just a regular day, it calls attention to itself whether or not you believe in the superstition. I love this day because it is a little thrilling, scary, there is the feeling of the unknown and that anything could happen. This is one of those days when it feels like the veil is a little bit thinner than others. When I say that this is a lucky day for me, I don’t mean to domesticate the energy…there is still a feeling of wildness and unknown in that luck.
Today, I encourage you to explore your feelings about the unknown, about the future…does it scare you? If so, why? When you use the cards or get a Tarot reading, do you ask about the future? Do you believe in fate, free will, or a combination of the two?
In honour of Friday the 13th, draw a card for yourself. Ask the cards, “How can I make the most of the energy on this Friday the 13th?”.
I did it, and I got the Wheel of Fortune. Don’t you just love the cards! Hang on for the ride, embrace the unknown, know that things may get wild but that luck is on your side.
Let me know what card you pulled, did it make sense to you?
Happy Friday the 13th!
What a great day to get a Tarot reading…book yours with me today! Make the most of that Friday the 13th energy!
