Now, why the fear and trepidation for us mere mortals? Well, that was a function of making a blessed pagan practice into a forbidden occult activity.
The best way to tackle fear, information of course!
First let’s tackle Friday.
Friday was so-named because of the Goddess Freya.
The day of week known as Friday is named for the Norse Goddess Freya. Friday is Freya’s day. Freya is a fierce Goddess known for her beauty beauty, and ability to be victorious in battle, embracing death and rebirth, she accomplished in sorcery, as well as overseeing the mysteries of sexuality and fertility. Thus, Freya as Venus is a powerful expression of the divine feminine most likely from pre-patriarchal times.
Guardian of thresholds, Freya was called upon to assist in the passage through birth, orgasm, and death. She holds destiny in her hand and her sexuality is the source of her power.” – Cayelin Castell
Freya’s influence on culture could not be eradicated completely even by the church.
Now, what about the 13th?
13 is the number completion and for many 13 represents the return of the Divine Feminine including the mysteries connected with Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Shekinah and Sophia representing the natural rhythms and cycles coming into sacred balance.
13 is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. It transcends matter and is coded with the frequencies of Ascension, Oneness and Unity that transforms all things. Since 13 is a prime number it is only divisible by itself representing purity – as 13 then is incorruptible and exists within its own integrity.
It is synchronistic that the 13th card in the Tarot is the Death card and the 13th rune in the Norse alphabet “Eiwaz” is also linked with the balance between light and dark, death and rebirth, the Heavens and the Underworld.
What does it all mean?
Back to the calendar date of Friday the 13th.
The date was originally considered a fortunate time for honoring the Goddess on her special day. In ancient times, the number 13 was a sacred number of the Goddess thus Friday the 13th was a day when Earth-based cultures honored the Goddess by staying home from normal work routines to celebrate her various expressions of love.
This practice was later vigorously discouraged by religious and political leaders who proclaimed both Friday and the number 13 unlucky. However, some traditions still consider the number 13 as the number that bonds the 12 into one, or turns multiplicity into oneness or wholeness.
Enjoy the energy that is the first of the Goddess celebration days this year and kiss a black cat today!
